First aired on GeorgeAnn Hughes' ByteShow Podcast in 2009 (approximately), Pastor Doug Riggs challenges the common belief that the rapture of the church can happen at any time. This bible study takes us throughout the Old and New Testaments to explain the conditions necessary for the return of Jesus Christ for the church prior to Daniel's 70th Week, the Day of the Lord we know as the tribulation. Doug gives us a lesson in Koine Greek on the simple word 'until' and its usage as an indefinite temporal clause in scripture. This is the Playlist of 9 interviews given (as they become available), edited and condensed with video assist so we are able to learn with both our ear-gates and eye-gates.
