How Many Resurrections Will There Be?

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. – I Thessalonians 4:16 The passage quoted above is often used by millennialists as a proof text confirming the teaching of a double resurrection, […]

Satan: Neither Prince nor Ruler of This World

The consummation of the kingdom of God is eschatological. However, the present reality of the kingdom is certainly not, nor is that of the present reign of Jesus Christ as King of kings. It is a great comfort to the Church that at the right hand of God is seated He Who reigns supremely over […]

Check Mate to Dan Phillips, Frank Turk, Phil Johnson & John MacArthur

It’s been almost a year since I asked this question to these Christian “leaders” and the response has been nada. Zilch. Nothing. In fact, these sages of wisdom have blocked me on twitter and facebook. That’s ok, I don’t mind that. The fact is, I have asked an honest, valid, question to a teaching that […]

That 144,000 Thing in Revelation

Dan Phillips of the Pyromaniacs has a good question: He tweets: Explain this again: if the 144K in Rev. 7:4-8 are "spiritual Israel," then who are the innumerable crowds in v. 9? *Super*-spiritual Israel? — Dan Phillips (@BibChr) March 19, 2013 Let’s first look at the passage itself, Revelation 7:4-9: And I heard the number […]

Postmillennial Absurdity: New Heavens & Earth Are Already Here

Kenneth Gentry, Jr., is the managing editor of Postmillennialism.com and has written a most interesting article regarding Isaiah 65. In his post, Bro. Gentry tells us that the new heavens and the new earth are already present in history. They exist now. While I have dealt with Isaiah 65 before, this is a teaching which […]

Rebuke and Correct Me–If I’m Wrong

I have taken a stand here at 5ptsalt. It has costs me, and I have no regrets. None whatsoever. I believe Scripture teaches that when Christ returns again, it is too late for repentance, too late for salvation, too late to cling by faith to the finished work of Christ alone. I believe and know […]

A Proper View of Dispensationalism

HT: Bryan Morgette

Why I Am Not A Postmillennialist

However one may define the eschatological viewpoint of postmillennialism, the common denominator of any definition is the idea that the alleged millennial age, or 1000 year reign of Christ, is one in which the entire world is progressively subdued by the church through the means of the preaching and acceptance of the gospel. In other […]

The Death of May 21st–Harold Camping’s Big Fat Lie

It’s well known that I am unashamedly Baptist and thus, not Lutheran, but, I really like this guy. From Worldview Everlasting (watch the video to the end): Worldview Everlasting feels fine taking on Harold Camping’s silly prophecies through the Anti-Apostate Apostate Family Christian Radio. Tune in, especially after May 21, if you’re really scared now […]

Reformed Theology Opposes John MacArthur

John MacArthur has a series of messages entitled “Why Every Calvinist Should Be a Premillennialist.” I don’t want to give the links, because I’d rather you not read them, but there it is. The transcriptions to his series are interesting, yes, but filled with non-biblical fancy and false presuppositions, which, needless to say is disappointing […]

Jesus Christ Is Israel

  It is written: Hosea 11:1 Matthew 2:14, 15 When Israel was a youth I loved him, and out of Egypt I called My Son. And he arose and took the Child and His mother by night, and departed for Egypt; and was there until the death of Herod, that what was spoken by the […]

Isaiah 35: Glorious Gospel, Millennial Problem

Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; [6] then shall the lame man leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute sing for joy. For waters break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert – Isaiah 35:5,6 (ESV) And the ransomed of […]

Jewish Fables – No Second Chance for Israel

…not devoting themselves to Jewish myths and the commands of people who turn away from the truth. – Titus 1:14 (ESV) The following is an excerpt from a wonderful work by Phillip Mauro entitled “The Hope of Israel”. Link to the entire work is available online in both HTML and PDF and can be found […]

Why the Early Church Finally Rejected Premillennialism

For over half of the Church’s history, from the fifth century through most of the Reformation and post-Reformation period, premillennial teaching was virtually non-existent. Such teaching was condemned by the Augsburg Confession, criticized by John Calvin. Only in the nineteenth century did such teaching resurface in popularity. Why is that? Charles Hill wrote some time […]

Egypt & The Evidence of Depravity

As many of you know, there is much going on in Egypt these days. My first thought is how many of the sensational, eschatologically obsessed will be jumping on this latest news event as some type of biblical sign of prophetic fulfillment. Phht, please. Look, Egypt has not been turned into a third world country […]

Oil, Israel & The Apocalypse

Dispensationalists say that there are no signs leading up to the rapture but there are signs leading up to the tribulation. Since the tribulation is supposed to occur right after the rapture, signs for the rapture would, by default, be signs for the tribulation as well. Throughout history, every major disaster has been touted as […]
