We’re all born with a depraved heart, which can deteriorate towards evil... if not for the restraining grace of God.
Earthquakes. Famine. Wars. Lawlessness. Most Christians have some idea of the signs that occur during the time the Bible calls "the last days." Well guess what—we're living in them now! Just about every generation since the New Testament was written has thought the same. Some Christians are fascinated by the mysteries and symbols found in Revelation and love to unravel their secrets. Others feel that Revelation wasn't written for that purpose, so we're best off avoiding it altogether, lest we get sidetracked from our main calling.
What's the proper approach? What should we know about the end times, and what, if anything, should we do to live out our faith in the midst of these turbulent times? We hope these resources will increase your understanding of this important topic and will help you separate the solid truths of the Bible from the flimsy fantasies of the latest "end times" movie.
When God created the universe He created time as part of His perfect plan. And one day it will come to and end.
What the great earthquake is to the Californian the great Tribulation is to the whole world. You will not escape it.
Do you take time to reflect on the wonder of heaven? Do you think about eternity with God and the complete and total banishment of death and sin? Do thoughts of heaven influence your earthly days?
Death is inevitable, and once you’re in its grip there is no escape. he good news is those in Christ don’t need to fear death because it ushers us into the presence of God.
The return of Jesus Christ is met with mixed emotions. For those who are ready there is a sense of comfort and anticipation. But for those who are not there is a mixture of confusion, intimidation, and—for a few—even fear.
Don’t neglect the here and now while waiting for the hereafter. Today is part of eternity. And it matters how we live.
Being left behind is a bad feeling. No one likes being out in the cold. But there will come a day when many people will know that awful feeling. It’s the day of the Second Coming when those without Christ will be left behind. This is a lighthearted look at Christ's return.
Tragic situations are transformed when God steps in. And He takes the most (seemingly) insignificant things to transform. Underdogs become overcomers, weaknesses turn into strengths, and obstacles are nothing but opportunities that launch significant events.
Nothing on this earth is anything even like heaven. Nothing. We could spend the next decade only thinking about heaven and still come up so short we’d have wasted our time. Because when you move from the realm of the seen to the unseen it becomes incomprehensible.
