The Biblical Meaning of “This Generation”

  Hyper-Preterists claim that the New Testament phrase “this generation” always means Christ’s first-century audience.  But does the Bible really support their view?  In this 10-minute Bible study podcast, we give a brief overview of the Scriptural usage of the phrase, and conclude that it is always used in an exclusively Jewish context.  Far from meaning “My…

The Kingdom Was At Hand

 Throughout the years, Bible students have wrestled over statements in the New Testament which represent Christ’s return as being “at hand” in the first century. Liberals and skeptics have claimed that because “Christ never returned when He said He would,” the Bible must be a hoax. During the 1800’s, however, a system of theology named…

Creation And The Fulness of God

Recently, a small sect of liberal scoffers arose to challenge the orthodox interpretation of the Genetic account.

Saints In The Wilderness

Many Christians I’ve spoken to have voiced their opinion that the professing church has lost its power. The fear is well-founded. It seems that wherever we look, godlessness and infidelity are gaining ground, while true Christianity becomes more and more scarce. It’s easy, of course, and ofttimes tempting, to point the finger at some one…

Who Are The “Holy People” Of Daniel 12: 7?

  In the present endtime controversy, there are a large number of views regarding the “Great Tribulation.”  Daniel 12 seems to be a key pivot on which much of the debate (at least insofar as the Old Testament ties in with Matthew 24) seems to turn.  In Daniel 12: 7, Daniel heard the man clothed in…
