Death in the New Heaven and New Earth!

New Heaven - 1

from Google Images

The Lord told John to write that the overcomer would inherit all things, and the Lord, Jesus, would be his God, and the overcomer would be Jesus’ son (Revelation 21:7)! Let’s consider this for a moment. If the things in Revelation 21 take place after all things are made new (Revelation 21:5, and after the thousand year reign of Christ that was an era of peace like no other before it; and, if this chapter also occurs after the resurrection and judgment of the just and the unjust, after which all the wicked are cast into the lake of fire, **if** all these things are behind us, as we enter the New Jerusalem, what has the believer to overcome?

Jesus’ Source for the Wedding Motif

Marriage Covenant

from Google Images

I have been studying of late the eschatology of Jesus’ Parable of the Wedding, found in Matthew 22:1-14. In it a king extends his invitation to attend his son’s wedding to certain people, but they refuse his offer to be his guests at the wedding. I have demonstrated in my previous study that this parable points to the Lord’s judgment upon the Jewish nation in 70 AD when Jerusalem was conquered by the Roman armies, who also destroyed the Temple (Matthew 22:7). The wedding feast was then to occur afterward. Read the rest of this entry »

Was the Kingdom Postponed?

Kingdom Postponed

from Google Images

Many folks today believe that the establishment of the Kingdom of God was postponed by God, because the Jews rejected Jesus as their Messiah? Is that true? Do men’s decisions have that much power with God that he must change his plans to accommodate the plans of men? In other words, is our will stronger than God’s will? Paul asks that question in 1Corinthians 10:22, but his question is asked facetiously, when he asks, “Are we stronger than he (i.e. the Lord)?” By the way, Paul answered his own question earlier in the same letter when he said: “The weakness of God is stronger than men” (1Corinthians 1:26). So, my question still stands: “Do men’s decisions have that much power with God that he must change his plans to accommodate the plans of men?” Read the rest of this entry »

The Lord Does Not Delay his Promises

Second Coming - 4

from Google Images

Peter spoke of scoffers who denied his claim that the Lord’s coming was near (2Peter 3:3-4). It seems that many folks today are all too willing to agree with the scoffers of Peter’s day, saying the Lord’s coming is yet in the future and this is nearly 2000 years since Peter’s day. So, those Christians who try to tell us that Jesus will soon appear in our day are really agreeing with the Peter’s scoffers who mocked at his preaching of an early arrival of Jesus. I have to wonder at the strange bedfellows that error breeds. Read the rest of this entry »

Why Would the Scoffers Ridicule Peter?

Scoffers - 4People want to talk about the end times, Christ’s coming in the clouds, the end of the world, what’s going on in the Middle East and how that pertains to ‘end time events’ and Jesus’ feet standing on the Mount of Olives, but they **don’t** want to talk about the time statements indicated in the prophecies that point to those same events! The only thing they know about that time is “no one knows the day or the hour.” Yet, Jesus told us that the very things these folks want to talk about would occur in a single generation—that is, the generation in which Jesus lived (Matthew 23:36; 24:34). Nevertheless, NO ONE wants to talk about that! Therefore, these folks simply ignore the fact that Peter mentions the similarity of what he was about to tell his readers (2Peter 3:1) to what he had already told them in his first epistle. That is where Peter claimed that he and his readers were living in the last time (1Peter 1:5).[1] Read the rest of this entry »

What Difference Does It Make?

AD70

from Google Images

Does it make any difference whether I am a dispensational premillennialist or an amillennialists or a postmillennialist or a full preterist? What difference does it make when Jesus comes, as long as he comes? When I was a premillennialist, I didn’t think it mattered at all. I knew what I believed, and, if you believed differently, that was okay with me—you were wrong, but I didn’t mind, because I didn’t think eschatology was that important. I don’t mean to imply it wasn’t a lot of fun to study about the end times. It was great fun, but I figured, if God didn’t think it was important enough to reveal the day and the hour, well, how important could it be what I believed, just as long as Jesus did come eventually?
