  1. Please read the whole of Matthew 24. Jesus tells us we will be taken after the tribulation.
    Matthew 24
    King James Version
    24 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

    2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

    3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

    4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

    5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

    6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

    7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

    8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

    9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

    10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

    11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

    12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

    13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

    14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

    15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

    16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

    17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:

    18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

    19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

    20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

    21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

    22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

    23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

    24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

    25 Behold, I have told you before.

    26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

    27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

    28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

    29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

    30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

    31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

    32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

    33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

    34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

    35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

    36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

    37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

    38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

    39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

    40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

    43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

    44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

    45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

    46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

    47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

    48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

    49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

    50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

    51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

  2. At11:16 in the video in the reference to Mathew 24, how could this be the second coming and not the Rapture before the tribulation? These verses in Mathew 24 that are referenced are just like Luke 17, which discussed the Rapture prior to the Tribulation. I am confused.

  3. 50 years ago on September 12 1972 I gave my life to Jesus, I accepted Jesus as my personal Saviour. I was 18 years old. I want to thank the Lord for his amazing grace, his unconditional love and his faithfulness into my life during all these years. As Dr. David Jeremiah said in one of his sermon: "In the past I have been saved from the penalty of sin. In the present I am being saved from the power of sin. In the future I will be saved from the presence of sin. " Amen ! We are living at the end of the end time. Jesus is coming to rapture the church anytime. We born again Christians are going to be taken with Jesus before the tribulation. Amen ! Come Jesus come !


  5. In matthew 24: 30 – 31 the lord returned to take his elects with his angel in the air.
    The elect or the Saint is Christian who kept the faith of Jesus Christ and keep The word of God, revelation 14: 12.
    because to keep the Sabbath of God is the sign or seal of God. Ezekiel 20 :19 – 20.

  6. – The Scriptures describe the condition of the world just before Christ's SECOND COMING. Of the men who by robbery and extortion are amassing great riches, it is written: “Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the laborers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.” James 5:3-6.

    But who reads the warnings given by the fast-fulfilling signs of the times? What impression is made upon worldlings? What change is seen in their attitude? No more than was seen in the attitude of the inhabitants of the Noachian world. Absorbed in worldly business and pleasure, the antediluvians “knew not until the Flood came, and took them all away.” Matthew 24:39. They had heaven-sent warnings, but they refused to listen. And today the world, utterly regardless of the warning voice of God, is hurrying on to eternal ruin.

    The world is stirred with the Spirit of War. The prophecy of the eleventh chapter of Daniel has nearly reached its complete fulfillment. Soon the scenes of trouble spoken of in the prophecies will take place.

    Not all in this world have taken sides with the enemy against God. Not all have become disloyal. There are a faithful few who are true to God; for John writes: “Here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” Revelation 14:12. Soon the battle will be waged fiercely between those who serve God and those who serve Him not. Soon everything that can be shaken will be shaken, that those things that cannot be shaken may remain.

    Satan is a diligent Bible student. He knows that his time is short, and he seeks at every point to counterwork the work of the Lord upon this earth. It is impossible to give any idea of the experience of the people of God who shall be alive upon the earth when celestial glory and a repetition of the persecutions of the past are blended. They will walk in the light proceeding from the throne of God. By means of the angels there will be constant communication between heaven and earth. And Satan, surrounded by evil angels, and claiming to be God, will work miracles of all kinds, to deceive, if possible, the very elect. God's people will not find their safety in working miracles, for Satan will counterfeit the miracles that will be wrought. God's tried and tested people will find their power in the sign spoken of in Exodus 31:12-18. They are to take their stand on the living word: “It is written.” This is the only foundation upon which they can stand securely. Those who have broken their covenant with God will in that day be without God and without hope.

    The worshipers of God will be especially distinguished by their regard for the fourth commandment, since this is the sign of God's creative power and the witness to His claim upon man's reverence and homage. The wicked will be distinguished by their efforts to tear down the Creator's memorial and to exalt the institution of Rome. In the issue of the conflict all Christendom will be divided into two great classes, those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus, and those who worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark. Although church and state will unite their power to compel all, “both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond,” to receive the mark of the beast, yet the people of God will not receive it. Revelation 13:16. The prophet of Patmos beholds “them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God,” and singing the song of Moses and the Lamb. Revelation 15:2.

    Fearful tests and trials await the people of God. The spirit of war is stirring the nations from one end of the earth to the other. But in the midst of the time of trouble that is coming,—a time of trouble such as has not been since there was a nation—God's chosen people will stand unmoved. Satan and his host cannot destroy them, for angels that excel in strength will protect them.

    God be with you brothers and sisters, read your bibles and pray for the Holy Spirit, A-men

  7. Pastor Evans. I most likely will never meet you in this period of time but I pray to converse with you at the marriage supper and for eternity. These lessons are so helpful its hard to not continue from one to another and taking notes and praying over all of them giving thanks to God and Jesus Christ. Asking the Holy Spirit to engrave these lesson in my heart,mind, and soul.

