These Last Days: The Unfailing Promise of the Future
October 11-12, 2013
2013 Cheyenne Reformation Conference
Many American Protestant denominations and churches trace their roots to the Protestant Reformation of the 16th Century. While some of these denominations and churches invoke memories of this heritage, many evangelical churches have rejected certain Biblical truths originally confessed by the reformers. One disputed truth is what the Bible says about These Last Days.
For many Christians, these last days refer to the short period of intense activity immediately prior to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. But according to the apostles, the last days were inaugurated by the first coming of Christ and continue even today. Christians have often shunned the field of eschatology (the study of last things), surrendering end times doctrine to more popular (but less biblical) schemes. But eschatology is important! Paul describes the fulfillment of history as “our blessed hope” (Titus 2:13), a hope made real to us now through our faith.
Though all the Scriptures speak of the present and future triumph of God’s redemptive purposes in Christ, certain passages are of special importance to an understanding of biblical eschatology. The Cheyenne Reformation Conference is hosting a forum in which Dr. Cornel Venema will offer an exposition of these passages and illustrate how the Bible’s teaching regarding the future may be interpreted and applied today.
Join us this fall for a time of fellowship and Bible study as we look at this essential element of the Christian faith… “our blessed hope”.
