God’s North

Polaris, the North Star

Those who may be football enthusiasts will probably recall a famous Minnesota Viking whose name was Jim Marshall. While famous for many feats, his most memorable feat was accomplished in 1964 when he ran for a 66 yard safety, the wrong way! In life, we need to make sure that we are running in the right direction. Fortunately, God has given us His Word to enable us to have the right judgment and guidance in which to follow Him.

The God of the Old Testament

...God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. - Exodus 3:4

To many, the God of the Old Testament appears to be vengeful and cruel. This has been the accusation of the atheist and agnostic. Even many Christians can’t seem to reconcile the goodness of God (which they have experienced in their hearts) to that which they have read in the Old Testament passages. For example, Joshua was instructed to kill all the inhabitants of the land of Canaan. Was this really necessary? Does this seem just? To answer these questions, … Continue reading →

To God be the Glory

They hear a Voice from Heaven

Approximately three months after Jesus had raised Lazarus from the dead, Jesus and the disciples went to Bethany, the home of Lazarus, Martha, and Mary. This was the beginning of the Passion Week, the last week of Jesus’ life leading up to the crucifixion. As the news spread of Jesus’ arrival, many people converged upon Bethany hoping to see Lazarus, the one who had been dead for four days, but now was alive. Others came also, the chief priests and … Continue reading →

The Battle of Gog and Magog

And Esther said, The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman. Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen. Esther 7:6

Most “prophecy teachers” today place the battle of Gog and Magog just before, or at the very beginning, of the Tribulation Period. Others, however, have the battle of Armageddon first and the battle of Gog and Magog as the final conflict. Of course, being the contrarian that I am, I view and interpret this battle completely opposite from the popular consensus. I am a firm believer in interpreting Scripture in its appropriate context. In this scenario, the proper context is … Continue reading →

The Author of Hebrews

Bible writer

By Jim Gibson The book of Hebrews has language that seems to be very “Pauline.” Because of this, I once believed that the apostle Paul must have been the author of this important New Testament document. I’ve since changed my opinion on this based on the following verses: “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him. God … Continue reading →

God’s Rainbow

A circle rainbow

by Jim Gibson In the third chapter of Genesis, we read how that mankind had sinned against their Creator. Was this a surprise to God? Of course not. God knew before the beginning of His creation that man would fall from his state of innocence. However, God had a plan of redemption for mankind. In Revelation 13:8, we see that God had a Lamb that was “slain from the foundation of the world.” We find this promise of redemption made … Continue reading →

Understanding The Book of Revelation

The Book of Revelation

Comments from the webmaster: In my opinion this is one of the most insightful commentaries of the Book of Revelation I have ever read! There may be points that the reader will find disagreement with, but considering all the other numerous interpretations of the Book of Revelation that I have read, I hope you will nevertheless find Jim Gibson’s insights interesting and food for thought. In the light of history, they all sound to be reasonable interpretations to me. Introduction … Continue reading →

The Jerusalem Story

By Jim Gibson. “Go west, young man, go west” was the popularized clarion call in the mid to late 1800s as America continued her westward expansion in fulfilling her manifest destiny. In approximately 1980 B.C., the great patriarch Abraham (Abram) received a similar commission from God to leave his native home of Ur to go west to the land of Canaan. In Genesis 12:1, God told Abraham that he was to go to “a land that I will shew thee.” … Continue reading →

When Jesus Returns —what then?

The second coming of Christ

by Jim Gibson The second coming of Jesus has fascinated and inspired Christians for almost two thousand years. That great Apostle to the Gentiles, Paul, referred to this momentous event as the “blessed hope” in Titus 2:13. After showing himself to his disciples for forty days after his resurrection, Jesus gathered them together at a familiar place close to Jerusalem called Olivet. The last time they had met together on this mount was on that fateful night of Jesus’ betrayal … Continue reading →

What John Nelson Darby Taught About Daniel 9 vs. Prominent Bible Commentators

John Nelson Darby.

