Peace or Troublemakers

September 23rd, 2019

In episode 58, I explore what it means to be a peacemaker, and demonstrate how being a biblical peacemaker will often get one labeled as a troublemaker. I also look at how this Beatitude is in sharp contrast to what happened in Genesis 6, and how Jesus is the ultimate example of a biblical peacemaker.

Matthew 24 & the Maccabees

April 9th, 2019

In Episode 46, we’re going to be looking at how Matthew 24 corresponds to the books of 1 & 2 Maccabees. In Matthew 24, Jesus opens the disciples’ eyes to what things will look like in the last days. However, did you know that many phrases He uses in Matthew 24 can be directly tied to 1 & 2 Maccabees? Therefore, is it possible that what happened in those days is a shadow of what is coming upon the earth?

Seeing Things for the First Time

January 29th, 2019

Today we’re jumping into chapter 9 of my book ‘New Wineskins and the Simple Words of Christ’. When we become born again into Jesus’s kingdom, it can feel like He is turning our worldview upside down. However, it’s crucial to remember we all enter life with an inverted perspective of reality. Jesus is actually helping to set everything right side up again. Here in Chapter 9, we look at how adopting Jesus’ worldview helps us to live with better spiritual eyesight and be more effective in fighting the spiritual battles we all face.
