A Powerful 7 Year Tribulation Period is coming Daniel 9:27💧😢get savedThe Two Witnesses Killed—Revelation 11:7-14 A prophesied end time evil dictator is to come " The Beast 666" Rev 13 you don't want to be on Earth 🌍 doing his time 🕙 💧😢 Urgent don't take the Mark of the Beast "Antichrist
Times of Tribulation (Revelation 6-11) >Seven Trumpets >6th trumpet >The two witnesses killed
We continue to think about John’s vision of the two witnesses. Up to now the witnesses have prophesied with power, conquering all enemies. But now there's tragedy.
We said that the two witnesses and their prophecies signify the power of God’s two oaths about Jesus, that he would be anointed both Priest and King. But now suddenly (Revelation 11:7) there is a dramatic turn of events. The Beast is about to come up from the Abyss and the two witnesses are killed! However, then their power is truly seen, for they are resurrected to life and ascend into heaven.
1 The Two Witnesses Die
Beast will make war In coming visions, John is told, a beast will come up out of the abyss to make war (cf Revelation 11:7, 17:8, 19:19.) When John later saw this beast, he wrote that it "had horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon" (Revelation 13:11-12).
This beast represents false priesthood and false doctrine, and is identified as "the false prophet" (Revelation 16:13). He opposes the priesthood and testimony of Christ.
When this beast makes war, he kills the two witnesses (Revelation 11:7). This signifies that whilst Satan cannot stop the gospel being preached, he can spread false religion and for a short time of tribulation overcome the word of God with apostasy.
Note —APOSTASY is a definite falling away from the true faith, a turning to the teaching and practice of error, trampling God’s Son underfoot (Hebrews 10:26-31). Not a stumbling, from which one repents and recovers with the help of Christ (Hebrews 4:14-16).
2 A Macabre Celebration
Earth will rejoice The two dead witnesses lie unburied in the streets of Jerusalem. Wicked people from many nations look upon the corpses with joy. They celebrate and send gifts to one another, glad to be no longer tormented by the two witnesses who preached the truth of Christ’s testimony.
Where their Lord was crucified The great city John saw, where the dead witnesses lay in the street, is Jerusalem because that is "where our Lord was crucified" (Revelation 11:8).
The city is "spiritually called Sodom and Egypt" (Revelation 11:8) because they were places of perversion and false religion.
There is a variant reading in the older manuscripts, "where their Lord was crucified". That is a poignant expression reflecting the tragedy of people rejecting the testimony and refusing to recognize their true Lord and Christ and Saviour.
Three and a half days The wicked celebration lasts but "three and a half days" (Revelation 11:9). "Days" to show the shortness of the time. "Three and a half" to indicate tribulation.
3 Resurrection and Ascension
After [TRANSITION] So far in this vision (Revelation 11:1-10) John has been writing not what he is seeing but rather what "someone said" he would be seeing (Revelation 11:1).
That is why John says the witnesses "will prophesy" (Revelation 11:3) and the beast "will make war" (Revelation 11:7) and people "will send gifts" (Revelation 11:10). John has not seen these things yet, but he will see them anon.
Now at verse 11, (Revelation 11:11), the vision catches up. John is now recording events "after three and a half days" in the vision. The vision is now ahead of John and he is recording not what he will see, but what he has seen.
Breath of life The two dead witnesses are raised to life, bringing fear on the wicked who were looking at the corpses (Revelation 11:11).
The witnesses live again, but they prophesy no more because they had finished their testimony before they were killed (Revelation 11:7).
Come up here! A loud voice called them from heaven saying, "Come up here!" (Revelation 11:12).
The two witnesses went up into heaven in a cloud observed by their enemies. There followed destruction in the city and people were frightened into giving praise to God (Revelation 11:12-13).
All persecuted Christians can take courage from this, because though they be killed and scorned, they will rise again when Jesus shouts the upward call, and they like the two witnesses will ascend to glory (1Thessalonians 4:13-18).
We continue to think about John’s vision of the two witnesses. Up to now the witnesses have prophesied with power, conquering all enemies. But now there's tragedy
This dramatic vision of the two witnesses, their death, non-burial, resurrection, and ascension, has a very important meaning.
As we have learned previously, the two witnesses signify the two oaths which God made about Christ, and their prophesying of the testimony of Jesus represents the performing of the Great Commission (Mark 16:15-16).
The Great Commission will be fulfilled, and the gospel will remain "the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Gentile" (Romans 1:16).