John Nelson Darby (18 November 1800 – 29 April 1882) was an Anglo-Irish Bible teacher, one of the influential figures among the original Plymouth Brethren and the founder of the Exclusive Brethren. He is considered to be the father of modern Dispensationalism and Futurism (“the Rapture” in the English vernacular). (Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Nelson_Darby) The correct interpretation of Daniel chapter 9 and especially verse 27 is extremely important because it is the ‘linchpin’ of all Bible prophecy and determines whether you have … Continue reading →

The 70th Week of Daniel Delusion

70-weeks-copy

It was on December 13th, 2014, after 40 some years of study of eschatology, that I finally realized the 70th Week of Daniel is not part of the Endtime scenario! I am talking about Daniel 9:24-27 and especially the interpretation of verse 27. Daniel 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, … Continue reading →

CASSELS It was published in 1846. The author, Samuel J. Cassels, was a Presbyterian minister. All true Christians already know that Jesus is Nazareth is the Messiah or they wouldn’t be Christians.

A New Viewpoint of the Clay and Iron of Daniel Chapter 2

Daniel Ch.-2 Four Kingdoms Ten Toes

Daniel chapter 2 is an amazing prophecy of the history of the world from the time of Daniel and the kingdom of Babylon to this present day. King Nebuchadnezzar has a dream which he cannot interpret and cannot even remember, but God shows both the dream and the interpretation to his servant Daniel! In the dream King Nebuchadnezzar sees an image, a statue of a man with a head of gold, chest and arms of silver, belly of brass, legs … Continue reading →

Seven Events Evangelicals Think Will Happen But Won’t

Endtime delusions

My friend Luke shared the below with me. If you study Eschatology from the Bible, you should know that the following doctrines most evangelicals hold to be true are based on a false interpretation of Daniel 9:27, namely, the Antichrist will make a treaty with the Jews and Israel for a 7 year period during which he will allow the Jews to rebuild the temple of Solomon. Please know that this doctrine was created by a Jesuit priest circa 1585, … Continue reading →

Genesis Chapter One Indicates a Spherical Rotating Earth

Stationary GPS satellite over the rotating earth

On March 15th I hitchhiked to the Tokyo area from my home in Niigata City in 4 cars. When sitting in the back seat of one of the cars, the front seat passenger was having a long conversation with the driver. This meant I didn’t have to engage in conversation with them and gave me an opportunity to redeem the time and type a message on my Tablet PC. I wanted to reply to a man named Sam who was … Continue reading →

15 Reasons to Take Genesis as History

flatearthdebunked

The book of Genesis is one of the most attacked books in the Bible. Is it important to accept it as true history? The book of Genesis is the first of 5 books written and compiled by Moses and Jesus said if we don’t believe what Moses wrote, we cannot believe His words either. John 5:46  For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. 47  But if ye believe not his writings, how … Continue reading →

Preterism, Futurism, Historicism – 3 Schools of Interpretation of Bible Prophecy

Henry Grattan Guinness - (11 August 1835 – 21 June 1910), an Irish Protestant Christian preacher, evangelist and author.

I consider this article a key resource to understand why and how eschatology as understood by the evangelical world today is all messed up! If you are waiting for the “rise of the Antichrist” I highly urge you to read this! It is not long. I copied it from a 10 page PDF file somebody either sent me or I found on the Internet. It quotes a lot from an author who I highly regard, Henry Grattan Guiness, who wrote … Continue reading →

Dispensationalism and its influence on Eschatology

dispensationalism

My new friends from 2014 have often used theological term “dispensationalism” in their conversations with me but until recently the meaning of this word has been nebulous in my mind. I think it most Christians today don’t know what it means either even though they believe the doctrines that sprang from it. Below is text edited from http://regal-network.com/dispensationalism/ Dispensationalism is a method of Bible interpretation which was first devised by John Nelson Darby (1800-1882), and later formulated by the controversial … Continue reading →

Daniel 11:36-39 – A Prophecy of the Pope of Rome!

The Catholic Eucharist the god whom his fathers knew not.

The following is from a Jesuit suppressed book, The Two Babylons by Alexamder Hislop. You may not agree with his assertions, but I’ll tell you, what he has to say sure makes a lot of sense to me! Why? Because it explains clearly why all sorts of pagan groups, witches, Illuminati, Rosicrucians, high level Freemasons, etc. are willing to work with the Pope! All these pagan groups deem Christians to be their enemy, and they KNOW the papacy and its … Continue reading →
