The Bible Doctrine Of The Pretribulation Rapture Of The Church As Found In The Book Of Revelation
God’s voice "shook the Earth" when Jesus was on the cross, and it will "shake it again" during the time of Jacob’s trouble. But for the Church’s pretribulation rapture, no shaking at all. A voice like a trumpet that only saved believers can hear, and we are g-o-n-e gone. Are you starting to see the difference in God’s plan for the Jews and His plan for the Church? They clearly are not the same.

Had the Jews accepted the preaching of Stephen, instead of rejecting it and stoning him, the day of the Lord would have happened right there in Acts 7, and the Church Age would never have happened.
In our day and age, the Church Age, as inconceivable as it might sound, there are many Christians who assail and attack the Bible doctrine of the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church of Jesus Christ. Scoffers go on to say, and wrongly so, that this doctrine was not taught before Mary McDonald and John Nelson Darby spoke about it in the early 1830’s. Some even say it was an invention of CI Scofield in his reference study Bible.
“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.” Revelation 4:1,2 (KJV)

The Trump administration’s much-touted peace plan may include investments of tens of billions of dollars to the Palestinians and other countries in the region, according to a report Wednesday.
The New York Times, citing unidentified analysts with knowledge of the matter, said the funds would include around $25 billion for the West Bank and Gaza and another $40 billion for Israeli neighbors including Egypt, Jordan and possibly Lebanon.
The paper noted that other sources who had spoken to US President Donald Trump’s adviser Jared Kushner said the figures were not necessarily accurate, but confirmed that the investments would be in the tens of billions.
While the US would contribute part of the funds in question, the report said Kushner planned for most of the contributions to come from the region’s countries.

Understanding the many benefits of cannabis in cancer treatment

India prepares for war, 14,000 bunkers are built along Pakistan border as the nations prepare their military
Feb 27, 2019 | 0 |
(Daily Mail) – India is preparing for war with the construction of 14,000 bunkers to protect families on the Pakistan border as Islamabad invokes the specter of nuclear conflict, telling India ‘better sense’ is needed. Earlier today Pakistan and India said they had shot down each other’s warplanes, in a dramatic escalation of the dangerous confrontation between the nuclear-armed rivals. Pakistan said it downed two Indian jets in its airspace and captured two pilots, later amended to one: whom they then seemingly paraded –
blindfolded and bloodied – for the camera. On Tuesday evening, Islamabad used heavy caliber artillery to shell 12 to 15 places along the Indian side creating panic among the populace on the border where bunkers are being hastily thrown up to ease their fears. The downed pilot was named today as Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman and seen in a video of what appears to be an interview at a Pakistani Airbase, in which he refuses to reveal any information about his capture – or captors.
Doctors Warn Dad They Don’t Need Parental Consent to Inject Daughter, 14, With Male Hormones
Feb 28, 2019 | 0 |
OPINION (FaithWire) – A group of Canadian doctors has insisted that a 13-year-old does not need her parent’s consent before being injected with hormones that will aid her gender transition. The girl in question was attending a school district in Delta, British Columbia, when her father found out that administrators were treating his then-12-year-old as a boy. Unbeknown to the dad, Maxine had now become “Quinn” at the advice of her school counselor, with the district adamant that it was following official policy laid out in the BC Ministry of Education’s Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) Policy.
Under this policy, they said, Maxine’s father had zero right to know anything about his own daughter’s “preferred sex, gender, or name” while at school. At this, Maxine’s dad was understandably concerned. He noted that his daughter had struggled to cope with her parents’ 2013 divorce, and had since endured periods of depression. Maxine’s dad thought it possible that this transgender phase was simply an additional coping mechanism that his daughter had employed to cope with her emotional trauma. Indeed, she had previously gone through a temporary lesbian phase.

- Police reported more than 4,100 knife-related crimes in 2018, compared to around 3,800 reported during 2017 — and only 400 in 2008. Overall, during the past ten years, knife-related crimes in Germany have increased by more than 900% — from one a day to more than ten a day.
- German media do not report most knife-related violence. Crimes that are reported are often dismissed as "isolated incidents" that are unrelated to mass immigration. Moreover, many crime reports, including those in police blotters, omit references to the nationalities of the perpetrators and victims — apparently to avoid inflaming anti-immigration sentiments…. Many Germans have the sense that danger lurks everywhere, but the lack of official statistics seemingly allows German authorities to pretend that the problem is imaginary.
In an interview with Sky News, Jared Kushner said that the goal of the political component of the plan, which is still under wraps, is "really about establishing borders," before quickly qualifying that statement with "the goal of resolving these borders is really to eliminate them" because a border-free region would allow for the free flow of goods and lead to more "opportunity." Kushner said the economic effect would be felt throughout the Middle East, including Jordan, Lebanon, and Egypt.

New York’s law legalizing abortion after a child’s gestational age of 24 weeks was caught in the crosshairs of President Trump’s state of the union address a few weeks ago. “Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth,” said the president.
Dozens of news outlets rushed to quibble with his words. An NBC “fact check” labeled the statement false. The law allows abortions “after 24 weeks if the fetus is not viable or when it’s necessary to protect the life of the mother,” the fact-checker reported.
Defenders of this law and those like it say it is moderate and compassionate, concerned only with making sure women with life-threatening pregnancy complications are not left to die. But if one looks at the medical and legal context for the law and understands what exactly the terms mean, it becomes clear that the reality is much less straightforward—and much darker.
Churches Serving Beer To Lure People
Signs of the Last Days® MinistryFebruary 25, 2019News
“Christian” churches in the U.S. have been turning to unorthodox means such as concerts, sports, movies, and other entertainment, as a way of getting people to attend for some time.
But now there are also “brewery churches.” One is called Castle Church who describes itself as a community church that is “Orlando’s newest premier destination brewery.”
The church says that while beer is its passion, they also make it clear “as a spiritual community, we exist for people first.”
It’s reported that perhaps it should come as no surprise that the first known congregation founded expressly as a “brewery church” is a Lutheran outpost, part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and its Florida-Bahamas Synod.

The UK has broken the record for its warmest winter day for the second consecutive day, with a temperature of 21.2°C in Kew Gardens, London.
According to the BBC Monday was the first time temperatures of over 20C had been reported in winter.
The unusually high temperatures have prompted hedgehogs to come out of hibernation, butterflies to emerge and migrating birds such as swallows and house martins to arrive more than a month early.
The RSPB said birds, insects and other wildlife could face "a real crisis" if the weather turns colder, as forecasts predict.

Netanyahu in Moscow tells Putin Israel will continue hitting Iran in Syria

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Russian President Vladimir Putin that Israel will continue to take action against Iran in Syria, in the first significant meeting between the two since a major spat developed over a downed spy plane last year.
“The greatest threat to stability and security in the region comes from Iran and its proxies,” Netanyahu said. “We are determined to continue our aggressive activity against Iran, which calls for our destruction, and against its attempts to establish itself militarily in Syria.”
Israel and Russia have been at odds since September, when Syrian air defenses shot down a Russian reconnaissance plane while aiming at an Israeli jet that was targeting an alleged Iranian installation. The incident, which Moscow blamed Israel for, threatened to hamper Israel’s air campaign against Iranian entrenchment in Syria.
