This week's Preacher's Point is difficult for me to write. The difficulty is that I like to stick to Biblical facts; this week is nearly all theory. The topic is something I have never preached or written about. I have only discussed this in a few private conversations. We had a guest speaker in college, … Continue reading UFO or Demon
Fixing The Church
There are seven churches listed in Revelation chapters two and three. I believe that every church, in any place or time, can point at one of the seven churches and say, "There we are." In other words, every church holds the characteristics of one of the seven churches. If we look back at church history, … Continue reading Fixing The Church
The State Of The Union
The state of America can be a short speech. One sentence will do - "The country is a mess." Our problems include inflation, abortion, crime, mass shootings, health care, Chinese spy balloons, a general lack of trust, wildfires, hurricanes, the supply chain, an ever-increasing national debt, and the list goes on. Now that several problems … Continue reading The State Of The Union
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)

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)
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)
Two weeks ago, this column pointed out that the Bible compares the signs of Christ's return to a woman in labor. Contractions start mild with a reasonable amount of time in between but gradually increase in intensity and frequency. This week we will venture into what the signs are. To list all the signs of … Continue reading The Signs
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?
When Will The Water Break?
One thing that has always surprised me is how many Christians are surprised by world events. For example, the current nuclear threat by the Russians has brought a lot of questions about Armageddon, especially if we will see the battle of Armageddon in the next few months. The answer is no. We do not know … Continue reading When Will The Water Break?
