A Glorified Body; The Gravity of Christ in Us

There is much focus of late, both the religious and so-called secular camps, on 'Heaven' & the 'After Life'!  'Is there life after death?' and what is 'Heaven really like?'; 'is there a 'heaven'?' are just of few of the questions being considered. The real question is, though, should we consider them at all!?

With so much of a focus on what happens to us when this…

Surprised by ( a Fulfilled ) Hope ( of the Resurrection )

I have recently had the privilege to pick up, and read, a book by N. T. Wright, entitled 'Surprised by Hope': I guess that you could say this article is a bit of a review of his book; but even more than that, I think, it is a review, in the wider sense, of the main thesis behind his thinking, of the future hope of the resurrection of the body.

The Likeness of His Resurrection ( How Shall We Then Live? )

Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Incompetence of the Town of Smithfield

Incompetence of the Town of Smithfield

Smithfield is a small community that is a nice quiet place to relax, play and live. Our town was incorporated on February 29, 1840 making it "Maine's only Leap Year Town". There are many things that make this town an enjoyable place, but lately the people hired in the town office have made it a difficult place to live. Specifically the selectmen Richard A. Moore, Dale M. Churchill, and Justin S. Furbush have chosen to neglect their responsibilities…

RACHEL and LEAH a once-upon-a-time story of the 2 covenants

         "...The LORD make the woman that is come into thine house like Rachel and like Leah, which two did build the house of Israel:"  (Ruth 4:11)

     This post involves some observations of the likenesses between the story of Jacob's marriages and the Old and New Covenant relationships God developed with His people.

     Taking the verse from Ruth above, we read that the two women, Rachel and Leah, were given the distinction of building Jacob's family - the "house…

The bones of Joseph

I heard a study on the paralell of Jesus and Joseph and one of the subject was the fact that Joseph wanted his bones buried in the holy land showing thus that he believed in the bio rez. Read something or have a tought on this. Thanx

Gen 50:25 YLT  And Joseph causeth the sons of Israel to swear, saying, `God doth certainly inspect you, and ye have brought up my bones from this place .'

Exo 13:19 YLT  And Moses taketh the bones of Joseph with him, for…

Entering God's Rest--thoughts on Hebrews and Genesis

Thoughts on Hebrews and Genesis: I am just trying to work through some thoughts as I study the book of Hebrews and in doing so it took me back to Genesis...the following is just my thoughts as I try to work though it, and I am not saying that I think for sure I have this right but am hoping for some feedback and correction. (I have yet to study covenant creation so this may not line up too well with it or maybe it does but this is just my attempt to link the following two areas of scripture).… Continue

The Bible is not “scientifically accurate”: why that’s good news for Christians

Nice little article by Ben Irwin showing once again problem passages in the Bible are not really a problem when read with a proper hermeneutic and understanding why the writers wrote the way they did.

"In other words, Genesis 1 reflects an ancient cosmology which we all know to be scientifically inaccurate. The earth is not a flat disc surrounded by a primeval ocean. There is no solid…

Jeremiah 33:20-21 explains why Jesus is not reigning physically on David’s throne

Jeremiah 33:20-21 reads, “This is what the LORD says: ‘If you can break my covenant with the day and my covenant with the night, so that day and night no longer come at their appointed time, then my covenant with David my servant . . . can be broken and David will no longer have a descendant to reign on his throne.’”

Michael Miano, Jeff Vaughn, and Tim Martin Follow Up on Ham/Nye Debate

Just thought I should pass this on.

Michael Miano spent two shows following up on the Ken Ham vs. Bill Nye debate.

Jeff and Tim offer a biblical alternative to Ken Ham's "creation model" composed of young-earth creationism and a global flood in Noah's day. Tucked into the discussion are some recent observations related to the Covenant Creation model. 

Here is the link:…

An Open Letter To Keith A. Mathison

Dear Mr. Mathison,                                                                                        February 10, 2014


I did want to formally respond to you concerning who actually “bears the burden” in this debate to respond and your communication with me as to why you have not responded let alone acknowledged that a full preterist response has been given to your book, When Shall These Things Be?  A Reformed Response to Hyper-Preterism vs. our Second…

How the Roman forces in Israel during the Jewish War fulfilled every verse concerning the beast out of the earth in Revelation 13:11-18

The two horns (kings) of the land beast are the 2 generals of this army: Vespasian and Titus.  This land beast calls fire from heaven.  The emblem of the 12th Legion is a lightning bolt—fire from heaven.  Titus calls fire down from heaven in Revelation 13:13 through his control over the 12th Legion who aided in the…

The Lord's Prayer Fulfilled

I have seen a few preterists tinker with this idea over the years. Not sure if anyone has systematically developed the concept out and what it means for God's people today. Here is my best attempt. The sermon titled "The Lord's Prayer Fulfilled" is #21 in this sermon series:

" And the sea gave up the dead which were in it..."

How many times in the past has the content of this verse been recited at the ship's railing as the remains of a crew member slid off the end of a board into the waves below?  With all due respect to the captains reciting the burial service over the dead, this verse encompasses far more than appears on the surface.  

Spoiler alert:  The verses covered below will be pointing out a connection to a biological resurrection of the house of Israel in 70 AD.
