Is The World On The Brink Of Seeing Jared Kushner Bring The 7-Year Peace Covenant Prophesied By The Prophet Daniel? • Now The End Begins

Today, the Wall Street Journal reports that “President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior White House adviser, Jared Kushner, plans to travel to the Middle East this week to try to advance U.S. efforts to reach an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal, a White House official said Sunday. The trip marks the White House’s first major follow up to Mr. Trump’s trip to the region last month and suggests Mr. Kushner’s policy portfolio is far from shrinking despite scrutiny by federal investigators into his meetings with Russian officials.”

We are not saying that Jared Kushner is the Antichrist, no matter how much he looks like a Central Casting version of the AC. What we are saying is that only the Antichrist is able to bring about the prophesied “peace” between the Jews and the Palestinians.

“Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7 (KJV)

Last week, NTEB was the only news publishing organization on planet Earth that alerted you to the idea that President Trump and Jared Kushner may have finally have “solved” the Middle East peace problem between the Jews and the Palestinians. (If you haven’t read it it yet, please do so now). In that article we told you about “incredible buzz around Washington about an announcement to be made shortly regarding “Middle East peace.” So we were very happy to see the headline over at the Wall Street Journal this morning.

“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” Daniel 9:27 (KJV)

Today, the Wall Street Journalreports that “President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior White House adviser, Jared Kushner, plans to travel to the Middle East this week to try to advance U.S. efforts to reach an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal, a White House official said Sunday. The trip marks the White House’s first major follow up to Mr. Trump’s trip to the region last month and suggests Mr. Kushner’s policy portfolio is far from shrinking despite scrutiny by federal investigators into his meetings with Russian officials.”

The WSJ article goes on to say “The White House official stressed that no major breakthroughs are expected during the trip and said there is no expectation for three-party talks at this time.”

Now that may be true, but here at NTEB we feel otherwise.

If Donald Trump, and more specifically Jared Kushner, are able to bring about a covenant of peace between the Jews and the Palestinians, the playing field gets changed in ways most people cannot begin to imagine. For starters, if Kushner pulls this off, all of the current investigative woes besetting the administration will disappear over night. A peace accord is not only the mythical “white whale” sought by many and achieved by none, it is also the missing last ingredient needed to kick off the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” 2 Thessalonians 2:3 (KJV)

The apostle Paul says that when those two things occur in the same place at the same time, you better get ready to fly because the next event after that is the Rapture of the Church.

Is this article setting a date for the Rapture? Nope. But what we are doing is alerting you to the possibility that we are getting ready to see something Christians have been waiting for for the past 2,000 years.

FORGET THE EMBASSY MOVE, TRUMP MAY JUST BE GETTING READY TO ANNOUNCE BLOCKBUSTER MIDDLE EAST PEACE DEAL

Now please pay close attention. We are not saying that Jared Kushner is the Antichrist, no matter how much he looks like a Central Casting version of the AC. What we are saying is that only the Antichrist is able to bring about the prophesied “peace” between the Jews and the Palestinians. NTEB told you a year and a half ago that Donald Trump was God’s man to bring about the “global shaking”, and we have been 100% correct every step of the way (please refer to the scripture at the top of this article). NTEB told you way back on February 13, 2016, that Donald Trump “will easily win in November in a landslide“, and he sure did. And we were one of the only news outlets to say that.

Donald Trump and the coming global shaking:

Go back and listen to this Bible study we did last year telling you about how God was planning on using Donald Trump to carry out end times prophecy. 

How did we know? God revealed it, we believed it, and published an article to tell you about it. Exactly what we are doing right now with this article about Jared Kushner and peace in the Middle East.

“And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.” Mark 13:37 (KJV)

Are YOU ready for what comes next?

UPDATE TO ORIGINAL ARTICLE: Shortly after publishing this article today, another interesting tidbit floated my way. Seems that Jared Kushner, in co-operation with Apple, Amazon and Google, are going to completely revamp the entire computer networking communication structure of the United States government. My, my, my….how very, scary interesting.

