Bible Prophecy

A Biblical and historical explanation of Bible prophecy with discussion afterward. We are living just before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to the Earth. We have approximately 1,000 prophecies about Jesus' Second Coming, yet the scriptures tell us that most people will miss it. This will happen because people do not know the prophecies. This Understanding the Endtime series was designed to explain the prophecies of the end time in easy-to-understand terms. After viewing Understanding the Endtime no one should miss the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
