    The context of 1 Thess 5:1

    Something to consider: If the horn or beast were a man, what's the purpose of stating that he has eyes like a man? And why would it say that he possessed a mouth? Wouldn't that be a foregone conclusion? The beast of Revelation 13: There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him. It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. Revelation 13:5, 7a The fourth beast of Daniel 7: And behold, this horn possessed eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth uttering great boasts. I kept looking, and that horn was waging war with the saints and overpowering them. And they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time. Daniel 7:8b,21,25b There is most certainly a tie-in between the the fourth beast of Daniel 7 and the beast from the sea in Revelation 13. They both wage war with the saints for the same length of time and at the end of their stint are thrown into the fire. The question is . . . who is the little / big horn and who serves as his eyes and mouth?

    I agree, but that platform has been used to push the globalist agenda.

    I was just reflecting on the letter to Thyatira and see a connection between Babylon the Mother of Harlots and Jezebel the harlot. Spiritual Babylon promotes unfaithfulness toward God among the human race. Those who listen to her are her offspring, Jezebel. We were warned about an increasing number of Jezebels in the church as the return of our Lord draws near. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. Matthew 24:5 This verse is not describing those who claim to be a Christ of sorts, although that will happen. No one comes in a person's name and then claims to be that person. That just doesn't make sense. This verse is talking about people who acknowledge that Jesus is the Christ (in order to open the door) but deceive many. The warning to the church at Thyatira is particularly relevant today and will become more-so.

    The timing of the 6th seal

    [sarc] [/sarc] Just to clarify.
  5. Hi Marilyn, There's no rush. I hope your trip is going well. I thought I answered your question in the last post with the scriptures I quoted. To summarize, the Holy Spirit guides the body of Christ in the truths of the teachings of Jesus. He doesn't speak on His own initiative but works to assimilate the truth of Jesus' teachings into our lives. I really don't see the need for anything beyond that in order to address Ephesians 4:13.

    The context of 1 Thess 5:1

    The beast from the sea with 10 horns in Daniel 7, the beast from the sea in Revelation 13, and the beast from the abyss in Revelation 17 are all the same evil spirit being. Just because they aren't described identically in each instance doesn't make them different. Their descriptions are relevant to the context in which they are described. If we are to take each mention as a completely separate instance then there would be 21 heads and 40 horns between the dragon and the mentions of the beast. In Daniel 7, we see the beast with ten horns, presumably one head, and no crowns. The focus is on the 10 horns and the little horn who ripped three of them out by the roots and became the big horn who waged war against the saints for 42 months. In Revelation 13, the beast with 10 horns has crowns on the horns to indicate, like you said, that he is over the 10 kings. He is also pictured with seven heads that he didn't have before in Daniel 7. The seven heads come from Satan indicate that he has received Satan's power and throne. The rest of his appearance in Revelation 13 (leopard, bear, lion) can be traced back to the other beasts in Daniel 7. The inference is that the other evil spirit beasts of Daniel 7 have given their power and authority to this beast too. The context of Revelation 13 is to show the interplay between the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet. Have you ever wondered why Satan would give his power, throne, and great authority to anyone, ever? The best I can surmise is that Satan puts this evil spirit beast in charge temporarily while he enters the false prophet for the purpose of performing the amazing signs and wonders that deceive the world. This is supported by the fact that the false prophet "speaks like a dragon" and it wouldn't be the first time that Satan entered the son of perdition. In Revelation 17, the mystery of the harlot and the beast who carries her is explained. There's no need to mention crowns. We know that the beast described here is the same beast in Revelation 13 because of this verse: The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour. These have one purpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast. Revelation 17:12-13 Although the word "crowns" isn't used, this passage describes perfectly what the crowns represent, so "crowns" can be easily implied. The reference to the beast being an 8th king is used because the United Nations has no real "king" so he is considered the defacto leader of that global government until the man of sin comes along and Satan enters him and the fireworks begin. I do agree that Satan is pictured as having 10 horns because he is the leader of it all. There are only 7 heads and 10 horns. The seven heads are Satan's and represent his power, throne and great authority as demonstrated in the kingdoms you mentioned. The ten horns belong to the beast and are subservient to him as the verse above indicates.

