As 2015 rapidly comes to a close its time to look back at our most popular articles of the past year. This website has been a labor of love for me. The articles represent some of the Bible topics I have been studying over the past year or two. My purpose has been to share and inform – not to argue. I’m honestly excited about what I have learned. Each article represents hours of study. Enjoy the following round-up of the ten most read articles of 2015.
This article explores the identity of Mystery Babylon. Many were taught that Mystery Babylon is the Vatican in Rome, Italy. But is this really what the scriptures reveal? There are seven (7) important clues that point us to the true identity of Mystery Babylon.
I got to say that I caught some flak over this article. What exactly is the “Kingdom of God”? What is the nature of the “Kingdom“? The book of Romans gives us a hint as to what the “Kingdom of God” is and what it is not.
Who is God? What is His Name? Or better yet does He even have a name? What is the nature of God? I’m sure you have asked these questions at some point in your life. This was the first of a four (4) part series on the subject of the Godhead. Admittedly, this is a deep subject to wrap your head around. The four (4) part series really needs to be read in its entirety.
Admit it. When you read of the “melting elements” in 2 Peter 3:10(KJV) don’t you automatically assume that the verse is referring to the elements of chemistry’s periodic table of elements? Is 2 Peter 3:10 predicting the destruction of our physical universe? Or is it something else all together?
There’s a reason we don’t feed a t-bone steak to a newborn baby. Likewise newborn babes in Christ need the “milk” of the Word while more mature Christians need a steady diet of “meat”. But what do the scriptures reveal about the Milk and Meat of the Word? Read this article to find out.
I was not surprised that this article was in the top ten. An honestly I don’t know where to start here. I considered writing a follow-up article on this subject of “blood moons”. There were four (4) “blood moons” from April 2014 to September 2015. False teachers (I won’t name names) with a national/international following predicted that when we see the four blood moons that we should look up because our redemption draweth nigh! Well the last I checked September 2015 has come and gone and no second coming. So where did these so-called prophecy experts go wrong? When someone dabbles into assigning calamities based on celestial movements, they are what the Bible calls divinators. Read this article to find out more on this sensationalist topic.
Do you want to really understand the Bible? Then study it from the perspective of the covenants. This will go a long way in helping you to “rightly divide” the Word of God. This article explores the major covenants of the Bible.
Some suggest that the Bible prophesies of a “last days” regathering of the Jewish people to Israel. Various “proof texts” are cited to support this belief. In examining these “proofs”, we find that these scriptures were either already fulfilled during one of the Old Testament exiles or that they foretold of the coming promises of the New Covenant of Jesus Christ. Remember, Jesus’ focus was not on a physical land, but on a spiritual existence in His people!
Quite frankly I was a little surprised at the interest that readers showed in this article. I had been taught that the “Church” was born or began on the “Day of Pentecost”. But it that really what the scriptures teach? Could it be that the New Testament “Church” is simply a continuation of the assembly of believers in the Old Testament? Read this controversial article to find out.
Well I must say that I was not surprised to see that this article was the most popular for 2015. Maybe I should write a book on the subject of the “Mark of the Beast”. Of course I think if I simply stick with the scriptures that it would be a monumental flop! Many modern day Bible teachers will tell you that the “Mark of the Beast” referred to in Revelation chapter 13 is an embedded computer chip. And once you take the “Mark of the Beast” you are done for. Salvation in Christ will NOT be an option for you. But is that really what the “Mark of the Beast” is about? Is that the correct interpretation? How was the idea of a “mark” used throughout the rest of the scriptures? Was the “mark” always physical or was it spiritual in nature? This number one article for 2015 explores this and many more questions regarding the controversial subject of the “Mark of the Beast”.
Thanks for making the first year of the Scripture Revealed a great success. We have had visitors to the site from around the world. Readership and subscriptions have steadily increased throughout the year. We are looking forward to what the scriptures will reveal in 2016 as we study to show ourselves approved. May the Lord richly bless each of you in the coming year!
