Why I believe we are closer to the End Times than ever before
Amen pastor Jimmy... Come Lord Jesus... Come quick. ☺️
Our church never talks about this and I feel like it is so important to understand the times and signs going on around us.
I’m grateful for the teaching you are providing on prophecy the book of revelstion and end times. What a glorious hope we have and Heaven is awaiting our homecoming (this is what to teach and talk about with children). Ant recommendations on other end times books including Study:commentaries on revelations?
One of the children’s workers at my church asked me how she should present the “Rapture” to the kids “without scaring them” (elementary aged). Any suggestions?
Yes, I hear this as well, that generations before us thought that Jesus was coming in their generation as well, and He didn’t, so why bother? My standard answer to that is that it was their BLESSED HOPE as well!! It is how we get through whatever our generation is dishing up! In fact every generation needs the BLESSED HOPE and one of these generations will be it! But it is almost as though they use this argument so they can believe something else, that is not nearly as well supported from the Bible. Why? Who is teaching this persuasion? And why would the Church be so turned off at having the Blessed Hope? Is it just too hard to get our heads around? I agree the big difference for this generation is 1949, to say the least. Just when we are closer than ever, and the Church should be more excited than ever, for the RETURN of Jesus for His Bride, the opposite seems true. None the less. I am excited. Very excited! And glad for all the info! A new beginning, in a changed forever World! The Blessed Hope! Come Lord Jesus! Come today!
Awesome recap, Jimmy! FYI, my wife and I are thinking about coming to your marriage conference in Pittsburgh in April (we live in Philadelphia). Please pray for the LORD to provide a way for us to attend :-)
Thank you Jimmy! I wish all pastors were awake enough to teach on this. Thank you.
Thank you, Jimmy Evans, for keeping us informed and focused. My subscription is worth every penny and more.
Jimmy, I have been following your teachings for the past two years and you have brought me so much closer to God. Thank you for that. I have a question that is puzzling me with the timeline. I believe you said it is very possible that the rapture could take place this year. I Googled, how long it would take to rebuild the Temple. And it said with today’s technology, probably around 10 years. So if the rapture ushers in the start of the seven year tribulation, how would it be possible for the desolation of abomination to take place after 3.5 years?
We can also be assured that we are that generation of Christ's return because this will not take place until the "third day". 2 Pet 3:8 states, But beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. It has been "2" days (2000 years) since the Lord's death/resurrection and 6000 years lease is up on this earth. We are the 3rd day christians and going home soon!!
Jimmy, I have a serious question, & want to know what you think. Everyone talks about the "generation that will not pass away til all these things are fulfilled" as being a generation of time. But I have heard others, like Mark Hitchcock, suggest that that is not what it means at all. They say if you dig deep into the interpretation of that, it means that the generation actually means the Jews living in the last half of the tribulation will not pass away until everything is fulfilled. That they will be protected by God. I know it's not what most people have been raised to believe or interpret, but is this correct? What if the generation is not actually a time period, but talking about the Jews? I hear so much lately about "rightly dividing the Word", & most people know that Matthew 24 is about the Jews, not the church. I don't want to make mistakes, or be believing the wrong thing. If you have the time, could you research this & let me know what your thoughts are? If it is true, I'd rather be in the minority & be believing the right thing, than be in the majority & be believing the wrong thing. Everyone is trying to pin down a timeline to the rapture, & I don't believe that is the right thing to do.... especially if the "generation" is talking about the Jews. Appreciate your answer, & I will be looking for it. I do not believe this is a common question, because I think 99% of people think 70-80 years from 1948 is the generation in Matt.24. Sorry for the lengthy question, but is it referring to the generation of Jews in the last half of the trib not passing until all is fulfilled?
Pastor Jimmy, you've taught us the importance of gaining wisdom & knowledge and understanding on the end times teachings from the Word. Thank you for making your posts clear & current, although not easy at times to read about the birth pains happening now & coming, always life-changing. One of the most exciting posts (for me) you wrote on 9/10/20 was about the return of Elijah and the RESTORATION of the family. “Look, I am sending you the prophet Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the Lord arrives. His preaching will turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers. Malachi 4:5 You shared that just before Jesus returns, Elijah comes back to prepare the way.... "we should expect a greater prophetic fulfillment of Elijah’s family-restoring ministry before Jesus returns. Elijah “will restore all things." You also mentioned that today.... we can all speak up for the vulnerable in the spirit & power of Elijah. WOW! This gives us incredible hope. I would LOVE to learn more about this-- looking for the return of Elijah (don't want to miss this miracle) We won't know the identity of the antichrist, but definitely sounds like we will know when Elijah comes back....do you feel he's already here?
Praying his return is in 2021!
This is GOLD, as usual. Thanks for this great resource.
I really believe that Jesus is soon to come, seems like when a disaster occurred it is every where not in one or two states, but every where. In some states all churches are closed that is scary, ice storms and snow storms everywhere, pandemic everywhere and the list goes on. Praying time
Does the Bible say if the new temple must be built before the rapture? The temple still seems a few years off?
