3rd Quarter commentary
blogs of 2020 ...
As we prepare to move into our 2nd Advent season,
we offer the following prayer:
Father YHVH God, thank You so for Your Son, Jesus Christ.
We praise You for Your plan: The Word of God, incarnate.
Thank You for creating all things through Him. Thank You
that He upholds / sustains all things. Thank You for sending
Your Word whereby mankind can be saved if we would but
place our faith in Him. And Father, thank You for sending
Your Son soon. May Your written Word which addresses
His glorious return comfort our hearts as we rejoice in Your
insights toward fruitful living in Christ Jesus today. In our
lives, Lord, be glorified, be glorified today. In the holy
name of the Lord Jesus we pray, amen.

When A Trusted Bible Commentator Fails Us
How do you respond when Dr. David Jeremiah errs in his
book, The Book Of Signs (2019; W Publishing) ?
One example of error:
On page 164 he writes,
"While raptures are extremely rare, they have
happened before, and they will happen again. There
are six raptures recorded and described in the Bible.
Four of those raptures have already taken place, and
two are yet to come.
The four raptures that have already occurred were
experienced by Enoch (Heb. 11:5), Elijah (2 Kings 2:11),
Paul (2 Cor. 12:2-4), and Jesus Christ (Acts 1:10-11).
The two raptures that are yet to happen are the rapture
of the church, which is the discussion of this chapter,
and the rapture of the two witnesses as prophesied in
Dr. Jeremiah is incorrect.
There's another HUGE rapture gathering that's yet
ahead - a third future rapture (in view of Pre-Tribulational
Rapture understanding). Our Lord Jesus describes it in
If a trusted evangelical Bible scholar is incorrect on one
key eschatological matter, couldn't he be incorrect on other
crucial end-time matters?
Of course this is a possibility. Please read on as this is
important. And do understand that it sincerely is the love
of Christ Jesus which compels us to raise this valid concern.
FACT: The PRE-Trib rapture of the Church is NOT taught
in the Word of God. Not one single explicit Bible passage
teaches this dangerous tradition.
Even the so-called inferences (non-explicit interpretations
and claims) in support of this false-hope promise (by some)
are not evidenced.
Click here for Bible facts - Truths in support of our plea:
"Please don't be dogmatic about PRE-Trib opinion."
As David Jeremiah asks in his book, so too have we
"What shall we do?"
"How shall we now live?"
Let's go to God's Word for Truthful information about
these end of days.
Yes, it's clear we are called to be watchful and ready. BUT
please note: One prepares differently depending upon the
eschatological view one holds.
Is YOUR end-time view Bible based?
It needs to be IF you want to be rightly prepared.

Accurate BIBLE-Based Eschatology?

"But" Is A VALID Word ... Father, You Have MY Attention!
Before sharing a parable, here's our point in this blog:
While we agree with most of the appeals in the video,
American Gospel: Christ Alone, we must go on to say:
"We agree with you, for the most part, BUT there's more to it than
what you're preaching!" The FULL Counsel of God's Word must
Parable: "Father, You Have MY Attention!"
There was a son who was most negligent toward his dad.
For decades he turned a deaf ear to his father's counsel and
acted as if his dad was his enemy. He went out of his way to
demonstrate acts of rejection, deeds so unjustified that some
called the son's life-actions, "simply weird - nothing less than
strange." But it was a strangeness that was dark in nature,
hard even to describe.
Year after year Jonah spurned Yoni's efforts at reaching out.
His heart had indeed grown most callous.
One day it did happen: Yoni's final effort at reconciling with
Jonah arrived. No, it wasn't as if he came no more. In fact,
the occasion was just the opposite. Instead of coming no more,
Yoni's loving actions were impossible to ignore. What he did to
get his son's attention is indescribable. And I mean just that.
I must leave it at that, for it truly is not something that can be
adequately pictured through wordy address.
What I can go on to say is this:
The son was so amazed at his father's actions that his frozen
heart thawed ... instantly. In this moment of never-before-
experienced tenderness, Jonah cried, "Father, you have
Dear reader, if you haven't yet discerned the loving invitations
of your heavenly Father at making your relationship right with
Him, please ask your Creator to remove the scales presently
blinding your eyes. Ask Him to melt the ice which is preventing
your heart to beat as it was intended.
He loves you so very much but, in His loving approach - one He, in
His right, unquestionable Authority, has deemed appropriate - does
not force you to accept His loving kindness through His Son, Jesus
Christ. Yes, He desires all to be saved BUT allows you your
choice. It's not too late to change your mind and say yes to
restoring relationship with your kind Father. One day it will
happen: the offer will close; the possibility of restoration will
be made no more. Don't allow darkness to take you to the Lake
of Fire in eternal agony. Instead, say YES to God's offer of
reconciliation through His beloved Son. You know what to do.
Talk with Him. Talk with Him before it's too late ... Puff the
magic dragon? No, it's God's still small voice as 316 came

