    "Lord will only few be saved?"

    Quite true! Jesus said: "And someone asked Him, “Lord, will only a few be saved [from the penalties of the last judgment]?” And He said to them, “Strive to enter through the narrow door [continuing in faith and forcing aside unbelief and the attractions of sin]; for many, I tell you, will try...

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 Vs. Matthew 24:29-31

    Hello again, evmur, I previously agreed with you regarding this issue in that, Jesus said believers would have trials and tribulations, which come at the hands of men and the powers of darkness and which has been the case from the on-set of the church. However, once the church is gathered, then...

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 Vs. Matthew 24:29-31

    Hello Mindwrencher, When combining all of the scriptures regarding the resurrection, it soon becomes apparent that resurrection takes place in phases, which is called "the first resurrection." Because people have not done a complete study on this, the take the word "First" to mean "only," which...

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 Vs. Matthew 24:29-31

    Good day, Evmur, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18: This is the event of the Lord's appearing to gather the church, dead and living, where we are caught up to meet Him in the air, where according to John 14:1-3, He takes us back to the Father's house. This takes place prior to the God's wrath. Matthew...

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 Vs. Matthew 24:29-31

    Good day, Jackson! First, let us list the correct wording of the scripture: "If anyone is destined for captivity, into captivity he will go; if anyone is to die by the sword, by the sword he must be killed.” Here is a call for the perseverance and faith of the saints...

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 Vs. Matthew 24:29-31

    Your question is not relevant to the issue, as it has to do with 1 Thess.4:16-18 not being the same event as Matt.24:29-31. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 = The resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of the living immortal and glorified and caught up. Matthew 24:29-31 = The Lord's...

    How the Pre-Trib Rapture Became Popular in the Modern Church

    Agreed! Though Satan becomes angry after he and his angels are cast out of heaven, that time period should not be referred to as Satan's wrath, because his being cast out is the result of the sounding of the 7th trumpet, which is God's wrath. Satan is simply angry at that time because he knows...

    the ruler to come in Dan 9

    You are correct in that, the "He" in verse 26 is referring to "The Ruler" of the people. However, it speaking about that future antichrist that is to come. In Matt.24:15, Jesus quoted Daniel 9:27 saying, "So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination of desolation,’ described by...

    Documentary—7 Pretrib Problems and the Prewrath Rapture

    I totally agree with this. God foreknew and predestined those whom He chose to save before the world began and at that time wrote their names in the book of life. Actually Rev.13:8 is pretty much saying the same thing as Rev.17:8: "And those who dwell on the earth whose names were not written...

    I think that I might be gay

    Hello again, What happens is, and you may have already experienced this is that, when you are trying to turn from this and fail, the voices will come that will say, "Don't bother praying about it. You keep having the same feelings and keep doing the same things." The powers of darkness will...

    Hell

    Satan will not be the superintendent the lake of fire, but will be one of its prisoners. "And the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, into which the beast and the false prophet had already been thrown. There they will be tormented day and night forever and...

    I think that I might be gay

    Hello idkJohn1334, First of all, that fact that sexual immorality is sin and keeps us separated from God and keeps us condemned is something to always keep in mind. That said, if we have desires of doing things that we know are sin, then we should be resisting those desires and continue to...

    2000 years and end times connection

    Hello Shc, From the time of Adam to Christ was approximately 4000 years. And from Christ to present about 2000 years, equaling 6000 years. The millennial kingdom will bring it to 7000, seven being the number of God. God's wrath is coming upon this world via the seals, trumpets and bowl...

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 Vs. Matthew 24:29-31

    Because I can present the scriptures to prove my claim and explain why and also show them the error of their false teachings and why they are false. One of the problems that we have today, is that even when you provide the scriptures and explain it to them, they circumvent it, because they just...

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 Vs. Matthew 24:29-31

    The great tribulation is indeed the wrath of God. It's God's tribulation, not man's. The use of the word 'tribulation' is not restricted to the tribulation that believers suffer as a result of their faith in Christ. As I said, the seals, trumpets and bowl judgment, which make up God's wrath...

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 Vs. Matthew 24:29-31

    Hello Evmur, I don't understand why you continue to attempt to correct me on things that I myself have always been in agreement with I and f which I also teach? As I said before and in many posts, Jesus said that believers would have trials and tribulations as result of our faith in Him, which...

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 Vs. Matthew 24:29-31

    Those that are seen under the altar in heaven at the opening of the 5th seal, are those who will have become saints after the church is gathered and who will have died during the first 3 1/2 years of the seven year period. The reference to them waiting until their fellow servants and brothers...

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 Vs. Matthew 24:29-31

    This has to do with the church during the church period. In fact, the letters to the seven churches symbolically represent the entire church period, i.e. the "what is now" portion of what John was told to write and which we are still in. This below takes place during the "what must take place...
