Calvary Chapel of Chino California held The Southern California Prophecy Conference last week (Feb. 2022, 2009). I wonder if those who came to hear speakers like Tim LaHaye, Mark Hitchcock, Paul McGuire, David Hocking, David Reagan, and Ed Hindson were aware that Chuck Smith, the founder of the Calvary Chapel network of churches, made some very definite predictions about when the rapture was going to take place.
While cleaning up my office, I came across a cassette tape of a sermon Chuck Smith preached on December 31, 1979. He told his very accepting audience on that day that the rapture would take place in 1981. The former Soviet Republic going into Afghanistan in August of 1978 was the prelude to what Smith considered to be a full-force invasion of the Middle East. It would not be long before Russia would invade Israel, Smith told his audience. All of this was said to have been predicted by Ezekiel 2600 years ago.
Smith went on to claim in his end-of-the-year message of 30 years ago that because of ozone depletion Revelation 16:8 would be fulfilled during the soon-coming Great Tribulation: And the fourth angel poured out his bowl upon the sun; and it was given to it to scorch men with fire. According to Smith, Halleys Comet would pass near the earth in 1986 and would wreck atmospheric havoc for those left behind as debris from its million-mile tail pummeled the earth.

Either that or God is very fickle. Take the poor tribe of Dan, for example. One minute its in, then its out, then its back in again (according to futurism).
Essentially, it does not matter WHICH of the blood descendants God decrees to fill the bill for the 12 tribes.
Even on tribe reaping the promises God promised to the blood descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob

I’ll throw myself on the mercy of g-d.
Don't hold your breath. I've been trying to get him to say something intelligent for quite some time now. Nothing has worked. Like trying to get rid of a harmless but annoying insect.
I suspect he's hiding his abject ignorance of the Bible behind all these cutsie/colorful phrases.
Glad to be of humor service.
Y’all will likely need a lot of humor when the truth begins to slap y’all upside the faces eventually.
Now that's funny. Same tune we've been hearing from the futurists "any day now" crowd for decades.
You Israeloholics can tap us on the shoulder when we're supposed to take you seriously, which, from the looks of things won't be anytime soon.
Given that you don’t take God’s Word seriously in terms of
GOD ALMIGHTY’S PROPHECIES
THE BLOOD DESCENDANTS OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB
looks like I’m in GREAT COMPANY.
Here they are:
Man, I wish I had hair that good.
Not sure. I think whatever they put in it must affect their brain.
