Easter time is upon us. The big day is less than two weeks away. Each year, as Easter approaches, I wonder about Christians and their attitude toward Christianity. I have these thoughts because Easter makes Christianity an all-or-nothing proposition, and many claiming Christianity try to walk in the middle of the road. Allow me to … Continue reading Is Easter Important Or Meaningless?
The End Never Comes
Last week Preacher's Point ended with the battle of Armageddon and the Second Coming of Christ. Most people believe Armageddon is the end of the world, but that is not the case. This universe we now live in will melt with fervent heat a little more than a thousand years after Armageddon (2 Peter 3:10-13). … Continue reading The End Never Comes
The Tribulation (Part II)
Two weeks ago, we started looking at future events according to Biblical prophecy. Last week, the main topic was the coming Tribulation Period. We made it through the fifth trumpet. There are twenty-one judgments divided into three sections - seals, trumpets, and vials. This week we will start with the sixth trumpet. The sixth trumpet … Continue reading The Tribulation (Part II)
What Is Armageddon?
A word used too loosely nowadays is Armageddon. It seems like anything big or significant and unpleasant is some sort of "mageddon" event, such as snowmageddon and retail-mageddon. The recent threat of nuclear war has brought the idea of Armageddon happening to mainstream thinking. A global nuclear war would be the worst event thus far … Continue reading What Is Armageddon?
The Probable Sequence of Events.
Often people will grab a current event and claim it is something from the book of Revelation. Anything in Revelation from chapter four on is, at this present time, still future. Therefore, when someone claims that a current event is Revelation (choose chapter and verse), well, unless we just went through Revelation 4:1-2, it is … Continue reading The Probable Sequence of Events.
Why Satan Wants To Rip You To Pieces.
All around us, there is a spiritual battle raging. Demons and angels are seen occasionally, but they are present, almost constantly. Before we go further with this thought, let me clarify something. When we do something bad, it is not Satan's fault. He or a demon may nudge us in the wrong direction, but we … Continue reading Why Satan Wants To Rip You To Pieces.
What Manner Of Person?
2 Peter 3:10-12 speaks of the end of the world. The phrase, "The elements shall melt with fervent heat," is mentioned twice within the three verses. Verse 10 sets the stage by giving a vivid description of the end of time, "But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; … Continue reading What Manner Of Person?
The Pre-Tribulation Rapture
We are just past the halfway point of 2020, and if nothing else happened this year, it would still go down as one of the strangest years in history. The best word to describe it, I believe, is "uncertainty." People are uncertain about their health, the economy, social reform, the nation, the world. Christians around … Continue reading The Pre-Tribulation Rapture
The Spirit Of Antichrist
The Bible talks of a day yet to come commonly called "The Tribulation Period." The Bible has several names for this seven-year period that plays havoc with the earth, including, "The time of Jacob's trouble," "the Day of the Lord," among others. It is also known as Daniel's seventieth week. The main character on earth … Continue reading The Spirit Of Antichrist
