Historic 5-4 SCOTUS Decision Sets Ominous Precedent for American Churches

In a great victory for the godless Left, the United States Supreme Court has ruled state governments may limit capacity of religious gatherings.

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 Virus Pandemic Exposes Antichrist’s Means of Seizing Power

Concerning the Literal Return and Reign of Christ

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

We have already discussed Messiah’s promised reign, as foretold by the Old Testament prophets, and confirmed by the apostles and authors of the New Testament … Continue reading Answering the Root of Rapture Rejection (Part 2 of 2)

My Escape From Amillennialism’s Fictitious Works-Based Salvation

Growing up in Churches of Christ and receiving instruction at two preaching schools affiliated with our brotherhood, I never heard any viable explanation regarding reward. Even as a full-time preacher, it was a muddled and confusing topic for me. I believed that salvation itself is the only reward we receive through obedient works, but the … Continue reading My Escape From Amillennialism’s Fictitious Works-Based Salvation

Answering the Root of Rapture Rejection (Part 1 of 2)

As Christians, our great expectation is the return of Jesus Christ to this earth. From Scripture, we know this involves two essential phases. First, Jesus will come for his church to collect us to himself and rescue us from death and the tribulation (this event is commonly known as, “the rapture”). Jesus describes the rapture … Continue reading Answering the Root of Rapture Rejection (Part 1 of 2)
