Satan Doesn’t Care About Music After All?

    Around the world, one of the greatest divisions between otherwise apparently sound, Bible-believing churches is centered on music and worship styles.  For just a moment, set aside the words and the character of the authors and performers:  can the music by itself be labeled as right or wrong?     A major argument at this point is that music is amoral – that is, it is neutral until words are added.   Isaiah 23:15-16 nails that one on the head as the Bible speaks of harlots having a particular style and melodies of their own as well as singing...

Jesus on Illegal Immigration

     Immigration is the action of coming to live permanently in a foreign country. The Bible is the story of two kingdoms at war. On the ground it is a one way refugee crisis with millions of sinners realizing the kingdom of darkness is a miserable existence and not the only option. Immigration is hugely expensive, but the King paid the price in full with his blood. He is willing to accept all refugees who wish to immigrate AS LONG AS THEY DO IT LEGALLY. The King of the kingdom of light only asks for that we renounce our former...

Feet of Gold

“His legs are as pillars of marble, set upon sockets of fine gold…”  Song 5:15 As the Bride describes her Beloved at the end of Song of Solomon chapter five, she notes that he has feet that are like sockets of fine gold.  Sockets are mentioned over fifty times with regard to the construction of the tabernacle and in those passages they were always made of brass or silver.  Song 5:15 gives us the only sockets of gold found in scripture. Jesus’ feet are mentioned a number of times in the Bible.  In his glorified state, Revelation 1:15 says he...

How’s Your Belly?

“…his belly is as bright ivory overlaid with sapphires.”   Song 5:14                 No one enjoys a stomach ache.  Just as a meal can leave you with a contented belly or a sore belly, the Bible uses the belly as a reminder of a number of positive and negative spiritual truths: The belly is a picture or type of the soul. Being the center of our body mass and figuratively picturing our innermost part, the belly is often used interchangeably with the soul in such passages as Psalm 31:9 and 44:25.  When the belly is content, all is well.  When the...

Black Lives Matter to God!

“I am black, but comely...” Song of Solomon 1:5  Historically, this statement is to be taken literally:  this beautiful love poem is between a Jewish king and his dark-skinned wife.   Where Solomon’s Bride is from is not given – we are simply told that she was a Shulamite (Song 6:13)   This designation along with the color of her skin would indicate that she was not Jewish, but a Gentile. This typology fits in well with Jesus and the Church.  Although there are many saved Jews in Christ’s church, the vast majority are Gentiles.  Throughout the Old Testament many  notable Jewish...
