Sciencing End Times – Part II
Wednesday, October 26, 2016
Pastor Dave Clear
Seven key building blocks of “end time” study
1. The sequence of major end time events
2. Three components of humanity
c. The church
Israel – introduce salvation’s plan
Church – increase the recipients
Gentiles – mainly instruments of God
Dangerous false teaching out there in relation to the church, replacement theology, teaching “the church has replaced Israel”
3. The purpose and length of the Tribulation and Great Tribulation
The Tribulation is a period of seven years.
The Great Tribulation is a period of three-and-half years (end of the Tribulation)
Purpose of the Great Tribulation:
1. God uses it to destroy the other nations.
2. God uses it to purify Israel.
4. The purpose of the Rapture.
I Thessalonians 1:9-10
To hide us safely out of the way before God visits the time of His wrath.
