Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted. —Ralph Waldo Emerson.

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.—2 Timothy 4:4–5, ESV

In Chapters 24 and 25 of Matthew, Christ Jesus reveals vital truth regarding the end time and how one needs to prepare to meet these events. These two chapters deal with Christ’s teachings concerning the end of time. While these chapters have the fall of Jerusalem in view, Christ has the last generation in mind when He returns in the Second Advent.1

Both chapters could be labeled as “signs of the end” or “the end of the Age.” According to W. F. Albright and C. S. Mann, Chapters 24–25 encompass three distinct matters:

This week’s study is about the ongoing permanence of God’s law despite human attempts to change it. A special focus is on the Sabbath. I remember a conversation I had a few years ago with a Protestant Christian friend and he mentioned casually that if the Sabbath was important for Christians, surely the New Testament would have more to say about it.

As a springboard for diving (or back-flipping) into this week’s lesson, I offer a train of thought I have been following. It is my train . . . but I have looked for answers within writings that I consider inspired.

This is the train:

On Sabbath, March 3, he presented it again to the Roy Branson Legacy Sabbath School (RBLSS) in Loma Linda, California.

La lección de esta semana explora cómo el concepto de “salvación” se cruza con el “tiempo del fin.”

Debo admitir que llegué a la lección del viernes sin una comprensión clara de la postura del autor sobre la relación entre los dos. Parte del problema puede ser que las lecciones de este trimestre se basan en la noción del tiempo del fin como un punto (hoy) en lugar de un período abarcador de la historia inaugurado en la primera venida de Jesús. Esta lente presuposicional colorea las conclusiones del autor a veces con matices inusuales.

This week’s lesson explores how the concept of “salvation” intersects with the “end time.”

I must admit that I got to Friday’s lesson without a clear understanding of the author’s stance on the relationship between the two. Part of the problem may be that this quarter’s lessons are underpinned by the notion of a punctilliar arrival of the end time (today) rather than an overarching period of history inaugurated at the first coming of Jesus. This presuppositional lens colors the author’s conclusions at times with unusual shades.

Listen to this story:

A gentleman walked in on a Revelation Seminar I was conducting, in the small country of Cyprus where I minister. At the end we had the opportunity to interact. “Does Revelation say what will happen to Cyprus?” He asked.
