Mixing of threads, cattle and seed
We have previously written an article about the scriptural prohibitions on the mixing of materials for clothing, seed and animals. From time to time we review our articles to make sure our convictions and understanding are honestly represented. We understand the need to remain teachable and we grow in understanding as we study YHVH’s Word. […]
Yom Kippurim and the sins of our fathers
When we consider the world, we may be led to mistakenly believe that we can sin with impunity. However, sin without consequence does not exist. It may appear that ungodly people prosper more than the godly. They seem to be blessed in all areas of their lives, but if you look deeper, you will often find emptiness, heartache and depression. Sadly, this doesn’t seem to be unique to unbelievers, we find the same pain amongst believers. This pain in both groups is eased with obsessions or addictions: work, ministry, prescription drugs, alcohol, co-dependent relationships, sex or thrills. We said that sin without punishment does not exist, but we don’t always see this punishment. How are we to understand this?
The Way of the Nations
There are two ways we can follow in life: the way of YHVH or the way of the nations. YHVH has given us free will so we choose which way we follow. However, even if we think we follow YHVH’s way, we might, unknowingly, be following the way of the nations. The way of the nations may inadvertently have infiltrated our lives in some form. In order to determine what this means and if my statement is true or not, we need to define “the way of the nations.” It can be defined as anything contrary to YHVH’s word or ways.
Secrets, Rebellion, Bitterness and Poison
This week we are going to look at secret sins and rebellion and the consequences thereof. You may be surprised at what we find here. Rebellion is one of those sins, we think other people commit and the same goes for secret sins. We look down on people who do this and disregard any teaching on the subject because we believe it doesn’t concern us. Please read this, as I said, you may be surprised by these findings.
A Visit to Tell Dan
On a recent trip to Isreal, we visited the site of Tell Dan. While visiting the site we learned about all the history of this place. Most of us know Dan only for the fact that one of Jeroboam’s calves were placed at Dan. Come explore with us the complete story behind this city and discover why it is one of Israel’s most fascinating sites. It is really worth the visit.
In our previous article, we wrote about the spiritual impact of Babel and the one before about how the spiritual realm influences us. This week, we will dig a bit deeper into the topic of the spiritual realm with our focus on defiled land. Our foundation will be what is written about this in Scripture. You will be amazed to learn how land can be defiled and its impact on us. We will also look at ways to cleanse defiled land and how to cleanse and dedicate our homes.
