Bryan, an assemblie of God pastor that is non denominational? well God still performs miracles :-) i raher would say you are multidenominational.
to proof this to you a few questions:

do you accept a denomination that proclaims the uniquely saved doctrine?

do you accept a church who rejects Jesus as God?

do you accept a group that is idolatring

if yes then indeed you are a nondenominationalist. if no you are a multi denominationalist.
---Andy on 4/6/09


Anne, I go to an Assemblies of God church, but my pastor is nondenominational and so am I. I have to give the Holy Spirit all of the credit for the things that I have learned over the last 8 years. Pastors and other preachers and believers have merely help to confirm what the Lord has been teaching me. All you have to do is read it, pray and fast, and begin to put the Lord's teachings into action. Jesus said that He ate of a meat that we know not of. His meat was to DO the will of the Father. If you don't work what your Daddy gave you, then He's not gonna give you any more to eat. Water others and you'll be watered! God will give you the increase! God bless!

Bryan~ A lot of the ways you interpret eschatology, is very similar to my interpretation. Do you partake in a particular ministry or church that teaches this interpretation of eschatology?

I believe the Pope will step up to the plate when the world turns against Israel. He will walk into the Temple at Jerusalem, declare himself to be Head of the Church (thus usurping Jesus Christ). Then we will know the end is near. Until then we are presently in the tribulation period or very nearly so. For some it has already happened.

We're living in the beginning of sorrows. We're beginning to witness the birth pains more rapidly and close together. Jesus is about to wake up His church for the final outpouring of the Holy Spirit. These are the days of the fullness of the Gentiles, so to provoke the Jews to jealousy, and so all of Israel shall be saved, as it is written! God is about to humble His people, so He can be glorified by His church! He's coming for a glorious bride! I believe these dead bones can live! I hear rain coming! These are the days of the latter rain, and it shall be much greater than the former! Jesus is about to pour out His Spirit in such abundance that it will make the day of Pentecost look like a mere drizzle!

Many unsaved dissers misapply the plain and detailed Scriptures. Let us see if the unlearned is correct in misapplying Daniel 11 to the dead Antiochus: "And at that time will Michael stand up, the great prince which stands watch over the children of your people: and at that time your people will be delivered, every one that will be found written in the Book. And many of those who sleep in the ground of dust will awake: some to life everlasting, and some to shame, to horror everlasting." Daniel 12:1,2. Nope, the rapture has not happened yet, so Antiochus is not and cannot be the AntiChrist spoken of in Daniel.
---Eloy on 1/29/09


The Lord says...

"in the last days, I will POUR out my spirit" (learn of the LIVING water"...not H2O baptism).

1 John 5:6 "He came by water and blood".

Water flowed from Christ's side at the cross so that we will "neither thirst" (Revelation 7:16).

Learn the "depths of God" (1 Corin. 2:10) and read the "word of truth" (bible, 2 Timothy 2:15, Ephes. 1:13) which is the introductory doctrine (Hebrews 6:1).

The bible is not an 'authority'...

Matthew 28:18
"ALL AUTHORITY in heaven and earth was given to..."...JESUS.

The unwillingness to believe these things is why many "will not endure sound doctrine".
---more_excellent_way on 1/26/09


There's not enough room here to explain and I don't have all the historical details, but Daniel 11: was foretelling what would happen, and what has since happened to Jerusalem and the area during the time of Antiochus IV Epiphanes, about 150-200 BC. There is evidence that the historical data coincides with the Daniel passage. To pull out a verse from Rev. and stick it in a passage in Daniel is poor exegesis. Even though in some cases different passages can go to together, it teaches a wrong procedure for those who are not as knowledgeable of the Scriptures.
Some of the Matt. can accurately be viewed as historical fact.
Concerning the preterist view, it raises more questions than it answers.

"Let him that has understanding"

666 is not the number of the "new creation", it is the number of the sixth day creation (man).

All throughout history, mankind has always taught and explained the three aspects of God according to the ways of man (3 sixes).

The result is that we have learned to love the bible instead of God.

Because we think and understand in terms of 'jargonspeak' (partisan terminology and nomenclature), we no longer are able to understand objective truth.

The widespread popularity of televangelists and megachurches is a telltale sign that these are "the last days" (MANY will not endure sound doctrine, and they REFUSE to love the truth, 2 Thessalonians 2:10).

Anti-Christ? That term isn't even IN Revelation! You mean 'Beast', right?
---Graham on 1/26/09


"So will come the king of the north, and pour out a siege mound, and seize a city fortified: And the arms of the south will not stand, nor people of his choice, for will not be strength to stand. And the God of his fathers he will not regard, and not the desire of woman, and not any god will he regard: for above all he will magnify himself. Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man, and his number, Six hundred sixty-six." Daniel 11:15,37+ Revelation 13:18. For signs: Please Read- Matthew 24:4-43. For Christian concern: Please Read- Matthew 24:44-51.
---Eloy on 1/26/09


I agree with Anne.
---Rod on 1/26/09


I am a firm believer in the last days. I have a four page article entitled "Last Days: Really Here or Really Hype?" on idea marketers. Jesus gave us not only the signs of the times, but also the final signs to watch for. That is what the article is about. Be blessed.

