    When "Michael" stands up for His people, He will not for any reason be thinking of taking office in the white house as US president. That is pure fabrication. In stead of countering with how you are ever-so wise, and I am not because I disagree with you; how bout we skip the quotes and get into Scripture alone for this? Your theories here not only fail the test, they are just too far-fetched for anyone to take seriously.

    HCH, time after time, you have been demonstrated to be wrong. It is clear that you have a vivid imagination. Sooner or later, you will be correct in something. I do not doubt that at all. On occasion you will make some kind of prediction that is simply common sense. It will happen. But, that will not demonstrate that you were correct as to the Bible predicting that event. You can be correct in the event and wrong as to the Bible predicting it. You will be wrong as to that. It is clear that your predictions do not come from God. You have a vivid imagination.

    "Christians Should Be Ashamed To Use The Term Social Justice"

    It seems that many in the SDA church are getting hooked into the social justice gospel. The article linked to will discuss the pitfalls of this philosophy. Dr. Voddie Baucham "Christians Should Be Ashamed To Use The Term Social Justice" What is the meaning of social justice? Drawing from a general definition of social justice provided by the Oxford English Dictionary and commonly employed by leading schools of sociology, Baucham went on to discuss the meaning of the term. He quoted scholar William H. Young, who describes social justice as “state redistribution of advantages and resources to disadvantaged groups to satisfy their rights to social and economic equality.” In other words, social justice is redistributive justice — a material process of leveling the playing field for certain groups that are deemed “disadvantaged.” It is essentially socialism and/or Marxism. http://www.fulcrum7.com/blog/2019/2/7/dr-voddie-bauchman-christians-should-be-ashamed-to-use-the-term-social-justice More about Dr. Vodie Baucham: https://voddiebaucham.org/about/

    "Christians Should Be Ashamed To Use The Term Social Justice"

    The meaning of Social Justice, as given by the Fulcrum 7 article is limited. Actually as used in society, it is expanded beyond what Fulcrum 7 has suggested. The following comes from Wikipedia and includes some of the additional meanings of the term.

    Yeah, but it is something you have to do before being "mature"! Once you are mature and demented, it is a little late to get started.

    Challenges to Prophetic Thinking

    I agree; and would just add that my comments were NOT to or about Gregory. Just so people know. I was pointing my comments to the author of the article he cited. IF said author actually knew even some basics about Bible Prophecy, he would have written in accordance with the Bible's own descriptor of "more sure word" and "light in a dark place," and "The Day Star arising in his own heart as well as in the heart of others seeking to know Him. Whether or not our growing numbers of modern-day point and shooters seek to insult the parts of our past with the most integrity; it can truly be said that they have nothing better to offer us in it's place. Its just a bunch of useless insults. Never Forget God’s Leading In The Past Choose you this day whom ye will serve; . . .but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15. {CTr 140.1} When I see someone pointing everyone to how "scholarly" they are and then writing an article like this, I am reminded of the following: You Are a Letter; Deliver It! The apostle Paul says to the disciples of Jesus, "Ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ," "known and read of all men." In every one of His children Jesus sends a letter to the world. If you are Christ's follower, He sends in you a letter to the family, the village, the street, where you live. Jesus, dwelling in you, desires to speak to the hearts of those who are not acquainted with Him. Perhaps they do not read the Bible or do not hear the voice that speaks to them in its pages; they do not see the love of God through His works. But if you are a true representative of Jesus, it may be that through you they will be led to understand something of His goodness, and be won to love and serve Him.--Steps to Christ, p. 119. {WM 100.1} "Prophecy" is HIS - STORY, and anything that does NOT tell His story in the hearts and lives of His people, is NOT Christian, and is NOT Biblical, no matter how many scriptures are quoted. Thats why its called "the MORE SURE Word," because what can be surer than Jesus? Without Jesus; it is anti-Christ.

    The issues raised in the article confirm that my opinions on eschatology are just that - opinions only. I am trying my best to not denigrate anyones reasonable opinions. I won't cross certain lines, like considering that Michael Pence may be the Michael of Daniel 12.

    Michal is typically interpreted as "who is like God" by those who consider the Hebrew word to be an abbreviated form of the Hebrew word transliterated as Micha'el. However, excavations from Beth-shean suggest that it could be the name of god transliterated as Mekal. On a comment on the post by HCH above: It is simply a string of Biblical texts that are not in any manner shown to be connected to each other. I am reminded by the student who asked God a few questions and for each opened the Bible to see what God had to say in response to the question: 1) God, what would you have me to do today? Matthew 27:5, and [Judas} went and hanged himself. 2) God, surely you would not be telling me to do that? Luke 10:37, Go and do likewise. 3) God, I can not imagine that you would be telling me to do that? John 13:27 Jesus said. . . what you do, do quickly. HC H, you are clearly associated with eisegesis.

