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 part […]

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 covenant? […]

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 build […]

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] (1 […]

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 Lot, […]

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 those […]

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 many.” […]

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 […]

There’s a lot of speculation on end time events

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Before getting deeper into the end-time-events subject, I want to make a few comments and ask a few questions. I have learned that different people have different motivations for their interest in end-time events. Although many are sincere, some are obviously motivated by mere curiosity. While curiosity […]

The Book of Daniel is concerned with world events

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

The book of Daniel is expanded in the book of Revelation. Revelation cannot be understood without a working knowledge of Daniel’s original revelation, and Daniel is incomplete without the apostle John’s completion of that vision in the book of Revelation. Moreover, both books must be taken together as […]

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 […]

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 […]

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] […]
