Theological Problems for Those Who Fail to Grasp Scripture

Folks, as I have said numerous times. It does not matter to me WHEN the Rapture happens. In fact, I might die before it ever occurs. What concerns me is the salvation of those who walk through this life and who do not know Jesus. Our friend has a blog and it appears his entire motivation for that blog has nothing to do with witnessing or evangelizing the lost. His entire blog (as far as I can tell) is to discount the PreTrib Rapture. That’s it. That’s his apparent mission in life, which tells me that he is being disobedient to the Great Commission at the very least.

What is the Coming Tribulation All About, Part 19

n both cases – the passage from Revelation and the one from Mark, Jesus notes that the people of the house (of Israel) do not know when the master will return and because of that, they should stay awake and prepared. There are many today – mostly in the Preterists and Reformed/Covenant camps who believe that Jesus already returned spiritually in AD 70 when God judged the nation of Israel by causing Roman armies to destroy Jerusalem and the Temple. The problem with this interpretation is that it is simply not Scriptural. Jesus said when He returns, every eye would see Him (Matthew 24), and in Acts 1, the disciples are told (after Jesus is taken up to the clouds physically) that this Jesus would return the very same way, meaning in the clouds and physically.

What is the Coming Tribulation All About, Part 18

This is why books like Revelation are confusing to people. Many do not see the connections from Revelation to Daniel, Ezekiel, or other books of the Bible. We fail to understand that God wrote the entire Bible using roughly 40 human authors over a period of roughly 1,600 to 2,000 years to do it. Yet, it was God who oversaw its writings. It is best to see God’s Word in those terms because it allows us to avoid a great many mistakes.

Point of Clarification Regarding the Rapture and Tribulation

The one thing I think all of us Christians lack (and that includes me) is a more prominent display of authentic humility (to God) in our lives. No one living today is Jesus Christ even though there are at least five people alive right now who claim to be Him. No one has His understanding. No one has His wisdom. No one has His sinless nature. We must endeavor to adopt a true spirit of humility (that only God can provide) so that disagreements over doctrine do not become points of contention and knock-down, drag-outs.

Our God and Savior Christ Jesus Overcomes Sin in and Through Us

Jesus Christ IS God. He provided Himself as a substitutionary atonement for us. In doing so, He provided salvation and when we receive His salvation, He indwells us via the Holy Spirit and we become “partakers of the divine” as Peter tells us in 2 Peter 1:4. We ourselves are not gods, but through His divine power, we can overcome sin, unrighteousness, and ungodliness.

What is the Coming Tribulation All About? Part 8

We know all too well that God has rained fire (and sometimes brimstone) down from heaven. In fact, a clay tablet that was literally unreadable for over 150 years after its discovery became readable after scientists discovered the key to understanding it. It points to a date “shortly before dawn on June 29 in the year 3123 B.C.”

What is the Coming Tribulation All About? Part 3

I fully believe that this coming seven-year period is a time when God will pour out His wrath onto this world. I explained this in Part 1. As another proof of this, please note that Revelation 5 depicts a scene in heaven where a seven-sealed scroll is introduced. This scroll appears to be something special and at first, it looks like no one is found worthy to open it. John the apostle, who witnesses this scene, breaks down into tears because all seemed hopeless.
