About The Organization
Discerning the Times is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, and an affiliate member in good standing with Logos Global Network. Discerning the Times is also the name of our online program where Dr. Mikel Cary shares teaching and insight into Bible Prophecy, and how these ancient truths and revealed mysteries impact our lives today.
What We Believe
We believe in the Divine inspiration of the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments; the Trinity of the Godhead; the creation of man by the direct act of God; the fall of man and his need for redemption; the Deity, Incarnation, and Virgin Birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; His vicarious atonement for the sins of mankind by the shedding of His blood on the Cross; the Resurrection of His body from the tomb; His ascension into heaven; His personal, imminent, and pre-millennial return; justification of the believer by grace through faith; the ministry of the Holy Spirit; a literal devil who is our adversary; a literal heaven for the redeemed and a literal hell for the lost; the infallible rule of interpretation for Scripture to be Scripture itself; and the requirement of implicit obedience to the expressed commands of Christ as the standard by which He will judge our love for Him.
What We Value
Everything that we do, stems from the premise that the only solution for this broken and hurting world is Jesus Christ - and the very heart of this ministry can be found in our desire to truly know God and be led by His Spirit. We believe that the Word of God is eternal, powerful, and relevant to every aspect of our lives, and we refuse to sacrifice the integrity of the Bible in order to appear culturally relevant. We believe in the goodness and mercy of God. We value the Kingdom of God, and it's our desire to be used by God to reach the lost, heal the broken, AND equip the body of Christ to understand what the Bible says about the times that we are living in, and the things that are to come.
To spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 15:3,4), the message of His soon return (Titus 2:13), and the truth of the Bible (II Timothy 3:16) to all peoples in all nations (Acts 1:8) using all available resources to bring Him honor and glory (Colossians 1:18). Proverbs 3:6: In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.
This dispensation of grace that we are living in – is a window in time – where God in His mercy and goodness is calling out to the whole world, and we are admonished not to waste a single moment of it. That’s why we have to take account of our days, and recognize, the moral and spiritual significance of how God has called us to live. - Dr. Mikel Cary
