The Death of Greed (Daily Devotional)

Today’s Reading: Revelation 17-8. (Context: A great, wealthy, and deprived city is described in chapter 17, called here the “great prostitute”. Then, in chapter 18, the people wail: “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great!” as God destroys the city in a single hour.)

The Coming Desolator (Daily Devotional)

Today’s Reading: Revelation 13. (Context: An extremely detailed prediction of the coming Antichrist and False Prophet.) Some of the oldest and most prominent Biblical prophecies speak of the coming Antichrist. Daniel 9:27 refers to the coming Antichrist as “the Desolator“.

The time period for the opening of the “trumpets” would likely be in the middle part of the “Great Tribulation”, in other words in year 5 or 6 […]

The Shepherd’s Wrath (Daily Devotional)

Today’s Reading: Revelation 6-7. John looks on as the seals are opened. Previous to this the Christians of all history, dead and alive, have been taken (rapture) into the throne room to look upon the greatest devastation the earth will ever see. The seals begin showing forth the great wrath of the Lamb, his hatred for […]
