Harlot of Babylon According to Irvin Baxter, Part 4by Karl Kemp
We discuss Deuteronomy 6:4 and Isaiah 9:6 in some detail. These are two of the verses most often used by oneness Christians to try to prove oneness. We also begin a discussion of John 1:1-18, which is one of the important passages where we learn of the eternal Son of God who was with the Father before any creating took place and through whom all things (including all beings and matter) were created.
Harlot of Babylon According to Irvin Baxter, Part 3by Karl Kemp
We continue the discussion on the deity of Christ Jesus, the Trinity, and baptizing in the name of Jesus on the Day of Pentecost. We discuss the Council of Nicea and I quote the Nicene Creed, and we begin a discussion of Deuteronomy 6:4, which is extremely important. We must understand that that verse had nothing (zero) to do with denying the subsequent progressive revelation of the three Persons in the Trinity. That verse, like many other verses, was designed to powerfully refute the polytheism that permeated the ancient world
Must Christians OBEY AN EVIL GOVERNMENT?by Eugene Lopatynsky
A passage in Romans is often quoted as an excuse to obey all authority, whether good or bad. Quoted especially by those who receive a bribe of tax-free money in return for bowing before (for never resisting) the POLITICAL forces of Satan.
Harlot of Babylon According to Irvin Baxter; Trinity and Oneness, Part 2by Karl Kemp
We discuss some of Irvin Baxter's wrong statements, like there wasn't any baptizing in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit until after the Council of Nicea in AD 325. We also discuss the fact that the primary thing that caused many of the Pentecostals to accept the oneness (one Person) viewpoint and break away from the Assemblies of God (which had just been organized in 1914) in 1916 was the topic of water baptism in the name of Jesus in the book of Acts.
THE PEACE MAKERby Dr Surya Kumar Daimari
It is really wonderful to see how God created this beautiful world. The crimson sun-rise between the mountains, the orange sun-set beyond the blue skies, the torrent rivers, the emerald green valleys, the whispering seas, the ice capped mountains turned crimson white, the fascinating glory of flora and fauna.they all manifest the splendid glory of God.
God's Knowledge of the Future Is Unlimited: A Brief Attempt to Expose the Error of Open Theismby Max Aplin
In the last few decades, a serious error has arisen within Christianity that has come to be known by the term 'open theism'. Open theists argue that, because human beings have genuine free will, God cannot know for sure what their future actions will be. However, open theism not only contradicts the Bible, but the genuine free will of people is entirely compatible with God's exhaustive knowledge of the future.
Critique of Irvin Baxter's "Revelation Commentary," Part 8by Karl Kemp
We discuss Rev. 7:4-8 and Rev. 14:1 (and 3) with an emphasis on the symbolic numbers 144,000 and 12,000. We also discuss the use of symbolic numbers in Rev. 21:16 and 17, verses that deal with the dimensions of new Jerusalem and its wall. Then we discuss Rev. 12:5, which is a verse of key importance. I believe it is the most important verse in the Bible that shows that the Lord Jesus will return and the glorification and rapture will take place right in the middle of Daniel's 70th week.
Critique of Irvin Baxter's "Revelation Commentary," Part 7by Karl Kemp
We discuss Joel 2:30, 31 and Daniel 11:40-45 here in Part 7. These passages prophesy of the super-intense warfare of the short great tribulation. Then we discuss Revelation 10:7 and the sounding of the seventh and last trumpet. Then the symbolic numbers (144,000 and 12,000) of Revelation 7:4-8 and 14:1, 3.
Critique of Irvin Baxter's "Revelation Commentary," Part 6by Karl Kemp
We discuss Matthew 24:21, 22, verses where Jesus prophesied of the short great tribulation that will follow the abomination of desolation of Matthew 24:15. Then we will discuss Revelation 9:13-21 verse-by-verse, which is the most important cross-reference that prophesies of the short, but very intense warfare of the short great tribulation.
