dad 031Leading biblical prophecy expert Terry James is an author, general editor, and co-author of numerous books on Bible prophecy—hundreds of thousands of which have been sold worldwide. His latest release is Rapture Ready…Or Not? 15 Reasons This Is the Generation That Will Be Left Behind, is for this generation of readers who are confused and look upon a world that seems to have destroyed opportunity for a bright, abundant future. The Rapture is about to catastrophically strike an unsuspecting world of both unbelievers and believers. Jesus Christ is the shelter from the coming Tribulation storm of God’s wrath and judgment.

Other recent titles James has released include Cauldron: Supernatural Implications of the current Middle East, a look through a Biblical lens at the prophetic hour for providing understanding of where the Mid-East region and world stands as the catalyst for producing Armageddon.  The nonfiction, HeavenVision: Glimpses into Glory, is a look at what the Bible says about Heaven through the lens of James’ recent near-death experience when his heart stopped beating three times on Good Friday of 2011 (Icon, 2013). Departure: God’s Next Catastrophic Intervention into Earth’s History (Defender, 2010), an exciting collaboration with  leading prophecy experts and Bible scholars who join James in sharing their insight and analysis of biblical prophecy as it aligns with world events leading up to the Rapture of the church. In addition, he has written The American Apocalypse: Is the United States in Bible Prophecy? and Are You Rapture Ready? (foreword by Tim LaHaye), as well as the novels The Nephilim Imperatives: Dark Sentences and The Rapture Dialogues: Dark Dimension (foreword by Tim LaHaye)–among many others.

A frequent lecturer on the study of end-time phenomena, James is interviewed often by national and international media on world issues and events as they relate to Bible prophecy. He has appeared in major documentaries and media forums in all media formats in America, Europe, and Asia. He has appeared as an expert source in a History Channel series entitled “The Nostradamus Effect.”

An active member of the Pre-Trib Research Center Study Group, James is also partner and general editor in http://www.raptureready.com, which is the attraction of national and international media and was recently rated as the number-one Bible prophecy site on the Internet.

James, who has been blind much of his adult life due to a degenerative retinal disease, works from his home in Benton, Arkansas. He and his wife, Margaret, have two grown sons, Terry, Jr., and Nathan—and too many cats to count.

    Excellent news for us Bible prophecy nuts. Thrilled to have an outlet for our thoughts and opinions and who better to lead us than Terry? As this age comes to a close, it is a blessing for believers to share their stories and experiences. Look forward to some thought-provoking comments!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you………. For all you do!!! I’ve been a RR follower for years, looking forward to this addition!

    Hi Terry!

    Congratulations on the start of your new blog! I’ve been looking forward to it and it certainly is well-timed as we see Bible prophecy unfolding before our very eyes. There is a real need to get the word out since the secular world and, paradoxically, even organized religion for the most part can’t seem to see or understand the signs of these times. Jesus once said as much to the religious authorities of his age and isn’t it sad to see how very little we’ve changed in 2000 years?

    God bless you on this new enterprise!

    Terry,
    Surprised to find this on raptureready daily news rather than a weekly commentary from you (which I eagerly look forward to every Monday morning.
    This really did explain why I heard our Church Pastor teach/preach as he did yesterday, touching on the subject of abortion, same-sex marriage. I must admit, I sometimes find myself struggling not to become confused these days on the pre-tribulation rapture position which I have strongly held to and believed ever since my conversion and salvation in Jesus. It was alarming when I found myself confronted with the truth that the Pastor of the Church we were members of presented his view of the Rapture, and criticized Dr. David Jeremiah, along with the Scofield Bible. We did change our Church membership, and are now in a solid Church with a Pastor who stands strong on teaching/preaching from the Scriptures.
    Thank you for your Ministry and work, and for being so kind to answer my questions and point me to important links to find more information. I have marked your new web site as a ‘favorite’!

    Hello Terry! My name is James Terry! I have seen you speak on Lamb & Lion Ministries and other shows. Thank you for your teaching.

    Dear Terry – Your article on Storm Shelters (4/16) is very good with exception to this: you wrote, “Many new believers who were left behind when the Rapture happened —-” I totally disagree with. NO believers will be left behind when the Rapture happens. ALL believers at the time of Rapture will be raptured.

    • Terry James says:

      I agree that ALL believers at the time of the Rapture will be raptured. The “new believers” I am discussing are those who come to believe AFTER the rapture of the church and during the tribulation. They were not believers at the time of the Rapture so were left behind.

