Inhaltsangabe: Perhaps nothing is more hopeful for the Christian than the promise of the Rapture, which for many is indeed the blessed hope. The church, because of its acceptance of differing theological teachings from the early church fathers to our day, has inherited increasing disagreements in eschatology, such as amillennialism, postmillennialism and premillennialism, that render completely different views of the Rapture. This work showcases the facts from history that show how pagan philosophy integrated with some early church fathers' writings that were influential in the establishment of schools of theology; in them we find a steady departure from an earlier predominent view of biblical literalism, to a more progressive view of allegorical interpretation. This book is the result of years of prayerful study, historical research and conviction, and a desire to inform the church of how our differences in interpretation have impaired what should be a bilbically harmonious understanding among our members. The primary thrust of this work is in showing the biblical proof the Scripture harmoniously reveals when we maintain a distinction between Israel and the Church--a premillennial, pre-tribulation Rapture. It also shows the result and high cost of a non-harmonious interpretation. From Philo of Alexandria to modern day theologians, the historical record reveals how humanistic, philosophical, institutionalized theology has affected the church's ability to correctly interpret and convey what the holy Scriptures have to say regarding this beautiful doctrine. God is not the author of confusion, and Scripture gives one interpretation only. The apostle Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 2:12-13: "Now we have received the Spirit of God, not the spirit of the world, so we can know the things freely given to us by God. These things are not in words taught by human wisdom--the wisdom of this world, but by the Holy Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words." Knowing this, then, this work reveals what happens when schools of theological thought insist on an incongruent standard of hermeneutic principles, compared to what results from a harmonious one. To God be the glory.
Über den Autor: Michael Ormiston has been a slave of Christ since 1990. An evangelist by calling, he loves the Word of God, and for the last eight years or so his studies have concentrated on the subject of Biblical prophecy, and the continuing role of Israel in God's redemptive plan. He has read extensively from early church writings, histories of the Jewish people, theological commentaries and of course God's eternal, unchanging Word. As a result of all these things, he became passionately and joyfully convinced that God's promises for a millennial reign on earth would be fulfilled literally, and that the Church would not be called upon to suffer through the tribulation. This book represents the culmination of all his research and study, and he prays it may prove a blessing to the reader. Michael lives in Texas with his wife and three children, where he does whatever work the Lord gives him as he waits for His Coming.