    Friends With God

    Being friends with God is the essence of Christianity. We are closer than friends, we are children of God! We are adopted sons and daughters! Once we realize that it is the kindness of God that draws us to Him, how can we help but want to be His friend - even better His child! In Revelation's letters to the 7 churches, we are advised to overcome in each letter. The same Greek word translated "overcome" can also be translated as "persevere". God truly wants us to be in His Kingdom; and has persevered through thick and thin for 6,000 to bring us there. All He asks from us is to trust Him through thick and thin - as a child trusts his Father. To obey Him and follow His lead - especially in times of peril (at all times really). How can we follow Him if we don't love Him enough to trust Him? I'm not talking about perfect commandment keeping here; I'm talking about LOVE. He definitely loves us; and wants us to love Him back. The most important commands He gives us is to love Him and love one another as He loves us.

    5 Things You Didn't Know about Abraham Lincoln_2 On February 12, 1809, Abraham Lincoln was born in a one-room log cabin in Hodgenville, Kentucky. To celebrate the anniversary of Lincoln's birth, here are 5 things you probably didn't know about one of America’s most admired presidents... He Lost Multiple Elections Before He Became President Lincoln ran for the Illinois General Assembly in 1832 and lost. After serving as an Illinois U.S. Senator from 1847 to 1849, he lost a run for a seat in the U.S. Congress and two U.S. Senate races as well as a vice presidential nomination. In 1858, he joined the newly formed Republican Party and went on to win the presidential election against George McClellan by a wide margin. Lincoln Held a Patent That Revolutionized the Steamboat Industry Lincoln, while he was a law partner of William Herndon in 1848, invented a bellows system that would help improve a boat’s ability to navigate shallow waters. By using balloons that attached to each end of a boat, when the water became shallow, they could be inflated so the boat would be raised, avoiding the need to unload passengers and cargo. Lincoln’s patented model and drawings are at the Smithsonian Institution on display, but his invention was never put into production. He Was a Target of the Confederates During a Battle The Battle of Fort Stevens was fought in northwest Washington, D.C. on July 11 and 12, 1864, and Lincoln was present there when the fort was attacked. It wasn’t surprising that Lincoln would have been an easy target, standing at almost 7-feet tall when wearing his stovepipe hat. Because General Jubal Early realized the fort was being defended by veteran Union soldiers, which made it difficult for Confederate troops to win the battle, he and his troops retreated after dark. Lincoln Didn’t Want to Attend the Play at Ford’s Theater Ulysses S. Grant was originally scheduled to attend the play at Ford’s Theater but begged off to make a trip to New Jersey. Since Lincoln’s wife was ill, he was reluctant to go but felt obligated to attend. Lincoln had invited Schuyler Colfax, the Speaker of the House, to attend with him, but Colfax declined because of another engagement. Had all three attended, it would have endangered more men who occupied high positions of power in the U.S. government. The Secret Service Had Not Been Established Although Lincoln did have a bodyguard along on that fateful night at Ford’s Theater, the man was not in attendance when John Wilkes Booth shot Lincoln. Ironically, President Lincoln had signed a bill into law authorizing the Secret Service the night before he went to the play.

    Ascribing God's revelation about Presidents Bush II, Obama, Trump, and Pence to my imagination is an attempt to explain away an inconvenient truth. Our all knowing God has revealed what we need to know to get us through the time of trouble. Remaining ignorant when the facts are readily available for verification is if only we will look is akin to refusing to look at the serpent raised on the pole in the wilderness. The consequence are as deadly, though not as immediate.

