NTEB would like you to please accept this beautifully-designed reminder of the ultimate destination of every Christian - the hope of Heaven with the One who created us....

A great way to daily remind yourself of  ‘that blessed hope’

Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 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.” 1 Corinthians 15:51,52

The absolute fervent and passionate hope of every blood-bought believer in the Lord Jesus Christ is the day when He returns to catch us away in the clouds as the bible so clearly declares. The Pretribulation Rapture is that ‘blessed hope’ that guides our daily lives in our walk with the Lord, and prepares us for the Judgment Seat of Christ.



So now, NTEB would like you to please accept this beautifully-designed reminder of the ultimate destination of every Christian – the hope of Heaven with the One who created us.

Please share this with your friends, and keep you eye on the eastern sky. He’s coming back soon.

    NTEB: Try something a little different

      Why what’s wrong with it??

  • Oh No!! Millions of born again Christians and Bible students disagree from you. The rapture is due, yes! But pre-tribulation?! Who stays behind after rapture? The ones who were not ready? The wicked? You give them a second change? Oh no. And a secret rapture? Please start your Bible study all over! Johan. South Africa

      Those who will be left out from the ‘rapture’ will have the opportunity to repent and come to Christ.

      Remember that the rapture and 2nd coming are two different things. The rapture will be for present believers of Christ who will be ‘spared’ from the tribulations.

      For the 2nd coming, Jesus will return WITH his body of believers (those who were raptured) dressed in white to defeat the Antichrist’s armies.

      • PreTrib all the Way

        Good job explaining!

        • Amen 🙂

          • Phillip

            A “good job” should come with Scriptural backing.

            It is endeavored to prove a pre-trib rapture by noting alleged differences.

            Those who are caught up “in the clouds” (1Thess 4:17) is easily seen when the Son of Man comes “in the clouds” (Matt 24:30; 26:64. Mark 13:26; 14:62.) and gathers “his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.” (Matt 24:30. Mark 13:27.)

            This occurs “after the tribulation of those days” (Matt 24:29. Mark 13:24.)

      • Brenda Murphy

        @ Verita,

        Why will we spared??
        What have we done so special as to be spared from the tribulation?

      • Ron Murphy

        When the door is shut, no one can get in, after it’s shut. The foolish virgins take the mark of another shepherd, when they come wanting in, I know you not, he tells them. Another chance? I don’t think so. That is a lie, so people can party hardy and think they can get saved when the saints are gone. Many will do this in error and will miss the thief that warned them, he is coming! This blood will be on you hands for leading them astray, Mr. Grider, all the Way, and Verita, especially you. Just keep teaching your lies, it is an abomination. And you just might knock yourselves out of heaven.

  • Yes, H e is coming back soon, but not before we face many trials in the troubles as Jesus told us back when.

  • PreTrib all the Way

    After MANY years of study…..I FULLY believe in the pre tribulation rapture. NTEB is a great web site, very informative and they are offering free wallpaper to those who believe and want it…. it is a choice, you do not have to take it but neither to you have to post your unbelief, they didnt ask for that! I dont know why anyone would want to believe that God sends judgment to His children when He clearly states in His word that Judgement is for the ungodly and unbelieving. That is what the Tribulation is for! And to draw the Jewish people to the one true savior….Jesus Christ…. You cannot make anyone believe if they dont want to.. but like I aways say….. If you want to believe you will be here thru the tribulation, you can stay here if you like…But I am leaving before the Tribulation starts…and when all Hell breaks loose I will be sitting at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb! I know I will be enjoying myself.. will you????

    • CrissCross

      No problem in believing, but one needs to be 360 degree sure 😉
      (1) (

      • Yes, when someone does not know how to “rightly divide” their King James Bible – 2 Timothy 2:15 – then things become murky and up for grabs. But when you follow Paul’s command and “rightly divide”, you see the Pretrib Rapture immediately.

