“How Do I Read the Book of Revelation?”

In Revelation 9:1-11 we read of locusts that come out of the abyss. If we try to over-interpret, we’ll end up saying these are Apache helicopters, with the teeth being .50 caliber machine guns, the hair being the fire out of the exhaust pipe, the breast-plates being the titanium armor, and the tails being tomahawk missiles.

Astonished by Millennial Temple Foolishness

After Christ reigns for 1,000 years over glorified saints who came back from heaven, multitudes led by Gog and Magog rebel against God! Where did all these wicked people come from? Does this mean that in the perfect age to come, glorified saints will mingle with sinful people?

June 3, 2008

Many who oppose evangelical Zionism rejoiced in the recent McCain-Hagee debacle. It can't get better than this, they think.

Weber wrote a thorough historical and theological analysis of the reasons why evangelicals love Israel in a Christianity Today article entitled "How Evangelicals Became Israel's Best Friend." Here are a couple of his points...
