I have to give President Trump credit. It took a lot of guts to withdraw from the Paris climate accords. I don’t think anyone else would have been so bold. The climate agreement has nothing to do with climate. It is all about global governance and wealth redistribution. The science behind global warming was always bogus. It is like the science of evolution. If you tell a lie often enough, and if you give jobs to only those that will promote the lie, the lie will be taught as truth. You cannot reason with those given over to a reprobate mind.… continue reading
I had not read Apocalypse Road, by Bill Salus because I thought it was just the continuation of Revelation Road which I have read (it is). I thought it would just be telling me the traditional view about what happens after the Rapture (it does not) I already knew about that. Apocalyptic Road is really about events in the gap between the Rapture and the start of Daniel’s 70th week.
I recently watched some interviews with Bill Salus on his book Apocalypse Road. What Bill said in those interviews sparked my interest because back in 2003/2004 when I was writing my Revelation commentary, I also came to the conclusion that everything said could not occur in just seven years like so many Bible prophecy teachers were teaching.… continue reading
Dr. Michael S. Heiser has been brought up a number of times on this blog so I think a book review of his latest novel is past due. Fourteen years after The Facade was published Heiser wrote a sequel in 2014 named The Portent. I can understand the long delay. When one writes about how Satan and his Antichrist might go about deceiving the world, just regurgitating what is already widely taught is not going to add much to the debate. The Portent is loaded with new insights that could only be written about after they were first found.
In The Facade, Heiser generally went with the cutting edge conjectures being taught on Bible prophecy and UFO forums around the turn of the century.… continue reading
The Genesis 6 Conspiracy, by Gary Wayne, was mentioned on this blog so a brief critique of the book seems appropriate.
I decided to get the book after I watched some interviews with Gary Wayne on YouTube. The book is about 800 pages and all of it is rather small print. The word count is equal to about three normal sized books. The book has almost 100 chapters. It includes a bibliography that numbers about 130 publications and that is followed by 100 pages of end notes (3000 to 4000 of them!). The book is a difficult read. There are a lot of mythological names to deal with.… continue reading
A day is coming soon that will shake the beliefs of everyone on earth. Jesus said, even the elect would be deceived if that were possible. Paul said, God shall send those that hate the truth a strong delusion, that they should believe a lie. I think God will resurrect a fallen leader to carry out that strong delusion. He will deceive all those that reject the gospel of salvation through Jesus.
Today it may be hard to comprehend how anyone could quickly come to power and take control over all the nations of the world. However, if extra terrestrial beings were disclosed that came with the narrative that the earth needed to appoint a leader to deal with a hostile threat coming upon the planet, you might see why the leaders of the world would come together to put someone in charge.… continue reading
Some of the contents in the Book of Enoch (1 Enoch) requires that either the person giving the message was a prophet, or that much of the book of Enoch was written after the New Testament. Notwithstanding, there is now solid proof that parts of the book were written before the birth of Christ. Therefore, it should be obvious that a prophet had something to do with what is found in certain portions of 1 Enoch.
The book has five sections. Parts of four of the five sections are found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. Two Enoch fragments of these scrolls were recently carbon dated to between 166 and 102 BC and 186 and 92 BC.… continue reading
I think some Christians assume that many more people will go in the Rapture than will actually go. Some think countries like the United States will be significantly depopulated because of the Rapture. I do not believe that will be the case. Perhaps only two hundred million people in the whole world will go in the Rapture.
There are seven church types on earth revealed by the Lord’s seven letters to the churches in Revelation. Even so, only the letter to Philadelphia says it will be kept out of the great trial on earth (Rev 3:10). The letter says that the church of Philadelphia was to be kept from the time of the tribulation because she kept the Lord’s word (biblical doctrine), did not deny His name (Jesus is the only name under heaven whereby people must be saved), and kept the word of the Lord’s return for His Church.… continue reading
Forty years ago I thought the Lord would come long before now and so did many others. In those days people were thinking that the Lord would come about 2000 years from His incarnation. Now it seems more fitting that Jesus would come 2000 years from the start of His ministry when He announced the acceptable year of the Lord, or 2000 years from His death and resurrection. This is based on the day is as a thousand-year model with 7000 years being the week allotted to mortal man.
So here we are in 2017 and the Lord still has not returned for His Church.… continue reading
Many Christians have taken supernatural explanations out of the Bible. They claim to believe the supernatural realm exists but they deny it exists by teaching natural explanations for biblical accounts that do not say what some claim they teach. Two prime examples are the usual Sunday school explanation for when the Sons of God took daughters of men and produced offspring, and the watered down explanation for the nature of the Beast of Revelation.
The Bible clearly teaches that Elohim (angels) had unnatural offspring with women, (the Nephilim) even if many in our churches have an agenda to deny any supernatural explanation.… continue reading
The worldwide debt reset could be pushed off for another decade or so using smoke, mirrors, bailouts and bail-ins, but sooner or later it will occur. The debts of nations are at the point where only the interest on national debts are being paid. The principle on national debts is no longer repayable. It will never be paid.
By a debt reset, I mean that national debts will not be paid. Nations will agree to start over under a new monetary system.
The reality that we are living in is that most nations are so indebted that they cannot raise enough tax revenue to even pay their bills.… continue reading
