21ST CENTURY EVENTS: HOW THEY’VE TRANSFORMED BIBLICAL PROPHECY INTERPRETATION

The conventional scenario of how prophetic events from the Bible will play out has changed. During the first two decades of the Twenty-first Century, dramatic developments have shaken the usual interpretation of what will happen as Bible prophecy is fulfilled.  Just like the Great London Fire of 1666 (pictured above) which caused panic and apocalyptic fervor, people around the world have been shaken by unprecedented happenings: the global pandemic, the crashing of the world economy, the new threat of nuclear war between the superpowers, and continued unrest in the Middle East which could trigger such a war.

DOES THE CHURCH REPLACE ISRAEL? SHOULD CHRISTIANS BE ZIONISTS? A NEW EPISODE OF THE HOT SEAT

And the second question vitally related to this, “Are the Ten Northern Tribes of Israel Still ‘Lost’?” The program for March 11 addresses this topic and the relationship between the Church and Israel.  Is it going to be dry?  I assure you it is more than lively, given the high energy of Douglas Krieger, the interviewee I put on The Hot Seat for 110 minutes!  Not to mention the fact that many evangelicals have grown to challenge those who call themselves “Christian Zionists.”  So, should Christians be Zionists?  Is the nation of Israel a sign of the last days?

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

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 scholar, and author who is not dispensational, but who advocates for Jews everywhere, especially those living in the present state of Israel.  McDermott has written extensively on the subject of why Israel should be valued by Christians rather than repudiated for their historical rejection of … Read More

IS THE TIMING OF THE RAPTURE MADE CLEAR IN 2 THESSALONIANS?

IS THE TIMING OF THE RAPTURE MADE CLEAR IN 2 THESSALONIANS?

There has been a lot of discussion on the second interview I did with Dr. Doug Stauffer on the Prophecy in the News TV program posted on the PITN site, April 22, 2016.

I posted the following words (well, most of this) on two Facebook pages in response to some heated feedback on Doug Stauffer’s teaching on the rapture and related topics as covered on the program.
