Preterism holds that prophecies such as the destruction of Jerusalem, the Antichrist, the Great Tribulation, and the Day of the Lord were fulfilled AD 70 when the Roman general Titus sacked Jerusalem and destroyed the Jewish Temple. Can you see what's wrong with this picture? »»
The "Thief on the Cross" was promised by Jesus to be in "paradise" that same day they both died on the cross.

Find out what really happens when the righteous die. »»
If you produce and sell anything on the Bible such as a book, Bible software, or even a Bible version, you may be surprised to find that you that some Christians will make it a point to tell you how wrong you are to charge for it—because Jesus or Paul or the prophets did not charge for their teaching.

The enigmatic Parable of the Ten Virgins seems loaded with potential teaching on the end times. The wedding feast of the Lamb's Second Coming, the oil that is needed to enter the feast or Kingdom, and the mysterious “go buy” command that throws us for a loop on our ideas for the oil.

Most would prefer to avoid the Great Tribulation through a "pretrib rapture." In my experience, Revelation 3:10 is often used to prove this since it promises to keep "thee" from a global hour of testing for all on earth. But who is "thee"—all believers or someone else? The audience of any passage is what determines that. Ignoring the audience is a major source of false doctrine that deceives and even puts us in bondage. Learn how to pay attention to audience through several examples including the letter to the Church in Philadelphia of Revelation 3. »»

Find out how to never fall for a doomsday date again and how to correctly use end times Bible prophecy. »»
The rapture is the hope of hundreds of millions of Christians. Unfortunately, according to Bible prophecy, most will be "left behind" weeping and gnashing their teeth (as Jesus portrayed it). This can happen if we trust in what men have taught and not what Jesus actually said about belonging to him at his coming (1Co 15:23). Find out what most Christians are missing about the true requirements for the rapture so that you can be sure not to be left behind. »»
We study Bible prophecy expecting to understand what's going to happen with hopefully some idea of when. Yet along the way, there are several discoveries you won't expect or maybe prefer not to learn. For example, God's special place to protect us from the Great Tribulation is not in heaven and getting there takes more than professing Jesus; it takes listening and obedience. Worse for some is the constant failure of date setters but with timing clues we do have raising the prospect of having to wait way longer for the Second Coming than anyone dreamed. Perhaps most surprising is why it's OK if you don't study (or understand) Bible prophecy at all? »»

An Ipsos poll found that 25% of adults believed it was at least "somewhat likely" that "Jesus Christ will return to Earth" in the coming year. Among white evangelical Christian adults surveyed, a whopping 46% believed this. Now six years after that poll in 2006 Jesus still has not returned. Why not? Want to know why Jesus did not come in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, or 2012 as so many expected—and still won’t come in 2013? The reason has to do with several overlooked prerequisites to the rapture, until which the “end is not yet” according to Jesus. Read Featured Article
