When the Apostle Peter wrote in his epistle: “The end of all things is at hand,” is it possible that “at hand” could mean thousands of years later? Or did he mean that the end of all things was actually about to occur? In this 14 minute video, this question is addressed.
As we continue to show the thinking of the Apostles with regard to their belief in the Last Days, you will notice in this video that the Apostle Peter points out in his speech to the audience at Pentecost in Acts 2 that they were living in the Last Days. He also makes note that the time in which he was living was in the process of fulfilling what was told by the Prophet Joel.
Did his audience get the point? Yes!! it says they were cut to the heart and wondered what they should do.
Jesus said in Mark 13:30: “I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.” Do these words seem hard to understand? Then why is there so much controversy over this?
In the final segment of this video series, this is discussed, and why we can believe what Jesus said.
What did Jesus really say about the last days in Mark Chapter 13.
Was it truly for his disciples, or was he really speaking to us?
In part 2 of this video, we will examine closely the wording of this chapter.

“The Israel of God”-Introduction
Our title is taken from the pen of Paul in Gal 6:15&16. These verses read: “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.” (NKJV) Therefore, “the Israel of God”, in conjunction with the covenants that God has made with her, will be the foundation upon which this study is built. This is because an understanding of God’s dealings with Israel is paramount in gaining a proper perspective of His plan for the ages.
Many books have been written on the subject of eschatology (the study of future things).
So, why this study? Continue reading The Israel of God – Part 1
