Biblical Light

Articles using Scripture to show Light in God’s Word.

The Power of Prayer

The Power of Prayer should not be underestimated, it is one of the most powerful things you can do.  Prayer is how you turn to God. It is the ask in “Ask and it shall be given”, and it is the knock in “Knock and it shall be opened” (Mat 7:7, Luke 11:9).  Prayer literally means to ask and it is the first step to receiving salvation and protection from God.

Returning to God is the overall purpose of Scripture, but first you must ask.  Unfortunately, no one seems to know how to pray or what to ask for because it doesn’t seem to be doing any good.  You may be thinking, I prayed for this or that and it never happened. 

Christmas – The Christ Mass

The Christmas Season has once again, come upon the earth.  This is the annual period of festivities centered around the winter solstice and the birth of the Sun… or Son as it is now taught. If the purpose of this ‘holy’ day is to celebrate the supposed day of Jesus’ birth why isn’t this day simply called Christ’s Birthday.  Why is it instead called Christmas?  Learn where this term comes from and why it matters.

The World of ‘Financial Inclusion’

Many are hard at work to promote the idea of “financial inclusion”. Not wanting anyone to be left out, they require everyone to be included. It has become increasingly apparent that these pandemic profiteers or ‘stakeholders’ do not have the people’s best interests at heart. Their personal wealth multiplies in the billions of dollars daily, while the people are being put into financial jeopardy. Digitally, the financial, high-tech, biopharmaceutical and military-intelligence sectors are all interconnected. If you are not ‘included’ in this system, you simply will not be able to participate in society. A highly pressurized campaign to cause all to receive a digital ID, each with his own Personal Identification Number (PIN), is underway. Your PIN is the number of your name. This is Biblical Prophecy fulfilled.

2021 – The Year of the Cathars

Seven hundred years ago, in the year 1321, a man identified as the last of the Cathars, was interrogated in the Inquisition and burnt at the stake after he proclaimed a prophecy. That prophecy pertained to the year 2021 when he said, “We shall return in 700 years…” Is it being fulfilled? Take a look…

The Albigensian Crusade (1209–29) was called for by Pope Innocent III against the Cathars, a community in the south of France, whom the Roman Catholic Church had branded heretical. The war pitted the nobility of staunchly Catholic northern France against that of the south.

For all of its violence and destruction, the Albigensian Crusade failed to remove the Cathar heresy from Languedoc. It did, however, provide a solid framework of new secular governors willing to work with the church against the heretics. They were promised indulgences and whatever property or belongings they could confiscate. Through the subsequent efforts of the Inquisition, established by the papacy to try heretics, Catharism was virtually eliminated in Languedoc within a century. Many false accusations were made against them. ‘Cathar’ means purified, same as the ‘Puritans.’ They were also known as the Albigensians for the area of Albi where they lived.

A Bible Story – Abraham to Moses

Many people are confused about who Israel really is or was. Let’s make the crooked straight! Here is the true Bible Story from Abraham to Moses, grandson of Levi.

Many years ago, the name ‘Israel’ was given to Abraham’s grandson, Jacob. His father was Isaac. Abraham and Isaac loved God and kept His Commandments. Jacob, who had the birthright, was saved by God from his brother, Esau, who wanted to kill him. He loved God and learned of Him and this is why the LORD is called the ‘God of Israel’; ‘The Mighty One of Israel’. Because these three men, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, loved God above all, promises were made to them and a Covenant was made with them.

Circumcision: A Cut to the Heart

Circumcision, like Baptism, has become a tradition, custom or requirement that differentiates greatly between the religions of the world. ‘Jews’ are well known adherents to a physical circumcision as a way to continue the Covenant of Circumcision between Abraham and God. Muslims consider circumcision an act of ‘purification’ and Christians are split on whether a physical circumcision is required. Catholics are against it and Orthodox Christians are for it. Many protestant Christians, like Catholics, see a water Baptism as the replacement or extension of Circumcision, but this approach varies between denominations.

