160 is the "fasten your seat belts" level.
I would reply but we’re already gone.
Word to the wise: Be there.
“”The Great Disappointment was a major event in the history of the Millerite movement, a 19th century American Christian sect. William Miller, a Baptist preacher, understood by studying the prophecies in the book of Daniel (Chapters 8 and 9, especially Dan. 8:14 “Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed”) that Jesus Christ would return to the earth during the year 1844. A more specific date, that of October 22, 1844, was preached by Samuel S. Snow.
Although thousands of followers, some of whom had given away all of their possessions, awaited expectantly, Jesus did not appear as expected on the appointed day and as a result October 22, 1844, became known as the Great Disappointment.””
When have there not been crackpots preaching how it was the End Times? When have these same crackpots not worked overtime to make Christians look like generally retarded rubes? Maybe it is just as well the MSN pays them little attention.
One of the most comical things I’ve ever heard of.
What other prophecy must be fulfilled b4 the rapture? I’m not a big end times prophecy buff but we have been told what the signs would be... the only bigger sign would be if “aliens” landed from “space”. The world quakes at the precipice of irreversible conflagration, when war is declared in middle east, the earth will fall headlong into an engulfing rage... it is my belief that the rapture will occur either just prior to or in the midst of that engulfing rage.
This is a joke thread...right?
I’ve been using that line on chicks all year. Meeting with only moderate success.
I would figure that 160 is the “get ready for Jesus” level. I’m ready.
By the way, “USALiberty,” if this is so gol-danged important....
....why are you using it to get blog hits??????????
The media is also ignoring this guy I met on the subway who told me that his parents were scientists being held in captivity in Iraq (Province #9 of the 13 American Colonies which include every nation on Earth), but they communicate to him via a device in his brain, and they have told him that the Iraq war was so that the U.S. military could prepare a gigantic highway from Babylon to Jerusalem for you know who.
Probably for the same reason.
I hadn't seen this thread.
HERE'S A WARNING FROM OUR OWN SPIRIT-FILLED CHRISTIAN FREEPER WHO IS WORKING ON HIS PHD WITH HIS OWN WEBBOT SOFTWARE:

FOLKS, STAY PRAYED UP, FORGIVE EVERYONE FOR EVERYTHING, REPENT, BE READY.
This is the second such "debate" I have seen in the last week. Some discuss the issues around the end times, while others want to argue. It can be rather easy to get caught up ones own position on the issue. Pre-trib, mid-trib, post-trib, no-trib; on and on it goes.
I have read rationales for various positions on the topic. I have also seen some of those verses that seem to support this position or that one posted with the usual: "see? see? it is obvious that the position I ascribe to is correct!"
I know what position I have concluded has the most scriptural support. I also know that I don't know which scenario God will make happen. I think it is reasonable to conclude none of you do either.
WHY do we all want to get into arguments - that's right, not discussions (although there certainly are some) but arguments over this? I don't know of any scripture that states that one must believe on the mid-trib (or whatever) rapture of the church in order to be saved.
Elsewhere I referred to these issues as nonessential scripture. If one was introducing someone to Jesus Christ would you use the "Romans road", or launch into an apologetic on post-trib rapture? Make no mistake, there are absolutes worth contending for; the deity of Christ - that He was and is God is one of those essentials that draws a dividing line between those who are Christian and these who are not. But why are we slicing and dicing the body over this?
I think all of us who belong to Jesus Christ would agree that salvation through Him is what is desperately needed now, regardless of what is coming or when. A person can rationalize all day that he or she is contending for the faith when the only thing being served is that persons pride. What a waste. If one cannot discuss this issue with kindness, civility and care for those who have concluded differently about end times, then I respectfully recommend that you agree to disagree and just drop it, and get on with what really matters now.
Possibly something involving Iran? Check out these other threads posted today:
Thank you USALiberty; I am pinging Quix’s Level Two End Times list though I realize you folks thereon don’t see the “Rapture Ready” issue all the same way, this seems to be a good thread to put this on, and thanks,

for the following excerpt of a riveting article written by
Then Comes the End...
On July 11, 2010 (1st of Av - Hebrew calendar) the date of the 3rd total solar eclipse in three years, Bob Sheppard, the longtime public address announcer for the NY Yankees baseball team died. He was 99 years old. Two days later, on July 13, George Steinbrenner, the longtime owner of the same sports franchise, died of a heart attack. He was 80 years old.
There are reasons I believe this to be a prophetic sign. The word Yankee is used worldwide as a reference to the citizens of America. George Steinbrenner, the owner of the Yankees, was born on the 4th of July, 1930. He serves as symbol of the American nation, being born on the day of the nations birth, and owning the ultimate symbol of America, her premiere baseball team. His worldly success is a symbol of the American dream. He bought a floundering sports franchise for $10 million dollars and built it into a behemoth valued at $1.6 billion dollars today.
George Steinbrenner had just experienced his 81st 4th of July. The number 81 is 9 times 9. In the Scriptures the number 9 denotes judgment. Furthermore, Steinbrenner died 9 days after he witnessed his 81st Independence Day.
Bob Sheppard was 99. This is a multiple of the numbers 9 and 11. The number 9 once more denotes judgment, and 11 denotes disintegration and disorder.
