    Two Second Comings?

    I agree and the Bible makes it clear that THE HOLY SPIRIT will be doing the sealing of the 144,000 the remnant. The scene in Revelation start to shows the Time of Trouble, but in Chapter 7 an angel from the east swiftly flies and tells the four angels to not let the events begin until the remnant are seal first. So they are seal before the Time of Trouble. Dan 12:3; Matt 25:9; Eph 1:13; Rev 6:14-17; 7:1-3; 12:7; 14:4, 14, 15 (This Verse proves that YAHSHUA has not returned. All of HIS angels will return with HIM! This whole Chapter deals with the 144,000 receiving their reward for the work they've done.) These remnant during the Time of Trouble, having THE SPIRIT of Elijah; when he did YAHWEH'S warning of Wrath on IsraEL. The remnant will have power from on HIGH to do exactly the same thing and more. It is the Wrath of THE LAMB! Rev 6:16; 11:5, 6 THE WRATH of YAHWEH is the 7 last plagues and then during the sixth plagues YAHSHUA is coming by the 7th, the earth is in turmoil and YAHSHUA has come. Rev 11:13-15; 16:15, 17-21. Then for a thousand years the saints will be in the city to judge the wicked. 1Co 6:2; Rev 20:4 Finally, the 2nd time the saints will come back with YAHSHUA to execute judgment on the wicked after the thousands years! Jude 1:14; Rev 20:3, 5-7 When the 144,000 are sealed they would have stopped sinning to be sealed by THE HOLY SPIRIT! Their work is to reap the harvest of souls that will come out of the Time of Trouble. Dan 12:3; Rev 7:9-15; 9:4 They will do the final work that THE HOLY SPIRIT had Elijah to do! Praise FATHER, THE SON and THE HOLY SPIRIT FOREVER MORE! Blessings!

    Rachel: You will not get me into a political debate with you. The problem is you want to make it political and you are so bent on trying, hoping that I will say something political. I will NOT! Rant and rave all you want but I turn my eyes upon YAHSHUA. I look into HIS WONDERFUL FACE and things of the earth that you bring, grows strangely dim. In the LIGHT of HIS GLORY and GRACE. Love You!

    Buckle up, buttercups!

    John 7:53–8:11 talks about the woman and though it does not provide the woman's name, I agree that it is Mary Magdalene. YAHSHUA was known to dined with common people that were known as sinners. Mark 2:15 Mary Magdalene was constantly known to be around YAHSHUA and it was she that anointed his feet at the supper of Simon. John 11:2 My belief and understanding the historical thought of the day is how men treated a known prostitute. The proof of that is also in the Bible. The men present at the dinner talked about her like she isn't even there. She was in spite of their action for one reason, to show her love for YAHSHUA with tears. Why would she do this because she was that unknown woman of ill repute. She had become a harlot, but YAHSHUA saved her. All evidence points to her as this woman. Now, you made not believe that it was her, but I do. That's my choice and I believe that she, Mary Magdalene left as her accusers were gone and she stopped prostituting and changed her life. I also believe that the Bible writers set it up to show the times but provided through the Scriptures and THE HOLY SPIRIT that it was her. Blessings!

    Just couple days ago, I was looking again at my notes on the 144,000. Wow! The symbolism in those verses is taken from many different OT verses, and mostly from Sanctuary/Feast imagery. What has me stumped is the description of the 144,000 as "firstfruits". The "firstfruits" were not always "the best" of the harvest. They were just "first". So whom does Christ present FIRST to His Father? That would be the saints He resurrected just shortly after His own resurrection. Wouldn't they be "the firstfruits" ? Does the Bible present all of "the saved" as one "harvest" - or - is there more than one "harvest" ? The Feasts present three - Spring (barley), Summer (wheat), Fall (fruits). They fit well with 1. Christ's ascension, 2. the Second Coming and 3. the 8th millennium harvest Jesus said, "the harvest is the end of the age". Is "the age" just 6000 years, or is there another "age" after that? At the Glorious Return, the resurrected go "first" - right? So they would be the "firstfruits" (first harvested)? But Jesus is called "the firstfruits of them that slept". That lumps all those who have died into one harvest. It's just impossible to pin it down. Though it is interesting to study and speculate.

