Brilliant Argument for Pre-Trib Rapture - By Gary W. Ritter - https://www.raptureready.com/2022/07/05/brilliant-argument-for-pre-trib-rapture-by-gary-w-ritter/
Sometimes I come across something another person has written and just wish I’d been smart enough to make the point myself. Barring that, the next best thing is to highlight the issue and give credit where it’s due.
There are numerous sound, doctrinal reasons for a Pre-Tribulation Rapture. I’ve previously discussed many of them in my writings and Awaken Bible Prophecy Update videos. I also did an audio series of twelve episodes of Rapture Readings earlier this year. If interested, you can check out the first of these commentaries here. To listen to additional ones, look for the blue background on the title slides on my Rumble channel in this link above.
What I want to relate today is from another blogger’s post written a couple of years ago that I missed or didn’t appreciate when I was reading her series of articles on this subject. The title of blogger Heather’s article is End Times #8: A Pre-Trib Rapture is the Most Merciful Option. Heather is an excellent writer and is best known for her fervent stance against Calvinism. Given her experience with a Calvinist church and her subsequent research, I’d definitely put her in the expert category and would put her up against any committed Calvinist. Because she’s a thinker who also considers approaches to Scripture outside the box, she can be very persuasive.
The case that Heather makes in the linked post deals with those who will be left behind once the Rapture occurs with Jesus coming in the clouds for His true church – His ekklesia of called-out believers.
Here’s the question: What is it after the Rapture that causes untold millions to turn to faith in Jesus? This is one of the most important issues for believers in the various Rapture timing options to consider. Here is Heather:
“If the rapture is mid-trib or post-trib (which is possible if the theologians who believe this are correct), then the believers of the church age will face terrible persecution at the hands of man and Satan. But if this were true, what incentive would there be for unbelievers to turn to God during that time while the Christians are being persecuted? Why would people side with the Christians if there was nothing to prove to them that the Christians are right? They would have no real reason to think that the Bible was true all along or to desire to turn to Christ in the face of such persecution.
But if the rapture is pre-trib and before the mass martyrdom starts, then the world would have the biggest wake-up call ever and the greatest proof that the Bible is true, causing many people to turn to God despite the fact that they know the persecution is coming. The proof of God, the proof that the Bible is true and predicted it all, would be so shockingly clear that they would know that they have no other option than to choose God or choose eternal death. And many people would be willing to choose God then, to face death so long as they know they will have life eternally.”
Process this for a minute. Let’s say the Rapture is mid or post-Trib, or there is no Rapture at all, as some like to hallucinate. EVERYONE enters the Tribulation period (under the assumption that there IS a defined 7-year Tribulation, which some also deny). The UN Agenda 2030, in concert with the World Economic Forum’s Fourth Industrial Revolution, moves forward according to their schedule and desires. Build Back Better charges ahead at full speed.
So, here we are, fully committed Christians, half-hearted ones, and all the heathens of the world experiencing the wrath of God through the plagues that He begins raining down through the opening of the Seal Judgments. Not only that, but we’re at the mercy of the globalists with their devious endeavors to depopulate the world.
Now, some say that because Christians will go into and through the Tribulation, God will supernaturally protect us as He did with Joseph’s family when they went down to Goshen in Egypt, overstayed their welcome, and had to be delivered through the Exodus via the ten plagues of God upon Pharaoh and his people. That’s a rosy prognostication, but there’s absolutely nothing in Scripture which paints this picture – nothing textual that one can cling to so as to substantiate this hypothesis.
That being the case, what differentiates the Christians enduring this terrible time from anyone else? We’re in the same lifeboat that is being swamped by the massive waves of destruction and death pouring over the sides of our craft. Given this scenario, how is it that so many unbelievers become martyrs in the Lord during the Tribulation? If there’s nothing the pagans supernaturally see about the Christians enduring the same fate they are, why should anyone profess faith in Christ and actually die for Him?
