Apokalypsis

The Book of Revelation was written in the first century, penned by the apostle John. But as we’re told in the first verse, it is the “revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave to him ….” The word revelation is the Greek, apokalypsis. Literally it means a laying bare, which we can take to mean holding nothing back, showing everything. In this case, it is a book of revealing.

The Great Rebellion, The Curious Elephant

We've lost our spiritual purity. And it is clear in the prophecies. In Isaiah 63 we read that Christ will turn to be our enemy in the end-times because we, the House of Israel, "have rebelled and vexed his Holy Spirit." But we don't take note of these warning prophecies because we don't know our Biblical identity. And refusing to acknowledge our true Biblical identity means we can never heed the warning in the prophecies meant for us. It's a lethal Catch-22.

Don’t Take Our Word For It

In our books and articles, we take a heurisitc approach. We admonish readers not to take our word for it. Or as the Royal Society has it in their motto, nullius in verba, which is to say, take nobody's word for it. Granted, this may be a bit of an odd approach to take when publishing theological articles, but each of us needs to prove our beliefs for ourselves, for each of us has to answer for our own actions. Therefore, we should heed the advice given to us by the apostle Paul who told the ekklesia at Thessalonica “To prove all things, and hold fast that which is good” or those things which are of God. [1 Ths. 5:21].
