I believe righteousness is a greater force than wickedness (Eph. 6:10-17).
I believe we are the light of the world (Matt. 5:14).
I believe that although gross darkness is on the peoples, that the glory of the Lord will shine on us and ultimately cover the earth (see Isaiah 60).
I believe light is greater than darkness, and that darkness cannot overcome light (John 1:5).
I believe “greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4).
I believe Jesus will build His church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it (see Matthew 16:18). Gates are for defense. When the church of God is on the offensive, walking in holiness and obedience, the “gates of hell,” protecting the interests of hell, cannot withstand us. Child-killers, earth-worshippers, and pornographers are no match for an obedient, Holy Spirit-filled church. When we are doing what we should be doing, with God’s anointing, the wicked cannot prevail against us.
I believe the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, not the devil’s (Ps. 24:1a).
I believe Jesus was manifested to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8). If we are conformed to His image (Rom 8:29), we will also destroy the works of the devil. I believe we can rebuild the ancient ruins and raise up the age-old foundations of righteousness (see Isaiah 58:6-12 and Isaiah 61:1-6).
I believe that the Kingdom of God is like a grain of mustard seed, which grows into a plant that dominates the whole garden (Luke 13:18-19).
I believe Christ is the Rock cut without hands who smashes the idol’s feet and slowly fills the earth (Dan. 2:45).
I believe all authority, in heaven and earth, is given to Christ now (Matt. 28:18).
I believe He is the King of kings and Lord of lords now (see 1 Timothy 6:15). He is the boss.
I believe all kings, princes, and judges are duty bound to obey Him now, lest He destroy them in His wrath (see Psalm 2).
I believe Jesus is returning for a glorious church — without spot or wrinkle (Eph. 5:27)—not some beaten down church whimpering in the corner until Jesus comes!
The parable said, “Occupy till I come,” not “hide out till I come” (Luke 19:13).
Finally (and this is for the true eschatological student), I believe most of Matthew 24 and book of Revelation are history.
This is a quick (and not comprehensive) view of my eschatology.

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology
By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.
All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?
These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy
Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.
Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.
Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.
