Very Well said ReginaAdonna/
What will happen will happen in Father's timing and most likely not at all in the ways that people attempt to interpret in prophecy. Just open your
hearts, walk in Christ's footsteps and be ready - no matter when it occurs.
Deciphering prophecy, especially 'Revelation' and Prophetic Scriptures should never be attempted because of deception.
Let no one deceive you by any means, for that day shall not come except there come a falling away............And for this cause God shall send them
strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness (2
Thess. 2:3-4/ 9-12)
'shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect (Matt. 24:24)
Ones own opinion may count in certain matters, but the Word of God can not, be an opinion, it must be the Truth!
Miracles will greatly increase....as it will draw people to see the wonders in the sky.....the main area in which Satan works his miracles(prince of
the air(Eph 2:2)
"Many will say to Me in that day,
Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name?
and in Thy name have cast out devils?
and in Thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them,
I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity" (Matt. 7:22-23).
Ones own interpretation of Scripture, can be ones own downfall.
Writing of the Church Fathers(1st 800 years)
"Therefore, brethren, stand fast,
and hold the traditions which ye have been taught,
whether by word,
or our epistle" (2 Thess. 2:15).
"There be some that trouble you,
and would pervert the Gospel of Christ.
But though we, or an angel from heaven,
preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be anathema.
As we said before, so say I now again: If any preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received,
let him be anathema" (Gal. 1:8-9).
Spiritual Deception is likely when one strays from the true teachings of Jesus Christ(Christians)
Jesus Christ Himself selected and taught the Apostles (as it was done in the Old Testament...priesthood)They in turn selected others as their
successors through annointing (Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon David from that day on" (I Sam. 16:13; cf. I Sam. 10:6, 10-13).
Traditions of the Church is very important, whether by Word or Scripture...
Second coming of Christ?
"Take heed to yourselves,
lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing,
drunkenness, and cares of this life,
and that Day come on you unexpectedly.
For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth" (Lk. 21:34-36).
As we do not know the exact date and time....we should always be ready for physical death!
Suffering of all people, at the time of the Antichrists rule on earth?
for their sake this time will be shortened (Mat. 24:21-22)
Some shall die before hand because of the suffering and sorrows/but we are told to ''lift your heads up, for the end is drawing near” (Lk.
"For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west;
so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
" Prior to this, the "sign of the Son of Man will appear in Heaven,"
and having seen it,
"all the peoples of the world will mourn" (Mt. 24:30)
"Then they will see the Son of Man, coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory, and all His angels with Him … Then He will sit on
the throne of His glory…" (Mt. 24:30, 25:31, Mk. 13:26).
Christ came to give His soul for the salvation of many; then He will come to judge the world and recompense everyone according to his deeds (Acts
17:31; Mt. 24:27)
