Recently at Pike's Peak in Colorado there was a prophecy conference that used a new approach to teaching Bible prophecy. Our broadcast partner David James explains the term which refers to the new approach, the term "Post-modern prophetic paradigm".
David James: When we talk about post modernism in general we're talking about moving into a realm of philosophy and thought where there are no absolutes, that there are many sources of relative truth, that you can look to multiple places to try to get your ideas, truth can be found in any number of places and also isn't just simply something that's objective, that would be post modern.
Then, they are combining these ideas into trying to develop a prophetic view of the future eschatology, end times. There's a convergence of a lot of different strands. A paradigm is simply a model. There's an emerging model of the future eschatology trying to combine ideas from the Bible, from ancient civilizations, from bio technology, just a number of different strands they're trying to put together to layout a potential future scenario.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
False teachers departing from God's Word to teach Bible prophecy is actually setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
The new approach to teaching Bible prophecy, a post-modern prophetic paradigm goes outside the boundaries of the Word of God, Genesis 1:1-Revelation 22:21, and they go outside of these boundaries in an effort to bring information to the table in their teachings of Bible prophecy. This allows for another spirit, the spirit of Satan to influence their thinking. The Apostle Peter wrote 2000 years ago that we have a more sure Word of prophecy, the Bible, II Peter 1:19. In II Peter 2:1 the Apostle says that in the last days there will be false teachers.
Those teaching Bible prophecy with a new paradigm are actually setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
