BIBLE PROMISE OF THE RAPTURE
"Take notice! I tell you a mystery (a secret truth, an event decreed by the hidden purpose or counsel of God). We shall not all fall asleep in death, but we shall all be changed (transformed). In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the sound of the last trumpet call. For a trumpet will sound, and the dead in Christ will be raised imperishable (free and immune from decay), and we shall be changed (transformed). For this perishable part of us must put on the imperishable [nature], and this mortal [part of us, this nature that is capable of dying] must put on immortality (freedom from death). And when this perishable puts on the imperishable and this that was capable of dying puts on freedom from death, then shall be fulfilled the Scripture that says, Death is swallowed up (utterly vanquished forever) in and unto victory." [1 Corinthians 15:51-54; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
also we would not have you ignorant, brethren, about those who fall asleep in
death, that you may not grieve for them as the rest do who have no hope beyond
the grave. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God
will also bring with Him through Jesus those who have fallen asleep in death.
For this we declare to you by the Lord's own word, that we who are alive and
remain until the coming of the Lord shall in no way precede into His presence
or have any advantage at all over those who have previously fallen asleep in
Him in death.
"For the Lord Himself will descend
from heaven with a loud cry of summons, with the shout of an archangel, and
with the blast of the trumpet of God. And those
who have departed this life in Christ will rise first. Then we, the living ones
who remain on the earth, shall simultaneously be caught up along with the resurrected
dead in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so always (through the eternity
of the eternities) we shall be with the Lord!
"Therefore comfort and encourage one another with these words." [1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Ibid.]
Note that this verse tells us that the Rapture Trumpet is going to be a "Trumpet of God". Therefore, the angelic trumpets of Revelation cannot be the Rapture Trumpets! This one fact renders many false positions on the Rapture's timing moot and irrelevant!
Jesus' Promise To His Fundamental Church
"Because you have guarded and kept My word of patient endurance [have held fast the lesson of My patience with the expectant endurance that I give you], I also will keep you safe from the hour of trial (testing) which is coming on the whole world to try those who dwell upon the earth." [Revelation 3:10; Ibid]
This latter verse is the one which convinced me that the Rapture of the Church is really going to happen and will happen before the 7-year Tribulation Time Clock begins ticking, an event begun when the "confirming of the covenant" occurs in fulfillment of Daniel 9:27. Do not be deceived on this matter; the 7-year Tribulation Period does not begin when Antichrist arises, but only when he confirms the covenant.
Further, Jesus is promising His Fundamental, uncompromising church that He will keep them from the "hour" of the worldwide Tribulation Period. What struck me so hard one day in 1993 was that this word "hour" is an earthbound term that has no meaning once you get outside of this dimension! For Jesus to fulfill His promise of keeping His Fundamental Church from the "hour" of the Tribulation means that He will have to pull us out of this dimension! Consider some others whom God kept from His judgment:
* Noah was kept from God's judgment by flood, but he passed through the "hour"
* Lot was saved from the fire and brimstone of Sodom but he passed through the "hour"
* Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were personally saved by the Savior in the fiery furnace of King Nebuchadnezzar, but they passed through the "hour" of the trial
The only way in which Jesus can fulfill His promise is to pull His genuinely Born Again believers out of this dimension, just as these wonderful verses, above, promise. No one who disbelieves the Pre-Tribulational Rapture of the Church has ever been able to overcome the obstacle of this one wonderful word, "hour".
Further, the demonic host advising current human leaders have been telling them that, soon after the appearance of "The Christ" -- Antichrist -- many millions of people will suddenly disappear. These "disappeared" people will all have one thing in common, i.e., they will never, ever be able to accept the claims of "The Christ". Therefore, the "Masters of the Logos" has decided to pull these people out of this dimension, put their souls in the Reincarnation Cycle, where they can be trained to accept the New World Order, the Kingdom of Antichrist.
This is the cover story the demonic host has been spinning for over a decade now in order to explain away the Rapture when it does occur. . If the Word of God says the Rapture will keep us from the "hour" of Tribulation, and if the demonic host are preparing their New Age and occult followers to be ready for it soon after The Christ arises, then the Rapture must be true, and it must be before Antichrist "confirms the covenant".
