World News Update! Are we close to the Rapture?

By GDK4GOD

Hey folks,

It is absolutely fascinating how bible prophecy is so quickly coming to pass.  The world stage is setup so perfectly for many prophecies to be fulfilled.   There are two prophecies that could be fulfilled at any time:

1) Ezekiel 38 war against Israel.  The nations that the bible mentions who will attack Israel are all close to being in place.  Not only are they in place, but, the political climate has reached a peak. 

2) Isaiah 17:1.  Damascus shall cease from being a city and shall be a ruinous heap.  We all see the news regarding the Syrian Civil War.  Damascus is in the center of the fighting and bombing daily.

There are many other prophecies also to be fulfilled.  However, they will occur after the tribulation period begins. 

Here are some highlights, but, there are many more:

The Anti-Christ will be revealed at the beginning of the “tribulation period”.

7-year peace treaty with Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

The Jewish temple will be rebuilt and the Jews will reinstate animal sacrifices.

The abomination of desolation.

The mark of the beast (could be before or after the abomination of desolation).

Armageddon.

There is only one prophecy that needs to be fulfilled prior to the return of Jesus for the rapture of his church.  Which is for “the gospel of Jesus Christ to be preached throughout the world to all the nations”.  This one is hard to pin down.  It may actually already be fulfilled.

That means that Jesus could return at any time.  We must be ready.  We must be watching.  Jesus warned us to watch and be ready for he will come as a theif in the night.

This is one reason I believe in a pre-tribulation rapture.  We need to be ready and watching.  If it were otherwise, than we would have many more signs to tell us he is coming (anti-christ revealed, 7 year peace treaty signed, abomination of desolation, mark of the beast, etc).

Jesus commanded us to preach the gospel to the world.  That is our commision as Christians from God.  We need to be doing his work.  Serving our Lord.  Does that mean if you are not living your life and preaching the word of God then you will not go to heaven?  No.  I am not saying that.  I believe that if you are saved, then you will go to heaven.  Jesus said that no one can take us away from him if we are saved.  We are sealed by God.  God can see the seal he put on us.  It is visible to him.   We are his children.  So, I believe that you will always be his child.  However, I can not say that with absolute certainty.  It is better and wise to be walking closely with God daily then not.

For those who do not yet know God, I urge you to seriously consider accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior.  Time is so very short before the tribulation begins.  If you wait until after the tribulation period begins, which could be any day, then it will be close to impossible to accept him then.  God will send a strong delusion upon all unbelievers alive on the earth that they will believe the lies of Satan!  If you do not believe in Jesus as Lord now, how will you believe then?  Only the fool says there is no God.

For more information on “The tribulation”, “The rapture”, “getting saved”, please check out my other web pages at the top of the header bar.  Go to the “Get Saved” page for information on how to get saved, a prayer to get saved and what to do after getting saved.

God Bless until next time!

    Close! We will be harvested after the 7th trumpet blares. So-called ‘rapture of the church’ will not be judged piror to the great tribulation! I had hoped by now you would had understood the parable of the ten virgins.

      Actually Revelation 11:15 says “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!”

      It does not say anything about a rapture.

      Read:
      1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.”

      It speaks of the “trumpet of God”, not the seventh trumpet of Revelation. These are two different trumpets. The trumpet of God is God’s voice.

      So many people confuse the trumpets. The bible also speaks of the “trumpet of God” in Exodus 19:19
      And when the blast of the trumpet sounded long and became louder and louder, Moses spoke, and God answered him by voice.

      Also the parable of the “ten vigins” proves my point even more. The five virgins with oil in their lamps who entered the door. This door is the bridegrooms chambers. They do not marry the groom right away. They must first prepare for the wedding and super of the Lamb.

      God Bless! :-)
