In this session we aim to equip writers, both new and experienced, with tools and techniques for using and choosing images in their work. We will focus on the use of online image banks, the range of resources available and the different ways images influence the way we write. Participants will take away:
That sounds great, but it overlooks the scriptures telling of other events that must happen first. Until those things happen the rapture cannot happen. Regardless of what our pastor or anyone else says about it, we must rely on the scriptures as the final authority.
Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. His wrath will be poured out in the earth, but not on His people.
That is really good news! All the unrepentant sinners in the world will mourn when they see the sign of the Son of Man in the sky Matthew In fact, He promised the world would hate us, persecute us, and even kill us.
At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another Matthew Millions of Christians around the world have endured great persecution and have even been killed for their faith.
American Christians have so far not had to endure much persecution, but Christians in other parts of the world have suffered horrible things and continue to endure these things today.
Just consider what believers today are enduring in places like Iraq, Syria, and China. Therefore, we cannot just toss out scriptures warning us about bad things coming in the last days.
We cannot just look for the rapture to deliver us from all trouble. Not only would that be contrary to scripture, but it could also destroy our faith when bad things happen and we find ourselves still here.
When that day comes, we will need strong faith to carry us through any trouble that comes our way. We will need faith that endures to the end. That kind of faith only comes from an accurate understanding of the scriptures. So now we can move on. Here are ten things that must happen before the rapture.
The Apostle John saw great trouble released by the breaking of each of the first five seals. Jesus saw the same events occurring in the same sequence Matthew Both John and Jesus saw the rise of the antichrist during this time of trouble.
Since there is only one antichrist, we can conclude they both saw the same events during the same time period.
John saw a rider on a white horse receives a crown after the first seal is broken. The white horse is a symbol of conquest, but also represents a counterfeit of the Messiah who promised to return riding on a white horse.
This false Messiah is the antichrist. After receiving his first crown he begins using his crown to gain more crowns Revelation 6: Jesus saw the antichrist entering the temple and standing in the holy place, which is what the prophet Daniel called the abomination that brings desolation Matthew This arrogant action marks the beginning of the end for the antichrist.
The cup of the wrath of God is full and about to be poured out. Both John and Jesus saw another event that only happens one time in all of history.
Here is what John saw released after the sixth seal is broken Revelation 6: There was a great earthquake. The sun became black. The moon became like blood. The stars of the sky fell to the earth like a fig tree shaken by the wind.
The sky is split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up. Every mountain and island were moved out of their places. The people of the earth hid themselves and sought to die because they were dreading the coming wrath of God. Now compare that to what Jesus saw happening immediately after the tribulation, after the birth pangs Matthew The sun will be darkened.
The moon will not give its light. The stars will fall from the sky.The Commonwealth Club of California is the nation's oldest and largest public affairs forum.
