      • And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away the people.And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray.And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land.And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them.But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out:For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.

        For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.

Kate Bowler



KATE BOWLER – Historian,  Author,  Human
Kate Bowler is the author of Blessed: A History of the American Prosperity Gospel. She teaches North American Christianity at Duke Divinity School in Durham, North Carolina. As the child of two professors that was probably a foregone conclusion, but she stubbornly persists in her belief in free will. She grew up in the Canadian prairie city of Winnipeg with an unhealthy interest in religion and popular culture. By the time she had finished her Master’s degree, she was already devoted to her first book project studying the American prosperity gospel. She spent a decade traveling the United States and Canada visiting megachurches, archives, television studios, revivals and Christian theme parks interviewing leaders and followers of the prosperity gospel.

cspanHer second book, tentatively called Co-Pastor: Women and Power in American Megaministry, tells the modern history of celebrity wives. In a culture divided about whether women should Lean In or opt out, Christian women reach for spiritual stardom and many have succeeded in re-making popular religion into a woman’s playground. She recently received a Louisville sabbatical fellowship and a travel grant from the American Academy of Religion to research, write and drink coffee in 2016-2017.

    For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

Islamic AntiChrist?


As someone who wastes a lot of time on YouTube, I have listened in on a couple of videos that postulate the “Islamic AntiChrist” narrative.


I think it is important to acknowledge before hand that the listed videos contain strong and potentially offensive comments and rebuttals.

In my personal life, I really do not condone strong words and so I share very, very, very reluctantly.

The subject matter is emotional and some think they can only be addressed vehemently.

I do not share that tone.

Yet, I think to journey and be invited into past writings and discussions on this topic can bear fruit in so many ways.

First, as they are hour or so long oral arguments, one can gain comprehensive knowledge that might take longer to glean from books.

Secondly, personally, I have taking in other videos from the panel, and so I am familiar with the delivery and attuned to tuning out viewpoints and arguments that I do not share.

And, thirdly,  “But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.” – Deuteronomy 4:29.

In essence, there is a requirement and prerequisite for finding God.

And, so I hope these videos are only “ledgers on your leaderboard“.

There is a cost to leadership as there is forbearance for intimacy.



With that disclaimer out of way, let us return to our post’s topic.

And, that is that there are videos that float the idea of an Islamic AntiChrist.

Yet, there are dissenting voices, as well.

Here are some of them:

  1. Chris White
    • Islamic Antichrist Debunked: The Mahdi Origins ( Video posted on March 20, 2015 )
  2. Jacob Prasch
    • Jacob Prasch The Islamic Antichrist March 21 2016 – Andrew R ( Video posted on March 21, 2016 )

Interestingly, Jacob’s video was posted almost a year to the date on which Chris White’s video was posted.

Paul’s farewell to the Ephesians

Here is Paul’s farewell to the Ephesians:

…Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men.
For I did not shrink back from declaring to you the whole will of God.
Keep watch over yourselves and the entire flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers.
Be shepherds of the church of God, which He purchased with His own blood.…
( Acts 20-28 )


And a branch from his roots will bear fruit.
The Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him, The spirit of wisdom and understanding, The spirit of counsel and strength, The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD.
And He will delight in the fear of the LORD, And He will not judge by what His eyes see, Nor make a decision by what His ears hear;…
( Isaiah 11:1-3 )

Word of Truth

The Lord’s Approved Workman
Remind the believers of these things, charging them before God to avoid quarreling over words; this is in no way profitable, and leads its listeners to ruin.
Make every effort to present yourself approved to God, an unashamed workman who accurately handles the word of truth.
But avoid irreverent and empty chatter, which will only lead to more ungodliness,…

( 2 Timothy 2:14-16 )

Prayer for the Disciples
…They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.
Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth.
As You sent Me into the world, I have also sent them into the world.…
( John 17:16-18 )

The Sabbath Rest
…For whoever enters God’s rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from His.
For the word of God is living and active. … it pierces even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow.
It is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.…
( Hebrews 4:10-12 )

Continue in Him ….

