    Why Pretrib Logic Fails

    False witness if someone told you that. She was better versed and true to Scripture than anyone you know.

    Why Pretrib Logic Fails

    No. Corrie ten Boom warned the churches about this deception decades ago. So did the Chinese Pastors longer ago. It is "false comfort", deceiving, and does not prepare (nor even tell nor admit to) anyone what they are going to have to go through.

    Why Pretrib Logic Fails

    Probably ... ... ... not. Search for the (very major) difference between (in Scripture) the bride of Christ, and the body of Christ. Few , apparently, find out or know.

    Will we ever get to this place , this as law .

    Rather, have you prayed ? Prayer is better, honest, righteous and more powerful than any of man's weapons. The Jews and the gentiles (believers) who were helped escape Hitler did as they were permitted (by God) : they fled as they were able, and when caught often without resistance offered their 'necks' / (lives), without resistance.

    The abomination that causes desolation

    How do the Ekklesia(ONLY the Ekklesia) see Jesus High and Lifted Up ? And His Train Fills the Temple.... Isaiah 6:1 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord ... In the year that king Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple. New American Standard 1977 In the year of King Uzziah's death, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple. https://www.biblehub.com/isaiah/6-1.htm

    The abomination that causes desolation

    Who does destroy the enemy and all the evil forces of the enemy ? He who is Righteous and True, that's who. Who do the blameless saints pray to (in the Apocalypse) earnestly crying to come quickly and EXECUTE HIS VENGEANCE/Destroy/ upon the enemy over all the earth, throughout history (shedding innocent blood since Abel) ?

    How often shall we forgive?

    Wow, 3 Billion Dollars vs 3 dollars! What a debt ! Freedom in Forgiveness in Truth in God's Word ! Rather rare in the world today, the world full of self-importance and pride. (and repentance?) ..... We need to repent ourselves, and forgive others if we want to be forgiven.

    Evidence VS. Proof

    Rather what is the reality of your purpose (or what you think it is), for whoever rejects the Word of Yahweh, or whoever rejects Jesus, or whoever rejects His messengers, has also rejected Yahweh.

    Evidence VS. Proof

    1 Chronicles 28:9And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever. =============================================== Hebrews 3:12,18,19 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God… Hebrews 4:2,6 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it… Numbers 14:11 And the LORD said unto Moses, How long will this people provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?

    MATTHEW 6:15 IF YE FORGIVE NOT

    It is very simple. The Word of Yahweh says plainly and simply that if someone does not forgive another, then their own sin will not be forgiven. Period. How did the parable go ? A man guilty of stealing millions of dollars cries for mercy, and receives it, temporarily. Then, the same man throws another man in jail for not repaying a debt of 2 dollars !!!!!! What happens then ? Pride and Defensiveness are plainly evident**, in refusing to forgive (and in refusing to accept correction from God's Word) , and in hearing a voice that is not God that presumably is agreeing not to forgive. i.e. the spirits were not tested, so it was accepted as if it was God, though it was opposed to God's Word. This , btw, is very common in the world. **not just in this thread/ topic; but in others forgotten now, out of memory, btw.

    Good question, at first glance. But really, it doesn't matter what the definition is in this case. It's like epic fail already - New International Version And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. New Living Translation And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him. English Standard Version And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

    Evidence VS. Proof

    Think about it. The Creator of all the universe, and all life, forever , who fills the universe every bit and more for eternity - no one can even comprehend Him , not even a fraction. No one can even prove to you you are alive. Or what the spirit of a man is when the man is alive in Christ. So how would anyone prove acceptably to you what you cannot see is truth, and more than that, life and death depends on Him ? Go try and find REAL Christians within 50 miles of your home. Or anywhere in the world. (and PROVE they are true). You will be most blessed if you can find just ten. (Yahweh said He would spare sodom and gomorrah if there were even only ten righteous there. There were not. Perhaps London is next ? Or New York ? or New Orleans ? Or Japan ? Did you even ever say / post / what it is you are seeking in life ? Or why you apparently had a false avatar for so long ?

    How will the Holy Spirit work during the Millenium?

    Revelation 20:7-10 New International Version (NIV)The Judgment of Satan7 When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—and to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. 9 They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. 10 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever. ============================================== "i. The Millennium is important because it will demonstrate Jesus' victory and worthiness to rule the nations. ii. The Millennium is important because it will reveal the depths of man's rebellious nature in a perfect environment. Some people seem to believe that man is basically good, and deep down he really wants God's righteous rule. Many believe that man is really innocent, and corrupted only by a bad environment. The Millennium will answer these questions before the great judgment (Revelation 20:11-15). iii. The Millennium is important because it will display the eternal depravity of Satan, who continues his evil as soon as he is released from his incarceration. iv. The Millennium is important because it will show the invulnerability of the city of God and God's new order... " quotes from : https://www.blueletterbible.org/comm/guzik_david/studyguide_rev/rev_20.cfm "... ... ... ii. In this we see more of the important reason God has for the Millennial Kingdom and allowing this final rebellion. For all of human history, man has wanted to blame his sinful condition on his environment. "Of course I turned out the way I did. Did you see the family I came from? Did you see the neighborhood I grew up in?" With the Millennial Kingdom of Jesus, God will give mankind a thousand years of a perfect environment - with no Satan, no crime, violence, evil, or other social pathology. But at the end of the 1,000 years, man will still rebel against God at his first opportunity. This will powerfully demonstrate that the problem is in us, not only in our environment. iii. "It will be proved once more that man, whatever his advantages and environment, apart from the grace of God and new birth, remains at heart only evil and at enmity with God." (Hoste) b. Gather them together to battle: Who will these rebels be? They will be those who survive the Great Tribulation, enter into the Millennial Kingdom, and their descendants. "Infants born during the millennium will live to its conclusion and will not be required to make a choice between the devil and Christ until the end." (Walvoord)... " "... ... ... C. The final battle after the thousand-year reign of Jesus. 1. (Rev 20:7-8) Satan is released and gathers an army. Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea.

    How will the Holy Spirit work during the Millenium?

    Actually, Ekklesia are mentioned, described, referred to, "instructed by the angel", and present in the Apocalypse, but the "church" is not mentioned at all. Because it is usually mistranslated as 'church' in a few places, people often make this same mistake for centuries now. Also
