Given that we’re clearly living in the latter days, it’s of immediate relevance that we have a solid understanding of biblical end times prophecy so we’re as prepared as possible for what’s to come. The trajectory is clear for those of us who are paying attention.
We’re now living in a world of rapidly declining morals and increased debauchery, tyrannical governments and endless wars. Christian persecution around the world is on the rise and, in the West, Christians are being criminalized and called haters for declining to extend their services to same-sex “weddings”. Cryptocurrencies and microchip implants have made their debut and it’s only a matter of time before they become mainstream. All of this brings us ever closer to a one world government, a one world currency and a one world religion, just exactly as is prophesied in the Bible.
In order to truly understand end times prophecy, we must begin with a clear understanding that the faithful in Christ, not Jews, are God’s elect. Dispensationalism, which permeates much of apostate Christianity, teaches that Jews are the chosen people and that the existence of the modern state of Israel is fulfillment of Bible prophecy. This Zionist teaching is the foundation of the false doctrine of a pre-tribulation rapture, Satan’s way of ensuring a great many of those who call themselves Christians are entirely unprepared for tribulation and at risk of following the Antichrist. Truly saved Christians will not be deceived for they know and follow Christ’s voice (John 10:4) and “a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers” (John 10:5).
End times prophecy is woven throughout the Bible and it’s important to read and cross-reference all such chapters and verses. As a companion to the documentaries below, you can read the entire Book of Revelation here →
God’s Elect & End Times Prophecy
Whether you’re a new Christian or not, there are some excellent resources that lay out biblical proofs in answer to the question “who are God’s elect?” as well as on end times prophecy.
Israel & God’s elect
The physical state of Israel is not the same as spiritual Israel. Knowing this is key to understanding both end times prophecy and the Bible itself. The false dispensationalist teaching on modern Israel has infiltrated many churches with large numbers of Christians believing that they must “stand with Israel” in order to be blessed themselves. This is a twisting of God’s promise to Abraham:
And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. (Genesis 12:2-3)
However, any Christian who reads their Bible, thoroughly, will know that the promise was made to Abraham and his seed, not seeds or descendants. That seed is Christ.
Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. (Galatians 3:16)
And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. (Galatians 3:29)
Abraham’s seed is the body of believers who are justified by faith, just as Abraham was prior to circumcision.
And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also: And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised. (Romans 4:11-12)
There is a clear distinction in the Bible between spiritual Israel — those who have put their full faith and trust in Christ for their salvation — and the physical descendants of Israel:
For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. (Romans 9:6-8)
For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God. (Romans 2:28-29)
Thus the true Israel, those who will be marching to Zion, are not those who “say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.” (Revelation 2:9) “For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.” (Romans 2:28-29)
Marching to Zion
Marching to Zion, by filmmaker Paul Wittenberger and Pastor Steven L. Anderson, discusses spiritual Israel versus physical Israel. Due to Zionist infiltration of Christianity, many Christians have been led into apostasy and believe that the founding and existence of the State of Israel has God’s blessing.
The documentary traces the history of the Jewish people from the destruction of the temple in A.D. 70 to the founding of the State of Israel in 1948. Wittenberger and Anderson examine biblical evidence, history, DNA science and mathematics, and interview pastors and rabbis to answer the question: Who are God’s chosen people?
After the Tribulation
After the Tribulation, likewise by filmmaker Paul Wittenberger and Pastor Steven L. Anderson, is a must-watch documentary for anyone who is just discovering eschatology as well as those who have been taught the dispensationalist, pre-trib rapture. This false doctrine that has deceived many Christians, leaving them unprepared for tribulation, is very much a part of Satan’s overall plan to deceive the world and bring about a New World Order — a one world religion, a one world government, and a one world currency.
The documentary draws on the Bible to prove the timing of the rapture is at the halfway point of the seven years of Daniel’s 70th week, which clearly shows approximately three-and-a-half years of tribulation for everyone on earth, including Christians, a shorter period of Great Tribulation, and a gathering of the elect immediately after the tribulation but before God pours out his wrath on those who remain for the next three-and-a-half years.
The Book of Revelation: Series of 22 Sermons
The Book of Revelation is a series of 22 sermons preached by Pastor Steven L. Anderson. This in-depth Bible study looks at the biblical truths contained not only in the Book of Revelation itself but also throughout many other books of the Bible. In the process, the sermons expose and shred the false doctrine of the pre-tribulation rapture.
The series shows that the Bible paints a very clear picture of those events that will take place during the tribulation: warfare, famine, disease, natural disasters and persecution of Christians. This knowledge not only prepares us for what’s to come but also helps us to discern the “times and seasons”, that is, how close we might be to the beginning of tribulation, as well as where we’re at in the timeline once the tribulation has begun.
