  1. JERUSALEM When people think of Jerusalem they often mean the city part and forget that Mount Zion is also included in Jerusalem. King David built his royal palace on Mount Zion, and later king Solomon built the Temple there too. God`s word tells us concerning the two parts of Jerusalem. `Awake, awake! Put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city!` (Isa. 52:1) `For Zion`s sake I will not hold my peace and for Jerusalem`s sake I will not rest.` (Isa. 62: 1) Now we are told that `Jerusalem above is free and is the mother of us all.` (Gal. 4: 26) So what does the heavenly Jerusalem look like? `For you have not come to the mountain that may be touched........but you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels.` (Heb. 12: 18 & 22) We are told that the heavenly Jerusalem is also made of two parts: Mount Zion and the city. Now we ask, `Why two parts and who will be in them?` Mount Zion. I believe God`s word tells us that Mount Zion was the seat of the throne, on earth by King David, and in heaven the Lord Jesus Christ. The Body of Christ has been promised that they will rule and reign with the Lord on His throne, and that will be, I believe from Mount Zion. Christ said - `To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with me on my throne as I also overcame and sat down with my Father on His throne.` (Rev. 3: 21) So who then is in the city part of the heavenly Jerusalem? `...they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a CITY for them.` (Heb.11: 16) These are, I believe, the Old Testament saints who believed God for the promise of the city. Summing up I believe - Mount Zion for the Body of Christ. The City for the Old Testament saints. `God having provided something better, (greater dominion) for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us.` (Heb. 11: 40)
  2. Hi Tampered With, How wonderful to know that the Lord will reign through Israel, in the millennium. This is what, we know through God`s word has been promised to Israel. The Lord will raise up for them a man called David to be their king, (Jer. 30: 9) and priests and Levites, (Isa. 66: 18 - 21). However the Lord will not be ON the earth but rule and reign from the highest. (Eph. 1: 21) Also the Body of Christ will not be ON the earth but will rule and reign with Christ from the highest. (Rev. 3: 21) Marilyn.

    Peace Plan

    Hi Diaste, I can see the similarity, however God does say it is in the land of Israel, but the effects would be felt across the globe. The hail etc will come down upon the Russian Federation and the others with them, who turn on each other with their swords. This happens on the mountains of Israel and not in the valley outside Jerusalem at the end of the trib. Now remember not all Israelis run to hide after they see the A/D, for two-thirds are killed as the world`s armies come from Armageddon down through Israel to Jerusalem. (Zech. 13: 8) So those people would still be burning the armaments from the Russian war. Marilyn.
  4. Hi Blue Lulu, So glad that is helpful. As to vitamins, just a good multivitamin and a vitamin B tablet is very good for helping the body to function. Remember it is often easier to grab a sugary drink or food for quick energy but it soon makes the body slump, and we feel more tired. Thus I go for protein drinks (powder & mix in water) or cheese, fruit, nuts etc which give more strength for longer. Also we can feel good for a while and then we can overdo it and the body becomes more tired the next day to make up for it. Thus I suggest you (we) pace yourself and factor in rest times or activities, like a walk in the park, to calm the nerves. Doing too much shopping can be a big drain on the nerves which then tires us out, so even sitting in the sun can give the body time to heal. Always on the go is not good for the mind, the body or the soul. The world is in overdrive and we have to consciously not do that, and manage our strength carefully. all the best, Marilyn.

