Our Cyber Monday Sale Is Packed With King James Bibles And Commentaries Especially Geared Towards Students And Teachers Of The Word Of God

Published

on

Cyber Monday Welcome to the NTEB Cyber Monday Sale where we have put on sale some of our most popular and most requested items. This sale will start at Midnight Sunday and will remain in effect until end of day on Monday at Midnight.
SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

On this year’s Cyber Monday Sale, we are featuring the commentaries and study Bible written by Dr. Peter S. Ruckman

The Lord told us to raise up a Bible bookstore for the express purpose of being a gospel witness to the community here in Saint Augustine, and to equip the saints with the reading material they need to understand the word of God, and then go out into the world preaching and teaching it. We are a ministry first, and a business second. Our Cyber Monday sale is all about business, the Father’s business.

“And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.” Acts 8:30,31 (KJB)

Peter Ruckman was a great Bible teacher, one of the very best, and for 64 years he faithfully laboured in the Lord’s field teaching people Bible doctrine and the importance of the supremacy of the King James Bible. He also famously said “don’t take my word for it, look it up and CHECK ME OUT!”. So I did. For over 25 years now, I’ve been comparing his teachings to the King James Bible, and just about nine and a half times out of ten he’s ‘right on the money’. “What a thing, man, what a thing!”

Our Cyber Monday Sale happily features the time-tested works of Dr. Peter Ruckman, including a commentary bundle where you will save nearly $150.00 by buying all his commentaries in one shot! Let me assure you that there is no shortcut to understanding God’s written word, it’s 2 Timothy 2:15 all the way. That’s why it is so very important that your foundation of study materials honors the King James Bible, and not the perverted legion of the modern versions which not only contradict each other but themselves as well. We hope you will take advantage of this sale to stock your library with commentaries and study materials to further your understanding of God’s word. We also are putting the beautiful calfskin and lambskin Ruckman Reference Bibles on sale as well. They make great gifts, and with every Bible you buy, we’ll give you a free Christian Heroes book! We are also including some works from Larkin, Riplinger and Grady because of their connection to the ministry of Dr. Ruckman. The Bible says “Where the word of a king is, there is power”, do you have the word of a king? Come and get it this Monday.

Sale starts at 12:01 AM on Monday and continues for 24 hours, don’t miss it!

NTEB RADIO BIBLE STUDY: We Are All Born As Tripartite Beings Created With A Body, A Soul And A Spirit, But Your First Birth Is No Good

Published

on

nteb-rightly-dividing-king-james-bible-study-on-body-soul-spirit
SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

You were created as an eternal soul, inside a temporal body, with a spirit from God that gives you life, but your ‘first birth’ is no good. Ye must be born again.

From the moment you were conceived, you have existed as a soul, inside a body, with a spirit from God that gives you life and breath. Adam was the first to be created in 3 parts, and for a short time, he was in the image of God. So much so they could walk together in the cool of the evening and enjoy fellowship. That image was taken away from him after The Fall, and from that point on he began to beget children in his own fallen image. You and I were born in the image of Adam, and then born again back into the image of God through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. But there is more to being born again than you might think, and your King James Bible is not shy in telling you about it.

In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:” Colossians 2:11 (KJB)

On this episode of Rightly Dividing, we are made in 3 parts, saved or lost, we are all an individual soul, contained in our own body, each with a spirit that gives us life. After Adam and Eve, there have been no exceptions to this rule in the last 6,000 years of human history. On this episode of Rightly Dividing, we look at the spiritual operation that takes place when we become born again, and we look at what happens to the body, soul and spirit of those who don’t. Saved or lost, everyone lives forever in some form, and the incredible part is that you get to decide what form that will be. Saved souls will be transformed and given a body like unto His glorious body, and the unsaved will degenerate into a hideous, but eternal, other body you need to know about. If you have a King James Bible, you have the wildest Book ever written!

  • I  thanked God for sending to your website in 2015 , I  live in the South of France near Nice and let me tell you here there isn’t any Bible Believing church at all, the sad reality of France is that is full of freemasons and Muslims. You came to me at the time I  was going to take my own life because of my job. You’re anointed person and I pray for you, family  and  ministry because you’re a blessing to all of us. May God bless you always. I know I’ll meet you in heaven one day. Lots of Love from your sister in Christ, Paula.
  • “Hi Geoffrey and staff, Today is my one year anniversary that I got saved on your podcast!  I am now a KJB only, I threw away my other two versions I had.  I was shocked to learn of the differences and how the new versions twist the words of God, and dilute the message at best. Thank you for the fabulous bible  education and fire for the Lord.  I donate on your website throughout the year.  Thanks for all that you do.” Donna
  • “I have been reading on NTEB for about 5 years and listening as I can to your services.  If I could list the encouragement, the doctrines, the awareness of what is coming (our blessed hope) but also the last days culture in which I live that you have taught me, this email wouldn’t fit in this letter. Because of you, I am a stronger more equipped soldier for Jesus Christ. Thank you sir for you, your ministry in my life. Faithful to the end because He lives in me.” Ruthie Dennis
  • “My name is Carl N from Mumbai, India. My wife Andrea and I have been ardent listeners of your Bible Study and news update podcasts from the very start of the lockdown last year. In fact we make it a point to share these links with our family and friends… many times getting into trouble, as the truth upsets people. We cannot even begin to tell you how this has changed our lives and walk with the Lord. Thank you so much for what you’ve been doing for the Kingdom!! We’ve even switched Bible translations to the KJV. For the last month or so, you’ve been speaking about making end times Bible study materials available. This got us really excited, as we’re eager to use these for our weekly house church group.” Carl N – Mumbai, India
  • “I listen to your podcasts often. Very enlightening and I’ve learned a lot. I’m Catholic and followed the Holy Bible throughout my life however, since listening to your podcasts, I’ve learned much more. I recently sent NTEB a small donation. I’d like to do so again in the future. I’ve also signed up for NTEB chatroom. Anyways, I have a downloaded version of KJB on my computer and I follow your Bible Study with my pdf version KJB. You have offered to send out printed version of KJB if requested. If not too much trouble, when you or your staff get the opportunity please send me a copy.” Kevin W – Frankfurt, Germany
  • Just wanted to let you know that your ministry is producing fruit. After listening to the studies and church on NTEB, I was motivated to write witness letters along with NTEB gospel tracks to friends from my hometown who I know are not saved. I sent two of the letters to former Catholic priests of mine….I attached the response from him urging me to read the book “Prove It!.” My wife and I have been placing your gospel tracks in different places we visit. This coming Sunday, I am hosting my first Bible study in my house with some people in our neighborhood. Tomorrow evening I have been given a chance to teach the lesson to our youth church group (our church is very Laodicean), and I am going to talk to the youth on end times. Thank you so much for your ministry and encouraging us to get something done for Jesus while we still can! Thomas B 
  • “The sole purpose of this email to you is to let you know how much we have been blessed by your amazing ministry/website. ‘We’ is my wife and I, in our early forties, 3 kids, professing, churchgoing, bible believing Christians in The Netherlands.  Since two months, I listen to your bible studies on Sunday evening, and since this week also to your prophecy podcast. I listen to them in the archives, because of the 6 hour time difference. The shofar and the blessing at 0:30 into the study never fails to make tears in my eyes. We are praying for you, we are praying for your voice, that it lasts in these incredible busy times for you. Listening to your podcasts, you seem to do it effortlessly, talking, scanning the chatbox for questions, diving into the texts, from Genesis to Revelation and everything in between, I love it when you realize after 1:30h into the study, actually a lot more subjects need to be addressed! Thank you for all your work and effort, you are doing an amazing job. Although it all seems effortlessly, I know it is not…Our faith is strengthened by your work and we are able to testify in a better way to the people around us!” Wouter D. van der Wiel – Netherlands
  • “Wanted to send you encouragement and thank you for all you are doing!! I’ve been reading from this website for about 5 years and I’ve been on this at least 10 times a day. It’s the most honest prophecy website in history. And you have ministered to me greatly. This lockdown has been amazing as God gets us unto himself and smooths out the paths for us. I was reading devotional from Kenneth Copeland and during that time you had really hit That ministries hard. I was not Word Faith but I was feeding off his teaching. During this time I have removed Kenneth Copeland I wanted to thank you for your exposure of his ministry. Holy Spirit is truly the leader of all truths. The bible study on Bill Gates was tremendous. And I had the same check in my spirit as you did. He’s the guy that gonna lead this one world revolution Amazing times we live in. I’m super excited and living in total victory and peace. Once again thank you for the time you put in your reward in heaven will truly be great. Looking forward to this coming week. My prayer tonight is this …Father send Your Son!! DG
  • Thank you oh so much for sound teaching. I am so thankful and blessed for clicking on your channel. I have been on your Facebook page since 2011 and never subscribed to you-tube channel until today. I loved the live recording of singing, what a delight to hear the joy of the Lord in the voices of the congregation. So wonderful to hear the part about Luke 12:36, that has made my eyebrows furrow when I read and therefore I have always steadfast to not leaning on my own understanding. May God continue to bless you, your family friends and loved ones. All Glory be to Jesus, my Saviour Redeemer and King, Amen.” Susan Anderson
  • Loved this teaching! Presented in a clear contextual manner that was easy to follow along. You connected the dots for me that had previously brought so much confusion, namely the 4th seal covenant, the 5th seal tribulation saints, and the 6th seal 2nd Coming of Christ AFTER the wedding of the Body/Bride of Christ IN HEAVEN. Wow, after 41 years since my being born again by the Holy Spirit in to the Body of Christ, I finally have the answers to end the confusion. What joy and peace has flooded my heart! Thank you for this encouraging teaching of the Word.” SB
  • “I am from Sri Lanka and listen to the radio Bible study every week.” Nihal Perera

