Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 6-12-24 – Messiah 2030: What to Consider

Is the Tribulation a seven or three-and-a-half year period? Assuming there is a Rapture, is it pre-Trib or post-Trib? In the context of a Tribulation as described in Revelation, how does this time of Judgment impact Israel? How does it affect the church or the rest of the world? Daniel’s 70th week is a significant aspect of any end-times discussions. How does it play into how we view the nature and length of the Tribulation? A key figure in eschatological deliberations is Antichrist. What does he have to do with these considerations? When and how does he come on the prophetic scene?

These questions and more arise in the viewing of the (for now) 3-part, 7-hour presentation titled Messiah 2030.

Biblical Audio Commentary – Worst Nation Status

A friend of ours from Switzerland and I had a spirited email exchange the other day. We were “contesting” to determine which nation has done the worst damage to the world and particularly to Israel, America or Switzerland. How’s that for looking at the world through a Biblical and prophetic lens?

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 1-24-24 – Preterist Pretensions

A friend sent me a link to an online message from about three months ago in the aftermath of the October 7, 2023 atrocity of Hamas terrorists attacking Israel. In this Prophecy Update I’ll go over what the pastor said, why he’s wrong despite how self-assured he was, and discuss why it’s so hard to find common ground in the Christian community when our eschatological, i.e. our end-times, beliefs vary so widely.

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 11-29-23: Revelation 12 – Past or Future Interpretation?

About a year and a half ago I spent some time thinking about the coming Antichrist. In so doing, I considered thoughts from various Bible prophecy teachers who wrote books on the subject. My Prophecy Update titled Antichrist Ruminations was the result of my survey.

From that effort, because my article was posted on Rapture Ready, that attracted the attention of Charles (Ken) Bassett who wrote the book: Can We Know? Subsequently, Ken changed the book’s title to: God Says Count the Number 666 – Why the Church Can Discover the Identity of the Antichrist, which can be found on Amazon by that name. He then wrote a subsequent book titled: Empire of the Antichrist – Why the Antichrist Will Come from Rome, which expands his thesis.

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. …
