Rapture Bible Prophecy Forum

(Rapture is a Vatican/Jesuit Lie )
The "Resurrection" has been erroneously labeled The "Rapture". 



While Yahusha/JESUS was alive, He prayed to His Father: "I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  John 17:15 (KJV)

Yahusha/JESUS gave signs of what must happen before His Return:  "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:"  Matt. 24:29 (KJV)

We are followers of Yahusha/JESUS Only​​​​​​​

Yahusha is I Am That I Am  (Exodus 3:14)

Yahusha is YHWH  come in the flesh, He put aside His Diety to become a human, born of  a Virgin.

Yahusha is the Word, As The Most High, He spoke all things seen and unseen into existence

When YHWH created Light, He was revealed to the angels. 

John 14:26
"the breath of life"

But the Comforter, which is "the breath of life", whom the Father will send shall teach you all things.

God is not His  Name but a term.  The Holy Spirit is not a person but the very Breath of the Father.

There is no Trinity.  The Father, YHVH  and Yahusha are One  (John 10:30)

The Demise Of Islam And The Seven Years Of World Peace And Prosperity

Robert Hall


The NEXT WAR in the Middle East is NOT going to be the Ezekiel 38&39 war as some today fear/believe! I believe that the next Middle Eastern war is prophesied in Psalm 83 and is going to destroy Islam and bring about a time of WORLD peace and prosperity which will last for a MINIMUM of seven years. The IDF will secure peace for Israel AND, for the rest of the world! (Amen!) Then, the "Third Temple" will be built DURING the seven years of WORLD peace and prosperity which follows. (King David secured peace for Israel and THEN, his son Solomon built the "First Temple" in seven years.)

Muslims will NEVER... ALLOW... the Israelis to have peace - BECAUSE... their presence in lands that (ONCE) belonged to "Allah" ("Al-Ilah" - "the idol") is a SLAP in "Al-Ilah's" face that THEY... INTEND to rectify! The NEXT war in the Middle East will (apparently) bring about the DESTRUCTION OF ISLAM and a time of "peace and security" and PROSPERITY... TO THE WHOLE WORLD which should last for a MINIMUM of seven years just as seven years of "plenty" preceded the seven years of famine in Joseph's day. (Gen. Chs. 37-50) Ezekiel 38&39 is NOT... ABOUT... to be fulfilled! There ARE... "THINGS"... that MUST... happen FIRST!

The "seven years of plenty" followed by "seven years of famine" in Joseph's day was a "type" of the seven years of WORLD "peace and prosperity" that is coming (during which, the "Third Temple" will be built). It will be followed by... "the Rapture of the Church", "the Beginning of Sorrows", the Ezekiel 38&39 invasion of Israel (which is the beginning of World War III) and the seven-year long "Tribulation"/"Day of the Lord".

The seven years of WORLD peace and prosperity (should they occur) WILL (most likely) begin somewhere between 2012 and 2016AD (the next one to five years of the NEXT American Presidency. (This is written in early 2012 but published in November 2012.) It does NOT... matter... WHO the next American president is!) God NEVER HAS (and NEVER WILL)... JUDGE a "RIGHTEOUS" nation! (Amen!) Historically, he has ALWAYS judged the ungodly!

The "downward spiral" of this nation has been EVER increasing the more that the UNGODLY... THROW GOD ("Yahoveh" - NOT "Allah") OUT... of the public arena! This nation is presently "circling the drain". BUT... BEFORE it goes DOWN the drain, the Rapture of the Church will occur, and THEN, with the DEPARTURE of THE RIGHTEOUS... GOD WILL... JUDGE... THIS UNGODLY NATION! JUST as God's judgment could NOT fall on Sodom and Gomorrah UNTIL "righteous Lot" had departed from Sodom, even so, God's judgments CANNOT fall on this earth UNTIL "the righteous" (HIS "Church") are GONE! (Amen!)

