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 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)
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?

What makes these five … Continue reading Five Red Heifers
The Temple, The Ukraine, And 2022
"But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his … Continue reading The Temple, The Ukraine, And 2022
Shake, Rattle, and Roll
Last Thursday, Indiana experienced an earthquake. I have lived in Indiana for almost forty years, and this is only the second earth shaking I have felt here. Decades ago, I lived in California for three years and experienced multiple quakes, including one measuring 6.1. The shakeup Thursday was only a 3.8, but the epicenter was … Continue reading Shake, Rattle, and Roll
Benjamin Netanyahu was replaced as Israeli Prime Minister by Naftali Bennett yesterday. We will need to wait to see if the move causes any significant changes in Israel, the Middle East, or the world. We Americans, including the American church, tend to think the world revolves around us. The truth is - it does not. … Continue reading Seventy Weeks
Is Psalm 83 Near?
The Bible is full of prophecy, much of it, still unfulfilled. The most talked-about future events in the Bible are the rapture, the tribulation period, and the second coming of Christ. The signs of the second coming are also a hot topic of discussion. Yet, there is one prophecy that rarely gets noticed - the … Continue reading Is Psalm 83 Near?
King Solomon built the first Jewish Temple. When completed, a dedication ceremony took place. At the ceremony, the Hebrews made sacrifices. The Bible tells us, "the people offered sacrifices before the LORD" and that "king Solomon offered a sacrifice..." (2 Chronicles 7:4-5). The Bible does not tell us how many people came with a sacrifice. … Continue reading Bible Bloodbath
