Reminder of the Supporting Arguments For a Pre-Trib Rapture

Image
Our dear brother Ron (Watchman 35) who has graced these pages since 2017 has a very edifying post up on the Rapture in the Air Now forums which is a great strengthener in the Blessed Hope, the PRE-Tribulation Snatching Out of Harms Way (aka Rapture) of the Church.  In the post he list's 7 strong arguments that support the Pre-Trib interpretation.

His 7 Points are described in detail in the link below... I will share his list and give you an excerpt of one of them so you can get the flavor:
 The Dispensational Imperative The Wrath Factor The Difference Between the Rapture and The Second Coming The Jewish Wedding Tradition The Apostasia of 2 Thessalonians The Content and Structure of Revelation Preppers vs WatchersHere is an excerpt for #4: 4. The Jewish Wedding Tradition: this tradition mirrors the relationship of Jesus to the Church in every facet. Most notably, the departure of the Bridegroom back to his father’s house to prepare a place for his betrothed bride, with the intention…

2020-2027 Tribulation Timeline - Return of the King

Image
George from the Return of the King channel has a very interesting timeline video he has put up.  If the rapture should occur in 2020, there are a lot of dates that line up in the coming years that fit with the day counts listed in Daniel. Day counts that land on Holy Days on the Jewish calendar such as Yom Kippur in 2027 and the mid point lands on the day of the 2nd solar eclipse the X's out America in 2024.... According to George, this all fits like a glove!!  All the information is below, please check it out....

Here is his email to me introducing his latest video:

Hi Brad, I think it been a year since I sent you a link to one of my videos.  Everyone who is steadfastly watching for his return has the feeling it's going to be real soon! So I though I should see what happens if I put a timeline together. I was just amazed how everything just lined up, no twisting, pushing or pulling, it all fell into place effortlessly! We needed a catalyst, and we got one, the Corona Virus. …

Tracking the Rapture and Tribulation Events - Michael Bond

Image
I have shared posts by Michael Bond on this site a few times in the past.... He doesn't post new articles often, but when he does they are very well thought out, extensively researched, and PACKED with awesome info with a 'Heavenly Perspective'. His latest article was put up about a week ago, but I finally was able to read it and came away very impressed. He nails this the state of the world right now and how these moving pieces are forming a soon coming picture of events from the tribulation.  It only took me about 10 minutes to read but he provide many additional links to sources if you are interested.   Here is a list of the headings from the article...

What Will The Rapture Be Like? - Stephanie Dawn

Image
Stephanie Dawn posted an awesome article last night in which she harvested several insights about what the rapture will be like, hopefully something we all experience first hand very soon.  I especially loved how she shared 20 or 21 different Bible passages on the subject...each of them giving us clues on what to expect.


Stephanie covers many of the standard questions, but I really liked her section titled: One Last Opportunity to Witness? 

Upon close examination of scripture, Stephanie, like others of us have come to the conclusion that the standard narrative of being raptured and glorified does not necessarily have to happen at the same instant.  Perhaps, we will be like glorified first, and then the rapture will follow some time afterwards, how long, well the general idea is usually from a few hours (Stephanie's view) on up to possibly 40 days (like Jesus after his resurrection).   I for one am not sure, and doubt any of us will be worried much about it once we realize we are i…

More Manna? Well Sort Of...

Image
Ok, if you are like me you notice patterns, especially patterns related to the Bible. It seems that God has a way of using patterns and templates of past events to give us a clue on how future events will play out. One such event that people have noticed is the pattern of the Exodus. This post will not be an exhaustive recap on how we are seeing this pattern play out, but another specific example of this pattern that I just noticed this evening...
This picture above is from our families actual refrigerator. What you will notice is a stack of mile containers. This isn't even all of what we have stacked in there. The reason we have so many is that our local schools all switched over to remote schooling (from home). To help supplement families, they have daily lunch pick-ups from the school parking lot each day. You drive up, hold fingers indicating how many kids you have, and they proceed to bring you meals (including 2 milks each) for each child - for that day. It is an ama…

Gary's Latest Video

Image
All, my dear brother Gary posted a video about a week ago that I want to make sure gets shared as it should. He has such a down to earth way of teaching and depth of knowledge that his views are always worth considering. Most of all for me, he has such a tender heart toward God and is so receptive to God's nudges, that gives Gary extra bonus points in my book...  Many teachers have a lot of knowledge, but not all of them are humble, tender hearted and receptive to the still small voice of God. Gary is and that is part of the reason I love him.  If you have a few moments, please check his video above in which he clears up some confusion on imminency, discussing current events and our blessed hope.

