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.

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.
