  • PENTECOST Sunday! Reversing the Curse of Babel

    05/30/2020 1:03:24 PM PDT · 3 of 3
    sasportas to CondoleezzaProtege

    How many times have we seen posts here on FR, saying they can’t understand the minds of the left. Some saying: “It’s a disease of the mind,” and so on.

    Our Bibles should tell us, and it does: its the mindset of the tower of Babel, our modern socialist-Marxists globalists, who seek to bring in their one world socialist utopia. Which is why they see Biblical Christians, conservatives, and DJT, the worst obstacles to that goal.

    Millennials especially, so brainwashed by what they see and hear in the media, etc.

    The destruction of Babylon the great, the endtime manifestation of the tower of Babel, is just around the corner. As it was in the days of Noah so shall it be. Notice what God says just before the judgment of the great flood, about “the youth,” our present day millennials...and those involved in the lawless riots as we speak:

    Gen 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
    Gen 8:21 The LORD said… the imagination of man’s heart IS EVIL FROM HIS YOUTH.

    A great tribute to the infantryman on this Memorial Day, long overdue.

    And lets not forget the sub sailors and airmen who flew the bomber missions. Their mortality rate was probably equal to the infantry...if not worse.

    Europe learned nothing at the battle of Tours, nothing from the third Reich, and nothing from the EU. Europe is incorrigible.

    >Nor from the Napoleonic wars, the Kaiser’s Great War, and if Russia is considered part of Europe as they used to: Lenin and the Bolsheviks, Trotsky, Stalin.

    And to make matters more intense, Taiwan has reportedly said they will come down on the side of Hong Kong against the commies if worse comes to worse there. It’s not hard to see the situation in Hong Kong widening to include Taiwan.

    I’ll have to say, taking a good look at Kemp after first taking office, I would not have thought that he’d become the man he has become. Hat’s off to Georgia’s courageous governor.

    correction:

    Not a word about the fact that what they thought were canals was but the planet’s topography.

    I can remember some of our school books had quotations from scientists who said that there were canals on Mars, they seen them in their telescopes, obvious proof of civilization. And when man can build a space ship that can travel that far he might find life forms similar to us.

    And now that they have gotten there, the are silent as an oyster about the complete absence of any life forms. Not a word about the face that what they thought were canals was but the planet’s topography.

    Here we go again, the atheists are at it again, this time they are seeing “planets just like earth.” At least they haven’t claimed seeing canals there...yet.

    Atheists grasp at anything they think will disprove God and the Bible.

    My bad to have left out Ontario. Having traveled through the western provinces I mentioned so many times, from top to bottom, I naturally can’t comment on anything east of Manitoba.

    I’m sure there are many such as yourself in those provinces.

    As an Alaskan, next door neighbors to our friends in the Yukon who are mostly liberty lovers like most of us in Alaska, this is really great news. Don’t want to leave out Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba (not so much BC).

    As I remember, you (Connie) are from Alberta, right?

    I’ll be dropping by to register. God bless.

  • 'Four Horsemen are ACTIVE’

    05/12/2020 8:52:32 PM PDT · 20 of 28
    sasportas to Paul46360

    The events of chapters 4&5 of Revelation take place in a heavenly courtroom. Courtrooms have to do with justice being meted out to the guilty.

    The seven sealed scroll in the right hand of God is written within and without, denoting the very large caseload to be dealt with.

    The four horsemen are the first four of the seals, they denote judgment...as also the last three.

    It is my understanding that Matt. 24 is the key to interpreting the seven seals. The first four: the antichrist goes forth, with war, famine, and pestilence in his wake. Followed by the great tribulation, the sntichrist ruling an endtime one world government (seal five in Revelation), being closed out by the day of the Lord, the fullness of God’s wrathful judgment (seal six), then Armageddon and the second coming (seal seven).

    If we follow Jesus in Matt. 24, then it is the antichrist we are to expect first, pandemic (pestilence in seal four) the last thing following in his wake. The antichrist being the most conspicuous feature of the endtime.

    Unless you think Trump is the antichrist (for many reasons, I do not) then seal one hasn’t been opened yet. Which means this pandemic is but a harbinger of things to come.

    As soon as someone says “general strike” you know you are dealing with a cretin who is mired in 30s Bolshevism. Pretty pathetic.

    >Historian Nesta Webster, who wrote back in the 1930’s, said a general strike by the Bolshevics was in the making then... in one fell swoop bring down capitalism.

    History repeats itself.

    This AOC woman is a Bolshevik from hell.

    In my opinion, it is far more critical that our “preparation” be the very things we are dealing with here. One must be prepared spiritually first and foremost.

    As a former pretribber, I had to get to the bottom of this issue. It took me about a year, it was tough, I had to unlearn almost everything I thought I knew. I was worth every minute. If one will get to the bottom of this issue, he is getting “prepared,” as you say.

    With all due respect, sir, as long as you are pretrib, you are not sealed.

    It’s not just a matter of “having the Spirit,” its a matter of whether you allow it to lead you into all truth (see John 16:13). Which you are NOT doing following the theories of men. If you want the truth on this, you follow a certain order: Jesus in Matt. 24 first, then Paul.

    With all due respect, you are getting the cart before the horse. You don’t start with Paul, you start with Jesus in Matt. 24.

    Jesus knows more about prophecy than anybody, he the greatest prophet that ever lived.

    He knew he was about to go to the cross, and the church to be left in the hands of the apostles. He knew what would befall his church in the endtime, the apostles the “transcendent you” in his discourse, he thus gave all the signs for his church to look for right up to the “end.” And that “end” is in verses 29-31.

    He said nothing about a pretrib rapture, only the one at the “end.”

    Paul and every other NT writer, simply followed Jesus in Matt. 24. The additional second coming pretribs think they see in Paul’s writings, including the ones you mentioned, is simply the same post-trib coming he set forth in Matt. 24.

    It’s that simple, really. It’s all done in one event.

    My point was the passage,”In your patience possess ye your souls” was from Luke 21, a parallel to Matt. 24 and Mark 13 referring to the tribulation. Lkewise the passage from Rev. 14, “THIS is the patience of the saints.”

    The two passages referring to Christians who find themselves in the great tribulation - with no hint from Jesus of them being taken out previously in a pretrib rapture, by the way - needing patience.

    The passage in Rev. 14 in effect saying, you know when Jesus said that about patience in Luke 21? well, HERE is the patience he was referring to: “HERE is the patience of the saints.”

    I know, I know, you don’t think you will even be in that situation, but you will. (because there is no such thing as two second comings of Christ)

    And when you find yourself there just remember what Jesus told you...if you don’t want to lose your soul, have patience.

    Your frustration that others here are content with what they believe regarding the coming of Christ for His people is apparent.....so why should it bother you so as those posting are quite aware of what will occur in the tribulation for God has clearly revealed that to all?

    >I realize pretribs are content with what they believe. I know, for I was once pretrib myself.

    As to what “bothers” me: it bothers me just like other false doctrines bother me, and need to be called out for what they are...man made doctrines, or as in one of my posts here, the “private interpretatioons” of men.

    Frustration? Once again, you don’t seem to understand.

    Concerning these times of the pandemic, and the great tribulation to come, Jesus told us “In your patience possess ye your souls.”

    It is the Irvingites and Darbyites of England back in the early 1800’s who were impatient and frustrated, so much so they conjured up a pretrib rapture with all its trimmings - which impatient and frustrated pretribs have followed ever since.

    Notice the tribulational setting in Rev. 14, where it is said of the faithful, “Here is the patience of the saints.”

    You’ve got it backwards, you see. It is pretribs that are frustrated and impatient.
