Does anyone realize how timely Joe Ortiz' book "The End Times Passover" really is? Who on earth hasn't heard of the religious term "rapture"? This word is shorthand for the much longer theological term "pre-tribulation rapture," a strange, 19th century British import which for many years now has taken over, and become the darling of, American evangelicalism. So what is the "rapture"? It is a secret coming of Christ to the earth's atmosphere, at which time all true Christians will literally and physically be lifted off the planet to meet Christ up in the air somewhere. Although everyone has heard of the term "second coming," the secret rapture is actually a prior coming of Christ that is supposed to occur several years before the second coming. Since its birth in Britain in 1830, the incentive for believing in this "pre-tribulation" rapture (or coming of Christ) is that it gives adherents a "hope" never heard of before the 19th century: the hope that followers of Christ will not have to be on earth during its last few horrible years spoken of in the Bible as the "great tribulation" (or the reign of the Antichrist). So how did Joe Ortiz, who personally believed in this secret rapture at one time, come to believe just the opposite (the historic, pre-1830 view that Chrstians will remain on earth during Antichrist's reign)? His book "The End Times Passover" reveals the answer. After studying the original Greek language of the New Testament, he realized that the secret rapture idea was nowhere to be found it it. He concluded after much research that the Bible actually teaches that the Christian Church will be on earth to face the Antichrist during earth's final days and that those who promulgate the secret rapture notion really haven't done their homework but have basically repeated what they have heard others teaching. "The End Times Passover" is well researched, readable, and clearly Scriptural and should be read by all who have heard Jerry Falwell, Tim LaHaye and other preachers promoting the rapture which, as Ortiz, points out is an extra-Scriptural teaching which never should have been adopted by Americans. The Ortiz book is one that you can't lay down once you pick it up!
