It hasn’t even been 6 months since the release of my first book, “THE SIGNS OF OUR TIMES: 12 Biblical Reasons Why This Could Be the Generation of the Rapture,” so I’m surprised to already be announcing the release of my 2nd book early next year. As I’ve said before though, when the Holy Spirit leads you to do something it is impossible to refuse.
So, here we are! Just a few months after writing my first book, friends and family would ask when my next book would be written. I answered, “Not for years. I just finally finished this one!” Little did I know that God had other plans. This 2nd book will be a Sequel to the first, and will be titled “EVEN MORE Signs of Our Times: More Biblical Reasons Why This Could Be the Generation of the Rapture.”
It will pick up where the last book left off, covering new developments regarding the previous 12 signs, as well as signs that I could not fit into the first book. I am still finalizing the Chapter layout, but you can expect to read about –
* MASS SHOOTINGS
* WARS AND RUMOURS OF WARS
* WIDESPREAD BLASPHEMY
* DEMONIC INDOCTRINATION
* AND MUCH MORE
Just like with my first book, I truly feel that the Holy Spirit has been writing it and I’m just the vessel that God is using to put the words onto paper. I’m so excited about this new book, and I hope that all of you are too. It was as big of a surprise to me that I began writing it so soon after the first as it is to all of you hearing about it for the first time.
Now, one thing I didn’t cover in great detail in the first book was what exactly “The Rapture” actually is. I just assumed most readers who would buy the book already had a pretty good idea. Since people curious about learning what Biblical “Last Days” Signs have been occurring in our generation may be new converts, I wanted to make sure to dedicate a whole Chapter in this coming book to what “the Rapture” belief is all about.
I’ve already finished that Chapter, and wanted to share the first page or two of it with you all as an exclusive sneak preview of the new book. So here‘s an excerpt from –
What Is the Rapture?
“For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trumpet 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. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”
~ 1st THESSALONIANS 4:16-18
Comfort one another.. that is what hope in the long-awaited Rapture is meant to do. In a generation inundated with hatred, violence, despair, and unadulterated evil, how are we to bring comfort to those around us? Exactly as Saint Paul told us to – “with these words” – that’s how. With the words describing our Lord’s descent from Heaven to rescue His Church, both the dead and the living, from this wicked world before all hell breaks loose on planet earth.
This message brings a believer peace and serenity in a troubled world that is filled with chaos. It reminds us, in the midst of rampant evil, that the worse things get – the closer we draw to that glorious day. Yes, the day in which our corruptible mortal bodies are transformed into incorruptible immortal bodies and we finally see our Lord face to face. How could any true believer not be comforted with that thought?
Unfortunately, there are a lot of believers today who do not ascribe to the doctrine of the Rapture, and who believe that we will be enduring all of the plagues and judgments foretold in the Book of Revelation. They obviously do not know the God of the Book which they claim to believe. Our Lord is a Just, Faithful, and Merciful God. He delights in the righteous, and rewards those who diligently heed His Word and seek His Face.
When He first destroyed the wicked from off of the face of earth in the Flood of Noah’s Day, notice that He preserved Noah and his family on the Ark – keeping them out of the judgment. Remember those two words – OUT OF – for they are key to understanding the Rapture. Noah did not endure the punishment of God along with the wicked. Think back to the judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah, and how God delivered Lot and his family “out of” it. Lot, for Abraham’s sake, did not endure the punishment of God along with the wicked.
So, why then do believers think that we will be going through the worst tribulation that the world has ever seen along with the wicked? It doesn’t make sense that God would all of a sudden change the way that He deals with the righteous and the wicked. His Word is crystal clear that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). He does not change (Malachi 3:6). The “Post-Tribulation” Christians have obviously never read the words of Lord Jesus in the Book of Revelation…
“Because you have kept the word of My patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation (testing), which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.” ~ Revelation 3:10
Now, I told you to remember the two words “out of” because in our English translations of the Holy Bible we read “keep you FROM the hour” in that verse of Revelation. Though, the word “from” in the original Biblical Greek is “ek” – which means “OUT OF.” So, contrary to the thinking of many of my brothers and sisters expecting to go through the (7-Year) Tribulation Hour, Jesus didn’t mince words when promising that He would keep us out of it altogether.
Instead of boarding an Ark like Noah, or fleeing to another town like Lot, the Lord Himself will come down to evacuate us believers from the earth before God’s judgments are poured out. I do not understand how other believers can read their Holy Bibles front to back, and believe that the LORD would somehow allow us to go through the worst tribulation in world history. He certainly would not, and there is nothing in our Bibles that indicates otherwise…
Again, that is just a taste of what to expect in that Chapter. There are about 7 more pages where that came from. This book will be about the same size as my previous one, with 12 Chapters again. If you enjoyed the first, then you will love the Sequel. I’ve already gotten goosebumps a few times upon discovering evidence of God’s Hand in our modern-day events. I have no doubt that you will too.
Be sure to follow Biblical Signs ITH on Social Media for progress updates on the book, and for the 2019 release month. As I asked before releasing my first book, I again ask you all to pray that the LORD makes this book everything that HE wants it to be, with everything that HE wants in it, and that I can get it to everyone that HE wants to have it!
