You are not only wrong, you teach false things about the bible. You are just upset that I proved you wrong when you denied the rapture and tribulation are biblical facts.
You prove nothing when you refuse to study the proofs I offer.

Instead you stand upon meaningless quotations of scripture and bogus interpretations of Biblical context.

The Bible nowhere suggests God will evacuate His people from trouble. A few scripture verses taken out of context prove nothing. Rapture is the doctrine of cowards who pretend God will take them away from trouble NOT SEE THEM THROUGH IT as is the contextual promise of scripture from one end of the Bible to the other.

With regard to Francisco Ribera, who penned the false doctrines of Tribulation, Rapture and further End Times dogma I seriously doubt you'd even heard of Ribera until I mentioned his name. You know nothing of what he wrote or didn't write.

But then the discussion isn't about RCC doctrine or at least it shouldn't be about it. It's about God's promises to see His believers THROUGH any of life's difficulties - not to provide a Star Trek mythical beam out when things get dicey. Many saints died believing this. Modern Christians, who don't even study the Bible but rely upon buzz words and religious slogans, don't bother to read the Bible or accept the doctrines therein. Instead they prefer the doctrines of man.

Ignorance isn't bliss. It paves the way to destruction.

Those that refuse to STUDY TO SHOW THEMSELVES APPROVED will appear to all men as foolish - their doctrines as childish fantasies and ancient myths without meaning. As a result the good news of salvation in Christ Jesus will be hidden from the world that needs it.

ISRAEL is his Chosen NATION. We and not that nation, but we are his chosen to become Sons and Daughters.
The 144,000 are all JEWS, and they go into the millennial Kingdom in their Mortal Bodies to repopulate ISRAEL.
We go into the Kingdom in our eternal glorified Bodies.

Acts 13:42-44 (NKJV)
42 So when the Jews went out of the synagogue, the Gentiles begged that these words might be preached to them the next Sabbath.
43 Now when the congregation had broken up, many of the Jews and devout proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.
44 On the next Sabbath almost the whole city came together to hear the word of God.

Jews and Gentiles are TWO different Peoples. Gentiles are NEVER called new Israel. When they convert to Judaism, they are called devout proselytes by Paul himself, not new Israelites.

Romans 2:11 (HCSB)
11 There is no favoritism with God.

That is all that verse means, when HE SAYS:

Romans 10:12 (NIV)
12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile--the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him,

This is another example of Roman Catholic doctrine. Formulated by Francisco Ribera in the late 16th century, this particular heresy is known as Replacement Theology or Supersessionism.

It is entirely false and anti-semitic in nature.

Then again, so is the modern post protestant plastic church.
