PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: The Rapture Phase (Part 4) from Dr. Tim LaHaye: a detailed chronology of the rapture.

When the 300-plus Bible references to the second coming are carefully examined, it becomes clear that there are two phases to Christ’s return. These passages have far too many conflicting activities connected with His return to be merged into a single coming.

Since we know there are no contradictions in the Word of God, our Lord must be telling us something here. Most scholars who take the Bible literally whenever possible believe He is talking about one coming in two stages. First, He will come suddenly in the air to rapture His church and take believers to His Father’s house, in fulfillment of His promise in John 14:1-3. There, they will appear before the judgment seat of Christ and participate in the marriage supper of the Lamb. Then Jesus will finish His second coming by returning to earth gloriously and publicly in great power to set up His kingdom.

5.1 quake shakes Calif.; ‘Small’ nuclear war could make Earth uninhabitable (Second Coming Watch Update #500)

[audio http://www.buzzsprout.com/4994/161626-5-1-quake-shakes-calif-small-nuclear-war-could-make-earth-uninhabitable-second-coming-watch-update-500.mp3]

1. According to Reuters, a magnitude 5.1 earthquake struck suburban Los Angeles on Friday evening, rattling a wide swath of Southern California, breaking water mains in a nearby community and prompting Disneyland to shut down rides. U.S. Geological Survey seismologist, Lucy Jones, said, “There could be even a larger earthquake in the next few hours or the next few days.” Since Friday, over 100 aftershocks have been recorded.

2. According to CBS News, with an estimated 17,000 nuclear weapons in the world, people already have the power to exterminate humanity many times over. But according to a LiveScience report, it wouldn’t take a full-scale nuclear war to make Earth uninhabitable. Even a relatively small regional nuclear war, such as a conflict between India and Pakistan, could spark a global environmental catastrophe. Researchers predicted that the resulting firestorms would kick up about 5.5 million tons of black carbon high into the atmosphere. This ash would absorb incoming solar heat, cooling the surface below and creating conditions close to a “nuclear winter” which would cause mass crop failure. Many people would die not only from the bombs and radiation, but from starvation.

3. According to Reuters, a senior Russian security official was quoted as telling President Vladimir Putin that Moscow faces growing threats from the United States and its allies, who are trying to weaken Russia’s influence in Ukraine. Alexander Malevany, deputy head of the Federal Security Service, said Russia was taking “offensive counter-intelligence and intelligence measures” to blunt Western efforts to “weaken Russian influence in a region that is of vital importance.”

4. According to AFP, a top Ukrainian defense official told an American audience that there are nearly 100,000 Russian forces massed on Ukraine’s border, giving a number far higher than US military estimates. The chairman of Ukraine’s national security council said, “Almost 100,000 soldiers are stationed on the borders of Ukraine… Russian troops are not in Crimea only, they are along all Ukrainian borders. They’re in the south, they’re in the east and in the north.”

5. According to the Oregonian, the ground is shaking under Government Camp, Oregon — even though many of the people who live there can barely feel it. More than 30 small earthquakes have rattled the ground under the city since Sunday. The quakes are happening along a newly discovered fault. Ian Madin, Chief Scientist with the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries, said, “The fact that the earthquakes are defining a fault means that that fault is active and if it can make a magnitude 2.3 it can probably make a much larger earthquake.”

The Bible says in Luke 21:10-11: “Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.”

Our second coming quote for today is from G. Campbell Morgan. He said, “I never begin my work in the morning without thinking that perhaps he may interrupt my work and begin his own. I am not looking for death, I am looking for him.”

EU offers aid “partnership” if Israel, Palestine reach peace deal (Second Coming Watch Update #499)

1. According to the Jerusalem Post, the European Union is offering Israel and the Palestinians an unprecedented “partnership” if they reach a peace accord. The EU’s envoy to Israel said it is meant partly to ease Israeli fears that a future Palestinian state would turn into a “failed state” and a launching pad for attacks.

2. According to the Associated Press, Clashes between Syrian rebels and forces loyal to President Bashar Assad spread to a coastal area near the Turkish border on Tuesday as opposition fighters pressed on with a campaign to gain access to the sea. Capturing the seaside tourist village of Samra, which straddles the Syria-Turkey border, would give rebels an outlet to the Mediterranean for the first time since the Syrian conflict began over three years ago.

