Thus saith יְהוִֹה, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good. Jeremiah 10:2-5 (AV)
In this post we are going to expose the true pagan origins of Christmas and provide the reader with biblical revelation concerning the true spirit of the festive season. We will also trace historical information relating to the origins and traditions surrounding the observance, answering the question – is Christmas really Christian?
Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before יְהוָֹה thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before יְהוָֹה empty: Deuteronomy 16:16 (AV)
In this post we are going to explore the third of three annual high sabbaths of Israel stipulated in the Old Testament–namely the Feast of Tabernacles or ‘Sukkot’ סֻכָּה ‘suka’ in Hebrew meaning ‘a hut, lair, thicket, covert and booth’ – also referred to alternatively as the Feast of Ingathering. As we move forward, we will see the explicit Christological and prophetic significance in these feasts and their impacting power regarding eschatological revelation.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:8-10 (AV)
In this post we are going to briefly explore the excellency of divine grace in terms of its absolute necessity to salvation and biblical immutability. Through the perfect and finished work of Jesus Christ we have access to special divine grace, which not only saves, but preserves the Christian throughout life and death to glorification.
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Revelation 13:18 (AV)
In this post we are going to explore the biblical definition of the mark of the beast and reveal what it actually is among all the speculation out there. It is vitally important today that Christians are made aware of just what the mark of the beast is, its implications upon society and the church and how much time we have before its arrival as we move forward in these escalating end times.
