"The stone which the builders rejected,
the same is made the head of the corner,
AND ROCK OF OFFENCE."
Taken From 1 Peter 2:7-8 and Psalm 118:22
(Emphasis And Clarifications Added)
Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be
unaware that all our fathers (speaking of
the Israelites) were under the cloud, all
passed through the sea, all were baptized
into Moses in the cloud and in the sea,
all ate the same spiritual food, and all
drank the same spiritual drink. For they
drank of that spiritual Rock that followed
them, AND THAT ROCK WAS CHRIST.
(The Words of Saint Paul From 1 Corinthians 10:1-4)
“Do not think that I came to bring peace on
earth. I did not come to bring peace but a
sword. For I have come to ‘set a man against
his father, a daughter against her mother, and
a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’;
and a man's enemies will be those of his own
(The Words of Christ From Matthew 10: 34-36)
Celebrating The Resurrection of Jesus Christ Every Day
And Jesus cried out again with a loud
voice, and yielded up His spirit. Then,
behold, the veil of the temple was torn
in two from top to bottom; and the earth
quaked, and the rocks were split, and
the graves were opened; and many bodies
of the saints who had fallen asleep were
raised; and coming out of the graves
after His resurrection, they went into
the holy city and appeared to many. So
when the centurion and those with him,
who were guarding Jesus, saw the earth-
quake and the things that had happened,
they feared greatly, saying,
“Truly this was the Son of God!”
The angel said to the women, “Do not be
alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth,
who was crucified. He is risen! He is
not here. See the place where they laid Him.
But go, tell His disciples—and Peter—that
He is going before you into Galilee; there
you will see Him, as He said to you.”

Important Bible Prophecy Scriptures
"Looking for that blessed hope, and
the glorious appearing of the great
God and our Saviour Jesus Christ...
"So Christ was once offered to bear
the sins of many; and unto them that
look for Him shall He appear the second
time without sin unto salvation."
For I have received of the Lord that
which also I delivered unto you, that
the Lord Jesus the same night in which
he was betrayed took bread: And when
he had given thanks, he brake it, and
said, Take, eat: this is my body,
which is broken for you: this do in
remembrance of me. After the same
manner also he took the cup, when he
had supped, saying, This cup is the
new covenant in my blood: this do ye,
as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance
of me. For as often as ye eat this
bread, and drink this cup,
YE DO SHOW THE LORD'S DEATH
TILL HE COMES.
(1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
(God is speaking)
And in that day will I make Jerusalem
a burdensome stone for all people:
all that burden themselves with it
shall be cut in pieces, though all
the people of the earth be gathered
together against it.
(God is speaking)
"I have chosen Jerusalem that
My name might be there."
(2 Chronicles 6:6)
(God is speaking)
"And it shall come to pass in that day,
that I will seek to destroy all the
nations that come against Jerusalem."
Israel's Return to Their Promised Land is a Testimony to God’s Faithfulness and a warning that Christ's return is near.
After approximately 1900 years, and against all odds - Israel became a nation once again in 1948 and ... according to the God of the
Bible, Jerusalem is her eternal capital. Israel's right to possess the land God gave to her through an ‘everlasting covenant’ with Abraham (recorded in Genesis 12:1-7 and 13:14-18) does not depend on their ability to keep this covenant. It depends only on God's promise which is established on His eternal integrity and truthfulness. For this reason, any Christian minister who contradicts Bible prophecy and teaches that Israel is now illegally occupying their land - is essentially denying this major eternal covenant of the Bible and suggesting that God's promise in this case is irrevelant. As a result-and due to the seriousness of this error-we should closely examine the way these ministers teach all other subjects from the Bible regardless of their seminary credentials.
Warnings about three major events that
are currently "changing your world".
Are you one of the many walking in
"strong delusion"...or are you walking
...with all unrighteous deception among those who
perish, because they did not receive the love of
the truth, that they might be saved. And for this
reason God will send them strong delusion, that
they should believe the lie, that they all may be
condemned who did not believe the truth but had
pleasure in unrighteousness.
(2 Thessalonians 2:10-13)
"Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. God
will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to
speak. Not to act is to act."
