finished reading the book I purchased a while back, entitled “What in the world is going on” by Dr. David Jeremiah. I was thinking that I was going to make notes about what I was reading and post them for you all to read, but I guess I got too busy. I will hopefully post some thoughts about the book some time in the future, but for now let me say…Good book!
While some topics are covered very well, others aren’t. The biggest example that I can think of that isn’t covered very well is the topic of the Rapture. From what I can recall, Dr. Jeremiah doesn’t explain WHY he thinks that the Rapture will occur before the Great Tribulation but rather assumes that this is way it will happen…no room for any other possibility, without explaining how he got to that conclusion. As many of you know, my pastor is preaching from the book of Revelation, verse by verse, and has come to the conclusion that the Rapture will occur sometime during the Great Tribulation (after mid point, but before the Wrath of God). Both views keep to the knowledge that we don’t know EXACTLY when the Rapture will occur (unfortunately, the mid-trib and post-trib subscribers can’t claim this). So when will it occur? I don’t know, but I wish that both accounts would give a more solid explanation. I guess the search continues.
Other than this troubling topic, Dr. Jeremiah does help bring a realization that the end is nearly upon us. The signs are there…the pieces to the puzzle are out on the table, ready to be assembled…it’s just a matter of time. Are you ready?
