POST-MODERN PROPHECY PARADIGM:
NEPHILIM, GIANTS, ALIENS & FALLEN ANGELS in Modern American Christianity
Sometimes, one reads a series of articles that leave one with the sense that something about them is not quite right–though it’s hard to pin down exactly what that might be.
Thus it has been with the raft of “super soldier,” Nephilim and alien stories that have been promoted by various Christian end times authors. This storyline has provided a brisk business for those involved in the telling of these stories. But, again, something just didn’t quite seem to add up.
And make no mistake about it: the stories of Nephilim, giants, aliens and fallen angels are very entertaining. No wonder they’re popular. They would make great movie scripts.
But do they make good, sound Bible teaching?
The articles whose links appear in this post go a long way toward putting a finger on what it is about those fantastic end times stories which is not quite right. I’m not prepared to state that everything the PPP (Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm) teachers are saying is wrong. But some of it clearly is not right.
One evidence has been their heavy reliance on extra-Biblical/mystical/occult sources to flesh out their teachings. That should make any Christian uncomfortable.
Another is the sensational exposure of “cover-ups”–mostly involving the government. Speculation and “what if’s” also play a very large part, physical evidence and Biblical exegesis not so much, in their building of an end times eschatology about which the Bible is mostly silent.
ALSO at END TIMES PROPHECY REPORT:
Knowing the “other side’s” plans isn’t wrong (We’re commanded to “be wise as serpents.”). But a strong dependance on extra-Biblical sources in order to make your case is not very encouraging. Another thing which is unsettling: one may educate readers about the meanings of occult symbols without plastering them on one’s own materials: seems occult or paranormal imagery dominates much of the PPP merchandise.
As stated, the listed articles are very informative. They contain much Biblical information that the PPP teachers are simply leaving out or de-emphasizing.
The following are provided as resources in order for readers to make more informed choices about the subject matter. More links may be added to this list as they become available.
