    What”tickles the ears” of many Christians is hearing they are the last generation, but every generation including Jesus’s has been.

    And our own lives are shorter than waiting for the return of the messiah.

    So best to say that we meet God when we die and possibly before that if the messiah returns. And we can die any day.

    In saying that. Jesus was often specific about a certain generation with descriptions that are pretty close to these days more than any other.

    Of course, 20 years from now, a generation might even be closer to that description.

    Of course, we must always be ready because we do not know what day will be our last.

    @AndrewAD

    Jesus will come at a time is least expected.

    Bible says that in the last days will be critical times hard to deal with.
    Men will be lovers of themselves rather than lovers of God.
    They will have a form of Godly devotion but prove false to its power.
    Dos that not sound like today: men being lovers of themselves, critical times that for the intuitive Christian are definitely hard to deal with (but not in the way most would assume) – and Jesus saying he will come at a time that is least expected, when people are half asleep?

    Yes true miia.

    Seems weird. On one hand we have the signs to tell us, and on the other, it comes by surprise,

    They key is this verse I feel.

    But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.

    Hi T8,

    If you could grasp prophecy you would not see others as enemies.

    Nick, I do not speak to you that I do because of my grasp or lack of grasp for prophecy.

    No. It is your reluctance to say yes or no and your accusations toward others here saying they are not being led by the Spirit when what you really mean is not believing in your doctrine. The religious world is full of judgemental people who will be held to account for all the people they hindered into the Kingdom when they were at knocking at the door. What I say is true. The Pharisees will be judged for doing that and so will all religious bigots. I hope no one here is or becomes one of these. But the relality is, some choose to be that person and for some, it will be too late to say sorry when they realise what they became.

    Hi t8.

    Firstly, that verse is about “that day” sneaking up on us like a thief.

    “That day” is obviously the day which Peter speaks about in the chapter of 2nd Peter 3.

    So we have to be ready for “that day”, and not some other day. Our beliefs on that day have to be solid (so we are not misled).

    Secondly… It’s starting to make sense to me. There are many today who prophecy that the end is coming, and show us signs. But are they awake or are they half asleep. If they are living in sin then they are half asleep. They are not ready.

    If we can overcome the temptations of the world, and understand how God is feeling and perhaps why God is silent. If we can see that our own sins are distancing us from God, merely by we ourselves distancing ourselves from God by the walls we put up, then… to simply return to God through overcoming our own obstacles… would mean that with God we would be awake and not half asleep. If that makes sense?

    God is love, and God forgives us.

    Someone said to me today that God is just waiting.

    But that day will come like a thief in the night. When people least expect it.

    People look for signs. They look for war and suffering on a global scale. To me, the sign is complacency, among other things.

    Hi,

    Matt 16.22

    Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him saying

    ’God forbid it Lord! This shall never happen to you’

    But he turned and said to Peter

    ’Get behind me satan! You are a stumbling block to me; for you are not setting your mind on God’s interests but man’s’

     

    So the first attack on the kingdom by Satan was to offer humanism instead of the truth of God.

    Greek logic philosophy infiltrated the teachings and gained acceptance.

    Isaac Newton too, is regarded as a humanist.

    “Jesus was often specific about a certain generation with descriptions that are pretty close to these days more than any other.”

    Yes Jesus was specific about a certain generation but in the context of those descriptions is the destruction of the Jerusalem of his own time. The descriptions are closer to his own time than any other. And Jesus was very specific when he said “Truly I say unto you there are some standing here who shall not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power” and this idea is reiterated throughout the gospels.

    The last days and second coming have always tickled peoples ears and throughout Christian history every generation has been the last with differing prophecy scenarios for each one.

    ha ha ha. By who and what authority?

    Regarded by who, Nick?

    I see you like to judge all but yourself.

    We should judge ourselves first because we will meet God and give an account. Better now than then.

    So called Christanity loves to get their ears tickled, that is why those lying televangelist are making billions of dollars, tickling their folowers ears, while the decieved give buckets of money to them. They are twice dead, in this life and the one to come. Clouds without water, Liers and decievers, spuing out their own shame, to the destruction of themselves, as well, as to all who follow them, cursed childern, who themselves are the spon of Satan.

    May GOD come and strick them dowm, crushing them and their lies, into eternal damnation.

    My prayer is how long, how long, “Ò” GOD will these things continue, before you raise your arm and crush those decieving dogs under foot Father, how long before it’s over and you rightiousness reigns in the earth? Is it not enough by now FATHER?

    peace and love to all that are in the truth. …..gene

    “So called Christanity loves to get their ears tickled, that is why those lying televangelist are making billions of dollars, tickling their folowers ears, while the decieved give buckets of money to them”

    But what is the favorite verse of the televangelists you speak of?  Mal 3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. The very verse you used at me in the other thread about faith needing proof.

