    Prophecy End Times – Rapture could it happen today

    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:

    Peace I leave with you, Peace I give you John 14 19-31

    Peace I leave with you, Peace I give you John 14 19-31

    Peace I leave with you, Peace I give you John 14:19-31 is what we will be discussing today on RIOT Podcast, a Christian Discipleship Podcast



    Episode 116 from last week was titled “Fear not, help is here”. My little brother, Bill joined us as a special guest on the show. We covered John 14:16–18, which is when Jesus taught His followers about the Holy Spirit. It was a fantastic show to go back and listen to, if you haven’t already, especially, if you want to learn more about how the Holy Spirit can impact our daily lives.

    This week is a continuation of last week’s show. Today, we will learn how we can enjoy the Father’s love. Romans 5:5 says “The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit which is given unto us.” Orphans feel unwanted and unloved, but our Father shares His love with us. Today, we will see how Jesus shared three manifestations of God’s love with his disciples.

    Let’s Read John 14:19-24 and get started

    In vs 19-20, we see Jesus sharing a past manifestation of His love. Verse 19 focuses on His resurrection and post-resurrection appearances. He is saying, “I have been with you in power for some time now and you will no longer see me physically. But there will be a time you will see me again, when I come back in power, with great glory to judge lost sinners.”

    In vs 21 & 23-24 Jesus is showing a “present manifestation” of himself to the believers. Note the repetition of the word “love”. If we treasure His word and obey it, then the Father and the Son will share Their love with us and make Their home in us. Jesus is saying that we have heaven in us now as we are on a mission with Christ and one day when we die.

    Verses 19- Here, Jesus is saying that there will be a future manifestation when He returns. Judas (not Iscariot), recalled that Jesus had said He would not manifest Himself to the world. This seemed to contradict the other statements that He had made, such as recorded in Matthew 24:30. His question was, “What has come to pass that you are no longer going to reveal yourself to the world?” He is questioning Him as if he is saying, has there been a change in the divine plan?

    One of the best ways to ease a troubled heart is to bathe it in the Love of God. When you feel like an orphan, let the spirit of God reveal God’s love to you in a deeper way.

    Charles Spurgeon said, “Little faith will take your soul to heaven, but great faith will bring heaven to your soul. Your heart can become a heaven on earth, as you commune with Jesus and worship him.”

    Now let’s read John 14:25–31

    In verse 27 the word “peace” there is Shalom, it is a precious word to the Jewish people. It means, much more than just the absence of war or distress. Shalom means “wholeness, completeness, health, security, even prosperity in the best sense.”

    When you are enjoying God’s peace, there is joy and contentment. God’s peace is not like the peace the world offers, it is perfect and everlasting.

    The world bases its peace on its resources, while God’s peace depends on relationships.

    While in the world, peace is something you wish for or strive for, for the Christian peace is a magnificent gift from God that is gained through faith. People who are not saved gain peace when there is no conflict or trouble. Christians however, experience calm and peace despite difficulties and challenges because of the Holy Spirit’s influence and power in our life.

    People in the world walk by sight and depend on the externals, but Christians walk by faith and depend on the eternals.

    In verse 27 it says “The spirit uses the Word to give us His peace”’, In John 15:9-10 He uses the Word to give us His love; in John 15:11 He uses the word to give us Joy.

    In verse 28, Jesus is assuring His disciples they would see Him again. He’s basically saying, rejoice, because I am returning to the Father. They are like,

    Fear not Help is here John 14 16-18

    Fear not Help is here John 14 16-18

    Fear not Help is here John 14 16-18 is the topic that will be discussed today on RIOT Podcast, a Christian Discipleship Podcast.

    In episode 115, titled “Let not your hearts be troubled”, we unpacked John 14:1-15. During the show we talked about the key encouraging assurance statements by Jesus to His disciples. He shared with them that one day they will be with Him in heaven for all eternity. He also shared with them, that now in His name, they can pray directly to the Father and that their prayers will be answered. It was a very encouraging show for anyone that might be going through hard times currently, if you have not listened to it yet, we highly recommend that you do.

    In our coming shows, we are continuing this conversation that Jesus is currently having with His disciples. In today’s show through John 14 verses 16-18, Jesus will be sharing with them about the assurance they will have in the Holy Spirit. In the following shows coming up, we will unpack vs 19-24 when Jesus will talk about how, that when He is gone, they will enjoy the Father’s love and lastly in vs 25-31, Jesus will share with them that they will have the same peace here on earth as He had.

