I have some good news and bad news. NASA has predicted that the Andromeda Galaxy, which is hurtling towards us at 250,000 miles an hour, will collide with our Milky Way galaxy, scattering stars, including our sun, in all directions. The good news is that it won’t happen for about 4 billion years. Even so, it will probably give the end-of-the-world doomsayers something else to worry us with.

How to Interpret Prophecy

There are many difficulties involved in interpreting prophecy, but if we take the Bible seriously, we need to study prophecy, because prophecy is a large part of the literature God has inspired to be written and preserved in the Christian canon. Since prophecy encourages us to know God and do his will, it is important for us to study it, even if it is difficult.

One Pilgrim's Progress: Bible Prophecy: What's It All About?

Nothing sells like prophecy. It’s true. A church or ministry can have goofy theology, an oddball leader and ridiculously strict rules and regulations, but if they have a few world maps, a pair of scissors and a stack of newspapers, along with an even half articulate preacher, it seems, people will send them money by the bucket-loads.

Anglo-Israelism and the United States & Britain in Prophecy

The United States and Britain in Prophecy was a book published for several decades, and several million copies were given away, and many readers accepted its conclusion — that the northern ten tribes of Israel eventually migrated to northwestern Europe, that the Anglo-Saxon peoples are descendants of the Israelites, and that we should look for biblical prophecies to be fulfilled among these peoples.

Here He Comes, Ready or Not

Don’t you wish that Jesus would return? That all the wretchedness and wickedness that we see around us would end, and that God would usher in a time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea” (Isaiah 11:9)?

No One Knows When Christ Will Return

The Bible nowhere tells us, directly or indirectly, when Jesus Christ will return. When Jesus returns is not as important as whether we are ready when he does. Yet people for nearly 2,000 years have constructed elaborate prophetic outlines that can distract people away from the gospel and crush believers’ faith.

What do you think would be the biggest event that could occur on the world scene? Another world war? The discovery of a cure for some dread disease? World peace, once and for all? Contact with some extraterrestrial intelligence?
