The primary source...it is becoming a hidden topic today. Many of them are even feared in our errant politically correct society. But my wife and I are teaching our children their importance. It is very important to go to the original documentation of whatever idea, theory, or truth you are considering.
I would not want my children to use our modern judges' interpretations to decide what our founding fathers intended in the Constitution and Declaration of Independence. We are teaching them to first become very familiar with the documents themselves and then study the authors of those documents.
Read what the authors wrote (letters, books, etc.) before you read books about the authors. This is how one would form an accurate understanding of what they intended in these foundational writings.

I encourage you to approach the End Times in the same manner. Go to the original source first. In this case, the Bible (not this site!). The author you want to become familiar with is the Author of the universe. Let's get to know Him and His writings in order to understand what was intended for the last days.
Allow your opinions to rest by the wayside for a few moments. My goal is to help you derive your conclusions concerning all the end times topics from the Scriptures rather than popular books and movies.
I will place all the relevant Scriptures right on the page for you to plunge into them. I'll be here as a friend, guide and sounding board.
Feel free to disagree with any of my conclusions. This site and my resources are not about "us" against "them". I have significant disagreements with numerous end times theories and timelines out there, but as long as we are trusting Christ alone for salvation then we are brothers and sisters in Christ. We may adamantly disagree, but love covers a multitude of sins:)
When you do have questions or comments I encourage you to send them to me, and I can address them in an e-zine, or a pod cast. I enjoy dialoguing on this topic immensely, but be prepared for me to take you to the end times primary source and not spout out another man-made theory.
