      Please do not get me wrong.  I voted for Trump, he did a lot for Israel and the US.  I suggest you watch the full 19 minute interview with Mondo Gonzales of prophecy watchers and Bill Koenig.  The shorter versions cut too many key points out.  After viewing that, I believe you will agree that the following information may not be just a coincidence.

      1/28/20
      Trump / Kushner Peace Plan to Divide Israel
      The Trump / Kushner peace plan clearly drew a map and proposed the division of God’s land.  God’s Word clearly states:  “Divide MY land and I will divide yours”

      3/8/20
      40 days – The length of time God gave Ninevah to repent, a time of testing

      3/9/20, next day (after 40 days) was Purim
      Stock Market Plummets all week
      Covid hits with closures / Covid has divided us All

      5/27/20
      120 days (3) 40 day periods   (3) being an important number for God
      This was 2 days after George Floyd’s death, riots begin & we are divided on race

      11/3/20
      280 days (7) 40 day periods     (7) being the number for God
      Election Day – Trump loses and we are all divided politically
      What are the chances that (7) 40 day periods falls right on election day?

      3/15/22
      777 Days – the Signature of God
      Precedence:  On 9-29-2008, the Dow dropped 777 points after we attempted to strong arm Israel into surrendering its heartland.
      Per Dr David Reagan, “it was as if God signed it with His own hand.”

      3/16/22, the next day will be Purim – just like it was in 2020.
      Coincidence?  Can all of the above be just coincidences?

      I like that day. On the Enoch calendar the next day, 3/17 is Nisan 1.  Besides, it is sooner than Pentecost!

        Since this is hypothetical and the Lord would have brought in the fullness of the Gentiles but I had the ability to extend my stay here or move on I would definitely push the button! What I have waiting for me on the other side is so indescribabley beautiful and lovely and I cannot wait to get there, so YES! I would (as they say in the south) mash that button.

          I understand what you mean … to be in an environment where its always peaceful and pure.  And to feast your eyes on the awesome beauty of the scenic views not ruin with trash on the roadside.  The rivers, streams, lakes, waterfalls, ocean all pure water and not polluted with contaminated toxins.  I think heaven is going to be like the Garden of Eden  only it has golden streets/pathways with gem walls and the big pearly gates!  Seeing all the trees, bushes and flowers always in bloom … especially the daisies out in the field.   And being able to eat freely from the tree of life delicious tasty fruit and I’m hoping for street vendors or various shops … hamburgers / hot dogs / pizza / tacos/ ice cream, chocolate candies/candy apples, buttered popcorn or caramel/Cracker Jack, etc, Italian / French pastries and breads and can’t forget the jelly donuts!!!   Mmm mmm good. :whistle:

              Jelly doughnut trees seem too fantastical to believe, IMHO. :wacko:

              Peanut Butter M&M fruit trees, however. ;-)

                :mdrmdr: :mdrmdr: I can just see us now picking the tiny little M&M’s — one for you, two for me, one for you, etc….. I wonder if you can just harvest it like they do Almond trees? AS my friend who owners a “Almond” farm once told me they are Almonds until they shake the “L” out of them to get amonds :mdrmdr: :mdrmdr:

      As much as I would love to push that button, I know it’s best left in the Lord’s hands.  I have many unsaved loved ones and even though they don’t seem to be interested in coming to Jesus, I don’t want them to face the horrors of the Tribulation.  As long as we’re still here, there’s hope that they may change their minds, especially as they see the day of His appearing approaching.

      If what has happened will happen again, Purim would be a great day for God to rescue His people by defeating the Iranians. Then they could say “Peace and Safety”…. and we could leave.  Lord, please draw our unsaved loved ones to you so they may escape with us.

      I would push the Rapture button. I think of all the times I shared with my 95 year old aunt; and my 78 year older sister. I think both fit in to these points below. I think it comes down to Choice! We chose Christ. The Lost have not, though they are able to see there is a Creator, in what He has created. But the resistance goes on. I might be feeling a bit down because of my sister’s last rejection a couple days ago – it is so sad! But, she’s made her choice. This choice; All her life. This is how it is with many. There is Life, and resistance! Last night I felt a “letting go.” She is in my prayers still, and God’s hands, but I have made my Choice, and I want to move on. :heart:  

      The Danger of Procrastination

      The Holy Spirit Calls Today
      Today if you hear his voice, harden not your hearts Heb 3:15
      The day of grace is still open for each one
      The Savior pleads
      God’s Holy Spirit calls
      The Spirit of God seeks… convicts, warns, strives

      The Bible says, “Seek ye the Lord while he may be found; call ye upon him while he is near” Is 55:6. And in another place, God says, “My Spirit shall not always strive with man” Gen 6:3

      “There’s a line that is drawn by rejecting the Lord,
      where the call of the Spirit is lost;
      as you hurry along with the pleasure-mad throng,
      have you counted, have you counted the cost?”

      The Heart Constantly Gets Harder:
      The child has a tender conscience that grieves over sin. The child is easily moved by the fear of punishment. The child knows that it is dangerous to go on in sin. But one who continues in sin, and ignores the call of the Spirit of God, will find that his heart becomes calloused and hardened.

      One reason why the great majority of those who are saved have been saved in childhood and youth, is simply because the child has the advantage of a tender heart…But one who continues in sin, and ignores the call of the Spirit of God, will find that his heart becomes calloused and hardened and accustomed to sin…The longer you wait to give your heart to Jesus, the more difficult the decision will become. The heart becomes a little more calloused every time you say “no” to Jesus.

