Please use discernment. This guy has some interesting insights, but some of what he says is questionable. For example, he believes in the so-called Revelation 12 sign (which both William Tapley and Scott Clarke claim to have "discovered"). Whether it's legit is debatable, but he also says it hasn't appeared for 7,000 years. According to the Bible, the universe is only about 6,000 years old!

OK, this guy is starting to teach things that are coming out of his own imagination. Admittedly, some of his insights are interesting, but others are off the wall. I listen to him when I can, and a big red flag was when he said that he doesn't listen to other teachers, he just relies on what the Holy Spirit teaches him personally. Well, as Proverbs 27 says, "Iron sharpens iron." We're to learn from each other, and when believers are involved in each others lives, mutual edification occurs. As for "the Holy Spirit" teaching him, yes, He does enlighten belivers as to the meaning of Scripture, but Mr. Correll is saying things that are out of the realm of orthodoxy and do not agree at all with any sound prophecy scholar.
Furthermore, 2 Peter 1:20 tells us that no prophecy is of any private interpretation. Even in Peter’s day enemies of Jesus twisted Old Testament prophecies, giving them personal and bizarre meanings. When Peter says that prophecy is not of any private interpretation, its meaning is evident and can be confirmed by others. If indeed it's the Holy Spirit giving Mr. Correll new insights, I believe He would have made the same truths evident to others.
Two things in particular that Mr. Correll said this last week struck me as odd; after 30 years of studying eschatology, including the works of many good, sound Bible scholars and earning a master's degree in Bible studies from seminary, I never heard them interpreted like this before:
1. Those who are alive and in natural bodies after the Millennium will continue to have children, who in turn will have children, etc., and they'll be born without a sin nature.
2. The "seven moutains" are the seven continents.
I ran both these teachings from Mr. Correll past Charlie Garrett, and he said that although Isaiah explicitly states that people will be born during the Millennium, there's not a word in the Bible that suggests that people will continue to reproduce forever, much less be born without a sin nature. He added that this belief sounds almost Mormon.
As for the seven mountains being seven continents, Charie said, "the seven mountains are explicitly stated to be seven hills on which the city sits. Therefore, the Bible has interpreted for us and it has NOTHING to do with seven continents. I would shut him down."
If you've been with us for any length of time, you know that we tolerate no false teachings, wild speculation, or untruths of any kind here; if something is found to be false after it's posted, it's usually deleted or - as I'm doing in this case - the error is pointed out.
Incidentally, another red flag with Mr. Correll is that he's associated with John Hagee, who is involved in both the WOF heresy and the dual covenant heresy, so he's definitely lacking in discernment.
I'm following Charlie Garrett's advice and shutting this guy down. At least for the time being I'll allow his news updates, but there are prophecy teachers who are far better and more knowledgable (and less prideful!) than Mark Correll. I suggest you look to them for studies on Revelation; my two favorites are Charlie Garrett and Andy Woods.
