The Day to Rejoice and be Glad

Psalms 118:24  This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. What is the “day” being spoken of here? In many church services, this verse is used to invite the believers to rejoice in the Lord. If read alone, the above verse does appear to say this. […]

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 […]

(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 […]
