Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation.
1 Corinthians 1611 AV KJ Bible
Chapter 15
1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

Judethz,

I agree with you that we are in the Season. The blood moon that rose over Italy on April 12th was not predicted. That was a sign to the Vatican in my opinion. I think something big is going to happen this upcoming Feast of Tabernacles Oct 3-9 this year.

I feel that it is very close, it could even happen today so we have to be ready at all times lest it take us unawares.

Some graduate at the end and some do not , has always been that way . The universe has no bias . Opportunities present and are taken or rejected but we can be sure of one thing , opportunities will come again . We are all on the same path , none are more special than another . Is one car closer to a destination better than another ? The boook of enoch made things very clear , for those on the path to god , perservere until the LAST DAY and you will be released .

The words of unbelievers are growing even uglier in these past few months. Some people seem demonically inspired to write vicious and spitting replies.

They dismiss the seriousness of the call to repent of their sins and accept God's gift of salvation.

Romans 2:5
But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart - you are storing up wrath for yourself - in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God.

All people will be judged thoroughly and perfectly for whatever they have done.
There is a Judgment Day.

To be forgiven for WHAT YOU HAVE DONE is the greatest gift that you'll ever receive.
Jesus Christ, the Messiah, Savior and King of Kings died on a cross, as a sacrifice - in YOUR place - He died for your sins.
Accept His gift of Salvation, to be forgiven and to be made pure, clean and righteous.

God's only begotten Son, The Lamb of God, born of a virgin, sinless and worthy to be given all worship and praise forever, amen.

Be saved.
The Tribulation is starting.

A great deception is coming upon the entire world, a deception so extreme and intense that even many so-called "Christians" will fall away and be deceived.

Re: Why the Rapture may be sooner than many people think.
But the whole rapture pre/mid false teaching/belief has it's origins in fear.

Those who believe pre/mid trib "taken into the air" rapture are unable to Trust God Fully.


 Quoting: Lester 58915073


I believe in nothing but Jesus Christ.

I believe the Pre-Tribulation Rapture makes perfect Biblical sense.

If it is not true, does not happen, or I am not taken, and I die, so be it.

Would I stop proclaiming Christ or say all the moreso when we see these things taking place?

Re: Why the Rapture may be sooner than many people think.
The primary reason I don't believe in the rapture is because John the Baptist wasn't rescued nor was Jesus exempted from the cross thus we must stand against what is to come with the Almighty working through the body, the flesh though He need not nonetheless working through His creation smiting the fallen. (Ephesians 6:12) (Joshua 1:9) (Psalm 139:13-16)

Of course prophet Elijah and Enoch were taken.

37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.


43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.



Matthew 24 states the SAME thing using the times of Noah as the example.

37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

KJV 1 Thess. 4
13But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
15For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

3For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
6Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
7For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
8But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
9For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
10Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
11Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
