Trees Planted Along A River

Background

Our pastor was able to get together a few of us to visit our local Jail on Tuesday evening.

It was a very good service with hymn singing and a pastoral word from him.

Though only six of us went from our Church, but as other churches were invited and stayed behind for the entirety of our time, we were received in the fullness of he who gathered and sent his Church.

Preterism

Background

Going home yesterday ran into a gentleman who also happens to be a Christian Pastor.

We tracked into a discussion on Preterism.

What is Preterism?

Wikipedia

Link

Preterism is a Christian eschatological view that interprets some (partial preterism) or all (full preterism) prophecies of the Bible as events which have already happened. This school of thought interprets the Book of Daniel as referring to events that happened from the 7th century BC until the first century AD, while seeing the prophecies of Revelation as events that happened in the first century AD. Preterism holds that Ancient Israel finds its continuation or fulfillment in the Christian church at the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70.

Historical

A prominent preterist exposition of prophecy was written by the Jesuit Luis de Alcasar during the Counter Reformation. Moses Stuart noted that Alcasar’s preterist interpretation was of considerable benefit to the Roman Catholic Church during its arguments with Protestants, and preterism has been described in modern eschatological commentary as a Catholic defense against the Protestant Historicist view which identified the Roman Catholic Church as a persecuting apostasy.

Due to resistance by Protestant Historicists, the preterist view was slow to gain acceptance outside the Roman Catholic Church. Among Protestants it was first accepted by Hugo Grotius, a Dutch Protestant eager to establish common ground between Protestants and the Roman Catholic Church. His first attempt to do this was entitled ‘Commentary on Certain Texts Which Deal with Antichrist’ (1640), in which he attempted to argue that the texts relating to Antichrist had their fulfillment in the 1st century AD. This was not well received by Protestants, but Grotius was undeterred and in his next work, ‘Commentaries On The New Testament’ (1641–50), he expanded his preterist views to include the Olivet prophecy and Revelation.

 

Biblical Foundation

Hymenaeus and Philetus (2 Tim 2:17-18)

Full preterism is sometimes viewed as heretical, based upon the historic creeds of the church (which would exclude this view), and also from Biblical passages that condemn a past view of the Resurrection or the denial of a physical resurrection or transformation of the body — doctrines which most Christians believe to be essential to the faith. Critics of full preterism point to the Apostle Paul’s condemnation of the doctrine of Hymenaeus and Philetus (2 Tim 2:17-18), which they regard as analogous to full preterism. Adherents of full preterism, however, dispute this assertion by pointing out that Paul’s condemnation was written during a time in which (their idea of) the Resurrection was still in the future (i.e., pre-AD 70). Their critics assert that if the Resurrection has not yet happened, then the condemnation would still apply.

Debunking Preterism: How Over-Realized Eschatology Misses the Not Yet of Bible Prophecy

Amazon
Link
By 2013, he had finished writing a book defending preterism and was scheduled to be a conference speaker at a preterist prophecy conference. However, on the very night that he received the first box of 100 books from his publisher, the Lord spoke to his heart to reexamine the biblical doctrine of the resurrection of the dead, which led him to repent of his involvement with preterism.

In 2017, God placed a fresh burden on Dr. Hollett’s heart to write a book that sets forth a proper biblical eschatology and a roadmap for refuting preterism. He wrote Debunking Preterism: How Over-realized Eschatology Misses the “Not Yet” of Bible Prophecy in only three months, sensing a prophetic urgency regarding the project. Debunking Preterism will undoubtedly become the gold standard on the topic of preterism. The book is replete with a wealth of illustrative figures and comparative charts that reinforce its main concepts. Special emphasis is placed upon a proper understanding of the biblical time statements and the “already and not yet” principle of eschatology.

 

Problematic

To me there are various issues with a Preterism view.

  1. Boxing
    • It boxes God into a strong timeline
    • It boxes jesus into a strong timeline
      • It argues Jesus came back in AD 70
  2. Temple Destruction
    • It says that people already flee the temple and there is no significance into a new Temple
  3. Audience
    • It teaches that Jesus was speaking to a particular focus group and not to generations thereafter
  4. Jewish State
    • It could lead to ambiguity about the role  of an actual Jewish state
  5. Millennium Timeline
    • Verses
      • Verse ( Revelations 20:1-3)
        • And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain.
          He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.
          He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.
    • Questions
      • Will there be an actual Millennium Age
      • Or is it only Symbolic
  6. Replacement Theology
    • Stairway into replacement Theology?
    • Has God promises of Land and Davidic Rule taken place, nullified, or will occur at a later time

Summary

It is one thing to listen to discussions against a straw man.  But, when someone actually believes some of these things, it gives Christianity flesh.

