Incoming email: "THE TWO REVEALINGS OF THE ANTICHRIST--PART C" by Ron Reese
Linked below are two very important messages, that are a MUST read, before you read Part C. Part B is one of the most annointed posts that I have ever written. Both messages are extremely important, as to where we stand today, in relation to end-times Bible Prophecy. THE HOUR IS VERY, VERY LATE!!!
http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/july2011/ronr712.htm-- The TWO Revealings of the Antichrist--Part A
http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/july2011/ronr713.htm-- The TWO Revealings of the Antichrist--Part B
Pre-Tribulation Bible Prophecy scholars have clung to 2nd Thessalonians 2:7--8, to support the view that the Rapture has to take place before the Antichrist is revealed. These verses tell us, "he who not letteth (restrains) will let (continue to restrain), until he be taken out of the way. And THEN shall that Wicked (One) be REVEALED. This seems to make it clear that the Rapture happens before the REVEALING of the Antichrist. Pleae read Part A and Part B, linked above, to see why this is the 2ND REVEALING of the Antichrist, at the mid-point of the Final 7 Years.
Revelation 13 discusses in great detail this 2nd Revealing of the Antichrist, at the 1st day of the 1260-day Great Tribulation. So, the Scriptures seem to be telling us that the Rapture will take place BEFORE the 2nd Revealing of the Antichrist. This means that we have every reason to expect the Rapture/Sudden Destruction to take place BEFORE APRIL 11, 2012, when Obama will begin his 1260-day reign as the one-world dictator, in the 2ND REVEALING OF THE ANTICHRIST, when he is Revealed to the whole world.
This chapter of 2nd Thess. 2 becomes controversial, as to the timing of the Rapture, in relation to the Revealing of the Antichrist, when one considers verse 3, which reads, "Let no man deceive you, by any means: for THAT DAY shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin (the Antichrist) be REVEALED, the son of perdition."
Verse 1 makes it clear what THAT DAY is. It says, "the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him." This means that the REVEALING of the Antichrist has to happen BEFORE THE RAPTURE. Verses 7 and 8 tell us that Rapture takes place BEFORE the REVEALING of the Antichrist. This is why this chapter has been so controversial over the years. Which is it? The Rapture first and then the Revealing of the Antichrist, or the Revealing of the Antichrist, and then the Rapture? This chapter had me stumped for so many years. I had read every conceivable explanation, but none of them satisfied me.
Like so many Biblical end-times fulfillments of Prophecy, it has taken progressive revelation for us to understand the CORRECT fulfillment. The only explanation of this Chapter that satisfies me, is that there are TWO REVEALINGS OF THE ANTICHRIST. Please do not bother to send me your interpretation of this chapter, because over the last 35 years, I have read them all. In Part A and Part B, I discussed this 2nd Revealing in great detail, especially in Revelation 13.
The purpose of this post is to discuss the FIRST REVEALING OF THE ANTICHRIST. The 2nd REVEALING gives us the exact Scriptural time, right to the day, of the 2nd Revealing of the Antichrist, which, according to Rev. 13, is the 1st day of the 1260-day reign of the Antichrist, the day of the recovering of the mortal head wound, the 1st day of the 1260-day Great Tribulation. In Part B, we wrote extensively, as to why this day will be April 11, 2012.
THE FIRST REVEALING OF THE ANTICHRIST IS ALSO GIVEN TO US IN SCRIPTURE, AND IT ALSO GIVES US THE PRECISE DAY. ACCORDING TO DANIEL 9:27, THAT DAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE FINAL 7 YEARS. SO, THERE ARE TWO REVEALINGS OF THE ANTICHRIST, ONE TO THE WORLD, IN REV. 13, AT THE MIDPOINT, OF THE FINAL 7 YEARS, AND THE OTHER REVEALING IN DAN. 9:27, AT THE START OF THE FINAL 7 YEARS, TO THE DISCERNING WATCHMEN.
