  1. What kind of King builds an army, and then when it's time to fight makes his army dissappear into a…dinner? Feast? Death?

    There has been a few "raptures" in the Word of God, like Moses "rapturing" God's people from Egypt…but show me 1 of them that magically left the Earth? Without death anyway.

    When you understand what the Word "rapture" means…and then realize it's never once used as a word in the Bible.. you'll have a much easier time grasping what I mean.
    But hey, those of you who are too weak, or afraid, to stand strong in the face of the enemy, then I'm sure he has great things for you elsewhere.
    The God of Gideon prepares his army in a very unique, and powerful, Way.

  2. Read EZEKIEL 13:18-23, this is GOD speaking, now, do you believe a man who tells you your gonna fly away or do you believe thus saith the LORD? GOD states HE'S AGAINST YOUR FLYING TO SAVE YOUR SOULS! and the FALSE TEACHERS WHO TEACH YOU THESE LIES! PEOPLE PLEASE WAKE UP 2ND TIMOTHY 2:15- STUDY TO SHEW THY SELF APPROVED UNTO GOD, RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH. AMEN

  3. I would love to be rapture before any tribulation, but I don't think so. We are protected from God wrath yes, but God's wrath does not start until sometime after the middle of the debentures years. Read the book of Joel. The sin goes dark as Sackville and the moon turns to blood red, then the stash of God starts. In revelation this don't happen till chapter 8. I think the rapture then is Rev 7:9 which is after many of us are martyred. Part of Paul's "blessed hope" was to be deemed worthy to be martyred for Christ. I too have this blessed hope. Free supper would be nice, but I believe we will be given oppurnity to take up our Cross and follow Jesus in death. When?? During tribulation. We are not protected against Satan's percution. Sorry

  4. ANYONE seeing this…Those watching must realize we are at the Tribulation's doorstep. Please do your part to share this information with those about to be LEFT BEHIND after the very soon coming RAPTURE. Share this for your friends, family and whosoever can find it.

Time left is SHORT. Please do your part to help those Left Behind become the TRIBULATION SAINTS spoken of in Revelation.

  5. Those Rev. 20:4 martyred souls that refused the Mark of the Beast that will reign with Christ — if you had read on into verse 5 you would have told the audience that they were part of "The FIRST Resurrection" and would have no part in the 2nd death in verse 6. How can you preach honestly and not include verse 5 & 6.
    Reminds me of of when I heard a pre-trib Baptist Pastor teach on Matthew 24:30-31 and left out verse 29 where it starts out with "After the tribulation of those days". Do you pastors think your people don't read the Bible for themselves??? No, that is a serious question, do you?

  6. The day Jesus left the Earth, they watched Him rise up into the sky until they could not see Him because He went behind a cloud. The Angel then says that is how Jesus will come back. In the sky. From behind a cloud. We who remain will be caught up into the sky, into the cloud, in the twinkling of an eye, transformed. That is the same transformation that Jesus underwent after rising from the dead. Jesus said do not touch me for I have not yet risen. Later He appeared in a transformed body, but still had not gone up to be with His Father in Heaven. Like Jesus, we will be given new bodies. That does not mean that we have gone through the Judgment. It only means we have been given immortal bodies. We cannot proceed to Heaven because the Judgement has not yet happened and must only happen after the millennium because not all of the dead have risen. Those caught up into the cloud include not all Jews but only a sample, 144000 and not all Christians, but only the dead who died during Tribulation and also those who are yet alive. So, the old Testament believers and our Christian brothers and sisters who died between Jesus day and now, will not be caught away into the cloud. There is no Rapture of the Church because the church is all believers from all times. There is only the catching away of a portion of believers, moreover the "Church" began with John, upon this rock, not at Pentecost. The Day of Pentecost is not the beginning of the "Church", it was the coming of the one sent by Jesus, who has a ministry of empowering believers to witness for Jesus. Further, the "Church" is only a portion of the people of God who will pass through Tribulation. God has not done away with His promises to the Jews. Our job now, if we stop thinking about ourselves escaping, is to witness to the Jews in the power of the Holy Spirit. There will be a falling away because people like this Jimmy are teaching people not to bother being prepared, ready for the troubling times, and they will come to believe God has forsaken them. The man-of-sin will come. He will false witness for seven years. Half way through that time Tribulation will begin. For only 42 months. The Lord will send two witnesses against Israel in the same manner Moses and Aron witnessed against Pharaoh. After that they will be killed. After Jewish custom, they will be declared dead after three days. Then the "First Resurrection" shall occur. The two witnesses shall rise in that number, then we with them shall be caught up into the cloud. In the cloud to meet Jesus as He descends upon the Earth. Then in immortal bodies we shall reign with Him 1000 years going out from Jerusalem. Please do not listen to these TV preachers who want to sell you books. They profit from the word of God and are not a true witness.

