Blessed be God,
1 Corinthians 15: 51,
I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep,
but we shall all be changed
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an
eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall
sound, and the dead shall be raised
incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
Paul talking to the Christians
at Corinth, saying listen my brothers, we are not all
going to die, but we are all going to be changed, the
dead are going to be raised first - spiritual and
glorified, then we Christians who are alive will be changed too.

1 Then shall the
kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps,
and went forth to meet the bridgroom.
2 And five of them
were wise and five were foolish.
3 They that were
foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
4 But the wise took
oil in their vessels with their lamps.
5 While the
bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
6 And at midnight
there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet
7 Then all those
virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8 And the foolish
said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9 But the wise
answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you:
but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
10 And while they
went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with
him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
11 Afterward came
also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12 But he answered
and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
13 Watch therefore,
for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
1 Thessalonians 4:
15 For this
we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive
and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them
which are asleep.
16 For the
Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the
voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead
in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up
together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
brothers are not in darkness that that day
should overtake you as a thief.... Paul
talking about the Day of The Lord, which takes
thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book even to the time of
the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be
Today, 3/30/07 I was
doing some reading about Sir Isaac Newton, a most noble man, who
in the late 1600's, early part of the 1700's - gave what looked
like a pretty major attempt at interpreting the 70 Weeks
Prophecy of Daniel. Daniel received the Prophecy back in the 600 BC time
era, by the archangel Gabriel. Newton may of been a sole
pioneer in trying to interpret the prophecy which according to
the Bible was sealed until the end. From my quick glance
at his Seventy Weeks writing it didn't look like He
got the prophecy right, I would say because it wasn't time for it to
be known yet. Hence God's providence at work :)
Not until I would guess to say maybe fairly recently, has
Daniel's Prophecy been able to be understood and interpreted
Daniel's 70 Weeks Prophecy
The Archangel Gabriel told
Daniel to seal the book to the time of the end, where many will be
running to and fro (air, car travel) and knowledge would be increased.
Well let's look at knowledge
real quick. Maybe about 3 months ago, I read an article about I
believe it was an Intel Chip that I think is to be unveiled in 2009 or
2011, The chip, now get this, this is pretty unbelievable. The
chip - a computer chip - will be able to do what today it takes a
computer or computers that fill like a 2,000 sq ft area. 2,000 sq
ft, is like the size of a decent sized house. All that computing
info, is going to be put into the size of like a Golden Grahams cereal
square, scaled down from the size of a house. That is pretty
majorly insane. I don't know how much more sophisticated things
Just another indicator of:
it's gotta be the end of days
This web-site offers a lot of
evidence of the times we are living in.
Something real interesting I
just read was from Jack Kinsella too at:
He was interpreting this
verse with some words I believe interpreted from the original
' And the powers of the heavens
will be shaken,' referring to Jesus return at the end of the age.
The verse interpreted from
Greek reads: And the power of uranium will be
That is pretty crazy.
As far as everything else,
The Moral condition of this country and I would say the world is pretty
much the pits.
What will happen when the
restrainer, the Church (Holy Spirit) is taken out of the earth at the
Rapture - When The Anti-Christ or lawless one is revealed? One can
only imagine. The Church is like the salt of the earth, If you
take the Church away, man's lawlessness will be unbelievable.
People will get just what they wanted, treachery and deceit to the full.
Then to control everybody they will introduce the Mark most likely.
This will lead to eternal death to all who take the identification of the
last world leader.
God's question to Satan and
the Angels was this: Who do you love more? Me or yourselves?
Satan talking for his angels, with all pride said we love ourselves
Michael the Archangel then
shouted who is Like God?
Life without God is Futile --
quote from a wise girl at www.christiancafe.com
And As for me, I will serve
God along with Michael.