    Let’s read our text for today John 14:16-18

    Jesus had a great deal to say about the Holy Spirit in His upper room message, for apart from the help of the Spirit of God, we cannot live the Christian life as God would have us live it. We must know who the Holy Spirit is, what He does and how He does it.

    Our English word “comfort” comes from two Latin words meaning “with strength”. We usually think of comfort as soothing someone, consoling him or her, and to some extent this is true. But true comfort strengthens us to face life bravely and to keep on going. It does not rob us of responsibility or make it easy for us to give up.

    Vs 17 says that the HS is “the Spirt of Truth”. Here Jesus is relating the HS to himself, “The Truth” and the word of God, which of itself is the truth.

    If we want the HS to work in our lives, then we must seek to glorify Christ, and we must make much of the Word of God.

    When we compare Eph 5:18- 6:9 with Colossians 3:16-4:1. To be filled with the Spirit is the same as to be controlled by the Word. The Spirit of Truth uses the Word of Truth to guide us into the will and the work of God.

    The HS abides in the believer. He is a gift from the Father, an answer to the prayer of Jesus. During His earthly ministry, Jesus had guided, guarded, and taught His disciples, but now He was going to leave them.



    Jesus also called the HS another helper, or in some translations, a councilor or comforter. Jesus said the word “another” before helper, that word translated in Greek means “another of the same kind”.

    So, has the HS been on earth before Jesus?

    Of course. He empowered men and women in the OT to accomplish God’s work. However, during the OT age, the Spirit of God would come upon people and then leave them. Remember King Saul, in 1 Sam 16:14 and David’s writing in Psalm 51:11. Both illustrate the leaving of the HS. In Acts 2 at Pentecost, the HS was given to God’s people to remain with them forever. Even though today, we may grieve the HS, but he will never leave us.

    Something to think about, the way we treat the HS is the way we treat Jesus. The believer’s body is the temple of the Spirit (1 Cor 6:19-20), so what he or she does with their bodies affects the indwelling HS.

    Another truth to remember is that the world cannot receive the Spirt because, the World lives “by sight” and not by faith. The world does not know Jesus, and you cannot have knowledge of the Spirit apart from Jesus.

    Lastly, in vs 18, John uses the word “comfortless”, that word translated in the Greek is “orphans”. We must know that in Jesus we are never alone, abandoned, helpless, or hopeless!

    Wherever we go, the Spirit is with us, so why should we feel like orphans?

    Let not your heart be troubled (John 13:36–14:15)

    Let not your heart be troubled (John 13:36–14:15)

    Let not your heart be troubled (John 13:36–14:15) is the topic that will be discussed today on RIOT Podcast, a Christian Discipleship Podcast.

    In our reading today, we are continuing the conversation the disciples have been having with Jesus at Passover. Jesus is letting them know He will no longer be with them physically and that He now has to go be with the Father.

    We will read in John 13:36-38, Peter asks Jesus where He will be going. Wondering if they could join Him. With the questions that Peter was asking, Jesus shows us that they are perplexing questions, which was causing their hearts to be troubled. We know this because in John 14:1 Jesus tells them, “Let not your heart be troubled.”

    As we read through this chapter, we will see Jesus bring them a sense of calm with encouraging words of comfort. Jesus is the only one who can truly know our hearts. Peter did not know him, and we sometimes have trouble truly knowing our hearts. One thing is for certain: in this life we live, there will come a time when our hearts will be troubled. These next couple of podcasts will help bring to life Jesus’ words of comfort and assurance. We will focus on six wonderful assurances. Assurances that we today may claim and enjoy when life gets messy and confusing.

    Read John 13:36 and John 14:6

    Did you notice Jesus did not rebuke Peter for asking him where He was going? But his reply was somewhat cryptic. He said, “One day, Peter, you will follow me to the cross, and then you will follow me to heaven. But first, you will deny me 3 times.”

    He starts to calm their hearts with the mention of heaven as a real place. It is not a product of religious imagination or the result of a psyched-up mentality, looking for pie in the sky by and by the fairytale. According to Jesus, heaven is the place where God dwells and where Jesus sits today at the right hand of the Father.

