The Mountains of the Lord feature bold and large in the unfolding saga of God’s dealings with humankind. The first biblical reference to the Mountain of the Lord is in Genesis 22:14, which concludes the dramatic story of Abraham’s sacrifice of his son. At the last moment, God substituted a ram for Isaac and
People who doubt the authenticity of the Old Testament or the divinity of Jesus should listen to this message. The Lord Jesus connects the dots between His life and key Old Testament events. By doing this He is in effect saying, “Yes, it is true, and I AM the one who did it!”
Should we be concerned when Andy Stanley, the leader of the biggest church in the USA, says that it is time for us to ‘unhitch’ from the Old Testament? Is he unhitched from truth, unhinged, or just misunderstood? This TruthTalk seeks to answer these questions and explores the relevance of the Old Testament and

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 natural calamity can be a warning but a supernatural invasion can only be described as a Woe. The First four trumpet blasts of Revelation represent ecological warnings to mankind (discussed in my previous post), but the two that follow are of an entirely different nature and are called ‘woes’. The trumpets
Here is a biblical riddle: “When and why did the Altar of Incense in the Tabernacle move?” The answer will intrigue and encourage you. Revelation Chapter Eight marks the start of Part Three of the book. Each part covers the period between the first and second comings of Christ, but from different
There are some very valuable documents housed in museums and vaults around the world, but none of them compare in importance to the heavenly reality of the one pictured in Revelation. In my last post I covered the disclosure of the throne of God, which John saw in heaven, as the central
