When the Jews regained nationhood in May 1948, the countdown began toward the promised return of the Messiah. In Fifty Signs of the End Times, compelling new information is shared demonstrating that the end-time clock is nearing midnight, including: How the alignment of the nations soon to come against Israel is exactly as prophesied in the Bible. The many ways that God has honored His promise to richly bless Israel in the latter days including the discovery of new energy sources. Recent and detailed information concerning the coming Tribulation Temple. Amazing accounts demonstrating how God is pouring out His Spirit in these latter days. How God has miraculously protected Israel in its recent wars. Revealing how twelve of Christs prophecies in His Olivet Discourse have come true in our time. Dr. David Nichols explains these intriguing signs, and dozens more, in meticulous detail. We are fast approaching Armageddon. However, this need not cause alarm. God has provided an escape. I have well over fifty prophecy volumes in my library and can honestly say that none display more of the detailed and accurate research as seen in this book. Every prophecy student worth his salt needs to read it! ---Dr. H.L.

What Do the Five Points of Calvinism Really Mean? Many have heard of Reformed theology, but may not be certain what it is. Some references to it have been positive, some negative. It appears to be important, and they'd like to know more about it. But they want a full, understandable explanation, not a simplistic one. What Is Reformed Theology? is an accessible introduction to beliefs that have been immensely influential in the evangelical church. In this insightful book, R. C. Sproul walks readers through the foundations of the Reformed doctrine and explains how the Reformed belief is centered on God, based on God's Word, and committed to faith in Jesus Christ. Sproul explains the five points of Reformed theology and makes plain the reality of God's amazing grace.

The underlying premise of the book is a simple one: the global capitalist system is approaching an apocalyptic zero-point. Its four riders of the apocalypse are the ecological crisis, the consequences of the biogenetic revolution, the imbalances within the system itself (problems with intellectual property, the forthcoming struggle for raw materials, food and water), and the explosions of social divisions and exclusions. Society’s first reaction is ideological denial, then explosions of anger at the injustices of the new world order, attempts at bargaining, and when this fails, depression and withdrawal set in. Finally, after passing through this zero-point we no longer perceive it as a threat, but as the chance for a new beginning. or, as Mao Zedong might have put it, “There is great disorder under heaven, the situation is excellent.” Žižek traces out in detail these five stances, makes a plea for a return to the Marxian critique of political economy, and sniffs out the first signs of a budding communist culture in all its diverse forms—in utopias that range from Kafka’s community of mice to the collective of freak outcasts in the TV series Heroes.

Hopeful Message for the Days Ahead from a Bestselling Author The future of this planet has never looked bleaker . . . or brighter. The darkest time in all of history, as well as the most brilliant for the people of God, lies before us. Jesus' own words about the wheat and the weeds warn us of this: "Let both grow together until the harvest." In a hopeful, inspiring call to action, bestselling author and pastor Don Finto challenges believers the world over to become radical, God-empowering, miracle-working, people-rescuing followers of Jesus as the final harvest nears. Delving into Scripture, he shows how we can prepare for the exciting possibilities of the days ahead, including how to press into the light, shine more brightly in the deepening darkness, protect ourselves during the ultimate Passover, watch for the signs of Jesus' return, wrestle for victory, and more! Evil may be on the rise. But even greater is God's army--and our best days lie ahead.

Did you know that we are living in the end times? The Bible teaches that Christians, right now, are living in the end times, the last days. The Old Testament saints believed that. Jesus taught the Kingdom of Heaven was at hand. The Apostles taught that we live in the last days. The Church of Jesus Christ has always believed that they live in the end times. Even now, the Church eagerly awaits the final consummation of the ages, when Christ will return with a shout, the voice of the archangel and the trumpet call of God. In that moment we shall be changed from corruptible to incorruptible. But what about right now? In light of the biblical fact that we are living in the end times, how should we live every day? The purpose of this book is to explain how Christians should live each day as if it were their final days while living in the end times. This means that we ought to give particualr attention to Bible reading, biblical mediation, church attendance, preaching of the word, missions and prayer. This is not a scan or facsimile, and contains an active table of contents for electronic versions.

