The Middle East: God's Peace Plan

The Israel-Palestinian Problem: A Biblical Solution by Teddy L. Desta (2003)   The problem in the Middle East, particularly the relationship between Israel and Palestinians, can find a solution only when any man-made peace plan follows the peace plan outlines provided in the Bible. The following is what we find in the Bible about the Israel-Palestinian problem and its solution. Since the Bible's speaks about the broader Israel-Arab relationship as well, what is presented

Daniel 7: A New Perspective (Part X)

Daniel 7: A New Perspective (Part X)     by   TLD       Speaking of Time   God has indicated that the tribulation of the saints lasts for a time, times, and half time, or for 42 months (Dan. 7:25). If we take this time frame literally, then the whole tribulation period lasts only three and half years. But such an undertaking clashes with reality. If we interpret the vision of Daniel in Ethiopian politics terms, then we have to interpre

Daniel 7: A New Perspective (Part IX)

Daniel 7: A New Perspective (Part IX)   by   TLD       Application of the Visions    If Daniel's visions are political and that they can be understood and interpreted meaningfully in modern-day political terms, then it requires us to look around the world to find a country whose politics answers to the inherent symbolism given in Daniel 7 and in the prophet's other visions. Here I will use Ethiopian politics to exemplify Daniel's visions. I

CORONATION TEMPLE

CORONATION TEMPLE   by   TLD   (2003)     This God has to say to His prophets of the third day.   To Moses, I showed him the likeness of the Tabernacle, and he built it according to what he saw. To David I sent him a diagram, and Solomon used it to build the Temple.  I showed to the prophet Ezekiel My future temple and gave him the details: he wrote it down and left it to posterity.   These days, to you, my sons and daughters, the

Remnant Theology (Part II)

REMNANT THEOLOGY -Part II-   by   TLD   (2003)         III: The End-Time Remnant      3.1 Introduction  At the beginning each Kingdom dispensation the remnant-branch principle operates at a grand scale. For example, when God inaugurated the Dispensation of the Law, we saw how the remnant-branch principle operated in the life of Moses. We noted how God made a new branch out of the shepherd Moses to anoint and commiss

Preparing Joseph

Preparing Joseph by   Teddy L Desta   12/12/08     God aims at two major things in our life: to change our inner nature into Christ-likeness and to prepare us for the higher calling He has purposed for our life.   God is goal-oriented. He does not waste His time and our time when He works in us. From the tiniest encounters and experiences to major life-changing events He weaves it into His grand plan to change us into the image of His son and to

Daniel Chapter 8: The "Little Horn"

Daniel Chapter 8: Clash of Worldviews (-Part II-) by   TLD   (2003)               Profiling the End-time Little Horn       Introduction This section focuses on the discussion of the Antichrist, a system/ person that the Bible predicts will precede the Second Coming of Christ. The section first develops a profile of the anti-Christ based on scattered references found about it/ him in the Bible.

Daniel Chapter 8: A New Approach

Daniel Chapter 8: A New Approach   by   TLD   (2003)      This article presents a new perspective on Daniel Chapter 8. It moves the interpretation away from the historical-literal framework, to focus on the symbolic and the eschatological. I present the interpretation in three sections. The first section discusses the Chapter in its symbolic and eschatological meaning. It interprets the chapter in the form of clash of cultures. The second and third se

The Remnant Principle

Remnant Theology   -Part I-   (2003)     By   TLD     "Behold, the Lord, the GOD of hosts, will lop off the boughs with a terrible crash; Those also who are tall in stature will be cut down And those who are lofty will be abased." (Isaiah 10:33)       Unredeemed humanity - even for that matter carnal Christians - are hardly able to do the will of God by themselves. The root of the problem is the power of sin and thei

The Bride is Coming

Scripture uses different analogies to depict our relationship with God, some of the most familiar ones, include:   Father - Child of God Teacher - Disciple  Commander - soldier Master - Servant Shepherd - Sheep Corner Stone - L

Restoring the Fallen Tabernacle of David

Restoring the Fallen Tabernacle of David   by   TLD   (2002)    "On that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down, and repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins, And rebuild it as in the days of old." (Amos 9:11)    Many interpret this prophecy as God’s promise to restore the ministry of praise and worship among the churches. However, as much as we are commanded to praise and worship God in many places in the Bible,

Daniel Chapter 7: A New Perspective   (Parts VI & VII)   by   TLD   (2003)       The Fourth Beast   The last beast Daniel sees stepping out of the turbulent political waters is a beast, which defies familiar descriptions. It is the fourth beast, which gets extended coverage in this vision, and it is the same beast which gets mentioned extensively in the other chapters in Daniel (i.e., 8, 9 and 11, and 12) and also in end-time p

The Kingdom Of God And The Epochs

The Kingdom of God and the Epochs   By   TLD   (09/22/2017)           The Kingdom of God   God’s kingdom on earth means God realizing His plan, wherein “His will is done on earth as it is done in heaven.” (Matt. 6:10) However, God has chosen to realize His objective of setting up His kingdom on earth through transitional phases.

The Kingdom Of God And Sea Storms

By   TLD   09/09/2017 “There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among the nations, bewildered by the roaring of the sea and the surging of the waves. Men will faint from fear and anxiety over what is coming upon the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” (Luke 21: 25-27)   The coming of the Kingdom of God, the Bible shows will be preceded by

Kingdom Of God As A Rolling Stone

How the Kingdom of God Arrives     By     TLD     02/14/09       The dream in Daniel Chapter 2 is about world politics as seen from God’s perspective. In simple terms, the dream presents a symbolic representation of the  progression of governmental systems and how they will be superseded and destroyed at by the rise of the Kingdom of God at end of the ages. In an outline form, the dream maps governmenta

"You Say; I Say"

"You say, I say"   by   TLD       #1. You say that your God has made your life the darkest, the bleakest. You tell Me how much your friends enjoy the outside, the sun-shine, and the limelight. You complain as if I have singled you out for the life of the shadows, of isolation. You say your life is that endless sorrow and deprivation. You decry what you have lost over the years; you continuously lament what have lost by while I have confined t

Re-litigating Jacob

Re-litigating Jacob   by   Teddy L. Desta       The Jacob Problem One of the main characters of the Old Testament is the patriarch Jacob. Jacob has been a subject for many sermons and teaching books. However, Jacob has been portrayed mostly as a trickster, and even as a scoundrel. His name, Jacob, has been interpreted to support this characterization of a grabber, a born cheater. But how God understands Jacob and his weakness is different.

Daniel Chapter 7: A New Perspective

Daniel Chapter 7: A New Perspective   by   Teddy L. Desta   (1982, 1988, 2003)     Within conservative biblical scholarship circles, there is a core consensus on interpreting Daniel’s Chapter 7. What various scholars and sages wrote over the centuries interpreting the Chapter can be summarized:   First, the churning great sea is the Mediterranean Sea, because all the major classical world empires arose from or operated a