RAPTURE FROM PERSPECTIVE OF AN OLD PREACHER
by J. H. McConkey
Suddenly, in one swift, intense instant, the jubilee moment of the waiting centuries, the descending Lord Himself shall shout. Up from the quiet valley, from sunlit hillsides, from village burying grounds, from the yawning depths of the sea, from the distant battlefields where Christian patriots have laid down their lives, from the jungles of India, from the swamps of Africa, from the islands of the sea, from every lonely spot where His children have passed away in suffering and service, shall the glorified, radiant host spring up "like pyramids of flame;" to meet their coming Lord.
What a vision for tear-stained eyes; what a hope for waiting hearts; what a spur to lagging service!
Caught up? Who can picture it? While men and women walk the busy streets, they shall be caught up! While they bow in the secret chamber of prayer, they shall be caught up! While with burning hearts they ponder the Word that tells of His coming, they shall be caught up! While patient, suffering ones lie on beds of pain, they shall be caught up! While in the graves of the dead, they shall be caught up! And, as the startled world wonders, the only records left shall be that of Enoch's - 'And they walked with God, and were not, for God took them!'
Watch, therefore, for ye know not what hour the Son of Man cometh! We look for no signs. We know of no prophetic event between us and the coming of the Lord. We know not the hour He will come, but we know not any hour in which He may NOT come. It may be years from now; it may be tomorrow; it may be today.
It may be at morn, when the first faint flush of awakening day tints the horizon; it may be at high noon, when the busy world, deaf with the din of traffic, hears not His shout; or it may be at eventide, when the twilight hours are solemnizing the souls of His children with the hush of its own waiting. It matters not; no man knows. But "the Lord is at hand"; "the judge standeth at the door."
Each generation stands in eager expectancy as on the very brink of the mightiest miracle of the miracle-working God since the resurrection of His Son from the dead. And the veil of our mortal flesh trembles under the anticipating touch of Him who may at any moment rend it asunder for the outshining of His glory for the manifestation of the sons of God.
"Wherefore comfort one another with these words."
The next time you are feeling lonely, remember that each day brings the Rapture closer than it was the day before! As you pass through the trials and tribulations of your life, and as you tire of reading the violence and bloodshed of the Daily News, "comfort one another with these words"! Our Blessed Savior knew that the people of the generation that would see His return would endure much agony of spirit, an agony which would be intolerable. Listen:
"All this is but the beginning the early pains of the birth pangs of the intolerable anguish." [Matthew 24:8; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
"For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places; there will be famines and calamities. This is but the beginning of the intolerable anguish and suffering, only the first of the birth pangs." [Mark 13:8; Ibid.]
Rather than being discouraged by these terrible Daily News stories, consider that Bible prophecy is being uniquely fulfilled in front of our incredulous eyes! We need to take our knowledge of how prophecy is being fulfilled in Daily News to a lost and dying world, to give them the precious Gospel message! Go forth, into the highways and byways of your busy life with this message: the news of today demonstrates the reality that "the judge standeth at the door." Salvation is of "Today"!
To soothe your anguished soul, thoughtfully consider the truths in this wonderful
One sweetly solemn thought
Comes to me o'er and o'er:
I am nearer Home today -
Than I ever have been before-
Nearer my Fathers house
Where many mansions be,
Neater the great white throne,
Nearer the crystal sea,
Nearer the bound of life
Where we lay our burdens down,
Nearer leaving the cross,
Nearer gaining the crown!
But lying darkly between,
Winding down through the night,
Is the silent unknown stream
That leads at last to the light.
Oh, if my mortal feet
Have almost gained the brink,
If I am nearer Home
Even today than I think,
Father, perfect my trust;
Let my spirit feel in death
That her feet are firmly set
On the rock of a living Faith
The time is speeding close where the final resolution of all things is at hand, Antichrist will arise out of the smoke and dust of the Third World War, and the Rapture will finally occur. Some Christians may suffer imprisonment and martyrdom as the world passes through this World War III, but every day brings the Rapture closer to reality. Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.

God bless you.
