  1. Hi Nadjeschda, It would certainly appear that way. For you see the more we have the more we want, and SELF is the motive. We can have as many charities as we want, but the bottom line is - we will always have the poor for there is always the greedy. (as you are pointing out). Thus we see man`s real problem is his heart. and people can try to change but deep down there is still that SELFISH heart. Mankind is doomed. Or should I say was doomed until Jesus actually gave His life so that His unselfish `DNA` could be in planted in those who receive. I know the difference & would not go back to my selfish heart, but continually praise and thank God for His mercy and kindness. Marilyn.
  2. Hi Waiting2BwithHim, Very good question. Remember what the Apostle Paul said - `For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God.` (Acts 20: 27) Paul had shared with the believers `the whole counsel of God,` all the truth. Then Paul went on to say - `Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves.` (Acts 20: 28 - 30) Thus we can see that divisions arose after Paul died. Over the centuries this continued with much error being spread. However the Lord Himself said - `...when He the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth...` (John 16: 13) So along side error we see that the Holy Spirit is guiding those who will receive the truth. Over the centuries as people received some aspect of truth they gathered together and eventually formed a denomination. Then more truth was revealed and people gathered together around that and then formed another denomination. Those who belonged to a former denomination, often could not receive some more clarification of truth, thus the newer group had to form their own gatherings and denomination. This has gone on for centuries. Today many believers are turning away from man`s denominations and seeking to gather in 2`s & 3`s or more. Christ is the Head of His Body and is desiring His people to look to Him and not to man. Godly people can help us, mentor, teach but they are not to usurp the role of the Holy Spirit who is making us like Christ. Marilyn.
  3. Hi MM, That is what I said, also. I just used the same illustration for both. So we agree there. Marilyn.
  4. Hi dhchristian, I`m a pre-tribber and do not believe in the doctrine of `imminence,` as I see some things yet to happen. As to the judgment in the house of the Lord, that is happening all the time, as per the 7 churches over the centuries and across the world. The Laodicean group, as we probably both agree, will sail right into the trib, without blinking or even realising where it is, as many of the ministers will still be leading them into the `foxes den,` the world system. I do not agree that we are all from, or in the Laodicean group. Many are in the Philadelphia group. Quite a contrast there with the faithful believers promised such a wonderful inheritance, and the rich, wealthy, blind group needing to see their nakedness, and respond to the Lord `knocking` at their heart`s door. Marilyn.
  5. Hi MM, I see the 3rd Seal, (preview of great Powers) as per inflation - the scales are indicative of a market economy/ free trade. Thus we see great inflation. Then all the green grass in reality is the actual touching of the food production leading to famine. Marilyn.
  6. Hi MM, Well....let`s face reality here. The first trumpet judgment, - `The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth; and a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.` (Rev. 8: 7) Now that is not just speaking of people`s lawns. (lol) And since my hubby is a farmer I will get help from him regarding the effects of such a judgment. ALL THE GREEN GRASS. Grass is food for animals, (cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry etc) no food animals die. Grass is also grains for food for people - wheat, barley, corn, rice, etc. These affect our daily cereal, bread, cakes, biscuits, pasta, and many other food products that mankind rely on daily. Because cattle, especially cows will be affected - we have milk, butter, cream, cheese etc that will be in short supply. So a day`s pay for a loaf of bread will not be surprising, since the very basis of man`s food production will be affected. Let`s remember that the word `wrath` is but ONE English word from the Greek word `Orge,` which expresses wrath, anger, vengeance with connotations of punishment. To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity. (Isa. 26: 21) Marilyn.
  7. Hi dhchristian, Thank you for the thought. I did look at the `vision` notes, but generally don`t go by those sort much. Bottom line though, yes I see man`s religious organisations, (Laodicean group) connecting more & more with the world`s system, and then those who follow hard after the Lord. So we are agreeing there. Great. regards, Marilyn.
  8. Hi Spock, I thought you may get a shock. I`m still working through such a close time. Anyway I saw Dennis start to mention dates so I thought I`d add my bit. So good question, `Why` do I think those times. Well when I started looking into years I did what everyone else does and looked at the `generation that will not pass away,` & I thought, well, by 80 years, (2028) (Israelis) that would start to happen. 1. Jewish Calendar. Then I looked at Daniel`s days in Dan. 12, (1,260, 1,290, & 1,335) and began to realise that the `blessed time` must be a celebration of the Lord`s victory and deliverance of Israel. That lead me to look up all the Jewish festivals for the different months. And that was quite revealing. I then read about `Adar 1 & Adar 2` relating to when Israel`s calendar catches up somewhat to the solar calendar. And this happens every 3 years or so. And Adar, (esp. Adar 2) is when Israel celebrates the great victory. Thus with a Jewish calendar and its festivals I was able to place that over the main points of the tribulation - Start, (Peace Treaty) sacrifices begin, Abomination of desolation, Lord`s return, Temple cleansing, Celebrating. Then I tried 2020 - 2017, and 2023 - 2030 to see if there was a difference. and there was - one day, when the A/D occurred. In the earlier group the A/D happens on the Sabbath, (an affront to the Jews) whereas on the later group, the A/D happens on another day. Thus that was quite significant for me. Then I also have some other indicators - 2. Happenings in the world system. God is bringing Russia, (its army) down closer to Israel. Russia has leased a port from Syria just above Israel. There it can bring