Apple iPhone’s Finger and Facial Recognition Technology

“He also caused everyone (small and great, rich and poor, free and slave) to obtain a mark on their right hand [χειρὸς] or on their forehead [μέτωπον]” (Revelation 13:16 NET) Why will the Antichrist use both the hand and the forehead for his evil-intentioned use in his mark and image system? At this time the […]

Facial Recognition Tech for the Beast?

Chinese police have used facial recognition technology to catch criminals at a beer festival… In March a government oversight committee in the US heard that approximately half of adult Americans’ photographs are stored in facial recognition databases that can be accessed by the FBI, without their knowledge or consent, in the hunt for suspected criminals.

Greek Grammar Indicates the ‘Beast’ in the Book of Revelation Is a PERSON

There are many good reasons to think that the “beast” in the book of Revelation refers to a person and not a mere symbol (contra idealism and historicism). One of these reasons is found in how Greek grammar works. In Greek, a relative pronoun will agree with its antecedent in gender and number. But its […]

The Greek Noun Apostasia Never Means a ‘Physical-Spatial Departure,’ e.g. the Rapture in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 (Part 2) – Ep. 85

http://traffic.libsyn.com/thebiblicalprophecyprogram/The_Greek_Noun_Apostasia_Never_Means_a__Physical-Spatial_Departure_Part_2.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedWe talked about lexical specifics showing that there is no evidence in Koine Greek literature where the Greek noun apostasia means a “physical or spatial departure.” There are some pretrib teachers who think apostasia in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 refers to “the rapture.”  They assume that apostasia can […]

Reply to H. Wayne House on the Claim that APOSTASIA Can Mean ‘Spatial Departure’

I finally got him to admit in our cross-examination that he was incapable of producing a single document in all of Koine literature where apostasia means a “spatial departure.” (See the video […]

VIDEO: Preterism, the Antichrist, and the Early Church Fathers

On Antichrist’s Persecution of the Church: Epistle of Barnabas, Shepherd of Hermas, Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Hippolytus, Cyprian – Ep. 71 In this episode I read the primary literature of quotes from seven early church fathers who explicitly taught that that the Church would suffer at the hands of the Antichrist before Jesus returns: On […]

Does Prewrath ‘Diminish’ Hope for Jesus’ Coming?

One of the stock objections to prewrath from pretribbers is that placing intervening events before the rapture “diminishes” eagerness and hope for Jesus’ return. This objection is easily refuted. I have responded to this objection in my book Antichrist Before the Day of the Lord: What Every Christian Needs to Know about the Return of […]

An Ominous Remark from Hitler (or Satan) about the Coming Antichrist?

A few years back I posted about the alleged last words of Hitler that seem to ominously warn about the coming Antichrist. This post has had a lot of hits over the years, so I am posting it here again so you can see my remarks on it: “For the Coming Man” – Hitler’s Last […]
