Come Let Us Reason Together (Massaomai)
"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."? (Isa 1:18 KJV)
To reason, as given in the above scripture passage according to Strongs Exhaustive Concordance is to decide, justify, appoint, argue, chasten, convince, correct, judge, maintain, pleade, rebuke, reprove.
The purpose of this site is not so much to reason together, but to cause the reader to decide, to consider. The Greek New Testament word "Maasaomai" means to handle, to squeeze, to chew, to gnaw. That is the idea of this site. To take the time, to consider, to chew on, to gnaw on the writings within, to cause to reader to stop and think.
These writings are merely a collection of writings put together for the sole purpose of encouraging and uplifting my fellow Christian brothers and sisters around the world. These writings are not meant to bring glory to myself but to God. For it is He who has given me the breath of life and the abilties I have.
I appologize if I step on any toes. I have no intentions to do so, however, invariably it is hard not to step on ones toes when writing theological ideas.
However, I have strived to back up my statements with scripture, and scripture alone. I was taught in Bible College to let scripture interpret itself and to not let the writings of others be an interpretation unto themselves.
The idea of this site is designed to cause the readers to chew, to gnaw, to consider the words within. Take time to study the scripture passages given and see where God takes you from there.
When one wants to develop a relationship with another, you need to spend quality time with them, especially doing things that they like to do. And so it is with God. If we want to develop a relationship with Him, we need to spend lots of quality time with Him by way of reading His Word daily, studying it, chewing on it, gnawing on it. We need to meditate on His Word. We need to spend lots of time talking to Him in prayer. In so doing we learn more about Him, and as we draw closer to Him, we become more like His Son Jesus Christ.
May you be blessed as you take time to chew and gnaw on the writings within.
I believe our time is drawing near till we shall see Him as He is.
Till then, " look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near." Luke 21:28

I can take no credit for what I write, but give all credit to our Lord. For it is He who gives me life and the abilities to do what I do. It is He whom I get the words to write and am myself inspired by Him. I learn from what I write, because He is teaching me as I study what I write. May He receive the glory and may be drawn closer to Him through the words He leads me to write.
