Eternal rest and joy in the presence of God are without doubt the supreme hope of the believer. While there is relatively little in Scripture telling us exactly what we are to expect in the World to Come, there are nevertheless a number of references to New Heavens and a New Earth that do indeed supply a glimpse of our eternal home. In order to understand these things better, we have added a new audio section on the New Heavens and New Earth, containing lectures by Dr. G.K. Beale and Dr. D.A. Carson. May they richly increase your faith, expectation, and listening pleasure!
We just added a series of audio sermons on the book of the prophet Jeremiah by Dr. D.A. Carson. The sermons are a broad overview of various chapters in the book but we feel are most useful in the study of this wonderful Old Testament prophetic book. There sermons can be accessed here.
Dr. Kim Riddlebarger posted an interesting review of a book authored by Dr. David Jeremiah titled Agents of the Apocalypse. The book seemingly uses fictional characters to help people understand the book of Revelation. Dr. Riddlebarger argues in this article that there is a tremendous inconsistency in using fictional characters while adhering to the dispensationalists hermeneutical principle to interpret the bible “literally”.
Also this week, Dr. Sam Storms posted a couple of posts on his blog dealing with the importance of the second coming of the Lord Jesus titled Four Important Truths Relating to the Second Coming of Christ (Part 2). While many are waiting for raptures and women riding beasts, Dr. Storms suggests that much of what we must anticipate in the 2nd -coming is found in the text of Hebrews 9:27-28
Finally, we posted an excellent article written by Dr. D.A. Carson on the question of the most common errors in our understanding and proclamation of the Kingdom. The article has been posted under our Kingdom section.
