Ezekiel 38-39

For a while I have been trying to study, in honesty haven't had a lot of time, Ezekiel 38-39 and how it falls into place in coralition to the tribulation. As I watch world events fall into place for it to come to pass, I hope soon, I can't put my finger on if it will be before the Anti-Christ comes ...

Re: Meat

Jesus also appeared to Peter in a dream and told him to get up, kill and eat. Jesus also said that nothing that goes into the body makes you unpure, but that which comes out. As a chef I love to eat meat. The more the better! :ebiggrin: I think that if you pray and give thanks to God for what He has...

Re: Christians will fall away at the end times...

Jesus also talks about those who will fall away from their faith, "if that were possible". It does not mean that there will be those who "lose" their salvation, for that could never happen. I am not a Pre-triber. I do not believe in an "escapists" theory on the Rapture. This is one place where I ten...

Re: Luke 24:46: "The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead

Luke 24 44 He said to them, "This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms." 45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. 46 He told them, "This is what is written:...

Re: End Times thoughts

Jesus said in Mark 13:19 For in those days there will be tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time, nor ever shall be. The black plague or bubonic plague killed roughly 25-35% of the worlds population (around 1000 a.d I think). But, in t...

Re: This bio-chip and the Mark of the Beast

Assuming a dispensationalist perspective, I would probably feel much closer to the end times living in the early 1940s than I would living today. Then you haven't been paying much attention to what is happening around the world lately, have you? With Russia parking nuclear subs and bombers in the N...

Re: Muslim? Catholic? Same thing right?

Even the authors of the Bible, as imperfect a document as it is shows so many faces to the supreme being we are supposed to worship. You forget what Paul told Timothy about how the ENTIRE Bible is "God breathed". The whole Bible came from God. So are you injecting that God is imperfect? :econfused:...
