“He also caused everyone (small and great, rich and poor, free and slave) to obtain a mark on their right hand [χειρὸς] or on their forehead [μέτωπον]” (Revelation 13:16 NET) Why will the Antichrist use both the hand and the forehead for his evil-intentioned use in his mark and image system?

I Can Already Hear the Pretribber Teachers and Pastors Saying, ‘Don’t Worry, You’ll Be Raptured Before This Takes Place!’ Thankfully, more and more Christians everyday are ignoring this illusory mantra and listening to what the Bible clearly teaches on this issue.

It is disappointing that he still holds this view after almost thirty-five years ago he asserted this. I want to […]

How Far Can You Go and Still Be Able to Repent? A Plea to John MacArthur

Move Over QR Codes, Here Comes Near Field Communication

Applications: “He also caused everyone (small and great, rich and poor, free and slave) to obtain a mark on their right hand or on their forehead.
