Apologetics- Philosophy- Prophets http://dai.ly/x6cbdav 



NEW- I made the video- Kings 16- ‘off the cuff’- in the middle of a busy week- but wanted to keep doing the Kings study.

I’ll add my past teaching below and do a few points here.


We see Jehu the prophet ‘pronounce’ certain things [judgment]-

1Kings 16:1 Then the word of the LORD came to Jehu the son of Hanani against Baasha, saying,

1Kings 16:2 Forasmuch as I exalted thee out of the dust, and made thee prince over my people Israel; and thou hast walked in the way of Jeroboam, and hast made my people Israel to sin, to provoke me to anger with their sins;

1Kings 16:3 Behold, I will take away the posterity of Baasha, and the posterity of his house; and will make thy house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat.

1Kings 16:4 Him that dieth of Baasha in the city shall the dogs eat; and him that dieth of his in the fields shall the fowls of the air eat.

And sure enough- these words come to pass-

1Kings 16:10 And Zimri went in and smote him, and killed him, in the twenty and seventh year of Asa king of Judah, and reigned in his stead.

1Kings 16:11 And it came to pass, when he began to reign, as soon as he sat on his throne, that he slew all the house of Baasha: he left him not one that pisseth against a wall, neither of his kinsfolks, nor of his friends.

1Kings 16:12 Thus did Zimri destroy all the house of Baasha, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake against Baasha by Jehu the prophet.

Even though wicked men carry them out- yet they happened by the word of the Lord.

We also see the introduction of Ahab- and his famous wife Jezebel- in this chapter.


Which means we will see Elijah the prophet over the next few weeks [or months?]-

Which makes the next few chapters a bit more interesting.


At the end of the chapter we see what might seem to be an obscure detail-

A man decides to rebuild the famous city of Jericho- destroyed many years earlier under the rule of Joshua [you remember- the walls come tumbling down].

But during the conquest of the promised land- Joshua placed a curse on the man who would build it some day-

Joshua 6:26 And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the LORD, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it.


And sure enough- these many years later- the curse came to pass-

1Kings 16:34 In his days did Hiel the Bethelite build Jericho: he laid the foundation thereof in Abiram his firstborn, and set up the gates thereof in his youngest son Segub, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Joshua the son of Nun.

I also taught a little bit of history- and mentioned the writings of the apostle John- and his theme of the logos- the Word of God.

Actually- in a way it fit with the Chapter- we see the events of history as being framed by the word of God.


Jehu spoke the word of the Lord- and those words did indeed come to pass.

Joshua spoke by the anointing of God- and his words came to pass years later.

The Word of God- spoken by the people of God- carries great authority.


God spoke his Word- he sent his Son as the incarnate Word- the Word made flesh.

And it is thru this act- which we just happen to be celebrating at this season- that all men can find peace and hope.


Yes- the words spoken by Jehu- and Joshua- did bring judgment.

But the Word that God speaks today is life- hope- healing- yes- as many at this season say- peace on Earth and good will towards men.


Because the redeemer has come- and his name is called- THE WORD OF GOD-


11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. [see the rest here- https://ccoutreach87.com/2017/12/28/kings-16/ ]

This day I attended Rock City Church- and spoke on some of the verses Pastor David taught on-

I also shared some recent experiences that I wanted to talk about.


The verse that came to my mind earlier in the day was from Isaiah


Isaiah 52:14

As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:

As we celebrate the birth of Christ during this season- I simply meditated on the price that Jesus paid-

I thought of his miraculous birth- the signs surrounding his life- how his mother ‘pondered’ these strange events as he grew to adulthood-


And then the 3 years of ministry that he embarked upon after his baptism by John.