One small thing on imminency that I would add.  I am reading through Scripture at bedtime with our kids, and right now we are in Exodus.   The following verse jumped out at me... and backing up what Gary is saying...
At the end of the 430 years, to the very day, all the Lord’s division…

Bed Rest / Lyn Melvin's Latest

Image
As I was laying in bed this morning shortly after waking up, I was catching up on a few sites. I was led to check out Lyn Melvin's latest blog post , and as I was still laying in bed, just a paragraph in as she describes the birth imagery, it finally hit me what this whole Covid-19 lockdown is.... BED REST!

We are waiting for the birth of the man child from Rev 12-5, and now The Woman (Israel, and the born again believers connected with Christ (us) are all at home waiting. That sounds like bed rest to me! Anyway, as that thought hit me I continued to read Lyn's article, and I must say that this has to me my favorite post by Lyn Melvin to date. She covers Revelation 12:1-5 with comprehensive strokes looking and shares a plethora of relevant video's and articles as back up.

I encourage you all to read it and prepare your hearts for the possibilities that she may be right. Have a wonderful Passover and Easter and KEEP LOOKING UP!

Light in the Darkness

There is a lot going on right now.  Lots of videos showing clear signs that evil is about to take center stage once the restrainer is soon removed regarding the mark of the beast, etc. Astronomical signs continuing, most notable Venus (brighter than ever) meeting up the Pleiades in a very clear representation of Christ coming for His Church. Barry Scarborough had a video this morning about how there was the most earthquakes ever in a 24 hour period (or something like that)…. Just unbelievable stuff is happening.  But the following video is what I would like to share.... This tender video gave me so much encouragement.... it's basically just news stories from around the country showing how GOD is getting praise and glory during this time, especially through our beloved healthcare workers. Stories of how hope is shining bright by turning toward HIM.

Enjoy and be blessed by this 15 minute video...

The Best Prohecy Update Yet!

Image
I have been watching JD Farag a long time and was actually blessed enough to meet him once a few years ago. His heart for the Gospel and for the Lord's Return are personally inspiring for me.... And out of all the videos I have watched from him, out of all the teachings I have seem him teach....this is the most excited I have seen him about Jesus coming back very soon due to all that is happening! It is hard to describe, but he really seems to think that this year is THE year.  I know this has been shared a few places already, but if you have not seen it yet you need to check this out.  Maranatha!!!!

Here is the video: (29 minutes)

Preparation for the Tribulation

Image
There has been a lot of discussion lately regarding the Coronavirus and how it relates to Bible prophecy...  There are some who so no connections, other who see some connection, and others yet who see immense connection.  Gary was even interviewed for a article about this in the Washington Post.  Here is an excerpt from the article
Gary Ray, a writer for the prophecy website Unsealed, agreed: He and his fellow evangelical End-Times writers are focused on what is happening with holy sites in Israel, not disease. “The key focus that we have in our minds is Israel. That’s God’s prophetic clock. As things progress in that country, we get closer to when the rapture of the church will occur, and then the tribulation,” he said.

Ray, who lives near Dallas, pointed out that there have been many pandemics in world history, and none of them have been a token of an approaching apocalypse. But this one might be different, he acknowledged — because of an astrological event in 2017 that Ray read as…

Waiting for the Trumpet Blast / Comet Atlas

Image
Below is an excerpt from Gary's most recent article over at Unsealed. As always, he does a great job keeping us encouraged and informed. I am so grateful to be on this journey with him as we continue watching for the Lord in uncertain time. Check out his wise words, a link the entire article is below.
This has been a multi-year journey for all of us, in a way reminiscent of that undertaken by the magi over 2,000 years ago, but the journey is nearing its end. The trumpet will sound. The dead in Christ will rise. Those who are alive and remain will be snatched up to meet the LORD in the air. These are not suggestions or mere religious interpretations, but unbreakable promises from the God who created the world itself (1 Thess. 4:16–5:3). His promises are true (Rm. 11:29; 15:8; 2 Cor. 1:20; Rev. 3:14). That means you can rest in them and trust in them. God loves His children and His children are those who believe in the Son.