 

Revelations 6:6 – “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”

Spiritual Meaning of REVELATION 6:6
Bible Meanings
Link

 

A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny

  1. A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny, signifies because the estimation of good and truth is so small as to be scarcely anything. These are signified because by “a measure (choenix)” which was the measure and the quantity measured, is signified quality, as in ; by “wheat” and “barley” is signified good and truth; and by a penny (denarius) which is a very small coin, that they are held in little or no estimation. It is said “three” measures of barley, because “three” signify all, and are predicated of truths.
  2. The reason why “wheat” and “barley” signify good and truth, here the good and truth of the church from the Word, is, because all things which belong to the field and the vineyard, signify such things as are of the church, because “a field” signifies the church as to good and truth thence, and “a vineyard,” the church as to truth and good therefrom; therefore where these are mentioned in the Word
  3. Joel
    • the angels, who perceive all things spiritually, understand nothing else; as in Joel:–
    • The field is wasted, the land mourneth; for the corn is wasted; the must is dried up, the oil languisheth. Be ye ashamed, O ye husbandmen; howl, O ye vine dressers, for the wheat and the barley; because the harvest of the field is perished ( Joel 1:10-12 ).
  4. Matthew
    • All these things signify such things as are of the church. That “wheat” and “barley” signify the good and truth of the church, may be seen from these passages:–
    • John saith concerning Jesus, that He will gather the wheat into the barn, and burn up the chaff with fire (Matt. 3:11, 12).
    • Jesus said, Let the tares and the wheat grow together, and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, to burn, but gather the wheat into My barn (Matt. 13:24-30).
  5. Isaiah
    • I have heard the consummation and decision from Jehovah God; he layeth up the measured wheat, and the appointed barley; for his God doth instruct him to judgment, and doth teach him (Isa. 28:22, 25, 26).
  6. Deuteronomy
    • Jehovah shall lead thee to a land of wheat and barley (Deut. 8:7, 8).
    • “A land of wheat and barley” here is the land of Canaan, by which the church is signified.
  7. Jeremiah
    • They shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of Jehovah, for wheat and must (Jer. 31:12).
  8. Jehovah shall satiate thee with the fat of wheat (Deut. 32:13, 14; Psalm. 81:16; 147:14).
  9. Ezekiel
    • Jehovah said to the prophet Ezekiel, that:–
      • He should make himself cakes of barley mixed with dung, and eat them (Ezek. 4:12, 15).
  10. Hosea
    • And to the prophet Hosea that:–
      • He should take a woman an adulteress; whom be bought for a homer of barley, and half a homer of barley (Hosea 3:1, 2).

 

And, hurt not the oil and wine

And hurt not the oil and the wine, signifies that it is provided by the Lord that the holy goods and truths, which lie interiorly concealed in the Word, shall not be violated and profaned. “Oil” signifies the good of love, and “wine” truth from that good, therefore “oil” signifies holy good, and “wine” holy truth; “hurt them not,” signifies that it is provided by the Lord that they shall not be violated and profaned; for this was heard “from the midst of the four animals,” thus from the Lord ; what is said by the Lord the same is also provided for by Him; that it is provided, may be seen in . That “oil” signifies the good of love, will be seen below; but that “wine” signifies truth from that good, is evident from the following passages:–

