1914 – What's the Problem?

Artfully Contrived Stories

(2 Peter 1:16-18) . . .No, it was not by following artfully contrived false stories that we acquainted YOU with the power and presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, but it was by having become eyewitnesses of his magnificence. 17 For he received from God the Father honor...

The Devil's Great Con Job

Why do we hold on to 1914 so tenaciously?  Is it not because a war broke out in that year?   A really big war, at that. In fact, “the war to end all wars.”  Challenge 1914 to the average Witness and they won’t come at you with counter-arguments about the end of the...

Great Signs and Wonders – When?

Okay, this one gets a little confusing, so bear with me. Let's start by reading Matthew 24:23-28, and when you do, ask yourself when are these words fulfilled? (Matthew 24:23-28) “Then if anyone says to YOU, ‘Look! Here is the Christ,’ or, ‘There!’ do not believe it....
