Journal of a Jackal

April 25, 2013

The following is chapter 8 in the children’s series, If They Could Talk; the story of our redemption as it unfolds from Genesis to Revelation. This is the story of Moses as found in Exodus 1-40. My Friends, The family would multiply in a foreign land; generations stacked upon generations. Jacob’s sons had many sons, who in turn had many sons—they were called the children of Israel; they were called the Hebrews. I saw them for years firsthand. It is not everyday man enters my desert; let alone great numbers of them. They were an odd assortment, this group—ill prepared…

The Tale of a Rat

April 18, 2013

The following is chapter 7 in the children’s series, If They Could Talk; the story of our redemption as it unfolds from Genesis to Revelation. This is the story of Joseph as found in Genesis 37-50. My Friends, If a nation would come from the line of Abraham, someone needed to have many sons. That someone would be Jacob. He had twelve of them. I am a hearer of stories and keeper of secrets.

She was Rebekah, and she would give birth to the next child of promise—but twins were in her womb. Only minutes separated the boy twins but how different they would be. The eldest was Esau, a…

Brothers, pray for us

April 4, 2013

If Paul, Silas, and Timothy needed the prayer of the saints in 1 Thessalonians 5:25, surely your pastor needs your prayers as well. Paul closes this letter as he began with an emphasis on prayer. We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our prayers, remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thess. 1:2-3) He says in effect, “I prayed for you so you pray for me. Let’s pray for each other.” While Pastor Rich and his…

A Boar’s Witness

March 28, 2013

The following is chapter 5 in the children’s series, If They Could Talk; the story of our redemption as it unfolds from Genesis to Revelation. This is the story of Isaac as found in Genesis 22. My Friends, Animals talk more than you know. The human discussed more than any other was Abraham, and he would have a son. We animals wondered about the Creator’s promises to Abraham. The man was a century of years and his wife a decade less; so news of pregnancy and birth was no small matter. His name would be Isaac, and we knew he…