But, as Heather brilliantly points out, the pre-Trib Rapture changes EVERYTHING. Surely there will be many misleading explanations for the sudden vanishing of millions of people worldwide, from aliens to Mother Gaia striking back against those who create such disharmony on the earth. However, word will get out. Many of those remaining will have been evangelized. There will also be those fleeing the chaos and scarcity who end up in the homes of Raptured believers. Since many of us are preparing for that day, these Tribulation refugees will find the Bibles, the videos explaining the Great Disappearance, the letters of greeting to “You who have been left behind,” as well as the stores of food, gold, and weapons.
Yes, these latter items will be welcome and necessary, but because of the confusion that will reign, the spiritual sustenance we’ve provided will draw many and provide the needed answers for their lives. Not to mention the evangelism God provides via His two witnesses, the 144,000 Jewish evangelists, and finally, the angel that proclaims the Gospel flying throughout the earth.
The seeking left-behind masses will come to an understanding that it was truly the work of our supernatural and loving God who snatched us from the midst of these horrors. The Holy Spirit will prick their conscience, and they will pursue deeply the things of Christ who sacrificed Himself and gave this astounding gift of sanctuary from the storm in the prelude to eternal life. These seekers will come to know that because of their poor choice of rejecting Jesus, they must partake in this punishment, yet they will also realize that even if they lose their lives for the sake of Christ, they will gain them forever by declaring Him as their Savior and Lord.
BECAUSE we were Raptured prior to all that will come during the Tribulation, many heathens will forsake themselves and choose Jesus Christ. Will it be incredibly difficult and scary? Absolutely. But they will understand that if they continue preferring the ways of the world and submit to Antichrist’s lies, they will be doomed to Death and Sheol. The Rapture will be the initial overwhelming evidence that God is real, the gift of eternal life through Christ Jesus is worthwhile, and they too can cling to that hope in the confidence of faith.
The mercy of the pre-Tribulation Rapture is one more aspect of the grace of God – one more opportunity that He gives to this lost and dying world to profess the Name of Jesus.

'Operation Breaking Dawn' Proved A Blowout For Israel – Yoav Limor - https://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=5512
A confluence of circumstances led the latest round of fighting to conclude as the most successful operation Israel has ever waged in Gaza. Palestinian Islamic Jihad suffered an unprecedentedly severe blow, while Israel emerged largely unscathed.
To borrow a sports phase, this was a blowout. Islamic Jihad lost two senior field commanders in Gaza--Tayseer Jabari and Khaled Mansour--along with numerous assets related to the manufacturing and storage of weapons, headquarters and outposts.
Meanwhile, the terrorist organization failed to inflict any serious damage at all inside Israel and also failed to drag Hamas, the Arabs of Israel and eastern Jerusalem or Hezbollah in the north into the fray, leaving it alone in the fight.
There are more than a few reasons for this extraordinary accomplishment. The first and main reason is the quality of the intelligence provided by the Shin Bet, which set the table for the two assassinations that decided the fight. It's rare to obtain intelligence information of this sort about terrorist commanders who have lived for years as targets and are aware of the dangers surrounding them. It's even rarer for this to occur when tensions are high and during actual fighting.
Last Thursday, when the head of the Shin Bet informed the political echelon about the opportunity to eliminate Jabari, he changed Israel's footing from a defensive to an offensive posture. The intelligence about Mansour was already the knockout punch, after which it was clear that if nothing irregular was to occur, the fight was won. From that point forward, it was just a matter of time until the Egyptians could draft a ceasefire, which Israel wanted after meeting all of its objectives.
One of these objectives was keeping Hamas out of the fray. It seems the largest armed group in Gaza and the sovereign entity there wasn't eager to pay a price--military, economic or civilian--for Islamic Jihad's lunacy, which all started because of an arrest in Judea and Samaria.
Perhaps Hamas also had an interest in Israel taking care of this constant headache, although this will be further tested down the road by Hamas' response to Islamic Jihad the next time it fires a rocket. In other words, Israel gave Hamas an opportunity to solidify its grip on Gaza and put a muzzle on this smaller, more extremist organization.
