What are the Seven Trumpets of Revelation 9?

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:

We elect a government; the president presides over that government.”

Ken Starr, former Independent Counsel

The adage, ‘Prophecy is history written in advance; history is prophecy fulfilled,’ is helpful in interpreting and understanding the seven trumpets of Revelation.  A quick review of well-documented world history, specifically of and during the reign of the Roman Empire composed of its eastern and western divisions clearly reveal the history that fulfills this amazing prophecy.    Read more

The tenth day of the seventh month: Sept. 23 or Oct. 22?

FRIDAY MORNING MANNA

The tenth day of the seventh month: Sept. 23 or Oct. 22?

QUOTE FOR THE WEEK

“Conditional prophecy is when the fulfillment is dependent on the compliance of those to whom the promise is made, with the conditions on which it is given.”

– Sylvester Bliss, “Commentary on the Apocalypse,” pp. 7.

WHEN is the Day of Atonement, commonly known as Yom Kippur?  It depends on what calendar one is following: the Rabbbinical Calendar which is based on the Oral Tradition or the Karaite Calendar which is based on the written text.

It is vital to remember that Jesus himself and all His disciples and apostles presented and defended the truth of the gospel based on “it is written,” not “spoken,” though they came by way of spoken voice of the invisible God or by the inspiration of the invisible Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Godhead.   Read more

Prophecies Regarding Current and Still-Breaking News

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“A classic motif of comedy is the small lies that require bigger lies to maintain the deceit, until the whole fraud collapses with the deceivers exposed.”

— Nick Newman, Yahoo Finance, July 20, 2018

Before we dive back to the latter part of our mini-series on the “death and resurrection” of the “Two Prophets/Witnesses” and the “beast that ascends from the bottomless pit” of Revelation chapter 11, we need to be periodically reminded— Read more

FRIDAY MORNING MANNA

The ‘beast that ascends from the bottomless pit’ and the Two Witnesses/Prophets–Part 1

“The holy city shall they tread underfoot forty and two months. And I will give power unto My two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth . . . And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottlomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified . . . . Read more

The Truth Regarding Peace: War is not a Necessity  

QUOTE FOR THE WEEK

“The greatest threat to American democracy isn’t Communism, jihadism, or any external force or foreign power. It’s our willingness to tolerate dishonesty in service, or party, and in pursuit of power.”

– Michael Bloomberg, former NYC mayor, commencement address, Rice University

————————–

No truly converted Christians will not tolerate dishonesty; neither will they make any compromises with the truth for “the sake” of some “good reason,” as in the perverted concept that has been applied to great lengths of abomination: “The end justifies the means.” Both means and end are Biblically indefensible and stands condemned at God’s judgment bar.

QUOTE FOR THE WEEK

“It is more palatable to human nature to do penance than to renounce sin.”

– Ellen G. White, 4SOP 383.

Are you finding yourself somehow attracted to the bigly distractions of political theater and stunts sweeping across America?  Do you find some kind of a twisted, guilty  pleasure of watching and listening to the “sounds of war” in both sophisticated and blatant lying, accusations and denials causing confusion that appear to rule the day?

The Council of Trent of 1562, Archbishop Del Fosso: How the Foundation of Roman Catholic Authority was Laid

Jesus told the religious leaders of His day: “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:  . . . In vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandments of God, you hold the Traditions of men . . . All too well you reject the commandments of God that you may keep your Tradition . . .  Making the word of God of no effect through your Tradition which you have handed down. And many such things you do.” Mark 7: 6, 7, 9, 13, N.K.J.V.

We are standing on the threshold of the Crisis of the Ages!

The first angel’s message: Fear God and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. Revelation 14: 6, 7, K.J.V.

Ellen G. White wrote in Patriarchs and Prophets, pp. 275-277:

    “There is coming rapidly and surely an almost universal guilt upon the inhabitants of the cities [like Sodom, Gomorrah, Nineveh, etc. in OT times] because of the steady increase of determined wickedness. The corruption that prevails is beyond the power of the human pen to describe. Everyday brings fresh revelations of strife, bribery, and fraud; everyday brings its heart-sickening record of violence and lawlessness, of indifference to human suffering, of brutal, fiendish destruction of human life. Every day testifies to the increase of insanity, murder, and suicide.   Read more
