    Mountains and Earth shall pass away but God's words will stay. Jesus words will not return to him void. Lets prepare ourselves for the second coming of Jesus and praise him and worship him for he is worthy. If you will be found in the church serving Jesus you will be saved Jesus will come to take back his church as a bride in heaven amen
  • Mike
    I can tell you the exact day and hour the messiah will return. Three and a half days after the two witnesses are killed. The part that confuses most people is the fact that there are 2 resurrections. The first occurs after the 2 witnesses are killed but after the 1000 year millennium and satan becomes loosened after a little season this is the day and hour no man knows or the second resurrection..
  • James Peprah
    The prophectic message at Revelation 12 links what Jesus Christ said in Matthew.
  • A disciple
    Voice of love speak; You are right! I found the same as you, once I could freely read the Scriptures for myself and found that ALL the words of the Prophets and Apostles, and the Lord Jesus Himself, ONLY say just that! If we are already used to the Narrow Way walking with Jesus every day, then we won't be offended or misled when the whole world collapses under its own rebellion and confusion!
