China surpassed the U.S. to become the world’s biggest trading nation last year as measured by the sum of exports and imports of goods, official figures from both countries show.
U.S. exports and imports of goods last year totaled $3.82 trillion, the U.S.

Commerce Department said last week. China’s customs administration reported last month that the country’s trade in goods in 2012 amounted to $3.87 trillion. source – Bloomberg

  1. 1 Peter 5:8
    King James Version (KJV)

    8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

    Im sure Obama is pleased with these numbers. Another step America takes towards the cliff. Or as Obama would clarify…leading from behind.

  3. Arthurdurio says:

    Get ready ,Obama is going to be a dictator by the end of this term, and we will be a third rate country, and we as Americans are letting him rule us as slaves.

    New York, I see you like to read and study. Please take the time to look and read this whole study on the rapture. It has a link whaere you can listen to a show on that page as well. Keep an open mind on the pre-trib. You see it isn’t the church that goes through the tribulation but Israel “The Jews” He has unfinshed business with them not us. The bride will be with Jesus when He comes back to Throw satan in to eternal hell. Please before you reply, review the full site and listen to the show which is on the left hand corner of the page.

    Also there will be a show tonight on it at 9:00… Feel free to join us. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/nteb/2013/02/11/looking-for-that-blessed-hope

    • As far as the Jews being the only ones going through the tribulation that is false. Why?

      Because Jesus talks about tribulation and rapture in Matthew 24.

      I know what your going to say. Jesus is speaking to the Jews or about the Jews only. That can be easily discerned with scripture.

      Well if you read Mark 13 which is the parallel passages to Matthew 24

      You will see that Jesus himself states directly.

      Mark 13:37
      37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

      So Jesus is not just speaking to just or about just Jews specifically and he makes that clear in the scriptures in this verse (Mark 13:37)

      What is he saying to watch for?. The signs he said to watch for including the signs in sun, moon and stars that also that match up with signs in sun and moon in all other rapture verses tied with day of the Lord

      I study the scriptures in depth with just me and the holy spirit and prayer.

      I have read the whole site in depth already. I have read everything and listed to show by Dr. Peacock on NTEB radio show as well as many other shows you have done. I enjoy this site and its information and the radio shows.

      However there is an err in pre tribulation. I am well of aware of how Dr. Peacock tries to tie it all into pre tribulation rapture. I study everything on pre tribulation. As the bible states we are to study. I used to be a pre tribulation believer till I sat down and actually studied this stuff myself with the Lords help and with much prayer. I have been shown the truth whether you believe that or not.

      Why do I study both sides. Well you
      can’t rebuke a subject you know nothing about. So I continually study everything.

      I have already studied everything you have said but have you studied anything I have been saying? I am sure we could help each other out.

      Again Jesus specifically said in Mark 13:37 what I say unto you, I SAY UNTO ALL Watch

      Jesus clearly stated in scripture that it is not just the Jews he is speaking of or about. Mark 13 is the parallel passage to Matthew 24. Talking about gathering together, signs in sun moon stars which happens after tribulation before day of Lord.

      The bible is meant to be easily understood by all not confusing. I always listen to everyone of your radio shows. :)

      No where does the bible say you need a scholar to discern Gods word. I might also add that Jesus chastised the scholars when he was here and they cursed him and eventually crucified him for it.

      I am not here to hurt anyone. Merely help them to find the truth. Which is not complex but very easy. Back to basics just the individual and the Lord with prayer.