“On Monday, the Office of American Innovation, a Kushner-led group inside the West Wing, will conduct the first of many brainstorming sessions with about 18 CEOs and two-dozen more business experts. The White House also plans to unveil a new technology council. Trump and Vice President Pence will swing by the working sessions on Monday. Kushner, his wife Ivanka Trump and most of Trump’s senior aides and advisers will participate. So too will Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney. The presence of Cook and Bezos could make for some interesting dynamics.”source

Addendum;

In case you found it in your heart to seek and take part in the Blessed Hope which will protect you from very terrible time what the word of Yahweh call Tribulation, without any coercion, firstly repent of your sins and follow the instruction below:

Romans 10:

8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;


9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

The Clue To The Identity Of The Woman In Revelation 12 Is Found All The Way Back In Genesis 37 • Now The End Begins

Who is the woman in Revelation 12? According the Genesis 37, the woman is none other than the nation of Israel. It is ludicrous to suggest that the woman is Mary, just as it is equally implausible to suggest the woman is the Church.
revelation-12-woman-israel-fleeing-to-selah-petra-three-one-half-years-1260-days-nteb-prophecy

The moon represents Joseph’s mother, Rachel. And the “11 stars” are Joseph’s brothers with Joseph himself being the 12th “star”.

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” Revelation 12:1-3 (KJV)

For starters, the Church is removed from the Earth in the Rapture before the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble. Why? Because it is Jacob’s trouble – Israel’s trouble – and the Church has no business being there so we are called up and away. We see this blessed event taking place, in type, in Revelation 4:1,2 (KJV). But lately for some reason, I have been seeing videos and reading articles trying to make a connection between Revelation 12 and the Church. So I thought it would be edifying to take a moment and visit with “the woman” of Revelation 12.

If you are a Catholic, you have undoubtedly taught that this “woman” is Mary giving birth to the baby Jesus. If you are a Laodicean with a “new version” of the Bible, you’ve likely been taught that the “woman” is the Church. But this brief study compare scripture with scripture to show you that the woman of Revelation 12 is exactly who the Bible says she is. The nation of Israel in the time of Jacob’s trouble.

For starters, this “woman” is wearing some mighty unique attire

Clothed with the sun, a crown of stars (12, mind you), and standing upon the moon. As a child in Catholic school, I constantly saw illustrations of the “virgin” Mary adorned like that. So to most Catholics, this sure sounds like Mary, right? Wrong. Do you remember where we have read a passage like that before? It’s all the way back in Genesis.

“And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth? And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.” Genesis 37:9-11 (KJV)

Ahhh, yes, the dream of Joseph that got him in hot water. And what do we see here? We see the very same sun, moon and stars from Revelation 12, and this passage give us their identity. As you read the verses in Genesis, you see instantly that the sun represents Joseph’s father, Jacob. The moon represents Joseph’s mother, Rachel. And the “11 stars” are Joseph’s brothers with Joseph himself being the 12th “star”. This band of brothers are the 12 tribes of Israel. So the “sun, moon and stars” are the entire family of Jacob, are they not? Indeed they are, so let’s ask the really obvious question now.

Who is the woman in Revelation 12? According the Genesis 37, the woman is none other than the nation of Israel. It is ludicrous to suggest that the woman is Mary, just as it is equally implausible to suggest the woman is the Church. While it’s true that Jesus came out of Mary, it is equally true and perhaps more so that He came out of the tribe of Judah which is part of national Israel. As far as this woman being the Church, it is Jesus who birthed the Church and not the other way around. The Church no where is referred to as a “woman”. It is called a virgin and a bride, but never a woman.

Going a little further, it is Jesus who will rule with a “rod of iron”, and it was Jesus in Acts who was “caught up to God” while the apostles watched. More than that, Paul never tells us Christians that we are “of Mary”, but that we are the “seed of Abraham”.

“Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” Galatians 3:16,29 (KJV)

Israel is told to run for their lives, literally

Lastly, we know exactly who is driven out into the wilderness in Revelation 12 because in Matthew 24 where the same event is recorded, Jesus tells us who the woman is. And it is absolutely not Mary or the Church.

“When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:” Matthew 24:15,16 (KJV)

The people who are “in Judea” are the remnant of national Israel who have not taken the Mark of the Beast, and Jesus commands them to literally run for their lives. They do run, right to the red rock city of Selah Petra where God miraculously protects and feeds them there for ” a thousand two hundred and threescore days”, or three and one half years.

The great red dragon of Revelation 12 is Leviathan from Job 40

And what about the dragon “casting a flood” out of his mouth to try and drown Israel? Certainly you remember our old friend Leviathan from the book of Job, right? The same guy whom you were falsely told was a “dinosaur” is none other than the Devil, and the book of Job is a picture of the Jew in the time of Jacob’s trouble.

“Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.” Job 40:23 (KJV)

When the Bible says that he “drinketh up a river”, it is directly referencing Revelation 12:15 (KJV). See  how it is all coming together, and everywhere you look it is referencing Israel.

