Should Christians Really Support Israel?

by Dr. David Reagan

God is fulfilling promises today that were made to the Jewish people thousands of years ago. These promises rest on a series of legal agreements, called covenants, made between God and the Jewish people, that center on the land of Israel.

The cornerstone covenant — the Abrahamic Covenant — grants the title deed to the land of Israel to the descendants of the line of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. This unconditional, irrevocable, and everlasting promise was literally sealed in blood (Genesis 12:1–713:14–1817:71 Chronicles 16:17–18Psalm 105:8–11Romans 9:4)!

God’s Land Covenant promised that Israel will one day become the prime nation of the world, that is, as long as the Jewish people remain obedient to God (Deuteronomy 28:1,13).

And The Gospel Will Be Preached…

by Britt Gillette

A little less than 2,000 years ago, a Galilean man in the small province of Judea made one of the most bold and astounding prophecies in all of human history. He claimed His personal message of hope and redemption would be preached to the ends of the earth. When He made this claim, He was a Jewish carpenter on the outskirts of the ancient Roman Empire. Even in nearby Jerusalem, only a small number of people had heard His message. His followers were ordinary – a handful of fishermen and tax collectors. He didn’t hold high office. He wasn’t a member of high society. He wasn’t a celebrated military conqueror, and he didn’t live in a palace. In fact, at first glance, there was little about Him to indicate such a thing was possible.

The Convergence of End Times Signs

By Britt Gillette

For the essence of prophecy is to give a clear witness for Jesus.” Revelation 19:10 (NLT)

Almost two thousand years ago, Peter prophesied about the end times. He said just before Jesus returns, people will openly mock the Second Coming. They’ll say, “What happened to Jesus? I thought He was coming back? Yet everything remains the same as it has since the world first began” (2 Peter 3:3-4). I’ll bet you’ve heard this argument many times. But is it true? Is the world of today “the same as it’s always been”? Absolutely not. In fact, it’s absurd to say it is.

Fulfilled Christmas Prophecies Prove the Diety of Jesus!

By Dr. David Reagan

Every year at Christmastime I am reminded of the remarkable prophecies concerning the birth of Jesus and how they substantiate His deity and the faithfulness of God. Let’s take a look at some of those prophecies.

The Timing of the Birth

The timing of the Messiah’s birth had been indicated in Genesis 49:10 in words spoken by Jacob on his deathbed to his son Judah: “The scepter shall not depart from Judah… until Shiloh comes, and to Him shall be the obedience of the peoples.”

The End Times According To Peter

by Jack Kelley

Dear friends, this is now my second letter to you. I have written both of them as reminders to stimulate you to wholesome thinking. I want you to recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and Savior through your apostles. (2 Peter 3:1-2)

Peter wrote this letter, his final one, around 65 AD. He was probably in Rome at the time, since he was crucified in 68, though he may have still been in Babylon, where he’d written letter number one five years earlier.

His purpose in writing was three-fold: to stimulate spiritual growth among Christians, to combat the false teaching that was coming into the Church, and to emphasize the certainty of the Lord’s return. We’ll focus on this third purpose, which Peter addressed in chapter 3.

The Rapture in the Old Testament

by Jim Tetlow

Perhaps some of the strongest arguments in favor of a

Pre-Tribulation or Pre-Seventieth Week of Daniel Rapture

are found in the Old Testament. In the Old Testament we see “a

shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the

things” (Hebrews 10:1).

The Woman and The Dragon – Revelation 12

by Rapturewatch

Many people find the book of Revelation hard to understand. This is true because the Apostle John used “Apocalyptic Writing” when he penned the book of Revelation. In this study I am going to discuss chapter 12 (The Woman and The Dragon) of the book of Revelation. Hopefully I can provide some understanding to this piece of scripture.

At the time John wrote the book of Revelation all of the disciples had been martyred and the Roman Emperor Domitian had ordered that John be executed by throwing him into a cauldron of boiling oil, but God intervened. God protected him, and kept him alive. Since he couldn’t kill him, Domitian had John exiled to the island of Patmos. The church was under heavy persecution, so many theologians believe John wrote the book of Revelation in Apocalyptic writing in order to get his message past the Romans and to the seven churches.

Blessed Is He Whose Hope Is In The Lord

by Jack Kelley

Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God, the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them—the Lord, who remains faithful forever. (Psalm 146:4-6)

Most independent observers don’t expect the economy to improve any time soon, and the average American doesn’t believe either of the presumed candidates for president will be able to change that. Regardless of the reported swings in the unemployment figures, the percentage of working age Americans who have a job has remained steady for over two years, and Labor Department sources say it’s the lowest level of work force participation in 28 years.

The Bride of Christ and the Jewish Wedding Models

By Bill Salus

WILL THE BRIDE OF CHRIST BE TORMENTED IN THE TRIBULATION PERIOD?

The Bridegroom (Christ) and bride (Christian church) analogy given several times in the New Testament, infers believers escape the wrath of the seven-year tribulation period.

It is doubtful that Christ would come for a bride that has been battered, bruised, and tarnished from seven years of tribulation. Contrarily, it makes more sense that Jesus would return to rapture His believers before they are ravished by those judgments, that are specifically intended for unbelievers.

Myths and Facts about Israel

by Todd Strandberg

The devil hates the Jewish people with a passion. The Jews are the ones who gave mankind the Bible and the Savior, Jesus Christ. It should come as no surprise that nations who are demonically controlled would share in the devil’s hatred of Israel. On this page, I’ve listed a number of popular myths about Israel, and I’ve also provided facts to counter those lies.
