The Timing of the Rapture - Part Two

The Pre-Ezekiel 38 Rapture Possibility

By Bill Salus

Recently I authored an article regarded with the timing of the Rapture. It was part one in an article series, and addressed the three primary Pre-Psalm 83 views about the event. This article can be viewed here.

For part two I thought to try something different. Part two addresses the Pre-Ezekiel 38 viewpoint about the Rapture’s timing. But, rather than doing a typical exposition, I’m presenting an unedited excerpt out of my upcoming book called Revelation Road.

Rev - Road begins as a novel but includes a full chapter-by-chapter "Companion’s Commentary" section. In the commentary I explain why I declared what I did within the novel portion of the book. What you are about to read is a conversation between two lead characters in the novel section of the book regarded with the Pre-Ezekiel 38 timing of the Rapture. Read Part Two Now

Greater Mideast Geopolitical Update - Summer 2011

My dear friend Dr Lawrence Prabhakar Williams from India, who focuses on academic and policy research on strategic issues, sent me this recent Mideast update.

Bill,

I had yet another round of working group meetings anchored by the US National Defense University, Near East South Asia Center, Washington DC in Ankara, Turkey July 13-15 2011.

I came back home yesterday early morning. I thought I should send you the note of what I perceived the prevalent political and strategic mood in the Greater Middle East. By Greater Middle East, I imply the Psalms 83 10-member Arab coalition and the Ezekiel 38-39 9-member coalition. (Read Update Now)

The Big Squeeze Against Israel!

This week on Prophecy Update Radio Bill Koenig and Bill Salus talk about the “Big Squeeze” being put on by the international community against Israel. Israel is experiencing unprecedented pressure to divide the land in order to achieve peace with the Palestinians.

The Quartet can’t get the Jews and Palestinians to make peace, and as such, the U.N. will have to decide whether or not to approve a Palestinian State this September. The Obama Administration wants Israel to divide its land and recede back to its pre-1967 borders but Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says no way.

On May 24, 2011, before the U.S. Congress, Netanyahu declared that the land in question was not up for grabs. Summarily, Netanyahu addressed several key points relative to Israeli demands for peace,

1. Jerusalem WILL be the undivided capital of the Jewish State,

2. Millions of Palestinian Refugees WON'T be returning inside Israel,

3. The Palestinians MUST recognize Israel's right to exist as the sovereign Jewish State,

4. The Hamas – Fatah unity agreement MUST be abolished,

5. Palestinian unilateral attempts at Statehood through the United Nations MUST cease,

6. Israel maintains the RIGHT to defensible borders,

7. The Israeli demographic population changes since 1967 MUST be accepted, and

8. Israel WILL monitor Palestinian organizations and operations for national security purposes.

No one expects the Palestinians to approve of Netanyahu's laundry list of needs above. According to Genesis 12:3, Obama’s pressure could prove to be a costly mistake for Americans. War or peace; what’s next in the Middle East? And, what’s in store for America’s future?

The Timing of the Rapture

Part One - The 3 Pre-Psalm 83 Rapture views.

By Bill Salus

I am often asked whether the Rapture could occur before Psalm 83, or Ezekiel 38 find fulfillment. Absolutely! It could occur before, during, or after either event. This is possible because, like the Rapture, these events appear to conclude before the trib-period commences.

Explained below are three differing perspectives addressing the timing of Psalm 83 in relationship to the Rapture. They are, “Psalm 83 is now imminent,””The Church could be part of Psalm 83,” and “Israel, not the Church, is called “my people” when Psalm 83 occurs. Read entire article now

Israel Strikes it Rich Someday!

By Bill Salus

Ezekiel 36:8-12 informed that upon their return, the land of Israel would be tilled, sown, and become extremely fruitful. Ezekiel declares the historic ruins would be rebuilt and the ancient cities repopulated. In these passages, he predicts the Jews will be more prosperous than at any prior time in their history. This is a startling prediction considering the land of Israel lay mostly desolate between A.D. 70 and May, 1948 when Israel was restored as the Jewish State.

Presently, the cities are being rebuilt and repopulated, and Israel is becoming very prosperous, but have they accumulated all the riches Ezekiel predicted? Read entire article now

Those Surrounding Israel To Be Devoured!

By Bill Salus

The prophet Zechariah informs us in chapter 12 that those peoples surrounding Israel, will someday be devoured by Israel. The key to understanding portions of his prophecy rests in recognizing the direct correlation between Zechariah 12:2 and Zechariah 12:6.

Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. (Zec. 12:2, nkjv; emphasis added)

Questions
1. Can you explain Isaiah 19 (Egypt) as it relates to prophecy/end times?
2. Zechariah 14 talks about God standing on the mount of Olives but it says LORD (in all caps). Does that refer to God or Jesus? Why is Jesus called the everlasting Father in Isaiah 9?
3. Was Lucifer a choir leader in Heaven? Could he have had an 'instrument' of some sort built into his body?
4. Bill, please explain how you think the world will react if this war you speak of takes place?
5. How does Jesus' feet touching the mountain (Zechariah 14) "jive" with Revelation 19:11?
6. The seven year period (after the rapture)...are you saying it has to be more than a 7 year period?

