It’s almost Christmas so with that being said I’ve compiled a fun list of traditions, facts, things we THINK are facts, and just general joyful info (some stranger than others). Continue reading Christmas: Truths, not truths, facts, and straight up weird traditions
We are now in the Advent season and we’re going to look at the promise of God and then different responses TO that promise. So in today’s podcast we look at Gabriel’s word to Mary and what those words truly meant then and today. Continue reading Luke 1:26-38 What’s In A Promise?
What does it mean when God goes silent? To a people who thrive on the very word of God – how do we go about this world when we cannot hear, know, or be led by his voice? Well, the people of Israel were about to find out. And why would God do this? Because they had not become whom God had created, and set them apart, to be. Continue reading Amos 8:4-14 When All Is Silent
In today’s podcast we look at the vision that was given to Amos as well as the interaction between Amos, Amaziah, and the king as they all reflect what it means to “live plumb” to God. Continue reading Amos 7-8:3 Being Plumb
In this podcast we look at Amos’ words to the people of God who longed for God to return. A people who were used to God intervening and coming when his enemies were attacking him they wanted that again. But what happens when you actually get what you want and yet you don’t realize what you really had asked for? What you get… is the “Day of Yahweh” Continue reading Amos 5:18-6:14 The Day of Yahweh
In our podcast today we find the main issue in ALL of Amos, that justice and righteousness must mean something to us. That these two things are the very nature of who God is and yet we, like a chemist, have changed them from what they ought to be to something new, foreign, corrupt, and broken. Continue reading Amos 5:1-17 Understanding What it Means to Live
The people of God had become reckless and careless with not only one another but in their worship of Him…and never did they care. Even with God’s relentless actions in their lives (through “natural” actions (wind, rain, floods, etc but also by sending prophets) the people never responded. In today’s podcast we look at what the sins of the people had become and the reminder that God DOES act – and he still has been acting to this day. Continue reading Amos 4 – The God Who Acts
Amos’ message finally hits the intended target: Israel. Why? Because God has told his people, time and time again, how they are to treat others and yet here are his covenantal children NOT doing as he has required. Continue reading Amos 2:6-3:15 God’s Covenantal Judgment
We are in a 7 week podcast series on the book of Amos and we, as Amos does, start with the surrounding nations AROUND Israel. That while 95% of God’s words are TO Israel he starts off with the surrounding nations for a reason. And it’s a reason that should give you and I pause. Continue reading Amos 1-2:5 The Roar from Zion
In our last podcast (last because we had to skip it) we look at Paul’s declaration that simply because we can doesn’t give us the freedom TO. That while sin is in our lives and Christ saves us that doesn’t mean we can just live into the freedom to sin. You and I, by the grace of God, have the Holy Spirit living and dwelling and working in us – and HIS work doesn’t play nicely with the fleshly work!
