With Jesus as the final puzzle piece, how does it end?


Theme Scripture: Isaiah 5:20

For most of us it’s simple. God is good, Satan is evil. They fight and God wins. God destroys Satan and all evil with him. It is simple and reassuring until we think a little more deeply about it. Where did evil actually come from? If God created all things then He must have created evil – why would He do that? If God wins the battle between good and evil and then destroys it, would He be destroying one of His creations? If God truly is stronger than evil then we need to ask if God is even paying attention because one look around our world and it is obvious that evil is handily winning. So, are God and evil really a compatible pair – opposites that need each other to exist? Could God ever truly destroy it or is the destiny of our world and our universe to be subject to both God and evil? Why hasn't God destroyed evil?

While the philosophical approaches to these questions can be endless, let’s begin with a clear foundational statement that I believe sets the tone for reason. For any creature to have the ability of conscious thought and choice over mere instinct, the presence of the principle of evil must exist. Let’s look at two different examples of this thought. Start by looking at the biblical account of the first human beings. God clearly set this foundation of choice and the principle of evil in Eden. He placed “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” in the garden before Adam and Eve were even created. Their instructions were specific about not eating of that particular tree. God literally planted the principle of evil before them as a test of their obedience.

We know Satan was involved in the failure of that test and he is our second example. He, all by himself, was and is the prototype of conscious thought and choice going down a path of darkness – away from good and away from God. While we do not have any record of any tree planted by God for his testing and benefit, we do know that he was drawn to power. Now, power in and of itself is not necessarily bad, but power used to usurp authority not your own is all wrong. Our conclusion here is that the principle of evil has always existed as a mere principle, and as such has not been corrupting. The devastation begins once that principle is put into practice. Just look around and the results are obvious.

Check out our March 12, 2018 podcast, “Are God and Evil Meant to Coexist?” See for yourself how and why evil went from mere principle to common practice. Observe the pathway that evil takes as it continues to grow, develop and wreak havoc on our world. Better yet, absorb the intricate and long-term plan that God has always had in place for the purpose of utterly defeating Satan and the evil of his regime. This podcast can truly put to rest the nagging question of the role that evil plays in God’s just and merciful design and his marked destiny for the human race.

Ep.: Why did God initiate war in the Old Testament?

The idea that God initiated war in the Old Testament, especially with all its gore and sometimes even the slaughter of innocent women and children is a difficult concept for Christians to grasp. After all, Jesus taught us that God is love and that we are to love even our enemies. Why, then, did God himself initiate war? 

Sin entered the world when Adam disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden. God cursed Adam and his progeny with pain, suffering and death. Over time the course of sin led humankind to become more and more depraved. But God had a plan in place since the foundation of the earth (Revelation 13:8) that would result in man’s redemption through a redeemer. 

“For since death came through a human being, the resurrection of the dead has also come through a human being; for as all die in Adam, so all will be made alive in Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:21- 22 

That redeemer, Jesus Christ, would come from a people especially chosen by God—the Jewish race. Therefore, God gave the Jews the Law to keep them pure, thus setting them apart from the pagan nations that surrounded them. The Law Covenant not only defined what sin was, but also set in place a means of punishment for those who disobeyed. 

Because God knew the weaknesses of the fallen flesh, He needed to keep the toxic influences of other peoples from the Jews. God said to Moses, “In the cities of the nations the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. . . . Otherwise, they will teach you to follow all the detestable things they do in worshipping their gods, and you will sin against the LORD your God.” (Deuteronomy 20:16, 18) This scripture tells us why God initiated war against the nations that surrounded the Jewish nation. 

It is interesting to note that war not initiated by God was considered a flagrant violation of the covenant between Israel and God and was usually punished by God employing a foreign nation as his instrument of war against Israel (Isaiah 10:5-6). Israel could not be successful in battle without the approval and participation of God. God wanted to demonstrate to the Jews that the battle was his, not theirs. 

“Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” 2 Chronicles 20:15

Since the LORD was the strength of Israel, any initiative on the part of her leaders to participate in wars, relying on their own strength was doomed to failure and the wrath of the LORD. (See Isaiah 30:1-5; 31:1, 3; Amos 2:13-16.) 

If redemption were not possible for all those who died in wars that were initiated by God, we, indeed, would be hard-pressed to defend or even understand God’s actions. But we know that these people will be recovered in the Millennial Age and have an opportunity to learn righteousness and have everlasting life on earth. God’s action on them was in no way a final judgment. 

