Jezebel and Athaliah

We have been talking about how Israel was the harlot of the Old Testament because the people turned away from God and went to serve other gods; that is the definition of harlotry. We also talked about how King Ahab was an idol worshipper who worshipped Baal, built altars to the gods and built Asherah. […]

Irenaeus’ Notorious Statement

By now, the reader should understand that most of man’s misunderstanding and theology of the end times stem from Irenaeus. It is, therefore, essential that we fully understand his ideas and his writings on this subject to see exactly how this all came about. He made his aforementioned alluded-to notorious statement only one time, which […]

Introduction to Revelation II

Last time we looked at one of the primary reasons that have led to the mistaken view of the book of Revelation. That reason is the King James Version of the Bible and its mistranslation of αἰών. While it is a significant error, that incorrect translation of αἰών is not, in itself, the only reason […]

As they were passing through Jericho, we see this, “While they were listening to these things, Jesus went on to tell a parable, because He […]

Laborers in the Vineyard

There was much that Jesus taught about money and commerce in the gospels. We must keep in mind that we have been talking about kingdom parables, and therefore, as we said, the things discussed are things that occur in the kingdom. We further noted that it is unlikely that these things occur in heaven, which […]

The Ungrateful Slave

The parable of the sower gave an overall picture of how the kingdom of God, which Jesus also called the kingdom of heaven, is “inhabited” with God’s people. Then the wheat and tares showed that, among His people, the devil also put his people, called stumbling blocks and those who commit lawlessness, in an attempt […]
