The Time Of Trouble
(Do you believe that the Democrat Regime in America is bringing about the "time of trouble"?)
Without a doubt we have the worst regime in many years.
Shut down our pipe line putting 1000s out of work while allowing a Russian pipe line. Pulling military out of Afghanistan leaving many civilians and giving millions of dollars of military equipment to the Taliban. Then sending billions to somewhere or someone (who knows) in Ukraine. Going to Saudi Arabia to beg for oil. Just think if we bought electric cars or bicycles(if we could ride them), we wouldn't have these problems.

The Time Of Trouble
How do I benefit from "relaxed gun laws"
I own several guns, a republican, but I don't own an M16A1, M16A2, M4, M16A4 or AK47 assault rifles, although you can buy them, if they were made before 1986, then it takes about a year of paperwork with the ATF, after that if you can find one and have upwards of $12,000 you could legally own a real assault rifle. It's quite apparent most here have never witnessed a real assault weapon

The Time Of Trouble
What is amazing is seeing the few trying to defend it. At least they are that far out of their closets.
--Trav on 6/12/22

It's hard to defend lunacy.
Biden figures if we run out of bread we can eat cake

The Time Of Trouble
If It was a republican regime, they would with out a doubt be blamed, but in this administration, no body is in charge, so we blame Putin or the NRA maybe even Teddy Roosevelt.
Being the supposed leader of the free world, we are setting the worst example in many decades.
Shutting down pipelines here giving the ok to Russia, leaving people in Afghanistan and giving xxxx $ of weapons to the Taliban, that Ukraine could have used. Fighting for abortion, the list is never ending

The Time Of Trouble
Having been liberal as far back as JFK, there are no JFK dems. left
This regime has surpassed Carter's regime for incompetence. Record inflation, crime, living expenses etc. If trump was in power we would blame him, some still do anyway. We can't blame Biden, he doesn't know if he's vice president or president. Pathetic

Mixing the BoC with The nation of Israel is mixing Law and Grace
Acts 3:19-21 "Repent ye therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, WHEN the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of The Lord," (when is this experience the restitution of all things? During the Trib.
Peter expects The Lord's return to the Nation of Israel if they repented, he knew they are going through seven years of restitution
Peter's gospel of the kingdom or the gospel of the circumcision, preached to the nation of Israel under Mosaic law. Paul's gospel of grace, the gospel of the uncircumcision, was preached to the Gentiles under grace. Jew or Gentile, Paul's gospel is the way of salvation in this present age of grace.

Pentecostal Church Our Model
Acts 2:36 "Therefore let all the house of Israel (Jew only) know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ."
Compare Scripture. Paul tells the BoC
Gal 1:3,4 "Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins,..."
Acts 2:38 "Then Peter said unto them, `Repent, and be baptized "
3:26. "Repent and be baptized." John the Baptist. introduced The King, his message was, for the Nation of Israel. "Repent and be baptized." Paul talking to a Gentile.
Acts 16:31 "And they (Paul and Silas) said, `Believe on The Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.'"

Pentecostal Church Our Model
Some seem to believe their church began in Acts 2. If so, they repented of their sins were baptized, then received the HS. Then sold all their possessions and brought the money to the church. I don't know anyone that does that.
Matt-1st part of Acts is directed to Israel.
Acts 2:22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words,
Acts 3:12 | Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this?
Acts 5:35 And said unto them, Ye men of Israel
Some try to force scriptures addressed to Israel into the BoC. Just creates confusion

Pentecostal Church Our Model
Mark 16 is in my Bible
If you study the whole thing you'll see, this is part of Christ's earthly ministry." It fit the Pentecost doctrine perfectly, exactly what Christ had been doing. "signs And miracles" (1 Cor. 1:22 "For the Jews require a sign,") It was never intended for the BoC the Jewish program has slipped away, and something new came in.

Pentecostal Church Our Model
Acts 2:16-17 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel, And it shall come to pass in the LAST DAYS
Acts 2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
Joel prophesied this Joel 2:28-30
Pentecost was the ending not the beginning.
The BoC doesn't practice Mark 16:16-18

The Time Of Trouble
Don't believe this the "time of trouble" but the USA is in trouble on every front. The "buck" is supposed to stop at the top.