A great evil has taken over America through
the 2020 elections that will change everything
on earth. You can find various news
Following the American 2020 election debacle,
our enemies are now seizing the opportunity to
to make long awaited conquests all over the
world that could begin WW3. Rather than discuss
the details here, more information can be
obtained HERE and HERE
Due to these threats, Christians have specific
promises from God that provide comfort and
assurance, such as the ones below. We
should all be praying for God's protection,
especially over our families during this time
of wickedness...which may be signaling the
start of the 7 year Tribulation period spoken
of in the Bible ... and the imminent pre-
Tribulational rapture of the Church.
Except for those Christians (in a minority) who
seek truth--America (as a majority) is no longer
a country where it can be said; "In God We Trust"
...but has now become a country deceived into
thinking they are "Good Without God". Bible history
warns that such a condition often exists shortly
before Divine judgment falls. We think it is
beginning to fall NOW.
"When the enemy comes in like a flood, The
Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard
against him." (Isaiah 59:19)
(Partial Quote from Psalms 91)
"He who dwells in the secret place of the
Most High shall abide under the shadow of
the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He
is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in
Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver
you from the snare of the fowler and from
the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you
with His feathers, and under His wings you
shall take refuge; His truth shall be your
shield and buckler.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by
night, nor of the arrow that flies by day,
nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
nor of the destruction that lays waste at
noonday. A thousand may fall at your side,
and ten thousand at your right hand; but it
shall not come near you. Only with your eyes
shall you look, and see the reward of the
Because you have made the Lord, who is my
refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling
place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall
any plague come near your dwelling;
(God is now speaking directly to believers)
“Because he has set his love upon Me,
therefore I will deliver him; I will set
him on high, because he has known My
name. He shall call upon Me, and I will
answer him; I will be with him in
trouble; I will deliver him and honor
him. With long life I will satisfy him,
and show him My salvation.”
[ End of Bible Quote ]
We often allow various ministers to speak on
our site, when they hold the same positions
as we do on important subjects. This does
not necessarily mean that we agree on every
point of doctrine. In this current crisis
involving the likely beginning of WW3, the
Coronavirus--and the horrific wicked agenda
America has now embraced...the following
messages to the church given by Olive Tree
Ministries (concerning the Fall of America)
along with J.D. Farag, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny,
Dr. Ryan Cole and Michael Yeadon former VP
of Pfizer (on the coronavirus) needs to be
heard by all Christians.
Why We Give A Specific Warning
About the Corona-virus Pandemic and
How it is Being Handled
This is the final "end-game" plan the Bible warns about!
A growing number of Bible prophecy teachers (including this ministry) believe that the Corona-virus and the soon-to-be mandatory "shots" is the vehicle that will usher in the Tribulation period foretold by Jesus, the prophet Daniel and Saint John. The news media (and the powerful people who control them) are now positioning themselves using "mass fear and panic" to manipulate the public and to make the shots mandatory in order to buy, sell, remain employed, travel and conduct normal business. This is exactly the way the Bible describes; "The mark of the beast" that the anti-christ uses to control the remaining population of the world during the Tribulation. As a result, this subject should be of utmost importance to all Bible-believing Christians. Yet, a vast majority of church leaders and their followers ignore or mock these warnings...and like those of Noah's day - will be caught off-guard. Jesus said it this way...
"For in those days (speaking of the days we are now living in) there will be tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time, nor ever shall be." (Mark 13:19 NKJV)
"But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that day come upon you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare (or suddenly--out of nowhere) on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man." (Luke 21:25-36 NKJV -- Emphasis Added)
According to the Bible, early in the Tribulation the death of around 2 billion people takes place (with more to follow later). The world population is currently about 8 billion. Globalists, such as billionaire Bill Gates, are openly talking about the urgent need for a worldwide depopulation effort to guarantee the survival of the human race. That sounds good until you realize that Gates is actually talking about mass genocide on a scale never seen before. It is also interesting that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is at the forefront of the current global vaccination effort ... which takes us into the following comments by a prominent and respected immunologist.
