Pat Benedetto, editor, author and thirty-five year Bible prophecy student examines “what on earth is going on” in her new two-part book, Surviving the Tribulation that asks, “Are you equipped for the End-Times?” There she explores the number of record-setting worldwide disasters and their “increasing frequency and severity” she likens to birth pangs described in the book of Revelation.
Ezekiel 33: 3-6 prompted her to write the book. “If the watchman sees the enemy coming and doesn’t sound the alarm…the people will die in their sins…” However, God says “He will hold the watchman responsible.” Pat considers herself a watchman and penned Surviving the Tribulation as a warning for those who will listen.
She begins with a simple overview that includes the mystery of the Trinity, “God’s master plan,” the “age of Grace,” a summary of the seven year Tribulation and “Christ’s Second Coming.” Because God is loving, patient and longsuffering, she writes, he always warns before judgment. “For the Lord does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets,” according to Amos 3:7 ESV. This segment includes Pat’s background and personal testimony.
I found chapter three, “Signs of the Times” the most convincing because it affirms John 14:29. “And now I have told you before it takes place, so when it does take place you may believe.” This chapter’s examples reveal an increase in spiritual deception, appearances of false Christ’s, signs of apostasy, the resurgence of Polio, Tuberculosis and other pestilence. Plus famine, Satanism, the occult, Christian persecution, wars and rumors of wars, Bible prophecies fulfilled and Israel. All “the signs increasingly point to His Second Coming,” writes Pat and I agree with her. Add the 2014-2015 Blood Moons Tetrad, the fourth occurrence in 500 years and even skeptics have to admit the signs of our times are unusual.
The second half of the book features “Survival Strategies.” Pat includes a salvation message, scriptural affirmations and several excellent check lists of things to have on hand in case of disaster. The concise and biblical chapter on “Spiritual Warfare” is easy-to-understand and implement, as are the segments on “Practical Concerns” and “Basic Survival Strategies.”
The Bible says the time of Christ’s return, the beginning of sorrows, will be like the times of Noah, a violent time of bloodshed, selfishness and self-centeredness. The daily news testifies to that truth with their coverage of senseless violence and death.
The only thing I didn’t like about “Surviving the Tribulation” was the misleading cover that shows a scary, gas-masked face. While the mask might be necessary at some point the cover doesn’t suggest how thorough, easy-to-understand, well-written and well-researched the book published by Deep River Books really is.
“Surviving the Tribulation” offers comfort and hope because it reveals everyone has the choice to “walk in the light of Revelation” or walk in the “darkness of ignorance.” Reading the book may cause you to question if your spiritual house is in order when viewed in the light of eternity.

“Surviving the Tribulation: Are You Equipped for the End Times,” by Pat Benedetto
Now is the time to be ready. The Tribulation will not be pleasant, but a necessary test that determines each person’s eternal destiny. Surviving the Tribulation gives evidence for the authenticity of the Bible, describes the clear signs of the times, and relates the events of the Rapture and the Tribulation, including the Antichrist and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
It uniquely includes practical strategies for surviving natural and manmade disasters, as well as methods for going the distance emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually during the difficult times in which we live.
This book is for anyone who is curious about the end times or wondering what exactly is going on in the world today. Survivalists, “preppers,” news junkies, Jews and Christians of all denominations, seekers of the Truth, and those in need of encouragement will benefit from this information.

The Rapture: Christianity’s Most Preposterous Belief, by Dr. Chuck Missler—Kindle Edition
There continue to be many questions concerning the “Rapture” of the Church and its apparent contrast with the “Second Coming” of Jesus Christ. Where does this strange view come from? Is the term “rapture” even in the Bible?
Clearly, the idea of the Rapture can be considered the most preposterous belief in Biblical Christianity. The situation regarding the doctrine of the Rapture is painfully similar to the famous quote by Dr. Richard Feynman, speaking of quantum physics:
I think it is safe to say that no one understands quantum mechanics… in fact, it is often stated of all the theories proposed in this century, the silliest is quantum theory. Some say that the only thing that quantum theory has going for it, in fact, is that it is unquestionably correct.
