    Trusting the promises of God in inspired Scripture is never arrogance.

    It is based on His merit, imputed at the cross, through His blood that paid the penalty for our sins, and on no merit of our own.

    Irenaeus
    Irenaeus
    (130 A.D. – 202 AD) was a bishop of the church in Lyons, France. He was an eyewitness to the Apostle John (who wrote the Book of Revelation) and a disciple of Polycarp, the first of the Apostle John’s disciples. Irenaeus is most-known for his five-volume treatise, Against Heresies in which he exposed the false religions and cults of his day along with advice for how to share the Gospel with those were a part of them.

    In his writings on Bible prophecy, he acknowledged the phrase “a time, times and dividing of times” in Daniel 7 to signify the 3 ½ year reign of the Antichrist as ruler of the world before the Second Coming of Christ. He also believed in a literal Millennial reign of Christ on earth following the Second Coming and the resurrection of the just.

    On the subject of the Rapture, in
    Against Heresies 5.29, he wrote:

    “Those nations however, who did not of themselves raise up their eyes unto heaven, nor returned thanks to their Maker, nor wished to behold the light of truth, but who were like blind mice concealed in the depths of ignorance, the word justly reckons “as waste water from a sink, and as the turning-weight of a balance — in fact, as nothing;”(1) so far useful and serviceable to the just, as stubble conduces towards the growth of the wheat, and its straw, by means of combustion, serves for working gold. And therefore, when in the end the Church shall be suddenly caught up from this, it is said, “There shall be tribulation such as has not been since the beginning, neither shall be.”(2) For this is the last contest of the righteous, in which, when they overcome they are crowned with incorruption.”

    Irenaeus in this passage describes the church leaving the sinful world just before unprecedented disasters. Note his use of the term “caught up” which is Rapture terminology as that is the meaning of harpazo, the term for caught upin the King James Bible describing the Rapture in 1 Thessalonians 4. He then quotes Matthew 24:21 where The Lord Jesus Christ says: “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” And it is during this time that those who convert to Christianity during the final years will receive the incorruptible crown mentioned by the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 9:25. In Irenaeus’ belief, the Rapture took place prior to the end times Great Tribulation.

    Cyprian
    Cyprian (200 AD – 258 AD) – Cyprian was Bishop of the church in Carthage. During his short stint as leader of the church, he guided the flock through intense persecution at the hands of the Roman Empire. In 258 AD after spending seven months of confinement to his home by order of Roman authorities, he was beheaded for his faith. Several of his works still exist today.

    In
    Treatises of Cyprian he wrote in describing the end times Great Tribulation:

    “We who see that terrible things have begun, and know that still more terrible things are imminent, may regard it as the greatest advantage to depart from it as quickly as possible. Do you not give God thanks, do you not congratulate yourself, that by an early departure you are taken away, and delivered from the shipwrecks and disasters that are imminent? Let us greet the day which assigns each of us to his own home, which snatches us hence, and sets us free from the snares of the world and restores us to paradise and the kingdom.”

    Again we see use of language commonly found in reference to the Rapture as Cyprian describes the judgments of the end times as “imminent.” And he makes his belief on the timing of the Rapture when he wrote that Christians will have an “early departure” and be “delivered” from the devastating global judgments that come during the Day of The Lord.

    In line with the Apostle Paul who wrote that God has not appointed us to wrath, but salvation...” Cyprian expressed joy and encourages the believing reader to rejoice that the Church will be “taken away” before the disastrous Great Tribulation. Just as The Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 24 used the same language of one taken away and the other left.” Additionally Cyprian references the mansions which The Lord Jesus Christ promises to come back and take His believers to in John 14.

    “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” – John 14:1-3.

    As Beginning and End detailed in our article The Red Moon Rapture – The Biblical Timing of The Rapture, in both the Matthew 24 passages (“one taken, the other left”) and in John 14 (“..receive you unto myself..”) the Greek work paralambanō is used for taken and receive. The meaning of that word is “join to one’s self” indicating that Jesus is coming to fully unify with His church – which takes place at the Rapture. Clearly Cyprian believed and taught that the Rapture takes place before the Great Tribulation.

    Ephraim The Syrian

    Ephraim
    (306 AD – 373 AD) was made a deacon in the church in Syria in 338 and later became the bishop of Nisibis. Although he was made a “saint” in the Roman Catholic Church, he was not involved in Catholicism and did not even live in the Roman Empire until the final years of his life. The book Pseudo Ephraim was one of his still existing works. It was called “Pseudo” because of later dispute over authorship. However the book’s one reference to the rapture is very compelling:

    In his work, On The Last Times 2, he wrote:

    “We ought to understand thoroughly therefore, my brothers, what is imminent or overhanging. Already there have been hunger and plagues, violent movements of nations and signs, which have been predicted by the Lord, they have already been fulfilled (consummated), and there is not other which remains, except the advent of the wicked one in the completion of the Roman kingdom. Why therefore are we occupied with worldly business, and why is our mind held fixed on the lusts of the world or on the anxieties of the ages? Why therefore do we not reject every care of worldly business, and why is our mind held fixed on the lusts of the world or on the anxieties of the ages? Why therefore do we not reject every care of earthly actions and prepare ourselves for the meeting of the Lord Christ, so that he may draw us from the confusion, which overwhelms all the world? Believe you me, dearest brother, because the coming (advent) of the Lord is nigh, believe you me, because the end of the world is at hand, believe me, because it is the very last time.

