Paul talks about the new ‘Left Behind’ film and examines the claims that the Pre-tribulation Rapture can be found in the scriptures. What is the influence of the secret rapture theology on the church? Are dispenationalism and futurism biblical?
Paul looks at Daniel 9:24-27 which is the foundation text of scripture used to prove that there is a 7 year tribulation period ahead. What does the text actually teach? Are Dispensationalists correct on Daniel’s 70th week or are they seeing something that is not there? Does Daniel 9:27 talk about the antichrist or Christ when it says ‘And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week…’? Is futurism Biblical? These and other issues will be looked at in this show.
Who are the children of Abraham today? What future has the modern state of Israel according to the Word of God? How does this impact how we look at Dispensationalist theology and Reformed theology?
“Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” –Genesis 12:1-3
Should we expect a future temple or a third temple in Jerusalem? What is the ‘Temple of God’ in 2 Thessalonians 2:4? Who are the temple of God today in the new covenant? What are the implications of this on dispensational theology?
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”
–2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
“Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he spake of the temple of his body.”
“Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.”
“Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”
Paul discusses the Kingdom of God from a Biblical perspective and critiques the dispensationalist understanding of the term. Which view on the Kingdom of God is correct?
“And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.”
“Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son”
