My Midrash on Human Origins. An Article Interview with PeacefulScience.org

Did you know that Midrash is a well known way that ancient Jews retold Bible stories to their generation? Well, these guys picked up that I was following that ancient literary technique. Bravo!

I was grateful that, even though they do not agree with me on some important things, they were still willing to interview me about some things they thought were worthy of discussion in the Christian world.

Well done interview.

Josh Peck Podcast: Just What is a Preterist View of Bible Prophecy All About?

This is my most in-depth podcast interview on the subject of preterism and Bible Prophecy.

Josh Peck’s podcast, Peck Underground Church. It went five hours!

Josh is an enthusiastic and kind host who is gracious in disagreeing over issues like prophecy.

We talk all about my conversion out of Left Behindism, explicit passages that are an introduction to preterist interpretations, how we should treat those with whom we disagree over prophecy, Matthew 24, a little about Revelation, and we had a whole lotta fun!

You will too. You will be caught up in the fascinating pace of it all and will wonder, where did the hours go???

And then you will want to buy my books!

AK47 Podcast: All About Nephilim and the Divine Council in Brian Godawa’s Bestselling Series

I was on the AK47 Podcast, hosted by Aaron Gleason.

Aaron interviews bestselling author Brian Godawa and they discuss the weird stuff in the Bible. Brian has written several series of “Theological Novels” (Aaron, in his characteristically pretentious style describes them as “Didactic Christian Myth”) which explore the more bizarre (but scholarly accurate) aspects of the Old Testament. We discuss the book of Enoch, Giants, Angels, Demons, and other aspects of what Dr. Michael Heiser calls the Deuteronomy 32 worldview. Even the Epic of Gilgamesh comes up at one point. We talk alot about Michael Heiser and his work.

Podcast: From Nephilim to the Apocalypse. Lies Exposed, Truth Revealed

I had one of my favorite interviews by my new friends at The Not Too Dissident Future Podcast, Mel and Andy.

We talk about the Nephilim, the Unseen Realm, Giants, Leviathan, and transition to the End Times, why so many Christians get it so wrong and what Jesus really said about it.

The coolness is just beginning.

Listen to Part 1 here.

You’re going to love this one! They’re great interviewers.

Find Out Why Chronicles of the Nephilim & Apocalypse Dominate Amazon’s Top 10 Biblical Fiction

This is an un-retouched screen grab of Amazon’s Top 10 in Biblical Fiction.

7 out of 10 are Godawa’s Chronicles of the Nephilim or Chronicles of the Apocalypse.

The facts speak volumes for themselves.

Don’t you want to know why?

They’re fantastical, supernatural, theological, imaginative and very Biblical.

And readers are consuming the Chronicles with ravenous spiritual hunger.

Brian Godawa is a Christian and respected biblical author. The Chronicles deal with an amazing biblical storyline missed or ignored by many Christians: The War of the Seed. That’s the Seed of the Woman vs. the Seed of the Serpent. The supernatural story of Christ’s victory over the powers.

Here is what Bible scholar Michael Heiser says about the Nephilim Chronicles:

“A stirring tale of gods and men that confronts us with biblical reality through mythical fantasy. Noah Primeval is what Tolkien called “sanctifying myth” that we need in our own place and time.”
– Michael S. Heiser, PhD, Hebrew and Semitic Languages
Academic Editor, Logos Bible Software

Psalm 82: Part Five – The Watchers and the End of the Age

These posts are all excerpted from my newest booklet, Psalm 82: The Divine Council of the Gods, the Judgment of the Watchers and the Inheritance of the Nations. You can buy the booklet here.

In my previous posts (1,  2,  3,  4), I analyzed Psalm 82 to uncover the narrative of Christ’s victory over the powers. In it, we saw a reiteration of the Deuteronomy 32 worldview that depicted fallen Sons of God from Yahweh’s heavenly host being allotted the Gentile nations as an inheritance, while Yahweh kept Israel for his own inheritance. These Watchers over the nations were unjust in their governance, so Yahweh declared he would judge them with death through the resurrection of Messiah, which would take back the allotment from the Watchers and give it to Messiah to inherit the nations.

But if Jesus triumphed over the spiritual powers at the cross and then led them captive in a military style triumphal procession, then how is it that the New Testament speaks of an ongoing struggle with those heavenly principalities and powers for the Christian? Are these territorial powers still an issue for us today?

My short answer is that the principalities and powers over the nations are not an issue for us today, but they were in Paul’s day because when he wrote his New Testament letters, the victory of Christ had been legally inaugurated at the cross, resurrection and ascension, but was not historically consummated until the destruction of the earthly incarnation of the old covenant, the holy temple in Jerusalem in AD 70. That event was the historical completion of the spiritual truth begun a generation earlier.

Paul was writing in a transition period between covenants. The new had been spiritually inaugurated but not historically consummated until the old had been done away with in the earthly realm. The old covenant was fading out but had not yet vanished with the destruction of the historical temple. The book of Hebrews predicts this destruction as a “vanishing.”

Hebrews 8:13–9:9
In speaking of a new covenant, he makes the first one obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away. …By this the Holy Spirit indicates that the way into the [heavenly] holy places is not yet opened as long as the first section [earthly holy place] is still standing (which is symbolic for the present age).

That last parenthesis about the physical holy place being “symbolic of the present age” is in the text of Hebrews. I did not add it. the physical temple is a symbol of the old covenant age that was about to vanish away with the destruction of the temple.

Thus, the spiritual powers had lost their legal right to the Gentile nations at the complex of events that climaxed with the ascension of Jesus Christ. But their actual judgment of death in the fires of Gehenna did not occur until the consummation of the old covenant “present age” of the first century.

Many Christians assume that the “end of the age” or the “last days” is the end of the earth. Thus when Jesus speaks of casting sinners into the furnace of fire at the end of the age, they assume this has not yet happened. After all, does not Isaiah place the inheritance of the Gentiles in a future “last days”?

Isaiah 2:2
2 It shall come to pass in the last days that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be lifted up above the hills; and all the nations shall flow to it…

But I will show that the judgment of the Watchers in Psalm 82 occurs with the inheritance of the Gentiles which is actually begun in the book of Acts and solidified by AD 70 in the destruction of the temple. The “last days” occurred in the first century and they were the last days of the old covenant, not the last days of the entire earth.

Don’t read on unless you want your spiritual world rocked by this amazing biblical truth… Continue reading
