The Dark Side

In 1610, Galileo Galilei published a small book describing astronomical observations that he had made of the skies above Padua. His homemade telescopes had less magnifying and resolving power than most beginners’ telescopes sold today, yet with them he made astonishing discoveries: that the moon has mountains and other topographical features; that Jupiter is orbited by satellites, which he called planets; and that the Milky Way is made up of individual stars.

the cure for weariness

Even More Beautiful

image001[A psalm of David, regarding a time when David was in the wilderness of Judah.]

O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for you. My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land where there is no water.

Psalm 63:1

Sometimes when I meditate on a verse, I try to think through God’s meaning by formulating what the verse might have said if God had given it to us with opposite wording. I’ll even search a thesaurus for antonyms. Then, I rephrase and rewrite the verse in what would be its opposite form.

If I do this exercise with Psalm 63:1, I’m startled by the contrasting picture the opposite-verse brings to mind. Here’s a photo of the image the antonym-version draws for us, and following the photo is my opposite-version of David’s original verse. Here’s the opposite-picture:

Here’s the opposite…

What Happened between Geneses 1:1 and Geneses 2:2, Part 1

Biblical Studies by Steve Jaynes

DSC_0087
To see what Happened between Geneses 1:1 and Geneses 2:2 I want to take you to 2 Peter chapter 3.

2 Peter 3:5–6 “For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:”

This is talking about the world that was and he is talking about that world was there in Genesis 1:1. The world that was originally created became overflowed with water and perished. Look at verse 7.

2 Peter 3:7 “But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.”

“But the heavens, and the earth which are now,” this is talking about the world that is…

Promises

Jim Gallagher

Jeremiah 29:11
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

The Bible is like a treasure chest filled with great and precious promises. It is designed to help the child of God navigate his way through life, and provide comfort during times of difficulty. While these promises are seemingly endless, there are certain ones that have had tremendous impact upon believers, down through the ages. Jeremiah 29:11 is one such promise. Written to a group of believers facing dark and difficult times, this verse is designed to provide hope, help and consolation.

Due to years of wandering from the ways of God, the people of Israel were overthrown by Babylonian forces. In accordance with the practices of the day, the defeated were taken captive to Babylon. Now, living as prisoners…

My personal insight into the feet of iron and clay with the help of God

dreamwalker1960

In the book Daniel a statue is seen in a dream by Nebuchadnezzar. It has been established through the passage of time that Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome were the first parts of the statute.
The feet of iron and clay people do not wish to place a label upon since the do not wish to place this combined group of nations to any time period. Why they are doing this I do not know, but when you apply the translation to the wording and use commonsense and understanding you can formulate a very strong possibility.
In Daniel 41-43 – And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet…

My Battle Plan against Depression, first steps

Anna E. Meyer

Sword Spiritual Warfare2 Corinthians 1:8-10: 8 We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about the troubles we experienced in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself. 9 Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. 10 He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us.

I have been looking into spiritual warfare a lot lately. I have also been reflecting on my inward struggles and have decided to draw up a battle plan. My biggest inward struggle is against the depression and anxiety that try to control the rest of me. It has been…
