    Israel is not behaving in its best interests against Iran. Instead of brokering peace, they welcome evil. Let's not forget Iran takes part in the sacking of Israel ( Ezekiel 38:7), so any offensive can be costly.

    Headlines:

    *Israel is ready to strike Iran, Defense Minister Benny Gantz said Thursday, as tensions between the two countries continue to mount.

    *Israel warns Tehran is only '10 weeks away' from acquiring weapons-grade materials

    For the past 40 years Israel has been repeating this mantra of crying wolf.
  • Frank Stephenson - in Reply on Luke 21
    If we study the book of Daniel and Revelation also especially Deuteronomy 28 we will have to come to the only conclusion that the State of Israel is not the descendants of Ancient Israel. The Bible does not in the least support their claim. So who are these people that are being propped up by the West in particular the USA?

    I read the guidelines for comments and agree with them, however one important point is missing honesty/truth.

    I hope my comments are taken seriously and not dismissed as unimportant because I don't believe that that state is not of God.

    I believe Israel of the Bible is the same Israel today.

    7/29/2021 I'm just curious- When Jesus talked about all those scary things happening in the end days, was He talking about those things happening nowadays (20th/21st Century) or was He talking about those things happening sometime closer to after He was crucified/resurrected/ascended???

    I always thought that Luke 21 was for future readers (us) but some of those things already happened years ago.

    The world as we know it, is sliding down on a greased pole into hell.

    How much of Luke 21 is directed towards the believers that lived thousands of years ago and how much of it is directed towards us living in the here and now?????

    Toxic,

    Many believe in the seven years at the end times. Those seven years are taken from the seventy-week prophecy given to Daniel. My advice is to study.

    .

    Daniel 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

    Seven weeks + threescore and two weeks = 69 weeks this is when Messiah (Jesus) first comes, when He is baptized. The next verse tells us the Messiah is cut off (crucified) after 62 weeks, this was when the restoration and repairing of the walls, streets, and gates of the city of Jerusalem by Ezra and Nehemiah ( Nehemiah 2:8-17; 4:17). Troublous times when their enemies tried to stop the building ( Nehemiah 4:7) the first 7 weeks. We know Jesus' ministry was 3.5 years.

    This is 3.5 years past 69 weeks so that puts Jesus' crucifixion in the middle of the seventieth week.

    I posted a 3-part post on this a few weeks past may you can pull it up and may it help you study this. Not all of Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21, what Jesus is saying is about end times.

    Jesus did cover part about end times but some was telling His Apostles which we see in Mark there were only four, what they were going to have to face before the destruction of the temple. What Jesus said at first before they ask Him, not one stone would be left on top of another.

    There was much of what Jesus said happened before the temple was destroyed, Wars, earthquakes, famines, false prophets, check out Simon in Acts 8, and there were more. The apostles were put in prison, beaten, and killed.

    The main fact, if sixty-nine and one-half weeks is shown in scripture that has already past, you cannot put a full week at end times.

    Toxic,

    Number one and number three in my previous post should both say three and one-half years. This has happened to me before where I've typed in the correct number but when I hit the submit button, it changes what I typed. But anyway, this seven year period is divided into two three and a half year periods. The entire seven years is known as the tribulation period. The last three and a half years are known as the Great Tribulation.

    HI Toxic.

    I personally keep my eyes on Israel as a time peace. and the Apostasy going on and decay spiritually world wide. I don't associate none of these viruses with anything in Revelation. But I see a condition of peoples heart looking similar to the heart of those during the times of Noah. During these troubling times it has no effect on the Lost. I'M NOT SAYING WE ENTERED THOSE DAYS TO COME. Let me make that clear! But what I am saying their hearts is already in this condition.

    Mathews 24:38. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark.

    Noah preached 120 years while building the ark and all he could get saved out of that world was 8 souls. they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, Going on about everyday life like it is nothing happening' You would think this virus would bring fear upon people and make them consider their ways and turn to God. However a lot has been manifested during this pandemic. you sort of see a sifting going on.

    And that's in the Church!! The world is carrying on the way the world does, We commit fornication by bringing the world into the the Church and leave off worshipping in truth and in Spirit and start worshipping the work of our own hands! Our self created views and join to anyone that believe on them as well. Noah never left off building neither shall we, Can you imagine the mockery he endured?!!

    And that is why you see we're under so much attack when getting the Gospel out.

    GOD BLESS.

    S Spencer Something interesting about noahs time, can you imagine how many people were mocking him and thought he was nuts for telling them its going to rain and flood they must have thought he was crazy. The reason is because before that time it never rained on the face of the earth. Just things I think about also the word of God Says God closed the Ark and I'll bet when Crap hit the fan nobody could open it, I think the people were so wicked that if they would have gotten on the ark Noahs family would have been history.

