Whom Will God Rapture?

In a number of my blog posts, I make the statement that God will Rapture His true church.  Recently, upon reading one of my articles where I said that, Linda contacted me with a concern that warrants discussion.  In her email, Linda wrote: You said that Jesus will rapture those who are faithful, believe and…

How We Limit God! — Part 2

Our typical Christian thinking tends to cause erroneous ideas regarding many aspects of the Bible.  One example of this that has popped into view for me recently is with the New Heavens and New Earth that we see in Revelation 21-22. What has been the way we’ve inevitably thought about “heaven?”  When we die we…

Replacement Theology in the Deuteronomy 32 Worldview

When we approach the Bible with what is known as the Deuteronomy 32 worldview, we understand why Replacement Theology is so prevalent today.  Replacement Theology takes the Biblically false view that Israel no longer has a place in God’s plans and purposes because 1) Israel blew it, and 2) the Church has taken her place….

Called To Suffer

Why is it many people don’t understand that being called to become a disciple of Jesus Christ involves suffering, that rather, they believe it is supposed to be a comfortable life filled with material blessings? The Lord was quite clear to Saul when He called him on the road to Damascus where he became the…

The Blasphemy of Jesus

When reading Matthew 26 where Jesus is brought before the Sanhedrin for them to judge Him, no doubt you’ve seen the extreme reaction by Caiaphas the high priest.  Caiaphas is interrogating Jesus and is getting frustrated because He doesn’t say a word in His defense.  Finally, in this confrontation Caiaphas has had enough.  Matthew 26:62-66…

This morning in my daily Bible reading I came across the following verse in John 1:51, in which Jesus tells his soon-to-be disciples the wonders that await them as they follow Him: “I tell you the truth, you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”…

The Parable of the Tenants

Matthew 21:33-46: “Listen to another parable: There was a landowner who planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a winepress in it and built a watchtower. Then he rented the vineyard to some farmers and moved to another place. When the harvest time approached, he sent his servants to the tenants to…

Doors

There are two kinds of doors mentioned in the Bible.  One is bad, the other is good.  We need to know which door to enter in order for us to live life as God wills for us. Proverbs 5:8 continues the thoughts of Solomon as he instructs his son.  He gives much advice to avoid…

Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard

In Matthew 19:30, Jesus tells his disciples: “But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.” This leads me to the Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard in Matthew 20:1-16. Jesus tells us that the Kingdom of Heaven is like this situation:  A landowner hires a number…
