A New Beginning (Reposted from 2012)

Posted 01-04-2018 at 09:32 AM by snowduck

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV) - Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! - A new year is often viewed as a new beginning, and we can think of ourselves as having a new beginning if we have come to Christ. The Apostle Paul wrote 2 Corinthians about 55 a.d. probably when he was in Macedonia, and in 5:17 notice that Paul says "has come," "has gone" and "is here," he never uses the words "might come," might be...

Merry Christmas (Reposted from 2013)

Posted 12-07-2017 at 09:10 AM by snowduck

Matthew 1:21 (NIV) - She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” - The prophecy foretold in the old testament was soon to be fulfilled. The event that the Jews had waited so long for was finally coming. The Savior who could take away their sin and make them justified before God would be born. In his usual style God didn't do things like we probably would have. He allowed Christ to be born in a simple animal manger, not...

DANIEL 7:13-14 "In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence.14 He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men of every language worshiped him.

Doing The Impossible

Posted 10-12-2017 at 09:36 AM by snowduck

Mark 10:27 - Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God. - After preaching to some people Jesus's disciples questioned something he said and this scripture was his answer to them. None of us can do the impossible. It might seem we have or know someone who can but then it isn't really impossible just difficult. The ability to do things that are really impossible can only be done by God, be it the parting of the Red Sea in...

Really-Snakes?

Posted 09-08-2017 at 09:07 AM by snowduck

Matthew 10:16 - “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.- When someone is studying Christianity, or is forming an opinion of it, they might be turned off by this scripture. The innocent as doves part Christ talks about here is understandable, but some might find it a little weird when he says to be as shrewd as snakes, after all the Bible doesn't say many good things about snakes. But upon more careful reading, it becomes clearer....
