Prophecy expert and lecturer Terry James is the general editor of RaptureReady.com, the #1 prophecy website on the Internet. Founded in 1989, the website receives more than 8 million visitors each month and has more than 4,000 active members. One of the site's main features is the Rapture Index, a constantly updating gauge that measures end-time issues and events in the news. Any event that has biblically prophetic relevance is assigned a ranking. The combined rankings serve as an end-times speedometer, signaling the speed at which the world is moving toward Armageddon. The index has been featured by Time Magazine, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, The Los Angeles Times, The Rolling Stone, The Economist, Christianity Today, CNN, the BBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, and many others. The "rapture" is an event in Christian eschatology (the study of the end times) in which it is believed that all born-again Christians will be taken from earth into heaven at a specific moment by Jesus Christ, signaling the apocalypse. Its introduction and popularization in Christian belief with books such as the Left Behind series of novels, is relatively recent. The timing of when the rapture will take place is a key point often discussed and debated between denominations and individuals who accept the belief. James is a member of the PreTrib Research Center Study Group and believes that the rapture will occur prior to the seven-year tribulation described in the book of Revelation. The study group is founded by Dr. Tim LaHaye, coauthor of the Left Behind series. In addition to James' work as the editor of Rapture Ready, he is also a prolific author of prophecy-related books including his new book, The Nephilim Imperatives (Anomalos Publishing ISBN 9780978845360 2008) and Are You Rapture Ready? (Penguin, 2004). Other works include Foreshadows of Wrath and Redemption, Forewarning, and Foreshocks of Antichrist published by Harvest House, and Earth's Final Days, Raging Into the Apocalypse, The Triumphant Return of Christ and Storming Toward Armageddon published by New Leaf. In 1993, James lost his eyesight due to a degenerative retinal disease called retinitis pigmentosa. With the aid of Jobs Accessible Word System (JAWS), a voice synthesis program, he is able to write and use the Internet. Prior to losing his eyesight, James worked in the field of marketing and public relations for more than 25 years. James earned a B.A. in advertising design with a minor in political science from University of Arkansas at Little Rock. He and his wife Margaret continue to reside near Little Rock. - Now… listen to all our XZBN shows, with our compliments go to: https://www.spreaker.com/user/xzoneradiotv *** AND NOW *** The ‘X’ Zone TV Channel on SimulTV - www.simultv.com The ‘X’ Chronicles Newspaper - www.xchroniclesnewpaper.com