    Or do you not believe unless you see with your eyes? See to it that this sentence be not fulfilled among you of the prophet who declares: “Woe to those who desire to see the day of the Lord!” For all the saints and elect of God are gathered, prior to the tribulation that is to come, and are taken to the Lord lest they see the confusion that is to overwhelm the world because of our sins. And so, brothers most dear to me, it is the eleventh hour, and the end of the world comes to the harvest, and angels, armed and prepared, hold sickles in their hands, awaiting the empire of the Lord. And we think that the earth exists with blind infidelity, arriving at its downfall early. Commotions are brought forth, wars of diverse peoples and battles and incursions of the barbarians threaten, and our regions shall be desolated, and we neither become very much afraid of the report nor of the appearance, in order that we may at least do penance; because they hurl fear at us, and we do not wish to be changed, although we at least stand in need of penance for our actions!”

    >With a sense of urgency and strong warning, Ephraim writes that the end times are upon this world and could start at any moment. This text very clearly states the saints and elect of God, all born again believers in The Lord Jesus Christ, will be “taken to the Lord” before the Great Tribulation. Ephraim also identifies the Old Testament “Day of The Lord” and the end times Great tribulation as the same event (in line with the teachings of the Beginning and End Rapture Series). Ephraim quotes Amos 5:18 which says: “Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.”

    The point he makes is that a Christian should know the Day of The Lord is coming. In the first part of the passage Ephraim notes that:

    “We ought to understand thoroughly therefore, my brothers, what is imminent or overhanging. Already there have been hunger and plagues, violent movements of nations and signs, which have been predicted by the Lord, they have already been fulfilled (consummated)” And not only that but that true Christians will be taken away before it starts.

    Here he is describing the first 3 of the first 4 seals of Revelation 6 – wars, famines and plagues. These are the same end times signs Jesus Christ describes in Matthew 24:

    And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. – Matthew 24:3-8.

    Jesus describes these events as the beginning of sorrows.” He also says that when these things come to pass the end is not yet.” Ephraim’s writing agrees with this interpretation as he says those same events have been “fulfilled (consummated)” in his day, but it was still not the actual Great Tribulation. This also falls in line with Beginning and End’s Rapture series as explained in our article Who Are The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse? (The first four seals of Revelation 6 were opened at the time Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven. And the rapture itself does not occur until the opening of the 6th Seal.)

    Ephraim in very strong language warns the reader not to be consumed with the cares of the world because the world in its current form, is coming to an end. As the Second Advent or Coming of The Lord Jesus Christ grows near, believers are to look to Heaven and set their hearts on pleasing God. It is clear that Ephraim distinguishes the Second Coming of Christ from the rapture, placing the Rapture before the Great Tribulation to come.

    The Early Church Believed In The Rapture

    The ancient writings are clear – the belief in the Rapture has existed since the days of the Apostles.

    Although there are not a great number of writings on the end times from the early centuries of the church, there is no question that there was a belief in the Rapture among the church fathers and they taught it with strong language and scriptural support. In terms of the timing of the Rapture, the early church fathers placed it before the end times Day of The Lord/Great Tribulation. The writings of early saints in the church are not Scripture and should not be treated on the same level of the Bible. These writings also do not “prove” that the pre-Great Tribulation Rapture or the Beginning and End Rapture series are correct. Only rightly divided Scripture from the Bible can determine if a specific belief is accurate or in error. But the writings of church fathers can serve as useful commentaries (just as we use Bible commentaries today in our studies) and certainly prove that the Rapture doctrine existed well before John Darby and has been a part of Christian belief since the earliest days of the Apostles.

    “And then Catholics, who portray chastity as the highest ideal and the best lifestyle, try to convince us that they are pro family and pro marriage, all the while demeaning and degrading wthose who are.”

    Even worse.

    They denigrate the choice of God, who created sex as a gift to man and woman, pronounced it good, commanded couples not to withhold sex except for a short time, and said ...

    “Oh, lover and beloved, eat and drink! Yes, drink deeply of your love!”

    And

    “Let her breasts satisfy you at all times; Be exhilarated always with her love.”

    So called “infancy gospel” is bogus:

    “The Infancy Narrative of James is also known as the Protevangelium of James. In The Other Gospels, Ron Cameron says that the name Protevangelium “implies that most of the events recorded in this ‘initial gospel’ of James occur prior to those recorded in the gospels of the New Testament.”

