What You’ll Discover in this Episode:
The Place of Eschatology in Biblical Counseling
As we look at our culture today, we look at what’s going on in the world, and someone says these are signs of the times. Jesus said when you see these things begin to happen we, “Look up for your redemption is drawing near.” This is our reminder that God is in control.
Because of this, we need to know what is happening in our world And the Book of Revelation contains a lot of Bible prophecy. This is also called eschatology, the study of end times events.
Contrary to what some people might say that this is too complex, the Bible says we should know these matters. Jesus said when you see the abomination of desolation spoken up by Daniel the prophet, he says, “Let the reader understand.” It means, we absolutely can understand it.
It is God’s desire to reveal, not to conceal. So, we don’t have to be afraid of this topic. These hard truths about God’s wrath are not in the Bible to scare us, but to prepare us. “Blessed is he who reads and hears the word of this prophecy and keeps the things in it because the time is near.” Revelation 1:3
True studying of Revelation is also true of studying Bible prophecy.
- Studying Bible prophecy helps me to remember that God is in control of all events in the world today.
- It gives you a heavenly perspective.
Are you ready?
And I think if you really believe that Christ could come back at any time, it will affect you in the way that you live. So if you understand Bible prophecy as you ought to, it will have a spiritually purifying effect, a positive effect on your life. There’s a lot of things that the Bible predicts that are happening before us. No doubt about it. We are living in the last days.
I think I can safely say that we’ve never been closer to the return of Jesus Christ than we are right here, right now. We need to be ready.