        • Tracy

          The confusion begins when some believe that we, Christians, have got to prove our love for Christ by living through the tribulation, or endure to the end, or be martyred for Christ to be able to reign with Him during the 1,000 year reign. That’s what I’ve observed from post-trib believers. Regardless, the rapture will take place whenever the clouds part and God sends Jesus to “rapture us up.” Our Blessed Hope is truly an event to yearn-for. Amen!!

      • Sunny

        360 degree LOGICALLY sure 😉 (downloadable 280 pages ebook/pdf = $0.00) is a Good one!

  • Gary Hulsey

    Wonderful wallpaper if only remained clear and crisp at full screen. Thank you for making it available. Would you consider making a larger version available?

  • Sunny

    Kooool 😉
    Few (stupid) suggestions…The font-size of the message should have been a bit smaller and the bottom of the image could have been something more prominent & different (like collage of the Earth OR may be a faded landscape OR something similar).

    • CrissCross

      Yes 🙂
      The content should have been a bit more! The color is OK though.

  • Here We Go Again!
    You can believe however you want concerning when Jesus takes his bride but there is nothing in God’s word that supports anything other than a pre-tribulation rapture. Nobody, including Jesus, would stand back and allow his bride (the true church as a whole) to be harmed or molested by anything or anyone. He would remove her out of harm’s way (rapture), then go to task. Just stand back and watch (pun entended).

  • When God created he spoke everything into existance.
    When God speaks “COME UP HITHER” we’re outa’ here!
    It’s that simple!
    Will His voice sound like the blast of a trumpet?
    I wonder if we (the church) will even have time to
    comprehend it being that it will happen so quickly.

    Tim LaHaye’s Masonic Connections

    Left Behind: LaHaye’s Masonic Connections

    I have written in the past about the significance of the Left Behind movie’s production date and release dates running simultaneously with the top four Satanic holidays. I have since then calculated the odds of this happening by chance. I will give a quick review first.

    There are 8 primary holidays in witchcraft and Satanism. In the Illuminati they are known as the 8 nights of human sacrifice for obvious reasons. There are four major and four minor ones:

    1) Candlemas or Imbolg — Feb. 1,2- major
    2) Ostara- March 21 (Spring Equinox) – minor
    3) Beltane or Roodmas – May 1 (founding day for the Illuminati in 1776)- major
    4) Litha– June 21 (summer solstice) – minor
    5) Lughnasadh or Lammas- August 1 – major
    6) Mabon- September 21 (autumnal equinox) – minor
    7) Samhain or Hallowe’en- October 29-31 – major
    8) Yule- December 21 (Winter solstice) – minor

    Luciferians seek Satanic blessings by not only performing their jobs in their sacred locations where they believe there are vortexes of occultic power (see but also seek Satanic blessings by initiating their projects on their Satanic holy days.

    – On May 1, 2000, Beltane (major Satanic holiday) they began production on the movie ‘Left Behind’.

    – 13 weeks later on August 1, Lughnasadh (major Satanic holiday) they released the ‘making of Left Behind’ for sale.

    – 13 weeks later on October 31, Samhain (major Satanic holiday) they released the ‘Left Behind’ movie for sale.

    – 13 weeks from that date on Feb.2, 2001 Candlemas (major Satanic holiday) they released ‘Left Behind’ into the theaters across the country.

    (see these dates on

    The odds that Peter LaLonde hit those four OCCULTIC days by chance with his production and release dates is 1 in 17,458,601,160.

    Or one in seventeen billion, four hundred fifty-eight million, six hundred and one thousand, one hundred sixty.

    If you believe this is a coincidence then you probably believe it was a coincidence that Jesus died on Passover, was resurrected during Feast of Firstfruits and that the Holy Spirit fell and the church was born on the Feast of Pentecost.

    But how could these guys be seeking Satanic blessings? After all, isn’t the movie a great witnessing tool?

    ONLY IF YOUR GOSPEL MESSAGE IS CHANGED to being raptured to avoid the hard times which are coming to this earth!!!

    [That’s what masons do – CHANGE the message of the Bible.]