A shocking interview given to both LifeSite News and "Americas Frontline Doctors" by Dr. Michael Yeadon (Former Pfizer VP--Yes, the same Pfizer that now makes one of the so called "vaccines") is not presented from the perspective of Bible prophecy, but warns--in strong scientific terms, about the same soon-to-occur outcome. As a result, Yeadon pleads with his audience that the public "must work like crazy to make sure this doesn't happen", but admits that this deadly health crisis (caused by the vaccines and not the virus) is probably unstoppable at this point.
Yeadon, continues his warning by saying, "I'm well aware of the global crimes against humanity being perpetrated against a large proportion of the worlds population....I have absolutely no doubt that we are in the presence of evil (not a determination I've ever made in a 40-year research career) and dangerous products."
Yeadon then states that; "...Vaccinating as many of the population as they can, is 'madness'. That with people in good health and under the age of 60 years old vaccinating them is 'wholly unethical to administer something novel and for which the potential for unwanted effects are after a few months is completely uncharacterized.'"
We Are Now Receiving A Warning That The Tribulation Period Is About To Begin
Bible Prophecy warns about the horrific end-time events that take place during the 7 year Tribulation and the reign of a ruthless world leader know as "the anti-christ". A preview or "the beginning stages" are currently unfolding before our very eyes. Many are now asking questions about the anti-christ and what form "the mark of the beast" will take.
First of all, we need to make two important statements. First, we are not part of the controversial "Anti-Vaxx" group (at least not yet). We have taken vaccines in the past and will do so again if we are convinced they are needful and safe. Secondly, the various Corona-virus shots are not "the mark of the beast". Yet, as one pastor recently warned; "It will soon become "the mark" (using "Quantum-dot technology" that is already developed).
Various government officials are now warning that everyone will be required to take 'the shots' in order to "buy, sell, remain employed, travel and conduct business as usual." This is exactly the way the Bible describes "the mark of the beast" - and it’s no coincidence that the Tribulation is now imminent--according to a timeline revealed by the Lord Jesus Christ in the New Testament.
We do not have the right to tell anyone to either take the Corona-virus shots - or avoid them. Everyone must be free to decide what to allow into their own body.
Yet, the Bible demands that God's ministers must sound a warning, when certain dangerous situations threaten His people. Contrary to its supporters--what everyone is calling "a vaccine" is not actually a vaccine. It's man-made "gene therapy" (designed in a lab) that alters your DNA in ways that are irreversible and currently unknown. This "gene therapy" also alters God's original "human design", which is a practice He forbids and condemns. Vaccine manufacturers reluctantly confess that their product does indeed alter your DNA. One CEO bragged that they were actually ‘hacking the software of life’ – and did not know the long-term effects. As a result, many "injuries and permanent disabilities" are now occurring - some resulting in death...and numbers are increasing. According to medical scientists such as retired Pfizer VP, Dr. Michael Yeadon, we will likely see the vaccine death rate skyrocket toward the end of this year. That alone should give anyone a reason, especially Christians, to question this program. Additional information is provided in the various videos and articles found in this section. Pay particular attention to Daystar Christian network’s interview of Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, the updates of Calvery Chapel Pastor J.D. Farag, the informative interview featuring Dr. Ryan Cole...and the shocking commentaries by Michael Yeadon (former Pfizer VP)--provided below.
Let No One Deceive You...
What many 'people of faith' do not know is that the government has quietly enlisted thousands of ministers to "spread their pro-vaccine narrative" and to help them "control the people"--who should only be 'controlled' by God. If you are a Christian who is truly committed to Christ, it's important to understand that your pastor may be part of this group. As a result and contrary to their message; you are not "Expressing the love of Jesus" nor are you "Doing your public duty or caring for your fellow citizens" by receiving these experimental (and unethical) gene altering substances.
The following is an important interview and
warning given by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny on
Daystar Christian network. This is a
"must hear" interview for all Christians and
concerned Americans. It is currently being
"censored" on the popular social media

America is currently involved in an internal
domestic coup designed to keep the country
under a godless and god-hating globalist
agenda. Some are referring to it as
'an American communist revolution'. Both
police and private citizens are being killed.
