    I am awaiting with bated breath the return of Christ. However, those who are praying for a "rapture" should not. The "rapture" doesn't take place until AFTER Armageddon.

    The Meaning of Matthew 24:40-41 and Luke 17:34-35, "Although many assume that those taken in Matt 24:40-41 and Luke 17:34-35 are taken to be with Jesus and those left behind are left for judgment, this interpretation should be rejected." Throughout the context of these passages Jesus uses judgment language reminiscent of the Babylonian destruction of Jerusalem and the subsequent exile of its inhabitants. Those who were taken away were the ones judged by God whereas those left behind were the remnant who received grace.

    Who are they, the two witnesses of Rev 11? It is true that "Elijah" appears before the day of the Lord to get the whole house of Israel straight ( Mal 4:5), but certainly not as a witness. Likewise, Moses has nothing to do with the end times, but waters turning to blood can have you thinking otherwise. When brought to light through investigation, God shows you who the two witnesses are.

    The two prophets/witnesses are described as "the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks that stand before the God of the earth". Olive trees and candlesticks have always been used to describe the house of Israel and the house of Judah. These are the 144,000 from the house of Israel, and the house of Judah, sealed from death for 42 months, at the 6th trumpet. Together, they are the whole house of Israel, witnesses to antichrists' exploits between the 6th & 7th trumpets.

    Zechariah 4

    Jer 11:16

    Psalm 52:8

    Hi Joe Bell...Why would the Most High give his only son begotten of his bosom to die for all filthy sinners? You know the Lord invited humanity into his conversation with his father in the garden of Gethsemane and we are led to understand that his Father ,Almighty God can do anything and get the results he wanted. None can overpower him with regards to his desires.Yet he chose to allow his son to lay his life down for all sinners.Only in this way the father allowed humanity an opportunity at his Love,Grace,Truth,Salvation,Merices and ultimately a place in his kingdom.There are many suggestions regarding the timing of rapture and who will go.My preparation is in obedience,repentance and holiness in waiting for the Messiah.I chose to meet him as my shepherd and not be sherphered by the anti-christ to hell.

    I'm sorry but you are mistaken. The rapture can happen any second. And the bride of christ. The body of christ. "The church". Will not suffer . But must be called up before the tribulations.

    Rev Clayton Biggs, sir, the "rapture" is satan's joke on the unwary Christian. "Rapture" is not Bible doctrine, but from the mouth of a 15 year old lost little girl, Margaret McDonald. Ask yourself, why would God allow his elect 144K to die in the street, and yet rapture every filthy Christian sinner? The sinners who are appointed one mortal death, Hebrews 9:27. Jesus was asked the same question about the 6th trumpet, where are they "taken?", Jesus said Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together. Mathew 17:34-37

    Let's cut the difference and agree that Christ is coming. Microsoft patent WO2020-060606, Google's/Microsoft's new Smart Tattoo, a "beast" who is likened to a lamb (pink wool sweaters perhaps?) that wins over the majority of humanity with his wonders and miracles (technology, weapons, vaccines) gaining power for 42-43 months (almost a 4 year term) before bringing fire from the sky down onto the earth and murdering two prophets who spoke out against him for 1200+ days in such a way that every eye one Earth can see it (YouTube, Facebook Live) Forcing people into accepting to wear items if they wish to buy or sell goods and services. It's here guys. Exciting times. My whole life has felt like training for these times. Whether I get to take up my cross, dig my heels in, and go out fighting or I get to skip ahead of the line and miss it all doesn't bother me one bit. We're still on the winning side, and we won't ever be alone in it. Playing the game is a lot less stressful when you know before hand that you can't lose. Let's not allow the enemy to use divide and conquer on us. We are saved by the same blood and serve the same Kingdom.
  • It39s Not a Game of Thrones Daniel 11 - in Reply on Revelation 11
    Philippians Chapter 2

    8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

    9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

    10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth;

    11 And [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    *******

    This is not a game of Thrones. Jesus sits at the right Hand of God, at this minute; to make intercession for ALL SAINTS.

    The true believers in Jesus (dead or alive) are the ONLY ones being caught up to Him in the Clouds.

    ANYBODY left behind will have to face a blood thirsty murderer called Antichrist who will make Hitler look like a schoolgirl. He's going to murder and decapitate 1/3 of people left on earth after the Rapture. It will be virtually impossible to eat, drink and survive for 3 1/2 years without being caught. Drones with infrared will hunt them down. Did anybody see that old movie: Red Dawn with Patrick Swayze? Envision that.

    Young people all of their lives have sat in front of media, gaming; buying the next technology that comes out as soon as it hits the stores!! Stream that old movie. Stop worshipping technology. It's not your friend.

    Creators of those games, drones, etc it will take a true miracle for any of them to be saved. Check this out: there is an (Star) or Asteroid named WORMWOOD that is aimed straight at earth & is also mentioned in the Bible! Coincidence?? Check NASA.

    Do some research.

    Now, Read Book of Daniel: 11-12, 8-10.

    It was written for people living now. Time for this vision to be explained, now. I have a sinking feeling that this election is going to set some things in motion. Do not trust the House!

    Quit giggling about pink tattoos or tutu's?

    Watching and praying can be purposed in the heart without watching worldly movies and TV programs or even paying attention to the house or senate in a particular country.
