Jerusalem Blade

Puritan Board Professor
Updated 8 June 2022: Jerusalem Blade Collected eschatology & Revelation threads and posts

In the absence of the blogs of old here at PB where one could collect links to significant threads and posts, I’m going to post here for reference some previous eschatology threads (I’ve done the same for textual material). I'll give a link to here in my signature. As I’m 80 now, and growing frail, I figured I’d save these for posterity to consider when I’m gone to my Saviour.

End Time, Revelation, Babylon, Pharmakeia etc URLs

These are a collection of such threads and/or posts of mine (at PuritanBoard) to date, as well pharmakeia studies I’ve published or made available online In the PB threads of others I have usually linked to my first post therein, and from there one can then go back to the beginning of the discussion if desired.

As one can see, some of these are earlier explorations on themes in Revelation – works in progress. I continue working on the topic of Babylon, and what the implications of that are for us in the 21st century. I will update this list as needed. Click on Spoiler to read.

“You let the devil in!” – An indictment of the U.S. [May 2022]

Another presentation of the impact recreational sorcery has had upon our culture (in the U.S. and U.K.), and its place in the final period of this age.


Subtitled, Restoring confidence in the applicability of John’s Apocalypse, the final prophecy. This may be my last post in this category, as I’m drawing near the end of my course at age 80 – though I can’t make any promises as regards that!

Amillennialism and the Mark of the Beast [Dec 2021-Jan 2022]

My first post (#43), here. Is Covid-19 vaccination the mark? A Biblical, extended, response.

Amillennialism - A three-question poll (plus a fourth question) [Aug–Sept 2021]

Four posts of mine in this thread, starting at #7 – discussing the radically differing natures of post and a-mil, the rough timing of the end, and can America be in prophecy?

The Salvation of Jews & Armageddon from an Amillennial Perspective [Aug 2021]

How do the Jews fit into the end times, and Zech 14, literal or typical? I post 8 times, starting in #9.

UN climate report a “code red for humanity” [Aug 2021]

Why is our overheating world not getting Christians thinking about the 4th vial or bowl of Rev 16:8, 9 and God’s wrath in a burning heat judgment? Why are we fairly blind to not only that, but other markers of the end – from an Amillennial viewpoint?

Current state of Satan within the amillennial framework- Loosed or Bound? [May 2021]

One post in this thread

Holocausts [April 2021]

Excerpt from my small book, A Poet Arises In Israel, in the larger book (free digital), A Great and Terrible Love (or on Amazon), on the judgment of the Jewish holocaust, the holocaust of divine wrath Jesus suffered, and the eternal holocaust to come on unrepentant sinners, Jew and Gentile. Of eschatological significance!

Theonomy and Drugs [March 2016]
I'm starting this where I first entered the discussion, at post #18 (one can go back to see the start). It's amazing how folks can wax knowledgeable on the topic of psychedelic drugs and yet not know what they are talking about. It would be laughable were it not reflective of such great danger to the saints, for when these things are allowed in the temple of God they are brought into communion with the Spirit of Christ. Imagine, allowing the demonic such access!

Why is scripture silent on... ...drugs? [Nov 2014]

This is an unusual thread (I start posting in #7). Toward the end a gentleman opposes me with a secular – worldly – knowledge of the topic in question used medicinally but ignorant of its spiritual affect in the soul. Because it is effective as an analgesic (which I acknowledge) he says it should be given to Christians to relieve pain, discounting the terrible spiritual danger this involves them in; he thinks worldly counsel trumps spiritual understanding. The admins closed the thread before I could finish responding. Later I was told not to write on this topic anymore as some admins and mods do not agree with my view.

I then had a private discussion with a top admin regarding sorcery, answering his and others’ objections, with him unable to refute my presentation, so I take that as having a green light if I proceed prudently.