Some believe that, IF the Israelis attack Iran in the coming months (of 2012/2013) that it will precipitate the Ezekiel 38&39 invasion of Israel. IT WILL CERTAINLY NOT! The conditions required in Ezekiel 38&39 to bring about the Ezekiel invasion do NOT YET EXIST! Most likely though it could and indeed MAY very well precipitate the NEXT war in the Middle East - the "Psalm 83 War"! -RH
The above statements are NOT... exactly what MOST prophecy teachers are saying these days. A LOT of Christians today watch the news and the economy, the housing market fiasco in America and ALL of the LUNACY going on in Washington and the Middle East and Europe and Russia and conclude that the western Church and America are ABOUT to go THROUGH some VERY... DIFFICULT... times in the VERY... NEAR... future (possibly even including PERSECUTION and possibly even the "EXTERMINATION"... BY OUR OWN GOVERNMENT of "western" Christians in "concentration camps"). (THIS, CERTAINLY will NOT happen BEFORE the Rapture of the Church!)

SOME are even advising people to store up at least a three month supply of food, water and other things (even weapons and ammo, seeds and medicines, water purification equipment, et cetera) because they believe that BAD THINGS are just around the corner because of what they see with their eyes and hear with their ears on the news or read in other publications and media. AND, it really DOES... SOUND... LIKE... BAD THINGS... ARE COMING... that Christians (as well as non-christians) DO... NEED... to prepare for! (And, perhaps we DO... (ALL) NEED to make SOME kind of preparations for SOME THINGS in the future, like natural disasters, etc.)

Perhaps it WOULD be a good thing to have a three month (or more) supply of canned and dried foods and some way to purify water (like a solar still, or "prill beads" or water filters [like "Zero Water Filters], etc.) Because, who knows when and where the next natural disaster (tsunami, earthquake, tornado, hurricane, cyclone, typhoon, flood, et cetera, may strike - much less all of these other things)?

ALL of the talk about future food, water and fuel shortages, hyperinflation and economic collapse, societal collapse, riots, looting, chaos and anarchy and internment camps and wars, et cetera, ARE ALARMING!... BUT!... IS... THIS... THE PICTURE... THAT THE PROPHECIES OF THE BIBLE PAINT FOR US ABOUT THE FUTURE, JUST BEFORE... THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH AND THE SEVEN YEAR "TRIBULATION"?

And the answer to this question is, NO... IT IS NOT! After over 25 years of studying God's prophetic word since the Spring of 1986 (a study into which the Lord Jesus HIMSELF initiated me) I have had NO OTHER CHOICE... BUT, to CONCLUDE that the rapture of the Church occurs BEFORE the seven-year "Tribulation" BEGINS. It is THE... ONLY... LOGICAL choice, ONCE you consider ALL... of the LOGICAL DIFFICULTIES of ALL... of the other AVAILABLE CHOICES!

BUT, BEFORE the Rapture and the events which follow it, the prophetic scriptures tell us that a SHORT TIME of world "peace and security" and prosperity will precede the Rapture, the "Tribulation", the "Day of the Lord" and the Ezekiel 38&39 invasion of Israel. The reason that it MUST PRECEDE it is because there is NO world peace OR prosperity DURING the entire seven-year long "Tribulation". If there were, it would NOT be "TRIBULATION"! There is NOTHING BUT destructions and devastations from God from the beginning to the end of the seven years of the Tribulation.

I believe that this coming time of world peace and prosperity will last a minimum of seven years, just as seven years of "plenty" preceded the seven years of famine in Joseph's day. (Genesis 41-4 It will be a time when the Church AND the world will "go to sleep" in "the night". This coming "night" will precede the rapture of the Church. It is the "night" that Jesus spoke of in John 9:4 and Matthew 25:1-13 in the parable of the "ten virgins" who ALL fall into a "deep sleep" in "the night" and are SUDDENLY awakened at "midnight". It will be at the height of the "Laodicean Church Age", which is gathering momentum right now! (Rev.3:14-22) The "Emerging Church" will be the majority church in the last days, but it's future will be an abysmally short one.

