Colossians 1:20 – Reconciliation

Let’s connect something that Paul says in the amazing first chapter of Colossians with our reading today from Isaiah.  We can do that because the Scriptures are an integrated compilation overseen by the Holy Spirit with no contradictions.  They maintain consistency from the first to the last.  God breathed into them and we can trust…

Isaiah 26:20 – Isaiah’s Pre-Trib Rapture Passage

There are many who dispute the notion of the pre-Tribulation Rapture of the church.  So be it.  They claim to find verses here and there in the Bible that support their various positions, be they mid-Tib, pre-Wrath, post-Trib, or no-Rapture.  I respectfully disagree and declare that God is so clear in His communication to the…

Ephesians 1:9 – The Mystery of His Will

In Scripture, we’re told that there are multiple mysteries of God.  The classic definition of a Biblical mystery is that it’s something which is concealed in the Old Testament and revealed in the New.  One of the most amazing mysteries to which we’re introduced in the Bible is the joining of Jews and Gentiles into…

2 Corinthians 4:18 – Things That Are Unseen

What we see happening around us in the world can be overwhelming. There are times it takes our breath away. We ask, “How could this possibly happen?” “Is anyone in charge?” “What next?” It seems that from one week to the next, things get worse. “Is there no end to this?” “Can’t we get back…

1 Corinthians 15:24 – Then Comes the End

Can you imagine life without death?  Such a day is coming.  Because Christ lived, died, and rose again, the end of death is a reality otherwise impossible.  It’s been rightly said that the entirety of the Christian faith rests on the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  He is an historical figure.  He was a man wise…

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 8-18-21: Last Trumpet or Pre-Trib Rapture?

It’s been a while since I did a straight-up teaching on the Pre-Tribulation Rapture. Because of the varying views on the Rapture as to its timing, whenever I comment on the truth that the Rapture must occur prior to the 7-year Tribulation, I inevitably get messages wherever the video is posted by those who think…

Psalm 24:7 – Lift Up You Heads, O Gates!

There are many men who try their best to thwart the Lord, but all of them ultimately fail.  The Muslims are among those who believe that because of their actions, the God of the Bible – in the form of the Jewish Messiah – will be kept from fulfilling prophecy.  How foolish they are! The…

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 7-7-21 Christian Awaken-Trib-Rapture?

Within the Christian community there are currently three worldview perspectives that are being put forth as to God’s intent, and what that means for mankind. These three positions are: 1) A Great Awakening, i.e. a great revival, is coming whereby Christians will overcome evil on the earth and prepare the way for the return of…

Nehemiah 9:26 – Nevertheless

It’s astounding what God puts up with concerning this rebellious creation of His called mankind. If He wasn’t long-suffering beyond what you and I can imagine, He would have decided the human experiment had long-past reached its expiration date.  Nevertheless (the word that also happens to highlight the title of this essay today), God somehow…
