Our video Bible Class (just over 4 years old now) is currently focusing on the Book of Nehemiah. We are approaching Chapter 3 of the Memoirs of Nehemiah. There the 10 Gaes of Jerusalem are delineated … and as I teach the Chapter a spiritual truth (or principle) will be highlighted for each of those […]
In our video Bible Classes we have concluded our journey through the Epistles of Peter. Now we begin a new adventure! Nehemiah has 13 chapters (a total of 406 verses) waiting to be explored! Come study with us … — Dr. Mike Bagwell .
Week after week, Glory to God, we have the privilege of preaching in Revival Services. Verse-by-Verse Bible preaching in fact! God always honors His Word! “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall […]
Most of my time and effort go into our Revival Meetings these days. Our “Calendar” appears here on the Website. The Tab is at the top of the Home Page. The rest of the time is invested in our video Bible Studies. We are currently concentrating on the Epistle of 2nd Peter. Watch one and […]
Though a strange tactic, I begin the lesson with a quote from the Apostle Paul. ” “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.” Romans 16:17 Clearly, this is a warning! But Peter has a whole Chapter of such admonition, […]
While critics of the Bible try to point to its so-called inconsistencies and contradictions, I find it to be an absolutely Perfect Book! One of their many accusations deals with the “Call Narratives” in the New Testament. And Peter’s history is no exception! (He is the writer who reminds us that the enemies “twist” God’s […]
Once the Holy Spirit came, just as Jesus had previously promised, everything concerning our Lord’s followers was different. I shall use Peter as the “example” for such a bold statement. Peter who often spoke rashly, after Pentecost, became rather eloquent! As if Someone (the Holy Spirit) outside himself had taken control of his once stammering […]
I owe the “seed thought” for this little devotional to an old Scottish Preacher named George Morrison. It focuses on an incident in the life of the Apostle Peter, in his relationship to our Lord Jesus Christ. Our Saviour had, earlier in the day, miraculously fed 5,000 men, not counting their families! Subsequently Jesus sent […]
That’s what we called them, anyway, when we were young. Little flying creatures with “tail-lights.” Here are a few interesting facts about these little bugs, miraculous creations of our great God … Their flashing “lights” are used to send signals, messages actually! To ward off an enemy. To attract a mate. Even to mark off […]
Ocean creatures never before seen by mankind? That live 35,000+ feet below the surface of the sea? In total darkness? Where the weight of the water alone (the sheer pressure) would crush any human in a few seconds? Little fish with no eyes! Why would they need any, existing in an environment where not a […]
He is a little animal God created way back in Genesis chapter 1. He is a considered a mammal and can weigh as little as 2 pounds but as much as 36 pounds. (Different species!) His long claws are virtually excavation tools. With amazing speed he can “cover himself” in dirt, hiding from a predator! […]
Its name, “jaguar,” is believed to derive from the vocabulary of an ancient Brazilian tribe. It is thought to mean “wild beast that overcomes its prey at a bound.” The jaguar is the third largest “cat” in the world, behind the tiger and the lion, in that order. (It can weigh up to 400 pounds!) […]
A little animal that “plays?” Strange as that fact might sound, YES INDEED! Otters, our focus for today, come in 13 species, all created by our Wise God according to Scripture. They are sea creatures, though some live in freshwater. (That “species” thing!) They are found ranging in size from 2 to 5 feet in […]
No, God did NOT create the character trait known as sloth! In fact, that is a sin, laziness! But God did create the animals that man has named the “sloth.” This little mammal lives in the rain forests of Central and South America. With their long hair and shaggy fur, they resemble monkeys. They are […]
A fish that knows “archery?” It seems so. A God given talent, an acquired ability extended to a little sea creature! Remember a Line from Job 12:8 … “The fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee.” This little fellow is only 5-6 inches long, and when near shore can play the part of a […]
His (or her) name derives from two Latin words. “Porcus” means “pig” in that ancient tongue. And “spine” means “thorn!” An animal that has a pig-like shape and can wound an attacker with his thorns, spears, quills! The little creature has around 30,00 of those sharp things, weapons! (And contrary to popular opinion, he cannot […]
“And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind …” Genesis 1:25 Yes, God created even gorillas! An adult male can reach a height of nearly 6 feet! And he is apt to weigh up to 450 pounds! Their lifespans are surprising too. In captivity up to 60 […]
I have always been amazed at the fact that God, when responding to Job’s multi-month (or longer) sufferings, never gave the godly old Patriarch an explanation! God merely gave Job a verbal tour of His “Creation,” especially the animals! As if considering God’s Power and Glory as seen via His “works” might cause a lot […]
I give up! I think I am in a Line of Thought that is quite “over my head!” I mean the SOUL SUFFERINGS of Jesus on the Cross. Yet the Subject interests me immensely! And Jesus invited such Inquiry, I believe. Specifically, in the Garden of Gethsemane … “Then saith He unto them, My soul […]
When I decided to share a few thoughts about our Lord’s suffering on Calvary, in addition to His physical trauma and pain … I thought the Old Testament would be the “seedbed” of my thoughts. But I’m learning that the New Testament too focuses on this part of Jesus’ Cross! Here’s part of what I […]
I nearly “missed” this great Isaiah Verse! It too concerns the “soul suffering” of Jesus on the Cross. It’s the 10th Verse of Isaiah’s 53 chapter we need to notice … “Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, […]
Let me take you to Isaiah 53 today! It is one of the greatest Chapters in the Bible previewing God’s great Plan of Salvation. There, tucked away in one little Verse, we find these Words, this unfathomable Fact … “He hath poured out his soul unto death.” This is Jesus of Whom the Prophet writes. […]
Any Bible student knows that one picture of our Lord’s Ordeal on the Cross is that of a drowning man. I will give one example … “Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps. Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, and thou hast afflicted me with all thy waves. Selah.” […]
As Jesus hung on the Cross, per Psalm 22 specifically, He was confronted by many enemies. Both physical, those inflicting pain on His sinless human body … but also spiritual enemies, those torturing Him in His Spotless Soul, in His very Spirit! He depicts the latter group in four ways! Spiritual antagonists … “Deliver my […]
I am still in Psalm 22, the Bible Chapter that most clearly describes a man being crucified. Where Jesus in Verse 6 succinctly says, “But I am a worm, and no man.” Now does that sound like physical agony to you? I suggest not. (Though in no way am I minimizing Jesus’ bodily pain on […]
