Focus on the End Times heralds the good news that Jesus is coming again! For over 30 years, Tim has been warning the church about the signs of the end times and teaching how to identify the signs surrounding the coming of Jesus.
THE BEATITUDES OF PROPHECY
Everyone wants to “be blessed” but a lot of Christians may not understand that there are special blessings for learning prophecy. When it comes to reading and studying prophecy and the book of Revelation, Jesus promised three special blessings or beatitudes found no where else in the Bible,
“ Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and keep the things which are written in it; for the time is near.”(Revelation 1:3)
Blessed are those who hear the words of prophecy.
Blessed are those who read the words of prophecy.
Blessed are those who keep the words of prophecy.
Founder of FOTET Ministry
“I’m convinced that Islam is the single greatest challenge the Church will face before the return of Jesus, yet most are still either asleep or in denial.”
These blessings belong to all God’s children as many students of prophecy have experienced and they are part of Tim’s personal testimony. At age 20, God used Bible prophecy to draw Tim to salvation. Shortly after becoming a Christian, he spent 4 years in Bible College and 4 years in Seminary preparing for the ministry.
After seminary and entering the ministry, Tim began his lifelong journey of discerning Biblical prophecy and teaching how it applies to us today. It’s become his personal challenge to demonstrate the love of God through teaching prophecy while warning the church to be ready. Getting the facts straight is important but not as important as a life that glorifies the Lord,
“I charge you to keep this command without spot or blame until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which God will bring about in his own time—God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever. Amen.”
1 Thess. 6:14-16
STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe the Trinity exists in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three Persons are one God, having precisely the same nature, attributes and perfection.
We believe there is only one true and living God. He is our creator and the One to whom all praise and glory are given. He is perfect in all ways and in all things. Through God, all things are possible.
The Lord Jesus Christ
We believe in His eternal existence as God; His incarnation and Virgin Birth, His death on the cross as the substitutionary atonement of sin; His literal bodily resurrection from the dead; His present ministry of intercession in heaven; His Personal calling up of the church in the Rapture and His future return to earth at the Second Coming.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity, convicts men of sin and regenerates, baptizes, indwells, seals and sets apart believers unto a holy life; keeps and empowers believers day by day; and is the Teacher of the word of God and the guide for daily living.
We believe in the absolute verbal inspiration of the Word of God and that both the Old and New Testaments are perfect in the original writings and are the supreme and final authority for faith and life.
We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His image, but they sinned when tempted by Satan. In union with Adam, human beings are sinners by nature and by choice, alienated from God, and under His wrath. Only through God’s saving work in Jesus Christ can we be rescued, reconciled, and redeemed.
We believe that salvation is by grace, a free gift of God apart from works. Salvation involves repentance, a turning from one’s own way to God’s way and seeking forgiveness of one’s own sin. Salvation is through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. All who receive Jesus Christ are born again and regenerated by the Holy Spirit to become the children of God. This true salvation will be manifested by a changed life. Grace is the way we are saved, the means by which we are changed, and the door that gives us eternity with Jesus.
We believe in the Pretribulational Rapture of the Church. Following the rapture will be the 7 year Tribulation. The Tribulation will culminate in the Premillennial, Second Coming of Jesus Christ to earth when Christ will reign on the throne of David in Jerusalem for 1000 years. Unbelievers will be resurrected at the end of the Millennium, and stand before God at the White Throne judgment. The New Heavens and New Earth will be the final destination of all believers.
What People Are Saying
Focus on the End Times classes opened my eyes, not only to the evil acts so widespread in this world, but to the power and richness of Biblical prophecy and God’s warnings, instructions, and promises for us today.
The fact that God’s word, the Bible, declares without error the events that are unfolding around us is evidence of His Sovereignty. His plan will prevail and we have no need to fear as we live for Him.
Tim’s teaching takes you into the prophecies of God’s Word and ties it into what is going on in the world today. He has a vast amount of knowledge of the Word of God and how to apply it to current and past historical events.Trina Kolenich
Your classes have meant so much to me. This last class was so informative, as usual, but what was even more impacting was the assurances we have in Jesus Christ, who we are as Christians and what a Savior we serve!! It is prompting me to more thoroughly study the book of Revelation more in depth. How important it is to live as though he were coming any day – and he is! – and to be aware of the direction we are headed, but the hope we have as being His children brings such peace, joy and comfort in these last days!
Thank you for your courageous and needed ministry, your tireless hours and being willing to endure many obstacles to bring this to so many. May God continue to richly bless FOTET and may it continue to grow in every way!Donna Connoly
