It's the End of the World as We Know It

Pneuma Springs Publishing, Jun 1, 2006 - Religion - 184 pages
The opening years of this decade have been typified by terrorist atrocities such as 9/11; wars in places like Afghanistan and Iraq; starvation and disease in Africa; natural disasters such as the Tsunami and the earthquakes in Turkey and Pakistan. For the Christian, none of these should be a surprise. They are the 'signs of the times', Jesus himself described events such as these as 'the beginning of birth pangs' which point to His Second Coming. This book has been written as a guide to the end time prophecies in the Bible in order that the reader may understand events such as the Rapture, the Millennium, the judgement of the nations and Israel and decipher mysterious personalities such as the beast, the antichrist and the false prophet as the return of Christ draws near.
