A Commandment Taught By Men

A Commandment Taught By Men

Isaiah 29:13

And the Lord said, because these people draw near with their mouth

And honor me with their lips

While their hearts are far from me

And their fear of me is a commandment taught by men


When I read these lines I wrote down the book, chapter and verse.  At the time I wasn’t quite sure why I wanted to remember this verse I just knew I did.

The more I read it I came to the conclusion that I wanted to remember this one because it prophesizes my disillusion with the organizations that call themselves a church.

This verse is Isaiah telling the people of God’s disdain, for they are just going through the motions.  They have God on their lips but not in their hearts. Continue reading

Power and Corruption

Power and Corruption

I read this verse from the Bible and even though it was written thousands of years ago one place from today immediately came to mind.

Read it and see if you think the same as I do.

Isaiah Chapter 1 Verses 21 through 23: Continue reading

The Fools Will No More Be Called Noble

The Fools Will No More Be Called Noble

Isaiah 32:5

“The fool will no more be called noble, nor the scoundrels said to be honorable.”

When I read that verse I had to write it down.  I guess I wrote it down because it gives me some hope.

I thought here is another example of the prophecies of the Bible that apply today and probably throughout the existence of mankind.  I thought about how hopeful I am that this is prophetic about Washington DC, for Washington has become nothing but a town of fools and scoundrels.

Fools in the sense of how foolish these people are in their own self importance.  They are not stupid people just foolish people.

And scoundrels, I think you would be hard press to find one that isn’t a scoundrel. Continue reading

The Great Equalizer

The Great Equalizer

Luke 3:4-6

As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet,

“The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord,
    make his paths straight.
Every valley shall be filled,
    and every mountain and hill shall be made low,
and the crooked shall become straight,
    and the rough places shall become level ways,
and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.’”


I read these verses the other day and thought this simple thought:  The great equalizer, God/Christ. Continue reading

They Will Exalt Themselves

They Will Exalt Themselves

I am writing this post in the midst of a presidential election year.

It is an election year that has been and promises to be a real circus. But then again aren’t they all.

As with every presidential election cycle or really any election cycle there is a plethora of promises to change everything and make it all better.  And just as in all previous election cycles there are plenty of potential voters out there ready to lap up the lies and I’m talking lies all around, for and from everyone.
