YHVH Revealed

Introduction NOTE: the Tetragrammaton is variously written as YHVH or YHWH Two years ago now Mark Mickelson presented a paper in the UCG Doctrinal Committee claiming that the name “YHVH” was exclusively and only the name of God the Father, and that God the Father was the LORD [YHVH] of Hosts as well.  This if accepted […]

Explaining God

  Genesis 1:26  “And God (Elohim, plural) said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:..” [From the very beginning, Creation is represented as a collaborative effort of two Beings, here speaking as one.]  Genesis 3:22 reflects the same plurality of Beings,  “And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as […]

Satan’s Fate

 Peter wrote that no scripture can be interpreted privately, meaning that all scriptures on any subject must fit together and support one another and that no single scripture can  stand alone, or contrary to other scriptures. 2 Peter 1:20   Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. All scriptures […]

Tithing

The first example of tithing in scripture is when Abram gave a tenth of the spoils of the ten kings to Melchisedec [the one who became Jesus Christ].  Gen 14:18   And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God. 19 And he blessed him, and […]

The Doctrine of the Soul

Many believe that man has an immortal soul which after the physical death goes to a place of judgment where a decision is made by God to cast this immortal soul into eternal torment or into eternal bliss.  Others teach that the word “soul” simply means a physical body and then contradict that teaching by admitting that […]

Gay Sex and Marriage

Last Friday’s US Supreme Court ruling which required that all 50 states have the same laws permitting homosexual marriages, brought jubilant rejoicing across the political leadership who are courting the homosexual vote.  For decades there has been a big push for open legal homosexuality in America and it seems that the goals have been achieved. .  From president […]

Healing

Healing Part 1:  Why Sickness? In the beginning God created all things, and all physical things were created subject to vanity [decay].   Romans 8:20   For the creature [physical creation] was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the creature [the whole physical creation] itself […]

Divorce and Remarriage

This post  was written in collaboration with Constance Belanger and James Malm.  This post is divided into three parts:  1.  Divorce and remarriage between converted persons,  2.  Divorce and remarriage in mixed converted and unconverted marriages, 3.  Divorce and remarriage in cases where one of the spouses proves out to be unconverted after being married in good […]

The Nazarite Vow

EVERYTHING in the scriptures was written for the instruction of those called into the New Covenant.  2 Timothy 3:16  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. 1 […]

The Beatitudes

MATTHEW 5:  Blessed Are The Poor in Spirit Matthew 5 contains those scriptures known as the beatitudes  and I want to go into each one extensively.  This post is short, being written with the expectation that our guests will go to the links where these beatitudes are expounded much more fully. Matthew 5:1 And seeing the […]

The True Biblical Jesus Christ Revealed

I want to reveal the true and now largely forgotten Jesus Christ of the Bible; who has been replaced by a tolerant of sin wimp; having no zeal for his own commandments. A false Jesus who tolerates almost any situation ethics compromise and sin, in the name of a false, meaningless and without substance emotional “love;” a kind of effeminate false evangelical Jesus.  […]
