Chuck Missler, founder of Koinonioa House, prolific author and encourager for those who study the Bible, has died at the age of 83. Koinonioa House, a publisher and conference organizer, announced his death Tuesday.
‚ÄúTruly the passion of his life was encouraging of others to commit to the serious study of the Bible as the inerrant Word of God,‚ÄĚ the organization said of its founder.
He started out with an informal affiliation with Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa, California, and worked more than 40 years to share his teachings on the integration of Scripture with science, history and prophecy.
He occasionally drew attention for some novel concepts about the Bible, such as the 2013 event where he concluded the Bible is not from our ‚Äútime domain.‚ÄĚ...

I have on more than one occasion heard Bible teacher Chuck Missler say that there is only one piece of real estate on planet earth where God has specifically said that it belongs to a specific people and that is Israel. Yet, that specified land is the most contested on the entire planet. This is true because God has spoken specifically on the matter. The fact that God‚Äôs clear Word is contested by so many means that Satan is behind such a consensus....

he always seemed well beyond the affluent fiction novel writers...
...wanting to connect "the bible" (I say loosely) with not only current events but the most recent secret knowledge of the powers that be.... was , it seemed, a constant source of twisted propoganda, like a natural river that runs under the church property.
the gullible in heart and mind that do not understand that technology is always well beyond what the public knows, or cares to know, its easy for one connected to the inside to give little glimpses in and excite the flesh.
..and make "bible teaching" "exciting"
these are the friends among us who should have been called out for going astray, but these things are done quietly in people's homes where their hearts and minds are changed away from the biblical text.
First I can recommend 9 sermons here on SA by John MacArthur on discernment: [URL=http://tinysa.com/314058]]]http://tinysa.com/314058 (Principles of Discernment)[/URL]
For you who like to read,
John MacArthur wrote: First Thessalonians 5:21-22 teaches that it is the responsibility of every Christian to be discerning: "But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil." The apostle John issues a similar warning when he says, "Do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world" (1 John 4:1). According to the New Testament, discernment is not optional for the believer-it is required....
... Discernment -- the ability to think biblically about all areas of life -- is indispensable to an uncompromising life. It is incumbent upon the Christian to seize upon the discernment that God has provided for in His precious truth! Without it, Christians are at risk of being "tossed here and there by waves, and carried about by every wind of doctrine" (Ephesians 4:14).

I'm sorry to see that Chuck Missler apparently a dispensationalist, which he would be correct on, was certainly incorrect on other biblical matters
Wikipedia wrote: A Los Angeles Times article reported that Missler and co-author Hal Lindsey had plagiarized a portion of Miami University Professor Edwin Yamauchi's 1982 book Foes From the Northern Frontier in their own 1992 book The Magog Factor. After the plagiarism was acknowledged, book shipments to bookstores were discontinued and all of the authors' proceeds donated to a ministry....
Combining his experience with technology and his fascination with Bible prophesy, Missler was also outspoken in predicting that the "Year Two Thousand Bug" (a.k.a. "Y2K bug") would become key to the beginning of the apocalypse beginning on January 1, 2000....
