    I don't discuss Trib Times anymore. The Lord said be ready to go Whenever. Why try to calculate? Don't say Maranatha if you don't really mean it.

    Are you referring to all pre-tribbers? If so, then you are completely off on your description of what I believe. There are many people who will die during the tribulation, who will be beheaded. These are not saved believers. These are those who refuse to worship the beast and take his mark.-----Revelation 13:16 And he causeth ALL, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

  • Mike on Genesis 1:21
    God created great whales (Hebrew: tannyn). The "tanniyn" swallow as illustrated in Jeremiah 51:34 where it shows the king of Babylon swallowing like a dragon (tanniyn).

    Jeremiah 51:34 Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon hath devoured me, he hath crushed me, he hath made me an empty vessel, he hath swallowed me up like a dragon, he hath filled his belly with my delicates, he hath cast me out.

    But in the case of Genesis 1:21,it speaks of the "swallowing up of death" by life which becomes a source of the praise of God by His people among the nations of this world. The "saying"the praise of Godcomes to pass: "death is swallowed up in victory".

    1 Corinthians 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.(55) O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

    Death is swallowed up of life.

    2 Corinthians 5:4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.

    In Isaiah ch 25,it opens with the praise of God.

    Isaiah 25:1 O LORD, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.

    And tells us that He will swallow up death in victory and we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.

    Isaiah 25:7 And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.(8) He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.(9) And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    I agree with you that the scripture you've chosen is a good foundation for search. I have another you should use too.

    Knowing how hard it is with Churches closed, to search. See if your Church has any organized activities for singles, like: meet for lunch; movies, meet at each other's apartments for coffee, chat or board games. Have to work around co-vid you see. Put a sign up sheet on a church bulletin board online. See what happens.

    In the mean time, set aside an hour a day to sit in silence before the Lord (fast from all media). Read Genesis 24; where Abraham sends his servant to find Isaac a wife. It's a perfect Read for you.

    Ask the Lord to send an angel to find your "Rebekah" and bring her to you. You are going to have to keep your faith strong.

    You can ask God how the search goes? Is there anything you can do for Him while you are waiting? Consider "enlarging your tent".

    RE: Michael Gonzolas comment: Very insightful! Question: Because this is an OT scripture, wouldn't the Hebrew word for seed be more accurate? The Hebrew word for seed in this verse is "Zera" and is only used once in the whole scripture. What is your insight on this word? Thanks!

  • Backsliding means not going forward - in Reply on 1 John 3
    If our "conscience" ACCUSES us after we've already repented and asked for forgiveness; then your Accuser is Satan. His mission to steal, kill and destroy. That voice that accuses is, is spiritual warfare. Ephesians 6

    You need every piece to protect your self.

    Have you read Luke 15, about the Prodigal son (or daughter)? If that describes your experience, then you are forgiven and may now turn and freely embrace Gods Love and forgiveness. He saw you coming back home to Him, way before you did.

    You are hidden in His hand and he's not going to let you slip away. The robe the prodigals father put on him, is the robe of righteousness (you have right standing with God again). The adornments are Gods favor which had never left you; no matter what you did.

    It's the willful repeated backsliding that burns holes in our conscience. If you stop feeling that conviction, it is Much Harder to return to the Father who loves you perfectly.

    That nagging you feel is The Holy Spirit at work in your conscience to help you Will to return to right standing. Cling to Him with all of your strength.

    We mess up daily (even me :), which is why we run to 1 John 1:9, to confess those things and be forgiven. A psalm says that the Lords Mercies are new and refreshed towards us every morning! We can start our days thanking and praising Him for that.

    Our forever home is in heaven. We're not to love this world system that is going to pass away. We begin living our lives for heaven now. Do the right things. ALL of heaven is on your team cheering you over the finish line!

    If you sin you have an Advocate with the Father. Jesus. If satan accuses you in court, God hears the case. Your Advocate (attorney) checks The Lambs Book of Life for YOUR name. It is; and the case is dismissed for lack of evidence; be cause all of your sins are covered by The Blood of Jesus!!

    Reverence this knowledge. Keep it close.

    Pray & Praise daily, the Lord of Glory.

    I would sincerely like to thank each one of you for taking the time to provide insight and help in further understanding. I truly can feel God's love and encouragement through your responses! Thank you for the bible verses that correlate directly with the word of God to provide answers. I genuinely am appreciative from my heart and soul. It's time I devote myself further to God and begin "fighting" the "good fight." It is time I proclaim my love for God to my friends who don't believe and to put those aside who have no faith in our Lord and Saviour. (I will pray for the encouragement and word from God to later speak to them as an invitation to receive God's love and blessings.) After posting my questions last night I prayed and spoke to God. I then read some forums and verses that fit perfectly into this topic. I was overcome with peace and the desire to serve the Lord stronger through his commandments. There are things in my home to get rid of such as certain spiritual books, movies, music, art etc and I understand the reasoning to rid my life of those things. I have had a very difficult life. I believe there may be the possibility of a generational curse upon my family.(Boy could I talk about this in depth.) With that said it only makes me want to work Harder to follow the word of God. Also, in regards to a difficult life I blame noone but myself for living a life of the flesh. I feel more hope today. More faith. I feel that even though it seems the world doesn't care about me that through your comments I have been uplifted and today feel a bit renewed, if in anyway, through focus and intention.

    Again, thank you sincerely to each person for taking the time to respond! I want you to know that it helped in many ways! Please pray for me and also for my dog who is showing illness. My dog and faith in God are the reasons I am alive today.