    Joe, you made a good collection of the texts about judgments. Thanks. The responses show that opinions/interpretations differ widely. And my scenario wasn't even there. lol Let me see if I understand your scenario. 1. Believers "judged" - in the person of Christ, perhaps hours before His return to remove them from earth. 2. Fully committed/sanctified believers removed to the New Jerusalem, for "the wedding". (includes resurrected and living) 3. Less fully committed/sanctified believers left on the earth? 4. Wicked (knowingly rejected the LORD or His will) resurrected, face Christ, judged, destroyed directly/indirectly as last plagues poured out. This leaves only those not fully committed/sanctified. They survive the last plagues (?miraculously?) 5. Time passes (unspecified short length of time) 6. Christ returns to earth with His bride, now made "kings and priests". 7. Those believers not fully committed/sanctified (some resurrected/some still living at SC) spend 1000 years (7th millennium) learning and maturing. I would assume some continue on to "maturity", and others slip back into rebellion, just in time for the resurrection at the 8th millennium. 8. At 8th millennium, "the rest of the dead" are resurrected. (These are people who were not able to choose during their lifetimes, due to ignorance, immaturity, disability.) They will be governed and educated by "the priests and kings" of God. They will also be tempted/deceived by Satan and his angels and by those who slipped back into rebellion during the 7th millennium. 9. Those of "the rest" who do not choose to serve Christ, along with those who slipped back during the 7th millennium, now rebel against Him, coming up as the Gog/Magog army. 10. They are destroyed by "fire of God". QUESTIONS: Do I understand your scenario about right? In your scenario, at what point is the earth healed/restored? Because the 7 last plagues pretty much wipe out the whole planet as we know it today. Or do you still believe the last bowl plagues only effect the land area promised to the Seed of Abraham? In your scenario, does the LORD especially preserve those not fully committed/sanctified through the last plagues? Is that why there are survivors?
  13. The people who survive this period of extreme deception and confusion are certainly not babes in the truth. Rather, they are grown-up, adult believers. They are models of perfection and Christian maturity. They have had their faculties trained by practice to distinguish good from evil. Though their faith is severely tried, they do not let […] The post What God Is Waiting For (18:3) appeared first on Jon Paulien's Blog. View the full article

    Trivia

    5 Things You Didn't Know About The Gettysburg Address_2 On November 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address at the dedication of a military cemetery at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Here are 5 surprising facts you probably didn’t know about the Gettysburg Address... Lincoln Did Not Make the Keynote Speech Edward Everett, a famous orator from Massachusetts, was the keynote speaker at the dedication ceremony for the cemetery. He spoke for two hours, talking about all the exploits of the Union Army at Gettysburg and alluding to Greek History. After he heard Lincoln’s speech, he wrote to the president afterward, saying that Lincoln had done more in two minutes than his own speech of two hours. Lincoln’s Speech Only Lasted About Two Minutes Lincoln’s speech was just 10 sentences long. In contrast to Everett’s hours-long address, Lincoln spoke for just two minutes. A popular myth tells of President Lincoln hastily jotting down his 270-word speech on the back of an envelope during the train ride from Washington to Gettysburg. In truth, Lincoln put a great deal of planning into his remarks. He began writing the speech the night before he left and completed it after his arrival in Pennsylvania. No one knew at the time that Lincoln’s short speech would go down in history as one of the most memorable speeches of all the presidents. Lincoln Wrote Every Word of The Gettysburg Address While subsequent presidents have all enjoyed significant assistance from speechwriters in crafting their messages, President Lincoln took a more hands-on approach and is one of the few presidents in U.S. history to have written the entirety of his speeches and remarks. No Photo Was Taken of Lincoln Addressing the Crowd Although a photo of Lincoln moving through the crowd exists, photographers did not capture his photo while he was speaking. This is because what became known as the Gettysburg Address was only about two minutes long. The amount of time photographers of the day needed to set up their cameras took longer than the speech itself. Only Five Copies of the Gettysburg Address Are Known to Exist Lincoln gave his two copies of the Gettysburg Address to his secretaries, John Hay and John Nicolay, and they are in the possession of the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. A third copy was given to Edward Everett and resides at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library. The fourth is in the Lincoln bedroom at the White House, and the fifth is at Cornell University.

