When and Where?
From March 26 to May 7, the Christadelphians of Santa Fe Springs invite you to participate in this free Bible seminar. This free seminar will be held at our place of worship.
Who Is This Seminar For?
This seminar is designed for Bible students of all backgrounds. Whether you have been studying the Bible all your life or are a new reader, this seminar will help you to see for yourself what the Bible really teaches.
Soon, this earth will be ruled over by Jesus Christ. The world as we know it will be forever changed. He will rule in peace, equity and justice. He will correct the looming environmental and political problems. There will no longer be religious confusion in the earth. He will reward those who are his faithful believers the gift of immortality. There is so much to look forward to. Let’s share some time around the Word as we contemplate this majestic Master Plan of God.
What Will Be Covered?
Bible Prophecy is intimately connected with the major teachings of the Bible – they do not stand alone. Prophecies in the Bible were provided to warn and prepare believers about the closeness of major events and to give encouragement. Most prophecies center around Jesus Christ and his return to the earth. So, prophecy provides us with details of HOW and WHEN God will bring about His Plan with the earth.
This is important because all too often Christians fail to understand the critical connections between prophecy and the main teachings of the Bible. God’s “Master Plan” calls for man to be redeemed on earth, for a world that will eventually be filled with righteousness and immortal men and women. Prophecy provides us with the needed details of how this will happen.
We are told about Jesus returning to establish a worldwide, everlasting Kingdom. But this is a teaching that connects to promises made to King David in 2 Samuel 7. The inheritance of the earth and not the heavens is connected to the promises extended to Abraham in Genesis 13 and 22.
The Seminar’s Approach to Prophecy:
To understand Bible Prophecy, we must also understand WHAT and WHY. In these seven classes, we will provide a Bible-based overview of God’s Master Plan with the earth. We will look at how God extended critical promises in the Garden of Eden, to Abraham and King David. We’ll look at the miracle of Israel and how their current positioning is a sign to Bible believers that we are living in the Last Days. We will take a look at the prophecies of Jesus Christ, to include the Revelation.
We will take a close look at antichrist and dispel many of the myths that have been recently taught. By the conclusion of the seminar, you will have a strong “platform” of Bible knowledge and prophecies will fit appropriately on that platform.
Why Learn About Prophecy?
The world is changing rapidly and almost all the pieces are in place that were prophesied for the Last Days. The movements in the Middle East, the squaring off of the superpowers over strategy regarding Syria, Iran, Israel – these are all spoken of by the prophets. We live in an age that was highly relevant to the prophetic messages. We can either ignore them, be frightened by them, or take note that Jesus Christ will soon return.
