Living without hope is like sailing on the open ocean with no wind. It’s hard to get going with nothing driving us toward our destination.
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.
Most people would say death is the end but Christians have a hope that goes beyond the grave. In this message, Chuck Swindoll offers a glimpse into the future for those who trust in God.
The Bible gives us a preview of future events. It teaches us to be alert because Christ’s return could be tomorrow...it could be today!
Maybe you’ve gone to church all your life but have never come to terms with Christ. Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies.” Do you believe this?
Living in light of Christ’s return changes our perspective. And when we realize we will give an account for every idle word when we stand before Him it also changes our conduct.
We’re all born with a depraved heart, which can deteriorate towards evil...if not for the restraining grace of God.
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.
