What is the Coming Tribulation All About? Part 14

After reading this section of Scripture, it is fairly easy to understand these 200 million as being of supernatural origin. John is not describing human beings here, is he? He is describing creatures that carry riders. These creatures have heads like lions instead of heads like horses. These lions are able to shoot fire, smoke, and brimstone. They almost sound like dragons. The “horses” not only have power in their mouths, but in their tails as well. Their tails are like snakes including heads. These creatures have the ability to kill what is in front of them as well as what is behind them.

Can Christians Have Assurance of Salvation?

With respect to assurance of salvation, there are essentially two main groups. First, there is the group (of which I am part) that says salvation is eternal. Once God grants it, He will never take it back. Second, there is the group that does not believe the Bible teaches eternal salvation as such. They believe that salvation can be lost if the Christian does not stay on the proper path.

Point of Clarification Regarding the Rapture and Tribulation

The one thing I think all of us Christians lack (and that includes me) is a more prominent display of authentic humility (to God) in our lives. No one living today is Jesus Christ even though there are at least five people alive right now who claim to be Him. No one has His understanding. No one has His wisdom. No one has His sinless nature. We must endeavor to adopt a true spirit of humility (that only God can provide) so that disagreements over doctrine do not become points of contention and knock-down, drag-outs.

Our God and Savior Christ Jesus Overcomes Sin in and Through Us

Jesus Christ IS God. He provided Himself as a substitutionary atonement for us. In doing so, He provided salvation and when we receive His salvation, He indwells us via the Holy Spirit and we become “partakers of the divine” as Peter tells us in 2 Peter 1:4. We ourselves are not gods, but through His divine power, we can overcome sin, unrighteousness, and ungodliness.

What is the Coming Tribulation All About? Part 13

Notice though that the faces of these locusts had faces like men’s faces and hair like women’s hair. Their teeth did not remind John of human teeth but of teeth in a lion’s mouth. They wore breastplates of iron and they had wings, which all told made tremendous noise when they flew. Finally, these creatures had something in their tails (like scorpions) that allowed them to hurt men for five months.

Demonic Possession May Explain Why Muslims Act Like This

Note the ecstatic movement and utterances. Numerous individuals have no trouble walking backwards without stepping on anyone, while others can’t do that. The look in the eyes is very important. There appears to be a heightened “blank” stare emanating from many, including the leader at times.

Message of Joel Chapter Three

Today’s Israel has but a small part of all the Land that God set aside for them. Even now, Arab nations (along with the UN and politicians in America and elsewhere) want Israel to give up even more of her Land to make way for a Palestinian State. God will have none of that. It is His Land and He gave it to Israel. He will fulfill His promises to Israel by making sure they enjoy all of their Land at some point in the future.
