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
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!
“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, prepared like a bride adorned for her husband.” (Rev. 21:1-2)
Now that we have come to Revelation. 21 and will turn to “a new heaven and a new earth”, it may be that those who have followed the series, have a clue of where I go. I want to show that the new heavens and new earth are present, but it probably needs more explanation.
We Christians have been taught to believe that in ‘the end’ we will literally go into the perfect new heavens and new earth, dressed in the new physical body through the physical resurrection. Thus we are taught that Revelation 21:1 to 22:5 is about the Millennium that will come sometime in the future. But what I will argue is that the new creation that John presents here is a present reality as the ‘perfect order’, and will perfectly fulfill and replace. That is a new creation presented as an ideal image of the Christian faith in time and in the soil. Curious how this can be? Continue reading!
…and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. (Rev. 6:14).
In this post I want to write about some of the events in the judgment and the meaning of it. I can’t cover every seal, bowl or trumpet because of space and I still not have everything clear of every single verse of them. But the links between the historical facts and Revelation are many, and I take only a few of these. Because of I want to show the historical facts, it will be some excerpts from our friend and historian Josephus, and there again a long post, so I had to divide it into two blog posts.
In these series, I have several times mention that Israel’s rejection of their Messiah and the persecution of the saints would result in a major disaster, which is now happening. This is what the prophesy of John in Revelation is about. A divine judgment on Israel, where the destruction is over the people, land, and Temple. God literally tearing away the temple from the historic scene by using the Roman army, which he prophetically calls “his army” (Matthew 22:7).
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.” (Rev. 13:11).
You have now been shown two characters in Revelation, namely, the harlot and the beast who came up out of the sea (Revelation 13:1, 2, 11). But John also saw another animal who came up from the earth, it had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. There are actually two animals we are dealing with in Revelation. So lets look at this another animal from land. Continue reading
“And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.” (Rev. 11:8).
I flinched, it was like some thrown a bucket of ice water over me and I froze. I looked down in the Bible and read the verse again … «Yes, it is actually there,» I said to myself. I turn the pages frantically until I find a confirmation. «Yes, there it says …» “And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” The Holly Spirit shaken me vigorously and it was as if you had thrown rocks at the kitchen window and freezes when the window shatters and you realize you’ve done something wrong.
