Battle Fields and Harvest Fields

I once sat through a sermon where the preacher got the message of Joel 3:10 wrong. He taught Joel was telling “the Church” to change their farming tools into weapons of war. He mentioned he knew this was the opposite of what is said in Isaiah 2:4, but he saw what is happening in the world today as […]

Dreams Can Take Flight

Mark 9:23  Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. It all started over 100 years ago in a bicycle shop in Dayton, Ohio. Two brothers, with the unlikely names of Wilbur and Orville, both self-taught engineers lacking high school diplomas and formal education, dreamed of the […]

My Journey Into Fulfilled Eschatology

I was a Dispensational Futurist for many years before changing my position to Fulfilled Eschatology. As a result, I fully understand how attending a Futurist church can program a person to think a certain way about “end time” events.

Jesus Can Do So Much With So Little

The Plan for the Journey Home

Psalms 16:11  Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures forevermore. A journey of 1,000 miles begins with one step…at least that’s what one unknown traveler said. But, with all due respect, he was wrong. Even the AAA Motor Club will tell […]

The Comings of God

Question: Jesus said He would come again to bring judgment against those who rebelled against His New Covenant. How is this “coming” to take place and when is it to happen? Answer: These questions can be answered by looking at Old Testament examples of God “coming” in judgment. The Old Testament “comings” include: (1) judgment due to […]

Repentance Causes the Messiah to Draw Near

The Jews believed that repentance caused the Messiah to draw nigh. John the Baptist, a Jew, was sent as the forerunner to the Messiah, Jesus. What was John’s message? Repentance! Jesus’ message paralleled John’s. He taught: “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mar […]

Hope Built on Facts

The fulfillment of the Bible’s prophecies authenticates the omniscience and the omnipotence of God. It does this is by showing how various events foretold in the Bible were precisely fulfilled during the exact time period for which they were described. This biblical witness gave the Early Church the confidence they needed to promote their God […]