    Another encouragement from Jesus we find in Vs. 3 is a clear promise that Jesus will return one day for His people. Some will go to heaven through the “valley of the shadow of death,” but those who are alive when Jesus returns will never see death. 1 Thessalonians 4:13–18 says, “In that day, we will be changed to be like Christ, and we will go to heaven.” What a great promise!

    Thomas’s question revealed his keen desire to be with Jesus, and this meant that he had to know where the Master was going and how he, himself, would get there. Jesus made it clear that He was going to the Father and that He was the only way to the Father. Heaven is a real place, a loving place, and an exclusive place. Not everybody is going to heaven, but rather only those who have trusted in Jesus.

    Jesus assured his disciples that once they died, they would be with Him in heaven for all eternity. Paul wrote in Romans 8:18 that he considered the sufferings of this present time not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. We, along with the disciples, will suffer in some way, shape, or form here on earth, but Jesus’s words give us the eternal blessing of heaven to look forward to.

    Read John 14:7-11

    We do not have to wait until we enter heaven to get to know the Father. We can know Him today and receive from Him the spiritual resources we need to keep going when the days are difficult. What does the term “know the Father” here mean?

    The Greek construction of the question in John 14:10 suggests that the Lord expected Phillip to answer yes. Remember Jesus asking Philip, “Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you, I do not speak on my authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works.” Philip should have realized that the words of Jesus, as well as His works, came from the Father and revealed the Father.

    The word “Believe” used in John 14:10 is singular, for Jesus was addressing Phillip, but in John 14:11, it is plural,

    Humility with Holiness brings Happiness (John 13:12-35)

    Humility with Holiness brings Happiness (John 13:12-35)

    Humility with Holiness brings Happiness (John 13:12-35) is the topic that will be discussed today on RIOT Podcast, a Christian Discipleship Podcast.

    In last week’s show, we talked about “humility and grace” and it was a powerful one. If you haven’t listened to it yet, we highly recommend you go back and listen after this show. This week, we will be in John 13:12-35 to finish off this chapter. The three key highlights in our reading today are: 1st, Judas Iscariot is pointed out as a traitor by Jesus to the disciples; 2nd, The battle between darkness and light; 3rd, Jesus is teaching His disciples that, in order for people to know that they are His disciples, they will know them by their love for each other.

    Read John 12:12-17 to start off our reading. This section is a continuation of our reading from last week of Jesus washing the disciples’ feet.

    I notice here that John 13:17 is the key verse in this section, where it says, “If you know these things, happy are you who do them.” What is Jesus talking about?

    Jesus asked the disciples if they understood what He had done regarding washing their feet, and it is likely that they did not. So, what we read here, is that Jesus is explaining to them the lesson in humble service. He said this is an example for them to follow. The world thinks that happiness results from others serving us, but the real joy comes when we serve others in the name of Christ.

    Jesus was their master, so he had every right to command their service. Instead, He served them! He gave them an example of true Christian ministry. On more than one occasion during the previous three years that Jesus has been with them, He had taught them lessons about humility and service, but now He had physically demonstrated the lesson to them.

    The world asks, “how many people work for you?”. But Jesus asks, “how many people do you work for and serve?” Our leadership should be measured by our servant’s heart within us. The last will be first, the first will be last, (Mathew 20:16). We should care more about the people, than the work they do, and in return, the work they do will be more productive.

    Let’s move on to read verses 18-35. But before we do, be sure to keep these lessons that Jesus has taught us in this chapter close to our hearts. The sequence is, we first must be humble, then walk holy, then we will receive the fulfillment of happiness. Submit to the Father’s will, keep your life clean, and serve others. The true formula for true spiritual joy.

    A dark shadow now fell across the scene as Jesus dealt with Judas, the traitor. It is important to note, as we mentioned last week, that Judas was not a true believer, but he was a hypocrite. Remember in last week’s show, we said He had never believed in Jesus.

    Read John 6:64-71

    In vs 21, it says that Jesus was troubled in his spirit. Jesus was concerned that Judas’s treachery would not weaken His disciple’s faith. This is why He related it to the Word of God. When the disciples saw all of this fulfilled, it would make their faith stronger.

