Mark 2:18-20

All right, the days have come, the bridegroom has been taken away from us… The question is, are the children of the bridechamber doing any fasting?


Fasting is a Bible practice.

It is sanctioned & practiced both in the OT & the NT.

To be clear, fasting is going for a period of time without eating. That is why our morning meal is called breakfast – Literally, “break” “fast”.

And really that’s about the only fasting that most Christians do… They fast all night while they sleep.

Of course Jesus had more than this in mind when He said the children of the bridechamber would be fasting in the days when He was taken away.

A fuller definition of fasting, as found in Webster’s 1828 dictionary says that fasting is…

1. To abstain from food, beyond the usual time; to omit to take the usual meals, for a time; as, to fast a day or a week.
2. To abstain from food voluntarily, for the mortification of the body or appetites…

To mortify is to put to death… Continue reading

#063 Why Does God Allow Suffering?

Posted in That's In The Bible - Podcast on November 18, 2016 by thatsinthebible

All of us will go through physical pain, emotional pain, and heartaches, these are all things that even all the insurance in the world cannot shelter you from. Everyone goes through stages in which they ask God; “Why do You allow us to suffer?” If you have been saved for any length of time you know all too well that one of the most frequent questions you get asked is, “Why would such a loving and good God allow so many bad things to happen to people?” Let’s take a look at what God’s word says in regards to this very important and timely question.suffering63Right-Click Here To Download


• God created mankind and the Earth without pain, suffering, or death: Turn with me to (Genesis 1) To truly understand why God allows suffering, we have to start in the beginning, In Genesis Chapter 1 we have the account of God creating everything, and look what He says in regards to His creation: (Genesis 1:4, 12, 18, 21, 25, 31)—READ— God created a perfect place that was very good, there was no pain, no disease, no sickness, no sin, and no death. What an amazing place for Adam and Eve! It was a paradise! But we all know it didn’t stay that way. God warned Adam that if they disobeyed and ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil that they would surely die that day (Genesis 2:17). Now we all know what happens, Eve eats of the tree, and then gives to her husband Adam, and because they disobeyed God’s commandment they had to reap the payment that they were warned about. Adam and Eve spiritually died that day, and because of this: (Genesis 3:16-19) sin death, pain, and suffering came into this world (Romans 5:12-14)—READ—
• We need to understand that it was never God’s will, plan, or desire to have even an ounce of pain death or sorrow in our lives. Continue reading

The Whole Armour of God

Once you get saved you get thrust into the midst of a war that’s been raging since God kicked the devil out of heaven. Being saved you are now a soldier in a battle, and God admonishes you to be a good soldierII Tim. 2:3 says, “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.”

II Cor. 10:3-4 says, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: {4} (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)”  According to these verses we are not in a physical battle, but rather, a spiritual one.

I Tim. 6:12 further indicates this truth as it tells us to “Fight the good fight of faith.

This same truth is also evident in Ephesians 6:12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. There is an unseen spiritual battle that is being fought on a spiritual plane and not visible to human eyes.  The Bible pulls back the veil and makes us aware of this battle, at times giving us glimpses into its technical workings. See Daniel ch. 10 & Job ch. 1 & 2 for example. The Christian has an adversary.  Our adversary is the same adversary that God has.  Our adversary is the devil.  “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” (I Peter 5:8). Now, though he is a formidable foe, it should be noted that the devil can’t make you do anything.  You have a free will and you make your own choices.
