Dr. Todd Baker was honored to be asked to be a contributing writer for this new book compiled by Terry James.
As the world races toward its momentous end-times encounter with God, cascading fulfillment of Bible prophecy clearly points to the catching away of the saints — an event popularly known as the Rapture of the church. Specific circumstances are prophesied to occur that point to the Tribulation (last 7 years of history before Christ’s return). Most all of these signs are already in view. Therefore the departure (Rapture), which will occur before that 7 years of God’s wrath, must be near indeed. Those signals include:
- The emergence of a new global order and global government;
- Technological developments making possible the Mark of the Beast;
- Apocalyptic turmoil in the Middle East, pointing toward nuclear Armageddon;
- Global fascination with occult, demonic, and otherworldly manifestations;
- Departure from the faith, giving space to false doctrines;
- Worldwide violence, upheaval, like it was in the days of Noah.
In The Departure: God’s Next Catastrophic Intervention into Earth’s History, leading national and international researchers, scholars, authors, and speakers share their specialized knowledge about what you can expect in the coming days, and, more importantly, what you can do to be prepared for the Rapture of the church!
