This website and its articles are authored personally by Daniel Speck. They are not
presented on behalf of any particular church, ministry, or group nor are the teachings
of any particular organization reflected in these articles. Daniel received Jesus
Christ and was born again in 1970. These articles may not be error free, and they
may be subject to small corrections from time to time, but I believe that the major
conclusions here are fundamentally sound and conform to the Word of God. Examine
the Scriptures for yourself and see if these things are so. Any sincere comments
and criticisms, as well as typo or factual corrections, are welcome.
The purpose of this publication is to:
Preach Jesus Christ and Him crucified
Help build up the Church in sound doctrine and practice
Express the Spiritual gift that the Lord has graciously given me
Challenge any dogma that cannot be clearly supported by Scripture
Help prepare the way of the Lord for His coming on the clouds of heaven
Help warn and prepare the elect for the test that is coming upon the whole world
Where I stand on basic beliefs:
Christ Centered (The Lord Jesus Christ is the message, goal and power of the Faith)
The absolute truth, accuracy, and authority of the Holy Scriptures
Evangelical (faith alone in Christ alone for salvation and righteousness)
Jesus Christ and Him crucified (the only true Gospel to be preached to the unsaved)
The New Birth (baptism of the Holy Spirit at the moment of conversion)
Eternal Security (irrevocably saved and eternally sealed)
Pre-Millennial (a Messianic age of a thousand years soon to come)
7th Trumpet Rapture (only Rapture and Appearing doctrine clearly taught in the Scriptures)
Support of the Jews and the state of Israel (All Biblical prophecies about the restoration
and redemption of the nation of Israel will be fulfilled)
Popular teachings rejected as erroneous and harmful:
Liberalism (denying the Scriptures are literally true, moral relativism, Darwinism,
Preterism (Revelation has been fulfilled, Replacement Theology, no Rapture or Millennium)
Legalism (denying faith alone can save, salvation can be lost, righteousness through
Prophetic/Apostolic (special authority, revelation or conduit of God speaking extra-Biblically)
Darbyism (invisible Pre-Tribulation Return and Rapture, extra-Biblical, hyper-Dispensational)
Sects and Cults (only true Church heresy, legalism, autocratic, para-Biblical, false
Requirement for Salvation
The single requirement for salvation is faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God and
Savior who was crucified for our sins and raised from the dead; producing at that
moment a new birth through the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Absolutely nothing we
can ever do or not do can further or hinder the eternal life, imputed righteousness
and assurance of salvation we received as a free gift at that moment of simple faith
in Jesus. There is only one Gospel: Salvation by grace through faith in the Lord
Jesus Christ, and anyone who preaches a different gospel is accursed.
Authority, Doctrine, and Teaching
All teachings of doctrine, practice, and prophecy are to come exclusively from the
written Word of God. No system of theology or church dogma, however popular or consummate,
should be used as a filter through which the written Word of God is understood and
Correct understanding of the Holy Scriptures (exegesis) must be by a literal interpretation
of the text, understood within each book’s context, as well as the context of the
entirely of Scripture; along with the proper use of parables and prophetic types.
Miraculous and prophetic descriptions are understood as symbolic only when the context
makes it clear that they cannot be otherwise.
Revelation 22:18-19 ends all apocalyptic prophesying and condemns anyone who attempts
to add to or take away from the prophecies, teachings, doctrines and revelations
in the written Word of God.
All modern claimants to any office of prophet, apostle, authority or to any special
revelation, anointing, exclusive teachings, or secret knowledge are soundly rejected
as unbiblical and heretical.
The counsel of the Holy Spirit and His Spiritual gifts are acknowledged and indeed
necessary to arrive at an accurate understanding of the prophetic Word. You must
be born-again to understand prophecy.
The scholarship and contributions to sound doctrine defense and prophetic discernment
of the many gifted saints down through the centuries are gratefully acknowledged.
No disagreement with any ministry on a specific teaching should automatically be
considered a condemnation of that ministry, unless the fundamental doctrines of the
Evangelical Faith are denied.
I welcome the fellowship of all born-again believers in the Lord Jesus Christ who
make up the Church throughout the world and wish to be remembered in your prayers.
“To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory
and dominion forever and ever.” Revelation 5:13
