    Reflections on My Life and Military Service

    I’ve been reading through the Bible this year using the “As It Happened” Bible Reading Plan in the YouVersion Bible app. Because I started it about a week after the start of the new year, I am a few days behind where I would be if I had started on New Year’s Day. Nevertheless, the […]

  • A Matter of Pride

    “Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18 NKJV) This bit of wisdom from the Hebrew Scriptures has been so popularized throughout the millennia since its initial composition that even secularists who reject the idea of God and His holy Word (the Bible) acknowledge its truth and validity. Furthermore, those […]

  • When Lawlessness Abounds

    When Lawlessness Abounds

    Jesus warned His disciples that in the Last Days — meaning those days that occur just before His ultimate return to take charge of His Kingdom on earth — that lawlessness will abound (Matthew 24:12 NKJV). What, exactly, do you suppose He meant by that? To answer this, all we need to do is define […]

  • Overcoming the Spirit of Fear

    Overcoming the Spirit of Fear

    “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV I’ve noticed a lot of irrational fear among Christians during this COVID19 “pandemic”, as it’s being called. God does not want His people behaving like scared rabbits, nervous cats, or […]

  • The Danger of Deception

    The Danger of Deception

    “Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, ‘Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?’ And Jesus answered and said to them: ‘Take heed that no one deceives you’” (Matthew 24:3-4 NKJV). One […]

  • My Return from Hiatus

    I can hardly believe it has been nearly five years since my last blog post, although I didn’t completely abandon my blog site during that time. In fact, I spent quite a bit of time setting up my blog store at the end of last year, only to have to redo everything–including my entire blog […]

  • Jesus Is Coming Soon

    I’ve been proclaiming that Jesus is coming soon for most of my life. However, I’m convinced that it is now upon us and I’m actually starting to get quite giddy about it! After listening to other respected evangelists preach and teach about the fulfillment of end times prophecies over the years, I’ve gained a great deal […]

  • Full-Tilt Perversion

    The rainbow is a sign of God’s covenant with all of His creation that He will never again destroy the earth with a global flood. He initiated this covenant with Noah and his family following the Great Flood. You can read about it in Genesis 9:8-17. One truly disturbing aspect of the homosexual movement is that […]

  • A Redefining Moment

    Last week’s 5-4 decision by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to mandate the acceptance of homosexual practice in American society was truly a redefining moment in our nation’s history. What I mean by redefining is that they have redefined both what is to be identified as marriage and what is to be accepted as normal […]

  • A Sense of Foreboding?

    All around the world there seems to be a strong sense of foreboding about the future, but a foreboding of what? Is something BIG about to happen in America and the rest of the world? Current events and anticipated near-future events appear to indicate so. Bible prophecy preachers like me have been warning people to prepare […]