    God Bless each of you! Thank You
  • Conchita on Exodus 20:25
    I was raised in the RC tradition, and taught that the 4th Commandment is "Honor thy father and thy mother." Why, in this Bible trivia, is the 4th Commandment "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy?" In the RC tradition, that is the 3rd Commandment. I compared this chapter of the King James version, with the Douay Rheims version, and, both versions seem to state the 4th Commandment as I was taught. I am confused. Please clarify this for me. I was taught the Commandments as follows:

    1. I am the LORD thy God, thou shalt not have strange gods before me.

    2. Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD, thy God in vain.

    3. Remember thou keep holy the sabbath day.

    4. Honor thy father and thy mother.

    5. Thou shalt not kill.

    6. Thou shalt not steel.

    7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.

    8. Thou shalt not bear false witness of thy neighbor.

    9. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors wife.

    10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors goods.
  • Lost 1 on 1 John 3
    verse 20, the way it is described in the commentary says God condemns us if our heart does, I always thought that is meant, the opposite. I have a hard time forgiving myself for backsliding for so long staying away from our Lord and sinning for years knowing it was wrong as i did it but i have since repented and turn completely away from my former live but still struggle with the past. I though this scripture meant that even though my heart condemns me God is greater than my heart and knows all things and knows i've repented and has forgiven me. Self -condemnation is a horrible way to live no joy, no peace but i used to take comfort in that scripture knowing that God had not condemned me even tho my heart does. I've not found a timetable for how long a backslider has before he has no chance to come back, and if I am an apostate why am I under such conviction? I'm in that place where I cannot move stuck in the most miserable of places, am i not accepting forgiveness or can i not get it anymore?
  • Mike on Genesis 1:17
    Genesis 1:17 KJV

    (17) And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

    God sets His 2 greatest commandments in the firmament of Heaven.in our opened, expanded hearing (HEAR, O Israel..) of the Spirit that comes from there. We are to do what He has set/established in the kingdom of God so that others see His Light shine in the darkness of this earth.

    Mark 12:28-31 KJV

    (28) And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?

    (29) And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

    (30) And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

    (31) And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

    Thou are not far from the kingdom of God...

    Mark 12:34 KJV

    (34) And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.

    When we do His commandments, we shall shine as the stars giving His Light upon this dark earth.

    Daniel 12:3 KJV

    (3) And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

    The nations shall come to His light/glory that they see arising upon us...

    Isaiah 60:1-3 KJV

    (1) Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.

    (2) For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

    (3) And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

  • Robert Marino - in Reply on Genesis 10
    Hi Aidan,

    Can you show me 7 years somewhere in the New Testament. I see 3 1/2 years in Revelation. Am I missing something on that? You are correct. 70 weeks were fulfilled. that is how I see it. The word AFTER in verse 26 puts Jesus' death right int he middle of the 70th week in verse 27 because 7 weeks were already fulfilled before the mentioning of the next 62 weeks.
  • Robert Marino - in Reply on Genesis 10
    you:

    Then Matthew 24:15: "the abomination of desolation, spoken by Daniel" arises. Is it referencing Daniel 12:11 or Daniel 9:27, or both? You mentioned that Daniel 9:27 applied to Jesus Who "causes the sacrifices to cease, etc.", so the mention of the 'abomination of desolation' in Matthew 24:15 becomes intriguing.

    Me:

    Yes, abominations is plural in Daniel 9:27, not singular. Can't use that one and stay intellectually honest. I don't have all the answers. I just try to never add or take away from the word of God. And there is that nasty "S" in the original manuscripts in Daniel 9:27.

    What do you think of the eagle symbol the Roman Army had? Could that be the where you see the eagles gather? We take it as literal eagles. But Jesus is going to incinerate the earth which wold cleanse everything. Just a thought I just thought of so as Inigo Montoya in the Princess Bride movie once said to Vizzini, "I don't know your thinkum is what your thinkum is" or something like that. LOL.

    YOU:

    Those in Judea are to 'flee to the mountains, etc.' (Matthew 24:16-20): reference to the Jews. And after this, there will be Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:11). Of course, this Tribulation hasn't happened yet, unless the rest of us missed it altogether. So all these show me that Jesus was applying His prophecies specifically to Israel, with the broader implications to the rest of us."

    Me: Fulfilled in 70 AD with signs as historically written of outside of the Bible. ALL the Christians in Jerusalem escaped when the Roman Army made its last push. 1.1 million unsaved Jews stayed in Jerusalem and were slaughtered, and 90,000 were sold into slavery, some mothers were eating their children to feed their other children. About 2 million were killed leading up to and including this final battle. So about 2/3rds of the Jewish population worldwide was wiped out. Many scholars believe this was the time of Jacob's trouble because percentage-wise way more Jews were killed than the Holocaust and in a much much worse way.
  • Robert Marino - in Reply on Genesis 10
    Good Morning Chris. WE finally got a much-needed all night shower up here in the north.

    I was jsut saying that it would be a day late and a dollar short if the antichrist has already risen to power for an unsaved Jewish person to read what has already been mostly fulfilled in Matthew 24. Remember there are three different greek words in Matthew 24 for the word WORLD. The word oikenume means Roman Empire so the apostles did preach the gospel to the entire Roman Empire by 70 AD. That has been fulfilled. But like I said, I believe there is a double fulfillment with many things in this chapter that we in our time will experience, one of those being preaching the gospel to the whole world.

    I have evangelized many of Jew, and they hate the New Testament. They call the Old Testament, the ONLY Testament. I hit them with "Then why does the Bible Numerics phenomenon underlie the entire text of the New Testament which proves God's authorship?" I don't get an answer. Try that some time when trying to reach them whether converted Khazar jews from southern russia from 800 AD that are the ones who mostly live in Israel today or the more natural Jews, most living in other countries. Pre-trib teachers don't like mentioning that one to their followers.

    get back to you on the other thing you said.
