The Eschatological Mastery of the World and Prayer - by Dr. C. Matthew McMahonArticles on the Christian Walk, Systematic Theology and Practical Theology
Today, many Christians are turning back to the puritans to, “walk in the old paths,” of God’s word, and to continue to proclaim old truth that glorifies Jesus Christ. There is no new theology. In our electronic age, more and more people are looking to add electronic books (ePubs, mobi and PDF formats) to their library – books from the Reformers and Puritans – in order to become a “digital puritan” themselves. Take a moment to visit Puritan Publications (click the banner below) to find the biggest selection of rare puritan works updated in modern English in both print form and in multiple electronic forms. There are new books published every month. All proceeds go to support A Puritan’s Mind.

This new edition updates and adds dozens of footnotes, expanded chapters and updates information.
Are you a joyful Christian? Would others say that about you? How does Christian joy mark your life as you live in eager expectation of Christ’s immanent return? Did you know that we are living in the end times? The Bible teaches that Christians, right now, are living in the end times, the last days. The Old Testament saints believed that. Jesus taught the Kingdom of Heaven was at hand. The Apostles taught that we live in the last days. The Church of Jesus Christ has always believed that they live in the end times. Even now, the Church eagerly awaits the final consummation of the ages, when Christ will return with a shout, the voice of the archangel and the trumpet call of God. In that moment we shall be changed from corruptible to incorruptible. But what about right now? In light of the biblical fact that we are living in the end times, how should we live every day? The purpose of this book is to explain how Christians should live each day as if it were their final days while living in the end times. Paul shows us how to do this in the letter to the Philippians.
In studying Philippians, you will learn how to cultivate real eschatological joy as you pray, read Scripture, meditate on the word, and glorify God in your walk. Every Christian should have enough evidence against them that they are accused of being joyful every day. Are you?
So many Christians live a life devoid of true joy. Did you know that you are living in the end times and that your life should be marked with joy as a result? Do people think you are a joyful Christian?
