Two Yahweh Figures – Theophany

There are different ways to share Yeshua with Jews. One is to point how Yeshua is in the Torah with the prophetic types and symbolism pointing to Him. Another is to point out that there are over 300 prophecies of the Messiah fulfilled in Yeshua. This is a statistical impossibility to happen by mere chance. (…/353prophecies.html) Another way to share that Yeshua was the Messiah with Jews is to point out that there are several appearances of God revealing Himself in person to different people in the Bible. Bible scholar in residence for Logos Bible Software points out the

The Trumpet of Pentecost – by Lisa Richards

The Trumpet of Pentecost By Lisa Richards The first Pentecost occurred following the nation of Israel’s exodus from Egypt. They came to the foot of Mt. Sinai where God instructed Moses to consecrate the people and have them wash their clothes. Then at the sound of the trumpet they were to approach the mountain. This is significant because this is also the first time the word trumpet is mentioned in the Bible. “When the trumpet sounds long, they shall come near the mountain.” – Exodus 19:13. Therefore this is the first divine trump heard by God’s people as the

Does God Always Reveal His Purpose?

There are a number of examples where God does not reveal his purpose until later. The biggest example that stands out is the Mystery of Christ. Ephesians 3:3-6 (KJV) 3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, 4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) 5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; 6 That the Gentiles should be fellow-heirs, and

Day of the Lord

The Day of the Lord is mentioned 20 times in 8 Old Testament books. Luke quotes Joel in Acts 2:20, Paul refers to it in 1 Thessalonians 5:2 and Peter mentions it. The big question to look into is whether the Day of the Lord is one single day or a period of time. A key verse in this appears to be Acts 2:20 which quotes Joel 2:31 20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: “Before” appears to be a key word meaning

Problems with Post Trib Rapture

Views on when the rapture will take place is not a salvation issue, so in most cases we can agree to disagree. There are respectable scholars that disagree. That being said, there are some very key issues that you have when taking a post-tribulational viewpoint. The first is a mis-understanding of who the Church is and who Israel is. We currently are nearing the end of the dispensation of Grace. This is where there is neither Jew nor Gentile (Galations 3:28). All have access to God through Jesus. When we accept Jesus as savior, we’re in the Church. The

Jezebel Spirit

After Ephesus,the Apostolic church which was great on doctrine, but lost it’s first love came Smyrna, the persecuted church. Through this persecution, nothing bad was said in the letter. Pergamos married the world by adopting idols, customs and practices that were happening in the era. The persecution stopped because these practices were adopted and blended into Christianty. This brought forth Thyatira which is the medieval church. The thing that stands out in this letter is Jezebel. 20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and

Between the 69th and 70th Week

25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. Dan 9:25 (KJV) This is a very specific prophecy that has a start point and an end point. The weeks referred to in this prophecy are weeks of years. The start point is the commandment to restore and build Jerusalem. This was the decree of Artaxerxes Longimanus that was given on March 14,
