    Hello everybody, I’ve lurked on RitaNow for many years now, and have read many of your posts over the years, and I kind of feel like I know some of you. I am so glad a site such as this exists, where people can come and share information and speculation of how near the Rapture and second coming of Jesus might be.
    It really helped keep me strong in the faith, and close to God by reading what you’ve all had to say, that the Rapture might occur any day, any moment. Stepping stones of faith, really, from one possible date for the Rapture, to the next. And I want to say Thank You, for all your posts, I really appreciate them.

    Anyway, I felt it was finally time to join RitaNow. Being that I am a new poster I don’t quite understand everything yet, as far as all the buttons to click on, and what they do, and I don’t know how to copy, cut and paste what a person says, when your replying to their post, so you can show them what they’ve said. I’ve never learned how to copy, cut and paste since I’ve been on a computer, I wish I knew how.

    So, at first I may make some mistakes as far as what I click on, but bear with me, as I am just learning, and experimenting. :scratch:

    Welcome! :Hi: Glad to have you with us :good: I look forward to reading your posts and comments. It’s always nice to “meet” new people.

    In order to paste all or some of someone else’s commentary, just highlight the text you want to copy from their post and use the “quote” function. To highlight, just left-click on your mouse and drag it over the text. You’ll find “quote” on the same line as the date and time of their post, which is right above their picture. Hope that helps. :rose:

    Romans1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

    Very good teachings, and I learn allot from all here.
    So again, Welcome & glad your here!

    Welcome to Rita Now Terry!

    There is a larger “Quote” button on the bottom right of every post that is in green, if you prefer that one. So after you highlight what portion of a members post you would like to refer to, then just hit that green Quote and it will automatically take you to a new write box with their quote and where you can add your thoughts.

    Also, we do have some basic rules to be familiar with and you will find those on the main page. Just click on “HOME” at the top of the page. The dropdown includes Rules for Posting. Click on that and when done just return to the main page.

    I Am the Lord! Besides Me there is no Savior. For there is no other name under Heaven given among men by which we must be saved. 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. If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved!...For in him we live, and move, and have our being!

    Greetings Terry,

    I hope you enjoy your “offical” stay with us and that it’s not too long…. in a good way of course!

    Hopefully we will all be travelling to our proper Home soon!

    Psalm 18:2
    The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

    Hello, Terry.
    You are welcome here. How long have you been lurking?
    There really are some very decent Christians here. And some people like me.
    I really expected the Rapture to have occurred by the end of 2015. I have become more disappointed with each passing month. I have no clue when the Rapture might occur. I hang around here hoping that someone will.
    Let’s hope it is soon.

    Welcome aboard, Terry! Always good to see a new poster in the family.

    Let me pass along a practical tip to help you get started. For the longest time when I wanted to post a link to a video within one of my posts, I had to just insert a regular underlined hyperlink because I could not figure out how to make the video itself appear within the post (you know, where you see a small screen embedded in the post and you can just click on the arrow to launch the video).

    So, in case you want to do that some time soon, here are the steps:
    1) Use you web browser to first pull up the video you want to include in your post.
    2) Once the video is displayed in your web browser, copy the URL address by highlighting it in the address bar of the browser, right-clicking on it, and then left-clicking on Copy (at least that’s how it works on my computer, which is pretty old)
    3) Then come back to your Ritan posting box to position your cursor where you want to insert the video
    4) Once you have the cursor where you want to insert the video, left-click on the YouTube icon that runs across the top of the posting box. that will open a pop-up box for you.
    5) Paste the previously copied URL address into the text field titled “Online Video URL” and then left-click on “Apply Link”

    That should place the video link, with the actual screen of the video displayed, into the body of your post. And there you go. Looking forward to your contributions as we encourage and build each other up in the Lord while we eagerly anticipate His soon return. Maranatha, Lord Jesus!!!

    John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."

    Thank you everyone for welcoming me, you are all so very kind, caring and considerate. I really enjoyed reading your replies. I was quite touched. You feel like my family. 🙂

    I am mostly on my computer, and come to this site mostly at night, because during the day I am usually busy doing different things. So that is why I wasn’t online earlier. The world tends to slow down at night. Besides, I am a night owl.

    After I send this post out, I am going to try to respond to some of your replies individually.

    gobyebye, I’ve been lurking on Rita Now for about five years now. Yes, I can see there are some very decent Christians here, that is a good thing. I really expected the Rapture to occur in 2016 because of so much talk that either 2016 was a jubilee year, or 2023 is a jubilee year.
    Try not to be disappointed, God has His appointed time, and we are to fight the good fight, and overcome the world. This emoticon showing a person doing the happy, happy dance who has overcome the world :yahoo:

    gobyebye I DO have clues when the Rapture might occur, I wanted to say this earlier, but I didn’t know if I should. Two or more reasons I’ve held on to for quite awhile, which I planned on posting this information soon, anyway. Maybe I’m that person you’ve been hanging around for, to give you a clue when the Rapture might be.

    This is the main reason I joined Rita Now, because this information has been weighing heavy on me, feeling uncomfortable not sharing this information with you all.

    I will present this information in two or three posts. I will try to post one of these posts by tonight. If not by tonight, then by tomorrow night.
