A friend sent me a link to an online message from about three months ago in the aftermath of the October 7, 2023 atrocity of Hamas terrorists attacking Israel. In this Prophecy Update I’ll go over what the pastor said, why he’s wrong despite how self-assured he was, and discuss why it’s so hard to find common ground in the Christian community when our eschatological, i.e. our end-times, beliefs vary so widely.

About a year and a half ago I spent some time thinking about the coming Antichrist. In so doing, I considered thoughts from various Bible prophecy teachers who wrote books on the subject. My Prophecy Update titled Antichrist Ruminations was the result of my survey.
From that effort, because my article was posted on Rapture Ready, that attracted the attention of Charles (Ken) Bassett who wrote the book: Can We Know? Subsequently, Ken changed the book’s title to: God Says Count the Number 666 – Why the Church Can Discover the Identity of the Antichrist, which can be found on Amazon by that name. He then wrote a subsequent book titled: Empire of the Antichrist – Why the Antichrist Will Come from Rome, which expands his thesis.
Those who read or listen to my preaching on this topic today are probably going to be the choir. As you might imagine, people gravitate to Bible teachers they tend to agree with. For instance, I’ll only listen to somebody spouting Replacement Theology nonsense if I’m researching that person; certainly not as a regular diet. …
A friend of mine, who is a scholar at heart and a new believer, asked me to help him understand the rationale for a pre-Tribulation Rapture. I thought I would take the occasion of his questions to outline my thinking in this regard in this forum.
We all pretty much know what is meant by someone being red-pilled. Way back in 1999 the movie The Matrix introduced us to that term. Keanu Reeves had to choose between the blue and red pills. Would he take the blue and remain unconsciously enslaved by a system that trapped humanity in its dystopian dreamworld? Or would he choose the red pill and wake up to the horrors of the reality in which humanity lived? In so doing, would he also join the fight of truth against the forces of falsehood and deception that sought to maintain total control of mankind?
Sometimes there’s so much going on that it’s difficult to keep up with all the prophetic events happening both in plain sight and behind the curtains of media censorship. To that end today’s Prophecy Update contains two separate and very necessary discussions.
