Thanks To You, NTEB Was Just Able To Completely Switch Over To Fully Secure HTTPS Technology On Our Website

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

After publishing 6,754 articles over a 9 year period using the HTTP protocol, switching everything over to HTTPS presented itself as a logistical nightmare.

People who own and maintain websites are aware of the relentless push by Google to make all websites HTTPS compliant. For those webmasters who don’t make the switch, Google says that their search engines rankings will be pushed back behind other sites with similar content who are HTTPS compliant. Further, sites still using HTTP are now labeled with a large, red and white “NOT SECURE” icon in the Chrome toolbar which causes much confusion and fear to users when they arrive.

NTEB started life way back in 2009 when SSL and HTTPS were still in their infancy. If you didn’t sell things, there really was no need to have HTTPS. In 2018, all that has changed dramatically. The Internet is where all America and even all the world meets now, and all sites need to be secure whether you sell things or not. But after publishing 6,754 articles over a 9 year period using the HTTP protocol, switching everything over to HTTPS presented itself as a logistical nightmare.

Two weeks ago we bit the bullet and started the switch, and it was not easy. It took a lot of time, it took the talent of multiple techs and developers, as well as new software on the server side, but we did it. The hardest part of making sure all the social media hooks switch over as well. Articles that showed 80,000+ shares on Facebook suddenly registered at zero! A workaround for that needed to be found as well, and thank the Lord, it was. But all that effort took lots of time, and a fair amount of money to accomplish. Bringing in developers to help me figure out problems costs about $45 per hour, and believe me, those hours stack up fast!

Thanks to you, the NTEB supporter, we had the money we needed to finish the job.

When you contribute to NTEB, you are an integral part of keeping this ministry alive and online. When I say we couldn’t do it without you guys , I mean that with all my heart. When you give financially, pray for us, share our links and repost us on your social media channels, you are making it possible for us to not only survive but to thrive and continue to grow.

When the Lord laid this ministry on my heart nearly a decade ago with the mandate to inform the brethren with unfiltered news, to teach and preach the word of God, and to encourage the saints, I was all in. I consider NTEB my legacy, my life’s work, and I am so very happy to do it 7 days a week, 365 days of the year. Back then, I honestly never imagined it would grow to be this large, and reach so many millions of people every year. People email me all the time from all over the world to thank me for making NTEB available as an invaluable end times resource. Because of your faithful giving, I can continue to create compelling and edifying content.

Thank you all for your continued support, and I look forward to what the Lord is going to do in 2019. Hopefully it will involve the words ‘come up hither!‘, how great would that be?

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the building of the recording studio, but it also goes to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations.



But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 12,621 people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 151,781 followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 13,600 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.

“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;” Titus 2:13 (KJV)

“Thank you very much!” – Geoffrey, editor-in-chief, NTEB
