The timing for the release of my first book (TODAY!) seems appropriate with stock market crashes, blood moons and the end of the Shmita. Although the Church realizes something is happening, it isn’t quite sure what to do about it. The Church is asleep.
In the Gospel of Luke, Jesus referred to something he called “The Times of the Gentiles.” This phrase has puzzled Bible scholars for 2000 years. But if we carefully examine the phrase, we can get a good approximation of what this mysterious time period might mean.
Nearly every Chirstian knows the phrase “Great Tribulation.” But most don’t have a clear understanding of what it is, how it fits in with the rest of Daniel’s 70th Week, and what exactly will happen during this time. So what does great tribulation mean?
Can we know with certainty that Jesus is coming back soon? Or will it always be a mystery? This is an enormously important question.
I recently received a comment to another post. I realize that few of you will read the thirtieth or fortieth comment to a post, but this comment was highly significant, so I thought I’d answer it in this post.
The comment was more like an advertisement for a book that criticized prophecy teachers who claim Jesus will be returning soon. The comment called many of these teachers “Propheteers,” and implied most were making their claims for financial gain.
Financial gain aside, the question I asked at the beginning hangs in the air, “Can we know with certainty that Jesus is coming back soon? Or will it always be a mystery?”
Turkey’s worst enemy has been given the green light to gain nuclear bombs. Why would this deal make Turkey overjoyed?
Christians are dismayed and stunned by the unjust decision of the Supreme Court to bypass the Constitution and legalize Same Sex Marriage. how did this happen?
One of our readers, Phil, sent me a very long comment quoting a blog on the Pre-Tribulation Rapture by Jack Kelly, a leading Pre-Trib exponent. I’d like to approach answering this as a conversation because Mr. Kelly and I are brothers in Christ and because frankly, all of us see through a glass darkly. No one has all the end time answers. But I also want both sides of this issue expressed so oureaders can make up their own minds. Should they be Pre-Wrath or Pre-Trib?
Many issues in regard to the end times are somewhat academic; the identities of the 2 witnesses for instance. The timing of the Rapture is NOT one of these. It is a matter of spiritual life and death. Let’s find out why.
The Chinese written language came into existence over 4000 years ago. It is believed to be the oldest continuously written language in existence. Do these ancient Kanji pictographs reflect the history of Genesis chapters 1 -11? If Genesis depicted in Chinese characters what does that mean? How did that happen? What purpose might God have in perserving this ancient writing style?
“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye” we will be changed. Most Christians believe this, but have you given thought to what it means? Spiritually it will mean a sinless state worthy of being in God’s presence. It will also mean immortality and the right to eat of the Tree of Life. But what will we look like physically? We had a request from a reader to speculate on what “changed” might mean and what our resurrection bodies might be like.
UPDATE 10/14/2015: The sign described below is being repeated in the sky again this month. On 10/25/15 Jupiter and Venus will come within 1 degree of conjunction; again in the constellation of Leo. This can be seen in the early morning hours in the eastern sky.
Yes, I know this is an absolutely crazy title for a blog, but sit tight, God is revealing signs in the stars that are amazing.
There will be signs in sun and moon and stars. (Luke 21: 25)
