Derek McCammonThe attack on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, DC on 9-11-2001 has caused many people to ask the question “Is this the End Times?” There is much uncertainty and unrest in the world but one thing is certain...

Lessons

Attack on America. On September 11, 2001, terrorists hijaked passenger jets and used them as missles by flying them into the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, DC. In the wake of this awful tragedy and act of war, America has called for prayer for the families and victims of this attack. Even though America has been quick to “pray to God”, there has been a distinct lack of specific reference to the one true source of peace... Christ Jesus .

Dating Paul's Books. There are two ways to identify when Paul wrote his letters in the New Testament during the Acts Period. First, when there are historical events mentioned in Acts or one of His 14 epistles. The event in history then provides a time marker for when the book was written. The second way is by the subject matter itself. These two methods allow you to put Paul’s books in order and thereby understand the progressive callings that Paul was responsible for communicating to Israel and Gentiles. We are called to learn the scriptures so we can compare the things that differ.

The attack on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, DC has caused many people to ask the question “Is this the End Times?” There is much uncertainty and unrest in the world but one thing is certain... Christ Jesus and His Word. It’s in His word where the student of scripture who rightly divides the word of truth, will ask the question and go to the Bible to search for the answer. What you will find is that there are specific events that must occur in order prior to the Lord’s return.

The Last Days. Why is modern day society focused on calling here and now the “Last Days”? Christian teaching is focused on mapping recent terrorist tragedies into Biblical events that indicate the “Last Days”. It’s interesting to note that throughout history, many catastrophic events were associated with “Last Days” enthusiasm. The majority of Christian ministries are always trying to figure out the “Last Times” which includes end times events like the rapture, the tribulation, the millenium. Just like the Apostles who asked the questions: When shall these things be?

Which Last Days? There are many “days” mentioned in scripture. It takes a workman to study and sort each reference and determine what applies to whom and when. The “Last Days” are mentioned in several passages, Genesis 49:1-2 being the first. As you will find, there are two primary sets of “Last Days”. The references in 1 & 2 Timothy apply to us today as members of the Body of Christ which is the church. All other references to The “Last Days” pertain to Israel and the restoration of their Nation.
