Episode 282: The highly anticipated reboot of the Left Behind series hit theaters this past Friday. Starring Nicholas Cage and based upon the book by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, it tells the story of a group of people who have survived the rapture, i.e. the faulty belief that when Jesus returns, He will take faithful Christians out of the world but leave behind (hence the title) all the faithless.

Episode 188: There’s all kinds of noise in Revelation 18 as angel’s decree the judgment of Rome and as the various people on earth mourn over the destruction of Rome. What about the people of God? Tune in and note the contrast between the mourning of “those who dwell upon the earth” and the saints of God.

Episode 187: Revelation 17 unveils for us the identity of the nation or empire which will be judged by God and His wrath poured out upon them: Rome. With heavy emphasis on Old Testament prophecy (esp. Daniel 7), John, by means of angelic interpreter, describes the nation precisely and reveals history before it happens.
