A FULL PRETERIST RESPONSE TO “HOLY LAND,” “END OF TIME,” “HOLY WAR” ESCHATOLOGIES – PART 2 JUDAISM (THE ARTICLE FACEBOOK DOESN’T WANT YOU TO READ!)

By Michael J. Sullivan (Copyright 2014) We are continuing our study of the three eschatologies (views of prophecy) within Islam, Judaism, and “Christian” Dispensational Zionism which emphasize a “in the land,” “end time,” “holy war,” by which their god or religion overcomes the others. These views of eschatology have contributed to the perpetual war in the Middle East and around…

My Full Preterist Response To John MacArthur’s (“Strange Fire” – Cessationist) V. Michael Brown’s (“Authentic Fire” – Charismatic) Part 7 – Argument #5 The “Greater Works” Of John 14:12 & Interaction With Matt Waymeyer – Professor At The Master’s Seminary

In his book Authentic Fire (pp. 188-190) Charismatic Dr. Michael Brown believes since “whoever believes in me” is a universal term in other contexts (cf. Jn. 6:35; 7:38; 11:25; 12:44, 46), this must be the case here in John 14:12. Therefore, he concludes that believers (prior to a Christ’s return which he assumes is future) can ask God in prayer…

My Full Preterist Response To John MacArthur’s “Strange Fire” (Cessationist) V. Michael Brown’s “Authentic Fire” (Charismatic) Part 4 – Argument #2 The Last Days & Acts 2

I am continuing my series in critiquing Dr. Michael Brown (Charismatic – Authentic Fire) and Pastor John MacArthur (Cessationist – Strange Fire). While I agree with Pastor MacArthur that the sign and revelatory gifts have ceased, I also agree with Dr. Brown that MacArthur (and Cessationist Futurists in general) does/do not have an exegetical case against the main Charismatic arguments/texts…

My Full Preterist Response To The Various Views Of “That Which Is Perfect” (1 Corinthians 13:10) Part 2 – John MacArthur’s “Strange Fire” (Cessationist) V. Michael Brown “Authentic Fire” (Charismatic)

Introduction Before examining the various views of “that which is perfect” in (1 Cor. 13:10), let’s briefly review part 1 which was a an examination of MacArthur’s historical arguments and his appeals to exhort his readers and listeners into “Reformed Theology.” As we saw, if we are “consistent” (something MacArthur values) in following Reformed theology (and eschatology since it cannot…
