Daniel’s Dream Interpretation to King Nebuchadnezzar

By Ron Craig
The dreams and visions in the book of Daniel are unique, because end-time events were revealed to both King Nebuchadnezzar and the prophet Daniel, but in different times, with vastly different symbols. Yet, all of them presented what Deity wanted us to know about the end-time events. All the dreams and visions had only one interpretation, although Daniel’s visions were more detailed than were King Nebuchadnezzar’s vision of the giant metal statue representing man.

Pharoah’s Dreams

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Let us look at several Bible examples of dreams and visions, and determine whether each vision had multiple interpretations, or just one interpretation. Genesis chapter 40 tells us that two of Pharaoh’s close servants, his cupbearer, and his baker, had offended their master, and had been thrown into the prison where Joseph had been put in charge of the entire operation. While there, they both had a unique dream, and that in the same night. Not a coincidence! Then, the cupbearer told his dream to Joseph, and Joseph interpreted it. The essence of the dream was that the cupbearer would be restored to his former position in Pharaoh’s service. The cupbearer’s dream-interpretation being positivethe baker wanted Joseph to explain his dream as well: Of course, expecting the interpretation of his dream to be POSITIVE too. Not so, however. The baker was not restored, but executed. Joseph asked the cupbearer to remember him when he was restored to service, but he forgot about Joseph; until a couple of years later when Pharaoh himself had a couple of dreams which disturbed him greatly. After the king’s chief advisers proved unable to grasp the meaning of his night visionsContinue reading Pharoah’s Dreams

CELEBRITIES TO DESCEND UPON GATTMAN PARK NOV. 3-4

We will be judged by what Jesus taught back then

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

John 12:47-50 shows us that Bible interpretation is neither necessary nor God-approved. Let us look closely at our Lord’s own words on that issue. “If any man hears My words, and believes them not, I judge him not [at this time]: For I came not [on this earth-visit] to judge the world, but to save the world. [However,] He who rejects Me and receives not My words has one that will judge him [eventually]: The words that I have spoken [while on earth], the same will judge him in the last day. For I have not spoken of Myself [given a private interpretation of what God might have meant]; but the Father Who sent Me gave Me a commandment, [exactly] what I should say, and [exactly] what I should speak [no room for even Christ’s private interpretation]. Continue reading We will be judged by what Jesus taught back then

Remember the 1986 Governor’s race

Alabama’s leading Political Columnist Steve Flowers

Since this is a gubernatorial election year, allow me to share an epic Governor’s Race with you.

The 1986 Governor’s race will be remembered as one of Alabama’s most amazing political stories. In 1978 Fob James sent the Three B’s, Brewer, Beasley and Baxley packing. Brewer and Beasley had been permanently exiled to Buck’s Pocket, the mythical destination for defeated Alabama gubernatorial candidates. However, Bill Baxley resurrected his political career by bouncing back to be elected lieutenant governor in 1982, while George Wallace was winning his fifth and final term as governor. Another player arrived on the state political scene. Charlie Graddick was elected as a fiery tough lock ‘em up and throw away the key attorney general. Graddick had previously been a tough prosecuting district attorney in Mobile. Continue reading Remember the 1986 Governor’s race

Do not get caught in that demonic trap

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

If 2 Peter 1:20-21 was valid in the first century, why would it not be valid today? Just because the devil has convinced sinners, and much of the church, that the world has changed, and therefore God must have changed as well, that does not make it so! Remember, the devil is a LIAR. That being so, then neither has the world nor the Word of God changed over time (except for technological advances in the world system). That means that private interpretations of Scripture are just as INVALID today as they were back in the first century. Therefore, God does not allow tampering with His Written Word today any more than He did at any time in the past. Thus, Deuteronomy 4:2 is just as current as is 2 Peter 1:20-21. “You must not add to nor take away from what God has commanded in His Word.” Bible interpretation always either adds to or takes away from the original inspired message from on high. Proverbs 30:5-6 even says that every word of God is PURE (thus needs no improvement), and that if we do add to His Wordwe will be proven to be liars. So think. If the devil is a liar, and those who add to God’s Word are liars, that connects Bible interpreters to the devil, and exposes their interpretations as lies. Serious business! Do not get caught in that demonic trap. Continue reading Do not get caught in that demonic trap
