This book presents a chronology of end-time events from a Pre-Wrath Rapture perspective. It starts with the Two Revelation Witnesses of Revelation 11, then during their ministry comes the Apostasy (the falling away of professing Christians who will be at war with the teachings of the Two Revelation Witnesses), then the anti-Christ comes on the scene and during his ministry comes the Rapture of the Church, very shortly after the Rapture of the Church the Day of the Lord starts and the culminating event of all the aforementioned will be the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. The book also tells the People of The Way as to what day of the week they are to observe the Sabbath day rest,
What I like most about the Bible is the way God thinks! When you have the mind of Christ (1 Cor. 2:14ff) you think like God thinks and you understand what foolishness comes out of the mouths of men!
We know nothing about it! There were only sixty-six canonical books in the Bible before 1684 and there were still sixty-six canonical books after 1684.
It would be the New World that we are looking forward too. That world is the Kingdom of God that is coming with the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Various trials (James 1:2ff) are necessary for the Christian to come to spiritual maturity. Many professing Christians falsely believe that being born again (saved) is the goal of Christianity, but that is a very selfish and self-serving goal. To be born again is only the starting point (like a newborn baby starts out in life), whereas spiritual maturity is the goal – Christlikeness. Christians are called to make disciples (Matt. 28:19ff) and not make unsaved babies. This is nothing new because the writer of Hebrews mentions them. (Heb 5:12ff) “For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food. 13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil. To be a victor (overcomer) you must seek and possess spiritual maturity. In 1 John 2:12ff you wanted to be at least a spiritually mature young man, who is strong in the faith, and as such has the power over the devil.
The bottom line is that the Bible is not their “Final Authority.” Their authorities are the Bible, Roman Catholic Church Traditions, and their Church Magisterium. So, you could take the Bible away and their church still stands on the two pillars of Traditions and their Church Magisterium.
Jesus said when you add another authority to the Bible you nullify even the true teachings of the Bible. Thus, truth plus error is error. (Mark 7:7-9).
What is being said is that the Roman Catholic (System which they call a Church) fits the definition of a cult. All cults add and/or take away from the Word of God and the warning to those various cults can be found in Revelation 22:18ff.
The Bride of Christ is every truly born again Christian whether male or female. Jesus Christ is the groom; and we are His bride (Rev. 19:7-9).
“Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns. 7 “Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.” 8 And it was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. 9 And he said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.'”
Simply put, it’s better to be alive and have hope than to be dead and be without home. Dogs in the Bible are pictured as the lowest of creatures (sometimes even gentiles were called dogs by the Jews because of their sinful ways (Matthew 15:26,27) whereas lions are pictured as the majestic king of the beasts. So, what the writer of Ecclesiastes is saying, “It is better to be a live wicked dog who still has hope than it is to be a dead lion who has no hope.
