The opening words of Psalm 2 pose a question that has baffled mankind through the centuries. The Psalmist asks, "Why do the nations rage?" That is, why is it so difficult to bring about international peace? Why, after thousands of peace conferences, security accords, and negotiations held through the…

She was encircled by a double layer of defenses: each layer consisting of an outer wall, an inner wall, and a canal or river. Between the inner and outer defenses was irrigated land with…
Rejoicing Through Revelation
Separation is FROM the world, UNTO God; to stay in Babylon is to both FORFEIT God's blessings and FACE the loss of its ultimate destruction; God's Word invites you today: "Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."

What comes to your mind when you think "Epic story?" Or what is the ultimate story of good triumphing over evil? What is the most horrifying story you have ever encountered? Revelation 14:1-20 must rank at the very top of the list regarding all these story lines. But Revelation 14 is more than just an epic story. This is what I call "pre history", for every syllable, every line, is absolute truth. The Lord gave John several visions which doubtless rocked him to the core.

What did God want humanity to do? Represent him well in every corner of the planet. God said, "Go!" and the people said "No!" They stayed together and built a tower that reached to heaven. We know this as the Tower of Babel. God, as the hero of this story, puts his grace, love and mercy on display. Great is his faithfulness to do what he promised! He said he would send the redeemer, and introduced the one through whom he would keep that promise. His name? Abram. Join the Grace United crew as we hear again, for the first time, the story of the Tower of Babel, and all the begats of Genesis 10 and 11.
The Revelation of Jesus Christ

Throughout the book of Revelation the Lord brings judgment on the world. God is holy. God is full of wrath. God will punish wickedness wherever He finds it. Not a pleasant thought. Or is it? Imagine a world where everything is clean. Everybody plays well with others. King Jesus is on the throne. That day is coming. But He must clean up our mess--called sin--first. How does He do that? How can we respond to the judgment and wrath of God? Join the Grace United crew as we explore God's grand and glorious judgment upon the Great Prostitute.

Bible scholars talk about "400 Silent Years." Does this mean anything to you? It ought to if you want to know how God prepared Israel to receive her King. We are talking about the time between the "close" of the Old Testament and the "opening" of the New Testament. The "silent years" were anything but silent. Join the Grace United crew as we take a fascinating look at these years and how God wove a cultural tapestry of literature, religion and politics to create hope in his people, setting the stage for the birth of the Messiah.

Introduction It did not take fallen man long to revert to type. The flood came because man had forgotten God. They built cities for themselves and became mighty in the earth. The flood had cleansed this world, but the seeds of sin and rebellion made it onto the ark. Some have speculated why God saved…

Habakkuk. God's ways are not our ways: Habakkuk had a problem: how could יהוה allow evil to continue? [OHP] Then יהוה gave His answer: He would judge evil using the Babylonians. Habakkuk cried to יהוה, and יהוה answered. It is wonderful that God hears and answers, He responds to our cry. But when He…
