For those unfamiliar, “End Times” is Christian-ese for all topics related to what’s going to happen at the end of the world. Usually the focus is on things called the tribulation, the rapture, and the “millennial reign”. I plan to get back on here and write quite a bit on this topic, but for now I’d like to simply point to another resource…
Dr. Kent Hovind
has added end times theology to his ministry. It now encompasses creation,
the flood, and end-times.
I highly recommend getting his book, which is available as a digital download (PDF), and a physical copy. They can both be purchased.
Where my understanding of the Bible differs from many other Christians is I see the Bible teach what’s called a “post-tribulation rapture”. It’s pretty clear to me from Matthew 24:29-31, and even more clear if you read all of Matthew 24. Here’s the excerpt from vs 29-31:
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
You can see the order of operations is
1) Tribulation (vs 29)
2) Seeing Jesus in coming in the clouds (vs 30)
3) The Rapture occurs (vs 31)
…but for now, please enjoy Kent Hovind’s “What On Earth” series!
This is the right frame. I'm not sure what I'll do with it right now, but it seems like it could come in handy for something.
