Unreported News, Commentary, Resources and Discussion of Bible Prophecy

Our mission board won't have us because we don't agree with their statement of faith anymore. My own Pastor will drop our monthly support and will definately "bench us for life" from ever preaching or teaching Sunday School. All of our other supporting churches will more than likely drop us like 'heretics.' AND my in-laws (a church planter/evangelist) will probably disown us!
My church teaches that Trib-saints (another unbiblical term) are saved by works plus faith (Ruckmanism...oh! what would Paul say!?) And the Post-Trib viewpoint takes GRACE ALONE right up to the Second Coming! That is a salvation issue! Trib-saints are saints by believing in Jesus!
Don't worry about your church God will open the doors he wants you to go through.

What an amazing testimony! I agree with BChandler's prayer, and all the words of encouragement you have received here.
A wonderful friend who is the ministry with her husband just told me she is pre-wrath recently. I read several scriptures to her--solidifying the pre-wrath standpoint, and she agreed. This scriptural stand clears up all the unbelievable (literally) gymnastics a teacher must do to make the pre-trib theory work. Pre-wrath really does simplify the Bible!
And once a believer who is coming from pre-trib gets over the shock of the idea s/he might actually die for their faith, the sensation is wonderfully freeing!!! (I'm not being glib here...I know how difficult it is, and I'm praying through it myself, especially where my children are concerned.)
The end times prophecies once again become clear, chronological and believable.
May you and your wife feel and know Jesus' deep love for you both, and be led by His Spirit.
I hear some scary things from other members of the Church at times because of their pre-trib view. Such as "We don't have to worry about having microchips implanted, because it won't be 'the mark' because we'll be gone when that happens."
If those people exactly said “It won’t be the mark” then I can see how pre-trib viewers are being led astray. I mean, I did not think it was such a big deal to be a pre, mid or post until now?

I have been nicely asked to leave my church, and my wife's family is very, very upset (as in, "the door is shutting").
I will be notifying our mission board this week; time table was a little bit off, so I didn't let the cat out of the bag until Saturday.
I have been called a heretic, teaching doctrine of devils, etc.
LOL Ain't it all grand?
I am actually enjoying the whole thing. My wife says I am a Vulcan. Not really, but I do get a kick out of watching folks 'carry on.'
