An end and a beginning

Revelation Revisited completeWe have come to the end of the Revelation Revisited series which started in April 2015 and consisted of over 60 articles. For those of you who journeyed with me through this wonderful last book of the Bible – thank you. I do hope this series has been of benefit to you.

I will be videoing a summary of the last half of the book, as I did for the first half, but in the meanwhile HERE is a printable document containing all the posts in the series for you to read (offline if you prefer) at your leisure.

Do you have any questions on the topic of Revelation?  If you do, please insert your question into the comment section (under this post) and I will do my best to answer it.

In the near future, I will be starting a series called Truth Talks, which are short essays on topics of interest. These posts will be  linked to audio interviews on the same topic which will in future become podcasts but are currently downloadable in the same way as podcasts. The articles will range over categories like Christian Living, the church, the Bible, Science and Faith, The Lord Jesus, The Holy Spirit, and Doctrinal aberrations. Here are just some of the topics you can expect:Got Questions?

  • Suicide
  • Divorce and remarriage
  • Homosexuality and Gay marriage
  • Women preachers
  • Biblical inerrancy
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Word of Faith teachings
  • Roman Catholicism
  • Islam
  • Suffering and evil

I would love your feedback on these topics, so If you have any specific topics that you think would interest many then please would you comment on this post, describe what you have in mind, and I will give consideration to writing about it.

In any event, if you have any questions please just ask.

  1. Hi Chris,
    A topic that is worth discussing is evolution vs creation. I am concerned (and quite disgusted) that far too many Christians, including whole denominations, have plumped for “theistic” evolution, thereby ignoring the words of both Moses and Jesus. I consider that the view that evolution is “proven” has deceived Christians. Often they are ill equipped through ignorance to defend the biblical worldview. There are good creationist resources such as at, but most Christians are not aware of them. So if you could add this topic to your list, I think the faith of many could be strengthened.

  2. Thank you for your series on Revelation. I enjoyed it very much and looking forward to you new topics. Yes, I have a few questions and would love it if you could discuss it sometime.

    1. Why don’t miracles happen anymore? John 14:12 and John 5:2 I know a few lame people that has been prayed for. Nothing happened.
    2. When reading the Old Testament, angels appear frequently to people. It almost was normal. Why don’t they appear anymore? I once watch “It is Supernatural” and there was also a guy that sees angels everyday; like it is normal. I don’t know of anybody seeing these angelic beings.
    3. Can you do an article about hearing the voice of God? How does God speak today? In the Old Testament, people literally heard His voice. What about today? I talked to a few people asking them how did they heard His voice and some say they literally heard Him speaking to them like a real voice. Is it normal? John 10:27

    1. Thanks for your comments Aurelia. I have put ‘hearing the voice of God’ onto the list of topics.
      Regarding miracles – I believe that they do still happen but perhaps we expect them in all the wrong places. At the age of 10 months, my life was saved by a miraculous divine intervention. On a less dramatic scale, a man came to me for prayer after a recent church service and reminded me that I had ministered to him a year ago when he had to go into hospital for a procedure. He then said “But then you started to speak about something torn in my body that God would heal. I had a hernia at the time that I had not spoken to anyone about but as you spoke and laid hands on me I felt a warmth flood that area of my body and the hernia was instantly healed”. Was that not a miracle?
      I do believe that God still sends angels to interact with people as and when He sees fit. This doesn’t happen that often either now on in biblical times. If you consider how many thousands of years the OT covers then you can appreciate how seldom angels did appear to people.

About Me

My name is Christopher Peppler and I was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1947. While working in the financial sector I achieved a number of business qualifications from the Institute of Bankers, Damelin Management School, and The University of the Witwatersrand Business School. After over 20 years as a banker, I followed God’s calling and joined the ministry full time. After becoming a pastor of what is now a quite considerable church, I  earned an undergraduate theological qualification from the Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa and post-graduate degrees from two United States institutions. I was also awarded the Doctor of Theology in Systematic Theology from the University of Zululand in 2000.

Four years before that I established the South African Theological Seminary (SATS), which today is represented in over 70 countries and has more than 2 500 active students enrolled with it. I presently play an role supervising Masters and Doctoral students.

I am a passionate champion of the Christocentric or Christ-centred Principle, an approach to biblical interpretation and theological construction that emphasises the centrality of Jesus

I have been happily married to Patricia since the age of 20, have two children, Lance and Karen, a daughter-in-law Tracey, and granddaughters Jessica and Kirsten. I have now retired from both church and seminary leadership and devote my time to writing, discipling, and the classical guitar.
