RECLAIMING THE RAPTURE: Restoring the Doctrine of the Gathering on the Commonwealth of Israel
Another Fall rapture frenzy will carry prophecy watchers through what has become an annual roller-coaster ride of emotions. Can these life rending cycles of prophetic expectation be what Christ had in mind when He told His disciples to “watch?”
Authors Douglas Hamp and Chris Steinle have discovered a healthier view of the rapture based on extensive Bible prophecy and a literal interpretation of the Scriptures. It's time to rethink the timing and purpose of the rapture. The rapture was prophesied from Genesis to Revelation. Why have dozens of rapture prophecies been overlooked by mainstream theology? Explore the ancient texts and discover God's clear and consistent revelation of end time events.
End-times Bible prophecy is like a 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle partially done. Many godly people have come before us and have spent a great deal of effort establishing the borders of the puzzle. Parts of the faces and the landscape are taking form, yet without the box cover showing the finished product, no one really knows how it ought to look entirely assembled. The timing of the rapture is a puzzle-piece incorrectly placed. Many times, teachers will begin with the assumption that the timing of the rapture is fixed and non-negotiable. They then demand that the rest of the end times scenario fit that assumption.
