Preterist Introduction

Does Eschatology Matter?

On July 11, I spoke on the subject of how to share the preterist view. In that message I asked the question, "Is eschatology important?" Does it really matter what your view on the second coming is? Will it somehow impact your life? In answer to that question I gave four reasons why your view of eschatology matters. They were:…

Typology

Lev. 23 The Feasts of the Lord, Part 5

We are studying the Feasts of the Lord found in Leviticus 23. The study of the feasts is a study in typology. Typology is the interpretation of Old Testament events, persons, and ceremonies as signs, which prefigured Christ’s fulfillment in the New Covenant with the church. For time sake, I’m not going to do any review this morning, but we’re…

Lev. 23 The Feasts of the Lord, Part 4

We are studying the "Feasts of the Lord" found in Leviticus 23. The study of the feasts is a study in typology.

Typology

Lev. 23 The Feasts of the Lord, Part 3

We are studying the "Feasts of the Lord" found in Leviticus 23. The study of the feasts is a study in typology. Typological hermeneutics involves explicating signs in the Old Testament as foreshadowing events and people in the New. These seven feasts represent and typify the sequence, timing, and significance of the major events of the Lord’s redemptive history. They…

Lev. 23 The Feasts of the Lord, Part 2

We are studying the Feasts of the Lord. There are seven of them and they are listed in chronological sequence in Leviticus 23. Leviticus 23:4 (NKJV) ‘These are the feasts of the LORD, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at their appointed times. The word "feasts" means: "appointed times." The word "holy convocation" means: "rehearsal." In other words, the feasts…

Lev. 23 The Feasts of the Lord, Part 1

As Americans, when we think of holidays, we think of a time away from work when we can do what we enjoy. We observe quite a few holidays; we celebrate everything from Christmas to St. Patrick’s Day. But Old Covenant Israel’s holidays were prescribed by God. There were seven of them. These seven holidays are discussed throughout the Bible, in…

Preterist Introduction

What is the Preterist View?

Have you ever wondered why it is that men can read the same Bible and come up with totally different views of the second coming? How can some study the Bible and be futurists while some see the partial preterist view and yet others are full preterists? "Preterist" means past in fulfillment, and "Futurist" means future in fulfillment. Futurists believe…

Second Coming of Christ

A Third Coming?

Matthew 24:36-42 We are studying the Olivet Discourse of our Lord found in Matthew 24. This is a very important chapter; it is in fact the heart of New Testament prophecy. We have seen that looking at this text through first century glasses gives us a whole new meaning of Jesus’ words. Jesus is not talking to us (twentieth century…

New Heaven and Earth

Heaven and Earth Passed Away

We looked last week at the time statements in the Bible as to the coming of the Lord. We saw that he said he would come — while some that were standing there were still living; in that generation; soon; quickly; at hand; he said his coming was near. Everywhere that the Bible talks about the Lord’s coming it gives…
