The ‘Abyss’—what is it? Where is it? And why are demons terrified of it? Even more, who frees its demons to run amok and who will—and won’t—be tormented by them? Big questions with big answers from Revelation 9.
When Jesus breaks the 7th seal, trumpets begin to blow—and with each blast God’s wrath intensifies. And it’s still just the beginning. It’s coming, and no one can stop it—so what do we do while we wait, and is there an escape-clause?
What about the people who ‘come to Jesus’ when God’s Wrath is unleashed on the world—why are they killed, how do they die, and what becomes of them in heaven? The lessons to us living today are huge…
There’s been plenty of controversy surrounding the 144,000 in Revelation 7—here are a few solid answers (and a provocation or two).
When Jesus breaks the 5th seal, a strange group of people appear under an alter in heaven. Who are they? More than that—who killed them, and what will God to do about it? Amazing revelations of the past, the future and eternity are popping here…
The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse—they’re widely known, but little understood—that is, until we see them through ancient eyes where The Wrath takes on fearsome new dimensions. It’s coming—so what do we do now? Red alert…
It’s a question that’s seldom asked: the Tribulation is coming—but why? Why must there be God’s Wrath—when will it hit, and who must suffer through it? The answers are shattering and glorious—and beyond words… (Revelation 6 supplement)
‘The Great Tribulation’—Daniel’s ’70th Week’—where does it begin, and how? The answer is in Revelation 5, and it’s shockingly simple…
The ‘Four Living Creatures’ around God’s throne—what are they? Even more—what do they have to say to us today? One thing is sure—it’s bigger than anyone could imagine… (Rev. 4:6-11)
The End of the World launches at the Throne of God, and those mysterious twenty-four ‘Elders’ have everything to do with it. Who are they? Why are they there? More than that—what does any of this have to do with the Lord’s Prayer? Much indeed…! (Rev. 4:3-6a)
The End of the World will begin at the Throne of God, and Jesus showed John what must happen—but he saw more than he could possibly imagine. Us, too—but Jesus dares us to try… (Revelation 4:1-3)
Roe v. Wade has been overturned—what’s next for the church—for America—for the world…? A short provocation for an age of rage… (14:00)
Jesus called the Laodicean church “lukewarm” —and it doesn’t mean what you think. Even so, He also loved them—a lot. Here’s the story…
The Church at Philadelphia was under attack for reasons they didn’t fully understand. But Jesus knew, and His solution to their distress was more powerful than anyone imagined…
Prosperous, secure, entitled, mediocre, dead. The church at Sardis was all of that—and though they were the ‘body of Christ’, Jesus told them they were no better than a corpse. I wonder what He would say to the churches today…? Fasten your seat belts…
The Church at Thyatira ‘tolerated’ a prophetess who fostered idolatry among them—after all, how could Jesus have a problem with that—it’s such a small thing and it makes the people happy. The church, however, belonged to Jesus, and He had other ideas about such things—things that sound painfully like an ultimatum to the church today. (Rev. 2:18-29)
The Church in Pergamum was exceptionally faithful to Jesus, but they were also corrupt due to some really bad ideas. Jesus was faithful to them, too—and He rebuked them in order to bless them—along with the rest of the world…
Jesus told the Church in Smyrna they would suffer, be slandered and dragged to the brink of death—and that He would be with them the whole time. After all, He’d already been down that road before. A great message for those questioning if standing for Jesus is really worth it…
According to Jesus Himself, there is a single qualification to be one of His churches—and considering Who set this standard and from where He said it, every church should stand and listen—or tremble… [Rev. 1:12-2:7]
In the history of the world, only a single individual ever died and came back to life never to die again—a man who beat the menacing fate afflicting all people everywhere—death—just one man who became everything the world ever needed to bring genuine hope for life. And we get to be just like Him forever—but what will that be like? Here’s one of the most mind-blowing messages you may ever hear… [Rev. 1:9-18]
“Good Friday” is a strange name for the day Jesus died—it was so much more than words could ever tell. So God showed us…
John, Revelation’s scribe, was overwhelmed the moment he began to write it down—and his amazement is highly contagious. A Palm Sunday message from the pages of Revelation. The blessings just keep coming… (Rev. 1:5-8)
Gamala—an ancient Jewish town in the Golan Heights—was destroyed by the Romans and abandoned—but I discovered the ruined synagogue still had some stories to tell…
Who can understand Revelation? The answer will surprise you—because you’re part of it. Even more amazing are the blessings that come to those who read it and do what it says— and it’s not even difficult. Grace and peace to you…
What is Revelation all about? Here’s the whole Book—from first to last—in a single message—a great signpost warning us of the approaching wrath of God and the return of the King. Fasten your seatbelts…
The final words of Daniel’s prophetic book tell us much and—like Daniel—leaves us wanting more. His finale is truly as grand as it is intimate, revealing and glorious. Next up—Revelation…
God gave Daniel vast visions of the future, but He didn’t show him everything—and Daniel desperately wanted to know. What was God hiding—and why? The answer is huge, and we need it today. (Daniel 12:7-8)
What do Daniel’s prophecies reveal? Like us, he really wanted to know—but God told him more than enough. But questions linger for us as with Daniel—what does God want us to do with the astonishing things that He’s revealed? And what about the prophecies He ‘sealed’? Part 1 of a very exciting and much needed study. (Daniel 12:4-7)
Who are ‘the wise’ in God’s estimation? What does it mean to ‘shine like the stars’ in a dark world—and what does that look like when it happens? An important message for people living in the Last Days (that would be you…) (Daniel 12:3-4)
In one little verse Daniel summarizes the fate of the world, the origin of the Rapture and the whole reason Believers believe. Sadly, this greatest end-times event is often preached in whispers and received with rolled eyes, even though it’s the shining jewell of the salvation message. Don’t miss this one—you’ll be blessed—and moved.