Nevertheless there will be times of tribulation when the enemies of Christ seem to have the upper hand. That, however, is temporary —the resurrected and ascended Christ will be seen to have the victory with power and glory on the great day of God when he comes for the great judgment of mankind and the ingathering into heaven of all his holy ones.This period is mentioned in the book of Revelation and also Daniel which provides additional details as to its duration:8Revelation Rev. 12:1+ states the length of time this persecution and hiding of the Jews in the wilderness will last . . . it will last 1,260 days (Rev. Rev. 12:6+) . . . Revelation Rev. 12:14+ states that Israel will hide in the wilderness from Satan for “a time, and times, and half a time.” Daniel Dan. 7:25 uses this identical time designation for the length of time that the Antichrist will persecute the saints of the 70th week. . . . Revelation Rev. 13:5-7+, when referring to this same persecution of 70th-week saints by the Antichrist, declares that it will last for 42 months, which equal three and one-half years. . . . The Jews will be persecuted and will hide in a wilderness area for three and one-half years, exactly one-half of the seven-year 70th week. . . . the Great Tribulation will be finished when God has completely shattered the obstinate rebellion of the nation of Israel against Him [Dan. Dan. 9:24; Dan. 12:7]. In other words, the Great Tribulation will end when Israel’s rebellion against God’s rule ends.9
Scofield summarizes the character of this unique period:The elements of the tribulation are: (1) The cruel reign of the “beast out of the sea” (Rev. Rev. 13:1+), who, at the beginning of the three and a half years, will break his covenant with the Jews (by virtue of which they will have re-established the temple worship, Dan. Dan. 9:27), and show himself in the temple, demanding that he be worshipped as God (Mtt. Mat. 24:15; 2Th. 2Th. 2:4). (2) The active interposition of Satan “having great wrath” (Rev. Rev. 12:12+), who gives his power to the Beast (Rev. Rev. 13:4+, Rev. 13:5+). (3) The unprecedented activity of demons (Rev. Rev. 9:2+, Rev. 9:11+); and (4) the terrible “bowl” judgments of Rev. Rev. 16:1+.10
Although the book of Revelation indicates that all those living on the earth immediately prior to the return of Jesus will be involved in troublesome times, this is especially true for the Jews.

Powerful Message 🌍 2019 committing adultery is a serious sin💔But what do Jesus have to say about it?
I get help from Believers all over the world🌍 We are Brothers and Sisters in Christ!Throwing StonesLet any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone.John 8:7
Jesus was teaching in the temple courts when He made that statement. A group of teachers of the law and Pharisees had just dragged a woman caught in adultery before Him and challenged, “In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” (v. 5). Because they considered Jesus a threat to their authority, the question was “a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him” (v. 6)—and getting rid of Him.Yet when Jesus replied, “Let any one of you who is without sin . . .” not one of the woman’s accusers could bring themselves to pick up a stone. One by one, they walked away.Before we critically judge another’s behavior while looking lightly at our own sin, let’s remember that all of us “fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Instead of condemnation, our Savior showed this woman—and you and me—grace and hope (John 3:16; 8:10-11). How can we not do the same for others?By Alyson KiedaREFLECT & PRAYDear Lord, thank You for loving us! Help us to look with compassion on others and to be gracious in all we say and do.
How can you put the lesson of John 8 into action in how you treat others? How can you use your own experience to help others facing similar challenges?
SCRIPTURE INSIGHTAlthough the earliest Greek manuscripts don’t include John 8:1-11, scholars believe this was an authentic event from Jesus’s life—a part of oral tradition that was added to John’s gospel later. The Mosaic Law mandates both adulterer and adulteress must be put to death by stoning (Leviticus 20:10; Deuteronomy 22:22-24). If Jesus let the adulterous woman go unpunished, the Pharisees would accuse and condemn Him for contradicting and rejecting God’s laws (John 8:6). If Jesus confirmed the death penalty, He would be discredited for His lack of compassion and could also be charged for breaking Roman laws for “only the Romans are permitted to execute someone” (John 18:31 nlt).

My Words 2019I'm not into the Jerry Springer or the Maury Show but it's a reality of adultery!There are many movies and TV shows about adultery! cheaters show! Why people cheat! We will never no! I just say GOD says repent of it! Stop living like that! Love your wife ! Love your husband!Have great sexual relations💑 only with each other! Not married don't have sexual relations with that person👍 AmenOnly way to stop the spread of diseases HIV AIDS and STDs😪💧💔
The Good News“It is no longer true that the divorce rate is rising, or that half of all marriages end in divorce. It has not been for some time.”
