  1. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. I Thessalonians 5:4 I want to give some backstory to fill in the gaps of some of the history of things referred to in some key verses, and some of the upcoming events that have been discussed. The Apostle Paul prophetically speaks of the day of The Return: I Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. I Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord hi
  2. Hey T-Bone, my pleasure, thanks for reading it and commenting, if the day is not next week, at least it's got us thinking about the possibility and maybe drawing closer to Our Father and His Son...there's one more post though :)
  3. T-Bone I wanted to say that at one point in my end times studies I had to go to the scriptures to make sure we weren't going have to endure the tribulation, but then I read all the scriptures in the epistles that confirm the tribulation will not happen till there's a falling away first, there are an overwhelming number of scriptures in that vein. So many preach the opposite though partially confusing to whom it is addressed, Israel will endure the Tribulation but will be redeemed and accept the Messiah during that period, but we who have believed Christ now, will be in heaven. I also
  4. I hear ya T-Bone, not to mention the Hurricanes of unusual size, Harvey, Irma, & any other pending Tropical depressions, the Mexico City earthquake, and the wholesale deception of the American public in this last election that is still leading people captive ushering in what is prophecied in Revelation. Here is a quote from Jesus Christ Himself: Revelation 3:1-6 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. 2 Be watch
  5. Yes, at the least I think that someone is trying to get our attention, signs are everywhere. Whether this is The Return in September or October or beyond is up for debate. I see all these things as signs from the One who created the Heavens. Perhaps the major war is the one that comes after The Return: Revelation 13:5-18 5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dw
  6. My pleasure T-Bone! The Stellarium link: http://www.stellarium.org is so cool! With it's software you can look up any day, hour or location clear back to the birth of Christ and beyond-backward and forward in time...kinda like God...he he he :) and see the stars day or night and their positions, astrological signs etc, highly customizable and free. Good stuff. Our Heavenly Father is apparantly all about math and precision, one can retrace the behavior of stars thousands of years ago, we just have to know where to look. I'm sure hundreds of thousands saw the Bethlehem Christ Star wh
  7. I found this article in the link below, well presented and compelling with much background information and good arguments from the author regarding the September 23rd planetary alignments. I strongly encourage you to read the whole article on this webpage and not just the excerpts I print here. Bear in mind this article is an interpretation from a viewpoint, take it for what it is. I don't agree with everything written but feel overall there's some great end times information. This individual has done so much more research and had much more time than I in the subject matter and in my o
  8. I found this great explaination of The Feast of Tabernacles or Sukkot, which also happens in the fall every year, either at the end of September or in October. The week long celebration starts this year on October 5, 2017. I should have included it in the first post on this thread as a source for Jewish holidays coming up this fall. Below is a excerpt from this website: http://www.messianicgoodnews.org/the-feast-of-tabernacles-sukkot/ "INGATHERING OF THE HARVEST" "The festivals reflect the agricultural economy of Ancient Israel. The Feast of Tabernacles
  9. T-Bone, I hear ya, I feel the same way. Some things in some of the books or internet pages I've read havent seemed correct or not fully taught-not complete, so I've often sought out more information to see if what was taught is wonky and/or also to look at it deeper. It's also the reason why I've not invested in commentaries in the past, since that is someone else's opinion on scripture too. But, wrestling with some difficult scriptures, especially those which have both foretold a past event and are still foretelling an end times event, they really seem to need scholarly insight to help dec
  10. Wow, T-Bone, great response! Thanks for the suggestions! You know, I've never owned a commentary and have shied away from them in the past, but lately I'm appreciating the input of scholars who've really worked and studied the scriptures. I'm realizing those who have gone before me can really flesh out those hard to understand passages. I'm with you on the iPad vs kindle, I tend to favor using the kindle app on both iPad and iPhone although I often also have a hard copy too in addition to the digital, and I get audiobook additions for driving across town or longer trips. I really en
  11. T-Bone, how useful/helpful are the 2 Reference books you listed, the Zondervan commentary and Keli & Delitzsch Commentary? I don't own these, should I add them to my library, and as a bonus they're not too expensive on Amazon Kindle or used?
  12. Waysider, now I understand what you meant by this, I should have asked for clarification :) Isaiah 19:23 In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians. T-Bone, yes, the prophetic verse about the Jews, the Egyptians, and the Assyrians worshiping the true God together, definitely future prophecy. Makes sense, holy ground which was once profane. Hmmm. Maybe That's what's meant by the altar, pillar and sign in Egypt too. You know there may ha
  13. T-Bone, I concur, the pyramid conclusion is hard to swallow as well as some other points he writes about. There's a lot of end times passages in scripture that have no obvious answers and some that we can surmise we know the answer, but who knows, it's like seeing thru a glass darkly. Maybe we'll know after the Lord returns and that might have to be sufficient.
  14. Waysider, some date the pyramids to be significantly older but I don't know about the true age or the writing of Isaiah, but it reads as if it's future prophecy. Reading the whole chapter on Biblehub.com in the NIV version the heading does say it's a prophecy against Egypt although I'm not sure if most bible scholars say that or not. Lots of unknowns. Bolshevik, I don't know who built the pyramids, but that video does show an interesting theory. It reminds me of a documentary I saw on the 7 ancient wonders of the world about the hanging gardens of Babylon, which they discovered were pr
  15. Bolshevik, tons of videos and theories online. T-Bone, I don't know what I think yet about it, I haven't had the time yet to devote to finding out about it. The verse states it shall be a sign and a Witness. That is significant. The scripture, Isaiah 19 sounds like it's a future prophecy if you read the chapter some of the things it says haven't happened yet. Then there's the words 'midst' and 'border' and 'altar'. Patrick Heron states the midst and border describes the ancient way of thinking where there was a referenced horizontal demarcation border dividing upper and lower Egyp
