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.

That’s what I want to look at over the next few week: Where is the church going?

Is it possible that much activity is actually swirling around you in that quiet room? Could a battle of sorts even be underway?

Joshua: Marching to Revelation

It has been quite a series, looking at a few of the notable accounts from within the Book of Joshua. Indeed much remains to be investigated, many stories to dig into, but this is where I will end our exploration for now. Before completely signing off though, I would like to quickly point out a few notable aspects about the Book of Joshua that seem to be overlooked by many. In fact, I have to date discovered only a single scholar who has looked critically at this aspect of the Book, and I can assure you that once you see these point laid out, it becomes quite difficult to dismiss them. Is there more to Joshua than just an account of conquest, a guide for both spiritual and physical success against the enemy? Could it be that Joshua is actually a prelude, a foreshadowing even, of the Book of Revelation?¹
