    Throughout The Bible, passages describe the character of The Antichrist using both direct prophetic allusions and types (typology). Within all these passages, certain themes are discovered again and again. The composite picture paints a fairly simple-minded yet predetermined individual, driven by an insatiable desire for self-elevation and praise. Like Lucifer before him, this obsession will cause The Antichrist to proclaim himself as God’s co-equal, if not higher. Lucifer’s proclamation is…

    In a study of the eschatology of the Kingdom of God, the Bible is very clear on when and how His kingdom is to be. In Matthew 12:28, in the New American Standard Bible it says, “But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you”, here Jesus is explaining how through Him, the Kingdom of God is coming and through His assentation into Heaven, He brings the kingdom into the spiritual realm of this world. In Mark 1:15, it says, “the time has is fulfilled, the…

    The Thin-skinned Tyrant Hits Back—Really Hard The Antichrist is obsessed with persecuting the saints. There is some disagreement over whether or not these saints include believers in Christ that enter into the tribulation period or whether these saints are “new” believers in Christ that come to faith during the tribulation. It all depends on one’s interpretation on the timing of what’s called the rapture; an event where God removes believers from the earth by a super-natural snatching away of…

    The Antichrist will persecute the saints. Disagreement exists whether these saints include believers in Christ that enter the tribulation period, or whether these saints are “new” believers that come to faith during the tribulation. It all depends on one’s interpretation on the timing of the rapture — God’s removal of believers from the earth by a super-natural snatching away. Various theological interpretations regarding the rapture’s particular timing in regards to The Tribulation is beyond…

    For as long as there has even been a theological understanding of the existence of God, heaven and the story of humankind’s beginnings, there has been a conversation about hell. The presence of hell hearkens back to the Old Testament and the concept grows throughout the Bible until the great unveiling of its physical manifestation in the book of Revelation.

    My wife and I, like most other people living in America, received a knock on our door by some Jehovah’s Witnesses. They had their material at “the ready” and started, as they often do, asking us about “paradise earth”. I invited them into our home. At the end of the discussion, we arranged a time for a follow-up visit. On their second visit, my wife and I were prepared with coffee (yes, they do drink coffee) and snacks. I also had some time to brush up on Jehovah’s Witnesses’ beliefs. The…

    Views on Heaven and Hell According to Christian theology, multiple views of heaven and hell have been explored. Some suggest a metaphorical approach, as others present a more literal perspective of what the Bible says. It is very clear throughout Scripture that there are exclusively two destinations dependent on our faith in God. Knowledge regarding what comes after our earthly lives is essential, so we will be more capable to share with others. God has a well thought out plan for our eternity…

    In that view, the church replaces — or as they would say — “fulfills” — Israel. There is no further national program for Israel nor is there a future earthly kingdom lasting for 1000 years with Christ ruling from Jerusalem. This millennial (which means 1000 years) view is called Amillennialism (meaning: no literal millennium). I reject that view in favor of what’s called Premillennialism which basically says that Christ will return before the millennium to set up His 1000-year kingdom on earth.…
