Editor's Note:

Here is a Question: Why does Jesus say that the Day of His coming will be like the day of Noah and the day of Lot? If you understand the similarities and the differences between these days, you will understand if and when the Rapture will happen and why there is so much confusion in this area.

This is a book that my uncle, Ken Schwebel, wrote. He has authorized me to edit and publish this book. It is a work that he spent at least 20 years working on. He wrote it to help God's people understand prophecy, the rapture, the second coming of Christ, and what it means for us. Let's face it, there is much confusion in this area. But God promised that His people should not be caught by surprise in His coming for them.

I Thessalonians 5:4 "But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief."

My uncle has put together some things from God's Word that no other prophecy teacher has taught, but not because it is of him. For these things are clearly laid out in God's Word. God's people in the end of the Church Age will understand.


Simple premises will guide us thoroughly, clearly, and Biblically.

You’ll be blessed by insight into Jesus’ promises.

An irenic spirit of healing and Biblical unity can only rest on truth.

Regarding these promises,

Believers who love God more than tradition can become one as God is One.

Chapter 1

JESUS WANTS US TO KNOW

                “Tell ye, and bring them near: yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? have not I the Lord? and there is none beside me; a just God and a savior; there is none beside me.” (Isa. 45:21)

God wants you to come “near.”

Bring your friends, “Take counsel together.”

See how His ability to “declare this from ancient time,”

His work as “Savior,”

Proves that He alone is God.

That same Savior-God wants you to know His plan for you.

                Your tender Shepherd has spoken about His plan.  He offers Believers one hope of our calling.  His flock hears His voice.  They are safe in His care. They are born again by the Holy Spirit.  They are distinguished by their love for the members of His “One body, and one spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling” (Eph. 4:4)?

                Which is the hope has He called us to: pre-Trib, mid-Trib., partial Rapture, pre-Wrath, or a post-Trib. Rapture?  Or is it Amillennialism?  While God offers “One Blessed Hope,” professed believers dispute His Word from beginning to end, from creation to the Blessed Hope.  Wrong theology saddens Him today, as it did when He came to die for us at the ultimate Passover.

                Six days before that Passover, Jesus was in the Bethany home of Simon the healed leper (Jn. 12:1,2).  Martha was serving supper.  Her brother Lazarus sat with Jesus and others around the table.  His followers were unaware that Lazarus’ resurrection a few days earlier had filled the Pharisees with fear.  They had no such power of life.  So, they plotted for Jesus’ death (Jn. 11:44-53).

                Suddenly Martha’s sister, Mary, poured a pound of precious ointment over Jesus’ hair.  Jesus said she was preparing Him for burial (Jn. 12:7,8).  Judas scorned the waste of funds.  These people who were closest to the Lord needed God to give them insight, for even they were confused and slow to believe some of what He wanted them to know.

                For a few days Jesus taught huge crowds in the temple as He delivered MillennialKingdom parables and confounded the Jewish leaders.  Each night He moved His class to the east, across the Kidron valley and up the Mount of Olives toward his friends’ home in Bethany (Lk. 21:37).  There He taught His inner circle about the Seventieth Week of Jerusalem (Mat. 24:3) and the promised Kingdom.
