Prophecy Update 2012-02-05

Notes Additional file Play

-For today’s prophecy update, I’ve sensed from the leading of the Holy Spirit, the need to share with you what’s been on my heart, as of late. -I had an entirely different prophecy update planned for today but changed it on Thursday when I realized what was really happening in my heart. -I’ve been both studying and teaching Bible prophecy, even before entering the pastorate, for over 20 years, and now find myself beside myself.

-Let me explain, the swiftness with which prophetic puzzle pieces are put in place, is creating a boggling of my mind, and a burning in my heart. -I find myself, fighting myself and containing myself, so as to not be perceived as some cooky crazy preacher who still believes Jesus is coming. -I know it’s becoming less popular as people mock, scoff and ridicule us, However, I still believe that; not only is Jesus coming, He’s at the door!

-That’s what I want to share with you today! I want to talk about why the rapture of the bride of Christ, is so much closer than any of us think. -In order to do this, I’ll begin by presenting a number of news headlines, none of which are in any particular order, and all of which are recent. -So, what follows are the day and date of the news story, the source of the news story, and finally, and most importantly the headline itself.

-Now, did you happen to notice a common thread that was woven into the fabric of all of these headlines that I just quickly read through to you? -If you are one who saw the common denominator as the urgency in the time-line with which everything must take place, then you are watching. -Here’s what I’m thinking, it would stand to reason that with all that is on the geopolitical table prophetically, there has to be a deadline globally.

-In other words, for the life of me, I can’t imagine a scenario in which you could push the pause or even the stop button on all that’s taking place. -In terms of just the logic alone, there would have to be a shelf life, if you will, or an expiration date, if you prefer, on what we see happening now. -Years ago I had a well respected Bible teacher, and author tell me that it was conceivable that we still had at least 10 years before the rapture.

-This was actually 12 years ago and at that time I concurred with what he said however, I believe he’d be hard pressed to hold that view today. -Let me hasten to say because we know neither the day nor the hour we are to be as ready today as we would be if it were 10 years from today. -Having said that and with the understanding that having 10 more years is certainly possible, I’m having a very hard time seeing it as probable.

-Allow me to bring this prophecy update to a close by suggesting a thought that at first glance may have the appearance of being sort of silly. -Here it is, do you think that God would tease us with something like this? Do you believe that He would actually dangle the rapture in front of us?

-I don’t. If the truth be known, the opposite is true. Wouldn’t our Bridegroom be even more excited than us as His bride for our wedding day? -After courting my “bride-to-be” for two years, and asking her to marry me, I was counting down the hours, and marking off days, until that day. -Consider this passage in the 19th chapter of Revelation, beginning in verse four, and as I read it, listen for the unspeakable excitement in it.
