God’s Final Call – 03 – Structure of Prophecy (Mark Woodman)

youtube, mp3 (1, 2)

[PT 1 of 9]

We’re going to be discussing the structure of prophecy. Like we looked at in the previous lectures, prophecy is very, very important. In the bible, prophecy has been given to us for a number of reasons, which I’ll get into a couple of minutes. But prophecy is possibly the most powerful but the most misunderstood aspect of the word of God. God has sealed up His truth in prophetic language and He’s done so that only diligent study is able to unlock it. More and more as we enter the final times of the world, those that are truly diligent about the word of God are the ones that are able to unlock and explain prophecy. The reason God locked prophecy in prophetic in language is so that He could protect it from corruption from outside fingers as it were; from people that would influence the bible and prophecy to mean something else so that Satan once he understood prophecy would adjust it. But because it’s locked up in prophetic language, it can only be encoded and decoded by the bible. The only way to unlock or decode prophecy is to learn the language of prophecy from the bible and apply that language to the information. So, you get a type of prophetic stencil which when you look at the prophecy through the stencil it makes sense. Prophecy was given to us as it explains in Amos 3:7 to give us security in our knowledge about what’s coming in future.

Is God worse than Hitler?

mp3

In the 1940s, the human race hailed the philosophical achievement of eugenics.
In the united states, people were routinely sterilized if they had birth defects, in an attempt to create a race free from disease.  Many atrocities were performed, but none took Darwinism more to its conclusion than Adolf Hitler.  He is often thought of as the epitome of evil… The worst of the worst, yet, even though he killed millions of Jews, and countless others, his methods for the Jews in particular, we’re oddly humane (not all of his methods, but a lot). He would march the people into a gas chamber, having them think they were going for a shower, and gassed them all.

Sure this was killing, and horrible in anyone’s language…

But let’s look at the Catholic Church.  In the 1260 years from 538 AD the Catholic Church, using some of the most horrendous torture methods that were ever invented, persecuted and killed over 100 million people.

But their inspiration was even worse. Their belief is, the being they worship, is currently torturing for eternity billions and billions of people, for the sole reason that they did not love him, or weren’t intellectually convinced of him, or maybe they just liked sin more than him.

Is it any wonder there are atheists? What I will show now, is: the God that came to die for us is not the unjust psychopath presented here, he is just and loving.

It is my purpose to vindicate God from this horrible slander that his professed church has leveled against him.

But there is the annialationism approach taught, that is equally slander.  Justice requires punishment for transgression of the law.

Let’s find out from the bible what actually happens to the wicked:

The Nature of Christ

VICTORY OVER THE BEAST AND ITS IMAGE

1. Whom did John see in vision singing the song of victory on the sea of glass mixed with fire?

Revelation 15:2, 3 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

Part 1 of 9

Who is God? This is a question that has been plaguing mankind for eons.  Who is He?  How do we know Him?  How do we identify Him?  Is there such a thing as a God?  Is it as the New Age mentions or a universal energy or a collective conscious?  This is the question we’re going to be asking and answering today and we’re going to be challenging a God, the God.  God, we sing, who are you?  If you are there, come through, identify yourself and show us who you are.  Prove to us that you are God.

Rebuilding Adventism

Jeremiah 6:13-16 (KJV)
For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely. [14] They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace. [15] Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the Lord . [16] Thus saith the Lord , Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.

 

This series is aimed to show us the old paths.  You will learn the history of the Seventh Day Adventist church and have the opportunity to say “we will walk therein”.  Learn what went wrong, and what we can do to learn from the mistakes of the modern SDA church.  This very clear series takes you from the 3 angels messages, all the way through to the establishment of the SDA church, through to today, and the issues with modern doctrine.  Our aim with this is to teach the true and clear doctrine as preached by the Advent Pioneers, culminating in the 1888 message.  This is not a call out of any organisation or “brand” of Adventism (though sometimes this may be the end result), but rather a call to stand on the platform of truth.

What are the Nephilim?

2012-11-14 – Ben Jones – What are the Nephalim? – mp3

There are some very strange ideas going around Christianity relating to the nephalim.  If you haven’t heard about it, count yourself lucky… very lucky, because most of Christianity has a complex theory relating to who these “mystical beings” are.  I will only cover a few here.

Author Lauren Kate wrote the book Fallen about an angel who is romantically attracted to and pursues a relationship with a human teenager. In the January 11, 2010 issue of Publisher’s Weekly (PW) on p. 13, Kate claims, “The idea for the book came from a line I read in Genesis about a group of angels who were effectively kicked out of heaven because they lusted after mortal women. I became curious about what the experience might be of a teenage mortal who suddenly became the object of an angel’s affection.”

But where do they actually get it from?  This is what the bible says:The passage Lauren Kate refers to is Genesis 6:1-6…
