2 Kings 22:11 – He Tore His Clothes

When was the time you learned the Word of the Lord and tore your clothes?  It doesn’t have to be a literal tearing of your garments, rather it could be the moment of greatest brokenness or understanding in your life that caused you to turn to God and confess Jesus Christ as your Savior.  You…

Is This the Start of the Psalm 83 War?

I’ll just put this out there.  If I’m wrong in thinking this, so be it.  Most prophecy teachers hold to the theory that Ezekiel’s War (Ezekiel 38-39) is the next big prophetic timeline event – aside from the pre-Tribulation Rapture, of course.  Ever since reading Bill Salus’ book: Psalm 83 – The Missing Prophecy Revealed…

Luke 21:34 – Dissipation

As Jesus continued to speak to His disciples on the Mount of Olives about the things to come, He warned of the days during the Great Tribulation, and what they would be like in Israel. The last 3 1/2 years of this most horrible time ever to come upon the earth will be particularly difficult…

Luke 21:9 – Things That Must Occur

Are we close to the return of Jesus? If we believe what He said to His disciples on the Mount of Olives, we certainly are. The parallel passage in Luke to Jesus’ conversation with His disciples in Matthew 24 starts with them praising the temple in Jerusalem and how beautiful it is.  Jesus shocks them…

Awaken Prophecy Update 4-21-21 Alien Grooming

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 4-21-21: Alien Grooming   The subject of aliens and UFOs inevitably makes churches uneasy.  Most pastors shy far from the subject because they don’t want to be seen as controversial or wacko.   Discussion Points: Types of Close Encounters Two camps regarding Close Encounters Public acceptance of aliens Continuing need for…

Luke 17:32 – Remember Lot’s Wife

There are several passages that we look at to give us a deeper understanding of Jesus’ return.  Luke 17 is one of them.  In this chapter, it’s the Pharisees who first ask Him about the coming Kingdom of God, rather than His disciples who do so in Matthew 24.  Jesus’ cryptic response is that it…

Luke 12:46 – Cut to Pieces

When I read Luke 12:35-48, sub-headed in the ESV as You Must Be Ready, the passage inevitably disturbs me.  Jesus was speaking to His disciples and relating a parable that reflected directly upon His return from heaven.  The parable deals with the master who has gone away for his wedding feast and the servants who…

Numbers 9:16 – Supernatural

The Bible is a book filled with wonders, all of which point to God.  Why is it that given all we’re shown He can do, that we still try to limit Him?  How is it that we can accept some supernatural aspects of God and His kingdom, yet are loathe to believe others?  What is…

Matthew 25:12,30 – Two More Rapture Warnings

How anyone can read the New Testament and come away not seeing the many instances where the pre-Tribulation Rapture is discussed, nor the warnings associated with it, is beyond me.  Today, I want to briefly illustrate two more instances that point to this blessed event, yet the dire outcome for those who don’t believe in…

Exodus 2:3,10 – What Moses Represents

Certain incidents in the Bible often foreshadow other events yet to come.  This idea comprises the concept of typology.  Typology is a symbolic representation, usually showing something in the Old Testament in one manner to portray what will happen in the New Testament. An familiar example of typology may be the Exodus of the Hebrew…
