Awaken Biblical Prophecy Commentary – Deceptively Normal

Before I get started today on this specific Commentary, I wanted to take a minute to briefly mention something else.  The Israel Guys – whom I’ve favorably mentioned at various times for their reporting on the events going on in Israel – have been promoting an Israel conference for a couple months that will take place in Nashville, TN next week beginning May 20.  The Israel Summit was scheduled to be held in the Sonesta Hotel in Nashville.  However, due to extreme pressure from the pro-Hamas crowd, the Sonesta gave in and canceled their contract with The Israel Guys, leaving the conference without a place for it to be held.

Just this morning, I received an email from The Israel Guys stating that Dave Ramsey has stepped into the breach to host this conference at his HQ event center in Nashville next week.  I wanted to simply give a shout out to Dave Ramsey for standing with Israel and enabling the conference to go on as scheduled.  Thank you, Dave!

In addition, the conference livestream can also be purchased so that people can watch it online.  I urge you to sign up and support this effort so as to also stand with Israel.  Links are in the Transcript to this Commentary on my website.

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 4-17-24 – Satanic Influence & Christian Cessationist Ignorance

There is a large swath of the church that believes in Cessationism. As GotQuestions.org tells us:

Cessationism is the view that the “miracle gifts” of tongues and healing have ceased—that the end of the apostolic age brought about a cessation of the miracles associated with that age. Most cessationists believe that, while God can and still does perform miracles today, the Holy Spirit no longer uses individuals to perform miraculous signs.

The questions I have regarding this belief are: Does this view hold water? Why would so many in the church think this is true? What are the implications in the world if Cessationism has indeed caused miracle gifts to no longer operate?

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 11-22-23 – The Warning of Israel’s Broken Glass

Those who read or listen to my preaching on this topic today are probably going to be the choir.  As you might imagine, people gravitate to Bible teachers they tend to agree with.  For instance, I’ll only listen to somebody spouting Replacement Theology nonsense if I’m researching that person; certainly not as a regular diet. …

Biblical Audio Commentary – NAR’s Falsehoods

Just when you think the falsehoods espoused by the so-called prophets and apostles of NAR – the New Apostolic Reformation – have been proven wrong enough that these purveyors of fabrications would quietly slink away, they come back as bold as ever.

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 6-7-23: A Catechism, of Sorts, on Faith

One of my objectives is to get folks to think.  The questions we should all ask are: What does Scripture say?  What are the implications when we look at all sides of certain passages?  How might this affect what we’ve been led to believe simply because someone else said it and declared it true?
