"And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne." (Revelation 12:5)
There were many prophecies in the OT pertaining to the coming Christ. "there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel... Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion" (Numbers 24:17, 19) and again, "But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting." (Micah 5:2) This led the wise men of the east to come to Jerusalem saying, "Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him." (Matthew 2:2) From this they knew that out of Bethlehem, from the tribe of Judah, "shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel." (v. 6)
In that day, genealogical records were readily available in the Temple. But after the Messiah died for our sins and rose again from the dead for our justification, in AD 70, the temple was destroyed with all its genealogical records. The Jews were then scattered to the nations of the world, so we could truly say from that time, the Sceptre departed from Judah, for with no certainty can any Jew prove he is from the tribe of Judah. So with this certainty, we knew that Shiloh has come, for He is the "Lion of the tribe of Judah".
"But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law" (Galatians 4:4).
And this is not hard to discern as this was also clearly spoken of the Messiah in Isaiah 53, that He "was cut off out of the land of the living", and ever so clearly in Daniel 9:27, that at the appointed time "shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself", no, not for Himself, but "for the transgression of my people was he stricken" (Isaiah 53:8).
Furthermore, this being conspired in the minds of the detractors, "that his name be no more remembered", would certainly remind us of Psalm 83, where it is written, "Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance." Here speaking of Israel, but once again, typified as Christ (Ex. 4:22, Hosea 11:1, Mt. 2:15) whom is identified as Israel, my firstborn Son whom He called out of Egypt, whom through the loins of Israel He was to come as the promised Seed of Abraham.
And Christ, foreknowing all things prophesied of this also saying, "the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again" (Mark 8:31). And again, "they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again." (Mark 10:34) And this being in their mind, we are told, "the Jews sought to kill him" (John 7:1), the Prince of life. And for what purpose? Even the ignorant Caiaphas prophesied that, "it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people" (John 11:50). And so, Christ died for our sins, He was buried, and rose again from the dead according to the Scriptures. Hallelujah!
There are so many riches and treasures and wonders hidden in the Scriptures that they are just too wonderful for me.
"...come, let us kill him..." (Matthew 21:38)

Agree with Noel.
On which part?
In addition to your lame article previously written in follow-up to your disagreement with me -- in which your level of (dis)honesty was very much on par with that of the synagogue of Satan itself (Revelation 2:9, 3:9, John 8:37-44), whom you seem wholeheartedly committed to defending right up until Christ's return -- I'm quite astounded, now, to find the following quote from you within the article you've just published, this time in response to Paul, who seems to be experiencing much the same as I in response to you and your pre-trib argument (that is, your total unwillingness to engage with any argumentation or resources, no matter how Bible-rich, which show your Zionist pre-trib position to be wholly bogus, and the result of your Zionist brainwashing emanating, as Paul says, from as far back as Darby and, as I've emphasized, that point at which Scofield took Darby's heresies and frogmarched them to the masses on behalf of that very same synagogue of Satan: "It is clear that the first gentile converts were from the house of Cornelius, eight years after Pentecost".
It seems, Noel, that you've somehow managed to miss the hugely important gentile conversion of the Samaritan woman at Jacob's well, and all those from her city, Sychar, who came in response to her testimony and, themselves, were converted after hearing Jesus' words from His own mouth:
39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.
40 So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.
41 And many more believed because of his own word
42 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.
43 Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee. (John Chapter 4)
It's both interesting and telling how you pre-trib folk are continually jumping through un-Scriptural hoops as a means to try to defend heresies of the devil and his chosen people, who, in actual fact, worship Lucifer himself. You'd know this if you were at all familiar with the Jews' Kabbalah or Talmud, those books which they hold most dear and consider most "holy", and within which they turn all Old Testament Scripture upside down and inside out as a means to blaspheme the one true Living God whom they've always rejected.
Only the relative tiny few true Jews exercise true faith in the one true God. The rest (just like Judaized Freemasons) are either consciously or unconsciously worshipping Satan himself, and doing all they can to prepare the way for their Antichrist to assume power over all the world and to set himself up as "god" in the Third Temple. Meanwhile, you're doing more than your fair share to help these serpent-beings.
