The Rapture theology is the only one that fits. In Revelation the first three chapters are all about the seven churches, After John is told to "come up here" there is no mention of any church or even Christians. Everything is about the Jews and what happens to them or what happens to Babylon and the world as punishments.
Christians have always believed in the end times and that they would not happen until everybody in the world was able to hear the words of Christ.
Yes there is. The word "Rapturo" would not be used in the Greek New Testament because it's the Latin word for rapture. In the Greek N.T. the Greek word is "harpazo" which means the same thing. A snatching away or catching up. I'm sorry, but Paul The Apostle spoke of it clearly before Mr. Darby came along. The two main verses would be...
1 Thessalonians 4:15-18
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up [harpazo] together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
1 Corinthians 15:51-53
Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
Gup20, boy are YOU confused! The Rapture IS taught in the Scriptures, and the Apostles taught the concept to their students, who taught it to their students, etc. The earliest extra-Scriptural teaching we have on the Rapture was written by Bishop Irenaeus — a student of Bishop Polycarp, who studied directly under the Apostle John. Here’s what Irenaeus wrote:
“And therefore, when in the end the Church shall be suddenly caught up from this, it is said, “There shall be tribulation such as has not been since the beginning, neither shall be.” For this is the last contest of the righteous, in which, when they overcome they are crowned with incorruption.”
Irenaeus teaches a “pre-wrath” Rapture, and this is the position held by the Church for a very long time.
In that case the church will go thru the tribulation witch is the wrath of God in earth. The bible say that Jesus delivered us from the wrath of God. Read the book my friend.
1 Thessalonians 5:9
9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

I quit listening to and watching Hannity a few weeks ago because it’s nothing but a Trump love fest continually. It’s hard to believe that someone I thought was a Christian and a conservative is completely fooled by Trump fever. Trump is antithetical to everything Christians and conservatives hold dear. Hannity should be exposing trump for the left-wing fraudster he is, but instead he has got his head shoved so far up Trump’s real estate mogul that he can’t see the forest for the trees.
Are you a conservative or just a cruz lover? Are you voting for Hillary or are you for a conservative-choose a side and be loyal to it. I don't ;like trump either but I will vote for him over jillary because she or bernie are a disaster!
I GUESS YOU'VE NEVER HEARD OF SALVATION AND BEING TRANSFORMED BY THE POWER OF GOD AND THE WORD OF GOD. IF NOT, YOU SHOULD SEEK OUT THE TRUTH INSTEAD OF JUDGING SOMEONE FOR THEIR TYPE OF SPEECH OR WHAT THEY USED TO DO.

There is nothing about an audit that would stop Trump from releasing his tax returns. The only reason not to release your tax returns if you are under audit is if you know the auditor will find something and you will have to file amended returns. If Trump thinks his tax returns are honest and accurate, he would have no problems releasing them while he’s being audited.
He doesn't release them because his attorneys told him not to. What doesn't make sense is that the IRS has his tax returns from whatever year periods they are looking at. I suppose they must be looking at the working papers to figure out if the totals used in the return are actually accurate numbers.
In any case, if there were interesting items the IRS would know about it.
As for charity,just because you give doesn't mean you will claim it on your tax return. So, even if Donald gave $20 Million to charity, the media will spin it, oh well $20 Million is only some percentage of his total net worth -- So obviously Trump should be able to give more.
Who the hell is it anyone's place to say how much a person should donate with THEIR money?
It happened with Obama, Biden, Clintons, Mitt Romney --- the media spins it to be negative NO MATTER what the number is.

This article is horrible. First, both Trump and Clinton should be in prison — Clinton for the email server and Trump for a thousand reasons, not the least of which is the fraud that was Trump University. It is precisely this “vote for the lesser of two evils” mentality that has given us the establishment in both parties… inevitable candidates who never go away and amass more and more power. Here is the thing — Republicans DESERVE to lose if they put up bad candidates like McCain, Romney, and Trump. This losing will cause them to re-think who they are, and hopefully come back to the conservative base.
As far as Supreme Court Justices.. there will be little difference between Clinton’s picks and Trump’s picks… so it makes no difference if we vote for the lesser of two evils. Do we want Socialism (Clinton) or Fascism (Trump)? That’s no choice at all.
You say Trump has expanded the Republican party, but you fail to see it’s actually a net loss. Trump has invited more of the left in and pushed conservatives out. The result of Trump is a smaller, less inclusive party that is much less distinguishable from the Democrat party. You say “welcome to the democrat party” and I agree — Trumps actions are turning the Republican Party INTO the Democrat Lite party.
Trump’s conversion to Republican is practical because he’s running out of time to run for president (70), and he knew he couldn’t beat Hillary for the D nomination. He is still a progressive at heart.

Trump is an embarrassment for the USA in the whole world. The whole world was watching this debate and he brags about the size of his penis. The only way the size of his junk is relevant is if he’s laying out his plans to screw over America and the world.
Little Marco started that silliness, yet Trump gets blamed for it according to the Beckerheads.

