I am listening through Greg Bahnsen’s study on Revelation and will periodically post some thoughts. The series is excellent. He gave me some insight on Revelation 1:7 which confirmed my thesis I have been working on for the past two years, turning it around in my head. That was awesome because it is always great to get confirmation on things one has thought of but has not heard anyone else teach on up to that point. First, it shows the common Spirit uniting us, but second, and note this carefully….
THEOLOGICAL NOVELTY IS NOT A GOOD THING
Usually, not always, especially in an atmosphere of free study and no government coercion of theology or other unnatural influences, if one is the only one or part of a radical fringe (cough - hyperpreterism) there is a very good chance one has over-estimated one’s abilities. Bahsen referred to an early respected commentator that had a similar conclusion, so I am trying to obtain that work, well a translation of that work since it is in German.
