How do we know the 144,000 aren't literal Jews from the 12 tribes? I believe they are not literal Jews but are symbolic. Many symbols are listed in Revelation and this is one.
Many people who are interested in Bible prophecy believe that all eyes should be on modern Israel and the Holy Land. If it is God's chosen nation, should we not have a high interest in the Jews returning to Israel and rebuilding the temple? What does the Bible say about Israel? This broadcast especially looks at the promise to Abraham.
One of the most solemn scenes spoken of in all the Bible is the final judgment. Everyone in every land in all time must face God's judgment. This message will be proclaimed to all nations, kindreds, tongues and all people. The Bible teaches that judgment begins before Christ's return. When is this time? Can we be ready? Will someone be able to represent us?
How will the Lord provide in the last days when we can neither buy nor sell? Like the Israelites who were in Egypt when the plagues fell, we can know God will protect us when the final plagues fall on the earth. Other Bible stories show us God's providence during times of calamity.
How does the mark of the beast relate to buying and selling? References in Scripture to the "hand and forehead" refer to a deeper issue of choice in the minds and actions. It's a Bible principle. Economic sanctions have been used by nations and individually there may be a super card ... but the issue is not a bar code on your forehead.
Should all eyes be focused on literal Israel today in preparation for the end of time? The Bible teaches that the focus of our eyes should be on Jesus in the temple which is in heaven, not the Middle East. Satan has created a deception to draw our eyes away from the place of the real battle. What is the battle of Armageddon?
What is truth? The Bible defines truth as the word of God. Many people turn away from the Bible and believe lies. The church ought to be the protector of truth, but unfortunately many churches have gone the way of the tradition's of mankind.

What is the truth about God's law? Was it done away with? Do we need to seek to be obedient to the Ten Commandments or were they put away when Christ come? The Bible has much to say about a counterfeit righteousness and what true obedience is all about. We would do well to keep both the letter and spirit of the law. Leaving out either is dangerous.
Is there really a devil? Where did Satan come from? The Bible talks clearly about the old serpent who was cast out of heaven. He fell like lightening from heaven. God allowed Satan to be here. The devil led man into sin, but Christ offered a way of salvation that will destroy sin and sinners forever.
There are Sunday blue laws still on the books in many states in the U.S. Does this make this day holy? Theologians from many denominations have recognized that there is not Scriptural support for Sunday sacredness. The Bible speaks of an apostate power seeking to change times and laws in the book of Daniel.
There are lots of disputes about the writings of Paul and even of Jesus. Does 2 Peter 3:3 apply to these people as "scoffers"? Certainly. Later in that same passage Peter refers to people who twist the writings of Paul.

Modern technology can be a blessing to us. But sometimes the very things created to make life easier have unpleasant side effects. This illustrates how our earth is really decaying. God will create a new heaven and a new earth. The thing we need for a better life more than anything else is not new technology as much as the Bible.
Science claims to "know", yet many scientific theories have been cast aside over the years. The Bible has come to us since 1,900 years ago and it continues to be an accurate source of true knowledge.

Is Matthew 18:22 on forgiveness also a reference to the 70 weeks of Daniel 9? It seems to indicate this. God extended great forgiveness to His people as shown in the 490 year prophecy of Daniel 9.
There are many signs of Christ's soon return. Daniel speaks that men shall run to and fro. The speed with which mankind may travel as changed astronomically. Famine and starvation are rampant. The ability of nations to destroy the world many times over indicate these are sobering times that should encourage us to be ready for Jesus' return.
A major theme in the Bible is the second coming of Christ. Should we look forward to it? When will Christ return? What will happen when Jesus returns to this earth? Will it happen once? Will it happen secretly? What does the Bible teach?
