    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).

    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.

    This one got cropped off too. Dan and Rev prophecy uses a day for a year.(Ez4:6,Num14:34) just like the 70 weeks that tells the EXACT year Christ was Baptised,crucified,Stephen stoned and the gospel given to Gentiles because the people didn't make an end to their transgressions for sin. 1260 days, 42 mos and time,times and 1/2 are all the same dark ages too.God is so awesome! Hope all understand
  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    The 5 mos isn't lateral. All prophecy in Dan
  • Tim
    How lost are people we have with us, who take lives because the enemy Satan is in their mind,their spirit,their souls, yet as in verse 9:21, they refuse the Truth and refuse to repent!!!
  • Wayne
    Better get right with Christ!
