    Are you looking for current events to identify the “biblical last days?” If so, you are reading your own presuppositions into the text. Theologians call that “eisegesis.” That’s an illegitimate methodology for biblical interpretation. Instead, we should be trying to glean the meaning intended by the biblical authors themselves―and the understanding of the original audience, i.e. “exegesis.” Let’s avoid newspaper-eschatology and go to the Bible to define the “last days” or “end times.” The Bible never speaks about the end of the world―only about end of the AGE. The King James Version of the Bible has misled readers for 400...

    So many people ask, “How in the world could this be happening? It is so crazy!” And they are correct. But the bible has been foretelling world events for thousands of years so it makes sense that perhaps it may have insight into what is going on today. A year or so ago, a good friend of mine who owns sent me this chapter to read and everything made sense. Here are my thoughts on this chapter and the passage is below the video: 9:51 VIDEO AT LINK.......... II Thess Chapter 2 The Man of Lawlessness 2 Concerning the...

  • Historic, Gigantic, Volcanic Eruption: What NASA and European Space Agency Admit but Media Fail to Report About Our Current Heat Wave

    The current heat wave is being relentlessly blamed on increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, but there is a much more plausible explanation, one that is virtually endorsed by two of the world’s leading scientific organizations. It turns out that levels of water vapor in the atmosphere have dramatically increased over the last year and a half, and water vapor is well recognized as a greenhouse gas, whose heightened presence leads to higher temperatures, a mechanism that dwarfs any effect CO2 may have.So why has atmospheric water vapor increased so dramatically? Because of a historic, gigantic volcanic eruption...

  • Senate Votes to Impose Rail Contract, Rejects Measure Granting Workers 7 Paid Sick Days

    Breitbart ^ | 12/01/2022 | Nick Gilbertson
    The U.S. Senate voted Thursday to pass a resolution imposing a contract on freight rail workers but rejected a concurrent measure that would give workers seven guaranteed paid sick days. H.J. Resolution 100 passed the Senate by a margin of 80-15, surpassing the 60-vote threshold. The Biden Administration brokered a tentative deal in August between the unions and carriers, but rank-and-file members of four of the twelve unions in the deal rejected it. Paid sick leave for workers was a central hold-up to the deal moving forward.
  • Joe Biden Spends Record 150 Days at Home as President in Just 18 Months

    President Joe Biden returned to his home in Delaware on Tuesday, marking his 49th trip to the state as president. The president left for home again on Tuesday afternoon after signing his green energy spending bill. Biden has now spent a record 150 days at home in Delaware in the 18 months since he was elected president, according to former CBS correspondent Mark Knoller, easily beating recent presidential records.

Instead, we should be trying to glean the meaning intended by the biblical authors themselves―and the understanding of the original audience, i.e. “exegesis.” Let’s avoid newspaper-eschatology and go to the Bible to define the “last days” or “end times.” First, let’s consider an important passage from the Old Testament: Daniel 12.

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) said Friday that people “should keep a very close eye” on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D) final days in office. On Tuesday, Cuomo announced his resignation following a bombshell New York state attorney general report which accused him of sexual harassment and misconduct against multiple women.

    WHEN ARE/WERE THE BIBLICAL LAST DAYS? Here are some views of Christians: (a) Some undefined period in the future near the end of history. (b) Will begin at a future literal rapture of the church. (c) Began in 1948. (d) Will mark the end of the Christian age. (e) Began in the first century and continue today, essentially meaning the new covenant era. Years ago, as I studied this carefully, I had to admit that none of these views are biblical. The last days/end times, according to Scripture, marked the END OF THE OLD COVENANT ERA in the first century....

    The Word of God, King James Version | "In the Beginning, God..." | The Lord Jesus Christ, Creator of Heaven and Earth
    In this Third Chapter of Timothy, Paul writes to both warn and encourage believers in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior about what will transpire in the Last Days before His Return. Beloved, our Lord and Savior Jesus' Return is so imminent, so close, that it could happen at any moment! May the Holy Spirit inspire and encourage you, those who have not decided to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, to do so. Your eternal spirit--the real you, which looks out from your physical eyes, which is your self-awareness within that "earth suit" that you walk this...
  • When Were the Biblical Last Days?

    THE BIBLICAL LAST DAYS by Charles Meek Years ago, when I began studying the Bible seriously, I decided to "test all things" to see if what I was being taught about Christian doctrine was correct, as the Bible itself instructs us to do in 1 Thessalonians 5:21. I wanted to know and to teach the truth, even if the truth was contrary to my previous assumptions. I did extensive studies of all the popular doctrines of classical Christianity, including: the evidence for God, the divinity of Christ, the Trinity, the atonement, the resurrection, the inspiration of Scripture, the sinful nature...

    Do you merely ASSUME that you know what is meant by biblical “last days?” Are you willing to see what the Bible actually teaches? This study is an exegesis on what the biblical writers were conveying about the so-called “last days” or “end times.” There are two views among Christians. The first view is that the end times are about the end of the physical world—that is, the end of history. This first view is called “futurism.” The second view is that the end times are about the end of the Old Covenant Age. This view is called “preterism.” In...

    Prophecy Questions blog ^ | April 30, 2019 | Charles S. Meek
    There is much confusion about the so-called "last days" or "end times" of the Bible. Eschatology is very controversial among Christians, and different Christian sects have different opinions on how to interpret critical passages. But very few Christians have really searched Scripture for the truth about this, relying on newspaper theology rather than true scholarship. Hopefully, the serious student will find this short article helpful as an introduction to eschatology. Pray for discernment. At the bottom of this article is an exhaustive list of “Last Days/End Times Passages” in the New Testament. Included are some additional passages referenced for context....
  • RESTORATION: No More Tears

    Prophecy Questions blog ^ | March 10, 2019 | Charles S. Meek
    Many Christians await the Second Coming in which Jesus restores all EARTHLY things to an idyllic world with no more sin, death, crying, or pain—from a literal reading of Isaiah 11:1-9; 65:17-25 and Revelation 21:1-4. These Christians confront us preterists with this statement: “Jesus cannot have come yet because we still see sin, suffering, evil, and death all around us.” I think futurists need to be challenged on this biblically. Concerning sin, the Bible says that Jesus appeared at his First Advent to put away/remove sin (Hebrews 9:26; cf. Daniel 9:24-27; Matthew 1:21; John 1:29; Acts 5:31; Romans 6:1-14; Colossians...

    FOR THE THIRD TIME THIS YEAR, Holy Church comes claiming from her children the tribute of Penance, which, from the earliest ages of Christianity, was looked upon as a solemn consecration of the Seasons. The historical details relative to the institution of the Ember Days will be found on the Wednesdays of the third week of Advent and of the first week of Lent; and on those same two days, we have spoken of the intentions which Christians should have in the fulfilment of the demand made upon their yearly service. The beginnings of the Winter, Spring, and Autumn...

    Did you know that there are 15 mentions in the New Testament of the biblical last days or end times—and that the setting and fulfillment of none of them can be placed outside the first century? Here are four of them: “Now these things happened to them as an example, but they were written down for our instruction, ON WHOM THE END OF THE AGES HAS COME.” (Apostle Paul, 1 Corinthians 10:11) “Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but IN THESE LAST DAYS He has spoken to us by...
