Making Sense of the Bible

Some books you can take or leave-one way or the other, and it won't make much difference-if any. The Bible is not in that category. If you "leave" it, you've lost the most important body of information in the world-and the key to your access to heaven. If you "take" it (to be the word of God), you labor under ... read more »

Will God Bring All Sins into Remembrance?

How do you harmonize Hebrews 8:12, which says that God will remember sins no more, with Ecclesiastes 12:14, which states that God will bring every evil work into judgment? Ecclesiastes 12:14 affirms the following: "For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good or whether it be evil." The thrust of this sober ... read more »

What Does the Bible Say About the Rapture?

"In case of the Rapture, this vehicle will be unmanned." "The Rapture: the only way to fly." The preceding slogans are but two of the many circulated by folks who believe in the so-called "Rapture" theory. You see these slogans on bumper stickers, Twitter, and Facebook.

2 Thessalonians 2:3 — The Falling Away

When Paul penned his first epistle to the Christians in Thessalonica, he had spoken of the Lord's return (1 Thessalonians 4:13ff). Some of these brethren assumed that the Second Coming was imminent and so became inactive. In this letter, the apostle urges them to return to faithfulness, for the Master's return would not occur until "the falling away come first" ... read more »

Daniel’s Prophecy of the Seventy Weeks

Jesus Christ emphatically declared that the Old Testament Scriptures contained prophecies he would fulfill (Luke 24:27,44). Biblical scholars have catalogued more than three hundred amazing prophecies that find precise fulfillment in the life and labor of the Son of God. One of these predictive declarations is found in Daniel 9:24-27, commonly referred to as the prophecy of "Daniel's Seventy Weeks." ... read more »

What Happens To A Person At Death?

When the human body dies, it goes back to the dust of corruption (Gen. 3:19; Eccl. 12:7; 2 Cor. 5:1) where it remains until the "last day" of earth's history (Jn. 6:44, 54). At that point it will be raised in a new form, an immortal body (Dan. 12:2; Mt. 10:28; 1 Cor. 15:54). The human body is not "recycled" ... read more »

Jerry Falwell and the Antichrist

In January, 1999, nationally-known television evangelist, Jerry Falwell, spoke to a "pastor's conference" in Kingsport, Tennessee. One aspect of his speech was picked up by the news media and swirled into a mini-controversy. Falwell asserted that he believed "Christ could return soon," and that "the Antichrist may possibly be alive on the earth today." He went on to suggest that ... read more »

Are We Resurrected from the Dead When We Obey the Gospel?

"Are we resurrected from the dead when obeying the gospel? If we are made alive in Christ, how can we be dead and resurrected again [at his second-coming]?" Before one obeys the gospel, he is dead in sin (Eph. 2:1). To which does this refer: the physical body or a spiritual condition? It refers, of course, to our spiritual condition. ... read more »

Nahum 1:1 – The End of Nineveh

The book of Nahum begins with a somber tone - "the burden of Nineveh" - which suggests that a pronouncement of judgment is imminent. The name "Nineveh," of course, brings memories of the book of Jonah. Nineveh was the capital city of Assyria. This great metropolis is first mentioned in Genesis 10:11,12; it was founded by the mighty hunter, Nimrod. ... read more »

A Message from an Angel

In the 14th chapter of the book of Revelation, the apostle John, while exiled on the island of Patmos, sees a vision of a Lamb on Mount Zion. Though the Lamb had been slain, he now is "standing" (cf. 5:6). This most certainly is a representation of the resurrection of God's slain Lamb, Jesus Christ (cf. John 1:29; 1 Peter ... read more »
