    LUKE 4:4 AND --- JESUS --- ANSWERED HIM SAYING IT IS WRITTEN THAT MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE BUT BY --- EVERY WORD --- OF GOD

    "I am thy fellow-servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus." Isaiah 8:20 says, "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them." If a man speaks against the Truth, and if he deny that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh, he is of antichrist.

    Love the site KJBO. Another great resource for me has been the teaching of the book of Revelation series by Pastor. In his message 'The Man on the White Horse' he gives many insights concerning Jesus return without retreat and also concerning the marriage supper of the lamb. It isn't what I have always been taught, but I am very glad for the truth I have learned.

    Good Steve- Look now at Rev 12:17- Here are they who KEEP the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus- explained in 19:10- which is the spirit of prophecy. This means that those who keep His commandments will be explained prophecy by His Spirit. IF we love Him keep His commandments AND He will pray the FATHER and He will send.... it's about obedience and resisting SIN which is death

    REVELATION 19:10 AND I FELL AT HIS FEET TO WORSHIP TO WORSHIP HIM AND HE SAID UNTO ME SEE THOU DO IT NOT I AM THY FELLOWSERVANT AND OF THY BRETHREN THAT HAVE THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS WORSHIP GOD FOR THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS IS THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY 1 JOHN 2:29 IF YOU KNOW THAT HE IS RIGHTEOUS YOU KNOW THAT EVERYONE THAT DOETH RIGHTEOUSNESS --- IS BORN OF HIM ---

    Christ returns as a warrior at the 7th trump. Scripture also says with fire and hail stones up to 180 lbs will be falling and Satans head with be crushed. It's some thing to think about when the peacefully sweet talking false messiah who can perform supernatural tricks gets here and the world loves him. wait for the true Christ Don't be taken from the field or from the house-by lies.
