The title of the last Book in the Holy Bible is The Revelation of Jesus Christ. The Book consisting of 22 chapters, reveals that the Lord Jesus Christ is Almighty Jehovah God, spiritually equal to the Father and the Holy Spirit. Authoritatively, Christ the Son obeys every command of the Father, and the Spirit obeys both the Father and the Son. But, as for the Church and for the coming Millennial kingdom on earth, the Father gives to His Son the throne and authority to judge and reign.Continue reading “What is Revealed about Jesus Christ in the Book of Revelation?”
The First Coming of Christ—sometimes referred to the First Advent—was when that which [was] conceived in [Mary was] of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 1:20b). JESUS, being fully God and fully Man, was actually present here on this earth for thirty-three years.
Therefore, the Second Coming—or the Second Advent—will happen when the Lord Jesus returns and will actually be present here on this earth for the second time. This will happen at the end of the seven-year Tribulation Period—a time appointed by God to begin after the Rapture.
The Second Coming is not to be confused with the soon coming Rapture. The Rapture, defined, is not an advent; rather it is an event. Jesus Christ will rapidly transport—a violent but pleasing event—snatch away—take up into the air—all believers of His universal Church. In this “taking up” the Lord Jesus does not come back to this earth. Instead, He gathers all the believers of the Church Age (Pentecost to time of Rapture) in the air.Continue reading “When will the Second Coming of Christ happen?”
The Millennial refers to the one thousand year reign of Jesus Christ with His Church. This will come soon after Christ’s Second Coming ending the war of Armageddon. So the Millennial will be between the end of the Tribulation Period and the Great White Throne Judgment. The Second Coming—not to be confused with the Rapture—will be the second time the Lord Jesus puts His feet on this earth. The reason the Rapture is not called His Second Coming is because He will come only as far as the atmosphere, and then He will take up and gather together the souls of His Church, both those who’ve died and are in heaven, and those who are alive on this earth. Their destination will be God’s kingdom—heaven. His Second Coming is recorded in Revelation 19:Continue reading “What is the Millennial and who will reign during the Millennial?”

We are so excited that our latest book “Considering Wisdom” has gone to the printer and will be available very soon.
To spark your interest here is an excerpt from the first chapter:
Chapter 1 – Wisdom versus Knowledge
In terms of times and ages, the longest word in our language is the word eternity. Astoundingly, when we consider how the longest, endless running major rivers on six of Earth’s seven continents contribute greatly to wisdom, it can lead to other far-reaching magnificent truths. Considering wisdom’s eternal consequences, a list of only a few of the world’s famous rivers will serve well to reveal how wisdom and nature are supernaturally linked:Continue reading “Considering Wisdom”

7Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen. 8“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
I am the Alpha and the Omega, theBeginning and the End, the First and the Last.
The Revelation is from Christ and about Christ. In Revelation 1:7 He (Jesus) will be seen by all at His Second Coming, whether then or during His Millennial reign or at the Great White Throne of judgment.
Jesus Christ is the equal Almighty God with the FatherContinue reading “WHO IS THE ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END, THE FIRST AND THE LAST?”

Friday again! It’s been snowing since last night and all day today. The forecast is for snow until tomorrow. Reminds me of: “Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!” Happy snow shoveling!
[I wrote the above yesterday but couldn’t post it because, due to all the snow, we experienced a power outage. So posting today.]
We love the winter, no matter how much snow we have to shovel. We also live in a place where we can cross country ski for miles directly from our doorstep. We feel blessed!
[Woke up to about 40cm of more snow this morning -Saturday-]
Winter brings us snow ghosts in an artistic way, it’s a joy to the eyes and what a creation!
God the Creator of the universe, everyone and everything in it.
Mike and I would like to wish all our followers and readers a MERRY CHRISTMAS.
We are celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! What a wonderful occasion, knowing that His birth and His sacrificial death on the cross brought us the gift of eternal life!
Our prayer is that many would find the truth this Christmas season and beyond.
The time is near!

These questions are being asked over and over again. How do we answer them? Is there a short answer to the first question? Like:
He died in our place, paying the price for our sins, to save us from eternal suffering in hell!
Is that the short answer?Continue reading “WHY DID JESUS CHRIST DIE ON THE CROSS? WHAT IS THAT TO ME?”
