End times expert’s new book examines crucial scriptures in readiness for the Rapture

Share :

Marc Wheway’s enlightening new book Awaiting His Return, is a great reminder for all Christians about the importance of steadfast living, all the while being positioned in a post-Christendom world.

While our societies are moving further and further away from the principles that God set out for us to live by, this likewise puts Christians under pressure to drift from the way of live the Bible has set out. A world focused on individualism, monetary gain, and essentially a world away from how God wants us to live means that Christians must keep an eye on what is to come. Becoming lukewarm and self obsessed are challenges we must all keep an eye on.

In Awaiting His Return, Dr. Marc Wheway, a dedicated researcher with a doctoral degree in eschatology from Louisiana Baptist University and Theological Seminary and a Master’s degree in International Relations from Griffith University, carefully navigates prophetic scriptures.

As you can see, he is no lightweight on the subject. Awaiting His Return invites readers to delve into the Apostle Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians, in which he emphasises the crucial themes of steadfastness and readiness for the Rapture. Through his teachings, Paul urges believers to maintain vigilance and lead a blameless life in anticipation of the Lord’s sudden return, which is described as happening “like a thief in the night” (cf. Lu. 12:39; 1 Thess. 5:2, 4; Rev. 3:3, 16:15).

Books on the end times might not be the first choice of genre for every Christian, but as the book of Revelation tells us, the man who understands this book shall be blessed.

Marc Wheway is one Christian who has developed a serious interest in eschatology. Raised in a traditional Assemblies of God Church from age fifteen, he was exposed to Tim Lahaye’s Left Behind series while attending youth group in the nineteen-eighties. The production both interested him immensely and at the same time, scared him to death. From that time onwards, he was hooked on eschatology.

Marc says that the study of end times helps him to stay alert and vigilant as a Christian, aware that Jesus could return at any time.

“Regardless of my life concerning Christ, or the circumstances in general, I have never lost sight of the fact that Jesus could come for His church at any moment,” he said. “I also had a strong conviction that I would play a part in the things to come.

“Thirty-plus years later, I have not come across anything that has had the same impact as Tim Lahaye’s Left Behind series. Although I have read many books on the subject and have watched just about every teaching series and movie I could get my hands on, still, nothing has come close.”

With many Christian leaders not having a strong interest in the subject, and thus have limited knowledge on the end times, there are not many resources available, and often, what is available falls well short of the truth. According to Marc, many writings and those teaching on the subject lack the theological framework, and historical familiarity, to accurately piece together the puzzle.

Awaiting His Return is not Marc’s only book on the subject of eschatology. He is also the author of Return to the Lord; The Letters of Jude and John; Twenty-Four Signs of the End Times; Zechariah, Daniel’s Divulgement, The Revelation, Proclaimed and Explained, and The Revelation, the Revival.

Awaiting His Return, published by Ark House, is now available globally.