By the time all this takes place, the Church will have already been safely in Heaven for three and a half years. We will be watching “from the balcony” as the nation of Israel flees from Antichrist and hides out in Selah Petra.

Now you know who the woman is. It’s the nation of Israel. What part of Revelation 12 is the Church involved with? None of it.

Not a single, solitary, tiny little bit.

Unlike The Church Age, Salvation In The Time Of Jacob’s Trouble Contains An Element Of Works • Now The End Begins

You cannot find me ONE verse in all the Bible where Paul connects works with the born again believer’s salvation, only to their inheritance at the Judgment Seat of Christ. But for the Tribulation saint, without maintaining works pleasing to the Lord they cannot be saved.
time-jacobs-trouble-two-witnesses-works-salvation-great-tribulation-nteb

Our apostle, Paul, tells us that the WHOLE BIBLE is written FOR us, but the whole Bible is not written to us. There is doctrine for the Church Age in his writings, but not all Bible doctrine can be applied to the Church Age

“Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.” Revelation 14:12,13 (KJV)

There are two platform Bible doctrines that the lazy Laodicean Christians in our day seem to despise more than any other. The first being the glorious doctrine of the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church, and the second being the amazing gift of eternal security given to no other dispensation in human history. We’ll start with the second one first, eternal security.

Like it or not, Christians in the Church Age cannot lose their salvation

The apostle Paul, in so many places in his writings, tells us over and over that we did nothing to earn our salvation and we do nothing to keep it. The mechanics of it are amazing, but simple. In the Church Age, when anyone becomes born again, they are SEALED IN by the Holy Spirit so they can never “fall out”. If a kind aunt or uncle gives your 5 year old child a gift card on their birthday with a $20 bill inside, do you let them be in charge of the money – or – do you “hold it for them” until they are ready to spend it? Answer – you hold it for them because you know they of their own accord would lose it. That;s what God does for me and you in the Church Age, He holds our salvation by sealing us in so we cannot “lose it” when we sin after salvation.

“That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.” Ephesians 1:10-14 (KJV)

In Romans 8, Paul again reminds us that there is nothing we can think, say or do that can separate us from Jesus Christ after we have gotten saved.

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:35,37-39 (KJV)

In no other dispensation since Adam and Eve has God given the gift of being eternally secure. In the Old Testament, in any of those former dispensations, people who fell away from the LORD died and dropped straight into the pit of Hell, and sometimes for a whole lot less of an offence than you or I might commit on a fairly regular basis. Those people were NOT “sealed in” by the Holy Spirit, and there is not ONE verse anywhere in the Old Testament showing anyone had eternal security. When King David sinned with Bathsheba, David being a man after God’s own heart, he begged God not to take the Holy Spirit from him. Why? Because David knew he could lose it for what he did, and on some levels should have lost it.

“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.” Psalm 51:10-12 (KJV)

So we clearly see that people in the OT did not have eternal security and were not sealed in. In the time of Jacob’s trouble this will return

The Church Age, which began in the book of Acts and will continue until the Rapture, is the only dispensation that is sealed in. In the time of Jacob’s trouble which starts on the heels of the rapture of the Church, there is a return to the Kingdom Age which was in effect until Acts 7 and the stoning of Stephen. What God had “put on pause” is once again at the top of the prophecy playlist.

For lack of a better term, let’s refer to the people who follow God in the time of Jacob’s trouble as Tribulation Saints. These end times saints are faced with enormous difficulties and challenges that you can read about in detail here. And the Scripture verses that talk about the tribulation saints have something that NONE of Paul’s writings contain, can you guess what that might be? Works connected with salvation. You cannot find me ONE verse in all the Bible where Paul connects works with the born again believer’s salvation, only to their inheritance at the Judgment Seat of Christ. But for the Tribulation saint, without maintaining works pleasing to the Lord they cannot be saved. Here are just a few to illustrate what I mean.

  • “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” Matthew 24:11-13 (KJV) Note: In the time of Jacob’s trouble, if you don’t endure to the end, you are NOT saved. Works all the way.
  • “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.” Revelation 14:12,13 (KJV) Note: The people in Revelation 14 are Tribulation saints, and not only do they keep the commandments for salvation, their works follow them around. Christians in the Church Age are not required to “keep the commandments” for salvation.
  • “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” James 2:26 (KJV) Note: To whom is the book of James addressed? To the “12 tribes” of Israel in, and it will have it’s doctrinal application in the time of Jacob’s trouble.
  • “Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.” 1 Peter 2:12 (KJV) Note: Did you catch the time reference in this verse? The “day of visitation” is the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, Peter is doctrinally addressing Tribulation saints.

