Apparently, Jesus Was Supposed to Return October 17, 2016

Apparently, Dewey Bruton is an individual who has become rather well-known in the end times arena. Who knew? He has a very specific articulated timeline for Daniel as it relates to the end times. I completely disagree with it as do many others, but that doesn’t really matter because Bruton has a large following of people who latch onto every word he has taught. Here’s just one example of the reception Bruton’s teachings have received.

Moving Toward Peace and Safety Ultimately Means Destruction, Part 3

I believe the Antichrist will step up following Gog’s failed attempt to attack and conquer Israel (Jerusalem) because it will be a time when Israel will unfortunately see itself as vulnerable to world powers. Antichrist however, realizing that God gave them the victory, will rush into take advantage of their doubts. In essence, the world will be in shock and just how supernaturally Gog and his troops were defeated. It is clear from Ezekiel 38-39 that Israel does not lift a finger to help itself. The world will be stunned, but Antichrist will take full advantage of the situation. Instead of cowering because of God’s great victory, Antichrist will rush in and seemingly come alongside Israel, helping them believe that he (Antichrist) is the guy who can make sure that no one even tries to attack Israel for the next seven years (cf. Daniel 9:27). Unfortunately, Israel’s leaders will gladly agree to this, proving to God that they have no faith in Him.

Perfect Timing! PreTrib Rapture Naysayer Proves His Own Alarming Myopia!

In one swell swoop, they combine two errors into one and believe they are correct. Is it any wonder they are so judgmental toward people who don’t believe as they do? They believe they and they alone have the truth. People who don’t see eye to eye with them on the return of Jesus, the Rapture, etc., can and do lose any salvation they may have had. They do not believe in eternal security and while this is not common for all PostTribbers, it seems to be an ever-present issue for many.

Because they believe they and they alone are correct, they have established this arrogance in that they believe they are obligated to castigate, denigrate, and condemn anyone who doesn’t agree with them. The PreTribber (like myself) is considered to be the most egregious individual of all because they believe I am fully deceived, unsaved, and deceiving those who are either saved (but in danger of losing their salvation) or on their way to possibly being saved and I’m (according to PostTribbers) are driving them off the path.

Between the 69th and 70th SEVENS

That there is a “gap” of indeterminate amount of time between the 69th “week” and the 70th “week” is a problem for many. The folks who ignore or reject this idea do so because they think that people like me have simply and arbitrarily put an artificial “gap” between those “weeks” because we felt like, because that’s how we make things work. Not so. In fact, not even close.

Daniel 9 and the 70 Weeks, Pt. 1

All of Daniel makes for interesting reading, but in some says, the 9th chapter of Daniel stands alone because Daniel 9 is essentially the only place in all of Scripture where the topic of the 70 weeks are introduced and discussed. As one can imagine, because the contents of Daniel 9 deals with Eschatology (the study of end times/last days), there are many books and articles that have been written on the subject, from a variety of viewpoints. Much of it evolves around the question of whether or not a “gap” of time actually exists between the 69th and 70th weeks.