How he truly fulfilled the prophecies about him- even the ones that spoke of his rejection from others-

Isaiah 53:3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Some in his day even thought he was mentally unstable-


20Then Jesus entered a house, and again a crowd gathered, so that he and his disciples were not even able to eat. 21When his familyb heard about this, they went to take charge of him, for they said, “He is out of his mind.” Mark 3


And even his closets friends doubted him at times- [overblog- see here- https://ccoutreach87.com/2017/12/25/sunday-sermon-20/ ]

I made the teaching video [candle stick] before I finished the job- so on this video I show you the end result.


NEW- I made this video [Candlestick]on the spur of the moment- I explain why on the video-

I talked some from the book of Zechariah and Revelation.


In the past posts section below- I just added some past teaching where I taught on the book of Zechariah in the past [I did a document search for the name Zerubbabel- and simply posted those below]-


I have talked about most of these subjects in the past- and hopefully you will get something of value out of the past teaching added below.

Over the years a lot has been taught on the 2 witnesses in the book of Revelation- and some times we can get lost in too many details-


But the basic principle of God’s people going thru difficult times is a principle that we can all relate to.

The work God has called you- and I to- will only be accomplished through the power of God.


It is not by might- or our own strength- but by the Spirit of God working in the church that enables God's witnesses to speak boldly- to challenge unjust governments- to indeed speak ‘truth to power’.


These are biblical principles that have been true all along-

And still true today.



PAST POSTS- [Below you find past teaching I did that relates in some way to today’s post- Candlestick]









Isaiah 56:8

The Lord God, which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.

Caller Times

Posted on by John Chiarello

THE CALLER TIMES OF CORPUS CHRISTI- Questions for Dwayne Bivona- Tim Archuleta- Nick Jimenez- Allison Ehrlich- and Tome Whitehurst Jr.- did they illegally collude in their recent articles?- the public has a right to know!


Micah 6:9

The Lord's voice crieth unto the city, and the man of wisdom shall see thy name: hear ye the rod, and who hath appointed it.

In Context | Full Chapter | Other Translations



Did the Caller Times collude in racist coverage of White Mayor?



.Why did the Caller Times have 3 opinion pieces against the White mayor?

.All 3 put blame at the White mayors feet if civilians are killed by cars because the mayor took down road blocks

.Yet- the majority of the citizens of Corpus Christi want the barriers taken down

.One opinion piece said the mayors decision will lead to babies being run over in baby strollers

.Yet in the past the Caller Times defended the Mexican Judge- Manuel Banales- for his maiming of people in vehicular crimes

.We call upon the caller times- and the following employees- Dwayne Bivona- Tim Archuleta- Nick Jimenez- Allison Ehrlich- Tom Whitehurst Jr. To immediately release their financial information- salaries- etc.- so the public can see if their are any political- or corruption connections that has led to their obvious racist coverage of the White mayor

.The Caller Times has asked this same information from local Christian ministries before-

.So we- the public- have a right to know the same

.In their editorial page for Tuesday- December 19- 2017 they made defamatory statements against the White Mayor- even to the point of putting the blame on him if any children die because of his decision to open shoreline road

.Did the caller times illegally collude with any anti Anglo organizations before publishing such biased opinion articles?

.Why does the Caller Times defend a decision by one rogue employee to shut down a major road- and question the white mayor when he simply was doing his job in order to prevent one rogue employee from making a decision that would effect 360 thousand people?

.They never did this when the Mexican mayor Nelda Martinez simply did her job?

.We- the public- ask for the Caller Times to come clean-

.We live in a day where all people- regardless of race or creed- should be treated fairly

.The obvious bias of their coverage of a White Mayor calls into question their reporting

.We- the public- simply ask these questions today- will the Caller times simply respond that they have  no illegal connections to corruption within Corpus Christ?

.And that these connections- if true- are not being used to bring down leaders in this community-

.The question has now been put forth in an open public forum- we- the public- are waiting for a response


Isaiah 41:2

Who raised up the righteous man from the east, called him to his foot, gave the nations before him, and made him rule over kings? he gave them as the dust to his sword, and as driven stubble to his bow.

