    Did Joseph Reuse The Cave

    Have you ever wondered if Joseph of Arimathea used the tomb when it was his time? Some would say it was the place that The Lord Jesus rose from, don’t use it. Others might say, what better place to rest our hope than the place where Jesus rose from? I don’t know what Joseph chose to do, but I do know this. The tomb was a borrowed place, the grave clothes He left there, were borrowed things. The napkin, which had been about Jesus’ face, was discarded for Simon Peter to find. Borrowed things stayed in the cave, but what was The Lord Jesus’ property did not stay in the…

    Hand Raised In My Arms

    We were at Church today, during the Altar service, and Nicholas our two year old was tired. He was laying down in my arms, but The Man Of God was speaking, and he raised his little arm. Say what you want, but this little boy knew enough to know, it was time to praise The Lord. You might say this little boy was born in an altar.

So when Nicholas reaches up to The Father Who gave…

In Luke it literally says that Simon Peter rose, not from sleep, but standing up to…

    The Fringe

    Moses was wrongly accused by one he had helped to consecrate to God’s service. Korah, and the others tried to rise up against him, God would not allow it. The ground opened up and swallowed them. The Lord Jesus stood before the Sanhedrin, and the Pharisees, and they wrongly accused Him. The Lord could have stopped them, but He chose not too. We know why, it was because of His plan to rescue all who were lost. Yet it is an interesting parallel. According to Numbers 16:9, Moses alludes to Korah’s group seeking the Priesthood. Some scholars say the whole argument began over the command concerning the fringe of the…

    People Finders

    The following is a lesson I was privileged to teach last night at our Church, Point Of Mercy in Nashville, Tennessee. Our Senior Pastor Denny Livingston asked me to speak, and I was blessed to share the lesson People Finders. Key Text John 1:43-45 (ESV) 43 The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, “Follow me.” 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found him of whom Moses in the Law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” Jesus There are two…
