Psalms of Repentance

Hosea 8 God commands to blast a warning like a trumpet, calling people to sincerely repent; the enemy is at the gates the correction of the LORD is at hand!  Because of our sins of idolatry, Sabbath breaking and rejecting godly knowledge  and our spiritual adultery; our correction is at hand!

Hosea 1 – 7

Introduction Generally, the biblical prophetic books are divided between the longer books called the Major Prophets [Isaiah – Jeremiah – Lamentations- Ezekiel and  Daniel], and the shorter books arecalled the Minor Prophets.  This is a study into the twelve minor prophets:  Hosea – Joel – Amos – Obadiah – Jonah – Micah – Nahum – Habakkuk- […]

Daniel: Part 2

Daniel 6 After taking over Babylon the Medo-Persian empire replaced the Chaldeans and continued the same Babylonian religious political system.  Then king Darius the Mede organized his kingdom into 120 provinces and made Daniel his prime minister. Daniel 6:1 It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the […]

Daniel Part 1

  Daniel Introduction: The people who organized the book of Daniel have placed the various prophecies in the wrong order.  Daniel himself tells us this when he dates his prophecies by the reigns of various kings.  For example, we know that Belshazzar was the son [descendant] of Nebuchadnezzar, actually his grandson; and we know that Darius […]

Revelation 1 – 11

 Revelation 1 The book of Revelation is a direct revealing by Jesus Christ to John, and through John to the faithful disciples of Christ.  The Book is about events FUTURE from the time of John.  The context of Revelation strongly indicates that it is a revealing of end time events, and since ALL scripture is for the […]

Ezekiel 45-48: The Millennial Temple

Introduction:  Ezekiel 40-48, Ezra, Nehemiah and certain other scriptures like Numbers are largely neglected in preaching and studies.  This neglect especially of Ezekiel 40-48 is hard to explain since many are big on talking about the millennium and Ezekiel 40-48 contains key prophecies and descriptions of the millennium.  In fact they claim to be preparing the brethren […]

Ezekiel 25-39

Ezekiel 25 While this prophecy is about Jordan, Turkey and the Philistines of Gaza; it is very powerful in absolutely refuting the false traditions and false teachings of certain modern false prophets. The prophecy is about Nebuchadnezzar coming through that land as a fore type that in the latter day the nations of Asia will sweep through […]

Ezekiel 16-24

Introduction:  God called physical Israel out of physical Egypt as a type of calling a kind of spiritual Israel out of bondage to sin.

Ezekiel 1-15

Introduction At the end of the year [c 598 B.C.] in the new year near Passover, Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon removed Jehioakin from the throne of Judah and replaced him with Zedekiah his brother.  This event indicates that Babylon had replaced Egypt as the regional power.   Ezekiel was taken to Babylon at the removal […]

Nehemiah

Updated Dec 2015 Nehemiah 1 Ezra had gone to restore the religion and build the city at the command of Artaxerxes longimanus in 457 B.C.  Ezra had logically placed his first priority as restoring the true worship of YHVH and building the city had been largely neglected.  In 444 B.C. the twentieth year of Artaxerxes […]

Ezra

Updated Dec, 2015 Ezra Introduction The Book of Ezra was originally combined with the Book of Nehemiah in a single book of Ezra / Nehemiah.  The two books became separated in the early centuries of the Christian era. In the restoration from the Babylonian captivity, three successive leaderships carried out three different missions; The First Part: recorded […]

2 Chronicles 19-36

2 Chronicles 19 Jehoshaphat the king of Judah having escaped from the Syrians was confronted by Jehu the prophet of God and warned against helping the wicked.   Brethren, consider this matter very carefully: Should we help those who teach idolatry of men and exalt men above the Word of God, cleaving to past error rejecting […]
