The End Times Pretribulation Rapture
The Rapture will be the most startling event of this Age and Dispensation. As it is to occur in the twinkling of an eye and all over the earth at the same time, that part of the world that is not asleep will witness the event. As to the "Shout of the Lord, " the "Voice of the Archangel, " and the "Trump of God" we do not know whether their sound will be heard and distinguished by others than the "dead in Christ" and the "living saints." We know that one day the Father spoke to Christ in a voice that He understood, but the people who stood by mistook it for "thunder."
When the Lord appeared to Saul of Tarsus on the road to Damascus and spoke to him, the men that journeyed with him stood speechless, "hearing a voice, " but seeing no man, and not understanding what was said.
We know, however, that the dead in Christ will hear the sound, for it will be "intensely penetrating. There will be no graves so deep, no catacombs so rock covered, no pyramids or mausoleums so thick, but what the sound shall reach their depths and the "dead in Christ" shall hear the cry awake ye sleeping saints and arise from the dead, it is MORNING, the morning of the FIRST RESURRECTION."
(Quoted from Clarence Larkin's great book
The Rapture, which the Bible says will occur
right before the End of Days, or the Last Times, is very close to happening, even as you read this.
End Times Bible prophecy is very clear. Read Matthew 24, and hear in the words of Jesus the things that must occur at the End Days, during the Tribulation.
End Days, the Last Time, the Time of Jacob's Trouble, the Great Tribulation, these are all different names and terms for the same period of history, in which we now find ourselves.
NTEB exists to bring you the very latest developments in the world of end times bible prophecy. Is this truly the end times spoken of in the bible?
Read the bible, read the news, and you tell me how close we are to the end times.
The Rapture & the Second Coming Are Two Seperate and Distinct Events
The Bible describes two separate and distinct future events, both of which are often described as the Second Coming. The first event is what Bible scholars call the Rapture. In 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, the apostle Paul writes that "the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord."
In this passage, Paul is describing an event in which Jesus Christ will not physically, literally touch down on the earth but will first come "in the clouds" and snatch away His true followers from the earth in an instant of time. Those who have not chosen to follow Christ, those who have not been born again, will remain behind on the earth and will have to go through a terrible time of wars, famines, natural disasters, and divine judgments known as the Tribulation.
The second event occurs at the end of the Tribulation. This is when the Bible teaches that Jesus will physically, literally return to earth, destroy His enemies, and set up His own righteous government based in Jerusalem. He will reign on earth for one thousand years. In Revelation 19:11-20:6, the apostle John writes, "I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself.
He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God...
He will rule [the nations]...And he laid hold
of the dragon, the serpent of old, who is
the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, and he threw him into the abyss... And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God...and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years... Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection...They will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years." Joel Rosenberg

Chick-Fil-A Banned From Opening New Restaurant In Denver International Airport
One of the first things you see when you pull up to it is a giant, angry blue horse in the attack position whose eyes glow devil red at night. They have aptly named him Blucifer. The sculptor of this evil creation was killed after Blucifer fell on him, crushing him to death instantly. This is the mascot of the Denver Airport. Is it any wonder to you now why they have soundly rejected the proposal of Christian restaurant company Chick-fil-a to open a store there?
The popular fast-food chain is currently facing a political roadblock in Denver, Colorado. The city’s council has moved to delay Chick-fil-A’s request to lease a location within Denver International Airport (DIA) due to members’ concerns with the company’s stance on same-sex marriage.
Beware Of The Rising Cult Of End Times Churchianity
As Satan continues to lull the body of Christ to sleep in the last days before the end of the church age and the catching away; the corrupt fruits of counterfeit bibles, perverted gospels, and unclean spirits have come full harvest in an emerging cult that I personally refer to as “Churchianity”.
Churchianity is a counterfeit and perverted form of Christianity that covertly epitomizes humanism with a sort of ‘build-a-bear’ Jesus attached.
12 Events That Will Occur In September That You Should Know About
Despite all the hoopla surrounding the month of September regarding Bible prophecy, we here at NTEB do not see it as particularly important. However, jammed into the space of roughly 15 days, there is a ton of stuff going on that we would like to bring to your attention. What it ultimately will turn out to be remains to be seen, but in our job as a watchman on the wall, we are blowing the shofar and giving you the heads-up.
How Hollywood Predictive Programming Broadcasts Coming Events
Whatever you call them - New World Order, the Illuminati, Bilderbergs, CFR - they are all the same and all seek to achieve the same purpose.
A One World Government led by a single individual is exactly what the Bible said would take place in the end of time. Our time. What all these groups are doing is setting the stage for the coming Antichrist who will deceive the whole world and force them to take his mark. Their favorite medium of communication for broadcasting clues about their plans is the Hollywood media industrial complex which has been producing Predictive Programming "entertainment" for the past 50 years, laced with more clues than you could shake a stick at. Today we are going to look at a few of these and let you decide for yourself.
Images Of Devastation After Massive Chinese Explosions Reveal A 'War Zone'
According to the latest report from Xinhua, following the series of enormous explosions at an industrial area in Tianjin, at least 44 people were dead including 12 firefighters, with at least 520 injured, 66 of which in critical condition.
