Stephen is remembered by Christians as a bold preacher of the gospel of Christ, and one of the earliest martyrs of the faith. His blistering message to the Jewish Sanhedrin, delivered on the last day of his life, sums up the history of Israel with an emphasis on her pattern of stubborn rejection of God. … Continue reading Seven Rejections of the Kingdom
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?
In a great victory for the godless Left, the United States Supreme Court has ruled state governments may limit capacity of religious gatherings. Joining the “liberal” justices, Chief Justice John Roberts argued First Amendment freedoms are not threatened by the ruling, since similar restrictions are currently in place for non-religious places of assembly, such as … Continue reading Historic 5-4 SCOTUS Decision Sets Ominous Precedent for American Churches
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
Not long ago, many of us were working, visiting friends, and busy going about our day-to-day lives as usual. Suddenly, disturbing events began to unfold on a grand scale. The coronavirus pandemic, and accompanying worldwide panic, brought about an economic shutdown and stay-at-home orders in nearly every country. We witnessed the freezing of international and … Continue reading The Virus Pandemic Exposes Antichrist’s Means of Seizing Power
“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
