Is it the End of the World?

Is it the End of the World?

“Did you hear the one about…?”

Bible prophecy teachers get a bad rap as being dour, gloomy, “anxious for Armageddon.”

Actually, there is some comic relief swirling about the big issues related to biblical prophecy. In my work as a book editor, which I liken to Dr. Henry Jekyll drinking the elixir and becoming Mr. Hyde, I have had many opportunities over the years to laugh at the lighter side of the apocalypse.

In 1995, a fellow sent a manuscript in which he identified the Antichrist (hint: it wasn’t Bill Clinton).

Setting dates for Christ’s return, identifying the Antichrist, etc. isn’t my cup of tea. I’m not interested. I prefer to look at the big picture, to emphasize that the Bible is self-authenticating and therefore trustworthy.

So it was with boredom that I opened the aforementioned manuscript and began to flip through it. The thing was well-written, and heavily documented. And yes, he most certainly identified a modern figure as that diabolical, end-times embodiment of evil.

I won’t keep you hanging any longer. The writer/researcher pointed to…to…

Prince Charles.

It’s been more than 15 years and I’m still laughing. Every time I recall this story, the image of Charles looking half-awake, with wind-blown hair comes to mind.

That anyone could remotely link the prince of evil with this foppish, eccentric chap is quite hilarious. It’s like saying that a brutish destroyer has entered the world and he is that fellow over there, wearing a kilt and chasing butterflies.

Don’t tell me the study of Bible prophecy doesn’t have its light moments.