I realize that SOME believe that the Olivet Discourse ("OD") is NOT about the Church and contains NO information FOR the Church. In Part Five which is about "Peace and Prosperity BEFORE the Rapture", I will explain how and why they are mistaken. The OD INDEED IS... written SOLELY to Jewish believers who ARE in Israel AFTER the Rapture of the Church. BUT, the (pre-trib) Rapture is only ONE of the many "signs" (to Jewish believers) of his coming. PARTS... of Matthew 24&25 describe the Rapture and events and conditions that precede it since the Rapture is only ONE of the "sign"(s) to the Jews left behind, of his coming.

"I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; [because] THE NIGHT is coming when no one can work." (John 9:4 NKJV)

"But while the bridegroom [Jesus] was delayed, they ALL (ALL of "Christendom") slumbered and slept. “And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ Then ALL those virgins arose [from their deep sleep] and trimmed their lamps."
(Matthew 25:5-7 NKJV)

Here it must be asked, "What exactly IS this "night" that Jesus is prophesying of in which the Church "goes to sleep" and in which, it can NO LONGER "WORK"? ) That this parable is about the Church OUGHT to be obvious! During the seven year long Tribulation, WHO is going to be able to "sleep" and be UNAWARE of the continuing and on-going destructions and devastating things going on around them in the world? During the Tribulation there is NOTHING... BUT... mega-death, destruction and devastation from beginning to end! WHO is going to be able to "sleep" in the midst of ALL of the ongoing destructions and devastations of the "Tribulation"? The Church certainly CANNOT be IN the seven-year "Tribulation" because of these things!

Jesus HIMSELF prophesies that his Church IS GOING to "go to sleep" in some FUTURE "NIGHT"! What can this future "NIGHT" possibly be? We KNOW that it CANNOT be "persecution" or "poverty" or or a time of "war(s)" or "tribulation(s)"! The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ has NEVER "gone to SLEEP" during times of war, or poverty or persecution or "tribulation"! It has NEVER been UNABLE to "work" DURING these conditions! INDEED, the Lord's Church has ALWAYS... GROWN GREATLY and THRIVED during these kinds of conditions!

Like Israel of old, the Church "goes to sleep" ONLY when there is "peace and security" and prosperity, and WHEN there is NO war or persecution or "tribulation"! Jesus is speaking of the "Laodicean Church Age", the FINAL age of the Church, a "Church" that is, "rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked —" (Revelation 3:17 NKJV).

This is THE final "Age" of the Church. THIS church is NOT persecuted! This church is "RICH" and "BLIND"! In other words they cannot see the prophesied things that are about to come upon them in the future! This is the condition of the MAJORITY of churches in the world JUST before the rapture of the Church! And, we see it gathering more and more momentum NOW, in our own day! The vast majority of churches are departing from "absolute truth" for "relativism".

We are in the final "AGE" of the Church - the age of the "Laodicean church". The (so called) "Emergent Church" has departed from the "love of the truth" and the authority of scripture as THE written WORD OF GOD, to pursue a "social gospel"! "Apostasy" is growing in the churches in EVERY "denomination"! Just look at the lack of concern for the lost in MOST churches today!
Any church that does NOT support missions to seek and save the lost is basically just a "religious social club" sitting around in suits and ties and gowns congratulating themselves on how "blessed" they are! (AND, "Let's bring in those less fortunate than us (financially) BUT, let's NOT scare them off by telling them they are "sinners" in need of a "savior"!)

What good does it do to improve people's financial and social conditions WITHOUT introducing them to the ONLY Savior (the Lord Jesus Christ) who can give them ETERNAL LIFE, take them to his "Father's House", to their VERY OWN mansion in Heaven FOREVER and deliver them FROM HELL?!!

