Nothing wrong with looking at the signs as God gave signs for those who watch. However, it is also correct that it is more important to know God. My thinking is if you love God and his son, you will avidly look for his coming as that day would be very special to you. But if you were not interested in the signs of his coming, then that probably reflects your lack of care.August 3, 2015 at 8:45 pm #801595
Terr. Let me get this straight. Are you saying that Jesus Christ has already returned?August 4, 2015 at 8:34 am #801634
yes he did in 70 AD to fulfil his own prophecy what also was the punishment that God foretold the Israelites at the time of entering the promised land of not corrupt themselves with the pagans living in there ,
Jesus comes to accomplish his father will ,the end of this aged no one knows it but the father ,but we have today the privilege to gain everlasting life through faith in Christ redemption given by his father
in a few words ;JN 3:19 “This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil.
JN 3:20 “ For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
JN 3:21 “But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.”
JN 4:23 “But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.
JN 4:24 “God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
if you can understand those scriptures you will understand that everything what is said in scriptures turns around thisAugust 5, 2015 at 2:32 pm #801755
Okay now I understand where you are coming from now.
So are we in the Millennial reign now according to you?August 5, 2015 at 3:51 pm #801758
I have already answered that question in my previous quote ;but NO for we still in what Jesus called THE TIME TO COLLECT THOSE THAT worship God in “truth and spirit ”
now if you want to go further into this ;by reading Daniel 2;44 think the stone that comes from the mountain of God we know it is Christ and yet he will destroy all other type of government ,powers,tell me HOW and what is the time for it ?August 7, 2015 at 1:19 pm #801874
The stone is yet to strike the statue IMO, but when it does, the Kingdom will grow, perhaps during the Millennial reign.
I would say the stone strikes when the kingdoms of the world are replaced by the Kingdom of God.
At the moment, the Kingdom is within us or among us. But it doesn’t rule the planet and nations.August 7, 2015 at 1:56 pm #801876
the stone came for the Christ and king of the kingdom came and he will destroy all other government /power/authority , how does it happen ?
look around you and go back 2000 years and see how the people was thinking then and how the powers where set up and how the teachings of Christ came to be in today the most powerful world powers ,and they did not have a choice but had to change their ways and it will come to be that the world will have to bend to the Christ way for it is the only way to peace ,Gandhi put the british empire to his knees without one weapon so will Christ bring the world powers to his knees ,the power of God’s word does it allAugust 9, 2015 at 11:17 pm #801930
When does the Millennial reign start in your view then? The past, now, later?August 10, 2015 at 4:54 am #801937
first ;Rev 19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds flying in midair, “Come, gather together for the great supper of God,
Rev 19:18 so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and mighty men, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, small and great.”
and we still here ‘
then ;Rev 19:20 But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.
and then; Rev 19:21 The rest of them were killed with the sword that came out of the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.
then; Rev 20:1 And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain.
Rev 20:2 He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.
Rev 20:3 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.
but just before the Millennium start ;Rev 20:4 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 for 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.
Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years (or one day with God)
Rev 20:7 When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison ;;;this is yet to come
1Co 15:23 But each in his own turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him.(the first resurrection)August 10, 2015 at 8:30 pm #801984
So Millennium hasn’t begun, but Christ has returned?August 11, 2015 at 1:07 am #801985
yes ,in the clouds (not seen but understood as he said;)in 70 AD ,Mt 26:64 “Yes, it is as you say,”Jesus replied. “But I say to all of you: In the future you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven.”
Rev 1:7 Look, he is coming with the clouds,
and every eye will see him,
even those who pierced him;
and all the peoples of the earth(in that time ) will mourn because of him.
So shall it be! Amen.August 11, 2015 at 9:13 am #801991
I agree that he is sitting at the right-hand of God in Heaven, but are you also saying that he has already come in the clouds?August 11, 2015 at 2:23 pm #802026
yes Jesus came in 70 AD to bring to a end the temple and all the wicked ones of Israel to fulfil the prophecy that was written many hundred of years before and that Christ told the people of Jerusalem while he was on his way to the golgotha to put to death
Lk 23:27 A large number of people followed him, including women who mourned and wailed for him.
Lk 23:28 Jesus turned and said to them, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children.
Lk 23:29 For the time will come when you will say, ‘Blessed are the barren women, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!’
Lk 23:30 Then
“ ‘they will say to the mountains, “Fall on us!”
and to the hills, “Cover us!” ’
Lk 23:31 For if men do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?”
Lk 19:44 They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God’s coming to you.”
Dt 4:24 For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.
Dt 4:25 After you have had children and grandchildren and have lived in the land a long time—if you then become corrupt and make any kind of idol, doing evil in the eyes of the LORD your God and provoking him to anger,
Dt 4:26 I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you this day that you will quickly perish from the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess. You will not live there long but will certainly be destroyed.
Dt 4:27 The LORD will scatter you among the peoples, and only a few of you will survive among the nations to which the LORD will drive you.
Dt 4:28 There you will worship man-made gods of wood and stone, which cannot see or hear or eat or smell.
Dt 4:29 But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul.August 11, 2015 at 2:26 pm #802030
Okay. So are we still in this age or are we in a new age?August 11, 2015 at 2:40 pm #802035
WE STILL IN THE AGE THAT FOLLOWS the end of the destruction of God’s temple and the scattering of its people ,
but from then on ,Jesus said that NOW IS THE TIME TO WORSHIP gOD IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH ,MEANING YOU LOVE GOD YOU GO TO HIM ;WITH YOUR SPIRIT AND HEART AND SOUL BUT IN TRUTH ,NO LIES NO DECEIT
THE NEW AGE WILL FOLLOW THIS ONE ,but no one knows when that will be yet
