Having in mind to write to the Church about salvation, the Lord’s brother was prompted by the Holy Spirit to write this blistering criticism of false teachers instead. It’s as timely now as it was then.
An introduction to the book. It includes the historical setting, timing and purpose, a discussion of the four most popular methods of interpretation and a verse-by-verse commentary of chapter one. The key verse, “Write, therefore, what you have seen, what is now and what will take place later” (Rev. 1:19) divides the book into its three sections, and this study covers section one, the things John had seen.
The Olivet Discourse is sometimes called “The End Times According To Jesus”. In the Lord’s own words we’ll hear how the End Times unfold on Earth, from the Abomination of Desolation to the judgments following the 2nd Coming. Part one of three.
The Abomination of Desolation, the flight from Jerusalem, the general sequence, and clues to the possible timing of the 2nd Coming. Part 2 of our 3 part series on “The End Times According To Jesus”.
There’s a time line woven through the Olivet Discourse beginning in Matt. 24:15. It shows us exactly when events surrounding the 2nd Coming take place. In our conclusion we follow this time line to correct some major mistakes that have been made in interpreting this critical teaching.
Often called “the Hall of Faith” Hebrews 11 is a review of the Biblical heroes of the Old Testament. Their priorities were straight and their vision was clear and yet they died without receiving any of God’s promises. Only together with us would they be made perfect.
This is the greatest “rags-to-riches” story ever. From being disobedient gentiles, preoccupied with gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts, we’ve been adopted into the royal family of God, welcomed into His presence, and made joint heirs of His estate. How could it be?
These parables make up the Lord’s own view of phase one of the Kingdom, those who claim to be His followers on Earth. Some are true, some are false, some are Jew and some are Gentile, but all are sinners. Listen in as the Lord “tells it like it is” while describing us.
Did fallen angels once invade Earth? Some say these creatures took human wives and produced the unnatural offspring the Bible calls Nephilim, or fallen ones.
The Nephilim gave birth to many of our mythologies and may have taken over the pre-flood world. In fact they may have even been the primary reason God destroyed the Earth in Noah’s time.
This study explores the facts and traditions surrounding their time on Earth before and after the Great Flood and speculates on the possibility of their return at the End of the Age.
