No offense, but by knowing what we'll miss is just as important to those who know nothing about what's coming.

or being disapointed cos Jesus didn't follow our plan for his return.

 

I think Jesus's return is exciting enough with out worrying about the details.

Even if they are significant, once wikth God in eternity we will be able to view the return as often as we need.

( God being out side of time can see every moment of time.)

God took the time to write it out and is the only book that comes with a blessing for reading it. I'll stick to the nuances. Every yod and crownlette is important according to Jesus. This is the Revelation of Jesus.

I've no problem with reading it. I know I don't understand it, I do have a problem with those who are adament that they understand it and that the return will follow this series of events.

There are so many variations that I leave it at Jesus is coming again.

@Who me ... I agree.  So many people add to and take away from Revelation without even knowing they are doing so when they place their personal interpretation of this prophecy in their own writings.  This is the reason why I stay away from these discussions as much as possible.  2 Peter 1:20 tells us "knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation", which leads me to just read and study Revelation and allow the Holy Spirit to open my eyes to what scripture means.  I admit that there are places where I do not have an understanding yet, but it will come one day.  Let nobody tell you that they hold the only truth of a prophecy.

If you don't speak fluently Koine Greek, you're already reading biased information, such as the fallacy of χξς being 666. You interpret it every day and twice on Sunday. Very few believe the actual word of God. God's given us the meaning of Revelation and yet we want to keep it in the 90ADs because John didn't use "asteroid" or "volcano". Prophecy is being fulfilled in front of our eyes and the realists have it right, the rest of those that want to allegorize or make everything a metaphor are wrong.  The problem is that people obfuscate the truth through "we cannot know" junk so don't bother with it, or worse, be like Hezekiah and proclaim "as long as it doesn't happen to me." A sign isn't a sign without the understanding of its meaning. My goal is to make Revelation REAL with examples of how it could happen based on the scriptures and science. I never claimed to know more than what I've said - How it COULD happen. Did you even read the title? So, don't be so dismissive and cynical. So sad. Attack rather than chat. So loving, so Christlike, so edifying. Have a nice day.

Jesus Christ raptures the Church. There is a 7 year tribulation. There is a 1000 year millennium. Then there is an eternity with a new heaven and a new earth. That is all we need to know. It doesn't have to be made too complicated.

Do you really believe that mans intellect can understand scripture better than the Holy Spirit?  

Why do you see my agreeing with another member as a personal attack to you?  Did I quote anything you wrote?  No, I just let another member know they are not alone in refraining from all the false teaching that goes on with the many different discussions of personal views when it comes to prophecy.  The only attack I see so far is the quoted post above which you made to me.

      When we compare the descriptions of Himself Jesus gives John to write in the letters to the seven churches (ekklesias), with the observations and mentions John makes of his initial experience in the Spirit with the ascended Christ, we notice how readily they match, along with some other passages for the sixth and seventh letters. 
      Rev 2:1
      (1)  Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things says He that holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
      Rev 2:8
      (8)  And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things says the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
      Rev 2:12
      (12)  "And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write, 'These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword:
      Rev 2:18
      (18)  "And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write, 'These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like fine brass:
      Rev 3:1
      (1)  "And to the angel of the church in Sardis write, 'These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: "
      Rev 3:7
      (7)  "And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, 'These things says He who is holy, He who is true, he that has the key of David, he that opens, and no man shuts; and shuts, and no man opens;
       
      Rev 3:14
      (14)  And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
      I hope you have enjoyed these matching passages as much as I have, especially in contemplating the differences between Christ as John observed and experienced Him whilst He was on earth, and as we read of Him after He ascended. 
      Blessings from Michael37.

      As ive posted many times on this Forum, ....the fact that Legalists (all live in the wrong parts of Hebrews, (Ch 6 & 10) ......Matthew (before the Cross),...... James, and the Old Testament.
      They are really quite unacquainted with Paul.
      If they were a student of Paul, who said, "be a follower of ME, as i follow Christ".... it would be because they have been taught correct "Pauline Theology".
      If they knew anything about Paul, they would know that Jesus took Paul aside, and no other Apostle, and taught him "justification by faith", and 99% of the doctrine of the Church.
      So, when you are a student of the NT, you are a student of Paul, and from Paul, you learn "sound doctrine".

