This is the way the left plays the game. They do everything to make it appear that they are concerned for the health and well-being of the mother. In reality, they couldn’t care less. What they want – like all globalists and those who represent them – is to have control over the total population number. It’s not about caring about women. They simply make it sound like that. Eventually, they go the whole nine yards and grab it all because they want women to be able to murder their child even during a partial-birth abortion. If women die in the process, oh well. Who cares? These feminist lawmakers don’t care. People like Andrew Cuomo don’t care, because he simply needs to do whatever it takes so that he will be re-elected and he knows how important women’s “health” issues and “rights” are to retaining his seat.
The Tribulation will be a time of unparalleled evil and the persecution of Christians will be a daily experience throughout the entire globe, including America. God will use the 144,000 Jewish evangelists of Revelation 7 to be His messengers spreading the gospel far and wide. It is not coincidence that after the 144,000 are sealed, we read starting in Revelation 7:9 that there are multitudes of people became martyrs during the Tribulation.
I have to constantly check my heart and mind. It is so terribly easy some times to “hate” the sinner instead of the sin. I will admit it. I am not Jesus and I know that I do not love as He loved. Yes, He loved with words, but He also loved with actions and the way in which He responded to people after they treated Him like He was a piece of manure on the ground. I have to ask myself, how would I respond in such a situation? Do I love the lost enough to sincerely ask God to blot my name out of the book of life?
It is the same with Daniel 9. Gabriel is literally speaking about a total of 70 “sevens.” The word sevens is a determiner, but without knowing what it determines, we cannot know for certain what the total amount would be. But since the entirety of Daniel 9 is dealing with years, then that context gives us the information we need to know. Gabriel tells Daniel that 70 “sevens” (of years) will be applied to the Jewish people. Once we understand this, it is simply a matter of multiplying 70 (the length of time) times seven sets of years to equal 490. We know that the sevens is joined to years because of how perfectly the first 7 “sevens” (“weeks”) plus the 62 “sevens” (“weeks”) works out from the beginning point of Artaxerxes’ decree to rebuilt Jerusalem in 445 BC (cf. Nehemiah 2:1-8). If the first 69 “sevens of years” works out perfectly, then obviously the final or 70th “seven” is the same amount of time – one seven represented by one seven-year period. I’m amazed at many commentators change the length of this last week.
The fact that he portrayed me as not having the ability and biblical knowledge to respond to him is deceitful. It is duplicitous. In effect, he is LYING to those who read his blog (if anyone reads it, that is). Since he would not allow my response, I chose to create an article out of it in the above linked article. For more information, I suggest reading that article before this one.
My goal in pointing this out is to simply show him for what he is – filled with deceit. Instead of allowing me to respond to him and allowing those who may come to his site to read it as well – he chose to not even give me that opportunity. Instead, deceitfully, he pretended as though I had never responded, which was not true.
I pray that the Lord will help him see his own duplicity. He will certainly be better off for it and the end result will be that the Lord will be glorified. It will be a win-win situation. Pray for him, will you?
In one swell swoop, they combine two errors into one and believe they are correct. Is it any wonder they are so judgmental toward people who don’t believe as they do? They believe they and they alone have the truth. People who don’t see eye to eye with them on the return of Jesus, the Rapture, etc., can and do lose any salvation they may have had. They do not believe in eternal security and while this is not common for all PostTribbers, it seems to be an ever-present issue for many.
Because they believe they and they alone are correct, they have established this arrogance in that they believe they are obligated to castigate, denigrate, and condemn anyone who doesn’t agree with them. The PreTribber (like myself) is considered to be the most egregious individual of all because they believe I am fully deceived, unsaved, and deceiving those who are either saved (but in danger of losing their salvation) or on their way to possibly being saved and I’m (according to PostTribbers) are driving them off the path.
