Watch Israel - Know About the Rapture


Dr. T. SATYA RAO
There are two points that people ought to
know these days: one is Israel, and another is
the Rapture. However, these subjects are not
preached to the world by many Christian
preachers. The Bible fully reveals about these
two topics, so that a man of our generation may
prepare himself for his eternal future. The Lord
Jesus Christ exhorted the people with these
words in Mark13: But take ye heed: behold, I
have foretold you all things. Lest coming
suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say
unto you I say unto all, Watch (Vs. 23, 36,
37).
What should we watch? Obviously, we
have to watch the fulfillment of the biblical
prophecy on Israel and then get ready for the

Rapture (Read 1 Thess. 4:1618 & 1


Cor.15:5153). The Lord Jesus Christ sat on
the slopes of the Mount of Olives with His
disciples giving them scope to ask Him an
important, private question about the end time.
And as he sat upon the Mount of Olives, the
disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell
us, when shall these things be? and what shall
be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the
world? (Matt 24:3). The Lord gave, very
graciously, many details about His Second
Coming and about the end of the age. To mark
the end time, one thing the Lord specifically told
them was the rebirth of the nation of Israel.
Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his
branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye

WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE

know that summer is nigh (Matt 24:32).


We have seen from the Scripture that the
fig tree pictures the nation of Israel. In Matt. 21,
the Lord Jesus cursed a fig tree for its
fruitlessness, and the fig tree quickly withered
up. By this the Lord showed the symbolic
judgment which the nation of Israel suffered for
their unfruitful life. However, the Lord now says,
when the punished Israel is restored as a nation,
this would be the right sign for His Second
Coming. For about 1900 years, Israel has been
dormant, with no land, no government of its own,
no Temple, and no priests. There was no sign of
their national life. Their Hebrew language also
became a dead language. The people were
scattered throughout the world.
However, in 1948, on May 14th, Israel
became a nation miraculously with its own land,
national flag, currency, government and all
development activities. They got back Jerusalem,
which was destroyed on the 8th of September
70 A.D by the Roman General Titus. The sixday war of Israel in June 1967 helped them to
recover eastern Jerusalem, which was under
Muslim rule. This happened on June 7, 1967.
The Lord declared that when the nation
of Israel will be reborn, that very generation,
which sees the beginning of these things, will see
the end, which is end of the age. The same
people, who see the rise of Israel as a nation,
will see the Lord Jesus coming in the clouds of
heaven to reign. Our generation is that generation
about which the Lord mentioned. Israels
emergence as a nation declares that the Lords
Second Coming is near, at the very doors. If
Christs Second Coming is so near, how much

February, 2012

more imminent is the Rapture of the Church?


This is a very important matter for believers.
Only after the Church goes up in Rapture, Israel
will have the prophecy of Daniel 9:24 fulfilled,
which says Israel will be converted, their people
and their Holy City will be freed from sin and
evil. Their sins will be forgiven, their eternal
justice is established, and the Holy Temple will
be rededicated. Paul also says, And so all Israel
shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come
out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away
ungodliness from Jacob (Rom. 11:26). This will
happen during the second half of the Tribulation
period.
God also told in the Old Testament about
the rebirth of the nation of Israel. In the vision of
Ezekiel 37, God showed how the old, dead, and
dried bones would come to life. It happened
when Ezekiel prophesied. This prophecy is about
the rebirth of Israel as a nation at a later time.
This prophecy was fulfilled in 1948. In Ezekiel
chapter 39 God tells how Russia, Iran, Libya,
Ethiopia and many other countries would move
against the land of Israel. After many days thou
shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come
into the land that is brought back from the sword,
and is gathered out of many people, against the
mountains of Israel, which have been always
waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations,
and they shall dwell safely all of them. Thou
shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt
be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all
thy bands, and many people with thee (Ezek.
38:8, 9). But God warned, And I will plead
against him with pestilence and with blood; and
I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and

WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE

upon the many people that are with him, an


overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and
brimstone (Ezek. 38:22). He also declared,
Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel,
thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is
with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds
of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be
devoured (Ezek. 39:4). Thus, when we come
to chapter 40 of Ezekiel, we see the details of
the Temple which will be rebuilt in Jerusalem.
This prophecy tells us that the Temple in
Jerusalem will come up after Russia and Iran
followed by other nations attack Israel. Todays
world news is nearly proving that Ezekiels
prophecy is going to take place in our days. Iran
is allegedly developing nuclear installations and
it became a direct threat to the very existence of
the nation of Israel. Russia is supporting Iran
outrightly in its nuclear development program.
Israel has readied itself to attack militarily the
nuclear installations of Iran, and the world news
says it may happen this spring. Russia issued a
warning that any such attack made on Iran will
be taken as if Russia is attacked and will retaliate.
All these things of the present world news
indicate how nearer the world is to the fulfillment
of Ezekiels prophecy of chapters 38 40.
Moreover, immediately after the Temple is built
in Jerusalem, Daniels prophecy of 9:27 will
begin to be fulfilled. The Antichrist will enter into
the Temple and cause abomination. The Lord
Jesus Christ confirmed this prophecy in Matt.
24:15. When ye therefore shall see the
abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel
the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso
readeth, let him understand). Before this

February, 2012

happens, the Church will be taken away in the


Rapture. This is shown in 2 Thess. 2:7, 8. For
the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only
he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out
of the way. And then shall that Wicked be
revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the
spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the
brightness of his coming. These verses give a
clear understanding of how the Church will go
out of the earth in the Rapture at that time. The
Church means the people who are truly born
again, regenerated and who are waiting for the
Lords coming to mid-air for their sake as per
the promise of John 14:3 and also Heb. 9:28.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will
come again, and receive you unto myself; that
where I am, there ye may be also (John 14:3).
So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of
many; and unto them that look for him shall he
appear the second time without sin unto
salvation (Heb. 9:28).
The Lord Jesus Christ emphasized that our
present generation is the last generation (Matt.
24:34). We are living in the dying hours of this
age and our lives on the planet earth are on a
borrowed time. As we watch Israel, the vision
of the Rapture followed by the 7 years of
Tribulation and the Second Coming of our Lord
Jesus is coming before our eyes. These days it
is important to watch the developments in Israel.
Frederick the Great once asked his chaplain,
Doctor, if your religion is a true one, it ought to
be capable of very brief and simple proof. Will
you give me an evidence of its truth in one word?
The answer from the man of God was Israel.
Yes, indeed God brought them in 1948 back to

WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE

their own land and today it is a well-established


nation with great military might. The Jews in the
world are 13.2 million (1 crore, 32 lakhs). 41%
of them, which is about 54,12,000, live in the
nation of Israel, and that is much less compared
with the population of the city of Hyderabad.
Although they are less than two-thirds of 1% of
the worlds population, yet Israel is a strong
nation today, said to be the worlds third military
power. This is so because of the prophecy of
the word of God that God Himself would restore
all their wealth and greatness before the Lords
Second Coming. All of this warns the believers

February, 2012

that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming for His


faithful waiting children any moment now, and
that too without any formality. Those who are
not taken up in Rapture will have to go through
the awful Tribulation period.
Dear reader, if you are not saved and if
you are not ready for the Rapture, you will suffer
disappointment, which will be unbearable for
you. Today, you must get out of your spiritual
sleep by repentance and be prepared to meet
the Lord in the air.

In this month, I went to the town of Kavali


(Nellore District), where the Lord commanded
me to speak four days continually. These special
meetings took place after forty days of fasting and
prayer by the saints of Kavali town. To my
surprise, the people gathered there to hear the
word of God are all Hindu converts. These
converts are from different castes of Hindu
religion. It is amazing to see that their conversions
are in their own desire and according to their own
will, but not from their parents. The Lord gave
me much liberty of spirit to tell them the need to
prepare for the Rapture and what great plan the
Lord has got for them for their eternal future. They
understood what is written in 1 Cor. 2:9. But as
it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard,
neither have entered into the heart of man, the
things which God hath prepared for them that love

him. Many confessed that the Lord has graciously


revealed to them the great mystery of His plan
for their future. There was indeed a great revival.
My surprise was how these Hindu people found
Jesus and gave their hearts to Him. Gods servant
and his wife there are also of the same testimony.
Praise the Lord; He is separating the humble and
seeking souls for receiving the truth of the Lord
Jesus Christ. Here we are reminded of the
prophecy of end days. He that is unjust, let him
be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be
filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be
righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy
still (Rev. 22:11). Kindly pray that the Lord may
continue to strengthen them and prepare them for
the Rapture.
