Biblical Prophecy And End Time

Believe it or not the world has not ended in 2012. A lot of doomsday prophets may have been gathering for the aliens to take them home but Christians should have had no fear at all about the date. This is because end times prophecy is a subject that the Bible clearly says you should not set a date for in respect to the end of the world. Christians shouldn't set a date at least.

But there are a lot of people who do try to set dates for the end of the world. The Bible clearly says in many verses that no one would know the hour of the end. Not to mention that the Bible also says the world will last forever. That may sound crazy to someone who has never done any real study on the book of Revelation. When you read it you will notice that God has reserved the world to be burned with fire. This however is not the end of the world. The world will be changed.

I should let you know that there are a few prophecies that the Bible does make mention of dates. The best example I can give is that of the tribulation which is supposed to last seven years. That is a time when there will be trouble for seven years with the last three and one half being the worst. There is no doubt that we will know when that time period is going to be on us. After the first three and a half years of the tribulation the Antichrist will make himself known without a doubt because he will set himself up in the temple as a god.

That will happen at the middle point of the tribulation. There are a lot of students who believe this to be an error in biblical prophecy though. People believe that simply because they do not understand what the Bible really says. Jesus said in the book of Matthew that immediately after the tribulation of those days that many things would happen and the stars will even fall from the sky.

What most people take that passage of scripture as saying is that the very second the tribulation ends Jesus would come. He said nothing of that nature though. There is a period of time in which Jesus was saying the powers of heaven will shake. This is a time in which the seven last trumpets sound.

There can be no doubt that the trumpets happen after the seven years. People will get tied up with this scripture and not know what to believe though. Your view on where these trumpets sound will change a lot in the way of what you may think you already know. The only way scripture can come about is if the seven last trumpets sound after the tribulation.

However many churches currently teach that the trumpets will blow during the last three and a half years of the tribulation. They place the rapture of the church before the tribulation as well. I personally believe in a post tribulation rapture in which there is a period of time after the tribulation which is not specified. If you ask me the problem of knowing the date would be solved if there was a period of time after the tribulation.

So if you want to really understand biblical end times prophecy you really need to look into the scripture word for word. No other prophecy book has ever been as accurate as the Bible.
