Mary and I have had several reach out to us this morning to see if we were OK after the terrible storms last night. We did have a funnel cloud go over the house, and it tore off a good number of shingles off the front and side of the home. We are both so grateful for God’s protection. We have not checked out ministry buildings yet, but this storm was closer to I-44, so they should not have been affected. (We will check on them later today.)
Month: December 2021
The Essenes are an overlooked element of the Second Temple Period by most believers today. Yet, there are strong connections with this Jewish group that had rejected the immorality they saw in Jerusalem and throughout Judea to form a settlement in the desert. However, the Dead Sea Scrolls has turned a spotlight on this book and the prophecies they had about the future.
Today is December 1, and our sabbatical during December begins. Mary and I will spend some much-needed time resting, praying, and in research during the month. I will also be working on my next book. Without the constant distractions of daily ministry, it will be easier to concentrate on the writing process. (I know Defender Publishing will be happy to see significant progress on this project.)
