Who Knows?

Who Knows?

Throughout this book we have witnessed the tension between the fact that life is puzzling and life is precious. We are reminded of what we don’t know (vv. 2, 5, 6) and what we must know (v. 9b). The young and those who used to be young have the same responsibility—to use our days rejoicing in God and telling […]

In Flaming Fire, Inflicting Vengeance

In Flaming Fire, Inflicting Vengeance

The Lord Will Judge His People

The Lord Will Judge His People
