  1. Faith isn't just believing a fact or even proving a fact. It's about coming to a conclusion. The world says faith is blind, but the word of God said it's the substance and the evidence of what is not visible. Everything observable is temporary and a shadow according to the word of God. Only light casts shadows. If everything visible is a shadow and the word of God says that He is light, then this isn't real and the spirit realm is real. Hence the "Let there be light" isn't visible light (that happened on day four), and God separated the Dark from the Light, makes the physical (Dark) which was separated from the Spiritual (Light). We know that prayer changes things and things change prayers. In other words, by the word of God, hearing it increases faith, and faith manifests in the physical. Therefore, faith is the substance and the evidence for what we hope to obtain. Yet, there is a cause and effect, Due 28. Keep your search, apples to apples and not apples to oranges.
  2. While we know these things WILL happen, what I’m doing here is speculating on HOW it could happen. The reason is that since I started doing this, I’m seeing just how destructive the Tribulation will be and how Isaiah 13:12 will happen: Isaiah 13:12 I will make people more rare than fine gold, even a person than the pure gold of Ophir. One verse doesn’t negate another verse since these events are happening one after the other creating accumulative effects. Thankfully, because of studying God’s creation we are able to speculate due to observations and witnessing events like the Shoemaker-Levy comet in 1994. https://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/sl9 Remember in Revelation, a lot is going on, so a statement may be for only an unspecified period of time. One event does not negate another event. That is if you look at the events just surrounding the sun alone you have: Revelation 6:12 - Seal I saw when he opened the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake. The sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became as blood. So, the earthquake causes the sun to turn black and the moon to blood, which indicates that the event happens and by the time the night rolls around the atmosphere clears out enough to see the moon be blood. If you can't see the sun, you would not be able to see the moon, so the implications are that the event happens during the day to blacken the sun for a while. Also, "whole moon" can indicate that it was around the 15th of the month whenever the event occurs because that's when there's a full moon. Also, the 9.0 earthquake in Japan shortened the day and change the axis. https://www.nasa.gov/topics/earth/features/japanquake/earth20110314.html Indeed, this event only changed it by microseconds, what will a “great earthquake” do. Revelation 8:12 - Trumpet The fourth angel sounded, and one third of the sun was struck, and one third of the moon, and one third of the stars; so that one third of them would be darkened, and the day wouldn’t shine for one third of it, and the night in the same way. Then you have the aforementioned event where you have one third of everything darkened, and one third of the day and night, which are time-bound indicators. The only explanation is that the earth's rotation spins up, thereby understanding that it is not the size of the sun and moon made smaller by one third, but only visible one third less as stated. Why/how would this happen? Two prior events hit the earth from space: Rev 8:8 "burning mountain", Rev 8:9 "star falls" as well as the great earthquake causes the accumulation effect of rotation spun up. To do this they both hit west to east because looking at the north pole from space, the earth rotates counter-clockwise, thereby shortening the length of time the earth sees the sun and the moon by one third. Revelation 9:2 - Locus from the Pit He opened the pit of the abyss, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke from a burning furnace. The sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke from the pit. So, here's a star hitting the earth that releases the locus and not only darkens the sun but the air as well. The recent California fires blotted out the sun and later then moon was blood. https://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-ln-california-fires-smoke-20181116-story.html And then the air cleared. This is likely how some of the events will have the sun/moon darkened, and then darkened again and again. Revelation 16:8 The fourth poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was given to him to scorch men with fire. If the sun is scorching due to the earth being closer to the sun or is stuck facing the sun, this happened to Joshua so it could happen again which is possible because the other side of the plant would remain in a painful darkness. Since the sun is a type of antiseptic, https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2018/10/18/658335490/grandma-was-right-sunshine-helps-kill-germs-indoors it could be that from the mark of the beast those soars from the first bowl (Rev 16:2) become worse in the darkness. The first judgements begin on earth with the arrival of the antichrist and then war, famine, pestilences and death. One fourth of the earth, 7*.25 = 1.75 billion, people will die. Talk about a world war. With that much death and destruction if must be nuclear, 2 Peter 2:12. Then the fabric of space is snapped back (since it’s been stretching for six millennia, Psa 104:2, Job 26:7, Isa 40:22; 44:24; 51:13, Jer 10:12; 51:15) revealing Jesus on His throne, Rev 6:16. Since the fabric of space is ripped, now we can understand why the physical assault from space upon the earth. What would cause the earth to not have any wind? No wind, no clouds, no rain, Rev 11:6. I know there’s a lot here, but if we try to see how Revelation is written with these literal events happening, it’s not a hard thing to understand. The rest of the word of God helps us understand these events and how it’s impossible we’re in any point other than just prior.
  3. Thanks for your kind words. I believe the literalness of the word of God and acknowledge that there are analogies and metaphors, but by and large, it's literal in its meaning. edit: I asked what you thought of my first posting and forgot I removed it because of others. Here's a start: Revelation 8:12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. I came across this verse once and thought "how can three physical things be compared to two time-bound things?" Well, to see the sun, moon, and stars 1/3 less AND have 1/3 less day and 1/3 less night would indicate that the earth's rotation would need to increase by 8 hours thereby making the day and night 1/3 less, or in other words, a 16-hour instead of 24-hour rotation cycle. It makes sense when you take into account Isaiah 24:20-23 when the earth is knocked out of its orbit. Howso? The three mountains/star that hit the earth in Revelation.
