“Spiritual Forces In The Heavenly Places” and Current Events

Not long ago, Rod Dreher, author of The Benedict Option, and “Live not by lies,” wrote on his American Conservative blog, that there seems to be “something demonic in the air.” He was referring to QAnon, which seems to have burst onto the scene to rival the “Wokeness” that he usually writes and worries about…

“Arks” and the Weird Parts of Scripture

This is the fifth and final post in a series. It is also the third post that deals either directly or indirectly with the flood of Noah. You might even think you know a lot about Noah. This post is going to tell you that you don’t know jack-squat about Noah. Here is the strange…

“The Titans” and the Weird Parts of Scripture

This post is the fourth in a series. It is about “Myths” and the weird parts of scripture. This one is still talking about Noah and the Flood Myths, but it is going to deal with something that you probably didn’t know was a part of the story of Noah. At the end of the last post, I said that we’d talk about “Giants,” and we will, but I’ve discovered that this issue is SO BIG, that we need to break it down into two parts. Therefore, this issues is about the “Sons of God” in Genesis.

This issue is about the “sons of God” in Genesis.

“Flood Myths” and the Weird Parts of Scripture

Noah’s Flood just might be the craziest thing we read about in the Old Testament. As I intend to show in this post and the next, it’s not as crazy as you think. Instead, it’s far, FAR crazier than you think. It’s crazy because truth is stranger than fiction, and lots of “fiction” you’ve heard just might be the truth.

The Adoration of the Magi and the Waters Above the Firmament

This fifth and final post on the “Waters above the Firmament” shows how these “Waters” are actually related to the Magi in Matthew 2, and Isaiah 43, which prophesies about the Magi. I am CONFIDENT that you have never heard this before, and boy are you in for a treat when you read it.

Crossing the Jordan and the Waters Above the Firmament

This post is the third in a series about the Waters Above the Firmament. This post describes how this cosmic geography of these “waters” (mayim) and “the deep” (tehom) is shown again, specifically as it relates to the crossing of the Jordan.

Parting the Red Sea and the Waters Above the Firmament

This post is the third in a series about the Waters Above the Firmament, first mentioned on the second day of creation, which SEEM to exit the entire narrative of the Bible (but which in reality do not). This post is about the next time the word “the deep” (tehom) is used in scripture. The place is in the Exodus out of Egypt.

New Life and the Waters Above the Firmament

The purpose of this post is to show how rich the Bible’s metaphorical or symbolic ( or literal?) use of the words “the deep” (tehom) and “the heavens” (shamayim) actually are. By understanding this conceptual framework, you can understand some very deep and complex things that the Bible communicates.

The Flood of Noah and the Waters Above the Firmament

The second day of creation is… …strange, even for those who believe that God created the world out of nothing. That’s what this post is about. We’re going to explore the “Waters above the Firmament.”

Why Was Joseph Afraid of Archelaus?

In the last post, I explained where the Massacre of the Innocents is actually recorded in well-accepted history. It wasn’t obvious, but it is definitely there.

This post answers a second question that most people do not even know is an issue. Why was Joseph afraid to live in Bethlehem under Archelaus? There is an answer, but it is WAY crazier than you probably thought.

The Massacre of the Innocents in Recorded History

The Massacre of the Innocents is the traditional name of the order king Herod gives to kill those two years old and under in Bethlehem. The general belief is that the story is completely made up. I’m here to tell you it is not made up. In fact, it is recorded in history. I’ll show it to you in this post.
