Heaven, Earth, Sea in Temple Creation Sermon, Part 1

Here is a sermon (which we discussed afterwards) that I recently gave at our church. I’m splitting it up into a few parts.  Let’s start with the BIG picture of where we are in Biblical history. This is a timeline of Old Testament history in terms of Temples. Since we are reading through 1 Kings,Continue Reading

Did Jesus say He would come before His disciples evangelized Palestine?

Did Jesus say He would come before His disciples evangelized Palestine? What did Jesus mean when he said this? Was he being cryptic or speaking plainly?  Mat 10:23 When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next, for truly, I say to you, you will not have gone through all the towns ofContinue Reading

Galatians and the New Jerusalem

The other day at our church gathering, two friends and I talked about Galatians. They shared some thoughts about new perspectives on Paul, which are about a more Hebrew and contextual way of reading Paul than what has been typically done in Christianity. They asked us to try and understand Judaism on it’s own terms,Continue Reading

Was the Gospel Preached To All the World?

When you’re speaking with someone who is new to the topic of fulfilled eschatology, there is one objection that often comes up. It goes something like this, “Well the Parousia (coming of Jesus) could not have happened in 70AD because the Bible says the Gospel has to be preached to the whole world first.” AndContinue Reading

For Us and Our Salvation

It all happened. All for YOU. All for love. All for US and our salvation. God loved us so much that he made a way to live with us. To be together with us. To be present in our lives, to be ONE with us. He didn’t want to miss a thing. It wasn’t GodsContinue Reading

The Kingdom Is …Here!

Where is the Kingdom of God? The Kingdom is IN and AMONG us! Luke 11:20 But if it is by the finger of God that I cast out demons, then the Kingdom of God HAS COME upon you. Luke 17:20-21  (AMP) The Kingdom of God does NOT come with VISIBLE display, Nor will people say,Continue Reading

“Heavenly Jerusalem” Now!

Heavenly Jerusalem Now! From Galations 4 In Galations 4, Paul draws from the Old Testament story of Hagar and Sarah, allegorically, to describe NEW Covenantal Realities to his first century audience while the Temple was still standing. Here we see an explicit example of Paul teaching on a covenantal level. Remember the covenantal level isContinue Reading

A U.S. Map or A Covenant Map?

Have you ever wondered why literal readings of Genesis don’t match up with what science says about the age and origin of the earth? Have you also wondered why doomsday prophets are always wrong about their end-of-the-world predictions? The conclusions of these overly literal readings of the Bible will never match what we see aroundContinue Reading
