A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Here’s a brief summary of the history and prophecy concerning these three neighbors of Israel who always seem to wind upon the wrong side of things where the Lord is concerned.

Those Who Claim To Be Jews, But Are Not

Published: January 15, 2015
With the worldwide rise in anti-Semitism, it's interesting to see all the different groups who claim that they are really Israel and the legitimate heirs to God's promises. The first and largest of these is the Church.

The Rapture, A Secret Jesus Couldn’t Reveal

Published: December 28, 2014

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

I am frequently asked if the rapture is such an important event for the Church, why didn’t Jesus say anything about it? Our Q & A format doesn’t lend itself to a comprehensive answer to such a complex question, so here’s the whole story.

The Coming Leader

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will destroy the mighty men and the holy people. He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior.

A Feature Article By Jack Kelley

Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction (2 Thes 2:3).

No One Knows The Day Or The Hour

Published: November 5, 2014

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

There are two popular phrases people use in connection with the End Times to discourage speculation about just when the Rapture might take place. One is “like a thief in the night”, and the other is “no one knows the day or the hour”.

Let There Be Light

What was the length of each creation day? Why have the Jews always begun their day at sunset? When did time begin?

A Spirit Of Fear

Published: October 29, 2014

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love (1 John 4:18).

There’s lots of fear mongering going on today.

Animal Sacrifice In The Millennium

Published: October 15, 2014

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Every time I answer a question on animal sacrifices in the Millennium, I get more questions about them. If Jesus died once for all time, the righteous for the unrighteous, they ask, then are we sure that animal sacrifices will again be a part of the daily routine,

The Return Of The Medes

Published: October 12, 2014

Commentary by Jack Kelley

See, I will stir up against them the Medes, who do not care for silver and have no delight in gold. Their bows will strike down the young men; they will have no mercy on infants nor will they look with compassion on children.

The Coming Blood Moons

Published: October 2, 2014

Commentary by Jack Kelley

I first wrote about the so-called blood moons five years ago.  At the time a video series on the subject was being heavily marketed as revealing the date of the second coming. By now most people no longer believe that, but the series is still popular and since we’re getting close to the next one’s arrival I’ve been getting questions about the blood moons again.

What Does The Bible Say? The Sabbath Year (Shemitah)

Published: September 28, 2014

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The weekly Sabbath is one of the foundations of the Torah (the first five books of the Bible, often called the five books of Moses). The Israelites were commanded to rest from their labors on the seventh day of the week, because in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth,

The Creator’s Story

Published: September 25, 2014
The first book of the Bible is actually a compilation of the stories of 10 men and their Creator. It is my firm conviction, from archaeological discoveries and other extra-biblical sources, that Moses had the written accounts of these men in his possession when he compiled them into the book of Genesis. Next week we'll begin telling the stories of these 10 men as if from their own lips. But first ... The Creator's Story.

Commentary by Jack Kelley

I was recently asked to respond to seven reasons why Jews reject Jesus as the Messiah. These seven reasons have been featured on a Jewish “anti-missionary” website as part of their effort to discourage Jewish conversions to Christianity. In part one I responded to the first four of these reasons,

Then You Will Know That I Am The Lord

Published: September 16, 2014

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Some form of the phrase “then you will know that I am the Lord” appears in the Book of Ezekiel 50 times. Prior to the Babylonian captivity (605-535 BC) the Lord used it most often in the context of judgment, whether against Israel’s leaders (Ezekiel 11:10),

Why Do Jews Reject Jesus As The Messiah? Part 1

Published: September 13, 2014

Commentary by Jack Kelley

In the last decade or so, a number of Jewish “anti-missionary” ministries have cropped up to combat the increasing conversion of Jewish people to belief in Jesus as the Messiah of Israel. They have come on the scene because in the words of one of these ministries,

The End Times According To Ezekiel, Part 7 Conclusion

Published: September 3, 2014

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

We’ve come to the conclusion of the Millennial portion of the Book of Ezekiel, and of the book itself. After devoting 7 chapters (40-46) to the Temple and its offerings, the Priests and the Prince, the final two chapters (47-48) discuss the land in general,

The End Times According To Ezekiel, Part 6

Published: September 3, 2014

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

From our last installment, we can see that Ezekiel’s Temple will be much different from either previous one in both appearance and function. The Holy Place will have no Menorah, no incense altar, and no table of show bread. A wooden altar will be its only piece of furniture.

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

So far in this study, we’ve seen the prophecies of Israel’s latter-day rebirth. We’ve learned that they would first appear again in unbelief, thinking that they had brought themselves back to life and that they themselves had built, populated, and defended their homeland.