    Dear New York,

    I was thinking the very same thing that usc4life2 wrote.
    It’s when we mix Israel/Jews up with this age of grace that confusion sets in. Jesus Christ appointed Paul the Apostle to the Gentiles and he wrote the books of Romans thru Philemon. If you separate those books and read them as if written to you today and read most of the other books of the Bible as written about Israel and to the Jews for for the time of the Tribulation you will see the difference. It’s called Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth. Paul told us to rightly divide the word of truth and to study to show ourselves approved a workman unto God. You obviously study…now show yourself approved by studying correctly. Look for information on this Dispensation of Grace and blogs about Rightly Dividing the Word.
    I believed like you a few years ago. Yet, there was always those confusing versus that seemed to contradict…it rarely happens to me any more now that I check to see who the text is written to and why.
    I hope you really listen to the show tonight also :)

    Blessings to you,
    L

    • I have explained that as clearly as possible with the parallel passage to Matthew 24 which is Mark 13

      Jesus specifically stated it is not the just the Jews in:

      Mark 13:37
      37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

    • If Paul was appointed to the Gentiles then why does Paul twice tie the rapture to the day of the Lord?

      Read 1 Thess 4:16——- throught 1 Thess 5:10

      You will see that Paul ties it to the day of the Lord and he is telling us to watch for those signs.

      Paul again states this very thing only this time in the same chapter and verses of 2 Thess 2:1-3

      He refers to the day of the Lord again, but again it is all in the 3 verses in the same chapter tied together.

      Mark 13:37 Jesus was speaking to ALL as I have shown.

      So what is this telling us? That they are all talking to everyone about the same things. :) With the help of Jesus Christ. Amen and God bless us all for actually sitting down and discussing this. Nothing I enjoy more then discussing scriptures together with fellow Christians.

  10. Mike says:

    Suez….Importing coasts a lot of money,as well as eliminating home grown jobs.America will end up financial slaves to a communist country!

  11. Mike says:

    Saw that video the crying games New York ……..so funny I nearly fell of my chair laughing………..why aren’t Clinton and the Obomination nominated for academy awards ? …..They should be up there with Daniel day Lewis …….God bless!!……..And God bless Israel,

  12. lol Tks Mike

    I found that footage in bits and pieces and put it all together. Clinton caught red handed with the biggest smile on his face then gets serious and puts his head down then makes a sniffle face and rubs his eyes.
    In less then 5 seconds he went from smiling with the biggest smile you ever saw and then to the biggest act you ever saw.

    Its funny but its really not. This is actually what these people think of us and everything they do is just for themselves and their appearance and nothing else. Its all about them. ONLY THEY GOT CAUGHT! lol

  13. Mike says:

    Right New York! …By the time Obama gets through with America I have no doubt there will be some real tears, but not by them their narcissistic.

  14. O they will be crying. They will be on there faces when the Lord comes, faces in the dirt begging. If they are still here. They will know what it is to be humble before it is all done. Thank the Lord for that.

  15. Debra says:

    New York, You do a great job explaining the scriptures about the trib! Don’t be alarmed when people accuse you and put you down for it. They can argue all they want for their position, but when they have to face the fact they’re still here, they’ll thank you for telling them the truth. Hopefully they will not take the mark out of fear of being beheaded. My oldest daughter had a vision from the Lord when she was very young and saw many of our christian so called friends take the mark because they were not prepared and had been deceived by so called popular preachers. The Lord let her know that he was not happy about the pre=trib doctrine! In fact he was angry about it! My daughter did not know anything about the pre=trib, post- trib doctrines when she had this vision. She also saw the U. S. A. being attacked by a foreign army. She said houses were on fire and that we were helping people who were on fire! Things are happening now and will happen pretty soon that will put more fear in people that are not prepared than the rapture if they are not watching and praying!

  16. Debra says:

    Yes! She was in the fourth grade when she had this vision. There’s more to the vision but I only felt I should explain what the Lord showed her about the trib. She came running into our room about 3:00 am in the morning screaming, “THE LORD, THE LORD!” My husband asked me to find out what was going on so I went to her bedroom with her and she started telling me that the roof came off her room and she saw the hands of Jesus writing in the book of Life! Then she started to tell me about the war she saw that came to the United States and about the houses and people on fire. She saw the anti-christ also, and saw like I said, people we knew as christian friends taking the mark of the beast out of fear and a lack of preparation. She said that we were not afraid to be beheaded and neither was she! Praise God! He knows the future and the past!

    • That is very interesting Debra. What a wonderful experience to have and to be able to share with others.

