God is a good Father. A good father prepares his children for the future. Bible prophecy is the Good Father’s way of preparing his children for the horrific events that will unfold as our current age of history transitions to the next. In the years leading up to Christ’s return, Earth will be Hellish, with Satan’s Anti-Christ on the throne and the judgments of God coming upon all of humanity. God tells us ahead of time in His Word, the Bible, about this time of Great Tribulation so we will not be caught off guard.

God wouldn’t have included prophecy in the Bible if He wanted His children to remain in the dark about what’s happening in the world today. If you are in a church that doesn’t teach prophecy or that denies God’s Word is unfolding as we speak, then you must study prophecy on your own. We are accountable for ALL of God’s word, regardless of what we’ve been taught (or haven’t been taught). God gave us the resources we need to learn about His word. He encourages us to ask for His wisdom, a gift He loves to give. There are no excuses for us to be in the dark about Jesus’ second coming. We are to be children of the light. Let’s educate ourselves before it’s too late!

God is so Holy that no human can stand before Him as we are. Our souls are full of sin and our bodies are full of weakness and death. Jesus took our sins when He died on the cross. When you believe in Him, God credits Jesus’ righteousness to you, and your soul is clean.

But there’s still the problem of our bodies. If we’re going to live with a perfect and immortal God on the New Earth, we need perfect and immortal bodies. No amount of working out or eating right will ever make any of us fit enough to live with God. We can’t resurrect ourselves, make ourselves perfect, or make our bodies immortal. God Himself would have to raise us from the dead and give us eternal bodies. He promises to do just that for those who believe in Jesus. On the day of the resurrection of the true church, followers of Messiah will receive brand new bodies, in the twinkling of an eye.

“Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: 
“Death is swallowed up in victory.” 
“O Death, where is your sting?
O Hades, where is your victory?”
1 Corinthians 15:51-55

Claim your new body today! It’s free. Jesus already paid the price when He died on the cross. His resurrection is proof that our resurrection is coming next. Jesus was the first human (the God-man) who God raised into an immortal body, and you can be raised too. All you have to is believe. Jesus is Savior. He is the Messiah, the Son of God. You can believe right now, right where you are. Just believe that Jesus is the only God who came down to earth in a human body. He died for your sins on the cross, and He was raised to life so that you could be raised too!

Believe, receive the Holy Spirit, and look forward to getting a brand new body on the day of our resurrection. It’s that simple.

“God so loved the world that He sent His one and only son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” – John 3:16

Evil is rampant today. The world seems to be overcome by war, horrific shootings, natural disasters, and plagues. Believe it or not, things are not nearly as bad as they could be. It’s hard to imagine, I know, but God tells us in His Word, the Bible, that times are going to get much worse (Matthew 24:21). And God is never wrong.

Right now, the world still has something going for it—Christians, as in, people who believe Jesus of Nazareth is the Savoir, the Messiah. As I type these words, the Holy Spirit is leading Christians everywhere to pray against the evil forces currently plaguing Earth. Jesus, our High Priest in Heaven, hears our prayers, brings them before the Father, and God restrains evil from its fullest expression. Yes, evil events still occur, but not nearly to the degree to which Satan would like. The fact that there are any humans left on the earth is a result of the restraining work of God.

I know, you’re wondering why God permits evil and suffering in the first place. If the topic of evil interests you, please research it for yourself. It’s been covered many times over by almost every Biblical scholar I can call to mind. There’s a reason for evil, and there’s the hope that evil will not always be. One day, God will cleanse the earth of evil.

Back to the topic of the restraining of evil. Right now, as you’re reading this article, God is restraining something truly evil from happening to Earth. He’s holding back the Anti-Christ from rising to power and dominating the world. Just imagine if Hitler had succeeded in taking over the planet. That would have been super bad. Pure evil would have dominated the world. 

The world might be safe from Hitler for now, but the time will come when the evilest dictator ever will dominate everything. In the years leading up to Christ’s return, the Satan-possessed anti-Christ will rise to power, and this AC will rule the whole world. Basically, Satan will take over planet Earth for a (brief) time.

Satan’s AC cannot rise to power, however, until the restrainer, the Holy Spirit, is taken out of the world. Christians, inside of whom the Holy Spirit dwells, must first be removed from Earth. The Bible puts it this way:

And you know what restrains him [Satan’s anti-Christ] now, so that he will be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains [the Holy Spirit, who in-dwells Christians] will do so until He is removed. –2 Thessalonians 6:6-7

The restrainer, the Holy Spirit, will be removed from the earth on the day Jesus takes Christians up to be with Him, in an event called the rapture (aka, the resurrection of the church). On that day, Jesus Himself will descend from heaven and catch up all Christians to meet Him in the air. Those who are dead will be raised to life and caught up first. Then, those who are alive will follow. All Christians will receive their resurrected bodies at this time (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).

When Jesus catches up His Christians, the earth will be without us, our prayers, and most importantly—the restraining ministry of the Holy Spirit. Yes, the Spirit will continue to minister to the earth through the two witnesses and the tribulation saints, but His mission to restrain the AC will be complete on the day Christians are raptured.

On that day Jesus, who is currently seated at God’s right hand, will begin to transition from His position as our Heavenly High Priest to His role as Judge and King. Without the Holy Spirit, Christian prayers, and the intercession of Jesus as Heaven’s High Priest, the world will have nothing standing between it and God’s wrath.

At God’s command, the apocalypse will commence. Jesus will break the seals of judgment, and God will turn the world over to Satan, the master humankind has chosen for itself, having rejected God and His ways. God will unleash His wrath on the unbelieving world by giving Satan and His demons unrestrained freedom to do what they’ve always wanted to do to humans—plunge them into utter chaos and darkness.

Thank God that this time of world domination by Satan’s AC, Earth’s darkest hour, will only last for a time. Jesus will return, obliterate evil, and rule the world with light and truth.

Until the rapture, Christians must pray to the point of sweat and tears. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we must restrain evil for as long as possible so the good news of Jesus can reach the ends of the Earth, giving all humans, everywhere, a chance to accept Jesus as Savior. All humans can escape Hell, as well as, the terror that will befall the world following the rapture, should they live to see that day. All a human has to do is believe that Jesus saves us from our sins.

At this very moment, you can escape Hell and the coming wrath of God. You can sign on for the rapture. You can receive a resurrected body and eternal life with Christ. All you have to do is believe that Jesus came to earth, died on the cross to take away your sin, and that God raised him to life so that you too may be raised to life. Believe that Jesus is the Son of God, the Savior of the world, the Messiah. Believe and receive eternal life. Believe and escape the eternal fires of Hell. Believe and live with God in paradise for eternity!

The Book of Revelation is the only book of the Bible that explicitly promises a blessing for reading it and keeping it. The whole Bible is a blessing, but there is a particular reward from God awaiting those who are ready for the return of Jesus.

Get ready for Jesus today. Study the Book of Revelation. Read it out loud. Teach it to others. Keep the promise of Jesus’ return near to your heart and ever on your lips.

Blessed is the one who reads, and those who hear the words of the prophecy and keep the things which are written in it; for the time is near. – Revelation 1:3
