Prophetic Previews

by admin

Prophetic Previews By Wendy Wippel Most of us interested in Bible prophecy recognize that there are different levels of prophecy in the Scriptures. Meaning that there is outright prophecy, and then there is a more subtle prophecy, a kind of hidden prophecy, often in the form of foreshadowing. And the motherload of prophecy in the […]

Nothing at All

by admin

Nothing at All By Wendy Wippel I’m thinking that it hasn’t escaped most of you that I kind of groove on apologetics. Guilty as charged. I have probably 300 books on apologetics on a dedicated bookshelf. And probably a couple dozen more scattered around the house and in my car where I’ve forgotten where I […]

UNeducated

UNeducated Prophecy – Signs By Wendy Wippel You don’t have to look far afield for irrational (but nonetheless rabid) hatred of God’s chosen people. Exhibit A: Louis Farrakhan, who says that the Jews control American politics, media, finance and Hollywood. And most black organizations too. (Jews are also responsible for the slave trade. Go figure.) […]

A Singular Celebration

A Singular Celebration Witnessing Tools By Wendy Wippel Of all the  principle players in the Christmas Story, the most enigmatic, in my humble opinion, is Simeon. The guy who was in charge, at the time, of circumcision for new male additions to the Jewish Tribe. The Bible calls him just and devout, waiting for the  […]

Celebrating the Original Overcomer

Celebrating the Original Overcomer In Defense of the Faith By Wendy Wippel A member of a different church than I go to has posted, for the rest of us, a cautionary warning as we prepare to celebrate the birth of the Savior. In short, we shouldn’t. I can’t quite agree with her, as the Savior […]

God’s Inefficiency

by admin

God’s Inefficiency By Wendy Wippel I’m thinking that we probably all had at least some exposure to those flannel board renditions of creation in Sunday School where you had the round green piece of flannel (the earth) resting on a blue background (the sky). Now we know it’s nowhere near that simple. In fact, the […]

The Doomsday Donald

by admin

The Doomsday Donald Commentary on the News By Wendy Wippel I’m guessing you’re all familiar with The Doomsday Clock, whose purpose is to wrap all possible threats into a genocide-at-a glance way of estimating of how close humanity is to obliterating themselves in some man-made global catastrophe. The odds are illustrated on the clock in […]

Dude…What’s that Sound?

Dude…What’s that Sound? Witnessing Tools By Wendy Wippel The Parkes Radio Telescope in New South Wales, Australia, has had its glory days, being one of the radio antennae used to broadcast the live images of the Apollo moon landing in 1969. It’s scientists since then have contributed much to our understanding of space. They have […]

Swarms Without Number

Swarms Without Number By Wendy Wipple As somebody who’s never lived closer than 700 miles from a large body of water, I’ve never had any desire to actually immerse myself in an ocean. Closest thing in my experience was swimming in an actual swimming hole every summer at Girl Scout Camp, and, in that context, […]

Nothing New Under the Sun

Nothing New Under the Sun By Wendy Wipple For those of you s who might feel that Google has not yet put its own stamp on enough of American life, you may soon be able to give the monstrosity in Mountain view, courtesy of a malcontent former employee, another chunk of your week. Specifically, Sunday. […]

Church on Fire

by admin

Church on Fire By Wendy Wipple Today’s passage is Psalm 13, which commands all servants of the Lord (that should include everybody reading this today) to bless the Lord. But what does that really mean? We say “bless you” when someone sneezes. When we say that we “blessed a fellow Christian” it often involves an […]

What’s in a Name?

by admin

What’s in a Name? By Wendy Wippel Ever noticed how often God changed people’s names? Abraham and Sarai (both of whom acquired a “Heh”, when God changed their names, “Heh” being the Hebrew letter that represented the Holy Spirit.). Jacob, who became Israel, meaning “Prince of God” . Peter, who went from Petros (pebble) to […]
