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
The Next Full Moon
As I was up before sunrise this morning, I gazed at the full moon in the western sky - the last full moon of winter. I could not help but think of the next full moon, the first of the spring season marking the coming of Easter. My mind went back two thousand years and … Continue reading The Next Full Moon
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
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?
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
The Bible And Social Issues
It would be impossible to cover every social issue in 700-900 words, so we will start with the hot Supreme Court topic, abortion, and see where that leads us. Abortion. God is the creator of all life (Genesis 1; John 1:3; Acts 14:15, 17:24). So, we must ask, does life begin at birth, conception, or … Continue reading The Bible And Social Issues
America, God’s Face Is Against Us
Mass shootings have been all over the news in recent weeks. The leaked Supreme Court papers are also in the news every day. Mass shootings and abortion are closer than most people think. When you break both down to the core, they are a disregard of human life. I went to the list provided on … Continue reading America, God’s Face Is Against Us
Puzzle Pieces – Russia, Israel, Ukraine.
Questions keep rolling into my mailbox. Over the last few weeks, the most asked question is - Does this Russia/Ukraine thing have anything to do with Bible prophecy? The short answer is - Indirectly yes. For the long answer, one needs to turn to Ezekiel chapters 38-39. Because names of nations change over the years, … Continue reading Puzzle Pieces – Russia, Israel, Ukraine.
