Despite the controversial nature of this particular episode (a discussion of the preterist view of end-times biblical prophecy) this show has become one of my most popular. Whether it’s because of the topic itself or because of the idea the endtimes already happened, I’m not sure. I’ve received some slight criticism for this show because of the fact I highlighted a different view. But I counter with the fact that open dialogue about issues like this is good, not bad. So, if you missed it the first time, you can listen to it again.
Many of us have aligned ourselves to the idea that the Great Tribulation is a futuristic event. Prophecy enthusiasts often use the current events as markers for the Great Tribulation to occur. Who hasn’t seen the Left Behind movies and books? Who hasn’t followed closely the wars and the rumors of wars? Who isn’t aware of the dispensation-list who watch the events happening in Israel for the awakening of God’s people in the great battle to come? Who hasn’t speculated of where the AntiChrist will come from?
Yet, on today’s show, we’re going to explore a viewpoint that states the Great Tribulation has already happened. That the AntiChrist was revealed, and that the Christian persecution of the past was the Great Tribulation. Through the vehicle of my fiction, my guest, Brian Godawa explores this topic with depth and sensitivity, and towards the end of the show, brings it all together.
