Holly Pivec explains the skewed eschatology of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), including many bizarre and unbiblical teachings about the end time. NAR is very end-time focused since the goal of NAR is to bring God’s kingdom to earth. And many NAR leaders believe the dominant views of the end time, the views held by the majority of Christians today, need to be overturned because they are holding back the church from seeking to establish God’s kingdom. They think many Christians’ beliefs in a future Antichrist, great tribulation, and rapture are too negative and are distractions. They frequently ridicule those beliefs. And they’re calling for a major paradigm shift, where the church adopts a new NAR understanding of the end time: one that doesn’t include an Antichrist or tribulation—or, if it does include them, it minimizes the magnitude of those threats to the church. Some NAR prophets even claim that God has spoken to them directly about this new, more optimistic NAR doctrine. In other words, their NAR view of the end time is presented as new revelation for the church. So, what, exactly, is this NAR view of the end time held by many NAR leaders? That is the question Holly Pivec will answer in this episode.
