As we all know, there are MANY views on the end times. So why not hear other people out who don’t share your view? Then weigh what they say by going to the Bible to see what the Holy Spirit has revealed regarding the Second Coming of Christ. How will you discover the truth if you don’t read and study the scriptures? If and when you debate someone who disagrees with your view, remember Peter’s admonition to be gentle and respectful of that person. “But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.” 1 Peter 3:15
So with this in mind, Gary DeMar offers his view of prophecy in a piece over at American Vision. He writes:
If someone burps in the Middle East, the end-time speculators come out of the woodwork and claim that this time it’s the end. People said the end was near more than 100 years ago when Europe went to war, and 51 years ago when Hal Lindsey wrote The Late Great Planet Earth, and 20 years ago when the Sabbath Millennium was said to start.
The rapture and the antichrist have once again taken center stage. What is past is said to be in our near future. Just wait, this time it’s going to happen just like Jesus said it would.
After I repeatedly pointed out on a few Facebook pages that no verse says the church will not be taken to heaven in something called “the rapture” (see my book The Rapture and the Fig Tree Generation) before, during, or after years and that the specifically defined antichrists (1 John 2:22; 4:3; John 2:7) were alive in John’s day as evidence of soon to occur prophetic event (1 John 2:18), I was called a false teacher and a heretic.