"The fireball was huge, maybe as much as 100 metres tall," said 27-year-old Huang Shiting, who lives close to the site. "I heard the first explosion and everyone went outside, then there was a series of more explosions, windows shattered and a lot of people who were inside were hurt and came running out, bleeding."
Goddess Kali, Hindu God Of Death And Destruction Projected On Empire State Building
The Times of India reports today that "In a breathtaking spectacle, Goddess Kali was projected on the Empire State Building in New York." For those of you not familiar with the Goddess Kali, she is the Hindu god of death and destruction.
The name of Kali means black, time, death, lord of death; she is therefore called the Goddess of Time, Change, Power, and Destruction. She is known as the "Black One", or the "Dark One". We wonder if perhaps this is not an Illuminati message of coming events soon to take place?
5 Birthmarks Of The Christian: How To Be Certain Of Your Salvation
The first is the birthmark of confession, described in 1 John 5:1: “Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.” Before you can have assurance of salvation, you have to believe and be saved.
You have to confess Jesus Christ as Lord. Some people assume they are saved because they grew up in a Christian culture, or they have gone to church all their lives, or they have been baptized, or they have tried to live a good life. Yet they’ve never distinctly and personally confessed Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.
Hillsong NYC Church Has An 'Engaged' Openly Homosexual Couple Leading The Choir
Hillsong Church in New York City attracts over 7,000 energized worshippers every week. It's pastor, Carl Lentz, has a half-shaved head, ripped jeans, is covered with tattoos and draws a celebrity audience of people like Justin Beiber and NBA star Kevin Durant.
When it comes to the topic of same-sex marriage, however, their official position is shrouded in half-answers and obfuscation. But one thing is quite clear: they allow an openly and unrepentantly gay couple to lead their choir.
If The Confederate Flag Has To Come Down, Then So Does The LGBT Rainbow Flag
As the Progressive Left continues it's chokehold on the US Constitution in general and on the American people in particular, the watercooler debate is now raging over the Confederate flag's ability to remain flying in the South and wherever else people choose to display it. So let me just start by saying that the Confederate flag is not a "symbol of hate", it is American history like it or not. The irony here is that the flag represents a time which saw deep divisions in this nation along many lines, the very same divisions that Obama and Company have been so successful in reactivating in 2015.
There is another flag that is as equally hated, if not more so, than the Confederate flag and flies in a whole lot more places, the LGBT Rainbow flag. Like the Confederate flag, it represents a vast minority of our population. Statistics show that less than 5% of people in America claim to be gay, lesbian or some mixture thereof. The LGBT Rainbow flag is popping up everywhere you look, and it does not apply to nearly 95% of the country yet no one is calling for it's removal. Why not? because we are a FREE SOCIETY in which a Constitution, a Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence allows for freedom of speech and expression. But free speech and expression is something very much despised by Obama and the Left.
The Vatican Wants The Temple Mount Taken From The Jews
When the pontiff John Paul II ascended to the Temple Mount in 2000, Judaism’s most holy site, he wasn’t welcomed by Israeli officials, but by representatives of the Palestinian Authority, and the holy complex was bedecked in Arab flags. It was the Pope's implicit recognition of Islamic hegemony. It was taken to mean that Islam and Christianity superseded Judaism and have the right to “inherit” its holy places.
The Catholic de-legitimization of Israel passes through the war on Jerusalem and the war on Jerusalem passes through the Temple Mount. The site where the Jewish people worshipped for hundreds of years and the focal point of every practicing Jew’s prayers is under assault from the Vatican.
Christians Must Brace Themselves For The Coming Persecution In Obama's LGBT America
Rod Dreher, writing in an article in Time Magazine, has this to say about the recent US Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage: "LGBT activists and their fellow travelers will be coming after social conservatives. The Supreme Court has now, in constitutional doctrine, said that homosexuality is equivalent to race.
The next goal of activists will be a long-term campaign to remove tax-exempt status from dissenting religious institutions. The more immediate goal will be the shunning and persecution of dissenters within civil society."
If You Were To Die Tonight, Would You Be In Heaven Or Hell?
Meet Frank Jenner, a simple man with a profound question. It was 1941 at the height of WWII when Frank heard God call him to approach 10 people per day on the streets of Sydney Australia and politely ask one simple question: “If you died within 24 hours where would your soul be in eternity, Heaven or Hell?”
One man, standing on George Street in Sydney, Australia, impacted the lives of tens of thousands of people over his 26 years of preaching the gospel on the street. He spent his time handing out tracts and asking people his one, simple question.
Our Top 5 Reasons Why Matthew 24 Cannot Be Talking About The Rapture Of The Church
In the 24th chapter of Matthew, the apostles come together to ask Jesus about His return, which we know to be the Day of the Lord, and the end of the world. Jesus, as it turns out, has plenty to say on this subject and uses no parables. He tells them plainly what will happen in the time of the end. Many Christians, who love to apply the entire New Testament to the Church alone, read this chapter and try to make this about the Rapture of the Church. But that will not work, Matthew 24 is not about the Church which didn't even exist on the day that they asked Jesus these questions.
