The Coming Day of the Lord Seminar

Understanding the Prophecies About the Coming of Jesus

The prophecy of the end times has been a confusing subject to most Christians. Yet this should not be so. God is not a God of confusion, and the reason that there is so much confusion among believers is that many teachers have brought in pre-conceived ideas and biases. This seminar is built around a study of the book of the same title.

The seminar is presented in five parts:

  • Foundations: This section lays the groundwork--historically and scripturally--for the study of the prophetic literature of the end times. Topics include:
    • Prophecy and the future
    • The "Day of the Lord" in the Old and New Testaments
    • Historical doctrinal views on the return of Jesus
    • The principles of literal interpretation of prophetic Scripture
    • "A Cosmic Drama"-Revelation chapter 12
    • The Seventy Weeks Prophecy in Daniel chapter 9
  • The Timetable: The approach that is taken here is to study each of the four primary prophetic passages:
    • The revelation given to Daniel recorded in Daniel 9:26-27; 11:23-12:13;
    • Jesus' teaching to the disciples in Matthew 24 and 25;
    • Paul's teaching in I Thessalonians 4 and II Thessalonians 2;
    • Jesus' revelation to John in Revelation 5 and 6; the first six seals
    Each of these four passages is considered on its own without reference to the others, and then the four are combined and compared to get an overall picture in a session entitled Putting It All Together.
  • The Antichrist: This section looks at the characteristics of the one Paul calls "the man of lawlessness" and John sees as the beast with seven heads and ten horns in Revelation. It looks at possible clues as to his identity, how he operates, and his empire. Within this section we look at:
    • The Beast in Revelation
    • The Beast's identity: Identifying the Ten Nations
    • His objectives
    • The Second Beast of Revelation 13
    • The rise of the Antichrist
    • The fall of the Antichrist
  • The Day of the Lord: The day of the Lord is that prophesied time when Jesus will come and bring judgment on the world and His enemies.
    • The seventh seal
    • The first six trumpets of God's judgement
    • An interlude-Revelation 10:1-11:15
    • The redemption of Israel
    • The "Mystery of God"
    • The seventh trumpet: the seven bowls of God's wrath
    • Jesus returns to earth in victory
    • A period of restoration
    • The Millennial Kingdom
  • Discerning the Times: This section seeks to get some insight into where we stand in God's plan and answer some questions: Is Israel the fulfillment of scripture? How close are we?
