And Then the End Will Come provides a front-line account of the effort to finish Jesus' Great Commission; explains Jesus' prophecy linking the completion of that task to his return; and explores nine other Biblical clues that reveal his return is imminent.
The global church is on the final lap of its 2000-year marathon to fulfill Jesus' command to "make disciples of every nation." In just the next few years, the task will be complete.
In And Then the End Will Come, Doug Cobb, founder of The Finishing Fund, provides a front-line account of the effort to finish Jesus' Great Commission. Doug shows how Jesus explicitly linked his return to the completion of that task. He also explores nine other Biblical clues that point to the soon return of Christ, including the regathering of Israel, the presence of an "abomination that causes desolation" on the Temple Mount, the approaching 2000-year anniversary of the resurrection of Christ, and the declining condition of our culture.
Doug makes the case that the return of Christ is at hand-perhaps in the next year or two, perhaps a little later, but by likely very soon. And he offers practical instruction about what it means to "live holy and godly" lives as we look for the coming of our Lord and King.
If you're feeling disheartened and discouraged about the wickedness and craziness you see in the word today, And Then the End Will Come will offer you hope for better things to come. This book declares things so great that the Bible says no one can even imagine how awesome they will be.
