God sovereignly determines the boundaries of nations, as well as their lifespan. Throughout history, the average lifespan of national empires has been approximately 250 years. From the Assyrian Empire to the Ottoman Empire, each appears to follow the same trend: 1) The Age of Pioneers, 2) The Age of Conquests, 3) The Age of Commerce, 4) The Age of Affluence, …

Psalm 78:4 says, “We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders he has done.” Only the most vile of men would resolve to hide the beauty of the Gospel from their own children. And yet, some parents hide the Gospel from their …

Contributor: Joel Webbon

The psalmist believes that God will continue to be good to Israel as a whole, but he is doubting whether or not God will be good to him personally. His doubt stems from his consistent experience of seeing wicked people around him prosper. In this particular psalm, the psalmist has reached a point where his doubt has fully developed into …

Moments before his execution, Polycarp famously said, “Eighty and six years have I served Him, and He never did me any injury: How then can I blaspheme my King and my Savior?” Psalm 71:5-17 says, “For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O Lord, from my youth.

Contributor: Joel Webbon

One genre in the book of Psalms is called “imprecatory psalms.” The word “imprecation” simply means “curse” or “judgment.” These psalms are often difficult for New Testament Christians to reconcile with the teaching of Jesus: “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you” (Luke 6:27-28). The key …

God is the “savior of all people” in the sense of physical preservation, but God is only the savior of “those who believe” in the spiritual and eternal sense (1 Timothy 4:10). God is the “common grace savior” of all, and God is the “special grace savior” of some (the elect). In other words, God cannot bless anyone apart from …

Some overly zealous Calvinists might object at this point by insisting that God is sovereign over …

According to Psalm 59, King Saul and his men were like starving, wild dogs that trap their prey right before tearing it to shreds. David’s own home had been surrounded by this bloodthirsty mob.