3. According to the Associated Press, North Korea test-fired two medium-range ballistic missiles on Wednesday in a defiant challenge to a rare three-way summit of its rivals Seoul, Tokyo and Washington that focused on the North’s security threat. The launch of the Rodong missiles — for the first time since 2009 — violates U.N. Security Council resolutions and marks a big escalation from a series of shorter-range rocket launches.

4. According to the Jewish Telegraphic Association, the Obama administration is scrambling to salvage Israeli-Palestinian talks threatened by disputes over core identity issues for each side: recognition of the state’s Jewish character for Israel and the release of prisoners for the Palestinians.

5. According to CNN, a report by the World Health Organization states that an estimated 7 million people died due to air pollution globally in 2012, with more than half of the deaths linked to indoor smoke from cooking stoves. The report states that air pollution is now the “single largest environmental health risk.” The majority of the deaths associated with air pollution were heart disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and lung cancer.

The Bible says in Joel 2:1: “Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand.”

Our second coming quote for today is from Thomas V. Moore. He said, “Christ is coming to the earth, in such a form at least as shall fulfill his purposes of mercy to his friends and justice to his foes.”

PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: The Rapture Phase (Part 2) from Dr. Tim LaHaye

We have already seen that the second phase of our Lord’s coming, or the glorious appearing, is the phase most frequently mentioned in the Scriptures, both in the Old and New Testaments. It is the event that all the prophets of Israel looked forward to and is the one that the disciples had in mind when they asked our Lord, “What will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” We will study this passage in detail in a later broadcast, but here I want to call your attention to the terms the disciples used: “the sign of your coming” and “the end of the age.” When Christ comes physically to this earth, it will be to end this period of time and usher in a whole new age — not the pantheistic, mystical age anticipated by the New Age movement, but an age when God Himself will be the King of kings and will rule over the earth. As we will see, this age will fulfill the fondest dreams of all those who humble themselves before God.

Deadly Ebola virus spreads; Russia kicked out of G8 (Second Coming Watch Update #498)

[audio http://www.buzzsprout.com/4994/160791-deadly-ebola-virus-spreads-russia-kicked-out-of-g8-second-coming-watch-update-498.mp3]

1. According to AFP (Agence France-Presse), Aid workers and health officials in Guinea are battling to contain west Africa’s first outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus as neighbouring Liberia reported its first suspected victims. At least 59 people are known to have died in Guinea’s southern forests but the Liberian cases, if confirmed, would mark the first spread of the highly contagious pathogen into another country.

2. According to McClatchy, the leaders of the world’s largest industrialized countries expelled Russia from the G8 group until it “changes course” in Ukraine and formally canceled plans to attend an economic summit in Russia in June.

3. According to Xinhua, China’s President stressed on Monday that the United States should honor its commitment to respect China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity on the Taiwan and Tibet issues.

4. According to AFP, Gaza’s Hamas premier Ismail Haniya warned Israel that it would pay dearly if it heeded its foreign minister’s call to reoccupy the Palestinian enclave to try to halt rocket attacks.

5. According to Israel National News, Protesters gathered on Sunday afternoon outside the embassy of the European Union in Tel Aviv, demanding that the EU pay at least as much attention to the suffering of Christians in Arab countries as to the “suffering” of Palestinians. A spokesperson for the group said, “It is a clear case of ethnic cleansing, and the Christian world has remained deathly silent.”

The Bible says in Revelation 21:2-3: “And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.”

Our second coming quote for today is from D.L. Moody. He said, “I never preach a sermon without thinking that possibly the Lord may come before I preach another.”

PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: The Rapture Phase (Part 1) from Dr. Tim LaHaye

Our Lord referred directly to the rapture only once. All His other teachings on His return have to do with the second phase, or the literal, physical return when He will set up His kingdom, for which the Jews (to whom He spoke) were looking. However, the day before Jesus died on the cross He prepared His disciples to function during His absence (the church age) and addressed them with these words, which provide the Bible’s first detailed reference to the rapture:

“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
