  1. Hi Daniel.... I've had many conversations with JW's. I never let them get beyond John 1:1. " In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God" Their translation reads...."And the Word was A God" I then tell them that their whole translation has been changed to reflect on "A God" All the verses that pertain to Jesus's deity have been altered to say something different, that He is not Deity. Also, they now have God the Father, Jehova, creating a lesser God, Jesus, to do all His creating work. You can go on and on with just this "a God" business. They get spun like a pretzel, and usually walk away. They say they will check on this, but you usually don't see them again. Yup, I've been blacklisted many times.
  2. I will strongly disagree with "Daniel was primarily a historian" Much of what Daniel wrote was prophecy given to him by the Holy Spirit. And much of what he prophesied is still future. Ok, so I'll bite.....show me the "gospel quote of Jesus denying the rapture" Holler away.....
  3. Hi choir loft, Mathew 24:15: Therefore, when you see the Abomination of Desolation which was spoken of through DANIEL THE PROPHET Seems like Jesus considered Daniel to be a PROPHET. Good enough for me.
  4. Hi all, If any of you are interested in reading a free book by Joel Richardson....."Mystery Babylon", here is the link.... https://joelstrumpet.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/Mystery-Babylon.pdf " It is well written and supported by Scripture. Here is what a few have to say about it: “Richardson’s new volume is brilliantly researched, Scripturally solid, and fluently written. It is quite evident that ‘MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS’ may no longer be a mystery. This book is must-reading for everyone with a passion for prophetic truth and an interest in the last days.” —MARVIN J. ROSENTHAL, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, ZION’S HOPE “Once again, bestselling author Joel Richardson connects the geopolitical and prophetic dots and presents a compelling, straightforward, and redemptive case for one of the Bible’s most enigmatic prophecies. If you want to understand the times like the sons of Issachar, I heartily recommend Joel’s latest excellent work.” —CHRIS MITCHELL, MIDDLE EAST BUREAU CHIEF, CHRISTIAN BROADCASTING NETWORK Here are just a few snippets: Thus, in our quest to understand and identify Mystery Babylon, we now have the following working definition: A symbolic term used to identify the capital of the final great satanic empire. It is the final capital of global idolatry and the last great demonic stronghold of the earth, from which Satan will wage his war against Jerusalem and God’s redemptive purposes. Various commentators share this view. For example, Kendall Easley, in his commentary on Revelation, stated: In his day—the time of the sixth head of the monster—the form of the woman was Rome. During the days of the seventh head of the monster, another great and wicked city will rise. As Antichrist’s splendid capital, she will have no rival.12 After listing the capital cities of the Egyptian (Memphis), Assyrian (Nineveh), Babylonian (Babylon), Persian (Persepolis), and Roman (Rome) empires, Easley continued: Each was the Babel of its own day. Each rose as an expression of engineering ingenuity, supported by military might and political scheming. Each was a commercial, religious, and cultural center. Each proudly opposed God and the people of God. Roll them all together, and they become the perfect forerunner for one future final great city and civilization opposed to God—“Babylon the Great,” mistress of the world. As with the world’s first great city Babel, so with the last Babel: God will judge her directly and dramatically.13 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We must note that whether we are speaking of the Antichrist himself, his followers, or the bloodthirsty harlot, they all function together to fulfill Satan’s rage. Lenski rightly stated, “In a sense Babylon, the whore, the kings, the earth dwellers, are one and the same.”1 Christians often think of the persecution of the Antichrist, but rarely consider the great last-days persecution as coming from the harlot. In truth, the two are essentially one and the same. Thus we understand the call for the slain saints, apostles, and prophets in heaven to “rejoice over her, . . . because God has pronounced judgment for you against her” (Rev. 18:20). The blood shed under the shadow of the great harlot will be so great that it is as if she is personally responsible for all of the holy blood shed down through history. This is why the prophecy concludes with such a strong note: “And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints and of all who have been slain on the earth” (Rev. 18:24). Babylon is not literally responsible for the shed blood of every single last saint in all 114 | MYSTERY BABYLON of history. The persecution that is coming under her influence, however, is vast enough to justify such hyperbolic, all-inclusive language. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hope you enjoy it Cheers
  5. Cool bro....that's the way I see it in scripture too. If we look at Mathew 24, the "road map", because it's Jesus's own words, He answers their question "What will be the sign of your coming?" His answer matches with the six seals of Revelation, which match the Letters to the Churches in Rev, which match the work week.... (6 days of work and then a day of rest). which match the account of Noah and the flood. ( Noah was told to enter the Ark and in 7 days the flood would come....so he entered and loaded the Ark with animals and food, for six days and on the 7th when he and his family entered, God shut the door and the rains came, on the 7th day.) That will all take some explanation, but that is the essence of it. So, the first 6 seals take 6 years to unfold, one a year, then the last year, the righteous in Christ both dead and alive, are Resurrected and Raptured at the start of the year (roughly), the 7 trumpets are the last year, and the bowls are......get this......during the "10 days of AWE ". Bowls poured out....rapid fire.... That really nicely matches the account of Noah.....where the Ark is "one year and ten days" above the earth. Jesus said that the end will be like the days of Noah. I just can't get how some still say that God would never allow the "Church" to get "beat up" during the Great Tribulation. The cry of emotion!. Please, the Churches finest hour will be during the Great Tribulation. We will let our light shine. We will preach the Gospel like never before. We will go to prison and preach there. We will stand before the courts and preach there. We will go to our deaths and preach there. This will be our greatest time of witnessing to the unsaved. We work for 6 days (six years) and then rest on the 7th day (7th year) This is from years of getting into the "bowel"s of Scripture, but that's the way I see it. It's logical and makes the most sense. No twisting of Scripture. Pre-wrath all the way.
