Battle Fields and Harvest Fields

I once sat through a sermon where the preacher got the message of Joel 3:10 wrong. He taught Joel was telling “the Church” to change their farming tools into weapons of war.

Abraham: A Father Of Many Nations

And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. (Genesis 17:3-4) God promised Abraham that he would be the father of “many nations.” “Nations” is the Hebrew word “Goy.” Strong’s Concordance defines “Goy” as a “foreign […]
