Are We In The End Times? Markers and Signs, pt 3

May 29th, 2020

God IS going to establish His Kingdom on earth. How do we know that? The Lord clearly revealed it to Daniel in a couple of revelations over his lifetime. He revealed to Daniel a succession of human kingdoms on earth, three of which are easily identified and a 4th whose identity is in dispute. These kingdoms HAVE come to pass and one of them is going to reappear in the End Times to create havoc on earth. These four kingdoms are big "markers" along the path of God's prophetic revelation. But there are other significant markers, one of which is revealed in this episode - the Tamid or Daily sacrifice. Jay the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry take a dive into Daniel's 7th and 8th chapter to look at God's unfolding End Times revelation. Are you ready to dive deeper?

May 22nd, 2020

Jay the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry continue their Friday Bible study on the question, "Are We In The End Times?" Jay and Larry begin their identification of God's End Time "markers" with the Book of Daniel.

Are We In The End Times? Markers and Signs, pt 1

May 15th, 2020

What with worldwide pestilences, wars, saber-rattling between China and the U.S., food shortages, and the very real risk of global famine...why you'd think it was TEOTWAWKI (The End Of The World As We Know It)! Many people think so and they may be right. BUT, signs are not what we should be looking for. We should be looking for SPECIFIC MARKERS. Daniel gave us specific markers to clearly indicate the time of the End and Jesus affirmed them. Jay the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry go through the sure markers and the signs that surround them. This 3-part discussion will blow you away!

When God Draws His Sword on You (Joshua 5:13-6:5)

May 8th, 2020

You know about Joshua and Jericho, right? Well, here's a fascinating take on what leads up to the Jericho conquest. Joshua is on a reconnaissance mission in the middle of the night. And SUDDENLY a figure looms out of the darkness with a drawn sword! What does this mean? Why would this figure have a sword pointed at Joshua? Perhaps it was to make sure Joshua knew who was in charge? Knowing God as Commander-in-Chief is crucial for us to interact with Him, know what he wants us to do, and how to do it. It also has a profound application for person-to-person relationships among Yeshua's people, especially in times of conflict.

Sorry, Jesus Ain’t A Gentile!

May 1st, 2020

Jesus had long blond hair and blue eyes, right? You know, like in all the Euro-centric pictures and movies. Wrong! Jesus (Yeshua) was thoroughly Jewish. And without understanding Jesus' Jewish context there is SO MUCH we 21st c. Jesus-followers miss. Regardless of our ethnicity or race, we're not allowed to make Jesus in our image. We MUST start with a 1st c. Jewish frame of reference to get a more accurate picture of His life, ministry, and message.

PEOPLE RUN WILD! (A Talk About A Misunderstood Verse)

April 24th, 2020

Proverbs 29:18 is one of the most misinterpreted, misunderstood, and misapplied scriptures even though many Christians know it by heart. They focus on "Without revelation, people run wild," but ignore the 2nd half of the verse, "but one who follows divine instruction will be happy." This verse has been memorized by many as "Without a vision, the people perish" and they use it as a justification to spend a lot of time, energy, and talent wrestling with church "vision-casting" and mission statements. While these things are good things, they have a faint secondary application to this verse. The truth of the verse just might step on your toes. You are forewarned!

Encouragement!

April 17th, 2020

What is encouragement? I'll tell ya what it is!  It's GREAT! Everyone needs it and no one gets enough. Believe it or not, encouragement is actually a powerful ministry of the Body of Christ. The Holy Spirit is known as the Encourager. There is the ministry gift of encouragement (Romans 12:8, "exhorting"). And there's just regular encouragement. Take a listen and be encouraged, yes!
