Are There Any Prophecies Left To Be Fulfilled?
Updated: Jan 24, 2022
Pastors today like to say the rapture could happen at ANY moment! It could happen today! It could happen before the end of this service!
What prophesy does the bible say has to take place before the rapture takes place, before Jesus comes again?
2 Thessalonians 2:3 ... for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition...
"That day", ie the Rapture, the second coming of Jesus Christ, shall not come UNTIL the man of sin be revealed.
Question: Has the man of sin been revealed?
I don't know who he is. If I missed it then please let me know.
How will we know the man of sin has been revealed? 2 Thessalonians 2:4 ... so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
It is going to be a BIG DEAL the day someone goes into the temple of God and sits down showing himself to be God. That will be a worldwide event. Psst... and it won't be a secret. That's what the word REVEALED means.
The Rapture Calculator website is based on one event... when the antichrist makes the covenant with many. THAT 'event' takes place 3.5 years BEFORE the man of sin is revealed. I'm not sure everybody will know when he makes that covenant. But, everybody WILL know when the antichrist walks into the temple and proclaims himself God. When that happens EVERYBODY in the world will know and then...
the Rapture will take place 75 days later. GUARANTEED!
You can wait until the antichrist makes the covenant with many to get saved. You can wait until the day the man of sin is revealed to get saved. But, if you do that then you won't be saved. Why? You'll be putting your faith in an event and not in the person of Jesus Christ.
Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Salvation happens when you hear the gospel, the story about the life, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ and choose to believe... you choose to put your faith in Jesus as the propitiation for your sins.
Salvation requires nothing more than faith. SEEING the antichrist make the covenant with many is not faith. SEEING the man of sin sit in the temple and proclaim himself God is NOT faith. If you are waiting for these events then you are waiting for evidence.
The bible says... faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things NOT SEEN. If you're waiting to see the evidence then you'll never be saved.
