Part 10 - Personal Eschatology: Heaven, Hell and the Resurrection

June 22, 2015

Are we living in the “End Times”? When is the “Millennium”? What about the “Great Tribulation”? Who or what is the “Antichrist”? Should Christians always support the nation of Israel in order not to be “cursed”? These are questions that many popular authors and teachers have made millions off of attempting to answer through intricate colorful background charts, or fictional novels and video games. But when it comes to what the Bible actually teaches about the “End Times”, too many people rely on a passage here or there paired with some current event headline by a preacher on television, radio, or online. The result is a mass of confusion among Christians (and the wider culture as well!) over these things. Often, sensationalist voices carry the day and people view “the apocalypse” as something that will inevitably involve nuclear war, massive famine, a one-world government, and smooth-talking leaders forcing everyone to get microchips or tattoos on their foreheads and hands! But does the Bible itself actually teach ANY of this? In “Apocalypse Now?? What the Bible says about the End Times”, JM Smith guides students through the entire Bible and traces the overall themes and key points Scripture actually addresses. Offering a candid, yet charitable appraisal of various eschatological views Christians have held throughout history, “Apocalypse Now??” seeks to allow the listener to survey the positions and form their own coherent approach that takes into account the contextual background of the Bible’s end times message.

It is also available in audio CD format for those who prefer a hard copy or would like to give it as a gift to anyone they know who is interested in the subject of “End Times”!