God's Most Precious 316s
He sure has various ways of creatively communicating His loving
message of restoration to us!
As gas prices once again begin to rise, we'll most likely find a
316 at the pump.
As the afternoon lengthens, all of us will pass 316. Some of us,
like myself, often find ourselves awake during the early morning
hours. In fact, just most recently, I sent an email and sure enough,
the time the email was sent was 316.
The next time you encounter 316, remember one of the most
important 316s (the Bible offers multiple 316s!) of them all:
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten
Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have
everlasting life. (John 3:16 ; NKJV)

Better SAID Than NOT SAID
[ A principle in the biblical book of Ezekiel is driving this
pressing warning. We know things. But by the grace of
God, we share some of His crucial insights with you ...
because love, as defined in I Cor. 13, impels us and
because we are accountable before God to do so. ]
If one knows a kayaker was about to meet her doom (as
she, unaware of the threat ahead, was about to encounter a
40-foot fall), is it not incumbent on the individual who knows
there's danger ahead, to warn the one in the kayak?
If a neighbor sees a fire burning in the basement of a home
across the street - where a family of four are playing cards
on the second story of their residence - is it not right for the
neighbor to warn them they are in imminent harm's way?
Of course those [ in the know ] should speak out and bring
We are living in the early period of the very end of days. While
the birth pains which our Lord Jesus forewarned us about are
increasing in pain and frequency, we also find ourselves in the
early tribulation days of Matthew 24:9-14. In light of global reality,
read these verses in your Bibles. (If you don't have one, write to
us and we'll send you a copy if you'd but help us with shipping
costs - email email@example.com for details about this offer.)
Soon, other signs prior to our Lord's initial appearing will unfold.
Are you watching as the Lord of lords has called all people to
watch? Mark 13:37 is clear.
Are you prepared for His coming in light of His Counsel in
Matthew 24 & 25? Matthew 24:13 is clear.
Don't ignore the rougher waters - the water fall is just ahead.
Don't deny the early signs of the fire currently burning - the
house is ready to erupt in flame.
We care, sincerely we do. As a result, in the love and truth
of Jesus Christ, we bring warning.

When your face is before me
I can only imagine

What will my heart feel
Will I dance for you Jesus
Or in awe of you be still
Will I stand in your presence
Or to my knees will I fall
Will I sing hallelujah
Will I be able to speak at all

A NEW Annual Ministry Suggestion
For Local Churches Around The World
How we got to the low statistics regarding Bible literacy
is beyond me. And yet, the number is most likely even
lower when it comes to Bible knowledge about the
doctrine of end times - eschatology.
We at Endurance Ministries would like to see improvements
in these low numbers. Here's our God-honoring suggestion,
one which offers local churches in any global context an
opportunity to make the most of an annual, pertinent-to-today
Discipleship and Gospel ministry effort. We need to be more
literate concerning what God's Word says about being His
Ambassadors in these end of days. We can't afford to be
out of touch with great ministry opportunities unfolding in
today's culture - days before the initial appearing of our
[ A note on the suggestion linked immediately below: Those
residing in the northern hemisphere of our planet would need
to view this ministry effort in the context of a summer outreach;
those residing in the southern hemisphere would need to view this
ministry opportunity somewhat differently - in the general setting
of a winter outreach. On to our ministry suggestion ... ]

