RESURRECTION: God’s “Purpose of the Ages”

In the previous article, ‘SALVATION’: “God’s Purpose of the Ages” what was covered was the concept that the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation refers to the process of redemptive history.

PMW 2020-101 by Kenneth L Gentry, Jr. This is my fourth and final installment regarding my confusion about Don Preston’s confusion about the disciples’ confusion in Matthew 24:3.

Our God is Greater than Everything

Our God is Greater than Everything I want you to feel confident, if not comfortable, in the current tumultuous climate. This “trifecta” might easily capture your imagination negatively and put a damper on your spirits. It’s hard to remain optimistic when our minds imagine the worst.

Finding Stillness

By the time my husband and I arrived at Paradise to ski with the children, a lenticular cloud had formed over the top of Mount Rainier. These clouds are recognizable from afar as the UFO-shaped formations that often sit atop mountain ranges, an indication of dangerously turbulent air. Pilots take care to avoid them.  From almost directly below, a vantage…

Whatcha Gonna Say?

Whatcha Gonna Say? “Speaking the truth in love” (Eph. 4:15). During the current state of matters an abundance of animated conversation fills our airways, press, and social media.

Rejecting God’s laws and their moral implications does not mean that laws and their moral implications are done away with.

Prophecy Prognosticators are Part of the "Thought Collective"

The following article, Prophecy Prognosticators are Part of the "Thought Collective", was first published on The American Vision. Like clockwork, when something bad happens in the world, Bible prophecy prognosticators start with their end-time claims. They are part of a “thought collective” where adherents share their beliefs in a closed system using the same language and shortcut responses to criticism.…
