    • Hi Pierre Nice post..I think this is actually a bit controversial. But to me it is simple, if you desire earthly possessions then that is where your heart is, and if you desire Heavenly things then that is where your heart is..God has ALWAYS provided for me! and if i am ever in abundance then i see it as Gods to do with as He directs me, there should not be Christians lacking any necessities while there are Christians who have abundance.. Glory to God
    • Eoreris The False Prophet's kingdom will rule for 1290 days.  The Two witnesses will testify for 1260 days.  It's not quite 3 1/2 yrs, but close. This is how I came to the conclusion that the 2 witnesses will be prophesying during the False Prophet's reign;  Revelation 11:2   But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. Revelation 11:3   And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

        Revelation 11:4   These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. The temple is measured first (true worshipers) ....then after this trouble begins with Jerusalem and will last forty two months (1290 days / 3 1/2 yrs).  The two witnesses will come on to the scene at the start of that trouble to warn Israel and the world of the evil that has come. Jeremiah 25:29   For, lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the LORD of hosts. Something will happen there in Jerusalem out of the ordinary at that same time. Jeremiah 4:6   Set up the standard toward Zion: retire, stay not: for I will bring evil from the north, and a great destruction. Jeremiah 10:22   Behold, the noise of the bruit is come, and a great commotion out of the north country, to make the cities of Judah desolate, and a den of dragons.     So when God gives full power to the False Prophet who leads the beast with the 10 horns, he will start there in Jerusalem.  This is when the trouble begins....for the False Prophet and the beast have power for only 42 months (1290 days).  Everything is going to be turned upside down, not only for Jerusalem, but the whole land (Christian land), and the earth.  The whole world is watching, and Israel's friends suddenly become her enemies (Kings of the North). Big clue this is not any Muslem nation, or Russia, but she who pretends to be Israel's friend.  This unexpected invasion on Jerusalem marks the start of the tribulation.  Things will happen quickly from here and this is when the two witnesses come on to the scene.  God is still keeping a flame burning for Israel, and the whole world who is watching to warn us all by sending his two witnesses, displaying his power in them.   After their 1260 day testimony, the two witnesses are killed, and brought back to life, they are taken up, and the 7th trumpet comes quickly.  This leaves  a little time for the kings of the East to cross over into Israel (rev 16:12), and in turn, all the Kings of the earth come in to join this battle also. When this happens, the False Prophet's days are closing, because all his enemies have come in to Israel to stand up to him and destroy him.  So you see the timing of the two witnesses is perfect.  As prophesy unfolds, they will be there to remind the world of what God has foretold and warned, but unfortunately, they will be hated by the world, and seen as something evil.      
    • Shalom, Marcus. Okay! We're making progress in understanding! I agree with your assessment of the Fall Festivals and the Second Advent. I also understand your take on the Abomination set up in the Temple. I used to believe that way, too. That, however, was before I realized how much of the Olivet Discourse is in the past. See, it's easy for those who don't know that so much was already fulfilled in the past to think those details must somehow be fulfilled in the future. Not everything was fulfilled in the past, mind you, and there are portions that have yet to be fulfilled, but there's a SIGNIFICANT amount that we should NOT anticipate being fulfilled anymore. And, the easiest way to distinguish between the two is the usage of the PRONOUNS employed (or implied in the verb forms). You're probably already aware of this, but for those who may be reading along, Greek has MANY second-person pronouns translated as "you," "your," or "yours," in today's English. The old "modern English" of the 17th century - the "English of the 1611 King James Version of the Bible" - the "King's English" - used five other words: "ye," "thou," "thee," "thy," and "thine." This was a little closer to the Greek: A table of the "modern English" of 1611 A.D. is here: Second Person Pronouns
      Singular:
      thou = you (subjective form) "Thou shalt not kill."
      thee = you (objective form) "I love thee."
      thy = your (adjective form of the possessive) "Thy will be done."
      thine = yours (predicate nominative of the possessive) "All that thou seest is thine."
      Plural:
      ye = you (subjective form) "Go ye into all the world..."
      you = you (objective form) "All these things shall be added unto you."
      your = your (adjective form of the possessive) "Love your enemies."
      yours = yours (predicate nominative of the possessive) "All things are yours." Here's a similar table for the Greek pronouns. For the Greek, we must also add in the declension's case: Second Person Pronouns
      Singular:
      su = you (nominative case = subject)
      sou = of you (genitive case)
      sou = from you (ablative case)
      soi = in you / at you (locative case)
      soi = with you / by you (instrumental case)
      soi = to you / for you (dative case)
      se = you (accusative case = direct object)
      Plural:
      humeis = you (nominative case = subject)
      humoon = of you (genitive case)
      humoon = from you (ablative case)
      humin = in you / at you (locative case)
      humin = with you / by you (instrumental case)
      humin = to you / for you (dative case)
      humas = you (accusative case = direct object) Because Yeshua` was specifically talking to His students - His disciples - His talmidiym, when He was specifically talking TO THEM about some future event near enough at hand for them to experience, He would use the pronouns "humeis," "humoon," "humin," and "humas." Often in Greek, the verb used will also have the pronoun embedded within the ending. For instance, in the indicative mode and future tense,
      1st person, singular ends in -soo (oo being an omega),
      2nd person, singular ends in -seis,
      3rd person, singular ends in -sei,
      1st person, plural ends in -somen (o being an omicron),
      2nd person, plural ends in -sete, and
      3rd person, plural ends in -sousi. Indeed, for many 2nd-person-plural modes, voices and tenses, the verb ending will be -te (tou epsilon) or -the (theta epsilon). Therefore, by simply looking for these verbs and pronouns, one can find the places in which Yeshua` was speaking DIRECTLY to His students about something they would see in their lifetime. Whenever He gazed off into the more distant future, He would change pronouns or He would say something less direct, speaking more generically about the future. Anyone who has access to a Greek NT, a computer program that gets into the Greek and Hebrew, or BibleHub.com can look these up and check them for himself or herself.
    • Pharisees were not truly onservant according to Jesus.  They merely had the outward appearance.  Jesus said the said but dod not do.  Sad but true.
    • Paul instructed that those who would be rich in this world be warned to be willing to give and he also taught that it was possible to hurt by giving when done without love.  He taught that we ought to lay up extras so that we might give when necessary.  Jesus never taught that we should be poor but rather not to trust in riches.  There isn't anything wrong with being wealthy provided we love God and our neighbors as ourselves.  I know the truth and therefore am free.
