End-Time Bible Prophecy is rapidly escalating (eschatology). Of course as The Holy Bible says, there are always those scoffers who do not believe the Second Coming of Jesus Christ is closer with each passing day. His coming follows a resurrection-event Christians call "The Rapture"; simply meaning we are caught away to heaven, before God's wrath falls on this current world of rejecters of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. During this Great Tribulation, Satan's temporary godship over the unsaved (the non-born again) - 1 Corinthians 4:4, will be dissolved, while Christians rule and reign on the earth as His kings and priests.

QUOTE: "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” - 2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV.

QUOTE: "And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth." - Revelation 5:10 KJV
This glorious time with Jesus on earth, for 1,000 years, is called "His Millennial Reign".

QUOTE: "Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years." - Revelation 20:6.

It is extremely important for the "scoffers", to take Jesus Christ seriously because He died for you, by shedding His blood and dying on a cross of crucifixion; beaten horrendously and nailed to crossbeams of wood - with a crown of thorns imbedded into His head. Once dying Jesus was placed in a tomb, but was raised from the dead by God's power three days later.

He shed His blood for our redemption - sin forgiveness and for us to become born again spirits that are created within us when we accept Him (John 3:16). He was raised from the dead, so that we too will be resurrected to eternal life, in glorified, never-to-die-again bodies of perfect health and no sin-temptations or sadness ever touching us again! This phase is ETERNAL, meaning eternity-forward, never-ending!

DO NOT be blind to the signs all around us currently, that this age we live in, is soon to pass away, giving way to the rulership of Jesus Christ our Lord. Afterward, when the earth is re-made Revelation Chapter 21), Heaven, where Our Heavenly Father abides, with His Son at His right hand and with the omnipresent Holy Spirit's presence (the triune Godhead/Holy Trinity), will join with the remade earth.

This follows Christ's Millennial Reign and the final judgements of both the unsaved/sinners and the born again/Christians has taken place. Please read a good Gospel tract, if you are not saved or read one of the Gospels in The New Testament (Matthew, Mark, Luke or John), the shortest being "Mark's Gospel".

QUOTE: "knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” - 2 Peter 3:3-4 NKJV.

Author's Bio: 

I am a graduate of Liberty University (1996) for completion of theological studies. Bible studies are one of my most-covered book-subjects. I am however, careful to only address those subjects I believe God has given me correct revelation on. I was a Christian Youth Minister, beginning in the 1980s for approximately 20 years (between youth ministries I served in other church capacities as well). I was also a guest speaker to churches, who invited me to present important Bible teachings to their evangelical congregations, during those same years. I am a redeemed man, who has received salvation by acceptance of Jesus Christ and what he did for me in shedding his blood and dying for me on the cross and in his resurrection from the dead, giving me the promise of eternal life, purely by grace (not due to anything I have done, other than to accept it freely).
