Discussion for Luke 1

  • Luke 1:70 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began: "This prophecy is sent by commandment of God Almighty. Read and retain for reproof, instruction and your salvation. The following events mark world descent into spiritual damnation, or hell: the Syrian President will visit the United States for what appears to be a diplomacy visit. During the visit, the US will experience large-scale blackouts, particularly in the northeast, coastal and metro areas. Soon after, during the blackouts, the LORD JESUS CHRIST will save the faithful, children, teens, the destitute and others from around the world. Immediately proceeding this event, US coastal cities and military bases, beginning with NY, will fall under nuclear attack from Russia, China and others. Cities will lay desolate with the remaining people devastated and the world in chaos. Anarchy, famine, enslavement and horrible deaths will ensue. Repent and ask JESUS to save you from this hell. Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved."
  • Lovetta St.John
    I like the chapter of Luke. It is very long but detailed in information. This was the beginning of Jesus the messiah being born. How could this scripture be anything but exciting. I love how God even gives the names of his disciples' and child. Because names have meanings. Luke is a powerful scripture and deep in meaning. It tells the story and everyone should read these chapters very slowly.
