I post papers I have written, some during my graduate and post-graduate studies, some in response to other papers, and some written for other purposes like Sunday school classes or Bible studies. I also post observations on whatever comes to my mind and videos from teaching sessions.
I just noticed the PPH sale, which includes my new book The Holy Spirit: A Commentary will expire in a few hours. If you’re interested, the hard cover is available for $20.39 instead of $23.99. Lots of other items are reduced as well.
Proverbs 11:1 (NKJV) — 1 Dishonest scales are an abomination to the Lord, But a just weight is His delight.
A false balance and a just weight. The prohibition against false or substandard weights and measures teaches honesty in all pursuits, and in ancient societies it was the foundation of economic soundness.
Proverbs 10:32 (NKJV) — 32 The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable, But the mouth of the wicked what is perverse.
Knowing what to say. Righteous persons know the right things to say at the right time. They will not have to regret what they have said. Wicked persons do not have the ability. They blunder on, speaking unacceptable and perverse things.
Today I received in the mail a copy of the 54 page Winter 2020-2021 Christmas Gift Guide from the Pentecostal Publishing house. I was grateful to discover on page 4 a full page advertisement for my newest book, The Holy Spirit: A Commentary.
In addition, two of my other recent books are offered: Reading Between the Lines: Discovering Christ in the Old Testament and Looking Forward: A Clear View of Biblical Prophecy.
I hope these books will be helpful to those who receive them as Christmas gifts this year. Discounts on products listed in this catalog are available, as can be seen below.
Proverbs 10:27 (NKJV) — 27 The fear of the Lord prolongs days, But the years of the wicked will be shortened.
Long life or short life? The life of those who fear the Lord may be prolonged because their fear of Him prevents them from doing harmful things that tend to shorten life. The years of the wicked may be shortened because, in their wickedness, they do risky things that tend to shorten life.
Proverbs 10:26 (NKJV) — 26 As vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes, So is the lazy man to those who send him.
Do not send a lazy person. Just as people are annoyed by smoke in their eyes or vinegar on their teeth, so those who use a lazy person will regret doing so. Things of importance should be entrusted only to those who are faithful. Faithfulness is demonstrated in small things.
Luke 16:10 (NKJV) — 10 He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much.
2 Timothy 2:2 (NKJV) — 2 And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.