Critique of Irvin Baxter's "Revelation Commentary," Part 5by Karl Kemp
We will discuss the demonic locusts of the fifth trumpet that will sting people (but not believers) for five months in the first half of Part 6. Then we will begin to discuss the sixth trumpet. The sixth trumpet will sound about the time of the abomination of desolation. It is very important to see that Dan. 12:11 enables us to see that the abomination of desolation will take place a month before the middle of Daniel's 70th week.
Critique of Irvin Baxter's "Revelation Commentary," Part 4by Karl Kemp
We discuss Revelation 8:1-5 here in Part 4, which includes breaking the seventh seal so that the scroll that the Lord Jesus took from the hand of God the Father in chapter 5 can now be opened. These verses prepare the way for the seven angels with the seven trumpets to begin to sound. In verse 5 an angel, or more likely the Angel/Messenger of God (the Son of God), casts fire to the earth to initiate judgment. We will discuss the warning judgments of the first four trumpets.
Critique of Irvin Baxter's "Revelation Commentary," Part 3by Karl Kemp
We discuss the fourth through the sixth seals of the book of Revelation here and begin to discuss the trumpets. I'll briefly discuss the fifth seal here. Under the fifth seal the souls of all the people who have been martyred for God are given white robes. They have to be resurrected (right in the middle of the seven years) before they can receive and wear these white robes. They are informed that they will have to wait for a while for God to vindicate their shed blood because many more Christians (many of those who become Christians after the rapture) will be martyred during the super-evil reign of Antichrist that will take place throughout the second half of Daniel's 70th week. We see those martyrs resurrected and glorified in Rev. 20:4 (also see Rev. 15:2-4).
IS THERE A TRINITY?by Eugene Lopatynsky
The Vatican has taught all of Europe that the Trinity does encompass a Godhead of three completely equal beings. That is completely contrary to the evidence of the Bible. There is no multiple Godhead; Biblically, only ONE BEING holds that distinction. If you say there is a Trinity, then this term would combine two DIFFERENT LEVELS of pre-eminence and authority. There is no equality in authority or excellence among them at all. ON THE HIGHEST LEVEL RESIDES ONLY FATHER GOD. HE IS ALONE ON THAT LEVEL, WITHOUT EQUAL. Behold:
Critique of Irvin Baxter's "Revelation Commentary," Part 2by Karl Kemp
We continue to discuss the beasts/world-kingdoms of Daniel chapters 2 and 7 and Rev. 13:1-3 here in Part 2. Then we begin a discussion of the seals of the book of Revelation. We thoroughly discuss the rider on the white horse of the first seal of Rev. 6:1, 2. Most believe the rider is Christ Jesus (or the gospel of the kingdom, or the equivalent) or Antichrist; Baxter says Catholicism.
Critique of Irvin Baxter's "Revelation Commentary," Part 1 of 8 Partsby Karl Kemp
"Irvin Baxter is the founder and president of EndTime Ministries. He is a television and radio host, author, publisher, and international prophecy teacher. ... Publication of 'EndTime Magazine' began in 1991 and has now become the most widely circulated prophecy magazine in the world." (Taken from his webpage.) It is obvious that Irvin Baxter is an influential end-time teacher. I agree with Baxter on many things, but a primary purpose for this paper is to discuss significant places where I have to disagree with him. I interact with his "Revelation Commentary" throughout this paper.
Beware of Taking Genesis 1-3 Too Literallyby Max Aplin
Many Christians, who are rightfully distressed by godless theories of how the universe and mankind originated, seem to think that one way to oppose these theories is to insist on a fully literal interpretation of Genesis 1-3. In fact, a close reading of these chapters shows that it is a mistake to take them fully literally. Christians should strive to be balanced in their dealings with modern science.
Was Moses King David's Role Model?by Cate Russell-Cole
Saul had very few righteous role models, and probably did not relate to the prophets. He learnt how to be a king from the example of the surrounding pagan nations. So who did David use as a role model? Could it have been Moses and if so, how alike were they?
"GOD IS"by GERALD PIPPIN
The true existence of the Living God ia the most constant factor in all creration. The existence of humankind is a continuing proof of this.
Once. Just Onceby Ammishaddai Ofori
