  1. I have faith in the promises of our Lord and Savior, I have zero faith in the words of mankind.
  2. And you say I read into it... Ignoring some of the info does not make your take accurate. “We give thanks to You, O Lord God Almighty, the One who is and who was,b because You have taken Your great power and have begun to reign. 18The nations were enraged, and Your wrath has come. The time has come to judge the dead, and to reward Your servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear Your name, both small and great, and to destroy those who destroy the earth.” I don't know if you can see it but you have contradicted yourself. "Not here. Not at the 7th trumpet. " Then, "He begins reigning over the earth at the 7th trumpet." Just because some events were written down at some point in time does not have a bearing on when those events occurred, or will occur. If Revelation was strictly chronological there would be some where around 17 total years if one added up all the mentions of 3.5 years and held them to be strictly chronological. Since that isn't the case a strict chronology is untenable in one easily prove instance. And since the major markers of time in the book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ are not strictly chronological, then the whole of the book cannot be either. Of course. Doesn't insist on chronology however. Typically the conjunction 'and' means 'also' or it's an emphatic like 'indeed' and context dictates the definition. I do not know of an instance where 'and' means 'next' or 'following this' denoting a timeline. And you accuse others of reading into the text? No. That is a personal take to fit a personal interpretation. Scripture says no such thing, only Iamlamad says this. And? Your words are authoritative why? Who made you an authority? Why should anyone take your words or thoughts as the final judgement on the matter? Is it because you say you hear directly from Jesus? So what? We all do. What makes you a higher authority than all the other people who either hear Jesus speak to them or who claim Jesus speaks to them? Honestly, this sort of thing is the weakest link in all your arguments and only proves you'd be a good cult leader. Extant evidence to the contrary. "I discovered"... Arrogance. Conceit. Self promotion. I mean, how many times can you point to yourself in just a few sentences? "I, I, I, I..." Amazing! You think? Who cares? What does Jesus say? That's what matters. Is your valid reason to disagree your personal feelings that I'm wrong? I'll help you with that. I am wrong. Only what Jesus says is truth. Scripture saith...which is the word of our Lord Jesus Christ and the only reliable truth in existence. Scripture over the word of everyone else, period.
  3. I don't disagree. I have a great deal of difficulty with this as I find no support in scripture. Then the seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and loud voices called out in heaven: “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He will reign forever and ever.” If this is the case, and it is, then I very much doubt the reign of the beast is continuing, nor is the ministry of the two witnesses. The Lord has arrived and is set to reign and everyone else must bow to Him. So no, the seventh trump does not mark the midpoint, but the days of wrath well past the middle of the week. There isn't much to go on in Rev 11 about 'when' they arrive as no specific time is given. It's not necessary that Rev 11 events occur either before or after any particular event, simply because it's the 11th chapter. In what chapter we find an event has no bearing on the timing or duration or the order of any one or several events. Rev is NOT strictly chronological. It's more of a successive concurrent form of narrative. Only based on a less than accurate assumption Rev is written strictly chronologically. It makes more sense for the two witnesses to arrive at the moment the covenant is confirmed to warn the world about what is coming. The prophesying is far too late once the beast takes power and declares himself god. Logic refutes the ministry of the witnesses in the second half of the week as the ministry must last 1260 days, which would put two of God's people in the great and terrible wrath of the Almighty, which according to God's own words will not happen, and cannot happen.
  4. I'm instantly skeptical the links will provide the truth.
  5. If the passage has no bearing on chronology then why quote the earthquake event as proof of chronology for a non chronological parenthetical? Fact is we'll need more info than mere belief.
  6. Point being it's not the only way. It's what you believe to be the case which may or may not turn out to be accurate. Because the question is asked shows awe, fear and admiration of the beast in the eyes of the people; all based on the healing of a deadly head wound and the power and authority given to the beast by the dragon. This alone no doubt conquers the minds and hearts of a great many people from slaves to kings, without firing a single bullet.
  7. That isn't totally true. In history there are examples where the threat of war has led to capitulation; WWII gives examples of this. A kingdom can be subdued though economic means or restricting resources and the leader gives in to feed his people. I think in your example of subduing 'three kings' it is probably military action, but it may not be as it's not the only way.
  8. The rise of the beast begins the last week. The revealing of the beast occurs at the midpoint. The arrival of the two witnesses coincide with the rise of the beast and they are killed by the beast at the midpoint, when the beast is revealed and is given power to 'continue' 42 months.

    Peace Plan

    Interesting points. I agree with the Islam thing, scripture points us in that direction. Why is it that Ezekiel 38-39 isn't what is called Armageddon in your opinion? I believe I'm convinced that it is, but not yet dogmatic, for a few reasons: Ezekiel 38 In My zeal and fiery rage I proclaim that on that day there will be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. The fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the beasts of the field, every creature that crawls upon the ground, and all mankind on the face of the earth will tremble at My presence. The mountains will be thrown down, the cliffs will collapse, and every wall will fall to the ground. Rev 6 ...every mountain and island was moved from its place. Then the kings of the earth, the nobles, the commanders, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and free man, hid in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains. And they said to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of the One seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb. For the great day of Their wrath has come, and who is able to withstand it?” Ezekiel 38 And I will summon a sword against Gog on all My mountains, declares the Lord GOD, and every man’s sword will be against his brother. I will execute judgment upon him with plague and bloodshed. I will pour out torrents of rain, hailstones, fire, and brimstone on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. I will magnify and sanctify Myself, and will reveal Myself in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the LORD. Rev 6 Then every island fled, and no mountain could be found. And huge hailstones, about a hundred pounds each, rained down on them from above. And men cursed God for the plague of hail, because it was so horrendous. Ezekiel 39 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down [any] out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD. Among other things, it's hard to imagine this occurring before the end of the last week. When the beast takes over whoever is in Judea will flee and the rest will be forced to convert or die. Since the flight of Judea terminates in the wilderness, many think Petra in Jordan there may not be any in the cites of Israel to go out and gather the weapons of war. If the beast is taking over at this time and he has his armies in place strengthening the covenant there seems to be a problem with burning the weapons for 7 years.

    Peace Plan

    Correct. "Peace Plan" is probably a misnomer as it's not suggested in scripture. I think it's laid out here: "Therefore hear the word of the Lord, you scoffers who rule this people in Jerusalem. You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death, with the realm of the dead we have made an agreement. When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, it cannot touch us, for we have made a lie our refuge and falsehood our hiding place.” - Isaiah 28 It's not for peace as much as protection from what the Jews know is coming.

    Yes. And I have heard imams support a Temple in Israel. Al Jazeera reported this last year if memory serves. After the new Israeli elections is the latest. Yes, exciting isn't it?

    Peace Plan

    The unveiling of the peace plan awaits the election. Greenblatt has left the WH. In all likelihood this plan will not be the one the ushers in the beast at this time. It seems that an existing covenant is confirmed by the one who is the beast, and not by the original author or statesman drafting or presenting the plan. No doubt there will many objections on both sides. But I have heard there is great economic prosperity for the Palestinian people offered in this plan. (bribes, it sound like to me) It will be interesting to see if a Temple for the Jews is part of this plan.
  13. I binged watched it several weeks ago. Fascinating to see it all come to light. Not a new thing certainly.
  14. Encouragement. Exhortation. That will impart knowledge and vision of what's coming, the rewards and consequences. Forewarned is forearmed.
  15. Wow. The OP doesn't sound anti Israel at all. Or tense. Or angry.
