I have just completed a little series of blog/videos called My View Of The End Times. Each blog is only about one page long and in the series I give a brief explanation of my understanding of End Times and why I believe in a PreWrath Rapture.
Below is the first blog in the series. The rest can be found at the following link -…

Are Our Future Sins Forgiven?

In John 19:29-30, after He had a drink of sour wine, Jesus said, “It is finished,” and this is thought by many to mean that a Christian's past, present and…Continue

Is Matt. 24 Only For The Jews?
Jesus said, “Watch out that no one deceives you.” (Matt. 24:4)
Many Christians believe that Jesus is going to return twice. They say that the first time is in 1 Thess. 4-5 when He comes secretly to take all Christians to heaven before the Great…Continue

Is obedience optional or necessary for salvation?
Is obedience necessary for salvation or is it an option that we can take or leave? What exactly is required of us to be eternally saved? Some say that we don't need to be obedient but only need to believe, just know, that Jesus died for us because John 3:16 simply says that if you believe you will be saved. Let's…Continue

Doubt, The Faith Killer
“Lord help my unbelief.” (Mark 9:24)
Surely the greatest desire of anyone seeking a closer walk with the Lord is to have less doubt and a stronger faith. How often I shake my head for being so slow to trust the Lord despite the many clear promises He has given us. God…Continue

A look at Peter's character.
Peter is often spoken of in disrespectful terms as though he was foolishly outspoken or always putting his foot in his mouth. I even heard a sermon in which he was called a fool for getting out of the boat to walk on the water. However, I think Peter showed a lot of courage and faith and simply wore his heart…Continue

A short discussion proving the Trinity.
Many books have been written on the Trinity but I don't think anyone has ever honestly claimed to fully understand it. Our limited minds can never understand our infinite God any more than a computer can understand its manufacturer. The…Continue

Confessing And Repenting
Is there any connection between confessing sin and repenting of it?
In 1 John 1:9 (ESV) Christians are told, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins ..." So, when we confess our sins we are forgiven but what does it mean to confess? Many…Continue

The Man And The Birds
"The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us."
This is a story of an average man, not a scrooge but a kind, decent and mostly good man. He was generous to his family and upright in his dealings with other men. However, he just…Continue

Recognising The Antichrist
"… he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God."
(2 Thess. 2:4)
The Bible tells us that one day a man, called the Antichrist, will appear in the Temple (yet to be built) and declare himself to be God. 2 Thess.…Continue

Returning God's Love
Jesus said, "If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching."
Rom 5:8 tells us, "God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Through the cross, our heavenly Father clearly…Continue

The Two Wolves
"I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses.
Now choose life." (Deu. 30:19)

"God is love." (1 John 4:16)
As we look at the evil in this sin-sick world it is easy to see why non-believers say that God cannot be a God of love. It's hard to find words to describe how low mankind has sunk and, despite all the empty talk, things are only going to get worse until Jesus…

You Don't Have To Take It Any More
"Sin shall not be your master." (Rom. 6:14)
I don't think that there can be greater heartache than knowing Jesus and yet still be a slave to sin. It's common knowledge that there are many churchgoers secretly addicted to pornography, alcohol, drugs and other sins.…Continue
