Jesus came to fulfill what Israel failed to achieve

*I’ve been doing more personal studying of late, and wanted to get some thoughts written down and saved: those of my own and some ideas from a few others. I’m also praying about making some major changes concerning the blog. More about that later.  It’s interesting that God, under the old covenant, referred to Israel […]

Jesus the Master is Returning: Who is Taken and Who is Left?

This is a very good over-all message, for Praise God, our Master will be returning! But what especially interested me was the author’s explanation to a question I’ve long wrestled with concerning who will be left and who will be taken. While I know the most taught view in the west, at least in the […]

The Believer’s Resurrections

Something I’ve been pondering over since reading it recently: 24 Very truly, I tell you, anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life, and does not come under judgment, but has passed from death to life. 25 “Very truly, I tell you, the hour is coming, and is now here, […]

Abraham’s Inheritance: Misunderstood

Good message They say, “where there’s a will, there’s a family” and boy has there been a family dispute over the inheritance of Abraham. Millions and millions of the relatives of Ishmael and Isaac believe they are the rightful heirs. The Arab-Israeli conflict is the longest running dispute in the hands of the United Nations. […]

Behold! The Bridegroom Cometh – and the Wise & Foolish Virgins

Reading Matthew 25 again today, the foolish and wise virgins once more got my attention, “Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 Those who were foolish took their […]

Revelation: The Testimony of Jesus

(See Revelation 12) The Key to the Book of Revelation  by Chip Brogden Along with the revelation of God’s Eternal Purpose concerning Christ, there is a corresponding testimony that is declared. Scripture refers to this as The Testimony of Jesus. “And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with […]

Do You Consider Yourself A Christian?

Excellent message at ForTheLoveOfHisTruth. Below you can read the introduction but I hope you will take a few minutes and click on the link and read the entire message, and also listen to the wonderful audio sermon included in the post. quote, There are professing believers on social media that say they refuse to be […]

Israel: Spiritual or Literal

“The European cuckoo bird is known as a “brood parasite.” The female lays her eggs in the nests of other smaller birds, like the reed warbler. In turn, they unwittingly incubate, feed, and raise the young impostors-usually at the expense of their own genuine offspring.” A somewhat strange introduction, but an interesting message. Quote, The […]

Netanyahu Describes Israel as “A Light to the Nations” ……

…but JESUS the CHRIST (MESSIAH) said that HE Was the Light of The World (Good message at Soul Refuge)  

The danger of Christians “standing with Israel”…or any other nation!

Last evening I left a comment under another post which concerned a topic which has puzzled me for some time. It concerns the State of Israel:  I realize many if not most Christians strongly believe what we see as ‘Israel’ today, is a fulfillment of prophecy. But if you read closely in the old testament, […]

Romans 11: 25-26

Adam and I have been discussing a few verses in Romans under another post (see here)…primarily Romans 11: 25 and 26; For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of […]

Unbelieving Israel – Victim or rebel?

Powerful message from Peter Cohen at Messianic Good News The Sunday Times published an editorial (17 June 2007) by the Chief Rabbi of South Africa, Warren Goldstein, entitled, “Look again: Israel is the victim, not the root of all evil” (reposted here at The Jewish Federation of Pinellas Fl.). In the sub-title to his article Goldstein […]

The Laughter of the Bible

While browsing through a list of classic sermons this evening, I came upon this one on the topic of laughter by T. DeWitt Talmage (1832-1902). I liked it. Serious though it is, there were certain points made by this old preacher which made me smile, while other points brought tears to my eyes.    Anyway, […]

Is National Israel God’s Chosen And Holy Nation?

Excellent message. (HT) quote, Let’s Make It Simple: All believers, regardless of race, are the children of Abraham (Gal. 3:7, 26-29). All believers, regardless of race, are God’s chosen children (Eph. 1:3-6, Titus 2:11-14). All believers, regardless of race, are a royal priesthood, a holy nation, “a people belonging to God” (1 Peter 2:9). All […]

John MacArthur tries to retreat from some of his most challenging language

Interesting post by Adrian Warnock at Patheos Over at Tim Challies, MacArthur has been interviewed about the criticism that has surfaced of him following the Strange Fire conference. This is interesting for two reasons. Firstly because of his brief summary of his case, and secondly for an attempt to rein in some of what to […]

Description of the last Judgment

Recently I read that the words spoken by Jesus below, found in Matthew 25, are the only passages in the Gospels (so the author believed) which describes specifically what will occur at the final or last judgment: 31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will […]

Praying in Tongues

Good post, and what looks to be the beginning of an interesting discussion at Cerulean Sanctum Speaking in tongues. Just mentioning tongues gives many people pause. Tell others you speak in tongues and the stares come out. Talk about glossolalia (the fancy term for speaking in tongues) in polite company (heck, any company) and you’ll […]

Who is the Israel of God in Galatians 6:16?

As we previously looked at the topic ‘Who is Israel’ earlier, I thought this teaching from John at Aletheuo might be of interest to someone. quote, 1 ”I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that […]

True Israel

Spent this evening reading at a few of my favorite web sites and wanted to share one excellent teaching I came upon written by Hershel Lee Harvell Jr. Reformed on the Web I believe that the reading of Old Testament passages in a literalistic way is the result of a wrong hermeneutic. To be sure, […]

Cessationism and Strange Fire

Excellent, well thought out rebuttal from Andrew Wilson at Theology Matters to Tom Pennington’s case for cessationism given at the recent ‘Strange Fire’ conference It’s good to face robust challenges to what you believe, every now and then. The more deeply held a belief is, the harder it is to think it through afresh, and the more […]

“…God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie”

“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:” II Thessalonians 2:11 And for this cause – Because they choose error, or their hearts love that more than they do truth. The original reason then of their embracing and adhering to the system was not an arbitrary decree […]

Why I am NOT a Christian Zionist

Interesting (2) part article by Craig Nielsen From part (1)- Anyone reading the articles posted on this blog will be able to see for themselves the reasons why I am not a believer in the very popular heresy known as Christian Zionism, but for the sake of those who don’t have the time to look […]

As in the Days of Noah

But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,  And knew not until the flood came, and […]

Christians Trained To Convince Churches To Re-Interpret Scripture’s Gay Boundaries

There was a time, and not that long ago mind you, I would have thought this was ludicrous. But sadly, the times, they are a-changing folks. Who knows where this may lead in today’s crazy (secular AND Church) world? For the last 20 years I’ve sat back and watched while Jesus’ teachings on the most […]

Will there be a third temple built in Jerusalem? by Hershel Lee Harvell Jr.

The purpose of this short article is to examine the question: Will there be a third temple built in Jerusalem? First, I want to make it very clear that I am not writing this because I haven’t studied Dispensationalism and therefore don’t know the system, like I ought, in order to make an informed conclusion […]

Bill O’Reilly is Killing Jesus – claims Jesus died over taxes

(HT) Didn’t know if I should laugh or cry over this article concerning O’Reilly’s latest claim. Guess it’s just a case of Bill talking about something he doesn’t have a CLUE about.   And folks like O’Reilly claim to be Christians…I mean, come on! Even I knew better then this before coming to Christ!  “I’m […]
