So what does the Bible actually say about the end times that lead to the return of Jesus Christ? The differing ideas that divide believers into four major points-of-view are examined in the Four Views of the End Times pamphlet. This bestseller tackles Pre- and Post-millennialism, as well as Historic Premillennialism and Amillennialism in 12 panels of objective information. For each view, the full-color pamphlet includes:

  • A definition of the position with supporting Scriptures
  • A time line of the view’s popularity
  • A sampling of Christian leaders supporting that view

The events leading up to the return of Jesus Christ are controversial, and many Christians identify with one of four positions: Dispensational Premillennialism, Historic Premillennialism, Amillennialism, or Postmillennialism. The Four Views of the End Times pamphlet makes the viewpoints and their biblical support easy to understand. Packed with information regarding what Jesus and Paul taught about the end times, the pamphlet also includes a list of important terms and their definitions, such as:

  • Church
  • Eschatology
  • Rapture
  • The Great Tribulation
  • Preterism

Top Highlights

“In amillennialism, the millennium is the spiritual reign of Jesus in the hearts of his followers” (source)

“Historical premillennialism is the belief that Christians will remain on the earth during the great tribulation. The tribulation will purify the churches by rooting out false believers, and the second coming of Christ will precede the millennium. Historical premillennialism believes that the church has replaced the nation of Israel as God’s covenant people. Also known as ‘covenant premillennialism,’” (source)

“Most references to ‘Israel’ in Revelation refer symbolically to the church” (source)

“treats a thousand-year millennium as a literal future event.” (source)

“one must interpret the Bible literally unless the context provides good reason to do otherwise” (source)
