The Word of God

Presuppositions

Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!

  • The bible can interpret and is a witness to itself. The Holy Spirit is a key means to understanding the connectedness and larger context of scripture.
  • The book of the Revelation of Yeshua to John is not arranged in chronological chapters; chapters that are ordered numerically and follow a sequentially ordered set of events.
  • The book of Revelation provides detail on the ages following the inauguration of God’s kingdom on earth;
    • The establishment of Christ’s body of believers (time of the Gentiles) up until the time of the end (last days)
    • Through the period of the great tribulation
    • Into the period of God’s wrath
    • Followed by the 1000-year reign of Christ on earth (1 Corinthians 15:20-26)
    • Concluding in the end of the age; when the new heavens and new earth are prepared for the arrival of the throne of God brought down to earth
  • There is no “gap theory” necessary to explain the end time prophecy of Daniel. The Seventy Weeks prophecy speaks to the time of Christ.
  • The rider on the white horse of Revelation 6 is not Christ. Scripture provides sufficient evidence to recognize this as a deceiver seeking to appear as though he was Christ, yet he is in fact the servant of Satan.
  • Regarding the Authorship of the Fourth Gospel: Due to the dispute over the authorship of the Fourth Gospel, traditionally attributed to John, I will refer to this book as the Fourth Gospel. I have concluded on the side of such authors like J. Phillips (ISBN13: 978-0-9702687-3-0) who has shown conclusively John could not be the sole author and instead attribute primary authorship to Lazarus – the disciple whom Christ loved.
