God, who desires all men to be saved. 1Ti 2:1-15


How did we end 1 Timothy chapter one? With a bang, as Paul points us to two false teachers within the church. Here is what he said. “Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan, so that they … Continue reading

The Coming Antichrist and the rapture of the church. 2 Thessalonians 2:1-10


Chapter one I had recently written, once again, a study on 2 Thessalonians 2:1-10, and thought I did a fairly good job of making my point, that the rapture comes first and then Antichrist arrives, along with God’s wrath, but … Continue reading

Daniel’s vision of the ram and goat. Daniel chapter 8.


I am doing a quick study on Daniel chapter 8. If you know my writing, then you know that quick is a relative term for me, as this is eight pages long. I took this study on because a teacher, … Continue reading

Paul’s plan to visit the church in Rome. Romans 15:22-33

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1


This idea of confessing, as though it was a continual act of slaughtering a lamb for your sins, does not change God’s heart toward you. 1 John 1:9 NASB says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Continue reading
