The Kingdom of God

The phrase “kingdom of God” is used some 200 times in the Bible but much more than that in today’s preaching. Yet, in spite of its great use, rarely does a preacher/teacher define what he means by it.

Animal Sacrifices in the Coming Messianic Kingdom—Really? (Part 1)

One of the more confusing issues in biblical studies is the matter of animal sacrifices in the coming messianic (millennial) kingdom.

Animal Sacrifices in the Coming Messianic Kingdom—Really? (Part 2)

Many who believe in a coming kingdom of Jesus on the earth (the millennium) are unsure as to why animal sacrifices will be employed.