Before we go further, let us address the difference between a doctrinal application versus a spiritual one

Our apostle, Paul, tells us that the WHOLE BIBLE is written FOR us, but the whole Bible is not written to us. There is doctrine for the Church Age in his writings, but not all Bible doctrine can be applied to the Church Age.

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” 2 Timothy 3:16,17 (KJV)

We can read books like 1&2 Peter, Hebrews and James and derive much spiritual and prophetical application from them, but almost no doctrinal application at all. Peter, Hebrews and James are Kingdom Age books doctrinally, and will be the gospel for the Tribulation saints in the the time of Jacob’s trouble. But for Christians in the Church Age, there is much from a devotional aspect we can glean from them.

The great Mark of the Beast conundrum

When I debated Kent Hovind last year on our radio show, he came on to try and defend the ridiculous Pre-Wrath Rapture position held by apostates like Steven Anderson, Texe Marrs and others. He presented his arguments and I present mine without either side conceding much ground. Then the bomb dropped.

I asked Dr. Hovind if he believed in the Bible doctrine of eternal security that we have been discussing in this article. To my joy and surprise, he said that he “absolutely believed” that Christians in the Church Age are eternally “sealed” until the “day of redemption”. Just for fun, I asked him again if he truly believed what he had just stated, and he reaffirmed he did. 100%.

With his now-stated belief in eternal security for Christians in the Church Age confirmed, I took him to Revelation 14 where is says this:

“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” Revelation 14:9-11 (KJV)

I thought I could hear him either gulp or gasp when those words sunk in on him. Then, without allowing him to catch his breath, I took him to Revelation 20:

“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.” Revelation 20:4 (KJV)

Now Bro. Kent was in stunned disbelief. Why? Because I had just showed him two places in the Bible where God says there is a sin that is absolutely unforgivable, the sin of taking the Mark of the Beast. If Christians were in the time of Jacob’s trouble, with eternal security, and one took the Mark what would happen? Unless God had some hidden verses to account for it, that Christian would NOT lose their salvation by taking the Mark, but in so doing, it would be in grievous violation of the two verses I just showed you.

So now we are presented with an unsolvable Bible contradiction….unless…unless…unless the Church is removed in the Rapture before the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble. Which we are – yay!

Now you need to do some thinking here, but hopefully it’s starting to sink in. If the TAKING of the Mark is the unforgivable sin in the Tribulation, and it is, then the NOT TAKING of the Mark would be a WORK connected with keeping or maintaining your salvation. Do you get it? Does it make sense now?

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)

Our apostle Paul commands us to “rightly divide” the Bible, thus proving that divisions or dispensations exist. And when we do that, like a magic decoder ring in the cereal boxes of yesteryear, we begin to see what is doctrine for us, and what is doctrine for those who come after us.

One reason why Paul is so despised by many “christian” splinter groups like the Hebrew Roots Movement, Sacred Name, Seventh Day Adventists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons and so many others is because it is in his writings we learn of the Pretrib Rapture, Eternal Security, Salvation by grace through faith, and so many others. Why would those groups not like those doctrines?

In a word – pride.

The lazy Laodicean “christians”  and the various cultists all have this fantasy of “working their way” through the Tribulation. Many have told me when discussing it that they want to “pay Jesus back” for His FREE GIFT of salvation. Imagine such a thing, paying Jesus back! First of all, if you somehow could “pay Jesus back” in the Church Age, you would immediately lose your salvation because it would stop being a free gift. But they don’t stop to consider finer points like that.

Secondly, cultists love to trap their followers in a system of works because that’s how they exercise control over them. It makes me laugh when people tell me they are “Torah observant” and they are “keeping the Sabbath”. No such commands were ever given to any Christian ever, and never will be. Paul says we are FREED from the keeping of the Law for salvation.

“Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?” Galatians 4:21 (KJV)

I hope this study of Scripture has helped to shed some light on how works are connected with salvation in the time of Jacob’s trouble, and why that is not the case in the Church Age we are currently in. Please click on the links below and read the studies found there to further amplify what has been taught here.

May the Lord richly bless YOUR study of His glorious word!

The True Identity Of The Ten Virgins From Matthew 25 Revealed And It Just May Shock You • Now The End Begins

Everything about the parable of the Ten Virgins points to a future time where God will again be dealing with His people, the Jews. They are waiting for a King who will bring in a Kingdom. It will have its fulfillment in the time of Jacob’s trouble, where faith + works will be the doctrine of the day. The Two Witnesses and the 144,000 will be preaching from books like Hebrews and James, as well as the “constitution of the kingdom” found in Matthew 5-7 (KJV).

