Matthew 25:12,30 – Two More Rapture Warnings

How anyone can read the New Testament and come away not seeing the many instances where the pre-Tribulation Rapture is discussed, nor the warnings associated with it, is beyond me.  Today, I want to briefly illustrate two more instances that point to this blessed event, yet the dire outcome for those who don’t believe in…

Matthew 24:7 – Don’t Be Deceived

The end of the age is coming.  Jesus warned His disciples that this world as we know it has a finite life span.  Unfortunately, through the years, Jesus’ Words have been twisted and misunderstood.  Among other disputes within the church that have arisen from this teaching is the timing of how all this will occur….

Matthew 22:29-30 – The Nature of Angels

So, what is it?  Do angels marry or not?  In the verses we’re discussing today, it would seem that they don’t. The Sadducees have confronted Jesus about the issue of marriage and divorce.  These are the seemingly secular religious rulers, if we can call them that.  They were part of the Jewish Sanhedrin along with…

Matthew 19:28 – Ruling & Judging

A time is coming when Jesus will sit on His throne in Jerusalem.  The nations of the earth will no longer go their own way to follow any god but Him; the peoples throughout the world will bow down and worship the King of kings.  Jesus will rule and reign, and He will bring peace. …

Exodus 2:3,10 – What Moses Represents

Certain incidents in the Bible often foreshadow other events yet to come.  This idea comprises the concept of typology.  Typology is a symbolic representation, usually showing something in the Old Testament in one manner to portray what will happen in the New Testament. An familiar example of typology may be the Exodus of the Hebrew…

Genesis 47:20-21 – Serfdom

Lord Acton in the 1800s famously said, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”  This has always been true since man first sinned, and always will be true until the Lord eradicates sin upon the earth. In the passage in Genesis 47:13-26 that describes Joseph’s work on behalf of Pharaoh in the midst…

Matthew 13:42-43- Harvest Time

God will prevail upon this earth.  Sometimes it’s difficult to remember this.  We see wickedness all around us, and as times grow dark, we may experience it personally.  All too often Christians in America think we’ll be shielded from what those in other countries face.  But why should we?  Are we not all brothers and…

Genesis 15:4-5; 16:7,10 – Angel of the Lord

The ancient Israelite understanding of God was different from what it is today.  Religious Jews since the time of Jesus have actually rejected what their ancestors believed and knew about Yahweh.  Since Jesus came, the Jews have clung to the Shema, Deuteronomy 6:4: “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one” and…

Genesis 12:2-3 – God’s Promise to Israel

The prophetic Word that God gives Abram in Genesis 12:2-3 is one of the most significant in the entire Bible: “And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him…
