The People Who Took Judah Captive
“For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwellingplaces that are not their’s. They are terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their dignity shall proceed of themselves,” Habbakuk 1:6, 7.
At the time of this prophecy by Habbakuk, history was turning quickly. The kingdom of Judah was at a low point. Sin, idolatry and lawlessness were the norms in the land, and God was about to exercise judgment on the nation. Parts of the judgment against Israel had seemingly already started. The Chaldeans (Babylonians) were rising to their position as the preeminent world power, and the prophecy was that they would be God’s tool and means of judgment on Judah.
The question seems logical: why would God be using a…

A Need for Spiritual Renewal
“Now when these things were done, the princes came to
me, saying, The people of Israel, and the priests, and the Levites, have not separated themselves from the people of the lands, doing according to their abominations, even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites,” Ezra 9:1.
The biggest failure of God’s people has not changed in millennia; we persist in turning away from God and towards the world around us. God calls us to be separate, yet we constantly and consistently fit in more with those we live among than we do with God’s desires for us to be separate and apart from the world.
Just recently at our own church, we had what we loosely term a revival. Like the Israelites we…

Those Who Returned with Ezra
“These are now the chief of their fathers, and this is the genealogy of them that went up with me from Babylon, in the reign of Artaxerxes the king,” Ezra 8:1.
When the Jews returned to Jerusalem after seventy years of captivity in Babylon, they did not just all pack up one day and move back; they returned in several stages or waves of returnees. Ezra and the roughly fifteen hundred men, plus families, represented the second wave of those returning. Zerrubabel was the first, Ezra the second and Nehemiah was to be the third. Like those before, Ezra was willing to step out in the face of what must have been extreme uncertainty and execute God’s plan for His people.
It is easy to imagine that many had serious misgivings when various prophets started announcing to…

When sin you bring
and forgiveness you cling
are times when those who search the Holy Word with evil intent find
an apparent example of their wish to discredit it. One such instance
is that found in Proverbs 26:4-5: “Answer not a fool according to
his folly, lest thou also be like unto him. Answer a fool according
to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.” Thinking to have
found that elusive contradiction, they delight in becoming as the
subject of those verses: a fool. Let’s think about it!
literal words appear contradictory, the idea being conveyed depends
heavily upon the all important context. The nuance of any language
allows the same terms to be used contextually to convey quite
different ideas. A parent finalizing warnings to a child before
exercising imminent punishment might say, “Do that just one more
time!” Of course the idea quickly understood is “You had better
not do that one more time.” Here, the import of the message is
quickly understood by inflection of voice and/or body language, both
of which are absent in the written word, underscoring even more the
importance of context (that which is to be read or understood as
being with the text). If this is making the reader a little tired,
hang on because now we are ready to deal with the specific verses of
scripture at hand. Proverbs 26:4 is understood to convey this
meaning: Do not answer, or even pretend to be in agreement with the
frivolous comments of a close-minded fool placating him in his folly,
lest you will be like him. The next verse, 26:5 conveys the proper
interaction with one who is a fool. Answer, setting forth corrections
to the erroneous statements of a fool according to his folly,
otherwise he will be wise in his own eyes, believing you agree with
These verses of scripture, far from being contradictory are
complementary in detailing proper interactions that are sure to
become a part of everyone’s experience. Truth cannot contradict
itself, and remain. Two plus two equals four. and is an unerring
truth. If at any time the formula allows a different (contradictory)
product, it has fallen from truth to become a lie.
under consideration here is often hard for some to employ, being
sensitive to the feelings of others. But one must be true to the
truth and wisdom given him from above or become the enablement to a
lie. Men would do well to often recall the words of Solomon as he
said. “Open rebuke is better than secret love,”(Prov. 27:5), and
“Faithful are the wounds of a friend . . .” Proverbs. 27:6. Thus,
in wise discernment one does well to answer or to not answer.

A Message From Your Digital Paul Revere
Source: Introduction to a Reformed Millennial – Constitution Party
Several members of the Constitution Party’s mailing list have expressed curiosity as to who I am. It’s a fair question, and so I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself, my experiences, and why I am writing for the Constitution Party. I strongly encourage all patriots to set aside a few minutes to read all the way to the end. I understand that it is a lot of writing to take in in one go, but I believe firmly that it is to your benefit, and to the benefit of the nation.
I am an American millennial who, over the past several years, has discovered his calling to the Constitution. Recently, I have been writing on a volunteer basis for the party as a way of providing a Millennial’s perspective on the…
