An Examination Of Gary DeMar’s “Limited Geography” (Part 1)

(Note: This article was originally published on 12/4/2008, but was recently revised. Part 2 is also under revision to be published shortly. Although DeMar’s original article is no longer available, he is still using the same presuppositional arguments to support his Preterist view).  In his article, “Limited Geography and Biblical Interpretation,” Preterist teacher Gary DeMar…

On Biblical Vs. Preteristic Meanings Of “Heaven And Earth”

One of the first things a Bible student must do, when approaching the doctrines of Preterism, is distinguish between types that are purely Genetic in origin, and those that are Mosaic. This will allow him/her to separate the layers of fulfillment and discern what was fulfilled and what wasn’t. When we refer to the “omega…

The Seven Kingdoms Of Daniel 2

    As the end-time approaches, I have become increasingly interested in the study of prophecy;  especially as it relates to “what’s next” on the prophetic calendar.  In recent posts I have demonstrated that the next great event will be the descent of our Lord into the lower heavens to set up His tribunal over…

The Key of Prophetic Interpretation

  Whenever we examine the context of Scripture, we do so with the intent of discovering what the Word of God has revealed to us. In the field of prophecy, examination of context is important, for without a careful reading, we’ll be apt to wander from the truth. This has been evidenced in the case…

From What Nation Will Antichrist Arise?

  There is currently a major discussion going on among propecy students concerning Antichrist’s nationality.  From whence will he arise?  Will he be a Jew or a Gentile?  Although I don’t have all the answers (in fact, I don’t even have a specific answer, much less a solution to the riddle), nevertheless, I think this is…
