Coming Signs

Dr. Stephen Phinney

Discover the difference between the RAPTURE & the SECOND COMING!

The next earthly movement is the Great Apostasy, which is active today. The Apostasy will lead up to the Rapture – when Christ will gather His Bride, indwelt Christians, and take them to Heaven.

After the Rapture, there will be a seven-year global reign, led by the Antichrist. The last half of this Tribulation is called The Great Tribulation. The first half will be fake peace. The second half will be torturous. When the Tribulation concludes, Jesus will return with His Bride/Church and establish His earthly Kingdom, which will last one thousand years – The Great White Throne of Judgment. The return of Christ to earth between the Tribulation and the reign of Jesus is called the Second Coming.

  • During the Apostasy, multitudes will renounce their faith in Christ.

  • At the Rapture, Jesus will call forth His believers. At the Second Coming, He will return WITH His Bride/Saints.

  • At the Rapture, Jesus will NOT return to the earth. At the Second Coming, He will return to the Mount of Olives in Israel to begin His earthly one-thousand-year reign.

  • At the Rapture, Jesus embraces His Bride in the air. At the Second Coming, He will bring judgment for those who have rejected Him.

  • The Rapture will happen once God accomplishes His mission with the Apostasy. The Second Coming will occur seven years from that moment.

No human or angel knows the timestamp of the Rapture. However, in Matthew 24 Jesus gives us warning signs of the Second Coming. While the Father alone knows the time, we know His return is approaching as we see the six signs He mentions in Matthew 24. These signs will unfold shortly before, and during, the Tribulation. We see each of them manifesting in our culture & church today.
