Waiting on the Bridegroom, Part 3

Through the Old Testament, we find 353 prophecies dealing with Jesus’ first coming  – all of which He fulfilled already. The statistics behind these prophecies are remarkable, too, and sooner or later I’ll share a few of those numbers here for you to contemplate.  

What’s really astonishing though is that there are at least eight times more prophecies concerning His second coming!¹

Waiting on the Bridegroom, Part 2

Going into this bit of Scripture, I want you to think about something: Is God ever surprised about anything? Does anything ever catch Him off-guard? The truth is No; He’s omniscient. He knows everything that has ever happened! He knows everything that is happening! He knows everything that is going to happen! Nothing has ever surprised God.

Waiting on the Bridegroom, Part 1

When we look around at our world today, most of us cannot help but feel a sense of anxiety. No matter what side of the political spectrum you find yourself on, there is an air of conflict we cannot seem to escape, a burden of dread as we wait for the next shoe to drop. In reality, it need not be so. For those who believe, those who have been washed in the blood of Christ, who have accepted the salvation that He alone provides, no matter where this world is heading, we have another destination all together. That’s what I want to look at over the next few week: Where is the church going?

Hell & the Rich Man, Part 12

Those who are burning in Hell, those who will yet be cast into the fire, were not thrown into darkness by a vengeful god. They made a choice! An eternally regrettable one. They set their destiny by filling their plate with the lusts of the flesh! They anchored themselves to Hell – just as so many who are alive today – with every single sin. Christ is the only hope any of us have! Jesus is the only way to avoid the torment of Hell!

Hell & the Rich Man, Part 10

He’s begging, him, this rich man. He knows it’s too late for him, but he is begging in this passage for an opportunity – some way or another – to warn those headed in his footsteps. What happens next? This figure he sees as Abraham answers, and he says what? He says they have the Scriptures, let them read them!

Hell & the Rich Man, Part 9

You have a choice to make, friend. Do you live for the flesh? Do you choose to fill your belly with all the good things of this world, and all the delicious sins it has to offer? Or, do you acknowledge the God of creation, the Lord of Lords, the King of Kings, the Author of Salvation! Don’t waste your life…

Hell & the Rich Man, Part 8

The rich man found himself in Hell. He looked up and saw Lazarus, the man who in life was not worthy of his attention and his mercy. Now though, as he writhes in agony in the darkness – where the worm dies not, and the fire is not quenched – he cries out to the figure of Abraham as he sees it, calling to him louder than we can imagine Lazarus ever cried out at his gate!
