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.…

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…

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…

SCRIPTURE TEACHES THE RAPTURE AND THE VISIBLE SECOND COMING ARE DISTINCT EVENTS – HERE IS THE EVIDENCE

The most contentious debate among evangelicals is not hard to identify.  It consists of whether or not the occurrence of the Rapture of the Church stands as a distinct event from the visible Second Coming of Christ, sometimes referred to as “The Glorious Appearing.” Indeed, even in the verse where the phrase “the glorious appearing”…

THE HOTTEST TOPIC IN ESCHATOLOGY TODAY: THE REVELATION 12 SIGN & SEPTEMBER 23, 2017

THERE IS A GREAT EXPECTATION THAT THE RAPTURE MAY BE ONLY WEEKS AWAY.  WHY? It is an inevitable aspect of futurist eschatology that students of the topic seek to know the time of the return of Christ.  They do not really regard the doctrine of imminence as “binding” to whether we can or cannot assert…

THE THEOLOGICAL BASIS FOR WHY ISRAEL SHOULD MATTER TO CHRISTIANS

Anti-Semitism Arises Once Again – What is the Biblical Basis to Oppose it? It’s quite unusual to find a Christian author or teacher that favors Israel who isn’t also a dispensationalist.  And it is difficult to find a dispensationalist who isn’t also a Christian Zionist.  Nevertheless, in Gerald McDermott, we have an Anglican theologian, Israel…

AFTER THE RAPTURE: DOES THE CHURCH STILL HAVE A MISSION ON THE EARTH?

By Gary L. Huffman and S. Douglas Woodward The Manifestation of God’s Glory in the Church During the Tribulation Although not explicitly stated in Scripture, the Feast of Tabernacles constitutes a feast of glory. Thus, the fulfillment of the Feast of Tabernacles would be the period when God’s glory manifests. And we recall that at…

THE SEPTEMBER 23 SIGN IN THE HEAVENS – WILL THE RAPTURE HAPPEN THEN?

Considerable speculation exists that Revelation 12:1-2 prophesies a unique and significant sign that will appear on the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah (aka The Feast of Trumpets), this Fall.  To be precise, the event transpires on September 23, 2017.  Many speculate that because this arrangement of constellations and “wandering stars” (i.e., the constellation Virgo, the…
