Babylon and Its System, Part 2

Those Christians living during the coming Tribulation will be very tempted to become part of the Babylon system – religiously, economically, politically and socially – and may even want to move to that location to be closer to the action. The fact that once destroyed, Babylon becomes a haunt of demons, unclean spirits, birds and beasts probably affirms the fact that this Babylon in Revelation 17/18 is a real, physical place if physical birds and beasts can dwell there.

Babylon and Its System, Part 1

But Babylon is not simply the apostate religious system in all its forms. It also includes and is undergirded by the economic system that holds it up. This is what Revelation 18 is all about as it shows us a Babylon that is an economic system.

Charles G. Finney: Hero or Heretic?

It seems at every turn, Finney objected to and repudiated sound doctrine, replacing it with his own philosophizing and morality. But we know that our “morality” is filth compared to God’s own righteousness. We know that nothing man can do will help us overcome our sinful condition. That required Another to do what man cannot. Yet, it is clear from his own writings that Finney completely rejected the entire idea of Christ as our propitiation.

What Rest Do Christians Enter Into?

Too often, the living out of our righteousness (sanctification) falls woefully short of our positional righteousness (justification). Christians who are not careful about living righteously will be led astray into rebellion, then apostasy if continued. It often happens in small increments, but can also happen with one huge push of disobedience on our part.

Rebounding for Health?

I cannot emphasize this enough. Each of us has only so many days that the good Lord has allotted to us. We can enjoy those days because we enjoy good health (which does affect our spiritual health!), or we can slowly die a little more each day. I know that eventually my body will give out and it’ll be time to go Home because I live in a dying body due to sin. But I do not want to be like the Corinthians whom the Lord put to “sleep” (death) early because of their carnality and lack of concern. They were doing it wrong. I was doing it wrong.

Shrouded in Mystery?

I’ve read many articles that discuss the Shroud in comparison to Scripture. Emphasis is placed on the facial cloth (the Sudarium) and strips of linen. I know for instance, that the folks at Sword of the Lord refute the claim that the Shroud is authentic and part of the reason this is done is based on the testimony of Scripture. However, the article below addresses that as well as the historicity, archaeological evidence and the Word of God.

Down into the Sewer?

The reality of evil in this world has become palpably real and it continues to grow. We are destined to get to a time of false peace and security that people will mistake for actual peace. It will be a time when Arabs and Jews will appear to come together in like-mindedness. However, this is all simply a ruse created by the enemy of our souls. The coming appearance of peace will simply give way to total upheaval as the Antichrist reaches his foreordained summit which will allow him to rule over the entire earth in the final Gentile-led kingdom first spoken about through the prophet Daniel.

What is Revival?

James talks about living the life of a Christian. In fact, his entire epistle breaks down into concrete ways in which Christians are to live practically speaking. Paul does the same thing, as did Jesus. Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (ESV)
