Will God reject forever: An exposition of Psalm 77


Suffering can lead to some of the most surprising and difficult questions, often leading to the doubt of God’s goodness. The psalmist and musician, Asaph struggled with some of the great questions of God’s goodness while suffering and wrote them down in what is now the 77th Psalm.

Asaph started by recording his suffering (either a past or present event): every time he thinks of God he is in despair, his soul is exhausted and his arms are outstretched without rest, he is speechless and does not obtain any rest.


In Asaph’s great questions of doubt, he recalled God’s good works of the past. While God’s actions may have been different for Asaph in that time, Asaph had assurance of God’s goodness based on recollection of past events. While anyon…

Does God treat good and bad the same?


Why does it seem that God treats good and bad people the same? Abraham asked this same question. In 1897 BC, God visited Abraham and Sarah manifested as three men. He came with some good news, Sarah would give birth to a Isaac well beyond her child bearing years. With the promise of many descendants, Abraham had the burden of imparting righteousness on his children, so that it would carry on for future generations. Standing by the trees in Mamre, the three men contemplated whether or not they should reveal God’s plan to Abraham. Wanting to teach Abraham God’s righteousness they revealed God’s plan- to visit the metropolis of Sodom and destroy it if it proved to be wicked.. Abraham knew God’s nature, without it being shown to him; yet he doubt…

Where are God's deeds when you need them?

When bad things happen, where is God and the good things he brings? This a common question that many people have today when going through times of suffering. Over 3,200 years ago (around 1191 BC), Gideon asked this very question. Yes, Gideon the mighty warrior of God struggled with the same question, “if the is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all his wonderful deeds that our fathers recounted to us, saying ‘Did not the bring us up from Egypt?’ But now the has forsaken us and given us into the hand of Midian” (Judges 6:13 ESV), we doubt God’s ability to bring goodness out of bad circumstances. God punishes evil, but he always is willing to restore your relationship with him.

Why Does God Allow Injustice?

Why doesn’t God punish evil? This is one of the greatest questions people have today, but this isn’t a new question. This has been one asked for thousands of years, since near the beginning of time. While this is a prevalent modern question, we can find an ancient answer to our question- in the places where people asked this question of God.

In about 600 BC, a prophet of God named Habakkuk asked this very question (Job asked a similar question to his friend 1,000 years earlier.

This is Part 1 of “Ancient Answers to Modern Questions” blog series- through the people who questioned God in the Bible, we can find answers to some of our greatest questions. Check out Part 2.

You are not a Child of God Unless...

You are not a child of God unless….

you know Jesus Christ as Savior. It does not matter how religious you are, if you believe in God, Heaven or even Satan and Hell . Even though you were created by God, that does not automatically make you his child. The phrase “child of God” or “son of God” (in this sense, “son”  means child) originates from Scripture , yet Scripture does not create an environment where anyone can claim to be God’s child. This does not ruin the fact that every human is created and is loved by God . If you say you are a child of God, back it up- what part of the Bible applies to you so that you can claim that title?

Foundations or Rubble?


There is a lot of excitement among Christians and Jews on a recent archaeological find . Several months ago, a dig in Jerusalem came upon the seal of Hezekiah, king of Judah . It was as clear as the text of 2 Kings and Isaiah. Then, when all the excitement of the undeniable confirmation of the historicity of this king was accepted by the world at large, a seal found ten feet away is revealed to be that of an "Isaiah, NBI[..]".

The reason that they took their time on revealing this was the seal of this Isaiah was because a letter was missing , leaving an uncertainty as to whether the title was NBIA ("prophet ") was indicated. Could there be another Isaiah in the court of Hezechiah? Could a person from the town of Nob (a "Nobi", or Nobite) hav…

What is the meaning of Romans 6:23?

This is the first and experimental blogpost I am doing on my observations about Scripture. More and more I have a desire not to just to document facts about the Bible, but talk about my personal thoughts about Scripture and how the Word of God can impact our life. Not only is this type of use of Scripture critical, misses the entire point of this Scripture!

Let’s not forget the preceding passage before Rom 6:17-22. Romans 6:23 is the conclusion for the rest of the passage which says that Christians are slaves to God. Formerly, all believers were enslaved to Sin. As slaves to Sin, believers bore the fruit of (think of a plant at harvest) death. As slaves to righteousness and God, the fruit that is given is holiness. Connect that with the end …

He Came To...

Jesus Christ was God , the Creator of the World who spoke everything into existence== During his ministry Jesus preached to the crowds about servanthood. He taught that whoever wanted to be the first or greatest, had to be last or the least. Shortly after he gave the people this teaching, James and John came with their mother and asked if they could have the right hand seats to Jesus’ throne in Heaven. Jesus rebuked James and John for their request.

He then went on to tell his Apostles not to be like the government officials of Galilee, who exerted their authority on their subjects. Instead, if the Apostles wanted greatness they had to become like their very own servants or slaves. Jesus compares this to himself, the highest authority of a…

"Religious Studies"

At the University of Wyoming, Paul V.M. Flesher, a well-meaning professor, seeks students for his course with this:

"Why is it important to study the ancient Israelites, a people whose history was recorded in books more than 2,000 years ago? The answer is as simple as it is powerful: They created monotheism, the worship of one god." --Paul V.M. Flesher, University of Wyoming website

Though I'm sure he has the utmost respect for believers, this is not the way to approach the study of the Bible. In no uncertain terms, the Israelites DID NOT "create" the religion that they practiced . The Bible is clear that the concept of monotheism was revealed by Yahweh, the Creator, to a pagan polytheist named Abram after the truth had been largely lost in the…

Canaanite DNA Found




Another “archaeological” discovery has been found within recent days; a find that is consistent, if not confirming Biblical record. A recent DNA test has confirmed and traced the existence of Canaanite genes in the city of Sidon and across modern Lebanon.The findings have been published in an American scientific journal with a focus on genes.

The accounts of the Bible state that Israel was suppose to completely destroy the peoples of the cities of Canaan when God handed them over in victory