Christians are not promised escape from tribulat…

Wake Up! Do You Know What’s Coming?

Image
"All the perils in this world are in a sense, a good thing because they are shaking up people, in order to wake them up!"

JD Farag is one of my favorite preachers, mainly because he is unafraid to outline exactly what is going on in the world and how it all ties to Bible Prophecy.  He is not afraid to point to the fact that the rapture is soon.  He is warm, tender, but does not pull punches when it comes to the truth.

This week he was on the radio with Jan Markell discussing all of the current events...  I encourage you all to check out this fascinating discussion that should not only make you excited but also take away any fear that you may have!

Anyway, hope you are doing well and resting in the presence of the Lord.  If you have a minute please pray for my parents... they were on a bus trip halfway across the country and are having a very slow time getting home.  Please pray that they make it home healthy and safe, and also that all this would help turn them closer and cl…

Prophetic Headlines - John Paul Jackson

Image
Crazy, crazy week huh?  The wave of cancelations this week shook a lot of people up. If the NBA, NHL, and NCAA are willing to cancel swaths of games and forfeit potentially hundreds of millions of dollars, well I think that has caused a lot of people to take this virus much more seriously.  Costco has certainly gotten much busier lately!  Whether you saw this coming or not, you may be surprised to know that John Paul Jackson has a prophetic headline that points to a possible extended battle (through the summer and into the fall...) with this virus.  We will not know for sure if this is what JPJ was speaking of until later in the year, but with the rash of cancellations  this specific headline instantly came to mind when I heard of all the pro sports leagues cancelling and postponing games.

Luckily for you, my friend Hope from The Call of the Bride remembered the headline as well, and she actually had a video up several days before any of the leagues announced there cancelations!

Time Is Almost Up...

Image
Today we had the largest point drop in the history of the Dow Jones. Prior to this the news has been non-stop coverage of a virus that is sweeping across the entire world. Large gatherings, concerts, even all church services in Rome (during lent no less) are being cancelled as millions are quarantined. At the same time we have a locust swarm sweeping across the planet destroying crops everywhere they go. Strange sounds, strange sights are heard and seen without known origin. Animals die-offs and earthquakes are increasing so rapidly they hardly make the headlines anymore. People are increasingly accepting of microchips in their right hands to help them conveniently purchase products and perform essential tasks. The gospel is being spread far and wide to just about every language and people group in the world, while simultaneously being met with more open resistance than ever. The male and female genetic code written inside every cell of our body is being erased by society in t…

BEGINNING of Birth Pangs - Stephanie Dawn

Image
Stephanie Dawn has been tireless in here teaching and encouragement over the past several years.  If you are not familiar with her, she runs the https://redmoonrapture.org/ and is also the key moderator of the Even at the Doors: Pre-trib Rapture Watchers group on Facebook.  She is one of my favorite people to read and I encourage you all to study her wonderful work.
Here is a brief not that she shared on Facebook this week, very to the point but also extremely encouraging because it is a scriptural step by step that shows how near we are to the Lords return and how the Rev 12 Sign fits into the puzzle....
On September 23, 2017, there was an alignment in the sun, moon, and stars that exactly matched a vision the apostle John was given by Jesus 1900 years ago. Jesus called it a Great Sign: Rev 12:1-2 "And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, tr…

Heb 10:25 and the Coronavirus

Image
19 Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy plac-es by the blood of Jesus, 20 by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. Hebrews 10:25
The last verse in the scripture above has always been a confirmation of the belief that those who study the bible closely and are watching intently will be aware of the proximity of the end times (1 Thes 5:4-5 is another good one). In other words, if we…

Colossians 3:2-4

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Philippians 3:20-21

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
