Matt 24: [40] Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. [41] Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one left In the early 70’s, at the height of the Jesus Movement a young, long blond haired “hippie” named Larry Norman penned […]

Like with the end of our discussion of the daniel 70 Week prophecy, here is a brief review of the key points to remember. The discourse is in response to the Disciple’s questions, which were inspired by Jesus’ attack on the Pharisees The questions were about the coming judgment not the end of the world […]

No single character is more closely associated with modern evangelical eschatology than the mysterious man known as the Antichrist. He has starred in popular movies, been the primary character in the best selling novel series in Christian Publishing history and has been predicted to arrive on the scene every generation since the first century AD. […]

Unlike the previous character discussed, the Antichrist, the present subject of our discussion has quite a bit of Biblical dissertation regarding it/him. The Beast of Revelation.

The first is that it represents a nation made up of king and resides on a city amongst seven hills. Though one of it’s heads (kings) receives a mortal wound, the nation continues to […]

We continue or discussion on this Beast of Revelation. Under consideration is Nero, Emperor of Rome. As we saw in the previous discussion that the Biblical clues to the potential identity of the Beast were as follows; Ruler of a Nation set on Seven Hills This would be Rome The sixth head was alive at […]

Revelation 13:16  Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, 17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. Second […]

In the previous post we took note of the various and sometimes outrageous claims of prophecy prognosticators regarding the mysterious “Mark of the Beast.” There were two very consistent themes that bore themselves out. The first was that the mark ideas were very similar and they were all wrong. The second was that they all […]
