  • Times of the Return of Jesus - in Reply on Luke 21:32
    Questions: "What happens at the end times? The end times is the final events of world history as we know it and is foretold by prophecy.

    The end times is the final events of world history as we know it, punctuated by the rapture - tribulation - Battle of Armageddon - Christ returning - Satan being put into the pit - the 1,000 year millennium - Satan's release - Satan's final defeat - and mankind's final judgment, as expanded below. While many believe that these end time events are about to start, the truth is, we can only guess.

    For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. But each in turn: Christ, the firstfruits [from the cross]; then, when he comes [the rapture], those who belong to him. Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power [after the 1,000 year millennium] (1 Corinthians 15: 22-24).

    The Rapture

    The word "Rapture" does not appear in the Bible but is used by Christians to describe an end time event. Rapture comes from the Latin word raptus which means "seize," "snatch" or "take away." It refers to those who obey and follow Jesus being taken up to meet Christ in the air.

    This is the first rapture. The time when all the saints through out history will rise to receive new eternal bodies combined with their souls.

    For the Lord himself, with a cry of command, with the archangel's call and with the sound of God's trumpet, will descend from heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up in the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will be with the Lord forever (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).

    The exact details of the rapture remain a mystery; however, we know that we will be physically resurrected at the Rapture (John 5:29; Acts 24:15; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).

  • Rob - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    Your comments are not surprising to me or concern me . Jesus is Lord ! Born of God in the flesh died , rose again , ascended to heaven coming in glory . Not a fake rapture .

    Not a trinity god of mans making . Repent while you can Jesus is not God , but the Son of God ! I'm very happy in the Lord and know him ! Maybe some day you will ! God bless !
  • Mark Lytle on Revelation 1
    Wow. I have been reading through these comments. There seems to be a disagreement with meanings.

    Let me run this by you all. Did you know that scripture, and it's meanings

    are meaningless in some cases.Let me explain.

    I was a missionaries kid. My parents took me to Papua New Guinea in 1963.

    My father preached the gospel to the darkest of the dark hearts.

    I witnessed a great moving of our lord

    and the heathens of darkness came to the light of our lord. They were excited and wanted more of this lord.

    Now, they did not have any books, or anything to guide them. They never heard of a Bible. They were saved from their sins by hearing my father preach the gospel to them.

    They would shout and cry. They were filled with the spirit of our lord. And then they proceeded to learn about the Bible.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    You don't comment. You allege, accuse, and confuse baby Christians. You know what you're doing; that's the tragedy.

    I don't see the love of Jesus Christ in you.

    You are spot on brother!
  • Terry on Revelation 16:16
    Comment by Allen on Genesis 9:24 concerning Noah and the curse on Canaan is the first and only comment I have ever seen of MANY other attempts to explain this verse, which seems correct to me. I ALWAYS had assumed that Noah's YOUNGER SON was meaning the same thing as YOUNGER GRANDSON since that is who he cursed, Canaan, the younger of Ham's four sons. Also, if Noah would have been talking about Ham it would have simply read SON instead of "younger son" which also would not fit well due to the fact that Ham was the middle son, NOT the younger son. And finally, we learn that it was AFTER all the covering up had occurred that Noah awoke, so he did not even know that Ham had done anything wrong. It never says anywhere that Ham DID anything wrong. He could have glanced and then immediately turned away and went to tell his brothers to figure out what to do and the other two brothers had a good idea. No harm. BUT... when Noah awoke, he KNEW what had been done to him. That is key. Surely, we can assume that if he knew WHAT had been done to him, then by the assignment of the curse, he also seemed to know WHO did that to him... whatever it was. I also liked the comparison Allen made that JESUS is called the son of David, when actually he was the grandson of David. Language was a bit different back then. And any stories about the "sin of Ham" are a lazy reader's myth. So when Noah woke up, he knew what had happened and assigned the punishment to the guilty one, Canaan... period.

    Such as Jesus said in John 17:5:

    "And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was."
  • Rob on Matthew 7
    Matthew 7 v 24 ,25,26,27

    Here is the remedy for not falling away of which we are in .

    Because sin abounds , it will get more difficult and many will fall away , just prior to the appearance of the man of sin Antichrist. False religions will only compound the problem , because It's dishonorable to God , you must leave sinful religion of any kind . Of suffer with it .

    Be a doer of the word not a hearer only .
  • Does anyone know where the Pretrib Rapture is in the Bible ?

    I can not find it , I only find the 1st resurrection and the coming of Christ our hope on the last day . As Jesus said .

    I was taught it and believed it until I read the Bible for myself ! And low and behold it's not there in word or event , unless you can twist scriptures out of context , but then we could have 300 denominations if that was done .
  • Rob - in Reply on 1 John 2
    I was right about you the first time Rich , spare your words and try repentance some time !
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on 1 John 2
    I'm sorry Rob, but this statement seems backwards. So if I spoke a word to you, you would say the word was there before I was?? God Almighty, the Father, is the Most High. Jesus Christ is the first beloved Son of God. They are a part of each other.

