Antichrist Suppression of Satanism - November 1, 2022

The antichrist will falsely seen to be the true Messiah of the Jews and Savior of humanity (like false apostles in 2 Corinthians 11:1?5). As such he must appear to be against evil, do good, and preach a message of salvation for humanity, while preparing to do the greatest of evils. More than anyone the antichrist will have "a form of godliness" that all should reject and turn away from (2 Timothy 3:1, 5).
Voting and God's Leaders - October 15, 2022

This Commentary describes what takes place regarding the selection and placement of leaders of nations at the highest levels. God chooses and removes leaders when He desires to do so. Contrary to what some religious groups believe, voting is not a sin and not evil. Citizens do play a part in fulfilling civic responsibilities. We are to ?ender unto Caesar.?(not just with tribute and taxes, but with our service, such as voting.
God Hides, God Reveals - October 1, 2022

Why Does God Conceal Things From Us? We are given a guideline that indicates God Himself hides things and we are to work and search for answers about life: "It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter" (Proverbs 25:1?).

Question, When Does Faith Take Effect? - August 15, 2022

God knows all our sins. Confession, when done in truth and sincerity, benefits only the person confessing. Faith FROM God TO you led you to make your [1] confession of sins and a [2] confession of faith. Faith is a gift FROM God, and it comes through the Word of God (Romans 10:17).
Human Degeneration Increases - August 1, 2022

Powerful individuals who hate human beings ... especially Christians and Israelites. They want us dead ?the sooner the better. Some of the individuals are people, others are spirit beings. They seek to lead us to increase human degeneracy toward evil and separate people from God. They will fail.
Death Is Final - July 15, 2022

"Death is Final" is the July 15, 2022 Commentary. It is important that everyone know there is life after death. Job said: "For I know my redeemer lives ... in my flesh shall I see God." Paul said "there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just AND unjust" (Acts 24:15).

Believers in God and Christ already know their ultimate destination. You will be part of the Kingdom of God. You will be in the presence of God and Christ. We are called to focus on our present journey, to live our lives to please God and Christ in our interactions with others who will be glorified as you will be.
Raised to Mortal Flesh - June 15, 2022

When Christ returns every dead believer in Christ will be resurrected first to a mortal body. Then, almost immediately, we will put on "immortality." Later, unbelievers and reprobate believers will also be raised to a mortal body and then judged for their actions.
Background of the Zerubbabel Temple - June 1, 2022

After the destruction of the Solomonic Temple of YHWH, and after 70 years of exile, the Jews were allowed to return to Jerusalem and rebuild the Temple. Some historians refer to this second structure as the Zerubbabel Temple. Like Solomon's Temple, it was built above the Gihon Spring. It did not contain the Ark of the Covenant which was likely hidden by Jeremiah the prophet (Jeremiah 3:16; 2 Maccabees 2:4?). Who was Zerubbabel and who were those helping to rebuild the Temple?

This writing expands on a short commentary from September 24, 2005. The original title was: "Was the Creatio ex nihilo?" A reader asked: "Do you believe that God created all things from nothing?" Do you believe in any form of the creatio ex nihilo teaching? I explain our understanding.

They may reveal much that you likely have not encountered or understood before.
What Does Soulish Mean? - March 15, 2022

We are ?oulish?from God, but we are not just flesh. Flesh is what our body is at present. The body is the structure of our flesh. The flesh has no capacity to think, but the flesh which makes up the body (?ody of flesh,?Colossians 1:22, 2:11) has needs such as hunger, thirst, weariness, pain, sleep, joy, etc. All are part of being "soulish."

You have received several billion small gifts from God since your birth. Every heartbeat you have and every breath you take has been granted through the amazing system God prepared for us in our marvelous physical bodies. There will come a time when your last heartbeat takes place, your last breath will occur. I will die. You will die. We all will die. Yet your life has been a miracle.
