I was saddened, though prepared, to hear of Dr. R.C. Sproul’s passing yesterday afternoon. Dr. Sproul had a tremendous impact on virtually every Reformed person, including every writer and scholar, that I know, including myself, and his life and work are greatly to be celebrated as a gift to the body of Christ. Our prayers […]
Prophetic speculation is rampant. Books dealing with the end times continue to flood the market. Is America part of Bible prophecy? What about Russia? Two recent books. Let’s not forget blood moons . . . earthquakes . . . ellipses . . . hurricanes . . . wars. Probably the most talked about and written […]
When we experience devastating natural disasters, people often ask, “Why”? Some blame or give credit to God. Others make political statements, like Jennifer Lawrence who said, “You’re watching these hurricanes now, and it’s really hard … not to feel Mother Nature’s rage or wrath.” There is no such thing as Mother Nature. Nature is a thing, not […]
Once again, prophecy prognosticators are predicting Jesus is going to wrap up everything in our generation because things are so bad the end must be near. A recent article by Britt Gillette on the Prophecy News Watch website says as much: “The signs of the Second Coming are all around us. When His disciples asked Jesus to […]
For more than 40 years I have been following the views of prophecy speculation and the claims made by people about end-of-the-world scenarios. People have short memories, or have no memory, about prophecy speculators who have assured an anxious public that Jesus would return by this or that date. His coming is always said to […]
“Apocalyptic thinking is in the air,” University of Connecticut psychologist Kenneth Ring said in 1990.1 It’s still in the air as we are learning from Franklin Graham, political commentator Erick Erickson of RedState.com, and the film reboot of Left Behind produced by Willie Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” fame. In a 2013 interview with end-time speculator […]
In the wake of Harold Camping’s rapture predictions, a local television station had Gary DeMar and several other local Christian leaders on to talk about this important issue. In this edition of Vantage Point you can watch Gary’s interview on the show. In future episodes we’ll share the panel discussion portion of the program.
Many pastors and modern prophecy writers teach that the Church will be raptured off the earth prior to a seven year tribulation. Where in the Bible is this found? Nowhere. Confused? Watch this edition of Vantage Point for an honest look at the “rapture”.
This article continues comments I made in a previous article on current prophetic interest in Egypt. Wilbur M. Smith notes in his 1957 book Egypt in Biblical Prophecy “that there are approximately 250 verses in the Old Testament which, at the time they were uttered, were prophecies of events yet to take place. . . […]
Will antichrist be Islamic, Roman, American? Is he one specific person or many people? Is he alive in the world right now? What does the Bible really say about antichrist? Come to American Vision’s National Prophecy Conference to learn more about this and many other Bible prophecy questions.
Speculation that we are in the last days has been around for a while. Through the decades leaders, from Mussolini to Hitler, have been put forth as the anti-christ and a sign that we are in the end times. Today is no different, Harold Camping is teaching that the rapture will occur May 21, 2011. […]
As this millennial decade comes to an end and North Korea is rattling its military sword, popular Christian writers will reach into their prophecy bags, appeal to the Bible, and tell us that the end is near. The more judicious ones don’t come right out and say Jesus’ coming will take place in “our generation”; […]
