Eagles and Providence

The last day Moses lived on this earth he called all of Israel together to teach them the Song of Moses. The imagery in this poetic language stirs the heart of the righteous and gives so much hope to the saints.             The song describes what God did for the Jews as He brought them out of Egypt. “He found him in…

Doing It Again

There are those events in our lives which need to be repeated. There was great reward when we did them the first time. To do them again can often bring even greater rewards. Consider the following verses which contain the word “again” to see just how true this is. When we became a Christian, our lives were changed as the old man…

To Find Truth—Listen to Jesus, not Theologians

After a Covenant Is Confirmed

The Gentile churches in Galatia were being troubled by Judaizing teachers who sought to bind the keeping of the Old Testament law (specifically circumcision) on them.

These teachers made the keeping of the law absolutely essential to…
