I would like to pose a question to the I.
in all humility,
touching on this statement the I made,
" Belief, Faith, Hope, Expectation, Anticipation, are all the same, they all have the same meaning,
they all depend on time and revelation, to reveal themselves to those who put their trust in them.
Speaking of the Creator, those of us who believe that the Creator is going to come down from heaven or Zion, and Judge everyone upon the face of this earth, and send 144,000 people to glory, and burn up the rest of the people who are living upon the face of this earth, that is just a belief, which was picked up in the book of revelation in the bible. We read it and we believe it, but we just cannot prove that it will take place, until it takes place. So we all have to believe, and wait to see if that belief is true or false, just like we do in other cases of believing. "
can the I show in scripture,
in the book of revelation where it
says that only 144,000 will make it to zion,
and the rest will burn with fire?
a next thing,
in Matthew 24,
Christ himself describes the end of the age ( or world ),
and according to his prophecy,
things seem to be moving along right on schedule.
wars & rumors of wars
earthquakes in diverse places
the love of many turning cold.
people declaring christ is here,
do InI really need more proof,
for what He spoke is being proven
before our eyes,
is it not?
