It’s a Mystery - April 1, 2014

This month’s article is “The Book of Haggai, Time Prophecies.” First read the “April 2014 Newsletter“ which gives important background material. The article uses the Book of Haggai to explain the mystery of God’s prophecies and how they may seem ambiguous to us and misapplied, when in fact they are precise in their fulfillment. One aspect about our salvation is frequently misunderstood. It also is a mystery. In the movie "Shakespeare in Love" a fictional story is told of how Shakespeare’s play "Romeo and Juliet" came to be written. There is a scene early in the movie which establishes a theme about chaos which is repeated throughout the movie. It also describes our life as human beings.
Russia on the Move - March 17, 2014

The nation of Russia has been in the news with its political pressure on the nation of Ukraine. Specifically, as of this date Russian troops have effectively occupied the peninsula of Crimea in the north of the Black Sea. International tensions have increased while political and economic effects are felt in the region and across Europe. This has only slight impact on biblical prophecy.
Illegal Israelite Temples - March 1, 2014

This month's article is “The Book of Haggai” by Dr. Ernest L. Martin. The messages from God through the prophet Haggai are about the reconstruction of the Jerusalem Temple after the people of Israel returned from Babylon. You will enjoy Dr. Martin’s analysis. In this Commentary, I want to remind you that other Jewish temples were built which were not legitimate.
Visible and Invisible - February 16, 2014

There is an invisible realm. God is invisible to us at present (John 6:46; 1 Timothy 1:17; 1 John 4:12). In fact, the vast majority of God’s creation (physical and spiritual) is invisible to us (Colossians 1:12-17).
The End of Strange - February 1, 2014

This month’s article is “Oz Internet Radio Show, Part 2.” It continues my interview by Paul Jamieson and James Westin in October 2013. More strange things are spoken about in this second part of the show. Read first the “February 2014 Newsletter.” In last month’s “January 2014 Newsletter,” I pointed out that several strange topics were discussed and that God’s creation is strange — to us. In this Commentary, I want to demon-strate that in the future nothing will be “strange” to us.
Important Questions in Life - January 17, 2014

What are the important questions in life that most of us ask ourselves at some time during our lives? The answers are found in the Bible. These important questions are explained.
A Strange World - January 1, 2014

The article for January 2014 is “Oz Internet Radio Show” where I am interviewed by one host in Australia and his co-host in California. The discussion topics are wide-ranging in scope, discussing the important issues of life: the nature of God, the nature of salvation, and the nature of death. Read first the “January 2014 Newsletter.” Strange things are discussed in the interview, and some of these events, supernatural events, are outside our normal lives.
