Rapture Timing and Endtimes Prophecy

Watchman Warning: Signs now signal the Endtimes are unfolding to bring history’s termination (with the Tribulation and then the Rapture at Christ's Coming) and divine discipline on our falling away (especially US) churches, how the U.S. is found indirectly in endtimes prophecy, and have all remaining people make formal decisions to accept or deny the Gospel.

Introduction to Bible Prophecy

Benefits: Know how God designed how the endtimes will unfold in a sequence patterned after what happened to the Old Testament Jews. Learn how the United States is found indirectly in prophecy. Learn what we will experience as the endtimes come, and what we should be doing now to prepare for them. They will come in a whirlwind without warning. We should be warned to train our children and youth with great urgency because the coming world government will take them from the parents and satanically educate them by the state without the parents being able to do anything about it.

Understanding Prophecy: When one does a serious study of Bible prophecy, one soon finds that there are more than six views with conflicting tenets that have remained side by side without resolution by the overall Church. We have taken an approach that begins with God's Plan for history and then determined how prophecy fits into the end phase of God's Plan. This approach brings resolution.

With this approach, our view is that prophecy can be best understood when one sees that Daniel's seventieth week is history when Christ brought the New Covenant, Revelation's events unfold in a pattern sequence, all believers in Christ are the Church, Israel as a covenant nation (not individual Jews) is gone forever, there is a future Tribulation, there are no ethnic divisions in Christ and all are one in Christ, the Rapture occurs at Christ's Second Coming, and the 1000 years come during Christ's Second Coming.

Key Aspects and Orientation to the Understanding of Bible Prophecy

My Testimony: How I Discovered and Developed my Bible Prophecy View: The Imprtance and Impact of Having the Correct Biblical View. This is my personal testimony for how God had me develop and discover my view of Bible Prophecy. I have taken a systematic approach by first discovering God's Plan for history and then showing how prophecy and the spiritual warfare fit into His plan. My view is based on finding the Bible's harmonization of over 40 doctrines taking many inputs from the published literature. It shows how Revelation's events unfold and why. We must be prepared in advance of the soon-coming endtimes. (7 pages)

KEY MESSAGES: (1) Many doctrines (over 10) teach unambiguously the Rapture comes after the Tribulation (interpretation errors used for a Pre-Tribulation Rapture are presented); (2) The sequence by which God is using now to terminate history, using the United States (and how the United States is found indirectly in the Bible); (3) The current falling away of our American churches is a prime cause of the coming endtimes Tribulation that is used for divine discipline; (4) Signs now signal most loudly that the endtimes Tribulation can come any time like a sudden earthquake - how our churches (and families) must urgently ready themselves; (5) The situation with national Israel today since the Cross (Daniel’s seventieth week is definitely history).

Orientation to Bible Prophecy This summary presents the many aspects and elements that are involved in the understanding and presentation of Bible prophecy. Those not familiar with prophecy should begin here.

Summary of Endtimes Prophecy This summary presents the overview for how the endtimes will unfold. It shows the Rapture will be Post-Tribulational and the 1000 years come during Christ's Second Coming. The Church will go through the Tribulation because her falling away is partly responsible for the Tribulation coming according to the endtimes pattern sequence. Signs now signal the Tribulation can come at any time. (18 pages)

Rapture Timing – The Sequence for How the Endtimes Unfold

Must Read Document by All Church Leaders:  Doctrines That Teach Unambiguously a Post Tribulation Rapture   This document presents the Biblical big picture of the Jewish situation and many doctrines that singly and in combination teach "unambiguously" a Post Tribulation Rapture. Leaders should prepare their people now for soon entering the endtimes Tribulation. (7 pages 6/27/2013)

Over 20 Bible doctrines teach "unambiguously" the Church will go through the endtimes Tribulation to be raptured afterwards. (See our website document.)  (10 pages)

My View:  The Pattern View of Prophecy - The Many Doctrines of Prophecy Show Clearly the Rapture Will Come Post-Tribulational and the 1000 Years During Christ's Second Coming This detailed report presents and develops the prophetic doctrines from Scripture. When over 40 doctrines are considered and finding the Bible harmonization, it becomes clear that the Rapture can only come Post-Tribulational and the 1000 years come during Christ's Second Coming. It shows that the events of Revelation unfold in a sequence similarly as to what happened to the Old Testament Jews. THIS REPORT IS NECESSARY READING IF ONE WANTS TO UNDERSTAND ENDTIMES PROPHECY. This report shows clearly that Dispensational Theology with its Pre-tribulational Rapture and Jewish golden-age Millennium is not taught in Scripture. (52 pages) The same Document in Parts: Endtimes Prophecy Part One (Introduction 9 pages); Endtimes Prophecy Part Two (How Revelation Unfolds 7 pages; Endtimes Prophecy Part Three (Rapture Doctrines 19 pages); Endtimes Prophecy Part Four (The 1000 Years, Life's Impacts 17 pages)

The Situation with National Israel and Interpretation Errors that Wrongly Establish the Pre-tribulation Rapture View

Understanding the Endtimes Biblical Jewish Situation and What We Must Do Now As the Endtimes Unfold This report shows how the Jews relate to God throughout history, including now in these endtimes. Jews and Gentiles, can have all of what God offers all believers particularly gaining maximum maturity in Christ so they can know and relate to God. God has not forsaken the Jews in any way. (20 Pages)

Summary Report: Interpretation Errors Showing the Pre-tribulation Rapture View is Incorrect and is not Taught in Scripture This report discusses the major issues in defining endtimes prophecy and lists over 15 interpretive errors in the tenets used to develop the Pre-Tribulation Rapture View of endtimes prophecy. In doing so, doctrines are presented that clearly show a Post-Tribulation Rapture. With both the errors and correct doctrines, the report clearly shows the Pre-Tribulation Rapture View is not taught in the Bible. This document is must reading by all prophecy students so that we will be sure to mature, brief, and prepare our people in Christ before the Tribulation comes. (14 pages)
