  • Steve Lynch for verse 2
    The earth was created perfect but it became void an without form. and the reason was because of satan's rebellion against god. and he drew in a third of god's children by his diseption. so what was once perfectly made then became void and without form. so god destroyed that earth age. we were all in our spiritual bodies then before god destroyed the first earth age. so then god brought forth the second earth age that we are living in now. but sin came into this earth age and it grieve god that he had made man in the flesh. but wasn't willing for man in the flesh to do that he himself wouldn't do us. so he was manifested in the flesh as jesus christ. and he gave his life on the cross for all of mankind. so now we have a choice to accept him as our lord an saviour an be redeemed of our sins by asking for his forgiveness. god was not willing that anyone would perish. so he sheds his grace on us all through jesus giving his life on the cross at calvary.

    Slow down Mike. You are taking up all the comment section. Let others get a word in now and then. But I got this to say to you, you have a zeal for the word. God Bless you.

    The Word Brings Salvation

    1Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. 2For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. 3For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. 4For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth

    Luke 11:52

    "Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered."
  • 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.
  • Genesis 1:22 KJV And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

    Fill the waters in the seas.that is, fill the praise of God before all of the nations (seas) of the world. The waters are people, languages, etc. The earth shall be filled with knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.

    Isaiah 11:9-10 KJV They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. (10) And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

    Let fowl multiply in the earth.that is, words of His praise will be multiplied before all of the nations of this world. Praise the LORD, all you nationspraise Him all you people. We are to praise Him for His mercy, kindness and the revealing of His Truth.

    Psalms 117:1-2 KJV O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people. (2) For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.

    I will confess/praise/thank Him among the nations (gentiles) and sing unto His name. Let fowl multiply in the earththat is, words/songs of God's praise and thanksgiving to Him among all nations of this world. The words of His praise multiply and fly through the air for the nations to hear. We, His people, are to abound with His praiseglorifying God before all nations.

    Romans 15:8 Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:(9) And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name.(10) And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people.(11) And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people.
  • Genesis 1:20 KJV And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

    The waters in verse 20 speak of the living waters of the Spirit that bring forth abundantly the moving creature that has life.

    This speaks of the joy that comes abundantly after the hearing of the Word of God as spoken in the living waters of the Spirit.

    Many will receive the Word with joy. The "moving creature" = "sherets" (swarm) which comes from "sharats" which means "to wriggle". To "wriggle" means "twist and turn with quick writhing movements." We "dance" so to speak with joy within our hearts after the hearing of His Word spoken from Heaven in the Spirit...the living waters.

    Abundant joy comes. Our mourning turns into "dancing" (Hebrew: machol which comes from "chuwl" which means "to twist or whirl (in a circular or spiral manner)". Many will "wriggle" with joy.

    Psalms 30:11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

    The "fowls" that fly above the earth are our words of praise and thanksgiving to Him above when we hear His knowledge as spoken in our opened hearing of Heaven (in the open firmament of Heaven).

    We sing praise unto Him as birds/words of praise "fly" above the earth.

    (12) To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

    In the hearing of His Word of Truththe living River of the Spirit of God, everything that lives and moves. that is, rejoices shall live. Their souls shall live as they rejoice.

    Ezekiel 47:9 And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh.
  • 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.
  • The lights (the 2 greatest commandments) in the firmament of the Heaven (the expansion of the hearing of Heaven) are for signs, seasons, days and years.

    For days and years..they will prolong our days upon this earth.

    Deuteronomy 6:2 That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.

    For length of days and long life (literally, years of life) the doing of His commandments do add unto us.

    Proverbs 3:1 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:

    (2) For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.

    They shall multiply our daysas the days of Heaven upon the earth:

    Deuteronomy 11:21 That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.22 For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;

    The doing of His commandments shall give us fruitful seasons

    Leviticus 26:3 If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them;

    (4) Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.

    They are for signs.you shall bind them for a sign upon your handremembering to do them always.

    Deuteronomy 6:8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.

    In doing so, we shall shine as the stars turning many to His righteousness.

    We shall be His many infallible signs to this dark world that Jesus is truly alive as we live.

    Acts 1:3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:
  • Without Jesus we're nothing.
  • Chris for verse 10
    Ras, the Hebrew word for 'Earth' is 'ha.'a.retz'. And this is translated as earth or land, so it can mean 'dry land' as you mentioned, or can even apply to this planet where the same word is used for it. But no Scripture gives any proof that the Earth is 'flat-ish'. I would be interested if you can provide me one.
  • Ras Merkabah for verse 10
    So Genesis 1:10 settles it. Earth is the dry land gathered among the water (Seas). So this Planet is NOT Earth, but the dry land is. This means Earth is "flat-ish" NOT spherical, nor globular. I wonder what is the name God gives to the WHOLE Planet then?
  • Stanjett
    Come on people, we have all saw earth from the space station. It's round. The moon is round, Mars is round all the planets are round. The sun is also round.
  • Man is spirit, soul, and body. Earth is land and sea and everything else that makes up the earth.
  • Chris for verse 10

  • The 4th day is about the government of God upon us.the kingdom/reign of God. We are to fear God who is One and keep His commandments.