I'd highly recommend (though knowing from our past conversations that you'll do no such thing) reading Texe Marrs' The Holy Serpent of the Jews. Therein you'll see a good many admissions from many world-renowned rabbis, themselves, of the indisputable truth of that which I've just written above.
That said -- and you always ignore my every attempt to state this, as it doesn't fit your continual "Replacement Theology" accusations -- in Christ there is neither Jew nor Greek (non-Jew), for we are all one in Christ Jesus. (cf, Galatians 3:28)
Which means that ANYONE (who hasn't become reprobate) is wholly free to come to Christ in faith and, thereby, receive God's free gift of salvation. In these latter days some Jews, "a very small remnant" (Isaiah 1:9), will, indeed, come to Christ. But the overwhelming majority are on their way to perdition.
But, as previously noted, you seem committed to defending them every step of the way. Just like the rest of the brainwashed Zionist "Christians" who've helped to run the whole of the world into the ground in support of the satanic Jew World Order.
The more I see of your work on this site, the more I think this project appears as yet another instance of JWO controlled opposition which honors the Lord with their lips but whose heart is far from Him:
"Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:" (Isaiah 29:13)
Just exactly as do the antichrists of today "which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan" (Revelation 2:9).
Sean, Sean, you are really going over the deep end, and getting desperate.
You keep propping up straw men that you can knock down. There is no contention that the Church consists of Jew and Gentiles today. This mystery, that has been hid in ages past is now plain to see in the Scriptures. And sure, within the church there are relatively few born again people of Jewish background, as Paul says, "blindness IN PART is happened to Israel, UNTIL the fulness of the Gentiles be come in." (Romans 11:25) But He still loved his brethren after the flesh and could say, "my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved." (Romans 10:1) In fact he would say, "For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh: Who are Israelites" (Romans 9:3-4) This is coming from a Jew, who was before a blasphemer, and condemned Christians to death, but who was saved by the tender mercies and grace of God, because "God so loved the world" (John 3:16) both the Jews and gentiles. And while all who have not yet come to saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ are enemies of the cross and of the gospel, He yet reminds us to "Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you" (Matthew 5:44).
This anti-semitic hatred that spews out of your mouth has defiled many and is rising up to condemn you. This is the same quasi-zeal that Hitler had against the "Zionists". You keep quoting Revelation 2:9; 3:9, regarding them "who say they are Jews and are not" and are in fact condemning yourself when you say, we are "the true Jews, the true Israel" (your quote not mine). The church is called the spiritual seed of Abraham, but that does not make a member of Christs body a Jew or Israel. His body consists of both Jew and Gentile. And of the Jewish tribes, they would only be considered a true Jew, as God intended them to be, if their hearts were circumcised (Romans 2:28-29).
Not sure how you can say, "your total unwillingness to engage with any argumentation or resources" when I have replied to all your arguments and have not shied away, but have wrote several papers in reply to your camp, and am in the midst of writing a paper for Paul, a commentary on Matthew 24, to show you guys how you have been mishandling the Scriptures when it comes to your interpretation of it. And those papers that I have posted links to, deal in more detail with, the seed, Pre-trib rapture, replacement theology fallacy, and I will post the link shortly to Matthew 24 with a very detailed commentary for both you and Paul, that deal specifically with these issues in more detail, and we can go through it step by step.
Now you are welcome to reply on any of those papers, whose topic is more specific to the subject we are discussing (rather than this page). But I see you can only here say they are "lame", and I question whether you have even read them, and if you did, you did not comment on them, or are you "unwilling to engage" directly and articulately (or do you only know how to post a bunch of videos from others??). I have opened up these pages for comments, for the very purpose that the saints might be as the Bereans who "searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so." (John 5:39, Acts 17:11)
Now as to your claim of the Samaritan woman. Let it first be understood, that before Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:1-4), many Gentiles could find salvation. Many in the Old Testament come to mind, Ruth, Rahab, Nebuchadnezzar, Naaman, people of Nineveh, etc. The Samaritan woman could not have been baptized of the Spirit into the body of Christ, for Christ had not yet died and rose from the dead, and ascended to His Father when He would send the promise of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. In regards to the house of Cornelius, James clearly said, "Simeon hath declared how God at the FIRST did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name." (Acts 15:14) Now if you do not believe, take it up with James and Peter. Peter needed the miracle of the vision and tongues to convince him that he should not resist the heavenly message, and so went into those dirty Gentiles to preach the gospel. Now the woman at the well may have believed, but would have been like those who were baptized of John who had not yet heard of the Spirit of God (Acts 19:1-7) or like Apollos whose thinking needed to be refined (Acts 18:24-28).
