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?

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.

WILL THERE BE A PRE-TRIB RAPTURE?

By: Nelson Walters

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

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.

How to Get Ready For Jesus’ Return

Those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut.  (Matt. 25: 10 NASB)

Being ready for Jesus’ return should be the central focus of the Church as we approach the “Time of the End.” (See ARE WE LIVING IN THE TIME OF THE END?)  But what does ready mean and how are we going to do accomplish it?

Jesus gave us many specifics on how to prepare.  I assembled them in the soon-to-be-released book, Are We Ready For Jesus? What takes a book length treatment to discuss, we can’t go over in a single post.  But how do we even get the word out to the Church Universal that is currently fast asleep?  Has Jesus already given us the model in Luke 9 and 10?

ARE WE LIVING IN THE DAYS OF LOT?

By: Nelson Walters

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

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?

With the advent of ISIS, threats from Iran and Russia, the specter of Ebola, and rising unrighteousness, people all over the globe are wondering, “are we living in the ‘time of the end?”  The Bible, of course, has the answer for us.
