DOES THE CHURCH REPLACE ISRAEL? SHOULD CHRISTIANS BE ZIONISTS? A NEW EPISODE OF THE HOT SEAT

And the second question vitally related to this, “Are the Ten Northern Tribes of Israel Still ‘Lost’?” The program for March 11 addresses this topic and the relationship between the Church and Israel.  Is it going to be dry?  I assure you it is more than lively, given the high energy of Douglas Krieger, the interviewee I put on The Hot Seat for 110 minutes!  Not to mention the fact that many evangelicals have grown to challenge those who call themselves “Christian Zionists.”  So, should Christians be Zionists?  Is the nation of Israel a sign of the last days?

THE ULTIMATE MOTIVATION IN THESE DARK DAYS: OUR INHERITANCE IN CHRIST… BUT WHAT IS IT?

WE ARE DESTINED TO SHARE GOD’S GLORY AS EXHIBITED IN CHRIST

Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, is the ‘‘brightness of His (God’s) glory.’’ No one else now or in eternity will alter that truth. But God has a plan for this earth and His Church that transcends what we see and hear and touch, and it includes His glory. God wants us to comprehend His plan for the Church –  all of us – because this is the ultimate motivation to ‘‘fight the good fight of faith.’’ Jesus, as the “heir” of all things, has shared His inheritance Read More

THREE DOUGS TALKING… ABOUT DANIEL AND WWIII

Within the last week or so, not only did I attend the Prophecy in the News (PITN) Prophecy Summit.  I also spent some time with Douglas Stauffer and Douglas Hamp.

PITN posted a 28 minute TV show that I did with “Bible Doug” Dr. Doug Stauffer from a few weeks back.   Here is the link to that show.  CLICK HERE.  We discussed the book of Daniel with particular emphasis on Daniel 9:24-27… the meaning of the “Prince that is to come” and the seven promises Daniel asserts about the meaning of the coming Prince. I believe that there are twoRead More

CONFESSING OUR SINS ONE TO THE OTHER — A KEY TO KOINONIA IN THE CHURCH

CONFESSING OUR SINS ONE TO THE OTHER:
A KEY TO KOINONIA IN THE CHURCH

I was very moved by this devotional examination of James 5:16 by the famous martyr Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who was hanged by Adolf Hitler when it was discovered he had plotted against him.  Thanks to Lori Riggs for bringing this to my attention.

These words amplify the concept of “solemn assemblies” that the righteous are to hold in the “last days” as asserted by the prophet Joel … but it really provides illumination on one of the core elements of the true church and the righteous remnant … Read More

Just One Verse to Prove the Pre-Trib Rapture?

JUST ONE VERSE TO PROVE
THE PRE-TRIB RAPTURE?

The Family Squabble Has Gotten Out of Control

Allow me to begin this article with one heartfelt word:  *Sigh*

There is so much debate right now between the various camps holding differing positions on the timing of the rapture, an outsider would look at the situation in the pre-millennial prophecy community and assume we are enemies rather than family.  You would think, based upon what has been said recently, we are forgetting that our adversaries are the teachings of antagonistic secular humanists, new age pantheists, and radical Muslims. That is a shame, … Read More
