Back during Easter, I taught on “the Beginning”. We talked about the whole time line of world events from History and the Bible. Several things came up and I was unable to finish the series.
What is going to happen in the end? We want to know. We are curious.
Here is why:
Our perception of the end directly shapes the way we live now.
Eschatology is the part of our study of God that is concerned with the final events of the world, or the ultimate destiny of humanity.
For those of you who grew up in church, you probably have been taught some version of the end of the world. Heaven and Hell. Some churches talk about it a whole lot. The church I grew up in talked about it all the time!
We are going to spend the next few months on 1st Wednesdays talking about some key parts to Eschatology. Second Coming of Jesus, Marriage, Great Battle, Judgment/Justice, Harvest, Birth.
Tonight, we will start with a part that most might not think is important, but I believe it is one of the core concepts that Eschatology deals with.