Nothing thrills my soul like teaching the word of God, it is what the Lord called me to do 29 years ago, and Now The End Begins is the vehicle in which I am able to do it. How exciting it is to be able to teach the Bible to tens of thousands of people per year. Like I told you with the first post of 2020, I have dedicated myself now full-time to NTEB, and it is only through your generous support that such a thing is possible.

  • “I met you at the car dealership earlier this year. We spoke briefly, then you handed me a card and told me to check out the website. You left. A few minutes later, you returned to tell me not to forget to look up the website. I told you…” I already did. I already subscribed.” In that short time we spoke, I experienced from you…a total stranger…peace, joy, kindness, gentleness, compassion, and love.

  • “I’m a KJB believer. We’re so close to being “caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord. I have many lost family who don’t want the truth, including my husband & son. I’ve been banned from seeing my grandsons since I comforted the 4 1/2 year old with sharing Jesus loving the little children & telling him about the one who created him last he stayed overnight March 3rd. He was so excited to hear about Jesus! His dad (my son) was angry that I told him & wants me to apologize. I never will do so. If my own family won’t hear, I know there’s others searching for the truth. My heart grieves for all the lost who will spend eternity in hell if they reject the Lord Jesus Christ, the expectant hope of the world. He is not willing that any should perish. God bless your ministry, Geoffrey! (I continue to pass out your tracts & you’re on my prayer list!)” LouAnn Benham

With $500 Million In Revenue, End Times Villain Klaus Schwab Choses To Step Back From Executive Leadership Of The Dystopian World Economic Forum

Published

on

wef-world-economic-forum-found-klaus-schwab-to-step-down-retire-from-executive-post
SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

World Economic Forum founder and executive chairman Klaus Schwab will be stepping back from his role running the global gathering since he founded it in 1971.

There is perhaps no name more associated with these crazy times we live in than that of Klaus Schwab. With his thick German accent that always reminds you of a Nazi leader addressing the troops, Klaus Schwab has had a seemingly endless bag of tricks he has threatened us with for a great many years now. His trademark catch phrase of ‘you’ll own nothing and like it’ rolls off the tongue like a dusting of cricket flour as we watch 15-Minute Cities being constructed all around us. Is he really retiring? No, he is not, he’s just changing seats as the movie continues to play out.

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” John 8:44 (KJB)

The big question is who will take his place? We know that his daughter, Natalie Schwab, is fully onboard with the rising dystopia, and has threatened climate lockdowns many times. George Soros is being succeeded by his son Alex Soros, and we fully expect the evil machinations to continue unabated. Whoever replaces Klaus Schwab, you can rest assured his directives will be carried out. Whether you realize it or not, but our world is controlled by a very small handful of people who have the majority of the money, and they’ll continue working for their father right up to the end. It is, after all, a family business.

World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab steps back, not down

FROM SEMAFOR: Schwab announced his intentions in an email to staff on Tuesday that was shared with Semafor by a person connected to the organization. He will be stepping down as executive chairman and transitioning to a role as non-executive chairman, he said, adding the change in his role is pending approval by the Swiss government.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the Forum said that the organization is “transforming from a convening platform to the leading global institution for public-private cooperation.” The Forum’s governance structure is set to change as a result of that evolution, the spokesperson said, and Schwab “will transition from Executive Chairman to Chairman of the Board of Trustees” by January 2025. Schwab has not named his successor, but said that over the last year, the group’s executive board, “under the leadership of President Børge Brende, has taken full executive responsibility.” Brende is a former Norwegian conservative leader.

Klaus Schwab, 86, is synonymous with the organization that he has managed for more than 50 years.

