05.09 Numbers 17-18 Psalms 55 Isaiah 7 James 1 Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar. (Proverbs 30:5-6, NKJV) The word of God is pure. We need to consider it as such. Too often we see the Scriptures added to or subtracted from. It is sad. We must be diligent to keep them in our lives, families, and churches. Thank you for reading The Simple Christian Life. Please feel free to express your...Read More

05.08 Numbers 16 Psalms 52-54 Isaiah 6 Hebrews 13 “The Lord had no servants. He bossed no one around. He was the Lord, but He never took the tyrannical attitude towards anybody.” — A. W. Tozer “History will show that the church has prospered most when blessed with strong leaders and suffered the greatest decline when her leaders were weak and time serving. The sheep rarely go much farther than the shepherd.” — A. W. Tozer “God is more interested in what we are than in what we do. He looks for fruit; we try to produce works.” —...Read More
[wp_time_to_read] The book of Daniel was written a long time ago; it covers events that occurred between about 602 B.C. to approximately 530 B.C. In this period: Construction on the Acropolis began in Athens. Mayan civilization flourished in Mexico. Aesop wrote his fables. Both Confucius and Buddha lived. Greek art began to truly excel. The Greeks introduced the olive tree to Italy. The Phoenicians made the first known sea journey around Africa. The Book of Daniel has long a target of critics who doubt that the Daniel described in the book actually wrote the book, especially in light of the book’s incredible prophecies. The Book of Daniel claims to be written by Daniel himself, and the fact that it is written mostly in the third person does not contradict that claim. The author mostly speaks in the third person, except for Daniel 8:1, 9:2, 9:20, and 10:2, where he speaks in the I, Daniel form. However, it was customary for ancient writers to speak in the third person even when writing about themselves. The one Old Testament exception to this is the Book of Nehemiah, which is in the form of a personal diary. Even God switches between the grammatical first and third person when speaking of Himself. One can compare Exodus 20:2 (I am the LORD your God) and Exodus 20:7 (for the LORD will not hold him guiltless). The...Read More

Today’s Bible Verse & Christian Quote
Today’s Bible Verse:
Colossians 3:5-7; Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.
Today’s Christian Quote:
To gratify any sensual appetite is to give it the very food and nourishment by which it lives, thrives, and is active.” – Adam Clarke