Why did God initiate war in the Old Testament? He did it to demonstrate to the Jews how the Law that defined sin was to be used in a sinful world where wars exist. God, in his wisdom, allowed the course of sin to continue so that His chosen people would learn through experience that evil and death are the results of a sinful life. God also initiated war to keep the Jewish nation pure from the influences of the pagan people that surrounded them. Lastly, God initiated war to teach the Jews that the battles were His and not theirs to determine. 

If God had not planned to send his only begotten Son as a Ransom, all humanity would have been doomed to die with no chance of redemption. But, Jesus paid that price at Calvary, assuring us that every person who has ever lived will have the opportunity for life either in heaven or on earth. Knowing that God had a well-devised and thought out plan in place since the foundation of the earth helps us to understand why He would sometimes order the extermination of every man, woman and child. We can be comforted believing that all those who died will come forth from their graves and have an opportunity for everlasting life in the Millennial Age. 

To learn more about God’s actions in the Old Testament listen to, “Why Do Some Think God is a Monster?”

What can we learn from the brutal sieges of ancient warfare?


[00:30:25]
How did one unnamed woman disarm a monstrous siege?


[00:45:12]
How do we protect against Satan laying siege to our own minds and breaking through our godly defenses?


Theme Scripture: 2 Samuel 20:15

As Christians, we are constantly faced with the challenge of doing the right thing in a sinful world. We are bombarded with input and suggestions that can easily cloud the simplicity of what the right thing is. Once we get the right thing in focus, the next challenge is to do that right thing the right way. Often, the right way is NOT our natural or preferred approach. The problem? Our handling of what is right in God’s eyes is ALWAYS subject to Satan’s attacks. These attacks can come from external forces, but often his most destructive attacks come from our own fallen thinking and desires. Essentially, Satan can effectively lay siege to our spiritual lives by opening doors to try and accomplish spiritually right things in a humanly sinful way. We need a battle plan to defend against Satan!

Continue Reading

Beware the siege!

In the ancient days of Scripture, laying siege to a city was a long-term conquering strategy against those who lived inside the city walls. This was a loathsome way to be attacked, as it induced isolation and fear. Starvation and loss of life were also expected outcomes from a siege, and not just for those inside the walls. Add in the ramps, tunnels and catapults and you have the makings of what could be a years-long military entanglement. None of this was good.

In an obscure Old Testament account, the peaceful and faithful Jewish city of Abel was besieged by Joab, commander of King David’s own army. The king commanded him to chase down a treasonous man who ended up hiding in the city of Abel. This ill-advised siege was set to produce untold damage destruction and death upon countless innocent people. Had it not been for an unnamed and wise woman stepping in, this story would have ended in tragedy. So, what does all of this have to do with defending against Satan’s attacks? Plenty!

Check out our August 2, 2021 podcast, “What’s My Battle Plan to Defend Against Satan’s Attacks?” for details. We look at this amazing true story and put its profound lessons into an allegory format. What if the main characters and the city in this account could represent our own personal struggles to be faithful to our Christian calling? What if there was a message here for us regarding the quiet yet potent power of God’s spirit in our lives?

Beware attacks from  Satan!

As Christians, we are always striving to be on the side of righteousness in God’s service. While the desire to serve and protect our spiritual calling is vital, it is even more vital to observe how we do this. We often talk about the importance of doing the right things. Unfortunately, we less often focus on doing those right things the right way. Satan is a formidable foe and he WILL use our own self-will and ego to undermine our focus on living a sacrificial Christian life. Join us for this unique story and learn to defend against pursuing God’s will our own way.

Ep.1186: Are We Living in the “End Times”?

The Bible talks about a time of trouble never before seen. Are we near that time?


[00:32:45]
What specific and unmistakable signs does the Bible give us to show we are in the End Times?


[00:45:26]
Is it possible that world-changing blessings occur during the End Times as well?


Theme Scripture: Daniel 12:1

People believe in the Bible to varying degrees. Some of us see it as the unerring word of God while others see it as an account of history, wisdom and standards. Still others see it as sprinkled with both wisdom and folly. Then we have those who see no value in it at all. For the most part, one of the common threads that all who know something about the Bible seem to share is the belief that it speaks of God’s wrath and apocalyptic events. While these are true perceptions of the Bible, they are by no means a complete picture. How can we know what the "End Times” are and when they start? What kinds of things happen during these times? Is there any tangible proof of the End Times that can establish the credibility of Bible prophecy to the skeptic? Where do we start with all of this?

