Articles of the Day 2/9/15: Lawlessness
Repent! The time of the Lord is close at hand. Open your heart to Jesus Christ. He is knocking at your door. Let him in and take up your cause before the Lord. Jesus Christ died for your sins, he was killed for them, he rose again and he will return again.Read Matthew 24:4-14 and ask yourself are these things taking place now?
“Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s chances of preventing violet clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces have been decreasing by the week.”
“Jewish Home Chairman Naftali Bennett stood behind his statements on surging lawlessness in the Arab sector Sunday evening.”
It is always interesting when politicians use a bible term. Perhaps it is no coincidence. The term is used in reference to sin in the New Testament. I would agree the Palestinians are sinning greatly against God.
“Shocking new documents show how Palestinian Authority studies details of each terrorist act before issuing wages to jailed terrorists.”
And where does all that money come from? The US, UN and the EU….oh and rich Arabs of course.
“In revenge for burning of pilot, Jordan strikes 56 air raids since last Thursday; Kerry says fifth of ISIS-held land taken back.”
“Iraqi troops to launch major operation in ‘weeks ahead,’ US says; Hashemite Kingdom launches 56 air raids.”
“In this study, I’d like to take another look at Revelation 20-22 specifically for the purpose of clarifying the sequence of events that are contained therein. This won’t be a verse by verse study, but will focus on what I believe to be the way John wanted us to understand what he was telling us.
Let me begin by stating once again my belief that the book of Revelation is laid out chronologically for the most part. But there are places where John followed a particular scene to its conclusion and then back tracked to pick up the story where he left off. A good example of this concerns the account of the two witnesses. Their entire 1260 day ministry was compressed into 11 verses between the 6th and 7th trumpet judgments (Rev. 11:3-13) and yet it will actually span most of the Great Tribulation.”
Q. The Old Testament saints were set free from Abraham’s bosom and then went up to paradise when Jesus went to the center of the earth for 3 days. However, they will not get their bodies until after the Great Tribulation ends. So the Church saints (and angels) will ride back with Jesus at the 2nd Coming but the O.T. souls have to wait until the battle is over. Right? If yes, do they have to wait to get their spiritual bodies because they are connected to the 70th week by being Jewish?
A. We’ve got a little confusion of terms here, so let’s begin by straightening them out. The Hebrew word for the place the spirits of dead people went is Sheol, sometimes translated “the abode of the dead”. Those who died in faith were said to be comforted there by Abraham while they waited for the crucifixion to open Heaven’s gates for them. This is where the name Abraham’s bosom comes from. The Greek name for Sheol is Hades, and Abraham’s bosom was called Paradise by the Greeks. (More)