My WordsStop judging people judge your own self! Or should I say pick up a stone and stone the person if you have no sin you? Amen
What is the Gospel of Jesus Christ?The word gospel means "good news" so the gospel of Christ is the good news of his coming to provide forgiveness of sins for all who will believe Romans 10:9
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the best news anyone will ever hear and what a person does with this news will determine where he or she spends eternity God is calling you to choose life

Everyone on Earth looks at the Moon!About Our Moon 🌒🌓🌔🌕🌗2019
A moon is a natural satellite of a planetary body. It revolves around that body — a planet or asteroid. Our Moon is the only natural satellite of Earth.
Why does our Moon shine?“shines” because it reflects the Sun's light. At times, our Moon reflects so much light that it makes viewing parts of the night sky challenging!
Why does our Moon's shape change?
Moon PhasesOur Moon's shape doesn't really change — it only appears that way! The “amount” of Moon that we see as we look from Earth changes in a cycle that repeats about once a month (29.5 days). The relative positions of our Sun, Earth, and Moon, cause these changes.As our Moon orbits around Earth, the side facing the Sun is always illuminated, just like Earth's daylight side is illuminated by the Sun.
What we see from Earth, however, is a different story. Starting with the dark new Moon, we see the light part of the Moon “grow” from a sliver to a half to a full Moon — and then the illuminated part decreases, becoming thinner until there is no visible Moon in the sky and we are at the new Moon part of the cycle again.
We have a “new Moon” when our Moon's orbit around Earth moves it between Earth and the Sun. From Earth, the Moon's surface looks dark because the illuminated side is facing away from Earth. As our Moon continues its orbit counterclockwise around Earth (viewed from above the north pole), more and more of the illuminated part of the Moon becomes visible to us, until it reaches the “full Moon” stage. A full Moon occurs when the Moon has moved in its orbit so that Earth is “between” the Moon and the Sun.
What causes a lunar eclipse?Pictures of the Moon's phases often make it look like there should be a lunar eclipse during each full Moon and a solar eclipse during each new Moon. However, two things have to happen for a full lunar eclipse. First, the Moon has to be full, so there is only an opportunity for a lunar eclipse about once each month. Second, the Moon has to pass through Earth's shadow. The Moon's orbit around Earth is tilted a little, or “off kilter” by about 5 degrees to the Earth's orbit around the Sun. This means that most of the time the Moon is slightly above or below Earth's plane of orbit — and out of the shadow cast by Earth where it blocks the Sun's light. No eclipse occurs during these full Moons. But two to four times each year, a full Moon occurs when the Moon's orbit intersects Earth's plane of orbit, placing the Moon in Earth's shadow — and a lunar eclipse occurs!
How long does it take our Moon to go around Earth?It takes 27 days, 7 hours, and 43 minutes for our Moon to complete one full orbit around Earth. This is called the sidereal month, and is measured by our Moon's position relative to distant “fixed” stars. However, it takes our Moon about 29.5 days to complete one cycle of phases (from new Moon to new Moon). This is called the synodic month. The difference between the sidereal and synodic months occurs because as our Moon moves around Earth, the Earth also moves around our Sun. Our Moon must travel a little farther in its path to make up for the added distance and complete the phase cycle.
My wordsThe Word of GOD about the Reality of the Sun; Moon; Earth; Stars
Signs in the Sun, Moon and StarsMany people today believe that these celestial signs are only starting to be fulfilled in our day, with such events like solar flares that occur in the sun and the 'blood moon(s)'. But the truth is, the Bible verses in Matthew and Luke where Jesus talks about celestial signs of the stars, sun and moon
Matthew 24:29 …'Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.'
My wordsGOD Jesus his already looked past the coming 7 year Ezekiel chapter 38 39 Battle of Gog and Magog war in the Middle East and Daniel 9:27 a seven year tribulation period !Some People say it's already over an written; nothing you can do about it! your decision has been made! Yes that's true in a way! But you as a individual know you need to make personal changes daily to feel better about your life on Earth
Luke 21:25-26 …'And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and looking after those things which are coming on the earth; for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.'
Revelation 6:12-13 …'And I beheld when He had opened the sixth seal, and lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood. And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.'
Joel 2:31 …'The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come.'
My WordsWhy should i care about spreading the gospel if it's already over and God has already made your decision! Because he gave me a commandment!
Mark 16:15-16 (KJV)15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

About this bookhttp://www.easyenglish.bibleThe events in the first chapter of this book happened about 605 years before Christ was born. God had told the *Jews that they must obey him. God gave his people a long time to say sorry to him and to obey him. But they did more and more evil things and they gave honour to false gods. So God used a foreign king, Nebuchadnezzar, to punish the *Jews. Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon. Nebuchadnezzar took them away from the country that God had given them. Nebuchadnezzar did not give honour to the real God. He gave honour to false gods. But God still used him to punish the *Jews. In Jeremiah 25:9, 12, God said that Nebuchadnezzar was his servant. But Nebuchadnezzar did not know that. God also said that he would punish the people in Babylon 70 years later. This was because they were wicked too (see Daniel chapter 5). God is in control. He can even use people who do not know him.The Book of Daniel is in two parts. In the first 6 chapters, we read about Daniel and his friends. They were loyal to God. In the other 6 chapters, we read about Daniel’s dreams. God sent him messages in dreams. God told Daniel what would happen in the future.