A startling exploration of the history of the most controversial book of the Bible, by the bestselling author of Beyond Belief. Through the bestselling books of Elaine Pagels, thousands of readers have come to know and treasure the suppressed biblical texts known as the Gnostic Gospels. As one of the world's foremost religion scholars, she has been a pioneer in interpreting these books and illuminating their place in the early history of Christianity. Her new book, however, tackles a text that is firmly, dramatically within the New Testament canon: The Book of Revelation, the surreal apocalyptic vision of the end of the world . . . or is it? In this startling and timely book, Pagels returns The Book of Revelation to its historical origin, written as its author John of Patmos took aim at the Roman Empire after what is now known as "the Jewish War," in 66 CE. Militant Jews in Jerusalem, fired with religious fervor, waged an all-out war against Rome's occupation of Judea and their defeat resulted in the desecration of Jerusalem and its Great Temple. Pagels persuasively interprets Revelation as a scathing attack on the decadence of Rome. Soon after, however, a new sect known as "Christians" seized on John's text as a weapon against heresy and infidels of all kinds-Jews, even Christians who dissented from their increasingly rigid doctrines and hierarchies. In a time when global religious violence surges, Revelations explores how often those in power throughout history have sought to force "God's enemies" to submit or be killed. It is sure to appeal to Pagels's committed readers and bring her a whole new audience who want to understand the roots of dissent, violence, and division in the world's religions, and to appreciate the lasting appeal of this extraordinary text.

How are Christians to live in the midst of a society that is collapsing into anarchy and a church that is being overwhelmed by apostasy? In other words, how are we to respond to increasing paganism? Are we to ignore it, embrace it, or take a stand against it in behalf of righteousness? Dr. Reagan begins this hard-hitting book with a breathtaking review of the breakdown of society and the apostasy that is raging within the church. He then outlines how we are to live for Christ by: Standing on the Word of God Believing in the Power of God Relying on the Holy Spirit Practicing Tough Faith Ordering Priorities Keeping an Eternal Perspective Standing for Righteousness Persisting in Prayer Surrendering in Worship Clinging to Hope The book concludes with a survey of God’s prophetic promises for the future which guarantee believers a great victory over this world when the Lord Jesus Christ returns.

Wars and rumors of wars, blood moons, natural disasters, the onslaught of terrorism, spreading heresies—the news is filled with reports of such things. But which of them are truly “signs of the times,” according to biblical prophecy? God says, “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come” (Isaiah 46:10). The One who knows the future has revealed much about it in His Word, the Bible. This book contains one hundred questions concerning the end times, answered from a biblical perspective. “How can I understand the book of Revelation?” “What is Israel’s role?” “What is the rapture?” “Should I be worried about 666?” “Are we living in the end times?” We don’t have all the details of what will happen, but this book will point you consistently to the Bible for answers. The student of Scripture should have an advantage when it comes to prophecy: “You, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief” (1 Thessalonians 5:4). Eschatology is a fascinating and beneficial study. Following current events is sometimes like watching pieces of a puzzle fall into place. We know God’s purposes will stand and what He has decreed will come to pass.

Over the last quarter-century, evangelicalism has become an important social and political force in modern America. Here, new voices in the field are brought together with leading scholars such as William E. Connolly, Michael Barkun, Simon Dalby, and Paul Boyer to produce a timely examination of the spatial dimensions of the movement, offering useful and compelling insights on the intersection between politics and religion. This comprehensive study discusses evangelicalism in its different forms, from the moderates to the would-be theocrats who, in anticipation of the Rapture, seek to impose their interpretations of the Bible upon American foreign policy. The result is a unique appraisal of the movement and its geopolitical visions, and the wider impact of these on America and the world at large.

I was asked recently why I decided to write this book when there are numerous "famous" authors on the subject? The question took me by surprise, but as I pondered my reasons, my response was two-fold: - I wanted to write a book that the general public (lay persons) could read with a high degree of comprehension, using word structure that is common in everyday language. - I wanted the book to lend itself to being used as the material for a detailed Bible study on the end-times. I am currently working on a journal to complement the book. As the reader works through the chapters of this book, he/she will discover: - how Daniel's prophecies predict the seven years of Tribulation. These prophecies serve as the backbone of this book; - why Christ chose the seven churches in chapters 2 and 3; - details about the rapture . . . when it will occur, who is involved""Don't be left behind; - details of the Judgment Seat of Christ; - details of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse; - description of the Seven Seals, Seven Trumpets, and Seven Bowls""when they occur, their devastation and purpose; - the Antichrist""discussed in detail; - details about the great revival during the first months of Tribulation; - who the two witnesses are and their purpose during the first half of Tribulation; - details regarding the Marriage Supper of the Lamb; - fascinating details of the Glorious Appearing and Armageddon; - surprising revelations about Satan; - details of the Judgment of the Sheep and Goats and the Great White Throne Judgment; - fascinating details about the Millennial Reign of Christ; - how many Books of Life exist. Are there more than one? - a full discussion of the New Heaven and New Earth; - the author's "time line" of events that happened during the seven-year Tribulation Period and beyond.

