Gog and the Antichrist - one and the same.

One of the more popular ideas that has emerged, particularly in modern prophecy circles, is the idea that Gog is a last days leader of Magog - which some interpret to be Russia. Individuals who claim this, try to insert a separate invasion and battle prior to the final end-time battle described in  […]

Seventy "sevens" have been decreed for your people and your holy city

Jeremiah prophesied that Israel would be conquered by Babylon and remain in captivity for seventy years. This whole country will become a desolate wasteland, and these nations will serve the king of Babylon seventy years. Jer 25:11 At the end of that 70 years of captivity, Daniel, being aware of  […]

The Kingdom of Heaven - on Earth

One of the most frustrating aspects about the teachings surrounding our eternal rewards is the belief that our ultimate destiny is that of some kind of eternal, ethereal, spiritual existence floating around in heaven. Let's examine what the Bible really says on this matter.  First of all, upon  […]

Matt 24: "when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?"

I've heard some people say the events described at the beginning of Matt 24 are a mirror of the first six seals within the Book of Revelation. This is an over-generalization. There are many similarities. But there are also many differences. Jesus, in Matt 24, is addressing a fairly wide time-span.  […]

"the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to Him"

There are only four verses in the New Testament that speak explicitly about the "catching up", or the "rapture", or the "gathering of the elect". All four are very straightforward. They’re extremely easy to understand. "Let no one deceive you in any way. For that  […]

"None is righteous, no, not one"

Everybody makes mistakes. But it still shakes the soul when you discover ethical discrepancies or failures at the helm of a ministry that you've followed, relied upon, and trusted in for years.  "None is righteous, no, not one" Rom 3:10

"I will shake all things"

This is one reason why I believe that we are very near the end of this age and are fast approaching the "Day of the Lord". Aside from a very literal shaking, that is yet to come, I believe this pandemic, and all its spin-off side effects, is shaking the foundation of virtually everything.  […]

"Let us not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is"

If you've been around church cultures long enough, you've probably heard this statement, at least once: "Let us not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is". It's a slight variation of a passage from Hebrews (Heb 10:25) that is often used as an admonition  […]

Measuring the "prosperity gospel" against the experience of the apostles.

I've noticed that the Spirit will often draw our mind's attention to specific verses in response to issues we are dealing with. Paul describes this process as the "Spirit bearing witness with our human spirit" (Rom 8:16). This happened yesterday morning with me. In response to  […]

Fire and Foundations

"though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in various trials so that the proven character of your faith—more precious than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ." 1 Pet 1:6-7 Paul, in 1  […]

The Mystery of God: from "hardening of heart" to "I will pour out My Spirit on the House of Israel"

"I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, so that you will not be conceited: A hardening in part has come to Israel, until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. Rom 11:25 But then, at the seventh trumpet, when the full number of Gentiles has come in, something  […]
