Bible prophecy. Can the ordinary every day pew warming Christian understand these passages of Scripture that make up one third of the Bible’s text? “No,” so many prophetic “experts” seem to say. Their allegorical commentaries that have flooded Christian airwaves and bookstores over the years read and sound like parroted last-days Rapture squak. “Go away, don’t
Before Jesus Christ’s return to the earth, the Bible predicts a resurrection and a rapture. Why? And what are they? This is a perplexing question the Bible answers fully. The apostle Paul writes the simutaneous events will happen at the “last” trumpet.

Some teach the “great city” the Babylonian harlot represents will be a physical metropolis such as Amsterdam or New York to receive the judgments and plagues described in John’s prophetic text. But a studied hermeneutic of her vision reveals there is more to the harlot’s coming than a central locale. In fact, if you look closely, you will realize that she is not a central place, and that she is already here.
Isn’t it interesting how Jesus says in Matthew 6:8 that our Heavenly Father knows what we need before we ask Him, but that we are to ask anyway. …Jesus invites us to receive God’s promises from Him through asking, seeking, and knocking.

Only Bible prophecy carries the weight of God’s spiritual foretelling of people, places, and things. You won’t find the revelation in any other “religious” book than the Bible. God’s Old Testament prophets had much to say about the “Day of the Lord,” and recorded several revealing glimpses of the Millennial and Eternal ages. But they had really very little to say about our Gentile age of the church. In fact, except for Jeremiah, they seemed to look right through it. And his “new heart” revelation was inconclusive until the advent of the church…
This site’s teaching article, Apocalypse Now!, shows the key event connections of Jesus’ Matthew 24 eschatology and His opening of the six seals in Revelation 6. When you understand the inductive study method outlined in biblical hermeneutics, you can pick up on the chronological ascent of Holy Spirit’s revelation in Scripture. Here are those chronological connections again…
“Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22 “With pestilence and with blood I will enter into judgment with him; and I will rain on him and on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, a torrential rain, with hailstones, fire and brimstone. 23 “I will magnify Myself, sanctify Myself, and make Myself known in the sight of many nations; and they will know that I am the Lord .”‘

MOSCOW (AP) — President Vladimir Putin has scrambled thousands of troops and hundreds of warplanes across southwestern Russia for large-scale military drills intended to test the troops’ readiness amid continuing tensions with the West. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that military units were put on combat alert early Monday, marking the launch of the exercise
If John’s revelation of Israel in Revelation 12 presents the best working picture of New Testament prophetic symbolism, the best example of key word connection is in Christ’s Matthew 24 prophesied “last days signs” and His opening of Revelation’s infamous seals. There is no more controversial section of John’s Revelation than this one in chapter 6 where he witnesses Christ’s opening of the seals. To misinterpret them at this point of Revelation’s eschatology is to misinterpret the rest of the book.Sword of the Spirit
There is a miraculous power revealed in the lives of two peculiar figures in the Book of Revelation, “the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth” (11:4). …Fire spews out of their mouths to devour God’s last-days enemies as they preach God’s Word with miracles following.

Ezekiel 38 speaks of a “Gog” led last-days Israel invasion that will include Persia, the modern nation of Iran, and most of the current middle east. I cite two possibilities of who the Eschaton’s
I’m still not sure how I got the nod to chair our little church’s pulpit committee last summer. When I asked what led to my choice, I was simply told, “It’s God’s will.”
I’d been at our little two hundred member congregation three years and served on the board a month. I really liked Pastor Giff, but he finally got fed up with us after serving at Menlo Park Spirit Filled Praise and Worship Fellowship for five years. I suppose all the sniping, griping, and pastor’s wife bashing can get to you after a while. He said he was heading to the mission field. Bosnia, I think. I guess we were pretty bad.
Upward draw rays blinding light; The startled host through fiery height; Vaporous souls Careen black space; Streaking trails Of embered trace; Northward dart the faithful few- On glistening waves of golden hue- O glorious change- Flux flesh away- Bone to spirit- Light from clay- The table is spread; The linen is new; The mystery
