Matthew 24:3-14 3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” 4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,[b] and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.
11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

WE PREACH THE BLESSED HOPE FOR THE FUTURE IN JESUS CHRIST OUR SAVIOUR
1Cor. 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: AND THAT NO MAN CAN SAY THAT JESUS IS THE LORD, BUT BY THE HOLY GHOST.
“Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.”
Rev. 14:12
Here Jesus was alluding to the fact that the Doctrine of Eternal Security WILL EXPIRE WITH THE RAPTURE
Rev. 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth:
Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them
SO WON’T YOU ACCEPT JESUS NOW AND BE REMOVED FROM THAT EVENT AND LIVE FOREVER WITH JESUS IN THE FAMILY OF GOD?
2 “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)” (2nd Corinthians 2:6)

DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:

——————————————-

THE MEANING OF THE MILLENNIUM

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/the-meaning-of-the-millennium/
QUESTION    I have the following question about the Millennium and the time there after, when Satan is released again. What is the 1000 years used for – and why does Satan get released again – is there a deeper meaning for these events … couldn’t everything just end after the tribulation?
ANSWER:    At first glance, having a 1000 year interlude between the Age of Man and Eternity doesn’t make sense. But on reflection, I think that it may be mankind’s final chance to prove himself to God.
Through out history we’ve had the evil workings of the devil to contend against, so all during the Millennium the devil will be imprisoned. Without him to tempt them can mankind behave in a manner pleasing to God?
We’ve also had the bad influence of unbelievers, so at the beginning of the Millennium all unbelievers will be taken away. Will that make it possible for man to please God?
For the last 2000 years the Lord has been absent from the planet. When He returns and takes up residence here to be their King will man be able to please Him?
Sadly, the answer to all these questions is no. Even with Satan bound, no more unbelievers, and the in person rule of the Lord Himself, there’s still enough sin in the hearts of natural man that as soon as Satan is freed, man will join him in a final rebellion against God. The Millennium is our final proof that there is no circumstance or condition in which natural man can behave in a manner pleasing to the Lord.
 

THE MEANING OF THE MILLENNIUM. FOLLOW UP

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/the-meaning-of-the-millennium-follow-up/
QUESTION    Re: The Meaning of the Millennium. If the earth is re-populated only with believers after the 2nd Coming, and if believers can’t loose their salvation, then how can the 1000 years be a final test for mankind? In fact, what you are saying is that some will sink so low, they actually will loose their salvation and go to battle against The Lord. Would a believer do that – and can believers do that?
ANSWER:    Eternal security is a blessing only given to believers during the Church Age. Following the rapture, salvation will be conditional upon obedience and faithfulness (Rev. 14:12) just as it was in the Old Testament . Remember, Daniel’s 70th Week is a return to Old Covenant conditions. That’s why a temple and animal sacrifice are necessary. My study on The Nature of Post Church Salvation explains this.
Children born during the Millennium will have to choose to be saved and will have to remain faithful to stay that way. As is the case today, some will choose salvation and others will not. What’s different is that some of those who choose salvation will fall away. As the millennium proceeds the number of unbelievers will increase until there will be enough for a massive army to be waiting when Satan is released at its end (Rev. 20:7-8).

ETERNAL SECURITY FOR TRIBULATION BELIEVERS?

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/eternal-security-for-tribulation-believers/
QUESTION    You have stated that you feel the post rapture believers will be on their own when it comes to staying faithful to their belief in Christ as their Lord and Savior. In Revelation (7: 1-9) it says that the Angel of God will put a seal on the foreheads of the “servants of God”. It goes on to show that the 144,000 from the 12 tribes (Jews) were at least part of this group, but then it moves right into discussing the “multitude” in white robes that were “serving God and The Lamb” day and night.
I believe the multitude are the tribulation Saints and that they are being included in the group that were sealed on their foreheads by the Angel of God, identifying them as “servants of God”. Also, I don’t think the gentile Christians during this period would be left to suffer the stings of these demonic creatures of Rev. 9 so they must have the seal. In summary; I believe that the tribulation believers will not be able to lose their salvation. Do you disagree with this?
ANSWER:    Rev. 7:1-3 shows the four winds being held back by four angels. Then another angel with the seal of God comes forward, telling them not to harm the land or sea until he puts the seal on the foreheads of the servants of God. Rev. 7:4 says the number of those who are sealed is 144,000 and then Rev. 7:5-8 lists 12,000 from each of 12 tribes of Israel. From this I conclude that the 144,000 are the only ones sealed. This all happens on Earth.
After that John sees the multitude, but they are before the throne of God (Rev. 7:11). That’s in Heaven, and the elder tells John they’ve come out of the Great Tribulation. The Greek word translated “come out of” applies to both location and time. In essence it means they will have been martyred and come to heaven before the Great Tribulation begins. They and the 144,000 are not part of the same group. In the first place the 144,000 are all Jews. The martyrs are from every nation, tribe, people and language.
Your concern for Tribulation believers is commendable but I don’t think it’s consistent with Scripture. Both Rev. 14:12 and Rev. 16:15 indicate Tribulation believers are responsible for remaining faithful. Matt. 25:1-13 confirms this. Eternal Security is a special blessing given only to the Church.