down its army, tanks, weapons etc etc. The other important nation that joins with Russia, is Iran and they have also put some of their army and weapons just over the Golan heights into Israel and are frequently sending missiles over there. The Economic situation. (I am putting together some notes about the Formation of the economic part of the Global Government.) At the moment the IMF is looking for a new leader. Christine Lagarde (the leader at the moment) will go to the European Central Bank while my bet for the new IMF leader is `Mark Carney,` a very Charismatic person with great financial background. The IMF will be, (& really is) the Lender of Last resort for the world. I`ll write more when I put the notes together. Those are the main ones I look at, though of course - more earthquakes, etc, more lawlessness, etc 3. Clarification of truth for the Body of Christ. (Eph. 4: 11 - 16). I see this has progressed across the Body and even here on this forum over the years I have been on, I see we are coming closer to understanding `the whole counsel of God.` (Acts 20: 27) And the rise of the Laodicean group with their connection to the world system. regards, Marilyn. BTW I have more note on this in my blogs, called `The Tribulation Calendar.`
  9. This shows the extra months of Adar 1 & 2 with the 15th day for Purim, (celebrations) before the New Year & the Millennium. 1,335 days = 1,290 + 30 + 15 days. 1,290 - Temple Cleansing 30 - Adar 1 15th - Purim celebrations in Adar 2 `Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the 1,335 days.` (Dan. 12: 12)
  10. SUMMARY OF MAIN EVENTS The Peace Treaty - Adar 20th (March 16th 2020) The month of Adar is the time of rejoicing of deliverance from enemies. It is the last month of the Jewish year and the happiest in the calendar. This rejoicing will be after God deals with the Russian Federation of Israel`s mountains. The Temple Sacrifices - Cheshvan 4th (Oct. 22nd 2020) The month of Cheshvan is the only month that does not have a holiday but is reserved for the time of the Messiah to inaugurate the third temple. This will be appropriate for Israel to prepare by starting their sacrifices. The Temple Desecration - Av 11th (July 29th 2023) The month of Av is when Israel mourns the destruction of its temple. Sadly this will be when the anti-Christ sets up the Abomination in their temple, thus desecrating it. Jesus` Return - Tevet 29th (Jan. 8th 2027) The month of Tevet is a time of mourning when Israel mourns and repents for the armies of Babylon who laid siege to Jerusalem. This is exactly what will happen when all the armies of the world surround Jerusalem. The Temple Cleansing - Shevat 30th (Feb. 7th 2027) The month of Shevat makes the beginning of a `new year` for trees. It is the season in which the earliest-blooming trees emerge from their winter sleep. This can only happen when the Lord brings forth the living waters from under the Mount of Olives, bringing life giving water throughout the land. This water then will be used to cleanse the temple, priests and vessels. Celebrating - Adar (2) 15th (Mar. 24th 2027) The month of Adar & also the double Adar (leap year) is the time of celebration of victory of their enemies. Most appropriate for the Lord`s deliverance of the nation of Israel.
  11. Just my calculations - `You are not in darkness that this day should over take you as a thief,` (1 Thess. 5: 4) & `come together all the more as you see the day approaching.` (Heb: 10:23)
  12. Hi Dennis, I agree with much of what you say. However I do not believe in the doctrine of imminency. I see from Eph. 4: 11 - 16 that we, the Body of Christ will be brought to the unity of the faith & the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, ..... by the Holy Spirit. this means we will gave the last great truth to be clarified - God`s purposes through Christ for the Body of Christ, for Israel and the nations. This is in progress now and that is why the eschatology and prophetic forums are `hot` topics. Years ago it was the baptism/infilling of the Holy Spirit that was the `hot` topic, or later the Apostles and Prophets, but now it is the purposes of God through Christ. regards, Marilyn.
  13. Hi Spock, Love all your questions and glad you included `anyone.` So I see two big misunderstandings people have - 1. Thinking there is ONLY a specific day of God`s wrath. The word `Day` in Gk, means a time period as well as a specific day. A poor example would be - Christmas time, (putting up lights, trees, preparing presents, etc) and then the specific Christmas day. We call both Christmas. 2. Thinking that the English word `wrath` is the ONLY word for that time. THE GREAT TRIBULATION Invariably scripture connects this time with tribulation and suffer­ing. Zephehiah (1:14-18) provides one of the most concise descrip­tive accounts, as being more severe than any other in history. This is confirmed by Jeremiah (30:7), Daniel (12:1) and Joel (2:2). Jesus Himself warned “For there shall be great tribulation such as was not since the beginning to this time, no nor ever shall be.” Matt. 24:21. John succinctly epitomises it as “the Day of the wrath of God”. Rev. 6:15-17. Greek ‘Orge’ expresses wrath, anger, vengeance with connotations of punishment. To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity. (Isa. 26:21). (ref: `Fires before the dawn.` A. Gardiner) regards, Marilyn.
  14. Hi Spock, The reality is that the Laodicean group will go into the trib, and that is a huge number for a start. The Philadelphia group are a smaller number of faithful followers and they will join with the rest of the Body coming with the Lord. Also the population numbers are billions, and multiplying all the time. As in former wars, there are not many atheists, so in the trib, people will have to address the reality of severe hardship & lawlessness abounding. A very frightening time and will escalate fast. regards, Marilyn.
  15. Hi Spock, Lots of good questions to ponder. Now the `wife` in Rev. 19: 7 are the people of Israel who receive the Lord when He comes to deliver them. They have been promised this for centuries. They have made themselves ready by their righteous acts. Note the Body of Christ is righteous by Christ`s sacrifice. Big difference there. We are the Body, (closest relationship) and Israel is the wife, the bride, as many Old Testament scriptures say. They have a different inheritance than us, but all will be in God`s great kingdom, just ruling in different realms. regards, Marilyn.
