Who is the elect and can they be deceived? Matthew 24:24.

And the city has no need for the sun. Revelation 21: 10-27.

Evidence of the Holy City coming down at the beginning of the millennium is scattered and, in a sense, hidden. Revelation 21:9-11.


 Back to Bible study.  Finally, we have come to the New Heaven; and no, we are not in transition, “awaiting our resurrection to the New Earth,” as Randy Alcorn would tell you. That is nothing more than slop that people have … Continue reading

I have been on a rant about false teachers lately.


Seeing as I have been on a rant about false teachers lately I thought I should add one more.     Two more guys I tend to respect were recently speaking on the subject “are there prophets in these last days.” … Continue reading

Soul sleep and the transitional period. Where do we go when we die?


The motivation for writing, in this case, initiated with the study that I have been doing on the Revelation, where, at the moment, we are in chapters 21 and 22. Those chapters focus on a new heaven and a new … Continue reading

Who are these people and why are they now having an impact? Rev 21: 8-10.


When the Apostle John was given the Revelation dream or the vision, he tells us, the reader,  “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet,” … Continue reading

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Rev 21:4.


With this post, we heroically move forward, hopefully beyond verse four, but first, I feel the need to recap where we are in this journey. We closed out our last look at Revelation 21, discussing verse three, which reads like … Continue reading

What can we know about Heaven?

And God himself will be among them. Revelation 21:3.


So, in Revelation 20, Satan, having been released from the pit, makes a last-ditch effort to kill off God and His people. Satan was only able to accomplish an attack of this size by deceiving the nations. If you are wondering, Revelation refers … Continue reading

Let’s assume you read my last post and now have a confidence that allows you to describe how: The surviving Jews enter the millennial kingdom and become evangelists. “In that day … the survivors of Israel.” (Isaiah 4:2 NASB) “For out of Jerusalem will … Continue reading
