As Christians, we are not supposed to act individually due to the dangers of God's power
The Authority of Jesus Name is a Christian perogative.

I am not exactly sure what you are trying to communicate, but it would definitely help to keep the titles of posts brief. Also the title of this thread does not match what you have posted above.

You might want to start by posting Scripture and then explaining what it means in context.

My understanding is... that the people who will be living on the earth during the specific, future, limited time period that the bulk of Revelation is covering, will indeed be ABLE to grasp what all of the time-stamps and time-related info (supplied therein) mean, in the context of the time period they will be existing in (and this is why our Lord actually had those things written/disclosed there ;) ). Of course, we know that not everyone will heed His Word at that time (for example, 2Th chpts 1:10b and 2:10-12 show the contrasting beliefs of those existing "in that day" [not a 24-hr day, mind you]), the "in quickness [noun]" time period that the "future" aspects of the Book cover [4:1/1:19c and 1:1/22:6] (i.e. the 7 yrs leading UP TO Christ's Second Coming to the earth, FOR the promised and prophesied earthly Millennial Kingdom). "...the wise will understand" (context: trib yrs)



[note: I do not believe "the Church which is His body" will be present on the earth during that specific, future, limited time period (the "in quickness [noun]" time period/the trib/ as Rom16:20's "in quickness [noun]" applies to "the Church which is His body" (by contrast) and this will involve our being located elsewhere, during that specific time period (1Cor6:3[14], etc)]


There is nothing in Scripture that forbids us from examining what all Scripture itself has to say on the subject, and I believe it is abundant (much more than we commonly realize, IMHO).

I don't recall seeing "Christians are supposed to..." or "Christians are not allowed to..." anywhere in Scripture.

Sorry, I appreciate the feedback. I've been under heavy fire stress and snapped and started misusing the Name of Jesus in public and private due to major frustration for which I'm sorry.