Discerning Our Times
The CDC ( Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ) is
seeking to take yet another step in undermining the Church's
God-given authority of self governance. If they're not doing so
intentionally, they're sure appealing for compliance ignorantly,
or so it would seem. Either way, there's a worldview BATTLE
raging today, one especially tied to authority. By way of one
example of appeal, Click Here
Did you discern (in the "Click Here" article above) another label
that's being used to further push us into their box ... their mold !?
The new "CFBOs" acronym stands for this:
Community- & Faith-Based Organizations.
The power players tied to the CDC want to further
become our authority, or so it would seem.
A HUGE QUESTION emerges at this juncture:
Will we, Jesus Christ's Church, let them?
Or will we, like thousands of local churches and pastors
across our land say, "NO!" to their attempt at conditioning
us to further conform?
God's Word - our Authority for faith and practice - has
much to say about this.
Here's only one of scores of insightful passages. It offers
simple yet most practical-to-our-day Counsel:
"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of
God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy,
acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be
transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you
may prove what is that good and acceptable and
perfect will of God." Romans 12:1, 2 (NKJV ; emphases ours)
They seek to pair us with secular culture - "community &
faith-based organizations" (as if we share essential
They want to put their words in our mouths.
They wish to speak (incorrectly) on our behalf.
We need to learn to be more comfortable with saying, "NO!"

tion of our minds today - for His supernatural revelation concerning
our days. Please read His end-time Counsel! Click Here for one list
of pertinent passages. "If the foundations are destroyed, what can
the righteous do?" Ps. 11:3 (NKJV) Truth Foundations Matter

Another Proposal For Your Prayerful And Exegetical Consideration
Because CONTEXT is important here, we'll provide some before
presenting our proposal:
After the revealing of the antichrist (an event still
future to the posting of this blog) ...
after the Covenant of Daniel 9 is made/confirmed ...
after the taking away of the daily sacrifice / regular offering ...
[ and 1,290 days later ]
after the setting up of the Abomination of Desolation ... and
as the three-and-a-half-year war against the Saints comes
to a conclusion,
something / some event will be used by God to bring an end
to the short-lived "great tribulation" of Matthew 24:15-22.
( Recall: the great tribulation is cut short )
Here's our proposal ...
The awesome earthquake of Revelation 6:12 will put
an end to the great tribulation of Mt. 24:15-22 in that the
earthquake will capture the world's attention and divert
the focus away from the great-tribulation unrest.
Then ("immediately after the tribulation of those days"),
the astronomical signs of Mt. 24:29 will blaze. (also
see Rev. 6:12, 13)

Listening To YHVH God's Counsel:
This Month's Berean Challenge ...
It is incumbent upon God's people in Jesus Christ to
build our worldview perspective on His authoritative
foundation of Counsel. This includes submitting to His
words AND the definitions He attributes to those words.
Let's do some word studies on the following terms:
"Tribulation," "Judgment" and "Wrath." You will find a
partial list of passages (which appeal to various dynamics
of the nature of God's wrath) here.
We encourage everyone to do a personal Bible study on
God's wrath and the related passages which clearly show
He, at times, disciplines, judges and even pours out His
wrath upon His wayward people.
We strongly encourage this study because, honestly speaking,
EVERYONE not in bondage by the deceptive powers of dark-
ness wants to avoid God's wrath, especially when it comes to
incurring it personally.
Given this quality of God's genuine people in Christ Jesus, let's
strive toward a Bible-balanced understanding of God's crucial
corrective discipline, His judgment unto repentance and His
May we take the time to seek His Truths on this important
matter - for our bests interests, for the best interests of others
and unto our Creator's glory and praise.

Persistent False Teachings Today ...
I recently heard this comment:
"Put your head in the sand ... and take a deep breath!"
WOW. I'm thankful the Lord (of all lords) and King (of all
kings) was, and is, a bit more mercy driven.
And yet, our Lord Jesus was most willing to confront
when the need arose. Again, balance in all things. And
again, we'd be wise to acknowledge this: Balance as God
defines it isn't always - actually, rarely! - how we , as
man, define balance. See Isaiah 55:8-11 for an awesome
picture tied to a partial dynamic quality on this matter of
defining balance !
Anyway, back to this blog's emphasis.
God has dealt most graciously with mankind through the
millennia. He continues to do so. His demonstrations of
loving mercy are indeed new every morning. Great is His
And yet, there will come a time when the very end of days
will surely unfold. While there are voices in pop-Christianity
which seem to deny the fact that one day Jesus Christ will
come in His 2nd Coming as outlined in the Word of God -
Kris, speaking in a caring way, you're WRONG* - these
false-teaching voices will not deter Him.
We'd like to spin the initial statement (above) and present it
(to those who would follow faulty paradigms today) in a way
we believe to be more Christ-like:
"Take your head out of the sand and discern the signs
unfolding all around us!" It's time to use the words of our Lord
to better evaluate our day. Please use our suggested end-time
reading schedule for awesome Truths which so pertain to living
truthfully and fruitfully in Jesus Christ today. See blog CB4A
* Kris Vallotton has made the following false end-time appeal :
(though, in fairness to him, we're not sure he continues to make
this dangerous, incorrect appeal. We did contact him on this
matter. This is the response we received [to our email contact
with him, an email which included an initial draft of this blog] :
"Thank you so much for your email. Kris doesn't feel the need
to comment on this but thank you for the opportunity."
Again, we encourage you, the reader of this blog, to discern
for yourselves the implications of this response. What a day to
be heralding GOD's Truths in Christ Jesus - our soon-coming
King!) Click Here (for Kris' false end-time appeal)

