Latest from Unsealed | Pre-Trib Rapture Reasons

Image
It is always a good day when Unsealed.org puts out a new article. Their latest from Gary is him listing his Top 10 reasons he believes in a Pre-Trib Rapture. He has a pretty good list of reasons and it is always interesting hearing which reasons have convinced others of the Blessed Hope (Titus 2:13).
http://www.unsealed.org/2017/06/in-moment-10-reasons-i-believe-in-pre.html

There is one item Gary didn't include that I feel should be considered by all....The Jewish Wedding Pattern.  I have put 2 links below and a video that illustrate this view, but there is much more available online.  When you see this pattern and potential fulfillment at the rapture many verses such and John 14:2-3 jump off the page. Below is an excerpt from bridalcovenant.com:


The Rapture and the Jewish Wedding
There is an interesting parallel between a Jewish wedding and the Rapture. Only a Pre-Tribulation Rapture will fit into this scenario.

Secular Investigation into Virgo Cover-Up

Image
I have found this black box cover-up story very strange ever since I first saw it a while back.  As you probably know, its position is in the exact place of the Red Dragon from Rev 12.  I found it amazing to discover (thanks to Matthew M on Facebook) that Secureteam10, which is an "underground" secular news channel with nearly 1 million subscribers, just did a video on this.  The host was even relating it to the Bible and the Revelation 12 Sign and went as far as reading scripture! I am not going to embed the video because their demonic logo is on the screen the whole time....plus the tail end of the video also looks to be a very bizarre/ungodly segment.  But if you have put on your spiritual armor and can look past those things you just might be amazed that this Sign was just shared with nearly 1 million secular people.

Regardless of whether you think this Infrared thing that is covered up by NASA and Google is related to Rev12 or if its just a coincidence, I must say that …

Day nor Hour, Date Setting, and the Feast of Trumpets

Image
The video in this post addresses the conflict between the Great Sign of Rev 12 on or very near the Feast Of Trumpets and the text saying that no man knows the day nor the hour. It is very in-depth and received the praise of Daniel Matson with the following comment:
"Well done. This is indeed the hurdle that has taken out so many believers. I hope this video will help eliminate that hurdle!" Personally, I have found that verses such as Matt 24:36 or Mark 13:32 are often used as sledge hammers to pound down anybody watching closely for the Lords Return. Most of you have probably had those verses quoted back to you when explaining the Rev 12 Sign to someone.  They don't seem to get that we mere humans cannot change the fact that this biblical alignment happens on a specific day. I've even tried explaining the sign using generalities avoiding the 9/23 day altogether. Now what do you think are the very first questions asked when I do that?
"When is it? When is thi…

Don Koenig Changes His View on the Rev12 Sign

Image
You have got to check out this article: Perspectives on Trump and the Revelation 12 sign of Sept 23, 2017 http://www.thepropheticyears.com/enddepravity/perspectives-on-trump-and-the-revelation-12-sign-of-sept-23-2017.html

Don was asked this question by a commenter, Nathan:
Don, I mentioned the Sept. 23rd sign in a comment in your last post and your reply seemed to imply that you didn’t think there was much to this sign. It appears that maybe you have changed your mind on this? Here are Don's own words in response:
I thought the sign in the heavens occurring meant something, but I was not sure what that was. I have done a lot of checking this out in the last week or two. I changed my view that the man child was Jesus. I now think it is talking about the Church. That changes the equation. I now think the sign and what is said in Revelation 12 about the man child is referring to the Rapture of the Church. I obviously have not changed my view that the Rapture is not likely to occur on…

Attempted Debunking by Answers in Genesis

Image
Answers in Genesis (AiG) is a very popular ministry which generally deals with topics regarding Creationism and scientific defenses of the Bible.  I have known of them for quite some time and much of their work is excellent and usually pretty reliable.  They have a large following and for many of their readers anything they say is often considered an open and shut case.  And as you may have guessed, they have opened and quickly shut the case of the Revelation 12 Sign with a debunking attempt which is getting a lot of buzz now that it has been shared on Facebook.  Here is a link to the article and a list of some of their key points:
Leo actually has 10 stars, not 9The sign isn't visible to anybodyHe has known about this for 15 yearsIt's only popular now because of YouTube Here are a couple of excerpts.
It was more than 15 years ago that I first heard the suggestion that this annual event might be a fulfillment of Revelation 12 in some particular year. Since then, interest in th…

Comparing 2017 with 1988 | Newest from Unsealed

Image
In 1988 I was 7 years old. I had no idea what the Rapture was and I surely had no clue that Edgar C. Whisenant had written a book about it. (I'm not sure if I could even read at that point!) But now in 2017 any talk of this sign by skeptics is hit with the charge of being just like 88 Reasons the Rapture Will Be In 1988.  Is this a fair criticism?  Or is it just a bullying tactic?

