Introduction: Years ago I was visiting a family on the night they had lost a dearly loved relative. Of course, in those moments, there’s not much to say. You just pray and stay close. In this instance the family began saying things to each other in order to encourage themselves. One comment I’ll never forgetContinue reading “End Times Basics Lesson 2: The Resurrection”
Why End-Times?There are often things that happen in our lives, or culture that increase our interest in God’s plans for the future – so I think there’s an understandable interest in the future when the present seems so crazy and uncertain.

For some reason I was reflecting the other day on what subjects have most often landed me in the hottest of water among professing Christians.
