City of Mystery

Allegory:  noun.  “a story used for teaching, in which people, things, and happenings have a hidden or symbolic meaning.” In a faraway land laden with abundant peace and joy, and cloaked in wondrous mystery, a fair and lovely city nestles serenely and securely among the foothills of a nearby high and lofty mountain.  This cityContinue reading “City of Mystery”

Angel Visit

NOTE: Recently, the following report appeared on my home-office FAX machine. Obviously, it appeared there by mistake; we have been unable to trace its source, and our FAX machine was not malfunctioning at the time. Doubtless the mysterious report was not intended for human eyes, but because of its startling contents, I am reproducing itContinue reading “Angel Visit”

My Visit To Heaven

This is not one of my teachings.  Its an advertisement for one of my books. On March 6, 2018, I was invited to visit Heaven.  I wrote about that in a book titled Heaven:  Our Home Sweet Homeland. You can purchase my book at billsbooks.org or at amazon.com as an e-book, or in softcover, or hardcover. Here’s what God askedContinue reading “My Visit To Heaven”

Solid Foundation

It’s just plain ol’ common sense: if someone begins to construct a building that will stand firm and last a long time, they should always begin with a solid foundation. If you don’t have a solid, strong foundation, whatever you construct on that foundation will fall apart and collapse.  God is engaged in the lifelong processContinue reading “Solid Foundation”

Bible Overview

Recently, some of my students (pre-believers and new believers in Jesus) asked me to teach them a brief overview of the Bible. They wanted the Bible “in a nutshell.” They didn’t want an in-depth history of the Old and New Testaments, nor did they want a verse-by-verse exposition of the Bible. They simply wanted aContinue reading “Bible Overview”

Apokatastasis

This is a simple listing of a relatively few resources for those people who believe the biblical concept of apokatastasis (as defined a few paragraphs later). Believe it or not, this lengthy writing really is a simple listing of only about 25 resources, BUT God has asked me to give some historical and contextual background information for most of theContinue reading “Apokatastasis”

Anastasia

Everything ever written about Jesus has been written since his resurrection. The resurrection of Jesus sets Him apart from all other religious leaders in all of history: they’re still dead. He’s alive! Take away Jesus’ resurrection and your faith in Him collapses. Your faith is in vain. Nothing about Jesus would be worth discussing orContinue reading “Anastasia”

Hope In History

There’s an ancient teaching that was almost abandoned or set aside as being incorrect about 1,500 years ago, but was resurrected in part about 150 – 175 years ago. It is now rapidly spreading around the world. It’s a teaching from the Bible that before He completes all his purposes, God is going to lovinglyContinue reading “Hope In History”