    5 Things You Didn't Know About Nelson Mandela On February 11, 1990, Nelson Mandela, leader of the movement to end South African apartheid, was released from prison after 27 year. Here are 5 things you didn’t know about the man who became the first black president of South Africa... Mandela Spent 27 Years in Prison A previous leper colony located near the Cape Town coast and called Robben Island Prison was where Mandela spent 17 years of his imprisonment. His small cell had no plumbing or bed, and he was forced to work at a lime quarry doing hard labor. Despite his confinement, Mandela earned a University of London law degree and mentored his fellow prisoners. He Appeared in a Movie In the 1992 movie by Spike Lee, “Malcolm X,” Mandela appears at the end. His role was that of a school teacher reciting a speech by Malcolm X to a room of school children from Soweto. However, Mandela, being a pacifist, refused to say the phrase “by any means necessary,” so it was cut from the film. He Used Disguises to Hide Himself From Authorities Disguises helped Mandela elude authorities while fighting against South African apartheid. In order to travel around without attracting the notice of authorities, he hid himself by pretending to be a gardener, chauffeur and chef, among others. He was so good at it that he was nicknamed “the Black Pimpernel” after the book The Scarlet Pimpernel, in which the hero has a secret identity. The Rivonia Trial Led to His Sentence of Life in Prison Eleven men, including Mandela, were arrested on a farm in the suburb of Rivonia, outside Johannesburg, South Africa, and charged with sabotage. Mandela was already set to serve a five-year sentence for leaving the country illegally and urging workers to strike. Although the U.N. Security Council and many nations condemned the trial, Mandela and four others were found guilty on all four counts, and eight received life sentences. Mandela spent 27 years in prison and was finally released by President F.W. de Klerk in 1990. Mandela Needed Special Permission to Enter the United States Mandela was on the watch list for potential terrorists requesting to enter the United States, and he wasn’t removed from that list until he was 89 years old in 2008. Until then, he had to get a waiver granted by the U.S. Secretary of State. The African National Congress (ANC), of which Mandela was a member, was finally removed from the watch list during President Reagan’s term as president.

    Washington Adventist University’s Praise-Dance Team is on Fire!

    Wow. Thats just plain crazy! I wont even mention the names of certain "bands" that would love this as I wont be responsible for referring people to such! The flames of Molech burn cold!! Enoch’s Example Challenges Us Today It was no easier for Enoch to live a righteous life in his day than it is for us at the present time. The world in Enoch’s time was no more favorable to a growth in grace and holiness than it is now, but Enoch devoted time to prayer and communion with God, and this enabled him to escape the corruption that is in the world through lust. It was his devotion to God that fitted him for translation. {CTr 44.2} We are living amid the perils of the last days, and we must receive our strength from the same source as did Enoch. We must walk with God. A separation from the world is required of us. We cannot remain free from this pollution unless we follow the example of faithful Enoch and walk with God. But how many are slaves to the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eye, and the pride of life. This is the reason they are not partakers of the divine nature, and do not escape the corruption that is in the world through lust. They are serving and honoring self. Their constant study is: What shall I eat, what shall I drink, and wherewithal shall I be clothed? {CTr 44.3} Many talk of sacrifice, when they do not know what sacrifice is. They have not tasted its first draught. They talk of the cross of Christ, they profess the faith, but they have no experience in self-denial, lifting the cross and bearing it after their Lord. {CTr 44.4} If they were partakers of the divine nature, the same spirit that dwelt in their Lord would dwell in them. The same tenderness and love, the same pity and compassion, would be manifested in their lives. They would not then wait to have the needy and unfortunate come to them, and be entreated to feel their woes. It would be as natural for them to aid the needy and minister to their wants as it was for Christ to go about doing good. {CTr 44.5} Every man, woman, and youth who professes the religion of Christ should realize the responsibility resting upon them. All should feel that this is an individual work, an individual warfare, an individual preaching of Christ in the daily practice. If each would realize this, and take hold of the work, we should be mighty as an army with banners. The heavenly dove would hover over us. The Sun of Righteousness would shine upon us, and the light of the glory of God would no more be shut from us than it was from the devoted Enoch.-Manuscript 1, 1869 (Sermons and Talks, vol. 2, pp. 5, 6). {CTr 44.6}

    Friends With God

    I truly feel like God is my Friend today: The Christian's sojourn in this world may be fitly compared to the long, cold winter. Here we experience trials, sorrows and disappointments, but we should not permit our minds to dwell upon these. Let us rather look forward with hope and faith to the coming summer when we shall be welcomed to our Eden home, where all is light and joy, where all is peace and love. Had the Christian never experienced the cutting winter storms of affliction in this world, had their heart never been chilled by disappointment or oppressed by fear, they would scarcely know how to appreciate heaven. We must decide that we will not be despondent, though often weary, sad, and heartsick; the winter will not last forever. The summer of peace, joy, and eternal gladness soon will come. Then Christ will dwell with us and will lead us to fountains of living waters, and will wipe all tears from our eyes. In the coldest winters of our experience: Let us rejoice in the love of God. Let us praise him who has made us such royal promises. Let these promises keep our hearts in perfect peace. Let us honor God by weaving more of Jesus and heaven into our lives. Jesus lives. His hand is guiding us. This present life is not the summer but the winter of the Christian, nevertheless he may constantly enjoy the sunbeams of Christ's righteousness. He may have in his heart the peace "which passeth all understanding," even the peace which Christ gives.