I think the last question Oreilly asked Trump (which is not on this video) was an even bigger bomshell… He essentially got Trump to admit why he became a Republican. Trump said the reason he decided to run as a republican was because he thought he could win. The implication was that he couldn’t win as a democrat presumably because he couldn’t beat Hillary Clinton! It also got me thinking… he’s probably done the math in 2012 and figured out that he would be 80 years old by the time Obama and Hillary were done. If he was going to take a shot, it had to be now and it had to be as a Republican. Trump’s “pivot point” to being a republican was out of practicality, not out of philosophy. His views on abortion and guns are the result of him changing to be what he needs to be to win the election, not because of a change of heart.
Remember, Trump's mancrush, Slick Willie, called him in April to discuss a run. If The Donald can't win, he'll run interference to make sure Slick gets in the White House again. The Donald said Slick was the best president of the last 40 years and that our economy does better under democrats.
How many candidates you think run in a race they think they can't win?
How about this. He ran in the Republican race knowing Republicans want a WINNER
to rid ourselves of the no voice in congress, pee on the people crowd which happens
to be all of them both Dem and Republicans.
He gains both sides with his "philosophy". First, nothing is going to happen with abortion
regardless who is the winner.
Second Trump cannot infringe on the second amendment. Besides, he carries.
Practicality has nothing to do with his age.
Now is the time for all good people to come to the aid of their country.
He has volunteered.

I want Rubio to drop out and coalesce behind Cruz, but this line of reasoning that Rubio’s mirroring of Trump style rhetoric is anything but logical is absurd.
Trumps arguments all boil down to “well your just a big dork.” No adult makes the petulant, childish arguments Trump makes. However, the sound, logical response is to say “no you’re the biggest dork ever!” The responder has won the argument, vacuous as it may be.
The fact that Hannity and the rest of the panel haven’t caught onto the fact that Rubio is mirroring Trumps arguments and responding in kind in order to expose all of Trumps arguments as petty and childish is troubling. Hannity is clearly holding Rubio to a higher standard than he holds Trump. Rubio is exposing that.
I like Carson’s idea and have thought, since the 2012 debates, that Republican candidates attacking each other instead of the Democrat candidate , was a very, very bad idea.
A winning strategy, if winning for the people was the objective, would be to team up, agree on a platform and campaign AGAINST the opposition party not each other.
However, after watching most of this selfish group willingly stab each other in the back on a daily basis, I am convinced none of them are really concerned about seriously damaging the Democrats, but just want to play to their own enormous egos.
Politics in America today is not about doing the right thing for the voters, or teamwork and integrity, it is about every man or woman for themselves.
God help our children and grandchildren!
Here in Minnesota (and also seems to be happening in Wisconsin) if you sign up for the local Obamacare exchange — called MNSure — and your income falls below a certain poverty threshold, and if you are over 55, you get put into the Minnesota Assistance program (MA) and the state puts a lien against your estate for the amount of the subsidy the state pays for your free healthcare. Some of the people in the article I link to above were seeing liens of $30,000 or more per year being placed on their estate. You are not allowed to pay it yourself, and you are not allowed to pay the lien before you die. They literally prey upon the poorest people.
In any state, if you are under age 65, you are under federal guidelines when you receive state medicare services for long term care.
Which you can be financially responsible for, unless you are permanently and totally disabled.
The questionnaire asks about real estate, oil and gas, mineral leases. Stocks, bonds. Anything the now predatory HHS commission can seize through the IRS.
So that's what 1 or 2 states are doing. That is not a federal policy if so few states are doing this. The only free health care is through Medicaid, otherwise the ACA subsidies never pay 100%. The idea being that people are paying for their health insurance. This is how employer subsidized health insurance works, except that employers subsidize everyone's premium whereas policies sold over the exchange have a sliding subsidy based on income.

I would rather see Carson as Secretary of Health and Human services or as Surgeon General. Or what about Secretary of the VA?
Where Trump says he’s going to go to Washington and become the establishment. What you fail to realize is that TRUMP was the establishment as a donor… as a giver. He was the special interest money behind the back room deals and special pork projects that we all hate so much about Washington. He was the guy buying favors and getting people to compromise their values and support his pet projects that lined his pockets.

