THE CREATION WAS SUBJECTED TO EVIL FOR OUR GLORY

THE DEATH OF CHRIST GUARANTEES OUR GLORY AND THE RESTORATION OF THE CREATION Christians reject the notion the creation is evil. Instead, we believe an originally good creation was cursed because our sin (originating from humans and not God) altered what was initially made good.[1] Ultimately, both ‘the sinner’ and the creation are slated for…

WHY OUR UNDERSTANDING OF CHRISTMAS CAUSED THE GREAT SCHISMS IN THE CHURCH

A short version of this article appeared this month in the Prophecy in the News Magazine.  This is the longer version.  Hope you enjoy learning about the incarnation, the debate over “how God could become a man,” and how the various formulations were at fault for the great schisms in the Church. CHRISTMAS, THE INCARNATION,…

GOD’S GLORY REVEALED IN THE PILLAR OF FIRE AND THE LITTLE PILLARS OF FIRE

This post is taken from THE REVEALING by Gary Huffman and S Douglas Woodward. THE KINGDOM OF GOD BEGINS WHEN GOD’S GLORY FILLS THE WHOLE EARTH The Triune God has revealed His glory to us in triad ways. The Father reveals Himself through the glory of the creation. The Son reveals Himself through the glory…

BEING MADE “PERFECT” JUST LIKE JESUS, THE CAPTAIN OF OUR FAITH

CHANGED INTO THE SAME IMAGE FROM GLORY TO GLORY In the Letter to the Hebrews, Paul lets us in on a secret. Somehow through the incarnation, Jesus Christ was “made perfect” through sufferings.  This occurred despite the fact that all things were made by God for Him, and He Himself (the Logos) made all things.…

ANOTHER GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT? THAT’S WHAT OLD-SCHOOL ESCHATOLOGY TEACHERS SAY

WILL TRADITIONAL BIBLE PROPHECY TEACHERS BE LIKE THE RELIGIOUS SCHOLARS OF JESUS’ DAY, AND MISREAD THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES? As any studied student of the history of eschatology knows, “The Great Disappointment” of William Miller in 1843 cautions us to NOT make bold predictions of the timing of Christ’s return. Miller’s following did the…

THE MALE CHILD OF REVELATION 12 IS THE CHURCH — TIME TO FILL YOUR LAMP

The argument that many are engaged in at the current time is whether or not the “male child” of Revelation 12:5, is Christ or the Church?  The answer, the right answer, from powerful scholars throughout the ages is simply this:  He is both. And the implications are astronomical! THE RAPTURE AND THE GLORIOUS APPEARING ARE…

SCRIPTURE TEACHES THE RAPTURE AND THE VISIBLE SECOND COMING ARE DISTINCT EVENTS – HERE IS THE EVIDENCE

The most contentious debate among evangelicals is not hard to identify.  It consists of whether or not the occurrence of the Rapture of the Church stands as a distinct event from the visible Second Coming of Christ, sometimes referred to as “The Glorious Appearing.” Indeed, even in the verse where the phrase “the glorious appearing”…

IS SANCTIFICATION NECESSARY FOR GLORIFICATION?

Today, I want to share a review of our new book, THE REVEALING,  by a friend, pastor, and great scholar of the Word, Douglas Riggs. I am honored to have his commendation and to share with you why he believes the book is essential reading for all Christians who are serious about deepening their spiritual…

THE HOTTEST TOPIC IN ESCHATOLOGY TODAY: THE REVELATION 12 SIGN & SEPTEMBER 23, 2017

THERE IS A GREAT EXPECTATION THAT THE RAPTURE MAY BE ONLY WEEKS AWAY.  WHY? It is an inevitable aspect of futurist eschatology that students of the topic seek to know the time of the return of Christ.  They do not really regard the doctrine of imminence as “binding” to whether we can or cannot assert…

THE SOLAR ECLIPSE IN AMERICA. IS IT A WARNING JUDGMENT IS COMING SOON?

 MONDAY, AUGUST 21 IS 1 ELLUL ON THE JEWISH CALENDAR. IT IS THE JEWISH DAY OF REPENTANCE. It begins 40 days of repentance leading up to Yom Kippur.  And the Great Sign of Revelation 12 is exactly 33 days later. The stars and the procession of the planets and the stars were intended to give…