Consider, as well, the discrepancies between government guidance on the issue. In the US, the government has framed circumcision as a health issue. World War II recruits were routinely circumcised. It is still a commonplace procedure for infants prior to leaving the hospital. Many parents support the practice in adherence to government health guidance. In 1965 over 85% of the US population circumcised male infants. That number has been dropping ever since. Meanwhile, several European countries have tried to outright ban the practice. With such a dizzying array of understanding and motivation for circumcision, has anyone actually cut to the heart of what God calls for?

Beware of False Prophets and their Hypocrisy

Jesus warned of false prophets and false teachers who would come at the end. He also said to beware of their leaven which is hypocrisy. But no one seems to be listening. I see the majority being deceived, a fulfillment of prophecy, following after lies and deception. They follow deceit (chaff) and forsake the Truth (wheat). They walk in darkness because they listen to and obey false prophets. The wheat is much preferred!

“I am the light of the world. He that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no one comes to the Father, but by way of me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also…”

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit.”

Jesus Christ – John 8:12; John 14:6-7; Matthew 7:13-17

Choose This Day Whom You Will Serve!

The pastors of the people in America are paralyzed and confused by having to choose what to do. It is a case of the blind leading the blind; they are all groping in darkness. A recent article, ‘Many Bible Belt preachers silent on shots as COVID-19 surges’ on AP, states:

Those involved with the COVID-19 vaccination effort are having a problem getting pastors to publicly advocate for the shots because some have referred to them as “the mark of the beast,” a biblical reference in the Book of Revelation. They say it represents a reference to “allegiance to the devil.”

“Some pastors are hosting vaccination clinics and praying for more inoculations, while others are issuing fiery anti-vaccine sermons from their pulpits. Most are staying mum on the issue…”

Evangelical pastors in the Dark on COVID-19

While the Protestant Evangelicals remain silent, a major stockholder in the pharmaceutical companies has “demanded that all relevant stakeholders/stockholders exhaust all efforts to confront vaccine hesitancy…” They manifest themselves by their all-out efforts. And show themselves to be a House divided against itself.

Will God hear your Prayers?

Facebook has recently announced it wants to use its platform to hear the prayers of its members. Isn’t this just another marketing tool for them to make even more money on the data they collect? They say it will be a “tremendous tool to spread the Gospel of Christ.” Do they even know what that is or care? An “I prayed” button will be available for their faithful to chalk up numbers and algorithms. Prayer requests are already rolling in. One asks to pray for a job interview to go well.

Will Facebook hear this prayer? Apparently and they share it with all their readers to hear also. But is this the kind of prayer God will hear? NO! Not at all.

The word ‘pray’ or ‘prayer’ means ‘to offer devout petition, praise, thanks, etc. to God or an object of worship…’ An ‘object’ of worship is nothing more than a lifeless idol or image with eyes that cannot see and ears that cannot hear made by the hands of man. But what about God?

Feed My Sheep

Before Jesus left, he commanded and sent his apostles to go out and “Feed my sheep”. He had twelve apostles because there were twelve tribes of the House of Israel and he gave them the authority to go and teach.

“Three times Jesus asked Peter, ‘Do you love me?’ He said to him, ‘Lord, You know all things; you know that I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Feed my Lambs… Feed my Sheep.’”

Jesus – John 21:17

“These twelve Jesus sent forth and commanded them, saying, ‘Do not go in the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter into any city of the Samaritans. But go rather to the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel. And as you go, preach/teach, saying, ‘The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.’”

Jesus – Matthew 10:5-7

Did Jesus expect his sheep to be fed of canned food drives or ‘Spiritual Food’? Crackers and grape juice or the Word of God? Many churches want to serve their flocks with community oriented activities such as musical events, fund raisers, youth meetings, day care, gyms and sports, etc. But they have not healed the sick; bound up the brokenhearted; searched for those who are lost; fed the flock; nor let them know what time it is. Consequently, they are hungry and desolate of the knowledge of the Most High God. They have forgotten Him and their restingplace.
