THE MANY CIPHERS LOCATING MYSTERY, BABYLON (PT. 1)

It’s one of the hottest topics in Bible prophecy today.  Where is Mystery Babylon?  What if nobody has it right?  Has the cipher ever been broken?


 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, “Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great w***e that sitteth upon many waters.

So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.Read More

WHY REVELATION’S SEVEN HILLS IDENTIFY MORE THAN ROME

Revelation 17:9, “And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.”

When Describing the Harlot and the Beast, the Context is Always Symbolic

The first reaction of most prophecy pundits is that the seven mountains upon which the woman sitteth are the seven hills of Rome. There are, however, quite a number of problems with this common interpretation, the first of which is that the passage self-interprets its meaning to be something other than the city of Rome:

“And they are seven kings: the five are fallen, the one is, … Read More

PROOF FOR THE SEPTUAGINT’S SUPREMACY – Video

My new book, REBOOTING THE BIBLE, was a quest of research spurred by the work of a genius Aussie polymath, Barry Setterfield.  This new 30-minute video by Setterfield provides a graphic presentation supporting several of my key tenets. It’s a powerful piece.


I am very pleased to share this video by Barry Setterfield.  He surfaces numerous salient points that demonstrate how the Masoretic text was corrupted in numerous ways by ‘founding’ rabbis ca.100 AD.

What difference does this make?  Our modern Bibles are based, primarily, on the Masoretic text.  And yet, there are a large number of believers in biblical … Read More

THE GREAT CITY BABYLON DIVIDED INTO THREE PARTS

THE GREAT CITY BABYLON. WHY IS IT DIVIDED INTO THREE PARTS?

So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. (Revelation 17:3)

And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. (Revelation 16:19)

ARE YOU A FUNDAMENTALIST OR AN EVANGELICAL?

WHY ARE SOME CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS OPEN-MINDED WHILE OTHERS AREN’T?

How easily are you threatened by another person of faith in Christ who believes something different than you do?  For instance, “How old is the earth?”


 

The two terms, evangelical and fundamentalist, mean different things to different people.  There is considerable history going back 200-400 years in the reformation or Protestant movement. What I’ve learned in my experience is that I find it easy to get along more with evangelicals than with fundamentalists.  However, there remain many doctrines I still believe that place me in the fundamentalist camp.  But not … Read More
