THE MARK OF THE BEAST???Page 2 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
I'm sorry, but people have been anticipating and reading the second coming into the world since Jesus left the first time. I realize that there are supposed to be signs, but didn't the Bible also say that it will come unexpectedly?

I can see where you are coming from, but seriously? I'll be honest with you. I'm a big baby. I'm scared to death of dying. Not of where I'm going, but how I'm going to die. I don't want to feel it that long. Just BAM, dead. Plus... well... I kinda don't want to be stuck around much longer. I don't want to see myself as an old lady. But that's part of me. The other part wants to see EVERYTHING. I don't know... That's why I'm not God :D I would mess it up! Don't worry info. I know you aren't picking on me.

Bible Prophecy is simply human history written before it has happened! One third of the Bible, when written, was of people not yet born and of judgments and events that had yet to take place (Gen. 6:3; 12:1-4; 49:1; Dt. 4:27; 31:29; Jer. 25:1-14; Dan. 2:28-10:14; Ezk. 34-39; Hos. 3; Mic. 4-5; Mt. 23:13-36; 24:3-26:2; Rev. 1:19). There has never been a holy book, of any man-made religion, whether in the past or in the present, that has ever dared to predict future events or to describe people not yet born.

The fulfillment of Bible prophecy is indisputable proof that the men who wrote the Holy Scriptures were inspired by God (2 Pet. 1:19-21)! The significance and importance and relevance of Bible prophecy is such that the testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself is based upon it (Rev. 19:10b).

Bible Prophecy is given to edify and to encourage and to comfort (1 Cor. 14:3) all who are trusting solely in the finished work of Christ, by faith alone, for their salvation. Bible Prophecy is specifically given for believers (1 Cor. 14:22b). The study of Bible Prophecy should lead to a deeper spiritual life as it did for Daniel (Dan. 9:1-19).

Bible Prophecy confirms the fact that God has always told in advance what He was going to do and why He was going to do it and when He was going to do it. Those people, who in the past, chose to ignore and reject the prophecies of the Bible that were about them and their generation, were never able to avoid the consequences for doing so. It will be the same for all of the people, of our generation, who choose to ignore and reject the prophetic warnings of the Holy Scriptures that pertain to our day and age. Maranatha!!!

The Lord Jesus proclaimed, “But take heed; behold, I have foretold you all things” (Mk. 13:23). God does not change (Mal. 3:6; Heb. 6:17)!

Tony- I don't want to go down like my grandma who suffered for many years, then got cancer and died. Sure, she was in a coma for a while, but just the whole thought of suffering like her and having my kids take care of me scares me lol.

because the rapture will happen before that. The trumpets will sound... then the tribulation. And that's a part of all of that. Do you think we will? And if so, why?

I will try to find this in scripture if u like, but this is the way I was tought...

Jesus will come back for the believers in Him but He will be in the sky only... Then the tribulation will happen, and the battle of armageddon will be the next time he actually steps foot on earth again and that battle will be so bad that the blood will be up to the horses bridles. Any of that sound familiar? And if so, what verses is that again? Im blanking out...

^^ as much as I like tattoos I'd never get that for anything in the world. I'm not going to spend eternity in Hell

Off Topic- I DO have a question though. The people who get saved after the 2nd coming of Chris... do they have to be martyred?

And Jesus will be here 3 times total I think (4 if you want to include the new earth)

1) man
2) rapture (in sky)
3) battle

Did you ever see the Left Behind movies, funn1? They are pretty good. And they show how (from the Bible p.o.v.) it will be. But I don't think Jesus will literally come like a lion or a lamb. I think they mean lamb as in soft and gentle and lion as in agressive and assertive. But don't mark me on those words! That's just my opinion. I think the key works are "Come like a..." But who knows. I'm still trying to find what I can on the end times. If you go to rbc.org, there is a book you can get on the end times for free it's pretty good. Check it out.

Can you tell me where in the bible it talks about the 7 years of tribulation? Or where it says Jesus is coming 3 times? I would really like to know I cant find them.


In Revelation. I'm going to have to look up EXACTLY where tho...

Because asb, the entire passage is talking about the Messiah, how can you take the end of it put it at the end of time some place and say its about the antichrist?


Because he will try to mimick Jesus. That's what Satan does. I can't explain now for I have to go, but I will.

the old testament dealt with a physical world the new testament deals with a spiritual world, so when u say that the mark of the beast is a tangible mark, indeed a tatoo of somekind i think u are wrong, i believe the word mark of the beast means some "tell tale sign" like mascara, or all look alike. If i make u a believer of jesus christ and that affects your whole life then i have made a mark, so to speak, on your life, the mark of christ, but if i convince u of a doctrine of devilry then u could say u have a mark of a beast upon you. Come out and be seperate from among them does not mean move to a tent in the forest.