Another objective was to separate Judea and Samaria from Gaza. After the pummeling it received in Gaza, Islamic Jihad should think a thousand times before trying to shut down Gaza over every arrest in Judea and Samaria. This is a lesson for Hamas as well, which is also trying to blur the lines between the two sectors.
The fact that the Arabs of Israel remained peaceful and the Temple Mount didn't erupt into riots despite the thousands of Jews who visited the holy site on Tisha B'Av was particularly fortuitous, and should deter Hamas in the future.
The operation's success was also aided by the precision capabilities of the Israeli Air Force and GOC Southern Command. Operations of this nature, which are conducted in a small and crowded area like Gaza, can easily go sideways due to tactical errors.
The fact that every payload was delivered with surgical precision, together with the small number of non-combatant casualties, helped keep Hamas out of the picture and international criticism at bay. The fact that Palestinian civilian casualties were mostly caused by failed rocket launches also helped crystallize the Israeli message that one side is fighting terror and one side is harming civilians in both Israel and Gaza.
Four more points to consider: 1) The political echelon worked in complete synchronicity both internally and externally with the military echelon, sweeping away all the misconceptions about its ability to make security decisions. 2) The responsible behavior of civilians prevented unnecessary casualties on the home front. 3) The public-relations machine was effective and efficient, maximizing the accomplishments and neutralizing the landmines. 4) The Egyptian mediation, which again proved its effectiveness.
As always, the operation s success can only be assessed in the future, in terms of the degree and duration of the deterrence against Islamic Jihad and Hamas; how fast it rehabilitates itself; the internal restraint in Gaza; and the ability to keep the sectors separated.
The bottom line, however, is that nothing fundamentally changed in Gaza these past few days and anyone who believes so is in for a rude awakening. Even if a period of quiet does ensure, whether prolonged or extremely temporary, without deep-rooted solutions the shooting will eventually resume.
Are We Witnessing the Collapse Of America’s System Of Government? - by Michael Snyder - http://endoftheamericandream.com/are-we-witnessing-the-collapse-of-americas-system-of-government/
The corruption is right out in the open now. The whole world was stunned by the vicious raid on Mar-a-Lago, and it is quite obvious why it was ordered. Even though close to half of the country wants Donald Trump to run for president again, the Washington establishment is going to do whatever it takes to keep that from happening. If the Washington establishment is successful, will our system of government be able to survive? I think that is a legitimate question at this point. In order for any system of government to function, a certain percentage of the population must have faith in it. Even before the raid on Mar-a-Lago, poll after poll showed that confidence in our system of government was hovering near all-time lows. If the elite get what they want and Trump is banned from ever running for president from this point forward, it is going to fundamentally shake this nation to the core.
For the first time in U.S. history, the home of a former president has been raided.
Meanwhile, the FBI has evidence of major crime after major crime on Hunter Biden’s laptop and has done nothing.
At this point, I think that the Biden crime family could literally sacrifice children to pagan deities on the White House lawn and get away with it.
And of course the Clintons have been committing major crimes for decades without suffering any serious consequences.
In fact, Hillary Clinton used the raid on Mar-a-Lago as an opportunity to sell hats mocking her email scandal…
Hillary used the opportunity to cash in on sales of the hats which bear the slogan ‘But Her Emails’.
By mid-morning, the $32-a-pop accessories were sold out online.
Everyone knows that the Clintons were very close to Jeffrey Epstein, but none of the names in Epstein’s infamous “black book” have ever been charged.
Epstein visited the White House at least 17 times, and Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s private jet at least 26 times, and our corrupt law enforcement officials know all about this and have done nothing.
So perhaps it is appropriate that the judge that approved the raid on Mar-a-Lago literally represented some of Jeffrey Epstein’s former workers in court…
The Florida judge who signed off the FBI raid on Donald Trump’s mansion represented Jeffrey Epstein’s workers, it has been revealed.
