ESCHATOLOGY

Post  RayMart on Sat May 02, 2009 11:59 pm

Eschatology
- is the branch of Biblical Theology which deals with the study of future events
- the core of study is prophecy
Etymology
Greek Words:
ESCHATOS – last
LOGOS – study or subject
Prophecy
1. Hebrew word:
NABA – to speak God’s message to the people under the influence of the Divine Spirit
2. Greek word:
PROPHETEA – the speaking forth of the minds and counsel of God, comes from two Greek words, PRO – means forth and PHEMI – to speak.

SIGNS OF THE TIMES
1. The return of the Jews to Israel (Israel restored)
2. Rise of Super Powers (European Union)/Reunification of Europe
o There are 4 Super Powers that conquered Israel
1) Babylonians
2) Medo-Persians
3) Grecians
4) Romans
In May 14,1948, Israel was granted by Un its independence (independent country)

In the Bible:
First beast – anti-Christ
Second beast – leader of one world religion
Sea – nations of the world

The fulfillment of the 10 toes (mentioned – Daniel) is the 10 Magna Regions
3. The coming of the anti-Christ
4. Rise of a world religion
5. The rebuilding of the third temple
6. The invasion of Israel

One world government, one world religion, one world currency, one world market, one world constitution, one world Bible, one world Christ, one world mark

I. TRIBULATION PERIOD/JACOB’S TROUBLE/70th WEEK OF DANIEL
- This seven-year tribulation is divided into two halves mentioned in Dan. 9:27; Matt. 24:21 and Rev. 11:2-3.
1, 260 days (Rev. 11:3, 12:6)
42 months (Rev. 11:2, 13:5)
A time and times dividing of time (Dan. 7:25)
In the midst of the week (Dan. 9:27)
- refers to the 70th week of years of vision (dan. 9:24-27; Rev. 11:2-3) wherein the antichrist will reign and control the whole world with false place and safety within. The fist 3 ½ years of tribulation period and then the coming judgment and wrath of God transpire within the period of 3 ½ years called the great tribulation.
Greek word of tribulation:
THLIPSIS which means trouble, affection, sorrow
The 7-year tribulation period begins with the signing of protection, peace treaty with Israel that apparently also allows Israel to build the third temple (2 Thess. 2:4-6). It will be signed up by the antichrist.

3 Ministries of the Holy Spirit
1. indwelling
2. infilling
3. anointing













2 Thessalonians 2:4-6
v. 6 – the ministry of the Holy Spirit have to stop so that the antichrist may start his mission. This confirms Rev. 20:4 because there is no more indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of men but salvation is based on beheading.
v. 7 – only the Holy Spirit who lets the antichrist to come out until he be taken away or out of the way.

- the first 3 ½ years is relatively peaceful as the antichrist begins to consolidate his power based in Europe – the territory of the old Roman Empire.
- A number of events will occur at the midpoint which:
a. Satan is cast out of heaven by Michael (Rev. 12:7)
b. The antichrist recovers from an initial military set back even to a mortal wound to his person. Rev. 13 – ascends out of the abyss to afflict Israel from the world taking credit in defeating Gog.
c. The two witnesses who had been protected and had performed miracles during the first half are now allowed to be killed by the antichrist. (Rev. 11)
d. The one world church which had been manipulated by the antichrist is now cast aside.
e. The antichrist sets himself up as God to be worshipped by all men (abomination of desolation mentioned in Matt. 24 and Dan. 9:25) causing them to receive the mark on the right hand or forehead if they expect to buy and sell. (Rev. 13:16-18)

3 Kinds of Books in the Bible
1. Lamb’s Book of Life – is the book of God where all saved are recorded.
2. Book of Books – is the registry of all peple born on earth.
3. Book of Remembrance – is the book where God records godly conversations among believers.

I. RUSSIAN INVASION (Gog and Magog 1)
- This may take place few months after the middle of the tribulation period where probably antichrist will be wounded and claims to have died and resurrected and healed.

Rev. 13:2-5 – the verses that mention the Russian Invasion are found in Ezekiel 38-39, Daniel 11:36-45, particularly verse 40. The appearance of antichrist in this chapter make it to transpire during the tribulation period when antichrist will be wounded. Rev. 12:3

Gog is the leader, the chief prist of Mesheck (modern map-Moscow) and Tubal (modern map-Tobolsch) and Magog is the country. Exo. 38:2, 3). As we will in Gen. 10-11, Magog is one of the sons of Japheth. (descendants: Western People, USA, Canada, Northern and Southern America, Western and Eastern Europe which includes Russia, others call it the Northern part of Asia together with Gomer.

