My Eschatology

Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself, just as he is pure. (1 John 3:2-3)

After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words. (1 Thess. 4:17-18)

He who testifies to these things says, "Yes, I am coming soon." Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. (Rev. 22:20)
You may have wondered what my eschatology is. I do not often speak about it. These few words summarize my anticipation: hope, purifies, encourage, "Amen. Come, Lord Jesus."

This keeps me from differing with the saints on the order of events at the end time.
Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. (Eph. 4:3)
