John indicates 4 times in Chapter 1 of Revelation that 'these things' he's discussing will start soon - and that the whole book is probably about the Roman persecution of the church.
1. "to show his servants what must soon take place"
2. " blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it" - how could the early church obey something that was addressed to Christians 2000 years later?
3. "because the time is near."
4. he SHARES in their tribulation! - John was already in jail because of Rome.
Basically, if Revelation is some sort of timetable that only the last generation will understand:-
what good has it been for the church for the last 2000 years?
Why can't anyone agree on this end-times timetable? ;-) Why is it...
What President Joe Biden would do to stop Covid-19
Joe Biden’s message on Covid-19 is simple: “It did not have to be this way.”
That is arguably the theme of Biden’s entire presidential campaign. But it is especially relevant to health care, where the coronavirus response and the conservative crusade to overturn Obamacare combine to demonstrate the vivid contrast between the president we have and the president Joe Biden promises to be.

Should women not wear pants?
I’ve done a post on what people think of pants, women’s, or mens clothing.
Now I know they can be for women.
As I’ve finally gained weight (I’ve been very underweight for a while) I’m looking for some new trousers. Specifically, jeans.
During quarantine my male friends told me how much they were struggling with lust due to being home, and how they are “looking at the wrong places” of woman. Specifically, the rear end. And they like those jeans.
I felt really awkward. Was I one of those women they were looking at? Was I causing them to stumble?
I want to wear jeans without feeling ashamed, and doing harm, and I don’t want anyone to fall into sin because of me. I look for jeans that don’t stick and look...
It is clear the Holy Spirit has the functional characteristics of a person.
So I am not questioning whether or not he’s a person.
I am questioning what exactly is our family relation with the Holy Spirit?
God is our Father and we are his children.
Jesus is our husband and we are his bride.
We have clear family relations with the Father and the Son.
But what exactly is our family relation with the Holy Spirit?
Is he our brother, our uncle, our cousin, or is he just a really good friend?
When it comes to Bible doctrine... we can either make stuff up or read what the Bible says.
So then... "what the Bible says" is it.
1 Cor 14
Pursue love, yet desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. 2 For one who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God; for no one understands, but in his spirit he speaks mysteries. 3 But one who prophesies speaks to men for edification and exhortation and consolation.
Which as we all know --- is a great way to affirm prophets and the gift of prophecy.
Almost as good as this --
1 Cor 14: 39 Therefore, my brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy
And then there is Christ Himself saying this
34 “Therefore, behold, I am sending you prophets and wise men...
Philadelphia's Top Prosecutor Is Prepared to Arrest Federal Agents
After numerous reports and lawsuits in Portland regarding un-badged and un-uniformed federal officers arresting, beating, and detaining people in unmarked vehicles, the Trump administration’s response is that they’re going to do it even more, and in more cities. Saying that his federal agents are doing a “fantastic job,” Trump has suggested that he will also deploy agents in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, Baltimore and Milwaukee to do the same.
In one of those cities, the city prosecutor has already preemptively warned Trump’s police forces what he will do if they bring the same tactics to Philadelphia:

From the article-
'The hype and the disregard are flip sides of the same biased media coin,' professor says
The infamous Steele dossier from the Russia probe barely generated any attention from the mainstream media when it was largely discreditedlast week -- but critics feel the same pundits who once hyped the story are showing bias by ignoring the latest development.
Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee Friday released newly declassified documents that they say “significantly undercut” the “reliability” of the dossier. MSNBC was arguably the most egregious when it came to pushing the Steele dossier, as Rachel Maddow and Joy Reid were two of its most high-profile cheerleaders -- but MSNBC did not cover the latest news from...
