Series: 1 Thessalonians (2013)
Duration: 1 hr 5 mins 24 secs
When was the worst time in human history? Listen to this lesson to learn that it hasn’t happened yet. Called by many names such as the Tribulation, Daniel’s 70th week, and the Hour of testing, it refers to seven years that will be horrible beyond our worst imagination. Will believers have to go through this? See how the writer of this passage selected words that mean that those who have trusted in Christ as their Savior will be taken out or raptured before that time begins. This appearing of the Lord in the clouds could happen at any moment. As believers we should be in a constant spirit of anticipation for that glorious event.

Series: 2014 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference
Duration: 1 hr 24 mins 39 secs
Dispensationalism is a system of theology (not a hermeneutical approach) that believes the Bible teaches God’s single plan for history is accomplished through Israel and the church for the purpose of His glorification. This theology arises from a consistent use of the grammatical-historical hermeneutic, also known as literal interpretation. While salvation of mankind is of extreme importance, it is accomplished within the broader purpose of the glorification of God, which is demonstrated through the various administrations of dispensational arrangements of history and also encompasses the angelic realm. Jesus Christ is the hero of history by leaving heaven and humbling Himself as a Man, winning the victory at the cross, rising from the dead, ascending to heaven, taking His bride at the Rapture, returning triumphantly at the Second Coming, and reigning for a thousand years from Jerusalem. Traditional dispensationalism attempts to systematize biblical teaching for the purpose of glorifying God through Jesus Christ. History is seen as a progression of ages in which God tests mankind, man always fails, and God judges humanity, but always provides a grace to the elect.
