My Bible…

 

My Bible is God’s Word spoken to the fathers by the prophets; (1,3)

And to those in the last days by His Son.

It was preserved for me by men inspired of the Holy Spirit. (2,3)

It tells of the first covenant with Israel that failed,

And of the new covenant written on the hearts of the people of God. (4)

It contains the experiences of the fathers as examples to the children. (5)

It tells me to earnestly contend for the faith that was once delivered to the saints. (6)

If I am faithful unto death, I will receive a crown of life; (7)

And by His grace, have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. (8)

 

(1) Hebrews 1:1-2

(2) 2 Timothy 3:16

(3) 2 Peter 1:21

(4) Hebrews 8:7-10

(5) 1 Corinthians 10:1-12

Revealing Mysteries…

I like to ask preterists this question… “In your opinion, which Bible verse speaks preterist loudest ?” My response is…Revelation 22:10…”And he said to me, Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand.” I then …

I like to ask preterists this question…

In your opinion, which Bible verse speaks preterist loudest ?”

 

My response is…Revelation 22:10…”And he said 

to me, Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand.”

 

I then say, compare that with Daniel 12:4, 9…”Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book till the time of the end.”

 

Daniel 10-12…Daniel’s awesome vision shows that our Lord wants us to understand. 

 

**The Lord’s face as the appearance of lightning; His eyes as lamps of fire…

(Dan 10:6…also Rev 1:14; Isaiah 60:1-5)**

 

Wonderful symbolism of the LIGHT He wants to give us!

 

“The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” Deuteronomy 29:29

 

Preterists are not the only believers who may be enabled with ‘enlightened eyes’. All believers have this promise of the Holy Spirit (see Ephesians chapter 1). Why do some seem to use their enlightened eyes but not others? I liken it to the passage in 1 Samuel 14:24-29. They could’ve been fed with honey supplied before their very eyes, but they chose to refuse it, and instead listened to the words of man’s interpretation.

 

My encouragement to other believers is…

Please read your Bible with H.O.P.E…Having Open Preterist Eyes.

It’s been said that truth is in the eye of the

 

beholder, similar to beauty’s residence…

 

Truth being “in the eye of the beholder”

 

makes truth relative and subjective to every

 

whim and fancy. Truth according to the Bible

 

and Jesus is absolute and objective, not

 

colored by feelings and opinions.

 

The search is on for the Truth.  Keep digging

 

and questioning what you’ve been told and

 

take it to Christ.  He alone will settle the dust

 

and write His Truth in our minds and hearts.

 

“The first to plead his case seems right, until

 

another comes and examines him.” ~Proverbs 18:17
