- Those Who Pierced Him
Revelation 1:7 is not a prophesy of a global witnessing of and mourning over Christ’s return!
- Jerusalem Repossessed:
A lesson in Demonology? No, Matthew 12:43-45 is another prophesy of the destruction of Jerusalem.
- Father Forgive Them, and may Thy Burning Anger Overtake Them
Not just a lesson on forgiveness, but a call for Judgement.
- Do Angels Ask Stupid Questions?
Were the angels really talking about Jesus’ return at His ascension?
- Is the Bible written to us?
Keeping the Scriptures in their context.
- Has the Gospel Been Preached to the Whole World?
One of the signs of the coming of the end of the age (according to Jesus) already fulfilled (according to Paul)!
- Use the Fork, Jesus:
Judgement is not for our future, but was imminent when John the Baptist introduced Jesus!
- Getting Caught Up in the Rapture!
Not a physical lifting in the sky, but an image of imminent resurrection!
- At Hand:
James said the coming of the Lord was at hand. What did he mean?
- Knock! Knock!
A brief look at James 5:9, “The judge is standing right at the door.”
- One day = a thousand years?
Not according to the Bible. Just an excuse to make “soon” = “some time”
The Jews read scripture differently from modern Christians.
- It’s Elementary!
2 Peter 3 is not about global cataclysm, but follows the theme of the rest of the Bible.
- Babylon = Jerusalem:
One reason why Revelation was a soon-to-be-fulfilled prophesy.
- Another Look at the Resurrection
1 Corinthians 15 tells us about our New Covenant immortality.
- Great Expectations
A straightforward reading of Scripture shows that Jesus and the apostles were expecting something SOON!
- All Things New
The New Heavens and Earth and he New Jerusalem are all about the New Covenant!
- Hey Jude!
Jude’s letter was not about our future.
- Promises, Promises: Leaving the Wilderness.
The New Testament disciples lived in a period of transition from old to new. It was the end of this they were looking forward to.
- The Prophet Motive:
The ones who killed the prophets (Revelation 16, 18) were specifically targeted by God in His vengeance.
- Seeing the Light of Day:
The Christians of the Bible were living in the night, awaiting the dawn of Jesus’ appearance. This was to be imminent in its arrival.
Old Testament prophet’s perspective – Salvation and judgement occurred at the one time, heralded by John the baptist.
- Moving Mountains and Not Giving a Fig!
Rather than a lesson on faith, Jesus was predicting the fall of Jerusalem.
- The New Jerusalem:
No Pearly Gates in Heaven? New Jerusalem is right here!
- When the Perfect Comes:
Either we should be experiencing all the gifts, or Jesus has returned in power.
- Some of Those Standing Here
However you want to play with the word ‘generation’, Matthew 16:28 shows just when Jesus would return.
- Transfiguration or Parousia?
A response to someone who believes that Matthew 16:28 refers to the Transfiguration.
- Hymenaeus & Philetus?
A response to someone who believes that preterists are guilty of this same heresy!
