In this part of Revelation, we find out the identity of the only one who can make sense of human history. What’s it all about?
Over the last couple of weeks I’ve heard a few times people making the comparison between vaccine passports and the Mark of the Beast. Is it appropriate to draw that comparison? In this video I look at the mark of the beast from the book of Revelation and how it relates to what’s happening with […]
In my previous post I looked at the Biblical principles of safety. In this post we’re going to look at another principle which is very relevant to the current situation: truth. I want to outline a few Biblical principles for truth, and then if there’s space at the end talk a little about how we’re […]
