In this episode TruthSeekah speaks with Brian Godawa the author of the Chronicles of The Apocalypse series about the end times and Bible prophecy that has already taken place without us even knowing it. Cognitive dissonance would have us read over very key scriptures within the Bible that are very easy for anyone to understand and they already have a meaning because of that we’ve been told. This allows us to simply read over it because we feel as if we already know what it’s talking about even if it is absolutely wrong. They also cover the topic of entertainment and how it is being used to push incorrect Bible theology that is widely accepted by the majority of christendom. The prime example being the Left Behind series from the 90s by Tim LaHaye. There is this notion that everyone wants to feel important. Everyone wants to be the “People of the Book”. We hear all the time in the churches that people feel like they will not pass until they see the glorious coming of Jesus Christ. The fact is that every generation has felt this way and when we go back and read the Bible with this in mind we can see that Jesus, Paul and the disciples had an urgency about their message. Some of the things that stick out are Jesus not worrying about attending funerals, Paul telling the young men of the faith to not worry about getting married and settling down. This is because they knew the end was upon them. How did they know this? Because their master told them. Jesus goes into much detail in Matthew 24 about the end of the age and how the disciples standing there during this discussion would definetly see all of his prophecies fulfilled. When we take a glance into history we see that right after Jesus was crucified and rose again he ushered in the new covenant and essentially a new age of the dispensation of grace. But with that also came the dark parts of his prophecies. He told them that they would have a coming tribulation and if it were possible that even the very elect would be deceived. He gave his disciples key instructions on how to survive the coming disaster and where to find safety. Thus we see according to history that those who took heed of the warnings of Jesus actually fled unto the mountains when they saw the abomination of desolation upon them that Jesus spoke of. Those who didn’t were captured and tortured by the Romans when the Roman armies took over Jerusalem.
