As it is Written
Book One: A Study of Last Things
About the Book
Does bible prophecy revolve around antichrist and Israel, or Christ and His Church? Does Jesus return to defeat Antichrist, and vast armies, or does he come in victory to defeat Death? These questions and more will be answered in this book. “As it is Written,” is a labor of love that seeks to challenge the mainstream modern views of eschatology, which is the study of the end times. In this book, readers will learn where the modern teachings came from, and learn that the modern views are less than 200 years old. This book will compile a list of all the modern teachings and then compare them to what Christ and the Apostles taught. This will show a stark difference between what the early church taught and what we teach today. The book concludes by analyzing several key passages that have been misinterpreted by modern teachers and looks back on how our forefathers understood them and sees which interpretation is more accurate to the texts.” When all is done, readers will be left with a hopeful outlook on the future and the promise of a glorious reign of Christ culminating in His victorious Second Coming. This is all done without prophecy charts, or going back to the Greek, rather it takes the simple approach of asking the question, what did Jesus say about His Second Coming, and what did his disciples teach? It turns to the bible and lets them answer this question from their own testimony. This will also reveal how these things were promised even in the Old Testament.
