When the disciples saw Jesus walking toward them on the stormy Galilee waters none could comprehend the site. After fearfully crying out their fears of seeing a ghost, Jesus called out. “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water,” Peter cried back. And Jesus said, “Come!” And Peter got out of the boat, and WALKED ON THE WATER and came toward Jesus.” Jesus empowered Peter to miraculously WALK ON WATER when he set his eyes on Jesus and believed His word…

06c The Mighty Angel Saying Interpreting the Rules of Revelation

Bible prophecy. Can the ordinary every day pew warming Christian understand these passages of Scripture that  make up one third of the Bible’s text? “No,” so many prophetic “experts” seem to say.

But a studied hermeneutic of her vision reveals there is more to the harlot’s coming than a central locale. In fact, if you look closely, you will realize that she is not a central place, and that she is already here.

RussiaIran 2014 Prophetic Year in Review

For those of us watching possible fulfillment of prophecy in 2013 and 2014, eyes on Russia and Iran were particularly fascinating. Ezekiel 38 speaks of a “Gog” led last-days Israel invasion that will include Persia, the modern nation of Iran, and most of the current middle east.  I cite two possibilities of who the Eschaton’s

I’m still not sure how I got the nod to chair our little church’s pulpit committee last summer. When I asked what led to my choice, I was simply told, “It’s God’s will.” I’d been at our little two hundred member congregation three years and served on the board a month. I really liked Pastor