Initially known as the European Management Forum, early iterations of the event drew far fewer attendees to Davos than the thousands that now ascend to the Swiss mountain town. Now, the annual WEF meeting in Davos attracts dozens of high-ranking world leaders and CEOs each year, with more than 50 heads of state attending in 2024, according to the organization.

The Forum operates much like a family business, with Schwab’s children appointed to high-ranking positions and his wife Hilde heading the organization’s foundation and awards ceremonies in Davos.

In recent years, the Forum has shifted its focus towards the center, and away from liberal politics, Semafor previously reported. Succession at the WEF has been the subject of fevered speculation, and a Politico article floating possible names roiled the gathering in 2023. The Forum has also been navigating a difficult political landscape, and has steered back toward the center in recent years after embracing progressive directions in culture and finance.

The WEF, though a nonprofit, is a remarkable business: The organization brought in nearly $500 million in revenue in the year ending March 2023, and had a neat 200 million Swiss francs sitting in cash, Semafor reported last year. READ MORE

MARK OF THE BEAST: Get Ready To ‘Pay With Your Face’ As Biometric Payment Options Forecast To Be A $3 Trillion Dollar Business By 2025

Published

on

biometric-payment-options-2025-mark-of-the-beast-666-mastercard-jp-morgan
SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

Biometric payment options will soon be everywhere as this lost world moves closer and closer to the 666 Mark of the Beast System.

The book of Revelation shows you from 2,000 years ago that the day would come where people would pay for things using a biometric payment system. The apostle John shows us an embedded smart device located in the back of the right hand, or in the forehead, giving the using the ability to buy and sell in the global market. In fact, computer technology is all through your King James Bible, you just didn’t see it for what it truly is. That dusty, old, archaic Book is way ahead of tomorrow’s headlines, just check out our Mark of the Beast System to see what I mean.

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16,17 (KJB)

Look at the main graphic at the top of this article, and in those 5 circles, 5 being the number for death in the Bible, you see the 5 main biometric payment options currently available. You can use fingerprints, facial scan, iris scan, the veins of your palm, and voice recognition. All this is just the ‘dry run’ for the payment system they will implant into the back of your right hand and your forehead. Remember the biometric payment device that Microsoft made, the one with patent number 2020-060606? Christian, the future is here, and it’s exactly as your King James Bible says it will be. The only question is, what are you going to do about it?

JPMorgan and Mastercard fully behind biometric payment options

FROM CNBC: Automated fast food restaurant CaliExpress by Flippy, in Pasadena, Calif., opened in January to considerable hype due to its robot burger makers, but the restaurant launched with another, less heralded innovation: the ability to pay for your meal with your face. CaliExpress uses a payment system from facial ID tech company PopID. To activate it, users register with a selfie. Then they can opt to be recognized and then PopID’s facial verification confirms the transaction.

It’s not the only fast-food chain to employ the technology. In January, Steak ’N Shake, a fast-casual restaurant in the Midwest, started installing facial recognition kiosks in its 300 locations for patron check-in. The chain says that using PopID takes two to three seconds compared with a check-in with a QR code or mobile app, which can take up to 20 seconds.

Biometric payment options are becoming more common. Amazon introduced pay-by-palm technology in 2020, and while its cashier-less store experiment has faltered, it installed the tech in 500 of its Whole Foods stores last year. Mastercard, which is working with PopID,  launched a pilot for face-based payments in Brazil back in 2022, and it was deemed a success — 76% of pilot participants said they would recommend the technology to a friend. Late last year, Mastercard said it was teaming with NEC to bring its Biometric Checkout Program to the Asia-Pacific region.

“Our focus on biometrics as a secure way to verify identity, replacing the password with the person, is at the heart of our efforts in this area,” said Dennis Gamiello, executive vice president of identity products and innovation at Mastercard.

He added that based on positive feedback from the pilot and its research, the checkout technology will come to more new markets later this year.

As stores implement biometric technology for a variety of purposes, from payments to broader anti-theft systems, consumer blowback, and lawsuits, are rising. In March, an Illinois woman sued retailer Target for allegedly illegally collecting and storing her and other customers’ biometric data via facial recognition technology without their consent. Amazon and T-Mobile are also facing legal actions related to biometric technology.

In other countries, most notably China, biometric payment systems are comparatively mature, from visitors to McDonald’s in China being able to use facial recognition technology to pay for their orders, to systems offered by AliPay, which launched biometric payment as far back as 2015 and began testing the technology at KFC locations in China in 2018. A deal that PopID recently signed with JPMorgan is a sign of things to come in the U.S., said John Miller, PopID CEO, and what he thinks will be a “breakthrough” year for pay-by-face technology.