The people who did go to Jerusalem tried to build God’s holy house again. It was hard work. The other people in the country tried to stop them. Many years later, another king (Artaxerxes) allowed Nehemiah to go to build the walls of Jerusalem again (Nehemiah 2:4-6). This too was hard work. Again, the other people in the country tried to stop them.This is probably the 7 times 7 years.Then there is a period of 62 times 7 years. After this, Jesus came into the world. He taught and he cured people for about three and a half years. But then the people put him to Death AD 33. He was the man whom God had appointed. Later the *Romans came. They destroyed Jerusalem and God’s holy place.When Jesus was born, some people were waiting for him.
My WordsWe have the choice…..so which do you choose today?
SIGNS OF THE END🙏🌎 updateEnd Times as the Days of Noah and Lot wereIn Matthew 24 and Luke 17, Jesus gave us a clear warning and indication of what this world would be like near the time of His second coming. Looking forward to the time just before His return, Christ saw the scene of this world and it was a mirror of what it was like back in both Noah's and Lot's day.
Matthew 24:37-39 …'But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For 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 the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.'
Luke 17:28-30 …'Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day of the son of man is revealed.'
So what we need to find out now is what was it like back in the days of Noah and Lot.
IN NOAH's DAY – Genesis 6:5,11,12 …'And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.'
IN LOT's DAY – Jude 1:7 .read it
As we can see, the world in Noah's day was full of wickedness with the thoughts of men continually evil. The earth was corrupt and FILLED with violence. Love had surely 'waxed cold' in Noah's day. Also, we can see from Jude that in Lot's day, sexual immorality LGBT, or GLBT, is an initialism that stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. In use since the 1990s, the term is an adaptation of the initialism LGB, which was used to replace the term gay in reference to the LGBT community beginning in the mid-to-late 1980s.
had taken control of the people of Sodom. And Jesus tells us that these things would be COMBINED and all happening at once during the last days before His return. So does the day we live in fit with this description? YES!Not only is this world today full of violence and sexual immorality, including homos. These evils have now been turned into ENTERTAINMENT!! This world is now ENTERTAINED by the very things that God DESTROYED the old world and Sodom for in Noah's and Lot's day!
Let's take LBGT COMMUNITY as an example, or 'going after strange flesh' like they did in Sodom. Since 2001, 14 countries have fully legalized LBGT marriage – And the list is growing all the time. 😡👎
2 Peter 2:4-6 …
Do you see what the LORD is telling us here? He made an example of the wicked people in Noah's day who were filled with evil and showed violence to one another by destroying them with the flood. And He made an example of the sexually immoral people in Lot's day who practiced LBGT by destroying them with fire. It is a warning to us that we should not follow in their footsteps by practicing the same sins. Otherwise, we will be destroyed too when Jesus returns.
Oh that the scenes of iniquity practiced in these last days would make a deep impression on the minds of God's professed people. God's Spirit is now being withdrawn from this world and the angel of mercy is about to depart! Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision; for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision! (Joel 3:14)
Just think about this sobering fact for a minute. There are many commentators that say the population back in Noah's day was in the millions. And yet only 8 people were saved! – Noah and his family. That's it! Just think about that, only 8 people truly trusted in God and followed His will 👍 Now we have 7.3 billion people how many you think are saved! It's nowhere near a billion👎 that's sad and scary please don't let that happen to you ! More END times Prophecy for youThe very soon Rise of satan son "the Beast" 666 you don't want to be living on earth 🌏 during his time 🕙 and he will getWorld-wide Attention – "The whole earth marveled as they followed the beast" (13:3): This event will no doubt make headlines around the world. Internet videos of the event will go viral. Television reports of the event will be shown around the clock.Worshipped – "They worshiped the dragon" (13:4): During Christ’s three-year ministry, Satan tried to persuade Him to fall down and worship him (Matthew 4:9). Before that, Lucifer (Satan’s original name) sought to put himself in the place of God (see Isaiah 14:12-17; Ezekiel 28:11-19). Satan will finally have what he has yearned for—worship. They worshiped the beast…”Who is like the beast?” (13:4): This contrasts with believers, who say to God, “Who is like you, O Lord?” (Exodus 15:11Will Blasphemy – "and blasphemous names on its heads" (13:1): These point to the antichrist’s character—he will have a mouth full of blasphemy (Revelation 13:5-6) and will exalt himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped (2 Satan – "To it the dragon gave his power and his throne and great authority" (13:2): The ultimate source of the antichrist’s power is Satan. 💧😢 come to The Cross!Our only true hope is the Cross❤We all need a Relationship with the the GOD of Abraham Isaac and Jacob and his name is JESUS CHRIST
There is a spiritual war being fought over the hearts and souls of mankind👍 please understand I have been living on this Earth long enough to say it all about that American Dream👍 but due to satan😡👎 sin and death😡👎 and the wickedness of mankind👍/ Mental illness Health issues 😢💧 we need a savior 🌍
this life is temporarily R.I.P. 😡👎 but we have some hope 📖 its all in the History of the World of GOD and he's coming back Jesus Christ his feet will touch the Mount of Olives east of Jerusalem are you ready
"Is Zechariah 14:4 a prophecy about the second coming of Christ?"