    ***The gospel received this name when it was first published in the sixteenth century.***

    “There are about one hundred and thirty Greek manuscripts containing the Infancy Gospel of James, but ***the vast majority of these come from the tenth century or later.***

    ***The earliest known manuscript of the text was found in 1958***; it is now kept in Geneva’s Bodmer Library. The manuscript dates to the third century; however, according to Cameron, “many of its readings seem to be secondary.”

    “Cameron identifies three different sources for the Infancy Gospel of James: extracanonical traditions, the Old Testament, and the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. The mythical element of birth in a cave, for example, is an extracanonical also known to Justin Martyr. Cameron states of the author’s use of Jewish scriptures: “Not only are individual words, phrases, and even whole paragraphs reminiscent of the Septuagint; such discrete forms as the hymn and the lament of Anna also display conscious, direct ‘remembrance’ of the stories recorded in the scriptures.” Concerning the use of the canonical gospels, Cameron observes, “Frequently the respective passages in Matthew and Luke are harmonized into a single story in the Protevangelium of James; in some instances the two texts are conflated. It is by combining composite traditions with a harmony of the synoptic infancy stories that the Protevangelium of James has constructed the dramatic scenes of its gospel.”

    "unless you can show something in the canonized scriptures which contradict the story, perhaps you’ll forgive me for thinking the “Infancy Gospel of James” more accurate than your own assumptions on the matter. :)"

    So, anything the Scriptures don't directly address - any hoax, any unverifiable truth claim, etc. - you will assume is "accurate?"

    Certainly, this would have to include claims like Joseph Smith's that Christ visited America?

    Perhaps you will forgive me for thinking that Inspired Scripture has ultimate authority over these other claims.

    So why do Catholics get the vapors over the thought that Mary had sex and bore other children?

    To uphold the bullwork supporting Mary as a DemiGoddess, she must be above human, but slightly below God.

    So she is portrayed as without sin from birth (not found in Scripture).
    So she is portrayed as having no "sinful" desires, like sex (not found in Scripture).
    So she must not just be Jesus' mother, but everyone's mother
    So she is able to answer prayer, appear as an apparition, bend Jesus to her will, etc.

    "It is demonstrably not false; the financial advisors I know (and I know quite a few) all adapt the same strategy— get leads to find wealthiest clients and hook in as many as possible to gain wealth— NOT grow portfolios."

    Given that I was an RIA for 27 years, I can tell you that not everyone is as you describe. I know many, many advisors who work hard to grow portfolios. That is not to say there are not those like your friends. I suggest you choose a different group.
    If you are telling me you honestly believe that financial advisors make money by building wealth and not by marketing and expanding client base I’ve got a bridge to sell you.

    Same. I was the president of a very large association of investment managers. There are great ones out there.
    When you have 50 clients like me with assets at or over $1M and you are getting 1%+; you get at least $500k per year if you never make them another penny.

    I managed a large multiple of that, including a mutual fund and hedge fund. If we did not grow money, we might lose clients. It was not in our best interest to lose money in the markets. It wasn't in the client's best interest to lose money. Worked great.

    You are leaving out the costs of running a professional firm, by the way. It isn't all gravy. Just staying compliant is extremely expensive.

    My personal advisor is managing a bit more than that, and she gets very disturbed when I bring this up— I would prefer an arrangement where she is incentivized and is forced to gain wealth by making money on every portfolio, instead of just by expanding client base and coasting. That would force her to do actual analysis, take risk, and be accountable for decisions instead of just parking money in different places. She is the best I have found, because she is like family and absolutely trust her to treat my money like her own, but I want someone who wants to get rich, not treat my money like their own.

    You have the wrong advisor, given your expressed preferences. May I suggest you LEAVE and find an advisor you believe is aligned with your purposes? If you stay, you have only yourself to blame. I think you'd be happier if you left.

    You may qualify as an accredited investor, to have a performance based fee instead of asset-based.

    Good luck.

    "Do you not know, brothers and sisters—for I am speaking to those who know the law—that the law has authority over someone only as long as that person lives? 2 For example, by law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law that binds her to him. 3 So then, if she has sexual relations with another man while her husband is still alive, she is called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is released from that law and is not an adulteress if she marries another man.

    4 So, my brothers and sisters, you also died to the law through the body of Christ, that you might belong to another, to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God. 5 For when we were in the realm of the flesh,[a] the sinful passions aroused by the law were at work in us, so that we bore fruit for death. 6 But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code.

    Romans 7:1-6

    Thanks be to God that the believer is necronomian!

    My question is why in the world would President Trump want to ditch this group that returns over TWO TIMES it's budget back to our government!

    My question is why would the government think its purpose is to run a business??

    Government does to much, so I’m with you.

    It would be great to not automatically give them budget increases each year.

    “We shield drug makers from liability because the products they make allows civilization to advance.”

    Or because of legions of lobbyists buying politicians, and the revolving door between Pharma/CDC/FDA.
