lots_wife_pillar_of_salt

God destroyed the city of Sodom where Lot and his family lived. The angel said to him, “Don’t look back.”  “But Lots wife looked back from behind him and she became a pillar of salt.”(v.26)  This is the word I received from the Lord: Do not go back to the old ways of living, thinking its better. Do not think like the Israelites, who desired to go back to Egypt, saying “It was better to be slaves, then to deal with the minor afflictions they faced in the wilderness, especially pertaining to food and their hunger for old things, instead of dining on God’s spiritual manna from heaven which heals (Exodus 16:1-3). Lots wife looked back, which caused her destruction, her demise, her death! Continue reading

Rape, Revenge, and Repentance (Genesis 34)

Dinah was a free spirited, beautiful young woman. She was the only girl of ten brothers.  She ventured out alone with no permission, unattended out into the big city to visit with the daughters of the land. (v34:1). This was a new and exciting place for her, the land of Shechem, where her parents, Jacob and Leah, and the rest of the family bought land to live on (Gen. 33:19).  Perhaps being naive and innocent, she was unaware of what would await her in Shechem.  Rape, sexual defilement, embarrassment, and shame was thrust upon her, taking away all innocence of her being, as Shechem, the prince of the country intruded and invaded her soul. (v.2)

But this was more than just sex.  Continue reading

The atmosphere was so heavy and there was a soft cloud like substance that had streaks of rainbow colors glistening through them. I would hear him speak to me, in my mind, but no words were being spoken, but I could perceive what he was saying.  I looked at this wall and on it were multitudes of gold and silvery like knobs shining. It seemed to be billions of them, Continue reading

Who Are We To Judge? (Luke 7:36-50)

Who is this woman appearing suddenly out of nowhere?  What gives her the right to barge in on us?  Doesn’t she know that we are in an important meeting with the Rabbi?  No wonder why they call her a ghastly sinful beast!  She should be a shame of herself, so undignified.  I’m nauseated.  If this Man were a prophet, He would surely know who and what sort of woman this is who is touching Him.  For she is a notorious sinner!  (Luke 7:39 paraphrase) Continue reading