    Peace Plan

    Hi Diaste, I see there are a whole lot of combatants that need dealing with. 1. God will deal with the Russian Federation, plus Iran, Ethiopia and Libya. (Ez. 38 & 39) This will create a large power vacuum in the Middle East. 2. It is then that the Peace negotiator arises and deceives the world by presenting His peace plan. He is the Assyrian from Iraq, and brings together - Syria, Iraq & Jordan as his power base. (Dan. 7: 8) 3. From that national leadership he goes on to become a international leader ruling over the 10 kings of Islam. ( 3 + 7 = 10) Marilyn.
  6. Hi Blue Lulu, I do feel for you, as we all know what it is to have illness and difficulties and struggle in life. I think managing work with illness is very difficult. However if you have to work, then I would suggest - - you keep close to the Lord, - don`t let the enemy get you down with discouragement, as that can so quickly take any strength you may have, - give yourself plenty of rest when not working. Don`t spen hours watch the TV, etc as that drains your energy. - Relax in a warm bath and later listen to soothing music. - Make meal times easy, but nourishing with protein, - eggs, cheese, meat, milk etc. Fresh fruit and salads, easy & give the body the right vitamins and minerals needed. - Too many takeaways are not good and tend to make us tired. - Also make sure you have good snacks during the work time as that keeps your body fuelled and able to cope better. Often when not well we don`t feel like eating, so have a protein drink, (easy to digest) or nuts, etc to keep up your energy. - Keep up the water as that enables our bodies to function properly. (8 glasses a day) I have had CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) for many years and I have found those hints work well for me. all the best, Marilyn.
  7. Hi Tampered With, I agree to a point, yet we do see that the Lord counsels them to repent. And I believe many are doing this and will do this in the coming days. And those who were never apart of that group are the Philadelphia church and that is the group, (with those repentant from Laodicea) who will come to maturity and be caught away to be with the Lord. The Lord is building His called out ones and He is maturing them by His Holy Spirit. The Laodicean group are NOT the measure of Christ`s ability to build, nurture and mature His body over the centuries and over the world. Marilyn,
  8. Hi dhchristian, Yes the truths of the Lord revealed to each of the church groups over the centuries have come to us today, however the believers of those times are in the General assembly waiting to come with the Lord to be united with us, - the whole Body of Christ. (Heb. 12: 22 & 23) Perhaps we are thinking the same thing but saying it in a different way. regards Marilyn.
  9. Hi dhchristian, We actually do have the unity of the Holy Spirit as it is by the Holy Spirit that this is. We just have to `keep` it in our own lives, we do not bring it about. `....endeavouring to KEEP the unity of the Spirit...` (Eph. 4: 3) I agree that the Ephesian church represents the early Apostolic Church, however the Philadelphia Church represents the one that comes to the fullness of Christ. They are the ones who will be kept from the trial about to come on the whole earth, plus their inheritance is to rule with Christ in the highest realm. (Rev. 3: 12) It is the unity of the faith that is the final maturing of the Body, the things we have received by the Holy Spirit of Christ`s fullness - His character, & His purposes. `Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: ( Eph. 4:13) regards, Marilyn.
  10. Hi dhchristian, Good comments and I agree with you. Not often I see such good teaching. Well done. We can `prove` the fullness by history. The fullness of Christ, the understanding of His character and His purposes for the Body of Christ, for Israel and the nations. So let`s look at history to see how the Holy Spirit has led the Body into understanding the full counsel of Christ. We see at first how error came in and then how the truth was restored a step at a time. Headship – ministry gifts (Eph. 4: 11) Bishops substituted. (AD 110) Holy Spirit Baptism & Gifts – Formalism of worship. (3rd C.) Holiness – Amalgamation Church & State. (AD 323) Baptism – Infant sprinkling. (6th C.) Justification by Faith – Penance Indulgence AD 1063)Dark Ages. Reformation, Lutheran 1517. (Justification by Faith) Baptist – 1608 (Full immersion) Methodist – 1738 (Holiness) Pentecostal – 1906 (Baptism in the Holy Spirit) Apostolic – 1916 (Headship Ministries - Evangelist, Pastor, Teacher, Prophet, Apostle) Maturity - 2000 ...> (Christ the Head & His Purposes) Thus we see that the Holy Spirit has led the Body of Christ over the centuries and across the world in every area of the Christ life in the believer. We are in the final stage of `not being tossed to & fro,` that is why I believe eschatology has so much discussion. It has to do with Christ`s purposes for - The Body of Christ, (ruling with Him on His throne) Israel, (ruling in the millennium) The Nations, (under Christ`s rulership through Israel). regards, Marilyn.
  11. Hi Retro, This is what I said, so we are agreeing there bro. The Lord is reminding the people of Israel of the judgment at the end of this age BEFORE the millennium. The wicked will be separated from the righteous. Marilyn.
  12. Hi Retro, So let`s have a closer look. `At that time Michael shall stand up, the great Prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation, even to that time, and at that time -your people shall be delivered, 1.everyone who is found written in the book.(And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some (people) to everlasting life,) 2.Some (people) to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.` (Da. 12: 1 - 3) This is about the righteous and unrighteous at the end of the age BEFORE the Millennium. The Lord is reminding the people of Israel those prophetic words of Daniel. `Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their father.` (Matt. 13: 43) Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.` (Dan. 12: 1 - 3) Marilyn.
  13. Hi Retro, Nice to discuss with you on this subject. Yes we know that the Messiah is the King who will rule in the millennium, however we need to see what God has revealed to Israel a step at a time. `...the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people;....` (Dan. 2: 44) `Then the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions shall serve Him.` (Dan. 7:27) So we see in the early Matthew 13 parables that the Lord is referring to God`s rulership through Israel. It is NOT until we get to the Pearl of great price that the Lord reveals that it is Himself that is the King through whom the rulership of heaven will come. Marilyn.
  14. The Parable of the Dragnet. `Again, the kingdom (rule) of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered some of every kind, which, when it was full, they drew to shore; and they sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away. So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just, and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. ` (Matt. 13: 47 - 50) The Lord is reminding the people of Israel of the judgment at the end of this age before the millennium. The wicked will be separated from the righteous. “For behold, the day is coming burning like an oven, and all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up,” says the Lord of Hosts, “That will leave them neither root nor branch. But you who fear my name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; and you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves. (Mal.4: 1 & 2)