      Acts 2:17
      King James Version (KJV)

      17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

      Joel 2:28
      King James Version (KJV)

      28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

  17. RubyLillian says:

    Wow Debra!! That is amazing. Thanks for sharing. I joined a group at church. We had our first meeting yesterday. The topic is Kingdom living in End Times. It was so great to sit around with a room full of people and discuss life in the End Times. The man chairing the group is a Christian conservative republican who recently lost his bid for senator. The woman who beat him is a extreme left wing progressive. Go figure. Yesterday he said” This is where the Lord wants me to be…preparing”

  18. RubyLillian says:

    NY..breaking news. The pope is resigning and making way for the next one. Remember our discussion?

  19. RubyLillian says:

    It was just on our local news. AbC

  20. 10 4 found it thank you. This brings alarming information and light and accuracy to Malachy predictions that this pope would reside for a short space or time. 100% accurate

    The name of this next pope will set off the alarms if he is named or even referred to as Peter the Roman.

    If that is the case than the antichrist is present and accounted for.

    Remember that at first he is just a man. That becomes possessed by satan a little at a time but can happen quickly. But eventually satan will have to do away with the man completely and that happens with the mortal wound. Once the mortal wound happens and he recovers through a miracle. Then he is 100% satan. Just things to keep in mind.

    The name of the new pope may or may not be peter the roman. He can choose whatever name he likes. Remember it may or may not be his name. But he will be known as peter the roman.

  21. Also keep in mind that Malachy predicted a number which was 112 and he did this with alarming details of the future which has not been seen. Absolutely amazing.

    Another thing to note is that he did not say that peter the roman would be the 113th pope but he said he would be the last pope. So there could be popes in between. But the last pope would definitely be known as Peter the roman. Other things to keep in mind.

  22. RubyLillian says:

    I find it amazing that the pope is stepping down. This has not happened in 600 years.

    • That isn’t even close to being amazing Ruby not when you read Malachy’s prophecy. How do we tell a if a prophet is true. If his predictions come true. That is in the bible.

      THAT IS AMAZING. But again take a step back and take it slowly. Do not jump to conclusions. We were warned countless times to not be deceived. So not being deceived should always be at the forefront of your thoughts on any of this stuff.

      Malachy’s prediction appears to be accurate to the letter. Time tells all things. Keep your eyes open for a deception of any kind.

  23. We shall see soon enough! This is alarming and extremely accurate information predicted by Malachy though. In great detail his predictions have come true. The mathmatical odds of these predictions are enough evidence that this information is supernatural. But again be cautious and weary of everything and keep your eyes open for deception of any kind.

    1 Peter 5:8
    King James Version (KJV)

    8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

  24. Also remember this.

    Prophecies or predictions that are issued forth can be a blessing or a curse. Why do I say this.

    Well one reason is once they are said they are then written about. That information is collected and kept as the only information to come from the person after they are gone.

    Once you have a record of any sort that in itself can lead to people causing those things to come true based on how they were written.

    Not saying this is what is happening here but remember it is one of the ways to cause deception. Remember satan is a master at deception.

    The prophecies you can count on without fail are in the bible. Again just things to keep in mind.

  25. I have done a quick study on people in line to be the new pope.

    2 people from Italy are in the running one of them has an Italian name.

    Cardinal Angelo Scola, archbishop of Milan

    Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, the archbishop of Vienna

    Just info.

  26. Mike says:

    This is BIG news in light of Malachy’s propecy,watching ABC news.They almost look happy to see him go! May be it is time for Peter the Roman ,will have to watch to see how it unfolds over the next month or two.Look at all this pomp and ceremony,and to think Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a colt of a donkey with palm branches.These Popes love excess don’t they!

  27. Remember Pope Benedict’s name was not Benedict

    He was known as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger.

    More information if you were unaware of this.

  28. What is amazing is that someone who is suppose to be a representative of God has bowed and kiss a book of a false God. Yes Benedict kissed the koran.

    Take into light the fact that his health has deteriorated quickly there after and that is pretty interesting.

