The Rapture And Beyond

Studies in Biblical Eschatology
Author: Whitcomb, John C

The Rapture and Beyond unfolds God's revealed plan for the future of the church, Israel, all mankind, and the entire universe. From the rapture of believers and their heavenly rewards, to the amazing events of the tribulation, to the coming kingdom with its temple, these studies focus on important themes of biblical prophecy, their proper interpretation, and their relevance to Christians today.

For over sixty years John Whitcomb has taught courses on Bible prophecy, especially in the Old Testament books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Zechariah, and Malachi. He has authored two books that deal with prophecy – Daniel (Moody Press) and Esther and the Destiny of Israel (BMH Books) – as well as three prophetic time charts and several CD and DVD albums. For thirty-eight years he served as professor of theology and Old Testament at Grace Theological Seminary. An honors graduate of Princeton University (B.A., 1948) and Grace Theological Seminary (B.D., Th.M., Th.D.), he now serves as an ordained elder in the Conservative Grace Brethren Churches International and as president of Whitcomb Ministries.

The Three Princes (Paperback)

Lifting the Veil on the Unseen World
Author: Tom Julien

The Three Princes

Throughout history, three princes have exercised authority over the earth. The rule of the first, Adam, was pitifully short. His authority was stolen by Satan, the second prince, who brought unspeakable suffering to mankind. This began the supreme drama of all time, the drama of redemption.

It is a drama that finds its climax in Satan’s defeat and the triumph of the third prince, Jesus Christ, who became a man in order to win back what the first man had lost. To grasp the magnitude of this drama, in which each of us is playing a significant role, we must lift the veil of the visible and peer into the mysteries of the unseen world.

Read these pages as you would read a drama. Plunge your mind deeply into God’s revelation of His great plan; you will gain new insights into truths that may have become commonplace for you. May you begin each new day by reaffirming your authority in Christ, seated in Him at the right hand of God. And may you go into your world clothed with His armor, filled with His power, armed with the sword of His Spirit, and permeating your life with prayer.

Julien, Tom

Tom Julien served as a ground-breaking missionary and leader in France from 1958 until he was asked to return home in 1986 to become the executive director of Grace Brethren Foreign Missions (which became Grace Brethren International Missions – GBIM -- in 1995).

During his years in France, he was instrumental in the development of programming at the Chateau of Saint Albain, a medieval castle that serves as a bridge between believers and nonbelievers and giving identity to a church planting movement in southern Burgundy. The Chateau served as a base for such ministries as the Euro-Missions Institute, the Grace Theological Seminary Extension, and Editions CLE, a publishing ministry. It also became a meeting place for evangelical encounters in France, including REMOP, the yearly encounter of church-planting ministries of the Evangelical Federation of France. 

As executive director of GBIM, new ministries were inaugurated, such as The World Mission Church, The ACT Strategy, People Group Adoption, Global Opportunities, Charis International Alliance, and the Strategic Alliance for Leadership Training. Church planting ministries extended into Portugal, the Czech Republic, Turkey, Russia, Uruguay, Chile, Paraguay, Cuba, Thailand and Cambodia, in addition to the twelve countries where GBIM was already serving. 

Following his retirement, he and his late wife, Doris, served as Special Assignment missionaries to France, working with university students in Paris. He also is the international coordinator of SALT, the Strategic Alliance for Leadership Training.
