My Thoughts on the Fact That This Easter Sunday Will Fall on April 1, 2018

I was looking at the calendar and I soon found out that Easter Sunday will fall on April 1, 2018 of all the days of the year! It's not the first time it happened as it historically happened in 1923, 1934, 1945 and 1956 and it won't happen again in 2023 assuming the Lord hasn't returned. But I feel this may be a sign of the times and this would be another blow to the face of atheism.
This is the real mind-blowing thing about atheism. I have read various speculations without substance of Jesus' resurrection. I even remembered how an atheist blogger even wrote that Jesus probably just rolled away the stone in the grave and then He finally died. Others even said He just swooned on the cross. Others have the robbery theory. But all these theories don't make sense for many reasons.
Simple science and history would show how atheism falls flat and the Bible is true. The Romans were pretty much experts. Both blood and water flowed out when the Centurion pierced Jesus' s…

My Reflection on Abraham's Tested Faith

The New Testament commends Abraham for his act of faith in these verses:
Hebrews 11:17-19 - By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.
James 2:21-23 - Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the Scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
This story can be found in Genesis 22. When the King James uses "tempt" it means God tested Abraham. This was going to be a big challenge for the old man. God gave Abraham the promised son Isaac at his old age of 100. At this point. Isaac was most li…

Am I Suffering from Abraham's and Sarah's Impatience?

Life can be so frustrating especially when God's blessings are delayed. While it's easy to memorize that God has a purpose for His delays but the application is very difficult. Such is the case of Sarah, she got so impatient that she did the absurd. In Genesis 16, we read how Sarah did something so immoral as to get a young Egyptian slave girl to serve as a surrogate mother for Abraham and Sarah. Just because it was legal didn't make immoral act as moral.

It could be time to consider that this was a violation of God's intended rule for marriage in the Garden of Eden in Genesis 2:24. It was one man and one woman. But Abraham did it anyway which was because they didn't rely on God's promises. Sarah was soon mocked as a result. Sarah didn't think of the consequences of getting a younger woman to bear them a son. If you know biology as long as a man's reproductive system remains intact then he can have babies even at the age of 85.
This has me thinking of S…

My Reflection on the Destruction of Sodom

As I was reading the Bible today, I want to focus on yet another important issue as I've reached the story of Lot in Sodom. I remembered reflecting early on the problem of Abram and Lot in Genesis 13. both of them had too much property and they had to split. Lot chose the best land in the plains of Jordan and he pitched his tent towards Sodom. It wasn't long that Genesis 14 revealed that Lot soon went from pitching his tent towards Sodom that he entered that sin city.

So how bad was Sodom? The Bible describes them to be exceedingly wicked (Genesis 13:13). I think about how it must be very sickening for any archaeologist to land into the remains of those sites. The word sodomy didn't just come from the name Sodom for nothing. Some want to dismiss it a myth yet sites at Mt. Usdom had evidence of sulfur and brimstone raining on where Sodom and Gomorrah used to be. Even some archaeologists may be too disgusted to find the ancient sex religion of these people. Just thinking ho…

My Reflection on Abraham's Departing and the Conflict with Lot

As I read through Genesis, it's easy to see how the post-Flood world wasn't any better either. This reflection will cover from Genesis 12-14. This would be the story that involve Abraham back when he was called Abram and Sarah when was once called Sarai. Hebrews 11:8-10 that it was by faith that he obeyed God's command.
I thought about the whole promise that God said in Genesis 12:2-3, "And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed." This is a serious command. God doesn't play games when He says things. This was the covenant that was made with Abram. If God blesses a person then you ought not to go against God's hand! Every person who is made right in God's sight is a beneficiary of this covenant. 
Galatians 3:7 says that anyone today can be considered a c…

My Thoughts on Noah's Ark and Repeating the Same Mistakes All Over Again

I have no doubt that we're in the Last Days but I don't know how many last days have been left. Ever since Jesus ascended into Heaven - it was already the start of the Last Days. The prophecies concerning wrongful persecution of Christians and dwindling immorality. Then it comes into my mind what Jesus said about the days of Noah in Matthew 24:37-38 and Luke 17:26-27. People today are really so wicked that it brings me back to Genesis 6-9 where we see a pattern.
We could think about how the Creation led to the Fall. The fall of man was so well-detailed in Genesis 3. All it took was for Adam and Eve to break one simple rule - by eating the tree of the fruit of knowledge of good and evil. Ever since then, the world suffered and they were paying the consequences. Now we have the two lineages - one of Cain and the other of Seth. After Abel died, Seth became the new head of the godly line and out from Seth came today's mankind. But what's so sad is that we're all Seth&…

My Thoughts on Cain's Offering vs. Abel's Offering

As I reread Genesis for the nth time - I want to really do my thoughts on Cain's offering vs. Abel's offering. There's some debate on why Cain's offering wasn't accepted and why Abel's was accepted. Genesis 4 tells us the whole story of both brothers who were the first two children born of sin. It's not Abel was necessarily having "good works that exceeded Cain's" as some may suggest. Nothing seems to suggest that Cain offered rotten vegetables. But what was the real problem?

There could be the heart problem with Cain. Maybe, the problem wasn't entirely based on the offering as some may suggest. Hebrews 11:4 tells us that by faith, Abel offered a far more excellent sacrifice. With that in mind, maybe Cain didn't give his best to the LORD though it may be possible God already commanded a sin offering. We do read grain offerings in Leviticus 2:1-2 but remember this was before the Law was written. So it's highly possible that God comm…
