Terry James is a frequent lecturer on the study of end-time phenomena and is interviewed often by national and international media, an active member of the Pre-Trib Research Center Study Group, and a partner and general editor in http://www.raptureready.com.
James, who has been blind much of his adult life due to a degenerative retinal disease, works from his home in Benton, Arkansas.
He said: “We call Christ’s return at Armageddon the Second Advent. He came in the First Advent as a baby in Bethlehem. He comes the second time as the King of all Kings and Lord of all Lords.
The first phase of that Second Advent will be the Rapture of all born-again believers – that is all who believe in Christ, based on Romans 10:9-10.
Jesus will shout “Come up here!” (Revelation 4:1). Paul the apostle prophesied that then we who are alive and remain will be changed in a millisecond into immortal bodies suited for eternal existence. We will live forever with our Savior and Lord.
Those who have died in Christ (saved) will go into Christ’s presence at that shout, even preceding those alive at the time Christ calls. They, too, will have immortal bodies and will live with Him forever.”