  29. Mike says:

    Yes New York, When he was a Cardinal a Anglican Bishop wrote to him exclaiming they were a sister church.Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger promptly informed him they were not a sister church but the ” MOTHER CHURCH” !

  30. Mike says:

    Yes so did the health of the two Prime ministers of Israel,after they decided to give away land.One was assassinated the other still in a coma.

  31. Yep I have a prophecy and prediction listed on my blog about how we are to watch for what happens to the health of Ariel Sharon :)

  32. According to a Jewish Rabbi who lived to be over 100 he had a vision of who the messiah was and he stated who he was and what his name was and he also said that when Sharon dies what would happen. :)

  33. Mike says:

    These Popes are not men of God,there Gods of earthly tradition just like the pharisees,always exalting themselves!

  34. Mike says:

    That’s an interesting prophecy does it say anything else!

  35. The Rabbi said the messiah’s name was Yeshua or Jesus in other words.

    He then said when Ariel Sharon dies that the Lord would come.

    Ariel is on some sort of life support in coma in hospital now and has been since being in the running for prime minister of Israel and he was predicted to win. Suddenly a coma and the Lords chosen Benjamin Netanyahu who was running against him (and was predicted to lose) won. The Lord works in mysterious ways.

    Netanyahu was heavily involved in the 1967 war and now is in again at a critical time. You can put 2 and 2 together.

    • Now remember for most of his 100 years here on earth he himself never believed Jesus was the messiah!!!

      So for him a highly respected teacher and scholar of the Jewish community to say this is astounding!!!!!!!!!

      On top of that he was not only highly respected but known to make biblical type predictions of disaster events in the future that supposedly have come true.

      So while the bible did not say anything about Ariel Sharon and his death we should be cautious but it is definitely something to keep an eye on and keep in mind in general.

  36. The other thing is Ariel Sharon is in a coma. Many people live long periods of time in a coma. Or he could go at any moment as well. Just keep that in mind.

  37. Mike says:

    Some of the politicians in the White house say they will never get a two state solution while Benjamin Netanyahu in power.You can see Gods just linking this altogether every little detail!

  38. jeremiah says:

    Men of America! – Canada! – England ! Get back to work!
    Ask for Godly wisdom how to come off welfare benefits! Don’t support a system where a Chinese – slave worker- gets paid two dollars a day whilst we grow fat and lazy! Buy things made in your own countries!

  39. Mike says:

    True Jeremiah……But the prime Minister of England has just supported gay marriage I believe the Prime minister of Canada is openly gay and the president of America is a Moslem no God to be found!

  40. jeremiah says:

    Pray for our nations,that their leaders will repent of their sins and accept Jesus as their Saviour and Lord ,and desist from promoting sodomy and mohamedism.

  41. Mike says:

    I will pray for this,..This very night Jeremiah.God bless!

  42. Mike says:

    Praise the lord,all you nations;extol him,all you peoples.For great is his love towards us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures for ever..Praise the Lord..Psalm: 117

  43. suez says:

    To usc4life Just commenting on your comment to New York, I too used to be a pre-tribber!! Now I have my doubts on that. I keep a open mind, but the things that I am reading makes me think differently now. I seen something the other day that kind of threw me for a loop. You mentioned the Bride, as being the church. Yet in Rev. 21, it states in two places, the Bride is the New Jerusalem, I had seen that before, but kind of poo pooed it. This time, I seen it again more clearly.
    Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. Then: Rev 21:9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will show thee the BRIDE, the Lamb’s wife.
    Rev 21:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great CITY, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
    then it goes on to describe the City!!! Now if I am getting this wrong, someone please explain it to me, as I was always “taught” lol,,,the the Bride is the Church!! OK, so what is Rev. 21 saying??? Also how can the Rapture and the first Resurrection be pre-trib, when it says this: Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
    Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
    THIS IS THE FIRST RESURRECTION!!!! Any comments on this would be welcome. I haven’t gotten all this together yet, praying for understanding. But if any one has, please help!!! Suez

    • Suez you asked a question and your asking people with different views on scripture to answer it. I will let them answer even though their view is different then mine since you did not ask me. In order to not be confused you have to get answers from only one side first then do due diligence and search the scriptures. Then if things do not line up you proceed to see a different view and search the scriptures all while praying of course and then everything will fall into place you will be guided to what the truth is by doing it this way with prayer and searching the Lords word. Then it will be clear in the words of the bible.

