I figure if Jesus was premillennial, and his cousin was a Baptist, then that’s good enough for me. 🙂
Ok folks, here are some of my favorite tweets as everyone considers the Mayan calendar’s predictions…. Here’s a summary of the entire thing: Everywhere you go, people are making Apocalypse jokes like there’s no tomorrow. — Gene Clyatt (@Shinar_Squirrel) December 21, 2012 This is what I’m doing too! sitting here reading all of the #endoftheworldconfession […]
It seems that a this whole deal with some guy (Camping?) predicting a rapture today has become quite a distraction for many. Will you be found ministering to the lost and equipping the saints? Or will your Lord find your breathing out sarcasm, being sure that your Facebook status is the funniest or most biting?
So I ask: what will you are doing when Christ returns? Assuming His second advent is imminent (whether you believe in a rapture or not), will he find His servant busy doing His will?
Let’s consider Jesus’ own words of warning:

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. Wow! How can our finite minds even begin to comprehend this? Let’s face it, we only understand things on a limited level. What a contrast to God whose understanding is infinite – Ps 147:5. Jesus Christ has never changed, and never will. While we […]
Let’s assume there is a problem today. The problem is that not a lot of people seem to be getting saved. Can you play along? This article is for Christians only. I want brothers and sisters to consider what I am going to say because I believe it is important. Just thinking about it brings conviction to my soul. To be more specific, it brings me shame and distress. Thankfully, I don’t stay there long as I lay my sin at the foot of the cross and trust that Christ has wiped them away completely, but once in while He gives me an all-too-clear glimpse of my truly disgraceful sin nature and tendency to succumb to the flesh.
The sin I am going to talk about is the worst sin possible. It is the sin of unbelief. In fact, it is the only unforgivable sin, if committed fully against the Son of God, Jesus Christ. But for those of us who have had hearts regenerated by His Holy, Infinite Grace, unbelief still creeps in. Often is occurs in subtle and deceitful ways. In my case, and I believe in many others, it can be spawned by a misapplication of scripture. Not a misinterpretation or misunderstanding in this case, but a mis-applying of the often well-understood, clearly believed Truths.
For now, I need to establish some assumptions I will trust axiomatically for purposes of this post. These are not unprovable, but I’m going to choose not to prove them now. Additionally, if you are of a different ‘camp’ in this often disputed escatalogical argument, I’d encourage you to judge the content of the article NOT based on whether you agree with my view of end times, but rather, whether the statements I make do, in fact, logically follow from my assumptions, and whether the application I’ll try to encourage myself and others to employ as the result is actually biblical.
because we have given up hope?
