Series: Preparing for What's Ahead (Part 1) - There have been many turbulent and unsettling times in history. Are we going through just another difficult period, or is there something special about this time? This series will help you better understand what is the same and what is different about our present crises. It will enable you to understand that God loves you and cares very much for you, and that God has provided you with invaluable insights into both what is unfolding and how you may live so that you can be most helpful to God, to others and to yourself.
This introductory message describes why an examination at this time of a series of certain biblical texts written in the literary form called "apocalyptic" is even more important than it was in the past. Those hearing this message and upcoming messages are invited to participate at one of three levels, with each successive level providing a greater opportunity for learning and benefit.
