I already know that we are in the last days and so I don’t spend energy trying to figure out if I’m post, pre or whatever “rapture.” I have heard too many unproductive arguments and verbal fighting over which is which and who is right. It doesn’t matter to me because my salvation is not based on which one I believe in and I avoid like the plague conversations that focus on this subject. We are saved by faith, not by fear. So frightening people into the kingdom ain’t going to work. Maybe what will work are those who do hear folks talking about this topic and then they go on a search for the Truth. Of course along the way while looking for Truth, they will find Jesus who is Truth.

Exodus 23:14-25:40

So often, when I read God’s Word I have to be reminded that the Bible confirms itself, each book explains and confirms all other books. As I read verses twenty through twenty-three, of the twenty-third chapter, the words of David’s Twenty-third Psalm flooded my thoughts,

Behold, I send an Angel before you to keep and guard you on the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared…. When My Angel goes before you and brings you to the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, and I reject them and blot them out, (Exodus 23:20-23 AMP)

God promised back then and still promises to day to set a table in the wilderness, in the presence of our enemies. Wow! To be a people in the world but not of the world (John 15;17) means that we live in the midst of those who don’t like us, our enemies (Matthew 12:30). God deals with His enemies, which are our enemies, by placing us in the midst of the enemies. So I put forth some rhetorical questions, who battles God’s enemies, God or us? Does our presence in the midst cause God to send “Hornets” before us to drive out His enemies, or do we wrest power and control away by political force, whichever way we believe that may manifests itself? In other words, can we legislate righteous behavior?

Grace and peace,

I think when it comes to "end times", we do get hung up trying to figure out His return. But let's face it, our earthly life is but a mist, a vapor, 100 years if we're healthy. So we will have our appointed time with God at His knowing not ours. I got side tracked on the "Left Behind" books and by many Biible teachers interpretation the "tribulation" has already occurred! I am now inclined to believe that as well that when Jesus returns, no more 2nd chances, sin will be dealt its final blow. Anyway, it is harvest time now! Lord help me to be bold to proclaim Jesus to all who will listen and may I do so in love and truth. I know I have fallen way short of the mark on this task The Lord has called of me. Thanks be to God for this Bible blog.

I attended a bible study on Revelation here at my workplace. The gentleman that conducted it was very smart and the teaching was excellent.. however, his lecturer voice put me to sleep.. (I'm sure that was a tactic of the enemy now that I look back on it..)
I eventually dropped out because I really didn't want to skip my lunch to hear the gloom and doom of the end of times; I really needed to be lifted up and energized on a Wednesday afternoon...
I don't know.
Revelation is a fascinating book.. it's just.. so much for my little brain to handle.

I really don't understand why or how ministers who say they have read and studied the bible are giving dates for Jesus return this scripture clearly says No one knows the day or time only God. We have to stand on Gods word,some times leaders get side swiped by their titles and swollen heads. get your answers from Gods word its our guide book.Matthew verses 36-39 touched me today.
