Recovering the classic, Protestant interpretation of Bible prophecy.

Devotional Videos

I began recording these Bible study devotionals during the Covid-19 pandemic for the church where I serve as the preaching pastor. I hope you will test my teaching by the light of the Word of God. But I want you to know that I take it as a sacred duty to carefully and accurately teach what God's Word says. I received my Masters degree in Christian Studies from Northwest Baptist Seminary, and am currently working on a Doctor of Ministry from The Master's Seminary. For a summary of my doctrinal beliefs, please see our Statement of Faith.

These devotionals were selected to be listed on this page because they focus on the theme of being ready for the second coming of Christ. The complete playlist of all my YouTube devotional videos can be found here. The videos below contain brief expositions of the following Scripture passages:
