What will become of those who are left behind? This is a sad question, but it is eagerly asked by many…. It may readily be supposed that the taking away of loved ones at the Rapture will cause many of those left behind to seek the Lord, but as the Holy Spirit goes back with the Church, and for the time being ceases His Office Work of Regeneration, who is to convert those who are left? -from The Second Coming of Christ The Reverend Clarence Larkin was one of the most widely influential thinkers on end-times prophecies of the early twentieth century, and his writings remain vital to appreciating the apocalyptic Christian thought that today enjoys widespread popularity. This 1918 work outlines exactly what the Bible predicts for the end of mankind’s reign on Earth, and the return of the Christian savior, with a special emphasis on who is to be saved, and why. Numerous charts and illustrations depict the “Judgment Seat of Christ,” “The Stages of the Second Coming,” the “Failure of Man,” and more. Also available from Cosimo Classics: Larkin’s The Spirit World, Rightly Dividing the Word, and The Book of Revelation. American Baptist pastor and author CLARENCE LARKIN (1850-1924) was born in Pennsylvania, and later set up his ministry there. He wrote extensively and popularly on a wide range of Biblical and theological matters.