By linking building theory to the emancipatory project of critique advanced by radical thinkers in our time, this work investigates the key conceptual and historical elements that culminate in an emancipatory theory of building entitled: 'Toward a philosophy of shelter’. Taking Marx as its only resource, this work proceeds with the conviction that our era is contemporaneous to Marx’s historical era. This means ‘not judging the validity of Marx from the perspective of the historical situation’, but rather, ‘demonstrating the validity of a Marxian perspective for a singular historical situation’, as ours. This work will therefore translate this perspective into seeing the situation of architecture through the eyes of Marx. All those concerned with the predicament in our current condition in which architecture must play a major social role in upholding the universal value of what Alain Badiou calls 'generic humanity' will take an interest in this work. In particular, architects, critics, scholars, and students inside the field of architecture who would be seeking the application of this universal value to a new theory of building will be a welcoming audience for this work.

Hank Hanegraaff reveals the code to Revelation. Breaking the code of the book of Revelation has become an international obsession. The result, according to Hank Hanegraaff, has been rampant misreading of Scripture, bad theology, and even bad politics and foreign policy. Hanegraaff argues that the key to understanding the last book of the Bible is the other sixty-five books of the Bible — not current events or recent history and certainly not any complicated charts. The Apocalypse Code offers sane answers to some very controversial questions: What does it mean to take the book of Revelation (and the rest of the Bible) literally? Who are the “Antichrist” and the “Great Whore of Babylon,”and what is the real meaning of “666”? How does our view of the end times change the way we think about the crisis in the Middle East? Are two-thirds of all Jews really headed for an apocalyptic holocaust? The Apocalypse Code is a call to understand what the Bible really says about the end times and why how we understand it matters so much in today’s world. “Provocative and passionate, this fascinating book is a must-read for everyone who’s interested in end-times controversies.” — Lee Strobel, Author, The Case for the RealJesus “This book is a withering and unrelenting critique of the positions of apocalyptic enthusiasts such as Tim LaHaye. Every fan of theLeft Behindseries should read this book. The fog will clear, and common sense will return to our reading of the Bible.” — Gary M.

Many Christians think of end times prophecy as a gigantic, intimidating puzzle -- difficult to piece together and impossible to figure out. But every puzzle can be solved if you approach it the right way. Paul Benware compares prophecy to a picture puzzle. Putting the edge pieces together first builds the 'framework' that makes it easier to fit the other pieces in their place. According to Benware, the framework for eschatology is the biblical covenants. He begins his comprehensive survey by explaining the major covenants. Then he discusses several different interpretations of end times prophecy. Benware digs into the details of the Rapture, the Great Tribulation, the judgements and resurrections, and the millennial kingdom. But he also adds a unique, personal element to the study, answering questions as: -Why study bible prophecy? -What difference does it make if I'm premillenial or amillenial? If what the Bible says about the future puzzles you, Understanding End Times Prophecy will help you put together the pieces and see the big picture.

In recent years, the rise of research-creation—a scholarly activity that considers art practices as research methods in their own right—has emerged from the organic convergences of the arts and interdisciplinary humanities, and it has been fostered by universities wishing to enhance their public profiles. In How to Make Art at the End of the World Natalie Loveless draws on diverse perspectives—from feminist science studies to psychoanalytic theory, as well as her own experience advising undergraduate and graduate students—to argue for research-creation as both a means to produce innovative scholarship and a way to transform pedagogy and research within the contemporary neoliberal university. Championing experimental, artistically driven methods of teaching, researching, and publication, research-creation works to render daily life in the academy more pedagogically, politically, and affectively sustainable, as well as more responsive to issues of social and ecological justice.

Los Angeles, circa 1998, Sam Seitz is a mildly successful comedian with five Tonight Show appearances who is actively trying to lose his religion so that he might “pursue the mindless goal of becoming famous for the sake of fame, without hindrance, setting aside the truth that so easily besets” him. Coming from a family of the most famous evangelicals in the country, apostatizing is no small task. After all, his family has been called “the Kennedys of the evangelical world.” For the first time in his life he feels like unbelief is within reach, until he notices that Jesus is following him. Literally. Not to mention the demons he starts seeing, but they might be with the drug dealer who happens to be his stripper girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend. And let’s not leave out the night God tells him in a dream that he only has twenty-four hours to live. Thus begins his quest to find a way to reverse this proclamation, but hopefully one that doesn’t involve repentance, since he’s trying to deconvert and all. The End Times Comedy Show is a satire of the evangelical landscape that is filled with kindness, faith, and warmth for its characters. Blending magical realism and dark humor, Ramsey takes the theological subject of “crucified with Christ” to parabolic and hilarious extremes, all while avoiding heresy.

