21ST CENTURY EVENTS: HOW THEY’VE TRANSFORMED BIBLICAL PROPHECY INTERPRETATION

The conventional scenario of how prophetic events from the Bible will play out has changed. During the first two decades of the Twenty-first Century, dramatic developments have shaken the usual interpretation of what will happen as Bible prophecy is fulfilled.  Just like the Great London Fire of 1666 (pictured above) which caused panic and apocalyptic fervor, people around the world have been shaken by unprecedented happenings: the global pandemic, the crashing of the world economy, the new threat of nuclear war between the superpowers, and continued unrest in the Middle East which could trigger such a war.

THERE IS A RAPTURE – BUT WHEN DOES IT OCCUR? IS IT PART OF THE FIRST RESURRECTION?

A RAPTURE DEBATE BETWEEN GOOD FRIENDS

Perusing many comments on my Facebook page regarding the Day of the Lord (and the prior Hot Seat I did with Gary Huffman), I still see a number of people that say the rapture is a lie, the rapture doesn’t happen, believers that accept the doctrine of the rapture have been duped.  But is that really an accurate view of what scripture teaches?  It is one thing to argue that the rapture doesn’t happen separately from the visible return of Christ spoken of in Matthew 24, Luke 21, and Revelation 19:11-19.  It is a

A MINUTE TO MIDNIGHT – A DISCUSSION ON LIFE AFTER DEATH

Are you curious about what our life might be life after we die?  Do you believe we will have eternal life in the presence of God and the ones we love?  Why do we want to live forever?  Gary Huffman and I address these issues and many more in the book, THE REVEALING.



About ten days ago, Gary and I had the privilege to be with Tony on his show, A Minute to Midnight.  We had a very energetic and informative discussion.  I invite you to listen to the one hour interview.  Our discussion got into some engaging discussion … Read More

THE RAPTURE, REVIVING THE BLESSED HOPE, THE GREAT RAPTURE DEBATE

THE RAPTURE:  MY ONE-HOUR INTERVIEW OF DR. DOUG STAUFFER FOR PROPHECY IN THE NEWS

I’m pleased to share the two 28-minute Prophecy in the News programs I did with writer and theologian, Dr. Douglas Stauffer that I was privileged to host a few months ago.  There are many challenges in the days we face right now.  I thought it would be good to think again on the Blessed Hope of the Church and consider the scriptures where this vital doctrine is taught.  Dr. Stauffer and I would later participate in a seven hour debate (in which I served as moderatorRead More

NOPE, SORRY: DARBY DID NOT INVENT THE PRE-TRIB RAPTURE

NOPE, SORRY:  DARBY DID NOT INVENT THE PRE-TRIB RAPTURE

Some of the most viewed articles I’ve written over the past few months have dealt with the rapture.  It remains a controversy that can’t be settled among fervent believers in futurism (the belief that many prophecies, specifically those dealing with the Second Coming of Christ, HAVE YET TO TAKE PLACE).

I published this article quite some time ago, back when I didn’t have as many followers as I do today.  So I’ve updated the article with some additional comments and am sharing it again.  It should also be good to stir