  6. Hey LD, Are you saying that the Lord's judgment begins at the start of the millennium........ "occurs at the beginning" not sure if I'm reading it right
  7. Hi all, Scripture tells us how long the Day of the Lord is. But first, let's look at what the Day of the Lord is: Zephaniah 1:14-18 Near is the great day of the LORD, Near and coming very quickly; Listen, the day of the LORD! In it the warrior cries out bitterly. A day of wrath is that day, A day of trouble and distress, A day of destruction and desolation, A day of darkness and gloom, A day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of trumpet and battle cry Against the fortified cities And the high corner towers Isaiah 13:9-11 Behold, the day of the LORD is coming, Cruel, with fury and burning anger, To make the land a desolation; And He will exterminate its sinners from it. For the stars of heaven and their constellations Will not flash forth their light; The sun will be dark when it rises And the moon will not shed its light. Thus I will punish the world for its evil And the wicked for their iniquity; I will also put an end to the arrogance of the proud And abase the haughtiness of the ruthless. Amos 5:18-20 Alas, you who are longing for the day of the LORD, For what purpose will the day of the LORD be to you? It will be darkness and not light; As when a man flees from a lion And a bear meets him, Or goes home, leans his hand against the wall And a snake bites him. Will not the day of the LORD be darkness instead of light, Even gloom with no brightness in it? Joel 1:15 Alas for the day! For the day of the LORD is near, And it will come as destruction from the Almighty. As we can see, it is a Day of Doom and Gloom, a Day of Darkness, a Day of Destruction and Desolation, a Day of Wrath, a Day of............. Here, Scripture tells us how long the Day of the Lord is: Isa 34:8...."For the Lord has a day of vengeance A YEAR of recompense for the cause of Zion" Isa 61:2..." To proclaim the favorable YEAR of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God" Isa 63:4...." For the day of vengeance was in My heart, and My YEAR of redemption has come" Knowing that the Wrath of God begins on a DAY but lasts a YEAR helps other Scriptures fall into place. For instance, Noah was in the Ark exactly one Year and 10 Days. In the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep burst open . . . In the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dry. (Gen. 7:11, 8:14) The coming of the Son of Man is to be like unto the days of Noah. Noah was above the earth 1 year and 10 days while the unrighteous were judged. The righteous will be above the earth 1 year and 10 days after the Rapture while the unrighteous will be judged during the Day of the Lord. To say that The Day of the Lord is all of Daniel's 70th week, as I have heard people say, or 1/2 of the Week, or 1,000 years...... just doesn't jive with what Scripture says. I certainly can't see it being the length of time for the Millennium. 1,000 years of doom and gloom and darkness?