The "Philadelphian Church Age" (Rev. 3:7-13) was/is the age of the "Evangelical", "Pentecostal" and "Charismatic" churches of the eighteenth through the early twenty-first century. Some will STILL exist during the "Laodicean Church Age" but they will be in the minority (and, NO ONE will LISTEN TO THEM anymore)! (This includes Pentecostals and Charismatics also!) Of them, Jesus says in the Revelation;

"Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth." (Revelation 3:10 NKJV)

The "Philadelphian Church" (the faithful "Evangelical Church" [of the 21st century] will be KEPT "from the hour of trial" (the "Tribulation") and taken to the "Father's house" (the New Jerusalem) at the Rapture. The Laodicean "church" (the "five foolish virgins") will be left behind. The "Philadelphian Church" will go INTO the wedding feast of the Lamb as the five "wise virgins" do. The Laodicean church (the five foolish virgins) will NOT enter in because Jesus himself says that HE DOES NOT KNOW THEM! They will suffer through the Tribulation! The "wise virgins" will become the "bride of Christ". The "foolish virgins" will become the "bride" of the antichrist.

You know, it is only natural that, when "the night" (John 9:4) comes, "no man can work". When the work day is done, and the "night" comes, it is TIME to "go to bed" and "go to sleep" and to GET READY for A NEW DAY! This is what Jesus is speaking of in these scriptures! Jesus said, "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and THEN shall the end come." (Mat.24:14 KJV)

When the "gospel" (the "good news") of the death and resurrection of Jesus and the forgiveness of sin, and of the AVAILABILITY of ETERNAL LIFE (to ALL who "CHOOSE" to believe "the GOSPEL") has gone out into ALL the world to "take a people for his name out of EVERY tribe, tongue, people and nation", THEN, "THE END" will come! THEN, "the night" (John 9:4) will come and "Christendom" will "go to sleep"... BEFORE the Rapture! Then, at "mid-night", the Lord Jesus will awaken his "Bride" (the Church) and come for her "in the night" and take her to his "Father's house" (John 14:1-3) where the "marriage" will take place and be "consummated".

There will be NO wars going on when the Rapture occurs, NO persecution of Christians; there WILL BE world peace and security and prosperity. The "Laodicean Church" will "go to sleep" BECAUSE, it is "rich", "blind" and "in need of nothing" (unaware of approaching, imminent destruction.) It will NOT be being persecuted, and there are NO wars going on (because Islam will no longer exist! Amen!)

Scripture does NOT come right out and DEFINITIVELY tell us WHEN the Rapture is going to be, whether it is to be "pre-tribulation", "mid", "post" (or "other"). BUT, after considering ALL... of the arguments of ALL of the other, different views, THE... most... LOGICAL CHOICE... is a "pre-Tribulation" Rapture!

On one side of the Rapture the scriptures tell us there is WORLD peace and security and prosperity with no wars or persecution or poverty, during which, the Church and the world "goes to sleep", "in the night", unaware of the "Day of the Lord" approaching "like a thief in the night". And, on the other side of the Rapture there is "tribulation", WWIII, persecution, mega-death and destruction, meteor, asteroid and comet strikes, the "mark of the beast", WWIV and then finally, "Armageddon" (all spanning seven years) with the opening of the Second Seal taking PEACE from the earth at the VERY BEGINNING of "the Tribulation"!

You CANNOT convince me that the Church is going to "go to sleep" through the first half (OR through the whole seven years) of the Tribulation when nothing BUT... wars, persecutions, destructions and natural disasters are going on! The Church can ONLY "go to sleep" BEFORE the "Tribulation" begins! (The Church can ONLY "go to sleep" when there is peace and prosperity and a LACK of wars and persecution!) (Amen!) DURING the seven years of the Tribulation, NO ONE is going to be "sleeping" because, DURING the seven years of the Tribulation, there is NOTHING... BUT... wars and persecutions, death and destructions and natural disasters FROM BEGINNING TO END!

