Reflections on the Word of God
George Thomas Yapuncich
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3:16, ESV)
Amen does not mean “the end,” rather “I agree” or “I confirm.” The sin of adultery is not only physical but spiritual as well. We are justified (forgiven of sin) at the point of conversion, but sanctification (being made holy) is a lifelong process. The curtain torn at Jesus’s crucifixion was over six inches thick and sixty feet tall. The Tree of Life is the real reason Adam and Eve were banished from the garden. Satan, once the morning star of heaven, the model of perfection, did not fall from heaven, he was shoved out by God for his arrogance and pride.
George T. Yapuncich, a pastor, mentor, husband, father, farmer and retired international businessman, reflects on these and hundreds of other terms, doctrines and biblical thoughts in this anthology prepared for contemplation and growth in biblical understanding. Its purpose is to open God’s Word to comprehend His glory and majesty more fully. Each term is exhibited in a Bible verse, demonstrating its importance and usage. Through direct application the reader can more fully grasp the true connotation of these terms thus invoking thoughts and feelings over and above their primary or literal meanings.
This is not a book of definitions, but a book of images. Its purpose is to encourage the inquisitive mind in not only mining God’s Word, but to more fully live out His Word in thought and deed.
