   I am certain that we have all asked ourselves the questions “Why am I here”, “What is the reason for my being” and “What is it all about”
  I have taken time out from this outreach ministry to just wait patiently on the Lord. We must understand that He is in charge and not us; many a time I have wanted to write about certain biblical items, but they would have been from me, and not Holy Spirit inspired.
So here goes, many will find what I have to say very offensive; many will think that because it does not fit into their doctrinal thinking, it is pure garbage. So be it.
We have heard ad nausea about the so called Israeli ‘Roadmap’; but no-one seems to care about GOD’S ROADMAP. I am going to paraphrase it….forgive me if I leave some parts out, we require here only the framework of the plan.
God made the heavens and the earth, mankind and animals in 6 days, start to finish… and rested on the 7th 
Adam He created from the dust, and Eve He created from Adam. Thus creating a chain of command GOD…MAN…WOMAN. They were made with sexual organs in order to reproduce. God made woman for man...not man for man, or woman for woman for depraved sick sex.
God walked and talked openly with Adam and Eve we are told, until tempted by Satan and they disobeyed God. Thus sin entered man and He was banished from God, unable to see Him with human eyes ever again.
It was God’s choice to banish them because sin carries consequences, and God is a just and fair God. The sin being inherited through the generations became intolerable to God and He regretted having ever created mankind. He then chose to destroy His earthly creation with a flood. Only Noah, his family and sufficient animals were saved for a second attempt, as it were.
 Sin still continued and God then chose Abram, whom He later called Abraham. It was God’s great desire that the descendants of Abraham would be a shining example to all the nations of the world of how a ‘chosen’ people who loved and obeyed God, would be rewarded by God. Whenever they loved, honored and obeyed God, God in turn rewarded them handsomely. God took them out of slavery, destroyed the Egyptians and reared up a new leader, Moses, to lead them. On mount Sinai God gave the Law to Moses to give to all the descendants of Abraham through his son Isaac and his grandson Jacob whom God later renamed Israel. His descendants being thus called Israel or Israelites.
Holy Scripture clearly shows us that Israel did not love the Lord, nor listen to His Law, and they were time and time again punished.
Clearly this people needed a Messiah, and in the fullness of time God sent His Only begotten Son, Jesus to them and them alone. Jesus’ sole purpose at the time was to get God’s plan for the Israelites back on track.
Jesus was born an Israelite and not a Jew. He had come to save the lost of the house of Israel. But the Jews of the day hated Him, rejected Him and crucified Him.
Jesus was crucified mid-week on Wednesday. Rose after 3 full days and 3 full nights and appeared to Mary Magdalene in the very early hours of Sunday. He had taken Satan captive and gotten the victory over death.

On Resurrection Sunday He appeared to many of His faithful Disciples and breathed upon them the Holy Spirit and they became believers. Without the Holy Spirit within you, you cannot believe. The power associated with the gift of the Holy Spirit would only come upon them later at Pentecost.
The Jews having crucified Jesus lost all rights to the kingdom and all promises were rendered null and void, the Jews having reneged. The doors were subsequently opened up to all of mankind. From that day forth God had no distinction between Jew and Gentile.
When Jesus ascended to heaven for the last time, two angelic witnesses tell the Disciples that when Jesus returns for the second time it would be in the exact same fashion as He had ascended. No so called ‘Rapture’ to heaven for seven years, or three and a half years, or in fact one day. We are told quite categorically that every person who has ever lived and are now asleep having died, will be woken and resurrected, joining those alive. They will all witness Him coming, even those who crucified Him.
Jesus said that He was going to prepare a place for us in heaven. He did exactly that… it is called the New Jerusalem…and He is bringing it with Him when He returns.
Then all mankind will be judged; some to everlasting life in the New Jerusalem, and some to everlasting damnation in Hell.
Jesus tells us that those who believe in Him and who persevere to the end will be saved. If you turn your back again on Jesus after accepting Him you will lose your salvation and can never return.
God no longer has a Jewish ‘chosen race’, and the Jews today certainly are not the ‘Apple of His eye’ as many would have us believe. The only true believers are those who accept Jesus as their Christ…they are the true ‘Israel of God’, they are the faithful ‘Israel’ that He wanted right in the beginning, to walk and talk and commune with Him.
The present country of Israel is where the ant-Christ and the Beast will be in the City of Jerusalem, which will become so vile that God will send all the armies of the world to do battle against it. God in the form of Jesus is not returning to save Israel but to destroy it. Only a remnant who see Jesus and repent will be saved, God thus proving to all mankind His ultimate Grace..
  And that my dear reader is the Gospel in a nutshell, no Hollywood Gospel, no lounging around in Heaven on streets of gold, or playing harps on clouds, no secret flying off into space to a heavenly planet … we don’t go to heaven; heaven comes to us just as Jesus taught us when we pray…
Matthew 6:9 "In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
6:10 Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
6:11 Give us this day our daily bread.
6:12 And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
6:13 And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
  JN 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
There is no better time than right now to spread the Gospel…please pass this message on…
Yours In His Name

How Can Rapture Proponents Call Their Position "Pre", "Mid", or "Post-Trib (or Even "Pre-Wrath") When There Will Be No "Great Tribulation" Period?

The ongoing debate as to when the Rapture of God's saints to Heaven will occur, predominates most discussions between eschatologists and students of 'Prophecy.' The most popular view is that this event happens seven years before the so-called "Great Tribulation period, which is called  the Pre-Tribulation Rapture. Others believe it happens in between a seven year period of time (Mid-Tribulation), and many others believe Christians will experience the Post Tribulation Rapture, which proponents claim will not occur until (or immediately preceding) the return of Jesus Christ. There are also a growing group of eschatologists who believe in what they call the "Pre-Wrath Rapture," which supposedly occurs immediately after the so-called "Great Tribulation," but not before God pours His wrath on unbelievers. The so-called "Great Tribulation" is a theory culled from the Book of Daniel; however, there is nothing in the New Testament alluding to such an event. Thousands of books, audio tapes and CD's and DVD's, pamphlets, television and radio shows flood the Christian marketplace (and most rampantly on the Internet) with the four predominate views, and a virtual potpourri of their modified versions.
The unfortunate dilemma is that none of these versions are correct because the Bible nowhere tells us that there will be a specific event or period known as the "Great Tribulation," which automatically make all of these doctrinal positions moot. If there is no "Great Tribulation" period anywhere between one through seven years, then how could we call any of these positions a Pre, Mid, Post Tribulation period, or even Pre-Wrath? 
Our book, The End Times Passover, goes into great detail in the discussion of the so-called "Great Tribulation" controversy, and provides scripture to prove there is no such period nor any event in the future that can be labeled as such. Obviously, we cannot include the entire book (which is over 500 pages long) in this blog post, but we can provide you with the book's PROLOGUE, which explains why novice eschatologists and Bible students (and even many pastors and teachers who graduated from American seminaries) can never prove their specific positions on when The Rapture to Heaven occurs, because their theories are primarily based on another theory called "The Great Tribulation." As a matter of fact, we even provide a biblical explanation as to the difference between tribulation and wrath, which most Rapture proponents intermingle together, leading to more confusion for their adherents, who eventually find themselves diving head first into the proverbial Rapture rabbit hole. Yes! Christians will be caught up to have a "meeting" with Jesus Christ in the air, but there is no Bible record that Jesus returns back to Heaven with the church. Learn, once and for all, why there is no event in the Bible called "Pre-Tribulation Rapture to Heaven:"
