Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity. Christians must have discernment in all areas of life in this end time of deception, realizing also that American leadership of both political parties are leading us into the New World Order of the coming antichrist. Do not be conformed to this world. Rom. 12:2. Expose the deeds of darkness. Eph. 5:11. "He that is not zealous against error, is not likely to be zealous for truth." J.C.

7:03 PM - Dispelling Rapture Errors

This is a long read. While it clears up some commonly held errors by some Christians it also brings up some other questions.


Some time ago (I can't determine exactly when), Dr. Thomas Ice, a staunch proponent of the pre-tribulation rapture of the church, wrote a paper that I recommend to everyone interested in eschatology. I finally got around to reading it carefully this past Sunday morning. It is my misfortune I had not read it months ago! It contains a great deal of vital information for those interested in the timing of the rapture of the Church.

In his paper, Dr. Ice provides a sound analysis of prophetic writings that precede John N. Darby (1800-1882). In fact, some references originated almost 1700 years before Darby. Altogether, these writings support Ice's view (and mine) that the rapture of the Church takes place before and separate from a visible return of Jesus Christ with His saints to the Mount of Olives (as tradition holds and scripture asserts, see Zechariah 14:4; Acts 1:12). This view is, however, at the center of considerable controversy.

I've written this recap and analysis using Ice's paper as a framework to draw out several salient points I believe dissipate some of the heat in the competing views of the rapture.
