Do you want to know what Jesus really said about the End of the Age?

What Does the Bible Really Say about the End Times?

There are so many Christians teaching outrageous speculation about End Times Bible prophecy these days. It’s enough to frustrate the serious Bible student.   

What if you found out most of it is simply mistaken?   

What if you found out that everything that modern prophecy pundits are looking for - the Rapture, the Tribulation, the Antichrist, The Beast - was not what they told you it was, but something different?   

What Jesus Himself Said About the End of the Age

Here are a few of the things you’ll be astounded to learn from this audiobook:    

  • You’ll hear Godawa’s own personal journey in changing his understanding of the End Times.
  • You’ll find out how hyperliteralism corrupts Bible Prophecy interpretation.
  • Godawa focuses on Jesus’ own predictions about the End of the Age in Matthew 24.
  • You’ll discover the dirty little secret behind the so-called Rapture.
  • The truth about the Last Days. It’s not what they told you.
  • Just what is the Great Tribulation and when did it happen?
  • What the heck are those cosmic catastrophes in the heavens?
  • The shocking truth about Antichrist and the Abomination of Desolation
  • You’ll be amazed when you see how the coming of Christ on the clouds has been completely misunderstood by well-meaning but misinformed prophecy pundits.

This is not newspaper exegesis, but intense Bible study. This audiobook is guaranteed to inspire your love for God’s Word and His promises to His people.

Apocrypha as part of the Bible, really

When I heard references to the Apocrypha, not part of the Bible as if it is, and other extra-biblical sources that did not harmonize with scripture I found it hard to give credibility to this work. The tone of the author was condescending to those who don't follow this worldview. That condescension was hypocritical to what the author himself projected through this message. I did find this body of work thought-provoking and there was some good truth to the interpretation of the Olivet discourse.

THIS IS THE TRUTH!!!

I hesitated to start this book because end times just isn't my thing but once I did, I couldn't and didn't put it down until I was finished. This will now become one of my most important reference books when thinking, reading, and/or teaching about the end times or the story of the NT in general. This work comes with so many wonderful paths to go down to deepen one's knowledge and understanding with highly respected scholars and authors as your tutors along the way. You will not be able to think about your present or the future the same as a citizen of the kingdom of God.

A great book I will not read again.

I suspect you may be right, simply because I have yet to go back and check every dot and tittle myself. But removing the "wrong idea" without leaving even a semblance of the right idea, was not very helpful to me. Admittedly, early Christians struggled a lot and had much tribulations, but the count of souls living today serving God and expecting his prophesies to have something to teach us also about our life, in a time when there are more Christians alive than all who came before the present era, leaves more vacuum than trust or purpose or expectation.
Of course, history will run with or without our approval. I hope Brian is right: No great tribulation ahead? No Antichrist? Just “Peace and security”, perhaps destruction will not come upon us like labor pains on a pregnant woman.

FInally a book that tells the real story!

I have been reading the bible since I was a young child. When the "Left Behind" scenarios started coming out I kept trying to figure out "where do they get this stuff?" It is not what my bible says. I would go to series at churches where the preachers were teaching line by line and as they taught, I would have to roll my eyes and think, but that is not what that verse says. I listened to many teachers on the radio with same result, no one could really back up what they were teaching. I also tried to read some books backing up the view,, but again they were full of rubbish, things like inserting 1000 years in the middle of a verse of scripture. Now finally here is a view that DOES come from the bible and not just making up preposterous jumps. If you want all the pieces to fit, this is the view for you!

Seriously?

I did not like anything. Interpreting all the passages in the Bible relating to prophecy as having occurred before does not make any sense. But considering that writer specializes in writing fiction, obviously this is a work of his imagination. Everyone is entitled to his opinion but is it right to be trying to persuade others that your interpretation is indeed the only right one and everyone else is wrong? The Bible does mention false teachers whose objective is to confuse and turn people away from the truth!

OT and Olivet reveal the past - not the future.

The Old Testament is a history. It doesn't have a future fulfillment The account of Jesus in the Olivet Discourse was to predict the destruction of the temple after his death and resurrection, a few years later. With such an expansive title: End Times Bible Prophecy, it should have dealt with Revelation too. Is any of it history? If it is, how much is in the future? Both of them are important questions! That wasn't covered in this fairly lengthy book.

👍 great view

I'm starting to understand much better the way the scriptures is interpreting scripture, especially from the Israelite view!
Godawa brings more light and clarity to these texts i believe is a great book ,however this is incomplete it needs a wholelot more to be explained of Jesus's return on earth as King ,rapture and more; thanks Brian, and Lord Bless you!

Don't believe this book.

I don't believe you and it was not convincing. I believe Jesus Christ is coming soon to take us to heaven and we will always be with him. That is tjhlblessef hope and you can't take that from me.

game changer

Update: the audible book read by the author is awesome. His dramatic reading of his books adds to the story. After reading Chronicles of the Apocalype A four book series by Brian Godawa I had a lot of questions that needed answers. I purchased on Audible the book End Times Bible Prophecy: It’s Not What They Told You, and it rocked my world. I grew up in the left behind days. One of the first books I ever purchased as a teenager was late great planet earth. As an adult I spent more time preparing for the return of Jesus, instead of doing the job we were called to do as Christians. I recommend this book highly to anyone that dares to challenge what you’ve always been told. Update: at Godawa.com he has a premium online course that I am taking and it’s well worth the money.

enjoyed it

I very much enjoyed this introduction and thought-provoking book concerning the Orthodox preterist View. I plan to continue the study.

Makes sense of a difficult topic

If you could sum up End Times Bible Prophecy in three words, what would they be?

Partial-Preterist view of the 'End-Times'.

Any additional comments?

The many references to some events spoken of in Revelation and Matthew 24 etc as to be coming soon or in that generation make a lot more sense if they are referring to the destruction of the Temple and the New Covenant replacing the Old. A lot hinges on the dating of Revelation, which would have to be before the destruction of the Temple in A.D. 70.

Soon, surely can't mean 2000 years, can it? This view still leaves the 2nd Coming as future in line with the Nicene creed: 'He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.'

Great book, well worth getting for an easy to understand, alternative look at a sometimes confusing topic. I listened to it in a day and will no doubt listen to it again in the future.

Good But Not Convinced

I didn’t realise I was a Futurist until I listened to this book on Preterism. It was interesting to know of the other argument to end days.

Unfortunately it is not an biased view of the scripture and only argues one side. I felt I needed a balanced opinion on some of the points so did more research and found the author had omitted arguments about key dates and events.

Although I didn’t finish the book as I felt it was not wholly accurate it was a good listen and well narrated. I would recommend listening to it as an alternative view on end days prophecy.