.See the road in question

.Caller Times refuses to take their own advice

.Who’s the rogue employee?

.We the public have a right to know!

.As of this video- the Caller Times refuses to answer the questions posed to them today on public forums

.Racism discussion

.Will the Caller Times finally release their financial records- the same way they too have asked of the churches in this community for the past 35 years?

.Why the double standard Caller Times?

.What are you trying to hide?


Jeremiah 6:27

I have set thee for a tower and a fortress among my people, that thou mayest know and try their way.

Nick Jimenez and the Caller Times- were not living in the days of the 1968 lowrider anymore!


.Tom Petty- the only good thing about his passing

.The judge the caller times refuses to cover

.We call for a criminal investigation of the rogue employee who possibly broke the law by illegally obstructing a right of way by not going thru proper channels

.Welcome to the new day caller times


Jeremiah 17:15

Behold, they say unto me, Where is the word of the Lord? let it come now.

In Context | Full Chapter | Other Translations


Will the Caller Times editorial board face obstruction of justice charges for their pressuring of the mayor to drop his investigation of possible criminal activity by a rogue city worker?



LAST NOTE- I have done today what the local media does every day- I have asked them to answer the tough questions. These questions were posted thru out the day on many public forums. Before I ‘go to press’- I have given them one last opportunity to be open with the community they claim to serve- and simply give us- the public- some answers.


But they have refused to do so- So I will post this in a few minutes- and let the chips fall where they may. It is indeed possible that they have committed the crime of obstruction of Justice in their pressuring of a city official to drop his investigation into possible criminal activity.

 And if so- then the courts must decide the just punishment.


But to be honest- the other crimes the media have covered up for are the real damage to our community. The things I talked about thru out the day.

Whats worse- a rogue city employee putting up a barrier- or a rogue judge with connections to the drug cartels out of Mexico?

 I’ll let you- the public- decide. [overblog- see here- https://ccoutreach87.com/2017/12/21/caller-times/ ]

I talked on the verses from the Sunday Mass and a few from Church Unlimited-

I’ll add my past teachings below and try and simply share a point or 2 here-


The reading from the Old Testament focused on the calling of John the Baptist-

Isaiah 40:3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Isaiah 40:4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:

And in the reading from the gospel we see the fulfillment-

Mark 1:2 As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

Mark 1:3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

Mark 1:4 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.

John came out of nowhere if you will- some scholars think John was part of the Qumran community- these were Jews who separated themselves and lived a solitary life-


Whether John was an Essene I don’t know-

But he was certainly a culture shock to the people he preached to-

He was dressed like a wild prophet- wore camels skins and ate locusts and honey-

Mark 1:6 And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey;

Yet- he was sent by God- and was spoken about some 600 years before he appeared on the scene-

Even Malachi prophesied about him-

Malachi 3:1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the LORD, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

Jesus himself said this was speaking about John-

Matthew 11:7 And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?

Matthew 11:8 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses.

Matthew 11:9 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.

Matthew 11:10 For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

Matthew 11:11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

Being we are in the chapter- he also said John fulfilled the Elijah prophecy as well-

Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

Matthew 11:13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.

Matthew 11:14 And if ye will receive it, this is Elias [Elijah] which was for to come.

We find this prophecy in Malachi as well- [overblog- see here- https://ccoutreach87.com/2017/12/17/sunday-sermon-19/ ]

I made these videos yesterday and needed a post to tag them to-

I felt this day was meant to hang out with some of the guys- to be honest- I was cold but it was meant to be.


You only catch a small glimpse of the day- I have known these guys for many years.

Many of the friends I have met the last few years are really new friends- not part of the community that have been around for years.


When I spent about 4 hours with Andy and Art- we did talk about the old days- but to be honest- Art shared in a way I have never heard him open up before- you don’t catch this on video- but after knowing him for around 20 years- it was one of the first times we had some real honest discussion.


