NIMROD: MORE THAN HISTORY’S FIRST ENCOUNTER WITH THE ANTICHRIST

No doubt, one of the most intriguing characters in the Old Testament is Nimrod, son of Cush, and grandson of Ham. His name often comes up as the archetype of the Antichrist. It turns out that when we dig into the story surrounding Nimrod, there is much more we can say about his importance than just speculating he is the figure who appears again in “the last days” as the Antichrist (“who was, is not, but will be again,” Revelation 17:8).  The following post is drawn from REBOOTING THE BIBLE, PART 2, Chapter 4.

CONTINENTAL DRIFT, NO! YES! TO DRAMATIC RISE IN SEA LEVELS. GENESIS 10 AND THE DIVISION OF NATIONS

WHAT CAUSED THE DIVISION OF NATIONS?  LAST WEEK, MANY SCOFFERS COMMENTED ON MY FACEBOOK BLOG THAT THE THEORY SOME CREATIONISTS HOLD ABOUT CONTINENTAL DRIFT BEING THE CAUSE FOR THE DIVISION OF NATIONS SPOKEN OF IN GENESIS 11 IS SHEAR LUNACY. WELL, OKAY.

BUT I RESPECT THOSE WHO HOLD TO THIS POSITION, BUT IT ISN’T WHAT I BELIEVE, CONTRARY TO WHAT THOSE RUDE READERS IMPLIED BY THEIR SLAMS AND INSULTS (OF COURSE, SELDOM DO FB RESPONDENTS READ AN ARTICLE THEY DERIDE — DRIVE BY TROLLS I CALL THEM).  WOW!  HATE IS ALIVE AND WELL ON PLANET EARTH.

MY POSITION? POST-FLOOD, … Read More

What Really Happened When the World Was Divided 530 Years After the Great Flood?

The following article is taken from Chapter 3 of Rebooting the Bible, Part 2. The division of the nations (or the world) was the first major event that occurred consecutively after the Tower of Babel.  The question is did it happen at the same time?  Or did it happen about 300 years after the Babel rebellion?  This event, the division of the World at the time of Peleg, is the first event we take up in Rebooting the Bible, Part 2, that is dramatically changed if the chronology of the Septuagint is correct.

THE FORESHADOWING OF PART 2 IN PART 1

In this article drawn from the first book in a two part series, I provide an overview of what is discussed in PART 2 of Rebooting the Bible.  This introduction was provided in PART 1.
