Figurative Language in Bible Prophecy

     The following is from the February 2018 edition of Understanding Bible Prophecy, available from Way of Life Literature.

We use figurative speech frequently in normal conversation (e.g., “he’s as fast as lightening”; “she broke his heart,” “he twists truth like a nose of wax”; “he has stirred up a hornet’s nest”). Men write songs, poetry, and works of fiction that incorporate figurative language.
    In the Bible, figurative language is used for the same purposes as in ordinary speech and it is interpreted by the same rules, but it is used for other purposes, as... Read More

Hadrian: The Enemy of God

    The following is excerpted from Jews in Fighter Jets: Israel Past, Present, and Future, 550 pages, available from Way of Life Literature.
    Sixty years after the destruction of the second temple under the leadership of Titus, there was a final Jewish revolt (AD 132-135).
    Called the Bar Kokhba revolt, it was led by Simon ben Kosiba.
    The occasion of the Bar Kokhba revolt was Emperor Hadrian’s (Publius Aelius Hadrianus) (r. 117-138) plan to build a Roman city over the ruins of Jerusalem. After its destruction in AD 70, it had not been rebuilt.

    Hadrian became emperor in AD 117, following Trajan... Read More
