The Seventh Trumpet explains the truth about the return of Jesus Christ. It debunks the popular notion that the Church will be raptured before the tribulation. Sadly, “the rapture” was developed by misinterpreting a handful of Bible verses, which are properly examined in this book.
Great inconsistencies in Bible interpretation are developed largely from the highly fickle and nonlinear nature of the English language. However, the Bible was not written in English, so to rightly divide the Bible properly, careful attention must be given to researching the original languages from which it was written. The Old Testament was written in Hebrew, and the New Testament was written in Greek. Both languages are straightforward and consistent in sense and meaning; thus, studying the Bible must begin and end in Hebrew and Greek.
Deviating from this method of study has caused much confusion in the churches. This is where the traditions of men have usurped the teachings of the law and the prophets. These traditions have developed from mistranslating scripture in English before transliterating it in Hebrew or Greek. This is how the early rapture of the church was conceived.
The Bible verses herein, are given in the King James Version (KJV) because it can be cross-referenced to the Strong’s Concordance which is a bridge to the original languages of Hebrew and Greek. This makes it much more useful to obtain accurate interpretation. No other combination, outside the Strong’s and the KJV, can make this claim. All other versions are solely dependent upon the inconsistent nature of the English language; and only a few of them, in part, align with the original text.