    The televangelists love this one for if you give your money to them then you give God the opportunity to make yourself rich and pour you out a blessing and vs 11 he’ll rebuke the devourer -ie devil and the curse of the law and make you prosperous in every area of your life. And all the souls they save with your money will also go into your account in heaven! Isn’t that a great deal Gene? how can you beat that? Prove God! Let God prove himself by giving your livelihood to Him through his servants. Psalm 35:27  Let the Lord be magnified which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servants!

    And many of these televangelists also claim to have seen Jesus-Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, Jessie Duplantis as well as many that are passed away such as Kenneth Hagin,Lester Summrall, Oral Roberts and others and they were and are all filthy rich living in in million dollar mansions. It seems God really proves himself to them huh? That’s why they have such great faith and boast of all kinds of miracles, and claim God always upholds his word and answers all their prayers.

    And so many of the end time prophecy pundits are floating on cloud nine with millions of dollars off all their book sales which tickle the ears of the faithful yearning for their mansions in the sky, vengeance on their enemies  and rulership on earth during the millennial reign.

    Do you think they are all lying Gene? about seeing Jesus and performing miracles? So many people believe them and they claim they have proof of God and boast that God has made them rich. If all these have proof for their faith then why do you think they are wrong? God certainly seems to be answering their prayers.

    AndrewAD. …scripture say “have you faith, have it unto yourself”. Faith is personal, “for God gives a measure of faith to all. But those televangelist’s faith is in the gullibility of there following. Who want to recieve money and riches like tbeir teacher. There only proof they give is how gullible people really are, who can’t see past there shams.

    Let go back to your mentioning of a quote i gave from Mal 3:10, because that was one of the first things i did to “prove” GOD was indeed in my life and that he truly existed.

    I was a young man around 30 years old, married with two childern. Was brought up with parents and grand parents who believe in God. So i “supposed” there was a GOD, but had “no real” proof myself, but was schearching for that proof earnestly, i truly wanted to know if that invisible God did exist and if that “invisible” God would prove his existence to me, so i studied scriptures seeking something that i could find that would give “me” that proof, i was seeking “hard evidence” myself, not hear say of others.

    So one day while reading and studying i came across MAL 3:10, where God gave the challenge to the Israelites, to prove him by giving their tithes. So i thought there it is, a way to get “MY PROOF”
    I needed, in those days we had very little money to live on. I told my wife i was going to give a tenth of my check to a church, any church, it didn’t matter to me which church it was, i just wanted to get my proof of a God. My wife argued with me about taking money we need to live on and giving it to a church, but i told her i was only to do it one time, and if God did not do anything that proved himself then i would do it no more.

    So i sent it to a church my Father was involved with, and waited to see what would happen, after all i took God’s challenge right, so now lets see his proof, well the week drug on and i saw nothing for a few days, but was still waiting. I used to to buy things and fix them up and sall them on the side for extra money, besides my regular job, about the third day i recieved a phone call from a friend who know i did that, and he told me about a old haybailer, that a farmer had for sale for 50 dollars, so i went and bought it, and took it to my house, to repair it and put it up for sale, then about a day or two later a person knocked on my door and ask me if i wanted to sell it, i told him i didn’t know if it worked yet because i hadn’t had time to work on it yet, so he said would i sell is as is, i said yes i would and ask how much would he give me for it, he responed 250 dollars, is it yours.

    This was the first proof God gave me, i was so excited, i told my wife look what happened, she said it was just a quncedence, that could have happened even if i didn’t send the money to that church. So i said it could have, so i sent another tithe in and the very next week another thing happened right out of the blue a guy came and brought a old Jeep i had fixed up for way more then i paid for it, so i tithed again m then that same week i got a raise on in pay at my work, then so i thited again, the next week a person came by and offered me way more money for and old tractor then i gave for it, it was one thing after another, i took a test for a contractors liecense and the test took almost 8 hours to do, i din’t think i passed it, but my wife called me at work and said i did. so even my wife admitted these things could not just be a consequence, just to many things there was something going on.

    Then i became an electrical contractor, when i began i had to quite my jod , and no money was comming in, i had printed up about a thousand cards, and went all over handing them out after several 3 week i had not one responce not one, i thought i had made a mistake becomming a contractor, money was running out, i had not yet begin to pray, but just relied on God proving himself to me by tithing response, so i decided to seek him through prayer.

    So i told my wife i was going to pray to God and see what happens, i prayed, and the phone started to ring with Job requests, one after another, but not one from the cards i handed out, it was simply a mircale, and after a month or so the work would dry up, and the phone stopped ringing, so i told my wife again i will pray and ask God for help, i no sooner got up from prayer and the phone started ringing again, one jobe after another and the work lasted for another month and stopped again, so i prayed again and t h e phone started ringing again, this just kept happen over and over, untill both me and my wife had to laugh, at t h e mircales God the father was doing in our lives.

    This was jut the beginning of the miracles AndrewAD, one thing though i was from the heart seeking real “EVIDENCE” OF A TRUE GOD AND HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH ME, AND HE WAS FAITHFUL TO “HIS” WORDS.

    Peace and love to you and yours. …….gene
