The Fifth Cup – The Cup Of Wrath, And God’s Chosen

The Bible Unveiled

The Bible tells us in Jeremiah 25 about the cup of wrath and GOD’s judgement. “For thus saith the LORD God of Israel unto me; Take the wine cup of this fury at my hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send thee, to drink it.And they shall drink, and be moved, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them.Then took I the cup at the LORD’S hand, and made all the nations to drink, unto whom the LORD had sent me:To wit, Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and the kings thereof, and the princes thereof, to make them a desolation, an astonishment, an hissing, and a curse; asit isthis day;Pharaoh king of Egypt, and his servants, and his princes, and all his people;And all the mingled people, and all the kings of the land of Uz.” –…

The Ministry Of Jesus Christ

The Bible Unveiled

When Jesus Christ came preaching to the world, He came with something other than what the world teaches us. He told a group of religious zealots, “Ye are of your father the devil and the lusts of your father ye will do… And because I tell you to the truth, ye believe me not.” After Peter tried rebuking the LORD, He stated, “Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.”

Man, that sounds pretty scary, being called Satan and that your father is the devil. Although, let’s take a moment and consider something. Why, in fact, did He say it to Peter? Why in the other verse that we looked at did He say, “Because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not?” What was it that the Messiah was…

The Gospel Of Repentance

The Bible Unveiled

Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. – Psalm 51:4. This may in fact be the most difficult post that I produce with the Lord by my side. It may even be my last, as I feel the tears currently welling up within my eyes. To know the Lord intimately, I am sure is probably the deepest desire of nearly every man’s heart. Although, to know the Lord, means to experience His pain, and to understand His suffering. Let us now look deeper into what it means to repent in the Bible.

All that the Father bestows upon us is a gift. All honor, glory, and praise belongs to Him alone. As I opened with Psalm 51, I will push forward with a single question. What is this great…

What Is Truth In The Bible

The Bible Unveiled

In the Bible, Pilate says to Jesus, what is truth? It must have been an interesting sight to see, being the Author of this world to hear those words. Unless the Author already knew what was going to happen. Hmm. Now that’s something to consider. In Luke chapter 9, we learn of a certain man that says to Jesus, “I will follow you wherever you go.” The Word in the Flesh turns to him and says, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of man has nowhere to lay his head.”

What could He possibly have meant by these words? Is there any way for us to gain understanding into what is being said? Yes there is. And the answers are in the Bible. Before we get deeper into the meaning, we first need to understand more about Jesus Christ. And nothing about the…

The End Is Come – Revelations Unbound: Escape The Matrix

The Bible Unveiled

How To Escape The Matrix: The LORD God is merciful to those who have a clean heart. God is the strength of my heart, though my flesh and my heart fail me. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom. “O God, why hast thou castusoff for ever?Whydoth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture? Remember thy congregation,whichthou hast purchased of old; the rod of thine inheritance,whichthou hast redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt. Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual desolations;evenallthatthe enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary. Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy congregations; they set up their ensignsforsigns.” – Psalm 74:1-4.

A manwas famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees. But now they break down the carved…

On This Labor Day – Do Something Great

The Bible Unveiled

We are reminded in Colossians 3, If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God – Colossians 3:1-3. As one who knows many perils in this world, it is easy to become distracted by the world around us; with work, family, appointments, the economy, and stress. Did I mention stress? There is one thing that the LORD does for us when we are founded upon the ROCK that is Christ. We are given His peace. Take some time this month and consider your role in the body.

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance:…

Jump Out Of The Frying Pan Into The Fire

The Bible Unveiled

Lift Up A Banner is proud to announce the upcoming release of a new featurette, Into The Fire: The Burning Bush – Where The Spirit Speaks. The short film is set to be released within the next 30 days and I hope that you will be submersed into the Word of God as never before. While many of us consider all of the events and uncertainty in the world, le us jump out of the frying pan and into the fire.

As this may sound confusing, let us consider Daniel 3. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego while operating in great faith, trusted the LORD to deliver them from Nebuchadnezzar because they chose not to bow themselves down to worship other gods or idols. As they were thrown into the exceedingly hot furnace, we read the following, ‘Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said…

The Wandering Meadow

The Bible Unveiled

At the precipice of eternity there was a wandering meadow. 

Though serene and placid, somehow unattainable.  

The vast distance I see, a settling conviction. 

Life’s token required; the balance unpaid. 

Wrinkled and scarred, how encumbered the cost. 

The choices were ours, and now almost lost. 

Lintels and doorposts, do you know of the towers?  

Have you carefully counted, and weighed out each measure? 

A tear for each penny, a year for each slice, 

Our life is required, the fulfillment of price. 

“He that forsaketh not all that he hath, cannot be my disciple.”

– Luke 14:33

He Is Alive, He Is Risen From The Grave

He is risen from the grave! Look, He is alive! This excellent news is much more welcome and reassuring than ever before after a year defined by so much agony and suffering. The tale of Passover begins with a subject that has recently affected many of us: death. And dying by crucifixion at Calvary, where Jesus […]

He Is Alive, He Is Risen From The Grave

The Tendency Of Modern Christianity

The Bible Unveiled

For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow. – Ecclesiastes 1:18

As I sit here staring at a computer screen and a blinking cursor trying to figure out how to convey the following message, I understand the vanity of man explained within the pages of Ecclesiastes. Honestly speaking, it is painful knowing some of the depths within the Word of God. In a world such as we live in today, all Christians are taught pretty much the same thing. Believe in any Jesus Christ and all is forgiven. Do you even know what you are forgiven for? Jesus said, “you shall know the truth, and the Truth shall make you free.” Pilate said to Jesus, “what is truth?”

Do you know the truth? Do you know what you have been made free from? Is to be made free, something that takes time as the…
