"For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures."
The restoration/reclaiming of Israel and Jerusalem after 70 years from 1948 This "law" is much more than just a "law", it is the law again as it once was. What a time to be alive to see this. Titus 2:13
Thank you, Gary, for watching this process closely and for bringing it to our attention. Even though I was aware of it, I didn't grasp its importance. I believe now that this represents a huge turning point. I remember from many years ago when I was a baby in Christ a sort of joke we told each other. But the joke was serious as well as amusing. We reminded each other not to ask God for patience because He would bring on us tribulation. Why? Because the Bible says tribulation worketh patience! It seems to me the leaders and people of Israel never heard that joke. By choosing to set themselves apart from the world and put themselves under the law of the Scripures, they have officially given God permission to begin a huge work. It opens the door for Him to officially turn His focus on earth away from Christians and back onto the Jews. And the only way to do this is to remove those "in Christ" out of this world. By taking us home He can give the Jews His official attention, and with this comes tribulation. I knew God was about to bring end times events to earth but I didn't see this pathway as a key. Thanks again for bringing this to our attention!
EnochWalked: For example, perhaps Netanyahu will be able to secure the passage of a law granting him immunity (or otherwise dropping the multiple indictments against him), but at the expense of agreeing to a Peace Deal that sells out Israel. Hard choices ahead.

EnochWalked: If it really came to that, then a good leader would face the charges (even if they were completely fraudulent) for the good of his people, but that sort of self-sacrifice is rare. twitter.com/RaoulWootliff/status/1174054654046588928

mike: EW - this deal will bring judgment upon US and Israel. We know it has to happen. Lord have mercy on us, your people

EnochWalked: mike: True, we need to be praying for mercy right now. It's sort of bitter-sweet that the recent signs we're seeing are ones that remind us of not just how close our escape is, but how deserved the punishment will be for the wicked world not saved in time.

EnochWalked: I was re-reading Revelation chapter 9 today (the fifth trumpet), and felt that there were interesting parallels with chapter 12. I wonder if we should think of the "smoke out of the pit" when we see these big forest fires, or the attack in Saudi Arabia.

Servant: EnochWalked: I agree. A lot of parallels. Even a little foreshadowing, like a taste of the future in Tribulation. Terrifying.

Beloved: Interesting. Gary’s theory about alien delusion holds more and more merit (using theory in the scientific sense).

Servant: Beloved: Yup. They will believe the Rapture to be some kind of alien abduction or something. Its a shame.

bernie: I like L.A. Marzulli's theory on UFOs & aliens, "when we go up, they come down."

EnochWalked: Today is a weird day, with both the (ominously named) "Global Climate Strike" and the bizarre "Area 51 Raid". Even with such events happening, the world is not prepared for what is going to hit it soon.

EnochWalked: Servant: Interesting article, thanks. This line particularly stood out, of course: "Tomorrow, all life on earth will end in fire". Regardless of the issue of the climate changing, I think Greta represents a failure of adult leadership on all sides.
