Of course, that issue is fervently discussed only among those believers who believe in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the church. Continue reading Who is the end-time Restrainer?

Tribulation cannot begin until some human entity is removed from the earth

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

 More biblical light regarding end-time events and the catching away of the church. One more Scripture passage those experts seem to have overlooked is Luke 17:26-30. Teaching on last-days events, the Lord said plainly that, just as it was in the days of both Noah and Lot, so would it be “in the days of the Son of man.” Noah had been warning the people that a flood was coming upon the earth, but they apparently thought he was off mentally. After all, one building a boat nowhere near a body of water capable of floating it was obviously unstable in his mind, so his prophecy of an event never seen before seemed more like a fantasy than something to be worried about.

Ron Craig: More on end time events and prophecy

Solomon’s Temple

All seventy sevens of years Gabriel informed Daniel about have to do with the Jews. If those first seven and sixty-two concern Israel, then that seventieth seven does as well! Why those two first divisions, which come short of seventy? Seven and sixty-two equal sixty-nine. The first division obviously refers to those years from the command by King Cyrus to rebuild the destroyed Jewish temple until its completion; equalling seven sevens or 49 years. After that, there would span an additional sixty-two sevens—434 years—before their Messiah would be “cut off”; referring obviously to our Lord’s crucifixion. Continue reading Ron Craig: More on end time events and prophecy

STEVE FLOWERS: WE ARE NOW A REPUBLICAN STATE

Alabama’s leading Political Columnist Steve Flowers

A few last thoughts and observations on our November 6 General Election in Alabama.

Our new 55th Governor looked and sounded more like the old Kay Ivey, than the one we have seen the past few years and during the campaign. She was vibrant, succinct to the point, had a perfectly timed and unscripted victory speech. Her green jacket was becoming. She will be a good governor. She will tackle the tough issues the state must face in the next four years, especially our infrastructure needs. Continue reading STEVE FLOWERS: WE ARE NOW A REPUBLICAN STATE

The Church is divided over Tribulation

The church is actually divided over the second major end-time teaching error, regarding whether or not the church will go through the Tribulation time spoken of in Jeremiah, Daniel, Matthew, Mark and Luke, and in some of Paul’s letters, and finally in the book of Revelation. The prime supposed evidence the experts use to convince themselves and others that the church will definitely go through the Tribulation is the coincidental use of the word trumpet. At the last trumpet, Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:52, the dead will be raised, and we the still-living will be changed (get our glorified bodies). Continue reading The Church is divided over Tribulation
