Discussion for Revelation 9

  • Word
    Religions I don't care about. Satan as antichrist will be here for 5 months It was shorten by God 4 the elect sake. Truth the vile one which is only Satan in book of Daniel takes over with peace and flatteries and tells everyone they will have prosperity and all you have to do is worship him because he sits in Jerusalem and says he is God and he has powers and does tricks that look real enough.

    The 3 1/2 year period was the 1260 year period of the dark ages that Rome ruled the world. Same as 42 mos and time, times and half a time. This was common knowledge in ALL protestant churches until the 1900s. The 5 mos. is the 150 yrs at the spread of Ottoman Empire. This was common knowledge and now NO ONE speaks of it nor knows truth. Wound healed. No connection between the two at all, sorry
  • Word
    Not so! FIVE months and it was shorten for the elect sake. Rev.9 God tells us twice that Satan and his locust will be here for five months to hurt them whom have not the seal of God in their minds and that seal is to understand that a fake instead of Christ or antichrist comes first Rev. 6vs1 and Rev. 12vs9 Satan kicked out to deceive the whole world.
  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    Alot of people profess that the 3 1/2 yrs were shortened to 5 mos. and it's not biblical . It's just another "futurism" claim to take eyes off the guilty party. It holds no more water than folks being raptured before the tribulation after the 6 th seal. God's people have always suffered on earth and will continue to. The next round will be the last. People always THINK they do God's will doing it

    It goes hand in hand. Due to the situation at hand. God uses different people for different struggles(pains,hurts,conflict of intrest), as well as blesssing(the enjoyment of the Holy Ghost presnce). God thoughts isnt like ours. So we show never settle for nothing (good or bad).
  • Word
    The three and a half years was shortened to 5 months for the elect sake. Satans locust priest and Satan as the false messiah will take the world with peace and flatteries in their deception. Reading Ezekiel and Zechariah 5 I think his message will be rapture and most Christian churches will follow right in to doing wrong. Never listen to preachers just listen to Fathers words and decide yourself.
