Was the resurrection of Jesus another generation?

February 20, 2011 Comments off

Preterism is founded upon a mistaken interpretation of the saying of Jesus, that “This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.” Of course not all was fulfilled in the first century. Jesus remains alive, and is part of that generation of which he spoke. His generation has not passed away.

A recent preterist response to this was: “If Jesus included Himself in that generation He was the first one to die of that generation. The resurrected Jesus is another generation.” Read more…

Mountains as promises

February 18, 2011 1 comment

Mountains are often referred to in the prophecies of scripture. The symbolic meaning of the promised land is illustrated in God’s blessing of Jacob. In Jacob’s blessing of Joseph, his reference to the height of the mountains suggests elevated ideas, and thinking in a higher mode. His reference to the perpetual duration of mountains and hills suggests they represent things that are eternal, and spiritual in nature.

When Jacob left his father’s house, he spent a night at Bethel, where he dreamed of a ladder whose top reached to heaven, and God stood above it. God made several promises to Jacob; he said, “the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” [Genesis 28:13-14]

The ladder set up on the earth with angels ascending and descending on it, bringing messages to man from heaven, was connected with the promise of the land. In centuries following the land was associated with many revelations of God. Read more…

A chart of the 70th week

February 15, 2011 Comments off

Below is a chart illustrating the 70th week. Earlier events are shown at the top, and later events at the bottom. The numbers provided in Daniel 12, and in Revelation 11 & 12, that represent the age of the church, and the time, times and a half, are each provided a vertical column, terminating at the end of the age. The largest number, 1,335 days, extends from the crucifixion of Jesus to the end of the age. The 1,290 days represents the remaining time of the church after the abomination of desolation is set up, and the sacrifices are ended. The 1,260 days represents the remaining time after the book of Revelation was written, which was probably about 95 AD. This corresponds to the 42 months. The 3.5 days, when the two witnesses lie as corpses in the street, is also shown. Read more…

Horses of the 2nd woe

February 14, 2011 1 comment

In the prophecies of scripture, animals sometimes represent nations, or categories of people. Jesus is called the shepherd, his sheep are those who belong in his sheepfold, and false teachers are represented by predators such as wolves.

There are many prophecies which refer to horses. In some of those prophecies, horses represent people who lack understanding, and their riders are those who guide or lead them. David wrote, “Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.” [Psalm 32:9] Jeremiah wrote, “They were as fed horses in the morning: every one neighed after his neighbor’s wife.” [Jeremiah 5:8] Read more…