Continue Reading

We live in the End Times

We know this because of prophecies from the Bible. Now, many would say that Bible prophecy can be easily misinterpreted. It does often speak in symbolic terms about some nebulous future time and proclaims some event that is hard to understand. So, we can see where such skepticism comes from.  Yet, we know that Bible prophecy is sound. What if there were some prophecies that were able to be understood because the facts of our day support them? What if these prophecies could be accepted not because they are from the Bible, but because they are obvious and in plain sight?

There are such prophecies!

In the 12th chapter of Daniel, he is prophesying about the End Times.  We all know that according to the Bible, the End Times are a time of significant change. Daniel’s prophecy includes the statement that humanity will be “running to and fro and knowledge will be increased.”

These ideas can be perceived as over-generalized conjecture until we look at the facts. In his book Critical Path, (1982) Buckminster Fuller coined the phrase “Knowledge Doubling Curve.” He reported that worldwide knowledge was thought to have doubled once every century until 1900. By the end of World War II, it was thought to be doubling every 25 years. Now it is thought to double every 13 months! Surely, anyone viewing these facts must admit we live in a unique time of increasing knowledge never before experienced!

As dramatic as this factual confirmation of prophecy is, there is even stronger and more compelling evidence that biblically proves where we are in the stream of time. Check out our July 12, 2021 podcast, “Are We Living in the 'End Times'?" for more. We lay out numerous details of the Daniel 12 prophecy already mentioned. We carefully examine another crystal clear and often-repeated biblical prophecy that points to the present time as well. Ours is a remarkable time in history as we witness Bible prophecy unfolding. Join us and see for yourself what historical specifics we should know about and what current events we should be watching.

Ep.1146: Can Biblical Strategies Resolve Serious Conflicts? (Part II)

Identifying and applying biblical conflict resolution solutions

If you do not have a password, please subscribe to our FREE Premium Content for the Full Edition version of CQ Rewind. The welcome message will contain your password, and a reminder will be sent each week when the CQ Rewind is available online for you to read, print, or download.

What should we do when we want to start blaming the other person?


[00:28:11]
What should we do when angry emotions are starting to overtake us?


[00:52:01]
How do we stop being so defensive and even revengeful during a conflict?


Theme Scripture: James 4:1

Conflict is everywhere! This is not necessarily a bad thing, as proper conflict management at every phase of our lives provides some of life’s most fertile growth experiences. The problem is, we are NOT taught how to manage our conflicts. In the first of our 2-part series, we listed and discussed the Five Degenerating Stages of Conflict. We saw plain evidence that we generally approach our conflicts with personal opinions, preferences, passion and a desire to win. What tends to get overlooked are the solid, emotionless principles of truth and righteousness. If you look at the social and political conflicts in our world, you will see the sad and chaotic results of such an approach. So, how do we turn the tables? As Christians, how do we rise above the fray and manage the conflicts before us with godliness and grace while firmly standing for what is right? The answers are straightforward, sound and scriptural!

Continue Reading

The first part of this series focused on the problem of conflict. It outlined in detail how easily and destructively conflicts generally end up as private wars with no resolution in sight. In this second part, we focused on keeping that degrading process from developing. Curtailing the dismantling of relationships resulting from out of control conflicts is, to say the least, a daunting and extreme mission.  For a Christian, success is only possible if we read, adopt and follow the powerful biblical strategies we have at our fingertips. This may sound easy, but it’s not.

Where do we start?

While the Bible contains answers for a world full of problems, it is not written like a self-help book. You can’t just go to the Table of Contents and look up the “Conflict Resolution” chapter. Our approach needs to have two parts:

  1.  We need to understand what the real problem is that we are trying to solve. To proactively solve the conflicts we may have with others, our focus should be on ourselves and not the conflict. There is a big question we must answer before applying any biblical strategies. “Am I willing to sell out to biblical principles above my own feelings and opinions for the sake of resolution?” If we are determined to adopt a yes answer, the scriptures are poised to fill in the strategy.  This brings us to the second part of our approach...
  2. Open the book!

A powerful set of Scriptures to guide us through conflict resolution is found in James 4:7-10. Merely reading these texts probably won’t do much for us. Instead, we need to absorb their wisdom within the context of our conflicts. Check out our October 5, 2020 podcast, “Can Biblical Strategies Resolve Serious Conflicts? Part II” for more. We review the naturally-degenerating stages of conflict and examine scriptural principles to apply at each and every stage. We ask the hard questions and find additional biblical principles to answer them. Biblical strategies CAN resolve serious conflicts.  The only question is, how willing are we to find and apply them?

