Everyone who loves and practices lying. Revelation 22:15.


In the last post, I focused on Revelation 22:14 and people outside the Holy City who could not enter through any of its gates during the millennial reign because their robes were NOT washed. We have to make the assumption, … 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

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

Is it possible that the image causes those who do not worship the image to be killed? Rev 13:15.


 A recent internet post attempted to make the argument that the image of the beast, that has been given breath, causes those who do not worship the image to be killed. My immediate reaction is that this is not right; I have never heard that … Continue reading

And, I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain. Revelation 13:3,4.


Recently, while talking to the son-in-law, he asks me, how do the events going on around us tie into the church’s being caught up and the antichrist entering upon the scene. He has his own ideas, but he does NOT read a … Continue reading

This is in response to a video made for a class, put on by the World Video Bible School. The teacher in that class was not identified. Where Do We Go When We Die? James 2:26 tells us, The body … Continue reading

When desire has conceived. James 1:15-27


I ended the last post on the book of James with this: Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone. … Continue reading

Paul tells us why Romans 8:1 works. Romans 8:2-4.


We learned in Romans 8:1 that there is NOW (an ever-present tense) NO condemnation. To me, an obvious conclusion is that this applies to my relationship with the Father through Jesus Christ. So what does Romans 8:2 tell us? For … Continue reading

Paul tells us why Romans 8:1 works. Romans 8:2-4.

Dead to sin, alive to God. Romans 6:1-9.


So here is how Romans chapter five closes: God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. So just as sin ruled … Continue reading