Ben Shapiro makes a great point about this as well. He asks “When have [evangelicals] ever supported an unrepentant, pro-planned-parenthood, adulterous strip club owner before?”
He lists several things he is NOT asking God for forgiveness for:
1. He can’t name a single Bible verse
2. Trump said he’s never asked for God’s forgiveness
3. Brags about his “experiences with women – often seemingly very happily married and important women.”
4. Cheating on his first two wives (never mind that he’s twice divorced!).
5. Supporting partial birth abortion
6. Trump said “Often times when I was sleeping with one of the top women in the world I would say to myself ‘Can you believe what I am getting?”
7. Saying “you know it really doesn’t matter what they write as long as you’ve got a young, beautiful piece of ass.”
8. Saying “if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
9. Saying “you have to treat women like ****.”
10. Opposing a constitutional amendment to end same sex marriage.
11. Saying he wont take moral sides between Israel and the Palestinians
12. Trump has casinos which exploit and encourage gambling addictions
13. Trumps casinos have strip clubs in them (Trump therefore is a strip club owner)
14. Trump casino serve a lot of liquor exploiting alcoholism for profit (that’s not in the video, but it should be said).
While I don’t support Donald Trump, and wont vote for him in the primary or the general election (unless he picks a staunchly conservative running mate), I wouldn’t question his faith. I see no evidence or fruit in his life for faith in Christ, but I’m not his judge in the matter, and only God can know his heart so it is a foolish endeavor to try to guess what he feels in his heart
For me the issue is one of trust. I can’t look at Trump’s life or record — which has been entirely liberal and progressive — for concrete evidence that he’ll do as he says. He’s had a couple of years of being a Republican, but in that time hasn’t done anything (besides donate money) to promote conservativism or conservative causes. In fact, his donations look the same (he donates to both Republicans and Democrats) now as they did when he was an unapologetic progressive democrat.
He says all the right things… but he continually contradicts himself. For example, during the last debat he said “you can never believe anything you hear on Telemundo” and literally 30 seconds later to answer another question he said “I love Telemundo.” Which am I to believe? He takes both positions on the issue. Another example is on government funding healthcare (like Canada and Scotland). I think many people look for the good sound bite, and so when a candidate takes both positions on an issue you are eventually going to hear what sounds good to you… but can we trust it? No, I don’t think we can.

What is more concerning than the handshake is the fact that — if real — somehow the capital buildings are phasing out of reality… someone quickly act to save the building! Obviously, it’s not an actual photograph, and no one in their right mind would claim it’s an actual photograph, no more than someone would claim a political cartoon is an actual photograph.

Evolution vs The Bible is a religion vs religion debate… that’s why it never goes anywhere. Ultimately, both rely on the unobserved with faith. They both seek to explain how we got here, so by definition, both discuss the time before we were here to observe what happened.
Evolution is science. Science is based on evidence. Religion is not based on evidence, hence the reason they have to keep pushing all that “Faith” nonsense ..
Except that evolution has never attempted to explain" how we got here"...so you don't know what you're talking about.
incorrect-evolution has been proven through science-the bible's creation story was made up to explain q very complex story to primitives

I typically like Wayne Allyn Root’s articles, but I have to disagree with this one. Far from being an outsider, Trump is the ultimate insider. In the first debate Trump admitted that the way he’s always gotten business done was by giving or donating to the campaigns or causes of the politicians he needed favors from and then calling in those favors. He then stated before the Iowa caucus that the “establishment types” were starting to get behind his campaign and that they were “all people I’ve known for a long long time from when I was part of the establishment as a giver… as a donor.”
Trump brags about not needing “special interest money” as if that makes him clean. Trump IS the special interest money. Trump has sullied himself by giving huge sums of money to any politician he thought could help him line his pockets. TRUMP IS THE FINANCIER BEHIND THE DIRTY, BACK ROOM DEALS, AND IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ESTABLISHING THE ESTABLISHMENT! Trump gives to democrats and republicans alike because he doesn’t have any principles besides lining his own pockets.
Moreover, he brags about paying for his own campaign when really it’s a scam. He loaned $10 mil to his campaign… that means his campaign will have to pay that money back… with interest. Where does that interest come from? From all the regular donors who donate to his campaign. So Trump will end up not spending a dime of his own money and pocketing all of the actual donations to his campaign.

Christians don’t want to shred the constitution. In fact, the constitution was written by Christians. James Madison said “the constitution is for a moral and religious people, and is wholly inadequate for any other.” This is why democrat extremists want to destroy the constitution — it hinders their assault on freedom and liberty. One more progressive on the highest court, and we will lose our first and second amendment rights, and on our way to the fundamental Marxist transformation Obama promised.
February 16, 2016 at 12:42pm
Obama has every right to nominate, just as the Senate has every right to reject those nominations on whatever basis they choose. The job of the Senate is to “advise and consent.” The Senate, ADVISES Obama not to nominate anyone and CONSENTS to allowing the seat to remain vacant until the next president is sworn in.
Actually, given the extremist nature of democrats and the democratic platform, it is wholly logical to expect that one more liberal judge on the court will rip the constitution to shreds. It is entirely appropriate and constitutional for the Senate to act according to their oath of office and protect the constitution from being destroyed by one more liberal, activist judge seeking to progress beyond the constitution and fundamentally, radically, alter it and the country.
Extremists? Yes, look at the republican nominees. With the exception of Trump, you would thnk we were electing a preacher in chief, not a president. It's going to be very hard for a religious extremist to get elected president. The American people just don't seem to want xtian sharia law in this country. They don't mind a religious candidate, like Jimmy Carter for example, but they don't want a xtian extremist.

Don’t you think Sanders should share all his donations with Hilary and with all the Republican candidates in order to demonstrate true democratic socialism?
