LEFT BEHIND: CAN YOU STILL BE SAVED? (Seven Things To Remember!!) Thanks to raptureready Website

This is a must read!  LEFT BEHIND: CAN YOU STILL BE SAVED? (Seven Things To Remember!!)

Older eBay Post Asking, "Do you fear death?"

No, not of death, however, I'm hoping to be spared a lingering death. I nearly drowned when I was very young. I was floating along and remember seeing the blue sky through the water covering my face. It was very peaceful until my sister and one of her friends pulled me to the surface. I recall seeing the terrified look on my face as I held onto something. Perhaps for a short time I left my body, I just don't know but death has never frightened me, however, I'm concerned for my family and I feel that God has more for me to do here..

Sunday services at our park chapel is always uplifting, however, this morning perhaps more so. The pastor talked about one of my favorites, 2 Timothy 4; Paul knows he is about to executed by the Romans and is writing to Timothy:
6 For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. 7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

Good Information - Myths and Facts about Palestine and Israel

From United with Israel:

This clip explores some of the myths spread by the Arab-Palestinian propaganda machine, from the times of the fall of the Ottoman empire after the first World War, through the British Mandate over Palestine, the agreement to establish a Jewish homeland, the partition of trans-Jordan from Palestine, the 1947 UN partition plan and the 1948 war after Israel declared its independence.

Later it goes to more recent events such as the withdrawal from Lebanon and from Gaza which made Israel suffer relentless attacks from the Arab side, not in the name of nationalism but in the name of the religion of Islam.

IMO, most people have no real concept of how very little of the land they were promised after WWI that they (Israel) actually received. Even that little bit of ground is more than the Muslims want Israel to have. Our country has in the past and is currently pushing Israel to give up more land.

Eastern Turkey, lots of Shaking!

Using the information from the USGS, I've been maintaining a database tracking earthquakes for more than a year.  The USGS criteria is Earthquakes Magnitude 2.5 or Greater in the United States and Adjacent Areas and Magnitude 4.5 or Greater in the Rest of the World.
Eastern Turkey had two earthquakes greater than 4.3 the second half of 2010.  Through 10/22/11, during 2011 there had been seven 4.2 or greater earthquakes in Eastern Turkey.  Today, 10/23/11, so far there have been 17 earthquakes with a Magnitude of 4.2 to 7.2.
Sign of the times?  To be continue.
