                                    reflections on theology and life

THEOLOGY > Future > The End of the Age > The Blessed Hope   


Biblical eschatology affirms that history is moving toward a conclusion, which incorporates an awful time of tribulation, the return of Christ, a judgment in which believers and unbelievers will be separated, and finally the supernatural appearance of a new heaven and a new earth. Crucial to all of this is the return of Christ, whose coming will initiate the conclusion of history and the beginning of eternity.

To Titus the apostle Paul states that believers are “looking for the blessed hope” (Tit. 2:13), the hope that continually occupies their reflection as they long for the second coming of their Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Without His return there is no hope, there is no future. But with His return the believer will experience vindication and the realization of his eternal salvation.  

Consideration will be given to the following topics:

        Promise and Prediction


        Looking and Waiting

        Question of Imminency

        After the Tribulation
