    Enjoying your study Stephen. My husband is currently writing about the book of Ezekiel and end time events…so I also have been spending a lot of time in that book this last year or so. I pray the Holy Spirit guides you as you write, and will touch hearts who read your study, my brother.

  • Estelle,I am glad you are following this study.I too am a student of Biblical study of the End Times.With the forming of united Europe, The talk of the forming of The United North America( The united States, Canada, Mexico ) and The movement fore the Arab nation who are uniting under their muslim faith and their aim to destroy Isreal. I think what we are begining to witness is the forming of ten regions each governed by a leader, hence, the ten kings who give their power to The Atichrist.Here in the untited states The government Is using corn to make biofule, which now has cause a shortage on corn, fore people and live stock to eat. The government has begun to rashion corn and rice. The scripture is coming true when it says a day wage fore one’s daily bread. I believe the end is near if not already started.This is why we need to use every day God has given us to live the teaching of Christ before our neighbor and to spread His gospelwhile there still is light.Stephen

    What a fall Lucifer made! What a sense of betrayal that God must have felt, I can feel God’s sadness at the losses. And God’s love to send Jesus to us for redemption. Nice writing. Smiles from Jane:-)

  • Jane,God is truly saddened, By Satan and a third of the angels who took part in the attempted to dethrone God. God is truly saddened when poeple reject His gift of salvation, and His hand of fellowship.God is saddened when His childen chose to turn away from His will for their lives, and chases after the cruptable withering treasures of this world.I am glad you have read lesson 2 of the mini series. I hope you will stay with the series. I believe God will surely bless you.Stephen

    I do appreciate your series Stephen, I often feel sad and shame over the heart ache we have caused our Father. He always uplifts me with His unconditional love and that gentle loving reply – I knew it would happen before man was created…I love him so much and wish I could escape my fleshly desires always just to praise and worship Him the way He deserves. Keep them coming :o)

  • Dear friend,The closer we get to God, the more His light reveals the rough edges we have, that must be removed, we may be conformed to the image of Jesus. We must submit ourself to His word and His Holy spirit, fore these are the Sculptor’s tools He uses to mold us under the work of His hands.I share the same desire. I long fore the day when my sin nature is gone and never to return.Stephen

    I am doing a study of Rev. and am now teaching ch. 6 this Sunday. I think for all indications that the church… “Ekklesia”….will be gone before the 7 years of tribulation. And with the first seal being broken in ch. 6, I think that there is a link of the 3 and one half years between that verse and the second verse, when the real trouble starts to come. There will be a 3 and 1/2 years of peace……before God begins His “great Tribulation”…. And the 6th. verse is where the Antichrist makes his appearance for the first time, as a world ruler…. And yes, all of this is centered around Israel, whom God will see is redeemed in the end. All of this begin in the time of Abraham….and the birth of Ismael…..and then Isaac. And the hatred between the 2 mothers….and has ever been so. Also, the gentile nation of Arabs is described in the book of Genesis. But from the 2nd. verse on, is all the wrath that is poured out upon mankind for those 3 and 1/2 years. Then the second coming….where Christ will come back to set up His kingdom on this earth for 1,000 years. And so it goes on. But we are seeing so many signs of what is the future to come. But I do believe the body of Christ will be gone before the first seal is broken, from scripture and the fact that the Greek word for church, “Ekklesia” is not used again for the church until the end of Rev. The “Haggios” (Greek) ….is used for the church, meaning all who ever believed…an all inclusive word…instead of us who are saved by grace. There will be multitudes saved out of the tribulation, but by martyrdom… I think I would rather be saved NOW….by grace!!!. :)

    • Words to live by and so true Stephen. Elaine is so right in that we The church will soon be ruptured, taken up. We will not go through the Tribulation, as this is Gods wrath.
      1 Thessalonians 5:9 ) For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ*.

    he loves the Church for which he shed his blood, and although the 7 years tribulation is Gods judgement and a time of great sorrow, his desire is that even through this time of the seven seals and seven trumpets, many will turn to his son Jesus..

    From the end of revelations Chapter 4, the Church is no more mentioned as On earth.
