    Anyone on here play videogames?

    When I was younger, though a Christian, I loved playing the DOOM games. Something appealed to me about killing demons. These older years (I'm in my 50's), I like to play more modern games like Farming Simulator 17 or 19, and/or Satisfactory to relieve stress, while I'll have Jack Hibbs, Chuck...

    Medical staff told not to wear uniforms while commuting

    I'm in the Midwestern U.S., and so far the surrounding communities have been great. Giving thanks for our service and even starting groups to sew masks for our local hospitals.

    Maybe the Coronavirus...

    That may be the case as far as an end-times scenario. But still, it could be bad. The earth has had bad pestilences in the past. I.e., the Spanish flu, the black plaque. I could still see where we are hit hard enough, that after it's over, though we'll come back to some normalcy, we still...

    Maybe the Coronavirus...

    Well, first, I live in the middle of the country (Missouri) and the context of what they said to us, was for our area. He (the ID physician) said that right now, we're just in the beginning stages of things. He told us this on Monday 3/16. He said in a couple of weeks, it's really gonna take...

    Maybe the Coronavirus...

    I work at a hospital, in Infection Prevention. Our medical directors are infectious disease physicians. The scenarios they give us don’t look good. So it just struck me. If what I’m being told could possibly happen, then this pandemic could be what takes America out of the picture. We could be...

    What the Jews will think when the Rapture happens....

    Yes, that has always surprised me as well. However, I was told by my pastor that those religious Jews in Israel after the country's inception were saying that God used Hitler as a whip to drive them back to the land.

    What the Jews will think when the Rapture happens....

    But even more than that.... I'm wondering more specifically.... since many non-believing religious Jews heard of this "wacky" belief of Christians about the Rapture.... having just seen the Rapture, I'm curious about how they'd explain it away, after having just seen something they were told...

    What the Jews will think when the Rapture happens....

    Ok... so if I have got your thinking right, it's the events of Ezekiel 38-39 that will wake them up to Christ... specifically "Jesus". It will suddenly cause 144,000 super Jewish evangelists to become saved and proclaim Jesus because of Ezekiel 38-39. Not that millions of Christians across...

    What the Jews will think when the Rapture happens....

    The difference would be that they, among all the other religions on the planet are the closest to Christianity. Now I know that not all Christians are pre-mill, but I'm sure enough of us have been around over the years that the concept of the rapture reached many of the Jews and that many Jews...

    What the Jews will think when the Rapture happens....

    If the Rapture happened this afternoon and all the world is devastated and absolutely SHOCKED by what has happened. What would the Jews be thinking had happened? I'm sure there's some Jews out there who have heard of the Rapture and dismiss it after it happens. What would be their reasoning...

    The Litmus Test

    I think that we forget that whatever we pray for has to be the will of God as well. Sometimes we pray for things that aren't in our best interests (really) or coincides with God's will. And I don't think that everyone of us tossing mountains left and right just to see if what Jesus said is...

    I'm excited!

    Hi all! I'm excited for 2020! In this "Days of Noah" world that we live in.... I keep thinking that the rapture has got to be soon.... maybe even this upcoming year!! I'm not setting a date, just excited that it has to be soon, because I can't fathom all of this going on for much longer...

    What ABOUT Alcohol?

    I was raised in a family with an alcoholic father. Due to that, my whole life I seriously restricted how much I drank.... which means almost none at all, save a glass of wine a couple of times a year. I've always been worried that I'd turn into my father and I was determined not to let that...

    Time travel?

    Thinking about this some more, I could come up with one more possibility (among probably many more). Maybe during John's sojourn up to heaven, what he was involved with was a kind of "copy" of reality, that he was witnessing. A reflection of what has yet to truly happen in our...

    Time travel?

    I agree "mostly." Except the part that said, "He showed future events - visually - for John..." Several places in Revelation, however, had him interacting with various elders and angels at the time of the events. So I don't believe it was just visual for John. He was there, participating in...
