An Additional Explosion

Since Dr. Jeffress’ speech was delivered in 2013, the Supreme Court of the United States has set off an additional explosion — its abominable decision in June 2015 to legalize same-sex marriage, making our nation’s implosion even more certain and more imminent.

It was a despicable day in American history when President Obama decided to celebrate this court decision by lighting up the White House in the colors of the Sexual Perversion Movement.

A Great Opportunity

In January of 2017 Jeffress was granted the high honor of being invited to deliver the inauguration sermon to President-elect Trump and his family and staff at St. John’s Episcopal Church, located across the street from the White House.

The sermon was short and to the point. Jeffress focused on the story of Nehemiah rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, and he commented wryly at the beginning, “You see, God is not against wall building.”19 Jeffress emphasized three points in his sermon. First, he assured Trump that he would face major criticisms as any “true leader” does because there are only three ways to avoid criticism: “do nothing, say nothing and be nothing.” He encouraged Trump to not allow his critics to distract him.20

Second, Jeffress stressed that Nehemiah refused to allow setbacks to stop him. As with criticism, Jeffress assured Trump he would suffer many setbacks, and he encouraged him not to allow them to discourage or stop him.21

Third, Jeffress underlined the fact that Nehemiah sought God’s help to empower him. In like manner, Jeffress told Trump that he would never be able to accomplish his goals in his own power or with his own natural abilities. Rather, he would “need God’s supernatural power.”22

Jeffress concluded his sermon by reminding Trump of two quotations — one from Ronald Reagan and the other from the Bible. The Reagan quote was taken from a speech of his to the Republican National Convention in Dallas in 1984. He said: “America needs God more than God needs America. If we ever forget that we are ‘one nation under God,’ then we will be a nation gone under.”

The Scripture quote was taken from Psalm 33:12:

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD.

  • The president needs, desires, and appreciates our prayers. I believe God has appointed him for this time, but he needs God’s supernatural power to do all that God has commissioned him to do.

  • No doubt in my mind that we are going to suffer impending judgment because we have reached the same kind of world that was in place during the Days of Noah and the Great Flood.

  • I also believe that we are at a point of no return when the Holy Spirit is being taken from the earth. Evil is too ingrained in our society, lawlessness, immorality, abortion especially the dissecting of fetal parts for profit, how can God ever forgive this nation. Many in Washington try to stall President Trump’s agenda to reform America and bring back credibility, honesty, and accountability, sanctity of life, uphold God’s laws of marriage between a man and a woman, but there are too many evil people fighting him. Look how man’s thoughts are evil continuously to smear, or destroy their opposition because they hate. This tells me God has given them over to depraved minds, they can no longer function with any intelligence or common sense. I keep wondering how bad it gets before the Lord comes for the true church of believers.

    • Who opens the seven seals from the very first Seal Judgment? Jesus, right. Where do the angels receive the seven Trumpet Judgments? Before the throne of God. Where do the seven Bowl Judgments come forth from? The heavenly Temple where God dwells. In each case, every one of the 21 Tribulation judgments come from God Himself, and therefore all of the Tribulation is God’s wrath, not just the last 3.5 years.

      The Church is never destined to endure God’s judgment on the world (1 Thes. 1:10; 5:9; Rom. 5:9; Eph. 5:6; Col. 3:4; Rev. 3:10). And, the Bible also gives us a lot of clues that the Rapture will occur before the Tribulation (Isa. 26:19-21; Mal. 3:17; Lk. 21:36; Jn. 14:1-14; I Cor. 15:51-58).

      The whole Mid-Tribulation Rapture view pivots on 1 Corinthians 15:51-52 which says the Rapture will occur at the blowing of the “last trumpet.” They then point to Revelation 11:15 where the seventh and last trumpet of the trumpet judgments is blown. Since this seventh trumpet appears to be blown in the middle of the Tribulation, after the Antichrist kills the two witnesses, the argument is that this must mark the time of the Rapture.

      There are several problems with this argument. In the first place, there is nothing in the Bible that identifies the seventh trumpet of the trumpet judgments in Revelation as the “last trumpet” of 1 Corinthians 15. The assumption that the two are the same is just that — an assumption. It is a shaky assumption because the trumpets of Revelation are announcing judgments that are aimed at unbelievers. They don’t have any relationship to believers.

      Now, there is a trumpet that the “last trumpet” of 1 Corinthians 15:32 can be identified with. It is the “trumpet of God” which 1 Thessalonians 4:16 says will be blown when the Rapture occurs. With that in mind, consider the fact that the last trumpet of the trumpet judgments in Revelation 11:15 is not identified as the trumpet of God but as the trumpet of an angel.

      The second problem with the mid-Tribulation Rapture concept is that the seventh trumpet of Revelation 11 really doesn’t relate to the middle of the Tribulation at all. Its blowing triggers a flash-forward to the end of the Tribulation to the proclamation that “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ, and He will reign forever and ever” (Revelation 11:15).

      Another thing to consider is that 1 Corinthians 15 was written about 45 years before the book of Revelation. Thus, it seems logical that the reference to a “last trumpet” must refer to something in the Old Testament that the Corinthian church would have been familiar with. That would most likely have been the trumpet referred to by both Joel and Zephaniah — the trumpet that will be blown before the Day of the Lord’s judgment (the Tribulation — see Joel 2:1 and Zephaniah 1:16).

      I think the trumpet heard at the Rapture the Bible is referring to the last of the Feast of Trumpets during the Church Age, the feast God has most likely appointed to express the Rapture (see for more details).
