The Greatest Conqueror

Continuing my advent look at what we mean when we call Jesus king, because we sing all of our Christmas Carols about this newborn king.  The newborn whom we would ultimately call King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.  But, the question is, what do we mean when we call Jesus king? Beginning with 2 […]

A Coronation

  The only war on Christmas was when Herod tried to kill Jesus, and that failed, so we can just relax.  We don’t have to worry about a war on Christmas. Jesus survives the War on Christmas, he’s taken to Egypt by Mary and Joseph, comes back to Nazareth and is raised, and when he […]

A War on Christmas

The left says, “Social justice, Jesus on our side!!”   The right says “Personal morality, Jesus on our side!”   But they’re both wrong, because Jesus has his own politics called the Kingdom of God outlined in the Sermon on the Mount!!   We never dreamed that Jesus was that serious about things.  But things […]

Jesus on Our Side…

There is a movement afoot today, trying to return us to the faith once delivered by the apostles.  Let’s see if I can help with that during this advent season, and yes, bring glory to this newborn king.   “The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.” ‭‭Mark‬ ‭1:1‬ ‭ESV‬‬ The […]

Glory to the Newborn King

I’m a few days late.  It’s advent season, the season where we await the coming of our King.   In other words, it’s Christmas season, that most wonderful time of year, Amen!   As such, I am going to break from looking at the seven signs in John.  We only have one left, but I […]

Outside of Karma

With the death of Jesus upon the cross, it appears as though blame has won.  Satanic blame appears triumphant.  But – on the third day, the Son rose again!  And you and I are to live in the light.  Not in the darkness of assigning blame.  We are to live in the light of extending […]

Living in the Light

Still looking at this sixth sign of Jesus as given by John.  I’ll have one more message on this, then will hit “pause” on looking at the seventh sign in a John to take a look at what it is that we mean when we call Jesus “king”.  Because after all, it is the time […]

Work of the Devil

Continuing, finally, with this look at Jesus’s healing of a man born blind.   So Jesus departs from the temple with his disciples.  It’s fruitless, all they want to do is throw stones at him.  He leaves, and as he’s walking through the gate, leaving the temple complex, there sits a man, blind from birth. […]

The Day of Stoning

Starting with the events of John 8 so we can better understand the events of John 9, because they all go together.    Jesus is in Jerusalem for the Feast of Tabernacles.  He’s teaching daily in the temple.   Early one morning he arrives at the temple to continue his work of teaching the kingdom […]

Jesus and Karma

We’ll get straight into the scripture for the next miracle of Jesus. “As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth. And his disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that […]
