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”

Truth Matters

That is the declaration of Jesus Christ about Himself and His Word, see John 14:6. “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’” In Hebrews 9:28, the Bible said: “So also the Messiah (Jesus Christ), having been offered once toContinue reading “Truth Matters”

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”

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”

Delusions of Rebuilding the Temple

The pandemic triggered a lot of delusions from among the Futurist camp – the belief that Jesus is yet to return in the future. Yes, Jesus promised His disciples He was coming in their generation. See my previous blog “Confused Christianity” for better perspective on the topic. Futurists believe the Second Coming of Jesus ChristContinue reading “Delusions of Rebuilding the Temple”

A Glimpse to Discipleship

The Lord Jesus Christ spent three years calling disciples to Himself. He ate, slept and taught them the truths of the Bible. When opportunity arose, He cautioned against living double lives and encouraged them to trust His Word and change for the glory of God. Nowhere in Scripture did He teach the disciples to enrichContinue reading “A Glimpse to Discipleship”

What Comes After Death?

The pandemic has claimed many lives. A lot of questions arise with the passing of a person. We probably have heard sermons concerning the afterlife. I was in a similar circumstance when my only son passed away decades ago. I also have my questions. What happens after death? Death has always been a mystery, thoughContinue reading “What Comes After Death?”