  8. You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved. Mathew 10:22 Do you still think that this verse applies only to the Jews? Think again. Churches Have Become The #1 Target For Hate Attacks: An Average Of 105 Every Single Month Authored by Michael Snyder via The End of The American Dream blog, April 22,2019 The bombings in Sri Lanka have once again put a spotlight on the rising tide of violence against Christians all over the world. According to Open Doors USA, an average of 105 churches and/or Christian buildings are burned or attacked every month. That is more than three per day, and almost all of those attacks get ignored by the mainstream media in the western world. In addition, an average of 345 Christians are killed for faith-related reasons every single month. Of course these numbers will soon be out of date, because violence against Christians continues to escalate all over the globe, and the horrifying attacks that we just witnessed in Sri Lanka are a perfect example. The following comes from CBS News… More specifically, the attackers were Muslim extremists. Why does the mainstream media have to be so politically-correct all the time? Of course this comes right on the heels of the fire that almost destroyed the Notre Dame Cathedral. Authorities are still attempting to determine the cause of that fire, but we do know that many other churches have been hit by vandals and arsonists in France since the beginning of February… In an apparent attempt to copy what happened at Notre Dame, a deranged philosophy professor was caught bringing gas cans and lighter fluid to St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York… Fortunately a great tragedy was averted in that case, but most churches around the world are very “soft targets” with absolutely no security whatsoever. And these days, there is literally nowhere that is safe. Attacks on churches are happening literally all over the globe, and sometimes they happen right in the middle of a worship service. For instance, here is an example from the Philippines that recently made worldwide headlines… Earlier this year in India, a group of Christians was absolutely horrified when they arrived for worship only to find that their church had burned completely to the ground… Christians were horrified to see Pentecostal Church in India’s Telangana state completely engulfed by black smoke when they arrived for worship. On closer inspection much of the inside of the church, including furniture, the pulpit, the sound system, fans, carpets, and lights, were burned to ashes during the attack on February 2 at about 11am. The devastating attack on the church, home to 200 worshippers, has left Christians from ten villages without a place to worship. By a very wide margin, churches are the number one target for hate attacks, and it is only going to get worse. Sadly, churches in the U.S. are increasingly being attacked as well. You may not have heard about it in the news, but three churches in Louisiana were recently destroyed by arson… In previous articles, I have argued that all churches are going to need armed security from this point forward. The world has changed, and we need to change with it. When I was growing up, I never imagined that someone might come in to my church and start shooting, but over the last several decades we have seen such a scenario play out numerous times. Just check out this list of fatal church shootings that have happened since Columbine… 1999 Wedgewood Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas 2001 Greater Oak Missionary Baptist Church in Hopkinsville, Kentucky 2002 Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church in Lynbrook, New York 2003 Turner Monumental AME Church in Kirkwood, Georgia 2005 Living Church of God in Brookfield, Wisconsin 2005 World Changers Church in College Park, Georgia 2006 Zion Hope Missionary Baptist in Detroit, Michigan 2006 Ministry of Jesus Christ Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana 2007 First Presbyterian Church in Moscow, Idaho 2007 First Congregational Church in Neosho, Missouri 2007 New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado 2008 First Baptist Church in Maryville, Illinois 2009 Reformation Lutheran Church in Wichita, Kansas 2012 World Changers Church in College Park, Georgia 2015 Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina 2017 Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, Tennessee 2017 First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas 2017 St. Alphonsus Church in Fresno, Texas Christian persecution is on the rise all over the world, and it is likely to intensify greatly in the years ahead. But of course most of the time the mainstream media attempts to ignore this growing trend as much as possible. When there are spectacular attacks with large numbers of deaths like we just witnessed in Sri Lanka they will cover the story, but other than that they try very hard to avoid any stories that would put Christians in a sympathetic light. They can try to ignore what is happening all they want, but it doesn’t change the fact that hatred for the Christian faith is growing, and what we have been witnessing in recent weeks is just the beginning.
  9. Hi frienduff thaylorde Well said brother....... "No fear, only Hope" "Onward Christians Soldiers.....marching as to war, with the cross of Jesus going on before...."
  10. Hi Neighbour, You are correct. Worthy Ministries does not hide from the world, it is an outreach ministry. It is an open ministry for the world. Anyone can come to the site and read what is going on. Those from the "liberal left", who get bent out of shape for anyone saying anything that doesn't line up with their beliefs, it is those who can cause the most harm. Even to the point of shutting the site down, if there is enough flack about it. Like the OP said.....it can be deemed as hate literature.....or a hate platform..........or even Islamaphobic. So, it is not us "hiding from the world", but asking the Lord to "hide the site" from those who would like to shut it down. As has been the case on many other sites. That's my take on it anyways.
  11. iamlamad, Until a person has a good grasp of the book of Daniel, they will assume it's all history. It has a lot to do with the future. The Amplified Bible you say? Ah yes, the "multiple choice bible". I don't believe that any serious student of scripture places any value on this bible. But hey, if it works for you, by all means, go for it.
  12. Hi angels4u, Good stuff sister. Yes, let us keep Worthy Ministries in prayer, that our Sovereign Lord would hide us from the enemy. Brother Andrew also. He smuggled bibles into Communist countries during the cold war. Corrie ten Boom and Brother Andrew......may we be so bold and walk in their footsteps.
