VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, THIS GENERATION (the generation that sees Israel’s rebirth) SHALL NOT PASS AWAY, TILL ALL BE FULFILLED–ref Mt ; Mk .Is there an event that you cannot know the day and hour of? It is heaven and earth passing away (an event that takes place more than 1000 years in the future)—of that event, you cannot know the day and hour, no not the angels of heaven–Mt ,36.
The Bible warns “YOU” to be ready‐Mt , but indicates that only the “FEW” that obey God′s Word shall be taken. If anyone could prove the Bible was not true, it would probably make the headlines of nearly every major media outlet in the world. Ye hypocrites, ye can discern (or understand) the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern (or understand) this time?
It is written: KNOWING THIS FIRST, THAT NO PROPHECY OF THE SCRIPTURE IS OF ANY PRIVATE INTERPRETATION.
FOR THE PROPHECY CAME NOT IN OLD TIME BY THE WILL OF MAN: BUT HOLY MEN OF GOD SPAKE AS THEY WERE MOVED BY THE HOLY GHOST–2 Pe ,21. Some may say no one can know and understand the times we are in. Lk –32–SO LIKEWISE YE, WHEN “YE SEE” THESE THINGS COME TO PASS, “KNOW” YE THAT THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NIGH AT HAND.
By some counts, there are over 2,000 denominations in the United States alone. We will strive to partially untangle the web of denominational history here.
Modern “Christendom” is full of the names of different people and groups spanning two millennia. We will examine denominational history in four phases for easier understanding; there are charts provided for each of the four phases. As the Preacher says, This statement especially holds true for Christianity; we will see that there are many doctrines and beliefs that continually return in different forms.