    So now you're calling people who believe that Jesus Christ existed before He was born on earth a "cult"? Seriously, maybe just ease up and wait to ask Jesus Christ yourself? Come on brother.
  • Rob on Isaiah 49:22
    James 2 v 19

    Thou believest that there is one God ; thou does well : the devils also believe, and tremble .

    20 But will thou know O vain man .......

    So the devils know the truth about God more than the trintarians , scary thought .
  • Leoniefoltz on Isaiah 55:13
    Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to say that I've really enjoyed surfing around your blog posts. After all I will be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again soon!
  • I think I may write a book on the Trintarian heresy .

    It's beginning and the multitudes of people that lost their lives and the so many people deceived by it .

    I have no sympathy for it .

    When you look at how moronic it is under the Holy Spirits teaching , it just shows how much the devil can blind the minds of men .
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 25
    Yvonne, if you type in Kingdom of God in the Search the Bible box at the top left, you will find all their occurrences in the Bible & particularly in Matthew's Gospel.

    Cathy (& Karcelia) you're both so right. When the foundation is weak & not in prepared soil, the building will crack & collapse.

    Most without the love of God in their hearts, have as their foundation the welfare & happiness of the mother rather than the embryo or unborn child. Why? The embryo is only that, an embryo - even though there may be life there, it is still something less than human, they say. The welfare of the mother is more important as her usefulness is greater to her family & society.

    Those who love the Lord & know His Will, regard every human life in every stage of its development, as special & precious & to destroy that life is murder & so the destroyer stands before the God Who gave life & a life's Plan to that child. In our quest to enjoy life in both intimate & non-intimate environments, we pay little heed to the outcomes of our thoughts & actions. And so the verse seems most applicable: "every man did that which was right in his own eyes" (Judges 17:6). It was no longer what God required of them & us but what we deem as correct & warranted based on our desires - and as you said, this folly is increasing in greater measure in the world around us.

    To abort a child prior to 20-22 weeks as acceptable, is still murder. Will any government propose that it should be when both sperm & ovum unite is when life is created? Unfortunately, most don't accept that life commences before that point, even though it is clearly seen in the laboratory. Is the embryo then likened to an ant which we could step on & extinguish, giving it little further thought? How will mankind stand before God in that day? What excuse will he give or can he give? God's Righteousness will blow open the inherent wickedness deep within his heart & manifest all that has been covered over for the sake of happiness & expediency.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 12
    That's a fair comment you made, Veronica. I don't believe that Abram got away lightly over this deception as all sin is abominable to the Lord. Yet, we aren't told anymore about this matter apart from God's dealing with Pharaoh by sending plagues on him & his household. Rather this portion emphasizes God's action against Pharaoh for taking another woman, & especially, though not mentioned, one from a holy (a set apart) lineage. Maybe Pharaoh was ignorant over this & our ignorance over a possible objection by Abram & Sarai to her being taken, but his act of acquiring was sufficient to bring on God's displeasure.

    So it's difficult to give a clear opinion based on what is revealed to us. What took place before Pharaoh & God's Actions as a result of the wrongs by both Abram & Pharaoh, are things we're not privy to & best left in the 'Unknown Tray'.
  • Servant of God - in Reply on 1 John 2
    A good question, many would struggle with it and find themselves in the chicken or the egg situation. The reality God was there always, so the question of 'first' wouldn't be right. God, Jesus the Son, and Holy spirit are all in one. They cannot be separated from each other. There are many verses in the bible say the same. Also, there are only 6 days of creation according to the bible. And no where is it mentioned that Jesus was created!!

    God the Father, Jesus the Son and Holy spirit all are outside the realm of time and space. As such it is difficult for many to understand how can something be forever without being created but that is the truth.

    They all were present even before the creation.

    Other scripture as a fellow brother suggested, was John 1.1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    2 The same was in the beginning with God.

    3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

    Also in John 1.14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

    Hope this helps.

    Many verses trintarians use like Jesus is the word would say the son came first if they really believe those verses saying it is Jesus .

  • Cornell Flagg on Proverbs 29:2
    My question is: any there anybody being tormented in hell ?

    if we all have to stand before the great white throne judgement,

    hell should be empty.

    but i am reminderd that the rich fool lifted up his eyes in hell being tormented in flames.

    thank you very much for clarity

    sincerely cornell b flagg.

    Verse 22 and 23

    If you do not believe that Jesus is who God said he is My SON , then if

    You make Jesus anyone other than Gods witness you are creating another Jesus , for example GOD the Son or apart of a triune God . That's not the witness of God , Any other than what God said This is my Son is a denial of Gods very witness .

    Any Jesus other than the one born in Bethlehem in the flesh and born of God . Is a lie and foreign to the truth . And Antichrist.
  • Rob - in Reply on Revelation 12
    God gave witness that Jesus is his son .

    There is no higher authority.

    So how say some of you it's not the case . Actually Jesus is not his son but God himself !

    You can not understand what God said if you alter exactly what he said " my Son .

    I have another question for you at about the same level , which came first the chicken or the egg ?