  13. These "headlines" to articles at (thoughtpolice.news) are just a sampling of what's happening to free speech. How long will it be before sites such as Worthy are labelled as a 'hate platform'?....."hate literature"......"islamaphobic". Do you think Christian forums such as this one will ever be shut down? I fear the day. Tech giants, social media now run by “left-wing journalist mafia,” warns Bokhari… radical Leftism now controls nearly all “allowed” speech online Praying “in the name of Jesus” now labeled “Islamophobic” by the increasingly deranged, anti-Christian Left Google partners with China to dominate the world with online tyranny, censorship and communism agendas Instagram now labels pro-life speech “hate speech,” begins banning everything Apple Now Dominated By Satanic Influence To Silence All That Is True Internal company discussion thread PROVES Google intervenes to downgrade search results for pro-life and other “controversial” content Apple bans Christian app, other tech giants soon to follow as war on Christianity accelerates Amazon, Google and other tech giants now protecting radical Islam while censoring Christianity
  14. Hi shortangel, Mike Adams from Natural News, the site that this article is from, is an upstanding guy. I would think it is true. Very shocking none-the-less. A sign of the times we live in.
  15. Natural News) There’s a concerted effort afoot to rebrand Satanism as a benevolent, all-faiths religious system marked by tolerance, diversity, and inclusion, as opposed to the ritualistic and overt devil worship with which most people are familiar. And leading the charge in spreading this new-breed type of Satanism to the masses are none other than Hollywood and the mainstream media, both of which having long abandoned any semblance of Christian values, are now openly proclaiming that their true goal and purpose is to usher in this more palatable Antichrist system in preparation for, and anticipation of, the Man of Sin himself. As explained by Matthew Jacobs, writing for the Verizon-owned The Huffington Post, avowed Satanist Penny Lane recently released her new documentary, Hail Satan?, which sets the tone for this new type of devil worship that’s sure to gain popularity for its fundamental “do as thou wilt” doctrines. Instead of adherents having to wear black clothing while chanting around pentagrams and the like, Lane’s version of Satanism allows for people to essentially do whatever they want, and whatever “feels” right – and is, perhaps, best represented by the six-colored “rainbow” flag of the LGBT Mafia, a popular image that symbolizes this new anything-goes acceptance of anything and everything, except for real Christianity. “Satanists, it turns out, are everything you think they’re not: patriotic, charitable, ethical, equality-minded, dedicated to picking up litter with pitchforks on an Arizona highway,” Jacobs writes in his glowing endorsement of Lane’s brand of Satanism. “By reclaiming the pop iconography that has long frightened evangelical America – devil worship, ritualistic sacrifice, horns, pentagrams, the so-called Black Mass – the Satanic Temple aims to catch people’s attention and then surprise them with messages of free speech, compassion, liberty and justice for all,” he adds. For more related news about the rise of the Antichrist, be sure to check out Evil.news and Antichrist.news. Satanism is tolerant of everyone, unless you trust in Christ as your Savior There’s nothing off-limits within the realm of Satanism – except, of course, for believing that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and trusting in him for salvation. Christians, in other words, have no place within Satanism, nor will they be welcomed into the global Antichrist system that Lane and her fellow Satanists are chomping at the bit to see implemented by force. While extolling the “virtues” of Satanism in terms of it supposedly propagating a dogma coexistence, Lane makes it clear that people like Vice President Mike Pence, who openly identifies as a Christian, are not to be coexisted with because, in her view, they’re trying to implement a Christian theocracy. Christianity cannot coexist with Satanism, in other words, and thus must be curb-stomped into oblivion – all in the name of “love,” of course. This would seem to be the future of Satanism: a kinder, softer religious system of embracing the “real you” while coming together with everyone else, regardless of perceived differences, in order to tackle “problems” like “global warming” that supposedly affect the entire planet, and thus require a unified, all-is-one solution from the new global citizenry marching in lockstep under the “rainbow” banner of pride – pride being the very first sin that Satan cultivated into fruition back in the Garden of Eden. “While these are intended as signs of inclusiveness and tolerance, their presence is in reality a sign of the unabashed brazenness of the ancient enemy of Christ planting his flag wherever he can to claim God’s people for himself,” writes Doug Mainwaring for LifeSiteNews.com about what Satan’s “rainbow” flags truly represent. “The rainbow flag in churches stands in judgment and mockery of the Primordial Sacrament, Christ’s spousal love for his perfect complement, his Betrothed, the Church … It’s just an equal sign: Dismantling the Cross of Christ.”