  8. Great video but Matthew 24: 36-44 isn’t rapture scripture, it is actually about the second coming of Jesus. Read the context of the scripture. It talks about his return, not meeting us in the clouds. The person left actually enters the millennium period, the person taken away goes to Hades. This is one of the most misinterpreted scriptures in the Bible relating to the second coming of Christ. The first scripture in the New Testament to mention the rapture is John 14: 1-3. Only the New Testament mentions the rapture of the church, which is why it has nothing to do with unbelieving Israel. Or, the Jewish Calendar like many pastors talk about.

  9. To those who DENY the Pre-TRIB RAPTURE; "good luck" to your "smooth-flowing, beds of roses journey" through the TRIBULATIONS which the Lord KING YAHSHUA HAMASHIACH Himself declared that the events that shall unfold during the -Yr Tribulation Period will be ONE like NOTHING else one has seen before the beginning of Creation! What does that mean?? Have you ever seen the movie called "PURGING"?? What if YOU and your loved ones are being HUNTED by those who have been commanded to SLAUGHTER you and all your loved one for not worshiping the ANTICHRIST day and night, everyday for the rest of the 7-Yr Tribulation Period!?? Have you prepared a bunker enough to keep your loved ones for the whole of the 7-Yr Trib Period complete with a 7-Yr supply of foodstuffs, and that you'll remain locked down inside your bunker for 7 Years unable to come out for a breathe! What if the electricity and water supply shall be CUT OFF to your home?? What do you do for lights at night and even during the day time as it would be dark inside the bunker 24/7?? What if you or your loved ones with small kids (toddlers) get sick and needing emergency treatments at clinics or government hospitals?? Will you be given the treatments that you need?? Heck, the moment you shall come out of your "hibernation", they'd arrest you immediately and most probably "put to death"?? Is this all that you can expect as worse case scenario during the 7-Year TRIBULATION??? YAHSHUA said…."WORSE THAN THAT…!!", right?? An where is the "COMFORT" to that, mate??? Are you SAVED now or ONLY after you have further PROVEN yourself by being MARTYRED by the enemy together with all your loved ones! But WHY hide in a bunker if you are expecting to DIE as MARTYRS and shall get the BEST place in Heaven and the New World???? Do you NOT see the STUPIDITY of it all??? You are already SAVED mate; what more do you expect from the Lord YAHSHUA??? Do you really desire to prove to Him that you deserve Heaven and the New World so you need yo go through the TRIBULATION, when you are already SAVED???!! To those who are "SHOW OFFS", let their wishes be granted by KING YAHSHUA but let us NOT follow these "crazy" individuals who really desire to test their courage by offering their necks to be slit or their heads bludgeoned to death by the soldiers of the ANTICHRIST! Perhaps, they also wish to taste what the HORRORS of the INQUISITION was like!! Well, LET THEM BE!! But, for us, we will SEE our KING and ELOHIM when He shall CALL us up to meet Him in the clouds above as per His promise in JOHN 10:3-4. So, do you still desire to go through the TRIBULATIONS that shall last for 7 years with UNIMAGINABLE degree of HORRORS and SUFFERINGS according to the Lord YAHSHUA??!! HalleluYAH!!

  10. JIMMY EVANS, is a Biblical Ignoramus , that Preaches the FALSE "Pre-Trib" RAPTURE, that those of Us Biblical Scholars, that KNOW what
    the Scriptures Declare about Eschatology, as well as History, that the "PRE-TRIB" RAPTURE Theory is a MASONIC HERESY, concocted by the FREEMASON John Nelson DARBY, that is NOT VALIDATED By the Scriptures !!
    Just a Cursory examination of 1.Thess.4:15-17, makes THREE Things Very CLEAR !!

    1.) That; …"We that are Alive, shall NOT 'Precede' those that are Asleep". ( verse 15 ) These "DEAD IN CHRIST" that shall "RISE FIRST". ( as per verse 16 )

    2.) That; …The "DEAD In CHRIST RISE FIRST", ( verse 16 ) which Must Include ALL The MARTYRS of the "Latter Half" of the TRIBULATION. as they have been Killed for their Faith in Christ, and as Such, are part of the "DEAD IN CHRIST", that "RISE FIRST" !!

    This Fact Also proves WHEN the RAPTURE Takes place, ….At the Very END of the Seven Year TRIBULATION, which Absolutely EXCLUDES Any Possibility for the "HERETICAL" Teaching of a "Pre-Trib" RAPTURE !!

    3.) That; …"We that are ALIVE And REMAIN, will be 'CAUGHT-UP' ( RAPTURED ) TOGETHER With THEM". ( these "DEAD In CHRIST, who RISE FIRST" ) That means; ….."At That SAME TIME", when these TRIBULATION MARTYRS Are Resurrected !!

    Which Rev.20:5 calls the "FIRST RESURRECTION", that is Separated from the SECOND RESURRECTION, by Exactly "One-Thousand Years".

    But JIMMY EVANS is too INDOCTRINATED, and CLOSE MINDED, to UNDERSTAND These Clear and Simple Words from the Scriptural passage of 1.Thess. 4:15-17, as is Also his Dumb'd Down Associates, that I have Contacted by Email to his "ministry" !!!