Everything about the parable of the Ten Virgins points to a future time where God will again be dealing with His people, the Jews. They are waiting for a King who will bring in a Kingdom.

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.” Matthew 25:1-4 (KJV)

The standard lazy Laodicean wrongly divided interpretation of the Ten Virgins is that it represents Christians who are prepared by their good works to meet Jesus at the Second Coming and those who have “no oil”, lacking in good works, and are thus unprepared. This is the position of the a majority of Church pastors in our day. And it misses the mark by a mile and a half.  So let’s take a look and see if we can figure out who these Ten Virgins might be, and what event they are waiting for.

Understanding the kingdoms

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.” Matthew 25:1 (KJV)

Everything you need to know about who these virgins are is contained in the first six words of the very first verse. Here the Holy Spirit is directing your attention to people who are looking for a kingdom on Earth, and not a spiritual kingdom in Heaven. Where else have we seen people waiting for a kingdom? Oh, that’s right, here..

“When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?” Acts 1:6 (KJV)

The non-Christian apostles were looking for a kingdom on Earth as well, and they almost got, too. Had the Jewish people not rejected the preaching of Stephen in Acts 7, Jesus would have returned then and brought in the Kingdom Age. But after they stoned Stephen, the “window in Heaven” closed back up, Jesus sat back down, and it was “hello, Church Age!” just two chapters later when Saul was knocked for a loop.

“And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God. Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man’s feet, whose name was Saul.” Acts 7:56-58 (KJV)

So we know that the Ten Virgins will have their “moment in the sun” during the time of Jacob’s trouble, after the Rapture of the Church. These Ten Virgins are not Christians and they are not in the Church Age.

One chaste Virgin is not many virgins

Secondly, the Ten Virgins are not Christians because Christians nowhere are represented as “virgins”. The Bride of Christ, the Church, is ONE chaste virgin who will be presented on “that day” to the Lord by the apostle Paul. Right now I can hear people screaming, “it’s not true! how can he say that?!?” But au contraire, snowflakes, it be true.

“For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 11:2 (KJV)

‘Nuff said…moving on.

Some of the lamps lose their oil

Thankfully, and amazingly, Christians in the Church Age are “sealed unto the day of redemption”, and can never, ever lose their salvation. They can lose rewards at the Judgment Seat of Christ, but their salvation and entrance into Heaven is never in doubt once they become born again. But these Ten Virgins in Matthew 25 are not as fortunate. They all started out with full lamps of oil, but a full 50% fell by the wayside and were denied entrance into the marriage when the Bridegroom arrived.

“Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.” Matthew 25:11,12 (KJV)

How can this be? It’s because in the time of Jacob’s trouble, an element of works is connected with their salvation. All Ten Virgins have faith, but half of them “lost their oil”. In plain words, their works failed and then they failed. In Revelation we are told that the people in the time of Jacob’s trouble must keep the commandments for salvation. A Christian does not have to do this.

“Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” Revelation 14:12 (KJV)

Why do you think Jesus tells the people in the Tribulation to “endure to the end”? Because if they don’t endure to the end, they die unsaved. This is never the fate of a born again Christian in the Church Age.

The son of man and the son of God

Another really huge clue is contained in verse 13, where it talks about the “Son of man”.

“Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.” Matthew 25:13 (KJV)

Nearly every place in the Bible where the term “Son of man” is used, it is either a reference to the nation of Israel or Jesus dealing with the Jews in the Kingdom Age. Never is the term “Son of man” used to refer to Jesus dealing with Christians in the Church Age. To put it another way, the Son of man goes with the kingdom of Heaven, and Son of God goes with the kingdom of God. And not to confuse you, but you will notice the term “Son of God” also used early on in the gospels because until Acts 7, the Jews stood in line to receive both kingdoms. After the stoning of Stephen, the kingdoms were split with the kingdom of Heaven going to the Jews way into the future after the Church Age, and the kingdom of God to the Church.

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20 (KJV)

The Son of man is He who returns at the Second Coming for the Jews. The Son of God is He who calls His Bride out at the Rapture of the Church! It’s the same Jesus, but represents two different dispensations.

