Exposing the Left Behind Rapture Deception: Some may even regard as conspiratorial, the mainstream re-release of the Left Behind Movie with Actor Nicholas Cage portraying the main character as an attempt to further reinforce in the minds of all, this perception of biblical prophecy in order to condition the masses for the play about to begin. Because they see the world stage shaping to fulfill what they have been led to believe is sound Bible interpretation, a ""Left Behind Rapture" scenario, this false view of prophecy is reinforced in the mind, not only of its adherents, but also includes those who have been merely exposed to the specific media through Popular movies such as Left Behind. It seems that this great prophetic delusion has already overcome practically the entire American Evangelical and Christian World!
Most of the Evangelical and Christian world today believes that the Coming of Christ is imminent and that they will be Raptured away before all of the calamity of the entire Book of Revelation ensues during the very last seven or three and a half years of this era, a period of Great Tribulation unlike any other in the History of the World. As the world around us shapes to confirm that we are indeed in the time of the very end, many are beginning to look deeper into the Bible and more specifically the prophetic passages of Jesus, the epistles and the Revelation. This has caused many to lay down the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Doctrine because of the shaky ground on which it is founded. What I found out is that the error and deception goes much deeper than one would think upon entering this sojourn.
“The Last Prophecy” was the abridged version authorized by E. B. Elliot himself. The editors of this revised version humbly admit the primary credit to E. B. Elliot and those who went before us in this great work. With great trepidation we have sought to bring up to date the last several chapters hereof with the same method of which we hope Mr. Elliot would approve were he present. You will come away with a fresh and very compelling view of the Book of Revelation and an overview of the greater work from which the text is derived. "Horae Apocalypticae” (Hours with the Apocalypse) is doubtless the most elaborate work ever produced on the Apocalypse. Without an equal in exhaustive research in its field, it was occasioned by the futurist attack on the Historical School of interpretation. Begun in 1837, its 2,500 pages were buttressed by some 10,000 invaluable references to ancient and modern works.
This book explains in great detail and exceptional clarity the issues related to the Rapture of the Church, the government of the Antichrist, the "Great Tribulation," and all the apocalyptic judgments that God will pour out upon the world in the latter days. The Rapture of the Church will bring about the global collapse of the economic, political, and religious institutions around the world. Humanity will look for a leader who can put the world back together, offer them peace and security. So by popular acclamation, the world will host a false prince of peace the Bible calls the Antichrist. He will elate the masses by telling them what they want to hear. The Antichrist will push humanity to the deepest levels of degradation, vice, immorality, crime, war, violence, and rebellion against God. He will corrupt the social and moral order, and as a result, billions of people will die. He will plunge the world into spiritual darkness and lead humanity astray. We cannot begin to imagine the horror and the endless suffering humanity will experience through the chaos wrought by the Antichrist. The Bible says that the Antichrist's empire "shall devour the whole earth, trample it and break it in pieces" (Daniel 7:23). In reference to this dreadful period of human suffering, the Lord Jesus said, "For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall" (Matthew 24:21). This will be a period characterized by widespread wars, which will bring death to billions of people. During this period, 25 and 33 percent of the world population will die in two major wars. If these two conflicts were to take place in our time, 3.56 billion of the world population would die.
The Pretribulation Rapture Theory and Dispensationalism Revisited reviews and critiques a confusing array of popular theories that address the return of Jesus Christ and the church’s rapture. It proposes that a clarifying approach rests in letting Scripture interpret Scripture, which yields a simpler, more natural, and consistent explanation of the pretribulation rapture and dispensationalism. Drawing upon thousands of hours of Bible study, J. Mike Byrd presents an analysis and a related proposal that avoid both unthinking conformity to popular notions and oversimplification for the sake of palatability. The Pretribulation Rapture Theory and Dispensationalism Revisited addresses methods of interpretation, defines dispensationalism and the Dispensational Principle, examines the scriptural testimony surrounding the day of the Lord and the day of God’s wrath, surveys the issues regarding imminence, and discusses the rapture, the resurrection, and Christ’s second coming. If you wonder what Scripture clearly teaches about the this world’s demise, the end of human existence, and the onset of God’s sure and certain work to establish his reign, then The Pretribulation Rapture Theory and Dispensationalism Revisited should offer you the scripturally grounded review, analysis, and explanation you need to understand the Scripture’s teachings on these ultimate issues.

A lovely Caribbean island and its people awaken in author Robert Benson a sense of place and home. The islanders’ warmth and welcome prompt a new understanding of ideas of beauty, community and spiritual belonging. “We live in a world where such welcome and gentleness and civility are increasingly rare. Most of the conversation between strangers is terse and quick and far too often, it is cold and rude. It can even be that way, more often than we care to admit, among people who are not strangers. And such is the way of the world that we live in that we are almost stunned by welcome whenever it breaks out around us, and we are certainly drawn to the people and to the places where we find such welcome in abundance.”
