Micah

An overview of each of the “Minor” Prophets in the Old Testament. It’s in our nature to sacrifice that which costs us less or little.

Prophecy Update #574 – Globe Plotting

When talking about the End Times, we frequently use the phrase, “One-World Government.” It comes from a literal reading of passages in the Revelation. A component of the One-World Government will be a global system of currency. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 48:1-35 – Shammah Wow!

Ezekiel ends his remarkable prophecy by letting us know that in the future Millennial Kingdom, Jerusalem will have a new name. Weʼll see it in the very last verse of the book – Jehovah-Shammah. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 44:1-31 – In My House, Where My Priests Serve, Where My Children Pray

We begin to get the order of service in the future Millennial Temple. The very fact that there is an order of service and that the believers have certain assignments is itself instructive. You see, whenever we get together, there is to be some order in our serving the Lord and serving one another. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 43:6-27 – The Word Bible Isn’t In The Bible

Sooner or later someone is going to tell you that the word “Trinity” is not found in the Bible. Thatʼs correct. A lot of words arenʼt found in the Bible. For example, the word “bible” is not found in the Bible, but we use it anyway to describe the Bible. Next time someone tells you that “Trinity” is not found in the Bible, tell them they are using a word to describe the Bible that isnʼt found in the Bible! (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 41:1-26 – Disregarders Of The Lost Ark

Ezekiel had missed an opportunity. At the start of our studies we noted that although Ezekiel was a priest, he was exiled to Babylon before he was of age to actually serve in the Temple at Jerusalem. To say it was a disappointment would be an understatement. But now, as his visions are concluding and his book is nearing its end, Ezekiel is getting a glimpse of the future Temple, the Millennial Temple. He saw it before any other Israelite, priest or otherwise. Not only that, he was guided on his tour by the Lord Himself. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 40:1-5 – A Tour De Future

Everyone who reads the last nine chapters of Ezekiel asks and therefore must answer this question: Will there be animal sacrifices in the Temple during the future Millennial Kingdom on the earth? (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 38:14-23 – Quake Boss

Reading about what is going to happen to the armies of Gog when they invade from the north reminded me of the futility of Das Boot. Before ever getting near Israel there is a mighty earthquake. Itʼs so disorienting that the soldiers turn upon one another and kill one another. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 38:1-13 – Captain Hooked

Itʼs going to be God versus Gog. Ezekiel was told to “prophesy against him,” against Gog, the captain of these would be conquerers. We might call him ʻCaptain Hooked,ʼ because God says He will “put hooks into [his] jaws, and lead [him] out. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 38.1-8 – Be In The Fight Place At The Right Time

Prophecy expert Mark Hitchcock says, “By far, the most controversial issue in Ezekiel 38-39 is the timing of the invasion. The specific time of the invasion in Ezekiel 38 is difficult to determine.” I should explain that we believe that this prophecy is literal and historical. In other words, it describes a real military campaign against Israel that happens sometime in human history. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 38:1-6 – Who Are Those Guys?

Weʼve come to the most quoted passage, the most referenced passage, in the Book of Ezekiel. Chapters thirty-eight and thirty-nine tell of a coming northern confederacy of nations around the Black and Caspian seas who with Persia and North Africa will invade the promised land after Israelʼs restoration to it in the last days. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 37:1-28 – Dem’ Bones

Ezekiel was an extraordinary illustrator of Bible truth. He was a walking Keynote presentation. His visions and his acted-out dramas brought Godʼs prophecies to life for the exiles in Babylon. We encounter two more of those in chapter thirty-seven. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 36:1-15 – Brought Back To The Mountain

The last fifty years has seen the desert of Israel blossom into a world leader in agriculture. It is exactly what you would expect from reading Bible prophecy regarding the last days. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 35:1-15 – Where Have All The Edomites Gone?

High on the list of historic anti-semites are the descendants of Jacobʼs brother, Esau. They are the Edomites and are associated with Mount Seir. Their judgment is described in chapter thirty-five. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 34:1-31 – Sheepwrecked

Ezekiel thirty-four is all about shepherding. The Lord will compare the leaders of Israel to false, cruel shepherds who put their own needs ahead of His people. Then God will introduce the true shepherd of Israel to be revealed in the last days. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 29-32 – Egypt In Denial

Weʼre in a long section of Ezekiel that declares Godʼs judgment against seven nations. In chapters 29 through 32 we come to a long section in that long section that deals entirely with Egypt. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 28:20-26 – A Thorn In Your Sidon

In this short section Ezekiel pronounces a quick judgment upon the city of Sidon, then reminds us in the closing verses of the chapter that itʼs all about Israel. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 26:1-21 – Overinflated Tyre

Our passage in Ezekiel is a great example of predictive prophecy coming true in actual human history. I want to look at it from that perspective – as a proof of the Bibleʼs inspiration. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Prophecy Update #573 – What’s The Score

China’s social credit score is starting to have a major effect over every day life for her citizens. It’s not unlike the system the Antichrist will set up according to Bible prophecy (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 21:18-32 – Ain’t It Divine

In our text tonight King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon practices divination to make an important decision. God will overrule the results to accomplish His divine providence. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 20:45-21:17 – Only You Can Endure Forest Fires

If your life was a song, right now, what song would it be? I only ask because our text tonight will end in a song, and itʼs a pretty sad one. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 20:1-32 – Not On Seeking Terms

The leaders among the exiles in Babylon came to Ezekiel seeking to inquire from the Lord. Problem was, they were no longer on ʻseeking termsʼ with God. In verse three the Lord directed Ezekiel to say, “I will not be inquired of by you.” (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Psalm 37:32-40 – Plant A Tree For God’s Tomorrow

David closes his wisdom psalm with an encouragement for us to take care to watch our steps and to observe other Godly believers. (Assistant Pastor Geno)

Ezekiel 16:35-63 – Like Mother, Like Daughter

The first thirty-four verses of chapter sixteen described the Jews in Judah and especially Jerusalem as an adulterous wife to God and a harlot to the surrounding Gentile nations. Godʼs judgment upon her is the subject of the rest of the chapter. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 15:1-8 – Another Vine Mess You’ve Gotten Us Into

Ezekiel, in chapter fifteen, is going to talk about Israel as Godʼs vine. Itʼs the first of three illustrations over the next three chapters that show Jerusalem and the Temple will not be spared from judgment. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 14:12-23 – Three Men And A Blight

It seems that the Jews of the sixth century held to a hero mentality. Daniel had been carried away into Babylon. By the time of our text he was twenty-five years old. Heʼd already distinguished himself as a righteous man. Though some of his greatest accomplishments were still ahead of him, he was a bona fide hero. Perhaps God would use Daniel in Babylon to deliver the Jews in Jerusalem from further destruction. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 13:17-23 – Black Magic Women

We encounter a group of women who are false prophetesses. While Israel was plagued with false prophets who spoke openly and publicly, a network of false prophetesses was at work behind the scenes in private. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 13:1-16 – Don’t Get Plastered

The exiles in Babylon were encouraged they would soon be free to return to Israel. The people should have felt the foulness of their words. The false prophets and prophetesses spoke not a word against Israelʼs idolatry. It was foul of them to overlook sin, to ignore Godʼs moral law, and tell the people what they wanted to hear. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Ezekiel 12:17-28 – Waiting To Expunge

Ezekiel was quite the actor there on the banks of the river Chebar in Babylon. He had just finished a one-man, one-day engagement during which he dug a hole through the wall of his house and portrayed a man trying to
