    Signs of Christ's Presence, Part 3

    Signs of the Last Days “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money [affluence and materialism], boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, un-thankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without...

    Signs of Christ's Presence, Part 2

    "Many Shall Run To and Fro and Knowledge Shall be increased" The events of Dan 12:4 occur when Michael the archangel (Dan 12:1; Jude 9) stands up in the Time of the End. 1 Thess 4:16 shows that Christ's return is accompanied by the symbolism of "the voice of the archangel," therefore; the...

    Signs of Christ's Presence, Part 1

    “In considering the signs of Christ's presence it is imperative that we are cognizant of three scriptural points. 1) If as properly understood, the Greek word parousia means presence and NOT coming, then the signs that many accept as evidence of Christ's imminent coming in actually prove that...

    Stumbling in the Day of Visitation, Part 6

    A Message from the Lord "Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." (Rev 18:4) This is the lesson of the eagle.

    Stumbling in the Day of Visitation, Part 4

    We Shall Not All Sleep, But We Shall All Be Changed Some will have slept in death before their resurrection at Christ's return. However, Christians living during Christ's parousia or presence will be changed in the twinkling of an eye without sleeping in death. Each, at the instant of their...

    Caught up Together With Him “Paul, speaking of the appearing of the Lord Jesus Christ, called it "that blessed hope." Titus 2:13 What a blessed hope indeed when finally united with Christ, our beloved bridegroom soon the warfare will be ended, the toiling and suffering over. Soon we will...

    Stumbling in the Day of Visitation, Part 2

    A great stumbling block to many believers is the idea that the Church will be raptured away prior to the great time of trouble. The scriptures however contradict this thought and show that the Church will still be here during the opening stages of the tribulation. Nahum 1:5-8 confirms this...

    Stumbling in the Day of Visitation, Part 1

    Why are the majority of believers unaware of the Lord’s presence at this time? There are a number of reasons. The number one reason is because the majority of professed Christians are in truth but Christians in name only, nominal Christians, neither begotten of the spirit nor led of the...

    Our Lord's Great Prophecy, Part 94

    Matthew Chapter 24 Before we move on to our next verse we still have the question of the 120 years. What about the 120 years? 120 years prior to the flood the Lord warned Noah that the present age of mankind had but 120 years remaining before He would destroyed them from the face of the earth...

    Our Lord's Great Prophecy, Part 93

    Matthew Chapter 24 Before we proceed on to Verse 45 in our Matthew study we should first like to present a bit more insight in regards to the “watches” mentioned in Luke 12:38, which we hope might aid some to a better appreciation of what is being referred to. We should also like to take...

    Our Lord's Great Prophecy, Part 90

    Matthew Chapter 24 We continue once again with our look at the parable of “The Faithful Servant and the Evil Servant”, as we believe it will greatly aid us when we continue with our Matthew study. Luke 12 Verse 36 “And you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return...

    Our Lord's Great Prophecy, Part 88

    Matthew Chapter 24 Verse 43 KJV continued, “But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.” In Luke 12:36–38 three time periods of expectation are suggested: “second...

    Our Lord's Great Prophecy, Part 84

    Matthew Chapter 24 Question: Is there a distinction between Noah and Lot? Noah was plainly shut in the Ark before the rain ever started, but Lot was leaving Sodom as the fire and brimstone were occurring, so wouldn’t Lot picture the Great Company? Answer: Yes. And Lot’s wife pictures the...
