Discussion for Matthew 24

    When the time frame in Gods Word is Rightly Divided you've got the Truth. The abomination of desolation is the Jewish Temple rebuilt. Gods Chosen Elect Zion being Baptized with the Living Fire of the Holy Spirit comes first if you look. When the time comes the true Holy Bride will be Gathered up along with the Holy Spirit {Tongues} and so shall we ever be with our Blessed Lord of Glory Amen.

    Peace every person on earth will be worshipping antichrist which translates instead of Christ because the churches are not teaching Christians that Satan comes looking like the Lamb of God. If they would just read Daniel which tells us the vile one comes taking over the world in peace and flatteries. The locust army is a bunch of preachers coming with him and the world will just love their husband

    Keep clean, keep filled the oil of your lamp, keep doing business, keep your eyes fixed on Jesus. He'll gather us ps. 18:9. His mercy will redeem us. No one knows when theif will come. So, be prepared the coming of Jesus. On that day some will left behind. Sinners, rich, powerfull, will be fled. Rev. 13:1 sinner will worship antichrist and cast into the lake of fire.

    I feel more bless by reading today's verse.

    I think this scripture gives proof of who God really is because if we take a look at the word of God, you can't doubt it's truth for example: Jesus said in his name we are going to cast out demons Mark 16 vs 17 and conquer things like fear and diseases and we've seen concrete physical proof of this word come alive. So to sum it all up, the word of Jesus about him being Almighty and king forever and the promise of the saints that they will rule as kings forever in eternity can be trusted too based on the above stated example.

    The word of the Lord will stand in the last day : The word will always be ! The word made the heaven and earth and all that therein is : The word formed man out of the dust of the ground : It is man that has messed up God's handy work !!! Because man rebelled against the WORD of the LORD !!!! God IS GOD !!! Soon all will stand before Him !!!
