With the widely expected failure of Harold Camping’s prediction of the Rapture occurring on May 21,2011, it occurred to me to re-rerun a previous article I had published along those lines. Actually, there were two articles I had considered re-running, with the second addressing the potential dangers in such predictions. But I decided to simply express my thoughts about the prediction here and include links to the two articles. To read the first, TIMES AND SEASONS OF THE KINGDOM, click here . For the second, BEWARE KINGDOM CITIZEN, click here . Like many others, I expected the Camping Doomsday prediction to go “belly up.” But I had refrained from making a public statement about it lest I be mistaken for an agnostic or scoffer. While one could talk about the spirit of the true believer knowing when the “End of the Age” is imminent, my expectation of the prediction falling apart was actually based on Scriptural indications. As the Lord would say, “ The scripture cannot be broken” (John 1


“Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side. Then thou shall see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee ” (Isaiah 60:4,5).

To do this, we will consider the Lord’s promise through Joel: “Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil. And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great ar


In Kings and Priests , we saw how the apostle John was caught up to Heaven to see a symbolic representation of the composition and organisational structure of the Armies of Heaven – comprising Christ and His redeemed saints – that will invade planet Earth to establish and reign over the promised kingdom.  The scene that he saw comprised One sitting on a central throne, twenty-four Elders upon lesser thrones, and four Beasts, likened to a lion, an ox, a man and an eagle (see Revelation 4:1-5:10). As I bore out in my Horsepower series of articles, the heavenly scene is not only a depiction of the government of the literal kingdom of Heaven, but is also a pattern of the government of the earthly kingdom that “the God of Heaven” shall set up (see Daniel 2:44) through the instrumentality of the Anointed One and His redeemed saints. The One seated on the central throne (God Almighty) is representative of Christ the Commander-in-Chief of the Armies of Heaven . The twenty-four Elders are sy
