The Daysman

The Daysman

     In the East when two parties were not able to work out their differences, they may have sought out a daysman. Job 9:32 and 33: For he [God] is not a man, as I am, that I should answer him, and we should come together in judgment. Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, that… Continue Reading

Elohim—The Creator

Elohim—The Creator

     God makes Himself known to us by way of His written Word. He desires that we understand and know Him intimately and specifically, so He has given Himself descriptive names in the Scriptures.

Climbing High to See God’s Elevated Perspective

Climbing High to See God’s Elevated Perspective

     Have you ever climbed up to a higher elevation so that you could gain a broader perspective? I vividly recall a cool, crisp morning several years ago during our second year of in-residence Way Corps training.

Salutations in God’s Word

Salutations in God’s Word

     We understand God’s Word much better when we know something of the manners and customs used in Bible times. What the Bible calls a “salute” has been a puzzle to some believers.

This aircraft carrier is not a small ship by any means—its deck is about four and one-half acres in size. Aboard this ship, I was quite amazed to learn that a small wheel about the… Continue Reading

Do horoscopes have a basis in God’s Word?

Do horoscopes have a basis in God’s Word?

     Since horoscopes have to do with the stars, which the Bible says were created by God, do horoscopes then have a basis in God’s Word? This is an interesting question and worth looking into. But if we were to go to a concordance of the King James Version of the Bible and look up the… Continue Reading

Getting Busy on God’s Plan

Getting Busy on God’s Plan

     When our children were born, I held each of them in my arms and pictured them growing up straight and strong. I pictured them being successful in school, in athletics, in their professions, in marriage and family, and in every other area of life. I’m sure most parents are like that. Our thoughts are only… Continue Reading

Metalworkers in the Bible
