Had I perceived that you were all zealously disposed to go to war with the Romans, and that the purer and more sincere part of the people did not propose to live in peace, I had not come out to you, nor been so bold as to give you counsel; for all discourses that tend to persuade men to do what they ought to do is superfluous, when the hearers are agreed to do the contrary. Continue reading “Ovid Need: King Agrippa’s Speech To the Nationalists (1998)”
Every Jew knew that the “Heaven and the Earth” was the temple. That’s what Jesus meant when He said that “Heaven and Earth” would pass but that His word would not pass. That is the prophecy of Isaiah 65. Continue reading “John Anderson: Global Elite Promoting ‘End Times’ Myth (2001 Transcript)”
On the “ninth of Ab” it was decreed concerning our fathers, that they should not enter into the land (of Canaan), the first and second temple were destroyed, Tisha B’av may have been our 9/11, but out of this painful crucible, we will eventually emerge stronger and more robust than ever before. Continue reading “Tisha B’Av Study Archive”
the true “Israel of God” are those blood-bought adopted children of God who have been “circumcised of heart” by the Holy Spirit. The ultimate “sons of Abraham” are those of faith, not natural birth (Rom. 4:1-25; Gal. 3:5-9; 4:4-7). Continue reading “Gerry Webb: God’s Judgment and End of Israel as a Special Nation (2002)”

There will come to pass in the last time a war which will throw the world into confusions and be deceptive in guile. A man who is a matricide will come from the ends of the earth in flight and devising penetrating schemes in his mind. He will destroy every land and conquer all. (Sibylline Oracle 5) Continue reading “Nero, the Beast Study Archive”
Hello again, my friends. With the understanding that God has made us bread to be broken and shared with the eater, I thought I’d sit down and break you off a little. Continue reading “Duncan McKenzie: The Revelation of Jesus Christ (2007)”
And he sent forth his armies: This was accomplished by the Roman forces in the destruction of Jerusalem; which may with propriety be called the army of God, as fulfilling his will. LeClerc and Whitby. “The armies of God are his angels, by whose ministry he acts, (l Kings xxii. 19; Luke ii. 13), they distribute his judgments, and by the Romans, brought them, (that is, pestilence and famine,) on Jerusalem.” Grotius.
The nail in the coffin of the textbook history for these times is that Simon Bar Kochba issued coins depicting “The Redemption of Israel” – oh, yes, and so did Simon Bar Giora Continue reading “Damien Mackey: Simon Bar Kochba Dated Too Late (2014)”
A major argument between Preterists and Dispensationalists is the so-called “time gap” between the 69th and 70th seven of Daniel 9-26-27. Those who oppose, the Preterists, argue that it is not supported anywhere in scripture. Are they correct?
Clearly, Luke 21:20-24 refers to the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in A.D. 70. The second half of verse 24 says, “and Jerusalem will be trampled under foot by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” Equally clear is that the last half of verse 24 is descriptive of a period of time that commenced after the Roman vanquishing of Jerusalem in the first century.
