Christ our High Priest is it forever?

 Christ Jesus our-great-high-priestIt has been argued recently by some ultra-hyper-cessationist preterists that Christ’s ministry as priest for sinners ended in AD 70.

The Bible, of course, says otherwise:

As God’s everlasting High Priest, Jesus saves and makes intercession for those who come to God through Him. He gives help, mercy, comfort, and grace to believers in their times of need, suffering, temptation, and failure (Heb. 2:18; 4:15-16; 7:25; 1 Jn. 2:1). Continue reading

Philip Mauro (1859-1952)The Seventy Weeks and the Great Tribulation

A Study of the Last Two Visions of Daniel,
and of the Olivet Discourse of the Lord Jesus Christ

by Philip Mauro

Written in 1921

“Writings and addresses on prophecy always excite interest, because they appeal to the element of curiosity which is prominent in human nature. But such writings and addresses are of benefit only so far as they rightly interpret the Scripture. In the case of unfulfilled prophecy this is oftentimes a matter of difficulty; while on the other hand writers on propheties and speculations, and even in flights of imagination. Much has been put forth as interpretation of prophecy which is utterly unproved, but which could not be disproved except, as in cases where dates have been set for the coming of Christ, by the event itself.”

Philip Mauro wrote these words just after the turn of the century. At this time, the popular Scofield Reference Bible had just appeared on the Christian book market with its claim to restore “Dispensational truth” to the Church. With great skill and readability, Mauro’s work aptly repudiates the “parenthesis theory” that has been perpetuated even in our own day by modern Dispensational writers on prophecy, and lays the foundation of what the biblical teaching concerning the destiny of the nation of Israel.

Elements 2 Peter 3

ELEMENTS 2 PETER 3

What Does Peter Mean by
the Passing Away of Heaven and Earth?
A Study of 2 Peter 3

By Gary DeMar and David Chilton

If there’s one passage of Scripture that is repeatedly brought up as an indictment against anyone who objects to modern-day prophetic speculation, it is 2 Peter 3:3–18. If you dispute with those who argue that all the signs around us indicate that we are living in the “last days,” then you are labeled a “scoffer” or a “mocker” (2 Peter 3:3). Continue reading
