Bad Eschatology, Part 5 – Why This Is So Hard

Before going after all the other purveyors of Bad Eschatology, I’d like to take a deep breath and talk about two reasons why the Last Days were always going to be impossible to understand.

God’s Purpose

Seal Six

And, I can tell you from personal experience how hard it has been to see even a little bit of what will happen in the Last Days. So, let’s take a moment to understand why this is so hard, and why we need to be a bit humble about what we know.

Bad Eschatology, Part 1 – Introduction

I dedicated much of my life to the Redemption of Israel. During my 15 years in Jerusalem, nothing was more important. It would be miraculous. It would be awesome. I wanted to be a part of that work of God. But then, our Lord dragged me off to Taiwan, and that’s when I began to see something serious:

The suffering and death of five billion people.

My hyper-positive focus on Israel had left me unable to see a vast catastrophe that would crush our civilization and kill billions. And, because of our bad eschatology, we aren’t able to see what’s coming.

Let’s dig in to all that badness.

The Four Horsemen – Conclusion

Sorry to take so long to get this conclusion out. I’ve been hard at work putting together an overview of the pretribulation rapture theory. This will be the first of many overviews of different theories about the Last Days.

There’s a reason why the truth about the Last Days was sealed. And, I’m not sure that it has been unsealed yet, so we should all be a little humble about our thoughts on this topic. I will certainly do my best.

Anyway, let’s wrap up these four horsemen with a conclusion.

The Four Horsemen, Part Two – The Red Horse

The Ride of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse has supernatural origins, but natural causes. Everything that we see them do can be traced back to something natural, even though the Hand of God set it all in motion. This is especially true for this next article in this series:

The Rider of the Red Horse

When violence sweeps the earth, we will see some very basic and natural reasons for why it will be happening. However, history shows that the news media will get those reasons wrong. So, don’t be surprised when they describe the next Arab Spring as a desire for freedom.

The Four Horsemen, Part One – The White Horse

Revelation 6 introduces the ride of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse in a specific order. There is a reason why the White Horse goes first, followed by the Red, then the Black and finally the Pale Horse ridden by Death.

Why do these horsemen ride out in that particular order?

What purpose do these horsemen fulfill?

Are we in a position to know?

If not, when would we know?

These are interesting questions that are worth asking, as long as we understand that the truth might be different than what we see, right now.
