Instructions and Rules Regarding Sharing My Images:

If you're going to use my graphics, please follow these rules. First, do not alter these graphics in any way. Do not chop them up and use them in your own graphics. Second, do not resize them in any way, being as this will deteriorate their quality, and may make them more difficult to read for people who have vision problems. Third, do not remove my name or my website URL from any of the images. Please have the courtesy and the Christian decency to give credit to whom credit is due. Considering how many 1000s of hours I've invested in creating these graphics, and the fact that I freely offer these images to my online friends, I think this is a fair request. Remember: "The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good." -- Proverbs 15:3, KJV.

If you wish to share an entire image category on a social network in which you participate, on each image category page, there are rows of buttons for various social networks. Just click on those buttons, and add your personal comment before sharing it. However, if you need more sharing options, you may prefer to visit my Bill's Bible Basics Blog instead. These very same images are posted there as well, in the Bill's Graphics category. The advantage to doing this is that on the BBB Blog, each image is on its own page. In addition, my blog has eleven different sharing buttons to choose from. You can also print or email each graphic on my blog as well. You will find a link to my blog at the bottom of this same page.

I hope you are blessed, inspired and motivated by my work here!

Your fellowservant,
Bill Kochman

Bible Study Resources:

NOTE #1: In Acts 2:16-18, the Apostle Peter -- who had just been filled with the Holy Spirit -- is clearly saying two things: Joel's prophecy was being fulfilled at that time during the First Century, and that period was also the Last Days. The phrase “last days” does NOT mean from 30 AD to the 21st Century, as some modern, Futurist-leaning Bible teachers erroneously teach. That is a false doctrine of men.

NOTE #2: The fact that in 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18 the Apostle Paul includes himself by saying “we” is clear proof that he was expecting Christ's soon return, and he was hoping to still be alive to witness it.

NOTE #3: In Hebrews 1:1-2, the phrase "lasts days” refers to the very end of the Prophet Daniel's 70 weeks -- or 490 years -- prophecy. It has nothing to do with our modern times, as Futurists claim.

NOTE #4: In Hebrews 10:37, the phrase "a little while" does NOT mean 2,000 years in the future as the Futurists claim.

NOTE #5: In James 5:2-3, 7-8, the Apostle James is likewise confirming that it was the Last Days, and he was convinced that Jesus would be returning soon.

NOTE #6: 1 Peter 4:7 confirms the phrase "in these last days" mentioned in Hebrews 1:1-2 above.

NOTE #7: In 1 John 2:18, not once, but twice, the Apostle John tells his readers that it is the Last Time, or the very end of the Prophet Daniel's 70 weeks prophecy.

Conclusion: Peter, James and John -- who were Jesus' inner circle -- as well as the Apostle Paul, were all convinced that Jesus would return during their lifetimes, exactly as He had promised them in these verses:

"In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I WILL COME AGAIN, AND RECEIVE YOU unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also . . . I will not leave you comfortless: I WILL COME TO YOU."
John 14:2-3, 18, KJV

How can so many modern, Futurist-leaning Christians continue to resist the plain truth of the Scriptures?
