I, too, keep receiving messages concerning this topic. I have written extensive series of blogs upon the topic, and they can be found here in my blog. So I will not REWRITE all of that information.
If you're interested, you can look it up: February 2011 (a series on the scriptural timing of the end); March 2011 (250 Reasons for the Pre-Trib Rapture, plus a series about the fallacies of the Pre-Wrath Rapture teaching); May 2011 (the Rapture in the structure of the book of Revelation); May 2012 (World Conditions at the Time of the Rapture); August 2013 (The Time is Nigh); September 2013 (End Time Signs, Burgeoning, Increasing); May 2014 (Time Is So Short -- Alert!) and August 2014 (24 Elders in Revelation).
However, I will re-emphasize a few of the points that I've made previously. That's the purpose of this post.
A person wrote to me, asking about my reference to the Rapture ALWAYS being IMMINENT. The question: "But, Sharon, what if there's 5 MORE YEARS left prior to the Rapture?"
First of all, I say that Jesus remarked about the IMMINENCE of His coming. "Watch therefore: for you know not what hour your Lord will come." (Matthew 24:42). "Therefore be you also ready: for in such an hour as you think not, the Son of man will come." (When we least expect Him, the Lord can come quickly and Rapture His own). (Matthew 24:44)
I especially like the answer to this question that is given in Mark 13:35-37--"Watch ye therefore: for you know not when the master of the house will come [from His Father's house in heaven--John 14:1-3], at even [evening], or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning. Lest coming suddenly, He find you sleeping. And what I say unto you, I say unto ALL, Watch."
The present world system is likened unto THE NIGHT. In the night, there are FOUR periods of watching [when a watchman on the wall was to be alert and looking--to make sure no enemy would creep in in the dark to rob, kill and destroy. The first watch is early night, the evening, from 6 pm to 9 pm. The second watch was later, from 9 pm to midnight am. The third watch entered the early (and dark hours) of the morning, from midnight am until 3 am, the cockcrowing hours. The fourth watch completed the long night (still dark in these early morning hours) from 3 am until morning's light, at 6 am. The master could show up at ANY of those watches!
WE ARE TOLD TO KEEP WATCHING, BECAUSE THE COMING OF THE LORD CAN HAPPEN AT ANY POINT DURING THE NIGHT. HIS RETURN TO RAPTURE THE CHURCH IS IMMINENT! IT CAN HAPPEN IN "ANY SPLIT INSTANT"! SO WATCH, THEREFORE! BE READY AT ALL TIMES....
The earliest "evening" watch can cover the years of the Church from 32 A.D. until approximately 532 A.D. The second "midnight" watch can compare to 532 A.D. until 1032 A.D., approximately. (It's interesting that this compares to what has become known as "the Dark Ages" of the Church, which "overflows on into the night" until the Reformation, around 1517 A.D.) The third "cockcrowing" watch of the night, covers approximately 1032 A.D. until 1532 A.D. That places us well into THE FOURTH and "morning" watch RIGHT NOW, when we actually SEE "the day" approaching (Hebrews 10:25). The fourth watch covers approximately the years from 1532 A.D. (the Reformation) up to 2032 A.D. (with the coming of the Lord being MUCH MORE IMMINENT than ever)!
The Apostle Paul reinforces this understanding of WATCHING during THE NIGHT. Romans 13:11-14--"And that, KNOWING the time, that NOW it is high time to AWAKE out of SLEEP: for NOW is our salvation NEARER than when we believed. THE NIGHT is far spent, THE DAY is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering [living together--cohabitation--wh
That, in turn, leads up to the our understanding that looking for Jesus, and loving His appearing, gives us a PRESSING INCENTIVE to purify ourselves. I'll return to that thought a little later.
