    After reading the Simeon thread I wanted to ask a follow up question to everyone as those were quite interesting.

    We probably, in that moment, will realize how unfirm "solid ground" is. I think it was Ruth Graham Bell who I first heard point out that New Jerusalem is built on twleve foundations (at least, the walls are). That is a secure, stable place to stand.

    Flashback: The War For Eurabia

    Revelation 3:10 "I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth." Biblical prophecies, as I understand it, generally have two fulfilment--one in the near term, to show the prophecy is true, and from God, and a...

    Only God Can Make a Mouse

    I intend no insult by the term; it is merely descriptive.

    After reading the Simeon thread I wanted to ask a follow up question to everyone as those were quite interesting.

    Flight attendants. I would prefer to be at home, and prefer to be awake, when our Lord calls us. I drive for a living, and would not want my truck to careen into oncoming traffic. I would rather be caught on the toilet rather than be caught engaging in sin. That would be embarrassing. I have...

    Only God Can Make a Mouse

    I stopped arguing with Darwinoids long ago, when I realized they never argue in good faith. They won't say "random chance", anymore; it's "undirected natural processes". Regardless, they cannot describe an observed "undirected natural process" that can produce information where none exists...

    Speaking Truth not Tolerated at SWBTS

    Many in that day will say to our Lord Jesus, "Lord, Lord; did we not promote tolerance in Your name? Did we not cast out the promoters of bigotry in Your name? And, in Your name do many works of social justice?" And our Lord will say, "Depart from Me, you foul servants of perversity, lies, and...

    The world restored....

    My brother thinks that dinosaurs were possibly part of the "Nephilim Project". As to animals in general, (and this may have already been mentioned) we know from Scripture that when our Lord Jesus returns, He is riding a white horse, along with His hosts of heaven, who,are also,ridong on white...

    The world restored....

    Oh, no doubt there wil be crimes, at least, as you say, beginning with the first post-Tribulation Generation, but I believe no crime will be committed without swift punishment. Our Lord Jesus will rule the world with a rod of iron. There won't be a court system and police forces, I think. No...

    The world restored....

    New Jerusalem will possibly be in low orbit around the earth, and visible to those on the earth. People still in their mortal state will be able to sin, but they will, as antitox said, no longer have to deal with dark,spirits tempting them, and on the other side will have angels and saints...

    Wherefore, Contend With One Another Over These Words

    "Those who reject a pre-Trib Rapture argue that expecting a pre-Trib Rapture will...accept the Mark." And so make one's salvation dependent upon not holding a certain eschatological belief. "You must believe in Jesus, and not believe in the Pre-Trib Rapture, in order to be saved." Or, perhaps...

    The Tribulation: The Two Witnesses

    And it won't be just by burning Bibles. The infrastructure is already in place to introduce unBiblical information into the Bible, and to remove "problem" passages. It may become hard to find an uncorrupted copy of the Bible, and anyone who has one will likely experience unrelenting pressure...

    The Butterfly Effect

    The core takeaway is that one of the reasons we know the Bible is true is that God put prophecy statements that can be verified. I suppose if you were able to read the prophecies of some other religion--Egyptian mysticism, say--you would only find predictions that would make sense in the time...

    Simeon

    The advantages of having died prior to the Harpazo is: 1. You get to be raptured in the first wave. 2. You get to feel the full power of God's resurrection coursing through you.

    Mystery Babylon, Mother of Harlots

    Jesus was resurrected, but He still had His wounds, in His hands and in His side. That is interesting. In any case, I think calling the city "Mystery Babylon" may be incorrect. The passage could read as, there was written on her head a mystery, "Babylon the Great", etc. A mystery in Scripture...

    Simeon

    Simeon had a Scriptural reference in the Book of Daniel, which predicted to the day when the Messiah would be revealed, with historical markers to go by (Cyrus's decree to rebuild Jerusalem). I dont know any similar time prediction for the Rapture, but we do have things to look for with regard...