The probable reason that God did NOT give us a definite time for the Rapture to occur appears to be three-fold: 1) He deliberately WANTED to CAUSE controversy which would cause his people to "dig" into his word and DILIGENTLY search out for themselves what the truth REALLY IS about coming future events. 2) He wanted to gain eternal glory for himself. And, 3) he wanted those who know and love him and and his word and WHO LOVE THE TRUTH to gain eternal glory for themselves by DILIGENTLY... SEARCHING his Word for the truth UNTIL they arrive at it! The scriptures ALSO tell us that God places HIS WORD... ABOVE... his own reputation! (Psalm 138:

As Proverbs 25:2 says, "It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter." (Proverbs 25:2 NKJV)

Because God is omniscient, he knows the future and he could EASILY have told us EXACTLY when the Rapture would occur so that there would have been no controversy over it at all. BUT, he CHOSE... NOT to do so because he had these other things in mind. Proverbs 25:2 tells us that it is to the glory of God to conceal a matter and to make men have to search out his intended meaning. Those who arrive at the truth of the "matter" (because of their love for God and his Word and because of their love for and DESIRE for THE TRUTH) will receive an eternal "glory" for it and so will God! (Don't let biblically ignorant men CONVINCE you to NOT study God's prophetic Word!)

SO, there is a great and ETERNAL reward for diligently studying God's prophetic word and EARNESTLY desiring to arrive at the CORRECT understanding of it. Because of this eternal reward, EVERY Christian should EARNESTLY DESIRE to study prophecy. And, biblical PROPHECY (what God's Word teaches about the future) is THE... MOST... FASCINATING... of ALL... of the subjects of the Bible to study! It is a mystery for the detective in each of us to solve. It is a picture puzzle that MUST... be studied INTENSIVELY and CLOSELY EXAMINED from EVERY angle in order to assemble it correctly. ONCE... you get ALL of the pieces CORRECTLY assembled, the "Big Picture" of God's prophetic word about the future appears before your amazed eyes! BUT, you cannot do it without help from teachers! DON'T let the false teachings of men cheat you out of the reward that God has for you! It is to your own eternal glory (as well as to his) to search this matter out carefully in God's prophetic word UNTIL you EVENTUALLY arrive at the truth! (If you TRULY, WANT to know the truth, GOD will arrange it!)

There have been things in the past that I have believed about God's prophetic Word, but when MORE understanding comes, I have had to CHANGE my beliefs and BRING THEM INTO LINE with God's WRITTEN WORD! This is something that we ALL have to do IF... we wish to arrive at THE SAME UNDERSTANDING OF THE TRUTH that God has! (Amen!) It is God's desire that ALL of his children arrive at the SAME understanding of HIS WORD that HE has. (Amen!) ONLY THEN, can WE see the "Big Picture" of the future AS HE SEES IT!

Prophecy MAY be a difficult subject, BUT, just because a subject is difficult should NOT stand in the way of our desire and attempt to understand it! Physics IS a difficult subject! BUT, difficulty should NOT stand in our way IF we TRULY... DESIRE to study a subject and earnestly DESIRE to arrive at the CORRECT understanding of it!

There are MANY teachers... ALL with different ideas about Physics (or any other subject). You MUST study as many of their ideas as possible until you finally SORT THROUGH THEM ALL and arrive at a conclusion that is satisfactory to you. It is the same with the study of biblical truths. The only difference is, nearly one third of the Bible is prophetic (things about the future). God MUST... have THOUGHT that it is VERY... IMPORTANT, that his children study his prophetic word and "arrive" at a CORRECT UNDERSTANDING... OF THE FUTURE, OR, he would NOT have devoted SO MUCH of his WORD to JUST ONE SUBJECT! (Amen?)

