All Those Rules and Regulations Speaks to Depravity

We arrive to today realizing that people are simply perverse and stupid. Often animals act more like humans than other humans. That is a sad commentary on society but in many ways it’s true. Why? Because people have set God’s rule aside and adopted their own values based on emotional virtue and political correctness. People today have little problem sleeping around and doing the very things that God warned the Israelites not to do.

Zechariah’s Near and Far Visions, Pt 1

In the Bible, a “horn” is normally understood to mean “power,” whether from an individual, a group of people, or an empire. Commentators of course disagree on the exact meaning, with some believing the “four horns” represents all Gentile powers (v. 21), to the four corners of the earth, while others believe these horns are representative of Babylon, Medes-Persians, Greece, and Rome (from Daniel 2, 7). Regardless of the exact meaning, it likely refers to Gentile powers that God used to scatter the Israelites from their Land after continued rebellion. However, as is always the case, God holds these “horns” responsible for the way they treated His peculiar people.

Babylon’s Future Demise

Jeremiah 50:4 tells us several things will occur with the Israelites due to the destruction of Babylon in the future. Notice it says that the people will “come together.” This means that en masse, they will actually leave Babylon and seek the way to Zion. This is not allegorical verbiage to be interpreted metaphorically. It clearly means that in the day Babylon is fully and utterly destroyed, those Israelites living there will leave and journey to Zion (Jerusalem/Israel), where they will enter into a new covenant with God, an everlasting covenant. This is all part of God’s plan to open the eyes of those who will make up the final remnant and enter the Millennial Kingdom ruled by Jesus as saved Israelites who will finally and fully inhabit the Land of Promise.

Prophecies of Isaiah, Pt 4

The latter days spoken of often in Scripture, are times in which I believe we are living now. In fact, it seems clear that these “latter days” begin with the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus. From that point to today, we have been living in “latter” or “last” days before aspects of prophetic discourse finds fulfillment. Several thousand years ago, the prophet Isaiah spoke of the days in which we now live, but he also included the coming Millennial Kingdom over which Jesus will reign.

Prophecies of Isaiah, Pt 3

There is coming a time though when the “root of Jesse” will reign over this world. Isaiah 11 clearly discusses a time in the future when true peace will prevail and it will prevail because of the fact that this “root of Jesse” will reign on the throne physically in Jerusalem over all nations. As we’ve discussed before, even during this time, sin will exist because people who have survived the Tribulation without dying will go into this time where Jesus reigns supreme. These human beings will continue to have the sin nature though saved and completely regenerated with the new life in Christ. This is why Jesus will need to rule with a “rod of iron” (Psalm 2:9, 27; Revelation 2:27; 12:5, etc.).

Deuteronomy 30 Tells of Future Israel’s Fulfillment

The truth is that even though the first generation of Israelites that went into possess the Promised Land had a limited measure of success in rooting out enemies, they did not ever fully or permanently truly possess the Land and cease from their labors to rid the Land of God’s enemies. This has not yet occurred in history to this day and can be clearly seen in the ongoing conflicts, struggles, and terrorism within the Middle East. What Moses is speaking of here in verses six through eight is really speaking of a yet future time.

What Can We Expect During the Millennium, Part 10?

Following the peace and true prosperity of the 1,000-year Millennial Kingdom, there is more bad news in store for people like the ones described above (and for more about this, read Romans 1 where Paul explains the natural downward spiral of those who start out rejecting God and end up full-blown leftists). Once the Millennial Kingdom is over, the Great White Throne Judgment occurs.
