I Luz You and Almonds

This blog on the Luz bone was written around 2017 and shared on Grace in Torah. After closing my website Obadiah’s Cave, I am uploading many of these blogs that I feel have worth. I pray it blesses you. Have you ever pondered how all the graves will open? Not when, but how? Will we come up out of the sea—the earth—an urn? Even the … Continue reading I Luz You and Almonds

The Clocks Were Striking 13

The military has many cadences that are sung during marching, and When I was a younger girl around five or six years old, we sang a song in my Sunday School class called “I’m in the Lord’s Army.” Here are the beginning of the lyrics: “I may never march in the infantry.Ride in the cavalryShoot the artilleryI may never shoot for the enemy.But I’m in … Continue reading The Clocks Were Striking 13

The Rose of Rhoda

  Before we get to Rhoda, here is a little back story. James, John Mark’s brother, has just been decapitated or put to death by the sword. Now Peter is awaiting his execution. The season is Passover. On the very night when Herod was about to bring him (Peter) forward, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and guards in front of … Continue reading The Rose of Rhoda

Them Bones, Them Bones

A note to my readers: Obadiah’s Cave will be closing soon, and I will be moving many of these writings over to my Tekoa Manning site. The blog below was originally written in 2019 at Obadiah’s Cave. One of my favorite songs is by Jim Croce, “I got a Name.” When I was newly divorced, I would sing this song and think of my maiden … Continue reading Them Bones, Them Bones

Bewitching and Identity, Part 2

In part one, we looked at bewitching in the Body. I also discussed travel at the airport. I want to continue this theme as we look at other ways of being bewitched. Let’s start with popular airlines and see if we can explore more ways to fly the friendly skies.  Delta Air Lines—Delta means Born 4th—Comes from the Mississippi Delta region. Mississippi means “Father of … Continue reading Bewitching and Identity, Part 2

Have We Been Bedazzled or Bewitched? Part I

During the 1960s and ’70s, a show aired titled Bewitched. The show was about a married couple. Darrin is a mortal human; his wife, Samantha, is a witch with powers. She does not divulge to him about her witchcraft until their honeymoon night. At this point, she has already enticed him. Today witchcraft has become a booming business. But what about the Body of Messiah? … Continue reading Have We Been Bedazzled or Bewitched? Part I

Joseph’s 4 Coats and David’s 3 Anointing’s

I remember the day I lost my coat, or rather, had it taken from me. Like Joseph, I was falsely accused and ended up running from the ministry I was in. It was all part of the Father’s plan. About a year later, my husband would also retire his position as an associate pastor, and we both would go on a journey that looked nothing like … Continue reading Joseph’s 4 Coats and David’s 3 Anointing’s
