The subject of the Rapture is an important topic among professing Christians and has recently gained interest from the general public, as another Rapture prediction date came and went via Calvinist Harold Camping. In fact, the second part of that same Camping false prophecy will occur in October 2011! False prophecy has been happening for quite some time as various public figures predict and announce the date of the Rapture based on their faulty understanding of Biblical passages.
Details of the Rapture (from when it will happen to whether it will occur in one or two events) vary greatly among professing Christians, according to various popular teachers.
Dan Corner discusses the clear timing of the Rapture, the anti-Christ, the mark of the beast, pre tribulation, post tribulation, and much more. To read more about the Rapture from Dan Corner, please visit http://www.evangelicaloutreach.org/are-you-ready-for-the-rapture.htm.
The parable of the Prodigal Son that is found in the Gospel of Luke has been retold in literature, music, art, and on the stage. The basic storyline of the Prodigal Son acts as a morality tale. The story itself is about the younger of two sons who asks for his share of his inheritance before his father’s death. The younger son squanders away all his money in a distant country and is forced to take a lowly, embarrassing job just to survive. When his job is failing to provide for his basic needs, the son has a realization that his father’s workers have much more than he and if he returns, he can beg his father for forgiveness and ask for work. When the son returns, he is welcomed immediately by the father and they celebrate because he got saved again (Lk 15:24).
