God is love (1 John 4:8), but God is also "a consuming fire" (Deuteronomy 4:24; Hebrews 12:29). Both aspects, love and consuming fire, are seen in the book of Jeremiah. Israel had forsaken God and fallen into sin. The Israelites were so far into sin; they were no longer embarrassed by anything anymore (Jeremiah 6:15; … Continue reading There Comes A Point
We have reached a time in our country when trust is nearly nonexistent. As a Pastor, from time to time, I will counsel married couples. Any problem can be solved if trust is still in play. Once either person loses faith in the other, it is a long, hard road returning to a working relationship. … Continue reading Trust – Where Are You?
We are just past the halfway point of 2020, and if nothing else happened this year, it would still go down as one of the strangest years in history. The best word to describe it, I believe, is "uncertainty." People are uncertain about their health, the economy, social reform, the nation, the world. Christians around … Continue reading The Pre-Tribulation Rapture

It is also known as Daniel's seventieth week. The main character on earth … Continue reading The Spirit Of Antichrist

Most people have a misconception about God's law. We know that no one is perfect, but after that fact, two general beliefs prevail. First, overall if we do the right and stay away from wrong as much as possible, we will have achieved God's favor. Second, there is a line, and if we cross it, … Continue reading Equality Under The Law – God’s Law
Have you ever wondered why old habits are hard to break? I reckon the longer we do something, the harder to stop. As an example, you know what they say about riding a bicycle - you learn when you are a kid, and you never forget. Just yesterday, I had a sixty-one-year-old tell me of … Continue reading The Road Of The Loss Of Respect
Since the start of the virus, this column has focused mostly on Biblical prophecy. I feel it prudent to take a step back and give readers an overview of what is coming according to the Bible.
