truth on end times

Bible study on end times and all things "end of world" generates a tremendous amount of air time and page space.  Search under the category of "end times" on Billy Graham's site and you will get over 230 articles.

"End times" shares company with words like "signs" and  "mystery" and "apocalypse".  It's possible the human mind's fascination with solving mysteries and knowing "things hidden" is at work here.  At the very least we see imagination running wild.  But what if all the hype was just that - hype?

Maybe the greatest and most direct way of how Scripture interprets Scripture is the New Testament writers' interpretation of the Old Testament prophets' prophecies.

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.

In a previous time God spoke to man through the prophets, but now (“these last days”) He has spoken through His son, Jesus Christ. Additionally, God appointed Him heir of all things and through Him created the world.

Opening to the letter of Hebrews, written to Jews that had believed and obeyed the gospel.  The writer is beginning his argument and evidence for why everything is better in Jesus by pointing to the prophets (and angels) that had, in times past, delivered God’s message.
