Series Description: Wouldn’t it be nice to know what the future holds. From the menial questions like, “Should I wash my car today or will it rain this evening?” to the more important questions like, “Will my children grow up to serve the Lord?” If there’s anything certain about the future, it’s that it’s uncertain to all of everyone—except for God. He sees tomorrow like He sees today and like He sees yesterday. And while He hasn’t addressed our small questions about rain and our big questions about family, He has given us a look at the biggest of questions: what does the future hold for humanity?
The message is one of hope. God has not abandoned His people. He has made a way for us and will restore all of creation to the way it should be. That’s not to say there won’t be difficulties along the way, but God will fully restore this world to its original glory.
Why Prophecy Matters (Revelation 22:18-19): In the Bible, you’ll find countless references of prophetic words and stories. But why should we care about studying prophecies in the Bible that have or have not come to pass? In this lesson, Tony Evans covers six important reasons why prophecy in the Bible is so important.
The Key to Prophecy (Revelation 19:10): What if I told you there is a master key that unlocks all of the doors of God’s prophetic program? You may be surprised to find that you’ve already heard of it: Jesus Christ is God’s master key to prophecy. If you wish to understand God’s prophecies better, join Tony Evans as he explains how Jesus is the centerpiece, cause, content
Israel and the Church (Romans 11:25-27): It’s hard to understand the history of the world from God’s point of view if you do not understand the history of Israel. After rejecting Christ’s first coming, God turned from Israel to the church to operate His kingdom until a later time. Learn this and more as Tony Evans delves deeper into the complexities surrounding the relationship between Israel and the Gentile church.
Rapture of the Church (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18): You’ve probably read, watched or heard of the popular book series, Left Behind, that introduced many people to the realities of the biblical rapture. But to understand this event and how it will affect you, it’s also important to realize why. Join Tony Evans in this detailed look at the next event on the prophetic calendar—the return of Christ for His people.
The Judgment Seat of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:6-11): When you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, God declares you innocent in your eternal destiny with no strings attached. But what if I told you there will still be a time where you will present yourself at the judgment seat of God? Tony Evans says this isn’t to evaluate your salvation, but to evaluate whether or not you let Him work through you. Learn about the impact your actions today have on the rewards God has in store for you in heaven.
The Coming Tribulation (2 Thessalonians 2:1-12): While some people believe that all of the pain or suffering in the world today exists as a result of God’s wrath, Tony Evans says that it instead stems from the consequences of humanity’s bad choices. However, there will exist a time where God will choose to act on how much He hates sin—a time that we as Christians thankfully won’t have to experience. In this lesson, Dr. Evans takes a look at the seven-year period known as the Tribulation where the world will see how evil the devil truly is.
