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…

Prophecy Update: Convergence Increasing

The hot word among those who watch the signs of the times is convergence.  It’s a good word.  The definition basically means the movement toward a point of conclusion.  In the case of Bible prophecy, it’s where all the disparate strands of God’s end times fragments come together for His final judgment upon the earth. …

Prophecy Update: What Is The Overwhelming Scourge?

What if we’re wrong about the overwhelming scourge that will come against Israel?  What if we’re looking in the wrong direction as to the nature of this source of trouble that will plague Israel in the latter days, and which the Antichrist will use as the means to effect or increase the seven-year covenant that…

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…

How We Limit God! — Part 1

One of the things I enjoy doing is taking what I’ve learned from my reading and my listening to various teachings and bringing it to others.  This is how knowledge and information are passed on.  In the Christian sphere, it’s how we disciple others even as we have been discipled in one manner or another….

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…

The Twitter Swamp

Most of you are familiar with the social media platform Twitter.  You may also be aware that many people communicate extremely vile things on it.  It seems that no one stops to think.  Is what I’m saying uplifting in any sense of the word?  It appears that the majority of people don’t care.  They just…

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.”

Parable of the Unmerciful Servant

Reading in Matthew 18 about the parable of the unmerciful servant made me reflect back to verses I discussed in a previous blog post.  In Romans 2:4-5, the Apostle Paul says: Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you…

Inconceivable Persecution

I was sitting in my living room in the early morning for my prayer time.  The lights were out.  It was quite dark outside. I began thinking about my brothers and sisters in Christ who are regularly persecuted in many countries around the world.  This includes the Middle East in Muslim nations, China which is…
