I was received up into an open heaven through a hole in the clouds.

This dream was given on September 19, 2017. Please note that we understand there are many current eschatological positions. I am not speaking for ANY particular one of them – whether you are a pre, mid, or post tribulation believer, this dream does NOT single out any one particular position. It does not matter, and the Lord made certain of that in the dream. This is simply for all who believe in the rapture itself. “Whoever hath ears to hear, let him hear.” This message is to take to the Lord in prayer.… [Continue reading...]

Fifteen things that must happen before the Lord returns

Many Christians today are looking for the return of the Lord and the rapture to bail them out of the troubles of this life, but God’s word reveals He is not returning for a frightened, powerless Church running for their lives, but a glorious Church without spot or wrinkle, holy and blameless. (Ephesians 5:27) It’s not hard to see the Church today is not there yet.

There is a popular teaching the return of the Lord is imminent, that He could come back at any moment, but that contradicts many Bible prophecies that must be fulfilled before He returns.… [Continue reading...]

Prophetic Dream Reveals the Rapture Amidst Great Storms

A few nights ago, the Lord spoke to me in a dream. In an audible voice, I heard God say, “It does not matter where you live. The storm can NOT touch you.”

For my family and me, this has been a topic of concern because I live on the coast of North Carolina.

In this dream, I was suddenly standing on the second floor of my home with my husband and our 1 1/2-year-old daughter as huge wind gusts of incredible force tore through our home.… [Continue reading...]

I Shot Upwards Into the Sky and the Clouds Parted

Dreams. Visions. The words have a mystical quality, hinting at things mysterious, wondrous and prophetic. Dreams and visions indicate that there is more going on here than meets the eye.

In the Book of Joel, God declared that He would pour out His Holy Spirit in a mighty way, making prophets of ordinary people. God promised dreams and visions to people of all walks of life. Sons and daughters. Old men, young men and women. In that future time, a prophet would not be a wild man crying out in the wilderness, but someone as common as your next door neighbor.… [Continue reading...]

Six Reasons Why the Rapture Happens Before the Seven Trumpets

The title of this post might appear to contradict the scriptures telling us the rapture happens at the last trumpet. However, this post shows the last trumpet is not the seventh trumpet of Revelation 11.

Although the seventh trumpet sounds like the most likely candidate for the last trumpet, it cannot be because it contradicts other scriptures identified in this post. Since the scriptures cannot contradict the scriptures there must be another explanation. So for now, let’s look at six reasons why the rapture happens before the seven trumpets.… [Continue reading...]

No Separate Rapture Coming for the Church of Philadelphia

The promise made by the Lord Jesus to the church of Philadelphia has been often misunderstood.
“Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.” (Revelation 3:10)
This Greek word translated as “keep” is tereo, which means to watch over, guard, keep an eye on. It is the same word used in John 17 when Jesus prayed,
“I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should KEEP them from the evil one.” (John 17:15)
Notice how Jesus did not pray to “remove” them from the world but to “guard, watch over, preserve, protect, keep an eye on” them while in the world.… [Continue reading...]

How to Believe in a Pre-Trib Rapture

Have you ever seen those guys that can bend over so far they can almost stick their head up their behind? That’s what we have to do to believe in a pre-trib rapture.

Pre-tribbers take scriptures that are obviously describing the rapture and claim it is not about the rapture. Then they take scriptures that make no mention of the rapture and claim it is all about the rapture. They are spreading confusion and need to stop.

One of their favorite explanations is the idea that the church is raptured in Revelation 4:1 and then never seen again until Revelation 19, which they claim proves we are all out of here before the tribulation starts.… [Continue reading...]

Could 2032 Be the Year of the Lord’s Return?

There is such a great contrast between the world we see today and the one described in the end time prophecies of the Bible. If the Lord is coming soon, then dramatic changes in our world are coming even sooner. The purpose of this post is to consider how soon he might be returning, so we can understand how soon to expect other changes that we know are coming.

The Lord is not trying to conceal the timing of his return.… [Continue reading...]

The Lord is NOT Returning Like a Thief in the Night

I have heard pre-trib teachers misquote the Scriptures by claiming the Lord will return like a thief in the night while conveniently leaving out the fact that the Bible says just the opposite.

They make this claim to support their false doctrine that the rapture could happen at any moment, which is false because it contradicts many Scriptures telling us specific events that must happen before the rapture. See my previous post, Ten Things that Must Happen Before the Rapture.… [Continue reading...]

The Timing of the Rapture is Revealed by the Great Multitude

The timing of the rapture is revealed by the great multitude of people whom John saw standing before the throne of God in heaven.

John described a multitude so great in number that no one could count them. That’s a lot of people! They came from every nation, tribe, people, and tongue. All of them were wearing white robes and worshiping God. (Revelation 7:9-10).

The elder explained to John these people have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb (Revelation 7:13-14).… [Continue reading...]

Eight Proofs the Rapture Happens On the Day of the Lord

The Bible reveals the rapture happens at the start of the day of the Lord.

This post is the fifth part of my previous post, “Five Proofs the Rapture Comes Before the Wrath of God.” So if you missed that post, please read it before starting this one.

If we count days as 24-hour periods, we could say the rapture occurs on the same day that the day of the Lord begins. However, if we count days as 1,000-year periods like the Lord does, the rapture marks the end of the sixth day and the end of the 6,000-year dominion of man. … [Continue reading...]

Five Proofs the Rapture Comes Before the Wrath of God

Here are five reasons why I believe the rapture comes before the wrath of God is poured out at the end of this age.

1. GOD HAS PROMISED TO DELIVER US

The wrath of God is not for innocent people, but for unrepentant sinners who have rejected him. Everyone who has received Jesus Christ and turned away from sin is innocent before God because the blood of Jesus the Messiah paid their debts in full. So God has promised to deliver His people from the wrath to come:

Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.

Corrie Ten Boom: Beware of False Teaching of Pre-Tribulation Rapture

During World War 2 Corrie Ten Boom and her family were arrested by the Germans for the crime of helping Jewish people hide. She was sent to a concentration camp and endured great hardships, but she survived.

In 1974 Corrie Ten Boom wrote the letter shown below to warn Christians about the false teaching of the pre-tribulation rapture. This teaching is very popular in America, even though there is no scriptural basis for it. Many believers have bought into it because they have heard it taught by their pastor or by other Christian leaders, but we must study the scriptures for ourselves.… [Continue reading...]

Ten Things that Must Happen Before the Rapture

I have heard Christian leaders teach the rapture could happen at any moment including right now. That sounds great, but it overlooks the scriptures telling of other events that must happen first. Until those things happen the rapture cannot happen. Regardless of what our pastor or anyone else says about it, we must rely on the scriptures as the final authority.

God’s Promise To Deliver Us

Just mentioning anything that must happen before the rapture sets off alarms for some people because they have been taught the rapture will deliver them out of here before anything bad happens.… [Continue reading...]