Well I never would have thought of this but Gary (bless his heart) over at Unsealed.org took the time to read the book and compare the reasons given with the evidence we see surrounding 2017 and the Revelation 12 sign.  While reading, he found that there were really only 19 separate arguments for 1988 diluted throughout the book... and most of it is flimsy at best.  It's a fascinating study looking back and seeing how such little evidence packaged in such a catchy title caused so much stir...even to this day.

Better yet, Gary lays out the reasons we see why THIS YEAR seems so promising.  The evidenc…

Revelation 12 What Does Scripture Tell Us?

Image
Adam over at the Parable of the Vineyard YouTube Channel does a great job going through many of the Scripture Passages that seem to tie into the Rev12 Sign.  I need to take all of these verses and compile them into one place for easy reference as the evidence is overwhelming when looked at together...

Generation Z, Rev12 and Sharing the Gospel

Image
Baby Boomers.
Generation X.
Generation Y.
Generation Z.   Just think about that...

So I was driving home over lunch today and listening to Christian talk radio.  I "happened" to tune in during the tail end of a interview titled this:  Reaching the next generation of believers.  James Emery White was being interviewed.  He is the author of a book titled: Meet Generation Z: Understanding and Reaching the New Post-Christian World

At the very end of the interview a very basic question sent in from a listener was asked.   The question and answer were so simple, but something following it hit me like a ton of bricks.

Question: 
"Where did they get the name Generation Z?"

Answer: 
"Well, after the Baby Boomers we had Generation X.  The next one they called Generation Y.  So they decided to continue on and call this one Generation Z."

Make sense to me...

But then, in an almost prophetic slip of the tongue the host states this:
"and it may be the last one&q…

We Are To "Watch" But What Does That Really Mean?

Image
I have personally found that some people who I have shared the Rev12 Sign with don't even realize that Jesus has commanded us to WATCH for His coming.  Therefore, conveying that command is an important part of them taking Eschatology seriously.

So with that in mind, I pray this outstanding summary of Spiritual Watching will give you more insight into your own duties as a Christian and perhaps a little more Biblical truth to help wake up others who are asleep.

This article was shared in the comments section of a recent post.  Thank you Annabel!

Passing the Torch

Image
This article by Jeff at Unsealed is well worth your time if you missed it when it was originally posted. Here is an excerpt:
In this post we will take a look at an Old Testament precedent for a future Church-to-Israel ministry transfer found in 2 Kings 2; then we will venture over to 2 Thessalonians 2 and examine Paul's insight on a transition between two temples; finally, we'll conclude with the book of Revelation, where the apostle John provides a brief yet enlightening glimpse into the transfer of authority from the Church to the two super-witnesses of Israel.http://www.unsealed.org/2017/03/passing-torch-ministry-transfer-from.html

Personal Thoughts Regarding Greg Lauer's Article...

Image
If you haven't read it yet, I encourage you to check out the article linked in yesterdays post:
Revelation 12, The Exit Sign and Imminence

In it Greg Lauer expertly dissects important issues that have risen as the Rev12 Sign's momentum has grown.  Greg, who at his site (alittlestrength.com) puts out one in-depth article each month, spends a great deal of effort reconciling the doctrine of imminence with a certain 'great' sign happening this fall that seems to strongly point to the rapture of the church.

The article took me the better part of a day to get through as we had many family activities and it is quite lengthy.  It so worth it though, and it was so well done I wanted to soak up every word.  So let me say this in this fast paced, instant gratification culture;
Do not let it's length deter you from what may possibly be the most edifying and encouraging work to date regarding the complex issues this sign has created in our little "end times" communit…

Colossians 3:2-4

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Philippians 3:20-21

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