  • I have written these things to you about those who are trying to deceive you.  
    And as for you, the anointing you received from Him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you.
    But just as His true and genuine anointing teaches you about all things, so remain in Him as you have been taught.
    1 John 2:26-28 )
  • But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers.
    ( Matthew 23:8 )
  • It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God. Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from him comes to me.”
    ( John 6:45 )
  • Evil men do not understand justice, But those who seek the LORD understand all things.
    ( Proverbs 28:5 )
  • the Spirit of truth. The world cannot receive Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you do know Him, for He abides with you and He will be in you.

Jacob Prasch – Gifts of the Spirit


Brother Jacob Prasch places the third person of the trinity, the Holy Spirit, on the stand and delivers a cross examination.


Before espousing on Jacob’s work let us see what area of study to place it in.

As always, Wikipedia equips us.


Pneumatology is the study of spiritual beings and phenomena, especially the spiritual aspect of human beings and the interactions between humans and God. Pneuma (πνεῦμα) is Greek for “breath”, which metaphorically describes a non-material being or influence. Pneumatology as the study of the spirit is to be distinguished from psychology, the study of the soul. As many religious denominations do not distinguish between soul and spirit, this has been somewhat problematic.

Pneumatology (Christianity)

In Christian theology pneumatology refers to the study of the Holy Spirit. Pneuma (πνεῦμα) is Greek for “breath”, which metaphorically describes a non-material being or influence. The English word comes from two Greek words: πνευμα (pneuma, spirit) and λογος (logos, teaching about). Pneumatology would normally include study of the person of the Holy Spirit, and the works of the Holy Spirit. This latter category would normally include Christian teachings on new birth, spiritual gifts (charismata), Spirit-baptism, sanctification, the inspiration of prophets, and the indwelling of the Holy Trinity (which in itself covers many different aspects). Different Christian denominations have different theological approaches.

Areas Covered


Western Interpretation

With our western mind, we usually look at them based on how they operate

  1. 1st Corinthians 12
    • Utterance – Tongue
    • Inspiration
    • Power – Healing
  2. Ephesians 4
  3. Romans 12:6

Jacob’s Examination

But, maybe we should look at them based on their aim/purpose:

Equip the Church to replay ministry of Jesus

  1. Mark 16:17-18
    • And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.
  2. Greater works than me shall you do
  3. Numerically the following did more work
    • Charles Spurgeon
    • Billy Graham


  1. 1st Corinthians 12:14-31
    • Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? Now eagerly desire the greater gifts.
  2. Gifts
    • Witness
      • Let the redeemed of the Lord say so ( Psalm 107:2 )
      • With our lives and words
  3. Unity in Faith, Doctrine, and works
  4. Different Members working in Harmony
    • Hebrew 2:4
      • God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.
    • Psalm 133:1
      • How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!

Engender Faith

  1. Bearing Witness
  2. John 10:37
    • If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; but if I do them, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, so that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father.“…
  3. The word and the gifts

Gifts Tailored to Calling

Most want to know what gifts they have…But, it might be more prudent to determine what calling God has on one’s life.

Once one knows what God has in mind for he or she, then go about seeing which gifts one currently has, and which ones to ask and wait on.


… for the gospel according to the power of God, who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose ( 2nd Timothy 1: 9)



  • Word of Knowledge
    • Know condition of your flock
    • Example
      • Have a feel for members that are struggling and hurting
      • Through the spirit of revelation speak to congregant about sin in his life


  • Gift of miracle
    • Example
      • Especially when sent to far eastern countries in Asia and Africa


  • Prophecy
  • Wisdom


  1. Personal versus Body
    • I have the gift of Prophesy, No you have the Grace
    • Gifts given to the Body through a person
      • The gifts are not given to a person, they are given through a person
  2. Before identifying your gifts, first take a look at what God has called you to do – Teaching, “Pastor-ing” (  Pasturing ), Mission
  3. Holy Spirit
    • If a ministry lacks Power, it might be because of suppression of the Holy Spirit
    • On the other hand if it lacks holiness, it will lead to grieving the Holy Spirit
  4. Called and saved to help others to get there

Works Mentioned

There is plenty of rebuttal of the Charismatic Movement in general.

On the other hand, he came to the defense of:

  1. Dave Hunt ( The Berean Call )
    • Book
      • A woman Rides the Beast