      If you have not been taught what i just showed you, then you are lost in the theological weeds, and that is why you have no idea about Grace, and can't even talk about it.
      You can't even discuss the Blood Atonement, or "justification by Faith".
      You will have no idea that Jesus is not only your Righteousness, but He is your redemption, and your sanctification and your justification, BEFORE GOD. .. In the EYES of God.
      If you are a legalist, all of this basic "Christianity 101" is Chinese to you.
      Its a language you dont speak or comprehend, and you will not be speaking it any time soon, unless you find someone like me to teach you, or you get away from whatever cult, church, or spiritually corrupted people who have led you into the dark..... and find the LIGHT.
      As, they will be happy to keep you right there with them in their darkness, for as long as you let them.
      Thats a fact, and i say this to you in love.........you need to find a way out of your heresy group.

      And to continue.
      If you are a legalist, then probably noone ever taught you anything about God's Grace, or How it works, or WHY it operates in the life of a Born Again person, the way it does.
      If you are a legalist, you have never been taught this verse..... and this verse is the first verse i teach a new Christian to memorize and LIVE With until they are saturated with what it means.
      Hebrews 13:9
      This is a verse that the devil will hide from a Legalist.
      This verse teaches that you are to establish you HEART....with GRACE.
      And what this means, is that you are to come to a deep deep understanding of What Grace is, and How Grace Works......because if you don't, you will probably be led astray from theological soundness, and end up on forums ranting about "commandments" and "law", while you try to convince real believers that they can "lose it".
      Is that you?
      In other words, if you dont do what Hebrews 13:9 tells you to do, in the beginning of your walk with Christ, you will probably end up as a Galatians 1:8
      Thats a fact.

      So, i want to help people who can be helped, and teach people who can be taught... (who are not so theologically locked into place by the pride of their self righteousness,) to understand Hebrews, and especially a few verses in Chapters 6 & 10 as these are the satanic goldmine for Legalists. Its their bread and butter from hell. Its their end game circular reasoning prison, that they all use when trying to reduce The Blood Of Christ to "working to stay saved" or "holding onto your falth to save saved" or pretending being born again is temporary, = "you can lose your salvation", they preach and preach.

      So, believers.... If you can get this revelation im about to give you, then it will help protect you from worrying about losing your salvation, because many will twist these Hebrew verses im going to rightly divide for you, to try to cause you to believe you can lose you salvation.
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Some rules.
      There are a few things you need to know, so that you have the theological groundwork necessary within you to even begin to understand this Book, and Chapters 6 and 10.
      And by the way, the book of Hebrews is to be avoided until you have studied much and are truly truly grounded in all of Paul's epistles, so that you become grounded in Grace, and the understanding of "you are the righteousness of God IN CHRIST".
      I'm not kidding.

      But, lets take a look at this, because, this will help you to at least understand what Chapters 6 and 10 are really all about.

      Here is your need to know list. :

      First, Hebrews are unsaved Jews.
      2nd, Apostles in the NT are saved Jews who are able to do signs and wonders. 2 Corinthians 12:12 And this is important to know, as you will learn, in a bit.
      3rd. "Signs".......are for the JEWS. 1 Corinthians 1:22

      You have to understand that a spiritual gift, comes from HEAVEN. It is a Heavenly gift, and all Apostles could perform these signs (Heavenly GIFTS) that were for JEWS. 1 Corinthians 1:22

      Now, all those facts, are necessary for you to understand before you jump into the Book Of Hebrews.
      Also to know...very important..... When an Apostle is writing a letter, he always begins the letter with a greeting. And from these greetings, we "rightly divided" their words to understand who the letter is meant for....as this gives us an understanding of it so that we don't misuse the letter theologically or doctrinally.
      And Hebrews, is the most misused Letter in the NT by people who say they are Christians.
      AS i told you before......Legalists, LIVE in Hebrews, a letter that is NOT addressed to the CHURCH.
      Get that.
      Very important for you to realize it.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      Ok here we go.

