Luke 18:7 – Crying for Justice

To anyone whose head isn’t buried in the sand, the world is growing darker.  There are those who take the unbiblical view that God will halt this progression into greater wickedness and bring an amazing revival.  However, all one must do is read his Bible to see that in these latter days, no such event…

Matthew 22:1-14 – Parable of the Wedding Feast

As was usually the case, when Jesus spoke to the crowds, the religious rulers were right there, listening, critically examining, and scheming how to use His Words against Him.  The Pharisees and chief priests may not have understood all that Jesus implied in His parables, but they did get the point that He was often…

What a Mess!

We know that following the 7-year Tribulation the 1,000-year reign of Christ known as the Millennial Kingdom will come.  It’s going to be an amazing time for those who were Raptured into glorified bodies and will actually rule and reign with Jesus.  The world at that time and how we operate in it is the…

America’s Fate: A Mashup of Ideas – Part 4 of 4

The final essay of this 4-part series attempts to bring together the ideas presented in the first three parts.  The elements in the mashup about America’s fate come from the books The Fourth Turning, The Unseen Realm, and This Present Darkness.  They derive from secular, Biblical non-fiction, and Christian fiction concepts.  Is it any wonder…

America’s Fate: A Mashup of Ideas – Part 3 of 4

In Parts 1 and 2 of this series of essays titled America’s Fate: A Mashup of Ideas, we started bringing together some very disparate sources and ideas to try to understand how our country has gotten to the place in history that it currently stands.  We briefly discussed the secular book by Strauss and Howe…

America’s Fate: A Mashup of Ideas – Part 2 of 4

In Part 1 of these essays, we considered the book The Fourth Turning, a secular work that examines the cyclical periods of history, thus providing a framework for projecting the next era that America faces.  From every indication, based on this worldview, we have entered that period known as the Fourth Turning, one characterized by…

America’s Fate: A Mashup of Ideas – Part 1 of 4

It’s an interesting exercise to connect dots.  Those dots may come from completely different places.  They may come from secular sources as well as from religious origins.  In fact, some may come from a non-fictional wellspring while others, surprisingly, may be birthed in the realm of fiction.  All this to say that the shape we…

“There Is No Rapture”

Recently, someone publicly sent me his thoughts based on a YouTube commentary I made.  Randy was quite direct: “There is no Rapture.”  He then proceeded to outline his so-called Scriptural proofs.  In reading his reasoning, I’m fully of the opinion that Randy is completely off-base in his understanding of God’s Word and His overall plans…

Whom Will God Rapture? – A Willing Bride

What is the nature of an upcoming wedding?  Surely, it is a bridegroom who eagerly anticipates his wedding night and a bride who looks forward to a loving relationship with her betrothed.  Why then, when we consider the marriage of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, with the love of His life—the Church—that we don’t…

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…