The whole day was indeed ministry- honest evaluation of our lives- some of the guys told me they never thought they would wind up where they ‘wound up’.

Many of the guys have skills- education- and are very talented- and they have had to deal with the reality of the choices they have made- they were telling me this during our talks-


And how they took responsibility for being where they are.

To be honest- they were the ones actually ‘doing ministry’ this day- I was just there as a friend.


Zechariah 8:6

Thus saith the Lord of hosts; If it be marvellous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, should it also be marvellous in mine eyes? saith the Lord of hosts.

The ultimate victory over satan- is seen in the first few verses-

Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

Ephesians 2:3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

God made us alive- we have been raised with Christ- and it is in this act of redemption that delivers us from the ‘course of this world’- the course that unbelievers walk- and give expression to the ‘prince of the air’-


Satan deceives lost man- and when man walks in the flesh- this is the primary way satan manifests himself in the world-


Later in this study we will look at spiritual warfare- but for now- we see it is thru the Resurrection that satan has been dealt a death blow.


Now the ‘famous’ passage- [overblog- see here- https://ccoutreach87.com/2017/12/13/ephesians-2/ ]

Snow- 2  https://youtu.be/NwI0Oq8gcfs




I covered a lot on the video-


Just a few points-

Jesus called us to yoke up with him- meaning we receive the grace of the new covenant in his blood-

We are no longer under the yoke of the law- or bondage- but have been joined with him in new life-

This is the ‘easy yoke’- he himself is doing the work by his Spirit which resides in us.


God has given to us the wisdom and knowledge to carry out the task he has called us to do-

We speak [utterance] and do the works of the kingdom- because in actuality it is God doing it thru us.

I also got into apologetics- mentioned a new science show that has come on one of the local talk radio stations.


I’m grateful for the show- but talked about some of the contradictions the good men made.


This is not the first time I have dealt with the issue- but it shows us the limitations of science-

I tried not to do this critique in a critical [or negative] way- but attempted to give a balance to the limits of science.


I gave a little example form a ‘floating globe’ that my daughter bought a few weeks ago-


Science now teaches us that there was a time when ‘nothing was’ [Big Bang]-

We did not always know this- that there was an actual starting point to time- matter- space and energy.


But science [not religion] has now proven this..

We also know- thru science- that nothing comes from nothing.


So- because we do indeed have something today- creation- by necessity there must have been a cause for this [necessary being]-


This cause had to have been outside of the created order- he had to be non- matter- and he himself had to have no beginning point-

This is a logical- scientific statement- because all things could not have come from no thing [nothing].


So thinkers- scientists- theologians- all of them have to answer the question of First Cause.

The only logical conclusion is a being who himself has no beginning- this being by necessity has to have immense knowledge- wisdom- and creative ability.


Christian thinkers have called this being God-

Who according to Christian tradition does indeed posses all the attributes mentioned above.


Some atheists have credited all things to some type of alien being- and they have also attributed these same attributes to their ‘alien’-

Simply showing us that even the greatest scientific minds realize it is not possible for there to be anything today [world- universe- etc.] unless something started it- created it- did it.


This is not a religious belief-

This is the only logical explanation for why things exist today [Law of cause and effect]-

Remember- nothing comes from nothing- ever.


Ok- I talked about much more on the video-

And will try and add my past teachings below-

Kings 15

Posted on by John Chiarello


1Kings 15:4 Nevertheless for David's sake did the LORD his God give him a lamp in Jerusalem, to set up his son after him, and to establish Jerusalem:

NEW- Why am I still teaching Kings? I explain on video.


Just a few practical things here-

We see the heirs to the thrones [both Israel and Judah] and how their sons after them often follow the footsteps of their dads- but not in every case.


Usually those with short reigns- are leading the people down wrong paths- and those with longer rule- are attempting to do what is right.


Asa- king of Judah- does right- has a 41 year reign- and he is a builder.