This could give the idea that we DO perhaps have 5 YEARS OR MORE, between NOW and the Rapture, since the ending part of the WATCHES OF THE NIGHT is 2032 A.D. But remember, Jesus told us to WATCH during the ENTIRE NIGHT, because His coming can be at ANY MOMENT! By watching, we WILL SEE THE SIGNS that shows HOW NEAR the time really IS. We WILL KNOW the time and season for Jesus' coming, and deduce that it IS VERY NEAR, even while at the same time, we WON'T KNOW the exact day or hour. Jesus can INDEED come well BEFORE we ever reach 2032 A.D. As for me, my spirit is RESPONDING to what the Holy Spirit has ALERTED ME. We do NOT have even 5 YEARS left! The Rapture is MORE IMMINENT than it ever has been before!!!--and that's BECAUSE of a number of reasons, which I'll point out later....
Another thing to remember about counting the years: GOD RECKONS A PROPHETIC YEAR AS 360 DAYS IN LENGTH. That's why I divided the age of the Church (written above) into only APPROXIMATE years. I find it very interesting that the Reformation ended THE DARK AGES (between about 532 A.D. and 1532 A.D. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CHURCH IN THOSE YEARS?
It got caught into trappings and traditions originating from the Babylonian pagan religion, and NOT from scripture. In 312 A.D., the Roman emperor, Constantine declared Christianity a "state religion", and Rome no longer persecuted the Church, but embraced it. This led to compromise with "pagan" priests, who entered the Church through "false conversions" and introduced all manner of error, from Gnosticism to outright Babylonian idolatry. This led up to the first Pope being introduced in 606 A.D., which deepened into THE DARK AGES of the Papacy. This indeed covers a time-frame between THE END of the evening watch in 517 A.D. to the COCKCROWING between MIDNIGHT and the morning watch (532 A.D. to 1032 A.D to 1532 A.D.--when the FIRST glimmer of morning nears, and the CROW declares the coming arrival of a new day. The CROWING can relate to "96 Theses" being nailed by Martin Luther to the door of Roman Catholicism in 1517 A.D.
WHY 1517 A.D. instead of 1532 A.D.? Let's consider HOW God counts time. God does NOT use the 365 1/4 days of the solar calendar (like the Gentiles do). He uses the 360 DAYS of a prophetic calendar, which applies to a lunar calendar followed by Israel. We see this apparent especially, in the counting of the days between the decree to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and to the first coming, when Jesus was declared as "King". This is according to the "70 Week prophecy" given in Daniel 9:24-27. After Jesus was called "King" in Israel at Passover Time in 32 A.D., He was "cut-off", leaving a FINAL WEEK of seven years YET to be fulfilled IN ISRAEL. The count of that prophecy was according to the 360 day year, and it ended exactly on Palm Sunday, April 6, 32 A.D., the ONLY day in which Jesus was declared as "King", and a day in which HE HIMSELF arranged for the fulfillment--on the exact day by the 360 day year's count!
Jesus knew the time. Israel did NOT! Three days after rejoicing in their King, the same people called for His crucifixion! Jesus makes NOTE of this in Luke 19:41-44. JESUS KNEW THE TIME, and He FORETOLD what would happen in Jerusalem in 70 A.D.
Luke 19:41-44--"And when He was come near [riding on the donkey], He beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying, If you hadst known, even you, at least in this YOUR DAY, the things which belong unto thy peace! but NOW they are HID from your eyes. For the days shall come upon you, that your enemies [the Romans] shall cast a trench about you, and compass you round, and keep you in on every side [laying siege to Jerusalem], And shall lay you even with the ground, and you children within you; and they shall not leave in you one stone upon another; because you KNEW NOT THE TIME OF YOUR VISITATION."
JESUS CONSIDERS IT AS VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW THE TIME AND THE SEASONS. Israel did NOT KNOW, and they paid a very heavy consequence. Of course, God KNEW what would happen WELL IN ADVANCE, and Israel's rejection of Jesus OPENED THE DOOR for the birth of the Church, which occurred on Pentecost 32 A.D. All in accordance with the 360 day count of the prophetic calendar!
Counting with 360 days, instead of the 365 1/4 day year of the solar calendar, then the EXACT DAYS for the Reformation to happen can be seen as SHORTER than the full 1000 solar years between 517 and 1532 A.D. The same can apply when looking at THE END of the morning watch--at 2032 A.D. God's timing can be MUCH SHORTER, and according to ALL the signs we see currently, this appears to be the case. It's WHY I feel we will NOT have yet another 5 YEARS in the age of the Church. GOD CONTROLS THE TIMING! But He tells us WHAT TO WATCH FOR!
