Don K Preston, D. Div, and President of Preterist Research Institute has released a new Game Changing book on Covenant Eschatology. Preston's 15 point attack on futurism of all shades and types leaves no stone unturned and no place to hide. He has effectively dismantled that final hiding place for futurist arguments and laid them to rest in this work.
It is riveting, a great read, an exercise in logic and hermeneutics. I highly recommend it. You may purchase from Amazon.com on Kindle or paperback using this link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BXO5U70.

We have yet reached another milestone in Bible prophecy expectation of the end of the world with the passing of 2012. Remember, the claim that many made regarding the Mayan Calendar which allegedly predicted that Judgment Day would occur on December 21, 2012?
Well, Happy New Year to all! God's promise made to Noah has not failed yet. You can learn about it in this audio podcast. You'll also learn what the name of Christ has to do with prophecies about the end of the world. No, it's not in the newspapers or tabloids, but it is found in the Scriptures for those who believe and others who desire to but can't make their way through the maze of all the prophetic speculation.
It should be obvious that all who prophecy the end of the world is near and that Global Warming is a sign of the end are making it up as they go. Each time, time itself convicts them of falsely prophesying the end times. See why in this record. Read more by visiting our website at AllThingsFulfilled.com.

During the past week, a few of us traveled from various parts of the country to meet in Milwaukee, WI, for the annual ETS Conference (Evangelical Theological Society). In this recording we share a few of our experiences. We set up a book table at our "Preterist Booth" had fellowship and engaged in studies.
This provided a great chance to interact with many of the worlds top scholars through their lectures and some discussions. Also, students came by an visited with us, men and women alike who wanted to share their understanding and faith. For more information visit ETS Conference.
The resurrection of the body is an important subject of eschatology. Futurists, preterists of all sorts and those who espouse Covenant eschatology, all agree that the hope and resurrection of the dead is critical. Yet, variant views of the resurrection body exist. Some believe it is the a physical body that comes out of the ground, others that it is a spiritual body received upon physical death.
Covenant eschatology holds that the body is a corporate, covenantal body which is Christ as a metonomy for his body the church. However, it is a contested issue.
The beginning of the resurrection questions originate with the nature of the death in the garden? Was it physical death that Adam was threatened with or was it spiritual? In the audio we address the consequences and conclusions of rendering the death as physical with a corresponding view to the tree of life having the objective of physical immortality. You can read along by visiting resurrection trumpets.
Another component integral to covenant eschatology is the victory over the law, the strength of sin. Paul said, the sting of the death is sin, the strength of the sin is the law, but thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Having an understanding of how and when the law of Moses ended or was fulfilled helps one to understand the resurrection. See our kindle ebook on the Law of Moses, especially written for those needing or wanting a simple aid for personal and group Bible study.
In this study of Daniels 70 Weeks prophecy, we focus on the larger picture which includes the events of chapter 7, namely the little horn. It is obvious that the character which receives the center of attention is the little horn. The reason behind the other characters is the context which they provide for the manifestation of the little horn's appearance.
The imagery of Daniel 7 is the role the beasts play in the last days of Ancient Israel. The context clearly focuses on judgment, the parousia, and the destruction of the enemies of God. In that respect, the chapter is Continue Reading »
The Prophets of God Experience Layoffs
The prophets exercised a unique function in Israel, primarily to teach the law of God as delivered to Moses, but also to issue warnings and call forth the judgments contained within the law when people refused to obey it.
A major part of the role of the prophet was that of Seer or forth-teller. Through the inspiration of God they were able to foretell the future. This marked their divine office as so unique that Moses wrote, that if the thing prophesied did not come to pass, that is the word which the Lord has not spoken, (Duet. 18:18-21)
Today, many are speaking words claiming to be the prophets of God. Yet, God spoke of the time which would come to pass that the prophets would pass out of the land of Israel. Today's podcast focuses on that text and shows the outcome of ignoring the message. For more information and to see the chart for the lesson by Click Here.
Huge Job Loss For the Prophets
As many prophets considered the prospect of job loss, others turned to new occupations. The issue was not without pre-warning. The Hebrew prophets experience huge layoffs during the intertestament period. They were accustomed to supplementing their income from agriculture and other pursuits.
What is hard to explain is how some got rehired after the company shut down. It is this phenomenon that is somewhat addressed in the podcast message. Not only have some reopened offices that had a mandate for closing, they've continued to persuade people that the office is not closed and attempt to maintain operations.
Ongoing Investigations of the Prophets
For this reason, some are conducting their own investigations of the documents related to the shut down of the prophetic office. They are astonished at the findings.
One common thread in which they all agree is that there most certainly was a date announced for the termination. Now they have to try the case to see if God lied or if the defendants (those claiming to be the prophets of Israel) are lying.
Most of these prophets are not found in Israel, but rather in Christian churches. Ofter they're intention is not to be deceptive, many are ignorant of the laws and instructions given to the prophets.
The Jewish Prophets
The Jewish prophets, often imitated but never duplicated belong to a class all to themselves. They were unique and of limited duration. It is common for some to claim to be prophets today, i.e. inspired men and women who's word hold's equal rank to those written in scripture. Nevertheless the Jewish prophets saw their own efforts as fading into a more permanent form.
Daniel 9:24, speaks of the time of sealing up vision and prophecy. Zechariah 13:1-5, warns against pretending to be a prophet after the prophetic era has closed. Moses gave the litmus test for a true prophet saying that if the thing prophesied does not come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord has not spoken.
We've seen many examples of the alleged prophesied imminent end times in our day yet, it has not occurred. This causes many to believe God's word is untrustworthy. However, it is not a matter of God's veracity but of the interpreter's claim to be a prophet. The audio messages offers more on the subject. See "Why Jewish Prophets Have Ceased?
What is the Rapture?
Study shows definition of three views of the Rapture and their relationship to one common teaching of Scripture. The very term used by which the Rapture teaching is defined creates problems with both the definition and the likelihood of the rapture occurrence.
Of recent, there have been major failed attempts at the raptureready headquarters of Harold Camping and others. May 21, 2011 and it's back up date of October 12, 2011, were major embarrassments. Some are even making predictions for 2012, especially with what is believed to be evidence from the Mayan calendar, a non-biblical source!

The year 2012 is dawning upon us and with it will be more speculation on the end of the world. In today's podcast we present some of the reasons why 2012 will be another year as the previous as far as the end of the world as we know it is concerned. The End of the World May 21, 2011 was exposed as the work of charlatans preying upon the uninformed masses who believed that the end was near. Many sold possessions believing they would be raptured from the earth.
It is sad that some radio ministries carry more authority with people than the Bible. We're not against radio ministries. We have one of our own. What we hope to encourage is that people read to ensure they are not being sold a bill of goods about the end of the planet.
Such fatalism sounds good, is commercially profitable but is not scriptural. Check out today's podcast for more information on the end of the world 2012. Also visit the blog for the written version here at End of the World 2012 AllThingsFulfilled.com
Israel was blind-sided by the righteousness of God. We cannot charge the failure with God. He published his message throughout the entire land during the first century evangelism campaign of the Apostles. However, as Paul explained what happened to Israel in Romans 11 and 2 Cor. 4:4.
For those of the remnant who accepted the righteousness of God, the Bible demonstrates "who" righteousness is and "how" it was obtained. Unfortunately, many, zealous for the Law of Moses, stumbled in their failure to see the end of that which was passing away.
They could not grasp that God had designed a righteousness through the law and the prophets but which was apart or separate from the law and the prophets. This lessons sheds insight on the truth Israel was blinded to and how we can prevent the same blindness.
