The End Times

The End Times

Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
- 1 John 2:18

In the parable of the fig tree, Jesus said, "Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled." For years, many Bible teachers have believed that Jesus was referring to the rebirth of the nation of Israel. Though the recent prediction of Harold Camping that the Judgment Day would come on May 21, 2011 warns us not to set dates.

If the above interpretation is correct, we may be close. I'm not prophesying or setting dates, but the time is getting closer. Jesus said:

And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ [or I have a special anointing]; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. - Luke 21:8

We should not let false prophecy discourage us from watching. With the following studies, I am trying to stress to our generation the urgency of understanding the end days.

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
- 2 Peter 3:3-4
 


A Bible Study Examining the Pre-tribulation Rapture

We are entering a critical time in history. Jesus said:

Take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with [...] cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. - Luke 21:34-35

If the pretribulation rapture is true, then many end time Scriptures do not apply to us. But if the Bible does not teach a pretribulation rapture, then many in the church will be completely unprepared to enter the most important time in modern history. In this study, we will look at the Scriptures used to teach a pretrib rapture. If there were no rapture, are you praying how you might be a light during the Great Tribulation?

The Mark of the Beast

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: - Revelation 13:16

The Mark of the Beast is a popular topic in science fiction. But how much do we know about it in real life? What should we be looking for?

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

Who are the Four Horsemen or the Apocalypse? In this Bible study we will look at the first five seals in Revelation chapter 6 and how they fit into the last 2000 years of history.

End Day False Prophets

This study looks at some failed end-time predictions. We must avoid the false prophets and yet obey Jesus' command to watch.

The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11

And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. - Revelation 11:3

Who are these Two Witnesses, and what is their ministry? Where are they mentioned in other passages of Scripture? Will we recognize them when they arrive?

On the Wings of an Eagle

Eagle soaring

And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. - Revelation 12:14

This Bible study looks at God's miraculous protection of His chosen in Israel during the Great Tribulation.

The Winepress of God's Wrath

And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. - Revelation 14:19

This is a study of the winepress mentioned in Revelation and Zechariah 14:3-5. At the Lord's second coming, an event will occur, similar to when Moses led the children of Israel through the Red Sea. Let's look at the clues God has given us for the end of the age.

A Moral Look at the Arab-Israel Conflict

This page compares Jewish and Muslim Terrorism and both Israel and Palestine's response to the attacks on the World Trade Center as well as Israel's and Islam's claim to Palestine.

For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. - Isaiah 60:2
