Harvard Professors And Tv Producers Do They Really Know Much About The Second Coming Of Christ

In a​ world bent on acquiring ever more knowledge being referred to​ as​ being intelligent has supplanted the​ idea of​ a​ moral and​ decent life. I attended a​ funeral where the​ deceased was known for​ having been a​ cranky, ungodly, unloving man throughout his entire life. I thank God I wasn’t asked to​ give the​ eulogy. the​ person that had to​ deliver the​ eulogy was hard put to​ find a​ decent word to​ say about the​ deceased. I will never forget the​ single word he was able to​ find in​ praise for​ decedent. He said “he was as​ we all know, a​ very intelligent man.”

While being intelligent has never been a​ requirement for​ entering the​ kingdom of​ God it​ is​ also not required for​ interpreting the​ scriptures or​ the​ exposition of​ biblical prophecies. That does not mean that it​ is​ left to​ the​ ignorant to​ tell what is​ in​ the​ scripture. it​ is​ the​ believing and​ faithful alone that are allowed to​ see what the​ word of​ God is​ saying. Jesus said the​ Pharisees heard what he was saying but because they chose not to​ believe it, its truth was concealed from them regardless of​ their intelligence. Both the​ Pharisees and​ today’s scholars and​ scoffers are still making true the​ adage that “The worldly say let me see and​ then I’ll believe while the​ Godly say I believe and​ thus they see”

That revelation and​ understanding is​ kept from certain people has nothing to​ do with their intelligence or​ the​ lack of​ it. in​ fact it​ is​ God himself who promises to​ keep them in​ the​ dark because of​ their unbelief.

He answered and​ said unto them, Because it​ is​ given unto you to​ know the​ mysteries of​ the​ kingdom of​ heaven, but to​ them it​ is​ not given. Matthew 13:11

And he said, Unto you it​ is​ given to​ know the​ mysteries of​ the​ kingdom of​ God: but to​ others in​ parables; that seeing they might not see, and​ hearing they might not understand. Luke 8:10

In that hour Jesus rejoiced in​ spirit, and​ said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of​ heaven and​ earth, that thou hast hid these things from the​ wise and​ prudent, and​ hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for​ so it​ seemed good in​ thy sight. Luke 10:21

The Apostle Paul scoffed at​ the​ scoffers especially those who fancied themselves men of​ letters and​ of​ science. O Timothy, keep that which is​ committed to​ thy trust, avoiding profane and​ vain babblings, and​ oppositions of​ science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the​ faith. Grace be with thee. Amen. 1 Timothy 6:20,21

The learned have never understood the​ principle of​ revelation. it​ is​ not what we learn that shows what God is​ saying but it​ is​ what God reveals to​ us about what he has said that matters. This principle is​ seen in​ Christ’s answer to​ Peter when Peter told him that he knew Jesus was the​ Son of​ the​ Living God. and​ Jesus answered and​ said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for​ flesh and​ blood hath not revealed it​ unto thee, but my Father which is​ in​ heaven. Matthew 16:17

When the​ history channel aired its review of​ the​ Christian view of​ the​ apocalypse they called on several prominent university professors to​ comment on the​ renewed interest in​ the​ doctrines of​ the​ second coming of​ Christ. Many allusions were also drawn from movies like “Left Behind and​ the​ Omen. After presenting what is​ commonly believed in​ the​ church today about the​ second coming, the​ remainder of​ the​ program was used to​ de-bunk or​ cast doubt on those views. Calling on the​ views and​ comments of​ unbelieving doctors of​ divinity and​ TV and​ Hollywood puppets, they managed to​ raise more questions than they answered. Although not a​ laughing matter it​ seemed as​ if​ they were getting their best answers from Dr. Twiddle D.D. and​ Rufus T. Firefly. I think it’s safe to​ say that the​ apostles, prophets and​ certified bible preachers in​ any generation are far more believable than those the​ history channel chose to​ speak for​ them.

Before Christ was born in​ Bethlehem King Herod wanted to​ know where he was to​ be born. He asked his scribes and​ priests who after checking the​ writings of​ the​ prophets they informed Herod that he would be born in​ Bethlehem of​ Ephrata. Two amazing things can be learned from this little bit of​ scripture. First, what could be known about Christ’s first coming was readily available through prophecies contained in​ scripture. the​ second was that this knowledge was used to​ perform one of​ the​ bloodiest child massacres in​ the​ history of​ the​ world.

Nothing much has changed over the​ years. All that can be known about Christ’s second coming can still be found in​ the​ scriptures. and​ for​ those who are unbelieving and​ evil that knowledge will be scoffed at​ or​ misused to​ conduct themselves and​ others to​ their own inevitable judgment.
