The End Times

The basis of my faith lies intirely on Jesus Christ and the End Times. Many people denounce the prophecy of Last Days depicted in Revelations, Daniel, and so many other books of the Bible. He is the Beginning and the End. There must be an end. What kind of book or tv show has no end? The greatest story ever told is in the Bible. Starting with the forming of the universe to Kingdom Come. Prophecy shall no doubt occur. Maybe not this generation or the next, but I know it will happen in due time. In Matthew 24, the disciples ask Jesus ‘ tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the earth? ‘ He goes on descibing what the Tribulation Period will be like. False prophets decieving many, nation rising against nation, persicution of new believers during this time are foretold by Jesus Himself. In verse 34, He goes on to say ” ‘ Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled ‘ ” A verse used by athiest and believers alike to denounce the coming of the End Times. This verse alone would arouse suspicion. Many generations have passed since Jesus said these words. But earlier in the chapter, in verse 15, it sheds some light on this verse. Verse 34 seems to reflect back on this one, for it mentions Daniel. Connecting this back to the book of Daniel in the Old Testament suggests that it is of the generation that has yet to come. The generation being the one where the church will be raptured up into Heaven and those Left Behind will face the most catastrophic years the world has ever known.

Many have attempted to find out when the hour and day of its occurance, but ‘ No one know the day or the hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father ‘ (Matt. 24:36). The very angels in Heaven no not when the hour shall come…not even Jesus Christ! Only the Father, God Almighty knows when it shall happen. Verse 37 tells ‘ For as the days of Noe [Noah, original Hebrew name] were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. ‘ First off, the coming of Christ is not the Glorious Appearing, that happens near the end of the Tribulation Period. When Christ comes back, He calls back the church being those who have entrusted Christ with their lives and know Him as Saviour. This is known as the Resurrection of the Church. Now there are many different Resurrections, but I won’t get into that right now. Anway, most everyone is familiar with the basic plot line of Noah and the Ark. The entire world gets flooded and the ship is filled with 2 of every animal. Before the flood came ‘ they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe [Noah] entered into the ark. ‘ as verse 38 says. People were living in the moment, partying and bathing in the inequites of their sins. ‘ And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. ‘ We are not going to know when the church of Christ is raptured up into Heaven. It will be just like with Noah and the ark. We shall be about our own business, partying and drinking. Being marry and having the time of our lives. What really makes this so profound is that it shall happen in the proximity of every person on earth. ‘ Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding away at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. ‘ (Matt. 24:40-42).

The Tribulation Period following the Rapture shall not start once the church is called home. The final 7 years will officially kick off with the signing between the Antichrist and Israel. ‘ And he [antichrist] shall confirm the covenant with many for week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate… ‘ (Daniel 9:27) The week translates into 7 years. I myself am not completely sure as to why, but it does make logical sense. Revelations 13:5 ‘ The beast [antichrist] was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months. ‘ This takes place during the Tribulation Period and everyone know there is definetly not 42 months in a week. It also gives insight to the previous excert from Daniel. ‘ and in the midst of the weekhe shall cause the sacrificeand the oblation to cease ‘ The 42 months equals 3 and a half years. This would examine that the midst is really half way in the Tribulation. Where Antichrist turns from a peace loving fanatic to iron fist synic that would put Stalin, Hitler, and Putin to shame.

I really felt obligated to confront this topic when I was asked a question through a comment. Sorry that it took me a while to respond, but I have just been so busy with school, church, and other things to have put a well thought out response to your comment.

  1. YOU SAID, “The week translates into 7 years. I myself am not completely sure as to why…” WHAT? “…but it does make logical sense.” Wait a minute? How can you not be sure as to why and then say it makes logical sense? That doesn’t make logical sense!

    YOU SAID, “Revelations 13:5 ‘ The beast [antichrist…” Hold on there. Did you just insert the word [antischrist] where John didn’t even do that? WOW. Why are you inserting into God’s word?

    If John had no problem using the word “antichrist” in the previous book 1 John 4:1-3, then why wouldn’t he use the term “antichrist” in Revelation?

    Also, John had no problem with using the number 7 to describe the 7 stars, 7 churches, 7 lampstands etc., in Revelation, why not use 7 to describe this mythical 7-year tribulation?

    Study to show thyself approved and not what others tell you. Let scripture interpret scripture. It’s good for the kingdom.

    God Bless.

  2. I very much see where you’re coming from. I didn’t have much time to write this post, so missed alot of things where I wanted to explain more in depth. The beast I was referring to was indeed the Antichrist, but inserted it to make it known. Looking back at it, I see that I should have used more scripture to clarify my point rather than insert stuff and expect people to acknowledge it as biblical. As for everything else, I will try to go more in depth with what I wrote on this post and try to cover clarify it with scripture rather than what I hear, only on a later date because I am still very much occupied with so many other things. I may write a few different posts in the meantime, but I’ve already made that committment to answer completely and not slap a bunch of verses together and be done with it. And indeed, I must “Let scripture interpret scripture” Thanks.