Bruce Reinhart acted for several employees of the billionaire pedophile before he sanctioned the ‘unannounced’ search on Mar-a-Lago yesterday.
He left the local US Attorney’s office over a decade ago to set up a private practice and help staff members including his Lolita Express pilots and his scheduler.
The more you dig, the more connections you find.
It is one big giant club, and you aren’t part of it.
And anyone that threatens that club becomes a target. As Ted Cruz has correctly observed, the FBI and the Department of Justice are now being used as weapons against the enemies of the D.C. establishment…
The FBI raiding Donald Trump is unprecedented.
It is corrupt & an abuse of power.
What Nixon tried to do, Biden has now implemented: The Biden Admin has fully weaponized DOJ & FBI to target their political enemies.
And with 87K new IRS agents, they’re coming for YOU too.
If we actually had a just society, the Bidens and the Clintons would already be in prison.
But that will never happen.
The entire world can see the hypocrisy, and Ron DeSantis hit the nail on the head when he said that we have now become a banana republic…
The raid of MAL is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves. Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.
What we are witnessing is a classic case of selective enforcement.
The other side can literally get away with murder, and meanwhile federal law enforcement officials are desperate to dig up any shred of evidence against Trump that they possibly can.
Could this potentially backfire on the D.C. establishment in a major way? Matt Taibbi is warning that what is playing out right in front of our eyes could be “the dumbest and most inadvertently destructive political gambit in the recent history of this country”…
As of now, it’s impossible to say if Trump’s alleged offense was great, small, or in between. But this for sure is a huge story, and its hugeness extends in multiple directions, including the extraordinary political risk inherent in the decision to execute the raid. If it backfires, if underlying this action there isn’t a very substantial there there, the Biden administration just took the world’s most reputable police force and turned it into the American version of the Tonton Macoute on national television. We may be looking at simultaneously the dumbest and most inadvertently destructive political gambit in the recent history of this country.
The top story today in the New York Times, bylined by its top White House reporter, speculates this is about “delayed returning” of “15 boxes of material requested by officials with the National Archives.” If that’s true, and it’s not tied to January 6th or some other far more serious offense, then the Justice Department just committed institutional suicide and moved the country many steps closer to once far-out eventualities like national revolt or martial law. This is true no matter what you think of Trump.
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
The stakes are incredibly high. The D.C. establishment has gone all-in on destroying Trump and preventing him from ever running for the presidency ever again.
If they win, they win big.
If they lose, they lose big.
And either way, what they are doing is incredibly destructive to our system of government.
Once people lose faith in our system, it will be nearly impossible to restore it.
For the very first time since the founding of our nation, the very legitimacy of our system of government is being called into question.
Everyone can see that our federal government has become deeply, deeply corrupt, and at some point all of that corruption could cause it to completely collapse.
‘Lawless’ FBI Raid Of Mar-a-Lago Demonstrates That America Is ‘Corrupt At a Level Not Seen Before’ – By Breanna Claussen - https://harbingersdaily.com/lawless-fbi-raid-of-mar-a-lago-demonstrates-that-america-is-corrupt-at-a-level-not-seen-before/
In a show of blatant political corruption, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on Monday conducted a raid at Mar-a-Lago, the home of former President Donald Trump.
The pre-dawn raid was described by the 45th president in a statement, who said that the actions of the FBI demonstrated that America has become “corrupt at a level not seen before.”
“These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” he described in the statement. “Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.”
“After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate,” Trump asserted. “It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections.”
“Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those countries, corrupt at a level not seen before,” he lamented.
“I stood up to America’s bureaucratic corruption, I restored power to the people, and truly delivered for our Country, like we have never seen before. The establishment hated it,” Trump continued. “The lawlessness, political persecution, and Witch Hunt must be exposed and stopped. I will continue to fight for the Great American people!”
The FBI justified its actions by claiming that the former president had taken classified documents from the White House to his Mar-a-Lago home at the end of his term.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi responded to the lawless raid by celebrating in an interview with MSNBC, stating that “no one is above the law, not even a president or a former president of the United States.”
