As I was looking over notes that I had taken from my phone call with Pastor R this week, my mind went to stories that many of us have read in the Book of Acts. Stories of the seedling Church on the Day of Pentecost which grew into a force that has not been stopped […]
I had a question come to mind: If I only had time enough left in my life to write one more article, what would it be? I decided I would call the article, “What If?” The Old Testament prophet Daniel was given visions of events ushering in the seven years of Apocalypse that were revealed […]
I have been interested in Bible prophecy since I was a boy. I was raised with a good fundamental Bible background, and due to well-taught Sunday School classes, had a good Biblical foundation. At the time, actual prophecies that a student could recognize as being fulfilled in real time were not very common. However, by […]
There have been hundreds of so-called prophets and false messiahs in the almost 2000 years since Jesus ascended back to the throne of God. All of them eventually die, and NONE of them have ever come back from the dead! Jesus was very specific in His warning for us not to be deceived by any […]
In Part 8, we looked at several Scriptures describing the days that Jesus warned would come. Several verses in Matthew 24 speak of war. As we look back at world history, it is plain to see that man’s history is filled with war. So what was Jesus speaking of that is different than what man’s […]
At this point in the discussion I would like to go into some of the preparations that are happening behind the scenes that most people are not aware of. I will come back to the upcoming third incursion of Nephilim after more groundwork has been laid. The late scientist, David Flynn, said: “Currently, the group […]
This special Middle East update gives an accurate view of what the life of a Christian pastor is like in Syria. It also shows how brutal Islam is toward anyone who believes differently, especially Christians. There are martyrs for their faith in Jesus every single day, but Jesus is about to call His own home, and very, very soon. We must be prepared, it was Jesus command to His true followers. The door to the ark is about to shut!
In the days we live in, it is more important than ever to develop an intimate walk with God–not just a shallow “Now I lay me down to sleep” prayer, or even “Grace” at a meal, but a genuine walk with God. That is the only thing that is going to help us to navigate the days ahead.
The parable of the ten virgins might have more spiritual depth of meaning than many give it credit for. It is easy to pass off some of the details in Jesus’ parables and say that the details aren’t all that important because they are only parables. I don’t believe this and through this series of articles am trying to show this. Even salvation is absolutely free, there are still requirements that God has placed upon our living upon this earth. We tend to forget that this is the training ground and we are just passing through.
It is a hard thing for many of us to realize that some of our traditional teachings do not cover the whole truth being conveyed in God’s Word. This is of course also a common line used by many cultists and so I would encourage the reader to check these things out for yourself before accepting “truths” from anyone. It must be confirmed in the Word of God. Often it is of great value to research the original usage of words so that the true meaning is understood. This often casts a bit of light on the subject not seen before. This is the case with many of the things that Jesus said, particularly in His parables.
