The world as we know it is coming to an end.
Last week I spoke at Cannon Beach Conference Center in Cannon Beach, Oregon. On Friday morning we had a question and answer session based on questions we had received from the audience. During the Q&A time Timothy Greenidge served as moderator. This turned out to be one of the best sessions of the week. Over the next several days I will...
This little boy represents the future of the Chinese church.Earlier this week his mother put him down for a nap in the apartment where we stayed in Dalian. His grandfather serves as a church worker in a Chinese city with very few Christians. He and his mother and father and grandfather came to Dalian to spend two days with us. I was very pleased wh...
“In the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ’coming’ he promised?” (2 Peter 3:3-4).Scoffers have always been with us.The easiest argument against a miracle is always, “Nothing like that has ever happened before, therefore nothing like that can ...
I write this on the eve of Judgment Day, the one predicted by Harold Camping and his followers. The prediction relies on a complex set of assumptions and mathematical calculations regarding Bible chronology that the rest of us recognize for what it is. Nonsense.No one knows the day or the hour. No one knows for certain how close the return of Chris...
I’m writing this note in the Business Center across from Gate 64 at the Tampa airport. In about an hour, I’ll board a plane to fly home, thus ending my final trip of the year.

Two things made me stop and think . . . 1) This editorial cartoon by Jeff Stahler of The Columbus Dispatch seems to perfectly catch the mood of so many people today. I cannot remember a time when I have encountered as much genuine anxiety in so many places among so many places. Truly we live in unsettling times.2) Writing in Mere Comments, La...
Would you comment on predestination versus free will?How much time do we have? Not enough to cover this vast subject. The question implies that predestination (which the Bible unquestionably teaches–see Romans 8:29 and Ephesians 1:5) and free will somehow oppose each other. But as Spurgeon pointed out when asked how he “reconciled&rdquo...
On the Friday edition of “Today’s Issues,” Tim Wildmon and I interviewed Franklin Graham about his father’s new book Storm Warning, which discusses the Second Coming and current events. Franklin also gave us an update on his father’s health and also talked briefly about the three Samaritan’s Purse workers who w...

This morning in Sunday School Mike Ferris led a discussion regarding the Second Coming of Christ from 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. He pointed out that our focus ought to be on the fact of Christ’s return, not on the timing because no one knows when he will come back.
