Jesus informs John that Gentile pagans will have their diabolical way in Jerusalem for the last half (42 months divided by 12 equals three-and-a-half years) of the about-seven year Tribulation period, the latter closing out the Church Age. The Church Age began with the First Coming of Christ. The Church Age will conclude with the Second Coming of Christ.

The “trampling” includes the AntiChrist desecrating the next Temple to be constructed as well as laying low by his armies’ might the city of Jerusalem.

My thought is that the Church age is the time of the Gentiles. That the Church age ends at the Rapture. And that the last 7 years are once again Israels time. (Why else would there be a temple and temple sacrifices?)

Romans 11:25 I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in.

Obviously God has either a specific number of Gentiles, or a specific time for Gentiles. After that Gods mercy falls back to Israel.

first, thank you for your response.

second, now not meaning to begin a long disagreement dialogue on the rapture subject, i will mention that i do hold to a post-tribulation rapture, hence the reasoning in the post on the religion segment of free republic.

check out the detail here, if you wish and thank you again for your response.

I lean pre-trib myself, but like you I prefer not to but heads with others who dissagree. There are plenty of tribulation forums outside of FR for those kind of debates.

But regardless of our differences there, I think you would agree with me that something horrible has been set in motion in the last few years - and that we are witnessing events leading to last days.

As a young Christian in the 1970’s I got caught up in reading all of those end-times books in the Bible Book stores. The book captivating me the most, being Hal Lindsey’s book “The late great Planet Earth”. The books were fascinating at the time, I could hardly put them down - but the predictions even with the Biblical reference also seemed a little far fetched at the time. Yea, it could all happen, but it would take a hundred years or more I thought.

Those end-time book writers said we would someday be able to purchase about anything with the swipe of the card, even a telephone call, the vending machine and a parking lot? A stretch in the 1970’s, but now I hardly ever carry cash or coin anymore. Other that the coffee kitty at work I can go weeks without coin or paper money. To be completely cut off from it would be no big deal. As long as the card scanner worked. Oh and did I mention you could use the card all over the World? How possible was that in 1972? Now we are having China, the EU, and others saying we need to move to a global currency, and now for the first time ever – we are listening. Which brings me to the next topic.

We have come along way on this one since Hal Lindsey’s book, haven’t we? Hard to visualize in the 1970’s. Now, its something even the main stream media is picking up on. We can now communicate at the speed of light anywhere we want because of the World Wide Web and satellite communication. We can and are letting the Worlds economy, or our nation’s dept to other nations, and environmental treaties push us in that direction of a one World Government.

In 1972 It was a great mystery how one man could enter the World stage and become so popular in such a short amount of time, and how this popularity will cross borders. After all he will only have 3 1/2 years to position himself for the abomination of desecration. Not saying Obama is the One, but with Obama coming out of nowhere in just a few months to become almost a Godhead to hundreds of millions of his Koolaid drinking followers all over the World. I can say now, that this mystery has been solved. If he is not the One, the real antichrist is waiting just off stage, and Obama is preparing the world to accept One leader.

Now this should really give us who believe in the End-Times prophecies in the Bible something to contemplate. There has been talk about rebuilding the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem For the Abomination of Desolation to happen, the Temple would have to be rebuilt, right? Well there is serious talk of it now. News story from 5/26/09 Raad Salah: Netanyahu will Try to Rebuild the Jewish Temple