TURKEY’S ‘OPERATION PEACE SPRING

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
[WHETHER BY INTENT OR NOT, WHAT THIS REALLY MEANS IS THAT TURKEY WILL NOW BE POSITIONED, ALONG WITH RUSSIA AND IRAN, TO ISRAEL’S “NORTH” FOR THE GOG-MAGOG INVASION OF ISRAEL]
TURKISH ‘OPERATION PEACE SPRING’ IN NORTHEASTERN SYRIA, EXPLAINED
Turkey officially announced that it had launched a military operation in northeastern Syria. Over the past years, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and other representatives of the country’s leadership have repeatedly announced this idea. However, this time promises were turned into reality.
On October 6, the administration of US President Donald Trump released a statement saying that Turkey will soon carry out its “long-planned operation” into northern Syria. According to the statement, US forces will not “support or be involved in the operation” and “will no longer be in the immediate area”. The announcement came following a phone conversation between the US and Turkish presidents.
On October 7, US forces started withdrawing from their positions along a large chunk of the Syrian-Turkish border. US military garrisons in Tel Abyad, Tel Musa, Tel Hinzir and Tel Arqam were abandoned. US patrols in the border area were halted. The Pentagon provided no details regarding the number of troops withdrawn from the border. US mainstream media outlets mention the numbers from 50 to 100.
This US decision caused a kind of panic among leaders and members of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). They simultaneously called the US decision a backstab, asked the US-led coalition to establish a no-fly zone ‘like in Iraq’ and declared their readiness to resume negotiations with Russia and the Assad government, which they just a few weeks ago were calling a ‘bloody regime’.
Kurdish armed groups, mainly the People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Women’s Protection Units (YPJ), are the core of the SDF. The Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) dominates in the self-proclaimed administration of northeastern Syria. Ankara names the YPG, the YPJ and the PYD terrorist groups because of their links to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK). This separatist group is engaged in a long-standing guerrilla war against the Turkish state in an attempt to establish an independent Kurdish state on territory of southeastern Turkey. The PYD and its military wings pursue similar goals in northeastern Syria.
Ankara has reasonable concerns that funds, weapons, equipment and training provided by the US to Kurdish armed groups in northern Syria will later be used by the PKK in its fight against the Turkish government. 
The US-Turkish ‘safe zone’ agreement on northern Syria was designed to remove these concerns. Turkey insisted that Kurdish armed groups should be removed from the border and disarmed, or, at least, the US should stop supplying them with weapons and equipment. However, this did not happen. The peak of the US-Turkish coordination over this question was several joint patrols along the border.
By evening of October 9, Turkey had put its proxy forces on a high alert and the Turkish Air Force had bombed SDF positions near Tell Abyad, Ras al-Ayn, Kobane and al-Qamishli. The Operation Peace Spring started.
President Erdogan says that its goals are to neutralise “terror threats” along the border, establish a real safe zone and facilitate return of Syrian refugees to their homes. Besides the anti-terror declarations, one of the main points of the Turkish public rhetoric is the oppression of Arab locals by Kurdish militias.
If the Operation Peace Spring develops like Turkish operations in al-Bab and Afrin, Ankara will use its proxy groups as a first line of the ground advance and a shield for Turkish personnel deployed on the ground. Artillery, warplanes and special forces of the Turkish military will be the main striking power. Pro-Turkish sources say that about 15,000-20,000 members of pro-Turkish groups have already been mobilized. If this is true, the total number of personnel, including Turkish service-members, involved in the operation may reach 30,000.

