==== ====The Truth About The Last Days, Antichrist, The Rapture, More.http://www.teachingfaith.com/content.cfm?id=304==== ===="Tell us about the last days of Jesus Christ," was the inquiry put forth to the aged man, whostroked his beard with his head bowed.Slowly raising his head, the corner of his mouth curled up slightly to reveal a bit of amusementwith the question; yet, his eyes expressed his tenderness and his genuine desire to answer thatquestion unto Gods greatest glory. He spoke slowly and deliberately, having a face like weatheredgranite and voice like gravel, "Were you referring to His last days prior to His crucifixion?"Preparing to answer affirmatively, the young man barely opened his mouth to speak when the oldman spoke again, asking, "Or did you mean His last days on earth, after His resurrection andbefore His ascension into heaven?" The surprised look on the young mans face did not hinder theold sage for a moment, as he continued, "Or, were you referring to the last days spoken of by theNew Testament apostles, meaning the days of the building of Christs church until Jesus Christreturns?"Many people consider that the last days of Jesus Christ only deals with His last days prior to Hisdeath upon a Roman cross. Yet, the Bible presents that the "last days" of Christ may refer to anumber of things, as the old man implies above. Is the old man crazy or correct? What does itmean when we refer to the last days of Christ?We will have to consider this article an introduction of sorts; a teaser, if you will, because in orderto approach the topic of "The Last Days of Christ," we must also consider these particular issues:Is Christ God? Or rather, was Jesus of Nazareth merely a man who was a good teacher? Theanswers to those questions will determine whether Jesus Christ of Nazareth is eternal deity or not.If He is eternal God, His eternal nature will certainly have implications on Christs "last" days.Are the sixty-six books of the Bible Gods inspired revelation of Himself to humanity; or is the Biblewritten by man as poetic expressions of primitive philosophies? Perhaps it is something elseentirely different. Whether or not the Bible is very truth will also determine how we interpret the lastdays of Christ.We also need to explore our own personal salvation as it pertains to Christ. If Christ came to savemen from their sins, if one has faith in Christ, he or she will have quite a different outlook from onewho has no faith in Christ at all.My prayer is, as we dig into these particular issues, that the truth of Christ will be revealed, and asit is, we may grow in grace and be strengthened in faith for Gods greatest glory.
