News sites and other media are continuing to “hype” up the coming rapture on the 22nd of May. CNN even went as far as travelling with believers of this theory whilst they travelled around trying to spread word.
As I mentioned in my previous post, there is clear evidence in the Bible that no-one knows the date or time the Rapture will occur. There are also several conditions that must be met prior to Rapture.
- Where is the rebuilt Temple ?
- If the temple hasn’t been rebuilt, how can it be desecrated by the Antichrist?
- Where is the Antichrist?
- The institution of One World Government, Currency, and Religion
- The battles against Israel by Russia and Iran
- the return of jews to Israel
This theory of this group seemingly ignores/discounts large portions of Scripture. In turn such predictions give non-Christians one more reason to discount the Bible. John Jeffres provides another example of this with the age of the earth:
For example, many secularists have dismissed the Bible because they assume that it teaches the world is only 6,000 years old. In reality, the Bible never makes such a claim about the Earth’s age. Instead, some well-intentioned Christians have misused the genealogies in the Bible to attempt to ascertain the date of creation.
