John Alley

Once again John Alley brings a message about “end times”, beginning with an examination of the meaning of the “coming” of Christ and then giving an overview of the book of Revelation. Revelation, John explains, is the most Jewish of all the books of the New Testament, drawing greatly on Jewish symbols, history, concepts and nuances of language. The book was written to the seven churches of Asia, at a time when there was a larger percentage of Jewish Christians in the Asian region, and there was a huge emphasis on Emperor worship. John examines events from history which all point to the book of Revelation being written in about 64 or 65 AD.

With this understanding, then, it is very easy to see that most of the prophecy of the book of Revelation has been fulfilled in the great tribulation and suffering inflicted on the Church by the Emperor Nero. Therefore, the Beast referred to in the book would seem to most likely have been Nero himself. John explains many fascinating facts including the source of the number 666 and then goes on to say that as for the future, we have hope, a great calling, a great many promises and a Messiah King ruling in Heaven. We should be encouraged, says John, that although difficult times will come for some people, the Gospel triumphs over them all and we need to pour ourselves out in service to God for the furtherance of the Kingdom.

Gary DeMar

In February of 2013, three biblical scholars set out to debate discuss three separate views of Revelation in Reno, Nevada.

Dr. Sam Waldron, academic dean of Midwest Center for Theological Studies and professor of systematic theology debated discussed the Idealist position.
Gary DeMar, M. Div, Reformed Theological Seminary debated discussed the (partial) Preterist position.
Dr. James Hamilton, Asst. Professor of biblical studies, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary debated discussed the futurist position.

What happened however turned out not to be a typical talking head debate symposium on the book of Revelation.

Gary DeMar, author, Christian apologist, president of American Vision and editor in chief of Biblical Worldview Magazine returns to our broadcast to reveal “The Identity of the Beast of Revelation and the Anti-Christ”!

The series of lectures on the Gospel of Matthew were delivered by Bible-teacher Steve Gregg at the Youth with a Mission (YWAM) School of Biblical Studies in Vancouver, BC in March 2018.

John Alley

Once again speaking on the subject of eschatology, John Alley begins this message with a brief outline of the life of Rev Richard Johnson, who arrived on the First Fleet 226 years ago. Rev Johnson achieved remarkable things, says John, as did his contemporaries Wilberforce and Newton. So what did these men have in common that resulted in the great works that they achieved? Clearly, all 3 believed in our wonderful Saviour, but in addition these men did NOT believe that the world was almost at an end, and therefore whole-heartedly poured out their lives in service to Christ.

John, examining the Passage from Matthew 24 and 25, outlines 13 differences in the 2 parts of this passage, each of which answers one of the two questions posed to Jesus in Matthew 24:3. This verse is often interpreted as being one question, but a closer examination clearly proves that there were actually 2 questions, and therefore 2 answers. The first question and answer have already been fulfilled, but the second is still in the future. We should not, therefore, become complacent but should work for the Kingdom of God.

Gary DeMar

People often make the mistake of not getting all the facts on the table before they make a case about the facts. Example: Bible prophecy is often misinterpreted when Christians assume Bible passages must fit into their presupposed eschatology. “Pay no mind to what the Bible says—I’ve already made up my mind what the Bible means….” Gary DeMar urges watchers to take Biblical facts at face value, and not reorder or redefine the facts to fit your presupposed beliefs.

John Alley

John Alley’s message begins with an overview of Daniel Chapter 9, before focusing on verse 24 in particular. John observes that many people, preoccupied with their own view of end times, have unfortunately imported difficulty into these verses that was not intended by the Lord when speaking with the prophet Daniel. It was given to Daniel, the angel said, so that he would “understand.”

The End is Nigh–or is It?

Gary DeMar continues discussing an e-mail he received questioning his viewpoint on the end times. Gary discusses how the “last days” in the Bible apply to New Covenant times, not to some futuristic event, and addresses the issue of things supposedly getting worse before Christ returns.
