    The time of the end of the age of man spans from the book of Genesis in the Old Testament to the book of Revelation, which is the last book of the New Testament. Most people only consider the books of Daniel and Revelation as apocalyptic discernment to a future period known as the Great Tribulation. To fully understand where we are in the prophetic structure of the time that was allotted to the age of man, you must go back to the very beginning. You must look deep into the Scriptures for interlocking clues. The Bible is sequential, and it is very much a living book. It is timeless! Every word of it hinges on what was spoken previously, and therein lays the great divide between it, and the other holy books. The Bible is a book of proposition. "Come now, and let us reason together…," (Isaiah 1:18 KJV). The Bible invites you to come inside, and its text comes to life, as we ourselves live it out in the transformation of our hearts, and in the renewing of our minds. It has recorded the past and the future, and it also unravels multiple stacked-up patterns that become revelatory clues. Our very first clue to God 's timetable and His future plan for the end of the age of man occurs rather unexpectedly in the very beginning in the book of Genesis. In the book of Genesis, it is easy to overlook God 's initial revelation to Satan, because we get so caught up in looking at the story of creation, and at the fall of man due to sin. However, in Genesis God laid His plan out right…

    As modern society begins to polarize away from traditional Christian views, the fears that Christianity distilled into humanity have begun to take a new form.

    “Kingdom of God”, “the day of the LORD”, “the end of the world”, “the last judgment” and “a new heaven and a new earth.” These words are the image of eschatology, and eschatology is an important subject in the Bible. Even Donald K. McKim says that the theme of the Bible is the kingdom of God (McKim, 167). In the Gospel, Jesus taught about the kingdom of God in his whole life and ministry, and the kingdom of God is represented as “already, but not yet” (McKim, 170). John Calvin, a 16th century…

    “Obsessive apocalypticism ran contrary to her traditions respect for the limits of human knowledge.” This supports the idea of the mystery that many fundamentalists do not wish to address. Similarly, “Historically, the Nazarene church has carefully avoided any official position regarding the ‘Second coming.’” Again, this uses mystery as well as some tongue and cheek humor. (Worthen, 93) One push back, when she writes about all the PhD’s earned by evangelicals in the 1940’s and 50’s from…

During the time of Nichiren, Buddhism had become the official religion of the Japanese state, and as Masaharu Anesaki (1916) explains, “its hierarchies had attained the power and dignity of state authorities, but inner decay was manifesting itself, and the corruption of the clergy was appalling. The central government, firmly established since the seventh century, was disintegrating through the degeneration…

    into the ‘construction’ of nature and the politics of development (Nayar, 241). Eco-criticism focuses on the link between literature and nature. Raymond Williams in his ‘The Country and the City’(1973) elegantly argued how English Literature contributed to specific notions of nature (Nayar, 242). Thus, eco-criticism believes that literary, visual and other representations of nature have very much to do with an age’s views and treatment of nature. Further, it seeks links between literary studies…
