ByEdward Rice

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Volume 11 Eschatology is the study of last things. The Bible says “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.” (Revelation 1:7). Their is no greater testimony of intimate friendship than one revealing all their future plans and aspirations to their friend. Jesus said it this way, “Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you” (John 15:15). The Lord Jesus Christ materialized this intimacy in the Revelation of Jesus Christ, and only those believers on such an intimate basis with Christ can read its pages with an ear to hear. Consequentially, what one grasps in the study of eschatology is a good indicator of their standing in the intimacy of the Lord Jesus Christ. We're in the last of the last days and there are three essential concepts to understanding the doctrine of last things. First there is coming a kingdom age where Christ will fulfill the promises made to the nation of Israel. “And so all Israel shall be saved ...” (Rom.11:26). The disciples with the risen Christ asked, “Wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? …” (Acts.1:6-7). But it will happen! Secondly know, “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass”, … records, “the things which shall be hereafter” (Rev.1:1,19). And third know the hereafter comes after this dispensation of grace, the church age, closes. “Dispensation” and “stewardship” come from the same Greek word. Jesus gives multiple stewardship parables, and then Paul uses that same stewardship principle describing this dispensation. (Eph.3:2-6). The church age must end before the dispensation of the fullness of times (Eph.1:10) Volume 12 Epilogue is the Systematic Theology for the 21st Century's epilogue. This volume contains the introductions and/or conclusions and table of contents for eleven previous volumes of “A Systematic Theology for the 21st Century” A Christian, being one who has individually confessed and accepted the atoning blood of Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, for their saving, has a quickened, corrected, and personal relationship with the LORD God and Creator. They also have a charge from him that they carefully develop a theology.
