the post was long, it was very good and brought it home
to the core. I would like to highlight some of the
points for those who might have not read your post in
its’ entirety or at all:
became a believer, the most popular Christian book of
the day was The
Great Planet Earth, written by Hal Lindsey. It
stimulated a great deal of
in biblical prophecy and, in particular, in the
doctrine of the Rapture of
Prophecy and the Rapture were two theological concepts
that were foreign to
like me, who had been raised in the Roman Catholic
(I could have
written this !)
As I grew in my
understanding of the Scriptures, ..I began to get very excited
that Jesus would be coming back in our generation
Yet only a few years later
I noticed that some of my evangelical friends (and
in general) didn't share my excitement--or at least
the interest in it seemed to be on the wane.
Enthusiasm appeared to be fading into a blasé
attitude regarding the imminent return
of Jesus for His bride. Great expectation wilted to
a posture of
semi-confusion: "He could be returning prior to the
Great Tribulation," or "He may come back
for us midway through the Tribulation," or "perhaps
at the end of the Tribulation." To keep it from
becoming a debate issue among evangelicals, some
called themselves"pan-tribbers," meaning pre-trib,
mid-trib, post-trib--whatever panned out would be
fine with them.
Your post put much of my thoughts into
perspective. It is a blessing to be around
people who are looking for that Blessed Hope of Jesus
coming FOR us any day..any moment. Surely we ARE
in the Season ! GOD is Faithful to His Word!
May Jesus truly COME QUICKLY for us !
Blessings to all !
