PRETERISM VS. FUTURISM… WHO GETS ESCHATOLOGY RIGHT?

Noted author, screenwriter, and speaker, Brian Godawa appeared with me today on the Parker J. Cole’s show “Parker’s Comparables”.  We discussed and debated which understanding of eschatology Best fits the prophetic assertions of the Bible. It was a fast 120 minutes exploring the Olivet Discourse, Matthew 24, Jesus’ predictions for what would happen within a generation of his pronouncements and, from my point of view, beyond.


Today was Parker’s birthday and she indicated that our coming together to discuss the topic was our gift to her.  Of course, Brian and I may benefit most by becoming acquainted and by learning … Read More

A MINUTE TO MIDNIGHT – A DISCUSSION ON LIFE AFTER DEATH

Are you curious about what our life might be life after we die?  Do you believe we will have eternal life in the presence of God and the ones we love?  Why do we want to live forever?  Gary Huffman and I address these issues and many more in the book, THE REVEALING.

BEING MADE “PERFECT” JUST LIKE JESUS, THE CAPTAIN OF OUR FAITH

CHANGED INTO THE SAME IMAGE FROM GLORY TO GLORY

In the Letter to the Hebrews, Paul lets us in on a secret. Somehow through the incarnation, Jesus Christ was “made perfect” through sufferings.  This occurred despite the fact that all things were made by God for Him, and He Himself (the Logos) made all things. Through the process of the incarnation—the experience of becoming human and living His life in a body like ours[1]—He was enabled to be the ‘first-born’ of many brethren, “bringing many sons unto glory.”  Paul refers to Jesus as “the captain of our salvation: Read More

ANOTHER GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT? THAT’S WHAT OLD-SCHOOL ESCHATOLOGY TEACHERS SAY

WILL TRADITIONAL BIBLE PROPHECY TEACHERS BE LIKE THE RELIGIOUS SCHOLARS OF JESUS’ DAY, AND MISREAD THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES?

As any studied student of the history of eschatology knows, “The Great Disappointment” of William Miller in 1843 cautions us to NOT make bold predictions of the timing of Christ’s return. Miller’s following did the classic behavior of “selling everything and heading to the mountaintop to wait for His return.” The underlying motivation was to demonstrate a complete commitment to Christ’s Kingdom and to fully prepare for His return.

However, the followers of Miller would ultimately overcome the great disappointment. … Read More

THE MALE CHILD OF REVELATION 12 IS THE CHURCH — TIME TO FILL YOUR LAMP

The argument that many are engaged in at the current time is whether or not the “male child” of Revelation 12:5, is Christ or the Church?  The answer, the right answer, from powerful scholars throughout the ages is simply this:  He is both. And the implications are astronomical!

THE RAPTURE AND THE GLORIOUS APPEARING ARE DISTINCT EVENTS

Because the male child is both, as Gary Huffman and I argue in THE REVEALING: UNLOCKING HIDDEN TRUTHS ON THE GLORIFICATION OF GOD’S CHILDREN, the “great sign” of Revelation 12 proclaims there is a rapture of the Church, and it happens at least … Read More
