The End Times According To Ezekiel, Part 4

Published: September 3, 2014

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.

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

We have now come to Ezekiel 38, the battle between Israel and a coalition of Moslem nations that comes on the threshold of Daniel’s 70th Week and will kick off the End Times in earnest. We’ll review the 2600 year old prophecy in light of recent world events.

The End Times According To Ezekiel, Part 2

Published: September 3, 2014

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

As I said in part one of our study, Ezekiel ignored all of the post exilic period, the First Coming, and the subsequent 1900 year diaspora in his book, skipping from Jerusalem’s destruction in 586 BC all the way to the regathering of the Nation in 1948.

The End Times According To Ezekiel, Part 1

Published: September 3, 2014

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Ezekiel was from the tribe of Levi and was trained as a priest. No doubt He would have become one had his life not been abruptly interrupted. In 597 BC he and about 10,000 others were taken captive to Babylon in the 2nd siege of Jerusalem.

Rapture? Which Rapture?

Published: August 31, 2014

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Among Christians who believe there will be a rapture of the Church, the great majority of us are convinced it will precede the end times judgments. This position is commonly called the pre-tribulation rapture.

Those who reject the pre-trib view are either mid-tribulation,

The Islamic State, A Sample Of Things To Come?

Commentary by Jack Kelley

Like most students of prophecy I’ve been watching events in Iraq for the last several weeks and wondering what they mean. And like most writers on the subject, I’ve been silent because I haven’t been sure that what’s going on is Biblically relevant. After all,

What Tastes As Sweet As Honey But Turns Your Stomach Sour?

Published: August 20, 2014
Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me once more: "Go, take the scroll that lies open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land." So I went to the angel and asked him to give me the little scroll. He said to me, "Take it and eat it. It will turn your stomach sour, but in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey." I took the little scroll from the angel's hand and ate it. It tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it, my stomach turned sour. (Rev. 10:9-10)

OSAS And The Church In Sardis (Rev. 3:1-6)

Published: August 17, 2014

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

I keep getting questions from people who wonder if Rev. 3:5 denies OSAS. Usually these questions come from folks who believe in OSAS but have had Rev. 3:5 used against them by those who don’t. They write in hoping I’ll have an answer that will confirm their belief and that they can also use to defend it the next time they are confronted with this verse.

Who’s Laughing Now?

Published: August 5, 2014
It used to be that the world laughed at Christians for our beliefs. Now I think it's time to return the favor. I say that because it's utterly laughable what non-believers are running after in their increasingly futile effort to deny the existence of God.

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.

More On The Millennium

Published: July 10, 2014

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The recent re-posting of my article on Restoring Planet Earth has sparked some new interest in the Millennium. Many people find it hard to understand how such a seemingly perfect beginning could deteriorate into a massive rebellion at the end. The simple answer is “natural man” but let’s take a more comprehensive look.

Four Lessons From Jonah

Published: June 18, 2014

Commentary by Jack Kelley

For being only four chapters long, the Book of Jonah packs quite a punch.  Jonah was called by God to take a message to Nineveh (modern Mosul in Iraq) but ran away instead. He thought he could escape on a boat bound for Tarshish,

Israel And The Church. Follow Up