[01:02:38]
How is Peter, with so many flaws, a good example of a sound mind?


Theme Scripture: 2 Timothy 1:7

Have you ever thought about what it means to be given "the spirit of power and love and sound mind" as stated in 2 Timothy 1:7?  With this spirit of power, shouldn't all enemies of God cower before us as we call them out for what they are?  With this spirit of love, shouldn't we be able to bridge any gap and overcome any difference among us?  With this spirit of a sound mind, which means sound judgment or discipline, shouldn't we be able to see through the traps of the adversary and the cunning selfishness of our own minds and always think, speak and act in exact accordance with God’s will?  If it were only that easy!  The fact is, we need to develop and engage these things as tools in our everyday fight gainst all things godless.  Instead of imagining ourselves as superhero avengers who have the power to call out evil, let us instead see ourselves as blessed to be learning how to use what God has given!

To understand what a sound Christian mind actually is, we first need to know what it replaces.  When the Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy about this, he told him that "God has not given us the spirit of cowardice but instead he has given us the spirit of power, love and a sound mind."  Was Paul saying Timothy was a coward?   On the contrary, he was preparing Timothy for the incredible hardships that were coming.  Roman persecution of Christianity was increasing and the desolation of Jerusalem was only a few years away.  Paul himself was currently imprisoned and would soon be executed.  He was encouraging his spiritual son, Timothy, to step up in the face of all these deep testing experiences and stand firm for the truth of the Gospel.  The message was to not cower as time presented greater challenges but to rely firmly upon God’s power and influence to carry him through.

It is fascinating to observe the respect given to the “spirit of cowardice.”  Paul understood the death grip fear could hold upon one who is taxed beyond their physical and emotional strength.  He offered a solution for overcoming this overwhelming tide, and it came in three phases.  The first phase was to adopt and accept what Paul called “the spirit of power.”  This power  was not attainable by personal exercise, taking supplements or by force of human will and discipline.  Rather, this power was a result of the miraculous indwelling of God’s own Spirit – His power and influence - within the personal life of any called-out Christian.  Paul’s message was simple...use this power as your foundation, and you can now begin the process of submerging and diffusing cowardice.

Check out our April 8, 2019 podcast, “Do I Have a Sound Christian Mind?” for more.  Understanding and applying this “spirit of power” is just the beginning.  We connect the necessary dots to get to the victorious point of understanding and attaining the spirit of a sound Christian mind.  Applying this disciplined Christian mind will absolutely change everything!

If there is still some good, are we in the end times?


[00:35:30]
Does the wickedness in the Bible mirror our world today?


[00:54:25]
If we run, where do we hide?


[01:11:54]
What should we watch out for?


Theme Scripture: Psalm 10:11

We often look around at the world and think about how horrible things are.  Being wicked is in vogue. Yet, more people have more advantages now than at any time in history.  The average life expectancy throughout the world has dramatically increased, and in most countries technology is in the hands of the average person.  All of this as the desire to live in a God-honoring Christian way has severely decreased, especially in developed countries.  If so many good potentials for the human race exist and Christianity is on a downward spiral, then is it logical to conclude that life without God and Jesus is better for humanity?  I’ll bet you didn’t expect that question!

Continue Reading

Let’s observe a world with minimal Christian influence - which in reality is our world right here and right now. This world is technologically advanced to the point of more than half of every man woman and child who are alive right now have internet access. With that incredible positive we are obliged to view its compensating negative factor. This access opens a door to such things as pornography. The world’s largest porn site had enough visits in 2017 to average out to 3.75 visits for every human being alive today – and that is just one site! Now let’s consider the great freedom of thought and expression that we have today. Young people are daily proclaiming their detachment from old ways and old labels, creating their own unique path to the future. All this sounds great until you look at the alarming rise in mental illness among all age groups but especially among young people.

So, is the world better off or worse off? Though one could argue for both sides, the fact is because of technology, darkness in multiple forms has stealthily and rapidly crept into countless households and lives. At the same time, parenting has morphed into an exercise in observation rather than a system of guidance and discipline. We are surrounded with world-reshaping changes which bring life-disrupting doubts. Does this mean the wicked are winning?

Here is the point: The Bible predicted this. When we typically look at Scriptures, we easily notice and often talk about the prophecies concerning Armageddon and world-shaking trouble. What we don’t generally see is the approach that such trouble takes. The Christian “default” interpretation for these issues usually lies in the thought of nation fighting against nation. While we believe this is a correct understanding, it still does not paint the whole picture of what will drive this present day social order to the brink.

