How are you feeling about these times we’re living in? Could you use some good news?
In this episode of the Positioned to Prosper podcast, I’m sharing a word I felt the Lord drop into my spirit a few weeks ago around a new season that He’s walking His Church into right now. It’s such a breath of fresh air, friend. I can’t wait to share! But to get to the fullness of the word, I’ve got to share some things with you from a few encounters I’ve had with Him over the past two years. And these things involve some talk of the “last days,” and end-times prophecy. Are you good to dig in with me on this topic?
And while we’re talking end-times, can I ask you . . . Are you a pre-tribulation or post-tribulation believer when it comes to the timing of the rapture? Have you ever thought about this for yourself? In this episode we’re going to begin to touch on this debate, and I’m planning to unpack this discussion a little more with you over the coming weeks here on the podcast. But for this week, I’m laying a bit of a scriptural foundation for our future discussion, and then releasing this word of absolute hope that the Lord gave to me to share with you. It’s going to be so good!
So are you ready to jump in? If so, I want you to grab your Bible, your journal and a pen, and . . . Let’s Go!

Scripture References Mentioned in This Episode:
Joshua 3:14-16 —
So when the people set out from their tents to pass over the Jordan with the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people, and as soon as those bearing the ark had come as far as the Jordan, and the feet of the priests bearing the ark were dipped in the brink of the water (now the Jordan overflows all its banks throughout the time of harvest), the waters coming down from above stood and rose up in a heap very far away…
1 Thessalonians 5:9 —
For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ…
2 Peter 2:4-9 —
For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment; if he did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, with seven others, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; if by turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes he condemned them to extinction, making them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; and if he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked (for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard); then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment…
Psalm 27:13-14 (NASB 1995) —
I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord.
