Eschatology and Money: A brief look at what is to come
by David Mint
Contemplating the end times as they are presented in the Bible can be daunting. Christians who accept the Bible as God's word vacillate somewhere between two extremes, either ignoring completely what is written or spending an inordinate amount of time and energy looking for signs that the prophecies are nearing fulfillment.
Naturally, there is Biblical support for both points of view. For those who ignore the coming judgment, Jesus' command not to worry in Matthew 6:24-34 provides the scriptural basis for their reaction. For those spending an inordinate amount of time looking for signs, Jesus' command to be watchful in Matthew 24:37-44 validates their approach.
This brief interpretation of what is to come, based on scriptures found in the Gospels and in the books of Daniel and Revelation, falls somewhere between the two extremes.
It is our prayer that you will find both comfort and a call to action in our interpretation of what is to come. With the proper preparations, all of the peoples of the world may eagerly await the coming of their Lord without fear and full of hope and joy.