U.S. TROOPS UNDER FIRE FROM TURKISH FORCES IN SYRIA

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
US TROOPS COME UNDER FIRE AS TURKISH FORCES ADVANCE IN SYRIA
Turkish forces faced fierce resistance from US-allied Syrian Kurdish fighters on the third day of Ankara’s offensive in northern Syria as casualties mounted, international criticism of the campaign intensified and estimates put the number of those who fled the violence at 100,000. In a complicating twist, Washington said its troops also came under fire from NATO ally Turkey.
No US troops were hurt in Friday’s explosion at the small US outpost, and the artillery strike marked the first time a coalition base was in the line of fire since Turkey’s offensive began.
US officials said the Americans have vacated the post on a hill outside the town of Kobani, and added that a large base in the town was not affected by the shelling. The officials spoke anonymously because they were discussing an ongoing military operation.
Turkey said the US was not targeted and its forces were returning fire from Kurdish fighters about half a mile from the US outpost. The Turkish Defense Ministry said it ended the strike after communicating with the US.
Navy Capt. Brook DeWalt, a Pentagon spokesman, said the explosion came within a few hundred meters of the area where US troops were.
The artillery strike so close to American forces showed the unpredictable nature of the conflict days after US President Donald Trump cleared the way for Turkey’s air and ground invasion, pulling back US forces from the area and saying he wanted to stop getting involved with “endless wars.”
The decision drew swift bipartisan criticism that he was endangering regional stability and risking the lives of Syrian Kurdish allies who brought down the Islamic State group in Syria.
Earlier, Turkey said it captured more Kurdish-held villages in the border region, while a hospital in a Syrian town was abandoned and a camp of 4,000 displaced residents about 12 kilometers (7 miles) from the frontier was evacuated after artillery shells landed nearby.
Reflecting international fears that Turkey’s offensive could revive the Islamic State group, two car bombs exploded outside a restaurant in the Kurdish-controlled urban center of Qamishli, killing three people, and the extremists claimed responsibility. The city also was heavily shelled by Turkish forces.
Kurdish fighters waged intense battles against advancing Turkish troops that sought to take control of two major towns along the Turkish-Syrian border, a war monitor said.
The UN estimated the number of displaced at 100,000 since Wednesday, saying that markets, schools and clinics also were closed. Aid agencies have warned of a humanitarian crisis, with nearly a half-million people at risk in northeastern Syria.

U.S. TO DEPLOY 3,000 MORE TROOPS TO SAUDI ARABIA: ‘EFFORTS TO PROTECT FROM FURTHER IRANIAN AGGRESSION

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
US DEPLOYING 3,000 MORE TROOPS TO SAUDI ARABIA TO BOOST AIR DEFENSES
The Pentagon said Friday it has approved the deployment of 3,000 additional troops and military hardware to Saudi Arabia, boosting the country’s defenses after attacks on its oil installations blamed on Iran.
US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper authorized the deployment of two more Patriot missile batteries, one THAAD ballistic missile interception system, two fighter squadrons and one air expeditionary wing, the Pentagon said in a statement.
“Secretary Esper informed Saudi Crown Prince and Minister of Defense Mohammed bin Salman this morning of the additional troop deployment to assure and enhance the defense of Saudi Arabia,” the Pentagon said.
“Taken together with other deployments this constitutes an additional 3,000 forces that have been extended or authorised within the last month,” it said.
Esper later told reporters that the deployments were in response “to continued threats in the region” and came after a conversation with bin Salman about “efforts to protect from further Iranian aggression.”
The Saudi prince had requested additional support, Esper said
Since May, the US has increased the number of its forces by about 14,000 in the Central Command area covering the Middle East, the defense department said.
In September, the US announced deployment of 200 troops as well as Patriot missiles to the kingdom in the wake of the attacks on Saudi oil installations blamed on Iran.
The attacks claimed by Yemen’s Houthi rebels damaged a third of Saudi Arabia’s oil infrastructure and sent global energy prices soaring. Washington, Riyadh, Berlin, London and Paris blamed Iran for the attacks, which Tehran has denied.

