About the Last Days #2

What did the First Christians believe about the last days? Forget about the expression —the end of the planet is a long way off. It is plain, though, that the First Christians believed there was to be an end of the age (however one might take that) because that is what they asked Jesus about one day on the Mount of Olives. They were familiar with the Old Testament prophets and their view of the last days and end of this system. Peter cited Joel with clarity on the day of Pentecost. He would...


Revelation #12

And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. Now this is an ominous silence. After all the seals that had been opened before: the four horses of the apocalypse had thundered across the landscape, there’s been religious confusion, persecution everywhere, a rain of meteors—not a shower, mind you—like a rain they’ve been hitting the ground; and there’s been earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions, and signs in the heavens. And then there’s...


Revelation #10

“And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, and was sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book and to loose the seals thereof? And he looked all over heaven, and he looked all over earth, and he couldn’t find anyone that was qualified or worthy to open this book and break the seals, to look inside of it. It was only when the slain Lamb came on the scene that one was...


Revelation #9

And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals. Now this book was probably a scroll, and scrolls were usually written only on one side. You would write on the inside of a paper and you would roll up the writing on the inside. This one was written within and on the outside and was sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the scroll, and to loose the seals...


About the Last Days #1

What did the First Christians believe about the last days—the end time of man on the earth? It may not have been a lot different from what some of us believe today, as I suspect more than a few of us have been disquieted by events in the Middle East. Even if we don’t fully understand all the implications of biblical prophecy, we know that the Middle East looms large at the end time, along with serious loss of life. With the Iranian regime certain to develop nuclear weapons, and with the...


Revelation #8

After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up here, and I will show you things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit; and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a carnelian stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in appearance like unto an emerald. And round about...


Revelation #7

And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things says he that is holy, he that is true, he that has the key of David, he that opens, and no man shuts; and shuts, and no man opens[.] Thus begins the sixth of the seven letters to the seven churches in Asia in the mysterious Book of Revelation. If you haven’t got any background in this, these are found in the second and third chapters of the Book of Revelation. And what many do not understand is—they’re used to the epistles...


Revelation #6

And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write, These things saith he that has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your works that you have a name that you live, and are dead. This is from the great Book of Revelation. The speaker, the one who has the seven spirits of God, and holds the seven stars in his right hand is nobody else but the risen Christ. The letter is the fifth of seven letters written to seven churches in Asia Minor, that place you and I call Turkey, late...


Revelation #5

And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass[.] The letter is from Christ, it is addressed to each of them, and has some very important things to say. We’re in the Book of Revelation. These letters are written to real churches, in real time. They’re staffed with real people, who live in real cities, commit real sins, and do real good works. But that’s not all they are....


A Civilization Dying

What kind of people are we coming to be? And What kind of Christians might we be when we no longer govern our lives by the words of Jesus? The road ahead is long and dangerous. And our educational system has given us a generation who are governed by what? What informs us about right and wrong? Experience? It is a hard teacher, but effective. Philosophy? It is too often wrong, by its own admission. In a way, when we read the Bible, we are learning from the experiences of generations past, so...


Revelation #4

God doesn’t speak to man very often, so when he does, it pays to listen. This is one of those occasions. John was a prisoner on the island of Patmos. He was in jail, I suppose. He was a political prisoner because of the faith of Jesus Christ for the witness and the testimony he had given. And he was transported in vision, and he heard in vision a great voice behind him and he turned around and saw someone who was so awesome in his appearance that John fell on the ground like a dead man as a...


Revelation #3

I, John, your brother and fellow partaker in the tribulation and kingdom and perseverance which are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet, saying, Thus begins that mysterious Book the Book of Revelation. The one that we look at and wonder, what does all this mean? what are the signs? what are the symbols? how do we understand it?...


Revelation #2

The Book of Revelation is a book with a very specific purpose. John who wrote it tells us it is the revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave him to show his servants things which must shortly come to pass. But, why bother? Why show them things which should shortly come to pass? Well, the logical answer is because he expects you to do something about it. He thinks that You know, it’s not a bad idea if God is about to do something drastic to society because things are not going the way they...


Revelation #1

The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass[.] Thus begins the mysterious Book of Revelation. Though, why it should be mysterious remains an open question. After all, it is a revelation. It is expressly given to reveal information about certain things that are going to happen. How would you feel if you received a letter from a friend that said, But when you’ve finished the letter, you really don’t know what he’s...


How Freedom Is Lost

As I watch the way our government is changing, I can’t help thinking back to a time when man enjoyed maximum freedom under God. The story is in the Bible, of all places, and it describes, of all things, a theocracy. Many nowadays worry that Christians want to establish a theocracy in this country, but they needn’t worry. You can’t establish a theocracy in a country that doesn’t recognize God. In the Bible, the story of the theocracy (and its end) is told through the books of Joshua, Judges,...


The War Against Freedom

What’s really going on in the world? And what is this really about. When you get to the basics, what people call terrorism is actually a war against the spread of freedom. The war is being waged by the enemies of freedom. Their motive? They are mortally afraid. What are they afraid of? Well, freedom of course. They think we are the problem, and that’s why they struck the World Trade Center. They want us to stop the invasion of what they call into their world. But we can’t stop it. We...


A Beacon of Freedom

The founding fathers stated in the first official document of our nation that our rights and our freedoms are granted, not by men, but by God. And we laid the foundation of the laws of this nation on those rights. In a way, we made a covenant with God in our founding. Through the years of our history, we have become the wealthiest and most powerful nation the world has ever seen. And unlike the great empires of the past, our nation has a commitment to freedom and the rights of man—rights we...


Independence Day

227 years ago, our fathers declared their independence from the British crown. In a world where the great powers were all European—France, Britain, Spain, even Portugal and the Netherlands—I wonder if they could have ever imagined a time when the United States of America would number 50 states and would be the greatest power the world had ever seen. How did it happen? It isn't natural resources. Africa has us beat there hands down, and for that matter so may Asia. And it isn't just...


God's Liberty Bell

I remember first seeing the movie in the theater over 50 years ago. One of the things I remember from the film was the stentorian voice pronouncing: I recall thinking how awkward the King James English was in the picture at that point. I knew it was a citation from the Bible. What I did not know at the time was that the sentence was engraved on the Liberty Bell, cast in 1753. But I think those writing the script of the movie knew it well enough—and the connection was deliberate. The...



Like every American I have read and heard the Gettysburg Address more times than I can recall. I had the singular misfortune not to be required to memorize it when I was in school, because was right when they featured a brand new book about the Gettysburg Address and called it . And, in one of the truly great ironies of speeches, it was only two 272 words. Seven sentences—the greatest speech in American history. The book U.S. News was featuring is titled , by Gabor Boritt. The title is...