  4. Thanks for this!! If people were to actually believe the word of God, then the tribulation is not something that started in the 1950s but something dreadful coming. You could combine every end-of-the-world movie into one and still not get close to what is coming. The earth is knocked out of its orbit which one can only speculate what that'll do to the moon! The earth's rotation will also be sped up to complete one rotation in 16 hours rather than 24 hours. Though scientists use the words "fabric" of time and space, won't they be surprised when the heavens are rolled up like a scroll! "OH NO!!!! LOOK!!! JESUS ON HIS THRONE!!! RUUUUUUUUUUN!" The utter foolishness of those that dismiss the word of God and do not believe God. Lament!
  5. Hide your buttons. Seriously, the devil is the one that knows your buttons and finds those willing to push them. A little bit there, a little bit here, and then the button pusher shows up and puts you over the edge. The key is to not let the spirit of harassment key you up all day. Finally, love the button pusher since they don't understand the issue. Love covers a multitude of sins.
  6. Actually, there is a cause and effect all throughout history. It's a good thing your humble opinion doesn't mean anything next to the word of God which is 100% accurate and still ongoing. BTW Rome ended twice!
  7. This also happens with the naming of the priestly order by David, 1 Chronicles 23.

  8. I've not had the time to watch the video, but if the conclusion is that it's south of the "Temple Mount" then they're correct. The word of God says the Temple was in the City of Zion or the City of David.
  9. No offense, but that's stinking thinking. We are in charge now having the power over the enemy through Jesus. We are already seated in the heavenly places in Christ. Ephesians 2:5-6 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
  10. Here you go: 2 Timothy 3:1-9 But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men corrupted in mind and disqualified regarding the faith. But they will not get very far, for their folly will be plain to all, as was that of those two men. Romans 1:21-32 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God's righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.
  11. I live by miracles, don't you? With all of God's promises throughout His word and you don't claim any of them? I'm not passing judgment, I didn't claim them for 20 years. After I got out of the churchy-churchy garbage, I learned the truth. This is NOT NOT NOT the "name-and-claim-it" garbage. That's the work of the devil so you don't believe in God's promises when you don't have a Ferrari show up in the driveway, but the "church" pastor does. God is not a Genie granting out every whim, James 4:2. The first place to start is Deuteronomy 28. There is a cause and effect, just like God's promise to Abraham that's alive and well today, Genesis 12:3.
  12. "Church" starts in the mirror and is propagated in the living room. In other words, start a home church and study Genesis 1 and continue until Revelation 22. The Holy Spirit will help, 1 John 2:27. The real church, are Christians. Find some and lead some. We are all to be ambassadors and are to bring people to God.
  13. Complete hogwash! Everything I said is scriptural. I just left off the thees and thous. I'm sorry you can't see it. Get with the times and speak the lingo people can understand instead of the churchy-churchy buzzwords no one can understand. Our job is to reconcile non-believers with God and keeping the buzzwords doesn't work. Latin works really good. All that does and show others you're part of some exclusive club that you can't join unless you learn the buzzwords - or Latin. Infuriating how legalistic and loveless people can be!
  14. Thanks for the kind words. As to #5, this article just came out: https://www.cnet.com/news/universe-is-expanding-faster-than-we-thought-and-no-one-knows-why/ The answer is that it's about to snap back. When you overstretch something it'll rip and snap back like a rubber band. The word of God says this is going to happen. Isaiah 34:4 All of the army of the sky will be dissolved. The sky will be rolled up like a scroll, and all its armies will fade away, as a leaf fades from off a vine or a fig tree. Revelation 6:14 The sky was removed like a scroll when it is rolled up. Every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
  15. 1. If God is good, why is there evil in this world? Free will - choice. God gave us dominion over the earth. The evil that continues is because of man. As such, a man asked God, "Why so much suffering and pain on earth?" and Jesus said, "Funny! I was going to ask you the same question." 2. I`m a good person, so why do I have to accept Jesus to go to heaven? Bad eggs in flour make bad bread. We are born tainted, so there is no "good person;" see the first question. 3. If God is so loving, why would He send someone to hell? God sends no one to hell. It's their choice. Jesus died paying for our penalty of sin (death), but we choose to not to believe and accept the free gift. 4. How do you know that God is real? How do you know He's not real? Proof of His existence is everywhere. One only need to seek Him out and have a teachable heart. 5. What about evidence in the Universe for the Big Bang? The Big Bang is a scientific explanation against what the word of God says. The word of God says that the universe is like a fabric stretched out. Science is extrapolating what is visible rather than knowing all the conditions at Creation. Scientists are trying to reverse engineer the universe which is like a one-year-old child reverse engineer a Ferrari. 6. Why did God create this world? For His pleasure. Why do you write music or paint a picture or write a poem? 7. Who created God? God isn't temporary like us, the created, so He has always been. No beginning, no end. 8. Why can't you prove there is a God? The proof is everywhere. What is the proof you seek? Adam was sinless and walked and talked with God, yet Adam still did not believe God. King David had all he could ever want and yet he was a murderer after God calling him the apple of His eye. Proof of God is not what you seek. One has to believe in the possibility of something in order to discover it. Only a teachable heart can find the truth. 9. Why do you say homosexuality is wrong? Because it causes confusion. The same goes for fornication and bestiality. The homosexuality of the 1980s birthed the genderless push of today. Confusion and chaos. 10. What is "sin"? To miss the mark as in arrows and target. A means of measuring that comes up short. You need a gallon, but you only have a quart. You owe $100 and you only have $1. Salvation is where God came to give you not $99, but $1 trillion.
