The Untimeliness of God

Joseph Herrin (6-7-2000) This blog was written 24 years ago. I have still never experienced the Lord failing to come through for me. It has been prophesied by some in recent days that the Father is preparing a group of His children to be able to walk in tremendous callings in the days ahead. This...

The Triune God

This writing serves as an addendum to the writing “Yahweh, His Breath, and His Word” which was written to answer some questions concerning the concept of God being a trinity. Since writing that article I have had further correspondence, and encounters with teachings, that have centered upon this...

Yahweh, His Breath, and His Word

What I am going to share here has come as a Rhema word from God. I did not figure this out with my rational abilities, for in truth I have been completely stumped as I have tried to understand the Trinity. It was about twenty years ago that this revelation came to me. I could not conceive in my...

Should a Minister Be Paid?

Today I had a fellow brother in Christ write to me with some questions/comments on ministers salary. I told him I had written a blog on the subject about 20 years ago. I suggested to him that I may need to republish it. So here it is. Joseph Herrin (4-21-03)I have had a number of saints write to...

The Topic of Tattoos

Due to a couple of recent posts that negatively mentioned the trend of many Christians to tattoo their bodies, I have received a number of e-mails asking for greater clarification on this topic. I felt it would be helpful to share a couple of correspondences on this topic, that others might be...

The Problem of Independence

In much of the world today independence is seen as a virtue. We speak admiringly of someone being an independent thinker. Some forms of independence are good. For example, God would not have us to live our lives as the slaves to the opinions of other men. But one form of independence that is not...

The Power of God to Accomplish His Will

Many in the church, perhaps most, have come to the conclusion that the power of God is not really necessary. They are content to preach their messages and conduct their programs and make some mediocre impact upon the world around them. Yahweh, however, has much more planned in soon coming days,...

The Peril of Self-Pity

Self-pity is a trap that some of the greatest of saints have fallen into, and because of its effects upon them they became disqualified for further service and their mantles were given to others. Some of these saints endured far more than other men, and they were accounted faithful, righteous, and...

The Origin of Sin and Satan

Job 36:3I will fetch my knowledge from afar, and I will ascribe righteousness to my Maker. For some time God has been leading me to encounters with people who are teaching, or adhering to a specific doctrinal error that is extremely troubling to me. Perhaps you have encountered this teaching, or...

The Myth of an Inerrant Text

Biblical inerrancy means different things to different people. To some it means that the Scriptures as originally written by men inspired of the Holy Spirit were a perfect representation of the words of God. For some, though not all people, Biblical inerrancy also means that the Bible in its...

The Lion, the Bear, and Goliath

This teaching could actually have several names. It has much to do with God’s requirement for His children to walk in faith before Him. It has to do with His children entering into their inheritance. It has much to do with the character of the sons and daughters that God will grant unprecedented...

The Leavening of the Church

Today the church looks very much like the church that is to be when Christ is sent to gather up His loved ones for His great return. People may wonder why I say this. It is because the church is so mixed with good and evil, right and wrong, obedience and disobedience. Where do we read about the...

Me and the Cat

About 5 days ago I got myself a cat. Her name is Honey. Actually her name was Sol, but I did not think she looked much like the Sun. Maybe she doesn’t look like Honey either, but the name seems to fit her better. I got honey from a local animal shelter. There isn’t one in Montezuma where I live,...

The Hidden Kingdom

It is said that those who fail to study history are bound to ever repeat it. In this saying it is implied that it is the mistakes, errors and tragedies of the past that will be repeated by those who are ignorant of what has already transpired. Yet I think man’s problem is far more serious than one...

The Crucible of God

Ephesians 2:10 “For we are His workmanship (masterpiece) . . .” The heat is always the first thing that apprentices and master journeymen alike notice as they cross the threshold into the foundry. It is not a normal heat such as one encounters on a hot summer day. This heat is born of a multitude...

Strange Fire

This writing speaks of a matter that is critical for all believers to understand if they desire to attain to the fulness of the stature of Christ that Yahweh has set as the standard for all of His children. If any body of believers is to fulfill God’s plans and purposes for them, they must...

Some Uncommon Understandings of Familiar Scriptures

Following are some understandings of various Scriptures that I have come across in my studies, but which I have not included in any writings. I have heard none of these Scriptures expounded in this way from any pulpit, so I assume that most saints are unfamiliar with them in the way they will be...

Good-bye Champ

Champ I know that some of you have wanted to hear occasional updates on my dog, named Champ. He has been a good boy all the time I have had him, for the past 12 years. He had been getting older of late, I could tell by his coat. The outline of his backbone was showing up, but I could not tell any...

Transgenderism in the Church

Transgender is a word used quite a lot today. It is mainly used in reference to men who wish to be called women. Many abominations are attributable to this error. Yet, in the church today just as many errors can be attributed to women wishing to call themselves men. Indeed, when one takes the...

Reviling Authorities

Is it proper for an adult child to offer a rebuke to their parents when they perceive their parents to be in sin, or when they are making unwise decisions? Is it ever appropriate for a wife to contend with her husband when she believes he is walking in sin or error? Should those under the care of...

Propitiation and the Merciful Covering

In my studies I came across something interesting. When Yahweh instructed Moses to fashion the ark of the covenant, the instructions included the fashioning of the Mercy Seat. The word translated mercy seat comes from the Hebrew word Kaporet. Kaporet is derived from a root word meaning cover....

PRIMOGENITURE

Primogeniture: noun 1. The state of being the firstborn child. 2. A rule of inheritance by the firstborn child.Origin: Latin primogenitura, from primo ‘first’ - genitura ‘birth, begetting’. According to the Law of Primogeniture, the firstborn male is considered the heir of the father. The...

Nephilim

I was reading through some of my older writings today and I came across thiswriting from 2009. Although it is 15 years old, I found it interesting as I have been watching some videos on Giants on earth. Of course, I was looking for some videos that were largely Biblically based, and I would...

Minimalism

Please read this post even if the title does not immediately grab your interest. What is shared here is one of the most transformative messages of the Christian life, and one of the most universally neglected and rejected today. I came upon this foundational principle and doctrine of the Kingdom...
