    In the day of the rapture,,what happens to woman with child,, expecting a baby..
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 24
    In my opinion, if an embryo should die or a new born baby or a child who is of the age of pre-accountability lives, then that embryo or infant would go to be with the Lord. As all humans are born with a sin nature (thanks to our first parents), that nature doesn't preclude us from Heaven. It is when we commit sin because of that nature, going against the Word & Will of God, that we are accountable to God & so the need for salvation comes at an early point in human life. If the woman, in your question, is born again & she carries a child within her, then both she & her unborn would be raised in the Rapture. If the woman is unsaved, the child would still be saved.

    But these are my views only & based on my understanding of mankind's culpability because of sin within him & the non-culpability of the innocent child who has not sinned.
  • Ptjones on Matthew 24:9
    Matthew 24:32. Our Lord Jesus said this parable to his disciples as a prophecy of future Israel. Fig tree denotes Israel nation. Hosea 9:1.Israel nation rebirthed in 1948. Now it is 72 years passed. Israel is well established showing tender branches. That denotes summer is nearing. What is summer to Israel. Summer is the season of harvest.Matthew 13:39 says harvest denotes end of the world. Yes it is time of Messiah to come. In Psalms 90: 10 says "The days our years are threescore years and ten:and if by reason of strength they may be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow: for it is soon cut off, and we fly away". So Israel remains only eight years (maximum) for harvest. Called, Chosen and faithful - be ready for the glorous event.
  • Artie whitefox on Matthew 24:44
    The disciples in the locked room had the mentality of think not, on their minds. They thought that this was it. They were next. They had no idera that Jesus was going to suddenly show up. That is what it means when the verse says: In an hour that ye think not. It will be so bad that you think. This is it. It is all over. Be aware of this: Satan who is a showy being covered in gems and gold wants to impersonate Jesus. Don't hang around that being when seen, standing on the earth
  • Teresa Mccurry on Matthew 24:9

  • The Tragedy of Being Isolated by Satan - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    Satans best tool against anybody, saved or unsaved, is Isolation. You are vulnerable because of it.

    The Humility of Jesus is shown in how he cared for people who came to Him for help.

    There are many, many ministries who could use an extra pair of hands, and a friendly smile.

    You aren't going to have a husband ring the doorbell. You need to make some calls; call your church for advise. Be VISABLE. Try:

    Feeding ministries

    Benevolence (Clothing,toys,shoes)

    Collecting coats for Kids

    Helping with blue or brown Santa

    Writing out Holiday greeting cards for shut-in's or elderly

    Your local civic organizations (paint scenery for Christmas plays, find costumes, etc

    Help Habitat for Humanity

    A nice man may be out in the midst of all that: being his kind and caring self. As long as you're isolated you will not be in range of meeting. Mission accomplished by Satans crummy helpers. Conversation in public only.

    If your church doesn't do these kind of things; find a church with a big singles ministry. No rule says you can't visit other singles ministries and attend your regular church.

    Life can be fun again. Mishael
  • Rob - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    I'd have to disagree , Satan has no mastery over a mature Believer alone or with many .

    If God before us who can be against us ?

    Yes a babe in Christ can be deceived by persuading people for a time , but the truth of the Bible will set them free if they read it alone or else where .

    The over comer has no fear of the devil . But acknowledges his tactics and avoids them , and knows how to pray effectively.

    Jesus taught the disciples how to pray . To keep them out of temptations .

    More is better but alone works too if you know how to walk with God .
  • COOL smith on Matthew 24:40
    How could there be a 3 days of darkness, and during the darkness, Christians will be raptured? And 2 in the field , one will be taken, the other left?
  • Lisa Parrish on Matthew 24:40
    What it says to me is what we are living in today. Lots of people God calling home. We came in this world by ourselves, if your not a twin. The good person will be taken and the bad left to get themselves right or continue to live in hell. It used to be my moma and dad now its just mom God called him to rest until that final day comes.
  • Frankye charles on Matthew 24:9
    What is the Wilderness of Sin?
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    Frankye, Stanjett is correct. The Wilderness of Sin is one of six wildernesses through which the Israelites travelled on their way to Canaan after leaving the bondage in Egypt/Pharaoh. The wildernesses include Shur, Etham, Sin, Sinai, Paran, and Zin. The Wilderness of Sin is sometimes confused with the Wilderness of Zin, a region on the northwestern side of the Sinai Peninsula. The Israelites traversed the Wilderness of Sin at the beginning of the Exodus, arriving at the Wilderness of Sin "on the fifteenth day of the second month after they had come out of Egypt" (Exodus 16:1).
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    Sin here is not sin as we know sin(doing wrong.) This is a place named Sin. Somewhere in the wilderness. A small town maybe or a water hole.

