  1. Hi iamlamad Nah, read it again, my friend. Lot left the city on the same day the fire came down. Noah boarded the ark on the same day the rain came down. Very simple. Jesus said it will be just like this....it isn't going to happen "before" the Day of fiery on the Earth judgment in the future either.
  2. Hi WilliamL Thanks for the excruciating info. In another post I mentioned how there are, in key places , certain translation troubles that cause problems. This is one of them. One thing that the word studies don't show is something known to translators yet almost never addressed. We see this in Hebrew and ancient Greek- an absence of punctuation marks. In this case in Daniel there need to be some excruciating parentheses to keep it minimalistic. Here is what I mean: Take Dan 9:26 and look at where the subject changes...after the word "himself" the focus turns to other events. So from that point to the end of the verse there should be parentheses because it is a sub topic. The same applies to the next verse. After the word "cease" the topic changes again as a continuation of the parenthetical portion of the previous verse. Its just the way some people (or in this case some angels) talk. It isn't "linear" (again). BTW the same is true in a part of Revelation, which I could point to as well if you like, because without the proper reading it causes impossible outcomes.
  3. Hi missmuffet I understand your position on the 7 yr. tribulation. but the 7 yr. teaching is unsupported by the bible. People get that by believing a misreading of Dan. 7. And if you look at the trumpets and vials in Revelation, you'll see that they repeat the same judgments, while the seals are an overview of the same period. We would need to have the mountains and islands be moved out of their places twice, darkness/sun referred to twice, Euphrates referred to twice, and so on. Jesus taught using as illustrations the stories of Noah and lot. In both cases NOBODY was removed until the day that God's judgment came down out of the sky. That will be at the end. And then Jesus said "...it will be just like this when the Son of Man is revealed".
  4. Ok I see that the difference may be that I consider v. 27 referring to Jesus at the one who confirms the covenant and am assuming you do not Dan 9:27- And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: (covenant/testament) Matt 26:28- For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. This goes back to Abraham so that all families of the Earth would be blessed. That is how the covenant was strengthened/confirmed.
  5. Hello WilliamL Nice work, I am in agreement about the term "time of the end" that does not mean the events of Revelation in these passages. I have found a number of key places where a translation difficulty results in a misunderstanding of prophecy. These phrases are simply talking about the end of the events in the vision Daniel had been shown in ch.8. Then we go into visions about the Greeks in ch 11. Yet ch. 9 goes well beyond these times and can calculate to the time of Jesus. That chapter does not demand the city be destroyed within the 70 weeks. (I believe the 70th week is past BTW) AND ch 12 goes forward to the time when people rise from the dust of the Earth. Knowing that the events of Antiochus were past, Jesus speaks of an abomination of desolation being in an upcoming future time from His point in history. Saying that it would be seen in the Holy Place. Would you then consider it still future?
  6. Actually you are mistaken in this. You are confusing "escape" with avoidance. Jesus did not say "avoid", nobody escapes anything unless they are IN it. Check local prisons etc. This is why we see people in Rev 7 in a great multitude of believers from all nations that went through it. Then in the case of the elders (angels), they are the ones singing. They cannot lie and claim to be from all nations, there only 24 of them. And most of the translations do not say, you have redeemed US, but you have redeemed people/persons from all nations etc.
  7. Nice..."a day with the Lord is as a thousand years..." And I have often said-this true, and here on earth a day is still a day,and a thousand years is still a thousand years. "He inhabeteth eternity..." meaning in His presence there is no passage of time. Additionally, as with Noah and Lot God's people weren't delivered until the day that His judgment came down from out of the sky, and changed the landscape forever! Rev. 16 has Jesus saying He is about to come as a thief (hasn't come yet) on the brink of Armageddon. Finally, the bride (us) is not given her new attire until Rev 19 when Jesus is seen on the white horse-THEY are seen stand in the sky shouting His praises!
  8. Hello Zwmkw Not sure what this means. Are you saying these things were already fulfilled and you are using them for future events too?
  9. Hello, Anyone have thoughts on Daniel's prophecy relating to Greece/ Antiochus/Macabees?
  10. Wow, you have put a great deal of thought into this!
  11. Good point, not everyone is willing to hear it
  12. John 6:40 & 44- And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. Yeah, I pretty much was thinking of this time, can you show me the other days? Perhaps more trumpets etc. More announcements by the arch angel? My theory on the witnesses is that God has mot made it known to us. They are not said to be given new bodies at the point when life enters them again. This was true with all others raised to life previously. Being part of the resurrection means one must die, of course as they all did. All but these two are assumed to have died again. I think you are asking for answers that you don't have. Will they have new bodies like all who ARE called out of the graves?? I can assume so but when? Not shown in scripture, unless you know where. I don't think they will have to wait for 1,000 yrs. either. To sum it up, it is God who does things and He is not bound to go by our assumptions. He can operate outside of the things that are clearly laid out if He so pleases. Deu 29:29- The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law. Ps 131:1- LORD, my heart is not proud; my eyes are not haughty. I don’t concern myself with matters too great or too awesome for me to grasp.
  13. The first resurrection occurs when Jesus returns. Nobody else is resurrected until after 1,000 yrs. later. Rev 20:4 & 5.
  14. Hi Marv, Not sure what you mean by this? I had assumed we all go together.
