Bible Teaching – Eschatology (End Times)

Ready or Not… (Luke 12:35-40)

Jesus is coming back…are you ready? Some good basic teaching on the return of Christ and what it means practically for our lives, but also provides a simple and uniquely helpful paradigm for the often confusing doctrine of eschatology in the Bible. (See especially the 36 minute mark onward for a discussion of problems with both dispensational premillennialism and postmillennialism.)
All You Really Need to Know About Revelation

Dave Swavely teaching on Revelation 1:1-3 and what the book is all about, including what part of history it’s predicting and the all-important nature of the visions, with an emphasis on the book’s practical value.

If you’d like to see how this perspective on the book helps us to understand its content, check out the next video about one of the key passages later in Revelation (8:1-5).
Revenge of the Savior (Revelation 8:1-5)

Most people don’t realize it, but did you know that Jesus takes revenge on his enemies? We as humans should not do that, but one reason we are given is that”Vengeance is mine, says the Lord.” This passage is about Jesus taking revenge on those who crucified him and persecuted his people–therefore, contrary to what many people think, much of the book of Revelation is not about events that will occur in our future, but amazingly detailed prophecies that have already occurred in history, just like God said they would! So we can know that God’s warnings and promises to us will also surely come true.
Judgment on the Land (Revelation 8:6-13)

When we see natural disasters on the news, or experience some form of them in our own lives, what should we think about them? Are such things outside God’s control or does he have a purpose in allowing them?

This teaching is also an example of how to understand key passages in the book of Revelation from the perspective that much of the book is describing events that have already occurred in world history, like the destruction of Jerusalem (and Temple worship) and the fall of Rome.
