    Abraham:  Called to Wait

      Last time, in Episode #3 of Biopic #1, we learned about Abram’s latest encounter with God.  It came on the heels of his victory over the four Kings from Mesopotamia, his meeting with Melchizedek, and the temptation presented to him by the King of Sodom.  During this encounter, God expanded upon His revelation to Abram, revealing to him for the first time that he would father a son of his own.  Emphasis was placed on the fact that, at this promise of a Son, Abram believed God and his faith was credited to him as righteousness. At the time, God also reaffirmed His promise that Abram’s descendants would inherit the…

    Smoke and Mirrors

      When the Coronavirus first broke out, I kept hearing in my spirit the phrase, “Smoke and Mirrors.”   But not being given anything else to go on, all I could do was wait for further instructions.  Then, when George Floyd died and all of the riots broke out, I heard “Smoke and Mirrors” once more—again, without being given any additional information or instruction. Afterward, while observing the fallout from these events, I was amazed by the clear dividing line that was being drawn—not among the unbelievers but among those whom I considered to be committed and mature followers of Christ.  I was simultaneously stunned and grieved to see so many of…

    Abraham:  Called to Wed

      When we left Abraham at the end of Episode #2, he had just returned from the daring and successful rescue of his nephew, Lot, along with the other inhabitants of Sodom and the surrounding cities.  But before he could return the captives and the loot taken in the raid, he was met by Melchizedek—the Priest and King of Salem—with whom he shared communion and to whom he gave tithes from the spoils of that war.  As a result of this worshipful encounter, when he was offered the recovered loot by the King of Sodom, Abram was fully prepared to turn it down, choosing instead to maintain his integrity and witness…

    Abraham:  Called to Warfare

      For those of you who are joining us for the first time, we are currently engaged in a study of the Bible, being presented here in the form of a two-act play which we’ve entitled, God’s One Big Story.  In Act 1, Scene 1, we covered Genesis 1-11—the Overture to our story—and now, in Act 1, Scene 2, we are studying the lives of the Four Patriarchs found in Genesis 12-50.  They are Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph, the four men most responsible for the birth and development of Israel—the nation who would one day become the Wife of Jehovah and the one through whom Jesus Christ would later come…

    Still here, after all these years…

      Today marks the seventh birthday for His Truth, My Voice.  When I started this blog, I knew nothing about blogging–I just knew that I wanted to share what I had learned about the Bible with others.  There have certainly been a lot of ups and downs but then that’s the way life is, isn’t it?  As my mother used to say, if it’s not one thing, it’s another! For the past year and a half, I have been taking care of our grandson (now twenty months old) while his parents worked so I haven’t been as productive as in previous years.  But I do hope that I can get…
