Coffee Table Extraordinaire!

The TouchTable looks like a giant iPhone that marries satellite imagery with a plethora of data sources. TouchTable, Inc., the creators of this amazing device, have developed applications for intelligence gathering and law enforcement, but the sky’s the limit for the consumer as well. So if you have $60k sitting around the house, looks like this one’s got your name on it. 🙂  These are amazing times!

    Jeff, you might be able to trade your book inventory straight up. 🙂 BTW, Father's Day is coming up…maybe a surprise is waiting for you.

    Pretty darn utilitarian, eh? That air traffic application was a might scary, though. If Touchtable Inc. gets a bulk order from Al K. Ida, we might have reason for concern.

    How cool was that, that they were able to do a time lapse on crime? Truly amazing stuff!

    I am reading your blog for the first time. I am not as educated in the Bible as you are. I find what I have read so far to be credible, reasonable.

    I apologize for this next request, not having had the time to research all of your writings. I have read your insights on the Olivet Discourse,and found them very helpful.

    Could you point me to one of your articles that describe your views on the second coming of Jesus. Is it a literal, come to earth, and reign the nations view? Or is it something else you have discovered through your studies?

    I am sincere in my request, and have an open mind.

    Thanks for your comments. Don't let the plethora of articles lead you to believe that I'm a Bible scholar. I'm probably no different than you.

    About 6 years ago, while in the midst of a prolonged spiritual depression, I began to take my Berean call seriously. I had always been uncomfortable with the modern view of Bible prophecy but had no alternative. So with each passing year I became more and more agnostic and cynical. It seemed, based upon the plethora of imminent "time statements" regarding the return of Christ (the parousia), that God was aloof and just plain cruel.

    Why would Jesus promise to return before His disciples finished going through the cities of Israel, while some of His extended followers were still alive and all within a generation (Matthew 10:23; 16:27-28; 24:34), if He never had even the remotest intention of staying true to his word?

    I had never heard more excuses in my life as to the reasons the above verses supposedly didn't mean what they plainly stated. And not only these, but as I read through the epistles, the imminent language grew ever more intense.

    James wrote, "Be patient, for the coming of the Lord is at hand…and the judge is standing at the door"; Peter, writing in the mid 60's AD penned, "The end of all things is near"; and John warned, "Children, it is the last hour."

    Anon, I had always been told that, since God was eternal, these many statements were merely a reflection of God's reality. So, "at hand", "near" and "last hour" could literally mean thousands of years. But that never made the least bit of sense considering the audience to whom these things were written. Why would a faithful God mislead His heavily persecuted first century followers?

    I wondered why an OT prophet like Daniel was inspired to use a phrase like "many days yet to come" referring to prophesies hundreds of years future, while John’s Revalatory vision was said that it "must soon take place" yet was still not fulfilled 2,000 years later (or so I had been repeatedly told)? Why was Daniel told to seal up the vision that spoke of events less than 600 years future, yet John was told not to seal up the vision that were 2,000 year’s future and counting? Something was definitely amiss but I didn’t even know where to begin to ferret out the confusion.

    There appeared to be so many holes in the logic behind the modern day eschatological presuppositions. So I realized that either the Bible was errant or something was drastically wrong with the prevailing views.

    At any rate, let me alert you to two pages on my website. One contains literally hundreds of articles dealing with every eschatological question imaginable, while the other is home of hundreds of sermons in audio format.

    Audio Page
    End Times Page

    My suggestion, if you want to process as much information as possible with a limited time budget, is to go to the audio page and listen to the series, "Last days". Pastor Dan Norcini only intended to preach a sermon or two on the subject, but 18 sermons later he was still rolling along. This is the most comprehensive handling of the fulfilled eschatological perspective. What makes the series even more unique is that the pastor's views were refined and to a degree altered as he embarked on his mission to help his congregation understand the timing of the "last days". If you'd like to put the mp3's on your iPod, just right click on the title and then click "save as". That should download the sermon to your computer.

    Anon, as you will find, there are tons of sermons and lectures on that page. Also, I would recommend anything by David Curtis. He’s a close friend and is as astute as anyone I know regarding all thing’s Biblical. If you have a specific interest in the Olivet Discourse", his 10 sermons on the Olivet from Mark 13 are outstanding. I’ve also included the pdf's of each sermon so you can follow along with your Bible open.

    My exhortation is for you not to take anything I write or anything you hear from Dan Norcini or David Curtis as Gospel, until you have studied these things for yourself.

    Let me close with this offer. If you have any additional questions, feel free to email me @ I spend about an hour per day answering emails so please be patient if I don't respond within the hour. LoL If I can be of any help pointing you in the right direction, don't hesitate to ask.

    One more recommendation. Until you gain a solid footing, I would not attempt to share these things with friends or family. Very few people will allow the Bible to override things they’ve been told and you may be treated rather harshly if you challenge their long-held beliefs. However, if you do find yourself engaging people on this subject, just remember that humility is the best teacher. Don't be overly dogmatic. And don’t forget that any time one begins to alter their paradigm, growing pains are a natural byproduct. For every question answered, three more will pop-up. 🙂
