Many Christians expect Jesus to return in their lifetime. Why? Because Jesus promised, “I will come again and receive you unto Myself.” At the rapture, the apostle Paul writes Christians will be caught up from the earth, or raptured, to meet Christ in the air, and to travel with Him to His father’s house in heaven. But at Christ’s second coming, different events happen. The Bible says Jesus will come all the way down to planet earth, where His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives. He will rescue believers and usher them into His millennial kingdom on earth. What are the eight differences the Bible teaches will occur at the rapture that will not happen at the second coming? And what are the eight different things that will happen at the second coming that will not occur at the rapture?

My guests today are: Dr. Renald Showers, widely recognized as one of the most distinguished theologians in America, and author of numerous books. My second guest is international journalist and prophecy scholar Dr. Jimmy DeYoung, who has lived and worked in the Middle East for over 20 years. He will report on how events in our world today are rapidly leading toward the events the ancient Jewish prophets predicted will come about in the last day.

About The John Ankerberg Show
A weekly half-hour nationwide television program whose purpose is to demonstrate that Christianity is true so that our viewers will embrace it for themselves and learn to share it effectively with others. The formats of choice for this apologetics ministry are informal debates between representatives of differing belief systems, and documentary-styled presentations on major issues in society to which the historic Christian faith has something of consequence to say. The programs are designed to reach and appeal to a thinking audience of Christians and non-Christians alike.