Answer: Zechariah 14:4 predicts, “On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the Mount moving north and half moving south.” “That day” is a reference to the Day of the Lord, and the One who stands on the mountain is the Lord Himself. So, yes, this passage predicts the second coming of Christ.
Revelation 13 :15-18 New International Version (NIV)
We must individually receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord: then we can know and experience God's love and plan for our lives we must receive ChristJohn 3:16/17For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world: but that the world through him might be saved.Romans 10:9 King James Version (KJV)
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.My wordsThen get baptized in the name of the father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit .After you receive the Holy Spirit your eyes will be open you can see the spiritual Realm of the dark Forces the Holy Bible scriptures will open up to you.

Powerful message 🌍 2019Why did Jesus say that blessed are the barren women? (Luke 23:28-31)
I would like to understand what it says in Luke 23:28-31. I can not understand why Jesus said it is blessed (happier) to be barren? I can not understand, or maybe I have not taken something into account. And I can not understand verses 30 and 31, as well. Please, help me to understand. Thank you!
Before I will give the explanation, let’s see what the passage says …
The Gospel of Luke 23:28-31But Jesus turning to them said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, stop weeping for Me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. For behold, the days are coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed. “Then they will begin TO SAY TO THE MOUNTAINS, ‘FALL ON US,’ AND TO THE HILLS, ‘COVER US.’ For if they do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?” (Luke 23:28-31)(NASB)
The Lord Jesus was referring here to the destruction of Jerusalem, that was very close, after His Death in AD33 come about 38/40 year's later in AD70 the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem an the dispersed of the Jewish people for almost 2,000 years! 1948 they became a nation again! They just celebrated their 71st anniversary May 14th 2019 wake up! They want to see a 3rd temple being built in Jerusalem Israel 2019/2029.

4 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. 3 Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.”4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ”5 Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, 6 and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written:‘He shall give His angels charge over you,’and,‘In their hands they shall bear you up,Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’ ”7 Jesus said to him, “It is written again, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’ ”8 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”10 Then Jesus said to him,“Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ ”11 Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him

Question: "What does Revelation chapter 12 mean?"
Answer: In Revelation chapter 12, John sees a vision of a woman "clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars" (Revelation 12:1). Note the similarity between this description and the description that Joseph gave of his father Jacob (Israel) and his mother and their children (Genesis 37:9-11). The twelve stars refer to the twelve tribes of Israel. So the woman in Revelation 12 is Israel.
Additional evidence for this interpretation is that Revelation 12:2-5 speaks of the woman being with child and giving birth. While it is true that Mary gave birth to Jesus, it is also true that Jesus, the son of David from the tribe of Judah, came from Israel. In a sense, Israel gave birth—or brought forth—Christ Jesus. Verse 5 says that the woman’s child was "a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron; and her child was caught up to God and to His throne." Clearly, this is describing Jesus. Jesus ascended to heaven (Acts 1:9-11) and will one day establish His kingdom on earth (Revelation 20:4-6), and He will rule it with perfect judgment (the “rod of iron”; see Psalm 2:7-9).
The woman’s flight into the wilderness for 1,260 days refers to the future time called the Great Tribulation. Twelve hundred, sixty days is 42 months (of 30 days each), which is the same as 3 1/2 years. Halfway through the Tribulation period, the Beast (the Antichrist) will set an image of himself up in the temple that will be built in Jerusalem. This is the abomination that Jesus spoke of in Matthew 24:15 and Mark 13:14. When the Beast does this, he breaks the peace pact he had made with Israel, and the nation has to flee for safety—possibly to Petra (also see Matthew 24; Daniel 9:27). This escape of the Jews is pictured as the woman fleeing into the wilderness.
