…Historically, most Christians avoid the books of Daniel and Revelation either partially or entirely. Everyone knows about the story of Daniel in the Lion’s Den, The Fiery Furnace and Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream. Few know much about the book of Daniel beyond the fall of Babylon. Fewer still have done more than glance at a few verses in Revelation.
Why do so many Christians avoid the two books that explain what is happening in the world today and why? The main reason is a lack of understanding about the way information is presented. Jesus explained important details about the future–both immediately after his death and during the End Times–in parables. He needed to explain things in a way that would be easy for his followers during and after his time on Earth would be able to understand. Not only this but after telling the parable, Jesus explains the double meaning of the parable.
I plan to go through specific texts in both Daniel and Revelation here to help make certain texts more accessible to you. It’s too important for you to not know what both books have to say about the state of the world during the End Times we are now in. Far too important.
On that note. It goes without saying there is alot of mistrust and misunderstandngs of anything God-related, mostly due to “well-meaning” Christians. Because of this, I also plan to spend a large chunk of time answering these four questions:
- What is God like?
- Why do bad things happen to good people?
- What does the Bible have to say about the state of the world?
- When will The End come?
These are some deeply profound questions that deserve deeply profound answers. In regards to the second question, I will also answer two additional questions at the same time: “Where did we come from?” and “Why are we here?” Look forward to it. There is alot of misinformation about God, much of which is being spread by people with good intentions.
…Man, oh man.
That first question…I am easily going to spend ALOT of time on. God has been misrepresented and distorted so much, it’s no wonder more and more people scoff at the very idea one exists. All you need to do is read the Bible. God is more than capable of speaking for himself. He doesn’t need someone to do it for him. Least of all, me. Before we can get to the other 3 big questions, we first need to address the first one. So, yeah.
Look forward to it. Feel free to ask questions. I will do my best to answer them.
