Friday Church News Notes

I LOVE THE PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE (Friday Church News Notes, January 17, 2020, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - I love the Bible’s teaching about the Pre-tribulation Rapture. I have studied it for nearly half a century, and have no doubt that it is a Bible doctrine and that it is a fundamental doctrine. It is not based on any one verse; it is based on the totality of the Bible’s teaching on prophecy. If you interpret Bible prophecy in a consistent normal-literal manner, which is the only proper way to interpret it, you land on the clear distinction between the church and Israel, and you understand the 70 Weeks of Daniel 9 and Revelation..

Christ the Seed of the Woman
    ‘And I will put enmity between thee and -- the woman, and between thy seed and -- her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” (Genesis 3:15).
    
This is the first gospel message and the first Messianic prophecy. “Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world” (Ac. 15:18). “Then said I, Lo, I come, in the volume of the book it is written of me” (Ps. 40:7). “Here was the dawning of the gospel day. No sooner was the wound given than the remedy was provided and revealed” (Matthew Henry).
    The coming of the Messiah to crush the serpent’s head is all of grace and mercy. It is entirely undeserved and unearned by fallen man. The man and the woman stood there that day utterly condemned, without any hope to escape the terrible

The Fundamental Doctrine of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture
     In our estimation, the doctrine of the Pre-tribulation Rapture is a fundamental of the New Testament faith. While I can’t answer every question that can be asked on this issue (or any other major doctrine), I find more than enough clear Scripture to settle the timing of the Rapture and to be convinced that it is an essential doctrine..

Spurgeon’s Wrong View of Dispensationalism
    Charles Spurgeon preached the following in December 1867 in a sermon on "The Mystery of Godliness”--
"Let me also say that I do not perceive anything in this summary
tending remarkably to exalt prophecy. I would not make this remark if it were not that there is a certain troublesome sect (c) abroad nowadays to whom the one thing needful is a perpetual speculation upon prophecy. All the bells in their steeple ring out 'prophecy! prophecy! prophecy!' They plume themselves upon an expected secret rapture, and I do not know what vain imaginings besides. Where prophecy is preached in connection with their shibboleth, there the gospel is preached, and all ministers besides their own, however honoured by God, are railed at by them as part of Babylon, against whom men are to be warned. They, truly, are wise men, and can afford superciliously to look down upon their fellow Christians as the slaves of sect and system, being.. Read More

UK JUDGE RULES THAT WOMAN “NOT WORTHY OF RESPECT” FOR SAYING MEN CANNOT BE WOMEN (Friday Church News Notes, January 10, 2020, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “Woman ‘not worthy of respect,’” The Christian Post, Dec. 19, 2019: “A woman who was ousted from her job for writing on Twitter that men who identify as transgender are not women has lost her case before an employment tribunal that said her views are ‘not worthy of respect.’ In a highly anticipated ruling, an employment tribunal decided that Maya Forstater, formerly a senior researcher at the London office of the think-tank Centre for..

Evidence for the Creator Is Irrefutable
    Atheists claim that there is no evidence for God, and agnostics claim that the evidence is not sufficient. The Bible reveals the secrets of men’s hearts to show that atheists and agnostics are deceiving themselves.
    “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is

Did Luther Use Worldly Music?
     The following material is excerpted from chapter twelve of the book The Battle for Christian Music by Tim Fisher (used by permission, copyright 1992, 211 pages -- order from Discover Christian Music, 519 Piedmont Golf Course Rd., Piedmont, SC 29673, 800-767-4326)
    
We hear the question constantly asked, "Didn't Luther borrow from the secular music of his day? Isn't that proof that it is all right to borrow from the rock music of our day?" This question comes up so often that it is appropriate to study exactly where Luther stood on this topic. This study should serve to amplify the principles we have been teaching in this.. Read More
Did the Wesleys Use Tavern Music?
     The following is from the United Methodist News Service, September 30, 2002. It was written by Dean McIntyre, director of worship resources at the United Methodist Board of Discipleship. We are picking this up from Foundation magazine, November-December 2002. While we certainly do not support the United Methodist Church, the following is an accurate and important debunking of a popular myth and we are thankful to Mr. McIntyre for taking this stand:
    
Did the Wesleys really use drinking song tunes for their hymns? This drinking tune myth pervades our denomination and has attained the status of truth in many people’s minds, including pastors, musicians, professors, writers, students, and our general laity.
    Of particular importance is the distinction between the use of secular music as hymn tunes--a practice that the Wesleys did occasionally use--and the use of drinking tunes or saloon songs as hymn tunes--a practice that they did not

BONO LOVES “THE MESSAGE” (Friday Church News Notes, January 3, 2020, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - In an interview with Jenna Bush Hager (President George W. Bush’s daughter) on the Today Show, rock star Bono of the band U2, said that his favorite Bible version, and the one he reads to his children, is Eugene Peterson’s The Message. He also said that his children read “mostly mainstream books,” including Harry Potter. He recommended LifeLines by Martin Wroe and Malcolm Doney, explaining, “It’s a book about faith but it’s not strict or in any sense sectarian or specific” (“Bono reveals.. Read More
