Welcome to the Bill's Bible Basics website! This website is dedicated to presenting thought-provoking, Scripture-based perspectives regarding Bible prophecy and many other topics which are related to the Holy Scriptures and our Christian walk of faith. The Bill's Bible Basics website has been online since September 9, 2014, and is an updated version of the Endtime Prophecy Net website, which first went online in May of 1997. Prior to that time, the website took the form of "The Treasure Trove BBS" -- which later became known as the "Armageddon Christian BBS" -- which began in 1993-1994, and which was a PC-ANSI based Bulletin Board Service. The Bill's Bible Basics ministry was founded by Christian writer and evangelist Bill Kochman, who since 1997 has gone by the online alias/nom de plume of "The WordWeaver". He has been actively involved in Christian outreach of one form or another -- street witnessing, foreign missionary fields, house-to-house ministry, online evangelism -- since 1971.
Through this online ministry, it is my heartfelt desire to not only feed BBB visitors with the sincere milk of God's Word, but also with the meat of God's Word as well. This site is dedicated to the serious student of God's Word who is willing to invest the time in reading lengthy, in-depth articles and series which explore different aspects and doctrines of our faith. Many, many hours and years of hard work and research have gone into writing the commentaries which you will find on this website. If you are in the habit of skimming over material, you will mostly likely miss a lot of important points and information, and may not fully and completely grasp what is being shared in a particular article. If you are only interested in light fare -- such as a lot of cute images, witty Christian sayings and music -- you won't find it here. To reiterate, this site is dedicated to those Christians who possess a serious desire to delve into the deeper things of God's Word and endeavor to understand them.
In the majority of articles and series which are found on this website, I have done my best to magnify the Lord's Words above my own. After all, as King David wrote, the Lord has magnified His Word above His very Name. As Christian writers, we should do the same:
"I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name."
Psalms 138:2, KJV
Wherever possible, I have inserted Scriptures to support my views, so that you the reader can see why I believe and teach the things that I do. In fact, I believe so much in the power of quoting the Scriptures, that it may very well be that, collectively-speaking, perhaps half of the total content of all of my articles combined are solid Scripture. Hopefully, this point alone will give you a good idea of how important I believe it is to make sure that I am leading my readers to the Lord and to His Word, and not just to myself, or to my human understanding of Biblical matters. God's Word is indeed powerful; no human word can compare to it; for as the Apostle Paul wrote:
"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
Hebrews 4:12, KJV
Please note that everything that you read in the articles and series which are available on this website -- aside from the central message of Salvation through faith in the atoning Sacrifice of Jesus Christ -- is subject to change. The reason for this is quite simple. I -- Bill Kochman -- am an imperfect human. I do not understand -- and have never claimed to understand -- everything that is contained in God's Holy Word, the Bible.
Similar to other honest Christians, I recognize that I am in a constant state of spiritual growth. As such, I embrace what I refer to as an "evolving theology". What this means is that as my understanding of God's Word continues to expand, through diligent study of the Scriptures, the doctrines and beliefs which I embrace must adapt to any new truths which the Lord may choose to reveal to me.
As a result, it is quite possible that you may find certain ideas and beliefs expressed in some of my older articles, which differ to some degree -- and perhaps entirely -- from beliefs that are expressed in newer articles. Do not let this confuse you. Simply accept the newer information as my current theological position regarding any given issue. As my time and health permit, I will eventually update all older articles and series, so that they are in harmony with the newer ones, God willing.
To avoid confusion in this regard, all of my articles and series display both a "Published On" date, as well as a "Last Updated" date. This way, you can know when I first authored an article, as well as when I last updated it. Thus, if you come across a situation where I say something in one article, but then seem to be saying something differently in another article regarding the same topic, simply look at the "Last Updated" date of both articles, and accept the information in the newer of the two, as my last publicly stated position regarding that particular issue. Furthermore, throughout this website, I provide links to two separate lists. One list contains all of my new or updated articles, while the other contains the bulk of my articles which have not received an update in a very long time, and which are more likely to contain views which I no longer embrace.
KJV Bible Verse Lists
In addition to my articles and series, I invite you to visit the "King James Version Bible Verse Lists
" page where you will find over 570 KJV topical Bible verse lists which I have personally compiled over the past fourteen plus years. These Bible verse lists in fact represent the very core of everything that I share and teach on this website. They are the foundation of my articles and series.
Christian Poetry Section:
For those of you who may be poetically-inclined, you will also be happy to know that in recent years, I have also become quite the avid poet, having authored 474 12-line mini-poems as of January 15, 2017. These poems are presented in graphic form in my poetry section
, and are accompanied by Bible studies which link to related BBB articles and KJV Bible Verse Lists on this website.
BBB Website History:
For a more in-depth look at the history of this online ministry, you may also want to read the two-part article entitled "The Internet: Our Final Frontier; Your Last Chance?
". It describes how I began this online ministry about twenty-three years ago when I first set up a Hermes II, Macintosh-based BBS, or Bulletin Board Service.
During the early part of 2017, I invested a considerable amount of time and energy in creating an AMP-compliant version of the Bill's Bible Basics website. This version of the website is specifically designed for mobile device users, although it works just as great for desktop computer users as well, of which I happen to be one.