Predestined As A Son Of God
Rom 8:29a "For whom he did fore know, he also did predestinate to (Hell or Heaven It doesn't say that) Whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed (be made like), to the image of his Son,..."
That's not heaven or hell. That's a position God has reserved for the individual believer.

Pentecostal Church Our Model
Acts 3:19,20 "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out,..: "And he shall send Jesus Christ..." To be their King.
Acts 3:24 "Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel... have likewise foretold of these days."( that have just taken place.) Nothing about the Age of Grace, the Church, as of yet. a secret being kept in the mind of God until Paul.
Acts 3:25 ".. saying unto Abraham And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed."
If every Jew had responded the King and Kingdom could have come. The Tribulation would have had to have taken place but, the Kingdom would come. And Israel could evangelize the world bringing Gentiles to Jesus They missed an opportunity

Pentecostal Church Our Model
Zech. 8:23 "Thus saith the LORD of host, `In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you (but not until): for we have heard that God is with you.'"
Acts 1:8 "...and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria,..."
By Acts 8 Philip goes To Samaria. And Samaria heard the Word. The twelve never went to the nations of the world. Find one time in Scripture where the twelve had a ministry to Gentiles. They didn't, because Israel never fulfilled the requirements of accepting their King,

Pentecostal Church Our Model
Acts 2:38 "Then Peter said unto them, `Repent, and be baptized every one of you..'"
Why "every one of you"? If every Jew had repented of their national sin, recognized who they killed was their Messiah and King,
Acts 3:20 says God would have sent Christ at that time to be their King and would yet set up the Kingdom.
Try to remember our Gospel of Salvation, believe Jesus died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead. Try to find that Gospel as a means of Salvation in any of these chapters.
Paul said his gospel was a mystery not known, but some think that's a lie
Even Peter Later understood that Paul had the answers 2 Pet 3.

Pentecostal Church Our Model
Acts 2:38 No mention of the death, burial, and Resurrection. Their faith was in who he is. Repent and be baptized for the remission of sins and then receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Acts 10, Peter reluctantly goes to Cornelius, a Gentile. Years after the Cross. Not a Gentile has been saved.
Acts 10:44 Peter was still speaking the Holy Ghost fell on all them.
All believed, these are Gentiles who didn't know anything of the Law. But when they believed Peter, the Holy Spirit came down, God was proving to Peter that God was doing something new, saving Gentiles. Not on the basis of repentance and baptism, but the moment they heard the word and believed. Gentile believers baptized after the fact instead of before as in Acts 2:38:

Predestined As A Son Of God
We aren't predestined to heaven or hell.
Eph 1:5 "Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,"
Paul teaches, the moment we become a believer we are placed as an heir with the Son. We're predestinated right there with Christ, as a joint heir in the process of the adoption.
Eph 1:11 "In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:"

Pentecostal Church Our Model
Zech 14:9 "And the LORD shall be king over all the EARTH: A King isn't a King without a Kingdom.
Acts 1:6 "..they asked of him, saying, `Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?'" Jesus talked to them of a future Kingdom (Acts 1:3)
So their thinking on the Kingdom is valid.
Matt 19:27 "..Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee, what shall we have therefore?'"
Matt 19:28 "And Jesus said unto them, `Verily I say unto you, that ye which have followed me (the twelve, excluding Judas), in the regeneration when the Son of Man shall sit in the throne of his glory (His Kingdom), ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.'"

Pentecostal Church Our Model
Acts 2:22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words, (+ gentiles NO)
Acts 2:41 "Then they that gladly received his word were
Same as the Baptist did did. Repent and baptize them. Same thing here. A furtherance of John's message. But now the Cross work is finished
Acts 2:42 "And they continued steadfastly in the apostles doctrine..." What apostles? The 12. still unlawful to speak to gentiles.
Peter told Cornelius it's unlawful for me to speak to you.
