God’s Divine Family Council

In the Book of Job, we get a glimpse of how God’s Divine Council works.  Somewhere in the beginning, God created the heavenly host.  Whether this was before the account of creation that we read about in Genesis or during, we don’t know.  Since Scripture is silent about God creating His divine family, it’s likely…

New Age Spirituality & the Sons of God

The New Age movement, i.e. the New Spirituality, isn’t really so new.  Its roots go back to antiquity.  They weave throughout the Bible.  And they manifest in various world religions such as Hinduism and Buddhism.  These roots are fascinating and deadly. In order to see the nature of these roots, we have to look at…

Counterfeit Redemption

When I was saved and born again in 2005, my pastor impressed on me the importance of reading the Bible daily.  He held a Bible up over my head and said that everything in our lives must come under the Word of God.  Being brand new in the Lord and having no idea what real…

Welcome to Looking Up

The name of this blog is taken from Luke 21:28 where Jesus says: “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”

Aliens & UFOs: A Christian Perspective

I’ve previously said in this blog that few pastors preach on Bible prophecy and end-times events.  I’ve got another one for you.  Have you ever heard any pastors preaching on alien abductions?  I didn’t think so. Here we go where pastors fear to tread… Aliens and UFOs are a cultural phenomenon.  They’re popularized in movies. …

Rising Spirit of Antichrist

I had a conversation recently with my pastor who said that he is seeing the hate and the lies rising all around us, and that this is clear evidence of the spirit of antichrist in the world today. I said, “Welcome to the club.”  That’s not to pat myself on the back, but for those…

Choosing Jesus – When?

Let’s start this message with a couple of Scriptures to set the stage.  The first is Philippians 2:10-11, which says: “that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” And then…

Why Bible Prophecy

It seems as though Bible prophecy has a bad name these days.  When believers in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture espouse this position, there are numerous “Christians” who ridicule the notion that Jesus will come back for His church in a timely manner.  Why is this such a strange and unpopular notion? If these scoffers were to…

Prophecy Revealed & Blessed

I mentioned in my initial blog post that prophecy comprises a significant portion of the Bible.  God’s servants, the prophets, wrote up to one-third of Bible text that involves future events described from a prophetic perspective.  Just from that alone, it should be evident that prophecy is important to God. However, God doesn’t stop there,…

Blog Introduction

The name of this blog is taken from Luke 21:28 where Jesus says: “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” I have no doubt this blog will be quite different from the majority of blogs that many might read.  I’m a pastor as…
