Things developing in Israel over the last few weeks and especially on Easter must make one wonder if the end time events prophesied in the Bible will take the world by surprise very soon. The Times of Israel posted headlines throughout the day on Easter Sunday. The times listed are Israeli local times. 1:07 am … Continue reading Are We Closer Than We Think?
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 I)
Last week's Preacher's Point talked of Biblical prophecies yet fulfilled. Space only allowed us to reach the start of the Tribulation Period. This seven-year period is the topic of this week's column. The Tribulation begins when the Antichrist signs a covenant with many nations concerning the city of Jerusalem and the Jewish people (Daniel 9:27). … Continue reading The Tribulation (Part I)
The New Year is upon us! This time of year is when people make resolutions to lose weight, stop undesirable habits, spend more time with family, and many other things they wish to change about life. It is also the time of year when prognosticators predict what is coming for the upcoming year. I am … Continue reading What’s Coming
The Fig Tree
Last week's Preacher's Point showed signs indicating the Second Coming of Christ. We left the most significant sign for this week - Israel.

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?
Five Red Heifers
What possibly could be the third most significant headline regarding prophecy in roughly two thousand years may have occurred last week. Five red heifers arrived in Israel on Thursday, September 15, 2022. You are probably thinking, "There must be livestock in transport every moment of every day someplace in the world. What makes these five … Continue reading Five Red Heifers
End Times – Really?
Are we in the end times? I reckon the answer may depend more on someone's definition of "end times" than on what is happening in the world. But this column will look at Bible prophecies and current events. In Acts 2, Peter announces the fulfillment of a prophecy from the book of Joel. The prophecy … Continue reading End Times – Really?
The Great Ramping Up
Scattered throughout the Bible are the words of the Prophets. Some are blatant and obvious, like the books of Daniel and Revelation; other prophecies are more obscure such as Psalm 83. Jesus tells us of the future several times during His ministry. His most lengthy and detailed discourse of future events is called the Olivet … Continue reading The Great Ramping Up
