In a world shrouded with lies and media messages of cultural demise and world doom, what is missing is a legitimate and biblical hope of a progressively blessed world in which the Kingdom of God is being realized here and now. Drawing from sacred scripture, church teachings, historical theology, and tradition, Jerry Tritle provides a biblically rational, orthodox, and optimistic body of divinity regarding the last days and the coming of Christ's Kingdom as it affected and affects life on earth as we know it going forward. Using helpful and easy-to-understand charts, Tritle concisely walks the reader through redemptive history to show the development of the Kingdom of God and how it has come and continues to come on earth as it is in heaven.
Tritle confronts the secular and religious alarmists by addressing the threshold-ism of impending world doom, as well as escapism and pessimism regarding the success of the Church's gospel message that are associated with such teachings. On the contrary, our futures are filled with great hope based on the Word of God itself. This is good news for both Christians and non-Christians alike. Tritle specifically addresses questions concerning the last days, the rapture, the Antichrist, the mark of the beast, as well as summarizing the Revelation of Jesus Christ, the Epistle to the Hebrews, and wisdom literature to argue for the reality of our living in and enjoying the inaugurated New Heavens and New Earth, and the New Jerusalem, the Church.