Please see Erwin Lutzer's book, Who Are YOU to JUDGE? for
a quality, Bible-based distinction between wrongly judging VS.
exposing those who reject crucial-to-our-day Bible Truths.
CB4F - April, 2020
The BLAME Game
Can anything happen without the Lord's permission?
Is it not the Most High who helps one and harms another?
Then why should we, mere humans, complain when we
are punished for our sins?
Instead, let us test and examine our ways. Let us turn
again in repentance to the LORD. Let us lift our hearts
and hands to God in heaven and say, "We have sinned
and rebelled, and you have not forgiven us. You have
engulfed us with your anger, chased us down, and
slaughtered us without mercy. You have hidden your-
self in a cloud so our prayers cannot reach you. You
have discarded us as refuse and garbage among the
nations. Lamentations 3:37-45 ; NLT
Initial blame-game moments include:
Adam's blaming Eve
Eve's blaming the serpent
Both genders play this dark, ugly game, and yet, each
needed to acknowledge their own failure.
Ongoing blame-game playing continues - TODAY ...
Are bats the culprits / offenders ?
Others want to blame a communistic system for
unleashing our current virus epidemic - biological
warfare against the opposing capitalistic paradigm.
Some prefer to blame the scary sanitation contexts
of Wuhan market food providers.
Other propagators of holistic myth seem to appear
less judgmental. They blame the virus on natural
evolution / natural selection. (Some of these folks
also play another game: the game of deception
as they commit the error or fallacy of false analogy.)
And of course, there are some who judge God to be
WRONG. He is the One to be faulted.
BUT IS IT POSSIBLE ...
Is it possible the Lord Jesus, Who holds supreme authority over
His entire Creation, has allowed our devastation (yes, through
specific means/instruments at His beckoning call) due to our
own sins ?
Listen, again, to the pertinent-to-today Jeremiah cry :
Who is he who speaks and it comes to pass,
when the Lord has not commanded it ? Is it not
from the mouth of the Most High that woe and
well-being proceed? Why should a living man
complain, a man for the punishment of his sins?
Let us search out and examine our ways, and turn
back to the LORD; let us lift our hearts and hands
to God in heaven. We have transgressed and re-
belled; You have not pardoned. You have covered
Yourself with anger and pursued us; You have
slain and not pitied. You have covered Yourself
with a cloud, that prayer should not pass through.
You have made us an offscouring and refuse in
the midst of the peoples. Lamentations 3:37-45 ; NKJV
In application ...
Repent, oh foolish, rebellious world (this appeal also
includes the satanic world and the lukewarm church).
Turn from your rebellion against the LORD Most High.
Stop murdering the innocent
Discontinue your adultery and other sexual sins
Honor your father and mother, for this is right
Lay aside your passionate, lustful ways
Abstain from your constant lie-telling
Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy
Stop stealing from your neighbor
Put aside your false gods instead,
Bow to the God of love, mercy and grace
Stop taking His holy name in vain
Repent - confess and change - so we can go back to
a sweet New Covenant Song of Moses and delight in
His BLESSINGS as opposed to suffering under His
hand of DISCIPLINE.
May we do so before even greater degrees of His WRATH
fall upon us.