  1. Isaiah
    • Everyone that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no silver, come ye, buy and eat, yea come, buy wine and milk without silver (Isa. 55:1).
  2. Joel and Amos
    • And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down must, and the hills shall flow with milk (Joel 3:18; Amos 9:13, 14).
  3. Jeremiah
    • And joy is taken away from Carmel, and in the vineyards there shall be no singing; wine shall not be trodden in the wine-press, I have made their shouting to cease (Isa. 16:10; Jer. 48:32, 33).
      • By “Carmel” is signified the spiritual church, because vineyards were there.
  4. Joel
    • Howl, all ye drinkers of wine, because of the must; for it is cut off from your mouth; howl, O ye vine dressers (Joel 1:5, 10, 11).
  5. Nearly the same words occur in (Hosea 9:2, 3; Zephaniah 1:13; Lamentations 2:11, 12; Micah 6:15; Amos 5:11; Isaiah 24:6, 7, 9, 11.
  6. He washeth his garments in wine and his covering in the blood of grapes; his eyes are red from wine (Gen. 49:11, 12).
    • These things are concerning the Lord; “wine” signifies Divine truth. This is the reason why the Holy Supper was instituted by the Lord, in which the bread signifies the Lord as to the Divine good, and the wine the Lord as to the Divine truth, and with the recipients the bread signifies holy good, and the wine, holy truth, from the Lord; therefore He said:–
    • I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this product of the vine, until the day when I shall drink it with you in My Father’s kingdom (Matt. 26:29; Luke 22:18).
  7. Melchizedek
    • Because “bread and wine” had this signification, therefore, also:–
      • Melchizedek, going to meet Abram, brought forth bread and wine, and he was the priest of the most high God, and he blessed Abram (Gen. 14:18, 19).
  8. Similar is the signification of the meal-offering and drink-offering, in the sacrifices, concerning which see (Exodus 29:40; Leviticus 23:12, 13, 18, 19; Numbers 15:2-15; 28:6, 7, 18; 29:1-7). The meal-offering was of fine Sour of wheat, and was therefore instead of bread, and the drink-offering was of wine. From which it may appear what is signified by these words of the Lord:–
  9. Matthew & Luke
    • Neither do men put new wine into old bottles, but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved (Matt. 9:17; Luke 5:37).
  10. “New wine” is the Divine truth of the New Testament, thus of the new church, and “old wine” is the Divine truth of the Old Testament, thus of the old church. Similar is the signification of these words of the Lord at the marriage in Cana of Galilee:-
    • Every man at first setteth forth good wine, and when men have had enough, the worse; thou hast kept the good wine until now (John 2:1-10).
  11. The Good Samaritan
    • The like is also signified by “wine” in the Lord‘s parable of the man that was wounded by robbers, that:–
    • The Samaritan poured oil and wine into his wounds (Luke 10:33, 34).
    • For by him that was “wounded by robbers,” are meant they who are spiritually wounded by the Jews by evils and falsities, to whom the Samaritan gave assistance “by pouring in oil and wine” into his wounds, that is, by teaching good and truth, and, so far as he was able, by healing.
    • Holy truth is also signified by “must” and “wine” in other parts of the Word (Isaiah 1:21, 22; 25:6; 36:17; Hosea 7:4, 5, 14; 14:6-8; Amos 2:8; Zechariah 9:15, 17; Psalms 104:14, 15). Hence it is that “a vineyard,” in the Word, signifies a church that is in truths from the Lord.
  12. That “wine” signifies holy truth, may also appear from its opposite sense, in which it signifies truth falsied and profaned; as in these passages:–
    • Whoredom, and wine, and must, occupy the heart. Their wise has failed, they have committed whoredom continually (Hos. 4:11, 17, 18).
    • “Whoredom” signifies the falsification of truth, as do “wine and must” here.
    • In the hand of Jehovah is a cup, and He hath mixed it with wine; He hath filled it with mixture, and poureth it out, and the dregs of it all the wicked of the earth suck out and drink (Psalm. 75:8).
    • Babylon is a cup of gold in the hand of Jehovah that maketh all the earth drunken; the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore they are insane (Jer. 2:7).
    • Babylon hath fallen, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the anger of her whoredom. If anyone adore the beast, he shall drink of the wine of the anger of God, which is prepared unmixed in the cup of the anger of God (Apoc. 14:8-10).
    • Babylon hath made all nations drink of the wine of her whoredom (Apoc. 18:3).
    • Great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fury of the anger of God (Apoc. 16:19).
    • The inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her whoredom (Apoc. 17:1, 2).
    • By the wine which Belshazzar, king of Babylon, and his magnates, and wives, and concubines, drank out of the vessels of the temple of Jerusalem, and at the same time:–
    • They praised the gods of gold, and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood, and of stone (Dan. 5:2-4),
    • nothing else is meant than the holy truth of the Word and of the church profaned. Wherefore the writing then appeared upon the wall, and the king was slain that night (Dan. 5:25, 30). “Wine” signifies truth falsified also in (Isaiah 5:11, 12, 21, 22; 28:1, 3, 7; 29:9; 56:11, 12; Jeremiah 13:12; 23:9, 10). The same is signified by the drink-offering which they offered to idols (Isaiah 65:11; 57:6; Jeremiah 7:18; 44:17-19; Ezekiel 20:28; Deuteronomy 32:38). That “wine” signifies holy truth, and, in the opposite sense, truth profaned, is from correspondence; for the angels, who perceive all things spiritually, understand nothing else, when man reads “wine” in the Word; such a correspondence is there between the natural thoughts of men and the spiritual thoughts of angels. It is similar with the wine in the Holy Supper, and hence it is, that introduction into heaven is effected by the Holy Supper (n. 224).

