  • Christian Eschatology Vs Secular Futurology

    Exploring comparisons and contrasts between secular futurology and Christian eschatology and secular futurology raises questions about every organization’s mission and its reason for being. Braaten (1979) says “The future in secular futurology is reached by a process of the world’s becoming. The future in Christian eschatology arrives by the coming of God’s kingdom.” For years, there have been profound dynamisms in this crossroads between the Christian eschatology and secular futurology. Secular futurology represents an interdisciplinary field, which studies only yesterday's and today's changes, to accumulate and analyze both nonprofessional and professional strategies with respect to tomorrow’s future. Analysis includes sources, patterns,…

  • The Pros And Cons Of Realized Eschatology

    With all the various forms and flavors of false doctrine that exist in our current world, it is important to maintain familiarity with these different erroneous teachings. One teaching that has plagued the Lord’s church as of late is that of “Realized Eschatology”. This radical approach to interpreting Biblical prophecy has caused a number of Christians to stray from the faith. Members of the church should educate themselves in error like this so as to resist falling prey to it and be able…

  • John Calvin's Understanding Of Eschatology Analysis

    “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…

  • Hell In The Book Of Revelation

    For as long as there has even been a theological understanding of the existence of God, heaven and the story of humankind’s beginnings, there has been a conversation about hell. The presence of hell hearkens back to the Old Testament and the concept grows throughout the Bible until the great unveiling of its physical manifestation in the book of Revelation. It is this final understanding of what hell will be that sticks in the minds of many Christians and theologians. In fact, what has been…

  • Symbolism In Revelation

    describes destroying the beast as a future act. Additionally, Revelation also appears to mention a more historic reading of the text. One example is the symbolism of the “women sitting on a scarlet beast” (17:3). An angel tells John that “the woman… is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth,” which seems to refer to Rome during the first century because it consisted of “peoples and multitudes and nations and languages” (17:18,15). This woman was “drunk with the blood of the…

  • Views Of Heaven And Hell According To Christian Theology

    Views on Heaven and Hell According to Christian theology, multiple views of heaven and hell have been explored. Some suggest a metaphorical approach, as others present a more literal perspective of what the Bible says. It is very clear throughout Scripture that there are exclusively two destinations dependent on our faith in God. Knowledge regarding what comes after our earthly lives is essential, so we will be more capable to share with others. God has a well thought out plan for our eternity…

  • John Book Of Revelation

    John writes the book of Revelation to testify “to everything he saw” of the testimony given to him by Jesus Christ. He recorded his vision from Christ “for the benefit of…Christians throughout history”. He wrote to the seven churches in the provinces of Asia to urge his readers to “be ready at all times for the Last Judgment and the establishment of God’s kingdom.” While Revelation is not, as some assume, a secret code to unlock the future, it is a great resource to Christians so that they…

  • Analysis Of Antichrist By Daniel

    speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time. 26But the court will sit for judgment, and his dominion will be taken away, annihilated and destroyed forever. 27Then the sovereignty, the dominion and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the saints of the Highest One; His kingdom will be…

  • Millennialism In Israel Analysis

    In that view, the church replaces — or as they would say — “fulfills” — Israel. There is no further national program for Israel nor is there a future earthly kingdom lasting for 1000 years with Christ ruling from Jerusalem. This millennial (which means 1000 years) view is called Amillennialism (meaning: no literal millennium). I reject that view in favor of what’s called Premillennialism which basically says that Christ will return before the millennium to set up His 1000-year kingdom on earth.…

  • Daniel Tribulation Period

    Daniel’s 70 weeks lay out God’s plan for the nation, Israel (see Daniel 9:24-27). According to most scholars within both the Dispensational and Covenantal camps, the Messiah (Jesus) is cut off (crucified) after the 7 and 62 (7+62=69) weeks. These are weeks of years, not days. Dispensationalists teach a parenthesis (2000-year gap) between the 69th and 70th week, which becomes the church age of grace, essentially starting from Christ’s resurrection and extending all the way until the rapture of…
