We will sing a new song

The Church will be raptured before the Tribulation begins.

By Craig C. White

The elders of the Church are in heaven before the scroll of God’s judgment is opened. That means that the rest of the Church is with them!

Revelation 5:8-9 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

People from every tongue and nation are in heaven before Jesus opens the seals of the scroll that begins the Tribulation (Rev 5:9). That means that the Church is resurrected and raptured before the Tribulation begins!

Daniel 7 – The first 3 beasts outlive the 4th!

Daniel 7 – The first 3 beasts outlive the 4th!

The 4 beasts of Daniel 7 exist during the end times.

By Craig C. White

There are several reasons why I think that the beasts in Daniel chapter 7 represent end time kingdoms. One of the most glaring arguments is found in Dan 7:12.

Dan 7:12 As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.

The first three beasts, that is: the lion with eagle’s wings, the bear, and the leopard lives were prolonged for a season and time. A season and time is an idiom meaning approximately one year and three months. The first three beasts survive for one year and three months after the fourth beast is destroyed. This verse cannot apply to ancient world empires as most teach. The ancient world empires did not all exist at the same time. Each world empire defeated the previous world empire. The rest of the beasts, that is: the lion with eagle’s wings, the bear, and the leopard outlive the fourth beast or kingdom. The fourth beast is the next world empire. It exists during the end times. It is in power just before Jesus returns in fury to judge the nations that have gathered against Israel. Therefore the first three beasts also exist during the end times. The first three beasts in Daniel’s prophecy exist before, during, and after the Tribulation period. The fourth beast is destroyed at Jesus’ coming.

The four beasts in Daniel 7 are not ancient world empires. The four beasts are kingdoms that exist before Jesus’ second coming! The first three beasts (or Unions) combine together to form the next world empire. They are all recognizable now! The European Union, The new Russian Union (Yes there is already a new Russian Union), and a coming Middle East Islamic Union will combine to form the next world empire. Don’t wait around to watch the next world empire form because that will probably happen during the seven year long Tribulation period. If you are still around to see the formation of the next world empire then that means that you are in BIG trouble! However we all can see the Russian Union growing today and a new Islamic Union (or leopard) spearheaded by TURKEY on the horizon!

Romans 13:11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

Life after the Tribulation

Life after the Tribulation

One hundred and done

Isaiah 65:20

By Craig C. White

I shared this passage about life after the Tribulation period with a class of about 40 well-read Bible students. Nobody had heard of it. Naturally they thought I was nuts. Don’t worry, I am used to it.

In life after the 7 year Tribulation period Jesus Christ will rule on earth in Jerusalem. Individuals will have one hundred years to trust in Jesus for remission of sin. If they don’t submit to God by age one hundred they are doomed to perdition (hell).

Isaiah 65:20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.

This passage is contrasting the difference in day to day life between Tribulation period, and post Tribulation Israel. OK folks, here is something that is quite different. Literally; There shall no longer be accomplished there at that time a baby of a few days old (or a baby will not die as an infant), nor an old man who has not fulfilled his own days (an old man will not die before his entire natural life span is complete). During the Tribulation period many babies and old men will be killed in Israel. It will be different in the days following the Tribulation. Literally; the young (pre-adolescent) child shall die when he is one hundred years old. Wow, this seems to be saying that it will take over one hundred years for a child to reach adolescence. Perhaps this was the way of life after Eden? If we take a more figurative view (although I don’t see any reason to do so) perhaps this passage is saying that a one hundred year life span will be considered very short. Let me state the obvious. Children will be born during Christ’s reign on earth. Literally; but the person who misses the mark when they reach one hundred years of age shall be brought into contempt. If a person doesn’t honor God by the time they reach one hundred years old they will be judged by being sent to the lake of fire.

I think that Isaiah is describing the youthful eternal life that believers in Jesus Christ will enjoy after his second coming. Isaiah also describes the terrible fate of those who rebel against God over their long lifetime. Isaiah 65:20 specifically describes the populous in Jerusalem.

By the way, I am still waiting and praying for some dear people that I know who are approaching the age of one hundred to turn to God.

Daniel 7:6 leopard map

Daniel 7:6

By Craig C. White

Daniel describes the end time formation of an Islamic Union. My Map below shows the four nations that will first form this Union. My map also shows the four other nations that are likely to become secondary members. This Islamic Union will join the European Union plus the new Russian Union to form the next World Empire.

Daniel 7:6 leopard mapDan 7:6 After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.

I wrote my commentary titled “The Leopard is Upon Us!” way back in 2011. Since then the identity of the four primary nations of the leopard in Daniel 7:6 has become more apparent. In November 2014 then Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan announced his plans to form a new Islamic Union. I think that the first four nations to be included in this Union will be Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran. These are the same four nations that Revelation 9:13-16 identifies as being located along the Euphrates River. During the first half of the seven year Tribulation period these four nations along with four other secondary nations (or perhaps four Terrorist organizations) will conquer most of the Middle East, Northern Africa, and Central Asia. Please read my commentary titled World War III.

Rev 9:13-16 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. 15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. 16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.

Now President Erdogan has made his intentions of forming a Turkish ruled revived Ottoman Empire with him as it’s Sultan very clear! The first nation to fall to Erdogan and to the Turkish Army will be Syria. After Damascus is destroyed and Syria is conquered then Erdogan will install Muslim Brotherhood leadership there! Then the leopard (or Islamic Union) will be formed.

ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is still in Mosul

ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is still in Mosul

By Craig C. White

If you will remember Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi proclaimed himself as the head of a new Islamic Caliphate, also known as the Islamic State, or ISIS. It was reported that al-Baghdadi may have been killed in a air raid on Raqqa, Syria in June 2016. But the report was never confirmed. Iraqi intelligence is now reporting that al-Baghdadi is still present inside of the northern Iraq city of Mosul. Mosul is the hometown and headquarters of ISIS. As you know, the battle to remove ISIS from Mosul has been underway for the past two months. I think that the Prophet Nahum identifies al-Baghdadi in the following verse.

Nahum 1:11 There is one come out of thee, that imagineth evil against the LORD, a wicked counsellor.

The Old Testament book of Nahum is all about the flooding and destruction of the ancient Assyrian capital city of Nineveh. Today Mosul is built around the ruins of Nineveh. I think that Nahum also predicts the flooding of ISIS in Mosul.

Nineveh was destroyed by a flood along with three invading armies in 612 BC. When the walls of Nineveh collapsed the Assyrian King Sinsharishkun committed suicide inside of the city. Sinsharishkun is certainly represented in Nahum 1:11. ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi may also be represented.
