Dissecting Jeremiah 29:11

The LORD of host, the God of Israel said in Scripture: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope,” Jeremiah 29:11. I recall this was the exact passage assigned to me to exegete in one ofContinue reading “Dissecting Jeremiah 29:11”

Look Up, Not Down

Sometimes even Christians feel and look defeated. If so, read Psalm 37. The first two verses said, “Fret not yourself because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers. For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb.” Then in verses 7-9, the Psalmist continued, “Be still before the LORD andContinue reading “Look Up, Not Down”

End Times Brouhaha

This morning I saw on my Facebook a website entitled “The Endtimes Insider”; well, I didn’t even bother to read. Why? ‘Cause the Bible never spoke of the END TIMES but the TIME OF THE END. Daniel 12:4 “But you, Daniel, SHUT UP THE WORDS AND SEAL THE BOOK, UNTIL THE TIME OF THE END.Continue reading “End Times Brouhaha”

Parousia Myths

Despite clear utterance from the Lord Jesus Christ that His return or parousia would be during the lifetime of the apostles, it has been rejected and denied by the futurists – actually, that includes majority of professing Christians. See my blog “Confused Christianity” on Jesus’ assurance concerning His return. One of the most often usedContinue reading “Parousia Myths”

Hallucinations of a Rapture

One of the major doctrines of the futurist camp has to do with the belief of a rapture. Futurists are those who supposed the Return of Jesus Christ is yet to happen. See my blog “Confused Christianity” for the futurist perspective. Again, as I have said in my previous blog (Delusions of Rebuilding the Temple)Continue reading “Hallucinations of a Rapture”

Utopia

I have previously written about my conversion to Christianity on my blog entitled “Regarding Wilmer”. Few days after my only son was buried, a Bible study was started at our home and continued every Monday evening, which lasted for two years. Since then, it became my habit to read the Bible every opportunity available toContinue reading “Utopia”

The Covid-19 pandemic has been around for a year now. Until today, its origin remains to be a matter of opinion, nothing conclusive or official. Just when vaccines are set to roll out, a couple of new variants or mutations of the virus have emerged and is now spreading, even as the original strain remainsContinue reading “Let The Reader Understand”

The Unending Last Days

During this time of the pandemic, a lot of Christians believe we are now in the “last days”. It was mainly due to the novels and books written about the supposed signs of the impending rapture and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. About a century ago, a pandemic known as the “Spanish Flu” lastedContinue reading “The Unending Last Days”

Dating the Book of Revelation

I am publishing verbatim explanation of ecclesia.org on the Dating of the Book of Revelation with a few notes from me. With the dating of Revelation, you establish the true historical prospective. If you date it early, you have its fulfillment in God’s judgment on Israel. If you date it late, you have every man’sContinue reading “Dating the Book of Revelation”
