  1. Countdown.........
  2. So true, Danger Noodle. Glad you have discernment. regards, Marilyn.
  3. Hi KPaulG, Yes. The timing is with a `?` as it is in the Lord`s hands as we know. regards, Marilyn.
  4. Hi KPaulG, Great. Yes we look to our precious Lord to bring judgment in His timing. All the best as you launch out on the road & into adult life. Bless you & your family, Marilyn.
  5. Hi delade3, The promise in the book of Jeremiah is to Israel. If you would read the context you would see - `For thus says the Lord: after seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you & perform my good word towards you, and cause you to return to this place. For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and a hope. Then you will call upon me .....and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from the places where I have driven you...` (Jer. 29: 10 - 14) Nothing to do with the Body of Christ, which was not revealed to the OT prophets. We are not the centre of God`s word. We read it to learn of God`s character & His purposes through Christ. Remember Stephen the martyr, well do you think he was saying to God as he was being stoned, "Is this the plans you have for me, for peace & hope?" No. God`s plan is to make us like Christ, & that means going through trials & tribulations. Don`t be lulled or drawn into fleshly hopes. Marilyn.
  6. Hi hmbld, Thank you for asking that. I was taught this end-time view by teachers in the Apostolic Church in Australia. They are now part of the Australian Christian Churches. (ACC) (Note there are many now who call themselves the `Apostolic church of whatever & are quite strange,) but the one I was brought up in is from the Welsh Revival, (early last century). Being part of the ACC shows that it is a recognised Christian denomination. You can check up the ACC`s beliefs on the web site & they are straightforward. So when was I taught - back in the `60`s & `70`s by pastors & teachers, they believed that Islam would arise & at that time it was still mainly in tents in the desert etc. Most believed in the RCC (Revived Roman Empire) & were waiting for Europe to get to 10 countries joining the EU which happened. But then eventually now there are 27 countries in the EU, so that theory really is not true. However, what do we see regarding Islam. It has begun to rise & has become a focus to the world. However it will not achieve its great power until the leader arises & brings the two factions, (Sunni & Shi'ite) together. So what I was taught has continued to unfold. It was first just a view, then a potential & is now coming to be actual. Marilyn.
  7. CONCLUSION The nations today consider that they control their own affairs, and that they are the sole arbiter of their destiny. There is, however, a higher authority controlling the world systems and shaping the nations according to His Divine Will. No empire has ever been established on earth without the sanction & authority of God. In His word, He has revealed His Time Frame for the Gentiles ruling the world, with each World Ruler prophesied. Then in contemporary times we see that God established the Super Powers and brought them together to form the last Gentile World Government. In exact chronological sequence we have seen throughout history the world rulers come & go, till finally again in exact chronological sequence we see the four Super Powers arise. Thus we can rest assured that God will complete His judgment of the Gentiles and bring in His government through Israel to bring blessings to the nations as they rule in peace under God. Marilyn.
  8. Hi simplejeff, Yes I know what you mean as in those behind the scenes, however they need to exercise force & domination to control the masses. The one worlders do not worry which federation is in control just that there will be a central government. Remember it will, as always, come about by deception, so those in high places think they are part of this elite group with power. Marilyn.
  9. Hi SwordMaster, As to scriptures I think it would be more beneficial meditating of what the Lord has given to His Body - `....the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband.....For how do you know, O husband, whether you will save your wife.` (1 Cot. 10 - 16) Marilyn.
  10. God`s Time Piece – Israel. God promised Israel that they would be the Rulers of the world. This would be in the millennial kingdom of God. God also said when that would be – after Israel`s `fig tree` generation. `Now learn a parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender & put forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things , know that it is near, at the very doors. (Matt. 24: 32 & 33) The fig tree represents Israel coming to Nationhood once again. After nearly two thousand years many Jewish people returned to their homeland and worked toward becoming a recognised nation again. Thus it was on the 15th of May in 1948 that Israel became a nation following the United Nations declaration. `Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things are fulfilled.` (Matt. 24: 34) The generation that is part of Israel becoming a nation in 1948, called `this generation,` will see the end of the Gentile nations ruling the world. They will have to go through much hardship & tribulation till their final deliverance by the Lord. `Jesus said to the people of Israel – “ Nation will rise against nation, & kingdom against kingdom, and there will be great earthquakes in various places, & famines & pestilences; and there will be fearful sights & great signs from heaven. But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues & prisons, and you will be brought before kings & rulers for my name`s sake....you will be betrayed....hated..... But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near.....And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the time of the Gentiles are fulfilled.` (Luke 21: 10 – 24) In 2018 Israel will celebrate their 70th anniversary as a nation & then in 2028 their 80th. After that the `fig tree generation,` would pass away, so there is only a short period of time in which the final Gentile Global Government can operate.
