We Will Be Changed In a Moment

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye” we will be changed. Most Christians believe this, but have you given thought to what it means? Spiritually it will mean a sinless state worthy of being in God’s presence. It will also mean immortality and the right to eat of the Tree of Life. But what will we look like physically? We had a request from a reader to speculate on what “changed” might mean and what our resurrection bodies might be like.

Ruins of Sodom are an Example for Us

Recent archaeological discoveries near the coast of the Dead Sea have revealed the remains of five ancient cities we generically refer to as Sodom and Gomorrah.  Peter and Jude tell us that the remains of these cities are left to us as examples for us to live godly lives.  As our nation and our world continue to run toward the depravity of those ancient cities, we need to examine this teaching in depth.

Does Jericho Show Us When the Rapture Happens?

The Early Church Fathers realized that the conquest of Jericho presented an amazing “picture” of 70th Week of Daniel and the Rapture.  The Modern Church has forgotten this important teaching, possibly because it doesn’t like what the picture says about the timing of the Rapture. Does Jericho show us when the Rapture happens?

WILL THERE BE A PRE-TRIB RAPTURE?

Will there be a pre-trib rapture? We can know the answer to the question with certainty.  The timing of the rapture hinges on what the verse  2 Thessalonians 2: 3 really says.  Does the Greek words ho aostasia in this passage mean “rapture” or “apostasy. ”  All other rapture arguments are secondary to this one.

ARE WE LIVING IN THE DAYS OF LOT?

Jesus told us his return would be like the Days of Lot.  Looking around the USA at the LGBT agenda that is running amuck today, I have to ask, “are we in the Days of Lot already?”  What can we and should we be doing as Christians?

FOUR HORSEMEN, JERICHO: ONE CONSISTENT PICTURE of the TRIBULATION

THE FOUR HORSEMEN

The four horsemen of the Apocalypse (Rev. 6:1-8) are probably one of the most enigmatic prophecies in all of scripture.  Everyone seems to have ventured a guess as to their identity.  In this post I am going to propose a theory that is consistent with the Old and New Testaments and integrates the Jewish Feasts.

Does Revelation 3:10 Prove a Pre-Trib. Rapture?

Because you have kept the word of my perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. (Rev. 3: 10 NASB)

One of our brothers who is reading through this website had a question about this particular verse and what it says about the timing of the rapture.  I decided to write a post on it so I could share my thoughts on what it says and what it doesn’t say about that topic.

Vultures and a Corpse

In the middle of the Olivet Discourse is a strange illustration about vultures and a corpse that the church does not fully understand. Matthew 24:28 (NASB) says, “Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.” It’s my opinion that whenever we don’t comprehend a passage it is likely that a mistaken theology is blocking our understanding. That is the case with this verse. The Church does not grasp this illustration because it refers to the resurrection that will occur after the great tribulation. Their view that the resurrection and rapture occur prior to the tribulation prevents them from seeing what this verse truly means.
