When Life Unravels

Does life ever hit you as hard as it does me, leaving you in a haze of confusion and fear?

Sometimes we get hit in the heart by the loss of a loved one or a broken relationship.

Other times fear plasters us straight between the eyes, like when the doctor uses the “C” word or the presidential election polls open — and close. ?

Still, other times we get hit from behind by a car. A literal car that shatters out our back windshield and leaves us unraveled.

I’ve lived through each of these moments, and I spoke about it recently.

Here’s my short video message. I hope it will bring you encouragement when your life unravels. [Read more…]

The Tower of Babel, Pentecost, & The Red Thread (Part 4) ~ Jesus in the Old Testament

The Tower of Babel, Pentecost, & The Red Thread ~ Finding Jesus in the Old Testament

The Tower of Babel, Pentecost, & The Red Thread ~ Finding Jesus in the Old Testament

 

When God came down to stop the people from building the Tower of Babel, He wasn’t being a fun-sucker. (Genesis 11:1-9)

He was protecting them from the danger of exalting their own name.

(In my series What Was So Wrong With The Tower of Babel? we looked at those dangers. If you don’t know what was so wrong with the Tower of Babel, and why we should even care, check it out.)

Now we’re going to look at how God, in the midst of all the drama, masterfully wove into these events several Red Thread Clues.[†] [Read more…]

The Red Thread in Noah’s Ark — The Summary

What a journey we’ve been on through The Red Thread in Noah’s Ark!

It’s taken awhile, but I hope you can now see God’s work in Noah’s Ark that sails past your childhood Sunday School lessons. 

Below, I’ve collected each of The Red Threads we’ve seen, and I’ve shown how we can apply them to our lives today. [Read more…]

The Cloud ~ The Red Thread in Noah’s Ark (Part Eleven)

Rainbows & Clouds ~ Grace & Righteousness find themselves in Jesus Christ

Rainbows & Clouds ~ Grace & Righteousness find themselves in Jesus Christ.

 

“I set my bow in the cloud . . . ”
~ Genesis 9:13

 

in the cloud . . . not in the sky . . . not in the heavens . . . in the cloud.

Could this mention of “the cloud” be nothing more than a random detail? 

If rainbows couldn’t be seen anywhere else but in clouds, I might not have stopped to think about it, but they can, so I did.

I’m not going to tell you why God stated that He set His bow “in the cloud” because I can’t.

I can’t find any verse in Scripture that explains exactly why He didn’t set it “in the sky” or “in the heavens,” but let me tell you what I did find. It just may take your breath away as it did mine. [Read more…]

Noah and his family stepped out of the ark into a new world.

After Noah worshipped God at the altar, God responded.

“Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him:  ‘I now establish My covenant with you and with your descendants after you and with every living creature that was with you—the birds, the livestock and all the wild animals, all those that came out of the ark with you—every living creature on earth.

I establish My covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.’” ~Genesis 9:8-11

Don’t gloss over this monumental moment in the history of the world: [Read more…]

At the end of my last Red Thread post, I told you I had one more post in The Red Thread in Noah’s Ark series.

Psyche!

In writing what I intended to be my last post, I realized The Red Thread in Noah’s Ark is just too rich to wrap up in only one more post. In fact, it requires three more posts, including this one.

Now on to today’s Red Thread in Noah’s Ark . . . [Read more…]
