MARANATHA -- OUR LORD, COME!
Renald Showers, 1995
This book is an in-depth study of matters related to the Rapture of the church. It addresses such issues as the birth-pang concept in the Bible and ancient Judaism, the biblical concept of the Day of the Lord, the relationship of the Day of the Lord to the Time of Jacobs Trouble and the Great Tribulation, the identification of the sealed scroll of Revelation 5, the significance of the seals, the imminent coming of Christ, the analogy of John 14:2-3, the relationship of the Rapture to the coming of Christ with His holy angels, the relationship of church saints to the wrath of God, the significance of 2 Thessalonians 2, the implications of both the 70-week prophecy of Daniel 9 and the references to Israel and the church in the Book of the Revelation, the meaning of the last trump, and why the timing of the Rapture has practical implications for daily living and ministry.
Part I: Preliminary Considerations
Part II: Biblical Inferences for the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church