    God made 2 great lights.

    God set the 2 lights in the firmament (the opened hearing ear) of Heaven. Hear, O Israel.

    The greater light is the first and greatest commandment to rule the children of the Day who are to love God with all of their heart, soul, mind and strength.

    The second, lesser light is like the first. to love our neighbor as ourselves. When we have love for one another, all people in this dark world shall know we are His disciples (John 13:35). We shall shine as the stars in the darkness of this world. We are to love even our enemies who hate us. In doing so, there is rule over those who are of the night in the darkness of their minds as we let God avenge us (Romans 12:19) .

    Mark 12:29-31 KJV

    (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.

    He made the stars also.as we shall shine as lights/luminaries in the darkness of this world in the doing of His 2 greatest commandments. And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth.

    Philippians 2:14-16 KJV

    (14) Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

    (15) That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

    Holding forth the Word/Saying of Life: that God is Light.

    (16) Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

    to be continued...
  • The "dry" land is the meek heart dried up the waters of evil speaking. Happy are the "poor in spirit"that is, poor in breath as they will be swift to hear His opened mouth teaching and slow to speak.poor in words.

    Matthew 5:2-3 KJV

    (2) And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

    (3) Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    The good ground.the honest and good heartshall hear the Word and keep it and bring forth the fruit of righteousness towards His teaching of the Word of God.



    Luke 8:15-16 KJV

    (15) But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

    The earth shall bring forth "grass"that is, peace within the heart. The fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace. They will act in the wisdom that descends from above and not in that earthly, devilish wisdom that is from below the Heaven.



    James 3:18 KJV

    (18) And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

    The herb yielding seed after his kind is faith in what they hear Him saying. There are different degrees of faith. The fruit tree yielding fruit whose seed is in itself is the kingdom of God within us that can grow into a great tree. We are to be His planting of the trees of His righteousness.



    Luke 13:18-19 KJV

    (18) Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it?

    (19) It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.

    The seed within us is able to save our souls but we must be "dry" within the heart of all superfluity of naughtiness that overflows the heart in words. We must be doers of His Word.

    James 1:21 KJV

    (21) Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
  • Genesis 1:10 KJV(10) And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

    God called the "dry" land Earth as the meek shall inherit the earth. The dry, meek heart shall be dried of the waters of strife as they will humbly hear the opening up of His mouth that will teach us. He will open up the Scriptures to our hearing ears and we are to take heed on how we hear for we shall be given more.

    Matthew 5:2 KJV

    (2) And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

    Happy are the meek for they shall inherit the Earth as they shall hear HIs teaching humbly. The "dry" heart shall be dried of all evil and evil speaking....the waters of strife. God called the dry land "Earth" for the meek shall inherit the earth.

    Matthew 5:5 KJV

    (5) Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

    But the gathering of the waters are people who will resist what they hear and don't understand as the "raging waves of the sea" foaming out their own shame as they speak a multiple amount/superfluity of evil words in their envy and strife. The wicked shall not understand Him as the "blackness of darkness" is reserved for them.

    Jude 1:13 KJV

    (13) Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.

    The wicked are like the troubled sea when it cannot rest whose waters cast up mire and dirt (as they will speak multiple evil words in their contention of His teaching). There is no peace to the wicked.

    Isaiah 57:18-21 KJV

    (18) I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners.

    (19) I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the LORD; and I will heal him.

    (20) But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.

    (21) There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.
  • Bob Hilt for verse 10
    Mike that is very well written. I know we are limited to how much we can write on this forum and thought that I would add this to those wonderful thoughts you posted.

    Revelation 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. a beast rise up out of the sea

    Revelation Chapter 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many WATERS waters:

    14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him [are] called, and chosen, and faithful.

    15 And he saith unto me, The WATERS waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

    The WATERS waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
  • Hi Bob.

    Peace.

    Thank you for reading and your input. Much appreciated! The limited available space to write in is at least helping me to be more concise. Thanks!
  • Genesis 1:9 KJV(9) And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

    The Word of God spoken in truth causes people to either resist in their wrath what is being said with the "superfluity of naughtiness" or they "dry" up the waters of strife upon their hearts and humble themselves to the hearing of it. The meek shall inherit the earth as God called the "dry" Earth

    The "waters" of people under the Heaven are the unbelievers of His Word as they gather together against it. They will rage/roar against it as the churning of the angry seas. While the "dry" heart will be swift to hear His Word and will be slow to speak and slow to wrath.

    James 1:19-21 KJV

    (19) Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

    (20) For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.

    The "dry" is the meekness of the heart that has put away the waters of strife towards what they hear. The "dry" appears.

    (21) Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

    The "sea" and all that is in them are the people who rage and are gathered together against His Christ as illustrated in Acts 4. He has made Heaven and earth and the sea and all that is in them:

    Acts 4:24-27 KJV

    (24) And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:

    (25) Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?

    (26) The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.

    (27) For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,
  • Genesis 1:7 KJV

    (7) And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

    God divided the waters (people) which were under the firmament (the unbelievers) from the waters (people) which were above the firmament (the believers).

