Example text

The thief on the cross had time to call on the Lord Jesus. " We must be found "in Christ," in fellowship and harmony with God. Some writers give a false hope that if you received Jesus as your Savior twenty years ago, you have no fear of being left behind at the time of the rapture. They say that grace was then imparted and you are forever safe from falling. The Bible contains the word "if" hundreds of times. These "ifs" are not God's responsibility. They belong to us — the believers. Dr. McBirney, a well-known radio preacher and teacher, made a great statement.

First, those who are martyred for their witness of Jesus (Gentiles) and those who are killed because they have faith in God's Word. I believe that the second group will be those Jews who believe in the Old Testament and God's commandments. (Rev. no one else. I personally believe that there are millions of Jews who will be killed by the anti-Christ. They will not bow down to him, nor worship him. It seems that God has always honored, from the very beginning, those who will die rather than bow the knee to any god but Him.

Certainly no religious group or Bible-believing Jews will be recognized. It is at this time that this anti-Christ (the beast) will openly begin to blaspheme God, Jesus Christ, and the saints who have been raptured (Rev. 13:6) and who now dwell in Heaven. At first, and for three and a half years into the tribulation, there will be great peace and prosperity. (Read Dan. ) In Revelation 13:7 there is evidence that the anti-Christ will make war with the saints. "Saints" here refers to the Jewish people.
