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 through faith as his Savior 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 the major conclusions here are biblical, doctrinally sound and conform
to Christ, the Gospel and the Word of God. Examine the Scriptures 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:
1. Preach Jesus Christ and Him crucified
2. Pursue a deeper understanding of the Word of God
3. Help build up the Church in sound doctrine and practice
4. Express the Spiritual gift that the Lord has graciously given me
5. Challenge any doctrine that cannot be clearly supported by Scripture
6. Help prepare the way of the Lord for His coming on the clouds of heaven
7. 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 Second Coming doctrine clearly stated in Scripture)
Support of the Jews and Israel (All Biblical prophecies about the restoration and
redemption of the nation of Israel will be fulfilled)
Popular teachings rejected as unbiblical and harmful:
Philosophy and Religion (any belief that denies truth and salvation in none but Jesus
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 (extra-Biblical prophecy, revelation, authority or anointing
as from God)
Darbyism (Pre-Tribulation invisible return and rapture, Dispensationalism, seven
Sects and Cults (only true Church heresy, legalism, authoritarian, extra-Biblical,
Requirement for Salvation
The single requirement for salvation is faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son
of God and Savior who was crucified for our sins and raised from the dead, which
immediately results in 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 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 another 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 the context of the whole of Scripture. Miraculous
or extraordinary descriptions are understood as symbolic only when it is clear they
cannot be anything else, otherwise they must be taken in their most literal sense.
The deeper prophetic meanings of historic Biblical events must be understood in agreement
with the history, covenants, doctrines and explicit prophecies of the whole of Scripture.
Revelation 22:18-19 ended all prophecy 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 the Bible.
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 Biblical
Evangelicalism 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