You really need to go make a serious study of Romans chapters 9-11, and quit watching the "Zionist" conspiracy crap, it is messing with your head. The kingdoms of this world and system are at the present moment under the control of Satan (Luke 4:5-6) and will be destroyed and taken back by God in due time when He returns (Daniel 2:31-45, Revelation 11:15). God is not finished with the Jews, His chosen people Israel. For the most part they have been blinded for the benefit of the Gentiles, but He will return and deal with them after the rapture of His Bride the Church (who will not go through the trial on all the earth Revelation 3:10), during the final 7 years of this present age according to Daniel 9:24-27. They shall be refined during the "time of Jacob's Trouble" (Jeremiah 30:1-7, 24, Daniel 12:1, Matthew 24:15-21), and all the rebels shall be purged (Zechariah 13:8-9), before He returns with His saints (Zechariah 14:2-5; 1 Thessalonians 3:13) to save Israel (Joel 3:1-17) from total annihilation (Matthew 24:21-22). Then shall be fulfilled all the covenant promises of God to Israel, concerning the land, Jerusalem, the Kingdom, for God cannot lie, and they shall be above all the nations, the head and not the tail, during the millennium (Deuteronomy 28:1, 13, Isaiah 2:2-4, Zechariah 8:20-23, Isaiah 66:18-22).
(PS: mouse over the Scriptures and read them, and click on them if there is more than 4 verses to get the whole context)
Now you're even resorting to the synagogue of Satan's own incessant high-pitched screams of "anti-Semitism", a libelous term which is wholly devoid of meaning, yet which is duly directed at anyone who speaks historical, or present-day, truths within earshot of those whose murderous crimes require that the other 99.8 percent of (non-Jew) humanity never hear of them, and if they do, to never utter anything about them. For example, the Jew-led Bolshevik "revolution" (actually invasion, financed and led from the lower east side of NYC) responsible for an estimated minimum of 66 million murders, of mostly Russian Christians, who were tortured, worked and/or deliberately starved to death. Not to mention the hundreds of millions more mass murdered by the synagogue of Satan by way of other ruthless Jew-instigated Communist regimes like China. Historical truths which dwarf the so-called Holocaust that the synagogue of Satan tells us we must never forget but the myth of which can only be sustained by, literally, imprisoning those brave enough to ask for forensic evidence of this supposed mass murder having been committed.
Like more such historical, as well as present-day, truths? Read Pastor Chuck Baldwin's essay, just out today, entitled "How Zionist Israel Celebrated Its 70th Anniversary":
You won't read it, though, I'm quite sure. As, were you to do so, your whole pre-trib paradigm would come crashing down, as would your unquestioning support of the blood-thirsty synagogue of Satan.
Unless, of course, you are consciously, willfully doing their bidding.
Again, you keep missing -- that is, ignoring -- the Scriptures I've provided over and over again which tell us that in Christ there is neither Jew nor Greek (that is, non-Jew). Over this past year, alone, I've presented the true faith-based gospel to many hundreds of Jews around the world, as they -- like anyone else -- need saving through the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Now why would I try to share the gospel with so many Jews if I were an "anti-Semite", not to mention that the Palestinians who are perpetually in the Jews' crosshairs (again, refer to the above Chuck Baldwin essay for many murderous details) are far more Semitic than those "which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan" (Revelation 2:9).
