BIBLE PROPHECY IS MOVING EXPONENTIALLY
Bible prophecy fulfillment is moving exponentially toward the Rapture of the Church — when the Holy Spirit departs in a nanosecond with Believers in tow. For those who are part of the Rapture, it’ll be an unbelievable experience you’ll never forget. (1Cor 15:51; 1Thes 4:16)
The Rapture will be followed by seven years of the most horrific Tribulation imaginable. Death and destruction will reach new lows as Satan, unrestrained, wreaks havoc on the earth. (Dan 9:27; 2Thes 2:6; Rev 6:16)
In the end, Satan brings the world’s armed forces against Israel but Jesus returns to
the earth for His 2nd Coming, defeats Satan and sets up His earthly reign for 1000
years. (Rev 16:16; Rev 1:7; Rev 20:2-6)
What an exciting time to live! Yes, it’s painful to watch our country abandon the Godly principles that made us great. But God gives us a hope and a future through Bible Prophecy. Prophecy tells us where we are and where we’re going! (James 5:8)
And right up to death or Rapture, God says to keep busy working, comfort people with Bible prophecy and look for opportunities to witness. Each day the Lord tarries, more people can repent and miss the awful tribulation. (Lk 19:13; 1Thes 4:18; Col 4:3-5)
The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, hut is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. 2Pet 3:9
So our job is to keep the main thing, the main thing. The only thing that really matters when all the dust settles is who goes to heaven and who goes to hell!
Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. Col 3:1,2
So as we wait for our changed, sinless and eternal state in the presence of God, we are encouraged that God’s in control. JESUS 1.COMING Prepares - John 14:2,3
John 14:16; Acts 2:1-4; 2Thes 2:7
1 Cor. 15:51.52; 1Thes 4:16,17
PAUL H O L Y S P I R I T RAPTURE
2ND SECOND COMING
JESUS REIGNS AS KING IN THE 1000 YEAR MILLENNIUM
THEN NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTH
1) Wicked Generation began:
2 Tim 3:1-5, 2 Peter 3:3-4, Mark 24::32, 37-39
In 33 AD The Holy Spirit was released who took the place of Jesus Christ because it was more effective, worldwide. Jesus could only be in one place to preach without TV etc. The Holy Spirit is God in Spirit, Jesus is God in flesh, God is Spirit. Jesus is 100% Spirit & 100% flesh. He still has His body in heaven as we will have ours.
This time from 33 AD lasts to the Rapture Event (could happen at any time) If a person is not in it, it means having to wait till the middle of the Tribulation (3.5 yrs) when the Mark of the Beast goes into effect. To not take it means having to die for your faith. To go to heaven one has to refuse the Mark on the hand or forehead in other words one to refuse to serve Lucifer. (Satan, Dragon).
Rapture h is in the Bible even though they make one believe it is not: 1 Thes 4:14, 1 Cor 15:52
The Lie: 2 Thess 2:11
The period from 33 AD when Jesus was crucified until the Rapture is called THE TIMES OF THE GENTILES. The New Testament came into effect in 30 AD when Jesus started His ministry. He was an Aaronic Priest, which could only be gotten by being from a family who were Aaronic Priests (certain Jews). The Aaronic Priesthood was ended by God after the crucifixion. God made Jesus a Melchisedek Priest. There is only one, because it is God’s personal priesthood and it grants eternal life in heaven. (The Pope has the title as well, which is blasphemy.)
Here is why: The Old Testament was stopped. God wanted Jews to be His family.
Trouble is in the flesh people can’t seem to live up to the ten . Cont’d 1 cont’d commandments. Commit one sin; one commits them all. Jesus said there is no one good with one exception and that is God. That is why the 10 commandments eventually cause one to go to hell. There was no way out.
When Adam and Eve disobeyed, God cursed the whole world and condemned people from then on. He did arrange animal sacrifices for sins temporarily whenever people wanted forgiveness and that was only for Jews. The Aaronic Priesthood was Jewish only. Because of God’s curse there was no way to get into heaven even for the Jews and especially for Gentiles. Animal sacrifices were good for temporary coverage.
Death was imminent due to God’s curse. There was no death before Adam and Eve disobeyed. They already had paradise and eternal life.
In 30 AD when Jesus began His ministry to the Jews, He wanted them to preach the Gospel. Never forget, Jesus preached to the Jews. Gentiles where assigned to the Apostle Paul later.
Jesus taught only two commandments: to love God with all one’s heart and soul and to love one’s neighbors (people we come in contact with).
The Jews refused to accept Jesus as God’s Son. To them He was just a carpenter who lived in their village. Jesus broke all the old traditions and they couldn’t stand it.
The Jews became responsible for the crucifixion. They are still waiting for their Savior.
God again condemned the Jews and they had to leave Israel and wandered all over the world condemned to persecution (anti Semitism)
The Book of Acts tells the details how salvation came to the Gentiles. That is why from 33 AD the time is called “the Times of the Gentiles”. Luke 21:24,25.
The Body of Christ (the invisible Church) consists of those Cont’d
1 Cont’d - who ask God for forgiveness and are baptized by immersion in water (Jesus did that Himself as well) and He then baptizes the believers with the Holy Spirit so they can understand the Bible and get help in living the two commandments Jesus taught. .
Believers now are called ‘born again’. They publicly become the Bride of Christ Jesus, waiting to be wedded to Him for eternity. That happens after the Rapture at the end of the 7-year Tribulation when all believers are in heaven. That includes a remnant of Jews.
The reason the Tribulation cannot happen until after the Rapture: The Holy Spirit is a restrainer. He must be removed. Since He is in believers, they have to be raptured.
