The Pre-Tribulation Paradox

P2ALM

This short video presents one of the best scriptural arguments I’ve ever heard against the idea of a pre-tribulation rapture.

Pre-tribulation rapture advocates claim that 1st Thessalonians 5 begins a completely new subject that is fully disconnected from 1st Thessalonians 4:16-17. This video exposes an inescapable paradox that arises when adhering to that line of thought.

The Pre-Tribulation Paradox

“Immediately after the suffering of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven will be shaken. [Matthew 24:29 NET]

Tribulation

A biblical definition of the gathering (rapture): The rapture is the part of the resurrection for those who will be alive at the time of Christ’s return to be gathered to Him. Those who are dead in Him are already with Him [1 Thessalonians 4:13-18].

THE UNDERGROUND with Joel Richardson: DANIEL 2 and the FOURTH KINGDOM

P2ALM

Episode 4: Daniel 2 and the Fourth Kingdom

An examination of the Revived Roman Empire theory showing how it doesn’t hold up to Scripture.

The Western Perspective vs. the Middle Eastern Perspective.

The 4th Kingdom crushes and breaks the other 3 at the same time:

Then there will be a fourth kingdom as strong as iron; inasmuch as iron crushes and shatters all things, so, like iron that breaks in pieces, it will crush and break all these in pieces. [Daniel 2:40 NASB]

Christ’s Kingdom crushes the other 4 at the same time:

The head of that statue was made of fine gold, its breast and its arms of silver, its belly and its thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay. You continued looking until a stone was cut out without hands, and it struck the statue on its feet…

Calling the Church to Prophetic Awareness

This is truly revelation for this day and time.

P2ALM

Sound the Alarm!We are at a very important time in history. It is a time when the Church is, quite frankly, largely blind to what is happening. This is because there is an area of God’s Word that the Church has not been consistently examining with any great scrutiny and that is eschatology, or the study of end times. This is concerning considering such a large part of the Bible is end-time prophecy.

One reason for this is that we have created an atmosphere in the Church in which we don’t believe prophecy is knowable and so we don’t bother to study it. Does God give us so much prophecy only to have it remain unknowable? I don’t think so. This is doing both the saved and the unsaved a great disservice in many ways as it is simply not true.

Another reason, equally as destructive, is that we also believe it…

Isaac and Ishmael: The Origin of Middle East Conflict and the Foundation for Understanding Eschatology

Beautiful revelation.

P2ALM

The Middle East is swelling with violence and turmoil. Christian persecution is on the rise and all the while the enemies of Israel are closing ranks around her borders. Our current Western leadership views religion as an archaic coping mechanism unfit for the modern-day world and so denies that any kind of religious theology could possibly be the reason for these things. Western thinking is that the peoples of the Middle East only need a little freedom from oppressive regimes and then they’ll voluntarily want to shed their religious dogma and join the rest of the enlightened global community. Of course, as a show of good faith it’s necessary for the West to be somewhat disassembled and reorganized to create a sort of equilibrium while we welcome our brothers and sisters into the 21st century. Does it seem to you this approach is working? Why is our Western leadership…

The New Holocaust Is Rapidly Spreading Across Europe

P2ALM

The New Holocaust Is Rapidly Spreading Across EuropeDespite the rest of the world continuing to ignore the new holocaust in the Middle East with the same eerie silence that was so noticeable on the eve of WW2, it is now spreading across Europe.

If you don’t know about the massive migration of Islam taking place from the Middle East into Europe, look it up. It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen. Europe was already in trouble, but with the fall of Greece, especially, it now has a completely open border. While it’s entirely understandable that people would flee from war and death, on an unsecured border, with the good come the bad.

Numerous European countries are now attempting to build fences but its already too late. This is the new Europe — soon to be renamed Eurabia. Watch how quickly the mosques go up. And if things continue on the way they are, America will not be…

Daniel 11 Reveals the Geographic Location of the Antichrist’s Rise to Power

Now I can see the connection.

P2ALM

Black Flag CaliphateIn “Isaac and Ishmael: The Origin of Middle East Conflict and the Foundation for Understanding Eschatology,” we examined the original enmity between Sarah and Hagar. We saw how Isaac and Ishmael inherited this same enmity toward each other, which has continued from that time and is playing out in front of us today. We were also introduced to the rather shocking claim that this enmity will climax in a showdown between an Islamic Antichrist from the line of Ishmael and a returning Jesus Christ from the line of Isaac. If this is true, we should expect to find supporting evidence in Scripture.

We’re going to go right to the heart of the matter in the Book of Daniel. Daniel 11 specifically answers one of the most important questions in all of prophecy:

Where in the world will the Antichrist rise to power?

Daniel is sealed until it’s unsealed
