It’s Not Just Judah that Needs to Repent

Just because we are saved, this does not guarantee that we are committed to God’s will and ways, which is a daily decision we need to choose. Like the Israel of Isaiah’s day, we can be caught up in the idolatry of this world. Are we focused on the wrong thing – job opportunities, buying a larger home, getting a better car – or are we content to live within the means that God has provided for us and simply look and wait for Him to direct us into service opportunities for Him?

Prophecies of Isaiah, Pt 1

The prophet Isaiah’s name means “the salvation of the Lord” signifying that true salvation comes fromĀ God, not human beings. God offers His salvation, yet men and women since the fall have sought their own means or methods of “salvation,” which are not salvation at all. The book of Isaiah makes this undeniably clear, yet in spite of the truth found throughout Isaiah and history that proves the merit of Isaiah’s prophecies (as being God-inspired or “breathed”), people continue to reject God’s truth to their own peril and detriment.

Most Difficult Part of Being a Christian

Being a Christian is hard work. It’s not an easy road. It’s only “easy” when we are in complete submission to God and because we continue to have a sin nature even after we’re saved, we war against it. Paul says we must work out our salvation with fear and trembling. It does require effort; effort in prayer, effort in choice, effort in desire. Sometimes, it will require us to fall on our knees, crying out to God begging Him to help us get “over” ourselves and trust Him.

What Can We Expect During the Millennium, Part 5?

It is very difficult for the average person to imagine a society where oppression no longer exists and true, unqualified peace reigns. We would remind readers that this will be the case because of the fact that Jesus will rule with a rod of iron, as the Scripture notes (Revelation 2:27). If Jesus were to ease up restrictions, both oppression and conflict would become a normal part of society then as it is now and has been since the fall of humanity. It is also important to understand that God will have poured out His Spirit upon mankind as He promises to do so in Scripture (Joel 2:28; Acts 2:17).

Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution: Birth Pang 2B

Today, there are unfortunately many Christians who believe in something called Replacement Theology. This view espouses that God ultimately rejected Israel because they rejected their Messiah. Therefore all remaining blessings that were to be bestowed on Israel have been transferred to the Church. This line of thinking is absurd, especially if one considers that throughout the book of Ezekiel alone, God makes statements like “This is what the sovereign Lord says: It is not for your sake that I am about to act, O house of Israel, but for the sake of my holy reputation which you profaned among the nations where you went,” (Ezekiel 36:22).

East Jerusalem in Exchange for the Temple?

Of course, we know that the peace, such as it is, will last a mere 3 1/2 years before the same man who gained peace, turns on the Israelites with a terror never before witnessed by the world.