      • Jim says:

        Let’s clarify. Those that heard and rejected the gospel before the Rapture have no second chance. It’s too late. There are sent a strong delusion and believe a lie. Only those who have not heard the gospel will be saved after the Rapture.

  10. Todd Church says:

    Hi Terry: I’ve greatly enjoyed reading your blog and you and I share something very important in common. I would like to email you about it; could you please send me your email address? Thanks and God BLess; keep up the good work for the Lord!

  11. Rod Chaffey says:

    Hi Terry, I couldn’t find anywhere else to your most recent article in the Rapture Ready website so I hope you’ll forgive me if I use this path.

    The whole Brexit thing left me wondering a little bit as well, mainly in relation to what bearing this might have on the prophetic time line.

    I felt in my heart that this was somehow portentous, but couldn’t quite put my finger on it until I remembered somewhere in the bible (I thought it might have been in the Book of Revelation) reading about “3 nations being overcome”.

    It turned out to be in the book of Daniel, chapter 7, where Daniel is describing 4 beasts, representing 4 world empires. When the last beast is described, we’re told it has 10 horns (10 nations) and a little final horn coming up “in their midst”, thought by good biblical scholars to be the anti-Christ. Verse 8 then goes on to say that 3 of the ten horns were “uprooted”, perhaps indicating that anti-Christ was not involved in their removal, after which things happen big-time. Whether this has already occurred at sometime past in the current church age is not certain, but I’m sure this very recent event is very important.

    OK, those of us who keep a prophetic eye on events realize that there are 10 founding member nations of the EU, with a further 18 others who are not the original signatories, so maybe we should ignore those for our purposes and just concentrate on the 10.

    GB voted out and I understand that other nations are now seriously considering an EU exit. If just 2 of the founding others finally decide to leave, making 3 all told, then what we have witnessed last weekend may have been hugely prophetically important. Imagine the future reverberations in not just Europe, but around the world when and if 2 other nations (horns) leave the Union. Even the GB exit had a huge worldwide destabilisation on international stock markets. It would be the sort of chaotic situation world wide that would make it just the time for the appearance on the world scene for a “saviour”, albeit a false one. Do you have any thoughts about this.

    Look up brother. Our redemption draws near.

  12. Rod Chaffey says:

    Thanks again and I really agree with you that what has just occurred in the EU is definitely not a “setback”. All that’s missing is a “leader of fierce countenance speaking great blasphemies”.

  13. And one wonders if Walid Shoebat may not have some things worthy of considering, regarding the recent events in Turkey.

    http://shoebat.com/2016/07/16/erdogan-enters-istanbul-as-triumphant-sultan-proving-so-far-he-is-still-the-best-candidate-for-being-the-antichrist-this-is-it-saints-embrace-yourselves-keeping-vigilant-with-oil-in-your-lamps-we/

    We don’t look FOR the Antichrist, but we are to watch and pray that we may be accounted worthy to escape ALL that is so soon coming upon the earth. This past Sunday a.m., before reading what all has been taking place in Turkey, I had the third “rapture ready” first-morning-wakening thoughts. I had a sense the “third” was significant. The thought I awoke with was that Jesus was going to shout something as He broke through the heavens to catch us up. And my being able to hear that voice of command to “Come up HITHER,” and respond in faith that is like the ray of sun flashing upon the iris of an eye was conditional to my responding to all that I was “hearing” now. I am to be sensitive to the least sin. I am to be immediate to ask for as much grace as was given me IN CHRIST JESUS before the world began, to keep my robes ready. Ready in way of confession, works meet for repentance, and witnessing, sharing the blessed hope given to me TO SHARE. I knew that for certain, he or she that has an ear to hear what the Spirit is saying to the church is now being awakened to REPENT — FOR THE KING IS COMING — the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND! I knew that there was yet time for me to get the things I needed to do DONE. But I could no longer procrastinate and I absolutely HAD to trust God’s Spirit to catch every thought of temptation to murmur or complain against doing His will. For if I KNEW to do His will, yet I murmured against it, I would not be accounted worthy to escape. This is not WORKS salvation — this is what it is — being accounted worthy to be among the FEW who are chosen because they’ve been awakened, have their lamps burning brightly and are making themselves ready for their Lord. Not every one who names the name of Christ, who says they are a Christian, will be taken up to meet the Lord in the air. Only those who are departing from all lawlessness, all iniquity, all that the Spirit sheds light upon us individually — these are preparing themselves and shall be ready.