I have known for over 30 years that the day the Antichrist fulfills Daniel 9:27, starts The Final 7 Years, or, as some would say, The Tribulation. This is a commonly-accepted viewpoint that most Bible Prophecy students believe is Scriptural. The common viewpoint is that the Rapture happens, then shortly after that, a 7-year peace treaty by the Antichrist, involving Israel and many nations, FULFILLING DANIEL 9:27, takes place. Most of you reading this today, probably have this viewpoint.
I held this viewpoint for many years, even preaching it dogmatically, because that is what all of the well-known Bible Prophecy teachers were teaching us. It SEEMED to make sense Biblically. In the time of the 1st Coming of Christ, it SEEMED to make sense Biblically to the Bible scholars of that day, that Jesus could not possibly be their long-awaited Messiah. Lacking spiritual discernment, they held to their misinterpretations of Scriptures, and they had Jesus crucified. That is how sure they were, that they were correct in their pre-conceived ideas that their Messiah HAD to be a political Saviour, who would save them from the evil repression of their Roman rulers.
But then there were the wise men of the East, who were reading the signs in the Heavens, and the 12 apostles, and other disciples, who were able to discern that Jesus WAS their long-awaited Messiah. The number of people who believed that Jesus was the Messiah were in the vast minority. However, the Holy Spirit REVEALED it to them. According to New Testament teaching, Christians in the last days, should be praying for discernment. Percentage-wise only a relative few have received REVELATION KNOWLEDGE that Obama is the Antichrist. Even fewer have received REVELATION KNOWLEDGE that the Final 7 Years began on Oct. 29, 2008.
I am convinced that if one PRAYERFULLY examines ALL of the evidence, presented on my website, and is willing to allow the Holy Spirit to deal with pre-conceived ideas and well-intentioned, but false, teachings, then the Lord will give that same progressive REVELATION KNOWLEDGE to any Christian, who is sincerely seeking the truth. Most have not, and most will not, be open to the leading of the Holy Spirit in these matters. Once again, the evidence for Barack Hussein Obama to be the Antichrist, and for the EXACT time frame of The Final 7 Years, is amazing, overwhelming, conclusive, and irrefutable. It is available on my website at:
Daniel 9:27, the key verse, which starts The Final 7 Years, says this, "And he shall confirm the covenant for one week (of seven years)..." Even after the Lord gave me REVELATION KNOWLEDGE and several supernatural confirmations, that Obama had just fulfilled this verse, I still had to do a word-by-word study, to rid myself of all of my pre-conceived ideas and false teachings on this verse. If Obama had indeed, just fulfilled this all-important verse, on Oct. 29, 2008, it HAD TO BE SCRIPTURAL.
Sure enough, there was nothing in Strong's concordance, as I closely examined every word, that even suggested a treaty of any kind, let alone a peace treaty, in this all-important verse. Israel is not even mentioned in this verse. It was a contrived theory, by well-intentioned Bible teachers, that SEEMED to make sense with other Scriptures. In almost 3 years, not one person has said that they also have done a word-by-word study of this verse, and have challenged me on it. Several have told me what they have been taught, or believed, about this being a 7-year peace treaty, involving Israel, but none have bothered to study the original Hebrew language, to support their THEORY.
There will be NO 7-YEAR PEACE TREATY WITH ISRAEL. It absolutely CANNOT happen, as there are, as of this writing, only a little over 4 years left to go before the literal 2nd Coming of Christ, on Feast of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015. There MAY be a peace treaty with Israel in the near future, but it CANNOT be 7 years in length.
Probably the most controversial part of Dan. 9:27 is the "HE" in this verse. I have read many, some of them recently, commentaries and dissertations about how the "HE" has to be Jesus. Let me say first, that this is the minority viewpoint. This does not make it wrong. However, the majority of Bible Prophecy scholars believe that the "HE, in Dan. 9:27, is referring to the Antichrist. This means that the vast majority of watchers are expecting THE CONFIRMING OF A COVENANT OF 7 YEARS WITH MANY, BY THE ANTICHRIST. I agree with this viewpoint, but do NOT believe that it is yet future. It happened almost 3 years ago.
