THERE IS A RAPTURE – BUT WHEN DOES IT OCCUR? IS IT PART OF THE FIRST RESURRECTION?

A RAPTURE DEBATE BETWEEN GOOD FRIENDS

Perusing many comments on my Facebook page regarding the Day of the Lord (and the prior Hot Seat I did with Gary Huffman), I still see a number of people that say the rapture is a lie, the rapture doesn’t happen, believers that accept the doctrine of the rapture have been duped.  But is that really an accurate view of what scripture teaches?  It is one thing to argue that the rapture doesn’t happen separately from the visible return of Christ spoken of in Matthew 24, Luke 21, and Revelation 19:11-19.  It is a

WHY REVELATION’S SEVEN HILLS IDENTIFY MORE THAN ROME

Revelation 17:9, “And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.”

When Describing the Harlot and the Beast, the Context is Always Symbolic

The first reaction of most prophecy pundits is that the seven mountains upon which the woman sitteth are the seven hills of Rome.

For those of us who focus much of our attention on Bible Prophecy, there are lessons to be learned.

And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. (Revelation 17:1,2)

The greatest mystery of all biblical mysteries in the Bible is known as “Mystery Babylon.”  Surrounding it are many other mysteries, foremost of which are the identities of the two beasts that are … Read More

The Sheeriyth Imperative – An Exposé on What You Need to Know to Battle Evil

A New Book By Dr. Michael Lake, Reviewed by S. Douglas Woodward

After authoring a dozen books over the past seven years, I’m a bit jaded.  Being an author and publisher, I am apt to read many manuscripts and scan many titles on the areas I research and write about. New titles I come across don’t often impress me much.  But The Sheeriyth Imperative is one that does.  The full title is The Sheeriyth Imperative:  Empowering the Remnant to Overcome the Gates of Hell (Defender Publishing, 2016).  This book lays it on heavy, demanding readers don their spiritual thinking cap … Read More