Matthew 23 ends with Jesus talking about His Second Coming, and Matthew 24 continues this exact same theme so we have harmony with the context. In our earlier article on the Rapture of the Church, we explained the difference between the Rapture and the Revelation. If you have not yet read that article, please do so before proceeding with this teaching on Matthew 24.
The Bible Believer's Guide To Understanding The Differences Between The Rapture And The Second Coming
There is an old adage that says "things that are different are not the same". As Christians, we have a nasty tendency to read everything from Matthew to Revelation and try to apply it all to the Church. This will not work, because all the New Testament is not written to the Christian Church.
So we see many Christian churches today, who do not rightly divide their Bibles, are teaching their people that there is no difference between the Rapture and the Second Coming. They say that these are one and the same event. But we will show you conclusively in this article that, because of the manifold differences between the Rapture of the Church and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, that it is impossible for them to be the same event.
A Charismatic New World Leader Appears From Nowhere And Takes Control Of Greece
His name is Alexis Tsipras, he has taken rock-star control of Greece, is backed by George Soros, has formed alliance with Russia and is talking with Pope Francis about a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians. We thought you just might want to know about it.
"The Pope and I discussed the need for peace to return on earth, for the immediate cease of war interventions...and I asked him to take an international initiative for the termination of conflicts in the Middle East..." Hmm, now who does that sound like to you?
NASCAR Legend At National Prayer Breakfast Tells Obama “If You Don’t Know Jesus, You’re Going To Hell.”
Sitting just feet away from the President, former NASCAR driver and hall-of-famer, Darrell Waltrip, gave his Christian testimony to an audience that included the Dalai Lama.
Waltrip said “If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior … you are going to hell.”Waltrip spoke about how Jesus transformed his life. He told the audience that before he was saved, it was all about him. “I did everything to satisfy me,” he said.
The Allah Of The Quran And The God Of Bible Are Not The Same
Let's look at the God of the Bible and Allah. It's important for us to be able to explain the truth to others, when so many are being deceived. First of all, our God is a Triune God. Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The worst sin a Muslim can commit is called Shirk. Shirk is the belief that God has a Son. It is the unforgivable sin in Islam.
12 Shocking Proofs That Disaster Strikes America When It Mistreats Israel
1991 31 October –The Perfect Storm: A very rare huge storm starting in the north Atlantic, moving east to west This storm was so unusual and contrary to “mother nature” it was immortalized by the book The Perfect Storm by Sebastian Junger and later a popular movie.
Interestingly, one of the first places The Perfect Storm hit was Kennebunkport, Maine. Waves over 30 foot demolished the home of guess who – President George H. Bush, the instigator of the Oslo Accord.
Berlin To Build Very First Temple Of Chrislam For One World Religion
Today's bombshell is the natural next-step in the evolution of the One World Religion - a temple to call their very own. And where better to build that abomination than in the city that is most famous for introducing the world to Adolf Hitler and the Holocaust but in Berlin, Germany.
They are calling it the House of One, and it is just that. The world's 3 major religions under one roof where they will, at first, worship in separate compartments within the the complex, but then all come together to find that oh-so-elusive "common ground" that Rick Warren is such a fan of. If no one ever told you the secret to boiling a live frog in a pan of water without it first jumping out, go look it up. There is much wisdom there.
40 Mind-Blowing Quotes From Barack Hussein Obama On Islam And Christianity
In his own words: Here are 20 quotes he has made about Islam, and 20 quotes he has made about Christianity. Nothing edited or mashed up, just exactly in the context he originally spoke them in with fully-sourced links so you can see where they come from.
If after reading this, you still think he is not a Muslim, then there is something organically wrong with your ability to reason and understand simple words written on the level of 6th grade English. You may remain ignorant, but it will be willingly so.
For starters, Selah is an actual, literal place that still exists to this day. We read about the geographic location of Selah in 2 Kings 14: "He slew of Edom in the valley of salt ten thousand, and took Selah by war, and called the name of it Joktheel unto this day. " 2 Kings 14:7
So we see that the believing Jews will be flown into a pre-prepared place in the wilderness for a 'time, times and half a time', or three and one-half years as foretold by the prophet Daniel. We believe that in this red rock city of Selah Petra is where God will hide the Jews while the Antichrist installs himself in the rebuilt Temple as if he was very God himself.
"For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the thingsdone in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men;" 2 Corinthians 5:10,11a
Christian, one day either by your death or by Rapture, YOU will stand before the Lord Jesus Christ at the Judgment Seat. YOUR works for Him will be tried in the fire. YOU will receive rewards based on whichever of YOUR works make it through the fire. If TODAY was your last day on earth, are you ready to meet Jesus and test your works? It is our fervent hope and prayer that this article will help you to do just that.
"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gavethem me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and myFather are one. " John 10:27-30
In Christian circles, the topic of eternal security is a hotly-debated subject. But we are not so much interested in man's opinion as we are in what the bible has to say about Eternal Security. So any sincere treatise on eternal security must first start with a look at salvation, and how it is accomplished.

The Awful Reality Of Hell You Don't Have To Go There
