The Islamic Antichrist: Debunked by Chris White

Author Chris White has released a new book which challenges what is becoming the established view on the religion and ethnicity of the Antichrist.  In this book Chris has added some amazing research on the basis for Islamic “holy” writings for which he is to be commended.  Unfortunately his main premise is based on a number of misinterpretations of scripture.   I highly endorse his section on Islamic eschatology but can’t endorse the book as a whole.

The Coming Famine

Author: Are We Ready For Jesus? (May 2015)

Today at lunch time I heard, “I’m starving” “Me too, I’m famished.”  These co-workers had just had a meal less than 5 hours earlier, but our American lifestyle is conditioned to not do without.  A time is coming, however, when all that will change.  What will it be like when Jesus breaks the third seal on the scroll and the Black horse of Revelation rides?

What Does the Bible Say About Erdogan’s Future?

By: Nelson Walters

Author: Are We Ready For Jesus? (May 2015)

Obviously the Bible does not name Recep Tayyip Erdogan, President of Turkey, by name. This post contains speculation on my part.  However, the Bible does have a lot to say about the future of Turkey and one of its leaders known as the “prominent horn.”  If the nation of Turkey and Erdogan stay on their current course, we should be able to surmise a bit from these prophecies. What will Erdogan’s future hold?

Who Will Ride the White Horse?

By: Nelson Walters

There are hundreds of theories about who will ride the white horse of Revelation Chapter 6.  Billy Graham claims it will be the Antichrist,  some say he has already ridden and he was Saddam Hussein, Mohammed or Hitler, Irenaeus thought it would be Jesus, some have pictured Obama on that horse, Muslims attribute this passage their Mahdi, the Hindu see Krishna, and some consider the rider impersonal, that “pestilence” rides the horse.  But can we know with certainty the identity of the rider?  And just as importantly, do we need to know who it is?

Will New Israeli-Palestinian Agreement Signal the Tribulation has Begun?

By: Nelson Walters

Author: Are We Ready For Jesus? (May 2015)

The recent election in Israel had many concerned that the near future might see a new peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians; one that divides the land and launches the Tribulation.  Christians are concerned this could still happen if the leadership of Israel changes.

Daniel 9:27 states that the 70th Week of Daniel (the Tribulation Period) will begin with the Antichrist signing a “covenant with the many” that may be a false peace treaty.  Will a new Israeli-Palestinian agreement signal that the Tribulation has begun?

Is Biblical Bozrah a Future Concentration Camp?

By: Nelson Walters

Author: Are We Ready For Jesus? (May 2015)

Are the “Time of Jacob’s Trouble,” the descendants of Esau, and the ancient city of Bozrah connected to the return of Jesus?  Is Bozrah a future concentration camp? Modern prophecy teachers frequently skip over the teaching about the 4000 year old struggle between Jacob and Esau and how that struggle will end.

Does Jericho Show Us When the Rapture Happens?

 

By: Nelson Walters

Author: Are We Ready For Jesus? (May 2015)

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 A New Iranian Leader Fulfill Daniel 11?

By: Nelson Walters

Author: Are We Ready For Jesus? How to Prepare for His Return (May 2015)

We learned this week that Iranian Supreme Leader  Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is gravely ill.  In September, the world heard that he was suffering from prostrate cancer.  It is assumed that Khamenei’s current health issues are related to the advanced state of his cancer. Even if Khamenei survives this current crisis, it seems likely Iran may choose a successor.  To the world this seems a normal transfer of power, but to Christians everywhere, a new Iranian leader may signal a fulfillment of Daniel 11:2!

GUEST POST: WHO IS THE RESTRAINER?

By:  David Montaigne

Author: Endtimes and 2019 and Antichrist 2016-2019

Nelson: One of our readers asked a question why the restrainer could not be the Church or the Holy Spirit.  This is a common misconception of those who follow the pretribulation rapture theory.  I promised a post to explain this fallacy.  Another reader, fellow author David Montaigne, provided me with this quote from his recent book which did most of my work for me!  So I am posting it as a guest blog.  After David’s fine teaching on who is the restrainer, I add a few thoughts of my own.

Are All 7 Years of Tribulation Pictured in Psalms?

By: Nelson Walters

Author: Are We Ready For Jesus? How to Prepare for His Return (May 2015)

When something is important, really important, God paints multiple pictures of the event throughout scripture.  This was true of the cross and will be true of end time events.  In the upcoming book Are We Ready For Jesus? we look at the five different pictures that scripture gives us of the Cosmic/Earthly Disturbance Event that comes right before the Rapture of the Church.  These five views of the same event provide amazing detail when looked at side-by-side (which we do in the upcoming book.)

If God’s Word painted five pictures of the Cosmic/Earthly Disturbance event, doesn’t it make sense that the seven-year Tribulation will be pictured as well?  A reader of this blog and a fellow Christian writer, Josh Word, recently helped me uncover the 7 year Tribulation pictured in Psalms.  The additional detail it provides is astounding.
