SUBSTANTIATION (4)

Not one of the old covenant writers/prophets said that any of these things would happen during their own lifetimes; however, all of the new covenant writers wrote and believed that these things were to happen during their generation! Either all of the new covenant writers (including Jesus) were wrong, or all of these things did indeed happen in their generation. They did happen, and we who are alive 2000 years later simply should not be anticipating any of these events in our future.

SUBSTANTIATION (3)

Let us consider that the we are presently living in the everlasting New Covenant age, that the Church is what God had in mind all along, and from God’s point of view, the New Covenant encompasses, consummates, fulfills, supersedes—or better put—is the culmination of all the previous great covenants as are recorded in Scripture.

SUBSTANTIATION (2)

When we begin to lay aside, by faith, the negative “end times” mishmash that presently grips American cultural Christianity and begin to simply look at the Bible for what it is—the record of God continually making covenant with His people—the Church of the new covenant slowly comes into focus, illumined to appear to us as she is. It’s then we come to realize just how much of a short shrift the Church has been given for decades on end.

SUBSTANTIATION

Those privileged to have been freed, by the grace of God, from a particular bondage are able to free others. Even so, such a privilege is always accompanied by a certain responsibility. Our God has designed things so that His Church leads, either in truth or in error, and the rest of society follows suit. Errors in eschatology—the study of the time of the end according to Scripture—presently affect a large majority in the Body of Christ and thus, the world as a whole.

OVERCOMING REFORM HINDRANCES

Our God is continually reforming His Church.  It is a privilege to be allowed to participate in what He is presently doing in that regard.  What follows are just a few of the bumps in the road we past-fulfilled eschatology advocates incur while attempting to speak the truth in love.

WORLD WITHOUT END

Scriptures that have been used to teach a catastrophic end to the world need to be understood within the first-century context of the writers.

WHEN CHRIST RETURNED

For centuries doomsday prophets have erroneously predicted that their generation would see the last great battle between good and evil—Armageddon. However, many Bible scholars believe this alleged future battle has already taken place. This alternative to the futuristic theory of Armageddon is the biblical covenantal/historical view.

BACK TO BASICS, Part 2

An emphasis within a note in BACK TO BASICS, Part 1 caused me to think of the passage, John 14:2-3, and to what I believe is the prevalent misunderstanding of what is being said within it.  That misunderstanding has, as part of its basis, a persistent faulty view of end times prophecy concerning the nature and timing of Jesus’ return or second coming.  Before we get into second coming misconceptions and in keeping with our “back to basics” theme, let’s first address the passage of Scripture and what I believe, by faith, that the Spirit has shown concerning it.

BACK TO BASICS

Let's talk about eternal life.  Scripture teaches us that a saved person, one having experienced being born again, is going to live on forever in heavan after his mortal body has expired here on earth.  So, is that the gift of eternal life spoken of by our Lord and by His apostles?  While I am not disputing that it is, there is more to it than that.  I am drawn to a poem that I came acrosss somewhere in my travels that may shed some light on what that "more" truly is.  I will share it here.

CONVERSATIONS

I have had enough conversations with my own fellow believers to know that what they believe about Bible prophecy does affect a very important aspect of their salvation.  If being “saved” means being made whole, and it does, what does that say about being made whole in this life—not just physically but mentally and emotionally as well—and not just in the great by and by of heaven?I am going to share two of those conversations here to show what I mean.
