Is the Bible a Loose Canon? [Podcast]

How do we know the Bibles we have contain all God wants us to read? What about the so-called “lost” books of the Bible? Is the Apocrypha part of Scripture? Why should we even care?

This message explains why the books of the Bible are what they are—and why we can have confidence that we have the complete Word of God.

Luke 11:50-51; 3:16; John 16:12-13; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-2; 2 Peter 1:3-4; Jude 3-4; Revelation 22:18-21

What, the Devil? [Podcast]

Genesis 3:1-6; Isaiah 14:12-14; Ezekiel 28:12-17; Ephesians 6:14-18; Revelation 20:10

Where did the devil come from? Is he real? How could God create him evil—or did He?

Understanding Satan’s strategy against you equips you to be victorious in the battle, for you are in it.

Your First Love [Podcast]

Revelation 2:1-7

When what was once a passion becomes a project, it’s time to look at motives.

Why do you stay so busy? Is it all about your own fulfillment or about your love for Jesus Christ? How can we reignite our first love for God?

What Will Heaven Be Like? [Podcast]

Revelation 21-22

Jesus promised to prepare a real place for believers in His Father’s house. The new heaven, new earth and New Jerusalem are described in Scripture as indescribable! Heaven’s occupants will both worship and serve forever and ever in the presence of the Lord who died for them.

In the meantime, believers should keep an eternal perspective and unbelievers should trust Christ without hesitation.

Victims of the Great White – The Final Judgment [Podcast]

Revelation 20:7-15

After the Millennium, Satan will briefly be loosed but then eternally confined to the lake of fire. God will then sit on His holy and great white throne, whereby the earth will be destroyed and the unbelieving dead will be resurrected for judgment on the basis of their works. Without exception, each one will find him- or herself condemned to the lake of fire.

Such a somber scene requires each one today to seek to have his or her name written in the book of life, and be spared the great white throne judgment.

When the World Meets Jesus Again – The Second Coming [Podcast]

Revelation 19:11-20:6

Hollywood’s version of Armageddon is skewed differently from the Bible. The real Armageddon won’t be much of a battle but will culminate with the Second Coming of Christ to earth, when Israel will finally accept their Messiah whom they so long rejected.

Christ will separate the Gentile nations in judgment and rule the earth from Jerusalem for 1000 years, fulfilling the unconditional Covenants made so long ago.

A Tale of Two Cities – Jerusalem and Babylon in Prophecy [Podcast]

Genesis 10-11, 14; Isaiah 13-14; Revelation 21-22

Two cities represent two kinds of people. Babylon corresponds to the rebellion of man against God; Jerusalem epitomizes faith in God. In a day that leans wholly on humanism, we would do well to trace the history and future of these two cities to see their outcome.

God has prophesied to utterly destroy Babylon and eternally bless Jerusalem—and all that both great cities represent. Which city holds your citizenship?

The Seven-Year Ache – The Tribulation [Podcast]

Matthew 23:37-24:27; Revelation 13:1-10

Immediately following the Rapture of the church begins a seven-year period of extremes. Initially the time appears wonderful, as the Middle East finally will have peace. But halfway through the seven years, having developed a United States of Europe, the Beast will break his covenant with Israel, rule the world, and persecute both Jews and new believers. God also will unleash His wrath on the unbelieving world, so that they might repent and believe in response to a massive evangelistic campaign.

Never before in the history of the world has the stage been set so clearly preparing for the days of tribulation. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and be spared the wrath of God to come on the whole world.

Do You Love Me? [Podcast]

John 21; Revelation 2

The spiritual life tugs against the constant tide of complacency and self-reliance. “Do you love me?” Jesus asked Peter?

Coming back to our first love remains our constant challenge, for there alone is life truly found.
