Her House Sinks Down to Death

WE RETURN to our regularly scheduled reading this week with proverbs that are paternal calls for wisdom–and a warning against communing with spirits of the dead.

I Set Jerusalem as a Doorway to be Shaken

IRAN ATTACKED ISRAEL late last night, the first time the Islamic Republic has struck at Israel directly. The sight of missiles over the Temple Mount evokes images of the end times.

Together in the Garden of Love

IT’S APPARENT why the Song of Solomon is not often preached in church.

As a Lily Among Brambles

THE SONG OF SOLOMON has layers of meaning. On the surface, it’s a beautiful depiction of the intimate relationship between a husband and wife. At a deeper level, it’s a picture of the mutual love between Christ and his church.

The Prayer of Solomon

SOLOMON’S PRAYER for wisdom pleased God, who honored Solomon’s wish and granted him more besides.

The Wisdom of Solomon

SOLOMON BEGAN his reign with a prayer for wisdom, a prayer that was answered by God in a dream.

Your Word is a Lamp to My Feet

WE OFTEN WISH that God would show us the road we’ll travel for the rest of our lives. That’s not the sense of His promise in Psalm 119:105.


Gate of the Gods

MYSTERY BABYLON of the end times is the return of Babel.

Mysteries of the Bibleverse

YOU’VE HEARD OF the universe and the multiverse—but what about the unexplained mysteries of the Bibleverse?

Revelation 911

THE NUMBERS 9-1-1 have a specific meaning for Americans—the numbers one dials to call for help in an emergency. They’re also significant as the chapter and verse in the Book of Revelation that identifies the fallen angel called the Destroyer.

Iron and Myth 27: The Gods of War

SOME OF THE MOST epic stories from the ancient world deal with the wars of the gods. It’s not a coincidence that one of the most commonly used titles for God in the Bible is “Lord of hosts,” which literally means “Yahweh of armies.”

Mingled with the Seed of Men

KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR saw a vision that disturbed him so much that he ordered his sorcerers, enchanters, and magicians to tell him what he’d dreamed and its interpretation—on pain of death.

From Gangster to the Gospel

FROM A BROKEN HOME in Guatemala to life as a gangster in Los Angeles, Mondo De La Vega is one of the last people you’d expect to find preaching the gospel.

Skinwalkers and Stranger Things

SOMETHING STRANGE has been happening on this planet for literally thousands of years, and it connects an intrusion into our world by fallen angels to modern paranormal phenomena like those reportedly observed at Skinwalker Ranch.