    There (in movie) was no true message of the cross, the atoning blood of Christ, repenting and believing on the name of Jesus for salvation. No scripture was used for this purpose, no sinner’s prayer. An unsaved person watching that movie has no idea of the true meaning of salvation. And if he is converted by someone, due to the messages in the movie or book series, he will walk away from this faith when he realizes the tribulation has started and that he was lied to.

    Is this another coincidence below?

    [ pic of Tim LaHaye’s book ‘Power Of The Cross’ with the very same Cross and Crown symbol of the Jehovah’s Witness’ on the cover ]

    The picture on the left is the cover of the recent book (1999) by Tim LaHaye called The Power of the Cross. The one on the right is a centuries old MASONIC symbol and can be seen on an official site of the Knights Templar at

    Some might mistake it for a Christian symbol, but Masonic author Ray Denslow reveals its true meaning:

    “The Cross and Crown may be said to be confined almost exclusively to the historical degrees in Masonry as exemplified in the various orders of knighthood of York and Scottish rites. In Gaul we find the cross to have been a SOLAR SYMBOL when it had equal arms and angles; to the Phoenicians it was an instrument of SACRIFICE to their God, Baal; and to the Egyptians, the crux ansata was his symbol of eternal life.”

    (Ray V. Denslow, Masonic Portraits, Transactions of ths Missouri Lodge of Research, vol. #29, p.7—emphasis in the original)

    Masonic authority Albert Pike also wrote of the meaning of the above symbol in his book Morals and Dogma, explaining that it has a SEXUAL connotation to it as well.
    (Why is this symbol on a ‘Christian’ book cover).

    Was it also a coincidence that LaHaye and his associates set up their Pretrib Research Center in a place that’s considered a vortex of OCCULTIC POWER in Washington D.C. They were located on L’Enfant Promenade, a street named after the Mason Pierre Charles L’Enfant who designed the city in Masonic and Occultic symbols.

    ( )

    From there, coincidently, they moved their research center to the Dallas area, another city that is sacred to freemasonry because of its proximity to the 33rd degree of latitude.

    Christians aren’t supposed to believe in coincidences.

    Tim and Beverly LaHaye are associated with Sun Myung Moon, whose teachings are permeated with phallic themes. See: The Council on National Policy & Sun Myung Moon.

    Gratefully in Jesus Christ alone,
    Name witheld

    Now the truth.

    John 6:40 …’And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the LAST DAY.’

    John 11:24 …’Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the LAST DAY.’

    John 12:48 …’He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the LASAT DAY.’

    Eternal life is given on the LAST DAY. The resurrection happens on the LAST DAY. Judgment is given on the LAST DAY.

    Notice also what Jesus says in Matthew 28:20 …”lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” … Now why would Jesus reassure us that He would be with us until the END OF THE WORLD, if we were to be raptured away BEFORE the end of the world? Doesn’t make sense does it? Friend, the rapture teaching is a false one invented by Satan to cause God’s people to be UNPREPARED for the time of trouble ahead, that we WILL go through.

    What happens at the end of the world?

    For Jesus to say “end of the world”, there must be some destructive event to take place right? So what event is coming that would be an “end of the world” event? THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST JESUS! Look at the following Bible verses describing the second coming and you will see that THIS is the event that will “end this world” as we know it.

    Revelation 1:7 …’Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.’

    2 Peter 3:10 …’But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.’

    2 Thessalonians 1:7-8 …’And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.’

    Psalm 50:3-4 … ‘Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him. He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.’

    Isaiah 34:8-10 …’For it is the day of the LORD’s vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion. And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch. It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.’

    Sounds like an end of the world event doesn’t it? The destroying force of the second coming of Christ Jesus, as shown in the Bible verses above, will cause the earth to be “laid waste” as described in Isaiah above. Which means that the world will NOT continue on as we know it now, which the rapture theory proclaims. Instead, the wicked will be destroyed and the earth will be laid waste. And it is AT THIS TIME that the saints are taken to heaven, not before.