With all of this BACKGROUND, I now respond to the idea of 5 MORE YEARS:
I TYPED THIS REPLY--"With all the SIGNS off the charts right now, plus specific Bible Prophecies working toward their fulfillment every day, I simply do NOT see five more years left for this world system.
"That said, even IF we ARE STILL HERE five years from now, and the Rapture has NOT YET happened, I would still proclaim it's IMMINENCE.
"But also, IF the Rapture has NOT YET occurred after five years, the Tribulation also will NOT have started and the Antichrist will still NOT be revealed either. The Rapture will happen BEFORE those two things.
"THE FACT IS THIS: NO PROPHECY NEEDS TO BE FULFILLED BEFORE THE RAPTURE! Jesus can come get His own at ANY SPLIT INSTANT...NOW, and also the Rapture REMAINS "imminent" for ANY AMOUNT of time we may have left in our short future here on earth. We'll soon be with our Lord forever and ever, Amen!" END OF REPLY.
THE TRUTH IS THIS: The Church is NOT meant to go through the Tribulation. 1 Thessalonians 1:10--"And to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus, which DELIVERED us from THE WRATH to come."
SEE ALSO: 1 Thessalonians 5:4-11--"But YOU, brethren [of the Church], are NOT in darkness, that that day [the day of the Lord] should overtake you as a thief [we should SEE it coming, by ALL the signs]. You are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are NOT OF the night [remember "the watches of the night"--noted above], nor [are we] of darkness. Therefore let us NOT SLEEP, as do others; but let us WATCH and be sober. For THEY [those NOT in the Church] that sleep SLEEP IN the night; and THEY that be drunken are drunken IN the night. But let us [Church], who are OF the day [in the light of Jesus], be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath NOT appointed us to wrath [in the day of the Lord], but to obtain salvation [deliverance] by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake [are alive] or sleep [have died during the age of the Church], we should live together WITH Him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do."
JESUS HIMSELF GIVES THIS PROMISE TO A FAITHFUL AND TRUE CHURCH: Revelation 3:10-11--"Because you have KEPT the word of My patience, I also will KEEP YOU FROM [out of] THE HOUR [the time] of temptation [Tribulation, trial, test], which SHALL COME upon ALL the world [ALL the world means that there is NO PLACE to escape "this time" ON THE EARTH--and TO NOT be in "the time" of the Tribulation's trial means we'll be removed to a place "OUTSIDE of time"--to the eternity in heaven], ["this time" of Tribulation will come upon ALL world] to try THEM [unbelievers and Israel] that DWELL upon the earth [showing that the Church will not be on the earth, but will be taken out of the way and into heaven]."
JESUS GIVES PROMISES HIS DISCIPLES IN THE UPPER ROOM [The gospel of John focuses upon the Church--and NOT upon Israel--such as HE DID in Matthew, Mark and Luke. Those three gospels record the Olivet Dicourse--Israel's warnings. The gospel of John gives the Upper Room Discourse--the Church's promises.]
JESUS' PROMISE TO HIS CHURCH: John 14:1-3--"Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house [at His Throne in heaven] 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 you may be also. "
This promise is given in the framework of the Jewish wedding ceremony (which I'll not take the time to elaborate in this message). 2 Corinthians 11:2--shows our espousal (engagement to be married). Our relationship with Jesus compared to a marriage--is shown in Ephesians 5:22-32. "This is a mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the Church."
KEEP LOOKING UP! Waiting for the Lord to appear from heaven and shout AT ANY INSTANT.
We have this true word: 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17--"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
EVEN SO, COME QUICKLY LORD!!! Revelation 4:1 is the symbolic picture, in TYPE of the Rapture. In Revelation 22:20, we affirm--Yes, come quickly Lord Jesus. Even so!
WHILE IT IS TRUE THAT WE WILL NOT KNOW THE DAY OR THE HOUR OF THE RAPTURE, WE WILL KNOW WHEN IT IS EXCEEDINGLY NEAR.
