What Is Light?

What Is Light? from the May 09, 2016 eNews issue by Lambert Dolphin Human vision is utterly amazing in its ability to receive and process a wealth of information concerning levels of light intensity, colors, motion, and stereoscopic depth of field. However, as wonderful as our eyesight is, we are able to see only electromagnetic waves between 400 and 700 nanometers in wavelength. Young Isaac Newton in 1666 used a prism Continue Reading

To be God’s friend

Genesis 18: 17 & 19  Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do?  For I know him...  Genesis 22:12  For now I know that thou fearest God.  God graciously visits those in whom He has raised the expectation of Him.  He reveals His Secrets to His friends, but only human improbability often sets up in contradiction to the Divine Promise.  Those who are fittest to rule have learned to obey, and it was implicit obedience that Continue Reading

God’s forbearance

Psalm 78:39 For He remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again. “For your great strength is always at Your call; Who can withstand the might of Your arm? In Your sight the whole world is like a grain of dust that tips the scales, Like a drop of morning dew falling on the ground. Yet You are merciful to all, because you can do all things And overlook men’s sins so that they can repent. Yes, Continue Reading

God’s choice vs. the voice of the people

2 Chronicles 6:5-6 Since the day I brought My people out of the land of Egypt I chose no city among all the tribes of Israel to build a house in, that My Name might be there; neither chose I any man to be ruler over My people Israel; But I have chosen Jerusalem, that My Name [and the symbol of My Presence] might be there, and have chosen David to be over My people Israel. God is plainly saying here it was not His desire for Israel to have a Continue Reading

God is found everywhere

Genesis 28:12, 13, 15, 17 And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to Heaven; and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it! And behold, the Lord stood over and beside him…..

The Wars of the LORD

Joshua 10:40 So Joshua smote all the land, the hill country, the South, the lowland, and the slopes, and all their kings; he left none remaining, but utterly destroyed all that breathed, as the Lord the God of Israel commanded. [Deuteronomy 20:16]. Amplified Bible. As the presence of “the Prince of the Lord’s host” [Joshua 5:13-14] indicates, Jehovah will take part in this conflict, not as an ally or an adversary, but as Continue Reading

Strange and Unholy Fire

Leviticus 10:3 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer and put fire in it, and put incense on it, and offered strange and unholy fire before the Lord, as He had not commanded them. And there came forth fire from before the Lord and killed them, and they died before the Lord. Then Moses said to Aaron, This is what the Lord meant when He said, I [and My will, not their own] will be acknowledged as hollowed by those who come Continue Reading

Within the Veil

 Leviticus 16:1-2 After the death of Aaron’s two sons, when they drew near before the Lord [offered false fire] and died, [Lev. 10:1-2] The Lord said to Moses, Tell Aaron your brother he must not come at all times into the holy of holies within the veil, before the mercy seat upon the ark, lest he die; for I will appear in the cloud on the mercy seat. [Heb. 9:7-15, 25-28] The priests being warned by the death of Nadab and Abihu to approach Continue Reading

GOD–all in all

‘When he giveth quietness, who then can make trouble? and when he hideth his face, who then can behold him? whether it be done against a nation, or against a man only.’ Job 34:29 Suggested Further Reading: 2 Corinthians 10:1–5 If some of us were fallen asleep, and the faithful ones buried—if the Spirit of God were gone, you would say, ‘Well, we are still a large and influential congregation; we can afford to get a talented minister, Continue Reading

God’s Glory Manifested

John 17:4 [RSV] I glorified Thee on earth, having accomplished the work which Thou gavest me to do. The Lord Jesus has been manifesting God’s glory as He has come into the world, and as He has done the work that the Father gave Him to do. But, of course, that was a veiled glory. You will notice that the Lord does not divest Himself of His glory when He comes into His flesh, and is born in Bethlehem. He veils His glory. Charles Wesley is Continue Reading
