If Christianity is new to you or you have not studied end-time events, the term “Tribulation” is used to describe a 7-year period that will be very difficult for the entire world. It will include every type of turmoil that you can imagine. There will be earthquakes, famines, disease, wars, and economic disruptions. The Great Harvest Hijack is the result of a very comprehensive Bible study designed to answer the question that has been debated by Christians for many decades: Will Jesus return for His followers before, during or after the Tribulation?

In The Great Harvest Hijack, you will see the results of an exhaustive exploration of Scripture that rightly divides the Word of God through the cross-referencing of many Bible passages. This methodology of study allows the Bible to prove itself by comparing and then scrutinizing the many verses that speak about the different aspects of the Tribulation and Jesus’ return for His Church. This book shows that the popularity of the pre-tribulation rapture theory among theologians has successfully masked the incontrovertible evidence that proves the post-tribulation return of Jesus. Hence, the book title: The Great Harvest Hijack.

The analytical process used to uncover the Scriptural commonalities and true meaning of each verse allows you to connect the dots and see the links that complete the Biblical picture of end-time events. As a result, you will be able to more accurately interpret God’s Word so you can see for yourself when Jesus will return for believers.

Even though no one can determine the date of Jesus’ return right now, you will quickly see that the Bible actually reveals precisely what signs and events will appear just before Jesus comes. You will learn how to recognize these signs and events so that His soon return will become obvious to you as you watch for their appearance. Once certain events occur, one being the revealing of the Antichrist at the mid-point of the Tribulation, it will become evident that the return of Jesus for His Church is not far away.

Below is a small sample of the evidence that you will see in The Great Harvest Hijack.

The Old Testament prophet Daniel tells us that in the middle of a 7-year period known as the Tribulation, temple sacrifices will be forced to end. At this time the Antichrist will place an image of himself in the temple and will declare that he is God. Daniel calls this the abomination that causes desolation and it will also be when the Antichrist’s identity will be revealed.

Daniel 9:27 NIV 

He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven’. In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation…

In the next passage, Daniel also says that after this abomination that causes desolation and the time of distress that follows, those whose names are written in the "book" will be raised from the grave to everlasting life. The book that Daniel speaks about is the book of life that is written about many times in the Book of Revelation. This book of life has within it the names of everyone who will receive eternal life. Therefore, Daniel 12:1-2 is saying that the resurrection for all dead believers will occur after the 7-year Tribulation (time of distress) that is recorded in the Book of Revelation. 

Daniel 11:31 and 12:1-2 NIV 

“His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice. Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation. “At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered. Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life

The Apostle Paul tells us that those who are alive when Jesus returns will, along with the dead that are spoken of in the previous passage, join Him in the air to receive eternal life.

1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 NIV

...we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

Therefore, we can now see that after the mid-point of the Tribulation when the Antichrist is revealed, a time of distress will occur that will be greater than any before. Then Jesus will return to raise the dead and gather the living in the air to give them their everlasting life. Of course, this "time of distress" that Daniel speaks about is the same period that Jesus called great tribulation in Matthew 24. This means that Daniel, Jesus, and the Apostle Paul all say that Jesus will return for both dead and living believers after the Tribulation that is written about in the Book of Revelation.

This and much much more is presented in The Great Harvest Hijack through a very simple and easy-to-understand analysis. This book is written so that even those who have not studied the Bible can understand it yet it is filled with enough Scriptural evidence and unquestionable facts to captivate the most avid students of Bible prophecy.

In the process of uncovering absolute evidence in favor of a post-tribulation Harvest, this book also brings to light many unresolvable flaws in the pre-tribulation rapture theory.

For instance, the pre-tribulation rapture theory would have you believe that Matthew 24:1-31 is about Jesus coming to earth with believers to Armageddon at the end of the Tribulation. However, this passage actually says that when Jesus comes in the clouds then the angels gather the elect from earth. In other words, Matthew 24 says this gathering of believers is for the believers' Harvest, not to the Battle of Armageddon as the pre-tribulation rapture theory claims.  

They also say that their pre-tribulation rapture will come at any moment without any warning. Yet, Luke 21:25-28 says that when you see the signs in the sun, moon and stars, look up for your redemption draws near. This one verse contradicts and invalidates their claim that Jesus will return without warning.

Another point they make is that when Jesus returns for believers, it will be a secret event that will only be visible to those included in the rapture. On the contrary, Matthew 24:30 joins other verses that say everyone on earth will witness Jesus’ return for believers at the post-tribulation Harvest.

This has been just a small sampling of what you will see in the 180 pages of The Great Harvest Highjack. You may be very surprised at the many ways the Bible tells us that Jesus will return in a post-tribulation Harvest. One hundred and thirty-four pages are devoted to the Biblical evidence that points directly to a post-tribulation Harvest and uncovers multiple flaws in the pre-tribulation rapture theory.

An additional 46 pages are centered on related issues and answer questions such as:

  • Why would God allow Christians to go through the Tribulation?
  • Why is the Tribulation not God’s wrath?
  • Is Jesus truly the Messiah who will one day return for believers to fulfill His promise of eternal life?
  • How can you know for sure that you are saved?
  • How can you prepare for the Tribulation?

This book explains the post-tribulation Harvest in a simple yet Scripturally-supported manor. Once you finish The Great Harvest Hijack, you will have a very clear understanding of what the Bible teaches about the return of Jesus. If people will read and honestly evaluate the Biblical evidence presented in this book, they will likely wonder how the pre-tribulation rapture theory ever came into being.

Although the thought of going through the Tribulation is a bit frightening, it is easier to imagine experiencing it once you see that God will protect, guide and provide for you. Even though it will be difficult, in this book you will see that God has given many amazing promises to those who will overcome and stand strong in their faith during the Tribulation.

First God promises to help us. Then He promises to give great and unique rewards to those who overcome the testing, trials and deceptions of the Antichrist and who make it through the Tribulation with their faith intact. Understanding God’s promises will embolden you with the strength and courage you will need.

You will be amazed at the reward that Tribulation "overcomers" will receive for their endurance. In fact, it is exciting to think that we might be the generation that will recognize the signs, hear the trumpet call and actually see Jesus coming on a cloud for His Church to take us in His long-awaited Harvest. And like Esther, we will be humbled by the realization that we may have been born for “such a time as this.”

Like the author of this book, you may be thinking that the Tribulation is fast approaching. Arm yourself with the understanding of Bible prophecy so you will recognize the signs that will appear before Jesus returns for His Church and you will be wise to the deceptions of the Antichrist.

To God Be the Glory!
