Without being provocative isn't that the point of 2nd peter?? though - they will say all things continue the same. But one day with the lord is as one thousand with the lord and vica-versa. You seem to be denying the prophecy of daniel though? that knowledge shall increase in the latter times. You see the difference between them days you speak of - and of us - is? the modern age of technology - which shall incidently pave and make the way for? And no man might buy or sell, lest he have the mark or the name of the beast in his hand or in his forehead. ( how can this technology happen unless we enter into a sophisticated digital age? or how can the whole world "SEE" the two witnesses slain and lie dead in the streets for 3 and a half days - without the advent and invention of television?? To tell you the truth i was waiting for someone to make these remarks! Some just don't seem to get it (or) see it! God gave them and waited 100 years before the flood finally came! Dont you think in that interim period - that they all the more doubted of Noah's word, and the integrity of its - coming to pass?? Im not putting you down (okay) as you made your point well! ... but your words are exactly what peter warned off ...they will scoff ...saying where is the promise of his coming and this so-called - end of the world stuff and all the great judgments!! God is not slack concerning his promise! he is simply long, long, long, long suffering - to us-ward ...not willing that any should perish.
He is giving mankind a window and an opportunity to be part of his everlasting kingdom. And that window like the window in Noahs ark will only be open for a season though ...and then the door will shut and slam tight...forever!!!

Quote:No one is happy to be proven wrong. Becoming humble is a humbling experience. If you have truly been in His presence, all that you have ever learnt becomes dung. And what He feeds you, as strange as it may be, becomes truth. The walk becomes lonelier because very few walk with your understanding and no one is willing to humble themselves to learn.
I would be pleasantly surprised and happy if you prove me wrong!
Quote:Revelation 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the [b]everlasting gospel[/b] to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people.
And that window like the window in Noah's Ark will only be open for a season though ...and then the door will shut and slam tight...forever!!!
If the Gospel here is called "Everlasting", what would it do for us who are already perfect in heaven?
Quote:It all depends on how you view "knowledge". Proverbs 2:6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
You seem to be denying the prophecy of Daniel though? that knowledge shall increase in the latter times
Isaiah 11:9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
There is your increase. It was the increase of the knowledge of the LORD when the Everlasting Gospel was first preached and continues to be so to this day and will continue forever.
You'll reject this, and Waltern will be on here to act in your defence.
God Bless and keep seeking His face. 8-)

| Re: |
Son Of Thunder what are you trying to tell us because reading your posts it looks like rambling.
You say a write a lot without saying anything of great value.
The post is titled "A GREAT STORM IS ON THE WAY" but then there is no real substance in your posts.
So what excactly are you saying?

| Re: justice and glory|
There seems to be God's justice and even favor among his people, even in the midst of tribulation. Isn't that a primary message in the book of Revelation?
No matter what Satan does, or how much he rages, there is a remnant that is protected, and even blessed....overcomers. No matter how big the storm, how intense; the promises of the Lord are paramount; ascendant and sure. He cannot lie, and in the End, He wins, and so does His people, for Eternity.
Ultimately, it is the lord who prophesied about the coming storm. I guess our question is; When? Will it be in our lifetime's?
I think yes, as do many. Below is a post on another website that outlines what I think, about this immanent tribulation.
Let us be careful not to lose focus, and turn or inquisitions upon each other. It's God's word, not ours. We don't need to defend it, or attack it, if He spoke it; though we may qualify our ideas as iron sharpens iron. This produces enlargement, not compression.

My calling is wrapped up in the last days. This what Spirit of God said to me "For I am raising you up for the last days" That's when what God has called me to do will happen and it's not yet time.
I will also mention this what happened I was out with my friend's in the hills of Scotland when coming back I knew I had to go to church. As I went in and sat and listened it wasn't the preacher I heard but God's voice so much that I looked around the congregation and asked myself do these people know that God is talking to me it was that clear. That was back in 1989 and it was the start of my Christian life and my walk with God.
One of the things that God has warned me about an attack of the enemey is this. "In the days ahead the Devil will seek to tell you that that you are to far behind and will seek to push you and get you out of my timings and out of my protection but know this night tht you are right on time with me" "So don't allow yourself to be pushed but stay in my timings and in my protection"
Know all this words that come out saying things like "There's a storm coming" along with many other feelings of dread that have been posted on this site and all other words that appear on the internet end up putting fear in the hearts of God people and then they act out of fear instead of faith. This in my book is wrong we should be building each other up installing faith so we can stand.
I beleive that the Devil is not only seeking to push me but he is seeking to push God's people to get them into thinking that there is not enough time and to seek to get us to [b]go it alone with out God[/b] out of his timings and his protection.
My word of advice is God's in charge, remember what Isaiah says Isa 25:4 For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.
[b]God will protect us he is our refuge in the storm. What we need to concern ourselves with is living Holy pure lives having a right standing with God so we can stand when all else falls Pro 10:25 we are the light to this world Matt 5:14, Gods Glory shall be seen upon us it does matter how dark or how great the storm Isa 60:2 this will be the church's finest hour"[/b]