  7. Jimmy Evans you are important. Thank you. The comfort within faith in Christ is beautiful. I may be on edge because you don’t know specifically when things are going to happen. But I know, in fact I feel that faith in Christ is everlasting love and triumph. Faith In Christ is the only way.

  8. I don't even know where to begin. There was so much in this video that was false, I am kind of speechless. Not one single scripture stated in this video has to do with a pre-tribulation rapture. You will not be raptured prior to the great tribulation. This is a dangerous teaching and will lead many to stumble when the Great Tribulation occurs. Be rooted in the word so that when those days come you will not fall away when those hard times come that have not come before. Keep your eyes on Jesus and endure to the end. Only then will you receive your reward.

  9. When Jesus comes the SECOND time He will appear to those who love Him. Hebr 9:28.
    This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.( Second time.Acts 1:11.)
    When Jesus comes the second time He will descent from Heaven and we will meet Him in the air.( 1Thes 4:16).
    When Jesus comes the second time we will be gathering together unto Him.(2 Thes 2:1).
    When Jesus comes the second time He will come in flaming fire and vengeance to those unbelievers who had fallen away from the truth and then Jesus will be glorified in his saints in that day.(2Thes 1:8,10).
    Before Jesus comes the second time a falling away from the truth must take place for the antichrist to be revealed.(2Thes 2:3)
    When Jesus comes the second time He will destroy the antichrist with the brightness of His coming and those who had fallen away from the truth..(2Thes 2:8,10).
    Nobody is going to disappear (raptured) before Jesus comes the second time.

  10. Life for christians as they know it will end, and their new life will begin. The route the man will take is rooted in the word of God, and that is going to be hard for some Christians to accept. Many will die on the inside. Remember, Jesus loves you.

  11. DEAR PEOPLE ,THE BEGINNING OF THE 7 YEARS OF TRIBULATIONS BEGIN 2021 -2027 NOW GREAT TRIBULATIONS 2028-2035 GOING BACK 2021 ,GOD HAS REVEALED TO ME IN VISION'S AND SCRIPTURES OF WHAT IS COMING SOON, THE FIRST VISION IS OF
    (( WAR )) THE ATTACKS ON THE UNITED STATES BY THREE NATIONS, RUSSIA, CHINA AND GERMANY REVELATION CHAPTER 9:18 BY THESE THREE WAS THE (( THIRD)) PART OF MEN KILLED BY THE FIRE AND BY THE SMOKE, THEY WILL ATTACK UP TO NEW YORK DOWN TO FLORIDA BY JET WAR PLANES AND BOMBER PLANES, THERE WILL BE A SUBMARINE COMING IN ON THE UNITED STATES RELEASING AN EMP OR NUKE OVER AMERICA. THE ATTACKS WILL STRIP THE UNITED STATES FROM IT'S SUPER POWERS
    RUSSIA HAS ALREADY TAPPED INTO THE PENTAGON, AND HAS SHARED SECRET IMFORMATION TO CHINA AND GERMANY, HAVE YOU NOT HEARD ,SCRIPTURES PSALM 120,DEUTERONOMY CHAPTER 28:49 REVELATION CHAPTER 16,CHAPTER 17AND CHAPTER 18
    SEPTEMBER IS A HIGH WATCH FOR THE ATTACKS, SEPTEMBER IS ALSO A HIGH WATCH FOR THE RAPTURE, SEPTEMBER IS FEAST OF TRUMPETS AT A FULL HARVEST MOON,TRUMPETS AND HARVEST
    THE OTHER WARNING VISION IS OF DARKNESS COMING FOR THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS AT A FULL MOON AS WELL. SCRIPTURES
    PSALM 119:147-148 PSALM 121 :6
    PSALM 121 IS LINKED TO YEAR 2021 AND MATTHEW CHAPTER 24:29 IS OF DARKNESS OCTOBER IS A HIGH WATCH FOR DARKNESS ALSO AT A FULL MOON AS WELL.
    RIGHT NOW IS A CRITICAL TIME IN ALL HUMAN LIFE THAT GOD HAS CREATED IN REPENTANCE,ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST BE UNDER THE BLOOD COVENANT WHILE THE DOOR OF OPPORTUNITY IS STILL OPEN, BUT CLOSING FAST AMOS:3:7 AMEN

