Preparing for Sunday – Daniel 7-12

For those attending Summit Woods Baptist Church this Sunday, here are a few ways to prepare. Carefully Think Read through Daniel 7. How was the imagery of Daniel’s vision interpreted for him in 7:15-27? Make a list of what you learn? What is God’s role in the events described in this vision? What phrases do you see in Daniel 7 that would give any indication as to the timing of these events? Read Daniel 8 – how does...

Preparing for Sunday – Daniel 1-12

How do you prepare yourself during the week to engage with God and participate in corporate worship on Sunday? Every week our church gives a number of ways to interact with the passage to be preached, and lists the songs that will be sung, in order to help our congregation be better prepared. These posts will also begin to populate THE CAPRANICA each Thursday. Carefully Think Read Daniel 1:1; 2:1; 5:1, 30, 31; 6:1; and 10:1. Where is...

Characteristics of the Anti-Christ – Part 2

Final thoughts on the antichrist from 2 Thessalonians 2. Intro &  Part 1 His Revealing Brings His Undoing (v  8 ) Only when the restrainer is removed will the “mystery of lawlessness” or the man of lawlessness be revealed. The removal of the restrainer brings the revelation of the antichrist. Paul did not believe that his day was that day. In fact, whoever this man of lawlessness is, he will be personally undone by the...

Characteristics of the Anti-Christ – Part 1

Continuing my thoughts from yesterday’s post: What are the characteritics that comprise the man of lawlessness, or the one we would commonly refer to as the Anti-Christ? He Comes with Apostasy 2 Thess 2:3 says, “Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction” (italics in in the NAS). The apostasy here appears to...

Characteristics of the Anti-Christ: A Little Background

In spite of the hermeneutical difficulties of the recent Obama-Antichrist video, I am still one who believes in a futuristic coming of a man who we could describe as “The Antichrist.” Perhaps in some circles, such a notion is worthy only of matching historical events with a 1st century villian. I still believe the world will see such a person. Let me also state before going any further. The issue of eschatology is not...

Obama the Antichrist?

Perhaps you have seen or heard wind of this video.  This sort of approach to the Bible is so distracting from a healthy approach to interpreting the Scriptures.  It is a case study in why we need more instruction and modeling of solid hermeneutics on a weekly basis in our local churches. Here’s the video: [You Tube Video] Here’s Dan Wallace’s excellent and helpful critique. HT:  Denny...

A Note on Romans 15:7-13

Romans 15:7 ¶ Therefore, accept one another, just as Christ also accepted us to the glory of God. 8 For I say that Christ has become a servant to the circumcision on behalf of the truth of God to confirm the promises given to the fathers, 9 and for the Gentiles to glorify God for His mercy; as it is written, “THEREFORE I WILL GIVE PRAISE TO YOU AMONG THE GENTILES, AND I WILL SING TO YOUR NAME.” 10 Again he says,...

MacArthur’s Millennial Manifesto – A Friendly Response

Amillennialist Sam Waldron did an interesting thing in writing an entire book in response to a single sermon:  John MacArthur’s 2007 opening message at the Shepherds’ Conference.  While I have not taken the time to read the book (I did hear the sermon and have scanned a friend’s copy of the Waldron’s book), fellow seminary alum, Fred Butler has not only read it but posts his responses to the book.  Worth the...