Pelosi’s comments, however, ignore the numerous people within the Democrat Party who have operated outside of what the law allows without being held accountable. As many have pointed out following the raid, Hillary Clinton is a primary example.
Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State during the Trump administration, noted this contrast in treatment, calling the FBI’s actions dangerous and shameful.
“Executing a warrant against ex-POTUS is dangerous,” Pompeo, who served as CIA Director from 2017–2018, stressed. “The apparent political weaponization of DOJ/FBI is shameful. AG must explain why 250 yrs of practice was upended [with] this raid. I served on Benghazi Com where we proved Hilliary possessed classified info. We didn’t raid her home.”
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee decried the FBI, but cautioned Trump supporters not to “take the bait.”
“Yesterday’s abuse of power by the FBI was so egregious that it seems likely to be a calculated provocation, to goad us into reacting in a way that gives them an excuse to crack down even more on conservatives as domestic terrorists,” he warned. “They would LOVE for you to do that. So, whatever you do, DON’T TAKE THE BAIT.”
“It seemed in 2016 to be just a handful of rogue FBI and DOJ officials,” Huckabee continued. “But we now know beyond doubt, with the shameful pre-dawn raid by 30+ FBI agents on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago home to confiscate 15 boxes of materials, that it’s a systemic, methodical, highly orchestrated attempt to shut half the country completely out.”
“Only if evidence might be destroyed is a raid justified. Also, they would’ve needed a special warrant to enter Trump’s safe, but they did it, anyway. They wanted to create the illusion that there’s something criminal about Trump. The criminality is with the Department of ‘Justice,’” he insisted. “Yes, criminality.”
“The chilling event that occurred yesterday –- the most flagrant abuse of power I’ve seen in America in my lifetime –- comes after months and months –- years, actually –- of revelations about how dirty the FBI has been, playing with political enemies while letting political buddies off the hook for almost unbelievable corruption: Hillary’s blatant obstruction of justice and destruction of evidence,” Huckabee wrote. “Her role in starting the whole Trump-Russia hoax. Obvious influence peddling by the Biden family. Their own participation in election interference in 2016, 2020, and now the upcoming elections.”
“You don’t have to be a part of Trump’s so-called base to know: The abuse of power taking place now absolutely cannot stand. If this doesn’t show us how seriously twisted the justice system is in 2022 America, nothing ever will,” he concluded.
God’s Outpouring of Righteous Accountability
Jesus stated in Matthew 24:12 that in the time prior to His return lawlessness/iniquity would “abound” in the world. The word “iniquity” in this verse comes from the Greek word “anomia,” which carries an intriguing meaning in light of the lawlessness we are witnessing today. “Anomia” means to be without law. More specifically, to be in a state in which laws exist but are flagrantly violated.
Additionally, the apostle Paul warned that in the last days “men of corrupt minds” would seek to restrain and hinder the truth (2 Timothy 3:8-9).
From a Christian Perspective, many might ask why God appears to allow the corrupt and lawless to prosper in their wicked actions.
King David in the Bible expressed this same frustration, asking the Lord why the ungodly are met with success.
Psalm 73 states, “Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches. Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency. For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning… When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me; Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end. Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction.” (12-14, 16-18)
Similarly, in our generation, God has also provided us assurance that He, Himself, will respond and put an end to the corruption in our world through the pouring of his wrath on mankind during the seven-year tribulation (from which the Church is absent), culminating in the second coming of Christ.
2 Timothy 3:8-9 states that these corrupt minds “shall proceed no further” and “their folly shall be manifest unto all men.”
The lawlessness prevalent today indicates that God’s outpouring of righteous accountability is close on the horizon. His cup of wrath is filling up.
Franklin Graham, discussing the lawlessness of our society, underscored that “God’s justice and holiness demand that evil be punished, not just here and now but in the eternal state as well.”
