What surprises you in life? A thunderclap – A bolt of lightning?  A home run in the bottom of the ninth inning? I remember the day I held my first born in my arms way back in 1983. I was overwhelmed with joy and awe!

Beaten, betrayed, and tortured to death. Why would Jesus (the incarnate Word who created the Heavens and Earth) endure these things? When questioned by Pilate, Jesus remained silent. He did not defend himself in word or in action. Instead, “for the joy set before him, he endured the cross” (Hebrews 12:2 ) because “God proves his own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8 ). It was our sin that made the cross necessary, but love and joy were the motivations of Jesus that sustained him on the cross.

This week marked an historic moment in our history. The first time in 99 years we have seen an eclipse pass from the west to east coast. It came quickly and went quickly. Perhaps you viewed it through special lenses or maybe just saw images on TV. The darkness came quickly and then it passed and the light returned in full force.

As the disciples are walking out of the Temple with Jesus they turn to him, mesmerized by the magnificent artwork and the impending size of it all, and they say, “Jesus, isn’t the Temple so impressive. It’s huge!” Jesus responds by saying, “Take a look now, because it’ll all become rubble.” He continues by giving a glimpse into things to come: the destruction of the Temple, persecution of Jesus’ followers, the ongoing proclamation of the gospel, and the final judgment.

Who is Haggai? What is his prophecy all about?

Prophecy is often a challenge to the people of God in the form of warnings and blessings. Most prophetic scripture focuses on what God is doing and what He intends to do in the future. When the Almighty speaks through the Biblical prophets, adherence to the message brought fulfillment of the promises of blessing and rejection brought judgment.Haggai is considered one of the TWELVE minor prophets, not because his prophecy is unimportant but because it is relatively short and has a more local focus. Haggai prophesied about the people needing to complete building the Temple back in Jerusalem.


By Whose Authority?

8/13/17 By Whose Authority? - Mark 11:27-12:34

As Jesus continued to invite his followers to life and peace with God, the religious elite continued to challenge Him and His authority. They wanted to know the ‘Who’ and the ‘What’ (11:28) of His bold statements. Jesus, in typical fashion knew the motives of their hearts and intent of their questions to try to ‘trap’ him in a dialogue. (12:13-15)
