A website I like

This is a website I came across a few years ago, and found it both very educational and encouraging. I hadn't been back to it in at least a year or so, but did so yesterday.

I loved what I read because this lady

a) is saved
b) knows the Bible
c) does NOT believe in the pre-trip rapture
d) promotes home birth
e) homeschools

and many other reasons that I do not have time to list here.

When I added her to my blog roll (-----> see right hand column), I realized that her website does not have a blog feed, i.e. she will not appear at the top of the list when she posts something new. Hence this post to let everyone know to check out her site.

  4. Hi, Zsuzsa,
    I have been reading Candy's blog for over 3 years now, what a coincedence! I learned so much from her about cleaning schedules, baking & I even made the Home Management binder she writes about.

    I also have been reading your blog for a long time too! I just don't leave many comments. Both you & Candy are my favorite blogs to read, you are both very smart and have such great posts, worthwile & intellegent.

    Keep up the good work!
    Love,
    Mrs. Wilson

  5. Rose,

    yes, i did, and thought it was interesting.

    Saved Sinner,

    I did not watch the nun story, so I can't answer your question.

    Pascha,

    pre-trip rapture is the belief that all Christians will be "raptured" (i.e. caught up to heaven) before the tribulation/persecution of the last days begins. Personally, I believe that Christians will not be raptured until after the tribulation, and that they will be persecuted during this 3 1/2 year period. I believe that as soon as the Christians are raptures, God will begin to pour out his wrath for approximately another 3 1/2 years.

    Many people call the entire 7 year period the "tribulation", and would therefor call us "mid-trib". But since I use a different term for the first half (tribulation of the believers) and for the second half (God's anger being poured out on the unbelievers that were left behind), I would call my position "post-trip, pre-wrath".

    Honestly, I don't know why people make such a big deal out of this. It's prophecy about the last days. You can find more information on this at my husband's website, www.kjvprophecy.com

    Mrs. Wilson,

    Thank you for your kind words! I'm so glad you go to our church, and that our kids get to have so much fun together. I can't wait for the field trip tomorrow (well, actually, today... I really should go to bed soon).

  6. ZSUZSANNA, this is Candy. Thank you for the very kind words about my blog.

    I like your blog too. It's refreshing to find another Christian who is NOT lukewarm.

    We need more people to stand in the gap and tell out the warnings, for the time really does draw near.

    As for Rapture, I also belive it happens after the first 3.5, and before the second 3.5 years, but I do generally call myself a "pre-tribber," however "pre-wrath" may also fit for me, since my studies have shown that God's full wrath isn't poured out until the seven vials of wrath, which are in the second 3.5 years.

  7. Whoops, I mean I'm a "mid-tribber," not pre.

  8. Candy,

    I figured you meant mid-trib. I think we believe in the same events chronologically, but use slightly different terminology.

    Many people call the entire 7-year period the "tribulation", but if you look up the word tribulation every time it is mentioned in the Bible, it is always talking about Christians undergoing persecution that is brought on by unbelievers. Also, after the rapture occurs, the Bible does not talk about tribulation any more, only the wrath of God being poured out on the unbelievers that were left.

    Therefore, we call the first 3 1/2 years "tribulation", and the second 3 1/2 years "the wrath of God", which makes us "post-trib, pre-wrath", but it is essentially the same chronological order as someone who believes that we will be raptured half-way through a seven-year tribulation.

    This position is different from people who believe that we will be raptured at the end of a 7-year tribulation (which is commonly called post-trib), and which is false as God will not pour out his wrath on the saved.

    Strangely, even though all these questions concern end-times prophecy and not the most fundamental tenets of our beliefs (such as, for example, salvation by faith alone), we have had more pastors denounce my husband because of his "mid-trib" position than for anything else he preaches.

    If you are interested, you can check out his website on this topic, www.kjvprophecy.com

  9. Ah ha, I see your distinction. I will study that, that sounds right on the numbers. I"ll also swing by your husband's site.

    And yes, every Baptist church we've gone to, including the IFB we're members of are pre-trib, but that's okay, as it makes for some really fun conversations. ;-)
