End Times Resources – all that we used to study this topic

by purelytwins

We didn’t realize the end times, end of the world talk had so many different views until we studied Matthew 24. It took us on a 3 week + journey of studying some of the end time views.

We keep learning more and we stay open to all the sides, so we thought we would share all that we have previously used to study and will update it with more as we continue to learn.

So below you will first see what we used when we first studied end times. Then all the new resources we used when we studied Mark, and then at the bottom resources we haven’t read or watched yet but one day plan too.

Like we said, the first time we studied the end times was when we studied Matthew, chapters 24-25 in our Bible studies – below are the first round of resources we used to study it in 2021.

But to be honest it all becomes overwhelming with all the different names and views on it, and even within some of the views there is differences on what people believe.

Eschatology is the study of what the Bible says is going to happen in the end times. We personally feel this is an important area to study and know all the views on end times, but NOT something to fight over.

Overall everyone believes Christ will return – the how and other details are viewed differently.

We share this to remind you that no matter what you believe about the end times, we love you and respect your view. We are not claiming to know everything or that we are right. We just find this so interesting as we didn’t grow up hearing much about it, besides all we knew Christ would return.

We try our best in our studies to stick to what the Bible says and how the Jews in the 1st century would of understood it. We also try not to get stuck in way of thinking of it, but keep open to all end time views. We know many won’t agree with us and that is okay.

We do believe God wants us to understand what He said and He wants us to be ready for his return.

Also please note just because something is listed here doesn’t mean we 100% with the person or site. We simple are sharing any resource we came across. We are doing our best to get all sides of this topic and of course we continue to pray to God for wisdom and discernment.

Views of eschatology:

Dispensationalism premillennialism (main view is the rapture)

Amillenialism

Post millennialism

Historic premillennialism

4 views of the end times

We are open to all the end times views. We don’t claim to be any of them, although some do make more sense to us that others.

Each one has things we agree with and things we aren’t sure about.

We are still learning, this will be a long journey.

So don’t think we have the answer, but just want you to think more about all sides.

Be open to hearing all sides.

We believe that Christ could return at any moment and we have been in the end times since Christ ascended over 2000 years ago.

Some things have been fulfilled and others to come. We do feel a lot has been fulfilled as way to show the truth of the Bible, that what it says is true! It is just more evidence of God.

We are living in the already but not yet.

Okay now to the resources we used last year when studying the end times for the first time through our Matthew study.

*things not mentioned below are from all the pastors we listened to while reading and studying Matthew – you can see all who we used here – as they too shared about Matthew 24 and end timesYou can see all the resources we used to study Matthew here

Post-tribulation view:

FAI STUDIOS (They also have an App which have videos that are not on their youtube that we watched as well) Dalton Thomas, here are the videos we watched (as He has other videos that we did not watch):
Understanding the Rise of the Antichrist in the Years Before the Tribulation Begins

We Will be Radiant and Ready, Not Raptured and Removed

8 Reasons Matthew 24 Was Not Fulfilled in 70AD 

4 Reasons We Don’t Believe in a Pretribulation Rapture—

4 Reasons Why “No One Knows The Day or the Hour” Doesn’t Mean 

Dalton (and we believe his team at FAI) was the only person we could find during that time that had this view. We liked his views on this better than the pre-trib views.

Pre-tribulation view:

This is the end times view that had the most pastors here in America speaking about it.

Allen Parr, the videos we watched of his:

Should Christians Believe in a Pre-Tribulation Rapture?

What is the Millennial Reign of Christ 

When EXACTLY is Jesus Going to Return According to the Bible?

The Second Coming of Jesus Christ EXPLAINED!

ARE WE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS? 

Chuck Missler, the vidoes we watched of his:

Matthew 24 – session 17 (video)

Matthew 24 – session 18

Matthew 25 – session 19

The Rapture – Chuck Missler – Session 1

The Rapture – Chuck Missler – Session 2

We do find of all the pre-trib/rapture pastors Chuck Missler’s sermons almost had us convinced with his display of the bridegroom. We will also admit the birth pains Jesus talked about and when you look out in the world, does make us wonder.

But again every generation has thought they were in the end times. This has been a debate over the years.

Others that have a rapture view – Dispensationalism

We know there are a lot more books, videos and articles on this topic as you will see below, our list keeps growing.

We all agree Christ will return and make all things new.

The more we study this and read through the Bible we are starting to see the Kingdom of God is reigning now and we are called to participate.

Jesus brought the kingdom (even though he has always been king, as he is the creator of all things, he is God) and he will return and the kingdom will be made perfect.

God is renewing is creation.

*One more resource:
We came across a new pastor teaching Matthew – we watched his video after we filmed our Matthew Bible studies. We can see his approach (as others had the same conclusion) that Jesus was talking about the destruction in 70 AD and a future day as well.

Again, we are open to all the end times views – feel we are to learn from one another, not trying to prove your wrong and were right. We feel this is an area that has had different views since the early church.

We do have strong views toward some views more than others.

We would say that every day that passes we are closer to Jesus returning.

We don’t want to label us or try to fit into one of these views.

We believe some has been fulfilled and some things are to come.

Well that is what we have so far on studying end times – Bible prophecy – Eschatology
