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

Last time, we discussed the religious and likely physical aspects of Babylon, based on Revelation 17. In this installment, I want to look at what Revelation 18 has to say about Babylon.

One of the very first things we see in the opening verses of Revelation 18 is an angel who declares with a loud...

Babylon and Its System, Part 1

Written by

When reading and studying the book of Revelation (or biblical prophetic passages in general), too many people see things that don’t exist. They do so because they think that there are meanings within meanings in prophetic passages instead of continuing to use the proper hermeneutic. In the...

Charles G. Finney: Hero or Heretic?

Written by

At its root, an evangelist, in the biblical sense, is someone appointed by God to tell others the “good news” (the Gospel). In that sense then, all Christians are to be involved in evangelism (Matthew 28). It is the responsibility of each and every Christian to tell other people about...

What Rest Do Christians Enter Into?

Written by

If you turn to Hebrews 4, the human author of Hebrews begins to focus on something extremely important: the “rest” that God has determined for us.

1 Therefore, while the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us fear lest any of you should seem to have failed to reach it. 2 For...

I’ve written a few articles on the Shroud of Turin. They can be found here and here. I’ve actually been studying the subject of the Shroud for quite some time. I’ve come to the conclusion that it is likely a genuine artifact. I say that understanding that there are many others who...

Down into the Sewer?

Years ago, I worked at McDonald’s. It was my first “real” job in high school and into junior college. I learned everything about McDonald’s from deep frying fries to cooking hamburgers to creating the shakes. At that time, the shakes were still put together and mixed on the...

What is Revival?

Written by

For as long as I’ve been a Christian, I’ve heard the term “revival.” I’m sure you have as well. The main problem with the word is twofold. First, it doesn’t appear in Scripture.[1] Second, it means something different to each person. In effect there is no...

Truth Suppression

Written by

In the very first chapter of Romans, the apostle Paul discusses the reality of what people do who are not authentic Christians. Essentially, they suppress the truth in either how they live or what they say.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of...

I used to be involved in the modeling industry (the type of models you build and paint), as a hobbyist and producer. Those days are long gone and as much as I’d like to continue building and painting models, I’ve found that I have little time to do so even though I’m essentially...

Strength to Strength or Emotion to Emotion?

Written by

The Bible makes it clear that Christians who mature in the Lord go from “strength to strength.” I believe this is referring to our strength of faiththrough which we depend upon the Lord for His provision in all areas. As we trust the Lord in the smaller things, the Lord provides more...

Hope for Seven Year-Old James Younger

The updated version of the situation regarding seven year-old James Younger, whose non-biological mother wants him to transition from a male to a female, is that there is hope. All authentic Christians should be praying regarding this situation. There is no excuse at all not to do so.

In many ways, it appears that the world – certainly the USA – is becoming a soap opera of the most deadly kind, with dramatic changes that by all accounts, are abysmally insane. There’s no other way to describe it. The insanity of the immoral Left is taking over many areas of...

Just a quick word on my health and my wife’s upcoming surgery this Wednesday. It’s been several weeks since I quit coffee and it’s been a bit up and down. That’s probably normal for someone who has been drinking one to two cups of coffee daily for years.
