God’s words of reassurance and promise were for the people of God, for the Judahites who had been taken captive and sent into exile. But God opens up God’s appeal to all people in every nation. #Isaiah45 #MatureViewofGod
Revelation 12: Cliffhanger
The narrative from beginning to end certainly reads as a mystical vision. #Revelation12 #TheDragon #TheWomaninTravail
Revelation 12: Saints versus Satan
A massive heavenly conflict, the ultimate in cataclysms. Is this oracle a glimpse into the prehistoric dawn of creation, long before humanity entered the stage? Or is it a harbinger of the terrifying time to come, the Tribulation? #Revelation12 #Satan
“Slaves, Women & Homosexuals”
This book first came out in 2001, so a lot of water has traveled under the proverbial bridge since he sent this manuscript off for final approval. Nevertheless, we found ourselves instantly drawn in by Webb’s hermeneutic of redemptive movement. #LGBTQ
Isaiah 45: A Hope, and a Future
It can feel empowering to feel like you and I are entitled to better treatment, but we can never know the whole story, it is simply too vast. #Isaiah45 #PotterandtheClay #HopeandaFuture
Isaiah 45: The Nature of Prophecy
Sometimes, in scripture, it seems as though God responds with compassion and answers to questions. Other times, it seems God responds with a rebuke. Why?

Revelation 12: The Woman, The Son, The Dragon
It is a pivotal story placed at the center of John’s Apocalypse, but who are the characters, and what does it mean? #Revelation12 #TheDragon #WomanInLabor #RodofIron
Isaiah 45: Cyrus Fulfilled Prophecy
God is never defeated or thwarted by what happens in the real world. The Lord is actually able to work through everything to move forward with God’s plan, and all events have one ultimate goal of redemption and restoration.
Isaiah 45: Cyrus the Great
The Bible does not offer superficial answers to these questions. The Bible does not offer catchy slogans or rhyming word art. The Bible instead pushes us to a mature view of Who God really is, so that we can put our trust in the God of reality, the God Who actually exists.