Let's Be WATCHING ...
The Creator of the universe and all things therein said, while
here on earth (Immanuel - God with us), " ... what I say to you
I say to all: Watch!" (Mark 13:37 - NKJV ; ESV reads, "stay awake")
We would strongly encourage further watching in this way:
Because there are end-time precursors to the removal of the
restrainer, thereby allowing for the revealing of the antichrist ( see
II Thes. 2 and our 2nd Wave handout ), there are specific things
which must take place before the man of lawlessness/sin is
revealed. Recall: We're playing Divine Chess here! See
blog CB4B below.
Here are three key events which will take place between now*
and the removal of the restrainer:
1. 10 kings emerge as power authorities over the earth in general
2. A tax imposer / exactor of tribute rises to authority but is
only on the world scene for a short time - see Daniel 11
3. A seemingly minor world player emerges and overcomes
three of the 10 kings - see Daniel 7 & Revelation 17
* The apostasy is already unfolding, though it will increase
in the days ahead.
[ Please note: Seal 3 may happen AFTER the revealing of the
antichrist but could take place prior to his revealing. In fact,
given the economic impact of COVID-19 (and yet-future projections),
we may soon find food prices skyrocket and food availability even
more scarce. WHAT A SETTING for the tax imposer to emerge -
when national governments no longer have funding to offer! ]
Here is wisdom based on God's forever-settled-in-heaven Truths:
Let's be watching - watching in light of GOD's Word.
Our loving Father God has graciously (in His love for all of mankind)
forewarned of signs taking place before His Son's initial appearing.
We are rapidly approaching this glorious event, but first the war
against the saints needs to occur.
Lord, help us to rightly divide Your Word of Truth and thus
rightly discern our day and follow in Your Counsel - sweet
protective Counsel which includes those who endure to
the end will be saved.
And IF you're currently NOT born anew in Christ Jesus, please

The End Days* Of The End Of Days Are Unfolding
Do you recall the movie, 2012 ?
How about the scene in the film where the placard guy on
the street corner is holding his cardboard sign reading,
"Repent! The end is near!" ?
And the funny, crazy radio conspiracy nut who shouts,
"I have goose bumps people!" just before his death as
Yellowstone finally blows its top ? [ By the way, earthquakes
have increased in this area of late! :-) ]
And last, but not least, do you remember the place in the
film where Carl Anheuser (the White House staff member)
says, "[It's] kinda galling when you realize that nutbags with
the cardboard signs had it right the whole time." ?
Friends, let's be discerning and come out from under
the bondage of deception:
God's Word has been right the whole time. As He has been
most accurate regarding His Son's 1st Coming, so too is He
proving to be spot on concerning days just prior to His Son's
We plead with you: Make a decision to receive God's rich
blessings in Jesus Christ.
As famous atheist, William Provine, wrote me months before
his passing in 2015 [ he said, "I agree with you" (regarding our
appeals on our TruthMatters.com site) ], we ask YOU to do
likewise: Agree with God concerning His Truths about the days
prior to the return of His Son and the eternal message of HOPE
He alone offers.
Confess your rebellious sin and He will forgive you. Repent - stop
living a life contrary to God's ways. Instead, as He empowers His
new-born Saints in Christ through His Spirit, live in victorious
light and love as His Word outlines.
You can do it !
Begin by acknowledging you're a sinner who's not perfect - no one
is. Accept God's only provision for forgiveness of sin before Him -
believe and receive the sacrifice of God's heavenly Lamb, Jesus
Christ, who shed His blood to secure forgiveness of sin.
Then, subsequent to New Birth, walk in newness of life - Gal. 2:20.

Stockpiling Is NOT Hoarding
Two questions will serve to bring helpful clarity:
Q1: How do we respond to "You are hoarding!" charges?
A1: Christians are called to speak God's Truths in love as His
Spirit leads us. Some members of our faith community would
say, in response to the question above, something to this effect:
~ Correct stockpiling occurs in non-emergency settings;
Hoarding often - not always - occurs as threats (and needs
for goods - e.g., toilet paper, sanitation items, food, etc.)
~ Correct stockpiling is a faith response of loving obedience
to, in our case, Christ's Counsel in Mt. 24:45-47. Jesus
Christ is our Master;
Hoarders often keep goods for themselves. Self is master.
~ Correct stockpiling better allows for the sharing of
collected goods with others during times of community
need as our Lord Counsels;
Hoarders refuse to honor the Phil. 2:3, 4 principle as
commanded by our Lord in Mark 12:29-31.
Q2: How do we / how will we respond to others - including
governmental authorities - when they reject our right to
disseminate our goods, ones which we've legally and in
good-will action, collected for both ourselves and others?
A2: Will our response be to allow them to confiscate our goods
so they can pass our items out as they deem appropriate OR
will we respond by telling them, "NO, we will be giving out our
goods to others as we deem necessary and we will be doing
so in Jesus Christ's name. YOU (as secular authority voices)
do NOT provide needed goods in Jesus Christ's name due to
your faulty separation of church and state ideology. As a result,
we reserve the right to share our goods in the way(s) we deem
appropriate and as we have the God-given freedom to do so."
Or perhaps there are yet other ways to respond to these possible
present and/or future realities.
These are end of days matters, ones that some are facing today
and will face in the days, months and years ahead.
Our Lord's kind Counsel is both clear and flexible (unlike
some of our government's orders) in that it allows those
wishing to abide in His Counsel the freedom to respond
as their convictions dictate.
May our love of Christ for others AND our love for God be
our guide as His Spirit leads us - His living sacrifices - in light
of the principles in His enduring Word.
Question: So how should we now respond?
Some of you who know us well have rightly guessed!
Answer: We go back to YHVH God's end-time Counsel found
in His precious Word.

