Throughout the ages, various celestial and non-celestial phenomena have featured images portraying the nearness of the "end of days" or, in the New Testament, the Parousia-which means the appearance of the second coming of Jesus. Many of these images and concepts are often misunderstood or misapplied. A primary purpose of this book is to correct the errant concepts believed to be true by many people because incorrect doctrine and teaching can have disastrous results. Many people today believe we are living in tumultuous times. However, to set or fix a precise date for the return of Jesus is unbiblical.
This book will present a completely different view than what is commonly believed about the end times. By blending the concepts of many schools of thought and outright challenging others, the goal of this book is to help people understand the variety of views on the topic. In short, this book should be read first and then compared with what others are teaching and saying.
