Col 2:8's comment on 2015-06-11 01:28:46:
This verse is simply explained: The Creator of ALL things has created time, space and matter. Mother Earth. But He also promised a New Heaven and New Earth for those who love Him. An end of what we are familiar with is coming. It 's called the End of Days or End of the Age. He has also stated He will shorten the allotted days of Tribulation on behalf of the elect. But to shorten does Not necessarily mean to shorten at the end of tribulation. It could also mean to shorten at the beginning of tribulation. For example: No flesh would survive unless there was a higher power to restrain the abomination of desolation. Knowing all things work together for good for the children of God, absolute surrender of fear must be done if we trust His promises. Present and future promises. Eternal God is our refuge and underneath are His everlasting arms.

Who are the "elected "? If those are the Jews, I may as well pack up my bags and move to the other side since I got nothing to loose.

Well saint 's, if the day 's are shorten for the elect who could make them longer. Why the unelected, if they would change there thought and intentions to something more ethical, moral,or spiritual life would change. It is only the good and perfect gift that comes from above, why are some under control of the ground. We need more from above, our higher nature in higher.

The days are evil if that day is not shortened there shall be mass backsliding of believes .because they can not endure the hardship that will come upon them.

Matthew 24:22 (A) And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved:
(Wormwood) Nuclear & Oil contamination on the globe has killed off almost all of the fish & life in the lakes rivers and oceans starting in 1986-2000 than 2000-2014 but they preach ecology to the poor as a way to enslave and entrap when they themselves are guilty of destroying Gods Heaven Earth
the RFID implant chip has proven in multiple tests that it kills every person it is put into by means of nickel-cadmium poisoning a very painful death causing venial disease like lesions all over the body in which there is no cure. every man woman and child is expected to take this death sentence or be subject to arrest as a criminal March 31 2017 in the USA.
Matthew 24:22 (B) but (for the elect's sake) those days shall be shortened.
Note not everyone was dead: Many of the very elect were saved alive to rebuild earth and carry on Gods seed that he planted in everyone on earth but few kept alive within themselves the precious gift of the Holy Spirit which is more valuable than the rarest buried treasure.
