I never realized how much “linen” was mentioned in the Bible until I started my study on the book of Ezekiel. In a few places of the account, Ezekiel mentions “the man in linen clothing.” Not having the background knowledge of linen, it made no sense to me. And it just may make no sense...

God of Dead Bones

When Walls Come Tumbling Down

Lonely in the Ruins

When I think of loneliness in the ruins, the prodigal son immediately comes to mind. He had friends whilst he had money. Once he depleted his funds, they vanished. Except for the hogs, he was lonely in the hog pen, facing the ruins of choice and consequences. When Job was in the ruins of disease,... Continue Reading →