“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;” Titus 2:13  (KJV)

Some final thoughts on the Ten Virgins

Everything about the parable of the Ten Virgins points to a future time where God will again be dealing with His people, the Jews. They are waiting for a King who will bring in a Kingdom. It will have its fulfillment in the time of Jacob’s trouble, where faith + works will be the doctrine of the day. The Two Witnesses and the 144,000 will be preaching from books like Hebrews and James, as well as the “constitution of the kingdom” found in Matthew 5-7 (KJV).

These virgins are going to a marriage, but the wedding ceremony has already taken place. They are not the Bride, they are guests and servants. How do we know that? The good Dr. Luke has the answer.

“Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.” Luke 12:35-37 (KJV)

You will take careful note that the people here in Luke 12 have their “lights burning”, as do the virgins in Matthew 25. Not only that, but Luke says when “their lord arrives”, it is after having been at the wedding. Did you catch that? By the time the Ten Virgins meet the Bridegroom, the wedding is all done and they did not attend nor were they even invited.

The parable of the Ten Virgins, rightly divided, is an excellent lesson in dispensations and Bible doctrine. It clearly shows the difference and division between the Kingdom Age and the Church Age. And it clearly shows a Pretribulation Rapture that removes Christians from off the Earth before the time of Jacob’s trouble begins.

Hope it’s a blessing to you.

As Their 70th Anniversary Of Being Regathered Approaches, Is The LORD Preparing To Visit Israel? • Now The End Begins

We believe that the blooming of the fig tree officially began when Israel was regathered back in their own land after nearly 2,000 years of dispersion. This was the first formal regathering but it will not be the last. The one that the Bible has in view ultimately is the final regathering of Israel at the end of the time of Jacob’s trouble when Jesus returns to vanquish the Antichrist and his evil hordes at the Battle of Armageddon.

On May 14, 1948, two minutes after midnight, the nation of Israel was officially regathered according to Bible prophecy. The fig tree of Matthew 24 was blooming after two millennia of dormancy

“For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.” Jeremiah 29:10 (KJV)

On May 14, 1948, in Tel Aviv, Jewish Agency Chairman David Ben-Gurion proclaims the State of Israel, establishing the first Jewish state in 2,000 years. In an afternoon ceremony at the Tel Aviv Art Museum, Ben-Gurion pronounced the words “We hereby proclaim the establishment of the Jewish state in Palestine, to be called Israel,” prompting applause and tears from the crowd gathered at the museum. Ben-Gurion became Israel’s first premier.

In Matthew 24, a chapter devoted almost exclusively to the Jews in the time of Jacob’s trouble, Jesus gives a really important time clue. He says that when we would see the “fig tree in bloom”, a reference to the nation of Israel, that that would be the official start of the end times, or last days mentioned throughout Bible prophecy.

“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.” Matthew 24:32, 33 (KJV)

We believe that the blooming of the fig tree officially began when Israel was regathered back in their own land after nearly 2,000 years of dispersion. This was the first formal regathering but it will not be the last. The one that the Bible has in view ultimately is the final regathering of Israel at the end of the time of Jacob’s trouble when Jesus returns to vanquish the Antichrist and his evil hordes at the Battle of Armageddon.

THE BIBLE BELIEVERS GUIDE TO UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE RAPTURE AND THE SECOND COMING

When the fig tree bloomed again in 1948, is started a minimum 70 year time period that, when finished, will have included the great falling away of the Church, the end of the Church Age in the Rapture, and the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble. As I write this article on the 23rd day of April, 2017, we are roughly 13 months away from the 70th anniversary of the regathering of Israel. 70 is a very important number in the Bible, and in Bible prophecy in particular.

We have already shown you that it is no coincidence of any kind that Donald Trump was 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old on his first full day in office. Not only that, we also showed you the importance of Trump’s campaign promise to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and how that could possibly trigger the war mentioned in Psalm 83.

But before we continue, it’s important to remind ourselves first of the following:

  • THE JEWS WERE REGATHERED IN UNBELIEF: At the time, in 1948, newspaper headlines made many references and allusions to Old Testament scriptures about God regathering His chosen people, and for a brief period the people who were fresh off of Hitler’s Holocaust gave the God of Abraham the glory. But it didn’t last long. Today, hospitals in Israel perform late-term third trimester abortions, and Tel Aviv is considered the premier LGBTQP capital of the world, eclipsing that of San Francisco and Greenwich Village in New York City. The Boston Globe calls Tel Aviv “the gayest city on Earth“. Israel celebrates what God destroyed both Sodom and Gomorrah for, let that sink in for a moment.
  • THE JEWS STILL REJECT THEIR MESSIAH: In the book of Romans, Paul weeps over the lost condition of his Jewish brethren, and wishes he could somehow get them to see that Jesus is the promised Messiah of the Scriptures. In Israel today, there is a growing number of Messianic believers, but the overwhelming majority reject the claims of Jesus.
  • THE JEWS WILL FOLLOW THE ANTICHRIST AND BUILD HIM A TEMPLE: In 2 Thessalonians chapter 2, Paul shows us that after the Rapture of the Church, the Antichrist is revealed in what is called the “strong delusion”. Not only that, Jesus in Matthew 24 directs us to Daniel 9:27 (KJV) and shows us the Antichrist sitting in the rebuilt Third Jewish Temple.

