Prophecy Watch

Prophecy WatchWe are to watch and pray for the Lord’s return. We will help you do so by keeping our eyes on the signs of the times and reporting them to you. Jesus chastised the Pharisees for not knowing the signs of the times in His day. So He wants to us know the signs today, for they instill in us hope for the future and encourage us to evangelize the lost while there is still time.

2017 ended with Bitcoin making daily headlines. If you're not familiar with Bitcoin, it's a specific type of cryptocurrency (a secure digital currency). It made daily headlines mostly due to the mania surrounding its steep rise in price.

Why are so many people euphoric about Bitcoin?

We are witnessing the beginning of Silicon Valley institutionalizing its religious beliefs. As Wired reported recently, Anthony Levandowski, a top Silicon Valley engineer formerly working for Google's self-driving car company Waymo and now at the center of the trade secrets lawsuit between Uber and Waymo, founded a religious organization called Way of the Future. Its goal? To "develop and promote the realization of a Godhead based on Artificial Intelligence."

Preparing for Tribulation

Omega Letter

Preparing for Tribulation - how do we prepare for the tribulation and Jesus' return? While we're asking questions, how do we prepare for any pre-tribulation tribulation? You know - the kind which often overtakes us in our daily lives.

Over the years I've noticed a burgeoning Tribulation Preparation Industry. I'm all for preparedness to a point. However I've always been - and still am - somewhat cynical that people can bunker down for seven years, waiting in hiding until the Lord returns. These items can be awfully costly. Most of us can't afford to prepare that way.

The Last Hour

Throughout scripture, we take note of the different statements from Christ, the prophets, and the apostles regarding time in the last days. One could easily note that the prophets and apostles viewed themselves as being in the last days even in their day. This nearness (as we would call it) has been the cannon fodder for the skeptic, Preterist and Amillennialist alike and have used it for centuries to try and beef up their eschatological positions. But seeing as how they (apostles and prophets) viewed themselves as being at the end of all things, how much closer to the Lord's return are we now than they were then?

As we approach the end of days for the rule of mankind upon this earth, we see environmental disasters all over this planet. Volcanoes that have been dormant for hundreds, if not thousands of years coming to life and causing devastation in their path. We see weather patterns that have not been this active in generations of the American people. I am a witness to the lack of a real summer this year, as we have had rainfall after rainfall, and many times way too much. Flooding of low lying areas even here in the Midwest and unseasonable cool weather. I have never witnessed such a summer as we have just experienced and what appears to be an early fall starting in August??

The Bible Answer Man Said What? - Markell

A few years ago Hank Hanegraaff, the Bible Answer Man, came out as a Preterist. That theological aberration says all prophecy is past: It all happened in 70 A.D. We missed it! It's actually history, not prophecy. Who knew?

To believe that then I've been studying something that is ancient history and offers no hope for the future. There is no Rapture and no Millennium. Nothing. Our "blessed hope" went up in smoke. We can only pour through the history books to learn that prophecy was fulfilled almost 2,000 years ago. This stretches credulity since one-third of the Bible -- all references to things to come -- is written in a futuristic tone.

So You Want To Be Left Behind

LaHaye quickly became the whipping boy of non-pretrib premil bloggers. Previously it was Hal Lindsey. One popular blogger emailed LaHaye with a bunch of "gotcha" questions - and followed up with his own book. If I had a dollar for every protest email sent to pretrib teacher I'd be a wealthy man.

World War IV: Part 1

And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, "Come and see." Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword. Revelation 6:2-4

But some are reasons that may be new to some. I have selected some to list here. I might mention Dr. Pentecost's statement that we should all remember when studying Scripture, "These considerations all arise from the literal method of interpretation."
