    It is!
  5. The chronological order of end time events

    2nd Thess 2:3 says: Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, what is is saying there, in specific sequence is that the apostasy and revelation of the man of lawlessness comes first! Now, there is something, referred to as "it" in that verse, that therefore happens after the revelation of the man of lawlessness, if Paul is to be believed. What is this "it"? We need to back up to see what Paul is referring to in the previous verses: 1Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, 2that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. You can make up any sequence you like, and believe what you imagine. However, Paul specified that the revealing of the man of lawlessness happens before the coming of our Lord, and our gathering together to Him, is that not the rapture? In 2nd Thessalonians, Paul is calming their fears, apparently the Thessalonians had received some sort of letter supposedly coming from him that got them upset an worried (reading from the context). Paul reminds them that he had previously addressed all this, so they should not be shaken. What had Paul previously said? Well, following in one thing: 13But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope. 14For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus. 15For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16For 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. 17Then 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. 18Therefore comfort one another with these words. Again, the living Christians are caught up to be with the Lord, caught up together with the Christians who had already passed on, caught up together to be with Jesus when He descends from heaven, caught up to be with them in the clouds, meeting them in the air. Is this not also, a description of the rapture? So, according to Paul, and he says it is according that we say this by the word of the Lord, that the dead in Christ, rise first, the living to not preceed the dead in Christ, so again, there is a specific sequence. So far we have noted that 1. the the apostasy comes and the man of lawlessless is revealed 2. and after that, the gathering of the dead in Christ 3. then the living Christians fo to join them all meeting Christ in the air. This rules out the possibility that the rapture is pre-tribulation, unless the apostasy and revelation of the man of sin, is also pre-tribulation. So the question needs to be asked, are these events before the tribulation? When the dead in Christ are raised, what do we know about that in sequence with other things, than might be helpful to understand. Dead people raised to life, is there a word for that? Like resurrection perhaps? In Revelation 20, verse 5, we see the phrase: "This is the first resurrection" What are there any details about that? Sure are! In Rev 20:4 we see these illuminating details: 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 those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. Now THAT is chronologically loaded! Full of relevant information. There we see dead people in heaven. We can see that they are there, because they were beheaded, so we know how they died. We also see why that happened to them: because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God Their testimony of Jesus, identifies them as Christians. The fact that they would not worship the beast or his image, and that they had not received the mark on their hand or forehead, provides us the info to show that they were in the tribulation. Now, what is still missing, is the timing of this resurrection, we do know that these people were in the tribulation first, and so these people are not raptured pre-trib, it is not possible. Of course, there is nothing here that conflicts with what Jesus said, and Paul might have been referring to what Jesus said (like to his disciples in Matt 24) when he was pointing this things out. For example, Jesus said not to be deceived, and that He would return to gather the elect, using the same sort of language that Paul used (shout, angels, clouds, trumpet). The order that Jesus gave was pretty specific also, but He said this things happen " immediately after the tribulation of those days". If these dots are properly connected, then the sequence likely is: 1. The 70th week of Daniel begins 2. In that 7 year period, the man of lawlessnless is revealed 3. likely that is mid-week, and then the great tribulation of about 3-1/2 years (according to Jesus) is on 4. immediatey after that, the Sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light, the stars will fall 5. then the Son of Man will appear in the sky and be seen by all, coming on the clouds 6. the dead in Christ will rise in the 1st resurrection and meet the Lord in the air 7. then we (Christians) who are alive at that time, will be raptured (post-tribulation) to join the dead in Christ, made alive again and we will be changed (1 Cor 15:51) 8. Then we shall always be with the Lord. Comfort one another with these words. It might be proper to call the rapture "the Blessed Hope", but I think Jesus is our Blessed Hope. I believe, that according to scripture, a pre-trib rapture is just a false hope, and not a blessing at all, just a big disappointment for those expecting it. Remember, the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. 2 Tim 4 I have wondered, and asked before, if we think that the time of refreshing should be considered to be any time before the tribulation. Maybe you do not know what I am referring to. The idea comes from the book of Acts, chapter 3: 19“Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; 20 and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, 21 whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time. A pre-trib rapture is a pleasant thought, but it is foreign to the pages of scripture. I am not saying that that are not verses and passages that people interpret to imply a pre-trib rapture, certainly there are. What I am saying, is that there is no verse or passage (that I have noticed anyway), which requires such an interpretation, nor specifies such a sequence. Of course, you are free to believe what you will, and ones belief on this topic, does not make one a heretic, nor a grounds for division.

  6. Romaine Lettuce Dangerous?

    https://www.cdc.gov/ecoli/2018/o157h7-04-18/index.html Clipped from the original source (link above): Based on new information, CDC is expanding its warning to consumers to cover all types of romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona growing region. This warning now includes whole heads and hearts of romaine lettuce, in addition to chopped romaine and salads and salad mixes containing romaine. Do not buy or eat romaine lettuce at a grocery store or restaurant unless you can confirm it is not from the Yuma, Arizona, growing region. Unless the source of the product is known, consumers anywhere in the United States who have any store-bought romaine lettuce at home should not eat it and should throw it away,
