    The Gospel of the Kingdom

    Shabbat shalom, everyone. The “gospel of the kingdom” or the “good news about the Kingdom” is FAR different than what we call the “gospel” today. It is what the Jews knew from all the teaching they had about the coming Messiah who would reign over Israel in the future. Here’s what we know from...

    Clarion Call

    Shalom, everyone. First, a riddle: What day of the year is a command to go forward? Second, I’ve had a wake-up call recently - a clarion call, if you will - from the LORD during my Bible reading of Shlomoh’s prayer in the dedication of the Temple - the House of God. Read it here from the...

    Does anyone still believe in a Resurrection?

    Shalom, everyone. I don’t often take the initiative to start a topic because usually I’m busy trying to answer objections in a defensive posture. Today, I’m going on the offensive. I was reading in Joshua chapters 13 through 21 about all the land that was promised to each of the tribes of...

    Prophecy paradigm shift needed

    Shalom, everyone. I would like to suggest a massive paradigm shift based on six definitions: These definitions are of the six words: "Christ," "Kingdom", "Gospel," "Salvation," "Church," and "Heaven." Currently, many Christians use the following definitions: (3rd) Heaven = God's abode Christ...

    LORD or Lord? KING or King?

    Shalom, everyone. This is going to seem like a strange topic and possibly some will view it as "heretical," "blasphemous," "petty," or who-knows-what-else, but this topic is brought up with all seriousness and reverence. We all should know that there is a difference between "Lord" and "LORD,"...

    Will the real "Antichrist" please stand up?

    Shalom, everyone. It's extremely interesting all the fabrications that have arisen regarding the "Antichrist." Seems that it started when someone thought that the 70th Seven ("Week") of Daniel 9:24-27 should be equated with the "tribulation" of which Yeshua` spoke in the Olivet Discourse...

    Lord! Lord!

    Shalom, everyone. Recently, guysmith asked me about this passage of Scripture: At his suggestion, I would like to discuss this statement in the open forum to get everyone's view. For me, I think this statement is quite simple. There will be those who THINK they are doing the Lord's work but...

    Believe ALL of the Gospels

    Shalom, everyone. Much of eschatology ("the study of last things"), a branch of theology which studies the prophecies of Scripture and their fulfillment, is to be found in the words of the Master, Yeshua` haMashiach, Jesus the Christ, the Son of Man and the Son of God. These words are DIRECTLY...

    Some basic Hebrew as it pertains to prophecy

    Shalom, everyone. It has been brought to my attention that many here have access to study helps that give us the basic vocabulary of Greek and Hebrew, but none of the study helps adequately explain how Hebrew works or give us enough grammatical help. Indeed, Hebrew grammar is a MAJOR hinderance...

    English grammar and spelling affects prophecy

    This is going to be a thread that may seem trivial, but I believe that it has ramifications that intertwine among each one of the on-going threads. Let me build my case: Logic is the mathematics of language, and English grammar is a set of rules to which most who speak English have agreed to...

    Matthew 13's parables.

    Shalom, everyone. I've heard these parables of our Master being used time and time again as support for this point of view or that point of view, that I feel it's high time we understand the true meaning of these parables. First and foremost, these are parables about the King and His Kingdom...

    What does the word "Christ" mean to you?

    Shalom, everyone. This is (IMO) a starting point to the understanding of prophecy. What one believes about this word (and terms related to this word) is fundamental to how one will perceive many of the prophecies, both in the Tanakh (the OT) and in the B'rit Chadashah (the NT). Please don't...

    Blood vs. Bones

    Shalom, everyone! This is more for fun, than anything else, but there is a fundamental truth at stake in this question: How do you rectify these seemingly contradictory statements? Luke 24:36-43 36 And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be...

    Apollo NEO

    Shalom, brothers and sisters. Have you all heard of the Apollo NEO asteroid that is on a collision course with earth on February 5, 2040? It's original designation is Asteroid 2011 AG5. That means that it is a Torino Level 5 threat! It is also designated as a PHA, Potentially Hazardous...
