1 Thessalonians 4: 13 - 18:
But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.
For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep.
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.
Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
Therefore comfort one another with these words.
More on that article in next post.
If you do not know Jesus yet, the time to turn to Him is NOW. Please run to Jesus - do it Today! All those who call upon Him, He will in no wise cast away.
His coming for His Beloveds - His Church - Which is all those who Belong to Him and who are alive at the time He Returns in the Clouds to call His Own to Meet Him in the Air - is very very near! Perhaps even this year!
From the Article Mentioned just above:
By Daymond Duck
The disciples asked Jesus, What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the age (Matthew 24:3)?
After several comments, Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass away till all these things be fulfilled (Matthew 24:34).
Controversy surrounds what He said. Some say this generation means the generation that was alive when Jesus was speaking. Most who believe this way spiritualize the Bible. They say Jesus came back about 2,000 years ago and that His return was a spiritual return. Others say this generation means the generation that sees all these things that Jesus had just mentioned in Matthew chapter 24. Most who believe this way take the Bible literally. And they say the return of Jesus is still future. It seems more likely that this second group is right.
For one thing, Jesus talked about the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet standing in the Holy place (Matthew 24:15). That didnt happen in the generation Jesus was speaking to. But it will happen in the future when the Antichrist defiles the rebuilt Temple 3½ years after a seven-year covenant for peace in the Middle East. Theres no evidence of a seven-year covenant for peace in the Middle East when Jesus said these things.
For another thing, Jesus talked about great tribulation such as was not since the beginning of the world, no nor ever shall be (Matthew 24:21). Its a stretch to say that 70 A.D. was worse than the Flood, worse than WWI, worse than WW II, worse than the Holocaust, or worse than anything that will happen in the future.
For another thing, Jesus said, Except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved (Matthew 24:21). No one came close to destroying the Romans Empire or everyone on earth in 70 A.D. Theres no evidence that Jesus came back and prevented anything like this from happening.
For another thing, Jesus said, Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other (Matthew 24:29-31). Theres no evidence of a darkened sun and moon, falling stars, everyone seeing Jesus, everyone on earth mourning, trumpets sounding, and all the elect being gathered together in 70 A.D.
Finally, Jesus told the parable of the fig tree (Matthew 24:32). Many commentators believe the fig tree represents Israel. Many believe that Jesus was saying when you see Israel back in the land know that the Second Coming is near. Israel had to be destroyed before she could come back into being.
How Long is This Generation
The Bible is vague and speculation abounds on this. After many years of saying we dont know how long a generation is, this ministry has turned to saying, We believe the terminal generation started in 1948 and it is our opinion that it will last 70 to 80 years.
The major reason for this change is that we have a better understanding of Psalm 90. It is the first of eleven Psalms that were written by Moses. Many believe its the oldest Psalm in the Bible. It begins with a comment about all generations. Moses said, Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations (Psalm 90:1). It talks about God forming or creating the earth (Psalm 90:2). It says, For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night (Psalm 90:4). Peter said it this way, one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day (II Peter 3:8). Psalm 90 makes a reference to the Flood and the brevity of life (Psalm 90:4-8). It turns to a discussion of our days and years (Psalm 90:9). Then, Moses said, The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away (Psalm 90:10). We will come back to this, but for the time being lets stick to the remainder of the Psalm. It mentions the anger and wrath of God which could be a reference to the Tribulation Period (Zephaniah 1:14-15; Revelation 6:16-17). It asks God to teach us to number our days that we may use our precious days wisely (Psalm 90:12). It calls upon the Lord to return which could be a reference to the Second Coming at the end of the Tribulation Period and asks how long it will be (Psalm 90:13). Then, it closes with four verses that can well be applied to the Millennium (Psalm 90:14-17).
Now, lets go back to verse 10 which reads, The days of our years are threescore years and ten (70 years); and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years (80 years), yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. We are not predicting a date, but assuming that the terminal generation started in 1948, and it will be 70 to 80 years long, it appears that God will fulfill everything including the Rapture, Tribulation Period and Second Coming, in 70 or perhaps up to 80 years (by 2018, but He may delay up to 2028). If one subtracts seven years (from 2017 or up to 2018) for the Tribulation Period, and an unspecified amount of time for the period between the Rapture and the beginning of the Tribulation Period, its obvious that the Rapture could happen any time.
As long as you’re on watch, I feel safe.
I hope so.....
Jesus: “Yes, I am coming soon.”
The believing Church: “Come Lord Jesus” Revelation 22:21
Correction: To believe the title, you have to disbelieve a far larger body of scripture than the cited passage.
Are you referring to a lack of evidence of a “rapture”?
Have ‘HIM’ ping me
Jesus Christ is right now pulling out all the stops in order to reach as many on this earth as possible to call them to Himself BEFORE He returns to meet all who belong to Him in the clouds in order to deliver them from the Great Tribulaton which is about to break upon this earth.
Just as in the Days of Noah so shall it be at the time of my coming again...Jesus said.
Noah and his family and many animals were saved in that ark from the first destruction of the earth that happened with the flood that covered the earth.
Jesus is “the Ark” who is going to come and bring His Beloveds to be with Him - safe from the time of great trouble, distress, and destruction that will begin VERY VERY SOON!
He is calling you who are reading this - to come to Him NOW. Do not delay another second.
He LONGS for you to be WITH HIM - starting now and taking you safely through the next seven years and then through the time of His return as Lord of Lords and King of Kings which will occur after the seven year time of tribulation to set up His Kingdom on this earth - and then into the new heavens and new earth which God is creating after that time.
You will forever be with the Lord Jesus, with all who are His from all history past until the end of time - AND (as we learned on another thread) with our beloved animals!
All who Call upon the Name of Jesus Shall Be Saved!
That includes YOU - please call upon Him this very moment!
These blind guides will have their reward.
32"Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. 33Even so, when you see all these things, you know that itis near, right at the door. 34I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 35Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
The whole passage is about the end times. Taken in context, it would most likely refer to the generation about which Jesus is talking, the one seeing the signs.
If makes no sense at all for Jesus to be going on about what's going to happen at the end, in the middle of it switch from talking about the end times generation to the generation He's living among, and then suddenly switch back to the end times one.
Read the Bible...
Such as? I’ve never heard any solid arguments against it.
Always be prepared, but do not panic, and do not run towards those who are proclaiming to know when Christ is returning. Do not follow false prophets. Do continue to reach out to those around you and share the love of Christ.
REMEMBER what Jesus said: "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only."
There’s not going to be the need for a peace treaty unless things get really bad first.
I don’t know that there’s much historical precedent for signing peace treaties when things are quiet and nobody is fighting.
Would such a peace treaty, if it transpired, be referred to as promoting ‘cold peace’?
Take 6 If We Ever
Well, there is also 2000 years of precedent. From Peter on, people have been just as convinced as you He would return “soon”, and with just as much (or more!) reason to think so. No, this time it isn’t different.
Nobody is predicting he day and hour here.
While nobody knows the day or the hour, we can read the signs that Jesus Himself gave us to be aware that His coming is near. Jesus Himself told us that.
Otherwise, what would the point be of Him warning us to watch and be ready?
Even the bridemaids with their lamps were watching, waiting, and expecting, even though they didn’t know the exact hour.
