Jesus is Coming Soon - Are You Ready?

The end time signs, which Jesus gave, began at the time of the first World War! Dr. Meyer believed that some of the people who were born at the beginning of those end time signs will still be alive when Jesus comes back as recorded in Matthew 24: 30 - 31. (See also Rev. 19: 11.). For a second choice, the end time signs began with the people who were born in 1948 when Israel became a nation. (See Matthew 24: 32.). In any case, the Jews will be back in their land, waiting for their King, their Messiah. (Read Luke 1: 31 - 33, Zech. 12: 10, 14: 9, Rev. 1: 7.). However, the true King can't come until a false king comes, namely, the Antichrist. Then 7 years later the true King will come, which is Jesus. Truly we must be very close to the end of the Age. Jesus is coming soon! So I'm saying, the generation that sees those end-time signs begin (Matt. 24: 33 - 34, Luke 21: 28) will not all have died before all those things are fulfilled. That includes the signs of the Rapture, the Rapture itself, the tribulation period (the 70th week of Daniel), and the Revelation of Jesus Christ. (Read Rev. 1: 7, 19: 11.). Some will still be alive when the Second Coming (Rev. 19: 11) takes place. (See Matt. 24: 31, 25: 31 - 32.).

By the way, it does not make any sense to say that the signs, the beginning of sorrows, in Matthew 24: 4 - 7, 8 are pointing to Jesus' Second Advent, His Second Coming. For those signs are taking place now, in our present day, and the Rapture will happen before the Second Coming. During the tribulation period, men will experience the 7 seals and the 7 trumpets judgments. During those 30 days they will see the 7 vial judgments. So, why would those signs in Matthew 24: 4 - 7 take place 7 years or more prior to an event (the Revelation/Second Coming) if they are in connection with the Second Coming? Not only that, but Luke 21: 28 says, "...when these things (the signs) begin to come to pass, then look up...". When the Revelation takes place we (the New Testament saints, and the tribulation saints who died and entered Heaven in Rev. 7) will not be looking up into the sky as Jesus returns to earth. But we, instead, will be coming back from Heaven with Him. (See Zech. 14: 4 - 5, Rev. 19: 11.). If those saints are returning to earth they will be descending from the sky, not standing on the ground looking up.

Now, I want you to know that the Rapture of the Church (Rev. 4: 1, I Thes. 4: 13 - 18) will take place 7 years before the Revelation/Second Coming. Not only that, but those end-time signs (Matt. 24: 4 - 7, 8) will start before the Rapture can happen (Matt. 24: 32 - 33). Those signs, that are given in Matthew 24: 4 - 7, are happening in our present day. They have been taking place for some time. God is not limited to time as we are. It is just as if only two days have passed (Ps. 90: 2, 4, II Pet. 3: 8 - 9) since Jesus died on the cross, rose again from the dead, and ascended into Heaven, to be seated at the Father's right hand, until Jesus returns in the Rapture to call His Bride and to take them up into Heaven. Surely Jesus is coming soon! Are you ready?