Prophecy: Palestinians to be Forced to Israel's Borders!

By Bill Salus

All the men in your confederacy Shall force you to the border; The men at peace with you Shall deceive you and prevail against you. Those who eat your bread shall lay a trap for you. No one is aware of it. (Obadiah 1:7, NKJV; emphasis added)

The Arab Spring is rapidly morphing into the liberate Palestine Summer. Nakba, Naksa, Nic-nac-patty-wac, whatever the Arab name given in association with a day of Palestinian protests, it’s incubating into a potentially dangerous summer scenario for Israel that could soon prove disastrous for the Middle East.

Is the Arab Spring Setting up for Winter War?

In a last ditch effort to politically broker a final Arab state called Palestine, U.S. President Barrack Obama showed his Pro-Palestinian trump card. In May, 2011, with his left hand clenched in a seeming show of American solidarity for Israel’s security, Obama snuck his right hand into Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's cookie jar, and was caught red-handed attempting to pick-pocket Israel’s most prized possession; their homeland.

Obama's presidential play prompted Netanyahu to push his poker chips forward, lay all his cards on the table, and shout, "ISRAEL’S ALL IN!" Netanyahu seized the opportunity to call the U.S. President's and Palestinians bluff. The King of Israel revealed his Royal Flush, leaving little wiggle room for future Mideast peace negotiations.

His strict laundry list of conditions hit at the heart of every Palestinian contention. To the Palestinians, this was nothing short of a declaration of war. (Read entire article now.)

Is Ezekiel's Army About to Face Off with the Arabs?

by Bill Salus

So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army. (Ezekiel 37:10, nkjv).

Some bible teachers, like Joel Rosenberg and me, believe Ezekiel 37:10 describes an army, whereas other’s like Dr. Thomas Ice and Ray Gano believe Ezekiel is predicting a great multitude or host will emerge out of his prophetic "Dry Bones" vision.

Why did Christ Die for those Predestined to Hell?

Question & Comments to Bill: Dear Bill - Do we both agree that all of God's judgment and wrath fell upon Jesus at the Cross for all mankind? If God foreknew and predestinate whom would be conformed to the image of the Son, then why did God include all the non-believer's wrath and judgment upon Jesus if God predestinated their calling into hell? Wouldn't God's wrath and judgment pour out on all non-believer's that His Son had to endure be executed in Hell?

I have been praying to God about this for the last few days and was led to present the question to you. Why not just place upon Christ the wrath of those souls that would not be ashamed and end up before Christ at His judgment Seat. Why include all of mankind when many are called, but few are chosen?

God knows who is going to Hell. Why was Jesus subjected to those who will spend eternity in Hell's wrath of God? Why not only those that are chosen to be sons of God?

The Ezekiel 35-39 Mideast War Prophecies

Ezekiel warned in the end time’s Israel would come out of the Holocaust and face two apocalyptic wars. 2600 years later we realize these are epic battles fought against approximately 19 primarily Muslim dominated populations including Syrians, Hezbollah, Russians, Iranians, and Turks just to list a few. Many eschatologists believe these wars will be fought soon and sequentially.

This week on Prophecy Update Radio Bill Salus and the founder of Lion of Judah Ministry, Gary Fisher, take an in-depth look at Ezekiel 35-39. This interview picks up where Bill and Gary’s previous interview called “Ezekiel’s Birds Gather for the Gog of Magog Meal,” left off. The previous interview is one of the most listened to programs in the Prophecy Update Radio archives. This fascinating four-part interview is guaranteed to be one of the most important and relevant studies Christians can listen to in these last days.

Arguments Against a Muslim Antichrist

By Bill Salus

Troublesome times, filled with stage setting prophetic signs, have many concerned they live in the last generation. As such, many eschatologists field questions about the Antichrist whose reign of terror dominates the final generation.

Topping the list is the curiosity over his origin. Will he be a Jew, Gentile, Muslim, or perhaps a Supernatural being like the Nepilim in the ancient Days of Noah? (Read article now.)

Will Arab Protests Hasten Psalm 83 & Ezekiel 38?

By Bill Salus

Following closely behind the 2010 pullout of American boots on the ground in Iraq, the first quarter of 2011 experienced an unprecedented period of Arab Protests. Even today’s top eschatologists are asking who opened up Pandora’s Box in the Middle East. Like California wildfires, these Arab protests have spread out of control across the region.

Chronologically ordering the protests, which have often morphed into revolts, helps achieve a greater understanding of where Mideast events could be heading. Read article now