  11. Hi SwordMaster, Thank you for replying in such detail. Yes it would be one of the most difficult trials for someone. As I said preciously - `So to me you are in God`s extreme training arena. For to have a spouse treat one like that is a huge, trial, physically, emotionally & spiritually.` Now I see this from your OP - `My point is this, because of all the turmoil in the house now because of her switch "to the dark side" if you will, I cannot perform ministry as I could when she was standing beside me, ...` This looks like to me that `ministry outside the home is first.` Is that true? This `Worthy brief,` from this site came to me this morning & I immediately thought of you. So here is what George (the owner of this Worthy site, said - Jonah 3:1-2 Now the word of the Lord came to Jonah the second time, saying, "Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and preach to it the message that I tell you." 1 Corinthians 13:1-2 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. When the Lord gave Jonah a second chance, He didn't change His mind about the prophet's destination. He didn't lighten the load or change the burden Jonah was destined to carry. There was no negotiation with Jonah where the Lord expressed understanding about his reluctance to go to Nineveh. God didn't concede to send him to Tarshish just because he'd been heading in that direction anyway. Jonah's disobedience and repentance produced a clear and simple result: a second chance to do what he should have done the first time. But it was not just for Nineveh's sake. God cared for Jonah, just as He cared for Nineveh. If His concern was only about Nineveh, the Lord could have sent someone else for the task. But He definitely wanted Jonah to go, because He wanted to change and to soften the prophet's heart; to make him more like Himself... Jonah's identity and calling as a prophet by no means meant that God was finished shaping him. You may have a significant calling on your life; a "prophetic" or "pastoral" role, known as a leader, a man or woman of God. You may know His will, and His word. You may even have some level of intimacy with Him....but all this could also be a basis for presumption, self-righteousness, pride, distance from those less holy than you, and maybe even an unsuspected level of disobedience bordering on rebellion. Something profoundly important can be missing from your character... Marilyn, Jonah's experience is an excellent example of the Lord's desire to transform His faithful saints. The apostle Paul speaks in 1 Corinthians 13 of a "more excellent way". The preceding chapter, 1 Corinthians 12, is all about spiritual gifts; and Jonah was certainly gifted as a prophet. But what he lacked was of such great concern to God that He was willing to put Jonah into the most dire circumstances imaginable; because what Jonah lacked was a most essential characteristic of God's nature, the love we call "agape"..... the "love" which God Himself is. regards, Marilyn.
  12. Hi SwordMaster, Glad you got back to me. Thank you for even going through all those `Do you...`(which we all need to address regularly). Now what comes to mind is that somehow you have the wrong impression of ministry. God uses us wherever we are. So to me you are in God`s extreme training arena. For to have a spouse treat one like that is a huge, trial, physically, emotionally & spiritually. Yes you may have potential to minister out to others, however you need to see what God would require of you right now at home with your wife. Obviously you have tried all the things that usually draw another one. But...your wife, sounds like she`s hurt, (hurting people hurt) & has chosen to block you out & do things to annoy you. And only God can heal her. Meanwhile what do you do.....I suggest 1. that you take that `great expectation of ministry` out of the air. I`m sure your wife has felt that pressure. 2. You need to ask God to love you wife with Christ`s love. That is only possible by the Holy Spirit. It means to love another while they are hurting you. See 2 Peter 1: 1 - 8. There is a list of `add to`s..` & the final one is `love,` which of course is Christ`s love.` Not possible in our selves & thus we need to draw upon the Holy Spirit`s enabling. Obviously you have been `diligent, have self control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness,` but yet to reach the high mark of Christ`s love. Once you experienced that you will not be concerned so much with what your wife does (to irritate you) but will see her as Christ does, - a lost soul who is hurting, troubled & covering up all that pain by seeming to not care etc. regards, & still praying. Marilyn.
  13. THE GLOBAL GOVERNMENT The force of Islam will not reach its full potential till after the Russian war. This is when God brings the Russian Federation, plus Iran, Ethiopia & Libya, down to the mountains of Israel and there judges them. Most of the armies are wiped out. This will bring a power vacuum to the Middle East, without the Bear of the North or Iran dominating. It is then that this mediator of Islam arranges a peace treaty with Israel & his region, (Iraq, Syria & Jordan). Through cunning and deceit he gains power & credibility across the global scene. The other nations of Islam soon make him their leader & thus we see that he becomes the head of Islam and then the world. It is then that he changes from a peaceful mediator to a ruthless dictator. With the force of Islam behind him, he is able to `tread down` and have power and control over `the whole earth.` `...a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth, it was devouring, breaking in pieces and trampling the residue with its feet.` (Dan. 7: 7) `The fourth beast shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all other kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth.` (Dan. 7: 23) The Apostle John received revelation of this final Global Government and its composite makeup under Islam. `I, (John) saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on its horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power, his throne and great authority.` (Rev. 13: 1 & 2) This is a graphic representation of the `beastly` Global Government. The final Gentile World Ruler. It depicts the Super Powers of The Lion – The British Commonwealth & American Federation. The Leopard – The European Union. The Bear – the Russian Federation. These are all dominated by Islam, with its Messiah like figure & ten Islamic nations. Daniel shows us what will happen when God judges them. `I watched then because of the sound of the pompous words, which the horn was speaking; I watched till the beast was slain and its body destroyed and given to the burning flame. As for the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away, yet their lives were prolonged for a season & a time.` (Dan. 7: 11 & 12) Thus we see that the last Gentile World Government will be judged by God. The Super Powers of the British Commonwealth & America, the European Union, & the Russian federation will all be given an extension of `life` but their power and authority will be taken away.
  14. Hi SwordMaster, You do seem to have a full hand of difficulties. Now we know we cannot change others. God is about changing us. Yes I hear all the difficulties of what others are doing, BUT it is YOU that believes in God & it is YOU He is dealing with. Thus I would say ask the Lord what is something you can work on in your attitude. Do you come over critical? Do you Bible bash? Do you hold a grudge as you can`t do `your ministry?` Do you just give gifts to get something? Do you know what speaks to you wife? (not gifts, or affection, maybe words or actions of help around the house) Do you appreciate some things about her? Do you tell her? Do you always concentrate on the negative? I don`t know you but those `Do you...` are things we all can try to address in any relationship. Now are you `man enough` in the Lord to ask Him & let Him highlight areas in your life. As YOU change then I believe your wife will soften. it seems to me she has put up a wall against some of your attitudes. Praying for you & your family.