The Apostle Paul writes that he has no need to write to us concerning the "times and the seasons", because we WILL KNOW "the times and the seasons", by watching and being awake. The Holy Spirit will give us understanding of what we see. 1 Thessalonians 5:1.
The Rapture is ALWAYS imminent, and can happen at ANY INSTANT. Especially since all the SIGNS and rapidly developing end time prophecies are (in the process of becoming fulfilled RIGHT NOW). The Holy Spirit speaks to my heart, daily, prompting me to say to people: BE READY. Jesus can Rapture us at JUST ANY SPLIT INSTANT. Because of that, I DON'T promote any teaching that says the Rapture MUST happen upon various feast days. When the fulness of the Gentiles, the full number God has in mind, enters the Church--then the Rapture will happen. AT ANY TIME. Maybe even before today is done. And if not today, maybe tomorrow. And if not this week, maybe next week. That's the way I have been led by the Holy Spirit to declare this. And I live in the constant readiness to meet Jesus in the air.
For those who love the appearing of the Lord Jesus, who have this hope in Him, we purify themselves, even as He is pure. 1 John 3:2-3. We wait for the Son from heaven Who will deliver us from the wrath to come. 1 Thessalonians 1:10. I'M WAITING AND WATCHING EVERY DAY!
In 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11, Paul declares that the Rapture will be Pre-Tribulation, BEFORE the "sudden destruction" that will arrive IN the day of the Lord.
When does the "day of the Lord" start? Many answer--saying it will be during the seven year Tribulation. I've recently readjusted my understanding of this. "The day of the Lord" IS the time of God's wrath and judgments, that's true. But where do we actually SEE "the wrath" begin?
Let me fill in a few gaps BEFORE I answer that question.
Right now, IN REAL TIME, we are seeing nations align themselves for war--THE VERY SAME NATIONS that are named in Bible prophecy: the Palestinians--Hamas in Gaza and in the West Bank and Samaria; the Lebanese and Hezbollah; the Syrians and Iraqis--as gathered under ISIS; to be included are Jordan--Moab, Ammon and Edom; the Egyptians; and even part of Iran known as Elam (which is where Buschur, the nuclear facility is built)--all those teeming, riled-up Muslims are in the countries that surround the current borders of Israel. The coming war between Israel and these nations is recorded in several places--in Psalm 83, Obadiah, Jeremiah 49, and Isaiah 17.
THIS IS WHERE WE CURRENTLY ARE POSITIONED. The "sudden destruction" of a volatile war in the Middle East is on the BRINK of being fulfilled. These are END TIME WARS, set to happen just BEFORE "the day of the Lord."
Obadiah 15--"For the day of the Lord is NEAR [not yet here] upon all the heathen: as you have done, it shall be done unto you: your reward shall return upon your own head."
Obadiah gives details of some of the events of the war prayed about in Psalm 83. Psalm 83 lists those nations, including Moab, Edom and Ammon. Obadiah names Esua, who is yet another name given for Edom, also listed in Psalm 83. The Psalm 83 War will happen BEFORE "the day of the Lord"--BEFORE God's specific time of wrath and judgment.
Immediately upon THE END of this Psalm 83 War, I see the Gog/Magog Invasion occurring--and this is BECAUSE such a victory by Israel will INFLAME the rest of the Muslim nations, and even, the entire world. Remember how UPSET everyone got when Israel recently hammered Gaza? After the Psalm 83 War, the enemies will be seeking instant retaliation against Israel--for DARING to win!
So when does "the day of the Lord" start? As I mentioned above, I have adjusted my thinking upon this (and this is thanks to an insightful teaching by Gary Stearman, a well-known and solid Bible prophecy teacher--I've searched this out FOR MYSELF and found it to be so--Acts 17:11).
"The day of the Lord" is seen in the prophecy of the Gog/Magog Invasion of Ezekiel 38-39. This indeed makes IT CLEAR that the Psalm 83 War WILL happen BEFORE the Gog/Magog Invasion.
But when does the Gog/Magog Invasion occur?
