Things have changed in our Christian and church environment as well as the church at large, and the prime work of Christian apologetics and evidences now centers around the getting real and relevant on Revelation. Also hopefully the rescue, especially in the SBC, of some pastors, members, and churches, that are victims of the Scofield theology, notes, and Bible heresies on rapture, millennium, and dispensationalism, words not even found once in the literal Bible. So evidences and apologetics is contending for the faith once for all delivered in the Bible, not like the falsely called conservative resurgence that falls short of the first century delivery of the Bible by the Apostles and Holy Spirit, instead foolishly selling their people on a definition of conservative established in 1909 with the Scofield Reference Bible heresy and in 1910 with The Fundamentals. Not to be confused with the fundamentals of the Bible or even the Fundamentals of the Faith of Herschel Hobbs.
The in-mass wholesale departure from the conservative faith once for all delivered (Jude 3) to FICTION with the showing of the Left Behind movies in churches, which is nothing but fiction based on fiction. How far we have departed from faith in favor of this fiction is seen by the reality that the present President of the SBC states that his hero is the actor in the Left Behind Series.
Get Real and Relevant on the Pale Horse and those that have the seal of approval on their foreheads of God the Heavenly Father.
Revelation 22:3–4 (ESV)
3 No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. 4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.
There are some indications with the pandemic such as never seen in the world of the coronavirus that we are now in the final tribulation, and also from Revelation we are reminded that before the 7 angels were released to bring such tribulation on the world, an angel was instructed to seal such believers on their foreheads for protection. Seal on their foreheads is worthy of a separate study in the book of Revelation, but one such Scripture from Revelation 9:3-6, deep into tribulation reads:
Then from the smoke came locusts on the earth, and they were given power like the power of scorpions of the earth.
They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any green plant or any tree, but only those people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. They were allowed to torment them for five months, but not to kill them, and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings someone. And in those days people will seek death and will not find it. They will long to die, but death will flee from them.”
However, the Scripture that gives believers in Christ the comfort of sealed for protection with the seal of God on their foreheads is in Revelation 7:1-3 as quoted below:
“And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
This modern message of Christian apologetics and evidences focuses a lot of those of Jude that are currently singed, in Jude 22,23:
20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
22 And on some have compassion, [j]making a distinction; 23 but others save [k]with fear, pulling them out of the [l]fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.
