Mishael on Ephesians 1 chapter 3's comment on 2020-06-16 01:20:36:

Ephesians chapter 3

9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ

10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,

11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord

12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.

God wants us to see the mystery that has either been under explained, or over explained by people.

God purposed

Jesus created

(Holy Spirit performed it)

God wants us to have faith to understand The mystery. Everything we've seen or known reflects what The Godhead has done for man/woman to discover in Gods Word (the Bible). Jesus, is the Word of God. Three persons; One God. They talk amongst themselves. (See verses that start off saying, LET US.)

A brief comment for a large mystery.


Chris's comment on 2020-06-16 00:29:21:

That His original Design displayed in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 1 & 2) would once again be restored in the future. What Satan had done to the Earth & to mankind, causing us to spurn God's Love & Fellowship, would no longer occur again as he, with all unbelievers, would be relegated to the Lake of Fire forever. (Revelation 20 & 22).

So God gives each one of us the opportunity now to turn away from sin & hell (2 Pet 3:9) & to be blessed with the joy of forgiveness, with new life now & also in the world to come.

Jesus tells us plainly in Matthew 13:24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is

likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed (weeds) tares among the wheat, and went his way.

26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from

whence then hath it (weeds) tares?

28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather

them up?

29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together FIRST first the TARES (WEEDS) tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

(first the tares WEEDS get gathered, then the wheat last) could it be any more plain than this?

Matthew 13:36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and

went into the house: and his disciples came unto him,

saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the

good seed is the Son of man;

38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of

the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked


39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is

the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the

fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

yes, this is my understanding as well.


Jesse's comment on 2020-06-14 15:31:06:


We are given an account of the horrific events of the Tribulation in Revelation Chapters 4 through 29. This is a time when God will pour His wrath on on an unbelieving world. There is no place in scripture that tells us that God's wrath will be poured out on believers. In fact, in 1 Thessalonians Chapter 5, it tells us that we are not appointed unto wrath, but to salvation. During the tribulation, there is no mention of the church until Chapter 19 when Christ comes back. But it says that He comes back with all His saints (The Church). If we come back with Him, it would seem to me that we are in heaven with Him during the tribulation. Plus, there is a wedding taking place in heaven before Christ comes back with His saints. We are His bride and this wedding is taking place in heaven while the tribulation is still happening on the earth. So, with that being said, I also agree with you the the church will be removed prior to these horrific events take place. There would be no purpose for us to be here during that time.

Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:52 - In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the LAST TRUMP last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

We are changed at the LAST TRUMP and where is this found?

In REVELATION, the LAST BOOK of the Bible there are 7 trumps and the 7th trump is the LAST ONE and is at the end of the tribulation. there is not a 7th last trump prior to the tribulation.


bob Hilt's comment on 2020-06-14 14:36:38:

The First Resurrection is of the dead in Christ and the Second is after 1000 years. Paul wrote that the Dead in Christ MUST rise FIRST, THEN we who are alive and remain will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

16 ...and the dead in Christ shall RISE FIRST

17 THEN we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them...

In Rev. 20:4-5, John sees the souls of Saints who were BEHEADED for refusing the Mark of the Beast during the Great Tribulation. John writes that they will rise and reign with Christ for 1000 years and that this is the FIRST RESURRECTION!

If according to John, the beheaded rise in the FIRST resurrection and Paul said those who are alive and remain are not caught up until AFTER the dead in Christ are resurrected, then this means the catching up or rapture takes place AFTER tribulation!

Now compare the above with 1 CORINTHIANS 15:20-23:

20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first-fruits of those who slept.

21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

23 But every man in his own order: Christ the first-fruits; AFTERWARDS THOSE WHO ARE CHRIST'S AT HIS COMING.

Notice only one resurrection of the dead in Christ is mentioned here! Which, according to Paul in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 must take place BEFORE we who are alive and remain are "caught up" with them!

When did Jesus say the dead in Christ would be resurrected?

John 6:39-40: Jesus said, "This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up ON THE LAST DAY.


bob Hilt's comment on 2020-06-14 14:34:52:


In Revelation 20:4-6 the last book of the Bible there are only 2 more FUTURE Resurrections (Raptures) spoken of: (after the 2 witnesses appear)

4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the FIRST RESURRECTION. or rapture

6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the FIRST RESURRECTION: on such the SECOND DEATH hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.


Veronica Bowen's comment on 2020-06-14 12:49:29:

I am having a (sometimes heated) discussion. I say the Rapture will come before the Tribulation. He says the Tribulation will come before the Rapture. What are some Scriptures that I can show him that will show that the Rapture will precede the Tribulation?

Thank you.


Mishael's comment on 2020-06-11 23:28:33:

We are awaiting, "The fullness of the Gentiles" to be complete. Search those scriptures.

Go down to the numbers at the bottom (history), and read some of the recent prophetic studies posted on here.


Brenda's comment on 2020-06-11 19:00:39:

Considering all that's going on in the world today, do you think we are living in end times?


Amanda's comment on 2020-06-11 06:19:32:

Its Also The beginning of evils! And what shall I do when these evils shall come?"


Amanda's comment on 2020-06-11 06:17:36:

2 Esdras 16:18

"The beginning of sorrows and great mournings; the beginning of famine and great death; the beginning of wars, and the powers shall stand in fear; the beginning of evils! what shall I do when these evils shall come?"

(the beginning of evils!)


Mishael's comment on 2020-06-10 01:57:24:

I was an astrologer many years. I know a lot about demons since I was born again and washed in the blood of Jesus Christ, 35 years ago.

They don't like to let you go.


Mishael's comment on 2020-06-09 18:37:35:

Mark Chapter 4

And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.

And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.

And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?!!

And he (Jesus) arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

You should ask as they did; what manner of man is this!! He is the son of God!

We should hide in his presence when it's stormy all around us. Stay with Jesus, in His Word. Keep your eyes on Him. If you haven't done it yet: repent of your sins and pray for Jesus to come make His home in your heart. Receive the Holy Spirit.

I feel like were in a scenario where air is being pumped in a balloon. and now were just waiting for it too pop.


Curtis Treaster's comment on 2020-05-05 06:18:22:

Why then do you persecute and mock the Son of Man upon the Sabbath. Is he not Lord over the Sabbath. He has not hidden anything from you but invites you to observe his comings and goings and see ye then the Heavenly Father show approval by various miracles and wonders performed by God in Heaven. He has within him the Holy Spirit yet he is under order to remind the world to fear God as well.


bob Hilt's comment on 2020-04-04 13:12:24:

Great observation for them closing churches. the way most churches are nowadays with heresies and lies they may as well close them. Most use the modern perversion Bibles. They accept things God calls abominations. Persecution shall wake up the true remnant church.