  12. “There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”
    ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭4:4-6‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    My hope is that we can all agree that there is one rapture and there is one resurrection of the dead in Christ who go up with those who are still alive to meet Christ in the air on the LAST day
    When we read John chapter 6 Jesus says it four times

    The last day is on the last trumpet
    Last day is when he sends his angels to gather his elect Matthew chapter 24 verse 29 through 31
    I don’t care how many pretty preachers with smooth lips and twisted words tell you differently but I’m here to set the record straight they all have to be liars because Jesus cannot lie and he said he would raise us up on the last day and we know the last day is not before the great tribulation it would be impossible

    Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy,poor Jimmy
    I don’t expect you to ever provide a scripture like this:Matthew chapter 24:29-31
    The Saints are not appointed to God‘s wrath but does this mean they cannot be appointed to the great tribulation of Satan‘s wrath ? NO !
    You see you and I do believe that we are not appointed to God‘s wrath and to prove that God‘s wrath has not come all the way up through the fifth seal all you have to do is read the martyrs cry for vengeance proving that
    AFTER the great tribulation is the only rapture
    You believe that the white robes given to the martyrs in fifth seal will not be used for the wedding feast? (why would God prevent the martyrs from the wedding feast that you say happens before they are killed ?)
    What an effeminate man you are thinking unlike the Joshua and Caleb minded men (like the ones underneath the altar crying out to God to avenge the death proving that God‘s wrath has not come because when his wrath comes God finally avenges the ones who are putting the Saints through such persecution)
    These ARE martyrs who know their God and will do exploits during the Great tribulation just like our Blessed prophet Daniel spoke of in revelation chapter 11
    “And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.”
    ‭‭Daniel‬ ‭11:32‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    Jimmy if I’m wrong then Christ Jesus is going to say “what were you thinking didn’t you know that I was going to let you go to the secret Hollywood style rapture with Jimmy?
    And I’m going to say sorry to Him BECAUSE you said that after the great tribulation you will send your angels to gather your elect
    “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭24:29-31‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    And he said four times that on the last day you would raise us up in The book of John chapter 6
    “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the LAST day. No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the Last day.”
    ‭‭John‬ ‭6:40, 44, 54‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    “Jimmy you’ve had all your life to come up with one scripture in regard to the timing of the rapture according to the great tribulation to go along with your effeminate style Hollywood pre-tribulation convenient rapture and I didn’t give you one so why did you not prepare my sheep to be ready for the greatest battle on earth against the antichrist that makes war with the Saints in Revelation chapter 13 verse seven
    And why didn’t you see in revelations chapter 7 that the great multitude standing in front of the throne waving palm branches in victory came out of the great tribulation

    And how dare you say that the rapture is before the seven-year tribulation ?because second Thessalonians chapter 2 specifically says that you will see the antichrist before the rapture?
    Now let’s all pray for Jimmy he has a change of heart and goes back and quits twisting the scripture to say that God didn’t appoints the wrath therefore that means we will not see any of the great tribulation
    Was Stephen who was stoned to death reading the same Bible that you read Jimmy?
    How about all of the Christians who are torn apart in the Colosseum did they read the same Bible you read Jimmy
    How about all of the persecuted Christians throughout all the world for centuries who have been killed for their faith did they read the same Bible that said that they are not appointed to wrath so therefore their death is in vain?
    Go comfort your EFFEMINATE church with that Jimmy and may God have mercy on you on judgment day
    Jimmy says that the Resurrection day happens before the great tribulation

    If you speak the truth Jimmy this means the resurrection of the Saints out of the grave will not happen as Jesus declared in John chapter 6
    As I recall if you read this chapter you’ll see that Jesus said he will raise us up on the last day
    And I’m pretty sure the last day isn’t the day before the great tribulation begins because there are thousands more days to come
    Somebody’s lying Jimmy either you’re lying or the word of God is

  13. Yes, there are so many different perspectives on this. Aren't the Christians left the ones who DIDN'T accept Christ while they could? We don't really seem to know do we? " I do want and expect to be gone. We're trying to fill in the blanks. If those left are to be beheaded at least it should be quick.

  14. 1 Peter 4:12-16 ESV / 386 helpful votes

    Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name.

  15. Christians start reading your bible. You will suffer serious Tribulation and will be caught off guard in these times if you dont start reading now. Do not be deceived.

