Isaiah the Prophet

What the Prophets and the Lord say about Isaiah

In preparation for our upcoming webinar with Dr. Gileadi, I thought it would be appropriate to dust off my Isaiah studies a bit. If Isaiah is still a sealed book to you, I strongly recommend you devote the time to listen to Dr. Gileadi’s Analytical Commentary which he graciously allowed me to embed as chapter […]

Current World Events in Isaiah’s Prophetic Timeline

Years ago, Dr. Avraham Gileadi’s “Analytical Commentary on the Book of Isaiah” really opened my eyes to understanding the writings and prophecies of Isaiah. He has published numerous books and other content to continue teaching the critical words of this prophet, including tying themes together relevant to our spiritual growth, and current world events.

The Forgetting Curve in Scripture Study

How good is your memory? Do you have the scriptures memorized with a full understanding of the meaning of every scripture? Of course we don’t. The human brain has a limited capacity for recalling information. Student often cram before an exam (guilty), try to do their best, and then proceed to forget almost everything they […]

Mar 27

More and Less

Have you ever heard someone say something and thought, “that can’t be right,” but then later you determined it was correct? I hope we all have. It shows we can grow and refine our thinking. It’s actually critical for us that we can do this with the scriptures. Nobody masters the scriptures on a first […]

What's your Shem?

What’s your Shem?

While preparing a lesson that included Genesis 32, I again reviewed the story of Jacob’s encounter with the being that changes his name to Israel. I thought it was interesting that Jacob sends his family members over the brook and then an individual shows up who tests his strength all night long in some kind […]
