  • Scholars debate 'pre-wrath' rapture

    Sixth seal: Cosmic disturbances. Revelation 6:12-17 says, “The sun became black as sackcloth of hair and the moon became like blood.”

  • It's time to move on up to maturity

    “After over a quarter of century, I am convinced that spiritual immaturity is the number one problem in our churches.”

    This statement was made by Warren Wiersbe, who is an internationally known Bible teacher, former pastor of Moody Church in Chicago and author of 150 books. Dr. Wiersbe should know what he is talking about when he says spiritual immaturity is our number one problem in the church today.

  • Slow down and give God thanks

    Sometimes life here on earth can be complicated, demanding and busy.

    With all the rain this past weekend our basement was flooded, and I’m certain others had to deal with the same situation. 

    More than likely all suffered some sort of loss, but you know I believe there was a lesson for us to learn. The business of life keeps us running from place to place with scarcely a moment to spare.

    Therefore, we may fail to pause and say a word of thanks for all the good things we have received.

  • Parents, listen to your children

    Adolescence is the in-between stage of rapid physical, mental and spiritual growth and a time during which young people begin making more of their own choices.

    As parents see their children growing up, the understanding and forgiveness is usually free-flowing as is the affection. They give their children love, but are firm, expecting and demanding appropriate respect.

  • Black horse represents famine

    Revelation 6:5-6; Third Seal scarcity on earth

    The rider on the black horse is a symbol of economic disruption and the resultant famine. The real problem is not famine but inflation and scarcity. A denarius was the daily wage for a laborer, which ordinarily would buy eight times the amount of wheat and barley under these conditions. In our time, it is not hard to conceive of a global economic debt blowout.

  • 'The Lord is like a lamb'

    The lamb opened one of the seals; the Lord is like a lamb, gentle, compassionate, loving, and kind, innocently suffering and dying to atone for our sins. Revelation 6:1

  • Nobody wants to be thrown in the furnace

    Everybody has trouble but nobody seems to want it. The trouble is not the trouble itself, but how we handle it. One young man loses his girlfriend and tries to commit suicide. Another young man loses his girlfriend, writes a song about it, and makes a million dollars. The difference is in the way you treat the problems that come to you.

  • Take upward steps in the Christian life

    King David was “a man after God’s own heart.” His life was not perfect, but he loved God with all the fervor of his soul. He had one great ambition – build a great temple for the Lord. David kept this dream alive in his heart through the years. Now we see him as an old man who does not have many years on this earth.