    The most remarkable thing is that everyone sitting at the table with Jesus did not know that Judas was an unbeliever and a traitor. Up to the very hour of his treachery, Judas was protected by the Savior whom he betrayed.

    I Sam 16 (v. 7) For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. God does not judge us by our outward behavior or our acts like man does, but by the intents and desires of the heart.

    Peter signaled to John, whom Jesus loved, and who was the closest to Jesus at the table, to ask him who the traitor was. Jesus replied by saying “It is whom I give this bread to”. To the disciples, this probably didn’t register yet because, this was an act that was interpreted as an act of love and honor, so Jesus’ actions were seen in that light.

    Even though Satan had entered Judas,

    Do you desire Humility and Grace?

    Do you desire Humility and Grace?

    Do you desire Humility and Grace? is the topic that will be discussed today on RIOT Podcast, a Christian Discipleship Podcast.

    Last year we unpacked John 1-12. John detailed to us the truth of Jesus’s claims as the Messiah. Time and time again, he proved to us through the testimony of many eyewitnesses that Jesus truly is who He says He is. His testimony of Jesus’s teachings showed us that Jesus spent 3 years preparing His disciples for His departure. As we begin this year in John 13, we will see Jesus’s farewell tour, as He begins to give His disciples their final exam. Jesus’s earthy ministry, as they have known it, is now over. He is now transitioning into His final hours, where He will leave them to carry on His work.

    In chapters 13-21, John presents, for the most part, the private ministry of Christ with His own Disciples. He was preparing them for their future service when the Holy Spirit would come and empower them.

    Last year, we already studied the days leading up to today’s reading. We learned Jesus had entered Jerusalem on Sunday and then on Monday had cleansed the temple. Tuesday, was a day of conflict as the religious leaders sought to trip Him up and get evidence to arrest Him. The details of these events are in Mathew’s chapters 21-25. Wednesday, was probably a day of rest, and in our reading today, it must be Thursday, as He is meeting with His disciples in the upper room to observe the Passover. Here, Jesus washes His disciples’ feet.

    Read John 13:1-5

    We observe two things in these 5 verses. The first emphasis in verses 1-3 is on what Jesus knew, and the second is in verses 4-5 on what Jesus did. Jesus knew that his hour has come. More than any of the other gospel writers, John emphasized the fact that Jesus lived on a heavenly timetable, as He did the Father’s will.

    What was this divinely appointed hour? It was the time when Jesus would be glorified through His death, resurrection, and ascension. From a human point of view, it meant suffering, but from the divine point of view, it meant glory. He would soon leave this world and return to the Father who sent him, Jesus had finished His work on earth.

    Jesus also knew that Judas would betray Him. Judas is mentioned eight times in John’s gospel, more than in any of the other gospels. Why?

    Let’s unpack Vs 3 a little further, where it says “the Father had given Him all things”. This statement parallels John 3:35, “The Father loves the Son and has given all things into his hand.” It also reminds us of Mathew 11:27 “All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him”.

    In Vs 4 and 5 the disciples must have been shocked when they saw their Master rise from supper, lay aside His outer garments, wrap a towel around His waist, take a basin of water, and wash their feet.

    Jesus knew His disciples’ hearts and He knew that they had a competitive spirit about them. We read within a few minutes; the men were disputing over which of them was the greatest in Luke 22:24-30.

    The Father had put all things into Son’s hands, yet Jesus picked up a towel and a basin! His humility was not born of poverty but of riches. He was rich, yet He became poor (2 Cor 8:9)

    Jesus was sovereign, yet He took the place of a servant. He had all things in His hands, yet He picked up a towel. He was Lord and Master, yet He served others.

    Read John 13:6-11 and see Peter’s impulsive statement out of ignorance and then his correction by Jesus.

    The word translated as “wash” in John 13:5-6 is “nipto” and means “to wash a part of the body”. But the word “washed” in John 13:10 is “louo” and means “to bathe all over”. The distinction is important, for Jesus was trying to teach His disciples the importance of a holy walk.

Excellent Teaching!

There are too many people who are Halfway Christians. I was raised Catholic, later, not knowing any better, went to a Progressive church. Now, born again, God’s given me the passion to reach out to these Halfway Christians.

I’m going to share this podcast. You hit it right on the head. There’s a sense of urgency to reach as many people as possible.

God bless you as you go about working the harvest!