I can see why some believe that this verse is talking about Jesus, and not the Antichrist. It is not my intention to try to rebut all of their arguments. It is obvious they have spent many hours, building their case, for this verse to be referring to Jesus, and not the Antichrist. I only have two points to make, in this post, to rebut those who believe this verse is not talking about the Antichrist.
1. It is correctly taught that when you are not sure of whom a pronoun (such as "HE") is speaking, you must refer to the most immediate person, BEFORE the pronoun is introduced. The most immediate person, before the controversial "HE" in verse 27, is found in verse 26, where it says, "and the people of the PRINCE THAT SHALL COME shall destroy the city and the sancturary."
The Antichrist is referred to, in other Scriptures, as a prince. It is commonly accepted, from Scripture, that the lineage of the Antichrist will be from the Old Roman Empire. It was the Romans who, in 70 A.D., destroyed the city of Jerusalem and the sanctuary, thereby fulfilling Dan. 9:26. This means that the most immediate person, before the "HE", in Dan. 9:27, is the Antichrist. This makes the Antichrist the one who fulfills in Dan. 9:27, "And HE (the Antichrist) shall confirm the covenant with many for one week."
Another point is that if you believe the "HE" is Jesus, and not the Antichrist, then you must believe that verse 27 is fulfilled BEFORE verse 26. Verse 26 was fulfilled in 70 A.D. If Jesus is the "HE" in verse 27, then the fulfillment of verse 26 would have been about 40 years EARLIER. Using the Antichrist, as the "HE" in verse 27 keeps the fulfillment of Dan. 9:26--27 in proper chronological order.
2. Barack Hussein Obama, on Oct. 29, 2008, CONFIRMED THE COVENANT WITH MANY FOR ONE WEEK, thereby fulfilling Dan. 9:27. He had been campaigning for several months. He chose this day of Oct. 29, 2008, ONE WEEK (possibly a DOUBLE fulfillment of the ONE WEEK, in Dan. 9:27) before the election, to strengthen, or summarize, his platform, his campaign promises, or his COVENANT WITH THE MANY, which were untold millions and millions of people over nationwide TV, and the internet. Yes, Obama, on this very day, CONFIRMED HIS COVENANT TO RADICALLY CHANGE THE UNITED STATES AND TO CHANGE THE WORLD!!!
On this very day, he did exactly what the Antichrist is supposed to do, according to the Bible, and, that is, he promised to RADICALLY CHANGE THE WORLD. Jesus fulfilled the four Spring Feasts on the year of His 1st Coming. He will fulfill all three Fall Feasts at His 2nd Coming. I have known for over 30 years that the Final 7 Years would end on a future Feast of Atonement, the perfect Fall Feast Day, for this fulfillment.
THE FULFILLMENT OF DAN. 9:27 ON OCT. 29, 2008, WAS GOD-ORDAINED, IN ABSOLUTE PERFECT PROPHETIC FULFILLMENT, AS IT WAS EXACTLY 7 PROPHETIC YEARS, OR 2520 DAYS, FROM FEAST OF ATONEMENT, SEPT. 23, 2015, THE VERY DAY THAT ALL OF THE EVIDENCE IS POINTING TOWARDS. You must read the 1st two posts on my website, which is linked above, for all of the extremely exciting, and conclusive details, involving Oct. 29, 2008, and Feast of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015.
This 2nd reason trumps, in my opinion, every single argument that seems to show that Jesus may be the "HE" in Dan. 9:27. This is why I cannot debate those who believe it is referring to Jesus, and not the Antichrist. Once again, progressive revelation, has revealed to us the truth. The evidence is overwhelming and conclusive. Obama, the Antichrist, has fulfilled Dan. 9:27. By so doing, THE 1ST REVEALING OF THE ANTICHRIST HAS TAKEN PLACE.
