This blog is being posted for the benefit of those living in or within driving range of Prescott, Arizona. I will be giving two live messages at a Feast of Tabernacles/Sukkot Fall Festival meeting in that city. The dates will be on October 7 and October 12. The first date will feature a message entitled Israel’s Lost Empires and will be about the material in the second book in my 4-book series on the history of the ten tribes of Israel. This message will reveal evidence that not all the tribes of Israel went into captivity even though they all did go into exile. Some of these exiles founded Israelite empires in new locations, but the world has not grasped their Israelite origins. I’m sure you’ve heard the name of at least one of these empires from the name the Romans gave it, but that was not the Israelite/Hebrew name this empire gave itself.
The second message will be entitled “How Many Will God Save?” and it examines via biblical scriptures the common Christian concept that everyone goes to “heaven and hell” based exclusively on what happens in this life. If sinners go to an “ever-burring hell” where they are always conscious, why does the Bible flatly say “the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23)? Also, what do you do with all the billions of people who never heard the name (or anything about) Jesus Christ/Yahshua, the only “name…whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12)? What happens in the mysterious (and little-studied) resurrection after the millennium in which the book of life is (again) “opened” (Revelation 20:5, 11-12)? This message will address all these questions.
I put the word “live” in quotations in the title above as I will be giving these live messages to live audiences over a phone link, and live Q&A will also be available, but I will not be there in person. If you are in or near Prescott, Arizona and wish to attend the meetings where these messages will be given, please contact the organizers of this meeting at ourfathersfestival.net for details.
