|Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go! It will be done just as you believed|
it would." And his servant was healed at that very hour.

1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branchthat beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. 9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. 10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. 11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

|While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly,|
as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape
Note with me please, the words "and THEY will not escape......" But what about us, will we escape? If you are "in Christ" and found worthy then you certainly will escape all:
Luke 21:34“Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap. 35For it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
The rapture of the church is the Bride of Christ going to heaven to the place the Bridegroom has prepared for her. The pre-tribulation rapture is a fact, it is absolutely positively CERTAIN. Forget the naysayers, forget the debates, forget the disputing. Make up your mind what you believe commit to it with your whole heart. Trust the Lord to lead you into all truth. Ask Him to give you revelation of His Word.
Its time to get excited. It is time to rekindle hope and gladness and joy and comfort and peace about the certainty that WE WILL NOT BE HERE when all hell breaks loose. We will be in heaven with our Lord. Read Revelation 5 and you will see redeemed and rewarded men in heaven from every tribe tongue language and nation. There is one and only one way they arrive there and that is the open door in heaven in Rev 4, allowing the raptured church to enter heaven with the Bridegroom.
Comfort your hearts and be very very encouraged today. Be certain of what you believe. Hold onto your faith and your blessed hope that our Savior God, our Blessed Redeemer draws nigh. Oh glory to God!!!!!
time to get ready for work..grace and peace

|For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters|
increased they lifted the ark high above the earth.
Luke 17:26“Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.
28“It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. 29But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
30“It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed.
One last note. I was on vacation last week and I saw two different people from different walks of life that both in the same evening approached me about the Lord (we had spoken years before). They both told me that the Lord was working on their hearts and that they were concerned that time was short and they wanted to be spiritually prepared for what is coming. Amazing..most self described Christians aren't event in the same playing field with these people and they aren't even believers yet!
The Lord is working on building His kingdom. Time appears to be short and the Lord is bringing in the harvest. This past week was an eye opener for me. I pray that the two men I spoke with are now both believers and have entrusted themselves to the Lord. Although you don't know them I ask that you would pray for them that their souls would be brought into the Kingdom.

|... "Every matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses."|
We have 4 witnesses here. A 5th witness is the Holy Ghost, a 6th is the Lord Jesus who is the Word, a 7th witness is Luke through whom the gospel of Luke was written, and 8th witness is Matthew who relates the same story in Matt 24 as Luke does in Luke 17. And the list goes on....
This fall, it appears that multiple vectors of destruction are coming to bear. Could the Lord come back for us just before the destruction falls? Its possible, or He could come back for us tonight. Our job is to watch and be ready for whenever He comes back for us. Maybe nothing happens this fall. Maybe we are still around for 5 more years or 10, does it really matter? We watch and wait and remain ready for however long it takes for our Lord to show up. This readiness is a dividing line between us and the "other tribbers." The "other tribbers" mock us for our watching and readiness today. They tell us that there are all kinds of things that must happen first before the Lord can come back for us. This writer is convinced that they are wrong. This writer is convinced that the Lord can come back for us today.
The Bridegroom coming back for the bride is a suprise. The bride must be ready for any day that the Bridegroom shows up. That day could be very soon. How should we be living when we can see destruction coming and we know the coming of our Lord is imminent? The answer to that I leave to your discretion.
Keep the faith, be strong, be patient. Encourage all the brothers. Be watching. Be ready.
grace and peace
