A Tale Of Two Brides

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Whenever I get several questions on the same subject within a few days, I assume someone is trying to give me a topic for the feature article. This is especially true if it’s unrelated to anything I’ve recently written about, as was the case this week.

A Chronology Of End Times Events

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

More and more as we get closer to the end, people want to see a time line of coming events. Questions about the order in which events will take place, the span of time between them and the likelihood of there being enough time for everything to happen in the time we have left are becoming more numerous with each passing week.

A Land of Unwalled Villages

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

I know I’m beginning to sound like a broken record by now, but there’s an enormous potential for a giant leap forward in End Times prophecy this summer, and this week we came breathtakingly close to witnessing its beginning.

Why The Rebirth Of Israel Is A Sign Of The End

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

“Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door.” (Matt. 24:32-33)

Many students of prophecy identify the Lesson of the Fig Tree in Matt. 24 as a reference to Israel. While the fig tree is often used to symbolize Israel, this is not one of those times.

Competing For The Title “King Of The North”

Commentary by Jack Kelley

“At the time of the end the king of the South will engage him in battle, and the king of the North will storm out against him with chariots and cavalry and a great fleet of ships. He will invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood.” (Daniel 11:40)

According to Daniel 11 the End of the Age would see two Middle Eastern power blocks, which he called the King of the North and the King of the South. Today, although they appear to be allies, two countries from the former Seleucid Empire, the first King of the North, are openly competing for the right to be the Bible’s End Times King of the North. They are Turkey and Iran.

Isaiah 17, An Oracle Against Damascus

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

In the past couple of years it has become even clearer that Isaiah’s prophecy of the destruction of Damascus will soon come to fulfillment, perhaps being part of the Psalm 83 scenario I’ve written about.  If so, it would explain why Syria is not included among the coalition of Moslem nations who will gather against Israel in the Battle of Ezekiel 38. Let’s review what God had Isaiah say about this.

The Battle of Ezekiel 38-39 … Part 4, Conclusion

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series The Battle Of Ezekiel 38-39

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

From our studies you can see that for the past 20 years or more the battle of Ezekiel 38-39 has appeared to be on the brink of fulfillment several times.  There have always been the same few preceding conditions left to be met.  For the most part they’ve been Turkey switching sides, the US being taken out of the picture, and Israel living in an assumed state of peace with its neighbors.

The Battle of Ezekiel 38-39 … Part 3

This entry is part 3 of 4 in the series The Battle Of Ezekiel 38-39

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Part 3 of our study begins with the first verses of chapter 39.

“Son of man, prophesy against Gog and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. I will turn you around and drag you along. I will bring you from the far north and send you against the mountains of Israel. Then I will strike your bow from your left hand and make your arrows drop from your right hand. On the mountains of Israel you will fall, you and all your troops and the nations with you. I will give you as food to all kinds of carrion birds and to the wild animals. You will fall in the open field, for I have spoken, declares the Sovereign LORD. I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in safety in the coastlands, and they will know that I am the LORD.

The Battle of Ezekiel 38-39 … Part 2

This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series The Battle Of Ezekiel 38-39

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Conditions could be falling into place for the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39.  Turkey has all but declared itself part of the Moslem coalition after years of being one of Israel’s most reliable allies.  As for Israel’s great protector the USA, our current leaders have withdrawn their support to a point where no one can say for sure how we would respond in case of an attack on Israel.  Jewish officials suspect our recent pledges of support are just empty words, meant only for public consumption.

The Battle of Ezekiel 38-39 … Part 1

This entry is part 1 of 4 in the series The Battle Of Ezekiel 38-39

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

I first began studying Ezekiel 38 in the 1980′s and have watched with great interest as our changing world conforms more and more to Ezekiel’s words.  As the time of the end draws nearer the insights we gain from the changes around us give us a better understanding of Bible prophecy in general and Ezekiel 38 in particular.  In this update of our study we’ll apply these insights to Ezekiel’s 2600 year old prophecy.