The Bible barely makes mention of the Anti-christ...why do we get so anxious about it?
---Anne on 1/7/09


the only way to find out who the anti- christ will be, is to be here when he shows up (Dan.9:27).
-
signs of Jesus coming: 1) Israel becoming a nation 1948 (Matt.24:32-33), 2) the Jews returning to Israel 1989 (Isa.43:5-6 & Ezek.39:27-28), 3) the nations seeking to bring peace in the middle east by political means, via dividing Israel (zechariah 12:2-3), 4) European Union, a revived Roman Empire began with the Treaty of Rome (multi global government, Dan.7:24 & Revel.17:12)

{i mention these because what Jesus mentioned of wars, famines, earthquakes, false christs, etc.. are so commonplace.}

I said before he was elected I thought "maybe" Obama could be the anti christ. Besides what everyone else has said--the anti christ will also be in his 40's when he gets into power--and Obama is in his 40's. I don't know if he is or not--only God knows--but I am definetly keeping a close eye on him. Either way, something is wrong with this man.
---cindy on 1/6/09


I'm not ruling out Obama. He does fit the profile of someone who could be molded into antichrist. I would really like him to state his views on Isreal instead of avoiding the subject. I feel with growing trouble in the middle east,(especially Isreal), Increased frequency and strength of natural disasters and global economic turmoil the end could be very near. I personally welcome the return on my Lord! However if Obama turns out to be genuine, more power to him and God bless!
---Stevi on 1/6/09


I believe that Barack Obama could be the antichrist. He has promised to be a bringer of peace, has middle eastern decent,plus everyone is excited about him, when he hasnt really done anything yet, he came out of no where, his name means "blessed",he's been a senator for just 3 years and is beating people who have had decades of experience. I'm not sure, but this is my personal belief.

Cindy- I don't recall calling it the bible. Think of how many advances in communications (commnion) have been made in the past 100 years. I could say that you are very "new age" because you follow the "new" testament. This would be "new" relative to the "old" testament, just like these days are "new" relative to the past 2000 years. Also I don't recall Jesus talking about hell and all those bad things. PEACE.

There is no anti-christ. The signs are everywhere, but The second coming is when you allow it. It will not be a big bang and then it's judgment day.

Every generation since Christ has believed themselves to be the last generation. It is fascinating that Jesus said about the end that "only the Father knows, not even me". A little paraphrasing. We can quit worrying about when the temple will be rebuilt, who the Beast is and on and on. Just have faith and leave the rest up to God.

Revelation 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must (SHORTLY) come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

Revelation 1:4 John to the (SEVEN CHURCHES which are in ASIA)

We find here that this was written to these specific Churches not to the Church in Jerusalem or Rome or any other at that time and these things did come to pass on these churches very quickly but they never knew what was happening because they rejected this word from John and claimed it heresy. It was not added to our bible until after 320AD. It has been misinterpreted ever since.

we've been living in the end times since Jesus ascended into heaven. He has not come because there is still work to be done. His ministry is continuing through us as modern christians. when God discides to bring the end of time and establish a new heaven and earth then he will do it when he feels like it. As for us we can't and shouldn't focus on that end but focus on Life in the Kingdom today and bringing others into that abundant life.

Pt. 4 However we must remember that as all of this unfolds our redemption draws nearer, & that system & its deceptive peace, prosperity, & comfort shall be destroyed in one hour as the wrath of God is poured out upon it.

Pt. 3...earth as the true God & author of their salvation.

The passage you refered to contains these verses

Re Luke 12 if you read the whole context (start in verse 49) Jesus seems to be talking about a present happening that they could not recognize even though it was right in their face. The comming of and pending sacrifice of the messiah and the righteous judgment of God on those who rejected him.

  • People's hearts have grown cold.
  • The absence of true love
  • Good is bad, bad is good.

I think so, yes, because of two reasons. 1.)according to the Mayan calendar, which has been right about 100% of its predictions so far,says that the end of the world is on 12-10-11. Also according to a Biblical prophet, not sure exactly who, he said that the pope we have now will be the last. It is very possible that these two predictions will line-up with each other because the current pope is fairly old and might possibly die, or his "reign" never run out by the time of 12-10-11

Attempts to pinpoint the return of the Lord are futile. Acts 1:7, "And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power." Luke 12:40, "Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not." The first century chruch was convinced that Jesus was coming right back.

kathr4453, God's TRUE people know that Righteousness and Peace will not REIGN on planet earth until JESUS Himself set's up His Kingdom here,and He don't need man's help to "set up"/ "bring in" HIS own Kingdom on earth,I too disagree with those who claim that THEY will "bring in" the Kingdom of Christ(the 1,000 year reign of Christ on earth succeeding the 7 year Tribulation/Armageddon),That isn't Biblical.