Along with many others who have studied this issue, I see Ezekiel 38-39 as happening BEFORE the start of the seven-year Tribulation (PERHAPS as much as 3 1/2 years BEFORE the Tribulation--since Israel will need SEVEN years to burn those weapons. Since they will be hiding in Petra, Jordan during the LAST 3 1/2 years, they'll no longer able to do that activity BECAUSE of their being required to hide from the fury of Antichrist, who breaks the covenant that was confirmed at the Mid-Point of the Tribulation). But time will tell IF THAT understanding is true.
At THE END of Gog/Magog, AFTER the massive explosions of such devastation, the world will be looking for "peace and safety"--searching for "anyone" who has all the answers. Plus, Israel will be ready for a "deliverer" and they will make a false covenant of death and hell with the Antichrist.
"The day of the Lord" begins DURING the Gog/Magog Invasion. (The "day of the Lord" is NOT required to be SEVEN YEARS long--that seven years ONLY applies to the length of Daniel's 70th week--Daniel 9:27, and NOT to the full scope of "the day of the Lord".)
Consider Ezekiel 38:18-19--" And it shall come to pass AT THE SAME TIME when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that MY FURY shall come up in My face. For in my jealousy and in the fire OF MY WRATH have I spoken, Surely in THAT DAY there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;"
The "day of the Lord", the WRATH and FURY of God, BEGINS in the Gog/Magog Invasion. That means, we, the Church, CANNOT be on earth for the Russian Invasion of Israel. Remember, we are NOT appointed to wrath! 1 Thessalonians 5:9. Besides that, the Church will be not here WHEN God resumes His work to restore Israel. I'll say more about that later.
We see MAJOR movements toward the eventual fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39 RIGHT NOW. The nations to be involved in that war are in the CURRENT news, and OFTEN on a daily basis: Russia, Iran, Turkey, the northern nations of Africa--Ethiopia, Sudan, Libya.
THIS ALL PROVES JUST HOW IMMINENT THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH TRULY IS!
Then ADD IN the prophecy given by Peter in Acts 2:17-20--"And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on My servants and on My handmaidens I will pour out in those days of My Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:"
This prophecy puts a bracket around the age of the Church. It BEGAN with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost, and will END with blood, fire and pillars of smoke. The blood comes from the wars, violence and beheadings that WE SEE RIGHT NOW. The fire and pillars of smoke can also be seen in the bombings of warfare, CURRENTLY HAPPENING. The fire and pillars of smoke can also be seen in the many volcanic eruptions that are ALSO CURRENTLY HAPPENING. These pillars of smoke rise into the atmosphere and can darken the sun into obliteration of its light, and can also make a full moon appear blood red. WE ARE SEEING THESE SIGNS RIGHT NOW, SHOWING THAT THE END OF THE CHURCH AGE IS NOW HERE!
When we SEE ALL these things BEGIN TO HAPPEN, then LOOK UP, and LIFT UP OUR HEADS, because our redemption draws NEAR (Luke 21:28), in which we will receive the redemption of our bodies (Romans 8:23), our new and glorified bodies, given at the resurrection/translation that occurs in the Pre-Trib Rapture of the Church.
BY THE SIGNS ALL AROUND US--THIS RAPTURE IS VERY CLOSE INDEED. I do NOT see another 5 YEARS as our destiny. Jesus is COMING, and QUICKLY.
Here's some ADDITIONAL Bible information concerning our PRESENT HOUR: A brief RECAP of what we've seen, so far.
We wait for the Son from heaven Who will deliver us from the wrath to come. 1 Thessalonians 1:10. Later in that epistle, Paul describes the Rapture. And in 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11, he shows that the Rapture will be Pre-Tribulation, before the "sudden destruction" that will arrive in "the day of the Lord". Ezekiel 38-39 (specifically 38:18-19) indicates that the "day of the Lord" will start in the Gog/Magog war, when God's fury rises up in His face (and His wrath then comes). The Church will NOT be here in the time of God's wrath. God will be fully involved in the restoration of Israel by then, and the restoration of Israel happens AFTER the Church is Raptured.
