When Jesus Went to Hell

When Old Testament Believers died, they went to a place in the center of the earth. It had two parts, "Paradise" and Hades. Here the Old Testament Believers waited on the Messiah to redeem them with His sacrificial shed blood.

Should We Confess Sins For Forgiveness After Salvation?

The verse begins with the word, "If..." This would mean that for your sin to be forgiven, it is dependent on something that you do, or do not do. It would imply a false works doctrine.... salvation based on what we do, or do not do.

Signs of Jesus' Return

Jesus held the Jews accountable for knowing their Bible, and specifically that He would come into Jerusalem on a
donkey exactly 173,880 days (483 years) from the command to rebuild Jerusalem. Dan 9:24, Ezra 1:2, Zech 9:9

When The Fire First Fell

Eventually this remarkable period, called the "Church Age," will end with the departure of the Holy Spirit and God will again go back to making Israel as His primary focus. But currently, the Church Age, in which we live, began with quite unique and powerful characteristics.

Is The Rapture In September?

Leaven in the Bible is a symbol of sin. The Jews purged their houses of leaven, in conjunction with what the sacrificial lamb had done--removed sin. This is a picture of what Jesus had done on the cross.

Was Jesus Crucified on Friday?

First, it must be noted that the Bible gives us a detailed description of every day of Jesus' last week prior to his crucifixion- VERY detailed. But there are only five days detailed in the Bible, instead of six. The missing day is referred to by Bible scholars as "The missing day." LOL! Not much imagination there. It takes a lot of (guts, pride, ego, take your pick) to say there might be something left out of the Bible narrative.

Petra - Prepared by God?

Backing up to the beginning of the Tribulation, in the wake of the post-Rapture world crisis, a fast-rising and boastful world leader promises peace to Israel (Rev 6:2, Dan 9:27, Dan 7:8). This peace offer will include the right to rebuild their long lost but beloved Temple (Rev 11:1,2), which would allow the Jews to return to animal sacrifices for the first time in almost 2000 years. Israel accepts the ungodly peace offer, against the warnings of the Torah, and ultimately pays dearly for it (Mat 24:21).

God's Patience in the Last Days

As often happens in my Bible studies (and I'm sure to many of you too), once I started my study it took a "left turn" in a direction I had never considered. I was surprised to learn that not only is God patient with all of us sinners, we're actually living in a time just before the Rapture that is called "God's patience."

Rapture and Rosh Hashanah

The Passover sacrifice had to be a male lamb without blemish to temporarily cover their sins. So it's quite fascinating that at the exact same time the Jews were slaying their Passover lambs on Mt. Moriah, just a few steps away Jesus was being sacrificed as permanent covering for our sins.

Satan's Claws/Santa's Claws

Home of the Brave?

American troops were demoralized and were easily defeated in successive battles around the Washington area. The British spent several days looting tons of merchandise from city merchants.

Islam's World Agenda

Under Shari'a law, you can not disagree with the Qur'an. Free speech is not allowed. The word "love" is not in the Qur'an. Neither is "Jerusalem." In 622 Muhammad founded the first Islamic state, a theocracy in Medina, a city in western Saudi Arabia located north of Mecca.

A Peek Behind the Name of God

The Bible and Capitalism

Our public schools have for 40 years poo-pooed capitalism and elevated socialism to the point that today surveys show an astonishing 35% of Americans, and the majority of our youth, think socialism is better than capitalism!(1) This movement defies logic, is built on lies and, worst of all, is anti-biblical. Today’s youth have a distorted […]

The Pre-Wrath Deception

Pre-wrathers believe they should plan for the worst-case scenario because if they're wrong, they conclude it won't matter. But if they're right, they'll be prepared.

This is a horrible way to live. Instead of living boldly for the Lord, knowing He is coming to take us home, the pre-wrathers worry about the Antichrist coming!

Is Repentance Necessary For Salvation?

The Greek word for "repent" is metanoia (noun) or metanoeo (verb). It means "to change your mind"and the context must determine what is involved in that change of mind. Does it mean repent for salvation (addressing non-Believers) or repent from error or sin (addressing Believers)?

Israel- A Burdening Stone For the World

Currently the United States is still standing by Israel. At least publicly. In actuality, the U.S. relationship with Israel is hanging by a thread. And as the above verse states, eventually ALL nations, including the U.S., will be against Israel. When the Rapture happens, there will be none left to support Israel. We can only pray that the U.S. won't abandon Israel until after the Rapture!

America's Spiritual Crossroads

When you look at all that’s going on in the world, keep in mind that the Bible doesn’t predict the world will get worse and worse and then the Lord comes.

Rather, the Bible says that even though it will be a time of horrible sin, the world will still be constructing houses, planting and harvesting and partying.

“For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.

When Will Jesus Return?

So I'm not worried about storing up massive amounts of food, guns, and ammo to survive and/or protect my family and survive for months or years. Neither should you.

 Yes, it's possible the electricity might go out for a few weeks like it did during an ice storm here once. So common sense says to always have plenty of firewood. 

 And it's extremely possible that there will be a new currency in the future as the current one is hanging by a thread--even though most people are unaware of that fact.

Earth--Just Before The Rapture

What can we learn?  

Before the flood, people watched Noah build the ark for over 100 years. He had to be the laughing stock of the world. Noah's detractors believed he was squandering his wealth and wasting his time building a huge boat to survive a flood. And don't forget, up until the flood it had never rained a single drop of water on the earth!

Black & White Facts

In the years that followed the civil rights legislation, giving blacks equal rights, America has tried to make up for her wrongs. Since the 1960's, billions of dollars have been spent to improve the lives of black Americans.

We've given the black community hugely disproportionate amounts of welfare, food stamps, Section 8 housing, Medicaid, poverty programs, tax credits, student loans, college scholarships and other specific advantages over whites--all meant to bring blacks up to the same standards white Americans have achieved.

To rid our guilt we've even resorted to reverse discrimination against whites through affirmative action and quotas in Governments, businesses and higher education--all to give the black American an advantage so they could "catch up."
