New Testament passages that Prophecy Pundits Avoid.
What many of us do not realize is that Revelation and Matthew 24 are not the only places that speak clearly about Jesus coming in judgment by AD 70.
Most of the New Testament letters also speak of the event that they knew was coming.
And it did. Just like they said, “Soon,” “at the door,” “at hand.”
Jared and I exegete the many instances in the many passages of the many New Testament books.
You’ll ask yourself, “Why haven’t I seen these passages in this light before?”

I was a co-host again on the show with Michael Heiser, Doug Van Dorn, Natalina, Doug Overmyer, and two guests, Josh Peck and Derek Gilbert.
We were recorded live at a Branson Conference on the topic: Isaac Newton’s view of Bible prophecy and his prediction of 2060.
But also, did you know he was an anti-Trinitarian?
This is a great one. We talk about the dangers of people thinking they are God’s chosen ones to interpret prophecy and how it is too easy these days to follow in Isaac Newton’s footsteps and think you have it all figured out, when in fact, you are wrong.
But we also talk about this fascinating brilliant scientist who changed the world with good science, but was a mixed bag of alchemy, esotericism and other strange beliefs.

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.
So, the latest conspiracy theory of Bible prophecy pundits is that September 23, 2017 will find an astronomical alignment predicted in Revelation 12 that will launch the End of Days. To be fair, not all prophecy geeks support this theory, but still, it is symbolic of the ongoing failure of all futurist End Times theories that plagues the history of Evangelical Christianity.
How are those Blood Moons working Out for You?
The basic theory is not worth the time, but I’ll quickly describe it (And, yes, there are many variations, so this is a generalization). It claims that the description of Revelation 12 is an astral prophecy that launches the rapture or other end times events leading to an “Antichrist” who claims to be the savior of our world that’s gone to hell in a hand basket. This Satanic figure masquerades as the Pope or Islamic mahdi, or whatever your idiosyncratic choice is, he makes a covenant with Israel, rebuilds the temple, reinstitutes the sacrifices, then breaks that covenant and turns on Israel, raises up the Beast and the mark of the Beast and leads all the nations into Armageddon against Jerusalem, where Jesus returns to stop it all.
This conspiracy theory has become so common, even godless secular people can recount it to you. I call it a conspiracy theory because if you examine history (see The Day and the Hour by Gummerlock) you’ll find this same kind of belief in every generation. Christians have claimed to be the final generation of the Last Days for centuries.
And they have always been wrong.
I know what you’re thinking. That doesn’t mean they are wrong now. Okay, here’s a prediction I’ll make. These new ones will be proven wrong too. How can I say this? because they are fundamentally misinterpreting Bible prophecies. Their scenario is not at all what the Scriptures are saying. More on that, later. Continue reading
