Prophecy End Times – Rapture could it happen today
Welcome to today’s RIOT Podcast, a Christian podcast. We are so glad you joined us today! In this episode of RIOT, Pete, Barry and Bob go deeper into Prophecy and End Times as they go through a book called “End Times in Chronological Order” by Ron Rhodes. Today they talk about the different views of the Rapture. There are views on pre-tribulation, mid-tribulation, post-tribulation, as well as all Millennial. Pre-Tribulation is the point of view we are taking when it comes to the Rapture and we believe that the church will be spared.
There are 6 Reason why we believe in Pre Tribulation
1. Tribulation period is for Israel and not the Church. The prophecy in Dan 9 is talking about the end times and the 70 week of Tribulation is referencing Israel. Romans 11:5 it talks about the Fullness of the gentiles or the church must be completed before God comes back again.
2. In Rev 3:10 Jesus says he will keep the church from the hour of testing, or the wrath of God
3. In Rev 1-3 it talks about the church, in rev 4 onwards the church is not mention until rev 19 and we come back again with Christ.
4. Bible tells us in Colossians 3 that the church is to look for the coming of Jesus and not the antichrist coming. We are to beware of false prophets but look for Jesus coming
5. In Rev 4 it says Meta tauta, after these things. After what things well Rev 1-3 is talking about the church so after these things is after the church has been raptured. We get taken 2 chapters before the tribulation starts
6. In Rev 19 We the saints come back with him to the earth, so that to me says we’re with him already.
● 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. 15 For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord,4 that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.
● John 14:1-3 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God;1 believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
● 1 Corinthians 15:51-54 51 Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. 53 For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. 54 When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written:
● Revelation 3:10 for example Jesus promises the church in Philadelphia, I will keep you from the hours of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth.
● Romans 5:9 Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.
The Power of Holiness – RIOT Podcast – Christian Discipleship Podcast
The Power of Holiness is what RIOT Podcast, a Christian Discipleship Podcast will be discussing on today’s show. What is Holiness? I think A.W Tozer said it best in his book “The Knowledge of the Holy”. He said, “Holy is the way God is. To be holy He does not conform to a standard. He is that standard. He is absolutely holy with an infinite, incomprehensible fullness of purity that is incapable of being other than it is. Because He is holy, His attributes are holy. That is, whatever we think of as belonging to God must be thought of as holy.”
The Power of Holiness subject is so vast and our efforts alone won’t do it justice. To simplify this we are going to deal with two things about the holiness of God. We first want to look at the nature of God’s holiness-what He is. And then we are going to look at our need for personal holiness in our lives because of it.
The nature of Gods holiness:
What is Webster’s dictionary meaning of Holy- That which is Holy or Other, that which is extraordinarily different than anything else. Refers to God’s transcendence, He is higher and more superior than anything else. His goodness and His power is humanly Incomprehensible.
John Wesley stated, “Bring me a worm that can comprehend a man, and then I will show you a man that can comprehend the Triune God.”
In Exodus 15:11, it says in the Song of Moses: “Who is like You, O LORD, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness.” No one is like the Lord in holiness, in being separate, He is totally separate.
1 Samuel 2:2 Hannah said, “No one is holy like the LORD, for there is none besides You, nor is there any rock like our God.”
In Psalms 96:9 says “Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness; tremble before him, all the earth!”
There is power in Gods holiness, in his presence we tremble.
Psalms 104: 1 “Bless the Lord, O my soul! O Lord my God, you are very great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty”
God’s holiness is very great
Exodus 3:5 “Do not come any closer,” Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”
He is so Holy we can’t wear shoes in his presence.
So wherever the Spirit of God is, that place is separated from anything normal, it is changed, it is Holy. So when we come into Gods presence or walk in His Spirit we are now Holy.
1 Peter 1: 13-16 says “Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming. 14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
What do we have to do to become Holy?
God’s holiness exposes our sin problem. Most people run when they come face to face with God’s Holiness. The bible says in Hebrews 12:29 “He is a consuming Fire”. I think Isaiah 6 gives us an inside look at how he does that.
In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!” And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke.
So I said: “Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.” Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth with it,
Characteristics of Mission Minded Person 2 | Christian Discipleship Podcast
CHARACTERISTICS OF A MISSION MINDED PERSON 2 is what we’ll be discussing today on the RIOT Podcast, a Christian Discipleship podcast. Today’s discussion is all about being and living a mission-minded life along with stepping out and sharing your faith with those you come in contact with.
Why? Why do we exist? Why are we doing the things that we’re doing? Why should we make sacrifices or do the hard things? There are two ways we can answer this. One way is as a mission-minded world view kind of a person or secondly as a maintenance-minded person.
Last week’s First 5 Characteristics
1. You desire to meet people that do not know Jesus
2. You look for creative ways to share the gospel with others
3. You live with a different worldview
4. You hear Gods voice and are obedient to go where he ask you to go
5. You pray a lot!
Characteristic 6: You make disciples. Mission-minded people know the importance of discipleship.
Jesus said, “A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher” (Luke 6:40). That’s the whole point of being a disciple of Jesus: we imitate Him, carry on His ministry, and become like Him in the process.
Romans 10:14-15 “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!’
Characteristic 7: You meet human needs while sharing the gospel.
Mission-minded people believe it doesn’t matter how many wells a person digs or how many orphans they feed if they are not following Christ’s mandate to take the gospel to those who have not heard. They contend that if a person is not sharing Jesus, they are wasting time and money.
Matthew 25:44-45 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.'”
Proverbs 19:17 “Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done. ”
Luke 3: 10-11
Characteristic 8: You believe that being mission-minded is not a “task.” It’s a lifestyle.