5.7 QUAKE HITS JAPAN AS ‘MONSTER’ TYPHOON HAGIBIS SET TO MAKE LANDFALL

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
EARTHQUAKE HITS OFF JAPAN’S EAST COAST AS COUNTRY BRACED FOR MONSTER TYPHOON
A magnitude 5.7 earthquake has struck off the east coast of Japan’s main Honshu island as monster Typhoon Hagibis is set to make landfall in the middle of the country.
Japan’s Meteorological Agency reported that the quake hit at 6.22pm local time and it is not expected to trigger a tsunami. It struck at a depth of 59.6 km and its epicenter is 55 kilometres south southeast of Katsuura in Chiba prefecture, the US Geological Survey reports.
More than 1.6 million people have already been ordered to evacuate parts of Honshu as Typhoon Hagibis barrels towards the center of Japan.
The violent storm, set to be Japan’s worst in 60 years, has already claimed its first victim as a man was killed when a vehicle toppled over in heavy winds in Chiba, east of Tokyo, NHK News reports.
Monster Typhoon: Tokyo braced for Japan’s worst storm in 60 years (PHOTOS, VIDEOS)
More than 1.6 million people have been ordered to evacuate as Japan gears up for potentially record breaking wind and rain as Typhoon Hagibis claims its first victim before even making landfall.
Winds are set to reach 216km/h (134mph) and trigger floods and landslides when the monster storm barrels into central or eastern Japan on Saturday, the country’s Meteorological Agency has warned. 
The sky turned a dark shade of purple on Saturday evening and residents shared striking images of the startling specticle on their social media platforms.
Ahead of the massive storm crashing into the main island of Honshu, it already claimed its first victim as a man was killed when a vehicle toppled over in heavy winds in Chiba, east of Tokyo, NHK News reports.
Hagibis is forecast to be the first storm rated “very strong” to hit Honshu since the category system was introduced in 1991. The Meteorological Agency said it could bring record rainfall on a par with a deadly typhoon in 1958 that triggered mudslides in Kanto and flooded the Kano River in Shizuoka Prefecture, leaving 888 dead and 381 missing, AFP reports.
Tens of thousands of homes are already without power and transport systems, factories and shops have been shut down. The typhoon has also disrupted the Japanese Grand Prix, forced the cancellation of two Rugby World Cup matches and grounded more than 1,600 flights.

TYPHOON HAGIBIS SET TO HIT JAPAN: COULD BE WORST IN 40 YEARS

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
TYPHOON HAGIBIS SET TO HIT JAPAN COULD BE AS BIG AS ONE THAT KILLED 1,200 IN 1958, FORECASTERS WARN
The typhoon set to batter Japan at the weekend could be as strong as one that hit the country 40 years ago, leaving more than 1,200 people dead.
The Japan Meteorological Agency has warned that Typhoon Hagibis could be as devastating as the Kanogawa Typhoon that hit Shizuoka Prefecture and the Tokyo region in 1958, killing more than 1,200 people.
The typhoon is set to hit Japan over the weekend, extreme weather warnings issued along the eastern coast.
Evacuation centres have been opened and sporting events cancelled – including two Rugby World Cup matches that were due to be played on Saturday.
Organizers also cancelled a marathon in Sendai and other northern coastal towns, and Formula One racing in Suzuka in central Japan was cancelled on Saturday.
Hagibis, which means speed in Filipino, is the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane, and is moving towards Japan.
The Japan Meteorological Agency said it is forecast to hit ashore in the Tokyo area late on Saturday, bringing torrential rains and strong winds.
The agency warned that the southeastern Tokai region of Japan could be deluged by up to 31 inches of rain in a 24-hour period.
Preparations have already started in some areas, with local offices in Chiba city distributing free sandbags to shield against flooding.

THE SHOCKING TRUTH ABOUT TRUMP’S “TRADE DEAL” WITH CHINA

October 11, 2019October 11, 2019 by Michael Snyderhttp://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/

We have a trade deal with China!  Well, except that nothing has actually been written down, nothing has actually been signed, the potential deal won’t really require any major concessions from China, but it did allow the Chinese to achieve a couple of key goals that they really wanted.  But other than that, the good news is that the Trump administration now has a “trade deal with China” to tout as a “major accomplishment” to voters.  And without a doubt, in the short-term this will calm the financial markets and ease some of the pressures on the global economy.  Certainly it appears that there should be no further escalations in our trade war with China over the next few months, and that is definitely a bit of good news worth celebrating.  Following the announcement of this potential deal, stock prices started surging, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average ended the day up more than 300 points.  We haven’t seen this much optimism on Wall Street in some time, and things certainly seem brighter for investors in the short-term.

TRUMP COULD BE IMPEACHED BASED ON THE TESTIMONY OF A PARADE OF “WHISTLEBLOWERS” THAT DON’T EVEN TESTIFY IN PERSON

October 11, 2019October 11, 2019 by Michael Snyder – http://endoftheamericandream.com/