    Who is really ‘Left Behind’?

    Matthew 24:37-42 …’But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.’

    This is such a misunderstood passage of scripture today. Take a look at the context of the above Bible verses. Do you see that Jesus is telling us that His second coming will be like what happened in Noah’s day? And what happened in the days of Noah? The above verse tells us. The flood DESTROYED the earth, taking away the wicked and LEAVING BEHIND GOD’s PEOPLE (Noah’s family).

    Who was “taken away” and who was “left behind” in Noah’s day?

    Take a look at the above verses again. It was the wicked who were TAKEN and Noah was LEFT BEHIND! And this is what Christ is pointing us to. He is saying that the day is coming when the earth will be destroyed again and the wicked will be TAKEN and the saints will be LEFT BEHIND.

    Jesus is pointing to the “END OF THE WORLD”. Just like it was the “end of the world” in Noah’s day when the flood came.

    And what did we already confirm would happen during the harvest at the end? — ‘and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together FIRST the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.’ (Matthew 13) … The wicked are “taken” first and the saints are left behind to then be “gathered into My barn” (taken to heaven).

    The whole context of Matthew 24 is a warning for us to “watch and be ready” so that the “sudden destruction” that is to come upon the world (1 Thess. 5:3) will not TAKE US by surprise. Just like what happened in Noah’s day. Who were taken? The wicked. Who were left behind? Noah and his family!

    Read Luke 17:36-37. You will notice that the disciples ask WHERE has the one taken gone? And Jesus responds by saying, “Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.” — Now in the original language, the word Eagle can also mean Vulture. And where do Vultures gather? Where there is a dead body! And look at what Job says about the Eagle:

    Job 39:27-30 …’Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high? She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place. From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off. Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.’

    So the one taken is the wicked who will be killed.

    What does it mean when the Bible says we will be “caught up” to meet the Lord in the air? Exactly as it says! You see, those who hold to the rapture theory try to get something out of this verse that just isn’t there! The truth is, when Christ Jesus returns at the second coming, the wicked will be destroyed, the dead saints will be resurrected and the saints who are still alive will be “caught up” to meet Jesus in the air. And then we will be taken to heaven to start the 1000 year millennium.

    And why do we “meet the Lord in the air”? Because Jesus is NOT going to set foot upon the earth during the second coming. And the second phase of His return with the saints will be at the END of the 1000 year millennium. This is another misunderstanding that the rapture theory causes.

    ALL masonic preachers push the pre-trib rapture.

      Pre-tribulation Rapture Is A Lie

      It is biblical truth: There is no pre-tribulation rapture.

      Thousands believe in the “secret rapture of the church” (referred to as the “Pre-Trib Rapture”) prior to the tribulation period. Believers don’t want to think about suffering through a tribulation period and Satan definitely doesn’t want Believers to store food and make preparations to survive through the tribulation period.

      Pre-tribulation rapture lie is an “American doctrine” that has been promoted by False Teachers.

      Proverbs 10:30- “The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.”

      The Rapture of the Wicked

      The secret rapture of believers before the tribulation is also attributed to the best-sellers, “The Late, Great Planet Earth,” and the “Left Behind” series.

      No Pre Tribulation Rapture – The PRE TRIB RAP TRAP!:

      The pre-trib rapture concept was manufactured in the 1800’s in an 18 year old Plymouth Brethren girl’s dream. She told her Pastor, John Darby, about the dream. He then relayed the dream to C. I. Scofield – who bought into the dream as revealed truth. Scofield placed this pre-tribulation rapture myth as a footnote in his popular Bible, which began the spread of the lie.

      Cyrus Scofield, a corrupt, crooked lawyer funded by Zionist Jews from New York City in the late 19th century brought these heresies in to the Church. Scofield’s heresies promoted a Jewish kingdom and an earthly Zionist New World Order to be ruled over by a god-like Jewish race, without any Christian gentiles around to mess things up. These heresies soon became popular amongst some denominations, especially among the Southern Baptists and their Masonic Lodge membership.

