EndTime Prophecy: 5 Fatal Errors For Christians & SDA re Rapture, Kingdom, Babylon, Beast & Covenant

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

#1. The rapture occurs “at the last trumpet,” 1Cor 15:52. There are 7 trumpets, preceded by a huge earthquake in Rev 8:5,6.”The earth shall shake,” Joel 3:16.
“We must through much tribulation (before rapture) enter the kingdom.” Acts 14:22.

#2. “In the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom” Dan 2:44. Kingdom is dominion of a king by His laws. Christ said, “Till heaven and earth pass, not one jot or tittle shall pass from the law till all be fulfilled.” Matt 5:18.

#3. Babylon is more than Religion; it also includes Economy, Education, Government, and Healthcare as seen in Rev18:24 where pharmakeia is translated as sorcery.

#4. The three beasts in Revelation 13 are the sea beast (papacy) the land beast (US) and the image beast, New World Order. The context and Imagery are explained.

#5. We become the Bride of Christ by making a covenant when He comes to knock as seen in Luke 12:36,37. Since the Bible explains itself, the only other place that He knocks is Rev 3:20, for a lukewarm church that ended in an earthquake…big knock!

“The day of the Lord” begins with an earthquake as seen in Joel 2:10,11, Zech 14:1,5 and 1Thess 5:2,3. Note the phrase, “as travail on a woman with child.” Egypt travailed with God’s first-born (Exod 4:22). The US is like Egypt which killed babies (60 million abortions) and corporate greed has enslaved most people in alcohol, tobacco, drugs, food, fashion, fiction, gambling, greed, rock music, porn, perversion, sex, TV, violence

God is going to execute judgment on the US as with Egypt and take those who are ready, to a covenant relationship–they become His kingdom, Speaking of the Exodus Paul said, “All those things happened to them for examples…ends of the world.” 1Cor 10:1,11.

This is not the old covenant that Israel agreed to do before they knew what it was.
This is the New Covenant with the promise to write His laws in our hearts so we want to do the right thing, Jer 31:31-33. But we totally miss the context of “latter days” vs 1, and we can’t imagine what God says He will do in verses 8,10,16,17 of Jeremiah 31.

    The word “rapture” is not even in the Bible. it’s a man-made concept to fool. :twisted:

    • jknbt

      LAME weak argument, toothless. shallow…the greek word is harpadzo, which means “catching away”….Jerome used the word “rapiemur” which means the same thing in latin….somehow the common use in english became “rapture”…just say “catching away” instead of “rapture”, and all the teaching remains intact…

        Well, why don’t you? Idiot argument. :cool:

      slimey don’t stand in the way of the rapture the springing up the great escape ( i am not staying around for the 2nd coming the 2nd judgment (With Christ as His bride I will also be a judge – a highest prist- a savior)
      Obadiah 1:14 Neither shouldest thou have stood in the crossway, to cut off those of his that did escape; neither shouldest
      thou have delivered up those of his that did remain in the day of distress.

      Matthew 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

      Rapt – great escape ^- was used in medieval bibles- the great springing up of the celestials head * 5 wise virgins * – we are not the tail * 5 foolish virgins *that repents/baptize,renew,rededicate,born again-Hebrews 6:1-8 the fallen repenting fiery thorns burned as tares
      Rapture- great escape^ is in Catholic vulgate
      Here is the exact catching away of the congregation of the righteous ( vessels of Mercy, of the rewards only 1st judgement)Christ Acts 15 Gentile rapture bride (we are made Nazarene sect of celestial eternal quickened spirit strong meat freeborn espoused intreaty chaste virgin New inner man new Jews seated in Christ his body the head His church of the 1st born 1st fruits church of Christ (reinstalled back on Father’s holy mountain of fire)
      Isaiah 45:8 King James Version (KJV)
      8 Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the Lord have created it.

      Jesus talked of the great escape the rapture the 12 disciples heard him
      Hebrews 2:3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;

      The rapture the great escape-springing up
      uke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

    Both comments are correct.. This issue is not whether there will be such an event, but the timing. 1 Cor 15:51,52 support it “at the last trump” and there are 7 trumpets in Rev 8 & 9 that begin after the earthquake in Re 8:5. “We must through much tribulation enter int othe kingdom of God,” Acts 14:22

    God didn’t give us this info for us to predict the future ourselves , for us to develop dogma around, or for us to bicker about.

    He gave it to us so that as it happens we will not be confused about what is happening.

    We can no more use the bible to predict how it is going to be than people 200 years ago could have imagined electronic money becoming the potential mark of the beast.

  • Dr Richard Ruhling

    @Rockledge: Your comment shows awareness a possibility of “electronic money becoming the potential mark of the beast” that couldn’t have been 200 years ago. This suggests the possibility of events that Christ warned about in Matthew 24:37-40.
    “As the days of NOah,” the Flood came with Passover timing but in the 2nd spring month and “THEN” (same time) is a description of what might be martial and taken to a FEMA camp–also something that could not be imagined 200 years ago.
    The point is, Who can know what points of the Savior’s words are relevant at any time. “ALL Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable” (2Tim 3:16) so maybe we should know more than we do.
    The wedding parables show women asleep with lights out (Matt 25:5) and the invitation is scorned in Matt 22:3-7, yet they ALL show a need forr instant readiness. If we know nothing about prophecy and just “wait and see” we will NOT be ready to “open to Him immediately” in Luke 12:36,37 where He ALSO says “Watch”
