Introduction to Covenant Creation

Some of you have probably already seen this article. It first appeared in the Winter Issue of Fulfilled Magazine. I'm posting a link here for those who do not subscribe to that impressive work done by Brian Martin.

The Resurrection: Corporate or Individual

Now for that post script I see there are questions regarding the Corporate and Individual Body usage in scripture. I wrote this little excerpt about 5 years ago in response to the same questions Ed brings up and is being discussed. I’m going to add a little more at the end to “flesh” it out just a tad more.

Subject: Re: The Resurrection: Corporate or Individual

As I have stated earlier I believe it is imperative that when introducing the “body” corporate…

Who or What Was the Devil and Should I Care?

I'm not very active on this site or any others for that matter due to significant time constraints with my family, farm, and business. But over the course of my slower season this winter I wrote 6 articles on my private Facebook page concerning this topic. My audience was mostly friends from church or school over the years who for the most part have typical evangelical and/or futurist leanings. This is not a scholarly work (though I tried to write it with a quasi-scholarly bent), nor is it…

What was Adam's death?

What was Adam's death?

Adam was promised the death for eating from the Tree of The Knowledge of Good and Evil. What kind of death was it?

Some say this death was physical death. Some say this death was spiritual death. And some say this death was spiritual death followed by physical death 900-some years later.

Physical Death:

Some believe Adam was created immortal, that, had Adam not sinned, he would never die. Does this make any sense?

Before Adam sinned,…

The State of the Covenant Creation Debate

Hello All!



Just thought I should mention to everyone that we have posted a new article at BeyondCreationScience.com. This new item relates to the ongoing debate over Covenant Creation.



Our article provides more context for the recent formal paper released by Jerel Kratt. We have also produced a graph that visually presents the two views in contention side-by-side for those who are… Continue

The "then world" versus the "now heavens and earth" in 2 Peter 3:6-7

The “then world” versus the “now heavens and earth” in 2 Peter 3:6-7:

Is Peter saying that “world” equals “heavens and earth?”




By Jerel Kratt

January 12, 2010



Introduction



This paper refutes Sam Frost’s position that Peter uses “heavens and earth” and “world” synonymously in 2 Peter 3:6-7. Such a position is critical to Frost’s rebuttal of the basic premise proposed by Tim Martin and Jeff Vaughn, authors of “Beyond Creation Science” (BCS), that… Continue

What Covenant Creation Isn't

At the end of 2007, Tim Martin and I published the 3rd edition of Beyond Creation Science.  This is the edition is which we first defined and developed Covenant Creation.  Before this, only one conference paper had been issued on the subject.



Imagine our surprise, while the book was still at the printer, Ed Stevens had published in the Dec. 2007 issue of Fulfilled Magazine a critique of Covenant Creation.  …

Who was Adam in Genesis 6?

In the previous article http://deathisdefeated.ning.com/profiles/blogs/the-problem-of-context-in-the-genealogy-of-genesis-5?xg_source=activity, we established that the flood account was embedded in the Genesis 5 genealogy.  That genealogy ended with the last two verses of Genesis 9.



In Genesis 6, the embedded account starts with

The Problem of Context in the Genealogy of Genesis 5

We rarely read things in the Bible in their proper context.  Part of this has to do with the chapter and verse divisions.  I’d like for everyone to read this extended text from Genesis straight through starting near the end of Genesis 4, all the way to my chosen end.



You will notice, in Genesis 4 that we have the birth of Seth and Enosh.  The first two verses of tell us a bit about Adam (the meaning of these two verses is not germane to…

THE COSMOLOGY OF ISRAEL'S COVENANT, LAND AND TEMPLE

(TLM editorial note: A few years ago I spoke at a Preterist conference and developed the temple imagery in Genesis. The message was never taped and I didn't have time to cover all of my material. Here is some of that material I covered at the conference. I do NOT make Genesis issues a test of fellowship and I try and approach the subject with… Continue

Covenant Creation: A Demonstration from Colossians

Have you ever wondered if Covenant Creation can be demonstrated directly from the text of the New Testament?

One of the neat things about active ministry in a local congregation is how you will be forced, on a regular basis, into systematic study of God's Word with its application to daily life. I spent most of my preaching schedule in 2012 at Covenant Community Church working verse by verse through…

Adam and “Death” to “all” men

I want to piggy back off of a post that Larry made on the SGP site. Larry brings up the point that “those who are “saved” implies the necessity of logical limitation” concerning the use of Paul’s “all”. IMO this is an extremely important point to recognize concerning the language of the scriptures. There is an inherent propensity by Christians to “assume” that the “all” that is spoken of by Paul is to be inferred universally toward all men in context to the discussion. Well yes and no. Yes when… Continue

The Preterist Implications for Modern Political Theory

I have been thinking about this subject for quite some time. In fact, I recently preached a sermon developing out what I believe to be some preterist implications for political theory in the modern world. You can find that sermon as Part 36 of my sermon series through the gospel of Mark.

 

Here is the short story. The…

If Resurrection Means "Stand Again," Where was the First Standing?

On the radio program Two Guys and a Bible, with about 35 min. to go, William Bell said something quite interesting and more profound than he realized.



Earlier, William had said that Paul got his doctrine from the law and the prophets. Mike had asked, what text of the law Paul had used to teach the resurrection. William said nothing specific but mentioned Adam who is prominent in 1 Cor. 15. (The… Continue

Rev 20:7-10 (Post Millennium)?

Recently a discussion was brought up by a good friend concerning Duncan and Doug W.’s Premillennial Preterism on a closed forum I belong to. I typically have to stay away from these detailed discussions because they require a lot of energy, thought and time to enter into intelligently.  Against my better judgment I decided to enter in even though I don’t have the time and energy I used to be able to allocate to these issues. Partially this is because I’m not giving Duncan and Doug a fair…

Integrating Covenant Creation and Noah's Flood in Prophetic Context

My apologies to those who have already listened to these recordings on the 01-27-12  Hairy Ticks Variety Show.  I thought I should repackage the material in a dedicated blog post to better describe the content. This will help for future reference.

The Timing of Judgment on the Nations following Judgment upon Israel

 

I recently posted this response on a personal blog with some others but no one has responded to it yet so I’m going to repost it here in hopes I can get some interaction with some of you here on DID.  My premise is in response to questions concerning the Judgment upon the Nations and the timing of it in relation to AD70 and judgment upon Israel. IMO it appears from all indications that Judgment must first occur concerning Israel and then Judgment occurs upon the Nations.  As many of…