This “impeachment inquiry” is becoming more shady with each passing day.  Nancy Pelosi won’t even take a vote in the House to officially approve this “impeachment inquiry” because she is convinced that such a vote is not needed.  But as White House Counsel Pat Cipollone has aptly noted, the lack of a vote “violates fundamental fairness and constitutionally mandated due process”. 
And now we are learning that the original whistleblower is asking if he can “submit testimony in writing instead of appearing in person”, which would likely mean that we may never found out the identify of this individual.  So we could potentially be facing a scenario in which the House of Representatives actually impeaches the president of the United States based on “testimony” from an anonymous source that they never actually get to see face to face. 
The U.S. Constitution sets a very high standard for impeaching a president, and it is absolutely absurd that this process is moving forward based on information from someone that does not want to face any sort of public scrutiny and that did not even have firsthand knowledge of Trump’s conversation with the president of Ukraine in the first place. (Read More…)
And guess what?  Now that the original “whistleblower” has gotten so much favorable attention, it has encouraged other “potential whistleblowers” to start coming forward…
New potential whistleblowers are coming forward to the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, two congressional sources tell The Daily Beast.
They seem to be emboldened by the actions of the whistleblower whose explosive account of President Donald Trump’s phone call to Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky about investigating Trump’s domestic political rivals ignited the impeachment inquiry.
Perhaps the Democrats will just keep having “whistleblower” after “whistleblower” come forward until they can find something that finally sticks.
After all, if they never even have to testify publicly, there isn’t much risk for these “whistleblowers”.  Anyone in the government that wants to take down Trump could come forward with “damaging information”, and of course the Democrats would be all too eager to gobble it up and run forward with it.
According to the Daily Beast, the new “whistleblowers” are currently being vetted by “congressional investigators”…
Congressional investigators are currently vetting the new accounts they’ve received for credibility. Accordingly, knowledgeable sources would not discuss where in the government these new would-be whistleblowers come from, nor what they purport to have to say.
Needless to say, the term “”congressional investigators” could easily be replaced by “Democratic political hacks”, and anyone that has anything that could even remotely be damaging to Trump will be considered to be “credible”.
If the original whistleblower was forced to testify publicly, a lot of these new “whistleblowers” would quickly disappear.  But at this point, it appears that the original whistleblower is going to try to avoid even testifying behind closed doors to Congress.  In fact, it is being reported that he may not ever testify in person to anyone.  At this point, the legal team representing the “whistleblower” has officially asked Congress if the “whistleblower” can “submit testimony in writing instead of appearing in person”
Lawyers for the CIA officer whose whistleblower complaint helped ignite an impeachment inquiry into President Trump have asked Congress whether their client could submit testimony in writing instead of appearing in person, according to people familiar with the matter.
The request reflects concerns about whether the whistleblower could testify to Democrats and Republicans without revealing his identity, and fears that doing so would lead to it being publicly leaked, jeopardizing his personal safety. The intelligence committees haven’t yet responded to the inquiry about potential written testimony, the people said.
It is true that once the identity of this “whistleblower” becomes known, that person’s life will never be the same again.
But if you are going to take down the president of the United States, it is not something that can be done anonymously.
At this point Trump’s life has been made a living hell by this “whistleblower”, and Trump deserves to be able to face his accuser.
Not only that, but if a president that is supported by nearly half the country is going to be thrown out of office, the American people deserve to hear directly from the prime witnesses.
This is a very, very serious matter, and this process should be treated with the utmost gravity.
Right now, the mainstream media is relentlessly hammering Trump, and the American public is increasingly becoming convinced that the president may have committed some sort of a crime.  In fact, the most recent Fox News poll shows that 51 percent of all Americans want “Trump impeached and removed from office”…
Just over half of voters want President Trump impeached and removed from office, according to a Fox News Poll released Wednesday.
A new high of 51 percent wants Trump impeached and removed from office, another 4 percent want him impeached but not removed, and 40 percent oppose impeachment altogether. In July, 42 percent favored impeachment and removal, while 5 percent said impeach but don’t remove him, and 45 percent opposed impeachment.
Needless to say, President Trump was not very impressed by this new Fox poll…
President Trump bashed his erstwhile favorite news channel, Fox News, in a pair of tweets Thursday touched off by a new Fox News poll that found a majority of Americans want to see him impeached and removed from office.
“From the day I announced I was running for President, I have NEVER had a good @FoxNews Poll,” Trump tweeted. “Whoever their Pollster is, they suck.”
But what everyone seems to be forgetting is that in order for the president of the United States to be impeached and removed from office, he must have committed a crime, and that is simply not true in this case.
You can’t impeach a president just because you don’t like him or her.
Unfortunately, at this point our government has totally gone off the rails.  The Democrats and many Republicans seem to have no problem with repeatedly trampling on the Constitution, and this is something that I have repeatedly warned about.
The Democrats, the mainstream media and “never Trump Republicans” are setting this nation up for a major political disaster.
If President Trump is illegally impeached and illegally removed from office, there is going to be an uproar on the right like we have never seen before.
But if President Trump is illegally impeached by the House and then protected by the Republicans in the Senate, that could cause a tremendous amount of unrest on the left.
Either way, this country is going to be deeply, deeply divided by this illegal process, and at this point it is very difficult to see how this story is going to have a positive ending.
