Today we look at the Book of the Wars of the LORD. Bible scholars’ research leads some of them to declare that this book is the same as the Book of Jasher. Others maintain that it is altogether a different book.

Truly, it does not affect our salvation one way or another which opinion is correct. We are following their train of thought only to enhance our knowledge of ancient (non-mystical) Hebrew texts, which can shed more light on the glory and the authority of our GOD.

GOD is love, and GOD is also just. He has warred with evil humanity in the past, and He will do so in the end times.

The Book of Tears is referred to by David in his Psalm 56 verse 4:

“You number my wanderings;
Put my tears into Your bottle;
Are they not in Your book?”

Whether the book referred to is the same book as the Book of Life, or another one, we cannot know. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known” 1 Cor. 13:12.

This post is dedicated to Gila and Doron Tragerman, the parents of  four-year-old Daniel, who was killed on August 24, 2014 just 2 days before the ceasefire between Hamas and Israel. A mortar fired by Hamas struck a car in Nahal Oz, near the Gaza border, sending shrapnel flying into the Tragerman family home.

We continue our current study of the ‘books’ mentioned in Scripture; those that are not the 66 stand-alone books of the Bible.

Today we look at The Book of Remembrance, spoken of by Malachi in 3:16, which records the names of those “who fear the Lord and meditate on His Name.”

We hope that the interpretations we have expressed these past few Sundays are taken in the spirit in which they have been given. Among the reasons we have shared this with you are (but not limited to):

  • to deepen our knowledge of God’s Holy Word,
  • to learn from His past dealings with His chosen,
  • to discern what He desires from us,
  • to love Him and His Redeemer Son more and more as we get to know them personally

We accept that there are several interpretations other than the ones we have chosen to write about. And, perhaps you favor a different interpretation, however, let us “avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife.”  2 Timothy 2:23

May the word of God be glorified!

SUNDAY POST: Part Two, The Lamb's Book of Life

Last Sunday we wrote on the Book of Life. Today, we look at the Lamb’s Book of Life. We believe that these books are not the same, but two different books. Revelation is the only place where the Lamb’s Book of Life is mentioned – twice. This book contains the names of those from the Church

To our readers, A little over three years ago, when this blog began, I made a promise to my wife/editor that on Sunday, no matter what, we would take the day off and post a devotional that would point to Jesus Christ. I can tell you that on several Sundays I tried to convince her that

SUNDAY POST: The Judgment Seat of Christ

This Sunday, as we take a rest from the news, we are featuring the work of the Rapture Ready (.com) website. Todd Strandberg’s work is a valuable resource for the Bible Prophecy student. On his About page he said this: “I don’t know of anyone who watches more news broadcasts, reads more news articles, or browses