A politically motivated shooter recently fired
at a group of Republican congressmen on a
baseball field in Virginia, nearly killing
U.S. House of Representatives Steve Scalise.
Last week, another shooter fired on a country
music concert in Las Vegas killing 59 and
wounding nearly 500. One miliary analyst said
that this level of killing is rarely seen on
a battlefield during a time of war.
As a result of these escalating attacks, many
are warning that we are now in the beginning
stages of a 2nd civil war. The implications
for Christians are obvious. Additional

Various Studies and Presentations
that answer the question ...
"What is the Gospel?"
This is a YouTube Presentation by
Dr. Billy Graham entitled;
"Who is Jesus?"
It is considered to be one of his
greatest evangelistic messages.
This is a YouTube Presentation by
Dr. Charles Stanley entitled;
"What Does It Mean To Be Born-Again?"
This is a YouTube Presentation by
Joseph Prince that describes the
often misunderstood subject of
"Grace" and how it relates to the
Gospel of Christ.
If you are a saved, blood-bought beleiver in Christ--you already possess Christ's perfect righteousness, which also fully qualifies you to participate in the rapture (See 2 Corinthians 5:21, Romans 4:4-8 and Romans 5:17-19).
The Rapture is a Grace-based 'Salvation Event' for all believers in Christ Jesus...which includes those who possess an abundance of good works and Christ-like character attributes...as well as those who are deficient in these things.
The Rapture is often described as 'a reward for righteous living, faithfulness, Christian service - and achieving the status of 'overcomer'.
However, the New Testament warns that these character attributes, which are all good things when performed for the right reasons...become part of a dangerously false gospel message when used as qualifications for the rapture.
The rapture, or "the catching away of the Church" as taught by Saint Paul, is a 'Grace-based (unmerited and undeserved) salvation event' based only on faith in Christ alone, which is why it must never be viewed as a reward for religious performance and good behavior.
Therefore, if you believe in your heart that God raised Christ from the dead and have confessed with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord...you are now saved and possess eternal life according to Romans 10:9-10, Ephesians 2:8-9 and Titus 3:5-7. By receiving God's gift of eternal life, you are now fully qualified to participate in the rapture, which is the fulfillment and conclusion of the Church's Grace-based and blood-bought salvation. According to Ephesians 2:4-9 and Romans 4:4-8, salvation is given 'by faith in Christ alone--apart from works', which also applies to the rapture as part of Christ's finished redemptive work at the cross. When preachers redefine the rapture as a reward for personal merit and righteous living - they are subtly denying Christ's Grace-based salvation...which includes its fulfilment at the rapture.
Once again--and Contrary to popular church teachings, no true believer in Christ will be left behind for a lack of righteous works, poor behavior or failing to achieve the status of 'overcomer'.
Since the rapture is directly connected to Christ's salvation by Grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8-9) and is so utterly distorted and maligned by popular well-meaning ministers within Christendom...it is necessary to include various studies designed to address dangerous misconceptions which lead many astray. As a result, the rapture and Christ's Gospel of Salvation are part of the same truth, which makes them inseparable.
This is why the rapture is not just for a special group of "overcoming believers", but for all believers who have "called upon the name of the Lord to be saved" - according to Romans 10:9-13.
Many false teachings concerning the
Rapture of the Church are the result
of misinterpreting the Greek word
"apostasia" in 2 Thessalonians 2:3,
which is often thought to mean "apostasy"
(or a "falling away from the Christian
faith"). This popular misconception is
addressed by Dr. Thomas Ice in the
No minister, church or denomination is
allowed to define - by decree - any
tenants of the Christian faith that
contradict or disagree with the ones
found in Christ's New Covenant that
began after the cross. God established
the Scriptures (His Word) as the final
authority on all such matters. This is
often referred to as "Sola Scriptura".
Because of His great love for us, God has made eternal life a free and unmerited gift through our redemption, which is pre-paid by Christ. If you want to take God up on His offer, Franklin Graham offers some instructions about what to do next.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)
But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it (salvation) is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. (Ephesians 2:4-9)