    Luke 21 v 8

    Sounds to me like these people are claiming the deity of Christ and his immediate return .

    So common today , yet we are warned of them by Jesus .
  • BSP on Luke 21
    In verses 29-31 the disciples were instructed to stop and look at the fig tree, notice the buds, and discern that summer was near. Today we must take notice of the events and conditions taking places around us and discern that soon Jesus will return and take action.

    Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

    (19) Woe unto them.-Better, alas for them, or woe for them. The tone is that of pity rather than denunciation. The hardships of a hurried flight would press most heavily on those who were encumbered with infant children, or were expecting childbirth. The same tenderness of sympathy shows itself in the words spoken to the daughters of Jerusalem in Luke 23:28-29. Perhaps the words point to the darker horrors of the siege, when mothers were driven, in the frenzy of starvation, to feed on their infants' flesh.

    You can open Google, type out your verse you want to study, type 'Commentary' after it, and Google will pull up the comments of Bible scholars.

    Luke 21 . 7,8

    Jesus version of the end times

    V 7 , 8 take heed that test be not deceived : many shall come in my name , saying IAM , and the time draweth near : go ye not therefore after them .
  • Thaddous g on Luke 21:34
    Many Christians get distracted with the cares of the life we live now. Distracted by our finances or our business or loving golfing or some pleasure of ours to the point where we want to do nothing for the kingdom of God. Our Lord warns to keep him as our focal point, and not to be drunk or take more than what is necessary in this life into our hearts. He promised to provide all our needs, so if we just learn to rest IN HIM, we will never be caught off our Christian watch. In these end times, we have got to put our complete focus on HIM.
  • Steven Spencer - in Reply on Luke 21:34
    i agree thadeus, this world especially in these times its easy to get distracted. we need that mind set throughout the week, and we need people like that in our circle to urge one another to stay grounded.
  • Jeanne Ray on Luke 21
    Does the Bible, say after Israel was made of state in 1948, that the generation of that year shall not pass away before the returning of Christ?
  • Chris - in Reply on Luke 21
    In Luke 21:32, the word generation (Greek: genea), can apply to a 'generation, race or family'. I don't believe that Jesus was speaking about a generation, as of forty years from the establishment of the State of Israel.

    After His description of the manifold troubles that will come upon the Earth during the Great Tribulation & the dissolving of the Earth & skies, He says that only after all these things must come to pass, will this present generation (or, race) of mankind (particularly of Israel) finally end. But in the New Heavens & New Earth, only the redeemed of the Lord will inhabit it & where there will be no existence of sin at all, as all that have not repented & turned to the Lord will be consigned to the Lake of Fire (Revelation chapters 20 & 21).

  • Leland on Luke 21:32
    What is a heretic? A pastor is saying that those who left his church are heretics and have instructed his congregation to have no more communication with them and to no longer associate with them. He has even told children to leave their parents and divide away from them as the parents. Those people were saved before attending and are now attending a closer Bile Baptist Church which teaches the Bible doctrine and salivation.
  • Rob - in Reply on Luke 21:32
    A heretic is some one that refuses sound doctrine and teaches something else .

    They can be admonished but resistance proves they are self condemned.

    There is so much heretical teachings more than ever .

    Only one truth and that is Jesus .

    Jesus said clearly beware of false teachers .

    they will be the majority!

    Matthew 24. Luke 21 ,

    All the apostles warned as well .

    Stick close to the word of God ,

    Jesus said my sheep hear my voice and they follow me . They will not follow a stranger , Jesus is our shepherd and protects his sheep , even laid down his life for his sheep !

    I'm blessed and can say he has delivered me from so much evil in my life ! Amen !
  • Leland on Luke 21:32
    Can a pastor convicted of embezzlement and adultery and served prison for these of fences still be a pastor?
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Luke 21:32
    Hello Leland,

    Seeing your comment I just feel to post this. If a person has truly been "born again" and given their lives to the Lord. Repenting of all the things they have done in the past and living a new life for the Will of God. I believe anyone can become a servant of the Lord, or "Pastor", showing that no matter what someone has done there is always hope for them. Proving Jesus Christ is waiting with open arms for everyone.

    As this may help other people, who feel guilty, in showing them how great the love of God truly is. As we look at the Apostle Paul. Who actually targeted followers of Christ to persecute and martyr them before his conversion.

    Now if the person is not genuinely converted and serving the Lord. Still being into those past things. Steer clear of them.

    Hope that helps some.