Yet- in times of trouble- he takes the restored wealth- and hires the king of Syria to fight against Baasha- king of Israel- in order to stop Baasha from fighting him.


Baasha was building Ramah- a city that was vital to the survival of Judah- and the king of Syria does his hired’ job- breaks a covenant he had with the king of Israel and attacks him.


Baasha- the Israelite king leaves off building of Ramah- and goes home to protect his own turf.

Then Asa makes a decree- and he uses all the stones that were being built against him- and builds good out of them.


The lesson is clear- what the enemy meant for evil- Asa turned it around- and built the kingdom [or 2 cities]-


Just a note- down the road we will read a rebuke that God gave to Judah- because they trusted in the arm of the flesh in hiring the king of Syria- and did not trust wholly in the Lord.

But the idea was good at least- in using the enemies rocks- and making something good out of it.


I’ll add my past teaching on this chapter below- and simply end this note by encouraging you- what roadblocks have you had to deal with on your journey?

Have they seemed unfair?


Often times they do-

But turn it around- wait on the Lord- maybe for a season you will have to put the building project off- because of a fierce battle.


Fine- fight the battle- but don’t forget to get back to the task at hand.

You are a builder of the kingdom of God.


The rulers of this world did something- they crucified the Lord of glory-

But if they knew what they were doing at the time- they would have never done it-


1 Corinthians 2:8

Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. [overblog- see here- https://ccoutreach87.com/2017/12/06/kings-15/ ]

.Jansenism- I talked about this movement on the video- http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/08285a.htm 





NEW- I covered the verses from this Sunday’s Mass and a few notes from Church Unlimited-

I’ll add my past teaching below that relates.


I did teach some on Philosophy- Descartes- Leibniz and Pascal.

Descartes was born in 1596- died in 1650-

The most famous saying from Descartes is Cogito Ergo Sum- loosely meaning ‘I think- therefore I am’.


Pascal is also famous for his writings called the Pensees https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pens%C3%A9es  these were various thoughts he had written down which became famous after his death.

They were not intended to be a complete teaching on the existence of God- but simply insights he jotted down during his life.


He was a Catholic Christian [like the others I mentioned above] and did associate himself with the Jansenist's- a catholic movement that was a sort of Reform movement in itself- but they remained within the Church- https://www.britannica.com/topic/Jansenism 


They revived the teachings of Saint Augustine- and challenged the institutional church of their day.

I actually mentioned Augustine while I talked philosophy- his famous bent oar example- when you see an oar in the water- the senses [sight] seem to show it as being bent- http://lonergan.org/online_books/Liddy/chapter_four_augustine.htm 


Though it just ‘seems' that way to the eye- yet in reality it is not bent.

This example came up while I talked about the whole subject of how we know what we know- a field all the thinkers I mentioned in this post dealt with- called epistemology.


The history of Theology- Science- Philosophy- were all intertwined when you sought a higher education in the classical sense-

As we got into Aristotle and Plato- I could not think of the school Plato started-


After I shut the vidoe off- I remembered- I believe it was the Academy [Honest- haven't checked it yet- but taught all this before so if I’m right I’ll leave this note- I have since checked- here’s the link- http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/text?doc=Perseus%3Atext%3A1999.04.0009%3Achapter%3D15%3Asection%3D2 ].


There were a few ‘coincidences’ that fit in with this weeks teaching- I share them on the video.


Leibniz shares the distinction as one of the inventors of Calculus [along with Newton]- https://www.thegreatcoursesdaily.com/invented-calculus-newton-leibniz/ 

And at the end of the video I mentioned Pascal’s Wager- https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/pascal-wager/  my daughter mentioned how it was funny- because she just moved her own copy of the book the day or so before-


So these are just a few notes- I’ll add the rest below-



PAST POSTS- [As I was adding my links and past posts- I realized it would be too much if I added them all- the ones that would relate to what I taught today- called the PAST POSTS section on my posts- so below are a few- if you want to research more- just check out my blogs]
