False Teachers and Prophets, Part 3

But before I get into anymore examples of people alive today and who might be guilty of teaching heresy, I’d like to go back to someone who many continue to revere as a great man, a wonderful preacher and a fantastic Bible expositor and evangelist. This one man has done quite a bit of damage and it was during the 1800’s that he lived. The problem is that people during my lifetime, some of whom are still alive, lionize that man, in spite of the fact that his theology was literally perverse and his methods of soul-winning were not based in Scripture, but on humanistic philosophy. This particular person was pivotal in modern church history, unfortunately.

False Teachers and Prophets, Part 2

Now, it is important to understand what the Bible says about dealing with people who teach false doctrines. Should we be friends with them? Can we fellowship with them? Should they be warned and then avoided? Should we always pray for them?

Lawlessness: the Vehicle Ushering in Final Empire

As lawlessness increases, we know that things are building to a new order, the final empire. The goal of lawlessness is not simply to be lawless. The goal is to overturn and overrule. It puts so much internal pressure on the current system that something has to give. That something is usually the system itself, which is replaced with something else.

Social Distancing Measures are Here to Stay

What we are seeing is pure Hegelian Dialectic. The government wanted a specific direction so they created a problem (shutting down society based on a health risk), people clamor for a solution so government said, “Okay” and start reopening society with many restrictive measures in place and the only way they’ll possibly be rolled back is by receiving the coming vaccine. Because there is some relief, the average person breathes a sigh of relief believing that things are going back to normal. Instead, a new normal is created and people eventually get used to it.

Is It This or That?

The Jews could not grasp what Jesus said. In Matthew 24, He used the word “this” to reference a generation and it seems clear enough (though there is plenty of disagreement), that He ultimately was referring to the generation that would be alive during the coming Tribulation, which would end as He returned. However, there is also a near/far view because things certainly started with the generation living at the time of Jesus, didn’t it?

Should Christians Fear God?

Christians who do not have a very healthy, reverential fear of God do not understand who God is and the power that He wields. He brought this world into Creation out of nothing (ex nihilo). Everything that we see, we enjoy, we benefit from, God made. He did so for His own glory, not ours.

We must put ourselves in our proper place and understand things from God’s perspective. He made us for Himself. God has every right to expect people – especially Christians – to live for Him, to bring glory to Him. Think of how many people go through this life never recognizing God and their actual purpose for being here? It’s scary to consider. How often are we Christians guilty of adopting a laissez-faire attitude where God is concerned? Paul would warn us that this ought not to be.

Donald Trump, the Bible, and the End Times, Pt 1

But for me, there was actually a much larger issue at hand. I could not wrap my brain around the fact that if Trump was legitimate and actually wanted to bring America back under the rule of law as outlined in the United States Constitution, how could this possibly happen if the Bible says this world will ultimately become one in a form of a new world order, or one-world government that would be eventually headed up by the Antichrist? I admit I couldn’t see how it all fit together.

Wait! World Will End October 21st!

Seems pretty straightforward to me. Notice Jesus uses the phrase “times or seasons.” With those three words, He is covering all the bases. By using the word “times,” Jesus is saying “It is not for you to know months, days, hours, or minutes” and by using the word “seasons” He is saying that no one will know specifically which part of the year things will happen related to His coming Kingdom. It is so clear, it’s almost painful, yet this has not stopped people from bending themselves over backwards or into the shape of a pretzel to try to figure it out.

Revelation 12: What is It Really About?

Revelation 12 says nothing about the timing of the Rapture or start of the Tribulation. It is not even addressing Christians at all in nearly the entire chapter. It is about Israel and it is the best, most concise summary of Israel’s history anywhere in God’s Word. Notice we did not need to go outside of the Bible into the area of constellations and horoscopes to ascertain the meaning of Revelation 12:1-6. This is not to say that we can never look outside the Bible to help us better understand the Bible. In this case however, it is very clear that the true meaning of the text is clarified in other portions of God’s Word.
