Mystery of the Virgins

Mystery of the Virgins

The king’s daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold. She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee. With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king’s palace.  Psalm 45:13-15 There are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines, and virgins without number. My dove, my undefiled is but one…  Song of Solomon 6:8,9 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten…

The Coming Great Deception

The Coming Great Deception

In his second letter to the Thessalonians, a church that was eagerly awaiting the return of the Lord to establish His Kingdom on earth, Paul outlined a few events that will come to pass before “the day of the Lord” arrives. The day of the Lord is a general term pointing to an entire series of events that culminate with the Lord Jesus landing on the Mount of Olives and taking up the throne of David in Jerusalem. He says…

The Church in the Wilderness

The Church in the Wilderness

Who is this that cometh up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved? – Song of Solomon 8:5 Chapter 19 of the Book of Revelation describes the future return of the Son of God to the creation.  He is pictured riding a white horse, and there are armies following Him out of Heaven to the earth. Return, return, O Shulamite; return, return, that we may look upon thee. What will ye see in the Shulamite? As it were the company of…

The current Bridal Outpouring

The current Bridal Outpouring

As we rapidly approach the final showdown, God is pouring out on His Church a new revelation of the church’s identity as the Bride of Christ, and Jesus, the soon coming Bridegroom. True believers inside and out of traditional, institutionalized, organized, denominationalized Christianity are turning their attention from their particular denominations, creeds, pet doctrines and other themes and justifications of division to behold the beauty of the Lord and to focus on the intimate relationship He desires to have with His…

Correspondence with S. R. Shearer Regarding the Rapture

Correspondence with S. R. Shearer Regarding the Rapture

The following letter speaks for itself.  It was written to S. R. Shearer, who has a fine web site encouraging Believers to recognize denominationalism for what it is and to step out of the confines of the Institutional Church. In chapter three of section two of his book, “The Antipas Papers,” Shearer states a “commitment to literalism,” which is, of course, a commitment to Dispensationalism.  Shearer states as much, citing the classic Dispensationalism of the likes of Harry Ironside, C. I. Scofield,…

Confusion of Faces and Denominational Christianity

Confusion of Faces and Denominational Christianity

O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day… (Dan. 9:7) If there is one overriding characteristic of modern day Christianity, or “the church at large,” it would have to be simply, confusion. If one studies the tenets of the more than a thousand denominations large and small it is possible to find contradictory teachings regarding nearly any and every doctrine one can think of. There are those who teach “eternal security” and…

How to Avoid End-Time Deception

How to Avoid End-Time Deception

Everyone agrees it’s coming, very few have any idea what it really entails.  Most people will tell you “any Spirit that denies Jesus is Lord,” is the anti-Christ and they have no idea what they are talking about.  If this is what you are depending on to prevent you from being deceived by the spiritual imposters that are coming (that are here today), you don’t have a chance. Here’s a quick rule of thumb you can apply to any prophet,…

The End of the World – The Day is Certain

The End of the World – The Day is Certain

And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. (Rev 9:15-16) How many of us were taught that the timing of the Tribulation and the End of the World was totally dependent on each one of us as individuals…

Prophets to No Profit (Jeremiah 23:31)

Prophets to No Profit (Jeremiah 23:31)

Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine hath overcome, because of the LORD, and because of the words of his holiness. Jeremiah 23:9) I have been led to a number of interesting Web sites over the last month or so and have become familiar with a number of “interesting” prophetic personalities.  The one thing I find “attractive” about them is that…

If Any Man Preach Another Eschatology

If Any Man Preach Another Eschatology

Just as there only two forms of the gospel (the true gospel, and the “another gospel” spoken of by Paul), so there are really only two forms of eschatology that have ever been known in the church. In the case of the gospel, the true gospel is stated in I Corinthians 15.  It states that salvation is by faith in Jesus, the Son of God, as the atonement for our sins and all that stands between us and God. The…