You live out missions in your everyday life. From the moment you wake up until you go to bed, your goal is to impact the world around your for Gods glory.
This characteristic is similar to living with a different world view. The difference being with that characteristic we are engaged in the culture, we live and are out in public relating with people in their element. This lifestyle characteristics is our metamorphous (transformation) of thought characteristic. We no longer desire anything of the world, our maintenance mindset is no longer in existence. We now do what Paul told the Galatian church “Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” 5:24
Characteristic 9: You are relational and a people person like Jesus was.
You are willing to leave your own “bubble” to make relationships with those considered the “least of these.” You have an awareness of the people around you and look for ways to build a relationship that will lead to sharing Christ and discipleship.
Jesus valued relationships so much that he spent more time walking, talking, eating and drinking with people than he did teaching. … Because while they were talking about God as a set of rules, a set of propositions, Jesus was out living God in relationships.
Characteristics of Mission Minded People – RIOT Podcast – Christian Podcast
CHARACTERISTICS OF A MISSION MINDED PERSON is what we will be talking about today on the RIOT Podcast, a Christian podcast.. Today’s discussion is all about being and living a mission minded life along as stepping out and sharing your faith with those you come in contact with.
Theologian Christopher Wright wrote that, “It is not so much that God has a mission for his church in the world, but that God has a church for his mission in the world…mission was not made for the church; the church was made for mission—God’s mission. Today, “missional” is a popular church word. It’s a good phrase, but it carries a little baggage. Being mission-minded is an effort to balance the realities that the church was made for God’s mission and that the church is itself a mission (in that God is consistently working in His people, transforming us to reflect the character of Christ.)
• Characteristic 1: You desire to meet someone who does not follow Jesus Christ. Mission-minded people follow Jesus’ plan in Luke 10:2 to go work “His harvest.” They actively seek out non-believers for conversations and friendship.
Mission-minded people are committed to learning and speaking the language of the culture they are surrounded by. They avoid speaking ‘Christianese’, using pious prayer language, in-house ‘jargon’, and ‘super-spiritual’ talk around non-believers
• Characteristic 2: You continually look for creative ways to share the gospel. Mission-minded people find intentional ways to share so that people understand. It is not a “canned presentation” but relative to that person/group. They do the abnormal, irrational, counter-intuitive, and take risks all in an effort to share Christ.
Avoiding ‘we-them’ language, or language that belittles people of different political, spiritual, social positions, or is disrespectful of people with who we disagree. Instead, they engage people by humbly admitting our weaknesses and failures, while demonstrating the joyful difference the Gospel makes.
• Characteristic 3: You live with a different worldview. You think more about the world, culture, and languages than you do about the tiny place where you live. You understand that the gospel is not just for yourself but for all people. You are committed to getting it out to the rest of the world.
Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere-in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
Colossians 2:8 See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.
We are not to put our trust in worldly things however we do need to know what’s going on in the world. We must have a knowledge and appreciation of the culture’s movies, books, music, etc., in order to understand the culture’s hopes, dreams, stories, and fears. So, we can show people that only Jesus can fulfill their greatest desires.
• Characteristic 4: You hear the voice of God and are obedient. Mission-minded people hear the voice of God and obey Him when He tells them to go across the street, to another town, state or country to share about His redeeming love.
Isaiah 6:8 Lord here I am send me.
Or the heart of Ruth to Naomi Ruth 1:16 Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.
• Characteristic 5: You pray a lot! Praying is a direct link to God. You believe that God will do greater things than we can ever imagine, and you pray for it to happen.
1 Thess 5:16-18 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Romans 12:9-21 (please look it up)

Christian Nationalism vs Patriotism- Christian Podcast
Christian Nationalism vs Patriotism on the RIOT Podcast, a Christian podcast. Thanks for joining us, hope you enjoy the conversation.
Bob Reads from: Ben Franklin June 28, 1787 Constitutional Convention:
• What is Christian Nationalism?
Christian nationalism is the belief that the American nation is defined by Christianity, and that the government should take active steps to keep it that way. Popularly, Christian nationalists assert that America is and must remain a “Christian nation.
• How is Christian Nationalism Dangerous?
Christianity today article went on to say When nationalists go about constructing their nation, they have to define who is, and who is not, part of the nation. there are always dissidents and minorities who do not or cannot conform to the nationalists’ preferred cultural template. In the absence of moral authority, nationalists can only establish themselves by force. Scholars are almost unanimous that nationalist governments tend to become authoritarian and oppressive in practice. Christian nationalism tends to treat other Americans as second-class citizens. If it were fully implemented, it would not respect the full religious liberty of all Americans. Empowering the state through “morals legislation” to regulate conduct always carries the risk of overreaching, setting a bad precedent, and creating governing powers that could be used later be used against Christians
• Can Christians be politically engaged without being Christian nationalists?
Yes. American Christians in the past helped establish the American experiment, and many American Christians worked to end slavery and segregation and other evils. They did so because they believed Christianity required them to work for justice. But they worked to advance Christian principles, not Christian power or Christian culture, which is the key distinction between normal Christian political engagement and Christian nationalism. Normal Christian political engagement is humble, loving, and sacrificial; it rejects the idea that Christians are entitled to.
• What is the definition of Patriotism:
Patriotism is the love of country regardless of what Country you come from. It is different from nationalism, which is an argument about how to define our country. Christians should recognize that patriotism is good because all of God’s creation is good and patriotism helps us appreciate our particular place in it. Our affection and loyalty to a specific part of God’s creation helps us do the good work of cultivating and improving the part we happen to live in. As Christians, we can and should love our Country and everyone in it—which also means working to improve our country by holding it up for critique and working for justice when it errs.
