The next prophetic event that concerns the church, true followers of Jesus Christ, is known as the rapture. One day soon, Jesus will appear in the clouds and call us up to be with Him. He is currently preparing a place for us, and that place will soon be ready (John 14:2-3)! Traditional pretribulation teaching … Continue reading Is the Rapture Imminent (Could it Happen At Any Moment)?
The Fall Feasts of God are the next appointments on God's calendar waiting to be prophetically fulfilled (that is, unless we see Pentecost Part Trois). As I write this, we are currently in the middle of their annual celebration - in the so-called "Days of Awe" or "Days of Repentance". The Fall Feasts - The … Continue reading Yom Kippur – Do We Go Up As Wrath Comes Down?
In my previous overview of the Feasts of God - His Appointed Times - I noted that while the 3 Spring Feasts have clearly been fulfilled by Jesus Christ at His first coming, Pentecost is a little less clear, and the Fall Feasts have certainly not yet been fulfilled. What everyone wants to know, I'm … Continue reading The Harvest of the Church and the Fulfillment of the Feasts of God
In our previous study, we noted that the Thessalonians were terrified that they had missed the event known as "the gathering unto Christ", because they thought that the Day of the Lord had already come. Paul had previously taught the Thessalonians that they would be delivered from the wrath to come via a resurrection of … Continue reading Part 3 – The Apostasia [Departure/Falling Away] and the Revealing of the Lawless One
In writing this I will tell you straight up that I likely have several events in incorrect order. For some it is difficult to place them with precision; I will try to identify these as we go along. Why write this at all, then? Well, I have personally found it much easier to grasp details … Continue reading God’s Mosaic – Possible Sequence of End Time Events
In examining rapture views, I noticed there was disagreement between scholars about whether it was better to be "taken" or "left" in Matthew 24. One view is that believers are "taken" into heaven (raptured), and the ones who are "left" remain to face judgement. The other view is that unbelievers are "taken" to hell/judgment at … Continue reading Is It Better to Be TAKEN or LEFT?
For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. Romans 8:22 ESV I'm not a pastor. I'm just someone who has given birth. I know that all births are painful, and that many babies have particularly challenging births. My kids were of those! Subsequently, the references … Continue reading Braxton Hicks, Labor Pains, and the Time of the End
The earth is wobbling like a top ready to spin out of control. Can you feel it? We are rapidly approaching the point of no return where humanity's actions will tip the scales of God’s wrath. Life as we know it will come crashing to a cataclysmic halt. Christians know it, other religions know it, … Continue reading God’s Mosaic – A Whole Scripture Overview of Things To Come
We have already discussed that the rapture is currently imminent, in that nothing has to happen before it occurs - Is the Rapture Imminent? So now let's examine a similar teaching, that the Day and Hour of the rapture can't be known. The reasoning goes like this - "Jesus doesn't even know when the rapture is, and … Continue reading The Day and The Hour That Is/Was Unknown? – In Defense of “High Watches”
The Earthquake Resurrection Pattern A very interesting pattern in scripture emerges when studying resurrections from the dead. There are a number of recorded resurrections in Scripture, but the majority of these are back to mortal life. It is when one studies resurrections from the dead into immortality, that one notices a connecting thread - local … Continue reading The Noisy, Not-So-Secret Rapture of the Church