| Re: The latter days....|
It seems that everyone knows that things aren't the same as the old days. I believe that 9-11 was a sign post for the beginning of the latter days. Nothing seems the same, since that day. I also believe that our struggle in the end, will be with Islam, and the anti-christ will rise out of there. Mohamed ascended to Heaven on his very special flying white steed...the white horse.
The white horse, of the four horseman of Apocalypse, is one and the same. I see this religion as that...."conquering and to conquer: Islam means "submission", with no compromise...."your worship or your head" is their creed, and murder is a valid tool to attain this goal....men, women, and babies...it does not matter; all for Allah.
"Christian" America is at present fighting 2 standing wars with this spirit, and a spirit it is. I believe we have entered the courts of the tribulation, and we are barreling headlong into the thick of it. I don't know when, but maybe not as long as we might think!
It is a storm programmed by god himself, to prove his love in the heart of every man. Who do you love?

| Re: AN AWFUL STORM IS ON IT'S WAY|
I must say this about prophesy, though. It must be judged; and it is very unhealthy if we do not. Is it controlling? Is it self promoting? Most of what the Lord has shown me for the body, is for the sake of preparation [as with this brother.. ].
I am not speaking about anyone in general when I say what I'm about to say [b]since I've never submitted a prophetic word on here or any where else[/b], so here goes.
I agree that the prophesy must be judged but what I'm seeing a problem with (and disagree with), is it being judged by people on the Internet; by people whose walk I do not know.
I read all these people's judgments/perceptions on this thread [b](and on many past threads)[/b] and I say this honestly... in reality, [b]I do not know by what spirit these people are judging from[/b], no one does.
It could be a little of the Holy Spirit mixed with a lot of their own beliefs, perceptions and ideas about God and the Bible. OR it could be a lot of the Holy Spirit mixed with a little of their own beliefs, perceptions and ideas about God and the Bible. The truth is that none of us know unless we walk beside someone daily - which we do not do on the internet. **([b]and of course we all like to believe we fall into this latter category[/b]!)
For some reason on SI, a LOT of people believe that it's their God given right to "straighten" others out as to the correct way of reading Scripture or the correct way of ___________ (just fill in the blank) and in the past I am guilty of this and hope not in the future but who knows?? :) BUT in our arrogance we don't realize it's still from OUR own beliefs, perceptions and ideas about God and the Bible that we respond.
We need to submit prophetic things on here with a grain of salt knowing that everyone who responds is not sent from God.
And knowing that we are on the Internet and that the majority doesn't know our walk with God; I believe we need to check ourselves to see if we be in the faith or not when we feel compelled to respond.
Knowing all this... I realize it's just Lysa' s two cents. ;-) :-P :-D

| Re: submitting to prophecy?|
'I read all these people's judgments/perceptions on this thread (and on many past threads) and I say this honestly... in reality, I do not know by what spirit these people are judging from, no one does."
You could of course say that about about all forms of judgment, couldn't you? Did you know General Booth? He had several prophecies, or do you know David Wilkerson, Carter Conlin, or the many saints passed on and alive who are recorded here on SI? .....that were prophetic? You may be impressed with their reputations, but probably you do not know them, nor walk with them.
If I understand you, possibly you are talking about SUBMITTING yourself to prophesies. This is different. This can be very dangerous. prophesies are to be judged, and discerned. If they help, or have the ring of truth, they are yet not to be obeyed. Often time and the local elders will tell you.

Judgement must begin with God's house, Christians fail to realise that Gods judgement does not begin with the people of the world, but with the people of God. Peter told the Christians of his day, For the time has come for judgement to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? (1 Peter 4:17).
What is wrong who will be judged first in Gods house and what are the things God is angry at read on in 1 Peter 5:1-3
1. (Loveless)Shepherds should lead out of Love not duty
2. (Materialism)For free with no gain
3. (Dictatorship.)Not Lording it over the people
You can also reference Ezekiel 9:6 where we read "you shall start from My sanctuary." So they started with the elders who were before the temple.
911 was not the start of Judgement, nor was this latest banking crisis these were warnings a wake up call.
Now when we speak of judgemnt in the church we must consider this verses Heb 12:5-6 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
The judgement in the church is to clean up the church, correcting the things that are wrong.
