I believe the next major prophetic event is going to be the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of living saints into resurrection bodies. This will be followed by a literal "catching away" of those who believe in Jesus, taking them to heaven. This is commonly known as the rapture, from the … Continue reading Finding the PreTribulation Rapture in Scripture

For that reason, we … Continue reading Pentecost Part 15 – The Day the Skies Open
