Israel was No Fluke
I'm a laid-back White Sox fan. All my life, I have had to deal with being out-numbered by Cubs fans. Both Sox and Cub fans have long dreamt of a City series, where the two teams are competing during the World Series. That could happen this year. Statistically speaking, we

Moses and the children of Israel on the banks of the Red Sea, mountains on both sides, the Rea Sea in the front, and the mighty Pharoah and his great army behind them. No where to hide, no where to run, they were sitting ducks. Yet, the Lord came through, He proved to all that He is ABLE. So
THE DAILY NEEDS OF ISRAEL IN THE WILDERNESS
The 40-year wilderness wandering by Moses and the Israelites must be one of the biggest miracles in the Bible, yet we take it for granted. Think about the metrics of their dire situation:
FOOD: God’s people had to be fed daily. Feeding 3 to 3 1/2
History of Israel stands as a witness...
About 300 years ago, the King of Sweden was having personal doubts about God’s existence and the Bible's divine nature. He called for Count Von Zinzendorf, who was the bishop of the Moravian Church, to provide evidence about God’s existence and Divine
Ephesians 2 verse 19, it says … “So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are citizens with the saints, and also members of the household of God”.

Like the children of Israel in today’s Bible reading, Hannah Hurnard, author of Hinds’ Feet on High Places, was once paralyzed by fear. Then she heard a sermon on scarecrows that challenged her to turn her fear into faith.
The preacher said, "A wise bird knows that a scarecrow is simply an

The tax farmers in Israel, here called tax-collectors, were somewhat different from IRS agents. They were more like Mafia enforcers, employing thugs to shake down local citizens and merchants. The Romans specified how much each tax man was supposed to pay them, and the architelōē or
