So, let’s get back into the interview with Albert about the end times and answer the question, “Are we living in the last days?”
End times discussions can be difficult or confusing. Are there principles or approaches that help understand end times scriptures.
Literal meaning first, figurative second, new meaning last List main passages
Let scripture interpret scripture
Prophecy is vague, “this generation…all these things”
We’ve seen the meme going around with the woman looking out her window to see what verse in Revelation we’re living in. Although that’s funny, many are scared because they believe we’re living in the last days. Are we in the last days? and what about end times?
Biblical use of Last days and End times
Do you believe in the rapture? And let’s also talk about the different views of believers, pre trib, mid trib, and post trib.
Yes. Then details
What are the signs of the last days? And what are some prophecies that need to be fulfilled?
Far signs, near signs
Falling away, man of perdition revealed
Let’s talk for a bit about the anti-christ. What does anti-christ actually mean, because in reality, we’ve already seen some anti-christ figures in history. What most Christians refer to as anti-christ actually means a real person in prophecy who will set himself up as the Messiah and deceive the people. This is where we see the mark of the beast, etc.
The book of Revelation is a combination of literary language. It includes history, prophecy, and lots of imagery. If you had to sum up the purpose of the book, what would you say it’s there for?
Apocalypse defined. End times revealed.
4 certainties: God wins, be prepared, spiritual world, purposely vague
Should we fear the end times? What would you say to people who are struggling with having children during our current cultural situations, or those who are afraid of the anti- christ, etc.
Timing is not clear, believers will suffer tribulation, not wrath
For those who want to study more on the end times, the anti-christ, tribulation, rapture, etc .. where do you suggest they begin?
Study for yourself