    The context of 1 Thess 5:1

    This is something that a lot of people miss. If you notice the placement of the crowns on the dragon, they're on his 7 heads. On the beast, they are on his 10 horns. The beast with 10 horns (Daniel 7) is pictured in Revelation 13 with the additional 7 heads of Satan to reflect that Satan gave to the beast his power, throne and great authority. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority. Revelation 13:2b The reason why the beast with 10 horns in Daniel 7 is pictured as also having 7 heads in Revelation 13 is that it reflects the above verse. The seven heads of Satan are his power and his throne, as the crowns indicate.

    Escaping the Trap

    The descriptors that I find associated with the day of the Lord include: destruction wrath anger darkness I can't find anything in scripture that portrays the day of the Lord as being a time of entrapment or a snare.

    The timing of the 6th seal

    Revelation 4 & 5 are there to establish the worthiness of the Lamb to open the seals, not provide some chronological continuation of the seven letters per se. Otherwise, where was the Lamb when this question was asked? And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the book and to break its seals?” And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the book or to look into it. Revelation 5:2 If the Lamb was around when that question was asked, then where was He?

    Escaping the Trap

    “Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day will not come on you suddenly like a trap; for it will come upon all those who dwell on the face of all the earth. But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.” Luke 21:34-36 A couple of questions about this passage: What day is it that will come suddenly like a trap? What does it mean to escape, or flee from, all those things? I think the day or time being referred to begins with the abomination of desolation which quickly leads to the "worship or die" ultimatum associated with the image. That trap will force everyone to make a life or death decision quickly, and it affects everyone on the face of the earth. Having strength to escape, or being considered worthy to escape, is in contrast with how that passage begins. To paraphrase, "Don't get wrapped up in the ways of the world but pray for strength to flee from the trap." In other words, don't become spiritually lazy. Instead, remain vigilant. Walk in obedience to the truth. Otherwise, you run the risk of succumbing to the trap. One more question that each person can answer to themselves, "Are you praying as Jesus instructs in that passage?" If not, why not?

    When Wrath Begins

    That hasn't been determined yet. We may see things differently but that doesn't mean I'm wrong. I explained this in an earlier post. When you look at Matthew 24:29-31 you'll see that people see two things. The sign of the Son of Man, and the Son of Man. Nowhere in the sixth seal does it indicate that people see the Son of Man Himself, only the sign thereof. So, it's randomly put there? Sandwiched between two verses concerning Armageddon? Hmmm. Steve, these details will work themselves out. We have no control over how they will come to pass. The only thing we have control over is how we are going to respond when the great tribulation comes about. Consequently, I try to emphasize preparedness. I'm not driven by the need to be affirmed, and I don't think you are either. We both realize that difficult times are coming for all believers. If the rapture happens at the sixth seal, that'll be just fine. I don't really expect to make it past the fifth seal anyway. I'm just sharing how I see things playing out. Preparedness is paramount. We can compare notes for accuracy when its all said and done, if we'll even care to at that point. Blessings brother.

    And since the 24 elders were there before the Lamb was, its chronologically impossible for them to represent the church.

    When Wrath Begins

    No, the elect don't suffer the wrath of God in a post trib rapture. Most will be martyred but those who reject and somehow evade the mark / image will be kept from the hour of testing per Revelation 3:10. The word of His perseverance is to reject the mark and image. The time of testing is the plagues. Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Revelation 3:10 The "worship or die" ultimatum of the image will segregate the prepared believers from the ill-prepared believers. The prepared believers will love not their lives even unto death. The ill-prepared believers will be deceived by the signs and wonders and will face God's judgment of their idolatry, the plagues. The corrective discipline of the plagues is God's last call to repentance before He returns to destroy the wicked. Only those who persist in worshiping the image and utilizing the mark will receive of the plagues. When all who are going to repent have done so, the wrath of God which is contained in the bowls, is poured out. The plagues will segregate the repentant from the hard-hearted. No person who repents of their sin will experience the wrath of God, neither will anyone who initially rejects the mark and the image (although most will be martyred).

    The context of 1 Thess 5:1

    I'm not going to consider the words of someone who claims he's infallible and berates those who disagree with him. Period. I hope no one else does either. That's the kind of behavior that spawns cults. Only the word of God is infallible.

    The context of 1 Thess 5:1

    I could make the same claims and say the same about you. So what? That proves nothing. Your incessant need to proclaim yourself as the superior, infallible one is a huge tell that speaks loudly of a serious deficiency. Maybe its you who's not called to prophecy, that maybe you just think you are. You really need to ask yourself why you feel the need to repeatedly assert yourself as infallible and talk down to others. Something's wrong there.
