Last Days Prophecy: A Jewish Believer’s Perspective. Millions of Christians anticipate a secret and silent, pre-tribulation rapture, whisking them away to the glorious marriage supper of the Lamb. This concept is alluring. It would be a source of comfort to not pass through a coming great tribulation. Although this doctrine has wide appeal, does biblical evidence confirm it as truth? The author contends from biblical prophecy that in the foreseeable future even those who have enjoyed religious freedom will be persecuted for faith in Christ. As they are dragged to prison and even martyrdom, they will be ridiculed as 2 Peter 3:3-4 predicts: “First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, ‘Where is this “coming” he promised?'” As a Jewish believer in Christ, Steven Sherman, understands the feasts, fasts, and festivals found in the Old Testament which are most valuable in comprehending Bible prophecy. Revelation’s prophecies were declared millennia ago for the benefit of God’s church. The foreknowledge of the end of the age has been revealed to the elect so that the elect will be encouraged to stand firm even while facing death and the tumultuous events of the tribulation. Indeed Christ shall return for His church but will the church’s purity shine from the fires of persecution? Understanding prophecy correctly will help the church be ready as a spotless bride for the bridegroom.
