In 1844, there was a great disappointment where people sold their properties and prepared themselves for Jesus Christ's return. Now my Question is, who told those people that Jesus Christ was coming in 1844? How did they know?

The early part of the 19th century in the U.S. witnessed a notable religious revival. As the country prospered industrially, people turned to perfecting the inner spirit. There were reforms, causes and societies, and an awakening in biblical scholarship, especially in the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation.  Protestants were particularly interested in the 2300 years […]

Please explain Luke 17:20-21, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.”

In this event, Jesus was talking to the Pharisees. How could God’s kingdom be in the hearts of Pharisees? Jesus had called the Pharisees hypocrites! (Read Luke 11 and Matthew 23.) ​

The NIV, ESV, CSB, NASB translate this as “the kingdom of God is among you.” These verses may be better rendered with the thoughts: “The […]

Movies typically show robbery scenes in the dark of night with thieves wearing black. With that in mind, what does it mean when Paul says that the day of the Lord will come like a thief at night (1 Thessalonians 5:2)?

To understand the Bible, we need to harmonize all the scriptures on a specific topic. For example, Jesus said, “sell your possessions and give to the poor,” Matthew 19:21. Does Jesus really want us to sell all? Then we will become one of the poor. But the Apostle Paul says, “if someone does not provide […]

Which Bible verse talks about the last day?

Part 1: the Bible foretells great evilness in the last days.

2 Timothy 3:1-5 (NIV), "But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the […]

What is our Delightful GOD saying to us in Zephaniah 3:17?

“The LORD your God is in your midst, a victorious warrior!” Zephaniah 3:17.

The third chapter of Zephaniah records rebellion and then deliverance.  Israel's rebellion and disobedience to God's instructions are in Zephaniah 3:1-7. These prophecies display our God’s ability to deal with the obstacles of sin with the amazing result of victorious deliverance and blessing for […]

Why do most Christians believe in the rapture when it is not in the Bible? I have read the Bible over 25 times and have never seen it there. Or iS it just a way to scare people to turn to God?

The doctrine of the rapture is a Protestant addition to Futurist interpretations of the book of Revelation. It was not invented to scare people but evolved from the Roman Catholic Church’s attempts to suppress the Protestant Reformers in the 16th century.  Martin Luther through intense study of the Scriptures concluded that justification comes through faith […]

Who was Shiloh in the Bible?

The person Shiloh is only referenced once in the Bible. Genesis 49:10 (ASV), “The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the obedience of the peoples be.” Shiloh is Jesus. This is a prophecy which began its fulfillment at Jesus’ first […]

Why are we told to pray for enemies and then the Bible talks about having our enemies crushed under our feet?

“But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. If you love only those […]

What is the difference between the pre and post millennial Heavens?

The “Millennium” is the 1,000 year reign of Jesus and His church on earth. Revelation 20:6, “…they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.” There are definitely many differences in the symbolic heavens before and after Christ’s reign.

The air or the heavens represent the spiritual order […]

Please explain 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17. Are the shout, the voice of the Archangel, the trump of God, the clouds and the air literal or symbolic?

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air.” 1 Thessalonians […]
