Charles D. Alexander on the earth helping the woman

June 29, 2013 2 comments

Charles D. Alexander discussed the flood that the serpent cast out
of his mouth to carry away the woman, who represents the church, in his
commentary, Revelation
Spiritually Understood Part 16: The Woman In The Wilderness.

And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman,
that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth
helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the
flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

William D. Barrick on the church inheriting the promised land

May 19, 2012 Comments off

In Romans 8:32 Paul wrote: “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” But there is something that many Christians adamantly deny that God has ever given to the church: the land and mountains of Israel. Therefore, they implicitly reject the above statement of Paul; they do not believe it. Read more…

When Israel went out of Egypt: Psalm 114

March 2, 2012 4 comments

Psalm 114:1-2
When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.

The nation was peculiarly Jehovah’s dominion, for it was governed by a theocracy in which God alone was King. It was his domain in a sense in which the rest of the world was outside his kingdom.

On giants and grasshoppers

January 13, 2012 Comments off

In the account of the Israelites in the wilderness, ten of the twelve spies who surveyed the land for 40 days brought back an evil report, which prevailed over the report of Joshua and Caleb, who encouraged the people to trust God. The ten Israelite spies discounted the power of God to overcome the enemies. They were unwilling to trust something they could not see. They saw themselves as grasshoppers, in comparison to the people who occupied the land. Read more…

Israel’s population at the exodus

January 10, 2012 Comments off

Estimates of the number of Israelites who came out of Egypt during the exodus are based upon census records in the book of Numbers, in chapters 1 and 26. Many commentaries claim that the exodus involved an enormous number of people, perhaps two million. The traditional interpretation of these records has been challenged because the Hebrew word translated “thousand” is sometimes translated differently. [1] The same Hebrew word is also used to refer to a clan, family, troop, or divisions (אָ֫לֶפ eleph, Strong’s number 505 or 504). Read more…
