bible prophecy



It is estimated that 90% of churches in the United States do not teach Bible prophecy. Have you ever wondered why so many churches ignore preaching about the rapture and the second coming? Although prophecy is an important subject in the Bible, there are several reasons why churches are not creating talking points and teaching their congregations about end times.

An unnamed pastor was asked why he did not include Bible prophecy during his weekly sermons. His response was because there is so much disagreement on the subject. Understandably, the pastor refuses to preach about subjects that might cause disagreements or divisions among his congregation. He is correct; there is confusion surrounding doctrines about Bible prophecy. For example, what is the rapture and will it happen before or after the tribulation? These doctrines are difficult to teach and even harder to build a unified acceptance among church members.

An interesting article written by Pastor Tom Hughes of The 412 Church titled, "Five Reasons Pastors Don’t Teach Bible Prophecy" lists the following reasons why pastors are not preaching about Bible prophecy:

  1. They don't understand it
  2. They fear offending members of the church
  3. They sense it will scare people
  4. They fear people will stop giving
  5. They fear looking like fringe groups who take things to an extreme
These reasons are understandable, but do not excuse the fact that our Bible is a book that almost revolves around end time Bible prophecy. By not teaching about Bible prophecy, these pastors are not teaching God's word in it's fullest capacity. There is so much to learn about the end times and from my experience, Bible prophecy has only accelerated my relationship with Jesus Christ. During His time on Earth, Jesus himself taught the disciples about events which were to come and how to prepare. The New Testament is crammed with passages relating to Bible prophecy. In fact, the book of Revelation is entirely based on the events leading up to and after Jesus Christ returns for His church.

Revelation 1:3 even mentions a blessing for those who read about the end time prophecies within:

Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. Revelation 1:3
By learning about end time Bible prophecy, we can understand what God has in store for our lives and for the future. This world is in a bad state, and to be honest many have abandoned their faith because Bible prophecy is not being taught in more churches. Satan undoubtedly loves the idea that Bible prophecy is not being taught in more churches today. God's people should know more about the end times which requires pastors to step outside their comfort zones. The church deserves to know the truth about the prophecies that will pass before the day of the Lord's return.

The Iran sanctions have officially been cast. These are the most biting sanctions ever imposed, and in November they ratchet up to yet another level. Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States. I am asking for WORLD PEACE, nothing less!
Only Jesus Christ is going to bring true everlasting world peace, however, the stage is being setup for this to happen according to Biblical prophecy.

Hi everyone,

In the recent months, there has been speculation in the End Time Watchers community regarding the month of September 2015 on YouTube, Facebook and many other social media resources. Never in my 35 years as a Christian have I seen so many prophetic events occurring so close to each other. It's amazing, but I want to add that I don't believe that the rapture or the second coming of Jesus Christ will occur during the month of September. I don't know the day or the hour that our Lord will return, but I know that seasons and times are changing at in incredible rate. I do believe that many big things are going to occur and that these things will dramatically change the United States of America and the world forever. I have provided resources for each of the events in case you're wanting to study each topic in more detail. If you have any events that you would like added to the list, please feel free to create and account and leave a comment with the details.

Here's a schedule of events that will be occurring in the month of September 2015.

Thanks for reading,
Brandon

Hello Friends,

I'm excited to welcome you to Tribulation Today.

I created this website for discussing and learning about the end times and tribulations we are witnessing today. This is not a website about religion or the ways of the world. The mission is to learn more about Jesus Christ and seeking truth by studying Bible prophecy and matching what we learn with events that are happening around the world. The Bible clearly warns that in the end times there will be earthquakes, famine, persecution, rumors of war and nations will rise against other nations.

The signs are all around us, Jesus Christ is about to return! The Bible teaches that the day of the Lord will come as a "thief in the night". Let us read, learn and study the end times together so that day will not overtake us as a thief.

Please consider becoming a member of our online forum community. Membership is free, and the discussions are open minded, engaging and sometimes life changing. Your thoughts, ideas and theories are always welcome for discussion. You are welcome to signup and start posting in our Christian forums today.

I am excited to get to know every one of you and looking forward to sharing many discussions together in Christ.

Thanks for reading,
Brandon
