  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    When the ten Northern tribes of Israel were deported by Assyria, the people were lost only because they lost the name of Israel. In fact, they began to multiply and be prosperous in their exile, exactly as the prophets said that they would: Deuteronomy 33:1-29

    Hosea 12:8 Ephraim says: Surely I have become rich and made my fortune….
    Hosea 1:10 The Israelites will be as countless as the sands of the sea…..

    Although Israel and Judah were allowed to be conquered and then scattered by God, this is for a decreed period of exile and once again:
    Hosea 1:11 The people of Judah and of Israel, [now every Christian] will be reunited and will live together again in the Promised Land. They will choose for themselves a leader.
    Must be before the Return of Jesus: Jeremiah 30:21 A leader will arise, one of them…..

    Hosea 2:19-23 I shall betroth you to Myself for ever, bestowing righteousness and justice, loyalty and love... will say, ‘You are My people’ and you will say, ‘You are our God’.

    Even though God did cast off the Israelites, scattering them around the world, His purpose was to sow them, so that they would increase and prosper and fulfil His promise to Abraham and the prophecies to the 12 sons of Jacob. Genesis 49 & Deuteronomy 33
    But in the last days:
    Hosea 1:10 ….It will no longer be said of them, “You are not My people”, they will be calledChildren of the Living God”. That is: true Christians. Galatians 3:29, 1 John 3:1-2
    Romans 6:24-26…you will be called the sons of the Living God.

    The problem today, is that most Christians try to make the Jews fit these prophecies and that is why so many writers and teachers made themselves look foolish, like saying that Jesus would return in 1988, that being forty years after the Jewish state of Israel began. All the prophets differentiate between Judah and Israel and to say that they have already rejoined, is to ignore this clear distinction. Until their rejoining, there are many great blessings given to lost Israel and to Judah, the Jewish people, but they both still face a judgement. Ezekiel 20:34-38 When they rejoin in the Promised Land, then they will be reconciled and will live together in peace and prosperity.

    The Jewish historian Josephus: circa 100AD, knew where the ten tribes of Israel were and we know that the writers of the New Testament also knew of their location. The Apostles Peter and James both address their letters to “the scattered people of God, now living as aliens” and “Greetings to the 12 tribes, dispersed throughout the world”.

    When Peter refers to these peoples as “a chosen nation, a holy people, a royal priesthood,” he was not using spiritualised terminology, he was actually talking to the Israelites - lost as God planned it. He was appealing to them on the basis of their known heritage, telling them the good news that Jesus had redeemed them from their sins which brought about their dispersion 750 years earlier. All this, Peter says, is made possible by Jesus’ work on the Cross. His first appearance on earth secured His rights to rule, His Return will secure the birthright, which was given to Joseph, the ruling tribe of the lost House of Israel. The work of reuniting the birthright with Jesus the King began with the apostles as they spread the gospel to these “lost sheep”. John 10:16

    Tracing these Israelites is no longer any difficulty. The historical, archaeological, linguistic and heraldic records give all the evidence needed to link the Israelites with the Western, Caucasian nations of the world. The only way to understand why these facts are not widely known is that it is God’s plan that Israel be lost and thought to be assimilated. Remember that the exile punishment of Judah and Israel was for a decreed time, Ezekiel 4:4-6 and they are promised to go back there again. Ezekiel 34:11-16, Psalms 60:1-5, Jeremiah 23:3-4

    Jacob thought that his birthright son, Joseph, was lost forever in the original prophetic pattern. But the day is coming when the descendants of his sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, will be seen again, as the leaders of true Israel, the new nation of Beulah, back in all of the Promised Land. Isaiah 62:1-5, Psalms 69:35-36 And the title deed to the Land, buried by Jeremiah 32:14, will be found as proof of our ownership.

    In this age, while we Christians remain scattered around the world, we are God's Spiritual people. But the time; well prophesied and soon to come, that we will be the Lord's holy people, in all of His holy Land. That is our destiny; to be His witnesses, Isaiah 43:10 and the Light to the nations. Isaiah 49:8

    Remember that ethnicity doesn't count for anything in Christ. ALL are saved who believe and are born again in His Spirit. John 3:16
    However, God's secret is that the majority of His Christian people are, in fact, actual descendants of Jacob. This fulfils God's promise to the Patriarchs, of their descendants occupying all that area from the Nile to the Euphrates. Not happened yet, but it surely will!

    Malachi 3:16-18 Those who loved the Lord and kept His Laws, met together and the Lord watched them and listened to their supplications. A record was written before Him of those who feared Him and had respect for His Name. They will be Mine, says the Lord Almighty, My own possession on the Day that I appoint and I shall spare them, as a father protects his son who serves him. Once more, you will be able to tell the difference between the good and the wicked, the servant of God from the person who does not serve Him.
    Daniel 12:1 There will be a time of anguish, but at that time the Lord’s people will be delivered, all those whose names are written in the Book of Life.

    Jeremiah 10:18 The Lord says; This time, I shall throw out the whole population of the holy Land, I will bring disaster and doom upon them all. Ezekiel 21:4

    Psalm 50:3-6 Our God is coming and will not keep silent, a consuming fire runs ahead of Him and around Him a great storm rages. He summons heaven and earth to the judging of His people. Gather to Me, My loyal servants, those who by sacrifice have made a Covenant with Me.

    Zephaniah 2:3 Seek the Lord, all you who obey Him and it may be that you will be sheltered on the Day of the Lord’s anger.

    Jeremiah 17:7-8 Blessed is anyone who trusts in the Lord, they will be like trees by a stream, when the heat comes they will have nothing to fear.

    Psalm 60:4-5 For those who fear the Lord, He has made a sign by which they may escape the disaster. Those dear to Him will be delivered by His strong Right hand.

    Isaiah 43:2b.... you will walk thru fire and not be scorched, thru flames and not be burnt.

    Psalm 37:9-13 The wicked plot against the Lord’s people, they hate to see those who worship Him and keep His laws. But the Lord laughs at them and in a little while the wicked will be no more, however hard you look you will find their place empty. For evildoers will be destroyed, but those who trust in the Lord will possess the holy Land and enjoy untold prosperity.

    Isaiah 65:9b My chosen ones will take possession of the holy Land and those who serve Me will live there. 1 Cor. 2:9

    Psalm 118:16-29 With His mighty Right hand, the Lord will give victory over the surrounding nations. This is the Day the Lord takes action, it will be a Day for us to exult and rejoice. The Lord’s people will not die, they will live to proclaim His mighty deeds. Our prayers for deliverance and prosperity will be granted, we will bless Him who comes in the Name of the Lord. [At the Return of Jesus, years later.] You are our God and we will praise and exalt You. It is good to give thanks to the Lord, for His love endures forever.

    Righteous people, who worship God and keep His commandments, all faithful born again Christians, will have their names written in the Book of Life. They will be protected and delivered when the heat comes; the consuming fire of the Lord’s wrath, that will burn His enemies to ashes. Malachi 4:1-3 The whole population of the holy Land will be gone, the Land empty and deserted, Zephaniah 1:18 and then the Lord promises the Land will bring forth fruit and become like a garden land, Ezekiel 36:8, Isaiah 35:1-2, then those who fear Him and have respect for His Name will rejoice, as they gather and go to live in peace and prosperity in the new nation of Beulah. Isaiah 62:1-5
