You can post a scripture quote these days without comment or opinion, and start a melee with some.
I hear you! I just scroll on by most of it. My head hurts trying to decipher some of the comments.
Just to clarify, I never thought JD meant for us to judge a persons salvation. I’m not qualified for that heart X-ray!
Neither am I.
It sure has…I am about it, actually.
I had to share that one thanks so much.
Our resistance is not futile in Yeshua!
Read What Comes After John 3: 16
Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.”
Please read and see things as they are!
No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man [b]who is in heaven.And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should [c]not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
“He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
Yeshua Jesus and nothing more is the only way. Your work is only to believe.
Time is speeding up the last time is now.
Romans 14:1 Accept other believers who are weak in faith, and don’t argue with them about what they think is right or wrong.
4 Who are you to condemn someone else’s servants? Their own master will judge whether they stand or fall. And with the Lord’s help, they will stand and receive his approval.
10 So why do you condemn another believer? Why do you look down on another believer? Remember, we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. (paraphrase)
thank you for this
That and 1 Corinthians 10 and Ephesians 5 should all be required reading for EVERY Christian every week.
Well… The Kings of the East will make their way across the Euphrates river at some point.
@Raininggrace I relate to this so much. The people at the church will engage with me about it, but the pastor avoids it–and I was openly rebuked by a pastors wife at another church for talking about it.
I think people are avoiding it because it’s not what they want to hear. I think it’s also fulfilling prophecy–not wanting to listen to sound doctrine.
2 Timothy 4:3
New International Version
3 For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
Avoiding the signs of the “end of the world” in favor of just preaching easy topics–yes we need all of the gospel, but this is pretty relevant. It needs to be in the sermons, I think.
Very similar experience across the board; the anti-pre-trib rapture content by Christians is ever-growing. It’s almost shocking how much intense pushback, aggressively so, without any prompting often, there is against the concept of the rapture. Many ministries I appreciated have begun aggressively pushing anti-rapture or anti-pre-trib rapture content in the last few years. It is the most bizarre thing I’ve seen, that as the end times wind down and the things happening point ever more towards the rapture…Christians are pushing back harder against it. They are making jokes about it and those who believe it. It’s in step with anti-Semitism and anti-Israel sentiment growing in the church.
That, in itself, was a kind of proof for me.
But I’ve often referenced this, and here is the link to the playlist:
If you have doubts, if you think there’s no scriptural support, if you think there’s no Christian tradition, if you think the idea of the rapture was invented in the last few hundred years, if you’ve been convinced or seriously shaken by the no-rapture or no-pre-trib rapture believers who have lots of followers and a platform…start watching those videos. He’s still going, still teaching. It’s not a completed series. If, at the end of it all, you are still convinced. That’s fine. But Pastor Andy Woods has done his homework and presents it clearly, down to the very last detail and question raised against the rapture.
I’m about 40 videos in. I’m convinced of the pre-trib rapture. In my own study, in looking up what he says, and as I talk to the Lord about it all.
I started watching that series over the weekend and it brought me back to earth – for the time being!
Have you guys seen this!? BTW Much love to Pastor JD and the church all the way from California!
The conditioning to use your right hand or forehead to gain access into places is popping up more and more…
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

I have found this to be very true. I go with a church team to evangelize most weeks and we do a survey. 1) How would you describe yourself spiritually? spiritual, Christian, atheist , etc. 2) Who do you say Jesus is? 3) If you believe in an afterlife how do you get there. You would be perhaps astounded by the number of self proclaiming “Christians” that cannot answer #2 and the number that believe salvation is by works/being good. It is so predominant today even in Protestant denominations that it is unbelievable. So, never assume. And, God is really opening hearts to hear about the Gospel now.
So share the whole Gospel and God’s truth about salvation. After praying, if God gives you opportunity with friends etc, you could say “can i ask you some questions about your faith”? (and use questions above for example. You could share your faith story /ask about their faith journey… different ideas. Sometimes I just give people the ABCs in stores when checking out because there is not time for conversation. In any event, people need to hear the whole Gospel:))) Using gentleness and respect (and I am sure patience and wisdom goes a long way for all of this in these times). Praise be to God for His Word!!!

OK, so I haven’t read the posts about fungus, yet, but I am reminded just how DIFFICULT it is to get rid of fungus. What a horrible nightmare. Now, I suppose I should read.
Like what Pastor JD said before: Mask is to show unvaxxed.
If you’ve seen any of the recent videos of magnets sticking to people’s arms after they’ve been vaccinated, you might be wondering: Are there magnetic nanoparticles in those vaccines?
A study published in the National Library of Medicine in 2014 proves that “superparamagnetic nanoparticles” are successfully delivered into the body via vaccines, and once in the body, they can be used to inject DNA into cells, altering their genetics.