    God, give each of us grace to be among that small number, to be numbered among the few who are being taught to number their days and apply their hearts towards wisdom. Two acrostic words have been much voice here in Virginia lately: DATWCOM and RITLAAA! Do All Things Without Complaining Or Murmuring — Rejoice In The Lord Always and Again!

    Hi Terry. I am new to your website. I have been reading your book: Rapture Ready…..Or Not with great interest. I believe that what you have written is accurate. My father, a missionary to Brazil from the 1930’s to the 1960’s, taught the same things you write about to the Brazilians he pastored. I grew up with a great love for Bible prophecy because of his faithfulness. In fact, he was asked to return to Brazil after he retired to hold conferences on Bible prophecy for several weeks before he went Home to be with the Lord. I have purchased your book for others in my church to read, and recommend it every chance I get. (That is no exaggeration)

    I just purchased your book on pets going to Heaven and am looking forward to reading it because several days ago I was thinking about something along the same lines. Not specifically about pets, but animals in the Garden of Eden before the fall and in the New Earth and New Heavens. I would like your take on the following. It struck me while rereading Genesis that Eve was not shocked to have a serpent talk to her. Could it be the before the Fall, Adam and Eve were able to understand and talk to the animals that lived in the Garden? If so, it would seem logical to me that we will be able to do the same when we get to Heaven. I look forward to your input.

  15. New Fictional Prophecy Book
    I have just written a fictional novel on the end times: “Perilous Times Shall Come.” Would you possibly have any time to read my book if I attached a copy of it in a PDF file? It is 212 pages. I believe the UFO phenomenon may be Satan’s greatest deception, and I attempt to show how this fits in with Bible prophecy. It is partly as seen through the eyes of someone that gets saved after the Rapture and goes through the Tribulation Period. I’m trying to find some people to critique this and give me some feedback.

    WestBow Publishing, a division of Zondervan and Thomas Nelson has been talking with me about them publishing it, and also Xulon Press, plus a couple others. I am a Creation Evangelist and in the last 19 years I have given over 450 seminars in 27 different states. I have also given about a dozen 5-Session Prophecy Conferences. I have been studying prophecy for over 40 years. I am kind of excited about the book. I have three other books published: a Commentary on Genesis Chapter One, a book on the Calvinism-Arminianism issue (Tiptoe Through the T-U-L-I-Ps, but try to keep your balance), and also: Refuting Evolution Made Easy. I would be honored if you would consider reading it and giving me some feedback, and a possible endorsement. Thank you.

  16. Lorna McLaughlin says:

    Terry,
    I was thinking about prophesy and the current situation and in particular 1 Thess 5:2-3 for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

    it occurred to me this could very well be the worldwide response to having the world be rid of the Christians after the rapture…
    I know it’s all speculation, but do you have any thoughts on this?

    Lorna

    • Terry James says:

      Jesus, Himself, said that the time will be like it was in the time of Lot in Sodom when He next catastrophically intervenes into the affairs of mankind. He said that the very day Lot went out of Sodom Judgment fell. So, the Rapture will definitely be followed by God’s Judgment.

      There are two basic schools of thought on the question what is meant by the cry “peace and safety.”
      1) It means people will be fearful and wanting peace and safety to quell their fears.
      2) People will be saying that they now have peace and safety.

      My own thought it is likely the first of these –thus we see the constant call for peace in the Middle East.

  17. Lorna McLaughlin says:

    I think you are probably right…since the destruction is described as being like labor pains…you certainly know when you can expect them to probably come and you know you are pregnant…no surprise…in that context they are expecting destruction and asking for peace and safety…

    Thanks!
    Lorna

    Would love this on an audio version. Any available?

  19. LOUIE BAILEY says:

    Is there a way to contribute to your ministry?

  20. Johnny Ash says:

    Terry, what does the 14 signs in the Sun, Moon, and Stars in June of 2017 refer to? Since you are into prophecy and convergence is the Number one sign, so what does the 14 Signs in the Sun, Moon , and Stars in June refer to especially the 4 over Pentecost week? Did you know Terry that there are over 40 signs in the Sun, Moon and Stars in the year 5777/5778 which began January 1. It is very interesting that the biblical Pentecost is on a Friday/Saturday and refers to the Man of God/Son of Man themes in the Bible> I find that really interesting.

  21. Keep up the good work Terry. God will surely reward you for your faithful services. God bless.
