Discussion for Mark 13

  • Word
    Those taught rapture the first dead, spiritually dead, for they will run to the first supernatural being, entity that can bring lightning down performing things that no man has seen before and they say we are a widow no longer our husband is home. Take heed let no man deceive you. All change at the 7th trump, Christ comes destruction hail stones fire. Satan comes to deceive the world at the 6th.

    Barbara B Asleep As in 1st Thess 4:13 those asleep meaning dead they rose just as Christ did and it goes on to say will return at the 7th trump and we will meet them in the cloud/ crowd. Paul uses street Greek cloud is crowd as used in Hebrews 12 Paul was speaking of a pack of people running a race. But we will all change at the 7th trump. Air in that chapter spiritual body,breath of life. Not up!

    correction - concerning my comment about it being 70 yrs. before Jesus allowed the temple to be destroyed. It was only from ca. 30 A.D, to 70 A.D. which is not 70 yrs.
