All will give an account

The Bible makes it clear that heaven keeps record books—Revelation 20:12: All the wicked dead will stand before God at the Great White Throne judgment, just before the renovation of earth, and will be judged according to everything that has been written about them in those books. Every word, thought, action, and intention of […]



In Revelation chapter 20, between Satan being locked up in the Abyss for a thousand years (verses 1-3) and afterwards his release, and immediate rebellion, and then his sudden descent into the Lake of Fire, where he will be tormented forever and ever (verses 7-10) is sandwiched the prophecy of the […]

Many people will rebel with Satan

Angel Michael expelling Lucifer from Heaven

That next verse is Revelation 19:20. First, the Antichrist and his false prophet, who will deceive with his false miracles those who receive the mark of the beast, and those who worship that image the false prophet will have made of the beast—Antichrist—will be captured and cast alive […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Jesus Christ does not change

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Any other foundation would have to have its own cornerstone. God’s house has the original, the One and only, Cornerstone—Jesus Christ. And, since God’s house is built on Jesus Christ, and the apostles and prophets, in order for any different cornerstone to pose as the original […]

Jesus Christ is the Cornerstone

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Cornerstone! Familiar with that word? Chief Cornerstone! Sound familiar? It should to Bible students. That term refers only to Jesus Christ. He is the Chief Cornerstone. And just what does that term mean? It refers to the first stone that was placed as the foundation of a […]

God found a few good men to fulfill His plan

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Although there are still other variations of the foregoing idiotic speculations, there is only one plausible view of the subject at hand—Bible Truth about God’s involvement in the world’s affairs—what the Bible actually says about it. Remember, God created man to have dominion over all of the […]

God uses humans to execute his plan

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

We started publishing these weekly articles on Shoalsinsider a little under a year ago, to address this pointed question: “Where is God in all of the turmoil going on in the world?” “Why does God not come down from His throne in heaven, and do something about […]

Religion has cheated us out of our stuff

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

In my lessons both here and elsewhere, I often make the point that religious tradition has robbed much of the church of our rich inheritance in Christ. If we are heirs of Abraham, God and Christ (Romans 8:17; Galatians 3:29; Hebrews 1:2), and according to Scripture […]


Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig


Christians are righteous, pure, holy, light, cleansed, sanctified, etc. because we are not under the Old Testament law, but under grace. Two totally opposite systems. Romans 6:14—Sin will not have dominion over you [Christians]: For [the simple reason that] you are not under the law, […]

Be you holy in all manner of lifestyle

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Scripture says we believers are righteous, pure, holy, light, cleansed, sanctified! The opposite of those godly characteristics describes the devil’s spiritual offspring. 1 John 3:8-9—He who commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sinned from the beginning. For this purpose, the Son of God […]

What is God’s Character?

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

I invite you to think along with me about this righteousness subject. In John 8:44, Jesus said those whose spiritual father is the devil will carry out the will of their father the devil. He is a liar and murderer. And those religious people Christ was addressing […]

In Christ we are the very righteousness of God


Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

We Christians are what God says we are, not what the world or religion says we are. Remember that piling up term I used in the previous article. Of course, the world basically discounts the modern church. But one reason the world does so is that, […]

Preachers and teachers will be held accountable

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

In Ephesians 4:11-16, Paul revealed God’s established ministry system for the entirety of this church dispensation. That New Testament ministry pattern was meant to remain intact until Jesus returns. How do I know that? Well, for one thing, Jesus Christ does not lie, and He does not […]

Every thought, word and action, will be taken into account

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

When we Christian believers stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ to be judged, based upon the way we have lived our lives in this evil age, by what universal standard will Christ judge us to determine our rewards or losses (Romans 14:10-12, 2 Corinthians 5:10-11)? How […]