Revelation 12:12-17 speaks of how the devil will make war against Israel, trying to destroy her (Satan knows his time is short, relatively speaking—see Revelation 20:1-3, 10). It also reveals that God will protect Israel in the wilderness. Revelation 12:14 says Israel will be protected from the devil for "a time, times, and half a time (“a time” = 1 year; “times” = 2 years; “half a time” = one-half year; in other words, 3 1/2 years).

THEY ARE OUT THERE (Ex. Ch. 7 Vrs. 10 – 13)! This message is not to alarm but to make aware. That oh yes, even in this 21st Century. There are many who practice witchcraft, sorcery and/or magic. They use it to gain an advantage in this world where they can use it. Some have even put themselves in direct covenant with our adversary, their master (Satan), that he and his power may give them the prominence they seek in this realm (Matt. Ch. 4 Vrs 9). Beloved I want to make it clear. There is no competition between God Almighty and Satan. By this passage alone, and with a great many others in this Bible. That God Almighty's power without reservation dwarfs our adversaries. Funny how when God was showing Moses to put down the staff and it became a serpent. That God Almighty told Moses to pick it up again by its tail that it would become a staff again (Ex. Ch. 4 Vrs. 1 – 4). Illustrating God having Satan under his control. This is to let the child of God know. That whatever the child of God does not pray on and/or over is probably gained by Satan and his hoard. Due to the child of God being desensitized of the importance of praying and having a relationship with God Almighty. So beloved, think not that everything is just neutral site for it probably isn't. For in this manner that God Almighty works through people (Matt. Ch. 18 Vrs.18). Our adversary understands this same concept and works through those who follow after him. Yet the Bible does tell me "Greater is He (The Holy Ghost) that is in me; than he (Satan) who is in this world (1 John Ch.4 Vrs. 4)". Beloved you now have a responsibility not just to pray for yourself. But to pray also for your family, friends, situations, etc. For there was a time you didn't pray for yourself. But God Almighty was answering someone else's prayer on your behalf. And oh yes, He answered! How do I know? If you're reading this! That's how I know! You're still here! Thank you Jesus! Be blessed 😃! Pastor Fleming cook

JVMI Messianic Jewish Ministries
Those who believe Scripture contains a literal fulfillment of the biblical covenants for the Jewish people and the Land of Israel recognize rebuilding of The 3rd Temple is part of this promised future. In Jeremiah’s presentation of the New Covenant for Israel, we read:
Behold, days are coming,’ declares the LORD, ‘when I will fulfill the good word which I have spoken concerning the house of Israel and the house of Judah. In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch of David to spring forth; and He shall execute justice and righteousness on the earth. In those days Judah shall be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell in safety; and this is the name by which she shall be called: the LORD is our righteousness.’ For thus says the LORD, ‘David shall never lack a man to sit on the throne of the house of Israel; and the Levitical priests shall never lack a man before Me to offer burnt offerings, to burn grain offerings, and to prepare sacrifices continually.
– Jeremiah 33:14–18, NASBThis passage speaks about the Messianic Age when all Israel will be saved and restored to the Land of Israel. At that time, a righteous descendant of David, the Messiah, will sit on the throne in Jerusalem, and the Temple will again stand complete with its Levitical priesthood. If this is to be a future reality, is there any sign of preparation for The 4th Temple in Israel today? No not yet! But it's coming in the Time of Christ on the Earth 🌍 Rev 20:4
Are we any closer to the rebuilding of the 3rd Temple today? The world is radically opposed to Israel’s claims in Jerusalem, much less their contested ownership of the Temple Mount. On a practical level, Jews are banned by Israeli law from praying at the site, and those who visit are daily accosted by Muslims, such as the Women in Black, who maintain a constant vigil on Jewish presence at the site. In addition, the Islamic authorities officially deny that a Temple ever existed at the site. Nevertheless, recent developments have contributed to the Temple Movement’s goals and the realization of the rebuilding of the Temple in our lifetime.
Answering the charge of denial a Jewish Temple ever existed on the site, archaeologists discovered in decades-old research that the site of the Al-Aqsa mosque, which Muslims believe was built by Abraham, was once a place for Jewish ritual preparation for entering the Temple. The evidence for this came from a report filed by British archaeologist Robert Hamilton who had documented excavations of the mosque’s foundations after it was destroyed in an earthquake in 1927. He discovered beneath the floor of the mosque the remains of a Jewish miqveh (ritual pool used for purification). It dated to the time of the Second Temple when Jews immersed at this site before entering the Temple precincts. These findings, hidden deep in the British Mandatory archives department because they embarrassed Muslim officials, now provide evidence that the ancient Temple stood on the modern Temple Mount and was a place of Jewish presence.
