Signs of the Times. . . Have Changed: ‘Guns and God: Growing Number of Churches Want Armed Security’

Signs of the Times. . . Have Changed: ‘Guns and God: Growing Number of Churches Want Armed Security’

     “The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them.” Psalms 34: 7, K.J.V.   

Beginning after Pentecost, A.D. 1, the church (in contrast to the world), founded upon Christ as the Rock and Foundation by the first Twelve, undergoes its prophesied periods. It is now in its seventh and final remnant period, symbolized as the “Laodicean church,” spiritually lukewarm yet militant.” See on Revelation chapters 2 and 3.

All throughout its different yet successive periods, particularly now in its commandment-keeping, remnant stage, the faithful of each period who kept the flame of truth burning, well-understood and faithfully applied apostle Paul’s injunction, which says:

What Happened to the Movement Linking the Exodus and Advent Movements?

 “Thus says the Lord: Keep My justice, and do righteousness, for My salvation is about to come, and My righteousness to be revealed. Blessed is the man who does this, and the son of man who lays hold on it; who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, and keeps his hand from doing any evil.” Isiah 56: 1, 2, N.K.J.V.

We saw that the Protestant Reformation Movement was the connecting link between the Exodus in the Old and the Advent Movement in the New Testament.  God commanded the gospel prophet, Isaiah, to declare then and more specifically in in its antitypical application: “Cry aloud, spare not; lift up your voice like a trumpet. Tell My people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.”

Tracing the Advent Movement from Its Embryonic Origins

God still works in mysterious ways. This past Sunday evening, as I sat in front of my computer, my eyes wandered on its own towards a faded, soft-bound book squeezed between larger books arranged in my computer’s book shelf. (I am old school, preferring to read directly from the book itself where my fingers can feel its pages and hear the soft, rustling sound as I flip through them. Sorry. E-books deny me this satisfaction).

Second Half of the Seven Thunders: the Moral Fall of the Churches

This Thanksgiving, let’s thank God for religious liberty and helping us better understand what the “seven thunders” were–a delineation of clustered events and time prophecies that would be understood only after the events had accomplished their appointed work. These are: Read more

The ‘Seven Thunders’ portray prophesied events within the prophecies of the first and second angel’s messages

The ‘Seven Thunders’ portray prophesied events within the prophecies of the first and second angel’s messages

       Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle (dove) and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but My people know not the judgment of the Lord. Jeremiah 8: 7, K.J.V.

SEVEN is a significant number in the Bible. It denotes perfection and completeness, and is often referred to as God’s number. It suggests the height of: purification, worship, the gospel light, Spirits, seals, trumpets, angels, heads and crowns, plagues, and kings. On the other hand, thunder, literally a sound produced by lightning is figurative of God’s power (Job 26: 14); control (Ps. 104: 7); majesty (Rev. 4: 5), and visitations of judgment (Rev. 11: 19).   Read more

America and the Papacy in Prophecy and in the News Today

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

   “The spirit of liberty went with the Bible. Wherever the gospel was received, the minds of the people were awakened. They began to cast off the shackles that held them bond-slaves of ignorance, vice, and superstition.  They began to think and act as men.”- E. G. White, “The Bible and the French Revolution,” Great Controversy (1911 ed.), p. 277.

Lest the remnant people of the last days, clearly identified in Revelation 12: 17 and Rev. 14: 12 become caught–up, side-tracked, or misled by deft deflections in all the crush of head-line –grabbing news,— Read more

How France, One of the Ten Toes of the Western Roman Empire Fulfilled Very Specific Prophecies

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:

“Those who make war on heaven make graves for themselves.”

– George Storrs, Midnight Cry, 1843.

The forty and two months of Rev. 11: 2 is the same prophetic period denoted as “three days and a half.” Rev. 11: 11. A day in prophetic time is equivalent to a literal year of 360 days. That we have amply shown earlier in (a) the reckoning of flood in Genesis and (2) the time prophecies of Daniel and Revelation, all within and ending on the year 1844 of the 2300-day prophecy of Daniel 8: 14.
