Is Jesus Currently on David’s Throne?

Michael J. Vlach writes: The purpose of this blog post is to examine Peter’s use of Psalm 132:11 in Acts 2:30 with a view toward grasping Peter’s understanding of the throne of David concept. Acts 2 describes the baptizing and filling ministry of the Holy Spirit after Jesus’ ascension. This is all related to Jesus, […]

(VIDEO) What You Need to Know about the New Jerusalem

Doug Hamp gives a lucid biblical theology of the New Jerusalem: its nature, history, purpose, size, shape, location, and its timing of when it descends to earth, before or after the millennium. (Incidentally, toward the end of the video he puts a plug in for his book against Calvinism, which I would not agree with, […]

Valley of Hinnom

Steve Hays writes: A reader drew my attention to this post: Jesus and Hell Several fallacies in his argument: i) Metaphors originate in a particular concrete phenomena, but acquire an abstract, analogical significance. The significance of the metaphor is not identical to the natural or historical exemplar. It develops a significance that goes beyond the […]

A Teachable Moment Why Pretrib Logic Fails Miserably on the Daniel’s Seventy-Weeks Prophecy

Billy Crone in the video below (starting at 8:00) commits this common logical and biblical error on this issue. Here is the pretrib logic: Pretribs reason that since the Seventy-Weeks prophecy in Daniel  9:24–27 was given to Israel, the Church cannot “exist” on earth during any of its fulfillment. Here is why this common pretrib argument fails: […]

The LORD has made a promise to Israel

“The LORD has made a promise to Israel. He promises it as the one who fixed the sun to give light by day and the moon and stars to give light by night. He promises it as the one who stirs up the sea so that its waves roll. He promises it as the one […]

6 Reasons Why Michael Is the Restrainer

  1. Contemporary Jewish literature during Paul’s time viewed the characteristics of Michael having eschatological pre-eminence as the chief opponent of Satan and Restrainer of God’s people. 2. Michael is viewed as a celestial restrainer of God’s people in Daniel 10–12, the passage serving as the source for Paul’s exposition in 2 Thessalonians 2:3–8. 3. […]

Mike Vlach on the Continuity of Dispensationalism

Michael Vlach has written an excellent outline of the continuity of the Old Testament in the New Testament within Dispensational theology. It is worth the read. There is nothing here that I would disagree with him on in this particular article. I would add, however, that Vlach comes from a modified classical view of dispensationalism, […]

A Reply to Pretrib Pastor Andy Woods Claiming Prewrath Contradicts Itself If “the great tribulation is the greatest time of trouble that the world has ever known” – Ep. 69

http://traffic.libsyn.com/thebiblicalprophecyprogram/A_Reply_to_Andy_Woods_on_a_contradiction.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedI replied to Andy Woods who thinks the prewrath position contradicts itself. He thinks prewrath believes the great tribulation will be the worse time ever for the world. And yet the Day of the Lord’s wrath with its trumpet and bowl judgments should be worse. He cited […]

Video: Reggie Kelly on Premillennialism, Nature and Purpose of the Millennium, and Prophecies Concerning the City of Jerusalem

I would take issue with one thing he said at the very end of this video. As many posttribulationists think, he unfortunately fails to recognize the biblical distinction between the Antichrist’s great tribulation and the day of the Lord’s wrath. Other than that I appreciate everything else he said.  

VIDEO: Discovery of an Ancient Seven-Sealed Scroll | Book of Revelation

I talked about a discovery of a seven-sealed (“bullae”) scroll in Israel at Wadi ed-Daliyeh that was still intact when it was found. I discussed the function of the scroll and its seals in the book of Revelation and what their relationship is with the trumpets and bowl judgments. You can see the images of […]

Audio Available! Future Israel, Future Millennium – Bible Prophecy Conference

The conference this weekend was such as blessing. God was glorified in the proclamation of his promise of  faithfulness to Israel in their future salvation and their future land. God is not a promise-breaker as supersessionism (a.k.a replacement theology) essentially teaches. God’s gifts and calling are irrevocable. Be sure to purchase the conference audio to […]
