Expecting a "rapture"? You're 2000+ years late. Are we living in the "end times" or the "last days"?

There are only 5 places in the New Testament where the term "last days" shows up (Acts 2:17, 2 Tim. 3:1, Hebrews 1:2, James 5:3, 2 Peter 3:3). By reading the context of those five places, we should be able to get a good understanding of what the writers of the New Testament meant by "last days." Hebrews 1:1,2 gives us a clear understanding of what "last days" refers to: "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these LAST DAYS spoken unto us by his Son..." Is there any doubt that "last days" refers to the time of Jesus and the generation living at that time?

The writers of the New Testament all knew of Jesus' prediction of the destruction of the Jewish Temple (Matt 23:33,38 and other references). Consequently they knew they were living in the "last days" of the Jewish nation. All the references of "last days" in the New Testament have a contemporary context. Look at 2 Tim 3:1-7. Paul was writing a letter of instruction to Timothy. Paul said, "This know also, that is the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves...FROM SUCH TURN AWAY." How could Timothy turn away from such men if these verses referred to 2001 or later? The context here clearly shows that "last days" had reference to that time 2,000 years ago.

According to the Great Commission the Church is to "disciple the nations." That doesn't sound like things will get worse, but better! And the reason the Church will succeed in its mission is because Jesus said "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye THEREFORE!" Praise God! The Bible teaches an eschatology of VICTORY--not defeat--for the Church in time, in history.

The Mahlstedts--Bob, Judy and Jonathan

...yes, I (Bob) am a normal human being and sane Christian who loves the Lord and believes the Bible to be the inspired Word of God without error. I attended a conservative (Dallas Theo Seminary-type) Bible College where Premillennialism was taught and all other views scorned. Now I'm thinking that preterism is the most sound Biblical approach to prophecy. Why? Read on!

The following is everything Revelation says about the "antichrist."



(That's all folks! The word "antichrist" does NOT appear anywhere in the book of Revelation!)