      The Growing Nearness of Christ’s Coming:
      There is not a single event prophesied in the Bible which must come to pass before Jesus returns.

      The Uncertainty of Life/The Certainty of Death:
      Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appears for a little time… James 4:13–14

      As for man, his days are as grass, as a flower of the field . . . the wind passes over it, and it is gone. Ps 103:15-16. Your life—which seems so well established and so important today—is really only like a fragile blade of grass.

        This is a very good point.

        I would say that anyone who enters the Tribation will have rejected the free gift of salvation multiple, multiple times. They, by their own choice, will enter the most awful period of humanity in Earth’s history.

        So, while I will leave the button pushing to God the Father, I can also appreciate the desire to push it, as well. :good:

          Arthur, I agree that people in the U.S. and Canada have probably had many chances to accept Christ’s gift of salvation.  But, folks in other countries, I’m not so sure.

            We westerners definitely have absolutely no excuse, I agree. We can go to practically any bookstore and buy a Bible and read it, free from persecution. We have all been raised in at least a nominal Judeo Christian heritage.

            As for other countries, God is working powerfully there. Through dreams, visions and overt miracles, at times.

            Ultimately, no one will stand before God and say they got a raw deal. God is perfectly Just.

            I read a book that I really enjoyed called Eternity in their Hearts by Don Richardson. It deals with that topic very well, IMHO.

              Back in the 1970’s there was a Christian musician named Keith Green who was very outspoken for Christ yet he would not evangelize in the United States because he felt we were already too spoiled. The Gospel was everywhere and no one had an excuse. So he evangelized overseas.

        Kolleen, this is true. I used to think that as people got older, they would realize that their time left on earth was short and they would accept Jesus as their savior.  Now, I know that their hearts get hardened.  I have a friend who always thought religion was a take-it or leave-it option.  She is very nice, a “good person.”  I have spoken to her about this several times, and once she replied, “Well, maybe when I get very, very old.”  Now she is 97, not healthy, and living in memory care far away.  I had given her a Bible, but she doesn’t know where it is.  I phone her every week, but she has no interest in spiritual things and just wants happy talk.  It’s sad.

      The four tips of my fingers on my left hand are calloused and hardened from playing guitar for so many years. In the beginning, pressing those tender fingertips against the steel strings onto a hard fingerboard was very painful until they calloused and hardened and now I could press them against a razor blade until they bled and I would barely feel it. Our hearts are no different. I heard it said once from a pastor that it usually takes a catastrophic event to open most peoples hearts once they reach a certain age. But with God all things are possible.

        Yes, all things are possible. It’s just the conversation I will no longer have with my Aunt or sister. I put them in the Lord’s hands for the outcome. I do wonder what our loved one’s will say to us in Heaven, if they make it through the Tribulation. Not as an I told you so – none of that in Heaven – but just a desire to know what their thought might be when they realize what they never believed, was true.

      I agree salvation is in the Lord’s hands to preserve those who are going to be saved. My dad was next to the youngest of 11 kids.  Back in 2002 we made a trip to Missouri so he could visit some of his siblings/their off spring and to attend his high school reunion party. I was amazed the majority of his high school class were still alive since I knew a few in my high school and in college that died in their 20’s and early 30’s.  So at his reunion dinner party they each were given a chance to share testimony of their life … the popular speeches were who they married, how many kid, grandkids, great grandkids, where they ended up living, what jobs they had,  but he was able to also share his faith and testimony.  Afterwards one told him his aunt (just turned 100 yrs old) and was still alive … he got the address and went to visit her that night.  She answered the door and she wanted Jesus!  Then not to long after that visit we heard she died.  So Jesus kept her alive all those years to hear.  What is cool is she was also the midwife to birth him.

      I heard the story of a couple that lived in South East Asia that had been married for probably close to 100 years. They were both around 116. They watched the Jesus Film together and accepted the free gift of Salvation.

      Almighty God preserved them for that long just so they could hear the Gospel message in their language and come to faith. :good:

      I also believe our prayers mean a lot for the unsaved.  They seem to get more chances to hear the Gospel whether by their blood relatives or believers who are strangers that cross their pathway.

      When we visited California in 1980 my dad saw a few of his older sisters at their homes.  One was Kathryn.  I was so impressed by her display of 3 tier variety of chocolate candies and nuts.  A kids dream was sitting in front of me on her coffee tea table and she said “help yourself” so I did!  :whistle:

      My dad also wrote his siblings at Christmas and shared his faith and included a Bible Tract.  He prayed her whole family would get saved.  That Christmas Kathryn’s only daughter Kathy … left her abusive Mormon husband and was hiding out at her home. Kathy saw the Christmas card and letter and read the Bible tract and became a believer that day!  Then back in 2012(?) I was opening up a can of Planters variety nuts and I immediately thought of my dad’s sister Kathryn and felt compelled to pray for her salvation.  Then a few days later I received a letter from Kathy informing us her mom had passed away.  I got in touch with Kathy to asked when that day was she died?  She told me and it was the same day I prayed in the kitchen while opening up the nuts.  So we are hoping her mom did accept Jesus before her last breath.

      Patricia, my aunt and sister are like that, nice and good people. I do wonder if it’s those very traits that keep them self-sufficient, never sensing any need for anything more.

      Geri, I am amazed at my high school classmates too! They were just so Nice back then! There is only one that I know for certain is a christian, and possibly a couple more. Those facebook friends disappeared after we were clearly at opposite ends. What a wonderful encounter with your Dad’s aunt just before she passed! God perfect timing and divine connection!

      Prayer is everything. :bible