Revelation 13:15-18 NIV15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be martyred. 16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.
18 This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.

The MillenniumCan you imagine a world with no fear? No disease? No pain? No worry? That is what it will be like during the Millennial Kingdom. For a thousand years, there will be a time of peace—we will be living in a perfect world with Christ as our ruler. The Millennium is something we can look forward to when our lives here on earth are difficult and our world seems to be filled with chaos, immorality, and despair. As we go through hard times we must remember that there is a future for us in Christ. So here is a brief look at what the Millennial Kingdom will look like.
What Is the Millennium?
￼"The Millennium is a thousand-year reign of peace, and the Lord Jesus Christ will be King."The word mille means “a thousand” so the millennium is “a thousand years.” In the book of Revelation, that is actually mentioned four or five times in one chapter.
The Millennium is a thousand-year reign of peace, and the Lord Jesus Christ will be King. Surprising to a lot of folks, David will be His vice president, so to speak, and will sit on the throne with Him, and they will rule the world in righteousness and godliness. There will still be sin in the Millennium, but it will be short-lived. It will be dealt with immediately.
When you read about the Millennium you discover how lifetimes will be extended, and the lion will lay down with the lamb, and all of the hostilities that have been a part of our world will be gone. The Millennium is and an incredible thing. Dwight Pentecost, one of my teachers, taught me there is more in the Bible on the Millennium than any other period in all of Scripture. And it’s all tucked away in the Old Testament prophets where you wouldn’t necessarily look for it, but then when you start to think about it, every time you look through Scripture there is something in the Bible about that period of time.
Will Believers Today Be on Earth for the Millennium?
￼"The Bible says, 'And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years' (Revelation 20:4)."[During the Millennial Kingdom,] the Bible says that you and I and all Christians are going to be a part of the government. All of us who are believers, if we are living during this period of time, are taken up into heaven in the Rapture. We are in heaven for about seven years while the Tribulation is happening down on earth. Up in heaven, the Marriage Supper of the Lamb and Judgment Seat of Christ for believers—all of that is taking place.
But when Christ comes back at the Battle of Armageddon, and He defeats the armies of the world that have come against Him, the Bible says we come with Him. When we come with Him, when the battle is over, we stay on earth with Him and we rule and reign with Him throughout the whole world. The Bible says, “And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years” (Revelation 20:4).
Red Ripz Shit
We all have free will🌍Say Yes or Noquestion: "Why does God allow deception?"
Answer: God’s desire is that all people repent and be saved (2 Peter 3:9). At the same time, Satan, the “father of lies” (John 8:44), deceives the very people who need to accept the truth. “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ” (2 Corinthians 4:4). Surely, God could stop Satan’s lies and give people a fighting chance.
The Bible presents a consistent picture of how sin and deception are related. What’s revealed is that the way we tend to think of deceit is, well, a bit deceived. Spiritually speaking, deception is deeper than merely being tricked or lied to. In order to be saved, one does not need any particular level of intelligence, philosophical ability, or wisdom (Galatians 3:28; 1 Corinthians 1:20, 26). In fact, mankind has an unfortunate habit of using increased knowledge to develop more sophisticated ways to sin.
Key to understanding spiritual deception is the fact that we often choose what we want to believe rather than what we should believe, even in the face of the evidence (Luke 16:31). “Even after Jesus had done all these miraculous signs in their presence, they still would not believe in him” (John 12:37). Notice that they would not believe Jesus, despite the miracles. Their unbelief was willful.
Eve is the earliest, clearest example of how spiritual deception really works. When the serpent asks her, “Did God really say…?” Eve responds by quoting what God had said (Genesis 3:1-3). She knows what to do and what not to do. The serpent then tempts her with what she can gain by eating from the tree (Genesis 3:4-5), and she notices other attractive aspects of the fruit (Genesis 3:6). Eve was lied to, and the serpent was cunning (2 Corinthians 11:3), but she ultimately chose to disobey God, even though she could quote the commandment.
When confronted with her sin, Eve said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate” (Genesis 3:13b). The original Hebrew word for “deceived” implies trickery and craftiness; it is sometimes translated “seduced.” Seduction is an appropriate way to think of the deception of Eve—she knew full well what God had said, but she chose to disobey because she wanted something that the serpent cleverly offered.
The same dynamic is at work today. People who reject God do so because, in some way, they don't really want to obey Him. We are tempted by our “own evil desire” first (James 1:14). That’s not to say every unbeliever is blatantly and spitefully turning from what is known to be true. But the unbeliever’s desire for self-satisfaction makes Satan’s deception all the more potent.
