Hello and Welcome! Most of the articles at this site
were created in response
to questions, comments, or arguments put forth by people who challenge
the pre tribulation rapture.
James 3:1 Let not many of you become teachers, my brethren, for you know that we who teach shall be judged with greater strictness. (RSV)
In 1997, I realized that it was not my job to "choose the right
Christian religion", but rather, I realized that it was my job to read
the Bible for myself, and to learn what God wants and expects me to
Within 6 months, I learned that most Chrisitans believed that the
mark of the beast prophecy will take place during a time called, "the
seven year tribulation", specifically taking place in the latter
half. Then, I learned that some Chrisitans believed that the
rapture will take place before that tribulation, and some believed the
rapture would happen at other times.
At first, I did not know whether or
not there was such a thing as the rapture at all, when
started my studies (and this website) with
of the Beast (666) [likely to be a biochip implant!] linking
over 100 other webpages. Eventually, I learned about about the
tribulation rapture, and I began to quote a few scriptures on that--not
even really holding any position myself, just listing a few rapture
scriptures By listing the scriptures only, without
helped me to get a feel for what the Bible alone teaches.
1/20th of the visitors to my "mark of the beast" website found the
page, 1/2 of the incoming email attacked the pre tribulation rapture,
some rather unscriptural arguments. Many said "I'd better be sure
I'm not misleading people." So I studied more and listed more
on the rapture. I believe if scripture doesn't say it, then
should I. Eventually, the focus of this website changed from the
mark of the beast, to the rapture.
By 2003, my rapture studies were about over, and I began to wonder
what I would do with this Bible knowledge. I began to consider
the practical applications of putting this knowldge to use in my
life. And I started investing, and I created anothere website,
goldismoney.com, now silverstockreport.com.
There are a number of large, ongoing studies at this webpage. There is far too much here to read in one sitting, about 2 megs so far, so please bookmark the site. Since the end of April 2001, I have discovered that most of my visitors are returning from bookmarks. Four people have returned to this website over 100 times in less than a month. Just about 50 people have viewed the main page between 50 and 99 times in less than a month. For you regular visitors, please email me more often.
Also, I plan on creating a new webpage, a listing of all the reasons the rapture is "pretribulation." My guess at this time is that I can list just over 100 reasons, each backed by a single scripture or more, but we'll see. People like lists and summaries, so that will be a good task to tackle.
I am not affiliated with any religous organization. No King but Jesus! You, the readers, who email me scripture, keep me on my toes and accountable. [Prov 27:17] "Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend." Not only does the incoming email, both pro and con, help to provide motivation, but also ideas for content because it shows me what people are concerned about. So feel free to email me anything!
As emails help, so does prayer, and Bible Study, as the Holy Spirit is the one who teaches us all things [1 John 2]. --Jason Hommel
(In case you were wondering about the spelling of propheSy vs. propheCy. When I created the url for this page, I was unaware of any significant difference. I just knew it was spelled both ways. Commonly, prophecy is the noun, and prophesy is the verb. However, prophesy is also just a variant spelling of prophecy, which is the more common spelling, so prophesy with an "s", although the uncommon spelling, can be used as both the noun and verb. Since propheSy can be used both ways, I stuck with propheSy. Later, I learned I chose the less common spelling varition.)
A few enterprising people who love to poke fun at prophecy minded people have found my mistake of false prophecy and/or apology facinating enough for a link and/or review. Although these people are scoffers, they are a reminder to keep me humble, and remind me to not make the same mistake of date setting again.

The last piece of advice the Lord Jesus Christ gave to the lukewarm Loadician Church before the rapture was:
[Rev 3:18] I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
I agree that there is a profund spiritural truth there; to seek the
Holy Spirit and the Blood of Christ above all things, but I can't help
but realize the literal truth to the statement as well.
