How Did the Jews Understand Daniel?

Understanding Daniel

from Google Images

Jesus claimed that the Law and the Prophets were until John (Luke 16:16), and Isaiah spoke of an age, or the time of the Jews’ service, coming to an end in Isaiah 40:2. Isaiah’s prophecy is at the heart of the reason for John’s ministry (Luke 3:4-5; cf. Isaiah 40:3-4). The end of this period marked the beginning of the time when the Kingdom of God was preached (Luke 16:16). In a previous blogpost I argued that the age that came to an end is represented in Daniel’s Seventy Weeks Prophecy as the time of the building of the Temple and the waiting for the Messiah, comprising 483 years (cf. Daniel 9:25). Read the rest of this entry »

Revival!

from Google Images

from Google Images

Many Christians believe there will be an end time revival before the Second Coming of Christ to this earth.[1] Without commenting on the validity of such a thing, what might that look like, if it occurred, and what should we be doing in an effort to make ourselves ready for it? The words that come immediately to mind are the words of Christ that the disciple is not above his master, nor is the servant above his lord (Matthew 10:24). If Jesus shook up his world during his earthly ministry, then whatever an end time revival might look like, it is enough to say that we should be as our Lord (Luke 6:40), and, whatever we believe the Bible says about such a period, it should never be made to mean something that contradicts the nature of Jesus as Servant, i.e. the Weakness of God or the One of no reputation. The Bible is the word of God written down to reveal the Word of God. It cannot be made to violate that understanding (John 10:35). Read the rest of this entry »

The Day of the Lord

At times I wonder if it isn’t easier to convince an unbeliever of the truth about the Lord and his word than to convince a believer who believes wrong doctrine and thinks he is correct. It doesn’t seem to matter how many Scriptures I use to prove a point, the brother will cling to the error taught him by a man he trusts or the organization of which he is a member.

Image of the Beast & The 7 Sons of Sceva ~ Part 1

Awhile ago, I had been reading about a particular study theme in Lee T. Dahn’s blog showing both the Gospel of Luke and the book of Acts have an underlying theme that contrasts the priestly family of Annas with the priesthood of Christ, the one being corrupt and the other holy. I found his point of view very interesting, and because of my reading his study, I have begun to recognize this theme behind some of the symbols in the book of Revelation. For example, I’ve already made the claim that the Image of the Beast is actually the seven sons or descendents of Annas, the high priest. Read the rest of this entry »

Who or What is Antichrist?

Many folks seem to be looking for an end-time figure who would rule the world for a short time, and this political figure would set up a deal with the Jews and later betray them. It would look like he would make peace, but in the end terrible destruction eventually takes place. They have several names for this political person: the Beast, the Man of Sin, the Son of Perdition and even Antichrist, because he is supposed to also persecute Christians. What about these things; are they true? No, they are actually false conceptions. I have written about the Beast and several times about the Man of Sin, who is also the Son of Perdition. At this time I intend to address the name Antichrist. Read the rest of this entry »

Gospel to Be Preached in All the World

Gospel Preached to the World - 3

from Google Images

In Matthew 24:14 Jesus said the Gospel of the Kingdom of God would be preached in all the world, and then the end would come. What does this mean? Did Jesus mean it must be preached to every remote tribe or village on every continent and island on the planet? Did he mean it had to be preached to every people-group, as is assumed by many today? If Jesus cannot come, until the Gospel is preached according to his command, then it should be obvious in the text what Jesus meant. Otherwise, how would the disciples know what to do? So, what does the text actually say? Read the rest of this entry »

Jesus’ Coming in 70 AD

Jerusalem's Temple

from Google Images

“When shall these things be?” (Matthew 24:3). Some folks try to say that this question concerned the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD, but the final two questions in this verse, namely “What shall be the sign of your coming” and “(What shall be the sign) of the end of the age (or world)?” are for our future in the 21st century. But is this true? Read the rest of this entry »
