    The 1260 and 1290/1335 Days

    This pdf explains how I view the 1260, 1290, and 1335 day chronology. I agree that the time of great tribulation, as it affects believers, will be short. I don't see it as 40 days though, more on the order of 110 days. The reason I go with 110 days is because the remainder of the 1260 days is for cleansing the temple (2300 sacrifices or 1150 days). I'm willing to clarify things but I'm not going to argue about it. There are bigger fish to fry.

    The Mystery of the Mark

    And he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six. Revelation 13:17-18 According to this passage, 666 is a function of the name of the beast. It is derived from his name. I don't think it will be a function of his natural given name (Nero, etc.), but rather some spiritual descriptor (son of perdition, etc.) that speaks to his nature. That's why it takes wisdom and understanding. Not only that (since "do what I say under the penalty of death" laws aren't new) but also the buying and selling aspect, and not to mention the amazing signs and wonders that deceive the world. It should be obvious who he is to those who haven't fallen asleep, which makes we wonder why we need to calculate it ahead of time if indeed we are supposed to know ahead of time.

    The Mystery of the Mark

    One thing to keep in mind whenever wisdom or understanding is called for is that it is most always a reference to a spiritual truth. There are numerous examples of Jesus teaching new covenant spiritual truths that the disciples tried to understand in natural terms. Examples are being born again (John 3:4-10), what defiles a person (Matt 15:17-18), leaven of the Pharisees (Matt 16:11-12), etc. While the false prophet (beast from the earth) is a man, what identifies him uniquely (666) is to be understood spiritually.
  4. For now, people can believe whatever they want to believe about the future events of the latter days. However, once the birth pangs of war begin and those days shift into high gear, it won't matter if we were right or wrong. What will matter is that we hold to the testimony of Jesus and persevere to the end. No believer ever has been, or will be absolved of that responsibility. Take care, brethren, that there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart that falls away from the living God. But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called “Today,” so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our assurance firm until the end. Hebrews 3:12-14 Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. Matthew 24:12-13 You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. Mark 13:13 We've been told ahead of time what to expect for a reason. Let us stir up one another to love and good works as a countermeasure to the deceitfulness of sin.

    Defense of the Post-Trib / Pre-Wrath Position

    According to scripture, the rapture happens at the last trumpet, on the last day. Any understanding of the timing of the rapture has to account for those aspects. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:52 For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day. John 6:40 Those who approach the subject honestly will give precedence to these two clearly stated scriptural timings. What is the last trumpet that Paul was referencing? What is the last day that Jesus was speaking of? It only makes sense to start with the "known" when trying to figure out the "unknown." Last trumpet, last day. That's when the rapture takes place.

    Why so much disagreement on the start of THE DAY?

    For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness. 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 This passage directly contradicts the idea of a "great revival." People who believe what is false do not become martyrs for the truth.
  8. Exactly that. And if he truly believes it, why is he still around?

    VERY Strange!

    Do you think that 5G fits the bill as the platform for "buying and selling" that will eventually come under the false prophet's control? I've always viewed current technologies as too insecure or vulnerable to serve as such a platform and have been expecting something new. With the name "5G" it sounds like it's just the next iteration of wireless (3G, 4G, 5G) but from what I've read, it seems to require a significant amount of infrastructure change. I guess it's more innocuous sounding to call it 5G than "one wireless to rule them all".

    Very true. This parable sums it up nicely. And He began telling this parable: “A man had a fig tree which had been planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and did not find any. And he said to the vineyard-keeper, ‘Behold, for three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree without finding any. Cut it down! Why does it even use up the ground?’ And he answered and said to him, ‘Let it alone, sir, for this year too, until I dig around it and put in fertilizer; and if it bears fruit next year, fine; but if not, cut it down.’” Luke 13:6-9 Which is stated more succinctly here: Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Matthew 7:19

    Something worth keeping in mind as we observe.
  12. Hi Marilyn, I enjoyed the interaction as well. I'm always more interested in the rationale behind what someone thinks than the actual conclusion. I've been reflecting on your view of Revelation 8:3 which I hadn't considered before I think it's accurate and I wonder how it might relate to the seven angels with the trumpets being the seven spirits of God, if at all. Thanks for taking the time to elaborate. Blessings sister.

    Tribulation is not Wrath

    Things were intentionally hidden then. "Getting it right" is not the ultimate objective. Knowing and doing the will of God is.
