Isaiah in the High Places

by admin

    Isaiah in the High Places By Wendy Wippel The age of enlightenment was “a cultural movement of 17th and 18th century intellectuals who emphasized reason and individualism rather than tradition.” (Oxford Dictionary). German pastor Friedrich Schleiermacher (a.k.a. the “father of modern hermeneutics”) was one of them. Not good. Hermeneutics is Bible interpretation. And it’s his […]

    A Heart of Wisdom

    by admin

      A Heart of Wisdom By Wendy Wippel Luke predicted a time when Christians would be fair game for ridicule, persecution, and  even death. Today, anybody with eyes and ears and a news feed recognizes an increasing distaste for those who bear His name. You have to wonder, will faith endure till His return? New data […]

      We Three Kings

      by admin

        We Three Kings By Wendy Wippel What’s my favorite book of the Bible? No Contest. Daniel. Chock full of both history and prophecy, my all-time favorite topics. To me it is endlessly fascinating. It’s also a favorite of Bible skeptics. For sort of the same reasons: there’s lots of prophecy and history from which to […]

        Quark Soup

        by admin

          Quark Soup By Wendy Wippel The first verse of Genesis makes it clear that the God of the Bible was the agent of our existence: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep.” Translation: Before God spoke it into […]

          Matrimonial Makeovers

          by admin

            Matrimonial Makeovers By Wendy Wippel One verse that has stumped me since pretty much the first week I belonged to Jesus is I John 3:2. “We know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.” I’ve been working on what that methodology would look like […]

            Ezekiel Countdown

            by admin

              Ezekiel Countdown By Wendy Wippel The Book of Ezekiel, though considered one of the most difficult (and therefore least-read) books in the Old Testament) is really an amazing book, providing (albeit sometimes in fairly confusing imagery) a pretty straightforward timeline of Biblical prophecy starting with the nation’s being taken to Babylon in chains and ending […]

              A Today Without a Yesterday

              by admin

                A Today Without a Yesterday By Wendy Wippel The Greek philosopher Aristotle, who lived about 400 years before Christ, wrote a book entitled, Physics which popularized his theory that the universe was eternal. (Aristotle preferred to believe that the universe was eternal because that avoided the need for a God that had created it.) He […]

                Happy New Year?

                by admin

                  Happy New Year? By Wendy Wippel I hope one and all had a blessed remembrance of our Lord’s birth and found exactly what they wanted under their respective trees. But does anybody else get the feeling, from our daily headlines, that those of us waiting for the Lord’s return and according to a boat load […]

                  The First Noel

                  by admin

                    The First Noel By Wendy Wippel Somewhere amid the European Christmas tradition we inherited as Americans and the stuff we invented ourselves (flying reindeer? Snow, holly, and mistletoe?  The Grinch?  Wenceslas and Wassail?  Santa Claus?) we have lost any appreciation for the utter Jewishness of the events we celebrate. That it was Jewish prophecies being […]

                    One Fat and Sassy Church

                    by admin

                      One Fat and Sassy Church By Wendy Wippel Believers see the UN’s Agenda 2030 as a blueprint for one-world government ratified September 25, 2015 as a harbinger of the seven-year period called the Tribulation. Doubters point to the persistence of deep divisions in world views, most significantly with respect to religion. No argument there. But […]

                      Alas, Aleppo

                      by admin

                        Alas, Aleppo Wednesday, December 14, 2016 By Wendy Wippel I have been trying to follow the Battle for Aleppo, I really have. But the sound-bite news coverage that both TV and online have reverted to (even on Fox News you hear way more about Brad and Angie then you do Al-Bashir) makes it hard, and […]

                        Eternity 2.0

                        by admin

                          Eternity 2.0 In Defense of the Faith Wednesday, December 07, 2016 By Wendy Wippel Aubrey de Grey, gerontology researcher at the University of Cambridge (England), is famous for asserting (confidently) that the next few decades will see huge increases in human lifespans. His exact words, in fact, were, “the first person to live to be […]