  7. Witnessing to All Nations, yet fall away ( Matthew 24:10-12 )
    • At that time many will fall away and will betray and hate one another
    • and many false prophets will arise and mislead many.

  9. Blood Moon?
  10. Vices
    • Forsaken grammatical interpretation of scripture
    • Hate and avoid biblical studies and systematic theology
    • Mirror Emergent Church
    • What will the normal guy understand the scripture to mean
    • Wicked imagination leads people down the errored path
  11. Biblical Studies
    • Hebrew Language
      • Hebrew is very action oriented
      • Take a look at the Verbs first and then the Nouns
      • We have to look at what is being done first
      • And, then look at what that is applied to
    • What is being governed
      • Govern day from night
    • What are stars for
      • Stars given to navigate ocean
      • Liturgical calendar
        • Feast
        • Yon Kippur
        • Day of atonement
      • Accuracy
        • Can be calculated forward
        • And, backward
      • God saw the the fall
        • And, before creating man
        • He created the calendar first
  12. Use of calendar is a biblical no-no
    • Those who practice astrology as a way to align God’s calendar are on fool’s errand
  13. God never used Stars to indicate prophetic timeline
  14. Magi
    • Mixed up babylon and jewish religion
      • Daniel 2:1-2
        • In the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuchadnezzar had dreams; his spirit was troubled, and his sleep left him.
        • Then the king commanded that the magicians, the enchanters, the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans be summoned to tell the king his dreams.
    • Godly jews left behind after Babylon
    • Pagan Worship
    • Bethlehem Star
      • Is it an astronomical body?
      • Or something else
    • Prophet?
      • Why would a prophet who has a “Thus saith the Lord” need to use astronomical signs
  15. God’s Light
    • God was so mad at Herod and he did not want to have to say anything to him
    • And, he so his presence left the madi
    • Once the madi got back to their way the star’s returned
  16. Revelations
    • Apocalyptic Literature
      • God takes a complex subject and makes it accessible to Mac users like you and me
      • Instead of giving you complex instructions, he gives you symbolic data
      • Why No details
        • Promised
          • God has never promised he will give full details
        • Hostile Jamming
          • God is not bounded to detail
          • And, thus his hope can not be forfeited
          • He anticipates Hostile Jamming and so he encodes it

 

Summary

  1. Big Question Mark
    • New Heresy? Astro-Eschatology
    • Umbilical and frankly occultic amalgamation of babylon mystery
  2. Witnessing 24:11
    • Many will be disappointed
    • Not a minor movement
    • Many scandals
    • Twisting of the scripture
      • Sell books
      • Until of course the day after

Jacob Prasch

Times of the Jews, Gentiles and the Pentecostals – Jacob Prasch

  1. Isaiah 65:1
    “I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me; I was found by those who did not seek me.
    To a nation that did not call on my name, I said, ‘Here am I, here am I.’ ( Isaiah 65:1 )
  2. Isaiah 65:15
    You will leave your name for a curse to My chosen ones, And the Lord GOD will slay you.
    But My servants will be called by another name. ( Isaiah 65:15 )
  3. Parable of the Vineyard
    • Isaiah 5
  4. They will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive into all the nations.
    And Jerusalem will be trodden down by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. ( Luke 21:25 )
  5. I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, so that you will not be conceited:
    A hardening in part has come to Israel, until the full number of the Gentiles has come in( Luke 11:25 )

John Paul Jackson

John Paul Jackson Dreams And Mysteries Ministries 2016 – The Gift Revelation – Prophets & Psychics

  1. God speaks in a  multitude of ways and men do not perceive it
    1. Elihu Rebukes Job
      …”Why do you complain against Him That He does not give an account of all His doings?
      Indeed God speaks once, Or twice, yet no one notices it.
      In a dream, a vision of the night, When sound sleep falls on men, While they slumber in their beds,…”
      ( Job 33:13-15 )
  2. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
    …Then the angel told me to write, “Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.”
    And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.”
    So I fell at his feet to worship him. But he told me, “Do not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers who rely on the testimony of Jesus. Worship God!
    For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

    ( Revelation 19:10-11 )
  3. When God gives revelation is provides a light for everyone else to see

      • He lets us be comfortable with that that is uncertain
      • He lets us love that which is unformed
      • He gives us the ability to love others
      • He lets us help others to walk into their calling
      • Give us something to birth something that we have longed for all of our lives, but had no way to make happen
      • This is the kind of God that we serve