Because there are many teachers of prophecy just as there are of Physics or History, et cetera, sitting under the instruction of just ONE teacher is just NOT the way to arrive at the CORRECT understanding of the truth! God gives us different teachers, because he has given different INSIGHTS to DIFFERENT teachers. NOT MANY have ALL of the truth (the "Big Picture") about ANY subject! God NEVER... gave ANY... of the Old Testament prophets the WHOLE "Big Picture" of the future! He gave bits and pieces of "the Big Picture" to EACH of the prophets which are scattered ALL over the Bible!

IF we, today, want to understand "the Big Picture" of the future as God sees it, it is up to each of us to CORRECTLY assemble ALL of the various parts of the prophetic puzzle (which are scattered ALL over the Bible in little pieces) into one "Big Picture" of the future! Different Bible teachers have different insights into ALL of these different pieces of the prophetic puzzle. And, just like a picture puzzle, ALL... of the pieces MUST fit CORRECTLY... IF... you TRULY... WANT to SEE the "Big Picture" (AS GOD SEES IT)! IF... the pieces are assembled INCORRECTLY, the picture is distorted and contradictions abound. When assembled correctly, EACH piece of the puzzle will complement the pieces around it - not contradict or conflict with them!

In 1 Peter 1:16-19, Peter stated that EVEN THOUGH he had been an eye witness of the vision of the second coming of Jesus on the Mount of Transfiguration, HE BELIEVED that the WRITTEN prophetic Word of God (the OT prophets) was/is MORE "sure" (secure, safe, reliable) than ANY "vision" or dream that anyone today might have. In fact, anyone (TODAY) who has a vision or dream or prophetic word that CONTRADICTS God's WRITTEN WORD, get as far away from them as you can and don't EVER go around them again! God does NOT (in these last days) give "new" revelation that contradicts his written Word - the Bible!

Isaac Newton is considered to be the greatest scientist that has EVER lived! He said, "If I seem to see FARTHER than other men, it is because I stand on the shoulders of giants." In other words, he credited his great scientific discoveries to his teachers (whom he considered to be "giants") who had gone before him, whose writings and teachings he had believed and received and he used them as the foundation upon which he built his own great discoveries!

ANYONE who THINKS that they can just read the Bible for themselves and do NOT need teachers who have studied the Bible before them to HELP them arrive at the truth - is mistaken! (I am speaking of such difficult subjects as prophecy - NOT about such simple things as salvation. Anyone can read the Bible and get saved. [However, come to think of it, even the Ethiopian eunuch needed Phillip to help teach him the meaning of the prophetic scriptures in Isaiah 53 that he was reading in order to lead him to salvation!])

The scriptures tell us that God has given us apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers... to... TEACH... US! If we did not NEED teachers, God would NOT have given them to the Church in the "five-fold ministry"! Some use the excuse of 1 John 2:27 as a reason NOT to listen to others who TEACH the Word of God.

"But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him." (1 John 2:27 KJV)

God has given us apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers... TO TEACH US! The Bible tells us that there are FALSE apostles, prophets and teachers. Do you know what they all have in common with God's TRUE apostles, prophets and teachers? THEY ALL TEACH! The purpose of the "anointing" (that the apostle John spoke of in 1 John 2:27) is to HELP US DISCERN between the TRUE and the FALSE teachings of those who teach! ANYONE who says that they DON'T need a man to teach them is either IGNORANT, OR is in REBELLION against God! We ALL need teachers to teach us! That is WHY God GAVE "apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers" in the first place! (Ephesians 4:11-15) (Amen!)

Don't study just ONE viewpoint of JUST... ONE teacher! Study THEM ALL (or at least as many as you can afford! ("Buy the truth and sell it not!" That is, IF... you WANT to arrive at the truth! Of course, if you do NOT have a LOVE for or a desire for the truth then you will certainly NOT arrive at it!)

God has given different insights into the prophetic scriptures to MANY different teachers. By studying as many as you can (IF you know and love Jesus and God has given you a "love for the truth" and a "hunger" for his Word) God ("Yahoveh") will