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT THE COMING THIRD JEWISH TEMPLE WILL SHOCK YOU TO YOUR CORE

All that now leads us to May 14, 2018, the 70th anniversary of regathered Israel:

Please note that this article is in no way setting a date for the Rapture of the Church, or a date for the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble. But it is presented to show you some very real possibilities for the fulfillment of Bible prophecy in the very near future.

The prophet Jeremiah in chapter 30 and verse 7 makes a reference to something he calls the “time of Jacob’s trouble”, which is the same thing Jesus mentions in Matthew 24 when He talks about the coming time of “great tribulation”.

“Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.” Jeremiah 30:7 (KJV)

But just one chapter before that, Jeremiah mentions something that immediately preceded that, a visitation from the Lord after 70 years. Historically this is talking about the Jews in Babylonian captivity, but is also a prophecy of the Jews in the time of Jacob’s trouble in the end times.

“For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.” Jeremiah 29:10 (KJV)

It is interesting to note that in the book of Revelation, Jesus says that in the time of Jacob’s trouble Israel will be like “Sodom and Egypt”. (Remember the Boston Globe article calling Tel Aviv the “gayest city on Earth”?)  They have turned so far away from the LORD that this is how God now views them.

“And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.” Revelation 11:8 (KJV)

But Revelation also directs our attention to spiritual Babylon that has now trapped the Jews just like physical Babylon did in Jeremiah’s day.

“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:4,5 (KJV)

So I ask you, those of you who are Bible believers and understand that there is much prophecy yet to be fulfilled, is it possible that sometime around the 70th anniversary of the regathering of the nation of Israel, could the LORD be planning to once again visit Israel and His chosen people the Jews?

two-witnesses-of-revelation-time-jacobs-trouble-now-end-begins-end-time-bible-prophecy-pretribulation-rapture

WHAT IS THE POINT OF PUTTING THE BODY OF CHRIST INTO THE TIME OF JACOB’S TROUBLE?

If so, then wouldn’t that of necessity place the Rapture of the Church before that visit? Yes, it would. The Church has no place in the time of JACOB’S trouble, it is Israel’s final refinement according to the Bible.

“Hear this word that the LORD hath spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying, You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.” Amos 3:1,2 (KJV)

The 70th anniversary of regathered Israel is 13 months away, and there are only 3 possibilities for what is mentioned in this article. It is possible that 1). some of it could happen, 2). none of it could happen, or 3). all of it could happen.

Are YOU ready for what comes next?

UK National Union Of Teachers Says LGBTQ Lifestyle Be Promoted To Children Starting At Age 2 • Now The End Begins

Delegates at the union’s national conference in Cardiff on Monday voted for its members to teach about ‘LGBT+’ issues and lifestyles to toddlers starting from nursery school. Teachers bemoaned a “lack of policies which promote LGBT+ within schools”, which they allege has a “significant negative impact” on the well-being of students and teachers who are homosexual or transgender.
national-teachers-union-nut-uk-promote-lgbtq-two-year-olds-hate-crimes-transgender

Transgender lifestyles and same-sex relationships should be ‘promoted’ to children as young as two to reduce hate crime, the National Union of Teachers (NUT) has said.

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.” Romans 1:26,27 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: For starters, it is very appropriate that the acronym for the National Union of Teachers is NUT, these people are out of their mind. But it reveals the global agenda of recruiting children to bolster the ranks of the LGBTQ seeing as recruitment is their only avenue for growth. 

Delegates at the union’s national conference in Cardiff on Monday voted for its members to teach about ‘LGBT+’ issues and lifestyles to toddlers starting from nursery school. Teachers bemoaned a “lack of policies which promote LGBT+ within schools”, which they allege has a “significant negative impact” on the well-being of students and teachers who are homosexual or transgender.

It was revealed last month that primary schools will likely be legally obliged to teach pupils about same-sex couples as part of the mandatory relationships curriculum that is due to begin from 2019.

