My Next Book: After the Rapture

Almost immediately after I published Biblical Evidence of a Pre-Tribulation Rapture, I began working on my next book, After the Rapture: What Happens On Earth and In Heaven After the Rapture. I am almost finished with the book. I only have a little bit of the last chapter left and the introduction—I always leave the intro until last. I am so excited to get this book published. I think it is my best writing.  It flowed off my pen more than the previous books, and without much rewriting or editing. Also, it is more controversial, and allows for more guesswork. In other words, I go beyond what the Scripture gives us. I start with the Scriptures and then I make a good, educated guess at how things will play out. I put my imagination to work.

Okay, here is a rundown of the book, chapter by chapter. I begin in just three or four pages, describing what it will be like just before the Rapture. Much of it is what is going on right now: false prophets, evil, wars, famine, and lawlessness.

I outlined the book in two parts, part one is On Earth After the Rapture, in ten chapters; and part Two is In Heaven After the Rapture, in just two chapters. I begin the first chapter by describing what I think will be the immediate effects of the Rapture. I go fast and furious through this chapter, first describing automobile and airplane accidents, but I also talk about people’s fears and panic and grief and rioting. We know all about rioting, but it will be much worse than what we are experiencing now.

In chapter two I will talk about the different theories that will emerge as to why so many people have disappeared—especially in the more Christian countries like Kenya and the United States (and a few others). Of course, this is all guesswork on my part; but some ideas have already been expressed in writing. New Agers have written much on this. Here I delve into some very bizarre things such as alien abductions and parallel dimensions.

In chapter tree I discuss the probable collapses; economic, institutional, government and moral.

In chapter four through eight I write on the rise of a new global government, a new global religion, and the Antichrist. Many, I am aware, think that these things will not happen until the Tribulation period, but I argue that they will begin to happen in the period between the Rapture and the Tribulation, which is why I think that that period could be as long as ten years. It will be a very tumultuous time, seeing so much evil; yet for some, a very exciting time seeing so many changes take place all under the banner of unity (a false unity)—a world unified government and a world unified religion.

In chapter nine I talk about the Ezekiel Invasion (from Ezekiel 38-39). Many place this war during the Tribulation, but I see it happening just before the Tribulation, and I give my reasons.

Chapter ten covers the very exciting topic of the third temple. I discuss here how all the articles are already made and ready for use. I discuss the building progress but also the obstacles of the progress.

Then in chapter eleven I begin part two on what transpires in heaven after the Rapture. Here I point out that we will first face the Bema, which is when all we who have been raptured will be judged according to our works, whether good or bad.

The last chapter is on the Marriage of the Lamb, our marriage to Christ. Many will disagree with me here, but I argue that our marriage to Christ will be patterned after the typical Jewish wedding. And the reason for their disagreement is because it will set forth a biblical proof of the Rapture.

Now in a typical Jewish wedding ritual, after the groom establishes the marriage covenant with the bride, he then returns to his father’s house to prepare a place for the bride, but promises that he will soon come again to get her and take her to be with him in his father’s house. 

The key biblical passage here is John 14:2-3, where Jesus tells His disciples, “I go and prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” This passage, as you can see, follows the pattern of the Jewish wedding, and it is unmistakably, also what happens at the Rapture of the church.

Well, like I said, I am not quite finished with the book, but I will be very soon. I anticipate it to be published maybe by Christmas, 2020.

How Will Christians Be Rewarded? Two Questions to Ponder

Studying Bible Prophecy

Will there be private ownership of land or co-ownership?  

The way I see it from Scripture is that we will share in God’s glory and will be his heirs and fellow heirs with Christ (Rom. 8:16-17). What does that mean? Well, as His bride, everything that He owns is ours also. So, we rule over everything with Him. Everything that is His is also ours—forever.

On the other hand, as part of our reward for our good deeds, each of us will be given responsibilities over certain parcels of land. In a sense we own it all with Him and will rule over it all; yet, in another sense we will have some individual ownership, or responsibilities.

How does one build up treasures in heaven now, and also after we die?

We can store up treasures in heaven now simply by doing good deeds; and those treasures will be…

How will things change for the Christian after the Millennium?

Studying Bible Prophecy

 

What we are mainly considering here is those of the church who have been rewarded at the bema judgment. As I have previously written about, our main reward in the Millennial kingdom will be the obtaining of responsibilities of service and rulership in God’s kingdom, in which we will reign and rule with Christ. Some will have great responsibilities, by which they will rule over many; and some will have few responsibilities, by which they will rule over a few.

Now the question before us is, how will our responsibilities of rulership change after the millennium, when we will enter the eternal state of the new heaven and the new earth?

First of all, it must be clear that the second we all are raptured, we will go into the eternal state—because, to have a raptured or resurrection body is being in the eternal state. And where is that?…

How Will We Be Rewarded At the Bema Judgment?

Studying Bible Prophecy

  I think the best reward we will get is to hear Jesus say to us in front of all, “Well done My good and faithful servant.” That alone will be enough. But He has more in store for us that will be a joy to us for eternity. Our reward for eternity will be ownership of land, rulership, and areas of responsibility.

By land ownership. According to Randy Alcorn, from his book, Heaven, we will be “pioneers and settlers on the New Earth.”3 The term “inherit the earth” is God’s promise to those who fear Him and wait on Him, and is a term that suggests land ownership on the New Earth (and, I think, also on the new millennial earth). But if you are not particularly excited about owning land, you could also think of it as being prosperous. And I doubt that you will…

How Our Works Will Be Judged at the Bema – 3 Points

Studying Bible Prophecy

 There are ample biblical references on how our works are judged. We can break it down into three different categories.

1. Our works will be judged according to our character and motives.

While we as humans most often judge others by their outward appearance and behavior, God always looks on the heart (1 Sam. 16:7). Thus, in the final judgment He will bring to light the hidden things, and disclose man’s deep motives (1 Cor. 4:5; 2 Cor. 5:11). He will see whether our hearts are humble or proud (1 Pt. 5:5-6). And He will see not so much the quantity of our works but the quality, and whether they were done for Him and His kingdom, or for our own selfish gain (Matt. 6:33).

2. Our works will be judged according to our attitude toward God.

On the whole, we will be judged by the way we…