Check out our January 7, 2019 podcast, “Are the Wicked Winning?” to see the rest of the story. We trace the pathway wickedness has taken through the lens of biblical prophecy and connect it to what is scripturally called “The time of the end.” What we find is both staggering and revealing as the Bible connects, explains and concludes not only what is happening in the world around us now but why it is happening. Are the wicked winning? Not really. Tune in and see why!

Israel is a country that only covers about 21,000 square kilometers (not even in the top 150 countries – about the size of New Jersey) and houses about 8.3 million people (which figures to be about .11% of the world’s population).  Yet for its insignificance, this land is always in the news and always seems to be in trouble.  Why are there so many questions about and issues with this tiny nation?  Are they really occupying land that is not theirs?  Are they really mean and over-the-top harsh with their neighbors, or are there important details about the constant conflicts we are always missing?  Should we just be fed up with what they do and what they stand for, or should we be respectfully looking up to Israel for what they do and what they stand for?

VIDEO: Is Israel a Thorn in the Side of the World?

The Old Testament serves as a factual and archeological source for tracing Israel’s past and how they developed as a nation. The 12 sons of Jacob (whose name was changed to Israel) were the beginnings of the nation and they moved into the land that would also bear that same name. Why are there so many questions about and issues with this tiny nation? Are they really occupying land that is not theirs? Is Israel really mean and over-the-top harsh with their neighbors, or are there important details about the constant conflicts that we are always missing? Watch this short vlog then listen to the full podcast of the same name.

[01:08:58]
With Jesus as the final puzzle piece, how does it end?


Theme Scripture: Isaiah 5:20

For most of us it’s simple. God is good, Satan is evil. They fight and God wins. God destroys Satan and all evil with him. It is simple and reassuring until we think a little more deeply about it. Where did evil actually come from? If God created all things then He must have created evil – why would He do that? If God wins the battle between good and evil and then destroys it, would He be destroying one of His creations? If God truly is stronger than evil then we need to ask if God is even paying attention because one look around our world and it is obvious that evil is handily winning. So, are God and evil really a compatible pair – opposites that need each other to exist? Could God ever truly destroy it or is the destiny of our world and our universe to be subject to both God and evil? Why hasn't God destroyed evil?

Continue Reading

While the philosophical approaches to these questions can be endless, let’s begin with a clear foundational statement that I believe sets the tone for reason. For any creature to have the ability of conscious thought and choice over mere instinct, the presence of the principle of evil must exist. Let’s look at two different examples of this thought. Start by looking at the biblical account of the first human beings. God clearly set this foundation of choice and the principle of evil in Eden. He placed “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” in the garden before Adam and Eve were even created. Their instructions were specific about not eating of that particular tree. God literally planted the principle of evil before them as a test of their obedience.

We know Satan was involved in the failure of that test and he is our second example. He, all by himself, was and is the prototype of conscious thought and choice going down a path of darkness – away from good and away from God. While we do not have any record of any tree planted by God for his testing and benefit, we do know that he was drawn to power. Now, power in and of itself is not necessarily bad, but power used to usurp authority not your own is all wrong. Our conclusion here is that the principle of evil has always existed as a mere principle, and as such has not been corrupting. The devastation begins once that principle is put into practice. Just look around and the results are obvious.

Check out our March 12, 2018 podcast, “Are God and Evil Meant to Coexist?” See for yourself how and why evil went from mere principle to common practice. Observe the pathway that evil takes as it continues to grow, develop and wreak havoc on our world. Better yet, absorb the intricate and long-term plan that God has always had in place for the purpose of utterly defeating Satan and the evil of his regime. This podcast can truly put to rest the nagging question of the role that evil plays in God’s just and merciful design and his marked destiny for the human race.

The Bible often tells us what is going to happen before it happens. Sometimes its prophecies are very specific and sometimes they are shrouded in symbols, but in all cases they tell us about the future. So, what is the future? Our world has come to a point where it has the capacity to destroy all living things. What is going to happen with this great power? There are several Bible prophecies that can be interpreted to not only verify this destruction but seem to graphically describe it as well! Are we headed for nuclear holocaust? Does the Bible verify such a horrible end? Is this all in God’s plan?

Theme Scripture: Isaiah 45:7; 1 John 4:8

In Part I, we began an important discussion regarding God and His treatment of humanity in the Old and New Testaments. There are many who say that the warlike and nationalistic activities of the God of the Old Testament cannot possibly be the same as the God of mercy love and salvation of the New Testament. So, how do we explain the obvious shift in focus? Stay with us!