For the Believers there is a judgment that is often misinterpreted. This judgment is about rewards. Our sins are totally forgiven when we receive Christ Jesus as our Lord and Saviour.
God tells us to build treasures in heaven that He will reward us for what we have done for Him exclusively or in His name.
1 Cor 3:11-15; 2 Cor 5:10; Lu 21:36
At the end of the 7-year Tribulation, we return with Jesus. It is the 2nd Coming when the remnant of Jews recognize that He was the Christ in 30 AD. Jesus gives them a new heart and adds them to His Bride. Now the wedding can begin when the Church is betrothed to Christ Jesus for eternity.
The 1000-year Millennium begins still here on earth. Revelation 20:6 “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”
The great White Throne Judgment comes after that. All the dead still waiting in graves and the living during the Millennium are resurrected and judged to go to heaven or hell. Cont’d
1 cont’d - Revelation 20:15 “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” To explain this: Everyone is in the Book of Life originally. Anyone who rejects Jesus Christ as their Saviour is stricken from the Book of Life and appropriately so.
2) When nations gather around Israel for war the Tribulation is at hand. Zec 14:2
REMEMBER THE TRIBULATION IS ABOUT ISRAEL. THEY HAVE BEEN RUNNING THE WORLD FROM THE DARK SIDE.
- The One World Leader arises to make a peace agreement with many. Dan 11:21, 36-38, John 5:43
1The Tribulation begins with a Peace Treaty: Dan 9:27
2 Witnesses appear on the streets of Jerusalem Rev 11:1-12; Mal 4:5; John 21:23
3 Jews are called back to Israel
4 One World Religion Rev 17
5 Jewish Temple rebuilt
6 144,000 Jews (12 000 of each of 12 Tribes are sealed) Rev 7:4
ANOTHER SERIES OF EVENTS: 4 Horses:
1. White Horse The Antichrist
2. Red Horse War
3. Black Horse Depression
4. Pale Horse: Famine death
That concludes the first three and half years of the Tribulation.
The reason the Jews rebuild the temple is to begin sacrificing animals again. Their tribulation is so hard on them that they call on God to forgive them once again.
At midpoint in the Tribulation there is war heaven between an arch angel and Satan (Lucifer).. He is finally kicked out of the lower heaven to earth. Antichrist receives a deadly wound on his head which should have killed him but not quite. Satan (devil) slips into that body and takes over. Rev 12:9
This event is called the Abomination of Desolation
Math 24:15; Dan 11:31; 2 Thes 2:4
The first thing this occupied Antichrist does is kill – Cont’d
2 Cont’d - the two witnesses. Rev 11:7. The people were afraid of them since they had powers that nobody could control. Celebration that they were dead was worldwide. They lay in the street for three days dead. Suddenly God raised them from the dead. Resurrected them and called them up to heaven.
The Mark of the Beast is offered on the hand or forehead. Those who do not take the Mark of the Beast are murdered most likely by guillotines. The heads are cut off.
Math 24:16; Mark 13:14-17; Zech 13:8
Satan rules the earth.
Rev 13:5; 16
God’s Wrath pored out.
Rev 14:10; 13:5; 16
Math 24:15-22; Zech 13:8
Protected in Wilderness
Rev 12:6; 14
Ends with Armageddon
3) SECOND COMING OF CHRIST \
Jude 14; 2 Thes 2:8
Rev 20; Isaiah 65:25
Isaiah 65:25 “The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.
SATAN IS BOUND
And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come. 1 Thessalonians 1:10
Thessalonians 4:13-18 Apostle Paul's promise of Jesus's Resurrection / Rapture. The believers expected this event then and there.
1 Thessalonians 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.(that was 2000+ years ago)
2 Thessalonians 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. (This is where the confusion comes in)
How does it apply?
The Bible teaches 'The Day of the Lord' is 1000 years, includes the Day of Christ (Rapture), the Tribulation and the Millennium (1000 years).
2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day."
Since Jesus was born (they believe four years prior to the year 0) figuring 1000 years for 1 day, we are now into the 3rd day (2013)
Jesus resurrected on the 3rd day and spent 40 days with His disciples. After that He ascended back to Heaven.
He told the disciples that He was sending the Holy Spirit to indwell them and believers. God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are One God. The Holy Spirit resides now in born again believers who are the spiritual church and the Body of Christ Jesus. In that sense Jesus did come back in a different form at Pentecost which wwas much more effective to get the good news out considering how many would be sharing with the world of Christ's coming.
The New Testament was not written until approximately 60 years after Jesus went back to be at the right hand of God. The New Testament was written over a period of time.
Jesus said that He would come back when it is the darkest spiritually. That had to take place in order for the prophecy revealed in Daniel, Revelations etc. many other places in the Bible. Darkness means that Christianity cannot be openly practiced anymore. Today Christians are considered to be terrorists since they can't comply with laws of the land.
All people in the world will have to take the Mark of the Beast at some point or be killed. Today that is possible with universal healthcare.
The Bible also teaches that all people would have to be evangelized and that too is possible today via TV, missionaries and all the other gadgets available.
All people will be able to see the Second Coming which is also possible today. .
The Bible also teaches that the world would have to be global government. That happened with the United Nations.
The Jews would return to Israel is another prophecy that is in process since 1948.
The Antichrist has to be making a peace treaty with the Palestinians, They have been working on that since 1948. It is predicted that there would be no peace. Eventually there would be agreement and that is the beginning of the seven year tribulation. It is all coming together just like the Bible prophesied.
