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. Through the process of the incarnation—the experience of becoming human and living His life in a body like ours—He was enabled to be the ‘first-born’ of many brethren, “bringing many sons unto glory.” Paul refers to Jesus as “the captain of our salvation: … Read More
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 classic behavior of “selling everything and heading to the mountaintop to wait for His return.” The underlying motivation was to demonstrate a complete commitment to Christ’s Kingdom and to fully prepare for His return.
However, the followers of Miller would ultimately overcome the great disappointment. … Read More
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 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” originates (Titus 2:13), the (1) return of Christ to resurrect the dead “in Christ” and to translate the believers alive at that time appears conflated with (2) the visible return of Christ in glory at the very end of the age at the conclusion of … Read More
The following article co-authored by Gary Huffman and myself was published in the August 2017 edition of The Prophecy in the News Magazine. It is drawn from our new bestselling book, THE REVEALING: UNLOCKING THE HIDDEN SECRETS ON THE GLORIFICATION OF GOD’S CHILDREN.
In the book, we propose a very different scenario for what happens AFTER the Rapture. Instead of just “going to heaven” to be with the “Lord” and with loved ones that have gone before us, we still have an assignment. Our brothers and sisters from Judah, from Israel, and the remnant living around the world are still … Read More