    Jesus said He was from above while those who did not believe Him were from beneath.

    John 8:23-24 KJV

    (23) And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

    (24) I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

    As God divided the waters, we also must not be unequally yoked together (those who are above with those from under the firmament) with the unbelievers of the Word of Truth that we hear spoken from above. The firmament or expanse is the opening up of our ears to the hearing of the knowledge of God spoken from Heaven. Belief/faith comes from hearing and hearing from the Word of God.

    2 Corinthians 6:14-15 KJV

    (14) Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

    (15) And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

    The waters were divided as God calls us to come out from among the unbelievers of the Word of Truth and be separate from them. What communion does light have with those of are of the darkness?

    2 Corinthians 6:17-18 KJV

    (17) Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

    (18) And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
  • Genesis 1:6 KJV

    (6) And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

    The "firmament" or "expanse" is a metaphor about the opening of the hearing ear and the "waters" are people (Revelation 17:15).

    The hearing of the Word of Truth from Heaven among many people divides them: the believers from the unbelievers.

    Even the word for "ear" in Hebrew (ozen) means "broadness, to expand".

    Job 36:10 KJV

    (10) He openeth also their ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity.

    God opens up our ears to His knowledge that is sent from Heaven via the Spirit. The "firmament" is called "Heaven" for what we hear is from there. Jesus said often: he that has an ear, let him hear

    Revelation 3:6 KJV

    (6) He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

    The good news is reported unto us with Holy Spirit is sent down from Heaven

    1 Peter 1:12 KJV

    (12) Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

    Jesus healed the deaf man by looking into Heaven as He opened up his ears. The "firmament" or expanse is the opening up of our ears to God's knowledge from Heaven.

    Mark 7:33-34 KJV

    (33) And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue;

    (34) And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened.

    Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word/Saying of God who said "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters." The "waters" above the Heaven believe upon what they hear while those waters under do not believe. The "firmament" is firm and supports the waters above as they believe in what they hear.
  • Mishael for verse 3
    Verse 20-21 are saying the Lord is leading and we are to follow Him. He will help us.

    By staying close to Him, he will build you up on your most holy faith. Your understanding of his wisdom will abound and be a treasury.
  • Mary Singletary for verse 3
    I would like to know how do you regain your Church after someone has come in and after 3 short years has run the founders of the Churches Family off and almost all the older congregation off that has been there from day one the founders passed with in the last 5-6 years This man was brought in to Pastor the Church but has completely turned it upside down and taken it over..These people have no one to ask how they can get it back..All they can do is pray and are so afraid that he will sell it.. Thank you
  • Chris for verse 3
    Sadly, this type of behaviour has been known to happen & leads to many of the congregation leaving the Church looking for somewhere else to worship. What happened to the Elders who appointed this man to lead the fellowship? You mentioned the 'founders' of the Church, but every Bible-based Church has to have elders that govern & administer the Church's affairs. They are primarily responsible for who leads, teaches & shepherds the flock. If only the one man is the Elder cum Pastor, then the Church is subject to his direction only & is not operating as Christ intended His Church to be. Is there any possibility for the concerned members to approach the man to discuss this matter & alert him to the biblical standards? However, ultimately only God can change his attitude & direction, or else, members need to look elsewhere to worship.
  • Genesis 1:5 KJV

    (5) And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

    God called the light "Day". He calls those who hear His voice and are awake to the doing of His righteousness (responding to His dawning Light in the heart with deeds of light..."and there was light") at the hearing of His knowledge.the "Day".. as they will go on to ever increasing understanding of His knowledge.

    Those who hear His voice (His knowledge) and are forgetful of His commandments and walk in the deeds of darkness are the children of the Night as they still will reside in darkness (not knowing) and will not enter in to understand.

    1 Thessalonians 5:5 KJV

    (5) Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

    1 Thessalonians 5:8 KJV

    (8) But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

    "And the evening and the morning, Day 1" speaks of the dawning (morning)of His Light within our very own hearts that were once darkened (evening). It progressively gets lighter and lighter with each day until there is no more darkness within the heart. The light shines in a dark place(the evening with in the heart) until the day dawn (morning) and the day star (morning star) arises in our hearts until the full light of the Day.

    2 Peter 1:19-20 KJV

    (19) We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

    (20) Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

    The Light of God shines more and more unto the perfect Day where there will be no more darkness within the heart as it will be noon.

    QUESTION

    Is the time of the Tribulation a 7 year period of time (from Daniel)?

    I have heard the time of the Tribulation to be the time of Jacob's Trouble" (Jeremiah 30:7)
  • Jesse for verse 3
    John,

    The tribulation period is a seven year period. To be more technical, the entire seven year period is known as the tribulation period, and the last 3 1/2 years is known as the Great Tribulation.

    This last 3 1/2 years would be the time of Jacob's trouble as spoken of in Jeremiah 30:7. We see at the end of Verse 7 that it says "but he shall be saved out of it." This is referring to Judah and Israel. They will be spared from those last 3 1/2 years. These will be the 144,000 Jews who are told to flee into the mountains, probably the rock city of Petra. God will keep them from being harmed.
