The Significance of the Beard

The Significance of the Beard

Joseph Herrin (7-19-2000) Some may wonder why I would take the time to write about the beard. After all, isn’t wearing a beard, or not wearing one, just a matter of personal choice concerning grooming and appearance? This is the mindset of the Western world that many Christians find themselves in....

A Rockefeller Christmas

(12-08-2010) Wisdom - Rockefeller Center One can at times be helped to discern the origin and the hidden esoteric meaning of a symbol by looking at how those who are known workers of darkness employ them. The image I want to examine in this post is that of the Christmas tree. Hopefully, some...

Christmas Considerations

Joseph Herrin (12-15-2014) After posting the recent blog on the subject of the idolatrous origins of the Christmas holiday, I have had a number of responses. I thought it would be profitable to write something to post publicly to answer some of the common questions that arise whenever the subject...

Christmas and the Test of Truth

Christmas and the Test of Truth

Joseph Herrin (12-18-2013) Some of my earliest and fondest childhood memories were of Christmas. Each December my parents would go pick out a live Christmas tree and bring it home. I still remember the heavy metal stand, painted green. It had thumb screws on three sides of the base to tighten down...

The Divine Quest – Part 10

A Final Word In the pages of this book I have shared how my heavenly Father has wrought a number of tremendous deliverances in my life and that of my family. From healing my son of a hereditary bone disease that has no known cure, to healing my body from diabetes, to providing financially for us...

The Prayer of Faith Beginning at the wedding of Cana, the disciples of Christ had seen Him perform one miraculous work after another. He had turned the water into wine. He had healed the sick. He had cast out devils. He spoke with a wisdom that was divine in origin, and the disciples rightly...

Faith to Suffer The Spirit has told me to be gentle in writing this chapter, being very sensitive to my own weakness and frailty that has manifested when I have been brought to places of suffering for Christ. Like most other humans, I have been inclined to seek to avoid suffering if at all...

The Place of Peace Having read the previous chapter, you may have concluded that it looks like mankind, weak as we are, must always endure fear and anxiety, for this is our lot as long as we are clothed in this sinful, fallen flesh. It is true that there is great fear that is bound up in these...

Our Strength and Shield In the preceding chapters I shared some events in which the Spirit of God has called my family to step out in faith and to lean totally upon Him. Some who have read of the victories and miraculous provision we have seen in our lives as we looked to Him have thought that we...

Faith Comes by Hearing Perhaps the single greatest source of comfort that I have had as God’s Spirit has directed our family to an ever expanding walk of faith, has been found in dwelling upon the things God has spoken to us. The Spirit has directed us down paths that bring fear to the natural...

Sight, the Enemy of Faith The apostle Paul was, apart from Christ, possibly the greatest New Testament example of a man of faith that we have been given. His faith in the character of God allowed him to walk in many dangerous places, and to suffer many things for the name of Christ, and yet remain...

Faith’s First Failure The first occurrence of events, names and numbers in Scripture hold great significance, for they often establish a pattern or type for those things that follow. This is true when we look at the first sin which occurred in the Garden of Eden. The first sin was preceded by an...

Labor Outside the Home Although the Bible reveals that woman was created to be a helper for man, and her role in child bearing and homemaking is set forth as a pattern for the godly woman, there are occasions when Yahweh will direct a woman to labor outside the home. There is a tendency among...

Keepers at Home What is the mind of Christ regarding women being homemakers? Is it the will of God for Christian women to pursue careers outside of the home? Is there a norm, a standard role within the home that Yahweh has appointed for women who aspire to godliness? Are there exceptional cases...

The Worth of a Woman A considerable part of the backlash against the teaching of Yahweh’s role and purpose for women is that many people equate status in this world with a person’s value, or worth. Many women fear that, if they subject themselves to men, they will be viewed and treated as having a...

Dissolving the Marriage Partnership There is great power in words. George Orwell, in his classic book 1984, gives a chilling depiction of a government manipulating minds by exerting control over words spoken and written. Words give rise to ideas in the minds of men. By advocating that certain...

Casting Down Jezebel Yahweh has given to the body of Christ a pattern to follow when Jezebel seeks to assert herself and to rule in the midst of His people. The solution is to cast her down. Casting Down Jezebel Let us look once more at Jehu’s response to Jezebel. II Kings 9:30-33And when Jehu was...

Jezebel and Masculinity The most commonly recognized attribute of Jezebel today is her spirit of usurpation. To usurp means “to take a position of power or authority illegally or by force.” In the Old Testament we read of Jezebel taking the authority of her husband, the king of Israel, to herself,...

Jezebel and Sensuality It is fitting that a teaching on godly womanhood provide some instruction on the topic of a woman’s dress and external appearance. The Bible has a significant amount to say on the subject. Some years ago I was led to meditate upon the following questions: Seeing that...

Jezebel and Idolatry Writing about Jezebel may seem an odd way to begin a book on godly womanhood. In Jezebel is seen the antithesis of everything that Yahweh finds praiseworthy in a woman. Yahweh has chosen to teach us much through contrasts. He sets before His daughters the lives of the godly,...

Joseph and Kristin Well, here I am again. This is Joseph Herrin. I suppose I should tell you a little about my experience that is still ongoing. About 4 weeks ago I laid down to get some sleep. I didn't realize how much, or what kind of sleep I would get. I went to sleep for 4 days, and was only...

Update

Dear Brothers and Sisters,  I’m writing a quick update to let you know that for the past few weeks I was severely ill, but by Yah’s grace I am slowly recovering right now. It will be a little while before I am able to resume writing and managing my blog, but I greatly appreciate your prayers...
