    Reaching inward.. the struggle with sin.


    Romans 7 (New Living Translation)

    15 I donít really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I donít do it. Instead, I do what I hate. 16 But if I know that what I am doing is wrong, this shows that I agree that the law is good. 17 So I am not the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it.

    18 And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. I want to do what

  2. The home of YHWH . . .




    It seems to be useful to identify an assumption about the temple vision of Ezekiel 40-48.

    Indeed, there seems to be an assumption by many that Ezekiel says that a new temple will be rebuilt.

    The assumption goes something like this: since those 8 chapters of Ezekiel 40-48 are there (and a temple is mentioned in those chapters) then that temple has to be built.

  5. Judgment . . . war . . . and the defeat of Satan . . .



    Recently, I have thinking about judgment, war, and the defeat of Satan.

    Indeed, several scriptures in the book of Revelation indicate that Satan has been cast out of heaven to the earth and so on.
