Now many of my Christian friends believe in a secret rapture, a taking away of all born again believers in a flash, in a twinkling of an eye when the trumpet sounds. They believe it will happen before the final wars even start, and way before the Armageddon war, because God has not destined Christians for his wrath.They believe in a seven year period called the great tribulation and they will be gone before that period even starts. Numerous rapture movies and books like Tim LaHayes series of Left Behind books and movies have convinced them.
Still many other Christians believe in exactly the same thing, well..almost, but believe it will transpire at the end of the age or end of time after all the wars and especially the final war called the Armageddon war. They believe there is only One Second Coming of Jesus and most will not make it through all the wars alive and that only a remnant will actually be here to witness Jesus coming in the clouds because of the great persecution coming in the “New World Order” and the mandatory obedience to the one world government system requiring a mark on the hand or forehead to be able to buy or sell in the coming one world government system.
And then there are still others who believe the catching away or Rapture will happen in the middle of the seven year tribulation period. But all three groups believe Jesus is coming back again just like He said He would. Amazing all three groups think their method is correct but unfortunately this has caused some non-fellowship among them even to the point of anger, name calling and cutting off of all communication with each other. Sadly this is true but not as bad as it used to be.
There is a war going on right now and that war is between “Good and Evil” between the sons and daughters of the God and sons and daughters of Satan. “ it’s ramping up pretty fast now and trouble is here and will only get worse. All true Christians need to have each other’s back, that is those who are born again and they know it and who believe Jesus is the only begotten Son of God who took our punishment on the cross and shed His blood to wash away our sins and have been baptized. These true believers regardless of church domination must come together, unite and fight the good fight of faith, Protestants and Catholics and Orthodox, all who are born again who worship the King of Kings Jesus. Big trouble is coming, read your bible and see for yourself.
Now my opinion on Jesus return is this: I believe there is only ONE second coming not two because that’s bible. I believe it happens all simultaneously. He comes like a thief in the night, but the Bible explicitly says not to us true believers. “But you are not in darkness that that day should overtake you like a thief.” I believe Jesus comes at the last trumpet, and when is that? After everything has taken place. I believe the seven years of tribulation is not seven years at all but three and a half years and that wrath during that time is the devils wrath on the world and especially Christians. Great wars will happen during this period along with plagues and sickness and total lawlessness just like in the days of Noah. I believe AI or artificial intelligence will play a significant role in the wickedness and Debauchery at the end of the age and millions will be fooled and deceived and even possessed by AI in virtual reality.
From the Old Testament through the New Testament the writers speak of “The Day of The Lord” when the Most High, our Father in Heaven will bring wrath and destruction as never ever seen before or ever will to the earth and the wicked. It is just before this that the “Rapture Occurs” and all the Saints escape including the remnant one third of Jews who turn to Jesus Christ as He returns almost simultaneously with “The Day of the Lord.” This earth will be burned up, read it. The new Jerusalem comes down on the new earth not this earth, read it again. The New Jerusalem is the Bride, we are His body, read it all in Revelation.
Finally, this will make many of you very uncomfortable because you have been programmed over the years in America. The rest of the world gets it. What is with this worship of Israel and Jerusalem and even the Jewish people? Have you lost your minds because of false teachers? Many of you really need to repent! We don’t worship Israel, we worship Jesus Christ! We don’t worship even Jerusalem, we worship Jesus Christ! If you have been sucked up into this mess, repent! We don’t hang the “Star of David” in our churches or around our necks, we hang the cross of Jesus! Who has bewitched You? We pray for the Jews to come to know the truth through Jesus but they are just as and even in many cases more wicked than America or the UK or other nations. If you witness on the streets in Israel you’ll be thrown in jail. Israel is also the number one destination of homosexuals partying every year in Tel Aviv but no one wants to talk about that. They want your money that’s it. All the groups visiting bring in big bucks. Israel and Jerusalem are historical sites not to be worshipped! We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and salvation of all just like we should be doing for every country and people. Many of you need to stop listening to preachers who just hype up Israel over the Gospel of Christ and get your nose into the Bible and learn for yourself. The Holy Spirit is not just the comforter but the teacher and “ will lead you into all truth.” Stop putting Israel before Jesus, only He can save our souls.
So when will Jesus return? When all things are fulfilled most likely not in your lifetime but when the Gospel has been preached in all the world as a witness, then the end shall come, “Right on Time”