Ham’s descendants are the Southern Kings like Africans and Europians, Libyans, Egyptinas, while Shem’s descendants are the Israelites (Gen. 10:31-32;, 11:10-32)
The Russians will be defeated and 1/6 will be spared (Ez. 39

I. BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON
- the purpose of this battle is to defeat the antichrist and his empire in order for Jesus Christ t reign on earth a thousand years. World nations come forth and fight the indignation of the Lord where the sword of the Lord shall be filled with blood. Isaiah 34: 1- 6
Nations will be gathered in the valley of Jehoshaphat, Gentile man of war instructed to prepare where the wickedness shall be ended at the valley of decision then sun and moon shall be darkened Joel 3:2, 9, 10-15. During this time, Jerusalem will be a cap of trembling unto the Middle East and also a burdensome stone for all people of the world then the Lord shall destroy all nations that fight Jerusalem (Zechariah 12:1, 2).

The Lord shall gather all nations against Jerusalem house to house. The lOrd will be the one to fight and plagues will destroy the natios (zech. 14:2, 3, 12)). Reaping by the sickle of the Son of God and angel; mention of the blood levels the horse bridles (Rev. 14:14- 20).

The Lord gathers them together into a place called in the Hebrew “Armageddon” (Har – is the word of mountain while Mageddon is likely the ruins of ancient cities of Megiddo). Three unclean spirits will enter the Kings of the east and the whole world(Rev 16: 12- 16).

The white horse rider whose name is the Word of God with the heavenly armies will fight and kings of the earth and the beast, the image worshippers and his armies after their defeat fowls will eat them (Rev. 19:011- 21).

I. THE SECOND COMING IN GREAT POWER
This is the revelation of Christ publicly when he cometh with clouds and every eyes shall see Him and they also which pierced Him (Rev. 1: 7; Matt. 24: 30; Titus 2: 13).

In order to fight nations gathered in Armageddon, Jesus Christ’s feet shall stand and step upon the Mt. of Olives (Zech. 4: 12). The Second Coming of the second advent where he shall reveal Himself publicly to the world in great power and glory (Matt. 24: 30)), in flaming fire (2 Thes. 1: 8 ), in bodily form (acts 1:9- 11), in the glory of his Father with his angels (Matt. 16: 27), and with all his saints (1 Thess. 3: 13).

Revelations 19: 18- 21 speaks about the dramatic entrance of Christ to defeat all nations Rev. 19:11-21. He is crowned as glorious king, his eyes were as flames, clothed in vesture dipped in blood, and His name is the Word of God and out of his mouth goeth out a sword to smite all nations, and he will cast the antichrist and the False Prophet alive into the lake of fire. Details of the war are mentioned when Battle of Armageddon starts.

I. THE JUDGMENT OF NATIONS
Most Bible scholars and eschatologists place the judgment of nations between these two periods (Battle of Armageddon and Millennial Reign of Christ on earth), which are apparently for the sheep and goats judgment (Matthew 25) designed to ensure that only nations that helped the Jewish people during various times os dispensations will enter the kingdom and make-up the countries of the millennial earth, this is to prepare for the inauguration of the kingdom. Basis of judgment is how countries accepted or rejected the Jews (Matt.25:31-46).

I. SATAN IN BOTTOMLESS PIT FOR ONE THOUSAND YEARS
Rev. 20:1, “And I saw an angel come down from heaven”
The name of angel who will do the great deed of binding Satan is omitted. It is not even described as the work of an arch angel. When God’s time comes for Satan to be bound, just any angel would be able to do so. Satan is loose today, but his time will be up someday.

Rev. 20:1, “…..having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand”
This is real chain, Satan is a real being. Only real chain can bind real beings, although the Bible, does not say if the chain is made of gold, iron, or other earthly elements. It will be an actual, heavenly chain.

If prophecy is to be consistently interpreted, we must affirm an actual time of 1, 000 years. Satan will be no longer tempting mankind for one thousand years. There are four names listed here for the Enemy of Souls: Dragon; Old serpent; Devil; Satan.

