In der globalisierten Welt geht die Angst vor einem Verlust der kulturellen Identität um, und fast überall formieren sich die selbsterklärten Retter: In Frankreich gibt Marine Le Pen vor, sie »im Namen des Volkes« zu verteidigen, die AfD fordert in ihrem Grundsatzprogramm »deutsche Leitkultur statt Multikulturalismus«, und die Identitäre Bewegung ruft gleich in mehreren Ländern mit aggressiven Aktionen zur ihrer Bewahrung auf. Doch gibt es überhaupt so etwas wie eine kulturelle Identität? In seinem neuen Buch zeigt François Jullien, dass dieser Glaube eine Illusion ist. Das Wesen der Kultur, so Jullien, ist die Veränderung. Er plädiert dafür, Bräuche, Traditionen oder eine gemeinsame Sprache als Ressourcen zu begreifen, die prinzipiell allen zur Verfügung stehen.
Did you know that we are living in the end times? The Bible teaches that Christians, right now, are living in the end times, the last days. The Old Testament saints believed that. Jesus taught the Kingdom of Heaven was at hand. The Apostles taught that we live in the last days. The Church of Jesus Christ has always believed that they live in the end times. Even now, the Church eagerly awaits the final consummation of the ages, when Christ will return with a shout, the voice of the archangel and the trumpet call of God. In that moment we shall be changed from corruptible to incorruptible. But what about right now? In light of the biblical fact that we are living in the end times, how should we live every day? The purpose of this book is to explain how Christians should live each day as if it were their final days while living in the end times. This means that we ought to give particualr attention to Bible reading, biblical mediation, church attendance, preaching of the word, missions and prayer.

Zizek analyzes the end of the world at the hands of the “four riders of the apocalypse.” The underlying premise of the book is a simple one: the global capitalist system is approaching an apocalyptic zero-point. Its four riders of the apocalypse are the ecological crisis, the consequences of the biogenetic revolution, the imbalances within the system itself (problems with intellectual property, the forthcoming struggle for raw materials, food and water), and the explosions of social divisions and exclusions. Society’s first reaction is ideological denial, then explosions of anger at the injustices of the new world order, attempts at bargaining, and when this fails, depression and withdrawal set in. Finally, after passing through this zero-point we no longer perceive it as a threat, but as the chance for a new beginning. or, as Mao Zedong might have put it, “There is great disorder under heaven, the situation is excellent.” Žižek traces out in detail these five stances, makes a plea for a return to the Marxian critique of political economy, and sniffs out the first signs of a budding communist culture in all its diverse forms—in utopias that range from Kafka’s community of mice to the collective of freak outcasts in the TV series Heroes.
This study of 1 and 2 Peter and Jude helps believers deepen their faith and guard against false teachings. Peter and Jude exhort us to live courageously for Christ in a world that seeks to destroy the gospel's truth.
The world is on an inexorable path toward the apocalypse, currently exhibiting many of the Bible’s prophesied signs of the end times. When the Jews regained nationhood in May 1948, the countdown began toward the promised return of the Messiah. In Fifty Signs of the End Times, compelling new information is shared demonstrating that the end-time clock is nearing midnight, including: • How the alignment of the nations soon to come against Israel is exactly as prophesied in the Bible. • The many ways that God has honored His promise to richly bless Israel in the latter days – including the discovery of new energy sources. • Recent and detailed information concerning the coming Tribulation Temple. • Amazing accounts demonstrating how God is pouring out His Spirit in these latter days. • How God has miraculously protected Israel in its recent wars. • Revealing how twelve of Christ’s prophecies in His Olivet Discourse have come true in our time. Dr. David Nichols explains these intriguing signs, and dozens more, in meticulous detail. We are fast approaching Armageddon. However, this need not cause alarm. God has provided an escape. “I have well over fifty prophecy volumes in my library and can honestly say that none display more of the detailed and accurate research as seen in this book. Every prophecy student worth his salt needs to read it!” ---Dr. H.L. Willmington, Founder and Dean, Liberty Home Bible Institute “David Nichols has written an excellent study on the signs of the end times. His biblical knowledge, medical and scientific perspective, and analysis of the culture make this an incredible study. Don’t miss it.” ---Dr. Ed Hindson, Asst. Chancellor, Liberty University; Host of “The King is Coming”

Are world conditions such that these prophecies could be fulfilled in our day?

Inside this Bible Study Aid ebook: "But we should remember that Jesus made it clear that no one could know the exact time of His return: "… Of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only" (Matthew 24:36)." "Some think the subject of the end time in the Bible is mainly confined to the New Testament. But beginning in Genesis, the first book of the Bible, the Scriptures look beyond our present evil age to the time of the establishing of God's Kingdom. Old Testament scriptures have much to say about events that take place during the end of this age and the following "world to come."" "When Scripture mentions "the time of the end" or "the end of the age," it is referring to the coming end of the present evil age. This age—in reality the age of Satan—will draw to an end, replaced by the age of God's rule over and guidance of all of humanity." "Revelation is a book written to reveal the future, and Jesus Christ is the One who does the revealing...Here is the theme of Revelation—the time of the end of the age and the return of Jesus Christ to establish God's Kingdom on earth." "How should we view prophecy? Can it provide spiritual benefits? The apostle Peter mentioned that prophecy should serve to strengthen our hope and faith in the future (2 Peter 1:19)."