Remember when End Time Rewind warned you not to fall for the Doomsday-Rapture theories of Dispensational Premillennialism and their Zionist partners? Well, now that we've survived John Hagee's Four Blood Moons, Jonathan Cahn's Super Shemitah, and the menacing tentacles of the now defunct European Union and Islamic State (the supposed Beast Kingdoms of Revelation 17), the Futurist's next false claim centers around the 70-year anniversary of Israel's founding. Is the Jewish State really the prophetic clock by which God aligns world events and the return of Christ? Many Doomsday-Rapture forecasts have been put forth in the name of Futurism since the 2nd-century AD, none of which have come to fruition. This is disconcerting, because failed predictions and false expectations promoted by our Christian counterparts diminishes the credibility of the Bible and scars the reputation and integrity of the Prophetic Office of Jesus Christ. The age-old, tried-and-true Orthodox (aka Partial or Classical) Preterist approach maintains that the majority of Bible prophecies were already fulfilled by the end of the first century AD, and included Jesus' appearing in an Old Testament-styled, non-physical manifestation with power and great glory. All that remains to be accomplished in the future is for Jesus Christ to physically return to raise the dead (which is when the rapture also occurs), preside over the final judgment, and create a new heaven and earth devoid of sin and death where the new and holy Jerusalem from heaven descends (as per Revelation 20:7 - Revelation 22:5).

We are living through a digital revolution which already touches every area of life and will continue to shape the future in as yet unforeseen ways. Digital technologies are an ordinary part of daily life, and yet they also present an unprecedented challenge to Christians to articulate a biblical, theological framework to navigate times of rapid change. The work of the French theologian Jacques Ellul is a theological time-bomb primed for times like these. Accounts of Ellul's career often divide off his sociology and theology, but this book argues that Ellul conceived a single project of bringing technology into confrontation with the Word of God, tackling the phenomenon he named technique, the pursuit of maximal power and efficiency implicit in the technological enterprise, with a profound depth of biblical and ethical insight. Centering himself on the apocalypse or revelation of Jesus Christ in history, Ellul offers a monumental, timely (though far from flawless) contribution to contemporary ethical debates about the uses and abuses of technologies. His work blazes a trail that Christians and all concerned for the future would do well to follow, as we avoid both the naivety of "technological neutrality" and the dread of "technological determinism."

The idea of "The Rapture" -- the return of Christ to rescue and deliver Christians off the earth -- is an extremely popular interpretation of the Bible's Book of Revelation and a jumping-off point for the best-selling "Left Behind" series of books. This interpretation, based on a psychology of fear and destruction, guides the daily acts of thousands if not millions of people worldwide. In The Rapture Exposed, Barbara Rossing argues that this script for the world's future is nothing more than a disingenuous distortion of the Bible. The truth, Rossing argues, is that Revelation offers a vision of God's healing love for the world. The Rapture Exposed reclaims Christianity from fundamentalists' destructive reading of the biblical story and back into God's beloved community.

It’s time to take matters into her own hands. Without telling her mum, or more importantly, asking her permission, Ollie finds the perfect place to start her new life. End Cottage has a duck-egg blue front door, a garden that leads to acres of forest, and definitely counts as her dream home. Now all Ollie has to do is complete the rest of her list and find out who she really is, before she can imagine any romance coming into her life. After all, how is she going to find her dream man in the middle of a forest... Reading Beth Moran’s gorgeous novels makes every day better. Uplifting, smart, with unforgettable characters and gorgeous settings, it’s impossible not to fall in love with a Beth Moran story. Perfect for all fans of Jill Mansell, Julie Houston, and Jenny Colgan. Praise for Beth Moran: ‘Life-affirming, joyful and tender.’ Zoe Folbigg 'Every day is a perfect day to read this.’ Shari Low 'A British author to watch.' Publisher's Weekly

A Rabbi Offers a Fresh Look at the End Times Few topics capture the imagination of believers like the last days. Yet fear and incorrect teachings continue to surround this topic.
