  • Loving Truth

    Contributed by James Groce on May 5, 2003
    based on 47 ratings
     | 1,458 views

    Pontius Pilate even attempted to engage Jesus Christ in a philosophical discussion of the nature of truth when he asked “What is truth?”

    ******************* Loving truth 2 Thess. 2:10b “…because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” It is sobering to realize that this statement implies that we don’t naturally love the truth. Nor, for that matter, can we be saved without loving the ...read more

    There are four major biblical reasons why the atonement was necessary

    There are four major biblical reasons why the atonement was necessary, most of which are intimately connected with God’s nature or character. 1. God’s Righteousness and Justice Many people who object to the biblical doctrine of the atonement do so because they do not ...read more

    The covenant God made with King David, that from David’s seed a righteous King would sit on the Throne of Israel and reign over Israel forever, was specifically applied to Jesus by Gabriel.

And His name will be called wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of ...read more

  • Forsake Or Be Forsaken

    Some believe repentance means simply to "turn around" and go in the opposite direction. But the Bible tells us repentance is much more than this.

    The Greek word for repentance is metanoia. Meta means "to change or shift" and noia means "perspective." It literally means a change in the way one views things. Repentance means not only saying you’re sorry, it means you are going to genuinely change and mend your ways. John was preaching ...read more

    The whole point of the book of Matthew is to present Jesus as King.

    When anyone was to be crucified, under Roman law, they were marched through as many streets as possible on the way to the place of execution in order that the people might see the victim. In front of the victim there was a man who carried a placard. On the placard was written the crime for ...read more

    Has Israel become, in the eyes of God, a ex-people that now differs nothing from any other peoples of the earth?

    Has Israel become, in the eyes of God, a ex-people that now differs nothing from any other peoples of the earth? Even an ex-wife in the natural human drama never becomes just another woman in the eyes of an ex-husband. Please understand that NO divine promise will ever fail, whether it ...read more

  • The Olivet Discourse As Interpreted By The Apostles

    based on 48 ratings
     | 1,332 views

    Consider the points of correlation between the Olivet Discourse and the writings of the Apostles:

    Certain theology teachers, of past and present, interpret the important Olivet Discourse of Mt 24, Mk 13 and Lk 21 as having been completely and finally fulfilled in A.D. 70 at the destruction of Jerusalem and accompanying events. Consider the points of correlation between the Olivet ...read more

  • Prophecy Always Hits The Bullseye!

    Contributed by James Groce on Aug 26, 2002
    based on 53 ratings

    Prophets, to be legitimate, must stand the test of time.

    (If it misses—it’s a lie) Prophets, to be legitimate, must stand the test of time. If the prophet was not completely correct 100% of the time he is a false prophet. Prophecy, to be valid, must predate the event; must be precise enough so as to not be vague; must have enough events described to ...read more

    Revelation 22:6, "And he said to me, ’These words are faithful and true’; and the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent His angel to show to His bond-servants the things which must shortly (táchos) take place."

    Observations Gleaned From Reading Partial Preterism After reading over some of the comments and teachings of the individuals that profess belief in a “partial preterism” theory I sense they have created a dilemma in their teachings. I see no other way around the fact that even though they ...read more

  • Arguments To Consider

     | 1,294 views

    That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

    Arguments to consider when studying Partial Preterism The booklet promotes the theory that all (or most) of the events prophesied in the New Testament (including those in Revelation) were fulfilled in the past, specifically in 70 AD. The idea is that with the Roman siege of Jerusalem and ...read more

  • Prophecy In The Rear View Mirror

     | 986 views

    Indeed, to hear that "Christ really did come in A.D. 70" reminds one of those against whom Jesus warned us about.............

    I recently came across a booklet that declared that all prophecy is now only a thing of the past. This booklet stated that the book of Revelation is only a historic account of things long ago fulfilled. We will discuss a few of the points that this booklet in vain tried to make. Perusing thru ...read more

  • Do I Hear An Amen?

    Contributed by James Groce on Jul 17, 2002
    based on 61 ratings
     | 3,036 views

    "Amen" is far more meaningful than a period, a stop, or a signing-off word by which a prayer, song, or declaration is terminated.

    In Scripture the word “Amen” comes from both Greek and Hebrew and is transliterated; which means there is no word in our language that can be interpreted exactly...so we used their word and in this case it is AMEN. It is variously translated Surely, Sure, Truth, Verily and Amen! Bullinger ...read more
