Isaiah 22:13 – You Did Not Look To Him

In Isaiah 22, the prophet gives an oracle – a vision – for Jerusalem.  I could be wrong, but it appears to me that this is both a lament for what had already occurred and a warning of what was to come with the destruction of the daughter of my people (Isaiah 22:4).  A great…

Isaiah 13:20 – Babylon Never Again Inhabited

What is the eschatological secret of Babylon?  Many have tried to understand this over the years.  I confess that I am one of them.  There are two primary narratives as to what is end-times Babylon.  What is most popular?  Which account makes the most sense – at least to me? Babylon has a long and…

Isaiah 10:5 – The Rod of His Anger

God sometimes uses the unjust to punish those He loves because they, too, have been unjust. A statement like this may not go down well with many in today’s modern church.  Surely, if God loves us, He wouldn’t allow others who hate Him to harm His elect!  How could that be?  Our God is a…

Isaiah 9:10 – The Bricks Have Fallen

Some of you are familiar with the book written several years ago by Jonathan Cahn called The Harbinger (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005IYEQKI/).  In examining the ancient prophecies of Israel, Cahn saw a parallel warning that applied to America.  His book and explanation were controversial, but Bible prophecy always is. The initial warning that Isaiah related from the Lord…

If the Tribulation Is Near, the Rapture Must Be Nearer

This is a fascinating study.  The artwork with the extensive illustrations is genius and well worth the price of admission (n/c). Is the author correct in his calculations?  Will the ancient pattern of numbers hold true to today? This video was created in November 2020.  Based on what the author projects, and depending on the…

Isaiah 3:9 – They Proclaim Their Sin

The first several chapters of Isaiah read as if God could be speaking to us today.  God called Isaiah to proclaim Israel’s sin so as to awaken the people to their danger of imminent judgment.  He cared deeply for His children Israel, but they were indifferent.  By this time in their history, God’s Chosen People…

Ecclesiastes 7:25 – The Wickedness of Folly

When Solomon became king at a young age following the death of his father David, he approached God and prayed mightily to Him.  His heart was right with the Lord.  Because of this, Yahweh answered Him.  God declared that since Solomon desired nothing for himself but wisdom in order to govern the people of Israel…

2 Corinthians 3:14 – Their Minds Were Hardened

The nation of Israel had everything going for it.  After all, when God has specially chosen you to be the focus and recipient of the purpose and destiny He has planned for mankind, surely He would pour out incredible mercy and goodness upon you.  That’s certainly the case, but Israel squandered it. God gave Moses…

1 Corinthians 10:6 – Examples

Paul wanted the church in Corinth to understand the mercy of God and His grace, but to certainly not take it for granted.  Although he was writing primarily to a Gentile church, Paul described those whom God delivered from exile in Egypt – the Jewish people – as their fathers.  He did this because the…

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 8-18-21: Last Trumpet or Pre-Trib Rapture?

It’s been a while since I did a straight-up teaching on the Pre-Tribulation Rapture. Because of the varying views on the Rapture as to its timing, whenever I comment on the truth that the Rapture must occur prior to the 7-year Tribulation, I inevitably get messages wherever the video is posted by those who think…
