God took a risk in creating angels and men with freedom to choose

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Human beings have been from the beginning representatives of the Creator. “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion over the earth and everything in it (Genesis 1:26).” And that dominion extended even into outer space. Read Psalms 8:3-8. Angels, […]

The Great Tribulation

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

The three-and-one-half-year mystery solved: I said that the Antichrist will be concerned first with securing his absolute authority over the ten kingdoms that will be the residue of the old Roman Empire Territory. However, right now there are more than twenty nations in that old territory. […]

Tribulation is increasing around the world

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

   I need to take further one of my pertinent previous points. It is a sadistictheology that seeks to place the church in the middle of the Great Tribulation. It is a demonic concept that pain makes people better people. If that is so, then why did Jesus Christ bear our […]

Only people who are loyal to Jesus Christ are destined to win

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

The literal title, “antichrist,” appears only in the letters of First and Second John. However, the actual human being, his plans and actions, are prophesied for the most part in the books of Daniel and Revelation. Additional information about the end-times and the shenanigans of the antichrist is found in Ezekiel […]

The gifts and calling of God are without repentance

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Although numerous other Scripture passages make it obvious that God did not scrap Israel for the church, this passage ought to forever settle the issue. Romans 11:25-29: “I [Paul] would not, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you would be wise […]

Under New Covenant God will never forsake Israel as a nation

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Additional Scriptures which reveal that God will continue to deal with the nation of Israel both now and forever. “I [Paul] would not, brethren, that you would be ignorant of this mystery, lest you would be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in […]

THE WORD THAT HE COMMANDED TO A THOUSAND GENERATIONS

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

“Know that the LORD your God, that he is God, the faithful God, Who keeps covenant and mercy with those who love Him and keep His commandments, to a thousand generations (Deuteronomy 7:9).” What covenant could Moses have been referring to if not that Abrahamic […]

GOD REMEMBERS HIS PROMISES

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Other Scriptures prove that Israel will always be God’s chosen people, as well as the church. One is God’s eternal promise to King David. “I have made a covenant with My chosen: I have sworn unto David My servant ‘Your seed will I establish forever, and […]

THAT WHICH DECAYS AND BECOMES OLD IS READY TO VANISH AWAY

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

God’s covenant with Abraham started with Abraham, not Moses. Thus, the Old Testament Mosaic law was not the basis of that covenant. Paul himself said that, “Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing. But the keeping of the commandments of God [is what it is all about] […]

Why is Revelation written to the Church and not the Jews?

Now, if Daniel and Revelation describe Israel’s end-time troubles, and not the church’s troubles, then why is Daniel in our Bible, and why is the book of Revelation written to the church and not to the Jews? A good question! Part of the answer: Most of the Old Testament was written about Israel, and […]

Tribulation passages to help us see the Bible truth about tribulation

These things I spoke to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation: But be of good cheer; I overcame the world (John 16:33). […]

Satan wants everyone to be lost and go to hell

The word tribulation itself seems to be shrouded in mystery. So, let us take a little side journey to demystify that subject. Many obviously think that, if the church does not go through the last-days Tribulation, it will not go through any tribulation. We Christians will miss out on that wonderful blessing. Huh? First […]

Believers to be reunited with their glorified bodies and meet Christ in the air

More Pre-Tribulation Scripture passages: First Corinthians 15:51-52 (KJV): “Behold, I show [reveal to] you a mystery; We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed; in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we […]

Who is the end-time Restrainer?

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

One of the hang-ups of end-time speculators is the argument about who or what will be removed from this planet before the Tribulation begins. Of course, that issue is fervently discussed only among those believers who believe in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the church.

[…]

Tribulation cannot begin until some human entity is removed from the earth

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

More biblical light regarding end-time events and the catching away of the church. One more Scripture passage those experts seem to have overlooked is Luke 17:26-30. Teaching on last-days events, the Lord said plainly that, just as it was in the days of both Noah and […]

Ron Craig: More on end time events and prophecy

Solomon’s Temple

All seventy sevens of years Gabriel informed Daniel about have to do with the Jews. If those first seven and sixty-two concern Israel, then that seventieth seven does as well! Why those two first divisions, which come short of seventy? Seven and sixty-two equal sixty-nine. The first division obviously refers to […]

The Church is divided over Tribulation

The church is actually divided over the second major end-time teaching error, regarding whether or not the church will go through the Tribulation time spoken of in Jeremiah, Daniel, Matthew, Mark and Luke, and in some of Paul’s letters, and finally in the book of Revelation. The prime supposed evidence the experts use to […]

There are major flaws in most end time prophecies

Before exposing the next major end-time teaching error, let me mention one more Scripture passage that may just provide more light on the exposure of this first of the major errors. Revelation 16:12 states that in those last days the Euphrates River will be dried up to make way for the kings from the […]

Sometimes their expertise is not so expert after all

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

But, what about Ezekiel 38 and 39? Daniel 11:44 is key. As the Antichrist is about to enter Jerusalem to crush it, “news from the east and the north will trouble him, and he will go out [obviously in those directions] to destroy and to annihilate […]

The Bible identifies where the Anti-Christ will come from

Let me expose first the erroneous teaching that the Antichrist will originate in Russia. The idea obviously is derived from a misunderstanding of Ezekiel 38 and 39. Those two chapters indeed reveal that the Antichrist will descend from the north of Israel. So he will come down from Russia. However, neither those chapters […]
