As I point out in “Searching for Key Words the Inductive Way,” once you focus on the available literal revelation there is in the New Testament’s eschatological record, some free connected interpretations may apply to the event…[continue reading...]
Some teach the “great city” the Babylonian harlot represents will be a physical metropolis such as Amsterdam or New York to receive the judgments and plagues described in John’s prophetic text. But a studied hermeneutic of her vision reveals there is more to the harlot’s coming than a central locale. In fact, if you look closely, you will realize that she is not a central place, and that she is already here.
A new dark age is on the horizon, and its current day proponents masquerade as “intellects.” Their “God is dead” campaign of the ’70s tunneled into the institutional “God is irrelevant” campaign of today…
Bible prophecy. Can the ordinary every day pew warming Christian understand these passages of Scripture that make up one third of the Bible’s text? “No,” so many prophetic “experts” seem to say. Their allegorical commentaries that have flooded Christian airwaves and bookstores over the years read and sound like parroted last-days Rapture squak. “Go away, don’t
If John’s revelation of Israel in Revelation 12 presents the best working picture of New Testament prophetic symbolism, the best example of key word connection is in Christ’s Matthew 24 prophesied “last days signs” and His opening of Revelation’s infamous seals.

Or was he interested in the birth of His church?The Truth About the Rapture – Eschatology’s Promise of Deathlessness
Before Jesus Christ’s return to the earth, the Bible predicts a resurrection and a rapture. Why? And what are they? This is a perplexing question the Bible answers fully. The apostle Paul writes the simutaneous events will happen at the “last” trumpet.What Would You Do if 2016 Were Your Last Full Year on Earth?
How would you fare if your judgment seat was scheduled for some time this year? What would you have to offer God for reward on behalf of your Christian life on earth? Tough question for those who haven’t given their life totally to Him. Hebrews 9:27 27 …it is appointed for men to die once and
When President Woodrow Wilson’s vision for a League of Nations was fulfilled in 1920, his idea of a world body that would protect and take care of the downtrodden and provide a united front against oppressing, bullying nations was pure. But what has happened over the years has fallen far short of his initial intentions.Sword of the Spirit
To most in the Realm of Drugolin, otherly lore lingered as mysterious legends best suited for late night hearths. The westland village of Noy couldn’t afford the apathy of its unenlightened, middleland neighbors. Its enclosing fortress walls stood as a monument to the frightening visitations it experienced, day and night. When the town’s most
