General Prophecy

So Where Is He?

This is a revised version of the question found in 2 Peter 3, where the “mockers” statement was recorded by Peter over 1900 years ago. Yet in varying forms this question is still being asked today. But we should also note that sometimes it is not being asked because some see the whole question as irrelevant.

Real Authority – Not in Moscow, or D.C.

Salvation in the Coming Time of Tribulation

Many believers do not understand that the purpose of the coming period of tribulation is to save people; first Israel, but also multitudes of gentiles. God doesn’t need 7 years to judge people, but time is needed for the gospel to be given out and for people to ponder and respond. Salvation is God’s great desire.

Prophecy is Still Important

In the past two months I have had the opportunity of opening the Word of God at a couple of prophecy conferences. I was told by numerous individuals that it had been years and years since such a conference was held. And they said that they just couldn’t understand why prophecy conferences are almost non-existent in the American church today. Sadly, their observation is accurate as the absence of prophecy conferences is almost universal in the American church.

Keeping an Eye on Europe

In biblical prophecy, Europe plays an important role in end time events. It is the area where much of the old Roman Empire existed. And today it is one strategic place where the political pot of globalism/nationalism is boiling.

Begin with the End in Mind

The above title comes from a chapter title in Stephen Covey’s #1 national bestseller, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.”  While Covey’s point was really very important, there is something of much greater significance to his point, far beyond what Covey likely had in mind. And I want to look at that.

The Coming “Big Bang” (2 Peter 3:3-14)

The Apostle Peter adds much detail to how this earth will come to an end. He points out that in spite of the general “agnosticism” that will exist about prophetic events, in His timing God will bring to an end the heavens and the earth in preparation for the creation of a “new” earth and universe.

Ezekiel and the United Nations (Ezekiel 35-36)

The intense hatred for Israel among the nations of the world almost defies explanation. But Ezekiel does explain the situation including the truth that God will not be abandoning His chosen people; and that there will be intense judgment of those who “curse” His people.

The Star and the Sign

The Christmas “star” is a staple of our Christmas story and celebrations. But just what was it? Was it really a star? Was it an alignment of planets? This article suggests that it was none of these things and that it will appear again at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to the earth.

Life After Death for the Believer in Christ

The Scriptures have very clear, definitive declarations about what happens to the believer in Jesus at the death of that believer. It is a comforting truth that God has given us about our immediate arrival in the presence of Jesus at death.

Life After Death for the Unbeliever in Christ

The Bible is also clear about the fate of the unbeliever at death. It is not, however, a comforting doctrine. But the truth is given so that the unbeliever might become a believer in Jesus and not experience the really terrible fate of those who do not believe.

Prophecy and the Problem of Pain

Pain, suffering and trials are very much a part of life in this world. And while no one escapes these things, God’s prophetic word has a unique place in assisting the believer in Christ to see things with greater clarity.

It’s Not Here But It’s Coming

Paul wrote to the believers in Thessalonica not to be anxious or afraid because of some false teaching that had come their way. He gives reasons why these believers have not entered the “day of the Lord.”

Perspectives on Coming Elections: Short Term and Long Term

Believers often become frustrated, depressed and angry over events in their country, and that is only increased when elections don’t go well from their perspective. But four important reminders are given from the viewpoint of Daniel that should prove a helpful reminder.

Heresy, False Teaching and Mal Couch

Mal Couch is with Christ, but when on earth he had a deep concern (as did the apostles) for the growth of false doctrine. The fact is that false doctrine will flourish in the future; and will explode during the days of the tribulation.

MTD and the Church in 2018

The church in North America is badly infected with MTD and it likely going to get worse in 2018. This spiritual disease is now so rampant and pervasive, that the spiritual health of the church will most likely continue to decline noticeably. Unless things change dramatically in the church, 2018 will not go well for the Body of Christ. While we do not want to be unduly pessimistic, we really need to be realistic.

What is “Covenant Theology” (And Should We Care)?

For many the above subject is in the category of “how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.” In other words, it is of no real value or concern and should be filed away in the “Who Cares” folder. But for those who want to know what the Bible teaches, the theological system that you embrace is quite foundational and therefore quite important.

What is “Dispensational Theology” (And Should We Care)?

For many believers, interpreting the Scriptures according to Covenant Theology or according to Dispensational Theology is of very little concern.  After all, Jesus will love me whatever system I adhere to. But it actually does matter which system of theology we get on board with.  It will determine where we end up on many important biblical and practical issues.

Donald Trump and Abraham

I just returned from Israel where I went to the future site of the United States embassy in the Arnona neighborhood of Jerusalem. In a nice, but unspectacular setting, just south of center Jerusalem, the USA will establish its official diplomatic presence in May, 2018. (Though a permanent embassy will be built in the months ahead). When I went, it was a sunny, quiet day there, with the breeze blowing gently. Very pleasant. But, in contrast to that tranquil setting, the diplomatic storm that rages around this site, and the action taken by Donald Trump, is anything but tranquil.

How the World Will End

Recently there was a mini-TV series that dealt with the subject of how the world will end. I have sort of enjoyed viewing their speculations because I have inside knowledge on the subject. I know how the earth will end. And none of the TV folks got it right.  I, of course, do not have the prophetic gift, but I do know someone who has it.  That someone is the Apostle Peter, a faithful follower of Jesus Christ.

Will Unbelievers be Annihilated?

In the past, the doctrine of annihilation has been taught by the Jehovah’s Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventists as well as some other groups which are usually viewed as cults.  Today, unfortunately, the doctrine has begun to invade evangelicalism. This trend does fit in well with the current heavy emphasis in so many pulpits on a God who isn’t particularly interested in judging anyone, but simply wants everyone to be happy, and pretty much guarantees that everyone will end up in heaven.

Will Some Believers Miss the Rapture?

“YouTube” has become a modern day pulpit. There seems, however, to be a special preference, among these folks, on prophetic subjects, which brings me to our present discussion.
