In light of the Day of the LORD being near, patient, enduring faith in God, His Messiah, and the restoration of all things is the foundation of the church's mission in this age. The church is called to faithfully witness to Jesus and the judgment to come, which is essentially amnestic in nature, as we represent the kindness and longsuffering of the Lord towards the wicked.

This amnestic witness is best typified in martyrdom, which the church must embrace wholeheartedly at the end of the age as wickedness comes to its fullest expression. The scriptures plainly declare that...

Modern Western Christian theology has developed in tandem with the Western worldview, which incorrectly divides existence into two distinct realms - "natural" and "supernatural". Because of this unbiblical dichotomy, two streams of thought have developed regarding salvation and sovereignty - that God is "saving souls for an ethereal heaven" (float on a cloud and play a harp), and/or God is attempting to regain dominion over the world through the church (transforming society and taking dominion).

In session 3 of the Biblical Theology Seminar, John Harrigan teaches on the...

In this teaching for Session 1 of the Biblical Theology Seminar, John Harrigan outlines the three-fold nature of truth - truth of heart, truth of mind, and truth of lifestyle.

The judgment of the Day of the LORD is first an evaluation of the heart based on the standard of the cross of Christ. In this light, we must guard against hypocrisy and a lifestyle like the Pharisees.

The circumstantial ease of the West has contributed to a false understanding that suffering is not normal to the Christian life. Jesus often spoke otherwise.

Jesus is seen as glorious through the alleviation of suffering and the display of His power, but is also seen as glorious through the restraint of His power. We glorify Jesus in the midst of suffering by rejoicing in Him, and we glorify Him in the midst of ease when we shed tears of longing for Him.

In this teaching, Stephen Venable presents a biblical theology of suffering with the glory of Christ as the backdrop,...

With this final article in my series on the beauty of Jesus in the Incarnation, I want to focus on the salvation of God in the Incarnation. More than presenting you with dry theological facts or systematic theology, I am hoping to connect you with the epic narrative that God has been writing since the dawn of time. God’s story of salvation, redemption, and restoration is the human story, and He invites us to listen, watch, and participate as He unfolds it before us....

In my last article in this Christmas series, I looked at a more well-known aspect of Christmas – the humility of Jesus. But today I want to take an extended post to tackle probably one of the most neglected, misunderstood, and misrepresented facets of Christ’s first coming in light of the grand narrative of redemption. Jesus took on flesh to display the LORD as a zealous, jealous judge that will use the least severe means necessary to divide the thoughts and intents of men’s hearts. His jealousy is not only reserved for a dramatic act at the end of the age (which I have...
