"I agree with you that Christ is coming back We are living between two advents of Christ into this world. At first he appeared incarnate to reveal
the way of salvation and to make atonement for sin. He will come again at some future time in great power and glory to raise the dead, judge the
world, and destory the earth"
*****Bingo.......and that time is very very short. It has been revealed to me how Satan has controlled this world to date and how he will be allowed
to fulfill prophesy. Its an amazing story and agenda. we are in deep deep trouble in the US today........Very soon.
"Though the fact of the Lord's coming is generally held by Christians, yet all do not allow a future personal coming of Christ I believe the
Scriptures clearly teach a second, personal, visible coming of Christ which is yet future.'
*****you are exactly right on. A rapture at some time we don't know and a second return where Jesus's feet will touch down and he will reign.
The next one that comes WILL NOT be Jesus. He will be a Christ but not Jesus.
"(Acts 1:11) "Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like
manner as ye have seen him go into heaven."
(Matthew 26:64) "Hereafter shall ye see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven."
(Rev. 1:7) "Behold, he cometh with clouds, and every eye shall see him, and they also which piereced him; and all kindreds of the earth shall wail
because of him."
As his first advent was personal, so is the second coming of Christ to be personal. Men ought always be ready to meet him.
"I believe we are now in the "evening time," but the extent to which "it shall be light," or how long the evening time shall continue we have no
means of knowing"
"Yes, I agree that the time is short and the unsaved must be reached. We will reach them with our hearts on fire with the love of the Lord. They will
see Christ through us and our life. Everyone we meet should see Jesus in us and through us. If we are truly his children others will see the light
glowing from our soul within. We are the light in the darkness. We must shine bright and clear to show others the way home."
*****Grandma, this won't work. How can we argue when we agree on every point? Oh well, I guess we will just have to agree, thats all.
We don't have much time.....We cannot know the day or the hour but we can know the season, according to Daniel 9:24 [70th week]. Not even Jesus
knows the hour of his return. Can you imagine?
Matthew 24:36-44 (King James Version)
36But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into
39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered
his house to be broken up.
44Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
Now, according to God's word, he will not allow those in the Occult into Heaven. The Occult is part of Satanism that gives man a limited view into
the Occult but hated by God. In accordance with scripture.
"There is a price to pay for dabbling in things that the God of the Bible has forbidden. Occult practitioners can mock this statement, and those who
consider themselves too 'intelligent' and 'scientific' to accept this to be true can laugh, but one of many questions they cannot answer is this
simple fact: those who have given their lives over to the Lord Jesus Christ have been given the authority to call upon His name to set captives free
(Luke 4:8). The Christian message is one of love and, while there are some ignorant Christians who foolishly berate and ridicule those involved in
these occultic rites, we would only seek to inform the occultist that Jesus is the Name to be called on when you finally realise the danger you have
exposed yourselves to. Please do not leave it too late."
Occultic supernatural power counterfeits the spiritual gifts conferred by the Holy Spirit, e.g. by prophecy, healing, channelling, astral travel and
other 'signs and false wonders' (2 Thessalonians 2:9) such as witchcraft, 'magic', palm reading, fortune telling, ouija boards, tarot cards,
satanism, spiritism, animism; astrology; divination; fetishism, demons and the use of crystal balls. To this list we could add much more.
