Praise be to God who by his abundant mercy has begotten us again unto a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
Always good te hear evil overcame by the Grace of God.
I also had an weird experience where I will just feel so numb in my bed,in my entire body that I can't even move my tongue and trying with all my might to move but cannot.. knowing something is trying to do hurt me. Even at nights i would just stand next to my bed and waking up not knowing how that happened and feeling a very dark presence around me.
Same here, Dr Tim, in a way, anyway. Things I saw while astral projecting, which I practiced for many years, scared me to the core, but something I was allowed to see while wide awake one night and laying in bed sealed the deal for the notion of God, angels, and Satan/demons. Something I watched for a good 5min.
Wow this must have been a experience.. sounds far to freaky for me. Always thought people is just lying and imagine things.
Hope all is well? Was just thinking of this scriptures don't know if they are usable in this regard..
1 Peter 2:8
8 and ‚ÄúA stone of stumbling And a rock of offense.‚ÄĚ They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed.
4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
I know this is false teachers but they are ordained to condemnation.
21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? 22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
I can understand by the word of God how he asks for a drop of water to cool his tongue for he is tormented in the flame and how the conscious says guilty thousands of times already like a worm that never dies.. waiting his judgment in front of a man that God has raised from the dead. Christ the Son if the living God. The Almighty and all Holy. Who's face the earth and heaven will flee from.
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Doctrinal Footnote: Apostasy 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
Paul said the great delution must happen first that will create apostasy and the Antichrist be revealed that we know is mid tribulation.
Only after that we will gather with the Lord in the air.
14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. 15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. 16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.
This is just after the last trump. I thank God he opened my eyes from a pre trib rapture.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words
You think those are the same angel in both passages..hehe obviously it is.
