LEFT BEHIND OR LED ASTRAY: PRE-TRIB RAPTURE vs POST-TRIB RAPTURE
FACTIONS AND DIVISIONS
Pre-Trib Rapture vs Post-Trib Rapture: Factions and divisions have always been commonplace among Christians. How do we know this? Paul himself wrote:
“For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it. For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.” (1 Corinthians 11:18-19)
Paul sincerely sought to foster a harmonious unity among the members of the church but knew that the perpetual presence of sin made it virtually impossible to unify the church under every single doctrine given to the church.
One of the doctrines that came under constant attack by false teachers was the imminent return of Jesus Christ at the Pre-Trib Rapture. Hence his serious warning against false teachers in 2 Thessalonians 2. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »
DANIEL’S SEVENTY WEEKS
I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please. (Isaiah 46:9-10)
To understand the past and the future as God reveals in His Word, it is very important to interpret Biblical prophecy accurately. The fact that about 30% of the entire Bible is devoted to prophecy, shows us why it is so important to diligently and carefully study it. The Bible is the only book in the world that foretells future events with 100% accuracy. By foretelling major events in world history, centuries and even thousands of years before they happen, the God of the Bible proves that He is the only true God, the Creator of heaven and earth, and of all mankind. He proves by prophecy that He is Lord of world history and that the Bible is His trustworthy Word which He gave to us to explain His purposes and salvation to every person who is willing to listen and believe.
Origen Adamantius, Augustine of Hippo, John Calvin and Martin Luther have greatly impaired a correct understanding of biblical prophecy by allegorizing some of the most important ones. The most dreadful antagonist of biblical prophecy is Replacement Theology that says God has set the nation of Israel permanently aside as his chosen people and instead has chosen the church (the elect). God allegedly transferred all the promises He originally made to Israel to the church, including the one concerning the land of Israel. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »
Our Global Village
The Elders is founded on the idea that we now live in a ‘global village’, an increasingly interconnected, interdependent world. We believe in listening to everyone, both critical and supportive, and encourage debate about the issues we work on.
Whether you’re an activist, someone affected by conflict, or you want to share a message: use this space to hear from the people the Elders are working with, join the discussion and connect with other members of our community. —> http://theelders.org/global-village
How was the group formed?
The concept originates from a conversation between the entrepreneur Richard Branson and the musician Peter Gabriel. The idea they discussed was simple: many communities look to their elders for guidance, or to help resolve disputes. In an increasingly interdependent world – a ‘global village’ – could a small, dedicated group of individuals use their collective experience and influence to help tackle some of the most pressing problems facing the world today?
Richard Branson and Peter Gabriel took their idea of a group of ‘global elders’ to Nelson Mandela, who agreed to support it. With the help of Graça Machel and Desmond Tutu, Mandela set about bringing the Elders together and formally launched the group in Johannesburg, July 2007. —> http://theelders.org/about

Obama Promises Peace in Middle East – He Promises?
King Abdullah of Jordan’s ultimatum: peace now or its war next year
America is putting the final touches to a hugely ambitious peace plan for the Middle East, aimed at ending more than 60 years of conflict between Israel and the Arabs, according to Jordans King Abdullah, who is helping to bring the parties together.
The Obama Administration is pushing for a comprehensive peace agreement that would include settling Israels conflict with the Palestinians and its territorial disputes with Syria and Lebanon, King Abdullah II told The Times. Failure to reach agreement at this critical juncture would draw the world into a new Middle East war next year. If we delay our peace negotiations, then there is going to be another conflict between Arabs or Muslims and Israel in the next 12-18 months, the King said.
Details of the plan are likely to be thrashed out in a series of diplomatic moves this month. Chief among them is President Obamas meeting with Binyamin Netanyahu, the right-wing Israeli Prime Minister, in Washington a week today. The initiative could form the centrepiece for Mr Obamas much-anticipated address to the Muslim world in Cairo on June 4. A peace conference could then take place involving all the parties as early as July or August. Such an ambitious project has not been attempted since 1991, when George Bush seniors Administration assembled all the parties for a peace conference in Madrid. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »
