You Know You’re A Christian When …

It appears that many folks who consider themselves Christians do so based on the common modern day interpretation of what constitutes Christianity. You may be a classic seasonal Christian who dutifully buys Christmas presents, and celebrates Easter with colorful eggs, jelly beans and chocolate bunnies. Or maybe you are a casual Christian, you go to church services on a Sunday now and then. If you’re a practicing Catholic, then you go to confession every now and then too, but at Easter for sure. Or perhaps you think of yourself in a general sense of Christianity, a decent person, a gentile that Christ came to save rather than the Jews, who are those “Old Testament” people. If asked about it, you’d be sure that the wise men brought their gifts to baby Jesus in a manger in Bethlehem, which is why we exchange gifts on his birthday, December 25th. This is common Christianity as practiced in the 21st century, is it not? Yes, it is. But, is this the Christianity of the Biblical record delivered to us by Christ and the apostles in the first century? No, it is not.

The Great Rebellion, The Curious Elephant

We've lost our spiritual purity. And it is clear in the prophecies. In Isaiah 63 we read that Christ will turn to be our enemy in the end-times because we, the House of Israel, "have rebelled and vexed his Holy Spirit." But we don't take note of these warning prophecies because we don't know our Biblical identity. And refusing to acknowledge our true Biblical identity means we can never heed the warning in the prophecies meant for us. It's a lethal Catch-22.

On What Ground Are We Sowing?

The rising autumn heralds yet another evanescent summer. Millions will witness creation’s rite of passage as the green leaves of summer fire into bright harvest reds, oranges and yellows before gravity tugs them gently to the ground, painting country lanes with their artistic hues. This marks the time of the fall harvest, a bigger harvest compared to the first fruits harvest of the summer. When a farmer has tilled good ground, and sown his heirloom seed wisely, he reaps the fruit of a bountiful harvest. The seven-day feast of Tabernacles1 marked the time for the children of Israel to rejoice in their fall harvest blessing by our LORD God. This feast has tremendous theological relevance for the House of Israel today for it represents the Millennium, the thousand years of peace after the return of Christ, culminating in the great resurrection.
