Would You Rather Be Run Over By Death, Or It’s Shadow?

November 14th, 2012

Alone amongst the deadA famous Bible teacher that lost his wife to cancer while she was in their thirties explains salvation and its relation to death to his daughter:

Barnhouse nodded and said, “Did you know that the truck of death ran over the Lord Jesus in order that only its shadow might run over us? Your mother has not been overrun by death, but by the shadow of death. That is nothing to fear.”

The Passion Review

March 15th, 2004

Well, I saw the passion this past Friday. Here are some random thoughts:

Is the Devil really a woman?
That was the first time I thought of Jesus being roughed up on the way to trial.
What was up with the kids that turned into evil beings chasing Judas?
and the evil looking child the Devil held while Jesus was being whipped.
Do you really think Jesus was corny enough to build a table for nowadays back then?
Where were Jesus other sibilings in the scene with Mary? Maybe they were out at the market.
Could you come away with a message other than– man, he was really beaten up?
Did Simon of Cyrene carry the cross the entire way behind Jesus (as the
Scripture says) or part of the way with Jesus (as in the movie).
Where was the Roman soldier who said “Truly, this man was the Son of God.”
Did the earthquake break the temple floor as well as rip the curtain?

So, what message did you get out of it?

Precious Saints

March 4th, 2004

I was told that last night a member of my church went home to be with the Lord.  He’d been fighting a physical problem for a while, and now he’s liberated and enjoying the presence of the saints.

It’s a hard thing for we that are left.  The man was well known in the church and was a prayer warrior as well as a good testimony.  His presence with us will be missed.
