Isaiah 66:15-16See, the Lord is coming with fire,
and his chariots are like a whirlwind;
he will bring down his anger with fury,
and his rebuke with flames of fire.
For with fire and with his sword
the Lord will execute judgment on all people,
and many will be those slain by the Lord.
So you see the coming of the Lord on chariots is already prophesied in Isaiah. So when John quotes this in Revelation, he was saying this would be fulfilled in his lifetime.
It is speaking about judgment.
It is not speaking about being caught up in the air.
The Lord thunders
at the head of his army;
his forces are beyond number,
and mighty is the army that obeys his command.
The day of the Lord is great;
it is dreadful.
Who can endure it?
Notice it is about an army “led” by the Lord.
Before them the earth shakes,
the heavens tremble,
the sun and moon are darkened,
and the stars no longer shine.
You will also see that the heavens tremble, sun and moon darkened when this army of judgment comes. Notice this verse therefore is not talking about cosmic events but the coming of the said army.
Jesus said this.
“When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near.
Let me share with you the following historical statement after the temple was destroyed in Jerusalem in AD70.
“The Romans planted their eagles on the shapeless ruins, over against the eastern gate, offered their sacrifices to them, and proclaimed Titus Imperator with the greatest acclamations of joy. Thus was fulfilled the prophecy concerning the abomination of desolation standing in the holy place.”
Remember what I said about the Lord thunders at the head of the army?
“Even the heathen Titus is reported to have publicly declared that God, by a special providence, aided the Romans and drove the Jews from their impregnable strongholds.”
So you see that was how it happened. How the Lord came in chariots.
You would probably think this is again ludicrous teaching by me.
Let me reveal my source to you. It’s not from a pagan website. It’s from here.
And yet people say we are ignorant, confused and heretical.
