“Stay in the chariot” by “The Daily Encouraging Word”

“No one will be able to stand against you.” Jos 1:5 NIV Standing on the threshold of the Promised Land, Joshua realized there were seven nations and forty kings to be conquered before he could possess it. So God told him, “No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life…I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.” When you’re in God’s will the forces and resources of heaven are behind you, and that means you’ll ultimately win. It doesn’t mean you won’t have to fight, but it means you’ll win! The movie Ben Hur won more Academy Awards than any other movie in history. Charlton Heston, who played the hero in this movie, had to drive a chariot for his role. He was supposed to win the climactic chariot race, but there was a problem: He was having trouble learning to drive the chariot. He walked over to his director, William Wyler, and said, “Mr. Wyler, I can barely stay on the chariot. I can’t win this race.” Wyler looked at Heston and said, “Son, your job is to stay on the chariot; my job is to make sure you win.” Every time you head to the office, or walk into a pressure-packed meeting, or job interview, trust God. When you make that dreaded doctor’s appointment, or confront a friend who has done you wrong, trust God. Stay on the chariot. Don’t quit on God and don’t stop trusting in Him. Your job is to obey; His job is to make sure you win. And when you do your part, you can be sure that He will do His.

Bible Contradiction? How did Jesus respond when questioned by the high priest?

The Domain for Truth

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How did Jesus respond when questioned by the high priest?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

He did not answer directly.

But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest said to Him, “I adjure You by the living God, that You tell us whether You are the Christ, the Son of God.” 64 Jesus *said to him, “You have said it yourself; nevertheless I tell you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven.”” (Matthew 26:63-64)

And they all said, “Are You the Son of God, then?” And He said to them, “Yes, I am.”” (Luke 22:70)

He answered directly by saying, “I am.”

And Jesus said, “I am; and you shall see the Son of Man…

Review: Batman: White Knight

The Domain for Truth

A weekend leisure reading review…because sometimes Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading!

Sean Murphy.  Batman: White Knight. Burbank, CA: DC Comics, October 9th 2018. 232 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

I have been anticipating this story ever since I made my first or second visit to the comic bookstore and I overheard the clerk tell someone about this.  And it did not disappoint!  Which is why I gave this a five out of five.  This volume marks the debut of the publisher DC Comics’s new Black Label imprint which feature well known characters in DC universe in new stand-alone stories without necessarily continuity that affect the stories being told in the regular comics.  I love the originality of Batman: White Knight.  This work collects an eight issue miniseries in which the writer and artist Sean Murphy presents us a scenario of what would happen if…
