A Response to Don K. Preston: The Timing of the Coming of the Son of Man in the Book of Daniel

Hi all, I've been engaging in several preterist groups on Facebook recently in regards to my research on the prophecies of Daniel. In particular, I've been weighing in on the ongoing YouTube debate between Don Preston and William Vincent. In response to some challenges presented to me by Don, I've c...

What do the Fall of Babylon, Whirlwinds and Gatekeepers Have in Common?

Elsewhere, I've presented the argument that whirlwinds as symbols of God were central to understanding the symbolism underlying the historical events being predicted in the enigmatic passages of Daniel 11:36-45. I'd like to suggest that whirlwinds also play a role in uncovering some helpful observat...

Re: (Seemingly) strange applications of OT prophecy in the N

Hi Seeker, These passages are certainly bewildering. In truth, I persoanlly have yet to find many compelling, scholarly justifications for many of these OT quotations and allusions in the NT. Even the scholars who do venture to explain them vary greatly on their interpretation on many such examples....

Re: Why Couldn't Satan be Literally Imprisoned Now?

I'm not aware of any passages that completely eliminate the possibility that Satan's detention in the Abyss results in completely removing his influence from the world. But while largely preterist myself, unlike mainstream preterism and amillennialism, I do believe in an interpretation of the 1,000 ...

Hi Singalphile, Glad to hear you're comfortable with your current marital status. It's also exciting to hear of your interest in expanding your outreach.

Re: Does "Holy" Mean "Set Apart"?

Hi Singalphile, I think perhaps the reason some like R.C. Sproul may see the words for holiness as having a "primary" meaning apart from the moral character of God is due to some of the other words that also derive from these words for holiness. The word for 'holy' you put forth was 'qadosh' which a...

Re: The Afterlife

If Lazarus was not dead, that would have a profound impact on Christian teachings. I apologize if I was misleading. I did not mean to imply that Lazarus wasn't dead in any sense that would diminish the miraculous nature of his being raised. My comments were primarily regarding Matthew 27:52-53, not...

Re: The Afterlife

If Jesus was the firstborn from the dead, what was Lazarus? Was he not resurrected? I 'm sure I've heard an explanation but I don't recall. I’ve heard that called resuscitatihion, though I would think it would have to be more than that. Surely the bodies coming out of the graves in Matthew 27 were ...

Re: Why are we told about Egypt's taxes?

Hi Matt, Many people see Joseph as a type of Christ. I personally see this whole account as typolgoical of the Messianic age. I can elaborate more if you or anyone are interested but just to plant some seeds, some highlights to consider include: multiple redemptive-themed situations allusions to the...
