Eschatology

This chapter examines the eschatology of the Catholic Apostolic Church. It describes the church's Great Testimony, apostolic writings, and liturgical worship. It suggests that Catholic Apostolic eschatology presented a comprehensive and coherent prophetic view of the whole course of future events from the contemporary scene to the final presentation of the Kingdom by Christ to the Father. Though it may be considered a millenarian, it was also pre-millennialist and pre-tribulationist.