We see that FACT recorded in Acts 15:14-16--"Simon has described to us how God FIRST intervened to choose a people for His name from the Gentiles [the Church], The words of the prophets are in agreement with this, as it is written: AFTER THIS I will return and rebuild David’s fallen tent. Its ruins I will rebuild, and I will restore it,"
That FACT is CONFIRMED, and REPEATED in Romans 11:25-27--"For I would not, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, UNTIL the fulness [the full number] of the Gentiles be come in [into the Church]. [AFTER the full number of Gentiles come into the Church]--And SO all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins."
As I've labored to make clear, RIGHT NOW, we see developments TOWARD THE FULFILLMENT of Ezekiel 38-39 (with events in Russia, Iran, Turkey and all the nations involved in THAT battle "heading that direction")--plus even more events "heading toward" the "PRIOR" battle with nations listed in Psalm 83, Obadiah, Jeremiah 49 and Isaiah 17.
As these wars are NOW BEING set up to occur, we HAVE TO KNOW that our time as the "ekklesia", the "called-out assembly", the "born again" Church, is almost finished--and the Rapture is MORE IMMINENT NOW THAN IT EVER HAS BEEN, and in fact, could happen at ANY SPLIT INSTANT.
AFTER the massive explosions of war, the world will be looking for "peace and safety"--searching for "anyone" who has all the answers. Plus, Israel will be ready for a "deliverer" and they will make a false covenant of death and hell (Isaiah 28:14-18)--with the Antichrist.
Jesus told Israel at His first coming, "I am come in My Father's name, and you receive Me NOT: if another [Antichrist] shall come in his own name, him you WILL receive."--John 5:43.
Jesus again told the Pharisees in Matthew 23:39 (just BEFORE the Olivet Discourse of Matthew 24 showing Israel's destiny in the coming Tribulation)--"You shall not see Me henceforth, UNTIL you say, 'Blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord." Israel will enter the "time of Jacob's trouble" (Jeremiah 30:7).
In that time, they will be tried, sorely afflicted--and a remnant will come through the fire (Zechariah 13:8) and repent of their sin of rejecting Jesus at His first coming (Zechariah 12:10-14).
Hosea 5:15 through 6:1-2 gives THE TIME FRAME of WHEN Israel will call upon the name of the Lord during the Tribulation. It's after 2 days passes (2000 years)--and we're there RIGHT NOW! Israel is being revived, and this after nearly 2000 years of being scattered as a nation. AND IN the 3rd day (the Millennium), Israel will LIVE in His sight.
Also remember the 360 day prophetic day! It WILL be a SHORTER time-frame than given BETWEEN the year 32 A.D. and 2032 A.D. (as calculated from the sacrifice of Jesus at the cross and the BIRTH of the Church). We are nearing THE END of the "morning" watch RIGHT NOW--which BEGAN in approximately 1532 A.D. and is scheduled to END somewhere near 2032. With God's SHORTER count upon the days, and with ALL the MAJOR SIGNS CONVERGING NOW, the window of THE END is much closer than we think!
We SEE the prophesied WARS that will lead into the Tribulation IN MOTION RIGHT NOW. And therefore, we KNOW the time FOR THE FULFILLMENTS of these prophecies IS HERE, right upon us NOW. KEEP LOOKING UP!
Since that is TRUE, the Rapture can happen at ANY SPLIT INSTANT.
I simply do NOT see another 5 YEARS ahead for the age of the Church. EVENTS ARE ON THE BRINK OF EXPLODING INTO FULFILLMENT RIGHT NOW....and within this article ARE all the Biblical reasons WHY I say this!
WE LIVE IN "THE TIME" AND "SEASON" FOR THE LORD JESUS TO DESCEND INTO THE AIR, AND CALL-UP HIS "CALLED-OUT ASSEMBLY", THE "EKKLESIA", THE CHURCH--TO ENTER THOSE MANSIONS AT THE HOUSE OF THE FATHER IN HEAVEN....EVEN SO, COME QUICKLY, LORD!
KEEP THE FAITH! WE ARE ALMOST THERE.
God bless all of you abundantly,
