Explaining the Prince of Daniel 11

In an effort to say the prince found in Daniel 9:26 is “the antichrist” rather than Jesus Christ, some prophecy teachers use the negative descriptions of the prince found in Daniel 11 as their “proof text.” These teachers lose their argument however when it is shown that the prophecies found in Daniel 11 have already […]

For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. (Matthew 5:18 ) If we do not currently have a new heaven and a new earth, would we therefore still be under every stipulation of the Law, many of which focus […]

A Thousand Years As One Day

The Bible does not say Peter’s “thousand years” statement is about a timetable foretelling the years found in a dispensation of time.

The Time of Revelation: Part 2 of 3

Extra-Biblical Early Date Evidences   Irenaeus’ Support of an Early Date of Revelation Ironically Irenaeus, who is credited with the one quote that “proves” a late date for Revelation’s writing, also gives us two quotes that support an early dating for its writing as well.

Locating the Borders of a Promise: Part 7 of 9

The Other Side of the Wilderness Journey It seems the promises of God are always fulfilled on the other side of a wilderness. Biblically, the wilderness is a place where one is both tested and matured. These are necessary to ready a person to enter into that which God has called him. Abraham had his […]

Locating the Borders of a Promise: Part 6 of 9

Making Wrongs Right Through Repentance Due to the sins of their people, both Daniel and Nehemiah found themselves in exile from the Promised Land. While there, they exemplified the need for individual and corporate repentance. They did this because they knew what was required of God before their people could return back to the land. […]
