Recovering the classic, Protestant interpretation of Bible prophecy.

Covid-19 Devotionals

These devotionals were recorded during the Covid-19 pandemic for the church where I serve as the preaching pastor. 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 Bible passages like Matthew 24, 1 Thessalonians 4 and 5, 1 Corinthians 15, and Revelation, in addition to various cross-referenced Old Testament Scriptures like Daniel 7, Psalm 110, Psalm 8:6, and Isaiah 25.