Has anyone ever heard of a peace treaty, among many countries, that is restricted to a time limit, such as 7 Years??? That is what we have been asked to swallow, by Bible Prophecy teachers. The one week, in Dan. 9:27, is to show us that this verse is referring to the 70th Week of Daniel, the Final 7 Years. EXACTLY 7 YEARS after the Antichrist confirms this covenant of Dan. 9:27, He will be destroyed at the Battle of Armageddon, the day Christ literally Returns triumphantly to this earth. It is not put there to give us, in advance, the length of a supposed peace treaty with Israel. This verse is given to us, as the key to end-times Bible Prophecy, to identify the Antichrist, and to identify the EXACT 7-year time frame for the 70th Week of Daniel.
In short, I believe the Lord has been showing us the following: Whoever confirms a covenant with millions and millions of people TO RADICALLY CHANGE THE WORLD, and is in a position to fulfill that covenant, and does it EXACTLY 2520 DAYS FROM A FUTURE FEAST OF ATONEMENT, will be the Antichrist. I also believe, even further, the Lord is telling us that he would CONFIRM WITH MANY SIGNS, INCLUDING ASTRONOMICAL SIGNS, AND NUMERICAL SIGNS, OF THE START DATE, THE MID-POINT DATE, AND THE ENDING DATE, OF THE FINAL 7 YEARS.
What an awesome God we serve! He has made it so very, very obvious for us to discover. Is it any wonder that Jesus said WE COULD KNOW WHEN HIS RETURN WAS NEAR, EVEN AT THE DOOR? I must confess, that I never dreamed that our Lord would reveal to us the EXACT 7-YEAR TIME FRAME, AND THEN CONFIRM IT WITH NUMEROUS, IRREFUTABLE SIGNS. But He has done exactly that! Thank you, Jesus for your revelation knowledge! Thank you for giving us progresive revelation! Thank you for the leading, and guiding, and direction, of your precious Holy Spirit. Thank you for so many confirmations. Thank you for making YOUR timetable for the Final 7 Years so obvious to us.
I pray right now that the POWER of your mighty Holy Spirit would reveal, and illuminate many that are reading this post, and show them for the very first time, the truth about Obama and The Final 7 Years. Beyond any shadow of doubt, THE 1ST REVEALING OF THE ANTICHRIST HAS TAKEN PLACE. HIS NAME IS BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. THE STARTING DATE OF HIS 1260-DAY REIGN, WILL BE APRIL 11, 2012.
Whatever would hinder people from receiving this REVELATION KNOWLEDGE, we rebuke in the mighty name of Jesus. We realize that Satan does not want this knowledge widespread. He does not want the Truth to be REVEALED, as it will be a hinderance to his plan. Satan, and Obama, are the Great Deceivers, who are soon to be made One. May the awesome power of your Holy Spirit now penetrate the hearts of believers everywhere, that the Truth may be made known to them!
In my next post, I will produce for you ONCE AGAIN, the final nail in the coffin, for Barack Hussein Obama to definitely be the Antichrist, and for Oct. 29, 2008, to be the first day of the Final 7 Years. This evidence is amazing and conclusive.

I think the Pope will be the first beast of Rev 13, but that is not what I am concerned about now. It is the correct interpretation of 2 Thess 2:1-4.

OK! I won't hit Send, but I will write it and post it on my Pro and Cons. I want to be absolutely sure that I understand this passage correctly, because verse 3 says, "Let no man deceive you by any means".
There are two great days, the DAY OF CHRIST and the DAY OF THE LORD, and two Raptures, the FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE and the LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE.
The FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE will be on the DAY OF CHRIST. The LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE will be on the DAY OF THE LORD.
If we go by the KJV, we are likely to be confused, because it has two translation errors in 2Th 2:1-4.
