70 Week Prophesy Of Daniel
Sorry, that was a typo. It should have read 70 x 7 = 490 years.

70 Week Prophesy Of Daniel
Maree and Therese, the 70 week prophecy of Daniel has already been fulfilled. There is no pre-tribulation rapture or 7 year tribulation in Dan 9.

70 x 70 = 490 years. God gave Daniel's people 490 years to accomplish what He asked of them in Daniel 9:24. They did not complete His requirements. Jesus, the Messiah arrived after the 490 years were up and He was rejected by Daniel's people. Dan 9:25. He, the Messiah, Jesus was cut off when He was crucified in the middle of His ministry. Dan 9:26.

The prince who came after Jesus in 70 AD destroyed the temple in Jerusalem causing the sacrifice to cease. Dan 9:26-27.

Mark Of The Beast
It might also be possible that the woman riding the beast, who is a city could be Jerusalem. She is called the mother of Harlots and abominations of the earth in Rev 17. God often referred to the Israelites as Harlots. The Catholic Church/Papal system is not the original church/kingdom that God set up in the wilderness from which all religions and denominations originate.

We see also that the beast will make war with the Lamb and turn on the woman to destroy her in Rev. 17:12-18. The destruction comes with great detail in Rev. 18. Also see Jeremiah 7:30-34. In Rev. 21, the New Jerusalem comes down from Heaven.

Is Left Behind Rapture True
Michael e asked "Why does the law, prophets and the ministry of the twelve apostles never mention the hidden wisdom of God found exclusively in Paul's ministry". Are you serious?

"But I have called you friends because everything I have learned from my Father, I have made known to you." John 15:15

Surely, the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret council to His servants, the prophets". Amos 3:6-8.

"But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be fulfilled just as He proclaimed to His servants, the prophets." Rev 10:7.

Is Left Behind Rapture True
Maybe we are making this too complicated. God gave Moses the law and Jesus gave His disciples a new commandment.

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another as I have loved you. By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another." John 13:34-35 This new commandment does not negate God's law. If it did then Jesus would have said so.

Keeping the commandments of God and holding to the testimony of Jesus are requirements for entering into God's kingdom. Matt 19:16-26, Rev. 12:17 and Rev. 14:12.

Who Will Be Saved
John, Jesus did what He said in John 19:30 and Matt 1:21. When He said "it is finished", I believe He meant His suffering as the Passover Lamb was finished. Also see John 17:1-8 which tells us about the work that His Father gave Him to do. It was His words/teachings. Speaking of His disciples He prays, "I have given them the words that you gave me and they have received them." Now read John 1:9-14. It is His words, teachings that were rejected by most of the world. They could have taken His words into their minds/intellects but preferred the words of the Pharisees, Scribes, false prophets and false apostles.

I believe those who are in Hell right now, are asleep and unaware of their whereabouts. Rev. 20:11-15.

Who Will Be Saved
John9346, I certainly do believe that Jesus is God and that is why I live, breath and trust in His teaching. His words in John 12:42-50 tell us just how important it is to believe in His testimony. Also see Matt 7:21-29 and then ask yourself if Paul agrees with Him.

What does it matter if I believe in predestination? Will it change anything if God has already decided my fate?

Who Will Be Saved
John9346, Jesus does not disagree with me but He does disagree with Paul. I have done nothing but quote His words and His explanation of them.

Please read slowly and carefully beyond John 6:39. There is much more in John 6 to learn and to understand than first meets the eye.

Who Will Be Saved
God knows the end from the beginning but that does not mean He has predestined us to salvation. Jesus' sheep are no surprise to God. His sheep know Him and He knows them. Why do they know Him? John 6:44-51. "and they shall all be taught of God. Every man that has heard and learned of the Father comes unto me." If you have taken the time to learn and know the Father, you will recognize the Son.

God is waiting for the gospel of the kingdom to be preached throughout the world so that everyone will hear it and then the end will come. Matt 24:14. The gospel of the kingdom is the testimony/words of Jesus that He gave to His eyewitness disciples who wrote them down so that we could read and learn the truth. John 18:37.

Mark Of The Beast
There are 2 beasts in Revelation 13. One comes up out of the sea (One world government) Rev 13:1-3 and the 2nd one comes up out of the earth (Satan) Rev 13:11-18. The dragon (Satan) gives his power to the leader (false prophet) of the one world government. Rev 13:4-12.

The battle for truth begins and those who do not live in truth and refuse to learn it will be deceived and take the beast's mark. Rev 19:20. Those who know their God and believe His Word unto death are marked for eternal life. Rev.14:12-14. How many Christians are praying for spiritual insight?

The New Testament Books
John9346, the answer to your question about Duet 27:26 is found in Matt 19:16-22 and Matt 22:33-40. Jesus does not include the 613 commandments given to Israel but teaches the ten His Father wrote on stone.

The New Testament Books
John9346, God's covenant is the ten commandments, not 613 ceremonial laws. "He declared to you His covenant which He commanded you to perform, that is the ten commandments and He wrote them on two tablets of stone." Duet 4:13.

In your response to me, you quoted Jeremiah 31:31-32 but left out verse 33 which reads "But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days declares the Lord, I will put MY LAW within them and on their heart I will write it and I will be their God and they shall be my people".

The New Testament Books
We have been taught that human flesh cannot keep the law, that the law is somehow flawed but that implies an imperfection in God who wrote it with His own finger on stone.

The covenant God made with Israel is the ten commandments. Duet 4:13. The new/renewed covenant is the same covenant written in the hearts and minds of those who keep it. Jeremiah 31:31-33.

Nowhere does Jesus teach the abolishment of God's commandments nor does He teach that they are obsolete. His words in Matt 5 and Matt 19 are 100% in agreement with His Father in regard to the law. The idea that God gave His people commandments that He knew they could never keep is a tare in His field in which He planted only good seed. Matt 13:37-43.

Christ In You
Trav, neither God or His Son failed. The lost sheep failed because they would not listen to their Messiah's voice. Actually, you are the one saying they failed, if I am understanding you correctly, you are saying Jesus was sent to them but couldn't find them. And if Jesus couldn't find them do you think He expects us to find them?

I have no pastor or preacher. My teacher is the Spirit of Truth, my way is God's way and my eternal life is Jesus Christ.

Christ In You
Trav, Jesus was sent by His Father to the lost sheep of Israel. God knew where His lost sheep were and Jesus found them but they did not want to be found, not by Him. He was not what they were expecting and not the Messiah they wanted and they set out to kill Him. John 10:31-32, Matt 21:33-46. Except for His disciples and a few others, the lost sheep could not hear His voice.

The lost sheep of Matt 15:24 and the other sheep of John 10 are all those who hear His voice and follow Him. That is the only way into the sheepfold. John 18:37.

Under The Law Of Tithing
David, that is so true. I will have to go and study the 7 seals again so that I can correctly understand and explain them. Thanks.
