More Promises and Prophecies

“I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God.” (Ex. 6:7) In my previous article I focused primarily on the promises that God made to the Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob-Israel. These promises foretold the multitudinous descendants that would over time flow from the seed of those early Fathers. These promises were made by God face to face with the Patriarchs, the same way that God, some four hundred years later, would converse with Moses (Num. 12:6-8). In the previous article we also established that the Biblical focus would henceforth be...

Promises And Prophecies

“And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people.” (Lev. 26:12) In the narrative of the Bible we find many direct promises made by God and of course innumerable prophecies throughout the Old and New Testaments depicting the intentions that God has in store for His people in the latter days.

In Gen. 35 we read these words which God spoke to Jacob-Israel, “And God...

The Kingdom

“His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and His dominion is from generation to generation.” (Dan. 4:3) There are often questions asked about the Kingdom of God here on Earth, simply because people are uncertain and confused about the conditions of God’s Earthly realm. The most often asked questions are “who will be in the Kingdom” and “what will be the condition of that Kingdom”. We know from Scripture that Christ will sit on the Throne of His Father David, and that His government and peace will increase without end (Isa. 9:7), and that we shall reign with Him in...

The Millennium

A friend of mine recently asked me, how should we or how do we look at the Millennium? Now that is not a light or easy question seeing that throughout the church age until this present time there have been varying views on this subject. Millennium is of course the term depicting the thousand-year reign of our Lord Jesus Christ at the Last Days. There are three basic views on this subject and they are Post-Millennialism, A-Millennialism and Pre-Millennialism. Post-Millennialists hold that Christ will return at the end of a Millennium. They believe that the world will be Christianized...
