Les denne på norsk! — Read it in norwegian!
Ai, time is flying. It is said that the time always flies fast when you have fun. It’s just that I’ve had so much fun lately that I didn’t notice that the endtime passed by, or at least the entrance of it. I wrote about Blood Moon Theology some time ago, and we’ll look at it again now to see how things have gone. Actually, I think I must be in the new kingdom now! Theology
Before we proceed, I will ask you and encourage you strongly to read this entire post. This will save you for lot of frustration and fear, also a deception into which the Bible does not speak of at all.
Since there are more than Mr. Hagee who spread around false and corrupt teaching, which also John Shorey, Hal Lindsey, Jonathan Cahn, Mark Biltz and a bunch others do, will I here give a few strong examples and evidence from the Bible that disproves their teaching.
This applies not only to these guys from USA, but also from other parts of the world, including Norway where we also have many strong voices for this same false teaching. Although many do not follow Shorey, Hagee and the others, they still have very similar end-time eschatology; Dispensationalism. Continue reading
Yes, it’s time again for the “end-time prophets” to announce about some obvious natural phenomena which will come again and again… and again, as a sign of major traumatic things that will happen either to Israel or the whole world. In this days it’s the “Blood Moon” which is trendy, and John Hagee is maybe the one who shouts loudest in the “prophecy-chorus” about the blood moon.
John Hagee, one of the major voice within Bood Moon Theology/Prophecy/divination and is author of “Four Blood moon,” a book on the New York Times best seller list (Do not waste your money by buing the book, the explanation is as follows).
The transition from the Old to New
We are well into explaining if the two references to “heaven and earth”, in Revelation. 20:11 and Revelation. 21:1 is the same, and we began deciphering the intentions of using different words as “fled” and “passing” in these passages.
Revelation 20:11., is not written to indicate the nature of the event itself alone, but more to express majesty and power of God that brought these things to escape. In opposite to Rev. 20:11, Rev. 21:1 have a total different and obvious reference to just a nature of a particular event.
God is obvious here in Rev. 21:1-5 too, where He is identified as the Enthroned One, God the creator. But the purpose of language “passed away” in the sentence, “… the first heaven and the first earth were passed away” (Rev. 21:1), is not written to make a identity to him, in the opposit to Rev. 20:1. In the section of Revelation. 21:1-5 we read: …well, go and read!
In the previous post we started talking about our passages in Rev. 20:11. and Rev. 21:1 if they refers to the same event. We saw that they had some indirect similarities in semantics and image. We translated the words [pheugo] and [apelthan], each of which means; Pheugo = “run away”, “retreat” or “escape”. in the sense of getting away from an imminent threat. And apelthan = “pass” (at the moment), “going out” or “leave” (from one place to another place or on the road), or to pass away for good for then never to return.
We was also looking at the understanding of things are “lost” (Revelation 21:1) and ended by asking what is the purpose of using the various terms ([pheugo] and [apelthan]) in the associated with “Heaven and Earth “. I will start with the first word, [pheugo], in this post and wait with the other word, apelthan, for the next blog post.
Let us look at Rev. 20:11 and the purpose of using the word [pheugo] – fled, in this vers. Continue reading
Eschatology is about time
It have been a long time since I posted something her at my english blog, actually 4 1/2 month since last time. Despite of my lack of posting, both here and on my Norwegian blog, it have come some comments on some of my post. Those post have obvious interested some people more than other post.
One of the post I wrote a while back ago, regarding the Bride and the New Jerusalem which is a part of the blog-series I have about Revelation of John. Not unexpected and very pleasant, there have been questions about these things. It is not entirely unexpected comments from close friends who are “millennial-believers” (dispensationism) and who wish me back to the prokrust-bed. What I have to say is that I’m finished customizing the Scripture and the prophecies to my size of bed, but I think it might be helpful to write a bit more regarding the Bride, the New Jerusalem and New Heaven and New Earth. It may help both, me and you.
Many calories has been eaten and burn since I last posted a post here, but I haven’t disappear totally. The reason for the long time is time… more specific lack of time. I have been in Norway and many other stuff have been going around, but I’m here.
We have went through 11 parts of the series of Revelation of John and are now come to an end. Since I like a series of 12 part better than 11, I want to end the series nicely with a summary, so lets start.
“I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth have passed away, and the sea is no more. I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready” (Rev. 21:1-2)
In the previous post we was looking at the New Jerusalem as the new creation which took the place of the old Jerusalem. We looked at the time frame, God’s progressive work in history and a bit superficial of the Bride and its character.
For most people, Revelation 21:1 to 22:5 is an event expected to happen in the future for what they call the “millennium”, and will be the eternal perfect order after the final judgment. But this can not be right, …why? read more to find out!
