The apostle John, in the Book of Revelation, writes of a “first resurrection.” In this presentation we cover the second one. Some people consider this resurrection a mystery. While it seems true that the further out a mentioned event is on the Bible timeline, the more obscure the references. But the second resurrection is not so far out that we can’t gain a lot of detail about it, when it occurs, who is resurrected, what form they take. If you don’t understand this point of Bible truth, or if you need to explain it to others, this presentation can help.

The patriarch Job asked, “If a man die, will he live again?” The answer, from the Bible, is "Yes." But it’s not like you might think. It’s way better. Listen to this presentation to understand more about God’s plan for all his children, past present and future.
In this last part of the Life After Death Series, we continue on with the time progression through the Book of Revelation that provides a chronology of the final events in God’s plan as he has revealed it. Once we understand the Bible on this issue, we can see why God says he is “not willing that any should perish,” and how he is going to have His way in it. It’s good news!
In this fourth part of the series, Life After Death, we prove out of the Bible that there is no such thing as an immortal soul. Instead there is something much better in store for us. For those who already know, this offers a helpful review, for those new to it, the light of God’s truth on the subject—right out of the Bible.
Jesus told us his Father is a farmer. Our Father is growing a crop of beings for his kingdom. We are those crops. What’s the import of that? God has a plan and we are a part of it. He is tending to us, cultivating, planting, watering, weeding, and harvesting. In our age, disconnected from the land, this might not mean much to us, but if we want to know what God is doing, we would be wise to learn more about his farming efforts.
A friend asked us to produce a presentation explaining Christ’s return in a way that children could understand. This presentation is my effort at that—an outline with context. A timely presentation for the Festival of Trumpets, which falls on the first day of the 7th month. A day when ancient Israel blew the 7th Trumpet.
When some of us think of Noah’s flood, we think of cute cartoons of animals filing into an ark. It goes without saying there is a lot more to it than that. Besides the doubts some have about the logistics of the ark, what about the issue of God killing off his own children. Such a thought causes some to opine that God is a monster. That’s why we call it a Bible Story for Adults.
How we think about the forces at work in life it is supposed to change once we become Christians. This is because God begins to work with us in a different way than he did before we came to him. Learn more about these changes in How Christian Life Works.
Is there a way to raise children to be responsible for their own actions and to understand the connection between what they do and what happens to them as a result? Order Character for Kids to learn more.
The Bible tells us to stick to the faith Jesus brought to the earth. Over the ages, that model has been watered down and distorted—added to and taken away from. Yet, the true Gospel Jesus brought to earth is still it available to us in the pages of the Bible. It’s easy enough to compare what we do today to the original faith seen in the New Testament and see the clear differences. How close to the original is your faith and practice?