CB4B - April, 2020
When playing the game of chess, one encounters the possibility
of multiple moves – many possible ones, actually. And, as we
also well know, the moves are made in light of a basic dynamic
of the game, namely ANOTHER player is involved. So while one
makes moves, it’s with the understanding the other player
may not make response moves in the way (or ways) anticipated.
A similar (Note well: pure analogies almost never exist, if they
exist at all) dynamic is found in future strategy efforts, a game
that is played but often played seriously by some because they
know the future is indeed coming … it’s a really real thing.
Because there are many extraneous variables when it comes to
projecting the future – mankind doesn’t actually KNOW the future –
plans made by these strategists may have to change. Unexpected
things happen. It’s the nature of this beast.
BUT here’s where we enter into an entirely different chess game.
Are we, as God’s people in Jesus Christ, wise enough to consider
an additional dynamic when we play Divine chess ? Do we truly
believe the but God perspective, especially that He knows the
actual future? Do we live our lives in light of this aspect of
Christians often say, “Of course we acknowledge this.”
But do we really?
If we really include – if we truly believe – God’s wisdom in this
significant life game, we’d live very differently than the way
most of us are living today. If we honestly accept His special
revelation, then His church doesn’t have to worry about un-
anticipated corrections/changes. As the analogy goes, we
don’t have to concern ourselves with our opponents going
in different directions (making different moves) than anti-
cipated. Pretty cool!
But some ask, “How so, especially given the many failed
words of counsel on this matter of end times ?”
This is our very point!
God KNOWS the actual future and has communicated key
(most crucial) elements of the future to us – ones that will
indeed come to pass. This is the dynamic of Divine chess
because He does indeed know all things … even the actual
Our appeal: There are a few conditions to our knowing
(correctly) His revelation about future things.
IF we care to retain God’s Big-picture wisdom which He
graciously grants, we need to keep in mind the following:
1. We MUST play by His rules and not inject human
strategy and opinion into the game. We must discern
the incorrect plans and projections of some Christians
because some of the teachings they herald are NOT in
accord with what God has clearly written.
For example: Following the unbiblical game plans
of A. Preterit theology (and the practical application
of this theological perspective: End-time
passages are not for today)
of B. Pre-Tribulationalism (and their tenet that
Christians won’t be on earth during the time
the antichrist seeks to rule)
of C. Pan-Mil / Pan-Trib (especially including this
attitude: We don’t need to concern ourselves
with end-of-days matters) …
following these game plans could be deadly.
If we base our moves on faulty theology (some examples
listed immediately above), we’re in jeopardy of loosing this
eternally significant game. Let’s think on [end time] things
that are actually True – Phil. 4:8.
2. We MUST avoid unbiblical extremes, especially those views
which reject the other facets of the explicitly biblical gem.
For example: Affirming John 10:29, John 3:16, Romans 10:9
and other passages while at the same time rejecting I Tim. 4:1,
Mt. 24:10, II Thes. 2:4 and other on-the-other-side-of-the-coin
passages is also deadly.
In other words, we must walk (play the Divine chess game) in
light of the full Counsel of God’s actual Word, not based on
opinions or interpretations of men, for partial truths can some-
times be used to entrap to the extent of eternally significant
All we’re saying here is this:
We must allow God’s revelation about the end of days to
be that which informs our understanding about future things.
Because His Word will unfold just as He says, we need to be
listening to His Words, not the words of some of the false
prophets and false teachers today.
As we discern the false appeals, we can be confident (in God!)
as we play the Divine chess game using HIS actual Truths.
