Mishael on harvesting's 1 Samuel Chapter 2 comment on 6/15/2020, 12:05am...

Nobody AGREES on when the Rapture takes place! As if we know more than Jesus?!

Only God the Father knows.

Get your lamp filled with oil.

We're told to be ready and watching.

Jesus said if you love me, feed my sheep.

He said go ye; the Harvest is ready. The workers are few.

My co-workers put coal in my Christmas stocking every year. I said at least give me enough to warm a hotdog! Next Christmas I get 2 lumps of coal.

What are we doing with the Gift that Jesus has given to us?

Elizabeth, there have been & will be a lot of comments thrown about on this subject. I don't want to buy into it, but to ask you three questions:

1. have you ever seen a tall ship coming in from the (flat) horizon? You can use a pair of binoculars to get a better view, but what do you see? First the upper part of the ship appears (i.e. the funnel, mast or bridge), then the lower part appears (i.e. the hull). Why is this? Now, if the Earth was flat, we should see the whole ship as soon as it comes into view, shouldn't we, & not parts of it?

2. have you actually seen a Lunar Eclipse, i.e. when the Earth comes between the Sun & the Moon & casts its shadow on the Moon. Again those binoculars will come in handy if you want to see one clearly, but when you look at the progression of a full lunar eclipse, what is the shape of the Earth's shadow on the moon? Is it straight line? Or does it reveal a slight curve, depicting a small portion of the circumference of the Earth?

3. and in reference to Isa 11:12: "four corners of the Earth". It has already been explained that this is just an expression to denote the 'full expanse of the Earth'. But why I mention this now is because of what you just wrote: "I have found there is deception in every area of man's knowledge". Now, we all know that "area" is a lineal measurement & it would be difficult to ascribe that measurement to man's knowledge, since knowledge is stored in groups of neurons in the brain & difficult to measure in lineal terms. So, to be true to English usage in this regard, we must admit that maybe, just maybe, the 'four corners of the Earth' are not literal corners, just as 'every area of man's brain' is not a literal measurement.
