Jesus Never Promised To Take Us To Heaven When He Returns!

That’s probably the first time many of you have heard that or even considered it. But it’s true. Nowhere in the New Testament are we told that when Jesus returns He will whisk us off to Heaven. The scriptures tell us “the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remainContinue reading “Jesus Never Promised To Take Us To Heaven When He Returns!”

Timeline From Noah To Abraham

I like visual references like maps and charts. I made this timeline to help me get a perspective of major post-flood Biblical characters and how they may have influence their era. As you can see Noah lived 350 years after the flood and his son, Shem, lived 502 years after the flood. The timeline alsoContinue reading “Timeline From Noah To Abraham”

What Was The Riff Between Cain and Abel?

What was the riff between Cain and Abel? In a nutshell it’s the same riff between people today. In particular between the followers of Christ and the rest of the world. What is that riff? Who God says He is in the Bible verses the making of God in our own image. Abel was aContinue reading “What Was The Riff Between Cain and Abel?”

Really, What Is New Testament Worship? (2)

“The woman said to Him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.”Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worshipContinue reading “Really, What Is New Testament Worship? (2)”

Biblical Healing (5): The Works of God Revealed

“Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. I must workContinue reading “Biblical Healing (5): The Works of God Revealed”

Biblical Healing (4): Pauls Thorn

There are some doctrines so steeped in tradition that seeing it any other way takes a concerted effort. Usually most won’t ever change a tradition and others will only change when there’s no where else to turn. I’m speaking primarily on healing, but it goes for any teaching. Only when life or death hangs inContinue reading “Biblical Healing (4): Pauls Thorn”

The Divine Order of the End Times

God has a divine order for the return of Jesus. He has given us explicit signs to look for before Jesus will come. It’s not as complicated or as confusing as often presented. Yet, with all that the Bible says about the end times, many can’t defend their position why they believe what they believe.Continue reading “The Divine Order of the End Times”

Eat The Hay And Spit Out The Sticks

“Wisdom shouts in the streets. She cries out in the public square. She calls to the crowds along the main street, to those gathered in front of the city gate: ‘How long, you simpletons, will you insist on being simpleminded? How long will you mockers relish your mocking? How long will you fools hate knowledge?Continue reading “Eat The Hay And Spit Out The Sticks”

Biblical Healing: (2) Healing And The Atonement

In our “Introduction to Healing,” we asked if healing was in the atonement. Today, we want to explore that question. If Jesus paid for our healing in the atonement, then we have a legal right to it, and He has a legal right to perform it. It also means that it is God’s will forContinue reading “Biblical Healing: (2) Healing And The Atonement”
