The true church to me is those who are born of the Spirit of God who has Christ formed in them. Like we read of the woman in Rev 12.. the remnant of God having the man Child in them that wss caught up to God throne.
The false church is the whore full of abomonation and blasphemy in Rev 17
the reformation was the biggest lie, you think the hour of deception is an short time? think on this saying, the wicked have their hour ... and escaping the hour of deception they loved not the truth, so they escaped not the hour of deception ... an hour in this sense is a long time ...
What do you say that fallen angels are? I would suggest they are demons. Remember where Satan is so are the fallen angels:
Yes these are demons Kev..
But what I am trying to show you is that these are not loose.. You know... God always try to make a spiritual reality clear in the way we will understand it.. Where can we go if we are chained? NOWHERE? Now same with these fallen angels and also true if Satan for a thousand years.
Look at the peace there will be
6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. 7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatriceâ€™ den. 9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.
For me one thing always stay true.. The sheep will hear the Shepard voice in calling and preaching.. Yes sometimes error is more hidden but with this guy its clear.. Speaking motivation speaches with great drops of sweat.
16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
But there will be people left.. Read from verse 17.. There will be people that will not worship the King Jesus on earth. These are the ones that will be deceived by Satan if he is loosed after the 1000 years.
So when do you think the thousand years will start after Jesus sets up His Kingdom on earth then after a thousand years he will loose Satan onto His own Kingdom? Doesn't logically make sense. When Christ comes death and sin will be swallowed up yet after a thousand years there will be a tribulation?
1 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. 4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.
Mike wrote: If Satan got bound at Pentecost, the world must be a better place now than it was pre-Pentecost. Yet there is no evidence that would support that idea, Kev. The nations are deceived now, increasingly so. Scripture says when he is bound, he is bound "that he should deceive the nations no more," for a period of time...Rev. 20:3. If he's bound now, it must be with wet noodles.
think that in my opinion Satan can tempt man on earth. But he is restricted from possessing man outright and having great power and able to perform great lying wonders. He is definitely restricted from deceiving the nations I believe. In the great tribulation time he will be given power for a short season to do as he pleases in full.
Hi Kev hope you well brother? We must remember 2 Tes 2 verse 7 where we read of the Spirit restraining the works of iniquity. As soon as He is taken away Satan will deceive with signs and lying wonders even lightning falling from heaven. I believe the False prophet will be indwelled by Satan.
The fact that there are many anti-christs is not the issue. The issue is that you guys keep stating erroneously that the seat of the Papacy is the Anti-Christ and that is just not so. The Anti-Christ will be a man who has not as of yet come on the scene but will come only the scene only at the time of the Great Tribulation Period.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
My God open your eyes regarding the papacy and the roman church.
