In Luke 21 Jesus preaches a sermon about the End of the World. The end of the world is easier to comprehend when we can compare it to the world around us. That is what Jesus does. He points to things they knew and said amplify that, multiply that-exponentially, then you will understand what is coming. Basically Jesus describes a Global Final Holocaust-not merely of Jews and Christians-but of humans! Within that message is what amounts to a survival guide to believers who have...

Dear Roger,I am scared. It seems that the world is falling apart and I have so many questions. How will we know who the Antichrist is? Are we Christians going to suffer through all the violence and disasters talked about in Revelation? When will the rapture take place? Can you sort these things out for me?Sincerely, Angie Dear Angie,I wish that I could answer all of your questions clearly and with great certainty. Unfortunately, God has chosen not to give us all the information...

To better understand the person of the antichrist, you can begin by reading Revelation 13:1-4. As you read, ask God to help you understand His Word (Psalms 119:73).

With your Bible still accessible, consider the following insights on the biblical text, verse by verse. The below points about the antichrist will help us understand what he is, what he will...

Dear Roger, Our small group had a long discussion about the Battle of Armageddon. One thing we tried to discuss with intelligence was the Battle of Armageddon and the maneuvering of the nations in battle for the end times. We wondered where and how Jesus fit in with the Battle? Will America be involved? We read Jesus’ Olivet Discourse in Matthew 24 where He describes the times and the signs preceding the Second Coming. With wars and rumors of wars, and earthquakes and volcanic...

Dear Roger, You said in today’s post that you will post your answer to “what does 666 mean” when somebody asks you. May I please be considered a “somebody” so that you will do so?  I, too, believe in “types and shadows” and do believe that the Bible is to be read both historically and predictively. We are certainly living in some very frightening, scary times, aren’t we? The antichrist knows his days are numbered...

This world can be a dark place. Sometimes it’s hard to see light and hope in the midst of all the suffering and pain that surrounds us.

We’ve seen hurricanes and natural disasters wreak havoc in different places around the globe. Top news headlines reveal constant struggles, pain, and brokenness that people everywhere are facing. Maybe you’re facing it too. Our...

“real freedom is freedom from the opinion of others. above all, freedom from your own opinions about yourself.”  brennan manning Every day I wrote Finding Spiritual Whitespace, the critical voice in me would say, “Who do you think you are? You think someone wants to read this? Don’t waste your time.” Maybe you hear similar voices about your own art or about spending time or attention on something you enjoy — a seed that’s...

Did you know that the purpose of life is to pursue and live in an intimate relationship with God? Salvation is our rescue from the sentence of death because of sin, but intimacy is to define our life with Him. Yet, when we consider pursuing intimacy with God, our human nature allows for misconceptions and hesitation. What are the common misconceptions about intimacy with God? Misconception #1: Intimacy is akin to sex. First, in a world that regularly defines “intimacy” as something...

No other question is more important than “Who is God?” Get this one right — and experience who He is each day — and you’ll enjoy life to the full! We see this in Deuteronomy 7:12-13, Psalm 16:2, John 10:10, and James 1:17. We also see this today.  One of my mentors told me, “I am convinced that the answers to every problem and issues of life for both time and eternity are resolved through a correct understanding of God.” What hope!  Another...

There are thousands of books about leadership, written by CEOs, pastors and coaches. These types of people have experience leading others in a common goal, so it makes sense that they’d be the ones to pass on principles on the topic of leadership. Being a sports fan, I’ve always appreciated the leadership role of a coach. It’s amazing to me how they can get so many individuals parts to work in concert, each playing their particular role in moving the team toward a common...
