Happy New-Birth-day to Me

April 7, 1985, I asked God to “prove” He is real. My life was in shambles at the time and I saw little reason to carry on. God answered my challenge that next Friday when I was invited to an Apostolic church service for the very first time. That night the preacher spoke a message […]

The New Birth from Genesis

Genesis 1:1-5  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.  [2]  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.

(22) Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. Why “seventy times seven”? Are we to believe we should forgive every […]

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. Accordingly, I know a Futurist will think that my position is unbiblical—or even heretical—when it’s first […]
