I think Jesus as a man (incarnate) limited himself of the full knowledge of God. Part if that limiting was to what was prophesied, which excluded the mystery (age of grace) revealed to us by Paul. With the elimination of the age of grace, the tribulation could have started within the lifetime of some of the apostles and the second coming of Christ (kingdom/millennium) could have begun before all were dead. Could you comment on the logic of my statement?
In Acts 16:17 the possessed slave girl is yelling, “These men are the servants of the Most High God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.” That doesn’t sound like something an enemy would say. Why do you think she said that?
First, thank you for sharing your God given talent of ministry – your site is a daily stop for me.
On the subject of prayer, you have written that we can’t petition the Lord while we’re out of fellowship, except to ask for forgiveness and receive restoration. I was wondering if you could expand on that further.
When we are in Heaven with God, will the Holy Spirit be there, and will we see Him? Are Father, Son and Holy Spirit three equal entities or is there a descending order? I notice many times in the New Testament that Father and Son are mentioned together, but rarely is the Holy Spirit included.
For those left behind who ultimately come to Christ after the Rapture, what scripture or thoughts might you have regarding self defense ? Being that the world will quickly go crazy, overt violence the order of the day, then too the mandate which will lead to the persecution of Christians those refusing the mark of the beast, bodies could stack up like cord wood. I have to believe that not all Christians will want to go quietly as sheep lead to the slaughter. Admittedly, the overwhelming power of the Anti-Christ will be daunting to say the least; but still are not those left behind charged with the responsibility to fight till the end?
