  • I don't know what all this means, but I am writing because this morning I had a dream with a boiling pot. I at first thought is was the brazen sea, but later in the day during prayer, I saw this again more clearly...it was a fire under a pot. I could see the flames licking up the side of the pot. So, I began to search out an understanding from scripture. Today is 8/8/2013

    It is certain that bible prophecys are being fulfilled...it's the LORD who does it, as it is said that the "earth is reserved for fire" in the end of days...turn from your wicked ways and follow God's commands i.e the PASSOVER...It is the only way of salvation....
  • Matthew_Witness for verse 13
    Jeremiah saw a seething-pot (Can you see this pot today in the North? boiling- North Korea The mouth or face of the furnace or hearth, was toward the north; from whence the fire and fuel were to come. The northern powers shall unite. The whole counsel of God must be declared. The fear of God is the best remedy against the fear of man. Better to have all men our enemies than God our enemy; those who are sure they have God with them, need not, ought not to fear, whoever is against them. Let us pray that we may be willing to give up personal interests, and that nothing may move us from our duty.amen
