Articles of commentary on the prophetic book of Daniel.

King of the North from the time of Christ

How did we arrive at this point in history? What past events have brought the world to the present state at this moment in time? God has allowed for the temporary provision of human governments in various forms even though these have been dominated by greedy, short-sighted, and oftentimes tyrannical men. The alternative is tribalism and anarchy and a much lower population. Although allowing for the [...]

The Invisible War

Part 3 During the darkest days of WW2 the Watchtower’s president, Nathan Knorr, gave a public address oddly entitled: Peace— Can it Last? The Watchtower expected the war to end and a period of peace to follow. And they were right. Following through on that expectation Knorr established The Watchtower Bible College of Gilead (now just known as Gilead) in order to train missionaries, who [...]

The King Made an Image of Gold

A continuation of the Daniel series Although Nebuchadnezzar praised Daniel’s God as the Revealer of secrets and the “God of gods” he was not moved to forsake Babylon’s idolatry and exclusively worship the Supreme One. On the contrary. He nationalized idolatry. The next chapter of Daniel (3) reveals that the king of Babylon erected an enormous golden image towering nearly 100 feet high. The account [...]

What is the meaning of prophetic chronology?

Please allow me to ask about what is your take on Daniel's 7 times, 2300, 1260, 1290 and 1335 days since his prophecy of 70 weeks of years pointed correctly to the first coming of Jesus? Ever since C.T. Russell first came on the scene the Bible Students and now Jehovah’s Witnesses, have been mesmerized by the seven times of Daniel’s prophecy. What is particularly interesting [...]

Throwing Truth to the Earth

This is an updated revision of a previously published article. The world is full of lies and liars. And it is no wonder, the presently presiding overlord and god of this world is none other than Satan the Devil – the Deceiver and “the father of the lie,” according to Jesus. The extent of Satan’s influence can be gauged by considering that the 12th chapter of [...]

Keep Paying Attention to Daniel

The writing is on the wall. The world now stands at the brink of a great war; no doubt a global war, a war that will undoubtedly far surpass the horrors and hardships wrought by the 20th century’s two bloody world wars. The war now developing will most assuredly be the most tumultuous calamity ever experienced by any generation – it will overturn civilization itself. But [...]

Brexit and the Beast

QUESTION: What are your thoughts on the “Brexit”? Does this have anything to do with Bible prophecy? ANSWER: Britain’s exit from the European Union seems to have taken everyone by surprise. Except it should be pointed out that it is not a done deal yet. The referendum may be nullified or overturned. That said, whether the United Kingdom actually leaves the Union is irrelevant, as it [...]

The Time of the End

This article is an enlargement of a previous post with the same title originally published in 2003 Most people dismiss the possibility that the world might end someday. They go about their lives without giving it a thought. Others, though, might be heard to say: ‘Yes, the world will end some day. But not in my lifetime.’ On the other hand, some suppose that the end [...]

The Disgusting Thing that Causes Desolation

“Therefore, when you catch sight of the disgusting thing that causes desolation, as spoken about by Daniel the prophet, standing in a holy place (let the reader use discernment),  then let those in Judea begin fleeing to the mountains." Jesus Christ __________ An integral part of Jesus’ detailed prophecy concerning his return and the conclusion of the system of things focused on the desolation of Jerusalem by [...]
