âBehold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah. It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.
Even worse, Stephen has just learned/realized that the Saviour he spent his entire life hating, despising, and foolishly arguing that He didn't exist actually loved Stephen with an unmerited, unconditional, and sacrificial love that He allowed to sun to shine upon Stephen and the rain to fall upon him (and gave him breath and life).
Jesus did not make salvation possible. He accomplished eternal redemption for his elect. If Christ died for Stephen then the Holy Spirit would bring him to faith and repentance in the new birth. If love has no power to save it cant be love.
If God loves you with an everlasting love He will save you from yourself and make you His own.
Ye I hate the fact that they are making money out of this using the bible. There is no fear for God in them. This is God Holy word we talking about.. it took thousands of years to be completed with many blood shed.. for God prophets have always been slain in Israel and even the apostles and our Lord for speaking God word in truth.
Today it gets mocked with a coke and a popcorn next to the family. O the Lord will have vengeance and He is angry with the wicked everyday.
Revelation 17:5-6 and on her forehead a name was written, a mystery, âBABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.â And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered greatly.
Jeremiah 32:39-40 and I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me always, for their own good and for the good of their children after them. I will make an everlasting covenant with them that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; and I will put the fear of Me in their hearts so that they will not turn away from Me.
This is my hope for these guys. I pray that God will have mercy on them.
The beast empire is starting to grow and coming to a point. This is indeed the last head of the beast that will come back the Ottoman Empire.. the beast (AntiChrist) is from the seventh head and is the eight and last empire. Mystery babylon who will be fallen at the return of our King.
Consider John the Baptist. In Matthew 11:11, Jesus said: "Truly, I say to you, among those born of women there has arisen no one greater than John the Baptist." If miracle-working ability were a valid measure of one's greatness and power, we might expect someone like John the Baptist to be an amazing miracle worker. After all, according to Luke 1:17, John was sent to prepare the way for Jesus "in the spirit and power of Elijah." Elijah, of course, did many miracles. Miracles were practically the emblem of his ministry. But John 10:41 says "John did no miracle."
