The Rise of Gog?

Dwight Oswald Is Vladimir Putin the "Gog" of Ezekiel 38-39? At this point no one knows, but for years I have been saying he is "Gogesque." However, he may simply be a forerunner to the real "Gog" who will one day follow in his trail. Israel is constantly in the news which fits with Israel being the centerpiece of last day's prophecy. Russia is also consistently in the news. In recent days, two significant events have transpired in regard to Russia. Putin’s [...]

What I Want My Non-believing Friends to Know About Biblical Prophecy

We hold conferences, host debates, read and write books, carry on in endless Facebook threads over the minute details of the end times… hopefully in love, but unfortunately, we get carried away sometimes. Of all that the Bible says about the future, the two things that I most want my unbelieving friends to understand are 1) The Rapture and 2) The Two Witnesses. The Rapture The Rapture will be an event in which everyone who is in [...]

Why Am I A Dispensationalist?

Why am I a Dispensationalist? I grew up in the church, but without much serious biblical influence from its pastors. I was saved and baptized at a young age; however, due to some travail in my middle teenage years, I reached the climax of crisis and finally took my commitment to Christ seriously. Something wonderful and profound took place during those days: I picked up a Bible for myself. The Bible became my addiction, and my soul was captive to its every [...]

A Dispensational Discourse with Cory Marsh

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief Editor’s Note: Providentially, through the process of contributing to the new book called Forged from Reformation, I have become familiar with Cory Marsh, who also contributed to the book and served as its copy editor. My interactions with him led to this interview, for which I am most grateful. Marsh is a young professor, but his thoughts on the subject of dispensationalism are many—and they are profound. I believe that you will enjoy learning about [...]

Three Woes Declared

(Read Part 36) To recap what we saw last time, the Apostle John has already laid out the seven seal judgments and the first four trumpet judgments that will result in the deaths of more than one fourth of the world’s population, under devastating worldwide conditions. The thought that might come to mind at this point is, "How could it get any worse?" Yet, John now reveals that the past judgments pale in severity compared to the judgments he is ready to reveal. [...]

Three Woes Described

(Read Part 35) Review—Introspective Challenge of the Judgment The six seal judgments (see Rev. 6) and the first four trumpet judgments (Rev. 8:1-12) will wreak havoc on the heavens and the earth in the future tribulation period. The Apostle John has yet to reveal the most horrific judgments that God will impose on those refusing to repent of their sin and turn in faith to the Lord Jesus Christ. In this new article and the next, we will examine the three woes pronounced [...]

The Fourth Trumpet Judgment

(Read Part 34) Introduction The old adage, “If I had a nickel for every time I heard someone say that, I would be a rich person,” certainly applies to the many times friends and family members have stated to me that the lack of sunlight for a long stretch of dark and gloomy weather makes them feel lethargic—and even depressed. God reveals in the fourth trumpet judgment that a major change will one day take place with the sun, moon and stars: [...]
