Rapture Ready End Times News 11 Aug 2020 Published on: August 11, 2020 by RRadmin7 Graham Blasts FBI Over Newly Declassified Memo, Says ‘Somebody Needs To Go to Jail for This’ Sen. Lindsey Graham released an FBI memo on Sunday from 2018 that he says shows investigators lied to the Senate about statements that the primary source for the Steele dossier told the FBI regarding the salacious document. “They lied to the FISA court. They got rebuked the FBI did in 2019 by the FISA court putting in doubt all FISA applications, the FISA court just ripped a new one for the FBI, a year before they’re lying to the Senate Intel committee.

Christians must defy Caesar’s attempt to control the church Government attempts to regulate church attendance and worship practices violate not only the law of our land, the U.S. Constitution, they violate the law above the law, and because of that every Christian pastor should individually be in open defiance of restrictive “mandates” and collectively in active civil rebellion against the state and local governments issuing them.

Cancel Trump and The Great Reset of the Globe A socialist once said, “never let a crisis go to waste,” and it seems that the Covid-19 pandemic has offered such an unprecedented crisis that the globalists will gladly utilize to finally eliminate the U.S. as the only roadblock left to implementing their one world government goals. President Trump Pulled Out Of Briefing After Secret Service Shoots Armed Man Who Approached The White House Who Refused To Drop His Weapon • Now The End Begins I have long said that there is a plot to assassinate President Trump, and the closer we get to election, the more we will see events like what just happened moments ago.

Daily Dig for August 11 Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt You must learn to accept your weakness, your own poverty, and your own limitations, especially when the going gets rough. It is just through your weakness that our Savior can do his work (2 Cor. 12:9). He can manage what you cannot! ... It’s often better not to get too involved in other people’s affairs, wanting to have a say in everything, because most of the time we don’t really know what the right step is. In the end, only God can work things out. Especially where there is sickness, poverty, or strongholds of temptation, you will have to realize your helplessness. You don’t need to be a knight in shining armor who is all set to kill the devil – no, we must learn to step back in faith and hope and keep the power of Jesus firmly in the center.

Daily Prayer for August 11 Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, "Your God reigns!" Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices; together they shout for joy. When the Lord returns to Zion, they will see it with their own eyes. Isaiah 52:7–8, NIV Lord our God, grant that we may be your watchmen, who can understand what you mean for our time. We thank you for all you have already done, for every change to the good among the nations. For the nations must bow to your will so that nothing happens unless accomplished by you. Judge us wherever necessary. Open our eyes to see where we are wrong and where something does not go according to your Spirit. Be with us and give us strength. Raise up more watchmen everywhere, in every place and in every home. Wherever something happens to move people's hearts, let the watchmen proclaim, "This comes from God. It does not matter how much we suffer. This comes from Jesus Christ, who suffered and died, but who rose again." Raise up such watchmen among young and old everywhere on earth, to the glory of your name. Let there be a people who go to meet you with shouts of joy and thanksgiving. Amen.

LEARNING FROM THE GREAT TEACHER Tuesday, August 11, 2020 | Luke 19:1-9 April 2020 Today in the Word Daily Devotional RECOGNIZING NEEDS As a classroom teacher for sixteen years, I learned to recognize my students’ social, emotional, and academic needs. Teaching to change lives was as much about what happened outside of the lesson plan as the lesson plan itself. As I spent time purposefully recognizing my students’ interests and frustrations, our relationship grew, and learning increased. Most importantly, I had more opportunities to share the gospel and see lives changed for good. In Luke 19 we read the story of Zacchaeus. As a chief tax collector, Zacchaeus had his financial needs met. He lacked nothing. Or did he? Why did he diligently make his way through the crowd and climb a sycamore tree to see Jesus (v. 4)? An even more intriguing question, with so many people suffering from poverty and physical needs, why did Jesus choose to spend time in Zacchaeus’s home? Jesus saw past the exterior trappings of wealth, recognizing that Zacchaeus had a need only He could meet. Jesus’ purposeful interaction with Zacchaeus focused on meeting his emotional and spiritual needs. While society rejected Zacchaeus, Jesus met him as a friend by sharing a meal with him in his home (v. 7). Jesus set an example of love and acceptance as He said, “I must stay in your house today” (v. 5). Zacchaeus’s salvation became Jesus’ mission because even a wealthy tax collector needed to experience God’s love. Christ’s public recognition of Zacchaeus and His decision to spend time in his home showed that salvation was offered to all who believe (John 1:12). Every day, we meet people whose needs are not always instantly recognizable. Not everyone climbs a tree to see us. Ask God to give you an open eye and listening ear. May He open the door for conversations that will plant seeds for the gospel. >> Consider the people you interact with today, whether in person or online. What might their needs be? How might God want to use you to speak truth to them and encourage them this day? PRAY WITH US Coming to the Lord in prayer today, we ask Him to show us opportunities to share the gospel and to guide our conversations at home, in the church, and in the workplace.