      The Book of Hebrews, is not addressed to the Church.
      The book of Hebrews, is addressed to HEBREWS...these are UNSAVED JEWS.
      This is why the letter is not addressed to "the church".
      Now be sure you understand that.....as i keep saying... = very important to understand.

      Now, let me show you what happens when an Apostle is dealing with religious (HEBREWS) Jews, who are hateful, hate-filled, and antagonistic.
      Lets look at how this all plays out during and after this Apostle is preaching the Gospel to them.
      And remember...
      This Apostle is showing them "heavenly gifts", 2 Corinthians 12:12 as these unsaved HEBREWS have a right to expect "signs", as that is 1 Corinthians 1:22.
      So, this Apostle, does everything He can possibly do, and they still wont have Jesus as their Messiah, and it plays out like this in Hebrews Chapter 6 and Chapter 10.
      -
      -
      In Hebrews 6 and 10

      10 "For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
      It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened who have tasted the (heavenly gift)... If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. ""
      ----------

      Now Saint.....Here is how you rightly divided those verses.
      And i will use Ch 10 & 6, where unsaved Jews (Hebrews) are being shown the signs of an apostle (tasted the heavenly gift), heard the Gospel, and still refused their Messiah.

      There is a JEWISH Apostle, (perhaps Paul) who is preaching the Message of the Cross to Hebrews (jews) who are not saved. They are rejecting the message, rejecting Jesus as Messiah, and this Apostle is warning them of the consequence of Rejecting Christ.
      He ESPECIALLY explains in detail their rend result for rejecting Christ, when a "Signs of an Apostle" is happening in front of them.... 2nd Corinthians 12:12 (Tasted the Heavenly GIFT).... This apostle has Gifts of the Spirit and he has just let them see the signs, as "Signs are for the JEWS". 1 Corinthians 1:22... So, here you have a Jewish Apostle, preaching to Lost JEWs (Hebrews) and He is giving them the works....>Not just the Gospel, but "Signs of an Apostle", 2nd Corinthians 12:12... this is THEIR "tasting the Heavenly Gift", this is, them LITERALLY SEEING SIGNS....THE MIRACULOUS.. these Jews are seeing this... THE Spiritual Gifts this Apostle has, which come from HEAVEN...and these jews are STILL DETERMINED TO reject their Messiah, while seeing this JEWISH Apostle's SIGNS., and hearing him preach the Truth to them.

      This means, these are hard hearted hate filled religious Jews (Hebrews)....and that is why this Apostle rips into them...with....""" you are trodding underfoot the blood""... He is telling them....You are no different then your Father's (elders) who KNEW Christ was Messiah, and they spit on His Blood that was shed for them.... and they stood there at the foot of the Cross and told Jesus...."Come on down Jesus, you can do it right, .. isn't that right, MR MESSIAH"?

      That is what is going on here readers........and This APOSTLE tells them.......If you do this, as you are doing.....you have no way to be SAVED....as you have "sinned willfully" away your SALVATION.......= you have willfully rejected the ONLY ONE Who can save you... You are willfully choosing to be a CHRIST REJECTOR and ""there is no more sacrifice for you SIN", if you do this.........as Hebrews 6 explains to them... and to us.

      So, that is Hebrews 10 & 6. ..... That is a JEWISH Apostle, using signs, dealing with unsaved HEBREWS - Religious JEWS who have the same Hatred in their hearts that was in the hearts of the HEBREWS who wanted this......."crucify him......crucify him.......crucify him">... And Pilate told them that Jesus's BLOOD was on THEIR Hands, as he washed his in that bowl, and then turned THEIR MESSIAH over to the whips and The CROSS.
      These unsaved Jews in the book of HEBREWS are also "trodding underfoot" AGAIN, the blood of Jesus.....same as before, when their Elders did it, with Jesus hanging on a Cross as proof of their Christ Rejection.
      This Apostle, is comparing these HEBREWS Christ rejection, as exactly the same as the Hebrews who originally "trod underfoot the blood of Jesus", and stood there glaring their hatred at Him, while Christ hung dying.

