A Change of Pace

My husband and I went camping last weekend and I thought, just for a change of pace, that I post some pictures of God’s beautiful creation!

David Curtis Teaching on the Feasts of the Lord

I left a comment recently on another blog.  The blogger was saying that the promise God gave to Abraham to “Bless those that bless you” in Gen 12, was refering to the entire nation of Israel.  My comment stated that that word was not given to the nation of Israel, but to Abram while and he was not a Jew.  I went on to say that the blessings of Abraham were passed to the gentiles through Jesus Christ. 

She commented with that old cliche about believing in  “replacement theology”…. It’s the same old argument for those who are into dispensational futurism.  She told me about how after the “rapture” God is going to deal with Israel seperately (Dual covenant theology??)   and that the antichrist is going to set up his kingdom againt Israel.  When I reminded her that Israel had already been surrounded by armies (Luke 21) she then said “Ah…. I see. You’re a preterist. That explains your post completely. You believe that nothing remains of prophecy to be fulfilled, and that it was fulfilled in 70 A.D.”   She then accused me of interpreting the Bible spiritually.  Well, No Crystal… I take literally that which is literal and spiritual that which is spiritual!   She then went on to tell me that preterism was a leaky vessel. 

I’ve been pondering the exchange for several days and I decided to counter this with some intellegent preterist teachings.  If you really know the word and how to use proper exegesis and let the Bible interpret itself, the vessel actually doesn’t leak!  Let’s let go of our preconditioned brainwashing and open our ears and hearts to truth. 

This is a teaching by David Curtis teaching on the Feasts from a preterist view point:   (http://www.worldwithoutend.info/start/audios/feasts.htm)

The Beauty of Nothing

One of the most powerful messages I have ever heard from Sermon Index:

The Beauty of Nothing

by Richard Wurmbrand

Topic: Persecuted Church

 
Description: Pastor Wurmbrand shares his experiences in jail for 14 years by the communists. He shares a specific facet of his testimony which was the nothingness they were faced with in jail. No bibles, No fellowship, No communion, No sound. But admist this all the Lord Jesus Christ revealed himself to the prisoners and allowed them to experience him and even take communion. This message will stir you out of apathy and grumbling over our little issues in life that are nothing in comparision with what this brother went through. May this message show us the needs to pray and support the persecuted church. “It is a shame to be a luke-warm Christian”.