    3ABN Round 2

    Just my opinion, but I believe God puts relationship above doctrine. The main doctrines of scripture in my opinion are: 1. "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life"; and 2. "Love the Lord Thy God with your whole heart, and love Thy neighbor as thyself." If we firmly hold on to these doctrines out of faith in and love for our Creator, I believe that Jesus will clear up any incorrect doctrines we have; and we will be happy to accept them. Example - When Jesus explains the Sabbath to the Sunday keepers that are in the Kingdom, those Sunday keepers will gladly become Sabbath Keepers.

    I believe this happens when we are changed from mortal to immortal; from corruptible to incorruptible when Jesus comes FOR His saints. Until then, I believe we will be predisposed to sin. Of course, being predisposed to sin doesn't mean we "have to" sin. Under the influence of the latter rain, sin becomes a choice rather than an inevitability. After we receive the Holy Spirit, we are no longer slaves to sin. Even if we do become sinless, I don't know if we will realize we are sinless. When I meditate on the righteousness of God and His Son, it is only by faith that I can believe that He would love something like me. (Of course, I'm still far from sinless. 😔

    3ABN Round 2

    This has been my observation as well - sincere believers who studiously search the scriptures while praying for illumination from the Holy Spirit, and yet coming to irreconcilable differing conclusions. I can only surmise that either (a) the Holy Spirit isn't really leading; or (b) the Holy Spirit doesn't really care about the fine points of doctrine. After all, God sees the end from the beginning. If diet really was to be a major theological issue, why did He give Peter the vision ordering him to eat "unclean" foods? and why did He let Paul write 1 Tim 4:3-5 without making it clear that the OT dietary laws trumped what Paul wrote? If the Sabbath really were to be a final "end-times" test, why did He let Paul write Romans 14:5 and Colossians 2:16 without inspiring Paul to add a footnote about the weekly Sabbath? Or at the very least then, why doesn't the Holy Spirit lead all sincere followers into a similar understanding of these texts?

    Days of Praise

    November 19, 2019 Problems, Problems, Problems “And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.” (Psalm 55:6) The 55th Psalm is a psalm of “complaint” (v. 2) by David and gives an insight into his thought process as he tried to deal with the great problems and burdens that were overwhelming him. His first instinct was to run away from them, flying like a dove far off into the wilderness. The prophet Jonah (whose name means “dove”) tried that strategy years later, only to encounter even worse problems (Jonah 1:3, 15). One does not solve problems by fleeing from them. Then, David decided to berate those who were causing him trouble and to complain about them to the Lord. “Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice” (Psalm 55:17). The words “pray, and cry aloud” here actually mean “complain and mourn.” “Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues” (v. 9). “Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell” (v. 15). His burdens were all the heavier because those whom he had trusted as friends and colleagues were now using deceit and guile against him (vv. 11-14), and the injustice of it all was almost more than he could endure. But complaints and imprecations were also unsatisfying: “Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord” (Romans 12:19). Finally, the Lord gave him an answer, and David found the rest for which he had been so fretfully searching. Here it is: “Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved” (Psalm 55:22). The last phrase of the psalm is “but I will trust in thee” (v. 23). The way to deal with burdens and problems is not to flee from them or to fret about them but to turn them over to the Lord: “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (1 Peter 5:7). HMM
