The Covenant Creation Archive

The purpose of the “Covenant Creation Archive” is to provide those desiring to sincerely and diligently look into a covenantal, non-concordist framework for Genesis creation which harmonizes the beginning of the Bible (creation) with the end of the Bible (Revelation) with a…

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.  …

New Covenant = a better sacred trust: many called, few chosen. r u clothed in equity?

    how has one's journey continued in spiritual maturity after a realization of a full preterist view of the covenants?  have we failed to fully comprehend what a covenant is, and how to not enter into them again after being redeemed by so great a…

The Giving of the Law

When was law first given?

12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned— 13 (For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had…

The Fundamentalist Hermeneutic vs. a Conservative Hermeneutic

It is easy to overlook the importance of hermeneutic principles in any theological discussion. (Our English word “hermeneutics” comes from the Greek word hermeneuo which means “to interpret.” Hermeneutics is the art and science of interpretation.) Most disagreements over biblical interpretation arise when two people with different hermeneutic assumptions look at a text of Scripture and come to different conclusions. The differences do not come from the text itself. Both people read the same…

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,…

How Many People Were on the Ark?

Everybody knows that there were eight people saved by Noah's ark.  But what we typically fail to realize is that some people don't count.  Servants for instance.



I'd like to compare two events, Noah's Flood and Jacob's travel to Egypt, to show that the ancients counted people differently than we do today.  …

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…

The Cream Rises to the Top

It is no secret that the partial preterist world tries its best to marginalize consistent preterism. Gary DeMar has called the movement a "tar baby" with only about 100 people in it. 

With that in mind, these two episodes of "Back to the Bible" with Woodrow Kroll, were quite surprising and may be harbingers of what is to come upon the partial preterist world. 

Kroll is embarking on an…
