Israel’s Repentance: Prophetic Evidence of the Believer’s Security

Scripture provides no ambiguity about the disobedience and contrary stance of Israel.

The Kingdom Did Not Come on Pentecost

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

The Death Blow to the Amillennial Claim of a Present-Day Millennium

Has your congregation dedicated any degree of time and effort into investigating the meaning of the Book of Revelation, beyond the first three chapters?

Answering the Root of Rapture Rejection (Part 2 of 2)

As we continue our response to Christendom’s widespread rejection of the rapture, we must look at another essential reason for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ for his church.

Jesus describes the rapture … Continue reading Answering the Root of Rapture Rejection (Part 1 of 2)

The Regathering of Israel – Supreme Evidence of God’s Faithfulness

Have you ever considered that no Hittites are still with us today? There are no Philistines, Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, or Amalekites. These ancient peoples of Bible times have been absorbed into present-day nations and their cultures destroyed. At one time, the Mesopotamians (the people Abraham was called out of), were the most advanced civilization on … Continue reading The Regathering of Israel – Supreme Evidence of God’s Faithfulness
