  • Lesson 1 - The "Parousia" of Jesus Christ
    This is the first lesson of the "Close of the Age" Series.  The "parousia", that is, the coming, the appearing of Jesus is the focal point of the consummation of the age.  Everything that the Lord has purposed in Himself is brought to completion. Our understanding of End Time events must fit into the overall process of God's intention to destroy the works of the devil and to unify all things in Christ Jesus.  The way or manner of the coming of Jesus is discussed along with the purpose of His appearing.

  • Lesson 2 - Timeline of Sequence of Events
    WARNING! 
    This is not a contemporary, traditional interpretation of end time events.   A picture of end time events are built into a timeline on a scripture by scripture basis.  The close of the age is given as an overview beginning with I Corinthians 15:23-24 with a detailed discussion of the resurrection of Jesus as the first fruits of the harvest, the first resurrection of those who are Christ's at His coming and the last resurrection to stand before the Great White Throne of God.

  • Lesson 3 - Outer Darkness and Overcomers
    WARNING! 
    This is not a contemporary, traditional interpretation of end time events.   Jesus described a place called 'outer darkness' that doesn't correspond to Hell, the Abyss, or the Lake of Fire.  This lesson discusses Jesus' meaning of  'outer darkness' and  its purpose.  The requirements and rewards of overcoming are also discussed and contrasted with the 'outer darkness' situation during the Millennium Kingdom.

  • Lesson 4 - Antichrists Among Us
    From John's day to ours, there have been and are antichrists among us. The Spirit of Antichrist is at work to bring forth THE Antichrist, the man of lawlessness, the son of perdition.  This lesson explores the Scriptures about the way that antichrists come and where they come from and the nature of the Antichrist.

    The difference between false Christs and anti christs is examined and what that means to us in the close of the age.   One of the primary marks of the close of the age is deception, particularly as it relates to the coming of Jesus and the end.  Deception in this area is designed so that those who do not love the truth will receive the lie and be deceived.

    The Antichrist is the fulfillment of man as god as promised by the Serpent in the Garden of Eden.  He is man reaching his fullest potential without God and becoming a god unto himself.

  • Lesson 6 - Matthew 24 Part 1
    Scientists who dig up skeletons and put them together need the backbone in order be able to do it, especially if it is an unknown species.  Matthew 24 is the backbone of prophetic end time understanding.  The words of Jesus are the key to all of the pieces of the end of the age prophecies.   Both Daniel and Revelation fit to the backbone of Jesus' words.  This lesson puts Matthew 24 into proper perspective from the viewpoint of the Jews.  A verse by verse exposition details how Jesus answered the two questions asked by the disciples.

  • Lesson 9 - Sheep and Goat Nations
    This lesson concludes the Close of the Age Series.  The judgment of the sheep and goat nations from Matthew chapter 25 is discussed.  By the time of this judgment all believers have been resurrected and are in their resurrection bodies; therefore, there are no born again believers in the sheep and goat nations that are being judged.  There is more than normal discussion and class interaction in this class.
