A Chronology Of End Times Events

Jack Kelley 90x115 This Week’s Feature Article by Jack Kelley

More and more as we get closer to the end, people want to see a time line of coming events. Questions about the order in which events will take place, the span of time between them and the likelihood of there being enough time for everything to happen in the time we have left are becoming more numerous with each passing week.

As you know the Bible doesn’t provide this level of specificity.  But neither are we left to make unfounded predictions. There are a number of clues scattered throughout the New Testament that take much of the guess work out of things. With diligent study, we can put them together and make some pretty reasonable assumptions.


Works of the Flesh and the Fruit of the Spirit Part 1

Justin Edwards 90x115 by Justin Edwards

One of the evidences Christians have in their tool box for assurance of salvation is whether the fruit of the Spirit is manifest in them. This fruit includes 9 characteristics: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Contrarily, the works of the flesh are evident in the unregenerate, unsaved person, which are: sexual immorality, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, contentions, drunkenness, and revelries. When we walk in the Spirit as Paul tells us in Galatians 5, we will not satisfy the lust of the sinful nature.