August 11, 2020 Waiting in Faith Hebrews 11:6-16 When I was a young boy, my mother let me plant some seeds in her garden. Although she explained that the plants would take time to appear, when nothing happened after several days, I decided to dig them up to check for progress. I found no plants, but what’s worse, I also ruined the possibility of ever seeing any. Hebrews 11 records examples of people who by faith waited for what God promised, even when it wasn’t visible. • Noah continued building an ark despite the many intervening years until the predicted flood (Heb. 11:7). • Abraham looked forward to the land God promised, though the fulfillment did not take place during his lifetime (Heb. 11:8-10). • Sarai had to wait until she was well beyond childbearing age before God finally gave her the son He’d promised (Heb. 11:11-12). If we expect God to work according to our timetable, we’re likely to face disappointment. The people mentioned in Hebrews had to wait many years; in fact, some of the promises made to them won’t be fulfilled until after Christ returns. The Lord doesn’t work like a gumball machine—we can’t cash in a promise and assume the fulfillment will pop out. Ours is a long-term walk by faith. Bible in One Year: Jeremiah 9-11

8-11-20 What did MLK Really Stand for?

Daily Jot: What did MLK really stand for? - Bill Wilson - www.dailyjot.com When America faces problems, exercising freedom of speech, respectful dialogue and responsible action is the appropriate way to solve and resolve. Riots, violence and hateful actions are unacceptable. But there are those in society who want to remake America into a politically intolerant, ideologically bigoted nation to fit their own agenda. And they will manipulate people, ideas and events in order to force that change. When people want to justify violence and hateful agendas by invoking the name of Martin Luther King, Jr., they are extremely misinformed, misled, and perhaps manipulated. Let's take a look at what Martin Luther King, Jr.'s actual words and what he stood for. King had six steps for protesting. "Step 1: Gather Information--Learn all you can about the problems you see in your community through the media, social and civic organizations, and by talking to the people involved. Step 2: Educ…

8-11-20 Continuing the Reformation

Continuing the Reformation :: By Jonathan BrentnerPublished on: January 19, 2020 by RRadmin7Category:General Articles While Scripture alone must be our sole source for faith and practice, the study of church history does serve a couple useful purposes. First, it helps us understand the historical background for what we believe. And second, it refutes those who use church history against what we believe. This last point is especially true in the realm of future things. Many in the church today maintain that modern-day beliefs in the rapture and the millennium reign of Jesus over a restored Israel began in the late nineteenth century. They use this argument to disparage these doctrines since they claim no one held them until late in church history. This is by far the most common reason given for dismissing our beliefs in the millennium and the rapture. Noted church historian Philip Schaff said this about premillennialism during the first few centuries of the church, “. . . the most str…

8-11-20 Who Is It Under the Mask?

Who Is It Under The Mask? :: By Zuzana RandakovaPublished on: January 19, 2020 by RRadmin7Category:General Articles During the Advent season, I was reading a book by Ann Voskamp titled The Greatest Gift. There was a chapter about the contest between Elijah and the prophets of Baal. You know the story; each prepared an offering, and whose god would set it on fire is the true one. Unsurprisingly, Baal’s prophets were dancing and chanting, but nothing happened. Then Elijah called upon the Lord (he even poured buckets of water over the offering to make it even more improbable to burn), and the Lord set the bull ablaze. Wow! At the end of the chapter, Ann suggested a few questions to ponder and to dig deeper. She asked the readers to think about “baals” in our lives, the idols we worship besides God. I immediately thought about fear. I was (and I often still am) struggling with fear and anxiety, and it crippled my life. How many things I missed because I was so afraid! As I was pondering …
