The Study of Eschatology

The Study of EschatologyThe Study of Eschatology

Welcome to the study of Eschatology. If you are unfamiliar with the preterist view of eschatology these first five messages will give you a good introduction. “Preterist” means past in fulfillment. Preterists believe that all of Bible Prophecy has already been fulfilled in Christ and the on-going expansion of His Kingdom. If this view is new to you I would ask that you would openly and honestly look at what it is saying. Continue reading

Osama Bin Laden: “Our terrorism is a good accepted terrorism, because it’s against America, it’s for the purpose of defeating oppression so America would stop supporting Israel, who is killing our children.”

Does Eschatology Matter? | AUDIO

On July 11, I spoke on the subject of how to share the preterist view. In that message I asked the question, “Is eschatology important?” Does it really matter what your view on the second coming is? Will it somehow impact your life? In answer to that question I gave four reasons why your view of eschatology matters. They were:

  1. Eschatology is a major theological issue in the Scriptures.
  2. Salvation is tied to eschatology.
  3. Israel!
  4. It affects your world view. Continue reading

What verse are we studying today in Colossians? If we were studying Colossians, we would be on 3:18, which basically says, “Wives, submit.” Since so many people are on vacation this week, I thought I’d wait until next week to cover that verse. Continue reading

Have you ever wondered why it is that two men can read the same passage of scripture and come up with two totally different interpretations? Or why two men can read the same Bible and yet see things so differently? Two men who love God and yet see the same scripture in two different ways. Is it that one of them is stubborn or unreasonable? No, it is because each of us has within us paradigms of what life is really all about. The word paradigm means a model or a map. We look at life through our paradigms. Inside each of us is a map or model of what life ought to be like. Our paradigms are representations of life. We all have them, and we all have paradigms of eschatology. Eschatology is a word that frightens people, they don’t understand it so they are afraid of it. When I talk about eschatology, I am not talking about the end of time, but the time of the end. There is a very large difference between those two ideas. Eschatology is the doctrine of last things but it is the last things of God’s plan to redeem us, not the last things of planet earth. Continue reading

Paedobaptism - BaptismPaedobaptism? – Part 2 of 2

Hebrews 8:6-10
12/19/1999

In our last message on Paedobaptism, we talked about the fact that we at Berean Bible Church are Reformed, that is we consider ourselves to stand theologically with those churches of the Protestant Reformation of the sixteenth century.

Although we stand with the Reformers on the sovereignty of God and many other areas, we depart from them on the issue of infant baptism. Now, the question that is asked is, “Can you hold to the rich tradition of reformed theology, which involves in it paedobaptism, and yet maintain believer’s baptism?” I think we can, because I think the Scriptures do. The Bible teaches the doctrines that the Reformed faith holds to, but it does not teach infant baptism. In being Reformed and yet practicing believer’s baptism, we are not trying to be different, but we are trying to be true to the Word of God. If we could be convinced from Scripture that infant baptism was correct, we would immediately adopt it. Continue reading

Although labels are sometimes detrimental, they are occasionally helpful in identifying the major beliefs for which a particular church stands. While the following labels or terms are not exhaustive of the particular beliefs adhered to by our church, we hope that they are helpful in understanding us better. Continue reading

Leviticus 23:33-44

We are studying the Feasts of Yahweh found in Leviticus 23:

‘These are the appointed times of the LORD, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at the times appointed for them. Leviticus 23:4 NASB

The words “holy convocations” is the Hebrew miqra, which means: “rehearsal.” The Feasts of Yahweh were appointed times of worship for Israel that would serve as “dress rehearsals” of prophetic events that were to happen in the future. Through these Feasts Yahweh was showing Israel what He was going to do. They were pictures of their coming Messiah and His work. These Feasts, as we have taught, were both literal Feasts celebrated in Israel every year and TYPES of God’s prophetic calendar of events for the Church. Continue reading
