In 1 Thessalonians 5, right after Apostle Paul had outlined the events of Christ's future return and gathering of His Church, he then pointed to a specific time on earth when the deceived will say, "Peace and safety":
1 Thess 5:1-7
5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
Do you recall our Lord Jesus foretold for the end that we'd hear of wars and rumors of wars, but to not be troubled, because the end is not yet? (see Mark 13:7).
What kind of time...
The four horsemen of the apocalypse are described in Revelation chapter 6, verses 1-8. The four horsemen are symbolic descriptions of different events which will take place in the fulfillment of the 70th and final "Week" of God's decree upon the destiny of Israel, in Dan.9:27. Also known as the seven year Tribulation, Jacob's Trouble of Jer.30:7 and the Day of the Lord. Referred to by Jesus in His Olivet Discourse in Mt.24; Mk.13 and in Lk.21.
The first horseman of the apocalypse is mentioned in Revelation 6:2, "I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest." This first horseman refers to the antichrist, who will be given authority and...
Hi, sorry for my English.
My name is Felipe/Philip, I have been a Christian since I was born, I am 24 years old, I am single and I am currently dating.
Every time I hear 1 Corinthians 7:9 I have a bad impression, to marry just to have sex, even though I realize that was not what Paul meant.
Every time I hear someone preaching about marriage, it always gets a bigger weight on the negatives aspects, in fact, looking at my parents I have no desire to marry. The world is also in this vibe lately, marriage is really a bad thing. I do not know if you can understand me, people talk a lot about the responsibility of marriage, the question is, is responsibility a bad thing? How the elders expect the youngs to marry and leave their parents'...
I'm not sure guilt is of God. Does guilt not grieve the indwelling Spirit? I don't think God wants us to stew in guilt.
But what the sense of conviction? We are to be convicted of our sin in our hearts and seek to overcome sin in our lives through Christ. Are these two the same?
Should the mature believer continue on in guilt when they slip up? Should the mature believer acknowledge the slip up, apologize, and continue on with their life as though nothing happened in order to not grieve the Spirit with negative emotions of guilt?
Many like to ponder God's love and it is great. But, does it extend to angels? Two texts prompt this question.
John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
Hebrews 2:5 It is not to angels that he has subjected the world to come, about which we are speaking. 16 For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants.
According to John 15, dying for another is the greatest expression of love. Hebrews teaches that Jesus did not die for angels and they will not be redeemed. I infer from this that God does not have the same love for angels as he does for men. While they may have great power, they are still servants of God and man. We have inherited the rights of sons of God....
Less than two weeks into the new year, the number of babies killed by abortion tops 1 million
January 12, 2018 (SPUC) — The numbers are horrific.
A digital counter is illustrating the horrifying scale of abortion around the world. Already, less than two weeks into 2018, over 1.2 million babies have been killed by abortion.
The Worldometers website has real-time counters showing dozens of different statistics, including births, deaths, and public expenditure. It also has one for abortion. On 11 January 2018, the number passed 1.2 million, meaning the one million mark would have been passed in the morning of Tuesday 9 January. The number increases every second or so, each one representing the death of an innocent unborn child.
For those of you transubstantiationists and consubstantiationists...
What do you mean when you say that the elements become the body and blood of Christ. Surely you cannot mean this in a physical sense, since nothing physically changes in the elements after consecration or upon consumption. So what do you mean?
It says he went forth to conquer and that seems to be all Trump has been doing... conquering #winning. He said he was going to do so much winning that we'd be tired of winning... White horse because he's white and controls USA which is predominantly Caucasian. It says he goes forth with a bow. If we read in Ephesians ch.6 about the armor of God it implores us to take up a shield of Faith to defend against the fiery darts of the devil. Darts and arrows (I believe) represent attacks from long range. The fiery darts of the evil one would be to cast doubt upon us in attempt to trick us and to attack our faith in other ways indirectly. Likewise, arrows from a bow can be likened to fiery darts in that they are projectiles. Trump tweets...
