People sometimes have the idea that the Bible is a difficult book to read, but most of it really isn’t difficult. The Bible is an amazing book that reveals who God is and tells us the highlights of God’s history with humanity. Much of the Bible is exciting, some of it is a bit dull, and some parts are horrifying, but all of it is enlightening, and it has a great ending that includes you. This video is a short introduction to what is in the Bible, along with an invitation to read the Bible with me on live stream.
Coronavirus is becoming a significant concern that is causing fear in many people. When something like this happens, people wonder why and sometimes falsely attribute natural disasters and epidemics to God. Is God responsible for Coronavirus? We can look at the life of Jesus to get the answer to this question. Jesus had one response to sickness: he cured it. We should consider God the healer of sickness, not the bringer of sickness. This video explores God’s work in the world and how it relates to Coronavirus and to your life.
Many people feel completely alone in this world. Even some people who are rich and famous and seem to be surrounded by people who adore them still feel lonely. In this video, I hope to help those who have felt in despair because of loneliness by sharing some words of truth from the Lord Jesus. The truth is that you are never alone.

Cain made an offering to God, but God favored his brother Abel’s offering. Cain killed Abel. Some people ask, “Why didn’t God accept Cain’s offering?” Cain’s offering was insufficient, just as your offering to God is insufficient. There is only one offering that God favors these days, and it is the offering of Jesus Christ on the cross. This video discusses how Abel represents Jesus Christ and his righteous offering on our behalf.
John the Baptist said, “I baptize you with water, but he [Jesus] will baptize you in the Holy Spirit.” What does it mean that Jesus will baptize us in the Holy Spirit? This topic causes a lot of confusion and controversy. In this video I hope to give you an understanding of the baptism in the Holy Spirit by answering these questions:
1- What is the baptism in the Holy Spirit?
2- Is the baptism in the Holy Spirit a one-time experience?
3- Is this an event you need to wait for like the disciples waited in Jerusalem? When does it happen?
4- What does it look like when someone is filled with the Spirit?
5- How do I know if I have the Holy Spirit?
6- Is there a difference between having the Holy Spirit and being filled with the Holy Spirit?
7- How do I know if I’ve been baptized the Holy Spirit?
Much of the misunderstanding comes from our modern understanding of word “baptism” as a formal religious event. To baptize just means to dunk. There isn’t just one type of baptism mentioned in the Bible. There are many baptisms. In addition to the Holy Spirit baptism, this video also explains the many types of baptisms mentioned in the Bible. Thanks for watching
The Bible teaches that men and women are equal- intellectually equal, morally equal, and with equal capacity for leadership. But there are a few difficult and perplexing passages of the New Testament that seem to contradict the rest of the Bible’s treatment of women. In this video, I will discuss one of those difficult passages: 1 Corinthians 14:34-35, and offer some possible explanations for these aberrant verses
