some figure bible reconing of a generation is 40 years. However, the word for generation, can also mean race, of maybe other things. The next question is, which generation is he speaking of or too? My overall, short version of my understanding of these times is at http://omegazine.com/nutshell.html and my incomplete bible study on matt 24 itself is at http://omegazine.com/spiritual/eschatology/matt24.html if you are interested. Happy studying!
To all who are concerned about my vision and remembering me in prayer, please know that I am grateful to the Lord...for you, my Worthy family and body in Christ. Thought I should update you. I already attempted to reach an eye doctor back on Friday, but nobody was available. I could not get a response! So the office may have been closed. But with tomorrow being Monday ( they don't do weekends in our small town), I'll try again tomorrow. Or perhaps I will have to end up with my own physician...much as he tends to be no help at times, Yet he does 'book out' quite far, so there's a good chance he'd be out of the picture because he''s so busy & I can't get in. That would only leave the option of urgent care. Please pray I can somehow be seen soon, receive a correct diagnosis and the proper treatment. And may God bless each of you.
Thanks for your kind compliment. Everyone needs to be appreciated sometimes. I want you to know that I appreciate your appreciation. Keep up the good work in reaching out to the downtrodden and spreading the gospel. May The Lord's favor be with you every step of the way. As promised, I will be holding your mission work up in prayer.
I am interested in hearing other opinions about this crucial verses in Matthew 24. "So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates. Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place" (Matthew 24:33-34). I never really had an opinion about this verse before I realized how significant it was in separating opinions concerning prophecy within the body of Christ. Since then, I think that it is important to gain more clarity on this verse as we move forward in the times that we are living. I found from a basic Google search that according to Genesis 15:14-16, God defines a generation as 100 years because He tells Abraham that his descendants will be oppressed for 400 years. Then, He tells Abraham that in the fourth generation they will return to the land He promised Abraham. So, that would equal 100 years per generation, which would equal 400 years of oppression in a foreign land. Although, I wonder if that includes the time they spent wandering in the wilderness. So, I don't know how long I would consider a generation to begin with. But, I would conclude that Jesus is not referring to the disciples as "this generation." He is saying that "this generation" will witness all the things He has just described in Matthew 24. Thank you in advance for your thoughts on the subject.
I haven't seen the latest video covered much really. This one shows a meeting with a partner of PP called StemExpress. Really wretched stuff. It's getting close time to staart contacting our elected officials about this as they will be back in session soon. http://www.christianpost.com/news/we-want-50-more-baby-livers-a-week-says-planned-parenthood-partner-whos-seen-rampant-violations-in-abortion-clinics-143670/
