Worthy To Escape? A Teaching That Some Believers Will Be LEFT BEHIND Because They Were Bad.
This is not a rapture timing video but covers the lies that some are teaching that we must strive to


Tom's Journal.

We Christians wish that we could reach the stubborn ones with the great news of the Gospel and salvation-- but for the most part it just will not happen.  Go figure that the 'Greatest Teacher' of all time could not change the minds of most religious leaders and scoffers when He was on earth in His ministry!   And persecution comes with the territory, so we ought to grow a thick skin and deal with reality.  'Our is not to ponder why-- our is but to do or die.'  

Below is some help that may help us in our ministry to convince and reason with those who honestly want some facts about my pet subject, the Rapture.  Israel looks all alone with big bullies surrounding it with large armies, but all forget that God is on Israel's side ready to protect them!  Once Israel wins the battle/ war with her mean neighbors-- a new era will begin with the old Mosaic Law code and animals sacrifices being reinstated, etc.,  and then there will be NO reason for the Church to remain on earth-- thus the Rapture!  That is why we should have a sense of urgency.  Do not be caught unaware when that day comes-- do not be 'left behind!'

Well, I am finally 'seated' in the new VA hospital in North Chicago with a new doctor and many tests and evaluations.  I am very anemic, losing blood somewhere and scheduled for a G.I. procedure, and many other things.  My BP is very low too, and the doc is worried. So I am taking more new pills to build up my blood level, iron, etc., and have promised to comply with the doc.  It's easy to get lost at the new place in North Chicago.

It's also getting darn cold in WI lately! Brrrr.  I am walking a bit better after 3 whole months of mending, and just paying my bills-- kind of lonely here all alone with just the dog for company.  I hope the cleaning lady comes today to help me with the house.

Warm Regards,

I was once asked if the word "Rapture" was in the bible. The answer is yes.

I Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be CAUGHT UP together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

The words “caught up” come from the Greek word harpazō

ἁρπάζω Harpazo (har-pad'-zo);
Word Origin: Greek, Verb, Strong #: 726

1. to seize, carry off by force
2. to seize on, claim for one's self eagerly
3. to snatch out or away

"Rapture" is an English noun derived from the Latin verb rapiō, with a literal meaning of "I catch up" "or "I snatch" (from the infinitive form of the verb rapere, "to catch up" and is the same word in Latin as the Greek word harpazō.
