End-Time Biblical Prophecy Revealed
By Thomas Taylor
I have always loved end-time things and have studied them ever since I first started studying the Bible. There is much confusion concerning end-time biblical prophecy and that is due to improper interpretation of the Scriptures. If you search the internet you will find some very extreme conspiracy theories and gross misinterpretations of Scripture by people trying to pull things out of the Bible that are not there at all. I want to present the simple basic concepts of the end-time the way that the Bible presents it without any fantastic hype and foolish suppositions. I pray that this sparks an interest in your personal Bible study and helps you to more clearly understand end-time prophecy.
As a preface to these articles, understand that we need to study end-time prophecy. However, we do not study prophecy for the same reasons that the people of the world may go to a psychic or read horoscopes. They do those things because they want to know the future to control the future. If there is a problem coming, they want to know about it to avoid it. As Christians, we should not want to know the future to avoid problems. Our desire is not to control what is about to happen but to have faith in the One who knows the future and let Him do as He chooses, even if that means going through problems instead of avoiding them. You see, because we have God, it does not matter how bad the future is for we have the answer to any problem that may come! Therefore, we should never fear what is to come. Fear is the motivation of the world; Faith is our motivation. We need to study end-time prophecy because it is the Word of God and He put it there for our edification.
Biblical prophecy is for us to be ready for the days ahead and for us to know where we are in God’s timetable. We need to properly interpret the prophetic Scriptures so we can do so. Some people have difficulty interpreting the symbols found in the Bible. When you see my interpretation of the symbols I am only making suggestions as to there proper interpretation. However, I can say with confidence how to properly interpret the biblical prophecy as a whole which is by comparing Scriptures with Scriptures. We also need to read the Bible literally. We cannot assume the Bible is always speaking symbolically unless the passage obviously lends itself to that interpretation. For example, in the book of Daniel we can obviously see that a lion, bear, and leopard did not rule the world or in Revelation a dragon is not going to literally cast stars to the earth. In fact, if the passage is symbolic, the Bible later explains the symbolic passage as such and gives us the literal meaning afterward in many cases. Please join me on this study of the End-Time as we explore what the Scriptures say but not necessarily what popular biblical prophecy taught by men may say.
