The Song of the Lamb

John tells us that the overcomers of Revelation 15:2 sang the Song of Moses and the Song of the Lamb (Revelation 15:3-4), but what is the Song of the Lamb? Many scholars would point us to the song in Revelation 5:9-13, but, if we consider the exact words of Revelation 15:3, we have to admit the song OF the Lamb would not be a song about the Lamb. The Lamb is the one praising God in Revelation 15, while the Lamb is the object of praise in Revelation 5:9-13. I believe the Lamb, the One who was Jesus, is praising the Father in this chapter.

Judging First Century AD Babylon

Song of Moses - 4

from Google Images

When I was a premillennialist, I didn’t consider it all that important to know when Jesus would return, because, after all, no one could know the “day or the hour” (Matthew 24:36), and I was repulsed by the never-ending line of prophet wannabes in our modern era, who were so willing (for a price) to tell others when Jesus would return. Therefore, I usually stayed away from anything that dealt with eschatology. The last days can’t be known, so I busied myself doing what I could do, today, hoping that in some way what I did was pleasing to the Lord. However, all this has changed since the summer of 2017.

The Context of Matthew 16

Song of Moses - 2

Presently I am involved in an in-depth study of two verses: Matthew 16:27-28. I have chosen to do this, because it has come to my attention that the whole of the futurists’ argument for a Second Coming of Christ—in our future—hangs upon their determined effort to separate verse-27 from verse-28 by at least 2000 years. This is both contextually and grammatically invalid. Moreover, it hasn’t one iota of foundation elsewhere in the word of God, either in the New Testament or in the Old Testament prophecies. The gap theory (as I call it) has everything to do with eisegesis and nothing to do with exegesis. Read the rest of this entry »

Stored Up and Reserved for Judgment

End of the Age

from Google Images

I have been commenting on the meaning of Peter’s words in 2Peter 3:7 for the past several studies, and I intend to continue to do so in this one. Peter uses two words in order to support the idea that ‘heaven and earth’ refer to the Jewish or the Old Covenant age. Notice that he says “…the heavens that now are, and the earth, by the same word have been stored up for fire, being reserved against the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men” (emphasis mine). I want to consider the words stored up and reserved in order to understand more accurately what Peter is telling us. Read the rest of this entry »
