Several more things come to mind as well One is what GOD has done before He will do again. Mankind has passed through two major steps related to knowledge and a concern GOD had that we reach a capability of self generated eternal life. Once at the Garden of Eden then again at the Tower of Babel. The third time is upon us this hour. Our technology is far beyond our wisdom and yet man seeks to create life and gain knowledge without wisdom in all things in our cursed bodies and sinful minds which is not GOD's plan.

Excellent point. Whenever man believes he no longer has to rely on God, or where he believes his own wisdom makes God obselete, then God lets us know where we stand.

Next is Elijah. Indeed he came again {John The Baptist} and I believe the third one lives amongst us today although he will go home before the Second Coming. The one telling all Made way for the LORD. This man is telling us make way in our hearts which is how salvation is received. I won't say the name but he has help lead more to Christ and preached to more persons in his lifetime than any other person in mans history.

Maybe, but be wary.

Mat 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

The next will likely raise some eye brows but I see it also as true. GOD called out Noah before judging the world. GOD called His People out of Egypt before passing judgment on it's people. Third round? I believe He will call His Chosen out as well before judgment {The Tribulations} take place on this earth. As earth is in kaos below the Wedding Feast is underway on high. Thus the prophecy of the ten virgins.

I believe God promises to protect his people, but that can be done without leaving the world. The plagues were upon Egypt while Israel was still there. They survived the death angel because they obeyed the Lord when he told them they would be spared by putting the blood of the passover lamb on their lintels.

The dream Daniel had was sealed and not to be understood till later when reveal, communication, and knowledge increase. Indeed much of the prophecies can be seen as having happened or conditions prevalent for them to happen. His dream was not to be understood till the final age. By those who seek to understand it. The world as a whole who rejects Christ will not.

Agreed and good summary.

Oh I am. Only GOD himself knows that one for certain. The man is not without sin nor wrong but neither were Elijah nor John The Baptist or it was never mentioned they were. Elijah however like Enoch was called up though.

It's just the man who is a messenger and makes no claims to be anything but just that. I don't think he even realizes what impact he has had on the modern age and actually accomplished. If he does is very humble about it. His mission in life has been to preach the Gospel to the world and he literally just about accomplished doing just that in his lifetime. Obviously modern technology has made it a lot more possible.

Our Women’s Bible Study is just completing the study on Daniel by Beth Moore. It’s amazing and I heartily commend it to anyone who is interested in studying this book.
