Horses and dragons and snakes.
Not to mention an extravagantly dressed whore sitting on and riding a beast. More than half of humanity dead by the direct judgmental wrath of God. And nowadays all sorts of folk are claiming that various lunar and solar eclipses they’ve seen of late are harbingers of coming doom. Not to mention self-proclaimed Bible teachers and pseudo-scholars who have been selling thousands of books in which they describe how the Zodiac (at least, the Zodiac with a Hebrew language twist…) fits into God’s End of Days agenda and is predicted in chapter twelve of the book of Revelation. Then there’s that enigmatic Mark of the Beast. Just what does that pesky number 666 mean, after all?
Yes, the end of the world can be a bit hard to understand for the average mortal human being. This is especially true given the lack of serious expositional biblical teaching that’s characterized far too many churches throughout the United States at the present time. Adding to all of the confusion is an absolute cacophony of multiple “Bible prophecy” writers who are promulgating all sorts of fear mongering op-ed pieces masquerading as Internet blogs and news stories.
Maybe you’re one of those folks who just don’t get it when it comes to studying Bible prophecy. Maybe you’re downright confused when it comes to studying what the Bible has to say about the future and how the end of the world is described in astonishing, frightening detail. But it’s written in code. Symbolic code. Hard to understand code. Are you looking for answers?
ISV Foundation Executive Director Dr. William Welty has provided A Moron’s Guide to the End of the World, where he explains what the End of Days is all about in plain, simple language that anyone can understand, but with a depth of scholarship that just may astonish you.
By the time you’ve finished reading A Moron’s Guide to the End of the World, you’ll even understand what those horses and dragons and snakes are all about.
