  • End of the WORLD: Biblical prophecy claims Rapture is coming TODAY on summer solstice

    The Rapture is an event many Christians believe marks the return of the son of God – and all the believers will disappear from Earth up to Heaven in the "twinkling of an eye". But this happens after a tribulation period – seven years that are first of peace and unity around the world and then three and a half years of war and global pandemics. And Steve Fletcher, who monitors events that could signal the end of mankind, believes the Rapture starts today. He said: “Time is up and all hell breaks loose after June 21, 2018.” He explained...
  • Are You Ready?...wedding parables pt 12

    Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give...
  • The Prophecy Clock Has Now Run Out for Dispensationalism

    American Vision ^ | May 14, 2018 | Gary DeMar
    Today is the 70th anniversary of the political creation of the State of Israel. This fact is crucial for American fundamentalists. This is because most of them believe in something their pastors call “the clock of prophecy.” It started ticking on May 14, 1948, or so they have been told by a generation of pastors and authors. But there is a problem. It was not supposed to keep ticking longer than 70 years — the normal lifespan of one generation. Before I explain all this, I want you to understand that American fundamentalists are almost all dispensationalists. This is called...

    Prophecy Watchers ^ | May 17, 2017 | Jack Langford
    Pentecost is the only Feast day which was looked upon by Jewish teachers as a “mystery” Feast, a Feast which was identified with a time of Gentile redemption. In fact, we shall see that the apostle Paul uses terminology pointing to the Feast of Pentecost and to the Offering at Pentecost in regards to the future resurrection of the Church. We also discover that this is the only Feast on Israel’s liturgical calendar which could typify the Rapture of the Church and at the very same time not be subject to the error of “date setting” in terms of its...

    Over the last few weeks and months I have found myself truly astonished at the speed of which Bible prophecy appears to be unfolding on the world scene. If one looks back towards the election and inauguration of President Barack Obama, one will notice that around the same time things started to change for Israel and the Middle East in general. With the inauguration of President Obama looming in early 2009, Israel was pressured into ending the war with the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas during Operation Cast Lead. This pressure resulted in Israel not finishing their objective of wiping out...
  • Is the world going to end THIS MONTH? Conspiracy theorists claim biblical Rapture [tr]

    UK Daily Mail ^ | April 12, 2018 | Cheyenne McDonald
    Conspiracy theorists have sparked fresh fears that the end of the world is fast approaching. On April 23, the sun, moon, and Jupiter will align in the constellation Virgo to bring on the start of the biblical Rapture, according to the latest claims. And, that night, it's said the mysterious planet Nibiru will appear in the sky, followed by the onset of World War III, rise of the Antichrist, and seven years of Tribulation. While the predictions are certainly alarming, you probably don't have to start bracing for the apocalypse just yet.

    You know who you are. You are the person other people tip toe around when it comes to discussing current events or religion. You are the person who can spend hours devouring scripture or news with equal vigor, pointing out ‘last days’ events to anyone who would listen to you. You are semi-shunned at church. You are disinvited from church socials, because you are just too intense and narrow-minded. You are called a ‘conspiracy theorist’ or a ‘Jesus Freak’ behind your back. You are always going on about the Lord’s return and that “Rapture thingy”. Admit it. You are one...

    The talk Amir gave earlier this fall in Minnesota is finally up on YouTube. Lots of good history and comments on what the role of the United States may be in Bible prophecy and events to come. An excellent, beautiful speech, and thanks to Olive Tree Ministries for this fantastic convention of end times speakers.
  • Believers in The Rapture (shouldn't fight about it)...

    But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore...

    Amir starts at about the 32-minute mark. A passionate plea to be ready, and to be sure we are found doing God's work, with the usual dose of news and facts you don't hear anywhere else, and a better understanding of recent history in the Middle East. Some thoughts about America: Why is it not mentioned in prophecy? There are 4 possible causes of America's absence from the stage at the time of the Ezekiel 38 war. The theme of North Korea as smokescreen continued, with more explanation. Don't let your heart be troubled!

    Much of this is about the September 23rd sign and the Rapture, but before that we have a current events update, beginning at the 5-minute mark. This may be the most important message from Amir thus far: We are not to waste this time but use it to bring as many people to salvation as possible. We are not to be discouraged, because God is never late. We are to return to Him and He will return to us.

    Unsealed ^ | 8/24/17 | Gary
    Satan twists God's message by elevating one Scripture at the expense of all others.  Sadly, many Christians play right along with him.  Interpreting Scripture is not "this and not that", but "line upon line".  In other words, we need to stop shredding Scriptures, ignoring others, and assuming what they mean, and start trusting every Scripture for what they plainly say.  I see many examples of this assumptive Scripture-twisting in the Church and I've argued that it is the primary reason divisions exist within Christianity.  I've written a lot about the need for faithful, comprehensive exegesis in regards to the...

    The following is 'an' essay on Luke 21, as relating to The Rapture of Believers and Jesus's Prophecy for Jerusalem. Another thread is stuck where this would have been posted as a response. I'll ping the freepers who might have interest. The essay is long, so it will be divided into to posts, the body of the thread then the body of comments. Before setting to this post, I listened repeatedly to Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21, having gone to bed listening to Matthew 24 from the Andrew Scourby reading of the King James Bible. Much diverging opinion...
  • Trump And Putin Meet On 7/7/17: Another Coincidence?

    07/09/2017 9:12:09 AM PDT · by SubMareener · 24 replies
    Today is July 7, 2017 (7/7/17) in the Hebrew year 5777. Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin are meeting in Hamburg, Germany today. Today is also 77 days from the Feast of Trumpets and the Revelation 12 Sign (see here). While Trump and Putin meet today, Putin is exactly 777 months old to the day (see here). Also, today is exactly 5777 days from September 11, 2001 (see here). Again, remember that we are in Hebrew year 5777. And remember that Trump was inaugurated when he was exactly 70 years, 7 months, and 7 days old and was born 700 days...

    Facebook ^ | July 4, 2017 | Charles Meek
    As soon as you perceive that the time for the rapture may be near, please do the following in context with Matthew 24 (since we must maintain our scriptural foundation): 1. Locate the nearest mountain. (If you are in Kansas, sorry, but you are in serious trouble.) — "Let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains." 2. Make sure you have a full tank of gas so you can leave your city of residence — "Let those in the city get out." 3. If you are temporarily out of town, think twice about returning home — "Let those...

    Intro Of late many of us have been enthralled with the heavily reported Revelation 12 sign.  As the day nears and the conversations with friends and family grow more pointed and urgent the need for recap and introduction becomes more important.  We intend to have more Left Behind letters on Unsealed, but here is a good primer. There is much in prophecy, in the precision of creation and the precision of the Word that screams that God is who He says He is.  This blog is just a very light sparing overview of a few highlights.  I have provided...

    Billy Graham Evangelistic Association et al. ^ | June 19, 2017 | RightTackle 44
    If and when the Rapture of the Church occurs and Christians are spirited off the face of the earth to Heaven, how will the secular governments and media explain the phenomenon? Millions of people will suddenly be gone from the societies and populations of the earth. Many who thought or said that they were Christians, will still be here. No born-again Christians will be here. The Billy Graham article is cited to provide information.
