There is No Such Thing As A ‘Messianic Jew’

For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might […]

The Prophets-Not to Be Understood in Any Jewish Sense

For this reason some Jews seized me in the temple and tried to put me to death. So, having obtained help from God, I stand to this day testifying both to small and great, stating nothing but what the Prophets and Moses said was going to take place; that the Christ was to suffer, and […]

10 Reasons to Stop Calling the Gospel ‘Scandalous’

but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness, but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. – I Corinthians 1:23, 24 To those religious Jews in the days surrounding the crucifixion of Christ Jesus, anyone put […]

A Question On Repentance

Brethren, this is not ‘an end-times’ issue, it’s a right-now issue. To convey in any form to any people that God does not command repentance and faith today – before physical death or the return of our Lord – is what I consider the rankest of heresies. It is salvific, a primary issue. I’d like […]

God’s Word or John MacArthur’s?

It’s time to stop ignoring this important issue, and make a choice brethren. Here’s God’s Word: And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment, so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to […]

Is Dispensationalism Anti-Semitic?

Christians who do not agree with the unBiblical teaching of dispensationalism, specifically as it relates to the modern geo-political nation of Israel are often referred to as racists and anti-Semitic, but what about dispensationalists?

Kiss the Son–Not Israel!

No nation is cursed in relationship to physical Israel; they are condemned for not following the Son of God. Most people are not aware that the views about “end times” that they have learned from Bible teachers originated with Irishman John Nelson Darby around 1830. No one in the history of the church had ever […]

One Olive Tree

22 Behold then the kindness and severity of God; to those who fell, severity, but to you, God’s kindness, if you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also will be cut off. 23 And they also, if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them […]

The Solution to Middle East Problems

For no one is a Jew who is merely one outwardly, nor is circumcision outward and physical. But a Jew is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter. His praise is not from man but from God. – Romans 2:28, 29 (ESV) Barack Obama has […]

What Your Pastor Believes

Recently, I polled readers of 5ptsalt the following question: If Pelagius was right 75% of the time, but wrong on some crucial doctrines, would you sit under his teaching in the name of being an ally for the Gospel? The results? 80% of you overwhelmingly said ‘No’. 4% each said either yes, maybe or other. […]

John MacArthur’s Other Gospel

“And I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him, like […]

John MacArthur–Pushing Darby

The following is an historical timeline of sorts, showing the origins of American Dispensationalism. This teaching, founded upon a hard distinction between Israel and the Church, is still, despite it’s origin, being propagated, according to a recent poll by 65% of evangelicals. It is truly disturbing that proclaiming Jesus as King sitting on David’s throne […]

Our Lord Reigns!

Christ has made a conquest over the evil powers (angels), prevailing absolutely against them, and they are put in subjection to Him forever. They are subjected to Him as to their present actings and future condition. He now rules over them and will hereafter finally judge them. And in so far as in His holiness […]

Jesus Christ Is Israel

  It is written: Hosea 11:1 Matthew 2:14, 15 When Israel was a youth I loved him, and out of Egypt I called My Son. And he arose and took the Child and His mother by night, and departed for Egypt; and was there until the death of Herod, that what was spoken by the […]

Today, and Not Partially

It’s Friday, and I was not going to post, but this is bothering me. I hope it will bother you as well. Sunday, we are going to worship the Lord, for His work, for His glory. It will be, or should be, all about Him. You know it and so do I. So, having said […]

Isaiah 35: Glorious Gospel, Millennial Problem

Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; [6] then shall the lame man leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute sing for joy. For waters break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert – Isaiah 35:5,6 (ESV) And the ransomed of […]

Why the Early Church Finally Rejected Premillennialism

For over half of the Church’s history, from the fifth century through most of the Reformation and post-Reformation period, premillennial teaching was virtually non-existent. Such teaching was condemned by the Augsburg Confession, criticized by John Calvin. Only in the nineteenth century did such teaching resurface in popularity. Why is that? Charles Hill wrote some time […]

A Poem on the Bible

In Genesis, the world was made In Exodus, the march is told Leviticus contains the law; In Numbers are the tribes enrolled. In Deuteronomy again, We’re urged to keep God’s law alone; And these five Books of Moses make The oldest holy writing known. Brave Joshua to Canaan leads; In Judges, oft the Jews rebel; […]

Yom Kippur, The Day of Atonement

Today is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, still celebrated by the Jews. As Todd Bolen explains, Jews all over the world observe this day by afflicting themselves through fasting.  Christians generally ignore this day, with the result that they have less understanding of and less appreciation for what Jesus did on the cross. Bolen […]
