A Look at Isaiah 28:16 The Foundation Stone for the Messianic Temple 1 Thess 4:13-18, Review of Johnny Oxendine Bellview Church of Christ Eschatology
Johnny Oxidene of California approaches the text of 1 Thessalonians from a contemporary time frame. He claims the same type of error perpetrated then is perpetrated today. He speaks of those who remain alive in Paul’s day as though they are alive today. The following are the claims made for the futurist view of eschatology. He reads texts but does little if any exegesis.
The world is over.The text applies to everyone.Has anyone made an improper application of the Scripture.Argues “those who sleep’ refers to physical deathIf there is no hope the Bible is uselessClaims preterists are splintering, hyperpreterist, consistent preterist, redirectionalistSecond coming happens at unexpected time as a thief in the nightSays Chist would not come soon, per 2 Thess. 2:3What would people do if they knew exactly when that day was. All kind of sin till a day before.By the word of the Lord, prophetic word spoken by the Lord to PaulWe who are alive and remain (that seems to be us, i.e. 21st century ChristiansActs 1:11, No hermeneutic could allow for a figurative interpretation of these versesWe know not the day or the hourCalls it blasphemous indignance2 Thess. 1:7-102 Pet 3:10-12 reserved unto fire and judgment (can’t reconcile with destruction of Jerusalem)