“Upon His glorious return, our Lord Jesus Christ will mete out judgment for those who have refused His gracious offer of salvation and instead lived as rebels on earth,” he explained.
“In God’s mercy for sin-stained humanity, His justice was executed upon His one and only Son at the cross,” Graham noted. “The punishment for our sins was completed, so that we who believe on His Name might no longer be condemned. ‘For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God’ (1 Peter 3:18).”
Daily Jot: Stupidocrisy: Ignoring the message - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
One of the most egregious abuses of government power in American history has occurred and those in charge claim they knew nothing about it. This doesn’t pass the straight-face test. If the FBI or IRS or Homeland Security or any of the other strongarms of the federal government can invade a person’s house, a person who is cooperating with investigations and is not a lethal threat to society, someone like former president Donald Trump, they can do it to you. And to show the complicity of political opponents, all you have to do is listen to their responses—they claim they don’t know anything. When a target like the former president is publicly raided, you can bet your jackboots they all know what’s going on.
Let’s start with the White House. As reported by several media outlets because the White House Daily Briefing was not posted on whitehouse.gov at the time of this writing, Biden Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said, “No, the president was not briefed, was not aware of it. No one at the White House was given a heads up. No, that did not happen…The president learned about this just like you all did — through the public reports and we learned about this just like the American people did. We did not know about this and we had not been briefed. We learned about this as you all were reporting it.” When asked if the raid was politically motivated, Jean-Pierre said that she would not “speak to that from here.”
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) didn’t know anything either. She told MSNBC’s Morning Joe, “All I know about that is what is in the public domain. I was surprised that it flashed on my phone last evening, so I don’t really have too much to say except that to have a visit like that, you need a warrant. To have a warrant, you need justification. And that says that no one is above the law, not even a president or a former president of the United States.” Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) told the Rachel Maddow Show, “Well, I know nothing about it other than what I’ve read like everybody else, so I think it’s wise for me to withhold comments until we learn more.” Can anyone say “Talking Points”? Attorney General Merrick Garland isn’t saying anything either. Nobody knows nothing about no raid.
We do know that the judge who approved the warrant for the raid, Bruce Reinhart, resigned from the South Florida US Attorney’s Office in 2008 then the next day went to work for convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s employees. He then donated thousands of dollars to former president Obama’s campaign. Later he was appointed judge. There’s always a connection. Politicians who always know everything and now say they don’t know anything speaks volumes. As in 2 Timothy 3:1, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” One thing for certain, the Democrats are sending a perilous message to those who dare oppose them. Ignoring it would be, say it with me…Stupidocrisy.
Daily Devotion: Don’t Underestimate the Enemy - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
But as I looked at everything I had worked so hard to accomplish, it was all so meaningless—like chasing the wind. There was nothing really worthwhile anywhere.
https://harvest.org/resources/devotion/dont-underestimate-the-enemy-2/ - Listen
A story is told of a boxer who was being badly beaten in a match. He leaned over to his trainer and yelled, “Throw in the towel! This guy is killing me!”
His trainer yelled back, “He is not! He’s not even hitting you! He hasn’t even laid a glove on you!”
The dazed boxer said, “Then I wish you would watch that referee, because someone sure is hitting me!”
In the same way, our culture is getting hit. Our kids are being hit. And they don’t even know who is hitting them.
One of the most brilliant strategies Satan has managed to pull off is convincing people he doesn’t exist while he manipulates their lives. He is active. And really, this is the only plausible explanation for the horrible, depraved wickedness that mankind is capable of.
If you believe the premise that people are basically good, then you have more faith than I do—or maybe you’re a bigger fool. People are basically bad. And the devil works through the fallen nature of people, getting them to do evil.
God gives everyone a choice in life called free will, the ability to say yes or no. Romans 6:16 says, “Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living.”
Jesus summed it up succinctly when He said, “The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life” (John 10:10). There is your choice in life: God or the devil.
Don’t underestimate the devil. He’s a sly and skillful foe. And he has had many years of experience in honing his craft.