But the NUT says the amendment to the Children and Social Work Bill doesn’t go far enough, calling for “age-appropriate content” on the subject at an even younger age, and for secondary school pupils to be taught more about safe sex in gay relationships.

Kevin Courtney, NUT General Secretary. Speech to Annual Conference. Cardiff 2017

NUT executive committee member Annette Pryce slammed a “right wing, religious lobby”, which she blamed for having prevented ministers from proposing a more “inclusive” agenda for sex education.

“Generations of young LGBTQ people who have been failed by the system are still not told explicitly in the law that their lives are important too,” Pryce said.

They urged ministers to make proposed sex and relationship education (SRE) “inclusive” to so that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students “are told explicitly in the law that their lives are important too”.

Hitler knew that recruiting children at an early age was critical for growth of the movement:

As you watch this video on Nazi indoctrination of children, simply replace ‘Nazi’ with ‘LGBTQ’ and you will see why all despotic groups must recruit young kids in order to grow.

“It is high time that PSHE and SRE – including LGBT+ education – is recognised as an essential part of the school curriculum,” NUT general secretary Kevin Courtney told the conference.

“It is important for a modern forward-thinking society to understand and embrace differences within our communities.

“The alternative is many pupils being isolated, bullied or misinformed and, for many, there is an impact on health and well-being that can last well beyond school years,” he warned.

While teaching sex and relationships is not compulsory for nurseries, it is thought that NUT members working in daycare facilities for two to four-year-olds could introduce it voluntarily.

The Church of England announced that they support the introduction of statutory sex education in schools, and Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has previously said that children should be taught to “revere” and “honour” LGBT people despite the Church’s centuries-old teaching that homosexual acts are a sin.

Chief executive at Christian Concern Andrea Williams, however, argued that teaching sex and relationships education (SRE) to four-year-olds would be “devastating” and risks “robbing them of their innocence”. source

A State Of Palestine Has Never Existed Anywhere In The Middle East Ever In World History

palestina

Under the Ottoman Empire (1517-1917), the term Palestine was used as a general term to describe the land south of Syria; it was not an official designation. In fact, many Ottomans and Arabs who lived in Palestine during this time period referred to the area as “Southern Syria” and not as “Palestine.”

by Geoffrey Grider December 30, 2016

After World War I, the name Palestine was applied to the territory that was placed under British Mandate; this area included not only present-day Israel but also present-day Jordan.

“They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.” Psalm 83:4 (KJV)

There has never been a nation known as Palestine ever in the history of the world. Nations have governments, armies, currencies, laws and everything else. Palestine is the mythical “ghost nation” created by modern-day Muslims in an attempt to try and undo and destroy the legitimate Jewish state of Israel that has existed for the last 3,500 years.

So let’s take a look at the origins of the word ‘Palestine’ and see if we can begin to make some sense out of it

Though the definite origins of the word “Palestine” have been debated for years and are still not known for sure, the name is believed to be derived from the Egyptian and Hebrew word peleshet. Roughly translated to mean “rolling” or “migratory,” the term was used to describe the inhabitants of the land to the northeast of Egypt – the Philistines. The Philistines were an Aegean people – more closely related to the Greeks and with no connection ethnically, linguistically or historically with Arabia – who conquered in the 12th Century BC the Mediterranean coastal plain that is now Israel and Gaza.

There has never been a land called Palestine:

A derivative of the name ‘Palestine’ first appears in Greek literature in the 5th Century BC when the historian Herodotus called the area “Palaistinē” (Greek – Παλαιστίνη). In the 2nd century C, the Romans crushed the revolt of Shimon Bar Kokhba (132 AD), during which Jerusalem and Judea were regained and the area of Judea was renamed Palaestina in an attempt to minimize Jewish identification with the land of Israel.

Under the Ottoman Empire (1517-1917), the term Palestine was used as a general term to describe the land south of Syria; it was not an official designation. In fact, many Ottomans and Arabs who lived in Palestine during this time period referred to the area as “Southern Syria” and not as “Palestine.”

After World War I, the name ‘Palestine’ was applied to the territory that was placed under British Mandate; this area included not only present-day Israel but also present-day Jordan.

Leading up to Israel’s independence in 1948, it was common for the international press to label Jews, not Arabs, living in the mandate as Palestinians. It was not until years after Israeli independence that the Arabs living in the West Bank and Gaza Strip were called Palestinians.

The word Palestine or Filastin does not appear in the Koran. The term peleshet appears in the Jewish Tanakh no fewer than 250 times.
