Great Earthquakes are an End Time's Sign!

by Bill Salus

About 2000 years ago Jesus warned that just prior to his return the world would undergo a period of cataclysmic contractions that he likened to the birth pains of a woman.
In essence Christ declared that the last days would be characterized by powerful prophetic events that hit humanity with increased frequency and increased intensity, just like the birth contractions before a baby is born.
Earthquakes in various places are occuring at an alarming rate. Could this mean that Christ will return in this 21st Century?


Who seals the 144,000 Jews for Jesus?

by Bill Salus

Rapture Ready recently posted an excellent article entitled, The Rapture and the Timing of the Two Witnesses by Paul K. (click link to read entire article). I agree with most everything written in this article by the author. I think he did a spectacular job pinpointing the timing of the two witnesses of Revelation 11. However, I would take minor issue with his specific comment highlighted in red below.

"However, with the Pre-Trib Rapture happening, billions of people will suddenly have no one to tell them about Jesus. The Christians will all be gone. However, with the time of the Two Witnesses’ ministry beginning on Day 1 of the Trib, people will be hearing about Jesus despite the disappearance of Christians in the Rapture. I believe it is the ministry of the Two Witnesses that brings to faith the 144,000 male Jews of Revelation 7:1-8. These Jewish men finally believe in Jesus, and realize that the time is short, and while the Two Witnesses minister to Israel, the 144,000 spread out over all the Gentile nations to share Jesus Christ. Someone has compared it to 144,000 Billy Graham’s let loose on the world at once!"

This comment implies that the Rapture is the trigger point of the 7 year Tribulation period. It could correlate with that time frame; however, it is the confirmation of the false covenant crafted by the Antichrist that is commonly understood to be the trigger point of the Tribulation clock.

Furthermore we are told in Revelation 7 that an angel seems to participate in the gospel enlightenment of the 144,000 Jews for Jesus. (click link) to read my article, The Message of the 144,000 future Jews for Jesus

Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal (sphragis) (1) of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed (sphragizo) (2) the (144,000) servants of our God on their foreheads.” (Rev. 7:2-3)

The Greek words for seal and sealed, strongly suggest that this specific angel plays an active part in the sealing process of the 144,000 witnesses.

We are also told in Rev. 14:4 “These (144,000) were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.” If the Rev. 11 two witnesses come before the sealing of the 144,000 future Jews for Jesus, then they could be considered the firstfruits of the Post-Rapture period.

I suggest the possibility that the evangelical ministry of the 144,000 commences promptly after the Rapture, but prior to the commencement point of the 7 year Tribulation period.
(1) sphragis; a prim. word; a seal, a signet:—seal, seals.
(2) sphragizoĆ“; from sphragis; to seal:—put...seal on, seal, sealed,
set a seal on, set...seal to.


Is Psalm 83 a Great Tribulation event?

By Bill Salus

The Fruchtenbaum / Salus Dialogue

JUST POSTED PART TWO. Bill considers this a must here radio interview if your are interested in understanding end time's Bible prophecy.

Recently I had the opportunity to interview the highly regarded prophecy expert, Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum, (pictured here) for Prophecy Update Radio. This important two-part interview is now available for listening. We talked about:

1. The importance of the Jewish people and the nation of Israel in God’s prophetic plan.

2. How the unconditional Abrahamic Covenant still remains effectually intact.

3. The scriptures predicting the coming third Jewish Temple.

4. The timing of the Ezekiel 38 Russian – Iranian led invasion of Israel.

5. The only way scripture allows for Iran to wipe Israel off of the map.

These and many more important topics are discussed in this timely Prophecy Update Radio interview. Lastly, and of particular interest was our discussion centered upon the timing of Psalm 83. Many of you interested in the timing of this unfulfilled prophetic Psalm will find his comments fascinating. I encourage you to read the article I wrote first and then listen to the radio interview subsequently.

Who will be Worhiping at the Coming Temple?

By Bill Salus

Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, saying, “Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there. But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles.”
(Revelations 11:1-2; NKJV)

Many believe that the reference above to "those who worship there" alludes to Jews, Christians, and Muslims, all with their differing forms of worship (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam). Most commentators agree that these Revelation 11 passages allude to the future existence of a Third Jewish Temple and its compound.
However, in light of the Pre-Trib Rapture of the Christian Church and soon coming prophetic Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 Middle East wars, this seems hardly logical. What will really be going on at the time the Third Jewish Temple is constructed and operational, and who will be assembling there to worship? (Click here to read the entire article)
