The Battle of Gog and Magog

And Esther said, The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman. Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen. Esther 7:6

Most “prophecy teachers” today place the battle of Gog and Magog just before, or at the very beginning, of the Tribulation Period. Others, however, have the battle of Armageddon first and the battle of Gog and Magog as the final conflict. Of course, being the contrarian that I am, I view and interpret this battle completely opposite from the popular consensus. I am a firm believer in interpreting Scripture in its appropriate context. In this scenario, the proper context is … Continue reading →

Understanding The Book of Revelation

The Book of Revelation

Comments from the webmaster: In my opinion this is one of the most insightful commentaries of the Book of Revelation I have ever read! There may be points that the reader will find disagreement with, but considering all the other numerous interpretations of the Book of Revelation that I have read, I hope you will nevertheless find Jim Gibson’s insights interesting and food for thought. In the light of history, they all sound to be reasonable interpretations to me. Introduction … Continue reading →

When Jesus Returns —what then?

The second coming of Christ

by Jim Gibson The second coming of Jesus has fascinated and inspired Christians for almost two thousand years. That great Apostle to the Gentiles, Paul, referred to this momentous event as the “blessed hope” in Titus 2:13. After showing himself to his disciples for forty days after his resurrection, Jesus gathered them together at a familiar place close to Jerusalem called Olivet. The last time they had met together on this mount was on that fateful night of Jesus’ betrayal … Continue reading →

What John Nelson Darby Taught About Daniel 9 vs. Prominent Bible Commentators

John Nelson Darby.

John Nelson Darby (18 November 1800 – 29 April 1882) was an Anglo-Irish Bible teacher, one of the influential figures among the original Plymouth Brethren and the founder of the Exclusive Brethren. He is considered to be the father of modern Dispensationalism and Futurism (“the Rapture” in the English vernacular).

The 70th Week of Daniel Delusion

70-weeks-copy

It was on December 13th, 2014, after 40 some years of study of eschatology, that I finally realized the 70th Week of Daniel is not part of the Endtime scenario! I am talking about Daniel 9:24-27 and especially the interpretation of verse 27. Daniel 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, … Continue reading →

Seven Events Evangelicals Think Will Happen But Won’t

Endtime delusions

My friend Luke shared the below with me. If you study Eschatology from the Bible, you should know that the following doctrines most evangelicals hold to be true are based on a false interpretation of Daniel 9:27, namely, the Antichrist will make a treaty with the Jews and Israel for a 7 year period during which he will allow the Jews to rebuild the temple of Solomon. Please know that this doctrine was created by a Jesuit priest circa 1585, … Continue reading →

Preterism, Futurism, Historicism – 3 Schools of Interpretation of Bible Prophecy

Henry Grattan Guinness - (11 August 1835 – 21 June 1910), an Irish Protestant Christian preacher, evangelist and author.

I consider this article a key resource to understand why and how eschatology as understood by the evangelical world today is all messed up! If you are waiting for the “rise of the Antichrist” I highly urge you to read this! It is not long. I copied it from a 10 page PDF file somebody either sent me or I found on the Internet. It quotes a lot from an author who I highly regard, Henry Grattan Guiness, who wrote … Continue reading →

Dispensationalism and its influence on Eschatology

dispensationalism

My new friends from 2014 have often used theological term “dispensationalism” in their conversations with me but until recently the meaning of this word has been nebulous in my mind. I think it most Christians today don’t know what it means either even though they believe the doctrines that sprang from it. Below is text edited from http://regal-network.com/dispensationalism/ Dispensationalism is a method of Bible interpretation which was first devised by John Nelson Darby (1800-1882), and later formulated by the controversial … Continue reading →

Gog and Magog identified: Turkey, NOT Russia!

Map of Gog

I used to believe that Gog and Magog which invades Israel as depicted in Ezekiel chapter 38 is Russia. This is a popular belief taught by famous evangelists and Bible teachers such as Chuck Missler. But from December 13, 2014 when I learned that Daniel 9:27 is referring to Jesus Christ, not the Antichrist as I was taught, and when I learned that today’s misinterpretation of Daniel 9:27 was formulated by a Jesuit priest named Francesco Ribera in 1585 for … Continue reading →

Forefathers of the Faith Exposed the REAL Antichrist

Four Antichrists

Most Protestants today believe that the Antichrist will arise in the future. Many think of him as a person who comes out of nowhere, likely a Jew, and who unites the world under a one world government. Little do they know that this is exactly what the Pope and leadership of the Roman Catholic church want them to think! Folks, the Antichrist has been around from the Time of the Apostle John, and one world government already exists! I used … Continue reading →

Email to a friend who holds the correct interpretation of Daniel 9:27

Recently I learned that a Christian brother named Luke, a member of my fellowship, The Family International, came to the same conclusions as I did about Christ fulfilling the prophecy of Daniel 9:27. He shared it with other members and got many favorable responses. But it seems to me he may not know the complete background why the false doctrine of a future Antichrist making a 7 year covenant with the Jews came to be. And it seems he is … Continue reading →

Summary of revised interpretations of some prophetic Scripture

In December 2014, I learned the interpretation of Daniel 9:27 which is held by mainstream Protestant seminaries today was cooked up circa 1585 by a Jesuit priest named Francesco Ribera! He was commission by the Pope to invent theology that would get the Protestants to stop looking at the papacy, the Pope, as Antichrist.Today most Christians think of Antichrist as a sole individual who rules the world for 7 years just before the return of Jesus Christ. This is exactly … Continue reading →

Comparison of the top 7 popular Bible translations of Daniel 9 verses 4 and 27 to the KJV

King James Version KJV

This article lists the 8 top selling Bible translations in the USA. The KJV is ranked number 2. Do they all teach the same things about the prophecy of the 70th Week of Daniel? I consider the misinterpretation of Daniel 9:27 the very reason of false Endtime doctrines in the Church today! Why? Because most contemporary Protestant evangelicals believe the “he” of Daniel 9:27 is the Antichrist, a secular humanist who makes an Endtime treaty with the Jews who reconstruct … Continue reading →

What early Protestants had to say about the 70th Week of Daniel

Daniel 9:27

Daniel 9:24-27 is the famous “Seventy weeks” prophecy of the Book of Daniel. Most contemporary theologians and Bible scholars agree that verses 24 to 26 are talking about the Messiah, Jesus Christ, but they say the final “week” or seven years has not happened yet but will be the last seven years just before the return of Christ. They also say that the “he” of verse 27 is the future Antichrist and the “covenant with many for one week” is … Continue reading →
