Accurate Bible teaching is a real need believers have in these times of confusion. The Bible, as the Word of God, must be taught accurately and then we can correctly interpret and make application to our lives. When we are surrounded with trends that would rather have quick fixes and entertainment, such a priority is missed. We should never be afraid to explore, to ask tough questions, to pursue biblical truth at all costs. It can fix our attitudes and help us mature.

One of the biggest untruths propagated in schools and the media is naturalistic and theistic evolution. What we believe about our origins significantly affects our worldview and self view. The interpretation that humans got here through chaos, suffering, and death can tragically affect views of Scripture and the reasons for Christ’s resurrection. Biblical creation as written in Genesis was later validated by Jesus Himself. In addition, recent unbiased scientific discoveries perplex evolutionists and continue to verify a vastly younger earth and universe created by God in six evening and morning days as the historical narrative states in the book of Genesis.

We understand more of what God is doing when we understand what He has planned for the Church and Israel (Romans 9-11). At a time known only to Him, the Bible reveals the next prophetic event is the translation of believers from the world just before the Tribulation that leads to the return of Christ to Jerusalem. Then God’s covenant promises to Israel will be fulfilled. Knowing we could be with Jesus Christ any day ought to move us to greater love for God and our neighbors, along with increasing purity in our lives.

It also means we will pursue a heart of love for the Jewish people that the Apostle Paul had and God still has in seeing them as beloved for the sake of the fathers. Never forget, our salvation is from the Jews, just as Jesus said in John 4. May our prayer each day be “come quickly Jesus!”

We believe the three items below are crucial for believers today. What could be more foundational and practical to knowing God’s will than seeing what God’s Word says about our present, past, and future?
