Signs and Wonders or Christ Crucified?

I hear a lot of stress these days on seeking “signs and wonders.” Seemingly, church “leaders” are convinced, or they want to convince ...

What Rapture?

Discussions of the “rapture” center on the issue of when it will occur - before the Tribulation, at its midpoint, or at its end (the pre-, mid- and post-tribulation positions). But the question misses the point – Nowhere does the New Testament even mention a future “rapture.” By “rapture” is meant the removal of Christians from the earth and their transportation to heaven.

The Last Generation Con

The End-Time Prophecy Industry has been telling us for generations that we are the “last generation” to exist before the return of Jesus and the many prophetic events expected to precede his arrival.
The supposed prophetic “sign” that marked the start of this final “generation” was the founding of the modern state of Israel in 1948. Ever since, everything prophetic revolves around Israel, not Jesus or his gospel proclamation to all nations. God's anointed ruler of the Cosmos is, at best, peripheral to any (supposed) prophetic events in and around Palestine.

Kingdom of God or Christendom?

The deception of ‘Christendom’ is an attempt to domesticate the Jesus of scripture so he may be used to validate national institutions, ideologies, and values often more antichrist than Christian.
The English term ‘Christendom,’ supposedly, refers to “that part of the world in which Christianity prevails,” either because most citizens claim to be Christian or because a specific church is recognized by a government as the official religion of that nation.

The Calendar Follies

It is September, the “season” of the Hebrew new year, Rosh Hashanah, when “God promises a special blessing from Heaven,” one of the “divine dates on God's calendar,” etc. But divining the future from calendrical calculations and Hebrew year numbers has no basis in Scripture, period.
Well, truth be told, it is what has become the annual three-ring circus when (far too) many “Charismatic leaders” attempt to divine the future by calendrical cycles and year numbers. Never mind the Apostle’s words, “how do you turn back again to the weak and beggarly rudiments to which you desire again to be enslaved? You narrowly observe days, and months, and seasons, and years.” “Let no man judge you in food or drink, or in respect of a feast day or a new moon or a Sabbath day, which are a shadow of the coming things; but the body is of Christ.”