All to say, Noel -- as per usual -- that your false, slanderous accusations fall flat, as do your lies below, from your message above:
"But I see you can only here say they are "lame", and I question whether you have even read them, and if you did, you did not comment on them, or are you "unwilling to engage" directly and articulately (or do you only know how to post a bunch of videos from others??)."
As anyone can see who reads through my various comments left here, in response to your unquestioning Zionist pre-trib boosterism, I have provided much Scripture to articulate my straight-forward reading of the King James Bible. As has Paul. God is not the author of confusion. But, as ever, you're unwilling to look beyond your heretical and grotesquely skewed dispensationalist "reading" of the Bible, or even to study the historical roots from which your imbibed opinions emanate. Furthermore, with regard to yet another of your false accusations, I've not posted "a bunch of videos from others" as you've, once again, lied about in your above comment.
In summary, Noel, it's once again clear that you have no interest in honest inquiry, or even speaking the truth. No wonder you're so well-aligned with the synagogue of Satan whom Jesus called out so beautifully in John 8:44:
"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."
You're forgetting the holy Spirit had been around way before Jesus died on the cross. Genesis 1:1-2, luke 3:21-22 are two examples.
Paul, Jesus was around before He was born too, what point are you trying to make?
First, I have given you and anyone else so many resources that answer all the questions or opinions you put on this thread. Apparently you aren't watching them. It's hilarious to me that you accuse me of not teasing scripture and watching YouTube videos when I ashtray explained to you that through the Holy Spirit is what guides my bible study. That means I read scripture for what it says through God's lense. Not mans. With that said, I've given you and anyone reading this thread resources so you can understand what I have found to be true also. You're already so deep into dispensational beliefs you can't even see what is right before your eyes. The fact is the dispensationlist view didn't even exist before Darby started preaching it. I know some people say St. Augestine and some other people taught it before Darby but it wasn't even the same thing. The bottom line is for all who read this thread and are seeking the truth, put the dispensational view (you'll have to choose one of them because they can't even agree on which number of dispensations is accurate) side by side with the bible is written about 1 person (Jesus) for all people who want to believe in him. There is 1 plan and program that for this people who believe. Not 2 or more plans and programs for Israel and gentiles. It's a simple message.
Again, lots of words and no Bible, sad :(
What is sad is you're not taking the time to watch the resources I have given you. There are tons of bible in it. Really it's only bible. So watch them and stop being so sad. It's all there for you.
In answer to your question. I was saying that pre tribulation believers talk about Jesus coming to rapture the elect (saints) before the tribulation and then he comes again to fight at the battle of armegedon. That equals 2 times. That's where I'm coming up with the two times. Meaning that Jesus comes a 2nd and 3rd time. I've heard the argument that in the rapture Jesus meets the saints in the air (clouds) so that doesn't couple as him coming to the earth. Which is a terrible argument. I would say where are the clouds then. On Jupiter. God doesn't want to confuse his chosen people (which are people who believe in Jesus btw). He just wants us to seek and we will find the common sense answers.
I am afraid you are just playing with words and have not given an answer to to even one of the points in my reply. On every point I put the Scripture to back up that point. If you want to say that Christ coming in the air for His saints (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18) and His return to earth with His saints (1 Thessalonians 3:13), when His feet shall stand on the mount of Olives (Acts 1:9-11, Zechariah 14:4) are 2 comings, good for you. But the rapture of the Church is a separate event from Christ returning to earth with His saints. If you want to really play with words, we could say He comes 4 times, and that He came twice already, once at the mount of transfiguration (Matthew 16:28; 2 Peter 1:16-18) and once at Pentecost (John 14:16-18). Your argument is just a diversion from the Scriptures and the doctrinal dissertation of the pre-trib rapture.
At the rapture, this is when the saints leave this earth. Are you saying they do not leave this earth at the rapture when they are caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air? When Christ was "raptured" in Acts 1, did He not leave earth (the same word is used for rapture of the saints; 1 Thes 4:17, Rev 12:5) ?? The Bible clearly states that the heavens open, and the saints return to the earth at the Second Coming with Christ at Armageddon (Revelation 19:11, 14).
