Secular humanism theorizes that our universe is a lifeless anomaly. The worldview taught by people in authority today essentially denies that mankind has any spiritual value. It presupposes our existence is by pure chance, having no eternal significance whatsoever. We are the product of material happenstance and cosmic coincidence, according to modern “scientists”. We are … Continue reading Taking a Fresh Look at God’s Living Universe
Everywhere we look, we see corruption and catastrophes of various kinds. There have always been disasters, but the conditions of our world have never been this pronounced. The spiritual ignorance and depravity of mankind is more prominent than ever before. A colossal shift is taking place, both in human activity and in nature. Media and … Continue reading Blindness on the Precipice of God’s Wrath (Part 2 of 2)
With great interest, I have been following the latest developments surrounding the Qanon movement. Admittedly, I have not been reading the “Q drops” from the very beginning, but I have a number of friends who have. They are brethren in Christ who research and study the meaning of every “Q proof”, tying each prediction together … Continue reading On the Verge of the Great Awakening or the Great Deception?
(The following two-part series was originally printed in the Pine Prairie Church of Christ bulletin in three parts. It has been condensed into two parts with the second installment to be published in the October issue of KPG.) Running with your eyes closed is never advisable, but it is especially dangerous near the edge of … Continue reading Blindness on the Precipice of God’s Wrath (Part 1 of 2)
Child sacrifice to pagan deities is addressed throughout Bible history. Molech (also spelled Molek, Molekh, Moloch, Molok, Molock, Moloc, Melech, Milcom or Molcom), the sacred bull, was one of the most prominent gods of the Canaanite peoples of antiquity. However, there is much evidence of the worship of Molech outside of the land of Palestine. … Continue reading The Resurgence of Child Sacrifice in the Last Days
Scripture unmistakably declares the essentiality of baptism. It is necessary to “be saved” (Mark 16:16), to “put on Christ” (Gal. 3:27), to “wash away your sins” (Acts 22:16), and to be “raised by faith in the powerful working of God” (Rom. 6:3 – 6; Col 2:12). There is no one written in the Lamb’s Book … Continue reading Is Baptism Essential to Enter the Millennial Kingdom of Jesus Christ?
Scripture provides no ambiguity about the disobedience and contrary stance of Israel. Jesus lamented the unwillingness of the cities of Chorazin and Bethsaida to come to repentance even after witnessing the performance of most of his mighty works (Matt. 11:20 – 24). He also pronounced woes upon the religious leaders of Israel, even condemning them … Continue reading Israel’s Repentance: Prophetic Evidence of the Believer’s Security
The Kingdom of God is a common theme throughout the Bible’s prophetic literature. We know the kingdom is headed by its King, Jesus Christ, who will rule until he has placed all enemies under his feet (1 Cor. 15:24 – 28). Its origin is “from another place” (Jn. 18:36). As we read of “the kingdom … Continue reading The Kingdom Did Not Come on Pentecost
Out of humility, John never mentions himself by name in his gospel account. He only refers to himself as "the disciple whom Jesus loved" (John 13:23; 19:26; 21:7; 21:20). In the final chapter, John speaks of a saying of the Lord that circulated among believers of the early church. "If it is my will that … Continue reading Resurrection or Renewal at the Rapture – What is that to you?
“Hide and Seek” is one of the most universal experiences of childhood. Within the innocent, trivial game lies an integral truth. The one who “seeks” should wait for a predetermined amount of time; after time has elapsed, he or she shouts, “Ready or not, here I come!” Similarly, Jesus ascended to heaven, for a predetermined … Continue reading Concerning the Literal Return and Reign of Christ
