Labor Pains (Part 2) — Or Where Does Coronavirus Fit in Prophecy?

As you will hear in this PODCAST, we are still under lockdown. So here’s the plan: For this week, Part 2 of our Signs of the Times series that we began last week. My goal is to put today’s troubling headlines into the broad context of biblical prophecy in order to underscore the fact that Jesus knew all about COVID-19 long before we ever heard about it. No need to panic. No need for fear. He’s got this. Not only does He “got” this, but it’s all a part of His prophetic plan as it unfolds in real time right before our wondering eyes.

Next week, it’ll be back to Paul in HD as I record a brand new podcast in the cozy confines of my office.

How Shall We Now Live?

May I make a prediction?

My prediction is this: As you listen to the PODCAST, you will be awash in waves of encouragement.

As you’ll hear, it was a crazy night to be sure. Here we sat in the midst of a citywide blackout. Yet, Peter’s message of hope and healing shined through bright and beautiful.

Is Today the Day?

I mentioned it only briefly, in passing really, last week.

Time to talk about it in earnest this week.

As you will hear in this PODCAST, THIS is our hope.

A bright and beautiful hope indeed!

BTW, the cheering you will hear in the background are the precious high school students whom I met at Hartland Christian Camp in July. A better group of students you will not find. Anywhere.

May it be a blessing, to you as it was to them. Enjoy.

The Salvation-Song of Simeon

He is the unsung hero of the Christmas story.

In a classic case of gross understatement, may I say that Simeon was a most-remarkable individual. In this PODCAST, you will hear his inspiring story in his own voice.

A truly unforgettable Christmas meditation—one that not only looks back to the way things were, but forward to your bright and beautiful future as things soon will be!

A Lamp Shining in a Dark Place

As you are about to hear in this PODCAST, it is one of the most, if not the-most-blessed, doctrines in all of the Bible.

So naturally, theologians have to come along and muddy it all up to the point where today it is MUBAR:

Messed Up Beyond All Recognition.

I’m talking about the blessed doctrine of—fancy name—imminence. As in the imminent return of Jesus. As in the clear and (as you will hear in mere moments) unambiguous Bible teaching that Jesus could return at any time. As in the glorious truth that nothing needs to happen to precede Jesus’ return.

The “blessed hope” for which we do hope, every single day.

“Weight-ing” on the Lord

As you are about to hear in this PODCAST, the time has come for us to have a sensible discussion about an issue that has been grossly misunderstood, and consequently grievously mis-taught, in far too many Christian settings. All of this causing so much harm spiritually, mentally, and emotionally to so many.

Jesus said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Oh, my dear friends, get ready to be set free!

The Sheep and the Goats

Let me tell you! If you want to see in crystal-clarity the character and the heart of God, this is it. Right here, right now, in real time, in this PODCAST.

This in a breathtaking public display for all the world to see, at which the whole world will marvel. The broken heart of our God whom Peter described as “not wanting anyone to be destroyed (a word that means to destroy fully, to bring to nothing) but (who) wants everyone to repent.”

This portrait of our God — Who persistently pursues everyone in every way, making every effort to bring every sinner to repentance — comes at very end of Olivet Discourse in Matthew 25.

Here we will see, in this parable of the end of the age, the eternal separation of committed Christ-followers from those who defiantly and unrepentantly want nothing to do with Jesus. Plus, we will see their ultimate eternal destiny in what Jesus called “the eternal fire prepared for devil and his demons.”

An unpleasant topic, to be sure. But a #Most.Important.One, because we are talking about the eternal destinies of multiplied millions of people.

Specifically, what did Jesus mean by eternal fire? For whom is it intended? What happens to those goats (in contrast to His sheep) who are sadly, tragically, yet-justly cast into the eternal fire?

And of course, at the heart of this entire discussion sits this all-important and all too-common question: Does the loving God of the Bible — who defines Himself as not wanting anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent — really send people to Hell?

Allow me to set up this discussion in this way: I find it most-intriguing, and most-ironic in a most-purposeful sort of way that Jesus’ Hebrew name Yeshua, means “God Saves.” That’s right out of first chapter of the New Testament (Matthew 1:21): “Mary will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Yeshua, for He will save His people from their sins.”

Now watch this. Only God could create this wonder of the words. This, as you are about to hear, is not coincidental.
