RECAP: Visions of the KOG 2


D.J. Moo, The Case for the Posttribulation Rapture Position.
“[Jesus probably] ‘telescopes’ A.D. 70 and the end of the age in a manner reminiscent of the prophets, who frequently looked at the end of the age through more immediate historical events.”

Cranfield, Mark, p 404.
“The divine judgments in history are, so to speak, rehearsals of the last judgment and the successive incarnations of antichrist are foreshadowings of the last supreme concentration of the rebelliousness of the devil before the End.”

Luke 21.28: “But when these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads[1], because your redemption is near!”
·       A Gathering NOT a Scattering.
·       A Blessing NOT a Curse.
·       A Victory NOT a Disaster.
·       Ruling NOT Subjugation.

[1] Cp. Rom 8.19, apokaradokiawatching with outstretched neck “for the sons of God to be revealed.”
