Introduction to the End Times
What is the most powerful weapon on earth?
What is the most powerful weapon on earth? Weapons experts agree it’s the Tsar Hydrogen Bomb detonated on October 30th 1961. The bomb had a yield of 50 Megatons of TNT, it was the most powerful man-made explosion in history. The explosion was the equivalent of 1570x of both the Hiroshima and Nagasaki explosions, it was 10x all the conventional weapons used in WW II. Nikita Khrushchev, head of the Soviet Union, wanted to demonstrate his nation’s power to the world and in particular the United States.
Today most nuclear powers, use the same technology in their own missiles. Where does a Hydrogen bomb get its power? It uses the power present in the Uranium238 atoms and unleashes it the right time to deliver a devastating attack on its intended target. The power was always present in
Dr. Nabeel Qureshi Conversion from Islam to Christianity
Raised as a devout Muslim in the United States, Qureshi grew up studying Islamic apologetics with his family and engaging Christians in religious discussions. After one such discussion with a Christian at his university, the two became friends and began a years-long debate on the historical claims of Christianity and Islam. Nabeel’s resulting journey was chronicled in his first book, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus. In addition to being a New York Times bestseller, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus was awarded the Christian Book Award for the categories of both “Best New Author” and “Best Non-Fiction” of 2015. Christianity Today heralded Qureshi as one of “33 Under 33” in its cover story on emerging religion leaders in July 2014.
Revelation Chapter 21:Eternity: New Heavens, New Earth and New Jerusalem
Where will you be in one million years? Stupid question? To most living in the world there is no perception of what an eternal existence means. Jesus in the Book of Revelation takes us to the window of eternity and peels back the curtain to give us a view of what "Eternity" is going to be like. As a believer in Jesus Christ, you can look forward to an Eternal existence in the presence of God, you will live in God's house, with the "Saints" and angels. In Revelation Chapter 21, Jesus, through John, expands the details of this existence. Jesus wants us to envision our future home, He wants us to invite everybody we know, with the time we have. This presentation cover Revelation Chapter 21:
Revelation Chapter 20: Part 2: The Millennium and the Great White Throne
In the Book of Revelation, God has revealed the future so you can live in anticipation of what is coming. Jesus in the New Testament presented the Kingdom of God. This kingdom was referred to in the Old Testament (Tanach), especially by the prophets Jeremiah, Isaiah,Daniel, Zechariah and others. This kingdom, according to the book of Revelation is 1000-years also known as the Millennium. Many Bible teachers and pastors reject the idea of a literal Millennium, doing so they must reject the literal message of Revelation and create their own. The following is Part II of a literal presentation on the Millennium as presented in scripture, from both the Old and New Testament perspective.
A Study of Psalm 83
If you want to understand what is going to happen in the Middle East, all you have to do is turn to Psalm 83. This Psalm was written by Asaph, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, to reveal an event which is now being fulfilled. Asaph was Levite and prophet who composed 11 Psalms (Psalms 72-83) in the time of David (I Chronicles 6:39). Asaph wrote about a day in which all the surrounding nations would conspire with one mind to eliminate Israel from being a nation.
Why there needs to be a Third Temple?
This was the question asked recently:
“What is your support for the rebuilding of the Jewish temple in the tribulation I don't think there is one going to rebuild that temple.?”
First point to understand here is that the Scripture clearly teaches, before the “Second Coming” when Jesus returns in “Glory and Power” there will be a Third Temple on the Temple Mount site.
Let’s look at the scriptural and prophetic evidence for a Third Temple. In Matthew 24, Jesus talks about both the 2nd and 3rd Temples, he makes a distinction between both. The Second Temple existed in the time Jesus
Introduction to Chapter 3
In Nehemiah Chapter 2 Nehemiah prays and fasts for 4 months before coming before King Artaxerxes of Persia. Finally on Nisan 444 B.C., (March/April), he comes before the king and queen allowing them to see his depressed and mourning demeanor. The king seeing his sadness asks him to explain. Nehemiah then describes the reason for his sadness, the condition of Jerusalem, a city without walls and without gates. The king then asks Nehemiah, what he wants.
Reason 8: The Historicity of the Old Testament (Tanakh)
The Bible both Old and New Testament were written over a period of time covering more than 1500-years. From 1450 B.C, to almost 100 AD, the words of the Bible were written within the context of the historical events of the day. If the Bible is to be considered accurate and true, the events recorded in the Bible should correspond with the recorded historical events outside of the Bible.
