The Praying Church Study Series is based on courses taught in the first semester at International House of Prayer University and is designed to impart the biblical understanding necessary for sustaining corporate and personal prayer. Our enduring hope is that this series will equip and inspire individuals and communities of believers to grow in the knowledge and love of God and to make worship and prayer the foundation of all other activity, so that together we would be the praying church to the glory of Jesus.
THE RETURN OF JESUS IS THE CLIMAX OF HUMAN HISTORY AND THE GREAT HOPE OF THE CHURCH. The generation in which He returns will be more dramatic than any other described in Scripture. Jesus has given the Church essential information to strengthen and preserve her through this season of unprecedented trouble and great glory. In this hour, the Lord is preparing a people who are familiar with the signs of His coming. They will prepare the way for His return by declaring in advance what He is about to do. More than just relaying information, they will impart love for Jesus and confidence in His leadership as they explain the wisdom of His end-time plan to others.
In this study manual, Wes Hall provides a biblical overview of the end times and explains why it is important for believers to study and understand this subject. From Jesus and the apostles we know that it is not only possible, but necessary, to recognize the generation of the Lord’s return. In light of this, it is important to grasp the significance and relevance of the end-time scriptures to our lives today. Wes gives a clear overview of the book of Revelation, unfolding critical and practical concepts for understanding the end times. When the fullness of sin and the fullness of Satan’s rage are seen on the earth, it will be the Church’s most fruitful hour of good works and devotion to Jesus.
