The Final Prophecy: It Is Done

The continuity of story and characters in the Biblical record, one story written to the same people from Genesis to Revelation, does not preclude the absence of other story lines. One of those story lines is the image of the great seven-headed beast first mentioned in Daniel chapter 2. It began in the year 602 BCE with Babylon. The seven heads of this beast are seven empires or kingdoms; “five are fallen, one is, and one is yet to come.” It is after the return of Christ, and this final seventh head, which will emerge more than a thousand years in our future, that the heavens and the Earth as we know them will pass away. There will be a new heaven and Earth, and as the new Jerusalem comes down out of heaven from God, on that day, our Lord GOD will say, “It is done.”

Book Excerpts

The Last Great Day, The Hijacked Elephant

 The last of the high holy days is the eighth day of the feast of Tabernacles, and is referred to by the apostle John in his gospel as “the last, the great day of the feast.” “In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come to me, and drink. He that believes on me, as the scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spoke he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given because Jesus was not yet glorified).” [John 7:37-39].

No More Oceans

I listened to a confirmed atheist volunteering all his reasons to me for his beliefs. At the core of his reasoning was the banal atheist cliché that everything in the Biblical record is myth or fable. When I brought up several self-evident examples from Genesis chapter one that his reasoning was somewhat amiss, [both science and the Biblical record agree, the Earth is older than the Moon, for example], he banished the thought with his ready magic wand, “Well, that’s just someone’s opinion.” I brought up other credible examples, but he used this same dismissive phrase to discredit all of anthropology, astrophysics, the history of western civilization, geophysics and theology in one fell swoop. He appeared rather impressed with his Old World Talpini inspired logic. What made this all the more incredible, and incredulous, was the fact that he’d never read the Biblical record, much less studied it. The flood to him was just another myth. As he was sitting by the ocean when he said this, I had to make a conscious effort not to LOL. Let me explain.