    And to think: Jesus came riding on an ass, or walking.
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    There is indeed movement to disregard Christ, leaving Him outside of the deity. Teaching a faith in a spirit that we create . A spirit created through our own works, a psychologically self willed goodness. Instead of reaching into the souls of mankind,they reach deep within mans pockets instead, only once again to sell another book! The Lord of course, prefers us to worship Him , and not concentrate on those things that do not bring Him glory, the same glory that is found in the love of Christ!The love that surpasses all understanding and can only be found in Him ,the Savior of the world. When we learn to love one another ,we only begin to touch the surface of the power of the Holy Ghost. We then, would become more concerned for the welfare of others ,instead of ourselves,"that doctrine of self , they preach. You need to feel good about yourself? You need to rise above!" If you need to live according to the law, here is a good one! The first commandment. "Thou shalt love the Lord with all your soul ,all your heart, everything that is in you". Remember, that when you fail to do this one thing, We have an advocate , that continues to bind us with God the Father,found in the shed blood of Christ!
  • D.J. - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    Fred Scanlan,

    Well spoken.

    Love God, Love your neighbor

    We all need to find more love, tolerance, and patience in our lives for others.

    John 15:13
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    The holy spirit can perform many missions in the preaching and teaching of Christs kingdom. When we give our self solely to him (the holy spirit), He will say and do what we could never imagine! It is impossible to serve in His kingdom without serving all three! The Father, The Son, and Holy Spirit. Thank you for response!
  • Andy G van den Berg - in Reply on Matthew 24:9

    Please consider the following, as you refuse to accept God's 'Life' giving message (John 18:37).

    God unites His people (the believers) by His Spirit (John 4:24; Ephesians 4:3-6,13).

    Luke 9:56. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them.

    Matthew 11:6. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me (Isaiah 8:14; Matthew 13:57; 24:10; 26:31; Romans 9:32; 1 Cor. 1:23; 2:14; Galatians 5:11; 1 Peter 2:8).

    John 3:19. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

    Luke 11:22. But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.

    1 John 4:4-6. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he than is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

    Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice ( John 8:47; 18:37).

    You search the scriptures for in them ye think that ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life (John 5:39,40).

    He that is spiritual judgeth (discerneth) all things, yet he himself is judged by no man (1 Corinthians 2:15).

    There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true (Proverbs 1:7; 10:8,21; 12:15; 13:20; 14:9; 16:22; 18:2; 20:3; 29:11; Luke 18:10-14; Cor. 1:20; 2:14; 15:36).

    We regret that you are not able to understand any of the above (1 Corinthians 2:14; 2 Cor. 7:10). Notwithstanding: Seek and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).

    Don't let your self-righteousness stand in the way of your salvation (Romans 10:2-4).

    In His Service.

  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    The law and gospel are what the church are not teaching. We cannot fulfill the law nor even begin to comprehend what it means to keep it . In your reply, you focus mostly on the law and sin that separates us from God the Father. No where did you mention Jesus Christ, or the love He has for all mankind, even those that believe on His name. I hope that even tho, you don't mention his name, this is what you want us to assume.Right? This same preaching is what is prevalent in the church today! Law with no gospel. The law is "a schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ". "Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal". As a matter of fact, correct me if I'm wrong,every bible verse you quoted does not mention the Lord Jesus Christ. The world wants nothing more than to take Christ out of the word of God. Even if it means using His own words to do it. This you have accomplished, while making me believe that I am justified before God the Father, without the deeds of our Lord Jesus Christ. Which is easier to say, thy sins be forgiven thee, or take up thy bed and walk?
  • Which Baptism Works on Matthew 24:9
    Even Jesus submitted to be baptized by John the Baptist. "So all righteousness would be fulfilled." It was the fulfillment of prophesy.

    Matthew Chapter 3

    13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.

    14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?

    15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

    16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

    17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

    In the book of Acts, people were still being baptized by the disciples in water to repentance.

    Even tho in John chapter 3, Jesus told Nicodemas he must be born again and baptized by the Holy Spirit.

    Water baptism was not forbidden by Jesus. I chose to be baptized publically, to show the cast out demons that I belonged to Jesus.

    Thank the Lord if you have never been oppressed by demons for meddling in the Occult: had one try to break your neck; restrain you so you cannot stand or speak; had one levitate your bed 6 ft off the floor; manifest to guests in other rooms , scaring them to pieces. Every single day, turn your paintings sideways. When you sit down in Church and the church prays corporately to cast the demons out of the building...the demons tell you that you "better get up and leave with them."

    I confessed my past to a whole Church and was set free from the oppression finally.

    If you don't know zip about spiritual warfare ; don't tell people it's heresy to be water baptized!! Few church's teach deliverance ministry. You sure don't teach it here. Be a disciple full bore.