      Remember there is nothing wrong with doubting. Did you know that Jesus choose Thomas and he is referred to as doubting Thomas and Thomas even though all the women and all the disciples were saying Jesus is resurrected Thomas said I am not so sure. Then Jesus appeared and STILL THOMAS HAD TO TOUCH HIM AND HIS WOUNDS.

      Did you know John the Baptist who recognized Jesus when he came into the water that day and say I am not worthy to baptize you.

      Yet John did and he saw the holy spirit that same John who was sent off to prison. While in prison asked two of his servents or followers who visited him frequently in jail to go again and ask Jesus who he was. Yes even John the Baptist had doubts even after he saw Jesus and baptized him himself.

      See a doubting person will seek and find the truth. But again let them explain then search the scriptures I have no doubt God will guide you if you pray and search the scriptures. Then if you are interested at all and you still do not understand. Let me know. :)

  44. suez says:

    Thanks New York!! I was kinda meaning you when I asked for comments…lol I don’t doubt the Word of God, but sometimes I doubt myself. I see things sometimes differently than what some preachers or other Christians see it. So, then I get confused, and say how can this be? I was taught differently!! So then I get depressed and stop reading for a few days, wondering what the Lord is trying to do with me!!! While believing in the pre-trib, one day I was reading in Corn. when a scripture literately jumped off the page at me…1Co 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. So by reading at the last trump, I took that as the trumps in Rev. then people come at me that their are different Trumps than those…such as the feast trumps…lol so me being me, what do I know, I am just a little ole nobody. But I see things like this, then I wonder why God shows me and not others, at least others that I know!!! I get a lot of grief from pre-trib friends…:) But I love them anyway. I also have had dreams, esp. back in the 1980′s. Not many now days. But one I was taken into a room where there was a stone head of Christ, (representing Christ the chief cornerstone). I was told if I denied my God, I would be spared, but if I didn’t I would be beheaded. I lifted up my arms and hands, and said, Praise the Lord, Glory to God!!! Then I woke up with a jump!! Well I knew what happened to me, didn’t I!! I also had a dream where some government military guys were chasing us. I could see a patch on their arm, but it wasn’t a USA military patch. But I didn’t recognize it. Well that was in the 80′s. I now know that patch was a NATO or new world order patch! I’ve had other dreams, but won’t go on here. I welcome any comments from you New York!!! Oh by the way, I am a King James gal also. I take a lot of crap for lack of a better word, for that stand also!!! Bless you!! In Christ, suez

  45. You will have to give me a few minutes suez it seems I am being attaked again on another thread lol Unbelievable. I speak truth from facts and evidence and people curse me for it.

    I state facts about Hal Lindsey someone backs up those facts saying Hal apologized for doing it and I am wrong for stating facts.

    Uhhhhhhhhh unreal.

    Give me a few minutes suez. Your seeing these things though because you are actually sitting down and reading the scriptures and praying about it. That is why your seeing stuff that does not line up. That is how you know God is helping you.

  46. Debra says:

    Blessed are you, NewYork when people accuse you and say all manor of ill against you for Christ’s sake! Keep up the good fight for the truth and maybe by the time the tribulation starts gearing up some people will be ready to face whatever happens by faith in Christ Jesus because you posted those scriptures! You’re a great man of God and I praise God that you are here doing his work. God be with you always and forever!

    • Well the answer I got was he (Hal) is my friends neighbor. So I am not worried about it but they should be. Especially someone who makes billions of dollars on sensationalizing prophecy and dancing around predictions. Its on them not me I warned em as a friend.
