Holiver’s Blog is an outreach of 2 The Point Ministries

We are leaders, teachers, and members of the one body of Christ, who live in the light of biblical prophecy concerning the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our mission is to sound the Red Alert warning alarm to awaken and prepare the Lord’s people for His coming.

The focus of biblical prophecy concerning the second advent of Christ is never to be on the timing of His coming, It is focused instead on being ready for His coming. According to the word’s of our Lord; no one can know the exact day, or the exact hour in that day that the Lord will come (Matthew 24:36}. And in response to a question on timing asked by His disciples before His return to heaven, Jesus said “it is not for you to know the times or seasons the father has set by His own authority (Acts 1:7).

While it is foolish and misguided to try and guess the timing of our Lord’s coming, based on the events unfolding right before our eyes, in our time, it is equally foolish and misguided not to understand and discern the signs of the times (Luke 12:26), and to be able to see the day as it approaches, and to prepare ourselves for His coming (Hebrews 10:25). The bitter divisions among prophecy teachers has created such confusion that many believers, leaders included, avoid the subject all together. Those leaders then fail to declare the whole counsel of God to the detriment of the people (Acts 20:27).

We have come to understand that timing and readiness are simply two different sides of the same coin. Jesus said “therefore you also be ready, for the son of man is coming at an hour when you think not (Luke 12:40). The Greek word for think (Dokeo) means to think, imagine, or consider, which is a description of being preoccupied with some lesser thing.

False teaching, misguided theology, doctrine and worldly fullness, combined with the ignorance of  biblical prophecy has induced a state of slumber and sleep in the lives of those who who are called to be faithful stewards of the word of life (Philippians 2:12-16).

Tragically this exists in the most decisive era of modern human history: The era of the post 9/11 world. (See Our teaching on 9/11 @www.2thepointministries.com

The eschatological teachings of 2thepointministries is based on the Pre-millennial system of the prophetic scriptures ( Eschatology is the study of the last  things). We hold to a literal and inerrant bible interpretation, salvation through Christ alone, a soon pre-tribulational rapture of all true believers (the bride of Christ), and the establishment of a thousand year kingdom rule of Christ, the messiah of Israel, on this present earth renovated and restored, which precedes His eternal rule in the new heavens and new earth ( Isaiah 11:1-10; 65:17-25; Revelation 20:1-6; 21:1-5; 1 Corinthians 15:24-26; Daniel 2:44; 7:14;, 27; 2 Peter 1:11; Psalm 110:1; Matthew 22:44; 2 Peter 3:13).

important note: While we hold to the Pre-tribulationa rapture position, we acknowledge the age long debate between prophecy scholars. So we humbly submit ourselves as fallible men, and open ourselves up to the possibility of being in error in our view. We take the position that even if we are in error, if we are living lives of holiness, godliness, and self-sacrifice, watching for Christ’s return, we will be prepared even if our view is wrong. Selah!!!!