    Don't email me either unless you need deliverance from Pharisee-ism. Thank you. Mishael
  • Andy G van den Berg on Matthew 24:9

    A Gallup pole of the 50 largest Metropolitan area's in the U.S. found that 6.2% of San Franciscans identify as LGBT; which is 2.6% higher than the national average. The survey was conducted between June 2012 and December 2014. The question now is: Would God be able to locate 10 people that are righteous in His eyes? We are afraid not, and please remember: he that is 'spiritual' judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man (1 Corinthians 2:15).

    We have served the true and living God of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob since 1984 and during those days have learned that this whole world has beendeceived (Revelation 12:9), and that it is a narrow road that leadeth unto 'Life' and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14). Also, that mankind prefers darkness over light (John 3:19), as they serve after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Galatians 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Revelation 12:9).

    It should be remembered that God's judgment will always prevail and therefore our message remains the same: Ye must Repent.

    You can learn more about our Ministry in Christ by Googling our 'Names' or the article "False Apostles and False Christs' or 'A World Deceived'. There is also a 'Contact' page for further communication. We invite you to review the 'Letter of Introduction' posted on the 'Introduction' page of the website. It highlights some of our work. Please note that our website was visited last year by people from over 160 countries. There are a total of 193 countries throughout the world plus the Vatican and Palestine that are listed as observer states.

    It should be noted that in over 36 years of service we have never collected/received, solicited or requested donations. The gift of 'Life' was freely given and freely do we give to all those that believe (2 Kings 5:16; Matthew 6:26; 10:8).

    Seek, and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).

  • Sandra Torres on Matthew 24:9
    Folks in Christ during The Tribulation of the Anti-Christ will not be openly working in the fields! They will be running for Their lives! So Matthew 24:40-41 implies a Rapture before the Anti-Christ Tribulation.
  • Sandra Torres on Matthew 24:9
    Matthew 24:40-41 Sure implies that there will be a rapture of Those in Christ! Peace time is described here not Tribulation time. So this Rapture has to happen when Folks in Christ are not in The Tribulation of The Anti-Christ.
  • Sandra Torres on Matthew 24:9
    Matthew 24:23 The Secret Chambers here is meant that Jesus Christ is in Folks in Christ.
  • Sandra Torres on Matthew 24:9
    Why would The Two Witnesses not be raptured when The Body of Christ is raptured? If a rapture happens PreTribulation then it has to be when The Two Witnesses get raptured. If Post Tribulation then it that rapture would br solely described of Matthew 24:40. Which means that only The Two Witnesses get raptured PreTribulation. Which means that those alive in Christ after The Two Witnesses get raptured up would have to live through the Anti-Christ Tribulation until Jesus Christ's Second Coming.
  • What are we gonna do about Jesus - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    What secular book did you read, to get this explanation of when everybody, dead then alive; are caught up into the clouds to Jesus Christ?

    The 2 people you speak of were translated to heaven without tasting death. When they return, to Jerusalem, they are going to preach the Gospel to the Jews, and to the entire planet, by satellite (Internet), and antenna (to the poor). Everybody on earth will see it. Antichrist will order them killed; which will be witnessed by everyone on earth.

    The Christians will already have been caught up.

    WE ARE ALL to be LOOKING for JESUS'S return. Listening for the shout and the trump of God. Only the Father knows when that moment will be. Christians must be actively looking and listening for that; every moment of every day or night.

    This is all written down in the Bible. You have no need that any man teach you. We all have the ability to accept what is already written. Jesus would say to us: IT IS WRITTEN!!

    Other than the well known "caught up" scriptures, many many more OT prophesies are in the Bible like gems, that, light up those verses.

    This is no time to be fascinated by the secular explanation of these things. Books make money. They become idols, if it distracts you from the Truth of the pages in THE BIBLE. Jesus is not going to listen to excuses, like: but, but, I have this (secular) book that says, thus and so!!

    Just the words of, "but, but, but" are the language of goats. Who butt their heads against the revealed and known Truth of Gods Word. You must make a choice now: to FOLLOW JESUS.....or to follow the writer of a secular book.

    Everyone in this website has a responsibility to lead these people to the truth as a disciple of Jesus did (Peter, John, Paul, and the others). Not spilling out miles and miles of scriptures; but actually witnessing, preaching, one on one. Tell your TESTIMONY. Like Jesus, be real; be Jesus in the flesh.

  • Richard - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    Brother Misael,

    I'll keep this one short and sweet as the last post I made didn't seem to make it up. I very much enjoy reading your writings and this is to you. Last year, after being led to and accepting Christ, I heard very loud trumpet blasts one night. It was an intimate experience when the Lord came to me. I have typed a detailed Testimony of what happened to me as it was all centered around Jesus Christ and our Father. I allowed this site to publish what I wrote in their book as they ask after submitting your Testimony. I don't know how long after submitting your Testimony when it will come up in that section. You're the one who informed me that there was a section for Testimonies.

    I just felt to write this to you brother. God Bless.
