Mark of the Beast

Is the RFID chip that may be required in Obama’s Health Care plan really the dreaded mark of the beast? Before we answer that question we need to have a clear understanding of the mark and what the number 666 means. This number becomes perfectly clear when we consider that the number six is the number for man. Man was created on the sixth day and he is only allowed to work six days a week. It’s also one number less than the number seven, which is the number for spiritual perfection. “This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666” (Rev. 13:18). Continue reading Mark of the Beast

Finding Answers to Life’s Problems

Finding Answers to Life's ProblemsAs our country prepares to celebrate our Independence Day unfortunately many in the world don’t feel much like celebrating.

By God’s grace I want to spare you of that. Continue reading Finding Answers to Life’s Problems

Stand Firm Time is Running OutThis following sermon was preached on December 30, 2012 at the Teravista Fellowship Baptist Church in Round Rock, TX

As we fast approach the end of days it will be extremely difficult to stand firm. Standing firm will be especially difficult for those who have wasted their time on meaningless debates and have not developed a solid theological belief system. Core beliefs have been completely ignored while endless arguments are waged over mere words (See II Timothy 2:14, 23). Their false humility and unspiritual minds puff them up capturing weak Christians and casting them into a bed of greater confusion. They go to great length to explain their slant on Christianity while overlooking the historic doctrines believed and practiced by devout Christians from ages past.
