Understanding Matthew 24:13 – “But he who endures to the end shall be saved.”

Matthew 24:13 is often quoted to refute Christian’s who believe in eternal security or “once saved – always saved” (OSAS).  Both sides of this hotly debated issue are popular, as there seems to be a 50/50 split among those who believe it has merit versus those who don’t.  One side believes our salvation is eternally secure once we accept and receive Christ as our Lord and savior, but it seems that just as many believe that we can lose our salvation.  Personally, I believe this scripture is most often misunderstood, misapplied and taken out of context.  In this post I hope to shed more light on this subject and share a completely different perspective, so let’s jump right into the scripture in context.

The Readiness Rapture – Part 2 (rewards for cold, hot & lukewarm believers)

We don’t often hear much about this, but as I was connecting some dots, as I often do, this new revelation just seemed to fall right into my lap.  This post will introduce new details relating to the rapture as well as provide more scriptural evidence in support of the different rewards (cold, hot & lukewarm) believers will receive when Christ returns.  It also serves as confirmation for my new rapture theory that isn’t very well known at this early stage, but hopefully that will change as we draw nearer to the time of the end.  For those who have never heard of my new rapture theory, here’s the link to part one: https://ruready.blog/2018/03/01/the-readiness-rapture-its-not-just-another-rapture-theory/ Continue reading

DANIEL’S 70th WEEK – (The Gap Theory)

Why I believe Matthew 24 is Daniel’s 70th Week, the final 7 years.
.
+ Matt. 24:4-14 = Time of sorrows (birth pains – 3 1/2 yrs.)
+ Matt. 24:15 = Abomination of desolation (end of sacrifices)
+ Matt. 24:16-28 = Great tribulation (3 1/2 years)
+ Matt. 24:29-31 = (Rapture) End of 70th week / Times of the Gentiles fulfilled

Revelation 6: The Four Horsemen & the Seven Seals

By Robert Hunt
.
Some scholars believe we have already entered the tribulation, and that all of the four horsemen have begun to ride.  Many others believe the seven seals parallel the conditions Christ outlined in His Olivet Discourse.  Yet other scholar’s base their beliefs on the various colors of the horses in the first four seals.  But since I disagree with all of the theories above, I had to take a road less traveled.  So I set out to blaze a new trail.

Antichrist – A very popular misconception

The apostle John mentioned the term “antichrist” five (5) times and in only four (4) verses of scripture, and all of these are found in 1 John and 2 John.  He also penned the book of Revelation near the end of the first century; but I find it very, very interesting that he did not mention “antichrist,” not even once in the book of Revelation.  Have you ever wondered why he failed to mention antichrist in the book of Revelation?  Maybe, just maybe there’s a good reason, and I believe there is.  And I believe the passage below left us a very strong clue.

FOR THOSE WHO SAY, “THERE WILL BE NO RAPTURE.”

It is true the word “rapture” isn’t found in the Bible.  However, Jesus called it the “gathering together of His elect” and it’s in red letters.  There was no single word in the first century to describe this previously unknown event when it was first introduced as a mystery.  So Christ and the apostle Paul said a phrase in their own words to describe it instead.  This future event was foretold nearly 2000 years ago (Dan. 12:2, Matt. 24:30-31, 1 Thes. 4:16-17 & 1 Cor. 15:51-53), and today we simply call it the rapture, short & simple.

The 7 Year Tribulation Misconception

By: Robert Hunt
.
Many biblical scholars’ and teachers refer to Daniel’s 70th week as the so-called 7 year tribulation, and they believe the son of perdition will commit the abomination of desolation in the middle of this seven year period.  I, too, agree that the future man of sin will commit the abomination in the middle of the seven years, but this 7 year period is not the biblical tribulation.  It’s true that the abomination of desolation will occur in the middle of Daniel’s 70th week, but it will also precede the actual tribulation period.  Therein lies the problem; and referring to Daniel’s 70th week as the so-called 7 year tribulation has done nothing but confuse a lot of sincere believers who are seeking God’s truth.

THE READINESS RAPTURE: It’s not just another Rapture theory

By Robert Hunt
.
This may seem kind of strange to some, but when I got saved in the summer of 1989, the Lord told me I was going to write, even though I wasn’t even a writer at that time, far from it.  I’ll spare you the long story of how all of that unfolded, but learning how to type, write and biblical studies was a very slow process.  Only after decades of diligent study would I finally go on to publish a book, which seemed amazing to me.  And not only was the Lord faithful to keep His promise, but there was another unexpected surprise when I had finished.  And that was, that my book also contains a brand new rapture theory that just seemed to have developed accidentally.  I mean, it was never my intention to create a new rapture theory.  That thought had never even crossed my mind.  This new theory just seemed to develop somehow when I was breaking down the scriptures and adding commentary, while writing my manuscript.  I had no idea my words were going to design a new theory.  I didn’t even realize it until I finished proof-reading the first proof-copy of my book.  I was checking for errors and typos before it went to print and that’s when it finally hit me!  I was totally surprised, as the Lord never said anything about a new rapture theory.  Continue reading

Why the Cosmic Signs of the Son of Man and the 6th Seal occur at different times

By Robert Hunt – Oct. 28, 2017
.
Many scholars believe that Matthew 24:29-31 and Revelation 6:12-15 are speaking about the same event and time.  At first glance they may appear to be the same event, but I’m going to show how they are different events that will occur at least two (2) weeks apart.  This is important to know because many believe the rapture and second coming will occur on the same day.  This blog post will blow that theory right out of the water.  Let’s begin by comparing the two passages of scripture below.

Why the Sign of the Son of Man is the Rapture – not the Second Coming

By Robert Hunt
.
No doubt, the rapture has become a very controversial subject among Christians, and some don’t even believe it will happen.  The apostle Paul called it a profound mystery.  Christ’s disciples asked Him for the sign of His coming and the end of the age (Matt. 24:3).  Yet many scholars today don’t believe that Matthew 24 has anything to do with the rapture, but only the second coming instead.  Many other scholars believe it relates to both, the rapture and the second coming.  But what if both of those beliefs are incorrect?  Suppose the sign of the Son of man and the gathering of His elect in Matthew 24 is only the rapture, and not His physical second coming to the earth.  That would change everything, right?  But wait, there’s more, a lot more!
