Why is the death of Jesus Christ celebrated on different dates and months?

The Catholic Church desired to distance itself from the Jewish Law and its association with Judaism. It also wanted to blend and incorporate some of the pagan rituals and holidays with Christian holy days. This double motivation led the  Catholic church to compromise the timing of celebration of our Lord's death and resurrection. They decided […]

Historically, is there a ten year gap between the 69th. and 70th. prophetic weeks of Daniel 9:24-27? Is a gap the reason why some believe 7 years of tribulation are separated from the earlier 69 years?

Daniel 9:24-27 takes us from rebuilding of Jerusalem’s walls through the coming of the Messiah. When did the rebuilding of Jerusalem begin? Nehemiah 2:1 records that the Persian King, Artaxerxes, gave Nehemiah permission to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem in the “year 20” of his reign. Establishing exactly when this happened has created confusion for […]

Is tithing relevant today?

Tithing or giving 10 percent is no where commanded in the New Testament. Tithing was an arrangement instituted by God to support the tribe of Levites. The Levites were not given an inheritance in the land and were to be fully employed as priests to serve God and Israel. The tithe supported these men in […]

In 2 Thessalonians 2, the man of sin persecutes those who love God and the truth. What are those persecutions?

Who is the Man of Sin?  The Man of Sin is Papacy – the Roman Catholic system and the position of Pope, but not the particular individual in that position.  This might seem harsh and judgmental, however, Papacy is a falsifier which sought to take the honor of the true anointed, the true Christ and […]

What is the daily sacrifice and the abomination that makes desolate in Daniel 11 verse 31?

Daniel 11:31, “And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that makes desolate.”  Jesus refers to this in Matthew 24:15-16, “When you see the abomination of desolation, spoken by Daniel the prophet, stand in the […]

What is the book of Obadiah about?

Edom was the name given to Esau, the twin brother of Jacob, after he sold his birthright.  (Genesis 25:30-34)  The name was applied both to the people descended from him and to the country in which they settled.  (Genesis 36:1; Numbers 20:18-21; Jeremiah 49:17)  

The name “Edom” is frequently used by the prophets (Isaiah, Jeremiah, […]

What is the Mass?

Christ's continual sacrifice was not actually canceled or abolished by Papacy, but it was set aside by a false doctrine – which completely set aside the merit of Christ's sacrifice as a continual and ever-efficacious one. This false doctrine is known as the Mass, or Sacrifice of the Mass.

Protestants in general totally misunderstand this so-called sacrament. They suppose it […]

Babylon is located in Iraq in Old Testament. In the New Testament, where is the "mystery, Babylon" in Revelation 17-5?

The name written on the forehead of the woman riding the scarlet colored beast did not represent a location nor did it refer to literal Babylon located in Iraq in ancient times.  Rather it was part of a title,  “MYSTERY: BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH”. The title symbolically […]

Did Mary the mother of Jesus die? And why do Catholics pray to and through Mary?

Mary certainly died. As the Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 15:22, “…in Adam all die…” Since Mary was part of the Adamic race, she did die. The last mention of her in the Bible does confirm that she continued as a believer with other Christians in the early church.   Acts 1:14, “These all continued […]

Is Easter a pagan holiday? Should Christians celebrate it?

Yes, Easter has pagan roots. The Saxon fertility goddess, Ēostre or Ostara, was celebrated at a festival in the springtime, around the time of the Passover.  As pagans came into the church and converted to Christianity, Church leaders saw no problem permitting customs from this pagan holiday that aligned with the Christian holiday to be […]
