True Preterism and the Creeds: An Unworkable Partnership!

Preterism and the Creeds An Unworkable Partnership! Those whose allegiance is to history and the creeds, instead of the Biblical text, point an accusing, condemnatory finger at the true preterists and call them heretics and false teachers. Of course, those same people conveniently overlook the fact that their own theology– if they call themselves Reformed– was against 1000 years of…

Did the Creeds and the Historical Church "Miss It?"

I make no bones about the fact that I believe that the creeds and historic Christianity have and do miss– badly– what the Bible actually says. This is particularly true in regards to the nature of the coming of the Lord, as well as the timing. It is prima facie, indisputably true, that historically, the church has failed to come…

Why Is Eschatology Important? Matthew 24:30

Lot’s of folks claim that the fall of Jerusalem was such a minor affair that folks in Rome, or Thessalonica, or Ephesus, or wherever, would have no interest in it, and could not have cared less about it. This was one of the arguments that John Welch, amillennialist, made in my 2008 debate with him. Of course, according to scripture–…

Can We Give Proper Glory to Christ If He Did Not Come?

One of the most challenging– and ignored– judgment texts is in John 5:19-23. Did you know that Jesus said men would honor him after– AFTER — he had come in judgment as he had seen the Father come in judgment? Really, now, do you grasp what Jesus said? This is just absolutely incredible, and yet, you seldom if ever read…

Does It Matter if Jesus Kept His Word?

The skeptics and those who reject Jesus and the Bible continually point to what they consider to be an indisputable argument: Jesus (and his apostles) said that Christ’s return and the end of the age was to occur in the first century. It did not happen, therefore, Jesus cannot be the Son of God, the Bible is not inspired. In…

Israel-The Wedding-Revelation- An InseperableConnection

As an amillennialists believing in what is commonly called the Reformed View of Revelation, I had no clue about how to explain or understand the Wedding Motif in Revelation. To compound the problem, my upbringing informed me that God was through with Israel and the OT promises at the Cross. Yet, Revelation is clearly, undeniably about the Wedding, in fulfillment…

The Dating of Revelation and the Wedding Feast of Matthew 22

Virtually all commentators agree that Jesus’ parables of the Wedding Feast, the killing of the servants sent to invite those who had been invited, and the ensuing destruction of the city of those violent servants, was a prediction of the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70. So, why do those same commentators ignore the fact that in Revelation, God had…

The Fall of Babylon- Christ’s Wedding– And Israel

Revelation is the story of Two Women– Two Wives– Two Cities- Two Mountains, Two Seeds. See my book Who Is This Babylon for a full discussion of these contrasts. What this means, especially in the context of Christ’s Wedding, is that Revelation had to have been written before the fall of Jerusalem– the Divorce of Judah– and the makiing of…

The Reformed View of Revelation and Babylon

Many postmillennialists and amillennialism share a belief– what is commonly called the Reformed view– that Revelation is about the fall of the Roman Catholic Church. Greg Bahnsen noted: “The Westminster divines looked forward to the overthrow of the Roman Antichrist, the expansion of the true church by the conversion of the Jews and the fulness of the Gentiles, and an…

Revelation and the Fulfillment of Israel's Promises

Revelation 19 cites the Song of Moses– Deuteronomy 32:43– as fulfillled in the judgment of “Babylon.” But, if God was through with Israel and the OT at hte cross, hnow could this be??? When I came to the realization of the indisputable truth that Revelation was about the final, consummative fulfillment of God’s Old Covenant promises made to Israel, this…
