Jesus was offered in the land of Moriah and this was first predicted by type in Genesis 22. We'll discuss the debunking of those who claim this is an error and will confirm that, in fact, Jesus was offered on a mount in the land of Moriah.

The Gospel of the Kingdom - Message 74 - Words, Words, Words - Matthew 12:33-37. Addressing the Pharisees after their blaspheming of the Holy Spirit and their refusal to believe Jesus, He reveals the truth about who and what they are. Their words reveal their heart – their true self in the inner man. Matthew here includes a warning from Jesus for all of us. As Spurgeon put it, "Our works may be judged by our words." We will all give an account for every word at the Day of Judgment.
In Chapter 4 of his prophetic work, Hosea shifts his focus entirely from the unhappy marriage between Hosea and Gomer, to zeroing in on the relationship between God and Israel. Beginning in Chapter 4, the scene shifts from Hosea's home, to God's courts of justice, with the language becoming unmistakably judicial, as the Lord lays out (as though in a court of law) his many charges against His faithless people, Israel. In this sermon, "The Lord States His Case," Pastor Jesse Randolph provides a verse-by-verse exposition of the legal charges God levels against Israel in Hosea 4:1-19—which includes charges related to a careless people, corrupt priests, and compromised priorities.
This simple truth has some important implications upon our own daily witness and in dealing with other individual, including professing Christians who wittingly or unwittingly "utter lies". Many correctly see this in politicians, the news media and others "out there" in the world, but it's a real issue "in house" among believers.
A big part of good character is good common sense. Common sense is basically being sensitive toward others. It is being aware of the effects of our words and deeds on others BEFORE we say or do them. We are insensitive toward others because we do not love them and this is a mark of an unregenerate person. He that loveth not knoweth not God, for God is love. The lack of common sense reveals a mind that is lazy and a heart that simply cares more about self than others.
We have to be careful studying the scriptures, because what applies to one sometimes apply to all. When the Prophet here speaks to the women about living luxurious lives with ease, it also apllies to the men, city nation, and above all the Church. We are getting to be at ease, not carrying about the others or the condition the nation is in and is headed. Seems as the majority of Christians today are Laodiceans.
The propheyHere admonishes the women on their slothfulness, pleasure seeking, ease. They will face devastating consequences for this and a ironic twist to the outcomes. In the New Testament era this is frown upon by the preachers that are hirlings because they know women is the glue and attraction for holding their churches numbers high.
The sluggard does not make for a good friend, employee or church member. We look at some clarifications and then discuss the realities of the disappointment that awaits when we depend upon a sluggard and what that has to do with vinegar, teeth, smoke and the eyes.
Living by Faith - Lesson 12 - Works of the Law vs. Faith - Galatians 3:1-4. The Galatians believers had been bewitched - that is, duped by the Judaizers, partly because of their own mental laziness and careless thinking. They needed to be reminded that they had embraced the gospel of grace alone by faith alone in Christ alone. "A supplemented Christ is a supplanted Christ!" (Hendricksen)
