That Meddlesome Millennium

Millennium is a word that has caused more confusion than possibly any other word in the Bible, but it isn’t actually in the Bible. Revelation 20:3 refers to a 1,000-year reign of Christ. The Greek word used for 1,000 is ‘chilia’ but in 405AD Jerome  compiled the Latin Vulgate version of the Bible and

Brexit and the Beast

Just days ago the United Kingdom voted to opt out of the European Union and already people are blogging, tweeting, and writing articles on how Brexit might lead to the ten-headed beast of Revelation… give me a break!

This is vividly presented in Revelation Chapter 13 and the first 13 verses of Chapter 14, but then the scene shifts to two dramatic end-time events, the gathering in of the church and the judgement

Two Beastly for words

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and perhaps that is one of the reasons why John linked the book of Revelation to the star sign pictures in the heavens. For instance, look at this depiction of the constellations of Aries, Taurus, Cetus, and Orion; what a story it tells.

A dragon outmatched by an eagle and a fish
