    Reverse rapture???

    "So it will be at the end of the age; the angels will come forth and take out the wicked from among the righteous, Matthew 13:49 (NASB) Wait! That's not the way the Rapture is supposed to happen!!! :shocked! Uh-Oh! There's more! "For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the...

    Living stones, vineyards, and the end of all things...

    The purpose of this thread is to get people to see a consistent thread that runs throughout the prophecies of both the Old and New Testaments. Dispensationalism and Futurism both point to the Olivet Discourse, in particular, and Revelation, in general, as proof that the kingdom will be...

    This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world...

    And then the end will come. "This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:14 (NASB) Some say the "end" hasn't come because this gospel hasn't been preached in the whole world. Paul writes otherwise...

    Voice of the seven thunders...

    This is a reference to the mystery of the gospel that had yet to be revealed. It's a recap of the events leading to Christ's death, resurrection, and ascension and the coming of the Holy Spirit: all things associated with His first coming. (He walks the reader back the same way in chapter...

    Understanding apocalyptic language...

    Let's try understanding Matthew 24 again from a different course and heading: understanding apocalyptic language. When Jesus says this: "But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and...

    When does "thousand" not mean "thousand?"

    You can all thank Reba for this one: "For every beast of the forest is Mine, The cattle on a thousand hills. Psalm 50:10 (NASB) She then asked, "Who owns the cattle on hill 1001?" Clearly, the word "thousand" in this verse is meant to convey the idea of vastness: the cattle on an infinite...

    More about Revelation and 1st century Jerusalem...

    And great hailstones, about one hundred pounds each, fell from heaven on people; and they cursed God for the plague of the hail, because the plague was so severe. Revelation 16:21 (ESV) The engines, that all the legions had ready prepared for them, were admirably contrived; but still more...

    Victimized by another bad interpretation???

    For years, we've all read this short little verse: And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, Revelation 20:7 (KJV) And thought nothing of it. Seems pretty simple and straightforward, huh? Maybe not. While perusing one of my literal translations, I...

    If all sin is of the devil...

    {10} And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. Revelation 20:10 (NASB) And the devil is thrown into the lake of fire in Revelation 20, how is it that...

    Revelation 1: an alternate study.

    1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show to His bond-servants, the things which must soon take place; and He sent and communicated it by His angel to His bond-servant John, 2 who testified to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw...

    Parable of the vineyard...

    {1} God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, {2} in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. Hebrews 1:1-2 (NASB) "...For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of...

    Luke's eschatology

    I've written this in several posts along the way, but I think it needs to be addressed in its very own thread. I don't have time to put everything that needs to be written in this OP, so will add as time permits. The first thing that needs to be addressed is the most obvious: Luke was a...

    "And there was no more sea..."

    {18} "For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Matthew 5:18 (NASB) {1} And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no...

    How many remember this passage from Sunday school?

    {16} "Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves. {17} "But beware of men, for they will hand you over to the courts and scourge you in their synagogues; {18} and you will even be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a...

    Resurrection: What, who, and when?

    The subject of the resurrection came up in another thread where it was off-topic, so I created this thread to give this really important topic a place where it can be discussed. First, a little background on the resurrection from the Jewish Encyclopedia, which you should read here before...

    What "Apocalypse" really means.

    This might seem a bit elementary to some but, in the interest of clearing some of the confusion surrounding the word "apocalypse" and what the book of Revelation is all about, I thought I would post an "epiphany" I had about this word tonight. First of all, the Greek word for "apocalypse" is...

    My e-book on Revelation: work in progress

    I've only completed two chapters, but wanted to share it with you. Being too long to post, however, I have saved it in the PDF format. Hope this helps. P.S. Constructive criticism always welcome.

    The Imperfect versus the Perfect...

    Verse 10 of this passage raises 2 questions in my mind: can we know what “the perfect” is and can we know when it will come? I believe the answer is “yes” to both these questions. The first thing that got me thinking about this is the fulfillment of Joel 2:28-29: Now, according to Peter...
