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.

9:58 PM - The Second Coming

Those who mock the Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Church and say there is no singular, specific passage that points to the Rapture happening before the 70th Week, are in denial of one specific point.  That point being, that there is likewise no singular Old Testament passage that states Christ will come in two stages; first as the humble Servant, and then second as the reigning King.  They can’t do it, because there aren’t any.  There are passages that speak to His death (Psalm 22, Isaiah 53), and there are those which speak to His ruling and reigning. (Psalm 2, Isaiah 11)  The reason they can’t is because that is the way God designed our Scriptures.  He knew that if fallen and unregenerate man, who under the suppression and control of Satan, would not have allowed God’s plan of redemption to play out as it did.

By Pete Garcia

The final event in which Gods interjects directly into the affairs of fallen man, is what we know as the Second Coming. The reason we call it the Second Coming is that this will be the second time Christ physically returns to the earth. This is opposed to the Rapture of the Church, where we believers are physically caught up to meet Christ in the air and go back with Him to the Father's house for a period of time. No, when Christ comes at the Second Coming, there will be no mistaking it for He will return and the whole of creation will serve as a witness. The sky will split open, and the armies of heaven will follow Him, making the grandest procession a king had or will ever make.

The Second Coming is as different from the Rapture of the Church, as His First Coming was from His second. In the first, He came wrapped in human flesh, as a humble servant. In His second, He returns in His glorified form as the victorious King of kings. The first coming He allowed men to mock, beat, and crucify Him…but at His Second, He speaks a word and millions are slain. He masked His divinity at His first coming, so He could redeem men, as a man. He will not mask His divinity in His second coming....for every knee will bow at His Kingship. At His first, only a Star marked His place for a few shepherds. At His second, the world will see the sky's parting and be in terror. He is the rightful heir, and the world that remains in that time, will be awestruck at His coming and even those who are in hell will see His coming. (Rev. 1:7) The sky will part for Him and the armies of Heaven will follow.
