Holiness from the presence of God

Exodus 3:1-5 (NKJV) 1 Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian. And he led the flock to the back of the desert, and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. 2 And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst […]

Are the gospels complete about Jesus?

by Theodore Wright. Are the gospels of the New Testament actually an account of everything Jesus Christ did? What Luke wrote was… The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, – Acts 1:1 (NKJV)   Yet, in the Bible verse just before that, John apparently says […]

Vashti was asked only to wear her crown

by Theodore Wright. How simple a command this was! To come to the party just simply wearing her royal crown. Yet, as mentioned in the Holy Bible book of Esther, Queen Vashti would not do it!   But why not? After a party of 180 days, King Ahaserus showed off his riches and empire kingdom. […]

Jesus Himself denied the Apocrypha as inspired

by Theodore Wright.   If the Apocrypha were Holy Writ for the Old Testament, it would have been penned in Hebrew/Aramaic. It would have been recognized commonly by Jews as Holy Scripture which it is not. The books of the Apocrypha were written afterwards in the Greek language before Messiah opened the Kingdom of God […]

Scared silly? The Lord’s remedy

by Theodore Wright.   This psalm is wonderfully beautiful about the LORD’s deliverance of us from fear.   Psalm 34:1-8 (NKJV) I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2 My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; The humble shall hear of it and be […]

Did God command us to light the Chanukah candles?

by Theodore Wright. Chanukah (Hanukkah) is a beautiful Hebrew tradition celebrated throughout the whole world. At this time, during the lighting of the candles, it is said… “Blessed art thou, O Lord our God, King of the universe, who hast sanctified us by thy commandments, and commanded us to kindle the light of Chanukah.”   […]

Wide assumption about Saint Mary

To tell you this, plain and simple…Saint Mary cannot mediate for you to God. “Saint Mary cannot mediate for me? Why not?”   Because it is written… For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, – 1 Timothy 2:5 RSVCE*   *Scripture quotations are from […]

Pull the curtain. There He is! GOD!

by Theodore Wright.   Oh, you don’t believe that it can be that easy? Well, IT IS! Even some Christians had that told me this couldn’t be done. Yet they only said this to me because they never sought themselves to pull the curtain. People often do not realize that it is God moving when […]

Hermeneutical wishful thinking

by Theodore Wright I am not saying that this is my own hermeneutical wishful thinking nor even that I have such. This is something I find devoted Cessationists have. Cessationism is a doctrine stating that spiritual gifts (such as speaking in tongues, prophecy and healing) ceased with the early church. Cessationism says that the Holy […]

A Cretan said, “Cretans are always liars”

by Theodore Wright.   One of them, a prophet of their own, said, “Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons.” This testimony is true. – Titus 1:12-13a NKJV   Do you mean to tell me that a Cretan prophet actually said, “Cretans are always liars”? Well, if that is the case then he must […]