  16. Tribulation>great tribulation>Second coming/Rapture>then the wrath will follow. We as Christians are going through the Tribulation but not the wrath. The wrath and tribulation is two seperate events and not the same thing.

  17. Dear Pastor…I really pray you are right about the Rapture. Nobody should go through this horrible times of tribulation but I have questions, and confused of your teachings. If the rapture is a private event how come it says in Matthew 24:31 "He will send His angels with the GREAT SOUND of a trumpet and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other'…. The GREAT SOUND doesn't seems like a private event. The same as in 1Thessalonians 4:16-17 "For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a SHOUT, with the VOICE of an archangel, and with the TRUMPET of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be CAUGHT UP together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air"….it's gonna be pretty noisy, and loud, and looks very public to me. I think the Rapture is also a public event and not private. God Bless you

  18. Well just in case Jimmy’s wrong make sure you’re ready for the alternative would be to go through the great tribulation and then immediately after the great tribulation Jesus will come back and rapture the elect from the four corners of the Earth Matthew chapter 24 verse 29 through 31
    Because we see a great multitude no man could number in revelations chapter 7 that came out of great tribulation
    And we know that the antichrist makes war with the Saints Revelation chapter 13 verse seven
    And we know that you will see the antichrist before you see the rapture just like second Thessalonians chapter 2 distinctly positively undoubtably states clearly
    Remember Jesus said in this world you will have tribulation but be of good cheer for I have overcome the world
    All of the Christians in the Colosseum or murdered during Neroes day
    And I just have a lot of other scriptures that prove that Jesus Christ will be with us when we go through the great tribulation‘s to do exploits and win souls for his kingdom so remember not to believe in a good time preaching sermon design to fill the pews rather than tell you the hard truth I’m going through the great tribulation Jesus also said beware of those prophets Who tell you what do you want to hear
    For the prophets of old like Jeremiah and Isaiah and Ezekiel always had difficult things to tell God’s children how to prepare in times of trouble…
    Joshua and Caleb and the three Hebrew boys who went through the fire were protected by a holy God who knew how to save people out of trouble and so was Daniel and Noah

  19. You see there can’t be two raptures
    Amen that’s where Jimmy leads people astray

    Again I repeat there cannot be a rapture before the tribulation and after the tribulation

    And since we know for a fact there is a rapture after the great tribulation which is spoken of Matthew chapter 24 verse 29 through 31
    We are spoken of as the elect all over the New Testament
    Therefore I WARNED you brother and to not be deceived in this Hollywood fantasy rapture that Jimmy speaks of

    No matter how you slice it there’s only one rapture

    Test the spirits brothers there’s only one rapture so therefore there can’t be a rapture before the tribulation and after the tribulation look at the scripture that I just gave you before you make your final decision and DONT be deceived

  20. WARNING ⚠️
    False teachers always tell you the easy way
    The EZ could never be the narrow way!
    Well you can’t say that Jesus didn’t warn us that many false prophets would come and deceive many
    You can watch Jimmy from beginning to end and he never has anything hard to swallow
    Proving right there that he is a false prophet not sent from God
    The prophets of old would be telling you the difficult things to swallow because They could care less if you give them your money or not
    But these good time prosperity preachers teach an easy doctrine so that it’s easy for you to come to church and fill their pockets with the filthy lucre
    Trust God’s word
    After the great tribulation is the only rapture just as it says in Matthew chapter 24 verse 29 through 31 and we all know there can’t be two raptures!

  21. "Behold I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, AT THE LAST TRUMPET. For the trumpet will sound and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." 1 Corinthians 15:51:52
    "Now brethren concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together, (the Rapture) to Him, we ask you not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit of by word or by letter as if from us, as through the day of Christ had come. LET NO ONE, deceive you for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first and the man or sin is revealed the son of perdition." 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3.
    Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ do not be deceived by the false doctrine of the Pre-Tribe Rapture. For it is one single Day the Day of Christ when He will come in glory and gather together his elect from the corners of the Earth. (Mark 13:24-27) (Mathew 24:29-31)

  22. I've listened to two minutes and 15 seconds, what about chapter 3 Jesus States I will spare you the hour of Destruction is going to come across on the Earth, paraphrasing. What about chapter 11 Book of Revelations this is called the Judgment seat of Christ, you can also find it in Malachi 3:16 that's about the book of remembrance, in read 17 then go to 4, after God raised the two prophets who are dead for three and a half days prophets were taken up into Heaven by God. Go read it for yourself. For Jesus is coming back for his disciples, the people who Revere him, the people who honor him what about this. It's mid-trib bro, what about it?
