Luke 21:36: Is It About The Pre-Tribulation Rapture?

This is a well done video study on Luke 21:36. It makes a very good case for the Pre-Trib Rapture.

Why the Rapture of the Church Has To Happen Before the Seven Year Tribul...

Here is the next installment of Pastor JD's series about why the Rapture has to happen before the 7 year Tribulation. This week he goes into the definition of the "last trump" and how the Trumpet Call of God is for the Church, while the trumpet call of angels is for Israel. I learned a lot this teaching. I hope you do as well.

Worthy To Escape? A Teaching That Some Believers Will Be LEFT BEHIND Bec...

Live holy or be left behind at the Rapture? What? Is that REALLY what the Bible teaches?

Anyone who teaches this is WRONG. We are saved through Christ's righteousness that He gave us at the cross, not by our own works of "holiness", which is literally impossible to do.

Otherwise, Christ died for nothing and God's Grace is in vain.


Why the Rapture of the Church Has To Happen Before the Seven Year Tribul...

Part 3 of Pastor JD's series of why the Rapture has to happen before the Tribulation. It's a long message today, over an hour, but parallel's the ancient Jewish wedding with the Wedding of the Bridegroom. When you realize Christ is very purposefully comparing our relationship to Him as His Bride, you will understand what God is doing prophetically with regards to an actual Jewish wedding ceremony for His Son.

Iran's Threats to Israel & Ezekiel 38

Iran Warns Israel of Invasion from Gary Stearman on Vimeo.

This is an eye-opening report from Gary Stearman's Prophecy in the News program about where the Middle East is in relation to prophecy, specifically the prophecy in Ezekiel 38.  This is the prophecy where Gog/Magog comes against Israel in the end of days, along with Persia (Iran).  Things are heating up and we can no longer ignore this.  Is the Day of the Lord almost upon us?

Palestinians Set Date for Statehood Showdown at UN

September 20th is the day the UN will vote if Palestine becomes a state.

When Christ gave His parable about the fig tree in Matthew 24 and Luke 21, He was speaking of Israel.  Israel is often seen as a "fig tree" throughout Scripture.  Christ mentioned in Matthew 24:32-33:

“Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near.  Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door."

This parable is talking about the rebirth of Israel as a nation.  They were scattered in 70 AD after the Romans leveled their second temple and only became a nation again just recently, in 1948.

Therefore, when Israel begins "sprouting" again -- meaning, becoming a prosperous nation, you know the end is near, even at the doors.

What's interesting about this parable is the fact that Jesus never mentions the "pruning" of the fig tree as a sign to watch for His Coming.  And God's land (Israel, the fig tree) is about to get pruned to make way for Palestine.

Could we be taken out beforehand?  I don't know, but you cannot deny it will be interesting to see how everything goes down in the next 5 weeks...

Just a Little Fun...

Live as if you expect the Rapture every single day!  :D

A Study in Thessalonians - Prophecy in the News

The Rapture Conspiracy from Gary Stearman on Vimeo.

This program goes into the meaning behind the original Greek text Paul wrote in Thessalonians. Does "apostasia" mean "falling away" or "departure"?

It matters because it vastly changes the meaning of the text.

Give this video a watch, even if you already know the dual meaning of "apostasia". Very informative about the last days and birth pangs in general.

Why the Rapture of the Church Has To Happen Before the Seven Year Tribul...

This is Pastor JD's Sunday sermon so it's a few days old, but I decided to share it because I haven't been doing too many updates recently. Not that there haven't been things happening around the world. Hello, world economy!!! Hello, London riots!! I've been rather overwhelmed as of late to update on those things, but please note that the birth pangs are getting stronger and closer together.

If Turkey or Syria decide to attack one another, there will be a huge war in the Middle East, which will probably devolve into a world war. Famine and drought are prevalent on just about the entire continent of Africa. The heatwave in America continues. The stock markets in several countries are crashing. Volcanoes all over the world are lighting up. There's just about a 6.0 or greater earthquake somewhere in the world every single day.

Messiah is coming. Trim your lamps and make sure you have oil.

Israel Willing to Negotiate on Borders

Israel is willing to negotiate on borders in dramatic policy change:

JERUSALEM — In a dramatic policy shift, Israel's prime minister has agreed to negotiate the borders of a Palestinian state based on the cease-fire line that marks off the West Bank, a TV station reported Monday.

Up to now, Benjamin Netanyahu has refused to spell out his plan for negotiating the border. A senior Israeli official would not confirm outright that the prime minister was now willing to adopt the cease-fire line as a starting point, but said Israel was willing to try new formulas to restart peace talks based on a proposal made by President Barack Obama.

In a speech about the Middle East in May, Obama proposed negotiations based on the pre-1967 line with agreed swaps of territory between Israel and a Palestinian state. Netanyahu reacted angrily, insisting that Israel would not withdraw from all of the West Bank, though that was not what Obama proposed.

Now Netanyahu is basically accepting that framework, according to Channel 2 TV, offering to trade Israeli territory on its side of the line for West Bank land where its main settlements are located.

The official, who has been briefed on the talks, spoke on condition of anonymity because the contacts are still in progress. He said he would not deny the TV report, while refusing to confirm the specifics.

"We are willing in a framework of restarting the peace talks to accept a proposal that would contain elements that would be difficult for Israel and we would find very difficult to endorse," he said, answering a question about the Obama proposal.

Part of the reason, he said, was that Israel is seeking to persuade the Palestinians to drop their initiative to win U.N. recognition of their state next month, something the Palestinians are doing out of frustration with stalled peace efforts.

Palestinian officials said they had not received such a proposal from Israel.

Palestinians have demanded that Israel stop construction in its West Bank settlements and east Jerusalem before peace talks resume. Netanyahu wants talks with no preconditions where issues like settlements and borders would be discussed, along with his insistence that the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

Benjamin Netanyahu Israel Borders

The cease-fire line that marks the West Bank dates to the 1949 end of the two-year war that followed the creation of Israel. It held until June 1967, when Israel captured the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem, claimed by the Palestinians.

Palestinians and most of the world consider the 1967 lines a border, while Israel has always held that it was just a temporary truce line that does not dictate the location of the border.

Previous Israeli governments have accepted the cease-fire line as the basis for talks, and the two sides came close to agreement twice in the past decade before talks broke down over other matters.

Thorny issues like sharing Jerusalem and the fate of Palestinian refugees would remain after the border issue is resolved, but U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has said that setting a border would defuse the explosive settlement issue by determining which of the enclaves would become part of Israel and which would not.

In the absence of an agreement to return to negotiations, the Palestinians are moving ahead with their U.N. recognition initiative. While a vote in the General Assembly would be symbolic and not legally binding, the Palestinians believe any international endorsement will isolate Israel and improve their position if negotiations resume.

Palestinian officials said Monday they plan to begin mass marches against Israel's occupation of the West Bank on Sept. 20, the eve of the U.N. vote.

Palestinian official Yasser Abed Rabbo said leaders hope to attract millions, and the protest will be the first of a prolonged effort. He said the campaign would be called "Palestine 194," since the Palestinians hope to become the 194th member of the United Nations.

"The appeal to the U.N. is a battle for all Palestinians, and in order to succeed, it needs millions to pour into streets," he said.

Wow.  I never thought I'd live to see the day.  The birth pangs are going to get harder and stronger now.  They already have.  Famine and drought is spreading like wildfire all over Africa and the earth is experiencing a 6.0 or greater earthquake every single day.

Our Lord is coming.  There's no denying it now.
