    • Gotta keep up on the Worthy Network blog.  
    • Do you really want to know?
    • Hey George, what's up with the new green dots next to our names?
    • Amen!  Act 7:51 WEB “You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, you always resist the Holy Spirit! As your fathers did, so you do."  Some do stubbornly resist the call and conviction of the Holy Spirit.  They harden their own hearts in unrepentance;  God may also harden their hearts like He did Pharoh's or satan may enter a person's heart like he did Judas.  I don't know.  But I do agree that man must bear his own responsibility for being lost.  God calls all and is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.  1Ti 4:10 WEB For to this end we both labor and suffer reproach, because we have set our trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe.  1Ti 2:3  WEB For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; :4  who desires all people to be saved and come to full knowledge of the truth.  :5  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6  who gave himself as a ransom for all;  Joh 3:19  This is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil. 20  For everyone who does evil hates the light, and doesn’t come to the light, lest his works would be exposed.  1Ti 1:15  The saying is faithful and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.   Ephesians is addressed to the saints, those already set apart repentant born again believers.  Before the foundation of the world God chose us in Him that we should be holy and without blame before Him.  When we consider that God is outside of time and can see the end from the beginning, it is not hard to see that He has predestined all who are in Him to all the blessings of Ephesians 1.  God's sovereignty is still in tact if He allows some to resist Him and choose not to inherit these blessings.  He may call them fools, but still He allows them to go their own stubborn prideful way.   We are only predestined when we are in Christ, as I read Ephesians 1.  Please correct me where I am wrong.
    • Question: "Is the last trumpet of 1 Thessalonians 4 the same as the seventh trumpet of Revelation?"

      Answer: Those who hold to a midtribulation rapture teach that the seventh trumpet of Revelation 11:15 and the last trumpet of 1 Corinthians 15:52 and 1 Thessalonians 4:16 are identical. Those who teach a pretribulation rapture identify them as separate events. What difference does it make, and how can we know the truth?

      Why does it matter whether or not the trumpets are the same? God has given us His Word as the revelation of His plan of redemption, and that plan covers everything from creation to the new creation. Deuteronomy 29:29 says, “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” There are many things that God has chosen to reveal to us, and it is important for us to understand them so that we can obey Him. We don’t always understand why He does things, but we are called to trust Him for the parts we don’t understand and to study to understand the rest. As we look at the texts about these trumpets, it becomes clear that they are part of a chronology that God has given us of events in the last days. Whether or not we are still living when those events come to pass, they involve us, so we ought to know what God has revealed to us.

      The book of Revelation has sometimes been viewed as a book of mystery, yet the title itself implies something brought out of hiding. More specifically, it is “the revelation of Jesus Christ . . . to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass” (Revelation 1:1). God wants us to know what is going to happen, so we can be prepared, and to help us in calling others to repentance. Beginning in chapter 6, we are given a chronological record of things that will happen in the last days. There is a series of seven seals, then a series of seven trumpets, then a series of seven bowls of wrath. We read in Revelation 11:15, “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, ‘The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.’” In the context, this seems to come around the middle of the tribulation period.

      In 1 Corinthians 15, Paul is writing to believers concerning the transition from this life to eternal life. Our mortal bodies will be transformed into immortal, incorruptible bodies, prepared for the eternal kingdom of God. Verse 52 says, “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” Paul addresses the same subject to the Thessalonians, and specifically connects it with the Second Coming of Christ. “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:16–17).

      There is no question that God has revealed these things to us and that He intends for us to be encouraged and instructed by them. The question is whether these trumpets are the same. If they are the same, then the rapture of the church happens in the middle of the tribulation period, and saints need to be prepared to endure those trials. If they are not the same, then we need to know when the last trump will sound, so that we can be prepared for it. In order to find out whether they are the same, we can compare the events they are associated with. http://www.gotquestions.org/last-trumpet.html
