Isaiah - A Call to Reformation (Live) - Look at the Book

7/17/2021
This is the live version. The former podcast was a studio recording. God wants a relationship with His people, not an association. His people back then thought if they maintained some association with God and be like the world around them at the same time they would be OK. That's like getting married and expecting your spouse to be OK with you being intimate with other people. It's like maintaining the look/form of marriage but not having your heart in it. Without your heart, it will...

The Silent Years and The Gospels - Look at the Book

7/17/2021
There were 400 "silent" years between Malachi, the last book of the Old Testament, and The Gospels. What were some of the significant transitions that occurred before the Messiah entered the scene? It is in the midst of these changing times the Messiah comes onto the scene. When the world was ready to embrace its own ways, thinking it was progressing, God broke through to make sure the faithful were not led astray by man's thinking and wisdom, which comes to nothing. When God became man...

Esther - For Such a Time as This - Look at the Book

7/1/2021
There is a saying: "I was at the right place, at the right time, with the right people…" Most who say this rarely take credit, since such things occur without us knowing or planning it. It is all to the glory of God. People in such circumstances know for a fact God was at work in leading them down these paths and opening and closing doors in their lives. The book of Esther is about such tides in the life of one young Jewish girl, living in the capital of Persia around 475 B.C. It tells...

Haggai - What Occupies Your Heart? - Look at the Book

6/25/2021
The Jews were coming back from captivity. They had seen Babylon crushed, as God had promised, and under Darius they were returning to their homeland. They began rebuilding Jerusalem. They were focused on building their homes and had started with the temple's foundation. However, they became discouraged by several factors and focused only on continuing to build their homes. The temple remained in ruins. God uses Haggai to address generational issues applicable to today: Lethargy,...

Daniel - God Rules the Nations - Look at the Book

6/18/2021
Daniel - God Rules the Nations One of the most compelling features in Daniel is the amazing prophetic interpretation. The history of dominating world empires is accurately portrayed from Daniel's time way into the advent of the Messiah. That is almost 700 years of accurately predicting major world events! Daniel, along with Isaiah, was greatly disputed by critics for this reason until the Dead Sea Scrolls and other archaeological findings, including cuneiform tablets speaking of his...

Fiel y Verdadero - Dios es Nuestra Roca - Atributos del Carácter de Dios Las relaciones florecen con la confianza.

La fiabilidad se basa en la evidencia, algo tangible que demuestra probabilidad de buen funcionamiento y veracidad.

Jonah - On the Run - Look at the Book

Respira Lento y Profundo - La Paridad de la Disposición de Dios

5/13/2021
La ira de Dios nunca está fuera de Su control. Dios no sólo está dispuesto a tolerar, sino a ser paciente. Su paciencia es tanto una muestra de Su amor como Su ira. Él se apresura a perdonar, y no se aferra a Su ira como nosotros.

Ecclesiastes - Life is a Paradox - Look at the Book

5/7/2021
"Everything is meaningless..." This is the theme of the book. In stark contrast to Proverbs, where there are clear distinctions between good and evil, cause and effect; Ecclesiastes deals with the paradoxical nature of life and the profound enigma it presents to us.

Favoreciendo lo Desfavorable - La Gracia de Dios - Atributos del Caracter de Dios

5/1/2021
Usamos la palabra gracia para describir muchas cosas diferentes, incluyendo cómo las personas tratan a los demás (favorablemente) y cómo la gente se presenta (elegantes/agradables). Este mismo doble significado existe en el hebreo. Al rastrear la palabra a través del Antiguo Testamento, podemos obtener una mejor comprensión de lo que es la gracia y cómo podemos depender de ella.

Proverbs - Roadmap to Wisdom - Look at the Book

4/24/2021
When God created man he lived in bliss before the Lord, without worry, care, or fear. The knowledge of good and evil was presented by the accuser as something to be coveted by mankind. And so the knowledge of good and evil was stolen from Eden. We have been cursed by that knowledge ever since. God, however, invites us to give up living by the confusion of the knowledge of the world, by that knowledge of good and evil, and instead to live by his guidance. God invites us to let go of the...

El Vientre de Dios - La Compasión de Dios - Atributos del Carácter de Dios

4/21/2021
Asociamos la matriz con lo femenino. Después de todo, sólo las mujeres son capaces de dar a luz a un ser humano. Dios usa la palabra, vientre, para describir el afecto tierno que tiene por nosotros. La matriz es el lugar más seguro para el ser humano en una etapa muy frágil de crecimiento. Está diseñada para protegernos, acunarnos y mantenernos más cerca del ser que estamos duplicando. La matriz es un tipo de mundo, arca, e iglesia. Es como un invernadero, protector de las fuerzas dañinas...

1 Kings - Can Man's Heart Really Rule? - Look at the Book

4/21/2021
There are some things we can learn about having the right heart and mind in order to further God's plan and not become a stumbling block. You really only have three options: Lead, follow, or get out of the way. 1 Kings gives us some practical advice to succeed, even though we don't have the wisdom of Solomon, in spite of our deceitful and sick hearts. Young people, Solomon's life sets a bar for us to evaluate not only his reign and influence, but also the rest of the kings described in the...

Dios es consistente. Los acontecimientos documentados para nosotros a lo largo de Su historia con Su pueblo del convenio señalan Su amor y carácter constantes. Ha demostrado una y otra vez ser confiable en medio de nuestra lealtad vacilante y nuestras dudas. Necesitamos conocerlo. ¡Esa es la vida eterna! La humanidad necesita un intercesor justo para que Dios incline Su balanza hacia la misericordia y la compasión. Esto se debe a nuestra fe vacilante y nuestra propensidad a la...

2 Samuel - The Lord is Our Rock - Look at the Book

3/28/2021
As David's life unfolds and God relates everything about this king whose lineage He was upholding, we see it was fraught with sin and trials, but the Lord also makes David's faithfulness evident during these hard times. Trouble comes to everyone as well as sin. It is not trouble or sin that should define us, but how we respond to it. We can take comfort from David's example in seeking the Lord, always trusting God's mercy, and never giving in to fear, anger, or hopelessness. David knows...

El carácter de Dios es inquebrantable. Esto es algo difícil de aceptar para nosotros. Como seres humanos, estamos en constante evolución en nuestro pensamiento y madurez. Es difícil para nosotros comprender un ser perfecto en carácter y completo de maneras que ni siquiera podemos imaginar. Dios inclina la balanza de esta tensión hacia el amor y la compasión por Su pueblo del convenio, estableciendo un fundamento para que Su pueblo aprenda a mostrar amor constante el uno al otro y al...

1 Samuel - Foundations of a Godly House - Look at The Book

3/24/2021
In the book of First Samuel we read how the nation of Israel transitioned from a judgeship of loosely federated tribes into one nation. Samuel is a central character due to his integrity. He is the closest shadow of our Lord Christ so far in our reading due to the role he played in the formation of the Davidic kingdom and the fact that Samuel was the only Prophet Priest-King aside from the mysterious Melchizedek we saw in Genesis.
