   Looking at Israel Prophetically
   Daniel 9:27; 11:36-45; Revelation 11; Ezekiel 38, 30
Wednesday Evening Service,  August 24, 2011
There are many different events and circumstances taking place that indicate the stage is being set for the Tribulation Period. Though there are no signs for the Rapture of the Church, the circumstances in the Middle East cause us to wonder if the time is drawing near.

   Prophetic Israel Today
   Deuteronomy 7:6-8; 28:1-65; Genesis 12:1-3
Wednesday Evening Service,  August 17, 2011
This is the first session of two concerning Israel. The goal this evening is to build a foundation upon which we can look at Israel prophetically and how we should position ourselves with regard to the nation of Israel today. Next week, we will look more at current events in Israel and the Middle East to see how they interface with biblical prophecy. We will also note some events that will probably take place prior to the rapture of the church and the Tribulation Period.

   The Future Judgments of God
   Matthew 24-25; Revelation 20:5, 11-15; Joel 3:1-2; Zechariah 12:10-13; 14:3
Wednesday Evening Service,  July 20, 2011
There are some 38 -42 judgments of God in the Bible, depending on what is and what is not included. There are seven future judgments that will take place following the rapture of the church - 1) Judgment of Believer's Works (Bema Seat), 2) the Tribulation Judgments (seven of each - Seals, Trumpets and Vials), 3) Final Judgment upon the Nation of Israel, 4) Judgment of the Nations, 5) Judgment upon the Fallen Angels, 6) Judgment upon the Beast, Antichrist, False Prophet, the Great Harlot and Satan and 7) The Great White Throne Judgment.

Judgment is always against sin except at the Bema Seat, where believer's will be rewarded on the basis of their works.

   The Rapture of the Church
   1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
Wednesday Evening Service,  July 13, 2011
The Rapture of the Church takes place prior to the Great Tribulation recorded in Revelation chapters 6-19. The Tribulation Period is known as a time of Jacob's Trouble (Jeremiah 30:6-7). This period is referred to in Daniel as the seventieth week. Since the first 69 weeks were directly related to Israel, it only makes sense to believer that the last week will be related to Israel as well. The Church is promised deliverance from God's wrath also known as the Hour of Temptation (Revelation 3:10; I Thessalonians 1:10, 5:9).

   The Church and the Coming of Christ
   Matthew 24; 1 Thessalonians 4-5; 2 Thessalonians 1-2
Wednesday Evening Service,  July 6, 2011
Many believe that the Lord will rapture the church before the Tribulation, and that the Rapture and Second Coming are two separate events. However, a look at the Olivet Discourse, especially in light of Paul's application of it to the church in the Thessalonian Epistles seems to indicate that the church will go through the Tribulation. At the very least, it is wise to be prepared for such a possibility.

   The Great Tribulation
   Isaiah 24-27; Jeremiah 30; Daniel 9, 12; Matthew 24-25; Revelation 4-20
Wednesday Evening Service,  June 29, 2011
From time to time we witness amazing catastrophes upon the earth, from wild fires, to floods, violent tornadoes, hurricanes, earth quakes, tsunamis, pandemics, wars, and many other disasters. But these events are mere tremors compared to the Great Tribulation prophesied in Scripture. The Bible speaks of a time of unprecedented angst and destruction that will shake the foundations of the planet and kill literally billions of people. What is the significance of this time of great trouble? Do these Scriptures foretell real events or figurative? In this study we will read through several passages which foretell the Great Tribulation, look at various views on how to interpret the Tribulation, and finally answer the question, “What shall we do?” in light of the Bible’s teaching.

   The Eternal State: The Goal of Redemptive History
   Genesis 1-2; Revelation 21-22
Wednesday Evening Service,  June 8, 2011
When we take a trip it is important to know our destination. If we do not know where we are headed we wander or become lost. As believers in Christ, we have answers for this world because our eschatology teaches us not only who we are but also where we are going. In this session we will consider the ‘metanarrative’ or ‘grand story’ of all of redemption history by looking at the beginning of the story and at the end of the story. We begin where the Bible begins, in Genesis 1-2, and end where the Bible ends, in Revelation 21-22. Comparing these chapter pairs encourages us that God has a sovereign plan, a plan which brings God and His people into perfect oneness.

   Sensationalism Versus Substance - Part 3
   Daniel 9:24-27; Acts 1:6-8; Isaiah 2:1-4; 11-12; 2 Kings 21, 23; Psalm 74; Lamentations 3; Revelation 20:1-4
Wednesday Evening Service,  June 1, 2011
Putting together a timeline of end time events is sometimes like doing a jigsaw puzzle. People’s puzzles that they construct sometimes differ from one another, sometimes because a person doesn’t have all of the right pieces, or because he is using different pieces, or because there is disagreement about what the picture should look like in the end. In this session we will finish our introduction to Eschatology by considering the issue of ‘biblical hermeneutics,’ or the science of putting together the biblical pieces to make the correct picture. Ultimately we must answer the question, are the biblical pieces present, and may they be arranged in an order sufficient to support a dispensational eschatology, i.e. a view of the end times in which God finishes His plan with the nation of Israel?

   Sensationalism Versus Substance - Part 2
   Matthew 24; Daniel 9
Wednesday Evening Service,  May 18, 2011
In part one of this study we looked at various claims made by men throughout church history until modern times that they could pinpoint the time of Jesus' return. In order to make these claims most date-setters do a fair amount of mathematics using times and numbers in Scripture along with dates in history which are often uncertain. The result has led to one false claim after another, encouraging onlookers to scoff at the idea of the Lord's return. In part two we begin to examine the prophetic material offered to us in the Scriptures in order to determine how certain the Bible allows us to be about the time of Christ's return and about what will then take place upon the earth. Overall, we see that when God gives prophecy to His people it is always for their encouragement and edification.

   Sensationalism Versus Substance - Part 1
   Mark 13:32; 2 Peter 3:3-13
Wednesday Evening Service,  May 11, 2011
The subject of eschatology—or the doctrine of final things—is a fascinating subject. The mysterious nature of biblical prophecy demands that the interpreter search for meaning with understanding. But this also means that prophecy can be open to a variety of interpretations, some of them more fanciful than others. It is important, therefore, at the beginning of our study to separate sensationalism from substance. In this three-part series, we will first look at the various ways that biblical prophecies have been obviously misused and misapplied. Next we will begin to look at the various pieces of prophecy and where they must be placed upon the eschatological timetable.
