    Summary of Bible references on the Rapture

    1 Corinthians 10 -- The Lord’s table is the only feast day that we, as Christians, are required to keep. Colossians tells us that these feast days are a shadow of things to come. On the one hand this feast reminds us of the passover, the feast of unleavened bread, the feast of the new fruits...

    1Corinthians 14 -- Let’s learn how to prophesy

    This may be one of the most important and most misunderstood chapters in the entire Bible. Without a doubt those that attack Paul for being sexist support that claim almost exclusively on this chapter. Since these verses are misunderstood it is essential that we go through this chapter verse...

    Romans 14 -- Diversity of thought

    1 Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters. Christians have all been trained in the articles of the faith, the items that are not disputable. But apart from one God and Father of all, Jesus Christ Lord of all, and the faith that has once for all been...

    Romans 13 -- The day is near

    1 Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. This has been a wonderful lesson this last year. When George Floyd died it sparked all kinds of riots and looting...

    Jeremiah 6 -- They are called rejected silver

    1 “Flee for safety, people of Benjamin! Flee from Jerusalem! Sound the trumpet in Tekoa! Raise the signal over Beth Hakkerem! For disaster looms out of the north, even terrible destruction. What a picture. The Southern kingdom was composed of Judah and Benjamin. Here we see...

    Exodus 15 -- Defeating tyranny in 10 steps

    1 Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord: “I will sing to the Lord, for he is highly exalted. Both horse and driver he has hurled into the sea. Tyranny controls people by creating a terrifying enemy whether internal or external. In this case it was the Egyptian army. They...

    1Corinthians 12 -- A more excellent way for Oneness and Diversity

    1 Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. 2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols. 3 Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be...

    Exodus 14 -- Tell the Israelites to move on!

    1 Then the Lord said to Moses, 2 “Tell the Israelites to turn back and encamp near Pi Hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea. They are to encamp by the sea, directly opposite Baal Zephon. 3 Pharaoh will think, ‘The Israelites are wandering around the land in confusion, hemmed in by the desert.’ 4...

    Hosea 7 They are like a faulty bow

    Gill summarizes this chapter: This chapter either begins a new sermon, discourse, or prophecy, or it is a continuation of the former; at least it seems to be of the same argument with the latter part of it, only it is directed to Israel alone; and consists of complaints against them because of...

    2Samuel 19 -- Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation

    Paul writes, "Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death" (2 Corinthians 7:10). 1 [a]Joab was told, “The king is weeping and mourning for Absalom.” 2 And for the whole army the victory that day was turned into mourning, because...

    Hosea 6 -- The Lord is coming as sure as the Sun will rise

    1 “Come, let us return to the Lord. He has torn us to pieces but he will heal us; he has injured us but he will bind up our wounds. I would hope by now every Christian could see the error in supporting Biden. It isn’t merely Trump supporters who are saying he is unfit for office...

    2Samuel 18 -- Playtime is over.

    1 David mustered the men who were with him and appointed over them commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds. 2 David sent out his troops, a third under the command of Joab, a third under Joab’s brother Abishai son of Zeruiah, and a third under Ittai the Gittite. The king told the...

    Hosea 5 -- Now is the time to seek the Lord in earnest.

    1 “Hear this, you priests! Pay attention, you Israelites! Listen, royal house! This judgment is against you: You have been a snare at Mizpah, a net spread out on Tabor. The Equality Act is a horrendous thing. However you look at it you are seeing a despicable act intended to humiliate...

    2Samuel 17 -- A fool and his money are soon parted

    1 Ahithophel said to Absalom, “I would[a] choose twelve thousand men and set out tonight in pursuit of David. 2 I would attack him while he is weary and weak. I would strike him with terror, and then all the people with him will flee. I would strike down only the king 3 and bring all the people...

    2Samuel 16 -- The Equality act and Ahithophel’s advice

    1 When David had gone a short distance beyond the summit, there was Ziba, the steward of Mephibosheth, waiting to meet him. He had a string of donkeys saddled and loaded with two hundred loaves of bread, a hundred cakes of raisins, a hundred cakes of figs and a skin of wine. 2 The king asked...

    2Samuel 15 -- Using “white fragility” to seize power

    1 In the course of time, Absalom provided himself with a chariot and horses and with fifty men to run ahead of him. Narcissists are very concerned with their image. This is like some rap star with a big posse. 2 He would get up early and stand by the side of the road leading to the city...

    2Samuel 14 The word of God is a mirror

    1 Joab son of Zeruiah knew that the king’s heart longed for Absalom. 2 So Joab sent someone to Tekoa and had a wise woman brought from there. He said to her, “Pretend you are in mourning. Dress in mourning clothes, and don’t use any cosmetic lotions. Act like a woman who has spent many days...

    2Samuel 13 -- Calamity will come in your own household

    1 In the course of time, Amnon son of David fell in love with Tamar, the beautiful sister of Absalom son of David. When we see some ruler, some king, like David do the terrible thing he did and then seemingly get away with it we can get very angry. Instead we should have faith that God is...

    2Samuel 12 -- “I have sinned against the Lord”

    1 The Lord sent Nathan to David. When he came to him, he said, “There were two men in a certain town, one rich and the other poor. 2 The rich man had a very large number of sheep and cattle, 3 but the poor man had nothing except one little ewe lamb he had bought. He raised it, and it grew up...

    2Samuel 11 Andrew Cuomo and Bathsheba

    I am not comparing Andrew Cuomo to David, because David was a man of faith. What I am saying is that David’s sin here can be compared to any person in power and their sin. 1 In the spring, at the time when kings go off to war, David sent Joab out with the king’s men and the whole Israelite...