I. MILLENNIAL REIGN OF CHRIST
This is one of the most longed-for revelation in prophecy. It describe the day when the prayer “thy kingdom come” would be fulfilled and the wish “peace on earth” becomes reality. (Latin “mile” – a thousand) a term which indicates the thousand years reign of Christ on the earth. The word millennium comes from the reference to a thousand years in Rev. 20:1-10).
o Millennialism is the teaching concerning the millennium. Several views are held on this subject.
o Pre-millennialism teaches that Christ will return before the millennium and set-up his kingdom of peace and righteousness on earth for a thousand years.
o Post-millennialism teaches that Christ will return after the millennium.
The millennium will be a golden age when the world will be becoming gradually better through the preaching of the gospel.
o A-millennialism – the word with its negative “A” millennium does not say this. It says that the millennium is not a literal thousand years period.
It thus refer to the prophesied coming 1,000 years period when Christ shall reign on earth with a rod of iron. (Rev. 20:4, 12:5) Satan shall be bound at this time and a period of earthly peace shall prevail. (Rev. 20:1-10). However, sin shall have its sting to natural men (unsaved people). They will still marry and multiply, and their offerings together with them will be the prey of Satan when he will be loosed after this period. In the Old Testament, this period described as the period of the kingdom of heaven (Dan. 2:44; 7:13, 14). Isaiah 11 is key Old Testament passage which tell of the peace and righteousness of this time. Israel shall be restored and converted, and it shall have an honored place in this millennial kingdom (Zech. 820-23; Acts 1:6). Rev. 20 indicates six times that the initial phase of God’s eternal kingdom will involve a 1, 000 years reign of Christ on the earth. It is a return to the Garden of Eden to demonstrate that physical life on this planet can be “good.” Lifespan will be lengthened to the apparent .original ideal of 1, 000 years. Blessedness will characterize the period, although the sin nature of man will not be eradicated and therefore the rebel will be dealt with brutally by the Messiah (Isa. 65). The Biblical Christians are in their glorified body and will no longer enter into marriage.

After fulfilling the promised earthly blessings to Israel (Gen. 12) and also proving that even in a perfect environment, man still inclined to rebel (Rev. 20), God destroys the current heavens and new earth which will be the eternal abode of believers from all the ages of human history (Rev. 21:22). There will be no resurrection during the 1, 000 years (Rev. 20:5). Extension of the first resurrection shall be restored.

I. GOG AND MAGOG FINAL WAR/GOG AND MAGOG II
Rev. 20:7-10 says, when Satan shall be loosed, he will be into the Final War, and shall go out to deceive nations from the four corners of the world. This time fire will come down from heaven, and shall devour them, “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are and shall be tormented day and night.” The difference between this Final War and the first Gog and Magog War (Ezekiel 38 and 39) is involvement of war from the four corners of the world while Russian invasion is an alliance with Southern Kings against Israel.

I. GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT (Rev. 2:11-15)
This will be the final earthly judgment of all unsaved people of the world throughout human history from Adam to the last person born on earth. The basis will be their rejection of the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ at the cross of Calvary. All who are not found in the Book of Life will be cast in the lake of fire, which is the second death, the final and complete separation or cutting off from God’s presence and a sin-cleansed universe. Here the Lord will simply show how each unsaved rejected the sharing of the gospel to them so that they are without excuse (Ezekiel 3:17-19).

I. NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTH
(Rev. 21:1-5) The Bible does reveal that after the millennial reign of Christ and the Great white throne judgment, there will appear “a new heaven and new earth” (Rev. 21:1), with the new Jerusalem descending out of heaven from God” (Rev. 21:10), its appearance, measure, and size are mentioned in Rev. 21. However, the new heaven and the new earth’s configuration, size and appearance, we know nothing. Doubtless, these will be regions of eternal bloom and beauty. Saints in eternity will enjoy a totally new kind of existence – “no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither there shall be anymore pain; for the former things are passed away” (Rev. 21:4). The service of God out of pure love and pleasure (Rev. 20:3-4) and the enjoyment of God and His new creation will be eternal occupation of the redeemed.

IT WILL BE ENTIRELY NEW HEAVEN, NEW EARTH AND NEW JERUSALEM, GOD WILL DESTROY THE OLD ONES. Rev. 21:2, “And I saw new heaven and new earth,” new – kainos p. 791 of Vines Dictionary denotes “new, of that which is unused (not new in time) but new as form and quality, and different nature as contrasted as old.” Greek word NEOS was not used which pertains to time in Col. 3:18 – believer’s new experience with the same old self. NEOS a reproduction of the old in quality or clean.

“For the first heaven and the first earth were passed and there was no more sea.” Here Greek word, APERCHOMAI was used which means to depart or go.