      Millions of “evangelical” and “fundamentalist” Christians actually believe that in helping Satan and the Beast set up their bloody kingdom on earth, they are, in reality, serving God.

      Their disregard for scriptural integrity brings to the forefront our Lord’s dire warning that as the end of time draws near, the religious of this world will kill true Christians and think they are doing God’s service (John 16:2).

      In Matthew 24:29-31, the rapture (“gathering together”) is placed in the same time frame as the second coming of Jesus Christ. And all of this is “after the tribulation” (verse 29).

      Pre-tribulation believer’s ignore this clear passage.

      All other passages in Scripture relating to the “gathering together unto Him” must refer back to the literal time line provided by Jesus in Matthew 24.

      Christ’s return coincides with the end of the tribulation.

      Revelation 1:7 states “he cometh with clouds”, which is linked to “all the tribes of the earth mourn” in Matthew 24:3, and the clouds are mentioned in the scripture used by false teachers who use 1 Thessalonians 4:17, when we are “caught up together with them in the clouds.”

      Isaiah 40:10 says: “The Lord God will come (and) his reward is with him”. In Isaiah 62:12, we find that reward is for “the redeemed of the Lord” who receive their reward when he comes at the 7th trumpet, when “thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints.” Christ comes at the very end of the days.

      The last day, when Jesus raises the dead (he says it 4 times in John 6 verses 39, 40, 44, & 54) has to coincide with the time when “the dead in Christ shall rise” (I Thessalonians 4:16) since there is only one resurrection of the just (Luke 14:14).

      The last day is referenced by Mary’s sister Martha, as she fretted over the death of her brother Lazarus. Jesus told her that Lazarus would live again, and she said “I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day” (John 11:24). Obviously, Christ did not correct her, by stating that Lazarus would rise with the other dead at “Pre-Tribulation” Rapture, 7 years before the last day.

      We cannot use a passage in the Book of Revelation or any other symbolically-based section of the Bible by which to draw a pre-tribulation rapture doctrine.

      We CANNOT not take the words of the Apostle Paul, insert them and use them out of context to create a pre-tribulation string of Scripture references to justify both this belief and this cult following.

      Matthew 24- MUST be used as the benchmark for all other “gathering together” themes of Scripture.

      Holding to a pre-tribulation rapture drastically weakens believers world wide. This lie is a Spiritual Stronghold. Irrefutable verses are irrationally rejected by those who claim to love the Truth of God’s Word. It is a cult following and it is deception that is a supernaturally manifested spiritual stronghold.

      Believers should be preparing for spiritual battle against the most evil forces arrayed by hell.

      Instead, Believers are living with false hope that they will be raptured before the tribulation.

      This is all orchestrated by the demonic powers to eventuate in a limp army of believers and assurance that through complacency, there will be minimal resistance to the powers of darkness.

      Much tribulation is ahead for the righteous remnant. Those who are not in the Lord will – fall away, as predicted in the Bible. They will be too numerous. Those who are carrying the cross daily, nothing will be able to thwart their zeal for Jesus Christ.

      The remnant is being strengthened by the Holy Spirit. He is gathering His own together in the power of the resurrection and the might of the Word revealed in the King James Bible. The numbers are few; but their passion cannot be subdued.

      Prepare NOW for the difficulties coming. These difficulties are trials permitted by the coming Christ.

      Mark 13:24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,

      Mark 13:25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.

      Mark 13:26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory

      Just like “As in the days of Noah”, be like Noah – PREPARE!

  • Brenda Murphy

    People will be so disappointed when they see that they will have to go thru the tribulation.
    Many will fall away because they put their trust in the false hope that satan has been spreading, for quite some time now.

    Just like Noah and the ark, when the flood came and took them all away, they were not prepared, not in the ark, with their families and brethren.
    They were eating and drinking and giving in marriage……..this doesn’t sound like the wrath of God to me, now does it?

    Sounds like the world was doing business as usual, and the others were preparing. 🙂
