The Scriptures

The Institute for Scripture Research (ISR) is an organization registered in South Africa for the purpose of spreading the truth of the Scriptures to the world through its various publications. Our vision is to faithfully proclaim YHWH and his word throughout the world by means of all our publications.

Our primary means though is through the translating, printing and publishing of a literal translation of “The Scriptures” that is as accurate as we can make it.

We have restored the name of the Father and his Messiah while also preserving the Hebraic mind-set of the original writers, to the best of our ability. In so doing we hope that it will shed further light on the understanding of the message of the Scriptures, thereby spiritually enriching the lives of its readers. Such a translation would be subject to on-going revision, as the ISR continues its quest to make it more and more accurate.

To further this end we also offer the public other publications that we believe may be excellent tools in the hands of those who seek for truth.

 

From Daniel to Doomsday: The Countdown Has Begun

By John Hagee

John Hagee says, “The world as we know it will end, neither with a bang nor a whimper, but in stages clearly set forth in God’s Word.”

His latest and most provocative book takes a cue from a cultural icon, the ticking clock. Hagee presents a prophetic “Doomsday Clock” and counts down the minutes-through prophetic events-which must occur before that fateful moment when every unredeemed individual must face God on Judgment Day.

Citing examples from national and international media and using Scripture to confirm his insights, he presents a compelling argument to prove that time is indeed running out.

Four Blood Moons: Something Is About to Change

By John Hagee

“…There will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars…Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” Luke 21:25a, 28

It is rare that Scripture, science, and history align with each other, yet the last three series of Four Blood Moons have done exactly that. Are these the “signs” that God refers to in His Word? If they are, what do they mean? What is their prophetic significance?

In this riveting book, New York Times best-selling author, Pastor John Hagee, explores the supernatural connection of certain celestial events to biblical prophecy—and to the future of God’s chosen people and to the nations of the world.

Just as in biblical times, God is controlling the sun, the moon, and the stars to send our generation a signal that something big is about to happen. The question is: Are we watching and listening to His message?

Is Dispensationalism Guilty of Replacement Theology?

Dispensationalists often denounce historic Christianity’s teaching that the Church is the continuation of Israel. They write it off as anti-Semitic “replacement theology.”

Dispensationalism contends that the Church and Israel are distinct bodies that God will keep separate even into eternity. They hold that the Church is the Church and Israel is Israel and never the twain shall meet.

To confuse the two, they argue, is to replace a local, ethnically-distinct people (Israel) with a universal, ethnically-diverse people (the Church). They reject any merging of Israel and the Church as replacement theology calling it anti-biblical and immoral.

In doing this they themselves impose a separation. They effectively separate their own peculiar and innovate theology from the orthodox theology of the historic Christian Church.

From the teaching of the Apostles, through that of the Ante-Nicene, Nicene, Post-Nicene, and up through the Reformers and beyond, the historic Church has strongly held to the view that the Church is the continuation of Israel.

It was only in the early part of the nineteenth century with the arising of dispensationalism that this view was rejected.

In this presentation we will focus our attention on dispensationalism’s loud complaint. We will engage the question of Israel’s role in Scripture and her relationship to the Church of Jesus Christ in God’s plan.

And we will particularly focus on the dispensationalism’s charge that historic Christian Church has engaged in heresy in this regard.

Ironically, we will show that the label “replacement theology” better describes dispensationalism!

We will show that they have replaced the biblical and historical doctrine of the Church and Israel with a peculiar man-made one.

Stop Trusting Man's Word

So many in the church today are falling victim to the Genesis 3 attack, “Did God really say…?”

They question His Word and instead place their trust in the fallible words and “knowledge” of man.

In this DVD, Ken Ham challenges Christians to hold a high view of Scripture—all of Scripture.

He examines Genesis 1:2–5 and other Bible passages to gain a firm grasp on the Bible’s authority and authenticity.

The undermining of God’s Word will have lasting effects on future generations; we must repent of our desire to gain the praise of man rather than the “well done” of a holy God.

TITHING: IS IT FOR TODAY?

Many ministers today will tell you that you are sinning by not obeying in giving tithes to the church.

But no one can tithe as instructed in the scriptures. It’s literally impossible.

This DVD will go over the four basic types of tithes as mentioned in the scriptures.

However, it must be understood that all tithes were intended for either the Priests, Levites or simply brought to the temple for other purposes.

Since there is no Priests, Levites or temple in existence today, biblically speaking, you can’t tithe.

The Sabbath Day

We’ve all been told that the Sabbath is now on Sunday.

But how many of us have truly tested that?

Have we truly examined the basis of this belief? Or have we just blindly accepted what we have been taught over the years based on the interpretations of man’s views of the scriptures that have been passed down through the generations?

We present this examination of the scriptures regarding the one day that was given as a sign and covenant for those who choose to follow our Heavenly Father.

The Church: His Model

Few know that the Bible details the intended structure for the Body of the Messiah…even fewer might realize that our Lord really cares how we choose to organize ourselves.

Certainly a sensitive topic, this presents a conclusion far different than the norm.

We pray that this teaching offers much to consider and only brings us closer to our Father.
