9 The Day of the LORD

The Day of the LORD, or The Day of Yahweh, was a time when ancient Israelites expected God to break into human history, pay back the enemies of his covenant people with judgment, and perhaps make them rulers over the earth.  Sadly, disobedient Israel didn't see her sins as a hindrance to God's blessing.  They learned the hard way that the Day of Yahweh only rewards the righteous but judges the wicked.  And it will do so again.

81 John the Baptist Doubts the King

You may believe in King Jesus, or rather, you may believe in your understanding of Christ.  What if he is different than what you thought?  Are you loyal to him or only to your distorted view of him?  Do you love the truth, wherever that may lead?

7 Seek Yahweh and Live!

The northern kingdom of Israel was doomed; Assyria was going to destroy her.  However, God still gave individual Israelites time to repent.  The world is doomed; King Jesus at the Day of Judgment will destroy her.  However, God is still giving individual people time to repent.  Please do.
