‘Gary DeMar Does Not Understand Biblical Eschatology’

That’s what someone on Facebook said about me after reading an article I posted. It may be true that I don’t understand biblical eschatology but regurgitating dispensational talking points will not prove the assertion. What will prove it is by searching the Scriptures daily to see if what I claim the Bible teaches is true […]

Welcome to My World of Dealing with Bible Prophecy ‘Experts’

I don’t claim to be a Bible prophecy expert. All I claim to be is someone who has looked at Bible prophecy passages and compared them with other similar passages. I’ve done this for more than 40 years. One critic of a video I posted was critical of my comments claiming he had studied Bible […]

Proof That Facts and Sound Arguments Aren’t Always Persuasive

Facts do not come with interpretation tags, telling us how to view them. . . . Both sides haggle over the facts. Both sides search for new facts to add to their arsenals. Both sides raise accusations, yet it’s a rare day indeed when both sides acknowledge that their differences stem from something much more […]

My Facebook Dialogue with a Confused Prophecy Seminary Graduate

After posting my article “Prophecy Writers Making Predictions Again,” it got quite a few comments. One particular commenter (TDS) was very frustrating to deal with because he refused to acknowledge facts that are not in dispute. This is not unusual. Facts don’t speak for themselves. They are always interpreted. I often see Christians going to […]

Some Brief Comments on Ron Rhodes’ New Book

I received Ron Rhodes’ new book New Babylon Rising: The Emerging End Times World Order the other day. Rhodes seems to be the go-to guy when it comes to prophetic speculation of the dispensational premillennial variety. I’ve dealt with some of them here and here. In 2010, Rhodes wrote The Coming Oil Storm: The Imminent […]

Early Documents in the Debate over Preterism: James the Just and 1 Clement

In his “History of Preterism” in the book The End-Time Controversy, Thomas Ice fails to deal with a number of historical sources that refute his claim that preterism was unknown among the early Church Fathers. In the final analysis, it’s the Bible that counts not the works of non-biblical writers. Even someone like Peter was […]

Early Documents in the Debate Over Preterism: The Didache

While I was visiting my friend Mike Britton (who’s been in a coma for more than a year), I spoke with a man who had been discipled by Mike. He’s been teaching a Bible study on prophecy. We spoke on the phone. He told me about a back-and-forth debate he was having with a friend. […]

Zechariah 13:7-9: Future Or Fulfilled?

Recently I responded to part of an interview that Dr. Michael Brown had with Dr. Brock Hollett about his book Debunking Preterism: How Over-Realized Eschatology Misses the Not Yet of Bible Prophecy. Preterism refers to prophecies that have already been fulfilled. For example, the Hebrew Bible includes many prophecies related to the coming of a […]

What Does the Bible Mean by the ‘Last Days’ and Jesus’ Coming?

The “coming” referred to by Jesus in John 21 refers, “not till his second coming to judge the quick and the dead at the last day” but the coming “in his power … on the Jewish nation, in the destruction of their city and temple by the Romans [in AD 70].”

What Does the Bible Mean When It Says Jesus Is Coming ‘Soon’ and that the ‘Time is Near’?

In a previous article, I commented on Ron Rhodes new book Jesus and the End Times. You can read it here. As I mentioned, I’ve dealt with most of the topics he covers in my books Last Days Madness, Wars and Rumors of Wars, and Is Jesus Coming Soon? In this article, I would like […]
