But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

It seems the only thing the world knows how to do is “mourn” and become “saddened” by the atrocities committed by radical Islamists.

I’m sure you’ve heard of the Brussels suicide bombing, which killed 34 people and injured many more, is simply the latest in the ongoing butchering by the Islamic group known as...

Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution: Birth Pang 5

Written by

A one-world government is coming. It’s on its way and there’s nothing you nor I can do to stop it. How do I know this? Because it is very clear from God’s Word that a global system of governance is going to exist during the last few years leading up to the physical return of Jesus Christ.

In our most recent installment of this...

Satanism in Hollywood? Not Necessarily What You Might Think Featured

Written by

There are a lot of videos, books, and Internet sites dedicated to the subject of exposing what is believed to be Satanism running amok in Hollywood. I won’t name any of the particular sites and I don’t even feel the need to highlight any specific videos or articles here because they’re available to anyone who has access...

What is Easter All About? Featured

Too many churches today emphasize this…

We are fast approaching Easter, which is celebrated this year Sunday, March 27th. Many churches are already sending out their notices to let people know of this very important celebration of the Christian faith.

Let me ask you a question, which church would you be more likely to attend based...

Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution: Birth Pang 4B

Written by

Last time, we talked about the Northern Invasion coordinated and led by a guy with the title of “Gog” in Scripture (Ezekiel 38-39). We spoke of how God would plant an idea into Gog’s brain and Gog would think it was his idea. In all likelihood, he was probably thinking about it and wondering how he might pull it off for some...

The home of Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford in the 1920s.

Decades ago, in the early 1900’s, a man by the name of Douglas Fairbanks (born Douglas Elton Thomas Ullman in 1883), rose to the height of fame in the very early years of Hollywood’s Golden Era. Fairbanks founded United ArtistsThe Motion Picture Academy, and...

In our previous post in this series – Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution: Birth Pang 3 – we dealt with the unification of Jerusalem that occurred following the Six-Day War in 1967. Though this particular war was not highlighted in Scripture, we noted that the results of it likely are since the Bible speaks...

Entering the Narrow Way Leading to Life

Clara Bow, the “It” Girl of the 1920’s

This may seem like an odd post, but stick with me. I’m a history buff. I really enjoy reading about historical events and I also enjoy reading good biographies about famous people because they help bring the reality of historical events to life.

Lately, I’ve been doing some reading...

Like Birth Pang #2 from our last two articles here and here, the third Birth Pang also has to do with Israel and Jerusalem specifically. By the way, before it’s forgotten again, a great book on this subject that helps flesh out the Bible’s meaning on the various Birth Pangs is a book by Dr. Arnold G. Fruchtenbaum called, Footsteps...

Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution: Birth Pang 2B

Written by

In our last article – Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution: Birth Pang 2 – we highlighted the fact that Birth Pang #2 is all about Israel. Unfortunately, too many Bible commentators today ignore the plain and obvious meaning of Scripture and instead opt for a more allegorical meaning to suit their purposes. This literally c...

Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution: Birth Pang 2

I’ve changed the name of this current series slightly to focus in on the Birth Pangs noted in Scripture that lead us up to the end of this age. It makes more sense because things become very specific.

In our previous post in this series – Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution, Part 6 – we zeroed in on earthquakes, famines, and...

Expect Even Less Discernment as the End of the Age Approaches Featured

Written by

 Our last article touched on something that is extremely important for today’s Christian to understand: discernment or in the case of our last article, the lack of discernment that appears to be in place in too many churches today and therefore, is lacking in the lives of too many Christians. This subject is a crucial one...

Lack of Discernment is Astounding in Some Churches Featured

Being out-of-town visiting relatives, we went to their church with them. I did some checking on the church after I found out the name of it. I looked at their statement of beliefs and a few of their “position papers” and it was unfortunate that I knew I didn’t agree. The reality seems to be that their position papers did not seem...

Christianophobia? Not Enough Lions? What?

Toward the end of 2014, two guys wrote a book about the growing trend that is rising to the surface. No, it’s not homophobia or Islamophobia.

This new phenomenon is best called Christianophobia. The book – So Many Christians, So Few Lions – explores the growing problem of people who simply hate Christians and...

Author Richard Abanes tries to prove that earthquakes decreased worldwide. Unfortunately, he is completely incorrect. There are many problems with the information he presents in his book. Clearly, earthquakes have been on the rise and have increased in ferocity as well. (Image created by F. DeRuvo for Study-Grow-Know Ministries.)

Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution, Part 5

We ended our last installment – Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution, Part 4 – highlighting the fact that after Jesus had just pronounced the upcoming destruction of the Jewish Temple (Matthew 24:1), the disciples then asked Him several important questions. Culled from Matthew 24:3, they are:

  1. When will these things happen?
  2. What...

Artist’s rendering of what the Temple Mount probably looked like during the time of Jesus.

In Matthew 24, Jesus points out a number of things that He knew would be written down and kept until the end of this current age. In essence, much of what He taught in His Olivet Discourse there was for those living during the final portion of time...

Remaining faithful to the end is going to be a question for many believers…

Is Jesus Our Heavenly Handyman?

Jesus came to give salvation and to fellowship with us, not to be our Heavenly Handyman…

In our first post in this series – Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution, Part 1 – we introduced the subject of the End Times.

These people have no clue, but they sadly persist in their ignorance.

This is a difficult subject to write about mainly because people don’t want to hear it. Today, many Christians are involved in concerted efforts to bring America back to its roots (whatever that means). They pray for it, attend rallies, pick and choose the...

Portraits of Fellowship, Part 5: Moses

In our previous installment in this series – Portraits of Fellowship, Part 4: Moses – we continued to highlight the correct way in which Moses responded to the tests and trials that the Israelites faced.

Portraits of Fellowship, Part 4: Moses

 We wrote most recently of Moses and his ability to follow the Lord in spite of the people around him who acted like they were going to harm him (Exodus 14). Specifically, in Exodus 14:11-12 as we highlighted last time, the people were sarcastic, filled with anger, and had completely ignored the numerous times that God had helped...

What the parting of the Red Sea might have looked like if Google satellite images existed then.

In Exodus, there are specific examples of Moses, his leadership, and his submission to God, which allowed him to be in fellowship with God. In effect, Moses entered into fellowship with God by submitting to Him in what we could easily call...

Not All Jews Believe in Any God

Petra, built into solid rock and once part of Edom, is now an abandoned city in Jordan. Likely thinking they were invincible, they were overcome by the Babylonians in the 6th century BC.

I was reminded again this morning of people who are Jewish by birth but often have no real belief system apart from the lies of the left. Though we Christians tend...
