I've been wanting to write you ever since the fall conference. It was so good, and so encouraging. I was especially blessed by the turnout, as I'm sure you and your team were, too. Thank you for feeding the eschaologically hungry through your conferences and radio programs, as too many of us are not fed through home church pulpits, as you know.

I also wanted you to know that I brought my 14-year-old daughter with me, and a friend of mine brought his two teenagers, too. All three teens found the conference to be very interesting, and especially liked Amir.  Several people came up to us saying how wonderful it was that young people were at the conference.

One of the more frequent comments received by Olive Tree Ministries is that churches will not address the important issues surrounding eschatology or Bible prophecy. With that in mind, we designed a twelve chapter study guide for use in small groups of remnant believers. These study guides allow for a learning opportunity, but also for discussion.

Many churches have dropped the ball when it comes to end-time issues. Some pastors don't feel qualified to tackle it. Others don't want to deal with the controversy surrounding eschatology and fear losing members and even funds. Some churches feel the topic is irrelevant. After all, people have felt the Lord's return has been imminent for decades yet nothing happens. 

If headlines are jumping out at you but you are wondering what they really mean when placed alongside a Bible, this is for you.  Consider starting a summer group. You can finish the study in twelve weeks.

Here are the twelve chapter titles:

1)   Can We Trust the Bible to Tell Us the Truth?

2)   The Story Begins

3)   Israel: The Permanence of the Promise

4)   Daniel 9: A Careful Counting of the Years

5)   The Gap in the Prophecy

6)   Matthew 24: What Jesus Says About Prophecy

7)   Vanished Without a Trace: The Rapture

8)   Daniel 11 and Revelation 13: The Antichrist

9)   Revelation 6: The Four Horsemen of the

10) Jesus Second Coming

11) The Millennium, the Judgments, and When 
      Forever Begins

12) How Then Shall We Live?

A gentleman named Bernie bought the study guide and writes, "When I saw the new Bible study was available, I decided to check it out. The day it arrived, I sat down and read it cover to cover. I was curious how this study would handle eschatology.

"Because of all the dreadful things happening in the world today, I have felt frightened about the future. However, to my great surprise, when I was done reading the material, I felt great comfort."

Bernie continues, "Yes, bad times are coming, but we have a glorious God who will guide us through the hard times as we stand with brothers and sisters in Christ and look forward to our destiny with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ."

He concludes, "Thank you for providing hope!"

Whether you are new to the Christian faith or wanting to go deeper, a small group environment is a perfect setting for study and conversation. Don't be intimidated by eschatology! 

Discussion questions in this study guide are intended to elicit conversation, grapple with issues, challenge thinking, and lead you to know Jesus Christ in a deeper, life-changing way.

God may be calling you to get out this vital information to your neighborhood, church, place of employment, or family.

Help spread the good news amidst very dark headlines today. The King is coming, perhaps today.  If your church is silent, then you spread the good news. There is a crown for all of those who long for His appearing (II Timothy 4:8).
