Jesse Boyd preached this series at New Testament Christian Fellowship in Claremont, NC over a period of five Sundays, culminating on Christmas Day, 2016. The focus of this series is the First Advent of Messiah and how it is inextricably tied to the literal fulfillment of His Second Advent. Contained therein is much exegesis of lesser known Messianic prophecy.
*Disclaimer Concerning Part 3: The name Shimei was a very popular Hebrew name, being especially common in Levitical circles and at the time of the return from the Babylonian Captivity. Ezra 10 alone mentions three Shimei’s who had taken strange wives and put them away at Ezra’s exhortation in the 7th year of Artaxerxes. The author’s suggestion in this message that the Shimei of Ezra 10:23 was also the brother of Zerubbabel and that he put away his strange wife to take a wife of the daughters of Levi and thereby father Rhesa, the son-in-law of Zerubbabel (cf. Luke 3:27) is possible (especially considering the miracles of age that can be demonstrated elsewhere in the Messianic genealogy), though probably untenable when one considers that Ezra 10 takes place chronologically almost 50 years after the completion of the Second Temple in 516 BC. Notwithstanding, as Shimei was a common Levitical name at the time in question and as this name is connected with both Judah and Levi in the prophecy of Zechariah 12:12, it makes sense that the Tribe of Levi came near to the Messianic line in Zerubbabel’s day (i.e. as it does at the time of Christ) through his much-younger brother Shimei (cf. I Chronicles 3:19) and that this Shimei fathered Rhesa (Luke 3:27) by way of Zerubbabel’s daughter Shelomith (I Chronicles 3:19). The author believes that the Shimei of Zechariah 12:12 is none other than the brother of Zerubbabel (i.e son by blood of Pedaiah yet the legal son of Salathiel via Levirate marriage) and the legal son of Pedaiah, the adopted son of Jeconias descended biologically from the Levites. Whether or not this is the same Shimei mentioned in Ezra 10:23 is ultimately a matter of conjecture. The time of Zerubbabel, Shimei, Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai, Zechariah, et. al. was a very difficult and confusing time in Israel’s history when many strange things happened. Yet the Lord, notwithstanding, preserved the Jewish people and the Messianic bloodline from King David just as He said He would do.
This mini-series of four messages taken from Jesse Boyd's exegetical study on the Book of Revelation analyzes the most important prophecy found in all of Scripture in terms of eschatology and God's plan and purpose for the nation of Israel: Daniel's Seventy Weeks. This prophecy and its precise fulfillment in terms of Messiah's First Advent prove that we can expect all biblical prophecy related to Christ's Second Advent to be fulfilled literally.
These two messages are taken from Jesse Boyd's exegetical study of the Book of Revelation. They analyze one of the most misunderstood doctrines of biblical eschatology. A Pre-tribulational Rapture of the Church is biblical, and here's why:
Jesse Boyd composed this biblical defense of a pre-tributlational rapture while in seminary in 1998. A liberal professor, far from agreeing with the conclusions drawn therein, gave the thesis an A and promulgated that it was one of the best he had ever read.

This brief editorial discusses the subject of leadership from a BIBLICAL perspective. In a day when "churchianity" is falling prey to worldly leadership philosophies and emergent garbage at mach speed, it behooves us to revisit the timeless truths of Holy Scripture.
This essay deals with the relationship that should exist between the Christian and the environment. In these times, when environmentalist whackos spread their godless doom & gloom hysteria about global warming, air pollution, and animal rights, it behooves the Christian to consider his role in caring for God's creation.
