    MEANINGS: What is "near"..."soon"..."quickly"...1000 man-years...and the like... in the "eyes" of an all-everything eternal and infinite spirit being of the TRI-UNE GOD?? He is beyond the confines of Man's puny measurement of time and space.

    In truth, of course....
    yet the world is passing away, and many many many multitudes on earth have put him in a box, or statue, or whatever... (contrary to His Commands) .... and keep him there so they don't have to DO what HE SAYS.

    The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

    "love NOT the world, nor the things of the world"
    "we are DEAD to the world, and the world is DEAD to us"
    "lay down your lives DAILY for one another (serve one another in truth, what they NEED, as MORE IMPORTANT than one's own needs) "

    "STOP LYING, one to another" (instructions to an assembly of ekklesia(true believers) in the NT) ...

    "do NOT store up money , gold, silver, treasures on earth, where moths and rust destroys and thieves steal"

    "when the eye is GENEROUS, the WHOLE BODY IS FULL OF LIGHT,
    when the eye is stingy, the whole body is FULL of darkness"

    I agree with all of this except the world, or at least the people of the world being "dead" to us... Does that mean we should not care...?

    God Bless!

    "Selah" - think on this.

    A disciple asked Jesus, Master, will many or few be saved there ? (the town they were looking upon)

    Jesus replied: It is no concern of yours (how many or how few); ("it's none of your business") ,
    Go and speak and do what the Father in heaven shows you to speak and to do.
    (i.e. no matter who responds, nor how many, if any, ALWAYS DO what the FATHER SAYS TO DO)

    re: it is NOT the hearers of HIS WORD who are justified, but the DOERS of HIS WORD who are justified.

    re: who is MY mother and brother and sister?
    WHOEVER HEARS the WORD of GOD
    ..... AND DOES IT.

    the idea of the true God embedded in the world is not passing (away), but lasts for ever; the kingdom of the wicked one is what(the world that) is passing away - after all, the true God is the One That created the world, and everything He creates lasts for ever

    Ecclesiastes 3:14 "I know that, whatever God does, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God does it, that men should fear before him."

    Blessings

    #28 ...what manner of persons ought we to be...?

    2 Peter 3 (NASB)
    4b ...“Where is the promise of His (second) coming?"...
    7 But by His word the present heavens (atmosphere?) and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment ("the day of the LORD") and destruction of ungodly men...
    11 Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way,
    what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,
    12 looking for and hastening the coming of "the day of God"
    14 Therefore, beloved, since you look for these things,
    be diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless,
    15 and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation,
    18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
    To Him be the glory, both now and to "the day of eternity". Amen.

    BE READY!

    Matthew 24 ...Jesus' Prophecy of the "end of the ages": Be Ready for His Second Coming
    42 “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming...
    44 For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.

    Does the "Rapture" lie within "The Parable of the Fig Tree"?? (SEE: verses 32-41!!)

    2 Timothy 2:21
    Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from these things, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work.

    1 Thessalonians 5...["The Day of the Lord"]
    Now as to the times and the epochs, brethren, you have no need of anything to be written to you.
    For you yourselves know full well that "the day of the Lord" will come just like a thief in the night.
    While they are saying, “Peace and safety!”
    then destruction will come upon them suddenly
    like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape...
