Hi Phil, this is not news. but it was a new way of titling it. I posted Jack kelly's article because of the "slant" he took. There Is No Seven Year Tribulation! He says we are taken pre - 70th week. Jack is one of several I really enjoy reading.To Quote Jack:Also, referring to Daniel’s 70th Week (which concerns Israel) as the tribulation (which is worldwide) hides the fact that Israel and the Church can’t co-exist during that time. Because of this, many Christians don’t realize that during Daniel’s 70th Week God’s focus will be on Israel, with its Temple, animal sacrifice, keeping the commandments and all things Jewish. How can the dispensation of Law and the Dispensation of Grace exist in the same place at the same time when the two are theologically incompatible? Truth be told this is perhaps the most compelling reason for a pre 70th Week rapture.After We’re GoneIn Romans 11:25-27 Paul said that Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of Gentiles has come in, but after that Israel will be saved. The Greek word for hardening also means blinded. This is a clear indication that God’s unfinished business with Israel won’t be concluded until he’s finished with the Church. We know He won’t be finished with us until the rapture. Until then Israel will remain at least partly blinded to the truth, just as Jesus warned would happen in Luke -44.This sentiment was echoed at the Greek the phrase translated take from literally means “to take in order to carry away from” and is another reference to the rapture. when James disclosed that God would first take from the Gentiles a people for Himself (the Church) and after that would turn again to Israel (Acts -18).

Phil, you will recall I have been to your timeline and did spend the several hours listening. So my belief has not changed but my termonalogy has to.... pre-70th week
I think Jack Kelly's point is an excellent one and why I posted it.
Your work and study was a labor of love for sure!!
When is the rapture? Beats me........but lets just say my "bags" are at the DOOR! LOL
