That is one interpretation fraught with numerous problems, the least of which is that if such were true, the God doesn’t believe in communicating the true meaning of His Word when He unilaterally issues a contract with those men He unilaterally gives His Word.
Well then, guess I’ll look forward to the Third Coming.
Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
The generation which saw Israel become a nation again in a day in 1948
will not completely die off until all the rest of the END TIMES prophecies [i.e. those up through Armageddon and the beginning of the Millenial reign of Christ] are fulfilled.
NO OTHER INTERPRETATION MAKES SENSE WITH THE COUNSEL OF THE WHOLE OF SCRIPTURE.
NO OTHER INTERPRETATION MAKES SENSE WITH UNDISTORTED FACTS OF HISTORY.
BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD.
If you get tired of reading trash from the enemy of your soul, you might consider some prayerful preparations . . . such as those themes mentioned at post # 71 here:
CHRIST HIMSELF SAID TO WATCH . . . the parable about the 10 virgins was about BEING READY. The hogwash at the top of this thread is about going back to sleep; willful blindness and hell-fostered deception about the times and priorities we live amidst. May God have mercy on all who read such lies from hell. May HE GIVE THEM TRUTH TO COUNTER ACT SUCH LIES IN THEIR INNER MAN, BY HIS SPIRIT.
LET GOD ARISE AND HIS ENEMIES BE SCATTERED.
[Jesus told the disciples he would come back and take them to heaven in their lifetime. If he didn’t come back, then, he lied.]
No. You are lying because you don’t search the scriptures. If you did, you would not be an amillenialist or a sectarian religious Christian or even state such a slander.
You did it in ignorance is my opinion. However, you need to as Jesus the Christ of Israel, Lord and Saviour of the body of Christ, and coming King has said;
“Search the scriptures, for in them you think you have life and they are they which speak of me.”
You would do well to heed the warning because there is A WAY THAT SEEMETH RIGHT UNTO A MAN BUT THE END THEREOF IS DEATH.
You ARE partly right, however. Many events which fundamentalist make-it-up-as-you-go preachers ae waiting for have happened already. Your mistake is you are still holding onto some of their false presumptions. There has been no rapture between the time of John and today, as certain of these preachers understand it. Yet, the dead saints have risen to Heaven. The body of Christ is manifest in the world today, and we are living in the age where Satan has been been let loose apon the world.
The Kingdom of God is still at hand. It has not left, and never will. Where is it?
Maybe there’s some stubborn old 2030 year old coot who is still alive someplace.
Seeing that the Second Coming hasn’t arrived, it suggests that the word “generation” has a different meaning in this context. Nice try, fella.
I must have missed the newspaper accounts of this event.
II Tim 2:16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. 17 And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; 18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.
Also...You very conveniently did NOT quote Rev 20:2-3...
“He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. 3 He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.”
Explain to everyone, EXACTLY when that 1000 year period was when satan did NOT deceive the world because he was bound in the Abyss.
No vague garbage reply, no pride filled boasting, false assumption, or misdirection, just the dates when satan did NOT deceive the world for 1000 years.
Also, you very conveniently (for your purposes) left out a key part of Rev 4...you know, that part about the beheaded believers coming back to life and reigning with Christ.
You creatively quoted Rev. 4 as...
“Rev 20:4 ...and I saw the souls of them that had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus, ... and they lived, and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
But the WHOLE verse reads...
“I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”
Explain to everyone what evidence you have that all the beheaded believers came to life and are apparently now reigning with Christ!
You do not use the whole counsel of god, but twist scripture for your own deceptive purposes and thereby attempt to deceive believers into false beliefs, based upon lies.
In Bible study, we say; “Any verse taken out of context is a pretext.”
Be very careful to proclaim yourself to be a teacher of God's Word, lest you lead any of His children astray from His truth.
“Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers and sisters, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.” Jas 3:1
You sir are teaching false doctrine and are a false prophet.
You would be very wise to be silent on this whole matter of Bible teaching and to cease your attempt to deceive God's children. You have shown yourself to be a false prophet and will one day be held to account for the little ones you have led astray. You are warned.
And the next thing we would see is, the Bride coming out of Heaven
Forgettin' something there, aren't ya??? If you're are standing here on a piece of ground and you see heaven opens up and the Bride heading down, THE CHURCH, that means you ain't part of it...
The Wedding is OVER...And you missed it...I'd be a little nervous if I was you...
There is NOTHING in Scripture that suggests you can become part of the Bride AFTER the Wedding ceremony is done...
Well, I will say one thing, it certainly does seem like Satan is running the show right now doesn’t it ... but then he was cast down of old and always has been causing trouble down here.