God has sent the Savior (John 3:16/17), He fills the world with signs of Himself (Romans 1:20), He makes Himself available to those who seek Him (Deuteronomy 4:29), and He secures anyone who comes to Him (John 6:37). When men reject what is “clearly seen” of God (Romans 1:20), it leads to a downward spiral of “foolish hearts” made dark (verse 21), idolatry (verse 22), and sexual impurity (verse 24). Finally, mankind “exchanged the truth of God for a lie” (verse 25). In other words, the spiritual deception of mankind is the direct result of rejecting truth once held. The unbeliever has made an exchange—the truth for a lie—and the devil is happy to facilitate the swap by presenting the sinner with a wide array of lies from which to choose.
Anyone who resists God risks falling into spiritual deception (2 Thessalonians 2:8-10). Nature abhors a vacuum, and the void created by the eviction of truth will soon be filled by something less than true. Give up the truth, and you’ll believe just about anything.
Eve didn’t sin because she was hopelessly outmatched by a demonic force, making her do wrong when she thought she was doing right. Yes, she was lied to, but she chose to listen to the lie. That was followed by her longing look at what was forbidden and, finally, her taking the fruit in hopes of a better life.
All human sin is based in human choice (1 Corinthians 10:13). When we reject the truth, we make ourselves vulnerable to the lie. Repeated rejection of spiritual truth brings spiritual deception as a divine consequence.
God allows spiritual deception as a form of punishment for willful sin, and in order to cultivate an awareness in our lives of how badly we need the One who is Himself Truth, our Lord Jesus Christ (John 14:6).

Powerful message to the world 🌍People of the world you were born a Farmer! Born independent! Take care of your own self! The enemy satan is deceiving you of who you really are on Earth 🌍 and purpose 💧😢💔
◄ Genesis 2:15 ►NIVThe LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.
(Ezra 1:1) Why were the Jews exiled?The Jews had disobeyed God’s law of obeying the Sabbath. They had been in the Promised Land for roughly 800 years, and for 490 years, they disobeyed his Sabbath rest. The Sabbath rest was not only every seventh day; it was also every seventh year. The Jews were allowed to work the land for six years, but on the seventh year they had to let the land get a rest. God commanded this because the land needs to recuperate, gaining back its minerals. Also, this was an act of trust and obedience to God. The Jews were trusting God’s provision by not farming for an entire year. Judgment was promised if they disobeyed God’s Sabbath rest:
(Lev. 25:2-4; 26:33-35) Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘When you come into the land which I shall give you, then the land shall have a sabbath to the LORD. 3‘Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard and gather in its crop, 4but during the seventh year the land shall have a sabbath rest, a sabbath to the LORD; you shall not sow your field nor prune your vineyard… 33‘You, however, I will scatter among the nations and will draw out a sword after you, as your land becomes desolate and your cities become waste. 34‘Then the land will enjoy its sabbaths all the days of the desolation, while you are in your enemies’ land; then the land will rest and enjoy its sabbaths. 35‘All the days of its desolation it will observe the rest which it did not observe on your sabbaths, while you were living on it.
(2 Chron. 36:21) To fulfill the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed its sabbaths All the days of its desolation it kept sabbath until seventy years were complete.
God promised the Jews that he would kick them out of the land, if they disobeyed him on this:
(Jer. 25:11-12; 29:10-14) This whole land will be a desolation and a horror, and these nations will serve the king of Babylon seventy years. 12‘Then it will be when seventy years are completed I will punish the king of Babylon and that nation,’ declares the LORD, ‘for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans; and I will make it an everlasting desolation… “For thus says the LORD, ‘When seventy years have been completed for Babylon, I will visit you and fulfill My good word to you, to bring you back to this place. 11‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. 12‘Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13‘You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. 14‘I will be found by you,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.’
In the book of Jeremiah, God told the people that he would exile them from the land for 70 years, because this was the amount of time that the Sabbath rest had been disobeyed (490 years total). Here in Ezra, we see that this 70 year period had elapsed, as Daniel had also anticipated (Dan. 9:1-2). Ezra records that God moved King Cyrus to let the people back into the land. This was truly a supernatural event. Cyrus even returned the gold and silver that Nebuchadnezzar had sacked from the Temple in 600 B.C. (Dan. 1).
◄ Exodus 34:21 ►NIV"Six days you shall labor, but on the seventh day you shall rest; even during the plowing season and harvest you must rest.
Exodus 23:12 NIV12 “Six days do your work, but on the seventh day do not work, so that your ox and your donkey may rest, and so that the slave born in your household and the foreigner living among you may be refreshed.
