The Lord’s Prayer…So-Called

The Lord’s Prayer—so-called—is not exclusively Jesus’ prayer; rather it is a means of prayer, a prayer outline that Jesus taught his disciples upon their request.  In fact, it seems that the only time the disciples may have asked Jesus to specifically teach them anything was when they asked Him to teach them how to pray Continue reading “The Lord’s Prayer…So-Called”

Eternity In My Heart

The Bible teaches that God has “placed eternity” in the heart of every human being!  That sounds like a nice religious sentiment—even sort of poetic, but what does it really mean?  A good place to begin in answering that question is to define some words and terms:  God, eternity, heart, etc. Here we go…  OfContinue reading “Eternity In My Heart”

Revelation Unveiled

Worship His Majesty! What I will share with you for the next 25 minutes may be new to you.  That’s okay.  Holy Spirit began to share these thoughts with me only 7 weeks ago (June 2020) and I still have much to learn.  Please understand that I am not trying to push these thoughts onContinue reading “Revelation Unveiled”

Hope In God’s Promises

Most of us humans—being self-centered and self-absorbed for the most part—often break our promises—even if we’re well-intended in attempting to keep our promises.  It’s a rare human who doesn’t break promises sometimes—for real or contrived reasons.  We break promises to God, to family members, to our children, to friends, to bosses, to customers…and the paradeContinue reading “Hope In God’s Promises”

Hope In Our Father

As of this writing I’ve known Gerry Beauchemin, author of two popular books, Hope Beyond Hell and Hope For All, for about a decade.  However, I don’t know much about Gerry’s early life or any of his biographical, family history; those facts about his personal history have just never come up in our many discussions. Continue reading “Hope In Our Father”

Hope In Judgment

At the outset of this teaching, I want to point out that both judgment and justice in the Bible are topics and concepts that are inseparably related—but also much different in many respects and in many aspects.                 In a perfect world here on planet earth, a courtroom judge would weigh very carefully a caseContinue reading “Hope In Judgment”

Hope In Justice

The book, Hope For All, by my friend Gerry Beauchemin, lists 10 Anchors or 10 reasons why God’s infinite and eternal love ultimately draws everything and everyone to Himself.  To me, this book, along with its companion book, Hope Beyond Hell, studied together, is the clearest introduction available on the market today about the subjectContinue reading “Hope In Justice”

4 Views: Who Has the Final Word?

You may not want to hear it. You may not believe me. But I want to tell you an astonishing truth right up front: not all Jesus believers on this planet believe exactly the same as you do, but they’re still believers in Jesus! I know, I know . . . that’s a real shockContinue reading “4 Views: Who Has the Final Word?”

Apokatastasis

This teaching is simply some very basic information from various extra-biblical (not non-biblical, or anti-biblical, however!) 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 meContinue reading “Apokatastasis”

Eternal LIFE

Got LIFE?! As I visit with various Jesus believers and pre-believers here and there in person and by correspondence and e-mail around the world, I find that many of them have only a vague, nebulous concept of what real LIFE—eternal LIFE—is all about.  Here’s what the Bible teaches: Eternal LIFE is God’s own uncreated, self-existent, imperishable,Continue reading “Eternal LIFE”
