Legalizing Same-Sex Marriage Is Evidence of The Apostasy

Last Thursday the U.S. Supreme Court redefined marriage. Previously, marriage had always been restricted to a male and a female human being. But the nine justices ruled in a split decision, 5 to 4, that from now on in all fifty states same-sex couples can legally marry and will have the same equal rights as do hetero-sexual marriages. For me, this is the worst decision the U.S. Supreme Court has made in my lifetime.Granted, we Americans and much of the world have been changing in recent … [Read more...]

Will Holy New Jerusalem Be Cube-shaped?

25-city

The eternal destiny of the people of God will be holy new Jerusalem. John the Revelator informs concerning a vision he had, "I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband" (Revelation 21.2 NRSV). When will this happen? I think it will occur at the second coming of Christ. This is indicated by mention of the bride, which is the church, being made ready for her husband, who is Jesus Christ. Thus, this holy city is associated … [Read more...]

What Did Jesus Mean by “Paradise”?

When examining a particular gospel saying of Jesus, we should not only consider its immediate context but also anything else Jesus’ said about that subject or some specific word in his New Testament corpus, that is, in his entire gospel sayings. An example is Jesus’ pronouncement about the word “Paradise” to one of the two men who were crucified with him.All four New Testament gospels record that Jesus was crucified between two other men (Matt. 27.38; Mark 15.27; Luke 23.33; John 19.18). In t … [Read more...]

Nuclear Disarmament Goes to the World Court

Soon after WWII ended, the U.S. and the Soviet Union began their Cold War nuclear arms race which continued for more than a generation. From 1946 to 1958 the U.S. government detonated 23 atomic bombs as tests both above ground and underwater in the Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands located in the Pacific Ocean. The U.S. had convinced the islanders to temporarily leave their homes, telling them they could return afterwards to their land that would not suffer any ill-effects from the … [Read more...]

Will There Be Any Atheists in the Endtimes?

According to the Bible, there won't be many atheists, if any, during the endtimes. Prophecies about this are in Daniel and Revelation, the two foremost apocalyptic books in the Bible. Revelation in the New Testament actually fills in details of the endtimes framework established in Daniel in the Old Testament.Both Daniel and Revelation predict that a man will arise during the so-called endtimes who will become one of the greatest political and religious leaders in human history. Christians … [Read more...]

What Does “Your Kingdom Come” Mean in “the Lord’s Prayer”?

According to the gospels of Matthew and Luke, Jesus taught his disciples how to pray. This model prayer has been popularly called "the Lord's Prayer," with "Lord" referring to Jesus. Both Matthew and Luke provide a similar version of it, with Luke's being shorter (Matthew 6.9-13; Luke 11.2-4). Both prayers begin by addressing God as "Father." That was Jesus' favorite way of referring to God. Calling God "Father" obviously is a recognition of an relationship with God similar to what a son or a … [Read more...]

Will ISIS Become the New Assyria?

In my book, Warrior from Heaven (2009), I state that the final Antichrist will be an Assyrian. Then I cite the biblical prophecies which support this. One of the foremost is Isaiah 10.12. Concerning the endtimes, it says in the NRSV, "When the Lord has finished all his work on Mount Zion and on Jerusalem," referring to the end of his judgment of the nation of Israel, "he will punish the arrogant boasting of the king of Assyria and his haughty pride." This king boasts saying, "I have gathered all … [Read more...]

Science Is Going To Prove There Is a Heaven. Then Atheism Will Become a Relic of the Past

The book of Revelation in the New Testament (NT) indicates that by the endtimes, atheism will be a thing of the past? People living on earth will know with certainty there is a heaven. And they apparently will have good reasons for believing the God of the Bible dwells there.The Bible predicts that near the end of this age a man will come to power whom Christians have always called "the Antichrist." This title comes from 1 John 2.18, 22; 4.3; 2 Jn 1.7. The Apostle Paul calls him "the lawless … [Read more...]