2Th 2:1-4 (KJV) says, "Now we beseech you, BRETHREN (i.e., believers), by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by OUR GATHERING TOGETHER UNTO HIM (i.e., at the First-Trump Rapture), 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the DAY OF CHRIST (i.e., it should be DAY OF THE LORD, the day of the Last-Trump Rapture) is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day (i.e., DAY OF THE LORD, day of the Last-Trump Rapture) shall not come, except there come a falling away (i.e., it should be translated DEPARTURE, i.e., the First-Trump Rapture) FIRST, and that man of sin (i.e., the False Prophet) be revealed (i.e., SECOND), the son of perdition (i.e., the second son of perdition, Judas Iscariot was the first); 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God (i.e., THIRD, Mid-Trib), shewing himself that he is God".
THE GENEVA BIBLE SAYS
(2Th 2:1-4) "Nowe we beseech you, brethren, by the comming of our Lord Iesus Christ, and by our assembling vnto him, 2 That ye be not suddenly mooued from your minde, nor troubled neither by spirit, nor by worde, nor by letter, as it were from vs, as though the DAY OF CHRIST (i.e., it should be DAY OF THE LORD) were at hand. 3 Let no man deceiue you by any meanes: for that day shall not come, except there come A DEPARTING FIRST, and that that man of sinne be disclosed, euen the sonne of perdition, 4 Which is an aduersarie, and exalteth him selfe against all that is called God, or that is worshipped: so that he doeth sit as God in the Temple of God, shewing him selfe that he is God."
The reason the Geneva Bible doesn't have DAY OF THE LORD instead of DAY OF CHRIST is simple. Three older manuscripts were found AFTER it was translated. They said day of the Lord.
The older MSS: the Sinaitic Codex (331 AD), the Alexandrian Codex (1078), and the Vatican Codex (1475 or 1481).
"These three manuscripts undoubtedly stand at the head of all the ancient copies of the New Testament, and it is by their standard that both the early editions of the Greek text and the modern versions are to be compared and CORRECTED." (See Tischendorf's New Testament Introduction).
"According to Tischendorf, Codex Sinaiticus was one of the fifty copies of the Bible commissioned from Eusebius by Roman Emperor Constantine after his conversion to Christianity (De vita Constantini, IV, 37)." (Wikipedia)
I Thess 2:3,4 in the Tyndale Bible (1525/26) says,"Let no man deceave you by eny meanes for THE LORDE COMMETH NOT EXCEPTE THER COME A DEPARTYNGE FIRST and that that synfull man be opened ye sonne of perdicion 4 which is an adversarie and is exalted above all that is called god or that is worshipped: so that he shall sitt as God in temple of god and shew him silfe as god."
Seven early Bibles have DEPARTING FIRST in 2 Thess. 2:3. Therefore, we are on solid ground if we accept it.
1. Wycliffe Bible (1330) has "departynge first"
2. Tyndale Bible (1525/26) has "departynge first"
3. Coverdale Bible 1535) has "departynge first"
4. Crammer Bible (1539) has "departynge first"
5. Geneva Bible (1560) has "departing first"
6. Breeches Bible (1583) has "departing first"
It is listed separately and dated differently. However, Breeches Bible seems to be a book-collector's term for the earlier Geneva Bible
7. Beza Bible (1583) has "departing first"
The KJV translation of 1611 was the first to make the 2 errors in 2 Thess. 2:3,4. Several modern translations followed in the KJV footsteps, but the World English Bible corrected the second error.
2 Thess. 2:3,4 (WEB) says, "Now, brothers, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our gathering together to him, we ask you 2 not to be quickly shaken in your mind, nor yet be troubled, either by spirit, or by word, or by letter as from us, saying that the day of Christ (should be day of the Lord) had come. 3 Let no one deceive you in any way. For it will not be, unless THE DEPARTURE COMES FIRST, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 he who opposes and exalts himself against all that is called God or that is worshiped; so that he sits as God in the temple of God, setting himself up as God."
THE SEQUENCE OF EVENTS
1. The First-Trump Rapture of I Thess 4:16,17 on the Day of Christ
2. The revealing of the False Prophet Mid-Trib
3. The Last-Trump Rapture on the great and terrible Day of the Lord, the last day of the Great Tribulation, the Day of God's Wrath.