PART 2 of a hard-hitting study on End-Times Prophecy’s most neglected warning. For the not-easily offended…
When it comes to Jesus’ return, God gave us many warning signs and two resolute orders. We like the signs—but, oh, those commands—our marching orders from Jesus Himself, as Biblical prophecy unfolds before our very eyes. Here we go…
For us, Christmas comes once a year—for Mary and Joseph, it came only once, followed by a rollercoaster-life from amazement to alarm and back. For us, that’s just life, but when things get rough after God promises blessings, what then? It’s the day after Christmas… (Luke 2:21-52)
Christmas is a delightful holiday—but to Mary and Joseph, obeying God would invite danger and horrendous shame before their much celebrated honor. This is the side of the Christmas story that makes all the difference in the world…
Think Christmas is a nice holiday? Your wildest imagination can’t absorb the reality. A provocative and mind-blowing Christmas message. (Hebrews 1:1-4; John 1:1-14)
The Great Tribulation is coming—but why? Is it because God is a mean, angry God, or does humanity actually deserve it? The answer is clear—and it’s shockingly wonderful. (Daniel 12:1-3, PART 2)
The Great Tribulation is coming—the most terrible days the world will ever endure are on the way. But why? And what about those destined to endure the horrors—some of them God’s very own people? What is God thinking? So glad He told Daniel…!
A powerful study of Daniel’s prophecy of the Great Tribulation at the world’s end. But why did God reveal this to humanity? For us to be informed? Or is it for a much greater purpose? (Daniel 11, PART 4)
God gave Daniel a glimpse of the “times of the end”, to be passed along to the Jewish people, and eventually to us. It’s among the most vivid and frightening pictures of the coming antichrist’s devastating impact on our future world—with the price of nonchalance too terrible ignore. (Daniel 11, PART 3)
Of the 135 prophesies in Daniel 11, most were precisely fulfilled over 2100 years ago. But a few remain—by far the most chilling—reserved for the end of history as we know it. Why did God revealed these events? The answer is electrifying—and a blessing. (Part 2)
God revealed a 135 precise predictions to Daniel that came to pass over 2000 years ago—still, hundreds of years after Daniel’s lifetime. Certainly among the most spectacular prophecies in the Bible—and the most telling. Why God revealed these events is even more interesting—and inspiring. (Part 1)
What’s happening in America—in the world for that matter— is far more than a culture war—it’s the symptom of a dangerous conflict between holy angels and the demons of hell fought in another dimension of reality—happening now—happening all around us. The question is, what can be done about it? This message is riveting study that unmasks perhaps the church’s greatest strength—and weakness.
Who was “The Man” who visited Daniel after being detained by “The Prince of Persia” for three weeks? How could the devil restrain such an overwhelming, formidable being so that they even required an archangel’s help to escape? The answers will surprise you—and might even change your relationship with God Himself…
(Correction: Jay’s reference to “Matthew 7” should be “Matthew 17”)
Prophecy Update: In Bible prophecy, numbers are language—God uses them to simplify what He wants us to “know and understand”. So—what about those “70 weeks” that Gabriel told Daniel? Simple, terrifying, glorious. Much more than about the “70 weeks”—this update might leave you breathless…!
Special Audio Supplement (below): Daniel prophesied that in the Last Days the Jewish Temple would be rebuilt—but where? The Jews are intent on putting it back on the Temple Mount—which could cause another world war. Today, however, many Christians say that history got it wrong—that the original site was elsewhere and the Temple Mount was actually the Roman Antonia Fortress. Here are my thoughts on the controversy (read from Pastor Jay’s essay, The Controversy of the Jewish Temple Location, which you can also read HERE).
What were those mysterious ‘sevens’ spoken of by the angel Gabriel to Daniel? In fact, they’re not difficult at all—and they reveal wonders, both tremendous and terrifying. And they weren’t only for Daniel or the Jewish people, but a warning for everyone at the world’s end…
The angel Gabriel interrupted Daniel while he was praying and told him things both grim and glorious. Gabriel began with the glory—revealing not only what the end of the world would be like, but what follows—and even what happens after after that. Glorious, simply glorious…
Israel’s Exile to Babylon was ending, but many of the people were still ignoring God. When Daniel intervened and prayed on their behalf, it was a game-changer for Israel, for Daniel and for all people everywhere. That means you, too—listen carefully…

(PART 2) Before Jesus returns, the Bible says the Antichrist will ravage the world. But the Bible also tells us what he’s like in specific terms—that he’s a master deceiver and that God doesn’t want the world—or the Jewish people—to confuse this ‘Beast’ with His Son. And Daniel’s visions are the key… (Includes Afghanistan-in-Prophecy update)