      As the title indicates, God's existence is a mathematical theorem within standard physics. Standard physics is the known laws of physics, viz., the Second Law of Thermodynamics, General Relativity, and Quantum Mechanics. This theorem has been given in the form of physicist and mathematician Prof. Frank J. Tipler's Omega Point cosmology. These aforestated known physical laws have been confirmed by every experiment conducted to date. Hence, the only way to avoid Tipler's Omega Point Theorem is to reject empirical science. As Prof. Stephen Hawking wrote, "one cannot really argue with a mathematical theorem." (From p. 67 of Stephen Hawking, The Illustrated A Brief History of Time [New York, NY: Bantam Books, 1996; 1st ed., 1988].)
      Prof. Tipler's Omega Point cosmology has been extensively peer-reviewed and published in a number of the world's leading physics and science journals, such as Reports on Progress in Physics (the leading journal of the Institute of Physics, Britain's main professional organization for physicists), Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society (one of the world's leading astrophysics journals), the International Journal of Theoretical Physics (a journal that Nobel Prize in Physics winner Richard Feynman also published in), and Physics Letters, among other journals.
      Prof. Tipler's Ph.D. is in the field of Global General Relativity, which is the field created by Profs. Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose during the formulation of their Singularity Theorems in the 1960s. Global General Relativity is General Relativity applied on the scale of the entire universe as a whole, and is the most elite and rarefied field of physics. Tipler is also an expert in quantum field theory (i.e., Quantum Mechanics combined with special-relativistic particle physics) and computer theory.
      For much more on Prof. Tipler's Omega Point cosmology and the details on how it uniquely conforms to, and precisely matches, the cosmology described in the New Testament, see my following article, which also addresses the societal implications of the Omega Point cosmology:

      TL;DR Possiblity of humans being able to live forever, moral or not?
       
      Hello all! 
      I found this sub forum and got super excited because it is right up my alley
      ok I wanna purpose a semi hypothetical situation.....for those who may not be familiar Trans humanism s defined as "the belief or theory that the human race can evolve beyond its current physical and mental limitations, especially by means of science and technology" from here on out it will be referred as H+. 
      So H+ proponents believe that they could either reverse or completely eliminate human cell aging by the year 2050. They believe that an event known as the singularity is coming and could be here by the 2030ish. From there H+ believe that humans could either A) implant themselves into machines (aka cyborgs), B) create procedures to reverse human cell aging, C) create digital copies of the human consciousness and upload it to a "cloud" storage system. Now this could be cool for many reasons, such as scientific development could be massively extended if scientists could live for extended periods of time. People with terminal illnesses could simply switch bodies. Stuff like that.
      However with all things morality and ethics should be examined. Could a person be transferred into a new body and still be the original person? How would the soul figure into the equation? If we could would it be a sin? Would that be flying in the face of God's plan?
      The bible never specifically answers questions such as the given the situation and personally I feel as if moral gray areas should be avoided like the plague. Though I would be excited about the potential to live forever. 
      What are your thoughts? Should H+ be pursuing these ideas or could this be a demonic trap?

      Daily Reading 36 If you prefer, you can look up the following verses in your own Bible, of by whatever means and in whatever version you choose. Hebrews 1 Genesis 45:1-46:27 Psalm 36 Audio 2:15 Audio 4:10 Audio 1:29 The above addresses are linked to Bible Gateway. That is an easy way to read (or listen to) the Bible verses, and choose your version.  Personally, I prefer written, that way I can go at my own pace, on think about it, before moving on. Nothing wrong with doing either or both. The Bible says faith comes by hearing. See the picture below to get an idea of what to expect if you follow the above links.

      Note: The audio will not play the exact verses, it will play the whole chapters, in which the verses exist.
      Thank you Lord for making the your word so accessible for us in these times. Amen
