Maybe "Potentially past tribulation "aligns immanence with unitary 2nd coming. /- I had a cartoon about 50 yrs back
A guy holding charts looking up at angels blowing trumpets and a white horse treading the skies- He looks up surprised (annoyed?) " you're early"!! --
Some of us might not quite catch " the Tribulation" & AntiChrist sitting on 7 hills and think more " tribulation " is needed than what the Lord is satisfied with in His summation of prophecy.
If Christ came in a way the teachers missed the first time- may it not happen that way with 2nd ?
Rev6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
Rev14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. ... 14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
Rev16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
Dr. Rugh said or, wrote: The providence of God not only works in the selection of governmental leaders, including the worst of ones such as Nebuchadnezzar, but also in the happenings of nature. What happens is never the fault of "Mother Nature" but an event in the plan of Father God. This includes such tragedies as Hurricane Katrina, the tsunami on the west coast of Indonesia and most recently the cyclone to hit in Myanmar. There is nothing that happens by chance, even the outcome of the roll of the dice. Everything, every event is under the control of God.
We cannot understand God's infinite purposes with our finite minds. He alone is all-knowing, all-powerful with a perfect plan to accomplish His purposes. We do have a human responsibility and accountability, while living under His sovereign will and authority God.
We should be moved with compassion when tragedies take place but we must have a proper perspective about tragedies. The God who created everything continues to be active in His Creation....

I know it seems extreme, but every time a nunnery closes, a unmarked graveyard of children is found. Seriously, it parents of California haven't left by now, then they approve their circumstances and they have no problem being pagan.
You're right! Missed that lineup! Thx! Looks like the front row all left the meeting on their broomsticks...

The Whole Word Great message on a great subject. God's word is one unified revelation of himself. Particularly blessed by encouragement that Praise in God's word leads to Trust in God which leads to no fear of flesh.
Also, the exhortation that if we desire the "whole Christ", we must have the "whole word".
Pack up and move from this state. Its population depends on illegal immigration to sustain its entitlement economy and has no use for working people. Leave and start your family's life renewed by the idea that the polluted garment of California can be shed.
John MacArthur wrote: For there's going to be tribulation like the world has never seen. Now that poses for me and for you a very practical question. As a Christian do I need to get ready for that? Because if I do, then I ought to begin to do something to get ready. Now we talk about getting ready for an atomic attack and people have bomb shelters, well, if we really have to anticipate the tribulation maybe Christians ought to be stockpiling food somewhere far away from civilization centers and maybe building little bomb shelter type things way out in the middle of nowhere. Maybe we ought to be getting ready for this if, in fact, it is to be. It's a practical problem.
But on the other hand, if Jesus is going to come back to take His church out before this happens, then all we need to do is make sure we're ready for Him. In one case we're looking Jesus and the other case we're looking for antichrist. Now this has become a big debate in the church. And I say that only in reference to the theological spectrum, not in this church, I hope. And let me give you a little theological education quickly....

Hoggard comments on how they have a false "vision" in a number of SA sermons- Part of problem? Holiday from the Bible ! col2:18 "he hath not seen" -- "Colossians 2:18" "Things which he hath not seen" ESV & NIvile contradict From mss(messes) sick Printing "patent" words from a machine.
"A is not null A "-Shaefferish motto- Exposes trash found in Romanish grotto- God says " he hath NOT seen" Versus verse's lie obscene Satan says pick a "bible" based on a lotto. -- ESVile says "Let no one *disqualify you, insisting on asceticism *and worship of angels, going on in detail about visions,[a] *puffed up without reason by his sensuous mind," Footnotes: * Colossians 2:18 Or about the things he *has seen -- An unMANLy corruption- With lie of " modern speech" "asceticism" The thesaurus "patent machine" -- " Let no one" GenderNeutered - And trash can Greek contradicting 180 degrees the word of God
No wonder an evangelical group of fools looks to Jewish myths -they slosh back & forth in swamp of " no bible" slough
-- Col2:18B"intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up" Vs " visions" of "NEW"New Testament
There is a 40 year trend in SBC churches to lift off the call to repentance of sin. Many of the sermons noted, a squishy psycho babbling about lovin up on the sinners to make them feel accepted. Baptizing hundreds after a month of free meals, tee shirts, coffee cups and pens.
When Jesus returns, his wllowing fork will scoop the whole lot and cast them into utter darkness. Both the clergymen, the parishioners and those led astray and those who approved of their actions. Your holiness depends are whether you've been washed by his blood, not on your actions but through his spirit living in you.
Planet X-Nibiru doom- gloom looms 4 earth in tomb ! Filled with dread - U will b dead! Boom! Another "prophet" gets the broom. -- --mt24:44 "Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh." -- Some said it wouldn't be today because He won't come when you think He will
/- But "Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not." Luke 12:40 -- People aren't thinking , so maybe 2day?
