The Fig Tree

Last week's Preacher's Point showed signs indicating the Second Coming of Christ. We left the most significant sign for this week - Israel. In Matthew 24, the disciples ask Jesus, "Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world" (Matthew 24:3)? … Continue reading The Fig Tree

The Signs

Two weeks ago, this column pointed out that the Bible compares the signs of Christ's return to a woman in labor. Contractions start mild with a reasonable amount of time in between but gradually increase in intensity and frequency. This week we will venture into what the signs are. To list all the signs of … Continue reading The Signs

What Is Armageddon?

A word used too loosely nowadays is Armageddon. It seems like anything big or significant and unpleasant is some sort of "mageddon" event, such as snowmageddon and retail-mageddon. The recent threat of nuclear war has brought the idea of Armageddon happening to mainstream thinking. A global nuclear war would be the worst event thus far … Continue reading What Is Armageddon?

When Will The Water Break?

One thing that has always surprised me is how many Christians are surprised by world events. For example, the current nuclear threat by the Russians has brought a lot of questions about Armageddon, especially if we will see the battle of Armageddon in the next few months. The answer is no. We do not know … Continue reading When Will The Water Break?

Back To The Basics

In my younger days, I was an athlete. I won several state bowling titles and always seemed to hit a baseball better than my peers. When it came to basketball, I was born too early, the three-point line was still a thing of the future, but I was a terror from twenty-plus feet. However, I … Continue reading Back To The Basics

If God Were To Ask You…

If God were to ask you, "Why should I let you into heaven?" What would your answer be? The thought of standing before God brings different responses to different people. Some find the idea terrifying, or at least a bit scary. Others have no fear of appearing before God because they believe that eternal bliss … Continue reading If God Were To Ask You…

Five Red Heifers

What possibly could be the third most significant headline regarding prophecy in roughly two thousand years may have occurred last week. Five red heifers arrived in Israel on Thursday, September 15, 2022. You are probably thinking, "There must be livestock in transport every moment of every day someplace in the world. What makes these five … Continue reading Five Red Heifers

Are There Tears In Heaven?

There are a lot of things that are yet to happen, according to the Bible. Most of the attention is on the rapture, the coming seven-year Tribulation Period, and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. There is little discussion about the events after the Tribulation and the Second Coming. Revelation 20-22 describes the events after … Continue reading Are There Tears In Heaven?

Through The Spirit

Christian, are you dead to sin? Romans 8:13, "For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live." A lot is going on in this one verse.  There is a duty prescribed - mortify the deeds of the body. … Continue reading Through The Spirit

Christian Apathy

John the Baptist and Jesus Christ preached the same message. Matthew 3:1-2, "In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, and saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." Matthew 4:17, "From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven … Continue reading Christian Apathy
