    What does Revelation 2:10 mean?

    I hold the position that the letters symbolize Church eras and that the ten days represent ten years of intense persecution of Christians under the Roman Empire from 303 AD until 313 AD. In 303 Emperor Diocletian issued an edict ordering the cessation of Christian meetings, the destruction of...

    Current Prophets?

    Send them back Revelation 4:1. This clearly matches Paul's descriptions of the rapture. The voice like a trumpet says, "Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter." Immediately John is in Heaven. The seals are opened after this in chapter 6. The church is not mentioned...

    Question about Christ's letters to the seven churches in Revelation

    I doubt this is the reason, but for the sake of discussion, the first three churches go north. From Patmos, a letter carrier would first arrive at the seaport of Ephesus, then travel up to Smyrna, and then Pergamum. Just as the reversal happens in the text regarding he that hath an ear to hear...

    Did Joseph of Arimathea Know?

    I think Luke chapter 2 illustrates how the Holy Spirit can choose to reveal special insight to those who diligently study the scriptures and with patience and faith await their fulfillment. I’m certain that both Simeon and Anna the prophetess knew Daniel’s 70 weeks very well, and knew there were...

    We will own nothing and be happy I changed to a different video, it's the exact same clip but from a different channel, because that original Bitchute channel was sketchy. Bitchute has some sketchy stuff but that's the trade off for less censorship. Also I was paraphrasing what he...

    We will own nothing and be happy

    Klaus Schwab is a leading proponent of genetic editing and implanting humans with microchips to merge us with the digital world, which is the main reason eschatology students took notice of him. He said in an interview in 2016 that he wanted these implants within 10 years. He’s 84 now and wants...

    Did Joseph of Arimathea Know?

    I think you could be onto something here, as if he really wanted to be the one to fulfill this prophecy. Mark 15:43 specifies that he "went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus." This is not unlike Alexander the Great, who was shown the scroll and recognized he was the conqueror...

    Look to God for Mercy

    For Jews, immigration to Israel is called "ascending" and emigration from Israel is called "descending." Aliyah means ascent and yerida means descent.

    Pope Francis: “Proselytizing is something pagan, not evangelical, not Christian”

    Napoleon Bonaparte said, "The Jesuits are a military organization, not a religious order. Their chief is a general of an army, not the mere father abbot of a monastery. And the aim of this organization is power. Power in its most despotic exercise. Absolute power, universal power, power to...

    John Kerry says an 'extra terrestrial' force brought people to Davos to 'save the planet'

    As others have mentioned, I think it is likely that an alleged mass alien abduction will be a major part of the strong delusion Paul mentioned in 2 Thessalonians. Satan knows the scriptures and he knows our harpazo is imminent. The only way to explain away all the missing people is by faking a...

    Noah COULD have floated his boat, say scientists: Ark really could have coped with two of every anim

    Dr. Georgia Purdom, a creationist with a PhD in Molecular Genetics, has explained that a "kind" of animal that Noah brought into the ark is generally at the same taxonomic classification as "family" and not "species". Thus, far fewer animals were required than people realize to repopulate Earth...

    The Prophet, The Priest, And The King

    Knowing the history of Alexander's common Greek will hopefully help explain to those who do not understand how Paul used the word "harpazo" to describe how we who are alive and remain will be "caught up" to be with the Lord, and with the saints who are asleep. We will be pulled away. Another...

    The Prophet, The Priest, And The King

    I believe strongly that among the Diadochi, the four notable ones of Daniel 8:8 are Cassander, Lysimachus, Ptolemy, and Seleucus and that the Battle of Ipsus was the decisive breaking of the kingdom into four as explained in Daniel 8:22. Clarifying this can be helpful before moving on because...

    Eternal Security and Gospel Assurance

    Thank you, that is a great article to have linked into this thread because Hebrews 6 is a very important chapter. Hebrews 6 is a great example, out of many, where having the correct understanding of eschatology and the prophetic timeline is so crucial. Those awaiting the rapture know how to...

    Eternal Security and Gospel Assurance

    I was just reading Hebrews 6 today and concluded that this chapter is mistakenly cited as proof Christians can lose their salvation because of ignoring or misunderstanding the very first verse. Hebrews 6:1 says, "Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto...

    Is The Pre-Trib Rapture Too New To Be True? (Part 2 of 3)

    I wrote in a different thread that another person to include in this era is Cyprian of Carthage, the influential third century Christian writer, bishop, and martyr. Cyprian taught that the Church will be taken away from disasters by an earlier departure. His Treatise VII says, "And this, as it...

    Is The Pre-Trib Rapture Too New To Be True? (Part 3 of 3)

    I realize now that this third part of the series covers the time after the Reformation and therefore Cyprian of Carthage and Irenaeus belong to the second part of the study. Lately, I have been interested in learning more about the Church in the 18th and 19th centuries so this is perfect.

    Is The Pre-Trib Rapture Too New To Be True? (Part 3 of 3)

    Other early Church leaders also taught about this same earlier departure and about being taken away before tribulation. Irenaeus wrote Against Heresies circa 180 A.D. and it says, "And therefore, when in the end the Church shall be suddenly caught up from this, it is said, 'There shall be...

    Cyprian of Carthage, a third century Christian writer and martyr, wrote in his Treatise VII, "And this, as it ought always to be done by God's servants, much more ought to be done now - now that the world is collapsing and is oppressed with the tempests of mischievous ills; in order that we who...
