Last time we focused on the beauty of this Biblical site. It is close to the sea of Galilee. It is actually right on it. Peter and Andrew probably moved here from Bethsaida where it says they were born, to live and work right on the water. This is an unlikely place that the Messiah … More What Happens In Capernaum, Stays in Capernaum!
Before I went to Israel, Capernaum was merely a word on a page.

A quick apology. Some of you were looking for this yesterday. Life happens, no good excuse. Sorry for the delay. Thank you all for following along with me in Revelation. It is proving to be an exciting journey as I am learning some deep truths every week. I hope you all feel the same. Without … More Revelation E9, “Sexual Attack” 2:18-29
12 “And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write: ‘The words of him who has the sharp two-edged sword. 13 “‘I know where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is.
