Is it time to call the midwife?

Looking the the website, there has been a whole lot of shaken going on.  You can also say the hits just keep on coming.  When you look at it you see the size of the quakes getting larger and more frequent.  In the last twenty four hours we have had two 8. earthquakes in Samontra,  Two Six point earthquakes in Mexico,  5.9 off the coast of Oregon.  5.3 in Japan.  There has been an interesting one in Utah and one off Nova Scotia.  

Jesus said when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, famines, pestilence and earthquakes in diverse places look up.  Look up for redemption draweth neigh.   Matthew 24 calls this the beginning of sorrows.  The Greek word is odeen which is the pains of childbirth.   I have four children myself and have been there for each of the births.  I know what that looks like.  I've been there when we had the children at home and when we had them in a hospital.  So we won't get into the whole midwife/hospital controversy in this post.  Though at another time and another place that would be a great discussion.  The thing I am seeing is the time is approaching.  What a doctor or a midwife would say is, when the contractions are close together, then we are ready to deliver.  There is something called Braxton-Hix contractions.  They are false labor pains.  A woman who is in touch with her body knows the difference.  With this round of earthquakes and the frequency of them happening, I say we are beyond Braxton-Hix and ready to call  the midwife to come and deliver the baby.

The question now becomes are you ready?  To be ready is simple.  Call upon the name of the Lord and you shall be saved.  For those who have already done so, are your garments, cleaned and pressed and ready.  Time to pray up.  Time to look up, for our salvation draweth neigh.  


  1. [Hi Tim. Saw this snippet on the amazing web.]


    How can the “rapture” be “imminent”? Acts 3:21 says that Jesus “must” stay in heaven (He's now there with the Father) “until the times of restitution of all things” which includes, says Scofield, “the restoration of the theocracy under David’s Son” which obviously can’t begin before or during Antichrist’s reign. ("The Rapture Question," by the long time No. 1 pretrib authority John Walvoord, didn't dare to even list, in its scripture index, the too-hot-to-handle Acts 3:21!) Since Jesus can’t even leave heaven before the tribulation ends (Acts 2:34,35 echo this), the rapture therefore can't take place before the end of the trib! (The same Acts verses were also too hot for John Darby - the so-called "father of dispensationalism" - to list in the scripture index in his "Letters"!)
    Paul explains the “times and the seasons” (I Thess. 5:1) of the catching up (I Thess. 4:17) as the “day of the Lord” (5:2) which FOLLOWS the posttrib sun/moon darkening (Matt. 24:29; Acts 2:20) WHEN “sudden destruction” (5:3) of the wicked occurs! The "rest" for "all them that believe" is tied to such destruction in II Thess. 1:6-10! (If the wicked are destroyed before or during the trib, who'd be left alive to serve the Antichrist?) Paul also ties the change-into-immortality “rapture” (I Cor. 15:52) to the posttrib end of “death” (15:54). (Will death be ended before or during the trib? Of course not! And vs. 54 is also tied to Isa. 25:8 which is Israel's posttrib resurrection!)
    Many are unaware that before 1830 all Christians had always viewed I Thess. 4’s “catching up” as an integral part of the final second coming to earth. In 1830 this "rapture" was stretched forward and turned into a separate coming of Christ. To further strengthen their novel view, which the mass of evangelical scholars rejected throughout the 1800s, pretrib teachers in the early 1900s began to stretch forward the “day of the Lord” (what Darby and Scofield never dared to do) and hook it up with their already-stretched-forward “rapture.” Many leading evangelical scholars still weren’t convinced of pretrib, so pretrib teachers then began teaching that the “falling away” of II Thess. 2:3 is really a pretrib rapture (the same as saying that the “rapture” in 2:3 must happen before the “rapture” ["gathering"] in 2:1 can happen – the height of desperation!).
    Other Google articles on the 182-year-old pretrib rapture view include "Pretrib Rapture Politics," "Pretrib Rapture Scholar Wannabes," “Famous Rapture Watchers,” "Pretrib Rapture Diehards," “X-Raying Margaret,” "Edward Irving is Unnerving," “Thomas Ice (Bloopers),” "Walvoord Melts Ice," “Wily Jeffrey,” “The Rapture Index (Mad Theology),” “America’s Pretrib Rapture Traffickers,” “Roots of (Warlike) Christian Zionism,” “Scholars Weigh My Research,” “Pretrib Hypocrisy,” "Appendix F: Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Pretrib Rapture Secrecy," “Deceiving and Being Deceived,” and "Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty" – all by the author of the bestselling book “The Rapture Plot” (see Armageddon Books).

  2. Thanks for your response. I see you definitely don't believe in a pretrib rapture nor a literal interpretation of Revelation. During the fourth seal of Revelation 6 one fourth of the worlds population is killed by wars, famines, plagues and wild animals. Who will the Beast rule over? The Georgia Guidestones say that we should keep the population at 500 million. The fact that it is currently at 7 billion means that a lot of people need to be killed off to reach their objective. There is also a need to get rid of anyone that disagrees with their philosophy. So they will be killing anyone who doesn't take their mark. They have already begun to kill christians in the Middle East. It will come to a neighborhood near you.

    About the idea that the rapture is a plot, you haven't really read the books of 1 and 2 Thessalonians in context and in full. When you do you see a clear picture develop. We have to get our hearts right, we have to have the sin that was once in our life removed and then there is this strange event called the harpatzo. Sometimes referred to the Latin word rapture. If you want to quote some scholars who are using sophistry and casuistry to make you think it won't happen, then think again. The new world order is already planning their explanation of what just happened. They will make you grateful that you missed it. I on the other hand will enjoy my time in heaven away from the wrath of God. Second Thessalonians says we have not been appointed unto wrath but to receive salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ. You can interpret that how you want but it says to me I won't be here when all hell is brought lose on this plant. By the way, you need to study your history better then that. Darby didn't discover the pre trib rapture. He only popularized it. It was preached by several preachers as far back as the second century. Check out some of Thomas Ice's work. It was even believed by non catholic groups during the middle ages. Too bad the church of Rome had to have an inquisition and conveniently kill them off. Copy and paste all you want. Think for yourself. Jesus will return to clean up the mess at Armageddon.

  3. If politicians need vetting, so do our prophecy teachers. For example, Google "Thomas Ice (Bloopers)" (his "Ph.D" came from a tiny Texas school that wasn't legally allowed to issue degrees!), "Walvoord Melts Ice" (even Walvoord disagreed with Tommy!), "Edward Irving is Unnerving" (who was right - Tommy or top British scholars?), "Appendix F: Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Pretrib Rapture Secrets," "Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty," and "Wily Jeffrey."
