The Pre Tribulation Rapture Is For Who?

The most recent episode of Prophecy Watchers (June 10, 2019) had such interesting content explaining the pre-tribulation rapture that I thought I would share it.  I especially enjoyed the discussion toward the end where Gary Stearman and Dr. David Reagan discuss the mechanics of the rapture: who would be included and what happens to the people who survive the apocalypse. 

You can hear this last piece of their discussion at about the 22 minute mark in the video which you can find here.  It ends the video with fascinating information I was never entirely clear about!

We Know The Call Of God

27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. – John 10:27-28

We Are Saved And Forgiven

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and by our gathering together unto Him,

that ye be not soon shaken in mind or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as if from us that the Day of Christ is at hand. – 2 Thessalonians 2:1-2

Today’s livestream sermon by Pastor John MacArthur began in 2 Thessalonians, where he taught that Paul was allaying the fears of the Thessalonians who were falsely told that they were in the Day of God’s Wrath; they had missed the rapture and were being judged by God. Continue reading

The Saints Will Be Saved By God

resurrectionThis post is related to my last post where John MacArthur taught about how believers will be raptured out from this world and will not go through the tribulation.  Some people have learned differently but in this video MacArthur teaches the pre-tribulation rapture theology as many pastors teach today.   He can be seen in a short video explaining where the rapture is taught in the bible.  Continue reading

Our Hope Is In Jesus: Look Up And Watch For Him

Grace Church Live StreamToday’s sermon by Pastor John MacArthur was about how believers will miss the day of destruction of Satan’s false Christ, and of those who chose not to believe in Christ Jesus.  MacArthur’s message stemmed from believers being comforted that we were going to meet Christ in the air (2 Thessalonians) as our Great Hope in Christ.

Life Of Christ Brings Eternal Living: We Change From Within

cross-1517171__340The world is full of people like I used to be; walking with the devil and creating better lives for ourselves in the worldly sense.

We seem to think we are smart enough to manifest our desires in life: better cars, bigger houses, fame, glory, all to impress others and ourselves, being smug, or pompous, narcissist or arrogant.  These are all worldly attitudes and judgements we have of ourselves or others. Continue reading

The Plan For Salvation: Jesus Had To Die On The Cross

And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. – 2 Corinthians 5:15

Today’s message from Grace To You was given by a different pastor since John MacArthur was getting rested up from attending so many functions lately, so the substitute was “Pastor Mike”.  I regret not finding his last name but today’s message has not been posted yet so I can’t see the name of the person who gave the message.  The sermon for today, 5/19/19, will be posted here.

Our One And Only Savior: Jesus Christ

…for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. – Luke 2:11

cross-2713356_640

To believers, Christ is our Lord and Savior.

We recognize he is the only person we seek to glorify, He is above all else; we make him the compass of our lives, we seek his counsel and wisdom above all mankinds.  Our friends, our families, and our societal leaders don’t have the wisdom He has.  His ways are higher than our ways.  He is our Creator, after all.
