You might MISS it (if you are not paying attention) but one momentary comment goes along with observations I have made in previous posts, and it ALL has to do with how Endtime Bible Prophecy MUST/WILL be fulfilled!
A couple of hints…
What was the decision to move the US’s Embassy to Jerusalem all about?
Why is the Israeli PM being nice about/towards Mr T, and vice versa?
And then there’s THIS… (bear with me by first going through this video, then watch and read what follows – it’s a bit “new-agey”, but then creation being what it is, how God created it (physical based on spiritual) it is no wonder that ALL of His Creation is/can be tuned into it on many various levels. Of course God’s desire is to get every individual BACK to a direct personal relationship with Him THROUGH HIMSELF/HIS SON/HIS PERSONAL SACRIFICE FOR REDEMPTION = JESUS. THAT is HIS fore-ordained method and the ONLY way. ‘Nuff said.)
According to Bible Prophecy the “Anti-Christ” sits on a throne, in a temple, in Jerusalem. NOTE: “Anti” means “a type of”!
There are a HUGE amount of SPECIFIC descriptors in Endtime Prophecy about this personage, what he is like in appearance and character, how he comes to power, what he does, AND how he is finally revealed to be and what he does as a result, culminating in the necessity of Jesus’ return to save the world, AGAIN.
Prophecy can seem a bit ambiguous sometimes, but when we are given SO MUCH detail, cross-referenced, and the BULK of it specifically detailing “the time of the end”, even down to days, weeks and months, and years, then THIS means that God is not only “serious” about having us know about it, but it explains the WHAT, the WHY, the HOW, the WHO and WHEN so we CAN know about it BEFORE it happens.
You have to “take it by faith” BEFORE it happens, but AFTER it happens you “will know that a prophet has been among you”, i.e. it should be clear on “Who you can believe”. “Prophecy” means to “forth-tell”, or “foretell”, and God has had it ALL covered in His Word from the beginning, starting with Adam and Eve and coming right up-to-date!
He ALWAYS speaks first! Even the Liar the Devil doesn’t get to open his mouth without God’s permission (or ours)!
THIS is why He gave us His Word in the first place. We have the source, THE Truth, “straight from the horse’s mouth”! WHY would anyone want or be satisfied with anything else, when the Truth is what sets us FREE?
I’ll leave it at that for now.
