Where/What/Who is The Christ?

I believe in the present, indwelling Christ; which is the ONE BODY, made up of many members. I do not believe in a Jesus, that currently resides in a fleshly body, off in some distant location, apart from the "body of Christ" that is eternally existent through the PAROUSIA (presence) which Paul referenced as the "Christ in you" that is the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27)


The Challenge


If you've been taught wrong, you'll teach wrong! Futurist Christian Eschatology is guilty of Projecting: Fulfilled Eschatology requires a minority of interpretation! Futurist Eschatology requires a majority of interpretation, yet many of its adherents often accuse believers of Fulfilled Eschatology of this tactic. The best baseline premise for Fulfilled Eschatology is as follows:


The Last Days Avenging of righteous blood!

An Eschatology Challenge:

Eschatology is a conjunction of 2 Greek words: Eschatos, meaning last, final, or end, and Logy, which is the word, or study of something. In short, Eschatology is the study of the end times, or last days.

It should immediately be stated, and recognized, that this writing is not intended to be exhaustive of the topic of the end times: most scholars would agree that 30% or more of scripture is in reference to these end times; and this now presents us with more than 9,000 scriptures to consider.

No private interpreting of scripture?

When explaining what you believe certain words, phrases, or scriptures mean, have you ever had anyone say "You're adding private interpretation and scripture says you can't do that"? And they may even throw 2Pe 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. At you!

The Son of Perdition; Short Example

As with many things in scripture, the Son of Perdition has a Type and Anti-type.
Judas is called the Son of Perdition by Christ himself, but Judas commits suicide long before Paul writes of a Son of Perdition setting himself up in the Temple of God. At least given this information, Paul is not speaking of Judas Iscariot.

Zechariah 12 Fulfilled?

Many have been taught that Zechariah 12 has not yet been fulfilled: Zechariah 12:10 is their biggest stumbling block to it not having been fulfilled yet.............

And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn

A Death in The Garden


The Death experienced by Adam; was it literal, or was it spiritual?

Metaphorical Death is what occurred!


Christians aren't supposed to judge?


I get so tired of hearing "Christians aren't supposed to judge! Oh really?

 

To judge is to decide, to decide is to choose, to choose is to discern, to discern is to prefer, to prefer is to discriminate, to discriminate is to show prejudice, to show prejudice is to determine, to determine is to show favor, to show favor is to designate, to designate is to distinguish, to distinguish is to winnow, to winnow is to separate, to separate is to weigh, to weigh is to elect, to elect is to select, and to select is to segregate.


Who am I? Why am I here?


Imagine a homeless dog, wandering the streets; everywhere he turns, just looking for someone to take some time, pet him, give him something to eat or drink, maybe take him home and give him a bath and a nice warm bed to sleep in?

 

Only throughout his travels, he's yelled at constantly, people kick at him, throw rocks or sticks at him; and because of the lifestyle that dog is stuck in, he must endure this day in and day out.Eventually, that dog is going to have enough of it, and lash out, and bite someone, and maybe even hurt them severely


Why doesn't the present New Heaven/New Earth feel new?


A friend recently posited this question, below is the answer I offer to anyone asking the same.

 

I can only imagine it doesn't feel new because we never had to exist under the Old System. The Institutional Church/Institutional Religion (IC/IR) has done their best to recreate this system of bondage, and to bring people under its promises of punishments for non-compliance, and promises of rewards for obedience and adherence.


Death is defeated?


1st Corinthians 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

 

"shall be" is future tense, right? Well; as the Hertz Rental Car Company commercials used to say, not exactly.

What is the Bible about?

The primary theme running consistently throughout the Old Testament is the same as in the New; this primary theme is given in the form of a parable.


What is a parable?

 

A parable is a story that requires the use of metaphorical/symbolic language, and takes things of the physical/temporal realm, and uses them to point out that which is spiritual/eternal.

What is Resurrection?


Resurrection: Anastasia


Look up Anastasia at Dictionary.com; fem. proper name, from fem. of L.L. Anastasius, from Gk. Anastasios, from anastasis "resurrection," lit. "a standing or rising up," from ana "up; again" (see ana-) + histanai "to cause to stand, to stand up" from PIE root *sta- "stand"


Why hasn't Orthodox Christianity taught Fulfilled Eschatology?


If Fulfilled Eschatology is the truth of and in scripture, why has "Orthodox Christianity" never embraced it?

 

I get this question; although worded 10,000 different ways from Sunday, asked of me all the time; below is a simple offering.


The knowledge of good and evil


The knowledge of good and evil; is this a bad thing after all?

 

The knowledge of good and evil is the carnal mind itself, and as long as mankind walks in his present (human) condition, this will always be so. To remove one aspect, of the two, is not probable, possible, nor likely.


Was the Devil bound at the Cross?

I was recently asked to prove from scripture that Christ BOUND the Devil at the Cross; I submit to you the answer I provided.


Preterists never answer?

An example would be "Preterists never give me an answer for Ezekiel 40-48 or Zechariah 14"


A Preterist head scratch!


Things Christians say they believe, but clearly don't by their earthly futuristic expectations and demands.


The Parousia of Christ

This article examines what is commonly referred to as the 2nd coming, or return of Christ. This article is not intended to be exhaustive of such a topic, but is simply designed to correct the false notion of such.  

The Two Tap System

From beginning to end, the Bible shows us paralleled and opposing sides, or forces; as we go through scripture, we begin to notice a prevailing theme that is replete, and it is seen through multiple examples of two, and these come forth from the two taps


The Veil was rent?

Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

A strictly literal reading of this verse makes no sense; as if implying humans are neither male nor female, etc...


Christ; Reigning King or awaiting Prince?

The destruction of their (Israel's) beloved City (Jerusalem), Temple, Political, and Religious power of National Israel clarifies the "sign" of Christ's "Parousia" which relates to his "presence" and this likewise demonstrates the absoluteness of his "coming in clouds" which is an idiom that speaks to judgmental language as testified by numerous Old Testament scriptures demonstrating this same language to show the judgment and presence of God.

The White Stone?

Revelation 2:17 “He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches; To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knows saving he that receives it


Where's your focus?

When it comes to Christianity, your focus is either on the carnal or spiritual; where's your focus? When it comes to the Kingdom of God, are you within the gates of New Jerusalem, or outside its gates?


Death; Biological or Covenantal?

Biological death was never the issue! Grass and trees die, do they sin? It was Covenantal death! Adam and Eve broke their Covenant with God and were removed from the Garden.


Has the Land Promise (To National Israel) been fulfilled?


The LAND PROMISES Fulfilled after their bondage in, and liberation from Egypt!


Joshua 21:43-45 so the LORD gave to Israel all the land which he swore to give to their fathers; and having taken possession of it, they settled there.  And the LORD gave them rest on every side just as he had sworn to their fathers; not one of all their enemies had withstood them, for the LORD had given all their enemies into their hands. Not one of all the good promises which the LORD had made to the house of Israel had failed; all came to pass.
