Church Diagnostics: Blind Faith (Letter 2 of 7)

In case you missed it, here is the introduction to this series, as we look into the seven letters written to the seven churches in Revelation 2-3. My attempt is to harmonize the letters with Church History as well as to use it as a sort of diagnosis on today’s churches, looking at the possible pitfalls […]

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“. This term took on a two-fold meaning in the Maccabean Era, almost 200 years before the coming of Christ. Christians refer […]

The Entire History of the World (Daily Devotional)

Today’s Reading: Revelation 12. (Context: This chapter is the history of the world through God’s eyes. It is both incredibly different from normal world history, and far simpler. As far as its literary structure, it is almost like studying an ancient mythological work, perhaps similar to Homer’s Iliad. ) Personally, I love world history, especially as it relates to Biblical […]

Today’s Reading: Revelation 8-9. (Context: The opening of the “seals” in chapter 5 and 6 leads directly to the opening of the “trumpets” in chapters 8 and 9. 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 […]

God’s Riddles: Are We Nearing the End? (Daily Devotional)

Note: I traveled this past weekend to Yacuiba, which is a large, commercial city, near the Argentine border. That is why I was unable to give the “daily devotional”. God is good and a good time was had with the believers in Yacuiba, as I gave three intensive messages on “Islam and It’s Eschatology”.  Today’s Reading: Revelation 2-3. Revelation […]