I would say stop watching youtube and start reading the Scriptures so that you might be prepared to give an answer for yourself (1 Peter 3:15) to back up your claims.
Paul, I am wondering why post-tribbers and Pre-wrathers are so misguided, and after spending much time trying to understand why they have drifted from the way, it seems to come down to their misinterpretation of Matthew 24, in particular, Matthew 24:27-31, where they seem to think that Jesus is talking about the Church when speaking of the "elect", when in fact, the Scriptures are very clear, that Matthew 24 is in a Jewish context, speaking of Israel. I will place a little commentary on this, but please, read the Scripture references.
When Christ returns it shall be with His saints to execute judgment upon the ungodly (Revelation 19:11-21, Jude 1:14-15, Zechariah 14:1-5; 1 Thessalonians 3:13). The wicked shall be judged at the Battle of Armageddon (Joel 3:1-2, 9-17, Zechariah 12:2-3, 9; 14:1-4, Revelation 16:14-16; 19:15, Isaiah 34:1-8; 66:15-16, Jeremiah 25:29-33, Zephaniah 1:14-18). This will not be a long drawn out war. Judgment will be executed speedily. As quick as lightening flashes across the heavens, so shall their carcasses be found for the fowls of heaven. He shall slay the wicked and all the vultures shall be filled with their carcases (Ezekiel 39:17-23, Revelation 19:17-18, 21, Psalm 110:5-6; 9:17, Job 39:27-30). This shall take place at the end of the seven year tribulation, when heaven opens, when He returns with His saints, and every eye shall see Him.
When He returns, He shall also "gather together His elect" (Matthew 24:31) from the four corners of the earth. This section has become the point of contention for those who hold to the various positions regarding the timing of the rapture, and who it is that is referred to as the "elect" in this passage.
Some erringly believe this refers to the rapture of the church, because they believe that the church must go through the tribulation, and that the church has replaced Israel. Because they have listened to their false teachers, the whole of Scripture must be wrested from its plain reading.
The Scriptures are clear, that after the tribulation, at the end of "the time of Jacob's trouble" (Jeremiah 30:3-7), at the end of Daniel's 70th week (Daniel 9:24-27; 12:1), Christ will physically return to planet earth to save the remnant of Israel at the battle of Armageddon. At this time "he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." (Matthew 24:31) Much of what Jesus taught throughout the course of His 3 1/2 year ministry came right out of the Old Testament, including the above verse.
The whole of Scripture makes it very clear, that the reference to the "elect" in this passage is referring primarily to the Jewish nation Israel. The "great sound of a trumpet" marks the end of Daniel's Seventieth Week and the Time of Jacob's Trouble. First we must understand, Jesus said that Israel "shall be led away captive into all nations" (Luke 21:24). This happened in the first century.
Moses stated on this wise, "the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee. If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee: And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers." (Deuteronomy 30:3-5)
The prophet Isaiah said the same, "And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth." (Isaiah 11:11-12)
Furthermore, Isaiah said, "And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall beat off from the channel of the river unto the stream of Egypt, and ye shall be gathered one by one, O ye children of Israel. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the Lord in the holy mount at Jerusalem." (Isaiah 27:12-13) For the elect's sake, the days are shortened (Matthew 24:21-22), and the remnant who were marked for annihilation by Antichrist and "ready to perish", are willingly gathered at the sound of the trumpet, and Christ shall gather Israel, as a hen gather's her chicks under her wings, and they shall finally cry out, "Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord." (Matthew 23:39)
This is what Jesus said, "he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." (Matthew 24:31) You cannot miss the language, Both Moses and Isaiah were speaking of Israel. Jesus also is speaking of Israel. God calls Israel "mine elect" (Isaiah 45:4, 17). He even gave the nation their surname even though they have been disobedient. They had followed other gods and many of them were secular at this time in Isaiah. But He still calls them "mine elect". Why should we think they are no longer His elect? In Matthew 24:31, Jesus is quoting Old Testament prophecies about Israel to Israel. I don't see how this can be redirected to mean the Church. Context is key. If we do not compare Scripture with Scripture and keep it within context we will never get it.
