The Book of Jubilees is an early ancient Jewish religious work, and translated by English biblical scholar and theologian, R. H. Charles. It was considered an important work for early Christian writers, and was also suppressed to the extent that no Latin or Greek versions survived. Once a part of the Jewish midrash, it is still used widely by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. The Book of Jubilees is highly recommended for those who are interested in early Christian and Jewish writings, and also those who are interested in the publications translated by R. H. Charles.
“PREMILLENNIALISM is that view of the Last Things which holds that the second coming of Christ will be followed by a period of world-wide peace and righteousness, before the end of the world, called ‘the Millennium’ or ‘the Kingdom of God’, during which Christ will reign as King in person on this earth. (Premillennialists are divided into various groups by their different views of the order of events associated with the second coming of Christ, but they all agree in holding that there will be a millennium on earth after the second coming of Christ but before the end of the world )” ( Dr. J. G. Vos, Blue Banner Faith and Life, Jan.-March, 1951 ). Read the rest of this entry »

Broadly speaking there are three general systems which profess to set forth the teaching of Scripture regarding the Second Coming of Christ and the future course of the Kingdom. They are: Postmillennialism, Amillennialism, and Premillennialism.
The essential presuppositions of the three systems are similar. Each holds that the Scriptures are the word of God and authoritative. Each holds to the same general concept of the death of Christ as a sacrifice to satisfy Divine justice and as the only ground for the salvation of souls. Each holds that there will be a future, visible, personal Coming of Christ. Each holds that every individual is to receive a resurrection body, that all are to stand before the judgment seat of Christ, that the righteous are to be rewarded in heaven, and that the wicked are to be punished in hell. Each of the systems is, therefore, consistently evangelical, and each has been held by many able and sincere men. The differences arise, not because of any conscious or intended disloyalty to Scripture, but primarily because of the distinctive method employed by each system in its interpretation of Scripture, and they relate primarily to the time and purpose of Christ’s coming and to the kind of kingdom that is to be set up at His coming.

On the night before his crucifixion Jesus of Nazareth told his followers, “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me… if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself” (John 14:1,3). Jesus assured his closest friends that he would come again, saving them from Israel’s greatest trama.

The Book of Enoch (154 pp, pb) - R. H. Charles, translator
Fine example of the “apocalyptic” style of writings commonly read in the synagogues and churches of the first two centuries BC and AD. Jude quotes from it as if it was both well-known and useful. The highly symbolic language used in Enoch is almost identical to that found in such Biblical books as Daniel and Revelation. Helps one understand this style of writing and interpret it.

ANALYZING THE GOSPEL PRESENTATION
In the introduction you found out what the person is trusting in for salvation. Equally important, he has found out. Until you helped him clarify it, he probably wasn’t aware of what he was trusting in for eternal life. We begin now to tear down this inadequate foundation. Now we are about to show the “product” and show the prospect that he needs it. Remember, you put the value on your product by the way you speak about it. It will seem as valuable to your prospect as it does to you. Think about what you are saying. Talk about God’s Good News in a manner befitting the greater story ever told! The expression on your face may be far more important than the words on your lips. Start thinking about heaven before talking about it! Read the rest of this entry »
