He Shall Sit on the Throne!

Throne of His GloryJesus tells us in the Olivet Discourse that when he returns he will sit on the throne of his glory (Matthew 25:31). However, Paul also claims that, when Christ comes (1Corinthians 15:23), “Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power” (1Corinthians 15:24). How does Jesus sit upon the throne of his glory at his coming (Matthew 25:31), when he, at the same time, delivers the Kingdom to God, his Father (1Corinthians 15:24)? Read the rest of this entry »

Jesus’ Second Coming & Amillennialism

Amillennialism

In an earlier study on Daniel 7, I had demonstrated that Daniel’s prophecy was a single prediction of end time events. In it Daniel mentioned a persecuting power or authority (the little horn; Daniel 7:8) that arose out of the fourth gentile kingdom, which virtually all Bible students identify as the Roman Empire. Understanding this, and the fact that Matthew 16:27-28 has a foundation in Daniel 7 is devastating to the historical premillennial and the dispensational premillennial positions.[1] This is so, because once one realizes that Jesus coming, in the glory of the Father (Matthew 16:27) and in the Kingdom (verse-28), are one and the same coming, then Jesus’ words: “some standing here shall not taste death” until that coming puts Jesus’ Second Coming in the first century AD.

Who Are the Persecutors of the Saints?

Persecuting Authority

I have been looking at the implications coming out of an understanding of Matthew 16:27-28 and pointing out that Jesus had come (Second Coming) cir. 70 AD in fulfillment of his promise to come into his Kingdom, during the lifetimes of some of the people, who were listening to him (Matthew 16:28). In doing so, I’ve drawn on several prophesies in Isaiah and Daniel in an effort to show that Jesus was “a servant to the Jews for the sake of the truth in order to fulfill the promise God made to the fathers” (Romans 15:8 – paraphrased).

Jesus’ Coming and Daniel 7

Little Horn

I’m presently focusing upon what Jesus said in Matthew 16:27-28. It is a very controversial scripture, and, if taken literally, debunks modern futurism that looks for Jesus to come in the clouds to judge mankind. Imagine, if you can, turning to Christian radio or Christian TV and not finding a single channel that wants to tell you about Jesus’ soon return or that the world is about to come to an end. At least from the point of view of modern eschatology. Much of what we see in modern Christianity has become a fear-religion rather than the Good News faith. Instead of preaching the Gospel of Christ, we often hear about the end of our space-time continuum. Is that what Jesus told us to do? I don’t think so. According to how I read Jesus’ words, he has already kept his word to us back in the first century AD, and absolutely no one got left behind! Read the rest of this entry »
