The Last Days of the New Testament – Part 5

The Apostle Peter wrote on his second epistle:
2 Pet. 3:7 “But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.” (NASB)
Was he speaking of his time, or our time?

Last Days of the New Testament – Part 4

When the Apostle Peter wrote in his epistle: “The end of all things is at hand,” is it possible that “at hand” could mean thousands of years later? Or did he mean that the end of all things was actually about to occur? In this 14 minute video, this question is addressed.

 

The Last Days of the New Testament – Part 3

As we continue to show the thinking of the Apostles with regard to their belief in the Last Days, you will notice in this video that the Apostle Peter points out in his speech to the audience at Pentecost in Acts 2 that they were living in the Last Days. He also makes note that the time in which he was living was in the process of fulfilling what was told by the Prophet Joel.
Did his audience get the point? Yes!! it says they were cut to the heart and wondered what they should do.

Last Days, Past or Future? – Part 4

Jesus said in Mark 13:30: “I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.” Do these words seem hard to understand? Then why is there so much controversy over this?

In the final segment of this video series, this is discussed, and why we can believe what Jesus said.

Last Days, Past or Future – Part 3

Jesus said in Mark 13:26: “And then THEY will see the son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. ”

For the first time in this chapter, Jesus speaks of someone outside of the circle of the apostles.

Who is the “THEY” spoken of in this verse? In Part 3 of my 4 part series, I discuss this.

You probably will NOT hear this in your church.

Daniel’s 70 weeks prophecy – Is it fulfilled?

Introduction

At the outset of my attempt to exegete this passage of scripture, I would like to submit that it is a daunting task, one which I believe to be very difficult. Additionally, I do not attempt to state that this writing will contain anything new. Volume after volume has been written concerning this, and I am sure that I have found nothing here that has not already been expounded in some form. It is my opinion that no interpretation will be able to completely stand the test of thorough grammatical criticism. This is due to the fact that there are many different renderings, many translations which contain variations on the wording and words, which are difficult even though we can refer back to the original languages. Add to this that within the original languages, the key words have more than one meaning. For example, in English, the word “order” has over 20 meanings. It is the same with the key words in this passage. In many cases, more than one meaning is available. Because of this and other factors, there are several ways in which many have interpreted this passage.

Now you might be wondering, why would someone go to so much trouble to explain a passage in the book of Daniel? That’s a good question.

For many years I believed the dispensational system of scripture interpretation. But in time, I have found myself questioning some of the things presented. It just seemed to raise other questions. One of these questions was; why at the end of this passage is there a gap of an undetermined time that is still not fulfilled? Why was this prophecy talking about the things which Christ would fulfill, and then all of a sudden switch gears and begin talking about Antichrist? Am I missing something here?

Since this prophecy in Daniel is one of the most important passages in the entire Bible, I have been particularly interested in it. It is vitally important to understand because if it indeed does speak of the future recognition of the Antichrist, then I want to be able to fully understand it.

Having said that, it is well founded that the best way to exegete a passage of scripture is to first of all, view it in its context. We must ask the question, what was this intended to mean to those to whom it was written? Second, since this is a difficult passage, we must use the principle of sola scriptura (Scripture alone), which has come to mean “scripture interprets scripture”. Since we are Christians, we must always view Old Testament passages in the light of New Testament interpretation. It is with these considerations that I submit the following.
