This is part #1 of our 7 part series on what the Disciples taught about the End-Times. Marquis looks at Jesus' teaching recorded in Matthew chapter 24 and what it tells us about the rise of the Antichrist and the timing of the rapture.
Marquis compares what is written in Mark's Gospel about Jesus' return with other passages of Scripture. This teaching is also found in Matthew chapter 24, and Luke's Gospel. The Apostle Paul also teaches it to the Corinthian church in his letters to them. Altogether the Scriptures paint a consistent picture of the sequence of events destined to take place just prior to the return of Jesus. In our Word of the Week segment we examine 3 major trends in the church toward the Bible.
In the Gospels Jesus refers to this part of the book of Daniel as revealing the key events scheduled to take place just prior to His return to rule and reign the earth. Very specific predictions are given to the prophet Daniel concerning these "latter days". Our Word of the Week is: TIMING.
Details about the rise of the Antichrist are given in this amazing prophecy from the book of Daniel. Chapter 11 represents one of the most comprehensive passages about the wars and activity of this coming world ruler in all of Scripture. Our Word of the Week: Judgement. What is the difference between man's judgement and God's judgement, and how can we avoid judging each other?
The 11th chapter of the book of Daniel gives amazing details about the future career of a coming world ruler commonly referred to as the Antichrist. Marquis share the near/far fulfillment aspect of this prophecy, and how God's plan for mankind is often "pictured" over and over historically only to be ultimately fulfilled in the person and rule of Christ. Our Word of the Week is: PLAN.