2Th 2:2-4 (Darby) says, "that ye be not soon shaken in mind, nor troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter, as if it were by us, as that the DAY OF THE LORD (i.e., day of the Last-Trump Rapture) is present. 3 Let not any one deceive you in any manner, because it will not be unless the apostasy (should be DEPARTURE, i.e., the First-Trump Rapture) have FIRST COME, and the man of sin have been revealed (i.e., Mid-Trib), the son of perdition; 4 who opposes and exalts himself on high against all called God, or object of veneration; so that he himself sits down in the temple of God (i.e., Mid-Trib), shewing himself that he is God."
DAY OF CHRIST (KJV)
1Co_1:8 says, "who shall also confirm you (i.e., believers) to the end, unimpeachable in the DAY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST."
1Co_5:5 says, "To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the DAY OF THE LORD JESUS."
2Co_1:14 says, "As also ye have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as ye also are ours in the DAY OF THE LORD JESUS."
Php_1:6 says, "having confidence of this very thing, that he who has begun in you (i.e., believers) a good work will complete it unto JESUS CHRIST'S DAY".
Php_1:10 says, "that ye may judge of and approve the things that are more excellent, in order that ye (i.e., believers) may be pure and without offence for CHRIST'S DAY".
Php_2:16 says, "holding forth the word of life, so as to be a boast for me (i.e., Paul) in CHRIST'S DAY, that I have not run in vain nor laboured in vain."
DAY OF THE LORD (KJV)
Isa_2:12 says, "For the DAY OF THE LORD OF HOSTS shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low".
Isa_13:6 says, "Howl ye; for the DAY OF THE LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty."
Isa_13:9 says, "Behold, the DAY OF THE LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it."
Isa_34:8 says, "For it is the DAY OF THE LORD'S VENGEANCE, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion."
Jer_46:10 says, "For this is the DAY OF THE LORD GOD OF HOSTS, a day of vengeance, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and the sword shall devour, and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their blood: for the Lord GOD of hosts hath a sacrifice in the north country by the river Euphrates."
Lam_2:22 says, "Thou hast called as in a solemn day my terrors round about, so that in the DAY OF THE LORD'S ANGER none escaped nor remained: those that I have swaddled and brought up hath mine enemy consumed."
Eze_13:5 says, "Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the DAY OF THE LORD."
Eze_30:3 says, "For the day is near, even the DAY OF THE LORD is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen."
Joe_1:15 says, "Alas for the day! for the DAY OF THE LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come."
Joe_2:1 says, "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the DAY OF THE LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand"
Joe_2:11 says, "And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the DAY OF THE LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?"
Joe_2:31 says, "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the GREAT AND THE TERRIBLE DAY OF THE LORD come."
Joe_3:14 says, "Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the DAY OF THE LORD is near in the valley of decision."'
Amo_5:18 says, "Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the DAY OF THE LORD is darkness, and not light."
Amo_5:20 says, "Shall not the DAY OF THE LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?"
Oba_1:15 says, "For the DAY OF THE LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head."
Zep_1:7 says, "Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD: for the DAY OF THE LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests."
Zep_1:14 says, "The great DAY OF THE LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly."
Zep_2:2 says, "Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the DAY OF THE LORD'S ANGER come upon you."
Zep_2:3 says, "Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in THE DAY OF THE LORD'S ANGER."
Zec_14:1 says, "Behold, the DAY OF THE LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee."
Mal_4:5 says, "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful DAY OF THE LORD".
Act_2:20 says, "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable DAY OF THE LORD come".
1Th_5:2 says, "For yourselves know perfectly that THE DAY OF THE LORD so cometh as a thief in the night."
2Pe_3:10 says, "But the DAY OF THE LORD will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up."
To me, the First-Trump Rapture will come on the Day of Christ, and the Last-Trump Rapture will come on the Day of the Lord.
I agree with Ron that the hour is very late. I'm hoping the first Rapture will be on the Feast of Trumpets.
